Oh what a saweet fun time we had going to the Mindy Gledhill concert! Can I just say that our stomachs hurt so bad, but man are we going to have some rockin abs!!! We laughed, mostly at Amanda( I luv ya sista) she was drugged half the night trying to fight off a major tooth ache that was taking over her entire left side of her face, it was so sad to see her hurting so bad and there was nothing I could do for her, except TAP, and keep her hydrated and sing to her and give her big hugs!!!! FABULOUS

Well I am slowly but surly coming back into my life as a confident , strong wiled, Peaceful, harmonizing, pain free, fun loving, non judging,kissy facing, non fake smile wearing, momma, lova, friend*ME
Its has been a long time coming but I love that I am working on it and I feel myself coming out of the clouds, so to speak, Best way to describe it is like when Mary Poppins comes floating out of the clouds down to Cherry Lane under her umbrella and she is looking around and I think feeling very confident about what she can do to help that little family she is being sent to! I love this!!! cause this is how I am starting to feel more and more as the minutes pass!
It is coming slowly but surely and something that has to be worked on and part of my every minute thinking but it is happening and I love it!!!!!

Monday, September 13, 2010


Okay so here it is, I have this fetish (no joke) with pumpkins, most without the faces, my taste is more plain jane thank you very much!!! They bring me joy to look at, they calm me, kind of like a long hot bath with Tylenol PM running through you, they always put a smile on my face and make me giddy, no really!!!! SO I have found a way to feed my fetish all the while still being able to feed my kiddos, Priorities here, Priorities!!!
So when my sweet friend Amanda over at Dejavu crafts and I got together we tore my house apart looking for pumpkins that we could make by just copying some of the ones I already had and just adding our own little twist to them.
So off the the Cemetery (really) we went in search of old wood that my dad had lying around (no pun in tented hahaha) we found pallets and pallets that he said he would be more than willing to GIVE us, yes friends you read that right, these pumpkins didn't cost us a dime (seriously) and yes my dad owns the cemetery and it is the coolest thing in the world (no really it is) Geesh Gene you are awesome!!!!!
and low and behold we came up with these, here is the first one that I did and the bigger one and other little one are coming soon, I promise, I do have to keep a clean house while I craft to keep a happy hubby ;)
So more are coming, and pics of the other things I've been working on!!!! HAPPY FALL!!!


Here is the bigger ones that Amanda and I made!!! I love these!

6months, 16 pounds and a double ear infection....

How does it happen, and so stinkin fast..... Brynlee is already hitting all kinds of mile stones. She is 6 months old now, 16 pounds ( little fatty mcfatty) had her first double ear infection (she'd rather not have those, thank you very much) she is rolling from front to back and back to front now, which means she is a lot more mobile than she was before I left for San Diego, holy crap!!!! Before I freakin know it, we'll be shopping for dorm room furniture!!!! REALLY!!!!

A Happy Birthday shout out to my LOVAH........ ;) wink

I want to tell my awesome husband (who turned 35 today) I mean 29, Happy Happy Birthday!!!! Brian is THE MOST wonderful person and I am so glad and feel sooooo blessed that I get to smooch on him on a daily basis!!!! He keeps me laughing and smiling (most of the time) ;>
He makes me so happy and I love waking up in the morning thinking about ways to love on him during the day, I still get so excited when I see that it is him who is calling my phone, I get butterflies when 10:30 rolls around and I know that I get to lay next to him and fall asleep, then we both turn over and get comfy!!!!!! I love that after almost 13 years of marriage I am sooooo much more in love with him now then we were 13 years ago, and that I can be anywhere in town and if he sees my car he comes in to where I am and sneeks up on me and grabs my butt ( one of these days He is going to get smacked) I love how he still likes to grab me from behind and kiss my neck then whisper sweetness ;> in my ear, just like he did the day we got married, If Perry really new what he whispered he would have blushed. We have a pretty special bond and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. Our days aren't always bliss but I know that on most days we will be laughing and (kissing and doing things that would frighten the fish,)( name that movie) I love you Suga Daddy!!!!!!!!!

So here is my new fall door decoration and my sweet sweet friends and I got together at my friend Amanda's house (yep we really know her AND hang out with her;) We loved every minute of this craft!!!! Even the 7 kids running around the whole time!!!! This was made by using a Styrofoam wreath from the dollar store and corn husks that you use to make tamales our of!!!!!so easy and so fun!!! and this is the final product!!! I want like 19 of these in my house!!! I can't wait to post pics of all the other fun stuff we have up our sleeves. Craftay, Craftay!!!!!!

What I've Been doing lately.....folding pages ;)

So this dear friend of mine that I (heart) so much made these adorable (logs, or Pumpkins) whatever your fancy!!!! all you do is get an old book from your local thrifty, mine was 30cents for the paperback and 75cents for hardback book and you rip the cover off!!!

Then you start folding all the pages inward to the seam of the book
Keep going till you have the whole book done, you need a book that has at least 500 pages so it looks full, I am doing one right now that has 2000 pages and oh my gosh it is adorable!!! Pics to come!

Finished project!!!! Put a stick in the top or glued on and make it a pumpkin!!! I will show you that one too!!! More pics to come, on the run but will show them later!!!!

Happy Birthday Mom.....We love you!

We had a little birfday party for mom the weekend of her birthday!!!!
I cooked the dinner and we just pretty much vegged. The kids loved seeing Grammy Leighton who was there for the week getting the caterac removed from one of her eyes!!! It was fun spending time with her as we don't see her very often, and she only lives 45 min away in Willcox, go figure ;>
Brynlee was helping MIMI blow out her candle, I couldn't remember how old Mimi was so we put a ? mark for the candle, very fitting!!!!
Then Bryn slept forever and when she woke she had peed all up her little dress, so she became she favorite person, NAKED BABY!!!! I love it
Couldn't you just eat that up!!!!! We need a bra for those bad boys!!!!!
She was talkin and talkin....she had just so much to say!!!
Then papa took over and fed this starving child.... I love this picture of her holding on to papa's hand
Of course Kipp had to give her kisses.... He is so good with her
Grammy chillin
Kipp and Grammy became quite the Buds the week she was here!!!

"God didn't promise days without pain,
laughter without sorrow,
sun without rain,
but He did promise strength for the day,
comfort for the tears,
and light for the way."
