Sailing we will go......

Usually Saturday mornings mean up early and outta the house with NO kids to hit the garage sales.....but tomorrow we are having our 2nd annual Elm Street garage lets hope I will be making $$ instead of spending it.....and hopefully Savannah will not be given TONS more than she parts with from all the neighbors like last year =)

Wish me luck!!! Trying to get everything hauled downstairs and have not even started pricing or setting up so it will be a LONG night!

Savannah Banana Funny girl!

Sometimes kids say the funniest things.....having a bad day stressing out about jobs, $$, everything! I am putting Savannah to bed tonight after fighting with Emmie for 45 minutes to get her to sleep I was done! We are laying there and I tell Savannah its time to be quiet because we have preschool tomorrow and need to get to sleep. She starts talking about preschool, when will summer break start, when does summer school start... then kindergarten and when does she go there, yadda yadda....she turns to me and asks "mom do you know where I get to go after kindergarten?" I said "Where honey?" "COLLEGE" she replied with a big grin on her face! Where she came up with that I have no clue but how cute is she? I told her you have to go to 1st grade and all the way up till 12th before college and she seemed ok with that! =)

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!! I was trying to make myself get in the habit of a quick post everyday but yesterday slipped away! I need a holiday after our holiday weekend! HA HA!! Parade was fun, Emmie's first one and Savannah is a pro by now and gets so excited for them!! We saw lots of friends up in Caz which is always nice, makes me thankul for living here and reminds me why we made the choice to move so far away from AZ! I miss my family like crazy all the time but this is the right spot for us to raise our girls! In this picture with Savannah and Emerson is Olivia a daughter of some great friends who is just a little younger than Emmie so we always say they will grow up to be BFFs! =)

Biker Babe!

Big day in the Barilla house..Savannah got her first big girl bike! We picked it up last night from a friend for only $20!!! She is doing really well on it around the patio and in the house, yes we let her bring it in the house and ride it this morning since it was raining! We plan to go for a ride tomorrow to see how she does on the road!

Ballet Farmer!

We were working outside today...mulch for the flower beds, pulling weeds...all that fun stuff and Savannah had her shovel, rake and wheelbarrow helping me right along...she stops and looks at me from on top the mulch pile and declares that when she grows up she is going to be a ballerina and when she is not in ballet class she will be farming! So cute and I didn't even know what to say! Love those funny little moments with her and already fear the day she goes off to kindergarten this baby is growing up way to fast, everyone warned me it would happen but I didn't believe its all happening before my eyes!
