February already...

Ok..I promised, more blog this year. My goal is at least once a month, so I am getting behind..

I am on a new Adventure..I have decided somewhere along the way, probably a mid-life crisis, but oh well..That I needed to do something. I needed to be someone. Now, at first I think it was just something to get me out of the .."I am not a normal, Mormon Mommy with a lot of kids" person. I mean, There is nothing wrong with that, and I am sure if my reproductive organs functioned correctly, I would have more kids, but that just isin't gonna happen, so I decided what is it that I am all about, I have one kid in school all day, and one in pre-school, and in a matter of a few short years he will be gone too..then what..Just sit and clean the toilets all day..fold laundry, mop, dust..if any of you know will know, that is not my favorite past time, especially the mean there is only so much housework one can do before they lose their minds.

I am 33, I think I can safely say that my dreams of taking over the music world, probably have to come to an end. lol..

so what I love second to music is...FOOD...Hello, of course, that's why I gained so much weight for so long..Mama loves to eat..I could watch the food network 24 hours a day, and the cooking channel..mmm..

Anyhoo, long story short, I decided to open a little know baking and such, who knows what will happen, probably nothing..but at least I have a goal..

and as my husband was talking about it at work, like he does (big mouth) I have had 2 cake orders, that I fulfilled last week, and they actually paid me to make them..I have to admit that was pretty for baked goods..yum...and the baked goods don't sit at my house, waiting for me to eat them all and put back the 40lbs that I have it's a start..I have another order for the end of February..We will see how it works out. I love to be in the kitchen, so might as well put it to good use. :)

I know I really probably got a little to wordy here, sorry..but here are a few pics of my cakes, not a pro or anything..but I am going to be taking some cake decoration classes, just to get the more professional look, can't wait to get my hands on some fondant..:)

I struggle with the thought sometimes, or at least I have, that my worth is not as great as someone who can bring lots of kids into the world, that maybe I am just not good, or at least not good enough, but in more of my tender moments that I have, I realize that it's not a competition down here, who can have the most babies..that we are all different, and have different talents, trials, desires, but that we are ALL precious in his eyes, and he knows what our mission is here, and mine is different than others, but it is no less important.

Not that baking is a mission or, just thinking out loud, all I am trying to say, is we all contribute in different ways to this world, and for Today, I am happy to be me. (of course this attitude of enlightenment could all change tomorrow) :)

lots of love friends and family..xoxoxo

New Year..

Well, I have gone and done it again, neglected the blog, for almost 3 months. Sorry, and if not for know who you are, telling me that I need to update, I probably would forget about it all together..:)

The Holiday's have come and gone, and I am a little happy..I love the time of year, I hate the stress. Every year I say, it's gonna be more simple next year, and it never is, just more things to do, places to be. Thanksgiving is nice, I have family that comes in for it, that I don't get to see much, Christmas is fun, with family and fun, and trying to remember the reason for the season. But by January, I need a vacation..Serious people, I need a vacation..

And as a New Years resolution, among my 50 other..I plan to document more frequently so it does not become so overwhelming..

I have tried adding pics, but it keeps giving me an error signal, so I will have to figure that out, and then hopefully later or tomorrow, I can get some pics up..

few more pics of the wedding party and cousins.

My California Trip.

In the begining of October, I had a little vacation, I was in my cousin Tara's wedding up in Norther California. Beautiful part of California, and it was so nice to be with family. It was the first time EVER that I left my kids. Jeff was a trooper and did a great job with them, with some assistance from grandma as well.
It was a nice break to be able just to have to worry about myself for once, but I did miss my kids, especially at night time.

We had a great time,and am thakful for my family, I love them all.

here are a few pics of me and the cousins.

few more pics..sorry..

Braedon's Birthday

Braedon turned 3 in August.
He is a joy to this family, 95% of the time, the other 5% , the other 5%. :)
I love him very much, he is all boy, loves cars and making belching noises, just like brother and daddy..I guess it's a good thing I don't have any girls (yet) , they would be pretty schocked at all the testosterone around here. :)

here are some pics of the day..or days..of his celebration.

4 months later...

So I know I have fallen off the earth for the past 4 months in the blogging world..I just got really lazy over the summer, and I am still lazy, but trying to be better at this.

I really don't want to go through the whole summer's agenda, that would take to long, so let's take it up on the first day of school.

Keaton is in 1st grade this year, and is doing good.
Braedon is in preschool, and loves it.

here are a few pics.
