Do you know what tomorrow is????

Some answers may include: It's the first day of December, some may say oh no, I have to shop, some may say it's just a Tuesday. Well let me tell you the truth. Tomorrow is Tuesday, December 1, 2009. And yes you only have 23 shopping days left. BUT tomorrow is also the day that I get to meet and hug, and take a picture with Ree Drummond. She is I have followed her blog for over 2 years now, and what can I say but I LOVE HER dearly. She is like a long lost friend. Her blog is incredible. She is funny, witty, corky, beautiful inside and out. She loves to cook and loves her family. What is better that that in this world?? Please if you have been living under a rock and not had the opportunity to visit her blog then do so TODAY!! I am like a giddy kid, waiting for Christmas morning. Can not wait to show you all her picture from my very own camera:)))

Sorry about this picture, but that's how I feel!!

I made it, I made it!!!!

Some of you are aware that I have been a single parent now for the past 6 days. And tonight well it's my last night alone. I love/ hate times like these. I hate that we are away from Bryce. He hates to be away from us. But I LOVE when we reunite. He is ever so happy, and so are WE. We have been talking about our Daddy reunion all day. I am excited about co-op. But really could leave right now. I want/need to be in My Love's arms. I feel so safe there. But I am so incredibly Thankful to my Lord and savior. Because I was rewarded with sweet sleep this time. I was not scared like I normally am. It has been great. But tomorrow, well it will be like heaven:)) I also want to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone near and far.

Be Blessed my Friends,

What do you do with left over Donuts??

We make donuts for our kids every now and then. Before you say oh my. Let me tell you a little secret. All we do is get flaky biscuit dough, use a donut cutter to make the holes and then fry them up. My kids make the icing usually a vanilla flavored and OJ flavored. Anyway normally there aren't any leftover. Like I may get one and we make 2 cans. But the other morning Bryce was gone and I was feeling rather special. So I made them, and Colin made the icing. Wellll....... we had some leftovers. And it's not like we are going to reheat them, so we fed them to the birds. They have really enjoyed their tasty treats.

Honey Sugar Suuugar Mama's Baby

OK so I will do this again! Let me tell you. I have avoided doing this post again. I sat for an hour and did this really great blog. I was so proud of myself, it was the retold story of Owen;'s birth. I was uploading my last picture and the entire post disappeared. I tried for another 10 minutes to see what I did and Nothing came back. So I walked away from the computer and cried:(( So here we go again.

It was 5 years ago that I was expecting my third boy. I could not have been happier. I always knew I was a boy mom. So here we go getting our place ready and gearing up for the arrival of boy #3. But then pregnancy bliss, left quickly. I got really sick. And the Sciatic nerve that usually bothers me at the end of my pregnancy. Well it reared it's ugly head and decided that I needed to endure it's wrath the ENTIRE pregnancy. So Bryce literally had to help get me dressed every morning. Not sure he minded that part:0 And then Cheryl my wonderful MIL came to live with us for the summer. She was there to help me and the boys survive. Total side note but at night she would call my FIl. And cry on the phone cuz she missed him so. It was the sweetest and hardest thing to watch. I was so thankful to her for all that she was doing. Yet my heart ached for her. OK so mushy stuff to the side. We need to talk, birthing pains, mucus plug, and stripping of the membranes. Ready? So since you all are aware of the pain, and misery that I went through during my pregnancy. You will understand when I tell you that I begged, pleaded and cried. For the doctor to take my baby early. I could do this no more. I did not want to do this anymore. I was DONE. I convinced him, or maybe my very fluffy body convinced him. He started to strip my membranes daily. That did nothing but make me cry. So he scheduled my induction. It was set, November 3, 2004. We were to be at he hospital by 6:30am and by 5:15 that evening. My Honey Sugar Sugar Sugar Mama's baby was in the world. He was the cutest thing ever. So there you go. I managed to rewrite the post. Now remember that was 5 years ago. So I am not to be held accountable for the sketchy memories!! Enjopy pictures of my sugar sugar:))

Two words: Divorce SUCKS!!!

This is my parents a mere 11 months ago.

Sorry guys but tonight is a venting night for sure. It is official. My parents will be divorcing after 39 year marriage. Was it perfect? No. But does anyone have a perfect marriage? NO. So here it is... After meeting and getting prego at the age of 14 and 15 my parents got married. Then they got a divorce because my mom lost the baby. They got remarried and had my brother. Split again, then remarried again with me, my brother, and sister at the third wedding. We were actually in our parents third wedding weird I know. But it is also all I have ever known. Their marriage was hard. At the age of 19 my mom and dad had 3 kids, a miscarriage and a full hysterectomy. So we were raised in a crazy, loud home. Then we moved to the country to get away from all the drama. We did well as a family. It was not ever perfect, but we were HAPPY. Then we grew up dad said he waited for us till he left. Thanks.:( So now I am a 34 married woman with 4 kids. And still want to cry like a baby. The only thing I have ever known was this family, as dysfunctional as it was, it was mine. Now what are we going to do about holidays? Really kill joy. I HATE it. What do I tell my kids? Will I ever be able to befriend her(his girlfriend)? What, about my kids don't they count? Oh man, this has been happening it did not just happen today. BUT I don't like it. And neither does the God I serve. Why not reconcile? Why do we choose sin? It is only good for a while. Then it brings death. I HATE THIS. I am not quite sure who to be angry at. One day it's mom the next it's dad. Hard for me I am have always been daddy's girl Now daddy is unavailable. Someone else is taking up all his time. I looked at statistics all afternoon, and wanted to throw up. There are 3 easy steps for a quick divorce, do it online, get the best attorney and Win. Really this is what we have become. Get out of Marriage free, quick ,and easy. Makes me want to throw up. Sorry but this is my reality right now, and frankly it just hurts!
