Extreme Makeover~~Bunny and Duck Style

Easter is here! It is my favorite holiday by far. I saw these bunnies in a catalog, at $35-45.00 a piece, well that was out of my "Easter decorating budget". My mission began. I searched a few thrift stores and found these.

Now, I must say they looked to be in need of a little TLC. At, $1.21 a piece how could I not get them? So off to Lowe's I went to buy spray paint. $3.14 later here is my version of them...

Although, they are a little different, at just under $8.00 I am so happy with the finished result! Happy Easter!

Tickets to the Easter Egg Roll

Well, after all day of trying~~~we got tickets. We actually got tickets the the White House Easter Egg Roll!! WOW! It was the last batch! I am so excited that the boys will get to experience this! I am so excited that they will be part of a tradition that dates back to 1878. For us this is a once in a life time opportunity...I am not the person who would go back every year. Getting 3 tickets literally took me all day (I started checking @ midnight)! I am truly so thankful!

Mike's TDY

Well, we are almost 2 months into Mike's TDY. It has gone by pretty fast. We all have had such an "adjustment period." We talk to Mike pretty regularly and that seems to help. The boys love to video chat, it is a great Saturday treat! Here are a few things I have learned:

1. Ace has figured out the " I miss my Daddy + pouty face" will get him out of trouble~he's too smart.

2. I must follow a schedule! I can't fall off the wagon or the days a mess!

3. Aaron although only 7 is such a big helper.

4. Mike should have took the dog with him! HA HA! Man, he's cute but he's driving me nuts! Mike is going to loose it when he returns to find Rouge sleeping on his pillow :).

5. I miss Mike so much. He is truly my sole mate and best friend.

But, really all in all we are doing pretty good. We have our days and Mike has his. I am so thankful to have such wonderful friends. That has made this time in our lives so much easier.
