Welcome To Our House

Welcome to our house. This is what you will find in the light at our front door. This bird does not look real but it is. Emmy and I are so in love with her and the little eggs.

My little old man :)

I know I have gone on picture overload of my kids lately but I like to add them as backups. Here are the rest of Jackson's pictures. I love my kiddos!!! I would love some input on what ones you like best. I cant decide what one to blow up!?!?

It's Not The End Of The World If...

I have learned the older and wiser I get:) It is not the end of the world if every now and then...

your kids don't go to bed on time

you don't brush your teeth or get showered until 2:00 PM

your kids watch an extra show

you sleep in a little

your kids figure a fight out all by themselves

you have some cookie dough at midnight

your daughters hair looks like a monster

your socks don't match

your kids pick out non matching clothes

you haven't cleaned the bathroom in a week

your kids miss a nap

you don't wear makeup

your house does not get dusted

your kids have a temper tantrum

your fridge is empty

you buy your kids something for no reason at all

your kids forget to brush their teeth ( once)

your daughter wants to wear a princess dress instead of real clothes

your husband goes to work without an ironed shirt

you don't want to leave your house

you play pretend instead of clean

8 months ago none of these things would have happened to me (except the not getting dressed part :) ) being a mother of 2 has taught me to relax. Sometimes things don't get done other times they do.Teach your kids to live, laugh and love! Be the best you. Take a little time out of your day and realize what is really important. Love your life for what it is and not what your want it to be. Live, laugh ,love and RELAX life is too short to stress about the little things.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers day!!! I don't know what my life would be like without my 2 adorable kids! Yesterday was a day for me to reflect on all the joy they bring into my life!!! I love being a mother!
Matt got me an awesome family picture that I have not had the time or the money to buy. It is the one with all of us on the bed and will be going over our bed ( so cute). Emmy got me an adorable heart necklace that she wore all yesterday :) and Jackson got me some VERY pink lip gloss in case I am feeling like a wild woman. I love my little family so very much!

Yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life. Emmy had been peeing frequently for more then 3 days and I checked her blood sugar. It was suppose to be under 100 and was 155! She had already been to the doctor and her UTI test came back negative. My world came crashing down. The thought of my daughter having diabetes crushed me. The thought of my daughter having to give herself shots and monitoring things so closely and such a young age was too much for me to think about. Matt has diabetes so we know everything it entails.

The power of prayer and the temple are amazing. I have never prayed as much as I did yesterday. While Matt and I were in the temple we both had a calm feeling come over us. As stressed and sad as I was when I was at the temple I was calm. I somehow knew no matter what happened we would make it through it. Matt also gave Emmy a blessing. The spirit was so strong! There is nothing more amazing then hearing your husband give your child a blessing and it was such a great learning experience for Emmy. I am so grateful for my faith and love. I know that our Heavenly Father hears me and answers my prayers.

I am so grateful for my children. They have their days where I want to scream but they are so amazing. I cant get over what a strong person Emmy is! She is truly amazing. There is nothing like the love you have for your children. Every smile or kiss I get my heart melts. I am so grateful I am able to stay home with our family and witness them growing up everyday. I am also grateful for my husband. He never panics and is always there to try and calm me when I need it. We make a good team!

Life is full of surprises sometimes good and sometimes bad. We have had our share of bad surprises and am sure more will come but no matter what I have my family and my faith. I have TRULY learned how strong of a tool prayer and going to the temple can be. I am so grateful for my life, my husband, my children and my faith!!!
