Five on Friday.

We have had the busiest, but most fun week! Since Sunday we have had - a Church Council meeting, t-ball practice, a t-ball game, regular church stuff, Financial Peace class, Bunco, regular errand-running, regular preschool shenanigans, tonight we're going to the rodeo, we're headed to the farmer's market and to ride the train this weekend and tomorrow night I'm going with my girlfriends to a painting party and Eddie is going with the boys and the other men {of the girlfriends} to play and eat pizza. Something every single night = children who do NOT like to go to bed at a decent hour {they're WAY wound up when we get home} but NEED sleep...and they're getting up way too early as well. Sheesh! I'm going to remind them when they're teenagers who would like to sleep all day that they should've slept at 2 and 4.

1. First of all, it's WILD WEST DAY at school today. Ohhhh, we've had a lot of fun with this one! The boys were SO excited. We had every bit of these costumes at our house aside from the $1 sheriff badges I picked up at the Dollar Tree this week. Bonus? We may keep these clothes on to go to the rodeo tonight! Win, win!

2. James and I started Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this week and he thinks it is SO funny. I can't wait to finish it up and watch the movies. Eddie won't watch with us - he thinks they're creepy. :)

3. I saw this video earlier this week and LOVED it. What an awesome surprise. We were just talking in Financial Peace this week about how wonderful it would be to get to a place where you can bless others because you're not worrying about your own finances. Somebody did this one right! While we're on the topic of internet videos, check out this one of Kristen Bell singing Do You Want to be a Snowman. She was perfect for the role of Anna. Who knew she could sing?! {Maybe everyone but me...} Something EVEN CUTER that I really need to try to get on video is that James will knock on the door now {if he's outside playing or coming in from being with Eddie somewhere} and start singing, "DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN? Or ride our bike around the halls?" and will wait for me to sing with him or be Elsa. SO funny.

4. I am SO EXCITED to be on the Easter Party committee for James' preschool party. Ugh, does that sound ridiculous or what? I love Easter and I love a party and since I can't have one at my own house {limited seating!} I have to take the party planning where I can get it. I signed up to take plates and napkins and to make Rice Krispy Treats. I got the napkins, forks, and spoons done this week. Tell me this isn't cute! {Tell me also that you know what they are. James didn't.}

5. Eddie and I are considering quitting our cable service and going with a Roku 3 or Amazon Fire TV service. Do any of you have this? Do you like it? I would love to hear how you watch TV! Our cable service has made us MAJORLY unhappy.

Happy Weekending, y'all!

I have no clue what Roku is but we use Netflix and Amazon Prime and we can stream stuff on the Xbox. It has its pros and cons but we havent had cable and we dont feel like we miss much...granted, we dont watch much tv but also can watch stuff on the internet a day after it airs.
