May our Prayers Help Heal.

I know I haven't done a new post forever.
Hopefully I'll be able to do a better job at posting on a regular basis.

Right now I just wanted to tell everyone about a very special little boy who is fighting for his life.
His name is Briggs Hill he is 2 years old & he has been diagnosed with Medulloblastoma which is a highly malignant cancer.

Here is a picture of him, his mom & his big brother.

He is such a happy sweet little boy & he needs all the prayers & good thoughts that we can send to him & his family.

His parents Sylina & Brenn are good friends of ours.
Little Briggs has already been through so much & he just keeps fighting through it all.
He has been in the PICU at Primary Children's Hospital since Nov 11th.
For more information on Briggs you can check out his care page HERE.

He needs all the prayers that we can send his way for him & his family.

Carrie Underwood.

I know that this post is a bit late but I'm posting it anyways.
The purpose of this blog for me from the beginning has always been a journal.
I started it to keep some memories (I need to do a better job) so I guess better late than never.

So as you know from my previous post I went to the Carrie Underwood concert with my daughter Courtnie, her friend Nicole & my cute Cousin Kelsey.

We had so much fun Carrie is a wonderful entertainer & she is funny as well as a great singer.

We started the night off with some dinner everywhere we went was like an hour wait so we just went to Denny's.
Then it was off to the concert....
Little Big Town opened up for her & they were really good.
Then the excitement mounted.....







Concert tickets $45.00
Gas about $10.00
Dinner $15.00
A night out with my 16 year old daughter Courtnie
PRICELESS!!!
Thanks Court for inviting me out with you.
I Love you more than you will ever know!!!

I'M SO EXCITED!!!

I'M SO EXCITED!!!

A few months ago my daughter told me that she wanted to go to the Carrie Underwood concert.
Her dad gave her money for a ticket for an early christmas present. 
She called up her good friend Nicole and she brought her money to get her a ticket to go also.
And surprise!!!

She even asked her mom if she wanted to go!!!
I know a teenager actually wanting her mom to go, & not as a driver (because she has her license & her own car).

I said no at first, you know the whole money thing.
But after I thought about it for awhile I thought I'd be stupid to miss out on this bonding time with my baby girl.

So I'm going to see Carrie Underwood tonight!!!


But I think I'm more excited to be spending some quality time with my beautiful daughter & that's really what it's all about!!!

What is it about boys???


My boys are only 18 months old & already my little man Kelton thinks it's so funny when he farts!

He will fart and laugh his head off like it's the funniest thing in the world.
And he always has to make sure that you know he did it, he will look at you & laugh.

In a way as gross as it is, it's still cute.
I mean look at that happy little stinker!

Now he has learned to make the noise with his mouth to.
So every time he farts he laughs at himself & then makes the sound with his mouth.

what am I going to do?  
I'm in for it with 2 of them I just know it!

You know God works in mysterious ways.
I have had a few family problems lately, & a few personal set backs.
I haven't felt like myself for awhile now & have been very hard on myself.
I was catching up on my sister Nikki's blog & she had exactly what I needed.
(Thank You Nikki)
I'm not sure where she found this video but it sure made me stop & do some serious thinking.
It reminded me that I cannot be sorry, sad or mad about the things that I don't have or cannot be.
I am ME and I am worth it, I am worth more than even I know & I have to be thankful for Everything & Everyone in my life.
I have found in my life that things happen for a reason & people happen into our lives for a reason.
We may not know at the time why things happen, we may never know, but everything does happen for a reason.
I have been reminded to be Thankful for everything that I do have, and I really do have a lot to be Thankful for.
Maybe this video will help one of you, if nothing else it is so inspiring.

Of course the boys thought they should be out there to.
So here is a little slide show of them playing in the leaves.

A Little bit of Randomness!!!

My Gage has figured out that if he stands on his tip toes he can reach things on the counter in the kitchen.
So after I poured some milk in a bowl for him to have some cereal I turned around to put the milk back in the fridge & heard the milk spilling & Gage crying.
This is what I saw.....




Is it Really Bad that I took the pictures before I put him in the shower?
I know I'm a shoe in for mother of the year!!!



Another bit of Randomness...
The boys have both learned how to unlock the dishwasher & think that they need to play in it & on it.
Well mom isn't going for that idea so they have been getting 1 min in time out every time they do it.
I got this really cute Time Out Spot rug from one of my friends at my baby shower.
The boys will actually stay on it pretty well most of the time, BUT they don't like it!
Here they are on the Time Out Spot.


I know I'm such a mean mom!
Like I said before I'm a shoe in for Mother of the Year!!!

Winter Wonderland????


So this is what we woke up to yesterday morning.
A Winter Wonderland in October!!!
By the time the storm was through we had 11 inches of snow!




The Boys just stared out the window completely amazed.
They were so cute.
I got a bowl full for them to play with, but neither one of them was sure what to do with it.


Gage decided he would touch it first.
He barely touched it turned & gave me a funny look.
Then touched it again.
So then Kelton decided it must be ok so he touched it & laughed.
Gage decided that if it was so much fun to touch, then it was probably fun to eat.
Not so much he spit it out immediately!

Kelton was brave & decided to taste it to.

Ya well I'm guessing it didn't taste so great!

Gage stood & stared at it awhile deciding what he wanted to do with it.

Then the fun & laughing began!
Gage started hitting the snow & flipping it everywhere.
Kelton thought that was so funny he fell over laughing a couple times.

I tried to teach them that if you hold the snow to long it makes your hands cold.
It took them a few times to figure it out.
I wish I could have let them go play in it, but they didn't have any boots to wear, mom wasn't ready for 11 inches of snow to fall the beginning of Oct.
Next time I will be ready, hopefully they like it.
