I'm a Christian wife and stay-at-home mommy to four beautiful and amazing children. I love all things CREATIVE - card making, digital design, home dec, scrapbooking, sewing - you name it, I dabble in it! I am also an independent consultant for Close To My Heart. Thanks for stopping by and please come again... God bless!
Our season is getting on to an early start this year. We have our Hit-a-Thon Fundraiser this Saturday and our first game on Monday with the Opening Day Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, March 7th. I have 2 of my sons, Nicholas & Joshua playing this season, so I'm more excited than ever! Joshua was signed up to play last season when he was 3, but he wasn't really into being there. He's matured a little more since then, so now he's excited and wants to be there. I'm the team mom for my oldest son's team. My husband's the manager and he's also the VP of our Pinto Division, so we'll be very busy this season! We enjoy watching our sons play. Not to mention, seeing the growth and improvement from one season to the next. It's very rewarding for us.
Like he title says, "Very Productive Wednesday, Horrible Thursday" to say the least. Yesterday, I finally organized my craft closet. Hooray! I can finally get to crafting. It's taken me 6 months to bite the bullet and get it done. I'm so happy that I was able to do it in between the babies naps. Now, I just need to get some paper, stamp and stamp pad storage so it's even more organized.
As for today, my baby boy is a little croupy. He woke up numerous times in the wee hours until I put on his humidifier and he was finally able to sleep comfortably. My husband just left to the ER because he's feeling extremely dehydrated and nauseated. He's having a bad day today. If you could please keep us in your prayers, it would be greatly appreciated!
I just wanted to check in with everyone. It's been a few days since I last posted and thought I'd stop in to say "Hello". I'm so happy because I finally went back to church this past Sunday with my new daughter. I've been wanting to go back for sooooo long, too! I just wanted to wait until my daughter was at least 2 months and well before I took her around a bunch of people. I'm so paranoid when it comes to my babies and risks to their health.
Anyhow, it was a wonderful experience for us...Mia did very well. My boys did well, too! As a matter of fact, Joshua didn't want to leave his Sunday School Class. He wanted to stay and continue with his artwork. Luke cried when I left him in the nursery. As he usually does but I was told that he stopped a minute or two after I left. When I returned to the nursery to feed Mia, Luke was comfy-cozy in Michelle's lap (one of my mom's friends). It makes me really happy that my children love going to church.
On another note, it's rainy this morning and I'm debating if I should reschedule Mia's 2-month wellbaby appointment, or not. I really don't want to take her out in this cold, wet weather. What's a mommy to do?!
It's Saturday night and I'm currently watching CSI Miami on A&E. I just love all of the CSI shows! Anyhow, I'm really enjoying this 3-day weekend at home with my family, getting some chores done and hopefully I'll be able to tackle my craft closet. We shall see... It all depends on my baby girl and how demanding she is going to be. Newborns, don't you just love them?!
My sister and her fiance came over last night with Chocolate Cream and Lemon Meringue Pies. Our baby Luke just loved it...Can you tell?
After pie, my sister bathed Luke while I nursed baby Mia and put her to bed. Then we played some Rock Band, or should I say - tried. I cannot play the guitar to save my life! Give me the mic and I'm good. I love to sing and I can kinda hold my own on the drums. We still had fun, though, so that's all that really matters.
Well, here are some current pics of my babies...
Until next time, have a wonderful weekend...Stay dry!
