I’ve been Called every name in the book…

Really..  Stop with the name calling.  It’s starting to hurt.  I have been called everything from blog slacker and blog fluky to blog looser and blog deserter but I’m not a blog quitter.

To Marie whom I miss and don’t have an email address for anymore, I’m here….  I’m so sorry summer has got the best of me…

To Gloria (Whom could pass for my twin sister if I had a better tan) I love your comments and think your the best!

To my Parents who get a small high from seeing their grandkids everyday.  I promise to not let you down again.  Stop the hate mail.

To my very best friend that encourages me to blog, tells me how important it is but NEVER reads my blog…  I love you despite that!

To all my devoted readers….  I can feel the evil stares and have received the death threats.  I’m here and have not forgotten about you.  I miss you.  I miss your comments and emails and phone calls telling me how absurd my posts are and that I should not tell people the things I tell!  I miss all that.  I miss blogging.

And to my loving meaty husband.  I so thank you for your pesky hints that even you like to read my blog.  How sweet but really…  You really read?  I should explain.  Those posts that sounded like I was complaining about you….  Not me.  Not me at all.  Not sure who wrote those things!

So I leave you all with this.  Until my life resembles normal again (HA) I’ll be posting as often as I can and hopefully once a day again very soon.  Until then, I have posted about 20 posts catching you up on all that I remember from July. 

Read and enjoy!  But first enjoy my girls:

Family Time

This past Monday was my sister in laws 7th brain surgery.   She’s amazingly strong!  The night before her surgery we went to see her and when we found out she requested to go eat at a certain restaurant we have never been to…  What do we do?  We invite ourselves and then begged to go along….  They gave in and we went.  We had a blast!  Glad we had that time together…

Jordan helping Autumn eat with chopsticks….


A family picture..  I may have been at someone elses table and in between hungrey people and their food to get this shot.  I know its not great and it was just taken with my phone but I’m glad I got it…  It was worth the snickering and dirty looks.


Surgery went well and she’s at home already…  Pretty sure if I had brain surgery, I’d be out for months.

It has Begun

Cheer Practice has officially started and will officially be on my nerves until the end of football season.  The Moms are a little much and a few of the coaches are over the top but I’m sure it will be just great.


I should work on the tone of which I type.  Hateful.

Aubrey's 2 coaches are great and I look forward to the many many many practices and games and competitions that I will be attending for the next few months.  Yeah!  Again with that tone.

I should stop.

Last week was Vacation Bible School.  The girls loved it!  It was Cowboy/Ranch themed so Sunday night was called the showdeo.  We got to watch the week in pictures on the slideshow then outside to ride the longhorn and get faces painted.  Yes I said ride a longhorn…  Doesn't that happen at every church?


Annsley decided that the horns and ‘big cow’ were just not for her to ride on.  You just don’t ride cows in her world.  Or mine.

I’m Only Happy When it Rains

I love when it rains.   Love the sound on my tin roof, the smell and the view.  I open my windows and doors and just watch.  This day the girls were sleeping, the house was picked up and my work was done.  I was in the kitchen baking and the world was peaceful.  Then it stopped, the girls woke up and reality came back.  Wet smelly dogs, mud and wet floors.  Ahh..  there was that moment though.

A post from Annsley!




















Love Annsley!


She’s getting so big… The other day I found that she had loaded the dishwasher.  Strange to take a picture of?  Yes.  But this way I will never forget!

I love her.

Reasons phones should have age limits

I got a new phone for Mothers day.  (More like Joshua slammed my phone off the floor and said were getting you a new phone…get in the car.)  Me and my old timey devices are abused here.

Anyway.  I ended up being talked into the most cliché new fad techy phone.  Turns out I love it!  I have tones of games/movies for the girls and it can keep them busy at appointments, in the car or even in the comfort of our own home where there is at least 1 million dollars worth of toys.

But… They learned how to use the camera.  On any given day, I end up with at least 30-50 new pictures on my phone.  I would like to share a few.  Most of these I don’t know where, when or who took them but they deserve for you to see them.

Here is a few I took that I am proud of

What do you do when all three of your girls are sick?  Take them ALL in to the pediatrician…  They were sick on and off for a few day all with similar but different symptoms but when I noticed Annsley was covered in small red spots and the other girls started getting them, they had to go…


They didn’t act sick, look sick or feel sick but diagnoses was:  Strep Throat.  What do you do with sick, contagious and hungry girls….  Ask for a corner table at the restaurant of their choice.

Glad to report..  All are healthy and well now.  Very much dislike when my girls are sick but I love all the times they need me to hold them.

Shorty McBasketball Player

My oldest baby went to basket ball camp and loved it.  It may be due to the fact that it’s inside and air-conditioned but it may be the fact the she just really likes the sport.  It may be terrible to admit but I was really hoping for a softball player.  She did so good (for the shortest one there) and I was so proud. (Also as the shortest Mom there)  It’s cool!

Autumn’s Friend Cassie that went to camp with Autumn!  We love Cassie here…  She fits right in but for some reason wont leave her perfectly normal family to come live with us…  Something must be wrong with her….


Getting her award!


After a long week of basketball, the girls got to decorate their own cupcakes.  To say they had some sprinkles would be an understatement….
