Worse Mom of the week, for sure goes to me!

Baileys Accident:
So about a week ago when I was finally getting around to getting all our Christmas stuff out, I should have known Bailey might have wanted to play with the stuff, but I was not thinking. I put are cute little stockings up on out mantel with our nice rock solid stocking holders. Of course Bailey's curiosity got to her like usual and she yanked one of the stocking down, and wouldn't you know one of our stocking holders fell and broke on top of her head, leaving her with a nice gash!
My poor baby! We couldn't get it to stop bleeding. I called my good friend Cynthia who happens to be a pediatrician and told her what happen. I told her that I didn't think she needed stitches but that she might need some super glue! And to my rescue she came! She had some Durobond at home would be glad to take care of it for me. Thanks to Cynthia! I tell ya it sure does pay to know a doctor who takes house calls but best of all who is welling to do it for free!

Bostons Accident:
About 4 days after Baileys accident Boston got his very own head injury, I mean like sister like brother, any ways. Bailey had broken one of our floor laps down stairs. I was cleaning it up got a bag to put the glass in. Just when I was ready to take it up stairs and out to the trash. Bailey was climbing up our entertainment center so I hung the bag of broken glass on our stair Bannister thinking I would go get Bailey down then take the bag up stairs but as I went toward Bailey, Dave had just walked through the door and Boston heard him. Whenever Boston hears Dave come home he rush's to him immediately! Boston shouted out "Daddy, Daddy" tripped over the first step and fell into the bag of glass and sliced his head open! Not again, I felt like the worlds worse mom! My poor little man! Of course his injury was tens times worse! He screamed at first, I think he was more scared of all the blood but he calmed down quickly and just keep telling Dave and I, if we got him a band aid he would stop bleeding. We ran him to the E.R. We knew for sure he was going to need stitches. He did such a good job! He struggled through the shots but actually fell asleep during the last few stitches. He tells every body he has a really cool band aid called stitches, there blue and he has seven of them! He has also said "When can I get more" I told him hopefully never but I am sure this wont be the last time it's just the beginning!

Half way to 2 and 3, a few updates on how big we are getting around here!

Bailey Cakes
  • This little girl lights up a room! She could dance all day long. I love how she puts her hands on her hips and shakes her bottom. Her dad and I could watch her do this all day long! Her newest thing that her dad taught her is how to do the sprinkler, I just love how short her little arms are and how hard she tries to do it! Classic!
  • She is doing some fun new tricks. She loves to put her hands in the air as we tell her "raise the roof", fold her arms and say her prayers, wash her hands, tell her "nice to meet you" and she will put out her hand for a hand shake!
  • She will be a great mommy some day. She takes such good care of her baby! I love how she will get a blanket out, wrap her baby in it go and get a pillow, lay her on the floor and comes and tells me to "shhhhhhhhh, baby blah blah blah" which I am pretty sure translates into be quite my baby is sleeping!
  • This lady could DESTROY a room seconds. As much as I can't stand it, it cracks me up to chase her around telling her to "STOP" while she dies laughing thinking it's a game. Her machine gun laugh gets me the most!
  • I don't know if any one knows how Dave is with food but Bailey she JUST LIKE HIM TO A TEE when it comes to food! No exaggeration she acts like she is going to die if she never eats at least ever 5 Min's. We often have to stop for eating to much which turns into a very long tantrum. But what gets me is a little she is. I guess she really is like her dad where she can eat anything and it all goes to her big toe!
  • Bailey makes me so very HAPPY in so many ways, I love this little girl so muccccccch!
Boston Taters
  • Loves all the old school Christmas moves. We watch Frosty the snowman I don't know how many times of the day. He knows all the words to Frosty the snowman and as much as I am sick of that movie I will never get sick of him singing that song or his cute little man voice he sings with!
  • Here is a few things he is constantly telling me "I can do it", "I already know how to MOM", "Mom I need money", "Santa and Frosty are coming to bring me presents", He questions everything and is always asking "why MOM" Sings "POPCORN POPPING" very loudly to Bailey when she cries, he thinks this will make her fell better!
  • New favorite thing to do is build forts with all the couch cushions, blankets anything he can do to stay away from all the alligators. The other day one got hurt so he asked me to get his imaginary alligator a band aid, so we did and now all is set right in imagination land until his next adventure!
  • I think one of these days I will have to take him to the doctor's for fear he will break his legs. He likes to see how many stairs he will clear. Every time he jumps it is always a stair more than the day before and he always tells me" Don't worry I can do it MOM"!
  • I love when we all get ready on Sundays for church he is always so sweet to me and follows me around the house and tells me "MOM you ready for church! You look so Handsome and Daddy is handsome and Bailey is so pretty"!
  • What more can I say I love this little man and I can't say enough about him. I hate that he is getting so big so fast!

A Fat Cats Birthday!

We celebrated this guy here, Birthday the other night. Thanks to all those who came to surprise and wish him a Happy Birthday!

This Uncle here was kind enough to wrangle this little lady for some of the night. I think that if he could handle her he could handle at least three of her!

A little sympathy weight never hurt any one!


Checking out my score. Boston helped me a lot with my game. I am glad to say we at least got to 50!

Enjoying pizza!

Some of us hanging out!

100th post!

Is this really going to be my 100th post? Wow can't believe I even have about 100 things to post about. I am sure there are only about two people that glance at our blog, I mean I don't really care I do it for me and to get my journaling out of the way, but If you are reading here is my 100 things about me! Well see how far we get!

  1. I love my husband SO MUCH! I am not one of those girls who constantly ohs and ah's over my man but he does earn a shout out every once and awhile. So I have say my man rocks and one of my favorite quotes "He is the cheese to my macaroni" -Juno (I watch that movie way to much if you can't tell in my resent posts.
  2. I have the best 2 kids ever! They make my world and I am so lucky to have these special spirits in my life! I can't wait to see what they have to unleash in this world!
  3. I really can't stand when people take showers and they leave the shower curtain opened. I have to shut it immediately!
  4. I have to admit I am a little obsessed with vacuuming! I vacuum 2 to 3 times a day! It drives Dave insane!
  5. I hate when Dave sneezes it freaks me out and for some reason I want to be mad at him!
  6. I am really bad at doing my laundry. I am such a procrastinator and you can usually find a pile or some would say mountain of laundry in my laundry room!
  7. I always cry when I see a wedding video for some reason!
  8. I am glad that my husband is way into fitness and most of all he does not press me to get into it as much as he is. I am glad he loves me for who I am.
  9. Any one who knows me knows I could craft all day! I can't wait until I have a craft room one day!
  10. I am excited about having a third but it does scary me about being out numbered.
  11. I can't decided whats harder to have Boys or girls! They definitely have there differences but I still can't decide.
  12. I have been really bad with Boston's bed time routine and I can't wait until I get sleep one day!
  13. I secretly want to learn how to break dance and pop one day!
  14. I really love the teeny bop per TV shows that I probably should not admit like, like Secret life of the American teenager, Glee, Make it or break it. But to bad I do!
  15. I also like cheesy teen movies like step up 2, Bring it on and my favorite all time Clueless, what sad is I could quote that movie word for word.
  16. I always try to get into the latest book series that everyone seems to get into but I can't. They almost always drive me crazy!!!
  17. I could eat California Pizza Kitchen every day!
  18. I miss having a Disneyland season pass every year when I was little. I would love for my kids to have the same. And I often get jealous when I hear some cousins that live in the OC have there season passes and go every weekend just get out of the house!
  19. Dave gave me a game cube for our first Christmas together. He knows that I hated it and I am glad he has learned his lesson. I have yet to see any game system under my tree yet. All though this might be a double standard I wouldn't mind getting a Wii!
  20. Maybe because I pregnant but I don't like the smell of all of Dave's supplements! Yuck!
  21. I don't know how much further I can go but I will keep going!
  22. I love that my little Yorkie sleeps with me all night. She keeps my feet nice and warm.
  23. I have to wash my bed sheets every Wednesday. I love going to bed in a nice clean bed. Especially when Dave tells me he went to the gym and didn't take a shower, I totally have to wash them right away!
  24. I can't wait until we upgrade from a queen to Cal king one day. I tell you, it's really hard to sleep and share a queen bed with a 6"3 guy!
  25. I think my brother is the funniest person I know. I love to hear him laugh and watch movies with him, he seriously makes them that much more funnier than they really are!
  26. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE root beer floats! They are the best!
  27. I get way into all those crime shows like Forensic files, snapped, 20/20, night line, 48 hrs, any thing that has to do with murder I get way into it. I hope that does not sound to creepy.
  28. I my ultimate dream would to be to illustrat children's books one day! What sad is I use to collect kids books all the time just because I was in love with the illustrations.
  29. I don't like it when my towels get to soft I kinda like the scratchy feel, so when I get out of the shower I feel like I am actually getting dried off!
  30. Is it just me or are people always on KSL like me, I love finding a good deal and you can often find me looking even if we don't need any thing.
  31. Are you bored with this yet?
  32. I am scared to admit but sense last time I had to have a c-section I am really worried about having another one. I really hated every moment of it!
  33. I love to re-furnish furniture. I find it calming. I love seeing the potential in something so old and bet up. Bringing it back to life makes me so very HAPPY inside!
  34. I love having girl, don't get me wrong who doesn't love girl shopping but some times it can get over whelming and I love knowing that when I go boy shopping I have one little corner of the store to stick to.
  35. Bailey has way to many hair bows but I love to make them. Let me know if you need any!
  36. I do spend to much time on the black whole called Facebook and I need to get my self in control.
  37. I miss cooking it's the one thing I can't do when I am prego, the smell just gets to me!
  38. I love that my husband is from some where different than Utah. I am glad it's some where cool like Rhode Island, one of the most amazing places I have ever been to!
  39. I really want to see wicked! One day I will get the chance, maybe in New York? I have hinted this to Dave numerous times!
  40. I love a good road trip. I love going for long drives even if I am not going any where, it is so peaceful to me!
  41. I hate being late to things and don't like when people are late it gets me so mad some times! I am not sure why, but I have learned to let it go.
  42. I have enjoyed having a blog. It's fun to look back and watch my kids grow!
  43. I'll be honest I never liked selling Mary Kay but the make-up perks were not half bad!
  44. I miss living in California some times. I miss the ocean and did I mention Disneyland?
  45. I don't think it's possible to come up with 100 things?
  46. I love every thing organized! I love that every thing has it's place but it is nice to have a junk drawer!
  47. I can't wait when church moves to nine this twelve o'clock stuff isn't cutting it any more.
  48. I am to obsessed with shoes not just for me but for my kids. They have way to many and Dave gets so mad at me when I bring another pair home, I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF!
  49. I know this sounds snobby but I promise I'm not but I won't ever let my kids wear any thing with characters on there clothing, only pj's. It's me being weird.
  50. So I think 50 things is enough. I sure most stopped back at #2!

Family Rules!

So here is my latest craft I have been working on! I have been wanting to do this for awhile and I am so glad I finally got to. It is our own Family rules. It is so easy to make and the best part, it's really cheap! So if you want to make one here is what you need.

  • 18x 24 canvas, painted what ever color you want.
  • Depending on how many rules you have you will want different scrap booking paper of your choice and I have heard some people use fabric instead.
  • Cut your paper into strips. (Most scrap booking paper is 12 by 12 so I had to piece mine together to get 16 inches.)
  • I then made a list of rules that were important to me.
  • I wanted all kinds of styles of fonts. I gathered all kinds of different rub-ons, stickers and viynal lettering that I wanted to use to create my rules.
  • After you get all rules completed then you mod podge them on to your board.
  • When your all done it's ready to be hung were all can see. Have fun!

  • Here are the rules that I used.
  • Share everything except........Bad ideas!
  • Sing silly, Dance crazy, Hug often, Say I love you!
  • Forgiveness............Mandatory
  • Never leave angry
  • Encourage your siblings......Share in their joy
  • Say your prayers, thank God for this family
  • Husband hug your wife daily and wife always be on his side
  • Keep your promises
  • always tell the truth
  • Obey your parents
  • Have fun, be kind, ask first, No whining
  • Use your manners- Yes, please No, thank you

How does this happen? I swear I was watching him but totally missed this I guess!

This is what happens when your not an attentive mother! OOPS!

Just a few things we did yesterday!

We took the kids to the park, hoping to get one more good play day outside!
Bostons favorite thing to do when he sees a swing set. He likes to see how long he can hold on for!
Dave and Bailey taking a walk together.
"He loves me he loves me not, it doesn't matter I'm all he's got!"
Later that evening we had are neighbors over for dinner then we took our families out to one of my favorite places Gardener Village, of course we dressed up our kids for some fun pictures. Bailey the butterfly!
The crew, check out the monkey isn't he the cutest ever!
Boston the tiger! When I took Boston Halloween shopping, I asked him what he wanted to be. His first response was a Big kid, only because he wacthes a potty training video that implies that if you use the potty you are a big kid. So I told him to pick something else, then he said Nephi, I am so glad he knows who Nephi is but I told him he needed a costume that required more clothing so we found a tiger costume and now he thinks he is Sher con from jungle Book! He wears it all day long, pretends Bailey is Balou the bear and chases her around the house all day roaring at her!
Happy Halloween!

Thoughts, nothing but thoughts.

I am not one to use my blog for sharing or writing down my thoughts. I am not clever with words and I am not good with English. It's not an interest of mine an if I had the talent maybe I would use my blog as a journal. I am just a simple stay at home mom who crafts all day. So besides all that here is a something I was thinking about and was curious about what other people thought as well. It's had me thinking.....

The other day I went to a baby shower with a good friend of mine and She had a pressing thought on her mind. She asked if she could share with me and wanted to know what I thought. she had asked me when I become an Aunt would I love my siblings children more than my husbands siblings children. Of course I said NO, I would love them the same, I said. She then asked do you ever notice a difference with the way in-laws are with your children then your own sibling? I told her, I guessed I never noticed but maybe. She told me that she was not complaining about her in-laws and how they are with her kids but how she started to pay attention to how she was as an Aunt herself. Things like doing a little extra for her own siblings kids like bigger gifts or just the way she interacted with them, then her husbands siblings children. She had said the same thing that of course she knew that she loved all her nieces and nephews equally. And how excited she was when each one was born. But had noticed over time as an Aunt that sometimes she did do more for her own sisters then she did for sister in-laws. It bothered her that it was not something she did with intent, never to hurt anyone but you just tend to because you tend to do more for your own family. She asked me to make sure that whatever I did for my siblings children I would do the same for all no matter what side they were on, family is family no matter what.

So I know this might sound silly but it did get me thinking about things like that. As I become an Aunt soon I hope I am equal and fare with all family members that I would never hurt anyone because I did more for my own family then my in-laws.

When I got home that night the Ensign and Friend where on the kitchen table. I usually start with the Ensign first but this time I sat down with the Friend first. And wouldn't you know I open to THE FAMILY a proclamation to the world, With a talk and story by Cheryl Esplin. She talked about how all family is important to make sure you love and care for everybody the same. As I read it just made me think of my baby shower experience. I hope that everyone in my family on both sides know that I love each and every one and how special they are to me. For the love they show me and my simple little family. I just thought that this was interesting and it taught me what I want my family members to see me as, some one they can count on because they know how much I love them!I

This makes me Glee-ful inside!

Seriously so EXCITED for this show! I think I have watched the pilot like 4 times. We don't have cable at home so I have to watch it online but so worth it. I have made Dave watch it several times with me. He says he's getting sick of it but I know he gearing up for it because he asked to watch it again last night when we could have watched anything else online: As he secretly was laughing into his pillow, hoping I would not notice. Ya right I know he's just as in love as I am!
So hurry and watch it if you get the chance, such a funny show!

It's only been 3 years already?




Dave and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary on the 2ND. It may not seem like a lot of time together, that we are still new at this whole married thing. Maybe when we get to 7 maybe 10 years we will know a thing or to about marriage. But I do know one thing, is how MUCH I LOVE DAVE!!!
And in our three years how much I grow to love him each more with every passing day! He teaches me more than he will ever know and is the best Dad in the whole world!
I can't wait for 30 more years of being together, actually let's make that eternity!

One moms trash is a little girl's treasure, or some thing like that!

I have been reading up on How to make kids clothing. I had a bag full of clothes that I have been meaning to take to the D.I but have not done so. I'm sure some body could use all the clothes but I got this idea to make the kids some fun clothes. It has been a lot of fun! My first project; I took an old skirt of mine and made a dress for Bailey. I really liked the way it turned out! My wheels are turning, all the things I can make. Instead of seeing old clothes I see endless material and pj's, skrits, dresses, and anything else that crosses my mind!
Here is a few pics of Bailey modeling her new dress!(Never mind that Bailey's Flower is falling out!)
