I know I am a little early, but I am leaving town tomorrow and won't be back until Sunday, Nov. 30th. I know that is a long time to be gone, but I spend time with my family in Paden that I really only get to see during the Holidays. Anyway, to all my faithful readers (LOL) I will be out of the loop. However, thanks to my wonderful IPhone I can still read blogs:) I just can't post anything:( Hopefully I will have some good pics to post when I get back! Just a little thanks to Shasta and Christie C. for teaching Mine and Ash's Sunday School class while we are gone. (I don't know if they read this, but I am very thankful for them). If you a traveling drive safely, enjoy time with your family, and try try try not to eat too much! Oh yes and pray for my dad, mom, and my sanity as we travel with a wonderful little man who mostly likes to cry and throw fits in his car seat, but stops crying immediately when you take him out, yes that would be Jarrett, but I love him.

Say, "Cheese"

I took my kiddos to good ole Wal-Mart to get their Christmas Pics made today. Other than the fact that I pretty much did all the work while the lady just pushed the button, things went well. Instead of Bree crying she decided she would try the scrunched up face and eyes smile. I was just happy we had no tears. Jarrett's turned out the best and the ones of them together. I am just a little mad about how much they charge for pics there. It is ridiculous, however I got sucked in!!!

Anyway, when I get the cd I will post them. My Aunt has a really good digital camera so when we are in Paden next week I intend to do my own little photo shoot. I am thinking overalls and saddles!!! Think it will be fun. Wish me luck!

We Survived

Breeana figured out we were going somewhere when she woke up this morning and I was actually fixing my hair. I was hoping to not have to tell her till we pulled up to the docs office, but when she asked me "where us going" I couldn't lie. I told her that she and brother had to go to the doctor. Thinking I was in the clear I continued curling my hair. But no, she then asks "us have get shots?" Again, I couldn't lie, so when I said yes the crying began. She cried off and on for an hour begging me not to take her. When I mentioned a sucker and sticker she perked up a little.

When we got to the doc office she became a brave little girl and got her 3 shots. Yes she cried, but she sat on my lap like a big girl, consoling her nonny threw her tears and owies saying "i's be okay nonny, it's okay." I had to fight back my own tears partially cause my baby was crying and partly because I was realizing what a "big" girl she is becoming.

Now for Jarrett. Well he's pretty happy if mommy and his bottle are near by. He flirted with the nurse and chatted with the doctor. He weighed in at 16 lbs. 11 oz. at 4 1/2 months old. To my relief they have combined several shots into 1 so he only had to endure 2 shots instead of 4. He was a lil' trooper and didn't cry too much.

They are both sleeping now, Jarrett usually doesn't like or want to be held during naps, but today he does so I am taking time away from laundry and cleaning to snuggle him! My baby needs me the chores can wait, he won't be little forever!

What's new with us?


  • Has finally decided to roll over!!! He went from Tummy to back a week ago and Back to Tummy 2 days ago. He doesn't roll very often, but at least I know he can do it!

  • I haven't found a baby food he doesn't like. His favs are sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, pears, and applesauce. These are his favs cause he eats them fast and grunts "mmm, mmm, mmm" the whole time he is eating!

  • He has decided he loves his Jumper-Roo. He jumps really fast!

  • He goes to the doc tomorrow. We will get his weight and height checked and I think he gets 3 or 4 shots. :)


  • She has started sucking her index and middle finger on her right hand. I took her binky on Aug 25th. She just starting sucking her fingers a lot last week. I try and pull them out when I see her, but she does it anyway. How do I take away fingers??? And why has she started the after 2 months with out a binky??? Oh and she has to gets shots tomorrow too!

  • She still gets in Jarrett's bed when he wakes from nap, but she asks me if she can first and she entertains him in there until I finish whatever task I am doing when he wakes. She is a pretty good babysitter!

  • She is learning her ABC's finally and trying to count with her fingers...she sometimes holds up too many or too few and she has a hard time with 3.

  • Her favorite new phrases "I have an idea" but she never tells me what the idea is and "Come here mommy, I have to show you something" usually it is nothing, just a way to get me in her room!!!


  • Well, he has been out of town since Monday. I didn't miss him to much at first, but I found out today he wouldn't be home until Friday late and I am missing him like crazy!

  • Nothing else that I know of going on with him!


  • I have been sorting through toys and clothes deciding what to give to Thanks4giving at our church.

  • Wondering how yesterday I had gained 5 lbs and today it was gone??? How does this happen? Also wishing it was easier and to loose weight!

  • Wondering why I let Scott put my Christmas stuff in the attic a couple months ago, knowing I would want it down right about now. What was the point?

  • Feeling sorry for myself b/c I have to hold down 2 kids tomorrow for shots, what was I thinking scheduling them on the same day!

Sorry no pics, I am too lazy right now to get up and find my camera to download any!

Bree's Singing Debut

Breeana sang with her puggles and the cubbies on Sunday. I was amazed she stayed on stage. Now did she exactly sing like she was supposed to? I will let the following pictures do the talking for me!

She is off to a good start, mind you the music hasn't even started yet!

Inching her way up the stairs.

No she thinks she will go for a little climb!

Checking out the speaker.

So for her first time I think she did pretty good. I was very afraid she wouldn't even go on stage, she is kinda shy sometimes. Nicole (a friend in the choir) said she sand the entire time she was facing them....maybe she just didn't want the to miss out! She sings again on Dec. 7th with our entire Awana group, maybe she will stay in one spot, or maybe we won't let her stand on the end!!!

Halloween 2008 (Breeana)

Okay so I am a scatter brained mother who first of all didn't get any pics of Jarrett dressed up. (Not that he wore the intended costume anyway, he screamed every time I put it on him). I plan to put his camo back on this week and get his picture. Then I forgot to take my camera to the fall festival. And I didn't get any pics of my kiddos together. I will do a better job next year. I did manage a few shots of my Lil' Leopard Ballerina (that is what I call this costume anyway). She was quite the cutie if I say so myself!!! (by the way these are the only pics that were not blurry...not sure what was up with my camera, but I think I will be getting myself a new one soon!)

She loves to ride Uncle Nane's shoulders!

Eight years and counting...

Eight years ago today I married my wonderful husband. We have been through many ups and downs in our relationship, but have always pulled through. I love Scott because he works hard to support our family, is allowing me to fullfil my dream of being a stay home mom, he is funny, optimistic, passive, he's my best friend I can share everything with, stong yet sensetive when need be, he is a great dad to our children, he loves me no matter what, and these are just a few. We are very opposite in many ways but I think we compliment each other pretty well. I love being his wife and hope we have many more years together. I love you BABES!!!!
He sent me this pic this morning to tell me Happy Anniversery!

Wii Fit and Weight Loss

I have managed to work out on my Wii Fit 6 out of 7 days this week! However I have only managed to loose 1 little pound, but I feel better! I am going to have to try harder if I am going to loose 9 more lbs. by November 20th, wish me luck!
