The Resurrection Story.... told by a third grader:

"Jesus sufficated himself for us 'cause we're bad people...well not always....but sometimes we do bad stuff.  So Jesus sufficated himself.  And then the Dementors came and Jesus' best friend Peter pretended he didn't know Jesus.  Then it got even worse because Judas told on Jesus and then Jesus had to die on a cross.  That's like a little 't'.  They put nails in his hands and then he died.  But he came back to life on Easter, not like a ghost though.  He wasn't a ghost.  He was a real person and the Dementors were happy and so was this lady named Mary.  It's a good story!"

Kids have such a way don't they?  I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

What I'm Loving Wednesday.....

I haven't linked up with Jamie for What I'm Loving Wednesday in awhile.  Time to get back on the wagon I'd say! :)

{ I'm Loving }

That my Victoria's Secret swimsuit came last week and I. LOVE. IT!!!  Now, if only I could convince myself to work out a little bit more so I'd have a dancer's body in it!

{ I'm Loving }

That this weekend is EASTER and I'm heading to my parent's house in Wisconsin.  I'm really looking forward to spending the holiday with my new little cousin, aunt/uncle, grandma and immediate family!  It should be a lot of fun!

{I'm Loving}

Modern Family and Better With You!  Seriously, after a crazy day there is nothing better than sitting down with a glass of wine to some AWESOME comedy! 

{ I'm Loving }

That after I finish this post, I'm GOING TO BED!!!  I have had far too many late nights lately and it's starting to catch up with me.  I can hear my bed calling my name!

As Always.... { I'm Loving }

My favorite little feline, Chloe! :)

(yes, she really jumped into the washer...what can I say, the cat likes to be clean! ;)

{ I'm NOT Loving }

The fact that it is April 20th and it SNOWED today!  Seriously?!?!  I'm SO ready for SPRING/SUMMER!!!!

What are you loving today?  Go link up!

Dear World,

I completely understand that today is Monday and Monday's traditionally tend to be a bit slower of a day.  (trust me, I'm rockin' a totally crappy hairstyle today because I was moving a bit slower than usual this morning.)  However, despite this, do you think we could attempt to speed things up just a little bit?  I mean really, Ms. Cashier, do you have to bag groceries at a snail's pace?  And Mr. Blue Sedan:  it's called a stop sign, not a stop and wait for ten minutes sign.  I've got an insanely busy week with a lot to get done.  If you could just help me out a little by speeding yourself up or staying out of my way, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks so much! :)

Farm Dramatic Play- complete with farm animals, hats, bandanas, stick horses, chicken hats, crops to plant and a cow to milk.

 Grass-heads, Our Schema Chart and Our Crops

 Muddy Pigs

Lima Bean Greenhouses

Farm Words Word-Wall

If I lived on a farm writing

Moo-velous Data and Cows at Night

It's been a busy couple of weeks to say the least!!!  Up next?  Easter!

Happy Birthday Chloe!

Guess who graduated from their terrible two's into their terriffic three's today?!

Ms. Chloe-Cat!

(we're calling that her birthday crown!)

We obviously celebrated this milestone today with lots of snuggling, playing, a yummy dinner (fancy feast appetizers-WET FOOD!) and a brand-new CATNIP hedgehog toy!  Can you say spoiled?!  She absolutely loves her new hedgehog fact, when I teasingly try to take it away from her, she smacks my hands away with her paws! 

Happy Birthday to my baby-girl, Chloe! :)

Tail Wagging Tuesdays!

Okay so I just found the cutest blog with an AWESOME new link-up for Tuesdays.  It's called Tail Wagging Tuesday and it's all about your favorite little fur-baby!  LOVE IT!  

This week's topic is your favorite picture of your pet.  When I saw the topic, I instantly knew which picture of Chloe I was going to post. 

This is Chloe when she was only about six weeks old and just a tiny ball of fluff!  She only weighs about 6 pounds now so she's still a pretty small cat but she was just so darn tiny in this pic.  Pretty sure I had this photo blown up and framed.....yep, I'm that kind of pet owner! :) 

Anyway, go link up to play along! 

Happy Tuesday!

Dancing with the Stars and Good Friends!

And it's another great night for Dancing with the Stars!  Can we just pause a second to talk about Kym Johnson's abs?!  Holy Hannah does that girl have ah-mazing abs or what?!?!  I think I maybe just found my newest inspiration to workout cause if I could get my abs to look even half that good this summer?  Well....let's just say I'd be one HAPPY girl!

Anyway, it was another great show tonight.  Kym and Hines were fantastic, as were Chelsea and Mark.  Next came the part of the night that'll be talked about nonstop for at least the next week:  Kirstie and Maks.  I felt so bad for them!  It was obvious from the replay that poor Maks' thigh just gave out and down they went.  Judging by the wincing he did for the rest of the dance, it wasn't Kirstie's fault and he really was hurt.  It was a shame but they still managed some decent scores, proving that Kirstie is a pretty good dancer.  They'll be back next week.  This was my favorite dance of the week:

In other news, we went out for Bekah's birthday this past weekend and had a blast!  Who would have thought going out in a small town could be so much fun?  Of course the theme of this little shindig certainly made it a lot of fun too!  HATS!  It didn't matter what kind of hat, everyone just had to wear one!  I'm not usually one to wear a hat but I fell in love with the one I picked up at Target this week.  I might become a hat wearer afterall!

Apparently Jacki had lost her hat by this point of the night!

The whole gang in front of the creepy bear!
