Ryan's Bday (20 of 137)
So my baby turned 5 on May 11th! I’ve been busy trying to turn my little hobby into a business, but I think the real reason I haven’t posted about Ry’s bday is because it makes me sad. :(. Where has the time gone?   My baby is 5 and going to Kindergarten in three short months.  I just can’t believe it, it seems so surreal!  Of course I was so excited for my sweet boy’s birthday, but this one was tough for me.

We started Ry’s birthday bash with my almost famous smiley face pancake breakfast and a Mickey Mouse Playhouse balloon-the boys are loving Mickey right now!  It gets me so excited for Disney!  2010 baby!

We decided to do Ryan’s birthday a little different this year…  If you read my blog last year, (have I really been blogging over a year?) you know we had a Firefighter theme party for his big 4.  Instead of a party we took Ryan, AJ, and his bf Mason to a little place called Amazing Jake’s

The boys had so much fun atRyan's Bday (137 of 137)!!!  Ryan drove the bumper cars on his own, rode all of the kiddie rides, played putt-putt, rode shotgun on the go-carts, and even attempted the climbing wall.  Chris & I had so much fun watching them run around and saying yes to (almost) everything.

AJ had so much fun being hooked up on the safety rope and “repelling” down.

Even Chris & I joined in the fun.  I was very eager to climb the wall.  I used to climb quite a bit when I lived in Mexico.  I climbed to what I thought was the top, but missed the very top by one stone.  It took me a bit longer than Chris and I won’t be showing my tush in a harness.  After convincing Chris to climb, he made it up so quickly the following picture is posed because he was all in competition mode and wouldn’t even turn around to take a picture.  Oh, those Green boys.  When I asked him if he remembered what his time was, his response was:  World Championship time.  Oh, those Green boys.

Kroger Mac & Cheese Taste Test

I wanted to really see what the BIG difference is between the various Kroger Mac & Cheeses.  So last night we had a taste test.  Now currently (from my memory-which isn’t saying a whole lot) we have the Value box at around 3/$1, but I think they just raised it a bit.  The Original for about $.50/box and Kroger’s Rich ‘n Creamy for around $.90/box.  While I would’ve liked to add a Kraft box to the test, my limit is under $1/box preferably around $.50.  Now if I have a coupon…that’s a different story, but it still has to be cheaper than the Kroger brand. 

So all the boys (minus Carson-we’re still working with rice cereal:) voted for the Rich ‘n Creamy.  And I preferred the Original, which took me by surprise.  Also, the Rich ‘n Creamy took twice as long to stir, which of course can be a factor when feeding ravenous boys!  Vote for your fav!

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kaela Green @ 2:02 am

I had to post pictures from Fossil Rim.  This place was crazy cool!  It’s about 2 hours south of Dallas.  You drive your car through and actually feed the animals by hand!  I was a bit nervous at first, but relaxed after the first few.  Although, I never did brave feeding the ostrich.  The picture we got was the one that bit AJ.  The first animal we meet and poor AJ winds up with an ostrich bite.  That freaked Ryan out so badly that he sat in the back of the van until the last 1/2 of the drive.   He wanted to sit up with us to feed the giraffes.  They were our favorite.  God’s creations never cease to amaze me!

 

 

Here’s the Cheetos Story…

On the way home, the boys were given a little Cheetos snack on the way home.  We heard them crunching away.  Then I heard less crunching and decided to check it out.  AJ is completely passed out with orange fingers and the Cheetos bag right next to him.  Almost as if he’s guarding it.  He stays like this until we’re about 15 minutes from home.  We hear crunching again.  Again I check.  AJ is half awake and half asleep munching on Cheetos.  A few minutes later the crunching stops and he’s asleep again.  This happens two more times.  It was hysterical!  I love my boys!

My mother-in-law is one of the most talented people that I know.  She is an artist of all kinds and she makes the most amzing pottery!  Her coffee mugs are quite a hit with our friends that stop by.  I’ve decided to call them “Mugs by MAG”.  She had a birthday this week and I wanted to wish her a Happy (belated) Birthday!
