I'm hungry!

Is constantly overheard at our house lately. I bet I hear I'm hungry from Jake at LEAST 100 times a day. I don't think I'm exaggerating, either. I think he has hollow legs. I told Rob today that we are in big trouble when he's a teenager!

Happy Birthday, Jake!

Today is my baby's Birthday. I can't believe he is 4 already!

Jake at about 1 month old

Right around his first Birthday. He wasn't feeling too well.

2 years old!

Right after his 3rd Birthday. He got a SpiderMan costume and that's his Spidey pose!

This was taken about a month ago.

Weekly Wrap Up

I completely forgot about the weekly wrap up til I visited Getting Ahead tonight and saw her post. I can't think of much I did this week, but there are a few things.

1. I haven't drove as much because we have decided to have Si ride his bike to and from school, so that saves me on gas! He doesn't mind because he gets to school a bit earlier and has time to eat breakfast there, which he says is really good, so it's a win-win! We also canceled 2 of his appointments, so I didn't have to drive.

2. There really wasn't much on sale, so I didn't do any coupon shopping, which means my coupon money got rolled over, so when a really big sale (like the hamburger sale a while back) comes around again, I have some extra money put away.

3. We made a deal with Si and Jordyn and bought them a Nintendo DS to share (I think mom just might borrow it sometimes, too!). I know that's not very frugal, but we've been thinking about it for a while. To make that purchase frugal we took my mil, Jan, with us to purchase it and we used her 10% employee discount. I think that saved us about $20. Thanks, Jan!

4. Oh, one more thing! Again, not very frugal, but with a frugal element. I have been wanting to get Guitar Hero for our Wii and Rob found one on eBay (brand new) for half the price. Gotta love eBay!

I started this post thinking I wouldn't have much to say, but ended up rambling quite a bit! Those of you who know me are probably used to that! ;)

Why is it when

Dad sleeps in, the kids leave him alone, but when Mom sleeps in someone comes to bug me every 10 minutes?

On a funny note, this morning Rob was dozing in the chair and Jake came up to Rob saying, DAD, I'm bugging you!!! LOL. He cracks me up!

I mean big boy

Today I was on the phone with my sister, Bridget, and I said something about Jake being the baby. Right after that I heard his voice pipe up from the kitchen, NO, NOT baby, little boy!!! It was so funny!! I guess since he will be 4 in about a week i need to stop calling him baby, right? Wrong!! He will always be my baby and I told him so.
