Sugar Family Update... What We've Been Up To :)

I feel a bit like I have been neglecting The Sugar Kids Blog since I have been spending quite a bit of time getting my other blog up and running.  Have you seen it yet? Head over to Sugar Free For Me and check it out.  :)

There has been quite a bit going on, though, and I am excited about some stuff coming up!

On Thurs, Feb 10th I took the day off of work to attend a field trip with the Sugar Kids and Sugar Daddy.  :)  It was at a farm that we had actually visited before... but the kids are a year older now and we had SO much fun hanging and learning with their classmates.  It was a good day for me... I realized that maybe I need to take more days like that to just be a MOM.  Get out of the office and remember that I have two fabulous kids that I love spending time with... and who love spending time with me.  Here are some pictures from that day.

On Valentines Day I had to work, but we had a wonderful evening at home.  I made a YUMMY dinner, and got small gifts for all my valentines.  The Sugar kids were so excited when they opened their little bags to find pencils, small toys and of course - CHOCOLATE!  I love the little boxes that Whitman's and Russel Stovers makes.  They have like 3 or 4 pieces of chocolate and nutritional info is on the back!  What more can you ask for in a T1D household???  :)  The Sugar kids enjoyed their chocolate completely.. and I enjoyed watching them get such a special treat.

This past Saturday Sugar Daddy and I celebrated a belated Valentines Day.  The Sugar kids went to stay at Grandma and Grandpa's house and we went out to a nice dinner followed by a full night of uninterrupted sleep.  Heaven?  You better believe it!  :)

Yesterday was Presidents Day so both the kids and Sugar Daddy and I had it off!  Yay!!!!  We were busy.  We started out at the mall... along with about a million of our closest friends.  Apparently that's where EVERYONE ends up when there is a day off of work & school.  We had lunch and then got going.  The kids had made Build A Bear friends in their classroom for their Valentines Day Party at school.  So, we went to Build A Bear and got outfits for each of the friends.  Really cute!  After that we went to the play area, until they kicked us out to have it cleaned.  Next was Stride Rite for new shoes... and then Paradise Bakery for a cookie and milk snack.  They seriously have the best cookies ever.  Sinful, really.  Then back to the play area... at least the kids got to play off the cookies.  Sugar Daddy and I did a good job of sitting around and watching them.

Coming up:  Have I mentioned that Sugar Boy is a TOTAL Thomas the Tank Engine fan?  I am sure I have.  Well, it turns out that Day Out With Thomas is coming to Arizona!  Its the first time that the tour has come to our state.  We are surprising the Sugar Kids (Sugar Boy, really - Sweet Girl will enjoy herself but lets face it, she is not the Thomas freak that her brother is) with the trip in early March! 

So, that's it!  That's what we have been doing... and what we are going to be doing.  :)


  1. Love the other blog, Donna. Good for you for getting out there and attacking the problem . . . I have faith you will be as successful in weightloss as your are as a pancreas!!!!! <3

  2. Omigosh, I LOVE the cookies from Paradise Bakery. I rarely go there, but I never can resist a cookie from that place! Glad you are taking some time for yourself, as well as focusing on having fun with your kids. Cute pictures, btw! :)

  3. I am so happy that you were able to spend the day with your kids on their field trip. Great picture! Great memories being made!
