Poppy (my dad) came to visit for the weekend. GG (Grandma Lesta) also came too! Poppy made this great swing set for a present for Andrew's birthday. As you can see Hannah is getting to enjoy the present too. The kids are going to have a BLAST swining in the comfort of our own backyard all summer. Thanks Poppy and Nana Jane!

We had a great day with Andrew. Josh got off work and we had a real family day. Grandma and Grandpa's package arrived early this morning with a Toys R us gift card and we set off to get some great deals. We also ran a few small errands and then ate at McDonalds for Andrew's birthday lunch. After nice long naps we ate birthday cake and opened presents!
Here are a few pictures of the day. I have also attached a link HERE to my snapfish album with all 40 birthday pictures for you to enjoy if you choose.

Hannah is in the running to win free chick-fil-a for a year with her cute cow photo. Click this link here to see Hannah's picture and vote. You must click the vote icon, fill in your basic name and city, state and e-mail. Then will send you an e-mail to confirm your vote (mine went to spam so check there if you don't get the e-mail right away). Thanks for helping us win free chicken!!
I think Andrew ate more food at Chick-fil-A than Hannah did. She was too obsessed with looking and waving at "the cow". Andrew meanwhile gave the cow a few cute smiles and went on eating his food.

We don't have very many pictures from our weekend. It pretty much rained straight through Saturday and Sunday.
Because (Uncle) Wade, and Kolby and Andrew Nordine were visiting with us I let Hannah skip her nap. Just before 7pm the kids had their baths and got into their jammies. Hannah decided to sit on Daddy's lap after brushing her hair. Next thing we know she is asleep!
And just in case you wanted to see a picture of me in this post, here it is. Josh persuaded me to get my hair cut short...!

So I have been meaning to post great deals I have gotten over the past few weeks, as well as one of my new favorite super quick and easy meals!
Let's start with the great deal I got at Kohl's. Recently we got a $10 gift certificate towards any Kohl's purchase. Looking around the store we noticed they had Fisher Price toys 40% off. This Fisher Price School Bus was regularly around $18 and after our discounts the total came to $9.84. We used our $10 gift certificate and got this toy for FREE! (Happy Birthday Andrew!)
The next deal is Old Navy. They had a special last week for certain items $5. Plus I had a 15% off any purchase coupon. I got two full outfits for Hannah, a bathing suit, jean shorts for me, and a shirt for Andrew... the total regular price was over $75 and I paid $23! Old Navy has some great deals! Go check them out!
My new favorite quick meal is a chicken and rice stir fry. At our local Kroger I discovered Steam Fresh Rice and Veggie mix bags. You find it in the freezer section. You steam the rice and veggies right in the bag using your microwave in 4 minutes. Saute this up with some grilled chicken and a egg... then serve! Yum-O! If you try it and like it let me know!
More pictures to come this weekend... Happy 4th of July!
