People that we love

So I decided to talk to Hunter about how Christmas Time was also a time to think about the people we love. This is an "actual" transcript.

A) Hunter - Christmas time is a time to also think about the people we love.


A) I love daddy.

H) I love grandma. (of course)

A) I love Hunter.

H) I love Dane.

A) I love Dane too.

H) I love Captain Jack Sparrow (wth???)

A) I love Grandma.

H) I love that lamp. (The broken one at that.)

A) I love Papa.

H) I love my lips.

A: I love all of my cousins.

H) I love my suits.

A) Your what?

H) My suits, you know - Like batman and superman??? (DUH MA!)

This is where I ended this oh, so important conversation. I figured if I didn't rank above the broken lamp all hope was lost :)

My 3 Sons

Well, we found out last week that we are having our 3rd son and decided to keep it a secret (to most anyway) until Christmas. It was so exciting telling everyone that, once again, a boy is in the cards. Jamie and I are super happy and can't wait to have our mini-football team. It's kinda funny though watching/listening to people's responses when we tell them it's another boy because they have no idea what to say to me. I mean, of course, a daughter would have been awesome - but the gift of a child is so beyond that, how can I not be excited! A girl wasn't in the cards for us and that's ok - this baby will just have to wear dresses!!! lmao!

And for those of you with the "burning question, "Are you going to try for a girl?" Umm, here's the burning answer - HELL NO! We are already going to be outnumbered and well, it could be another boy!!! ;)

We don't have any names picked out yet and more than likely we will not tell anyone until he is here anyway, just like we did with Dane. So stay tuned for more fun (and maybe too graphic) pregnancy details!!!!

What the crap?

How come my 2 year old can count as high as my 4 year old? Trust me - Jamie, I and my mom put some hours in on Hunter to get him to count to ten and Dane does it like it is cake... That boy is too smart for his own good.

Dane Stories
1. My mom was singing "...Santa Claus is coming to town...." and Dane said "NO! Santa is at the mall."

2. I was driving yesterday and I was stopped at a red light and it turned green and Dane said "GREEN MEANS GO MAMA!" WTH - he HAS never identified green before!

3. The boys both got haircuts on Friday - but Dane has a big bald spot in the back where he decided to jerk while the guy was cutting his hair.

4. I heard my garbage disposal come on and an awful noise so I ran the 10 steps to the kitchen and I found Dane on top of the kitchen counter, with one of my sharp knives upside down, spinning in the garbage disposal. He CAN NOT stay out of stuff.

I am sure I could go on and on with Dane stories -but that is good for now :)

Day of Memory

My Uncle Cliff died 2 years ago today - somedays it still seems like yesterday... I don't think that in life that he realized how much he truly meant to everyone - but I know he sees it now.

We all miss you Uncle Cliff and the suddeness of your passing has still left many of us with a sadness in our hearts.

By Cinthia G. Kelley

My grief is like a river,
I have to let it flow,
but I myself determine
just where the banks will go.

Some days the current takes me
in waves of guilt and pain,
but there are always quiet pools
where I can rest again.

I crash on rocks of anger;
my faith seems faint indeed,
but there are other swimmers
who know that what I need

Are loving hands to hold me
when the waters are too swift,
and someone kind to listen
when I just seem to drift.

Grief's river is a process
of relinquishing the past.
By swimming in hope's channels,
I'll reach the shore at last.

Fa, la, la, la, la - - -

I can't believe Christmas is in 12 days! Who is going to come help me wrap all the presents I have piled up in my basement?? I really need to start wrapping :(

So - I have a question of the day, and feel free to be honest b/c, hey - you can post anonymously.

Do you think that most Christians have respect for others religions? What about other's lack of religion - ex. Athiesm?

I am just curious about this b/c I feel like I know more Christians that are judgemental and pushy about converting athiests than athiests who are judgemental and pushy about converting Christians.....

I think ALL beliefs should be respected - In the words of a Christian "there is only one true judge" yet people constantly judge others on thier beliefs.

Ok - enough religious talk for now - it's making me nauseous ;)

Don't forget to hit reply!!!

Revelations (and some whining) from this past week

1. Do not, I mean do NOT even pretend with finger scissors that you will cut off Dane's manhood. He will not be scared, but instead will spread his legs and laugh.

2. Hunter can be seriously injured (to the point of hysteria) and as soon as his show comes back from commercial he is miraculously healed.

3. Some people will create drama and turmoil at every holiday and the best way to deal with it is to not play their games anymore. (I know, I know - I said it was a revelation, not something I do yet!)

4. Being pregnant sucks.

5. Migraines for 2 days suck.

6. I am almost done xmas shopping and am ECSTATIC about that. Now on to wrapping :(

7. I have an awesome husband and marraige and I love that we work together to make our family the best it can be.

8. Erick is a rockin' dude and I swear I will find you a pregnant, married girl just for your own!

9. Sometimes going to the ob-gyn and getting a pap is BETTER than dealing with 2 bratty kids. (I said sometimes!)

10. My DVR stopped working and I am starting to have a little bit of an anxiety attack over it. I think that may be a sign that I am addicted to TV w/o commercials.

11. My ass is as wide as I am tall. (Ok, well this may not be a new revelation!)

12. My mom is the most caring, giving person I know and I still don't think she has ever sat down to a meal and ate without having to get up up at least once. (If my boys are there - at least 10 times)

13. I am irritated when the boys are napping and I am awake. (as is the case right now)

14. I really like my job but sometimes hate the fact that I feel like I have to tell grown-ups things to do even though they already know it and just slack on it.

15. I am an awesome person and a loyal friend.

I think I will end on that note :)
