You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

Easter was fun we headed over to G.G's for brunch and an egg hunt. Then home for a nap yeah for naps! Then had my mom and mike over for a bit and ate dinner. It was different not being able to spend more time with my mom on Easter but she was just so tired. She had her 1st chemo treatment on Wednesday. She is fairing pretty good but is just so dang tired but I really enjoyed the time with her.

So Ty was putting on some deodorant yesterday and the boys came down and asked if they could put some on too so they put some on. Later in the truck they turn to miss m and say we put some pit stink on today. Oh can I tell you these two little boys are the funnest ever and I thank the lord every day for letting us have them in our life.

A young girl has no interest in learning to rope until there is a cute boy involved and a young boy does not care to ride horses until there is a cute girl involved. Oh how it makes me laugh it's so cute.

Sunday Fun!

Last Sunday we headed over to my mom's house to just hang out with her, Mike, and my sister. The kiddos also rode the horses here are a few pictures from the day. Oh how I love family time!

Thankful Thursday!

Today I will not be doing awkward & awesome but will be doing Thankful Thursday. This past week has been one of the hardest weeks in my life and I'm so grateful that I have such great family and friends. I just don't know if I could have made it through it without them.

  • I'm so very thankful that we have a lord that loves all of us so dearly and is always with us.

  • That I have the strongest mother ever physically, mentally, and her faith.

  • For wonderful family and friends that are always there.

  • Doctors and all of medical advancements.

  • Mammogram machines-oh yes not fun to do but thankful for them.

  • The wonderful work family I have.

  • Each and every beautiful day I get to live and enjoy the company of everyone.
Sometimes it takes hard times to open your eyes on really how lucky we are!

Well the kids spend the night at grandma and grandpas house so Bo was my snuggle buddy this morning. Although he is not as cute as my last snuggle buddies.

April 7, 2011

So today my dad brought the kids out to the house for me and have dinner with us. The kids and my dad came in the house singing "Everyone is doing it, doing it, doing it. Picking their nose and chewing it, chewing it, chewing it.....and making it bleed." Oh the great thing my day teaches my kiddos!

awkward & awesome

Oh yes it's that time again


-cleaning puke up after two very sick boys....yuck one of the joys of being a mommy

-a dog that can clear the room in two seconds flat so very gross.

-having my car try to die several times on the way home and barely making it home I am so not driving it again until it gets fixed.

-how many times can I start the dryer to unwrinkle my work clothes in a week well I'm on day four one more day to go. Oh how I hate to fold and hang up clothes


-an entire day of snuggling with the boys and watching cartoons oh yes an entire day.

-finally getting my shower caulked and getting the banister in our house painted I love when I get things done like that.

-great family and friends that take such good care of me.

Short and sweet this week it been a little crazy in life.
