Yay for Long Weekends!

Well, Thursday has finally arrived! Tenlee and I have anxiously been awaiting our weekend trip to the Lake. Our plan is to leave this afternoon...I get done at 4-pickup Tenlee, and we are off! Hopefully rolling into town around 1 am. Still nervous to see how Tenlee will do in the Murano (thanks to my sister for letting me borrow her more reliable and "classy" vehicle)-but not to fear, I have movies galore, drawing boards and lots of snacks packed to keep her entertained while she isn't napping. Me, I have an updated iPod to keep me awake at the wheel and a GPS that I can yell at while it tries to take me the wrong way thru Iowa. I tried programming the darn thing this morning and it won't find the route I am used to taking...I'll get there eventually! No worries.

Well everyone, have a great weekend-we shall return on Sunday. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures...I can't wait to visit with my MO friends again!!

Missouri...are you ready for this? ;-)

Caution: Busy Week!

So far, we are having a VERY busy week. Tenlee and I are getting ready to head to the Lake of the Ozarks this weekend. We've been busy packing and preparing ourselves for our long 8 hour drive. Hopefully, with a few movies and an updated iPod, we will be just fine. I'm finally looking forward to it...after having to prep myself and give myself a little confidence booster-that, YES-I can do this!

It's going to be a great weekend to get away and catch up with some friends. Tenlee is looking forward to meeting Katelyn, Age 5 (April's daughter) and playing and doing what little girls do!

Wish us luck!!! Be back Sunday!

Attempting to Potty Train

Well, the past 24 hours have been a little tough! But I'm managing. Tenlee's (non) "dad" has been a real jerk! I think I may be getting sick again...and Tenlee is peeing all over the house! Yes, we have started the all-dreaded potty training, and she is really getting the best of me! She is such a little stinker as she knows just how to push my buttons-she loves it; me not so much! Right now, she is just enjoying the wiping and flushing part of potty training. This morning after spending 15 minutes in the bathroom and 3 seperate attempts at "going potty" she decides she's done; takes three steps out of bathroon and pees on the carpet. She thought she was hilarious! Hopefully progress will be made soon.
On a better note-we are on night 4 of sleeping in her own big-girl bed; and she is doing great!!! As usual, it is a slight struggle to convince her it is time for bed-but once she's in there...she stays AND sleeps all night. Yay! She sure is growing up fast! Not to mention, knows way too much for her age-but I wouldn't want it any other way, she's the best!

Read at your own risk...I'm not going to leave anything out!
