last nights conversation over pizza

Auntie: Brady are you going to be an actor some day?

Brady: No Auntie

Auntie: What are you going to be?

Brady: I am going to play drums!

Too cute..... Brady.... you rock star!

Update on Camera - 3 week turn time to fix it.... it has been almost two..... i am going through serious withdrawal. I also have missed Logan's eight month shrinking monkey picture! So we will have to take 9 months and write about all of his accomplishments in two months....... bummer.

kindness of a stranger

today while standing at the check out line at king soopers the kindness of a stranger caught me off guard. after a long day of errands and avoiding our house because the roofers were here pounding brady logan and i stopped to buy dinner for the night. maybe it was the look on my face as i asked my child with hot chocolate covering 90% of the front of his shirt for the 5th time to stay in the car cart. the look on my face as logan squealed uncontrollably. the daze on my face in between all of that that this woman felt i needed some help. she handed me two pennies so my boys could ride the horse on the way out. what a kind thing to do for a mommy trying to get back into the swing of action after a peaceful vacation. i truly needed some help getting back into the saddle. thanks to the kind lady who put a smile on my boys faces and gave me two minutes of peace this afternoon. people truly do amaze me :) it has me thinking what kind of little random thing can i do to completely turn someones day around.

napa - ing

well well..... i had a few days with out the boys..... oh yes....... i survived a lot better than i thought i would. dare i feel guilty.... it was not looking so good as a left with two sick boys on antibiotics and one clingy baby... not to mention the crying as i hugged grandma smith goodbye pleading her to take good care of my boys (i had no doubt she would).....but alas the plan took off and i found myself without my children for the first time ever.



i got to sit still for more than two minutes

here i am back to reality now it took only two seconds to get there after stepping in my door but tell the truth? i wouldn't have it any other way.

good times, good wines and good friends. there is life outside of children and i can still hang. what a feeling i tell you, oh what a feeling.

Mommy's 30th B-day Party

Sad to admit but true. I turn 30 in just a couple of days. A new decade for me. I must say that I have everything I want and more, so nothing to fear as I embark on this new chapter of my life. I have a great husband and two adorable kids........ who could ask for more...... apparently my own personal band and a really bad hangover the next day.
By the way honey thanks for throwing me such a great party! You are amazing! Love you!

thoughts to ponder

'Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.' A sharp tongue can cut your own throat. If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn't oversleep. Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important. The best vitamin for making friends..... B1. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge. One thing you can give and still your word. You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself. If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished. One thing you can't recycle is wasted time. Ideas won't work unless ' You' do. Your mind is like a functions only when open. The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice. The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what you might have been. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you. Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back. Today's Message of the Day is: Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.
