Yay, the kids are Back!!

After a long week of the kids being gone to Donner Lake with my parents, the kids are finally back. My good friend Kate was driving down to LA and stopped through Elk Grove and picked up the kids!! What a fun reunion, my kids and a Kate and her kids. The house was no longer quite, I loved it!!

What to do when Tyler and Molly are away???......

You always think that sending your two oldest away for a few weeks is a good thing until you realize that you are the one that then needs to entertain the 3 year old!!! Tyler and Molly left last Friday for a fun week up at Donner Lake with My parents!! They are having a blast and I am so glad that they got to go!!!

Ellee is not so happy. I guess I'm boring because she keeps asking every morning if today is the day that Tyler comes home. I tell her no and then she asks if she can go to a friends house? What's up with that.
Maybe its the fact that the older kids are gone and now I'm listening to her all day, or maybe she just got funny over night, but she is saying some of the funniest things.
She changed out of her clothes today and came downstairs and told me she wanted to go "sprinkling". (she saw the sprinklers on and decided she wanted to run through them)
I told her to go asked dad if he would watch her, since I was making dinner. She came back in and said, Dad's "computering" he said no!!
Such fun new vocabulary she's giving us!

Disneyland with Molly

The Monster's Inc. Ride. One of my favorites. This really is a cute ride. Dad got hit on by Rozz.
We went to Arial's Grotto for dinner. Such a fun place to go when you have princesses of your own.
At the Anne Geddes Store in Downtown Disney. Molly loves these dolls. She really wanted one. Too bad they are $200.00.
The New Toy Story Mania ride. It was really cool. We loved it so much we went on it 3 times. Long wait and all.
The girls were so tired after a long day of riding rides that when we sat down to wait for the parade they fell asleep. It was so funny, they were out within minutes.

The big summer movie of 08' Walle. Look how cute he is. 
Don't know why I have this picture posted twice.
Right inside of Adventure Land.
We went to ESPN Zone for dinner. They have the best food there.

Big Thunder Railroad. Molly said this was her favorite ride this trip.

My friend Dana and I decided since we are both Disney Freaks we would take our girls for a few days to Disneyland. My mom and dad were there too!! It was so much fun. The girls were great and there wasn't any fighting, almost. After all it is the happiest place on earth!!

Our own little weed garden.....

It has been brought to my attention by Molly that we have a little weed "garden" in our backyard. For some reason I have always picked the weeds in our backyard until this year. I figured it was part of the "yard work" that Mark says is his responsibility. Well because I haven't done it the weeds continue to grow. So at church on Sunday the teacher was talking about God's creations, and the fruits and veggies that can be grown in our gardens. Molly told the teacher that we have a garden. A weed garden. Nice..... 

I guess I didn't realize how bad the weeds had gotten until I went out and inspected my back yard. Needless to say, I went right out to Target and bought some gardening tools and gloves for me and the kids. It took Molly, Tyler and I  about 3 hours of hard work in very hot weather to pull the weeds. It was a fun project working with the kids outdoors on it. Tyler said, "mom, your a great mom, you always know how to make chores fun!!"
I'm so glad that big project is done. However, it's sad that we no longer have a garden.
