Mobile blogger

I decided to install Blogger for my Android phone.  I just wanted to mess around on it (mostly because I'm bored at work!).

Tuesday, February 8, 2011


It's been 455 days since my last post. A lot has happened in 455 days. Obviously, all three kids have aged another year & I have hit the "30" milestone. I've become a single mom, I went back to work, & moved home to be near my family. A lot accomplished in 455 days!!

The last 422 days have been an incredible learning experience (the 33 days leading up to those were not eventful). 422 days ago I decided that my three amazing children deserve a happy momma. In order to be a happy momma, I needed to go at it alone (hence, the "single mom" reference above). So here I am, I'm no longer a Stay At Home Mom, 292 days ago I went back to work & 213 days ago we moved into our new home.

Adjustments have been made, many things have changed, but honestly, life could not be better than it is at this moment. I cannot promise that you will see another post from me within the next 455 never know, I could surprise you, either way, I wanted to post something so that my millions of followers could see that we are all doing well. You could follow me on Twitter, but I can almost guarantee that no updates will be seen there.

You Capture

So I'm thinking of starting something that I'm not quite sure I'll finish. Why start you ask? Well, I need something to make myself accountable to blog more often. So, here goes. I'm going to start "You Capture". You Capture is a brain child of I Should Be Folding Laundry (yes, the title of her blog is the story of my life - scratch that, if it were my life it would be "I Should Be Putting Away the Laundry"). Anyway, this site gives challenges every Thursday of things to "shoot", now I know I've just started with a camera other than a point & shoot camera, I may not give you the best photos to look at as far as technique, but I can guarantee that if my kiddos are in it, I'll give you the cutest subjects to look at!!
So this weeks theme is completely open "Whatever you want". Well, that's an easy week to get the nerve to start!!! Last weeks theme was "Autumn", so I will go ahead & go with last weeks theme. I will show you what autumn looks like to me.

My Baby Boys are One!!!!

While I've been busy slacking off at blogging, my baby boys turned one year old!! This year has just flown by! I should have posted this on their birthday, but like I said, I was busy slacking off & wanted to wait until they had their one year appointment with their pediatrician so I could share some stats. Both boys are walking & talking. Aaron has just started putting his toy phone to his ear & saying "Hi", he & Brayden both love to say "Ut Oh".

Baby A - Brayden
October 25th 2008 - 5lbs 5oz 18inches
October 25th 2009 - 20lbs 15oz 30.5 inches
Baby B -Aaron
October 25th 2008 - 5lbs 10oz 18inches
October 25th 2009 - 21lbs 2oz 31 inches

While in line to check out at the pediatrician (they were VERY busy), in front of me stood a mother of 2 week old boy/girl twins. I could see the love in her eyes, she hasn't quite hit the exhausted stage just yet, she'll be there soon. Then stood myself with my one year old twins crawling all over myself & their Mimi (my mom who came to help...thanks Mom!!), behind me stood a mom of four year old twin boys. It was very neat to see, but at that moment, I saw where I was almost exactly a year ago, where I am now, & where I will be in 3 years. It was a sad, proud, & excited/scared moment all at the same time. Oh, by the way, the four year old twin boys were seeing the doctor because they'd been fighting with each other, one had a blood shirt, the other a fat lip. I left thinking, my boys will never do that...haha!!
Anyway, on to the fun part.......the birthday party pictures!! We really didn't have a theme for their party, it was pretty laid back, small with just immediate family. The boys had sports theme cakes, they loved tearing into them!!

Playing with Thomas the Train

Aaron's smash cake is the football & Brayden's is the baseball
Brayden loved his cake

I want to taste yours!

Aaron demolished his cake
Thank you boys for the most challenging, crazy, sleep deprived, happiest year of my life. I wasn't sure I could get through this year, but with the help of our family & Payton (Mommy's helper), we did it. We love you boys & we can't wait for many more birthday's to come!!!

Trick-or-Treat!!! What is that you say? It's too early to go Trick-or-Treating?! It's only September, you can't Trick-or-Treat in September!! Oh yes you can!! A campground in our area celebrates Halloween in September, it's a ton of fun for the kids & a little warmer than Halloween in October is some years. Campers decorate their RV's & campsites while the little ones dress up & try to collect as much candy as they can. Last night our family set up camp & the little ones of our extended family dressed in their spookiest & cutest costumes. After Trick-or-Treating, we visited a haunted island. Payton was very nervous about the haunted island, her & I tried to find the "spooky people" that were hiding before they found us. It was a lot of fun & lots of giggles as we stuck our tongues out at them & there were a few "na na na boo boo's" coming from Payton as well. It was a ton of fun. Unfortunately, Jared & the boys had a cold, so we thought it was best for them to stay home. They missed out on a lot of fun!

Our neighbor made a Snow White costume for her daughter when she was in first grade. Her daughter is now my age. She offered the costume for Payton to wear for Halloween. Of course, my little princess was so excited to be Snow White (She's been a princess for Halloween 3 out of her 5 years). The wig was her favorite part.

Scary Snow White!!
