WW: Silence = Trouble!

Silence is extremely rare in our house. So, when the boys went quiet, I went to investigate, and found this...
 Stuck between the wall and his crib. 
Life is always an adventure with two boys! :)

Happy 30th Birthday Tony!

Today was a super special day, my husband turned 30 years old!

We had an unexpected, yet wonderful relaxing weekend. The boys came down with a horrible virus last week, which ended up being Hand-foot-and-mouth disease. Fun times, not. So, we were put on "quarantine", while contagious rash period passes, putting the Birthday plans on hold.


I, however, didn't want Tony's BIG birthday be a bust, so I went all out decorating the house and car after Tony went to bed. He woke up shocked and in awe! 

SURPRISE
 That's a lot of candles.. and that's a lot of smoke! ;) 
 Thumbs up for yummy ice cream cake!
Giovanni was TIRED and FULL! 
Haha. He loved the special treat!

5 Kids Meet Finger Paint


A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a little mommy/kid date at our house, to kick off the summer. And what's crazier then having 5 kids under 5 come over and break out the finger paint?! Haha.. it actually was wonderful. My friend Tabb shared a super easy and gooey homemade finger paint recipe, that we of course had to try! (I'll share in another post) 


Hmm..what to paint..what to paint..
Giovanni LOVED it!! And loved to taste it. ;)
 Gio's masterpiece!
 Dominic really hates his hands dirty..
Finger paint fail. ;) 



Let the summer begin!

WW: Splashed!

"Hey, what's going on over here?"
                                         "Cool, what are we waiting for?" 
                                                       "S-P-L-A-S-H!!"
 "Oh..."

Dominic had no idea what he was getting into ;)

It's Official!

We are CLOTH DIAPERING!!
Okay, okay. So, we've been cloth diapering, here and there since Giovanni has been born. But we never had a "big enough" stash to do it full time. However, this weekend, my friend introduced me to a woman, who sells cloth diapers for $6-7 a diaper! They are brand new, good quality diapers too! She gets the overstock, non-selling diapers for a low low price and sells them out. I couldn't believe it! We have only used Fuzzibunz diapers, which are $20 a diaper. CRAZY expensive compared to these and they have no fun patterns. Needless to say I bought five and ordered a couple more. So far we are loving them!
                                    Look at these fun patterns, how awesome!
