caleb is so silly...

so here i am listening to the cure and its the catchy just like heaven song so i am of course singing it out loud and little Caleb is on my lap just staring up at me and smiling and doing his silly baby laugh at me it was so cute!! hes is just the sweetest little boy around we really never get tired of talking and smiling and just staring at him he really is one of the most pampered baby's around with everyone always wanting to hold him and making sure he is clean and he gets to sleep with his mommy and daddy and eat whenever he wants well i guess scratch that yesterday we went to Wendy's and i was driving and he was very mad wanting to eat and Cheyenne's knuckle was not doing the job but thankfully that whole deal was only about 5 minutes and then he got to drink his yummy warm milk ;) well i need to get some stuff done around here so here's some cute pictures to keep you entertained while i am away lol ;)

my daybook for 12/15/08

FOR TODAY Monday, December 15, 2008

Outside my window A nice cloudy cool winter day

I am thinking that i really need to quit stalling and start cleaning this house!!

I am thankful for my wonderful husband and 5 beautiful children!!

From the learning rooms working hard with cody on his letters and reading with Cheyenne

From the kitchen not much going on in there today we are gonna have leftovers tonight ;)

I am wearing a new dark brown, light brown and white shirt from sears and also a new pair of jeans that fit and boy thats a great feeling ( i won a sears gift card online so i got a few things)

I am creating noting right now i am still trying to motivate myself to start the pillowcase dresses thou hopefully soon that will happen!!

I am going to get the kids from school soon

I am reading noting at the moment but i am gonna look on my bookshelf soon and pick something out

I am hoping when chad gets home we get motivated and get this house decluttered

I am hearing kk quietly playing with her animal toys

Around the house is very Christmas- y (is that a word lol)

One of my favorite things a good movie with a big bowl of popcorn and a caffeine free coke lol

A few plans for the rest of the week:declutter, declutter, declutter and maybe a little baking ;)

Here is picture thought I am sharing... me and my baby boy ;)

to see other daybooks please check out the simple womens daybook

wow.. has it really been a week???

wow i really can't believe its been a week since my last post i guess i was a little busy reading and cleaning and everything else!! so whats been going one this past week lets see i finished all 4 of the twilight books and they were really good and it got me back into reading something i have not done in years so that's cool cause i have lots of books that i need to read!! Cody went on stage with his class at the base Christmas party they had Santa there and then some very un modestly dressed elves i was a little shocked how short there skirts were i mean you could pretty much see there butt cheeks and that's not cool! but anyways Cody did great singing his song they sung 2 songs jingle bell rock and we wish you a merry Christmas and he has been singing the we wish you a merry Christmas song over and over and over and over again since the party lol!! we also went to a Christmas party at the mosh (a kids museum) it was chads command kids party and i have to say it was pretty lame but i did like that we got to go to the museum for free that was cool! and kyle and Kaylee both won 15 dollar gift cards from walmart! we did not go to chads command adult party thou cause for one they are lame and for 2 there is no way i am gonna leave my kids with there babysitters they had at the hotel in a way i do think it would have been cool to go cause they did some great giveaways but at the same time who cares cause most the people there are not people i care to spend a Friday night with hahaha so instead me and chad stayed up and watched the new batman movie and the kids watched Mary Poppins so we had a great night ;) well i guess thats about all we did this last week and this week we will be decluttering big time cause i am feeling so cramped in this house so i am gonna be going thru clothes and toys and blankets so watch out on freecycle or if you think you may want toys or blankets let me know i am not sure what clothes i am getting rid of yet but probably women's and girls (6-7) well i am gonna go i have so much to do this place is a mess later guys!

being lazy!

so i really should be cleaning right now cause the time is just right Caleb is sleeping and Cody and kk are playing quietly together in the toy room but no here i am blogging and before this i was entering giveaways issues i tell you!! so i was wondering would it be totally selfish of me to go and see the movie twilight and take Caleb with me and then have chad at the same time take the 4 other kids to see a kids movie??? i mean i would love to go with him but its not a kids movie and i really want to see it!! but anyways i am gonna get off my lazy butt and get a little cleaning done cause i know once the ups man gets here with my books i will be getting noting done! later guys!

Thursday, November 13


well i have a feeling the rest of this week and probably next week is gonna be long and uncool!! chad is sick right now he came home Tuesday sick with i am not sure what i am really thinking the flu cause hes really tired and sore and has a fever etc etc and yesterday i noticed kk and Caleb were acting very fussy and now kk has thrown up twice today and just don't not look like she feels well and Caleb has a stuffy nose and he is very upset by it and he gets even more mad when i clean it with that lovely snot sucker (lol) but hopefully the kids will not get it to bad as soon as chad gets home this afternoon i am gonna make a quick stop to the store and get a some Gatorade and a few cases of water and maybe some quick and easy food cause i think cooking on top of all this would be a little to hard and time consuming right now!

other then that we have not really been up to much just the regular dailys i have a new goal everyday and thats to clean the kitchen and living room first thing in the morning and then to do at least 2 loads of clothes from start to finish my biggest problem is the finish i had like 5 loads of clothes on my couch and that was my turning point lol so far i am doing pretty good and have been putting stuff right away or having Cheyenne if shes home from school when i do the laundry also next week i am gonna start doing get the weight off blog post and post what i have eaten and is i exercised at the end of everyday and hopefully i can get rid of this "momma belly" ;) if ya wanna join in please do as it would probably be extra motivation!! well until next time later guys!

Wednesday, November 12

our day...

well we kinda changed our mind about moving well at least for now we are still gonna move but we are gonna wait until after the holidays cause it would be way to stressful trying to move right now so in about 2 or 3 months we are soooo gonna find a house to rent around here and i am cool with that it will be so nice to have carpet and a fenced yard again the only 2 things i really care about when it comes to finding a house to rent well i also care about the neighborhood but who doesn't!! i am a little upset this week as i got an email saying they were probably shutting finegan down (the kids school) and if thats the case they will go to a school i am not sure i want them to go to they are suppose to make some kinda announcement on the 21st we will see i guess here's to hoping it stays open cause its gonna suck if not!! other them that there is really not much going on we have been pretty lazy today i am hoping chad gets here soon cause he should really be home sleeping cause he is sick ;( but thats the navy for ya grrr!! well thats all i got i am gonna do a list in a few minutes thou ;)
