Nothing much

It has been kind of quiet around here, nothing to exciting to report. We sold our boat on Saturday....Yeah! It only took 20 days or so to sell it and Mario is on the rampage to buy another one. Mario has been in pain all weekend, he fell a few weeks ago and finally went to the doctor to find out that he broke his tail bone....Poor baby. He will be all healed up in about 6 weeks. All the boys are doing well and being little angles. Attitudes are improving. Blessed...

Sunny Day!

Today was such a beautiful day, after bible study Daegon and I went to meet Mario for McDonalds then we came home and played outside. It is so warm and spring like, I can't wait for Easter. Daegon was posing for the camera; he is really getting the hang of this…me trying to be a photographer. He is so funny. It is a shame that Daxton and Dawson have to go to school during the day. I guess someone has to go to college to take care of me when I am old and gray.

Dawson and Daegon playing at the park while Daxton is at baseball practice. Dawson is such a good brother...

Baseball practice.

Daxton at Baseball practice. There are only 9 players on the team, so I think that everyone will get a chance to play...LOL. As it looks right now Daxton is going to play short stop, but Mario is going to work with him as pitcher.

Busy Busy

Yesterday was a day of accomplishments. I have not been sleeping very well lately, up late hours, rising early; there has been a lot on my mind. I had to get up at 6:30 A.M. and take Daxton to the doctor. It was time for his 12 year old shots. Yeah! He has always been freaked out about getting shots. He usually makes a very big deal about it, screaming, crying, kicking…I always have to have nurses to help me hold him down while he gets his shots. I told him that it he tenses up his muscles will tense and the needle will not be able to get through them as easily, so if he relaxes then it will not be as painful. I also told him to be strong and show his 2 year old brother that it is not that bad. I was so proud of him, he went in sat down and even though the nurse brought in 4 needles he didn’t even flinch. Finally, he is growing up and realizing that it is inevitable, you must get shots no matter how old you are.

I dropped him off at school, came home and studied a little bit before going to take this test for a job that I am trying to get. I know I did well I just don’t know whether they will pick me or not., I am praying that they do but you never know.

Came home for about an hour, ate something, fixed dinner, and then headed back to Jackson for another appointment with Daxton. We talked to the doctor, and then went to Wal-Mart and back home again. Getting the kids ready for bed, fed the puppies, and then off to the computer to try and learn how to do pivot tables. It is something that I don’t know how to do but I am adamant about learning. I finally fell asleep around 10:30P.M…exhausted.

Today is a more relaxed day. I am still learning how to do pivot charts, while juggling the laundry, house cleaning, and Daegon. I love chaos and keeping busy is the only thing that keeps me from going crazy.

What a blessed life I live.

I have the Baby Blues...

It has been a stressful and blissful day. I have been reminiscing through all of Daegon's baby stuff and getting it ready to go to my sisters tomorrow for the time being. Although, I want another child and any day now I will get pregnant, I am more than happy to let Laura use my stuff. I have everything that a child could possible need or want packed up, and she doesn't have to buy a thing but diapers and wipes. I have all kinds of soaps and lotions that I am sending, I am even sending all the pre-baby stuff. I myself can't wait to get pregnant again, but it looks like it will be a while, so I hope that my sister takes advantage of everything that I am loaning her. I know that she is reading this and thinking....Well duh! But I really want her to use it and not have to buy a lot of stuff that is not necessary. Hopefully she will have a boy and then she will not ever have to buy any clothes unless she wants too. I dress my kids quite will I think. She is about 5 weeks along right now and we are trying to plan way ahead of ourselves. I like to be prepared and have everyone around my prepared.
On another note Mario is leaving for 5 days tomorrow. I hate it when he leaves me and I have to deal with everything by myself, especially right now when I am trying to start a new job and I am not quite read too. I have a job interview Tuesday afternoon and I have to take a test for another job Tuesday morning. I will have to juggle all of my children. Oh and not to mention that Daxton has football and baseball practice. Dawson has baseball practice and no one has even told me when it will be. So next week is really going to show how good I really am. Hopefully Mario will get home safe but swift. Super we go.

Small thought today...

It has been one busy day. The time change has put me in a bad lag...It is so weird. This morning Daxton hadn't been at school for 2 hours and I got a call from the school asking me to pick him up. He was slightly sick, so fearing that he had strep I made the appointment and had my hubby take him. Meanwhile I had to run Dawson to the dentist for a filling. Now, Dawson usually does really well but he talked to Daxton before hand and Daxton filled his head with fear. We got there and he cried for a few minutes, I told him that he would get the wonderful, wonderful gas and he wouldn't feel a thing. Well low and behold mom is always right. He didn't even know when they had stuck him with the needle. In no time we were done and on our way to McDonald's. I am so glad that Dawson is strong and reasonable, he listens to my words and trusts me. What a big boy he is!

Great Sunday!

Another great Sunday, it is warm outside and the puppies have opened their eyes. Yeah they can they will be walking all over the place and causing all kinds of trouble. I can already see the damage that they are going to create.
We had a awesome day at church today, the message was about trials that everyone, even Christians will face to make them (us) better Christians, more mature, and more faithful. Today's message really hit home with what my little sis is going through. With a child on the way and being sick beyond belief, (yes I remember being sick all day too) she is still in school and having to work while all of this is going on. These trials that are going to be put upon her will make her a stronger and more mature person. I just hope that it helps her become a better Christian.

It is true, you do fall asleep when you are tired. I found Daegon on the floor in my room asleep. He must have been really tired...Poor thing.

Final basketball game.

Saturday was Dax and Dawson's last upward basketball game. Finally, when I figured out how to use the camera was I able to take some pictures. I have not cropped them or anything so they will be a little messy. But I am so glad that my boys had a great season and they went undefeated. Basketball season is over and it is on to baseball season....oh the nachoes and ho dogs we will days sitting in out fold up chairs. I can't wait. Today Dawson has baseball tryouts.

My sisters new arrival.

I called my sister Laura and she told me some of the best news I have heard in a long time. God is so great, he has blessed her with a child due on Oct 25, 2009. I am so happy for her, though she is not ready for a child I feel that she will be OK. She has a lot of family and we are all going to support her during this trying time in her life.
Jerimiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you", delclares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Daxton brought something to my attention. Just a small little thing, but he said that ever since we moved to Tennessee we have been listening to strictly country music. Now I find this weird because our taste in music ventures to all realms, but in Hillbilly Hell we are restricted to country. Recently I have found that Praise music is soothing to my sole and nice to listen to, so I have made it part of my routine while chauffeuring my kids around. Sometimes the music is so emotional...when did I become this emotional person...crying every time a song comes on. Anymore all that is required for a good cry is something that talks about kids growing up and moving away. Kids moving away seems like something that is so close now that I dread the day my oldest moves away to college. I can't believe that he is 12 and college seems so close now that I know they are going to have to drag me kicking and screaming from his dorm room. Me being the college for life kind of person I might have to join him and live there myself. I hope they allow married with kids in their dorms. I know I will just buy a house and move there so he can live at home with me...That is it! I guess for now I will cherish our time together in hopes that he will not want to go, but will ask us to move with him.

These Pictures were taken June 2002. Daxton was 5 and Dawson just turned 3.


This morning after I dropped my 2 oldest angel's off at school, Daegon and I came back to the house and played with the puppies. They are just the cutest and Daegon laughs at them, because it tickles when they crawl on him. The puppies are a week and a half old now. I can't wait till they are 6 weeks so we can sell them. The are cute but they will soon become pests.
