Sweet Pea is 4.......

I can't believe she's 4! I think I may cry! The first time I held her I realized how much God really loves his children. I am so happy I am her mommy and so happy that with her(and her sissy and brother)around she makes our life complete and to say the least NEVER boring! Happy Birthday Sweet Pea!

I love to blog. Sometimes there is, dare I say, bad things that I get on my soap box about but mostly there are great things that I love to blog about. And 9.5 times out of 10 it's has to do with my family. Well last night we had the pleasure of getting to visit with my nieces(Micah's brother Tony's girls)that we haven't seen in about seven years. And we had so much fun. Needless to say I have to brag on my three wonderful, beautiful, smart, sweet nieces! What kind of Aunt would I be if I didn't?;)

Nieces are:

Kind to their little cousins who like to drool on there cell phones(that they bought with their own money!)......
and are brave enough to carry around a 27 pound baby rhino.....

Nieces love to hold their squirmy little cousins and never complain once about it(while someone is taking pictures at bedtime,ahem,mommy,cough,cough)

And lovingly console the oldest who has big crocodile tears running down her face because she doesn't want them to leave...

And my nieces have the biggest smiles

to match the biggest hearts I have ever seen!!!

Yup my nieces are indeed wonderful!!!

Not Me Mondays.........

It's time for another fun filled edition of Not Me Monday!!! A time for all moms to confess,eh, not confess about being a little imperfect. So buckle up and enjoy the bumpy ride, I mean life!

This week I {did not} feed my children mini frozen pizzas for supper because I knew they would never even touch the food I made for me and my husband. I {would never} feed them processed food to avoid a major meltdown that I just {did not} want to deal with. Ha! I {did not} finally break down and go to the doctor because I thought my throat was out to kill me....slowly. I {did not} ask the doctor if I could get a shot and get it over with because I {did not} have much better things to do than sit in a doctors office and beg for shots! I am much better and I think the doctor is glad he only sees the crazy lady begging for quick relief shots, er, I mean me, once a year! I {did not} delight in a mommy day on Friday. A day where I went shopping, got my hair cut, and met a hot man for lunch all by myself.(Yes,{ I am} talking about that wonderful man I am married to!) I{did not} enjoy myself at all.( I actually did, enjoy myself, a whole lot!) I {am} extremely thankfully for such a wonderful mother who helped out with my circus act for the day. I truly {am} grateful (for real)! I {did not} finally mop my living room and kitchen floors on Friday afternoon, for the first time in, ahem...at least....cough...ahem..two weeks..cough,cough, cough. I {love} to mop and would {never} wait so long to mop my floors. Not me! And Never on a Monday and that's no lie!;)

So what have you {not} been up to? Head on over to http://www.mycharmingkids.net/ and let everyone know what you have {not} been doing!

Once again long time, no blog....

Once again, it has been several weeks since I've wrote a blog! When you are a wife and mother that happens sometimes. Especially when people bring their sick kids to a birthday party and think there is nothing wrong with it. It happens, I know. But it doesn't make me happy especially when my kids catch those colds and spread them throughout my otherwise healthy house. Sigh. Oh well! So after a couple of weeks of tonsillitis, fevers, and the dreaded stomach bug(thankfully we only had one case of it!) we are much better and so is my attitude. God is seriously working on it....my attitude that is....and our healing...but now,especially my attitude! It's not the kids fault they are sick and they are unknowingly brought out among healthy kids. So...God is working on my OCD about my kids being around other kids and all things are back to "normal" on the Lane! We have had a lot of fun playing in the snow this winter and as always are very much happy about Spring being just around the corner! Ah, springtime....windows opened, short sleeved shirts, no bulky jackets, and lots and lots of outdoor playtime! Happiness. Pure Happiness. I will also "toot my horn" for a moment! I have cute two of my children's hair recently and didn't do such a bad job! Not only did they stay still and happy, but the lines where in fact straight and very nice looking! Sweet Pea, who was terrified of haircuts for a long time, let me talk her into getting a trim. She is almost 4 and had her first haircut. I cut about an inch off the back, which isn't a lot because she has a lot of hair! She was almost sitting on it, it was so long! So she has a much healthier look now, minus so many tangles. And then I also cut the boy's hair! I hate to say it but he was starting to sport....a mullet! One day I couldn't handle it any longer and cut his hair while he was eating his Froot Loops! So now, I have added beauty technician to my resume! I love being a mom! There are new adventures everyday! So as I look forward to sunny days and fun days outside, I will try to keep up my blog posts by at least once or twice a week! Then again....only time will tell....after all I am a wife and a mother!
