What Happens...

What happens when you mix a Daddy & a Grandpa (Pa-Pa Brown), some wood, some brakets, and a truck load of sand? Why you get our new 8X8 sandpit in the backyard!! WHOO HOO! The kids have had a GREAT weekend playing in the new sandbox! Soon our backyard will be a great place for all to hang out!

These pics are from their very 1st playtime in the sandbox. As this was literally Austin's VERY 1st sandbox experience, he was walking around saying "OH DIRTY!!" and would NOT sit for anything! Not a problem anymore! He now LOVES the sandbox and making *aka DISTROYING sandcastles!

Maddie's New Haircut

So I'm a week late...he he...times are busy for the Hoffman's! But introducing, with a fabulously cute short hair cut...Miss Madison!!

Yes she has a Christmas tree sticker on her nose, who doesn't play with Christmas stickers in MAY!

Madison is very thrilled with her new swing haircut! She is blessed with that thick gorgeous hair that makes grown women jealous! So this haircut turned out SUPER cute and SO EASY to deal with every day!

Here it is...What You've All Been Waiting For...

What a wonderful Mother's Day gift I did receive, but a little birdie dancing for ME!!

Madison's dance recital just happened to fall on Mother's Day this year (wouldn't have been MY 1st choice, but hey!) This is her ballet, I didn't record the tap, but I hope you enjoy! Nothing like a group of precious girls dancing away!

I'll post pics to follow

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Let's see, where to begin...
I absolutely did not start a new (bribery) reward system with Madison using Quarters for good behavior and helping out around the house, after having this conversation with another Mom at soccer practice! (I thought it was such a brillant idea I jumped right on that bandwagon!)
I did not pull the sheets off my big king size bed and allow my small children to jump & wrestle wildly in the new clean sheets, while me & my friend Robyn flew the sheets up & down!
I did not drag Madison all around Old Navy shopping for Mommy, and all the while telling her if she was very good we could go to her section! She did not then talk me into a dress & an outfit for her, along with matching flip flops (and OH Mommy Austin needs some flip flops too!!)
I did not patiently wait for my hubby to leave yesterday morning to go pick up the kids (sleepover w/grandma), so that I could go to the grocery store A-L-O-N-E!!!
I did not wait until the absolute last minute to wake Austin up this morning, dress him half asleep, and take off to school.
Ok that's all the Not Me's I have for now...although my list could grow throughout the day! LOL!! ENJOY!!
