What A Merry Christmas?

Well even though we are going through some tough times right now and even though someone that once loved me was hurtful again today, we have managed to have a good Christmas. For once in my life I feel like I was not trying to have the catalog Christmas and it feels good for a change.
The Babies got good gifts and this is a first in many years. It felt really good to be able to give them things that they wanted rather than just things that they needed.

I went to the movies with my BFF , which in turn happens to be Baby Girl's BFF and one day possibly a spouse (the BFF's brother that is)

And the only sound that can be heard in my house today is the TV blaring the sounds from a gift from Santa....a wii

I know we are behind times a little but they are having so much fun, we have not had a gaming system in this house in many years.

I now have a little more leverage on getting chores done.

Hey you kids want to play rock band?

Well then get your chores done first!

Could Christmas be any better?

Well I am sure that it can, matter of fact I know it could.

But guess what, I don't really care because right now I think that my kids are happy and I am happy just to be living and breathing and listening to those annoying songs on rock band over and over and over.

Thank you to all my friends and family that continue to pray for us. I love you and you mean a lot to me.

I hope that you too are having a very Merry Christmas and I think I might go see if I am rock band material.

Why are changes so hard for most people?

I usually go with the flow and have taught the same to my babies.

But for some reason I am in a major mind battle with changes that are happening to our family.

One moment I think I am ready for change and then the next moment I not sure of change.

I really think that it is the future that I am scared of.

I am one of those people that take a while to make a decision because I am terrified of making a wrong decision.

God knows I am not perfect and that I make mistakes all the time but these decisions not only effect me but my babies.

I really don't have a voice in this change so it does make it a little bit easier for my battle.

I want to thank everyone for their prayers they really have helped.

At one point all I wanted to do was crawl in bed and not wake up for a while.

Now though I am feeling stronger.

Not quite in the Christmas spirit that I would like to be in but at least I don't want to sleep all the time.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers as our changes have not yet occurred and are going to be long in the process.

But I think I see a light at the end of my tunnel.

I am even thinking of baking today, too bad my stomach does not feel like eating it.

There are way worse things out there then what I am dealing with.

I am a woman and I am strong!

I am a mother and that makes me even stronger!

Happy Cold As Heck Monday!

Lots And Lots Of Breathing Moments

I hope to be writing again soon but for now I am going to take a unknowable amount of time off from writing to try to get some family issues resolved.

Please pray for me and my children as we will be thankful for each and every prayer!

Happy Thursday!

Comic Relief Tour 2008

We went out to eat at a pizza buffet at the local pizza mill and for some reason Papa sat down at this little table that was not big enough for the five of us so the two older girls had to sit at the table next to us!

Ahh the little things that will drive you crazy!

My older babies were doing a lot of talking and laughing that I could not hear what they were saying and that really bugs me!

But I was stuck in the booth with Papa as the big rock in my road.

I would take a bite of salad and hear giggle giggle giggle

Momma: What are you two laughing about?

Babies: Nothing!

Giggle giggle giggle

Momma: You are laughing about something and you better not be talking about me!


Then I look over and the girls are sitting at this table right next to a wall, on the other side of the wall is more tables but they are much higher than the ones that the Babies are sitting at. Like these peoples bottoms are where the Babies heads are.

The man on the other side of the table has laid his arm over the top where it is within reach of Not The Baby.

I keep eating my salad and hear giggling that is getting so loud that I turn to tell them to quiet down and what do my eyes see??

Not The Baby is slowly reaching her fork up the unsuspecting pizza consuming mans arm that is on the other side of the wall!!


Not The Baby is in some teenage ignorance , going to have some fun anyway trance.

Momma: I swear Not The Baby if you touch that man with your fork I will , I will, I will take your phone away and answer all your text messages myself as I am impersonating you!

Not The Baby did not respond the trance is too deep.....Brat Baby is busting a gut

Not The Baby has an evil smile on her face and just as she is about to touch the poor mans arm with her fork.......

He moves it!

Thank Heavens

Papa is crying he is laughing so hard, Brat Baby has mascara running down her face from her tears of laughter, Baby Girl is just worried that the boy five tables away might have seen that since he goes to her school and I think she thinks he is cute.

Not The Baby walks away like she has just put on a successful performance.

I on the other hand walked away with sorrow for myself.

Sorrow knowing that one day I will not be there to stop Not The Baby from doing those things that will get her kicked out of restaurant and shopping mega stores and malls of all types and sizes.

Oh you don't think she will get kicked out of restaurants?

Well the record so far is not good.

I recall two separate occasions when Baby Boy was a attitude sporting teen and we went to pull into a restaurant only to be told by him that he was not allowed into that particular establishment!

I just want to know what I have done in my life to deserve this torture....

Would I trade one second of it?

Hell No!

Happy Wednesday and please if you see Not The Baby near forks, please promise me that you will not dangle your extremities near her fork, I can not promise that I will be there to save you!

One Down ....One To Go!

Well Thanksgiving went over quite well if I do say so myself.

We had a great time with Aunt P and Uncle R just like we always do and we ate way too much just like we always do.

Then when we are done eating we older girls go to Aunt P's bedroom and order a movie off of the satellite and I talked them into ordering a scary movie (The Strangers) just like we always do.

I should have apologized for asking for that sick and scary movie....I kept my eyes covered almost the entire movie.

Aunt P and Cousin T and I all went shopping bright and early Friday morning.

My alarm on the phone went off at 3:20am and I was out of the door before 4am and drove 25 minutes to Aunt P's house and then we got in her car for another 30 minute drive to our shopping destination.

I think that I am getting old because shopping with thousands of other people up your butt just doesn't seem all that fun anymore!

I really like just clicking with my mouse what is it that I wish to purchase.

Then I promised to take the kids to the BIG city mall on Saturday.......well that went just fine, we didn't buy anything we just looked around and we talked to Santa and Oh yes I met Billy Sims and took a picture with him. (Papa was oh so jealous that he wasn't there to see him but I guess that is what happens when you always choose to stay home!)

Oh and I peed my pants while I was at the mall and had to go and buy new pants!

See I have this cough that is a killer right now and well you know after giving birth to four kids there is not a lot of control in that area!

We saw the millions of lights at the Bible College and ate Chick- fil- a (my favorite place) and then well the Krispy Kreme light was screaming that it had HOT donuts so for some reason the car took control of itself and drove us right into that parking lot and forced us to buy a dozen!

Then last night Picture Momma and Miss S and myself made the most delicious homemade turkey pot pies you can sink your teeth into and we fed a party of 12 at my house all while listening to Christmas music (another one of my favorite things).

So I would have to rate this holiday a 8 on a scale of 10 (8 because the only thing that would make it better is if my sister could have been here to share it with me......then after about five minutes of togetherness we are ready to kill each other, but oh well).

I am choosing not to remember all the family arguments that we had with Baby Boy while he was here or the fact that Not The Baby got in trouble about five times for saying the word Freakin!

Or that Baby Girl broke our remote because someone would not get to her quickly enough to restart the dvr of a show she was watching or that Brat Baby FREAKED when she came home to four kids playing in her room or that Papa was RUDE at Thanksgiving dinner to can you guess who.......Momma.

No Not this Momma....I will not remember any of that, I am going to just remember all the good times we had together this holiday season.

Man I don't need medication with the ability to forget!

Now if I could just forget that I have to go back to work today!

Happy Post Holiday!
