I got 3 new blogs posted! Im so proud of myself. hahaha. I can get used to this. A little alone time in the evening. :) Every moms gotta have some of that! I waiting for my favorite summer show Burn Notice on USA to come on at 10. Its the only time I get to relax. I also have RAGING hormones right now so my patience is ever so thin these days. I need to eat some popcorn and chill out a bit! Hope everyone is doing well. We will keep praying for Fred. Love you!
Shane tested a few weeks back for his Yellow belt

My little tough guy


Showing some love

He got to break a board with his hand. His favorite part!

I think with Shane being much like Tommy and I, very shy when we were younger, TaeKwonDo is giving him the confidence to be proud of who he is and to stand up for himself. Something I remember all too well not being able to do in those tough middle school years. And its always good to teach kids discipline and respect. He loves the class. We go twice a week and I am sure he wishes it were more.

Shanes First Day of Kindergarten

The men getting ready

Shane waiting patiently for me to stop taking pictures

We live so close that on warm days we can walk

After a long first day he was ready to come home

See I told you!

Okay so its been forever since I posted last. Last week was nutty because my grampa passed away. Its all good though. He was 82, had a great life. We had a good service for him and a military service for him at the veterans cemetary. And we got to spend a lot of time with family. Ofcourse we miss him, but we know he is in heaven with his family now. :)

On a much happier note, we found out recently we are expecting baby #4!! So yeah. Lets just cross our fingers its a boy, for Tommys sanity. 3 girls in a row all 2 years apart. Can you say hello grey hair? haha. We will be expecting this one in May. I look forward to taking the pictures of the belly I missed the first 3 times around, and I love my maternity clothes. This is definitely the last one. I talked him into 2 more now, I have hit my quota. And besides, now we are a nice even number. :P A boy would just round it out, 1 mom, 1 dad, 2 girls and 2 boys. And 2 dogs. haha. We will be happy with whatever God gives us ofcourse. And we definitely can't complain so far. 3 beautiful, happy, healthy children!

Shane just started kindergarten. He likes it. Its definitely an adjustment. He has been home with me for 5 years now! And this is full time school. Plus he is taking TaeKwonDo 2 nights a week, so the little guy is tired by bedtime. But he loves it. He has new friends, he is learning new songs. He was so happy to come home the other day and teach me the new song he learned. "You put your left hand in you put your left hand out...... you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, thats what its all about" To a 5 year old thats a new cool song. haha. Along with the wheels on the bus. He couldnt believe I guessed his gym class activity, when he rotated his hips and asked what am I doing? I said hula hooping. He exclaimed "How did you know that!" Well dear, I wasn't born 5 years ago, hahaha.

Colbi is enjoying being the big cheese at home now. She has replaced Shane as Kaseys Pest. They both love to hug and squish her, and give her toys, and get in her face. They love it. She hates it. She is a very independant little girl. She will give you hugs, and lots of them. On her terms. Ask for a hug, you have a 50/50 shot of getting one or she takes off down the hall and hides. She is advanced in speech for her age which is kinda nice when it comes to asking her to do things, and what she wants. I attribute that to her being around 2 older siblings daily. She's 19 months, listens to "No" very well. Knows what she can and can't touch in the house. Knows "Sit down". And a slew of other words, shoes, socks, milk, juice etc... and even some sentances "What you doing?" "Time to go" and my favorite, when referring to a stinky diaper "Thats disgusting!"

Colbi is thrilled today because we went to Walmart and bought a Hannah Montana sparky shirt, a pair of black sparkly leggings, and a cool blonde wig and microphone, for her Halloween costume. All she keeps saying is she is Hannah Montana, Thank you everybody! I love you! And I have put the cd on repeat. You know its bad when you know the words. haha... We'll just keep that a secret. :)

Tommy and I are doing well. Tommy is big into RC car racing. He has actually gone to several states to race in National Championships. Last one he went to was in CT, and he took a first place trophy. He will be in one of the RC magazines next month. He's been doing that for a few years now, and has a nice collection of trophies and magazines. His goal is to open his own track in the near future. Did you ever think it was that big of a deal? hahaha. His website is if you wanna check it out. I have been busy lately organizing those hidden places in your house. The downstairs, the garage, closets. Its quite the ordeal. I still have a few home improvements to tackly before we list the house again. I need to get my business plan in order first though. I have been doing small time craft shows and selling to just family and friends for about 3 years now. I am moving onto home spa parties now. I need to kick it up a notch so I can eventually meet my end goal, opening my own all natural shop. Its not far from my reach, but I need to have a steady income that I can count on to pay the rent! So that is what I have been doing. I do have a website, which is almost done being redone with my current products, and information. My old, not updated one is I am hoping by the end of next week to have all my labels done, all my pictures done, my catalog done, and my website done. Its a tall order but in this economy its becoming necessary and we have yet to find the money tree.

So thats what I got so far. I will post again in the near future! :) Love you all.
