Where Does the Time Go

Well unfortunatley I do not have a whole lot to write about. Life has been busy as always. Abbie's baptism is on the countdown and I still have a million things to do. Not to mention getting ready for Halloween. So the list has now turned into vital, most important and Oh well it will have to wait till next year!!!!
We've had some sickness and stuff to deal with, with the kids so that has slowed me down a little. Well that is really all I have to say. Oh yah started Dinky Dunkers basketball last night. I always love meeting my new team for the season. I have some good kids and some that will keep me on my toes. It means that basketball is starting soon and that brings in the best time of the year. Nov till March. The countdown to March will start soon.
Well by for now and hope ya'll havin a good day.

My main Man

Well Tevin had his first Thunderbird singers concert tonight. Of course if was great. Simple but sweet and entertaining. He amazes me with the all the abilities that he has. Yet he drives me crazy almost every day. I think that a mother loves her sons so much because they are so different then what they know and they exasperate you yet they bring you so much joy at the same time. At least mine does.
Well life here has been pretty much same old. Busy, busy. Emily is learning how to read and I can't believe how quickly she is picking it up. They use this system called Jolly Phonics and it really teaches them there letters and sounds very quickly.
Abbie lost a tooth today, finally. It is only her third tooth. They seem to be taking forever to be falling out. Boo Boo is growing like crazy and has decided that she needs to have her own personal cell phone at all times. She has even called a few people on occasion with it.
Well that is all for now and I have no pictures to offer but I just wanted to jot down my thoughts about the 4 things that make my life complete!!!

Okay well this post is mostly for me. I need to remember this in later years.

Emily comes into my room yesterday and says mom, how long have those little pictures been on the wall. Referring to the frames on our wall that have been there for about a year now. I replied a long time, why, I 've never seen them before!!!! Then she went ahead and took a picture of them so she would remember that they were there.

She shares my passion for photography and in fact that is what she wants for Christmas.

Back Tracking A Little

Well I started the Blog after Abbie had her Birthday. But I need to go back and post the big night of getting her ears pierced. I love all my children for different reasons and they are each special. Well this little girl, (well I guess she is not really little anymore) holds a special place in my heart. I can remember when we found out that we were having a girl. I knew all along for some reason that she was going to be a girl. She is the only one that I have had that experience. I can remember being so excited. She was the easiest baby in the world. So pleasant, so happy slept through the night so fast. She makes my life easy! And for many of you who know my life.... well it is not easy. She makes everything easy and does things so obediently. She's not perfect and has her struggles but I am so grateful to be her mom.

Anyway enough of the sentiment so on her eighth birthday we got to go and get her ears pierced. She was very excited and we had a wonderful night together. She talked the whole time. There is such a difference when I am in the car with Tevin than with Abbie. Tev and I talk a little and then usually listen to music and sometimes there's silence. But not with Abbie, from the moment we get in the car until the time we come home she does not stop talking. One would wonder what about.... I don't know it amazes me what she thinks about!!!!

Anyway here are some cute pictures of her on her big day!!!!!

And the exploring continues....

Be careful what you wish for

Well it's amazing how life can be funny. It took us two years and two months to finally get prego with Bryna. It was a long and difficult time in my life. But finally the day came when we were blessed to bring Boo Boo aka Bryna into our family. It has not been an easy road. She had reflux really bad for the the first 8 months and so she spent the whole time pucking and not sleeping!!!!Which of course meant no sleep for me. But we are almost 11 months and have made huge progress in the puke department and we finally can sleep all night long( most nights). But on that note she has brought so much joy and laughter into our home. After not having a baby in the home for 4.5 years I think Ryan and I truely forgot what it was like to have a baby. As I was trying to make birthday dinner for Rye the other day it was quite the adventure with a little one at my feet. But it is so much fun and I can't believe that she is almost one!!!!!!!

Turning 36

Well as always life around here is never dull. I have decided that the sooner I accept that fact that my house will never be clean the happier I will be. I guess if I got rid of the 8 kids and the husband then I would have a clean house. But then what fun would life be.

Well on wednesday we celebrated ry's birthday. I had to take pictures of what we ate. Because not much has changed over the last 11 years.

Navaoo Tacos and Skor cake. I have a picture of his 26th birthday and we are eating the exact same meal. I am going to try and find it this weekend and I will post it. The interesting thing is who is in that picture. One child, how many children fill that picture now. 4

Which leads me to my next post!!!!!!
