i'm so probably think this blog is about me

This was a challenge from my sister Liz....who was challenged from a friend...and I am passing it on to you...

First I got all dressed up. This rarely happens because I do have 5 kids, and lets face it...I am last on the totem pole when it comes to hot showers and fancy clothes.
But today was different, I was feeling kind of "mommy hot" and went outside for some pictures. I took about a hundred (thinking one out of a hundred was probable)and soon went inside after getting some funny looks from the cars passing by. Once inside I flipped through my pictures and thought "Hey I'm not so bad looking". So I sat on my couch by the window and took some more...

This was fun...I hate having pictures taken of myself. I feel like i am never ready and turn out looking stupid, but with me manning the camera I was always ready...thus the same face in all of them ") Looking over them I found that I like what I see...and more importantly who I am. I think I will even get one made up for my husband to put on his desk at work.

So now it's your turn! Have a good attitude, get all prettied up, and go take some pictures!! You'll have fun and feel great!! Take some of yourself. Or have your husband or kids take some...see your self through their eyes. Or call me. It will be fun! Can't wait to see what you do!

Today I am watching Nenas kids. I took them to mcdonalds and bought them all a kiddie cone. Beckham was in the middle in the second row of the durango so he got the job of handing them out to everyone as I gave them to him. He did an excellent job until he got to the last one...his. as I handed it to him his fingers slipped and it fell icecream down on the floor. As he picked it up I tried to console him seeing the disapointment on his face. He took one look and was so excited YUM SPRINKLES!! and before I could stop him he devoured it (flecks of dirt and grass and who knows what else). maybe I am a bad babysitter, but I couldn't help but laugh. Such a funny kid

6 months old

Yes this is a big milestone in life...the big 6th month...1/2 year post
Jace is getting to be such a big boy! He rolls both ways, plays with toys, and loves his binky. He is not quite sitting up yet but it won't be too much longer i'm sure. He weighs a ton (about 20 lbs) and has a ton of squishy rolls. He also coos and has a smile that lights up the room. I can't believe that even though he has the chubbiest cheeks in history, when he smiles you can see a faint dimple. He still has no teeth but i am sure they aren't too far off either.He is not too keen on solid food, but I am still desperatly trying. I love this little guy!

When he is on his tummy gravity does a number on those cheeks ")

Courtney turns 9!

I got the honor this year of sharing mothers day with Courtney. She was born 9 years ago on May 10th. I really can't believe that it has already been that long. It sure goes by fast!

What a wonderful gift... to be able to share mothers day with my first born made this day extra special.
I love you Courtney Lauren, I am so greatful for the knowlege that you are eternally mine.
love mom

It's about time!

Jace has had a couple of really rough weeks. It all started about 3 weeks ago when he started being really fussy, kind of congested, and developed a really croupy cough. the next week it was all that plus diaherea, throwing up, a fever, plus he wasn't eating very well. the following week he developed an ear infection, eye gunk, and a rash all over his body. I took him back to the doctor for the 3rd time and they FINALLY put him on some antibiotics. Three days later *after not smiling for weeks* he looks like this today...

I am so glad to see his smile again!

Baby Powder...

I told Myles to get me the baby bad.
