I just LOVE being a mom!! To me there is absolutely nothing in this world better!! If someone came to me and offered Money, Riches big house whatever, in exchange for my kids I would walk away without a thought!! To me there is nothing better than having one of your kids come to you and put their arms around you and kiss and hug you and tell you how much they love you, or to watch them figure something out that they couldn't do before, and watch that pure joy of accomplishment!! Amazing!! To watch your babies face light up just because you are smiling at them!! It just speaks to my heart and I have pure contentment in who I am and what I am doing as a mother, I Love them with all my heart. I thank god for them everyday more than once, I thank him for all these blessing each and everyone, Ive got seven of them. They are amazing, and I feel truly blessed and mostly amazed that these beautiful spirits are in my home and I get to call them my children!! But mostly I just love being a mom!! Thank you!!

Happy Birthday..................

Sweet girl!! I am going to dedicate this post to the most amazing 7 year old little girl in the whole world!!

The 7 things I love about you!!

  1. My sweet Monica will do her jobs without being asked she just goes and does them!!

  2. Then when she is done doing her jobs that's not enough she has to go help her sister so that she can get done fast too!! (so they can play of course)

  3. If you look sad or upset or mad she will come up to you and put her arms around you and tell you she loves you!!

  4. She loves Colton almost as much as I do, she constantly saying he is just so cute, he is so cute!! She trails after him like a little mother hen!! Now that is cute!!

5. Her love of life, she just gets so excited about things, and her whole little face lights up and you cant help but feel her joy!

6. she loves her baby sister, she mothers Makenna almost as much as she mothers Colton, always saying how adorable she is!! I love that she loves her brothers and sisters with so much intensity!!

7. That she is mine for now and I'm so blessed to have this sweet angel in my home, she is such a great blessing to us!!

We will be forever blessed to have this darling girl as our own, and am so thankful for seven years ago at 7:47 a.m. to welcome her into our family, love you forever baby girl!! Kisses mommy

crazy hair day

Along with red ribbon week, today we had crazy hair day. They were so excited about their hair this morning they loved it!! Jake was a little tooo cool to get his hair all crazy, I wanted to do his hair all up in a fohawk, I was thinkin that would be way cool. But we were pretty short on time this morning because I had to have Colton to the dentist at 9:00 a.m. to fix his vampire tooth, so it worked out! But I got this idea for their hair from here!! Also this awesome lady is having a very darling giveaway. so go enter!!

Bad luck charm

Yep, so Randy went another year without a deer, so yeah umm I'm thinking that he uhh, hasn't even gotten a deer as long as we have been married, so Jake says I'm dads bad luck charm, and I say well young man your not to charming yourself ya little stinka!!!
So, I don't know exactly how ready I am to talk about this yet but man, I'm so upset. I guess I will just say what I can, Michale now shares a room with Merissa and Monica, and will never have her room back!! OK so that sounded really harsh, but isn't that what happens if you sneak out of the house, with not a thought that what you are doing is wrong!!! And to make matters worse...............if that's at all, she was going into the back yard to make out with a boy, so in her eyes she wasn't sneaking out because this is her house and she was just in the back yard!!! HELLO HELLO HELLO anyone home there, Michale HELLO, it was12:45 in the MORNING, you don't think that is sneaking then I guess I don't know what is!! As far as I'm concerned she's grounded till she's dead!!
So here is another good one!! Last week I made taco soup, the kids all really like it (except Monica everyone cant like it right, but still good odds with 7 kids), so Colton is going to town on it, well there are 3 cans of beans in it but still mom doesn't think of this, so he finishes goes out side to help dad with the 4-wheeler, well mom finishes cleaning up and I down on the computer lookin to see how I'm going to do the girls hair the next day, and then next I here, Randy getting mad mutter under his breath how he cant get anything done around here cause he has to take care of all the poop, well Colton tried to make it all the way up to my bathroom, and as he's trying to pull down his pants and get on the toilet he starts to go so he gets it in his pants on the rug and all over the toilet because he eventually got on there to finish, so Randy is throwing a fit and I go see what happened well I went to clean up the toilet and he took the rug down to the laundry, I thought there were clothes in the washer and I of course wanted to wash the rug so I told Merissa to go put the clothes in the dryer, so I finish up stairs, clean up Colton get him out of the shower get jemmies on come back down stairs and I'm thinking wow that poop smells so strong (do you see where this is going) so I go in the laundry room and I'm looking for the rug, where in the heck did he put that, I look in the washer, nope, I look in the sink, nope, OK its not on the floor, (have you figured it out yet because I hadn't) I look out side, nope, where in the heck , it stinks so bad, OH MY GOSH, yep, they were in the DRYER!! Oh my goodness was I mad!! My first thought was I need a new dryer, then of course I thought of my bank account and then screamed for Merissa, well she says that was what was in the washer and you told me to put it in the dryer!! I said well you can clean it up, (no I didn't make her clean it up, I wanted to but I didn't!!) No I did, saying bad words the whole time!!
So there you have it 3 big posts in one!!

Gotta try................

I got this new cook book from Costco, its Hershey's so many yummy yummy recipes!! I made this one yesterday, and yep its GONE!!!

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake

2 cups Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 8oz. cream cheese softened
1 can 14oz. sweetened condensed milk
4 eggs
2 t vanilla

Chocolate crumb crust

crush 45 vanilla wafers
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/3 cup melted butter

Combine and press into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan

1. Prepare crust set aside. Heat oven to 300 degrees

2. Place chocolate in microwavable bowl, 1 1/2 minutes and then stir if necessary microwave an additional 15 seconds at a time stirring after each heating just until chips are melted when stirred

3. Beat ream cheese in large bowl until fluffy, Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add melted chips, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Pour into prepared crust.

4. Bake 1 hour and 5 minutes or until center is set. Remove from oven to wire rack. With knife, loosen cake from side of pan. Cool completely; remove side of pan. Refrigerate several hours before serving. Garnish as desired.

Now in my mind its garnished with home made whipped cream sweetened with some powdered sugar and vanilla then chocolate shavings, but in my house it didn't last long enough, but if OK not if when I make this one again I will do just that!! (In fact Merissa just came to me and asked if I would make another!!)

Enjoy this one was so yummy, I had to share!!

Can you believe it......

because I cant. My sweet little girl is 3 months old!! She is changing so fast, I just keep thinking can we please just slow down and let me enjoy her just a little. It just feels like we go, go, go all the time. I think that's why I relish our family outings so much because it finally feels like I can really slow down and enjoy just being with my kids, instead of rush here rush there you need to get here you need to get there, is your home work done? Did you read? Did you practice piano?
So anyway, Makenna is trying really hard to roll over, she has almost gotten it a few times, but she does need a little more time on the floor and since nobody seems to want to let her have it who knows how long it will take!! She still loves her tongue, it is so funny watching her play with it, the kids are always sticking out their tongues to her! She is very quick to smile especially if she has had her nap and is fresh from sleep. I just love snuggling up with her, she is so squishy, and melds to me so wonderfully, we just fit, she makes our little family so happy, we are so glad she is ours!

Fun, fun, fun..................

I just LOVE family time, it just does our little (ok not so little) family good to spend some good quality time together, with no outside forces pressing on us!! Of course, the fall break now politically correct, for the deer hunt, so yup that's what we were doing, yes I know it very typical for the guys to go, but not our family, we all go!! The kids (aren't we all) had so much fun, we arrived mid afternoon Thursday, and I think we were all excited to go so we quickly unloaded all the 4-wheelers and hopped on and went for our first ride. Well whats kinda funny to me and that is really not a big deal to me, Randy rides a pretty new 4-wheeler, and I well, yay mines probably 20 years old, and to say the least has no shocks, so over the rocks you pretty much get shook like a shake!! LOL OK so Makenna really didn't like getting all shook up. So the next time we went for a ride I went on Randy's and he rode mine, and she slept like a baby!! LOL Only Randy was not to happy, so the next time we were going for a ride he said I feel like one of the kids and want to throw a fit cause I know you need to ride mine but I don't want to ride yours, so I think I'm going to throw myself on the floor and scream and yell!! Yep the sweet wife that I am Yep I laughed at him, and he decided I need a new 4-wheeler!! Yay right I say not in this economy well make due!!

So Randy went out early Friday morning to scout, and when he got back he was pretty excited he saw 4 big bucks not to far from our camp, so we rode most of the day, then Saturday morning he sees only a couple doe, which he was pretty discouraged, then my nephew and his wife and girls came up and spent the day with us, It was wonderful to visit with them and let the kids play they had a blast!! So needless to say we came back we came back Sunday afternoon the boys stayed cause yep you guessed no deer!!
Randy and Jake came back last night and yep still no deer, he is hoping to go back out tonight and Jake wants to go again!!
See this sweet little face?? See what he is doing yep he is the key looser, yep we spent lots of time looking for keys, he is either trying to start the 4-wheeler or putting the keys in his pocket and then of course loosing them somewhere, luckily we found them each time but it took us a couple times to learn to take the keys out when we were done!! LOL
The kids got a lot of entertainment off of this hill that they tried to constantly run up!!

Look what I did........

Yep, while Michale and I were out shopping for her dress we went into Clair's and Michale said we should get Makenna's ears pierced while we are here and I said..........................OK!! So we did, and she looks darling!!

Here are a couple of darling pictures of my little angel at 10 weeks and smiling like crazy!!

Look what I have been up too!! My girls are absolutely loving wearing flowers in their hair, so yeah, um I guess you could say I went a little crazy with the flowers, and made tons, all colors!! Yay they are so pretty I just love them, one more joy of girls pretty hair, which brings me to my new side bar thing that says where I'm at, well I found this new blog that's teaching us about new hair styles for girls and this site is having a giveaway so check it out!!
OK so yesterday I was totally horrified and had to pull myself back with all the inner strength I could muster not to beat the living#%&& out of Colton!! So I'm looking at this website on making bows and the boys are watching T.v. and all of a sudden I hear this splashing the same time that I hear Jayden scream at Colton, I turn and look and Colton is standing their butt naked holding himself and peeing, yes peeing on his brother and the floor!! Oh my gosh did I want to kill him!! I yell to scare him and stop him for peeing anymore run him into the bathroom and tell him he is supposed to pee in the toilet, he finishes and goes to time out, and then I get Jayden in the shower!! Oh this child is going to be the death of me!!
