What a day!

Friday morning started off at 3:30am when Hannah woke up. I fed her and got her back to sleep by 4 and everything was fine. Kyle's alarm went off about 6:30 and he got up. He opened our bedroom door and was like "uh, Sarah" so I get up and low and behold a pipe under our sink burst and our ENTIRE first floor of our town home was completely flooded! 2in from the kitchen all the way to the front door and it was seeping into our room and our bathroom was! I call maintenance, Kyle gets a sub and we start trying to save anything we can. The maintenance came and started water vacuuming everything. I took the kids to Kyle's parents to keep them out of the way. I am very grateful we have laminate floors and luckily we didn't have any electronics or anything on the floor. Really the only thing is the rug, I still don't know if the smell will leave it enough to keep using it. So, our place still smells like a basement...and the really annoying thing was they just thew all of our stuff in the garage. So when I got back I had that to deal with. But at least with all of this happening our couches were moved and cleaned under them and our carpet in the bedroom was cleaned! We are going to try a humidifier thing to get ride of the smell and my cleaning lady is coming Wed. so that should help too.

This morning went well. We go to MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) and it is a tone of fun! We left to be there by 9 and I was totally ready and doing well. I get the kids in their coats and run to my closet to grab my shoes. I wanted to wear my black shoes to match so I slip one on and then the other and take off. I was at the MOPS meeting for over an hour and I had my legs crossed. I looked down and saw I had on my blue flat shoe that had little decorative holes in it. "That's funny" I thought, "I thought I wore my black flats with the big flower on the toe to match." So I looked at my other foot and saw my black flat. Yes, that is right I wore 2 different shoes! I have never done that before!!! And it wasn't like they were similar, no, one was blue with holes and the other was black with a big flower!! hahaha!!! Really?!?!? I start laughing and of course had to tell the other moms I was sitting with. That's when you know you have 3 kids ages 3 and under when you wear 2 different shoes and I wasn't even in a hurry to get ready!!! Anyway, pretty funny stuff! You have to love being a mom!!

Mavs Game

For Christmas I got Kyle tickets to see the Mavs/Lakers play. Last night was the big event. As soon as Kyle got home we changed into our "Mavs gear" and dropped the kids of at Grandma and Grandpas. If anyone reading this doesn't have kids, you have no idea the feeling of joy it is to just leave the kids and have a night out. Not that I don't love them, I do terribly, but holy cow a night off is heavenly. Anyway, we went to a restaurant called the Cotten Patch. I love it because it has unlimited rolls which are divine (but I had to work super hard this morning in my workout to work those babies off!) We actually had a coupon for a free dinner for 2 which made the food taste even better!

After our fabulous dinner we drove downtown. We found parking for $15 bucks! And that was even farther away. Man those people have to make a killing charging each car 15-20 just for a few hours. Anyway we speed walked to the American Airlines Center and found our seats. We were probably about 15 rows from the top but we could still see everything. The worst part though was we were surrounded by Lakers fans! But they were all really nice even with that shortcoming.

The game was a lot of fun. The Mavs had the lead for like the first min then the Lakers took the lead for the rest of the first half. Half time was fun. They had these Flipper Guys from Memphis. It was amazing everything they could do. There were 4 of them and 3 were what you would expect. Very toned and muscular then the 4th guy was a big guy. No joke, like a gut and everything, but holy cow!he was so good!!! He was flipping across the whole court with the rest of them. It was impressive. They also had a Mavs Drum line that played throughout the game.

The 2nd half was really exciting. The Mavs made a comeback and took the lead. Cobe Bryant was really good hitting some amazing shots, but nothing really crazy. The game ended 109-101 or something like that. Great job Mavs!!!

I think the worst part about going to games and stuff is leaving with all the drunk crazies. And of course they were all Lakers fans, because Mavs fans would never act like that.....

We took the stairs down and once we hit the bottom level we could hear the drum line. I thought they were on the court again or something doing another show, but low and behold they were like right there with a crowd of people dancing. So of course Kyle and I joined in with dancing and yelling "Let's go Mavs!!" It was funny because there was this big black lady who was a Lakers fan in the middle dancing with the drummers. Then the guys that only wear underwear and paint themselves blue with white lettering on their chests (you know what I'm talking about, somehow the always seem to be at every sporting event) so, there were probably 5 of them and the all make a tight circle around her and start dancing. It was so funny!!! She was a good sport about it and they all even hugged afterward.

Then we came home to all of our kids asleep, what a perfect world!!! I forgot my camera though so we took some pictures at the house just to document the event. Again, it was a ton of fun and I'm excited for the next game!

family pics

It has been a long time since I have posted. So much has happened, and I honestly don't really feel like writing it all...haha...but over the Christmas holiday we had family pictures done in Ohio with my whole family so I did want to post some pictures. It was very interesting trying to work with a 3 and 2 year old who didn't really want to take pictures, but it is funny seeing the sequence of them so here some of them are....

ok, well i obviously need to work on my blogging. I wrote the first part, then put the pics up and they showed up before the words...whatever, it's all there somewhere....
