So just had to share... My little Austin started trying to blow raspberries yesterday. This has to be one of the cutest things I have EVER seen. I do not have a pic or video of it yet.. but I am going to work on that.

My little Brett Brett made me feel so um LARGE the other night. I was getting ready to lay down beside Brett to read him his bedtime story. And he tells me that I don't need to lay down in his bed because the bed it little and I am to big and I might break it. Gotta love how kids will say just what is on their little minds. As I am getting ready to go down stairs I am kissing those sweet little cheeks and I tell him that "I love you all the way to the moon" and his reply "I love you all the way to the moon to... but get up." Gotta Love it!!!

Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to the pumpkin patch with our good friends Angie and Aaron. We had fun but boy there is a story which I will share with you all. First of all.. I forgot the stroller!!!!! All parents will understand why this is a bad thing. I carried the 21lb baby around ALL DAY LONG! He was great but boy he ain't light!! Anyway we walk up to the festival and go to get some food since we are all starving. Well, the place we went to only accepted cash or check. I didn't have cash so i wrote a check while holding Austin. The lady at the counter was so nice.. She understood that I wasn't going to be able to get my tray to the table so she asked her son who was maybe 10 to help me out which he so graciously did. Angie and Aaron had went ahead to grab us a picnic table since this place was VERY busy. Well, let me just say that Butler's Orchard will put picnic tables ANYWHERE... even on the side of a hill!!! Yes we were sitting on the slope.There were some people we were sharing the table with and they were sitting on the upper part of the sloped table. The guy sitting beside me had a big opened bottle of pepsi. The table was bumped and down came the pepsi, spilling onto my pumkin pie. He apologized but I knew it was totally an accident. I mean come on we are on a damn hill!!! Austin is sitting in my lap at this time and is playing int he ketchup lol and Brett is throwing a fit. And the bees....oh the bees LOVED us!!! Maybe cause we are so sweet... (I'm just throwing that possibility out there).But you know what I ate that damn pie and it was good! A little carbonated but good. LOL! So after we ate we let the kids jump in the hay and bounce houses then we let them go down this very cool slide which I also went down and LOVED! That was sooo much fun! We then went to pick our pumpkins. Angie and Aaron went to the other side of the patch because they were in search of smaller pumpkins but I found a couple of good ones in the front so we just stayed put. Well, Brett decided he needed to pee and was VERY loud about it. I told him he would just have to hold it and once we had paid for our pumpkins then we could find a place. So he calmed down... then came the business of getting in line with the two big pumpkins. Now keep in mind that I have a camera around my neck ( gotta get those pics), Austin on my hip and two pumpkins to carry. Needless to say i didnt' carry them...I kicked them all the way to the line until Angie and Aaron caught back up with us and were able to help.As I am standing in line Austin starts fussing and gets louder and louder. And we are still kicking the pumpkins along. I then feel something warm on my arm and look down to see that Austin has puked on me. GREAT!!!! When it is our turn to check out the guy gave me the total and mentioned that he needed to see my license if I was writing a check and the look i gave him must have been a look of death cause he said you know what don't worry about it and then he only charged me $2.75 for both pumpkins. I asked him twice how much they were and both times he said that. We then loaded up in the car and drove home. Now Brett rode with Angie and Aaron in her car. And apparently Brett failed to mention to angie, as did I, (cause i forgot) that he had to pee. Well, they beat me to the house and by that point he couldn't hold it and peed on Angie. SO SORRY!!! If you are like me you are laughing about all of this. While it was stressful at the time,now looking back, it is pretty funny. And the kids had a good time and that is what is most important. Here are some pics of our day! Happy FALL!

Happy Birthday Brett!

In just a little bit it will be October 13, 2010. Four years ago from this day John and I became parents for the first time. The pregnancy was definitely a rough one but we got through it and thankfully you weren't born early like the doctors feared. You were born at 9:16PM on a Friday night. I never will forget the first time I saw that sweet angel face. There aren't words for how amazing that felt. It seems like the past four years have flown by so fast! Life has a way of doing that I guess. Brett is such a wonderful, sweet, bright, and loving child. I feel so blessed to be his mom. Happy Birthday my Brett Brett! Mommy and Daddy and Austin love you so very
much!!! xoxoxoxo

Busy Busy Busy

Wow, we are some busy folks! I have been looking at my planner this morning thinking how in the world are we going to get all of this done? LOL we are getting ready for a big move to Hawaii for 3 years!! So we all have doctors appointments out the ying yang and there is sooooo much to sort through before the movers arrive in 4 weeks!! I am excited about our move but I am nervous a little bit. This will be a big move so far away. I think the boys will love it though and I am sure we will all have a good time!! The island is supposed to be beautiful!

We have been here for 3 years now and soooo much has happened in that time. We have moved twice and absolutely love the house we are in now. Our neighbors at our old house turned out to be some of the best friends that we have. I think of Deb as my sister and love her kids to death. Oh and I like Larry too. LOL!!! Deb actually stayed at the hospital with me all night along with our family while we were waitng for John Austin's arrival. They are some great people. And even though we wont be neighbors anymore, they are in my heart. I know we will see each other again. :)

That is another thing that happened here. We added another member to our family. John Austin is such an angel and a great addition to our little family! We are so blessed with happy healthy boys.

Brett was just a little toddler when we first moved here and now he is in school. He will be 4 tomorrow. So alot has changed since we first moved here. And I am sure alot more will change in the next 3 years as well! I look forward to what is to come.

My turn!

About a week ago I posted about John's baby food fiasco. Well, Friday it was my turn. I had Austin sitting in his Bumbo(That thing has been a life saver) and was feeding him sweet potatoes. As I went to give him a bite he head butted the spoon and this was the result.

However, I did NOT get any on me or the ceiling!!!

Patience for the win! :)

New Hair

Well, I got tired of the blonde hair and decided to go back to dark. While I tried to go to dark brown I actually got black. I was a little overwhelmed by the color at first but now I love it. Think I will stay dark.
