Yesterday we had to drop their Daddy off somewhere and they had to have their purses for the car.
Princess Linens also has the most adorable clothes. My favorite is the Garden Princess Dress in Green Hibiscus. They also have some very cute boys clothes. Princess Linens is offering my readers a 15% discount, just use the code SILLY when you checkout. I plan on using the code myself to get my niece a birthday present next month.

Every Wednesday my girls can't wait for the garbage trucks to come. Usually they come during breakfast and as soon as the girls here one of the trucks they run to the front window to watch. They have always loved watching the trucks come by. They love to watch them but refuse to go outside or even the garage if it is open when they come by. I have been taking the girls for walks in the morning with our puppy Chloe but I know better than to even suggest it on a Wednesday.

My girls wanted plain corn tortillas toasted in the toaster for a snack. They did not want anything on them, just plain. At least I got them to toast them, the day before they ate them straight out of the bag. They were so excited and kept telling me that they loved their 'Daddy Tortilla Picnic'. I like the flour ones so they are Mommy tortillas and the corn are Daddy tortillas since they are his favorite.

Now they have a wonderful website, Precious Moms.com , that has so many resources for planning celebrations like Anniversaries, Baptisms, Birthdays, Holidays, Baby Showers, Graduations, Weddings and First Communion. They offer tips, checklist, ideas and my favorite, printable invitations and thank you notes. My two girls always send thank you notes and these are so precious. They are so pretty I could see my girls printing some out and giving a set to their cousin for Christmas or her birthday. They can be printed in color but if you printed them in back and white your child could color them in.
I was sent an adorable Birthday Wishes with Hugs and Kisses figurine for Princess G's birthday. She will be tickled since she and her sister always want to hold mine.
Now for the best part you can win one too!! Just visit Precious Moms.com and tell me the featured product listed when you visit. They change all of the time. If you would like an additional entry blog about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with the link.

Worst Advice: OK this was from my Mother in Law "If you are going to do your child the disservice of breastfeed at least give it in a bottle!" I might add she said this while I was breastfeeding!

I have been trying for years to get my DH to take a walk with the girls after dinner. He always says it is a good idea but we rarely went. Now that we have our new puppy we go every night. We are even taking walks in the morning on the weekend. The new puppy Chloe never goes to the bathroom while we are on the walk we have to take her in the backyard when we get home. I guess we only needed a dog to take walks together. I will take what I can get, lol!

We had dessert for dinner tonight. We went to Cold Stone Creamery and the girls both got cotton candy ice cream. Princess A got sprinkles and Princess G got gummy bears. The gummy bears took so long to chew that everyone else finished long before she did. My DH and I got Banana Splits (I can't remember the real name). I got the idea from watching Jon and Kate Plus Eight, once a year they have ice cream for dinner. I mentioned it to my husband a few days ago and he said "Let's go tonight!" Well I had already started dinner so we went tonight. Originally I suggested once a year but we had so much fun tonight that it I hope it will become a monthly tradition.

To protect little knees when drawing with chalk have them kneel on garden knee pads. My girls love using them to kneel or just sit on.
