Busy Busy Bee!

We got a call last tuesday telling us we had 5 days to move if we wanted a new house. Due to the current issues in our old house of mold and kids being so sick, we took it. So last week consisted of an entire day thursday (6am to 10pm) of packing everything and taking stuff off walls, etc. To Friday (7am to 5pm) of loading trucks, weighing them and unloading them at the new house, to the past few days of unpacking, organizing and decorating. It's been a long week but we're finally getting settled in the new house! One of the many "joys" of military life is that you get short notices such as this one. Almost all of our neighbors got the same "exciting" phone call of a 5 day move. Here are a few pictures of the house before we moved in :)

Mr. Cody got his first big boy bed a few weeks ago. We got him a firetruck bed and he LOVES it. In the past week, he completely gave up his pacifier and is also potty training! He's growing up way too fast as well. Here are some proud big boy pictures in his new bed :)

My little Monkey is now 6 months old!

Tis the season for birthdays!!!

Kaseman and Bug are about to have yet another birthday each. I cannot believe how fast these kids are growing up! On Sunday, Kasy will be 9 years old. He is having his first big friend birthday party too. I'm excited yet nervous for it. I'm scared that not everyone will come and he will have to deal with the heartache of being disappointed on this birthday. I'm also afraid that he won't have as much fun as he thinks (he's really blown this up in his mind to be the best thing in the world), and that he'll be disappointed then too. I know it's life, but I really hope I can make this birthday the best birthday ever for him. He's growing up WAY too fast and he's really becoming a smart young man. This is his last year in single digits and I can't believe how big he is.
Bug will be turning 6 next friday as well. He is excited about his birthday too. We will be going to my husbands parents house for his birthday weekend for a little party.
Next week I will be making two sets of cupcakes as well and I'm trying to think of some creative ones that all of the kids would love. In the past I have made Cows, Pigs, and colors. The cows and pigs took a LOT of time, but it was SOOO neat to see all the kids get excited and Kasy was very impressed with his birthday cupcakes in class.

Anybody have any recipes for fun kids cupcakes that would be great for class????

Valentines Day!

So, does anybody have any fun and creative ideas for Valentine's day this year? I think with my boys, we're going to make some heart cakes and decorate them. Then we're going to make cards and fun little treats for the hubby. For school, Alex will be taking valentines with gummy bugs. His nickname is bug, so it fits LOL And Kaseman will be taking valentines with Fun dip! Anybody remember that stuff? I used to love the sticks LOL
