Chore Chart

The 3 year old has chores!! I was finding some of the easiest of tasks were becoming such a fight, so I am attempting to find some positive reinforcement. Here are the chores she has to do on a daily basis:

1. Get dressed
2. Put away clothes
3. Feed Zeeta
4. Pick up toys
5. Brush teeth
6. Make bed
7. Get PJ's on
8. Brush hair
9. Brush teeth
10 Go potty before bed

Each week she can earn $.75. There are 3 containers in which the money is divided. One "Save" Two "Spend" Three "Give". So far so good!!

What a wonderful day!! Mom had a beautiful table setting outside, there was the grown up table and the kids table. Finally, I am not sitting at the kids table any more. Mom made salad, ham, asparagus, corn casserole, bunny bread and a yummy dessert. The girls enjoyed a egg hunt in the backyard. The girls had enough candy to last the entire year, or until I get a hold of it.

My Calla Lillies

My mother-in-law gave me my first calla lilly plant, as a gift after we got married. Calla lillies were the flowers we used in our wedding and I just wait with anticipation to see them bloom. For some reason last year, there were no blooms. This year I have two so far. I will enjoy them as long as I can!

1st Camping Trip

First tent camping with the kids. We went to Parker, AZ and stayed at the Buckskin Mountain State Park. What a beautiful camping grounds!! We drove to Havasu on Saturday and it just so happened there was a dirtbike race in town. The girls loved sleeping in the tent and playing in the dirt. The next camping trip will be very soon.

To do list

1. Get my windshield replaced!! A nice (not a mean one) rock hit the lower left side of the windshield. Then, with the increase in temperture the crack has now moved to the middle. Hopefully by tomorrow I have a new windshield.

2. Fix the sprinkers. One of the many drips in the back yard has blown off and when the sprinkers come on, it waters all the rock area. So, I turned off the system, but the flower up front don't get water. Again, with the increase in temperture I don't want my flowers to die.

3. Dear husband has been asked to build a fence along the side yard. Our German Shepherd loves to sit at the front gate and bark. Especially at all the cats in the neighborhood. We have already recieved a warning letter from the city about our excessive barking dog.

4. Pack for my trip, by myself to sunny San Diego!!!

5. Clean the house. I don't want to bore you with all it entails. Just a lot of work.

6. I am sure there is a lot more things to do, but for today this is enough.
