4 Angels From Above

Instead of worrying about what our children will become tomorrow, remember that they are somebody today.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

Last week I was able to send almost all of my Christmas cards out, and I really hope they get to where they need to go. I was able to get a good photo shoot of my children, and send a picture of them to everyone. The bad thing about being the photographer is... No one to take a family picture. However I much rather be behind the camera. I was thinking it was not fair for all of those who have heard me complain and cheer all year long, and who came back to read some more anyways. So here is my blog holiday card to you. 

We wish you and your family a beautiful Holiday Season filled with love, happiness, lots of yummy food, and a great time with family and friends. 

We hope that sometime you take a moment to remember the precious babe who came to earth to bring salvation to man kind. To ponder about how He has changed and blessed you thus far, and think of ways that He can be a bigger part of your life next year.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given... Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

This and That and I am getting FAT...

We had some VERY cold days around here... LIKE 10 very wet and cold and humid degrees. The kind of cold that penetrates any and all layers that you put on, and pierces your bones taking away all the heat off your body within seconds of stepping outside. Now I know you folks from up North think I am a big baby for saying this but really I don't remember ever being this cold, even if there were 5 feet of snow outside in Montana. There really is something fearful about the cold down here. And you folks from Florida. Stop whinnying about how cold 34 degrees is. Cause I am looking forward to coming down to a warmer atmosphere Saturday. But cold and all the kids LOVED the SNOW. So we had to be the good parents and go out there and fight the battle for a few minutes of happiness from our little ones. 

Stephanie falls face first on the snow.

The snow was too powdery for a Snow man... Maybe next time?!

We also were able to go to a Football game, Titans x Colts, it was my first game I did not understand or like football. But we had so much fun, and now I get the game. However my husband does not expects me to watch it on TV. 

So you may wonder... (or not) What can you do inside the house with 2 kids and a Floridian who is afraid of the cold weather? Well we build Forts, and destroy the living room.

We also play Hide and go Seek, The kids love playing the game with mom and dad. Stephanie usually counts with some one or totally give away some bodies very good hiding spot. This time it was Spencer's turn. I wonder where they are?
And now for the fun part, about me getting fat, I am almost 20 weeks and we get to find out tomorrow what we will be raising. BOY or GIRL? can you guess what the lump is?

I will let you know tomorrow. But for now, I will go sip some hot chocolate. And he wanted to move me to Minnesota, what was he thinking? I would have never gotten out of the house.

Worth His weight in Diamonds.

Let me start by telling you that I am a single mom, for the past week and for the next one. My poor husband is studying his heart out for the finals, and working like a slave. And now he is gone for 3 days, living me, with 2 kids, barefoot and pregnant. In a 20 degree weather with no one to warm my feet at night. BUT I am NOT bitter. On top of the fun... my daughter decided that the past 2 days was a good time to have the runs... MEANING... at least 10 YES I SAID 10 poopy, smelly, diapers to change a day. So today, after Hurricanes Stephanie and Spencer demolished my house. I was looking around the destruction and realized... My husband is not home, so he cant see it. HAHAHA so I am not cleaning it up today, and guess what??!! I am NOT cooking dinner either. THAT"S RIGHT! I am Bad like that. 

So I ran to Wal Mart, and picked up some Mac n Cheese and Fried Chicken, to go along with the barefoot and pregnant. And fed the kids dinner. They loved it. They are too young to judge me as a bad mom, for feeding them JUNK.  I feel like I am Macaulay Culkin, from Home Alone. ITS GREAT.

Anyways, after feeding them dinner and changing the 10th diaper of the day. I was cleaning up a little bit from dinner when I realized SOMETHING STINKS. AGAIN!!! I was bitting into a wooden spoon, and pulling all the hairs out of my head while banging it on the wall. When all of the sudden the house was quiet, and I took a few minutes to find my center. (10 minutes later) I was ready to change yet another smelly one. I came to her room to find the FUNNIEST thing I have ever seen. Spencer holding a STINKY diaper, with an awful look of discuss on his face, and a very happy clean girl. With her diaper backwards. He proudly said. MOMMY I CHANGED HER DIAPER FOR YOU. I busted out laughing, and could not believe my eyes. He threw away the diaper, and came back to ask what was so funny. 
Can you remember the first time you ever changed a diaper? I was at least in the double digits. Daddy told him before he left that HE was now the man in the house, and that meant helping mommy with everything. And he knew that daddy would have changed that one or mommy would have gone KRAAAAZZYY. 
He will make a girl very happy someday, but for now he makes a mommy very proud. LOVE THAT KID.

Keep in mind thats her BUM not the front.

Pretty good for a 4 year old.

Sorry girls, but this one is a keeper, and he is alllll MINE. Until of course... He gets married and blah blah blah.
