Our weekend


I love weekends like this weekend minus the snow.


We went to dinner, grocery shopped, came home and watched shows until everyone fell asleep. We were all tired. Fridays are always crazy, I get off early and we run, run, run. Bob's birthday is next Friday and I had been trying to find him something and then he called and told me he wanted cologne for his birthday. WOW!! I was going after buying him some new shoes, but cologne it is.


We got the boys haircuts, they so desperately needed them. They got fohawks and I have to say I am pretty impressed with them. I love $6.99 haircuts at Great Clips. Then we did some shopping to pick up some stuff. Then Lex attended her first girl Birthday party. Since she has brothers, she really NEVER is around girls her age. Right after we got home the boys were outside and Bob came to get me, the sunset was BEAUTIFUL. She had a blast! Later we watched the fights and I tried to stay awake.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain...

Its here, it came!!! I am so happy with it, I love it and I sat down and read the whole thing in two days, its 340 pages and full of our crazy life in 2009, oh what a crazy life we had. Looking bad, I wondered how we did, life was so unorganized, crazy, sad and hard, but I feel blessed today. We have come so far, so far!! We may not have it all, but we have each other and I love that. I love that everyone is healthy today (don't want to say that too fast!). I titled my book "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain" because its true. You can either sit around and wait for the storm to pass or make the best of it. I think we did pretty good. I was an emotional wreck though, I wasn't myself, I had just had a baby and then told my Husband would die, but guess what he didn't. Thanks friends for sticking by me! And thanks Bob for the most AWESOME gift ever, besides my kids. I will ordering 2010 next week.

I hate SNOW

I swear the Groundhog said that Spring was right around the corner, but from the looks of outside, Mother Nature had other plans. And as I speak its SNOWING AGAIN!!!

Jax went out to help Dad shovel and then attempted to make a snowman only for it to collaspe and him end up in the snow. He makes me laugh!

I really do have an amazing Husband and sometimes, I am stubborn, ornery and a BRATT!!! Yes, I said it, but don't tell him that.

I thought this was too cute not to post and plus I want to make sure I have it forever. On Monday I was bummed, I told Bob NOT to get me flowers, I don't like them, they don't last and I wanted something different. So in December I told him I REALLY wanted my blog turned into a book. He said that was fine and to just let him know. Well I spent weeks editing it, making sure it was perfect and everything. I finally ordered it on Saturday. But I won't get it for like 2 weeks. I was bummed come Monday that I had nothing to show that I had gotten something for Valentine's. I went to bed early and I was upset, because I am a baby! Actually, I haven't felt good for 2 weeks now. My head could explode at any moment. Well I woke up and there was a note on my night stand and it said the above in the picture. I cried, because he is right, I know he cares about me and I know that we are perfect for each other and I know I should've NEVER said anything about not having my gift. But I made him feel bad. I love how he says "persistance". But its true, when Bob told me for like 3 months that he had this weird pain in his chest and was getting tunnel vision, I begged and pleaded and begged and pleaded with him to go to the doctor, I didn't give up on asking him to go. Come to find out...he was dying and didn't even know it. I saved his life and I am willing and proud to admit it. If I hadn't begged him to go, he never would've went. So my persistance is a good thing, I believe. So even though I am stubborn, ornery and moody at times, I still have great persistance. And I love my Husband more than words can express. I can't imagine my life without him and even though he make me mad, he still makes me smile and laugh!

Jaxon's New room

Sorry, it doesn't look very cute right now. Only because I am the process of finding stuff for his room and I have a friend that is going to do Vinyl for me. So once I find a bed spread I like, paint that I am good with and all the fun stuff, I will have more pictures.

Jax has tons of space now though and I like it because all their clothes fit in their closets. Yes, my kids have enough clothes, well except Lex, she needs a new wardrobe for Spring/Summer. So more pictures to come.

Computer problems / Blog problems

I feel like I have been out of the blog world for a while, but really its only been a couple of days. We had a few computer problems (thank goodness for a computer guy as a Husband) and then my blog got all messed up and was FUN to fix...NOT!!! And I am still working on that.


I am working on the post of our newly seperated boys and our new computer room. Hopefully I will get to them this week.

Happy Valentine's Day

Bob and I have been married for 7 and a half years and have been together for 8 years. We dated for 3 months and then got engaged and married 6 months later. Marrying Bob was the best decision I ever made. Bob and I are 10 years apart, but we fit perfectly. He makes me laugh and smile. There is no one I would want by side more than him. He takes good care of me and loves me for who I am. Happy Valentine's Day!!

First park trip of the year

I wish that the weather wasn't going to turn crappy again, but the truth is, this is just a tease! We took advantage of it and went to the park. Lexi loves the park and we had to fight her to leave. The boys, they could stay at the park all day.

Little bit of this and a little bit of that...

This past week I was sick....blah! I hate being sick. I was down for two days and Lex was down for one day, everyone else (KNOCK ON WOOD) has been good.

So I finally have energy back and we decided to move Jax downstairs. I have been a bit hesitate on this, but the truth is, I can't handle the chaos at bed time or anytime, there room was a COMPLETE NIGHTMARE. So we have been moving all day and I found things a long the way of clearing out the computer room and making it Jaxon's room.

Okay, so I found this in my purse, we took this at Boondocks last night. This was pretty much the only thing Lex got to do and Bob and I were being silly!!!

This is the note from Jax's teacher last week. He wrote her a note and she wrote him one back. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE his teacher, she is amazing!!!

Lexi....she is sometimes a princess...I say SOMETIMES, because boy does the girl like trucks, cars, motorcycles and all that crazy BOY stuff. It makes me sad, but truly she is a girl at heart. What can I say, she does have TWO brothers!!!

Bobs Valentine's gift, a brand new keurig coffee machine. It serves single cups, which is perfect, he is the only one who drinks coffee. And my Valentine's gift, well it will be here in about 2 weeks, I am excited and I CANNOT wait!!!

This was found while moving, it was one of my favorite wedding gifts, my Aunt hand sewed it for us and well the frame broke, so I put it in a new frame and hung it in my hallway.

And this my friends is my favorite picture, the day my Dad became a Grandpa. He was so happy, you see he had all girls, 3 of them as a matter of fact. So to finally have a boy was pure bliss. I need to paint this frame to match Jaxon's new room and it will be good to go.

Oh the joys of cleaning a room that you haven't touched since you moved it, but everything will look amazing when were done.
