This picture always makes me smile. Well I guess not always. The day it happened I was one grumpy mommy.It happened a few months ago but I recently saw the picture again and wanted to share it! The kids had been really quite. Which for every one that knows my kids is not normal. And to top it off Joseph was here too. Well I went in to check to see why so quite and Tate and Joseph were sitting with Chase who had the peanut butter jar eating it by the fist full. Both fists. When I ask them why they didn't tell me Joseph said that he didn't know hat Chase had it. I was a very grumpy mommy but still kept my cool enough to take a few pictures since I knew I would look back and laugh later.

You will find that I shop mostly at Target, Fry's and Kid stores but any time I find a good deal at any store I will share with everyone! Come check out my new blog Best deals on the Block! Pass it along to any one that might want to get good deals here in Mesa!

Finaly over

I am so grateful that yesterday is finally over! Every thing went really well. Most of the kids had their parts memorized. And most of them didn't need any or very little help. Their were a few that I know that the whole thing memorized that needed help with all the people there not to mention ALL the extra people that came. It was wonderful! I knew it would be but you still have to wonder when the practices went as badly as they did.

Jocelyn had a talk and had it memorized but still needed a few one word promptings and Joseph Had his part memorized and then had a violin solo and played it really good. He play I am a Child of God and every one was impressed. On the Friday practice the only time all the kids were actually quite was while Joseph played his song. I am so proud of both of them. Their school teacher came to see Joseph come and play his solo and while she was there realized that she knew Brent. What a small world. They use to be in the same ward. The kids were so excited she came and are making thank you cards for her.

So after the program I had to go and do sharing time. I asked to switch with one of the other ladies because last year I had to do the whole month of October for the program and then I had sharing time for November. I had the music person do a whole Sunday of primary music so I did a whole Sunday of sharing time. I was so afraid that I was not going to have enough things to do but I ran out of time for both Jr. and Sr. But the kids were all very excited to not have to sing more than a song or two.

AAAAHHHHHH now off to the next big thing. I am giving one of my best friends a Baby shower on Nov. 8th which is the same day as my kids fall festival at school. I signed up to take baked goods to be sold. And them after I make it though that I am sure I have a billion things to get done you know like Christmas.... and I asked to have Bryan's families Christmas dinner at my house so I don't have to do as much driving this year. All of my family is with in about 5 miles or so. And we try really hard to see every one on both sides on Christmas. But I will leave all the Christmas stuff for another post:)

I love to shop!

A store clothing is always exciting for me. I found a Myrvyn's that is going to be closed some time mid November. It is at Indian Bend and the 101. Every thing in the store is 50% off there is a few things that are 70% off but not many. The jewelry was 70% + additional 15% off. They had tons of clothes and allot of adult shoes. not many kids other that the Heelys they were $32 after the 5o% off. And they had allot to choose from. Any how I will re post when I find out when they are going to go more off. I am hoping to find some good deals in the next few weeks so I will keep every one posted:)

If you any one reads this tonight the Fry's at Mckellips and Stapley didn't get there truck today like they were suppose to and so they are writing rain checks for allot of the "case" sale. I got rain checks for four, sugar, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, cup of noodles, and evaporated milk. So if you can make it today it might be worth it:)

I should start another blog just for sales and deal:)

It is that time of year again....primary program. I have always enjoyed the primary program from my pew seat. This is my second year of being in charge of it..... nothing to make you feel way to young to have an adult calling than being in charge of a primary program. I know that I am 25 and that I am a adult but I still feel to young for this calling from time to time. I am learning tons and LOVE being in our wards Primary Presidency and LOVE the kids and women I work with! But after our first practice yesterday I am a little nervous about how it is going to go next week. I know the kids will do their very best when the time comes but after going home so frazzled yesterday I will just be glad when next Sunday is over.

I really appreciate all the teachers that come every week and for all the help they were yesterday during the craziness. I appreciate our Chorister for teaching and leading all of our music that is now small job either. I also appreciate all the parents that worked so hard with their children to have their talks ready and had their parts memorized! What a huge difference it makes when the kids were ready instead of me feeding them the lines. I know Heavenly Father always blesses the little ones and the program goes great every year.

We have one more practice on Friday and I am praying that it goes better.

Half way

So this week I am in my 20th week of this pregnancy. I am so excited I am half way done now. And since I found out when I was like 3 week pregnant if seems like forever that I have been Pregnant! I am so excited to be having another little boy! Now that he is moving all the time it helps time move faster to. I know he is all right and don't have to worry as much about him now. I know that is silly But I am a worrier :) Only 20 more weeks or less and he will be here!

First new outfit

Even though I was so sick yesterday Bryan drug me out to the store when we had to take the kids to school. So we went to Target to get diapers and while I was there I got our youngest his first new outfit. I know nothing to exciting but he wont be getting many new things since the other boys don't either most of our clothes come for Joseph. Good thing he is so easy on his clothes since they have to now make it though 3 of my boys after him. Thanks mom for the clothes I really do appreciate them!! Tate and Chase loved this one and Bryan loved that is was 75% of so it was only $2.24.
We still haven't decided on a name yet. Regardless to what Jocelyn may say even though the name Digger is starting to sound cuter the more it is said it hasn't stuck yet. A couple of the names we like are Brennen and Jett there aren't many we can even agree on. Joseph and Jocelyn are both really pushing for Digger. The story behind the name. Joseph said he knew what we should name it if it was a boy (this was weeks ago) he said that we have to chase Chase so if we named this one Digger then he would love to dig. Which in my house is a big thing all the boys love to dig in the back yard. Amazing the way a 5 year old's brain works! I keep teasing Bryan if we can't agree that that is what we are going to have to name him.

I hate being sick

So I have the worst head cold. My head is throbbing, I can't breath out my nose, my ears hurt, my throat kills, and to top it all off I have started coughing....... AAAARRRGGGG..... I HATE being sick. And what really sucks is that I can only take a few different things to help feel better and they aren't working..... I think I need a good nap! But I am just glad that none of the kids have it or at least yet. I hate having to take care of people that are sick when I am too!

Moving like Crazy

Tuesday morning the baby boy was moving around in my belly like crazy so I had Jocelyn come over and I put her hand on my tummy and she got to feel the baby move. She is so cute she was so excited that she had to call Joseph and Mam-maw as soon as he stopped moving around. She felt him 3 times. Now all the kids want to feel the baby move and are always trying to touch my tummy. At least I know them and can tell them no or not right now. I hate when strangers try to touch you. Not that it has happened yet but soon enough I am sure.

It's official

Chase is finally 100% weaned! Now I have a 21 week break of breast feeding. I know most people think I am crazy for nursing while being pregnant but I have with all of them. It helps with the nausea. But I have only been nursing at night for the last few months and have been cutting back on that too. And last night when he woke up he didn't even try!!!! I was so excited to have a short break. I lose my milk at 16-19 weeks so it was time. HHHMMMMM may be Bryan can get up with him now if he wakes up?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!!! That will never happen Bryan sleeps like a rock!

It's a ......

Well we went in today to find out what we're having. I could hardly sleep last night because yesterday mom said what if you don't find out? I had nightmares all night of not being able to find out. I know that it wouldn't be the end of the world but I really wanted to know. Well as soon as the Dr got started he said he thought it was a girl since he didn't see any thing from the back view between the legs. Then the baby rolled over and there was HIS PENIS. We are having a BOY!!! I am so excited. It was so fun to see him moving and rolling and being all over the place the ultra sound was one of his awake times. I don't need to get hardly any thing for him. I feel pretty ready. Joseph was the most disappointed he really wanted it to be a girl and kept telling the Dr he was wrong.

SO now me and Bryan have to start the great name debate since we had a girl name picked but Bryan wouldn't even talk about it being a boy. So if you have any ideas that would fit with the other kids please feel free to share.

Poor Tate

Last night me and mom planed to go out since Bryan had gone to Conference with his dad and brothers. Well I had gone home to get a shower and get ready but Tate wanted to stay at grandmas since that is where they were getting baby sat at. Him and Joseph where in the living room and mom was in her office. Well no one is really sure what happened since between a 3 year old that doesn't talk real well and a very traumatized 5 year old but what we gathered was that he fell between the coach and window and there was A LOT of blood A LOT.

Well Joseph had to call 3 times before I answered my phone since I was blow drying my hair. And all he could say was " It is a emergency" so I keep asking what was and then I heard mom yell "Tell her to come over fast Tate is hurt really bad!" SO i got the other too and we rushed over. Well I called for the baby sitter to be brought up to the kids and asked one of the neighbor girls to come over until the sitter got here and we ran to Phoenix Children's Hospital Urgent Care. I love that place it is so nice and the Dr. and nurses are great! Well they debated between glueing it and stitches and the Dr. opped for the glue. Tate was a totally trooper. He let them clean and glue it with very little almost no crying. I am sure this will not be the last time we have to take him in for some thing like this but I am glad that we haven't had to before now.

Christmas came early at my house

I am so excited! We decided that we were getting a new bed for Christmas. However I have hardly sleep in the last few weeks. I can't get comfortable and my my hips, shoulders, knees, and back kill every morning when I get up so we decided to get a bed now. Well It came yesterday!!! We got a Sleep Number bed since me and Bryan couldn't agree on a bed. The sales lady gave us 2 new pillows and a great deal. I am so happy to finally have a new bed. I have never had a brand new mattress. The next thing is to get a new head board. We gave our old be to Bryan's sister and her husban and they were so excited to finally have a king size bed and get out of their queen size bed. I am just gald that we could help them out! And I know there are a ton of finger prints all over the mirrors but Chase loves to kiss himself. The mattress be for I added all the bedding and Pillows. And then the bed all made. See mom I do know how to make my bed:)
I just love this picture of Jocelyn. She is looking and smiling that never happens! And yes her socks don't match. But they are clean:)
