I have returned...

Well I'm back for now. haha. Ohhh life has been crazy! I have so much to catch up on. First of all once of the most important things that I need to mention is that there is a new member of the family. We are currently fostering a baby boy named Jeremiah (we call him JJ). He has been with us for about 3 months. We are so excited! What a blessing he is. Hopefully we will get to adopt him...BUT we'll see what the Big Guy has planned right. Anyways, JJ is all smiles!!! Unless he is pooping or hungry...and man does the boy like his food. haha. We all just love him so much and Tucker and Tilly ADORE him...maybe a bit much at times. hehe.

On to the next updates. Tucker and Tilly have started school. Tucker is in Kindegarten and Tilly is in Pre-K. Oh my heck so hard to take my little man to his first day of school. I sucked it up though and put on a big smile for him. I am so happy that both Tucker and Tilly have friends in their classes. I was so worried that they would feel alone.
We had a very fun and exciting summer and hopefully I will post those pics sometime. I did get to go to a rodeo with my mom and sister! I HAD A BLAST! I love my family so much! How lucky I am.

Okay so today has been kind of crazy. No not just today...lately. I can't really pinpoint what it is in life that is making me feel this way right now. Sooo I've just been pondering. I started thinking about my day today. This is how it went...First I woke up every hour with the kids. We like to play musical beds. then I woke up at 5:10 to go running. I was dressed and ready and then the run was canceled due to lightning. ERRRR MOTHER NATURE!!!!!!!! So I went back to bed. Then I got up at 6:30 and went and fed JJ. Then I went back to bed. Alarm went off at 7:30 ( I reset it after run was canceled) got up showered and threw hair up in a messy bun. NO MAKEUP because no time. Got Tilly all ready for school. Took Tuckers temp 2 different times. Fed breakfast to the kids put them all in the car (that is too small) and drove Tilly to school. I then came home and got Tucker ready for the day. Gave JJ a bath fed a bottle. Put on some makeup and got in car to take Tucker to friends house while I got woman doctor. Got to woman doctor place and SAT THERE FOR AN HOUR!!!!!!!! In the waiting room with a baby that has dihareaha and snotty nose. Noticed that I had to pick up Tilly from school. Went and RESCHEDULED appointment that is a month away...again! Went and picked up Tucker and then went and picked up Tilly. Came home fed lunch put JJ down for about 1 hr. He usually needs 3. Then took all of them to DHS building for JJ to visit birth father. Ran to store and then back to pick up JJ. Came home cleaned rooms made beds, cleaned kitchen, got dinner going , swept floors, made popcorn for kids while they watch movie. And now I'm here. WHEW! So now I know why life is crazy. I'm sure most people can handle busy busy. NOT ME! I feel like when that happens sometimes the important things like family time and stuff like that get put on the back burner. Siiiigh. I also thought that if I were getting paid for what I do everyday...I'd be one rich momma.
Now, I know this is a really complain -ee (TOTALLY MADE UP WORD) post but I need to do it. Right now I'm typing with my big fat Skull Candy headphones on (thank you Ron) and listening to Hillary Weeks. TOTALLY need to be alone with my thoughts. Does anyone else every feel that way? Where there is so much going on in your head about what you have to do and what happened that day that you just need to mentally be away? I'm really feeling kind of naughty because the kids want to come in here with me and I keep telling them that mommy needs just a tinsy bit of alone time. :) Anyways, I'm going to try to start updating more often. Enjoy these few pics!

P.S.Jessie I hope this is good enough for a little bit. hehe

He has arrived!!!

A BIG Congratulations to my beautiful twin! Baby Porter was a healthy, BIG baby! He is adorable and I just couldn't get enough of him. Thank you Becca and John for letting me be there to experience that with you guys!
To be able to be there and watch the birth of a beautiful healthy baby was so very special to me. I'm glad that I was able to be there. It was hard...a would be lying if I said it wasn't. But it was also a hurdle that I was able to overcome and to see that I was able to be there and be happy for Becca was good for me. ANYWAYS...My mom and I were able to be in the room with Bec as she delivered Porter and let's just say we were there for comic relief I think....actually it's more like MOM was there for comic relief! "You look like your sister." Yes she said that while Becca was in the middle of delivering the baby! Everyone just stared at her with an expression on their face like they couldn't believe she had said that. WELL then come to find out she was talking to Becca's doctor. She was friends with his sister! Anyways great time. Enjoy the pics!


A HUGE thanks to this pretty lady! Thanks Jessie for making it possible for me to be able to be there for my sister! I asked her last minute and she was totally happy and willing to watch Tuck and Till for me and I just feel sooo blessed to have friends that are so loving and giving! Thank you Jessie!

The Park...

I LOVE SPRING TIME! We decided after church that the kids needed to get some wiggles out so we took them to the park. What a great time....that is after Beau was able to talk Tucker into ENJOYING the park. It just took a bit of coaxing and he was game! Tilly had no troubles enjoying her time there. SHE WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE! Loved it!

BUT eventually we got him into it and he LOVED IT! Little miss Tilly was like a monkey on the jungle gym. Fun but sometimes nerveracking!

So BeHiNd...NEVER Caught Up!

Yep...Can't seem to get caught up...

Also really wanting my photoshop back. Got a new computer and need Photoshop but lost it in the move! D**N...Yep...I meant it too!

ANGELO'S Paint Your Own...

SO MUCH FUN! I wanted to take the kids to paint a plate so then I could hang it in the kitchen. They had a blast. I did too. Loved watching them concentrate on their artwork! My good friend came with and luckily she did because...well yes she was a TON of help! And's just nice to hang with a friend.

Plates before...

Yes I know that it is February and I am just now posting some of Christmas. Better late than never I always say. Anyways we were so blessed to have Ron (Beau's dad) come and spend Christmas with us. It was our first Christmas at our own house. SO nice and relaxing. Although I must say I did miss the chaos that comes with being with the whole family! LOVE YOU ALL!

Next BOTH Tucker and Tilly got to be in little Christmas performances! Tucker sang some wonderful Christmas music for all the parents in his preschool. Tilly was able to preform Suzy Snowflake in her dance recital. Such a blast to watch both of them. I know I should emphasize more on everything but I'm behind on all of this! All I can say is I am so proud of them!

We were so EXCITED to have our dear friends from Iowa come to visit us! It was a short stay but still so fun! I really miss all of the good friends that we left in Iowa. So if anyone wants to visit you are MORE than welcome! Katherine's little boy was just a tinsy babe when I last saw him in Iowa and then when they arrived he was so big...and SOOO SMILEY! Oh my heck I have never seen a baby smile so much. LOVED IT! Tucker and Tilly were so excited to see Henry and Maria. They made it clear to me that Tucker was going to marry Maria and Tilly would marry Henry. AND yes we love James (father/husband) hahahaha. No really we love them all and were so happy to see them and see that they were doing well.
