Zoo-me Fun!

Isn't funny how my kids enjoyed looking at the zoo map and finding their way around more fun than actually looking at the animals!!

-Look the elephant is making a cartwheel!!

-Not now mom! the map says tigers are next! 

 ....just like the cardboard box story. 



 I like kids, they give you a very different perspective in life, plus you take them to the Zoo, feed them some lunch, give them a few coins for a carousel ride and Ta-Da! YOU ARE A HERO! 

(only for your kids, tho!) 

...but really if I ever do something heroic for someone I hope its for them or anybody's kids. They are just the most amazing people in this planet!

Let them know!

Easter Fun!

Easter is my favorite holidays! I know its kind of weird but I may not be the only one out me!
This year my kids are old enough to finally start an old tradition of us...
an egg fight! or as my girl put it "pinata eggs!" 

It's lots of fun and I am thinking would make this holiday a kid's favorite! 


A friend also put together a super cute Easter party for the kids, she did an egg hunt around her house and had the kids guessing where the next clue was.

Cutest Owl Party {Fiesta de Buhos}

 My friend just had the cutest owl party for her 2 years old baby girl. She is amazing she did the cake, the piñata the owls and all the table decorations (which I don’t have pictures off), the food...everything!  It was fun for the little ones (and grown-ups) …and everyone got to go home with the cutest owls!

 {Mi amiga acaba de tener la fiesta de búho más linda para su niña de 2 años. Ella hizo el pastel, la piñata las lechuzas (buhos) y todas las decoraciones de mesa (sorry, no fotos!) la comida...todo! She is incredible! Fue divertido para los más pequeños (y los adultos) ... y todo el mundo se fue a casa con los búhos más lindos!}

 Doesn't she have the cutest ideas?! 


 Owl be your friend!

Happy Halloween 2012!!

We just finished hiding the rest of the candy and hopefully we are all done with what it felt like a two day candy-thon...

 This year we tried a new strategy (apparently supported by a friend of a friend who happens to be a dentist... Don’t you just love these things!)


We let the kids eat all you can eat (candy) for tonight and the rest we would:

 “throw it away” 


(but in reality we save it for “emergencies” and potty training motivations...yes we are great parents!)


Well apparently it’s less harming (for the teeth...of course) to eat all at once than one or two candies per day…

(and today for the first time I realized not having close nutritionist/doctors friends could be actually a good thing!) …bobbling again…


We were just celebrating “no cavities day” this week and believed me… I wasn’t going to risk it (and if you saw my kids at the dental office you would totally agree with me on this one!)   


Anyways that trick started to work after an hour…they started giving us their candy away or just open-tasting-don’t like it sort of thing… by the end of the night and after running around the house like racing cars, they willingly and humanly put the rest of the candy in a plastic bag, cleaned their teeth very well and went to bed… it is amazing how exhaustive sugar rush can be! 


And so I am happy to report all candy has been seized, and we had another happy Halloween full of blessings and good memories, hope yours were awesome too!

Before and After (Thrifty) TV Console

 Although I prefer "creative" 
...frugal may be one of the adjectives that describes me. 

We were in need of a new TV console with lots of storage 
and I spy this old chests at a little thrift store on the side of the road, 
I went inside and a lower price closed the deal. 
 I got a quarter of gray oil paint and that did the trick
... a new home for my TV (and lots of storage)

for less than $50!

Good day friends...
and thank you for visiting and catching up with my blog!

Happiness is a Fish

Happiness likes water, either we are cleaning the car or taking a walk in the canyons, she is always looking for the opportunity to get wet. At this point I know I always have to have some dry warm clothes for her in the car...she is counting on it. 



She is fascinated with water 

and I am fascinated by my kids enjoying nature's gifts...



Feliz Dia de la Independencia!!
