My love...oh I mean my phone!

Linking up with the lovely Marcia over at 123 blog "Show me your phone"!! She is a women with many talents. Totally check her out if you haven't already! :):)

I am breaking my blogging silence to share something with you that is very dear & special to me!! Yes, I am not afraid to express my love for my phone. This phone keeps me connected without taking time away from my family. As you know I work full time in front of a computer all day. The last thing I want to do is come home and get behind another one, but my hobby (that I heart) is keeping up with all my blogger friends! Love them!! With this phone I can do just that in the car (hubby driving), at lunch (job restricts Internet access using their computers), or lying in bed trying to go to sleep at night. It has allowed me to stay connected very easily!! The camera takes pretty good pictures most of the time that I can send directly to my blog. Yes, you read that right! I post directly to my blog with my phone a majority of the time. I LOVE this phone!! My kids love this phone! They are able to play with kid learning apps. These kids apps have expanded their knowledge in many areas. If you have not checked out a smartphone before I totally recommend it! I so wish I could say apple is giving me a iPhone 5 for expressing my genuine love for my iPhone 4, but that is not the case. Apple if you read this and want to do just that I am all ears!! There is so much I can say about this phone, but motherhood calls! :):)

I use & love the otter box case to protect the phone from any damage M or L might do to it! Or me for that matter! Ha!

Thanks Marcia for letting me share!! Happy Saturday everyone!!

It has to get better...

Hi my friends!! I wanted to drop a line to say hello and apologize for my lack of blogging! Life in general has been busy!! Typical busy summer time. It goes so fast! OK has been miserably hot! Everyday for the past 3 weeks has been way over 100, plus extremely dry! Not fun at all! Hope all is well your way! I promise to get back to my love of blogging and blog hopping soon! Miss you guys! I have been reading, just not conversing! :( Hope to "chat" soon!

In the mean is a pretty funny pic of my 2!!

ME Challenge - Week 29

Linking up with the lovely dollimama for the 52 week challenge!


WOW...What a week! Work was super busy! There was one day I didn't even see my son. I left before he woke and got home after he was asleep. That was BAD! Something that has only happen a hand full of times. Not sure if you have noticed, but I am a little attached to my kids!

I really don't think I did any one thing in particular for myself this week. I missed linking up last week due to an "off" week, so I really wanted to link up this week! :) I do have something I can share though...

As you all know my hubby is almost a stay at home Dad...Yes he has a full time job as a Firefighter, but his hours allow him to be at home approximately 20 days out of 30. Yes, his shifts are 24 hours long, but you get what I am saying! Hope this is not out of line for me to say, but with the SAHD title laundry comes with it! My Mom watches M & L the days that T & I are working. She is a saint to take the kids laundry on her plate those days! Yes, you read that right I do not do any laundry. Now on to the point of this story...I received a bonus a work, so what did I do with some it?!?! What only a good wife and daughter would do! I bought Daddy and Nannie a new washer and dryer!! Aren't I the best?!?! Ha!

Here are a few pictures from our h.o.m.e d.e.p.o.t fun last Saturday!

All in a days work...

Oh Lukester!!!! Why??? This boy is going to be the death of me!! I so should of named him in Dennis the Menace. He goes from making one mess straight into another! Crazy thing is he knows he is doing wrong, but for whatever reason can't help himself. I took a half day off today because hubby had to work on one of his days off (Nannie is on vacation), but I sort of still had to stay on the computer for work. This is no lie...I went through a roll of paper towels and close to a container of Clorox wipes in 4 hours! First thing he did was got the tub of body cream and painted my bedroom!! Yeah, mommy was not a happy camper! Sorry no pictures to share. Then he got daddy's brand new full BIG bottle of shaving cream and sprayed it everywhere!! Really?!?!

Makes my Monday - Sweet boy and pretty toes!

Linking up with Twinfatuation! Thanks so much Cheryl for letting me play along!

Anytime I can get my baby boy to lay and cuddle with me I take full advantage! We snuggled and said the ABC's together twice. Yes, you read that right...bub was still for longer than 5 minutes!! I so loved it!! I miss it already!! He is the sweetest boy! Please excuse the no makeup picture...

The special thing I did with sis was paint her finger and toe nails. I let her pick out what color she wanted the other day at the store. Of course she picked out hot pink first, but I reminded her that she already had that color at home. She then picked blue. I think she picked blue because of bubba. I usually always buy things in blue and pink, so I think she thought that would have to be the second choice. I tried showing her purple, but she insisted on blue.

These 2 things totally Make my Monday!

Fun photo of the month contest

Molly and Luke are in the Multiples and More photo of the month contest if you feel so inclined to vote for them! This is a pic I took of them on their first day of summer school.

Happy Sunday!!

Random...yes, I know!

I decided to post some randomness just so you would know all is well in the Mays Household. It has been awhile since I have went 5 days between posts, but it was another CRAZY week at work! I have kept up with my blog reading, but I can't say the same about comment making. I have tried, really I have. Maybe it is this heat wave that has planted itself over OK. I am so tired of the 100+ degree weather!! Is it fall yet?!?! Seems I am never satisfied, either it is too cold or dang too hot! Why can't the happy medium days stick around longer? It could stay in the 60's & 70's year around and not hurt my feeling one bit!

These first pictures are of the new trick my son likes to play! It gets real old really fast. By the third time of pulling the car over...well there really is no need for explanations. I am sure you know what kind of frustration I would be feeling by that time. Any advise? I think we have tried it all, but who knows? We always pull over immediately, so please no harsh judgement. I really think he likes the thrill of the chase. That little head of his is probably seeing how long it takes us to get him back in his seat! Oh how I love him, but he is all boy!! It is non-stop from morning until night! I so wish I could bottle his energy...I would be a millionaire, plus feel so much better! Ha!

These next 2 are of little Miss Priss being goofy. She played with this luggage forever! She kept asking to be pulled around. It was pretty humorous!

Can you believe I had a lady ask me if Molly's hair was natural?!?! I really wanted to say " heck no, this is her 3rd perm that I made her get for my own satisfaction"! For goodness sakes she is 3!!

Happy Friday!! Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)

One way to beat the heat....

Molly and Luke have had a blast this weekend playing in the water. Friday night Todd and I were watering the flowers, but Luke had other ideas. At first we were like no, but then realized why not?!?! It has been too hot to play outside during the day, so this was a way to burn some energy off! Then Saturday we visited Nannie and Granddad's house to play in the beloved small plastic pool. Nannie started the sprinkler to water her flowers, so Luke had to get in that fun too! Mom and I were setting in the shade watching them & burning up!! We so should have jumped in the kiddie pool to cool off!! It has been over 100 the past week and 7 day forecast to calling for the same. So very hot!!

These 3 pictures are from Saturday. Luke cracked me up because he kept chasing Molly with the water! Imagine that?!?! He may have a little of his daddy in him! Ha!

These are from Friday night...notice them fully dressed. Poor babies got stripped on the front porch. The fun didn't stop there because they played in my shower for another 30 minutes!!

Happy Summertime!! :) Hope everyone has a fantastic week!

She just got married, so I am pretty sure her lunch hours have been consumed with wedding planning and preparations!! :):) She actually had a destination wedding and has gorgeous beach pictures!!

Happy 4th of July

Molly and Luke wanted to wish everyone a very happy 4th!! Actually they just wanted to show off their cute, very cheap outfits! Of course mommy was too lazy to take a picture with the real camera, so all you get is these phone quality pics!

Then she thought she could get the prized kissing picture....

But instead Molly got this!!

What I love about me - Week 5

Linking up with the lovely Holly and the lovely Allison's " What I love about Me" Meme/blog hop.


So far I have taken the mommy route on this link up, so I chose to keep that theme this week!

I love that I like to have fun with my kids!! My Mom always (still does) had fun with me as a child, so I am more than happy to carry that trait on to my kids! Mom never cared what other people thought of her looking or acting silly. Guess what, I don't either! If you can't laugh, smile and act silly...what can you do?? I love playing with my kids and making them laugh until they plea for mercy! I heart the sound of that deep belly laugh!! Gets me every time!

Don't get me wrong we all know there is a time and place for play! I for one will take advantage of those situations every chance I get! What about you?!?!

Fun without Mom and Dad!!

One of my birthday presents from Todd was to take me to the 4th of July sales at the outlet mall in Allen, TX. I took off work yesterday, so we could head out early. Last year we took M & L, but this year decided to leave them with Nannie. That way we could get some much needed alone time, plus shopping would be much more enjoyable. This was the very first time I have ever left them over night. I missed them like crazy, but enjoyed the time just with hubby. Of course they were the topic of our discussion a majority of the time, plus on the receiving end of most of the shopping! I did make sure that I used all my birthday money I received on me! :)

I don't think M or L had time to miss us at all! My niece Kayla and her boyfriend Branden helped Nannie in the entertaining department! The below pictures are in opposite order of the events, but it will still work. Friday they went over to Nannie and Granddad's to swim and ride bikes. Then today they went to the park to play and feed the ducks! I know they had a ball! Todd and I express our thanks to Nannie, Granddad, Kayla & Branden for making the trip so much easier on us! We had a very grand time while our kids had a very grand time!! Fun times all around!
