The Second Eposide

This is not your conventional family by any means.  The one thing that you must know is that we may not all share a blood line, but really who needs that.  The whole Idea of choosing your family sounds so much better.  We may fight we may argue But one thing that wont happen is someone else talking about a family member

Lets get on with the introductions:

Anderson Family Vacation


I know it has been a long time since my last post but the summer is taking up a great majority of my time.

We the Anderson decided to take a road trip, 189 miles south east of here to visit with my bestie and her family.  It was a big deal since Mr. Man was going to be joining us.  This will be the first time since 1998 that he will be returning to my home town!

Some of you might wonder why that is well lets just say that like most family's now day not everyone is happy to call each other family.  SO  I made the decision to not let family know that I would be there and I had an amazing time with no stress and worry about someone saying something that someone would take the wrong way


My plan was to take my 3 monkeys and 2 of my nieces, well that would have been amazing but my niece got grounded and could not come.  Which sadly worked in my favor since I was unable to rent the van to accommodate everyone.

Who knew you needed an instate drivers licence to rent a car with a debit,  I have been back her for 1 yr and have not gotten it switched over.   Yeah GO ME!!!!!!

 So we all pile in my SUV and head out.   we go about 90 Miles and of course it POTTY time which worked out well since it was right at the OUTLET MALL.  We went to a few of the stores but really the prices where about the same.  I did how ever hit it big at the Old Navy store.  

So we get back on the road and arrive at our destination in a matter of a few hours.

We Have booked a room at Pazzaz Hotel & Fun City & Catfish Bend Casino.  My kids were in awe.

There is a water park indoor and out, a game room with laser tag, go karts, bowling alley, CANDY ALLEY.  For the Adults there is a Bar & Casino.

Daily I hear mom can we go back so I am sure there is a return tip coming soon

We get there check in and I throw open the room doors to the pool and show the kids the most amazing thing they say they have ever seen ........

All the Slides and water anyone could ever want



The Kids thought that they were in heaven 3 days of swimming sliding chlorine filled fun.

Anya love the outdoor part and the frog slide

Kasha was not so sure of the water 

  She did love that snack bar tho

She finally got use to the water and went for a wade

Then it was off to the Arcade and Candy Alley

This is my niece Cinda can you tell I caught her off guard lol  but that Ice Cream was really good

In between time of water log we go to some of the sights in town, the kids get filled with storied of my child hood and I swore if I talked a little longer they would have been asleep....

These guns have been in this park for as long as I can remember...  The kids love playing on them



Playing at the river front then home

This was a great vacation much needed time away.....


great time with the Stearns-Gold family

July Happenings

So this is the finale month of freedom \foe me and the kids.

It will me back to school in a month.  We gotta figure out where they are gonna be going, just waiting on aunt Mary to figure it all out.  Our kids go to the same school mainly to help out with the car pooling. 

You know that old saying that it takes a village to raise a child, we fit that mold snugly.   There are 3 kids in my family,  She has 6 kids then 2 sisters that have a baby a piece and 2 cousins and 1 baby there oh and husbands and a brother. 

So when we have a gathering there is surely to be a small mob.

With today being JULY 3rd there is a cook out  planned with fire works.  This should be fun big kids will love playing with all the kids and baby girl will see fireworks for the first time so I am excited and scared to see how she will react.  Pic to follow ....................

On the 22 we are planning a family vacation to a water park and hotel not an experience the the kids have had to this point I know they will have the best time I will have pic of that for sure.  I am like a big kids about this more so for me I am gonna get to spend time with my life long bestie and her family.  She is gonna get to meet MR. MANN for the first time.  PS might I add that we been together 17 years and I have know her for 20 something years.  You could say that we don't make trips home often mostly because I don't like to go back there to much......  Trust my I have a boat load of reason but its not family friendly so I will same that for my adult blog

My Big Little Boy

It's been awhile since my last post.  I have been real busy with work, its a hard job in the collections world. Being a mommy and house wife.  IT'S a hard 3 jobs but someone had to do it.

Yep that's me one of the few times that I get a break to myself ...... AND you guessed it I am in the ladies room

OK enough about me on the the BIG LITTLE BOY....

So as of lately little TDOGG has had some rather tough nights when it comes to going to bed.  Being the only boy in the home he quite often complains about having the smaller room, to which I reply that if he had a baby brother he would have to share a room with said brother.  He then stomps off to his little room and pouts.

He then decided that he wanted to sleep on the old couch in the dinning room, Which was fine for a while. After a few night I told him it was time to return to his room that did not go over well at all.

I awoke to this one morning getting ready to work.....

I am guessing that he attempted to make a run for it before mom or dad woke up and failed at it and just went back to sleep lol.....

Funny little boy

Akasha and her favorite thing to do

I have belonged to a Mommies Message board for quite sometime called JUSTMOMMIES or JM. 

These are some great ladies that offers some support and advice for EVERYTHING from trying to conceive to raising teens.  I belonged to a very special board AUG 2009 PLAYROOM we have all been together since we found out we were gonna have a little one, for some it was their first and for others like me it was a old hat.

One Post inspired this current blog.

I have been brushing Akasha teeth since she got her first tooth.  She loves it and sometimes reminds me that we need to brush.... 

In her cuter than cute voice MOMMY USH MOMMY USH

 So here begins another nightly ritual, but not a bad one guess setting good habits will save me in the dentist office

She loves the feel of the brush and the taste of the tooth paste. Tonight I decided that I would give it ago at letting her brush when we are done.  She gonna need to know sometime RIGHT!  Momma cant brush her teeth for ever

So we finish and she gives me a look at her pearly whites.  With a huge smile while licking her tooth paste mouth

I Decide to let her have a go at BRUSHING her own teeth  how Awesome with this be........

She looks like and old pro....   You would never know that this is her first try alone

Happily continued brushing.... UNTIL

It was time to be done and put the BRUSH up then it was a complete melt down Akasha style,  Hey now we can all see those clean white chompers
