Family Photo Proofs

Okay I know these are awful proofs, but its all they gave me. I think they turned out really good and I am very happy with them. The kids did wonderful considering this is the first time we have ever done a family photo shoot of any kind. When I pick up the package on Dec. 15th I'll scan and put them up. :)

Family picture

We went to K-Mart today and they are having a Christmas special. So we signed up to get our Family Christmas Picture done this Friday at 3:30pm at the Olan Mills photo place inside K-Mart. This will be our first ever family photo, so I hope it turns out nice. Wish us luck with all 4 kids. The girls are going to wear red dresses. The boys are going to wear light blue dress shirts with little red ties. Me and Chuck are going to wear white shirts. Hopefully we all look okay next to each other with the different colors. We shall see I guess. Until then, Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

It's COLD!

Thank goodness I called the plumber yesterday and they are going to come turn our heater on! I know weird, plumbers turn the heater on??? Beats the heck out of me! All I care about is they are going to turn the heat on TODAY between 1-3pm. I can't wait, it's so cold! Me and the boys are all huddled up on my bed this morning under covers watching cartoons.

Yesterday we got a letter from our new church. Enclosed was a $5 Wal-Mart gas card! How kewl is that?!?! I'm beginning to like our new church more and more. I am even looking forward to going this Sunday. Unfortunately it might just be me and the girls going, because the boys are still not feeling well and I don't want them to go to church and get other kids sick.

Well I have to go wash dishes and get some laundry done. Have a great day everyone!!!

Sick babies and not much sleep

Last night while finishing up my homework, my husband fell asleep next to me on the bed and proceeded to talk in his sleep. I couldn't understand half of what he said, but it was interesting to try and figure out what the heck he was saying. I figured I'd play on the computer until he finally stopped talking because I knew there would be no way I could sleep while he was over there having his own conversation in his dreams. After about 20 minutes of this he woke up, startled and upset. I closed my laptop, put it aside and rubbed my fingers through his hair for a little while as he calmed down. Soon after, CJ starts coughing and crying. So I go check on little man and he isn't feeling to hot so I gave him some cough and cold medicine to help him sleep. Poor Kristopher had already started not feeling well earlier in the day and I had given him some cold medicine already to help him sleep through the night. So both kids were drugged up and hubby had already fallen back to sleep, so now its my turn right? Yea right, I tossed and turned forever it seemed. I finally feel asleep around 2am I believe. Around 5am hubby woke me up to tell me goodbye as he was leaving for work. I then tossed and turned some more and about 6am CJ started whining and coughing some more. So much for going back to sleep. I didn't even have the energy to fight with the girls to get them ready and off to school this morning. Both the boys have runny noses and don't feel good. The girls seem to be okay though. I'm going to have to bribe them into babysitting some today so I can get caught up on some house work and laundry. Poor kids probably would rather go to school then be stuck at home helping me. But getting them to school this morning by 7:30am after not much sleep and being exhausted was just not at the top of my list. My list was more like get out of bed, change diapers, give medicine, feed kids, can I go to sleep now?

We have a New President! Barack Obama!


I must say I think he has a beautiful family. Lets pray he leads our country in the right direction and also keeps his promise to bring our soldiers home!

Happy Election Day!


So how many of you lovely people out there plan to vote today? I found out that the school my girls attend, is actually an official voting site. Unfortunately I can't vote in Texas because I'm registered in North Carolina. Figures. Maybe next time. I'm curious who our next president is going to be and a little nervous about it as well. I want all the soldiers to come home from Iraq, I know that much. So which ever president plans to do that, I want them to win.

Happy November!


Well I am a few days off from the 1st of November,  but I wanted to still tell everyone "HAPPY NOVEMBER!"  I can't believe October is gone already. I put away the Halloween decorations earlier, now they will collect dust until next year. Soon we will be pulling out Christmas decorations. WOW where did the year go? It's been busy that's for sure. Me and the kids have lived in 3 different places this year. I was blessed with a beautiful little niece, Adrian, who I adore and miss terribly. I was blessed with a little cousin, Aaron, who is so very handsome and special. There were also two other little ones brought into this world this year, my brother had another baby, and one of my close friends had a baby. Wow all these babies, how blessed we all are! We have so much to be Thankful for!
