The Great Pumpkin Search

So we made it to the pumpkin patch. We didn't make it to the one Add ImageI wanted to go to. By the time we left the house on Saturday, if we made the drive there, we would've had to take pictures with a flash. Haha!! So we went to the one at the church by Evan's daycare. Kelly could've cared less, she was excited to wander through the pumpkins and find one. Evan was so distracted by the pumpkins he wouldn't sit still for a good shot with his sister. Needless to say, at least we have some of them together. They're no price winners by all means. Good enough for scrapbooking. So hopefully this week, when we carve our handsome pumpkin, we'll get some good pics of the sticky mess.

I am sooo excited that Halloween is near. Everyday I pass several pumpkins "lots" , churches that are selling pumpkins. I can't call them pumpkin patches because to me a pumpkin patch is a big field where a farmer has grown the crops and you're picking them from there. Anyways, back to the point. So we haven't gotten our pumpkin yet and to satisfy Kay's urge for a pumpkin I bought 2 mini pumpkins from the grocery store last night. At 5, she still doesn't understand that if it's Wednesday and I tell her to wait until Saturday, how long that is. The next morning she will ask me, is it pumpkin day mommy? So I passed that pumpkin lot again this morning on my way to dropping Evan off at daycare and I really want to go to a "Pumpkin Patch". I am going to google it today and find one, hopefully not extremely far away. Does it really matter though? For me it does, but to the kids anywhere is just fine. Little E could care less really. At 15 months old, he won't even remember it. Wish me luck.

Could be Twins?

People that know both Pixy Girl and Little Prince well enough say they look so alike they could be twins if they were the same age. I thought that only people who didn't know Pixy Girl as a baby would mess up and think some of her baby pictures were Little Prince, but this picture taken when Pixy Girl was 10 months old stumped my father in law once. It's the album cover picture on one of Pixy Girl's baby books and he asked when we took this picture of Little Prince . ?LOL!! Ok, did he not notice the pink bathing suit? But the picture with the white onesie. Do you know who it is?? YOU tell me.


Taking the kids to school in the morning is always an adventure. Getting out of the house on time takes lots of skill. I've mastered getting 2 kids in the truck by 7:20am everyday without leaving anything behind. There have been a few times where we were running a few minutes behind and those few can put you wayyy behind in the traffic line at the elementary school. My regularly traveled route has been busier lately and I was running behind on Monday. Who can blame me when it is my day off. So a friend of mine suggested taking another road to school, part of which is dirt. So I tried the new way to school this morning. I started to turn on the "new road" and Kay asked me "where are we going?" I told her we were trying a new way to school. Which by the way, this road is covered by beautiful oak trees and there are some very gorgeous houses nestled back there. So anyways, we continue down the road and it turns into dirt. Well it was not mantained by any road crew and it was a bunch of whoops and holes and bumps. I look in my rearview mirror and I see Little E laughing and giggling so hard he's about to pop out his pacifier. Kay is laughing the whole time as well. We get to the end to make our turn and E asks me " can we take a new way again? PLEASE mom?" I told her tomorrow we will. I'm looking forward to our "new way", because when it's paved with laughter, that's all that matters. Even if we don't get to school on time.

My joy in my life are my two babies, Pixy Girl and Little Prince. I thank God everyday for these two blessings. You never realize unconditional love until you have a child. The day that Pixy Girl was born and I saw that screaming little miracle that we made, it was surreal. To think that I made that, flesh and blood. That little person was growing inside of me!! Fast forward, a few more years and the same overwhelming feeling was bestowed upon me again.

Animal House

I have always been an animal lover. When I was a kid I couldn't wait to grow up and have my own house so I could have as many as I wanted. Okay, now as an adult and a parent to 2 children by birth and 3 cats, 2 dogs and about a dozen fish. Enough is enough. I told my mom the other day, no more pets!! Even if a wayward stray happens to land on my doorstep, no more! I'll send it to the neighbor's house. The last addition "Miss Kitty" was not planned. It was bestowed upon me to be her surrogate mother at 4 weeks of age. I thought, okay I can do this, I'll take care of it for a few weeks and then find it a new home. I never considered Kay in my BIG plan and she got attached. Well, I am used to animals coming in and out of my life. I've had so many different dogs with hubs in the 15 years we've been together. It just never worked out for us, for one reason or another. Schnitzl and Ryelee better thank their lucky stars that they're still here. LOL!! Anyways, Miss Kitty is still here, oh only about 3 months later. I did try to find her a new home, but I guess no one wants a black cat. So I'm learning to live with 3 indoor cats. UGH. I'm not a fan of cleaning cat pans, thank you Jason, but it's not my job. Unless, ahem, some one forgets to take care of it. Miss Kitty has been very curious of the back door. She runs to it everytime I open it for the dogs to go out. Hmmmm.

Things I Can't Say


About Me

I was born on August Friday the 13th. I follow many of the personality traits that are typical to Leos, such as being loyal, independent, sensitive, full of life and stubborn. I enjoy being the center of attention, but I'm not vain about it. I like compliments but I don't expect them. I am usually in control of most situations. I am a perfectionist; neat freak that is obsessive compulsive when it comes to cleaning my house. I find joy being the housekeeper, laundry folder, dish washer, nose wiper, spot cleaner, rule teacher, taxi driver, cheerleader, book reader, grocery shopper bed making mom to my two children. I strive to be a good role model for my children. I am whom they learn from and look up to on a daily basis. I want to show them that you can have your cake and eat it too Until this summer I was a fulltime mommy and worked a full time job. I am hanging up my hat at work and plan to be a SAHM. I will learn to live life being with my kids 24/7 and find the balance of raising my children and enjoying outside activities in my “spare” time. Is it possible? Join me! My life is a busy, crazy, fulfilled one! I wouldn’t have it any other way!
