Just a bad week

I'm sorry if I had anyone worried.. I am really doing OK. Yesterday i spent the entire day outside and that seemed to help quite a bit. It's amazing how a little sunshine can help. I woke up, made the kiddos whatever they wanted for breakfast, took them to the park, worked in the yard with the kiddos, went to stake conference, and then came home to my hubby who I hadn't seen all day. The other night I guess I just needed to get my feelings off my chest and it felt good to do so. I slept really well because of it. So to everyone, I'm sorry if I made you feel worried or concerned. Just a bad day in the world of a stay at home mother of three.  Like my good friend says " I'm just living the dream". Some days it feels like a dream, others I make a blog post about my feelings and make everyone concerned about my well being. Thanks for the thought and comments, they really helped!

Haven't Cared..

Lately I haven't cared much.
I haven't cared about the laundry
haven't cared about eating right
haven't cared about exercising
haven't cared to lose the baby weight
haven't cared about the ring around toilet
haven't cared about making my bed with my cute bedding
haven't cared about organizing my kiddos toys
haven't cared about the up coming holidays that I need to plan for
haven't cared about what outfit Tess or Seth choose to wear that day
haven't cared about the fact that as soon as I wake up in the morning all  I can think about is how and when I can get a nap in
haven't cared about MONEY, I'm sick and tired of caring about it
haven't cared that I haven't wrote one stinkin thing in Scotty's baby book
haven't cared that I have not done a plaster mold of Scotty's hand... which I have done with my other kiddos
haven't cared about cleaning out the dang hamster's cage.. which is starting to make my son's room stink
haven't cared if Tess is getting to the Halloween candy... again!
haven't cared to volunteer in Seth class much this year
haven't cared to take my kiddos to get flu shots
haven't cared much about my calling in church
To say the least... I think I'm in a little funk..... This is not me. I am usually running circles around my life, on top of everything. I want to care about the little things again. I'm just so tired, always tired. I want to care, how to I get there????

My Cup Runneth Over

 I am so in love with the way these pictures turned out. I just can't get enough of them. This very talented lady is the master mind behind these amazing photos, well I guess Spencer and I had a little to do with it too!

                                        My Beautiful Daughter! Seriously, could she be any prettier?

 My Sweet Adorable Baby Boy.... MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmm he makes me melt!!

 GQ is been knocking down our door. He is getting so big, I can hardly stand it. Handsome, handsome boy!!
Seth loves being a big brother, and Scotty just adores Seth. I can't wait to see these two grow up together. I sure love my kiddos....

Halloween Happenings!

 I just love Halloween. For me it means the dreaded heat of the AZ sun is coming to an end. Also I love experiencing holidays as a child once again. I love to see the looks on my kiddos faces as we start our own traditions as a family and enjoy one anothers company. Isn't that what holidays are for? Well the other night I got the experience of carving pumpkins BY MYSELF with three of the cutest kids on the block. I don't think I will be doing that again. Poor Daddy was working late and their wasn't really any other time to do it. So being the crazy mom that I am I decided to tackle this fun project by myself. Much to my surprise both of my kiddos who are anti-germ, and don't like to touch gross stuff , dug right in to the pumpkins. I was soooo proud.
 Scotty even got in on the fun. We picked this pumpkin for him because we thought it kinda looked like him with his bald head.
 The next day we decided to take a trip to the ASU football game with Daddy. The kids LOVED IT. Throughout the years the kids have tried to go to these games but haven't lasted past the loud fireworks in the beginning of the game. This time they got into the Devil's spirit and were proud to call them self ASU's smallest #1 fans with face painting and full on ASU gear. Tess checking out the game.
 My cute little Devil fan. He had a blast and even knew to shake Daddy's keys in the air during a kick pff.
 Spencer was in heaven with his ASU family in tow. It was a great day to go. ASU beat the Washington State Cougars 42 to zip, the weather was so nice, and it wasn't very crowded. I might even consider going to another game, even though I never know what is going on in football games.
Then it was off to the ward party with little Mario and big brother Luigi
and the beautiful Butterfly. (who was suppose to be the little mermaid but decided to be a butterfly instead) even though Daddy surprised her one day with an expensive Disney store costume. Dang Independence!
 Little Mario found his button on his costume and sucked on it until he feel asleep
 I love these kids!
 Butterfly had a very hard time driving to and from the different festivities.
We even got to trick or treat with Thing 1 and Thing 2!! Thing 1 and little Miss Butterfly have a relationship. She calls him her Boyfriend. poor kid. Happy Halloween!!
