I LOVE my Hubs!!!

...and this time it's not because he buys me things or doesn't make me 'work' or lets me start 'home-businesses' or anything else like that. It's because he let me open my Christmas present early!!!!
Check this out!

I AM SO FREAKIN' EXCITED!!! I got these Rachael Ray pots and pans!! We have been married for 8 1/2 years and these are the first real 'set' of pots AND pans that I've owned!!

He said he let me open them now so that I could get them washed up and use them to make Christams Dinner!! Isn't that sweet? You don't think so? Well I do and I am SUPERFREAKINFANTABULOUS EXCITED!!!!

We do this every year! We are so awful about keeping anything secret from each other. We end up telling/giving each other gifts early. That's why I ALWAYS usually wait till a couple days before Christmas to get his or I'll give it to him a week before!!!

OOOh, I can taste my yummy food now!!!! Onions sauteing in my little skillet! Boiling some potatoes to make creamy mashed taters!! Chicken breasts sizzling in EVOO!!! Yumm-O!!!!!

Hungry yet? Come on over and I'll fix ya whatever yer little heart desires!!

(I keep talking like thes pans are gonna make me cook like Rachael or something!!)

You just never know!!!

Just A Little Coffee!!

Every Saturday morning we let the older girls drink a little coffee with some creamer.
I know, I know.... too much caffeine!!!! My neighbors would 'freak' if they new we did this! They don't let their kids drink anything besides Sprite and Root Beer!

I'm the one who has to entertain these children though, they don't. So bottoms up T!! The house needs to be cleaned!! Let me tell you, they are quite the 'Lil Tasmanian Devils' when it comes to cleaning after drinking a 'cup 'o joe'!! See? There is a method to my madness!!!

A Little Help! Please?

I am making this for my in-laws. They are done having grandkids. (I say this like it's their choice to stop!) haha

When I come up with an idea to do something...I never fully think it out. I just 'start doing' and hope everything comes together.

Well, now I am stuck!! If you all would be so kind to give me some ideas on the wording. I would be forever greatful!!!

A little side note: I usually try not to worry about being perfect when I do things, because I know that I can't be. And I'm less stressed for lack of trying to make it that way. But when it comes to 'outgifting' my sil. THIS BABY HAS TO ROCK!!!!!!

I'm wanting to play on the words of: Favorite things in Grammy and PaPa's Pond.

I haven't glued anything down yet, so there is room to move things around!

Thank you all in advance! I can't wait to get this finished up!!

I just thought you should know!

I was just getting ready to start supper and I realized that today I have a touch of the 'VD'!! (verbal diarrhea!)
What did you think it meant??

It's not the 'drunk' kind. It's just the 'wanting to post a whole bunch of stuff on my blog kind'!
As you may remember, I had mentioned something about a 'Giveaway' when I hit 50 posts?!
I am really excited about that and I don't have to many more to go!
I was going to do it at 100 but I thought that would take too long. Maybe I should have set that for my goal anyway!!
I'm almost wondering if I'm going to have the item ready or not???
Don't worry though, I will!!
This is too exciting!!

I know this is kind of sneaky and probably a little sleazy but I just want everyone to know:
If you are a 'follower' of mine, you'll get a 'heads up' to my giveaway!!!
Just sayin'!
And depending on how well that goes....there may be more!!!

Well, off to feed the 'hoodlums' and bake some cookies!!

Excitement for a 2 year old

Saturday afternoon we were putting up a couple of decorations in our front yard. S got another

little tree out of our shed that had belonged to his grandmother. (That I forgot to put up)

He told D that she could have it. She didn't seem to excited at first because it did not light up....or so she thought!!

S put it in her room and plugged it in while she was busy doing whatever it is that 2yearolds do...

Later she wondered into her room and came out screaming!!!!!

Daddy fixed my tree!! Daddy fixed my tree!!! And then she proceeded to hug his legs, tell him 'thanks' and 'I wuv you daddy!'

I know...melts your heart, right? Mine too, I'm just a little jealous though. S ALWAYS gets to swoop in and make everybody happy!!

Another piece of excitement from D came this morning when she got a hold of my camera! She came in screaming all excited AT me and honestly, I had no clue what she was saying. She held out the camera to me and I pushed review. She had taken a picture of her chair!!

MY CHWAIR, MY CHWAIR!!!! ( I know, I know.. you are probably thinking she needs speach....I think we will be okay though. If she is still talking like this at Christmas next year, I'll get the phone book out!)

Yes, it is quite blurry but I guess that's what you get when you take a picture with the camera turned to 'mountain'.

Good try though! Sometimes I think it's way better than anything mommy coulda done!!

This could happen to you!

Be sure and check your child's homework!!
This didn't happen to me, but you never know who may fall victim!!

(This mother works at Home Depot – she is selling a shovel.)
The teacher thought she was a pole dancer!

My Grandpa

I decided to participate in the Wordful Wednesday today that
is having. Click her blog button to check it out!

My Grandma Jerry got sick three years ago before Thanksgiving. I was pregnant with D at the time and we were all naive and thought it was her Gall Bladder and would be a quick fix! Boy was I ever wrong. Grandma was later diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. She got so sick and kept a smile on her face despite. She passed away in January before D was born in March. I like to think that they met in Heaven when Grandma got their and before D was born. D acquired alot of the little quirks that Grandma had!
This of course is a picture of H and I like to think that she also hung out with Grandma before she was born. H even more than D shows ALOT of my Grandmas characteristics. The main one being that she is ALWAYS so smiley!! Even if she is crying, she will stop, sob, smile and then continue to cry!!
This picture of my Grandpa Jim holding H really doesn't need any words. You can see the love he has for her already. You can also see how he wishes his wife, my grandmother was there to see her and love her!

Just another day.

What is it with me?
One week my house stays clean......
my laundry is clean and put away......
we have good, homemade meals for supper....
my kids aren't fighting......
my kids are listening to me and polite and loving!!

And then there is this week....
I don't want to do anything but sit on my behind!!!
Which makes me feel super guilty when I do..
because when S asks what I've done ALL day..
My mind is racing to give him something productive I've done..

If anyone knows how to 'fix' me let me know!! I may take into consideration.

Well, off to watch Falalala Lifetime while the little ones sleep and before I have to get the older girls.

I'm sure this afternoon will be hell since I'm doing nothing. I only punish myself!!

Oh, and as a side note. If anyone is interested in being a Follower of me, by all means go ahead and add me! As soon as I hit 50 posts I plan on having a Giveaway!! You don't want to miss out on that!!

Only 3 months left!

Today my youngest and last little girl is 9 months old. Where has the time gone?? I remember a year ago when I felt miserable and I was wanting the next 3 months to go quickly so I could meet her.

Her birth was quick.

It seems that the past 9 months have gone quicker!

I just had to throw this one in because I laugh everytime I see this!!

D: I don't want to hold this!! She's going to ruin my life by taking away ALL of my attention!!! I'm not the baby anymore!!!!

No worries though! They are the best of buds for now!!!

The whole reason for this post is because my dear husby keeps telling me that I'm going to nurse this poor child till she's 3!! I don't plan on it. I will probably take the boob away when she turns 35 months. That seems fair enough. Doesn't it??

A Tad chilly this morning!!

For my friends who don't live in the immediate area please disregard.
I'm sure you will become quite upset with me over this post!

This morning when I woke up I checked the temp. to see what I should dress my children in for school. It was 33*.

I know that technically this is not cold. But here it is cold. It really hasn't been to bad here yet. I'm sure it will get colder and I'm going to enjoy it while it's above freezing. I dread paying my heating bill.

I've lived in Missouri and New Mexico so I know what cold is. I just want others to understand that. I don't want anyone thinking that I am complaining about this 'just above freezing' tempurature. I'm not. But I have felt cold. Not 'Northern states' cold, but enough to realize that I don't like it!!!

Now, I do miss snow. I miss snow dearly. And I'm coming to the realization that I may not see snow here or any that's worth playing in. I've seen the pictures of the snow on the Sandia Mountain already this year and I have to admit that I am missing New Mexico. I never thought I would say that but I do. (I miss my people there dearly, I just never thought I would miss the state!!)

And I know that Missouri got some snow Sunday and Monday.

But this is what I found this morning!!

You gotta take what you can get!!!

Oh Yeah!!

So, this is why I was putting this off!

H has stopped fussing. She's hitting a barn with a sheep. So she is happy as a clam!!

I just had to share this picture of my dad holding H.

She wasn't being very cooperative when we were visiting family the other week. You know,

the whole seperation anxiety/being a 'titty' baby thing? That was her. It broke my dad's heart.

He just wanted to hold her and spend time with her. And ALL she wanted to do was cry and look

around the room for her momma!!

Of course, the last night we were visiting. My dad takes H and goes into the living room. Crying and all. I help mom clean up the kitchen, give the other girls their baths, take the dog out and realize...I haven't heard H crying?? Did she fall asleep???

You bet your bottom she DID!!!! AND SO DID GRANDPA!!!

What Happened???

I get so irritated with myself sometimes. Okay, more than sometimes, but right now I'm a little irrate. *sigh*
So, I leave for a week and come back home and try to get my house, laundry, kids, etc. etc. back in order and I make absolutely NO time for blogging!!!!
How dare I, you ask. Now, I have been reading blogs, because that is what keeps me going. I've been leaving comments here and there because I want to show my appreciation for being able to read those blogs. I just haven't posted anything myself!!!!
There have been many a 'bloggy' moment that I have thought.....'oooh that would be good', or' I should post that.'
But I never seem to make it to the computer too type.
So.....I have jumped back onto the 'blog-wagon'..
while my baby is screaming in her high chair (not a hurt/mad/red in the face cry) just a little
'I'm pissy, come and pick me up squeal',
God only knows where the two older girls are and WHAT they are doing
and Dakoda is running around with her paci in her mouth!! (Big NO-NO!! That is only for bed!!)
So you can see how I have become a little distracted by life!
Now I know that I can stop what I am doing for a little and share with you what goes on behind our closed doors, blinds and windows. (No curtains yet so I thought that really didn't apply)
Okay, too much screaming now....better go!!!
