Instafriday

Linking up with jeannette again for a fun fill instafriday!


life rearranged





The kids have a way cool dad, he took them to pick out a hamster:) They all sit in a circle and let it run in the ball between the all!!!


 AJ discovered the iPad, and loves the little phonics\animal game. I let him play the other night trying to get him to go to sleep, he ended up playing for 2 hrs laying next to me on the bed! I can't get over how cute his little fingers are on the screen!!
 The boy sleeps with us every night, most the time when Lee is on shift I don't mind having him cuddle with me, this particular night I am pretty sure i ended up with no room on the bed:)

 Yuck weather has been horrible, hot,   and humid and the trips to phoenix seriously are miserable!!!! Especially with leather seats!! ouchie!!
 I am so amazed and sad how fast this pregnancy went by, 35 weeks on monday, and I am pretty sure It'll only be a few weeks (like 2 maybe) after that before Baby B makes his arrival!
 instead of going to phoenix we took a trip up the mountain to beautiful prescott!! 88 degrees and gorgeous!! Ariel and hailee had so chore money they wanted to buy books with and so we headed to the mall only to find barnes and noble had closed, and in its place lunier golf! I despise golf and so daddy took all four kids to play golf while I got to walk around and shop at the  mall!!! sweet!!!!!


Sometimes I forget how gorgeous inside and out this girl is! she has a heart of gold, and Im so blessed God entrusted her to me!
 Daddy daughter enchilada team, our favorite dinner!!!
 What was I thinking scheduling maternity photo shoot in az in july!!!! ugh it was hot 107 right before hailee and I got out of the car to get started!!! But I am so excited to see the pictures!!!
 School shopping for Ariel = so stressful, finally I gave up and sent her momma a picture of the shorts, that ariel thought were to long! Crazy child! I had never been so happy that Hailee wears uniforms to here school, and totally give Nicki props for patience during school clothes shopping with a pre-teen!
 I have been dying for a farmhouse\work bench island for our kitchen I lve the rustic look mixed with modern and after stalking craigslist and thrift stores with no luck, I finally found the perfect one! It had been in the huge shed we just got rid of the entire time!!!! I am so excited to finish it up, along with the rest of the kitchen!!!!
  I have no words these boys own my heart and are so so so adorable!!!

35 weeks...





35 weeks yep I can't believe it!! Time has flown by, Im actually a little sad its almost over. Its our last baby, and well Im a Little sad I will never feel a little baby in me again!! Anyways little Brantlee Scott is definitely growing, we had his last ultrasound a week ago and he weighed 4 lbs 3 oz., he is already almost the same size Adrian was when he was born( 4 lbs 8 ozs) so Im thinking he'll be about 6 lbs when he arrives!!! I haven't decided if I want to go for the elective c-section, or try a vbac? They both have cons and negatives! I however better figure it out soon, because honestly I think he'll be here around 37-38 weeks!!!
Either way I have been nesting like a crazy person, and have a few projects to come back to show you tomorrow!!!!!

Insta friday




life rearranged

I am linking up my weekly phone pictures with jeannett!!!

This week has been long, we have hardly seen Lee, he has been working, working, and more worrking. between the firehouse, and the ambulance crew he has been busy!!

This being hailee's last week in school, and before Lee went back to work for 3 days we decided to take the kids out to box canyon and let them play and lee and I relax a little, how can you not relax out here?? perfectly quiet!!!
Up far to late editing pictures from said trip!!
The little man would not sleep anywhere, but in my arms while i edited pictures! talk about multi-tasking!!!
These two are cousins, but pretty sure the little blondies could pass for brothers!!

Sadiest part of the week, my sister and her family moving to Wyoming, breaks my heart that little quincy won't be around! I love that little man!!! oh and my sister too:)
Happiest part of my week Hailee girl's last day of school!!!!!We will be working on our summer fun list this week!!!
And because he is so cute, and an angel when he sleeps

patience and positive thinking

Lately I have been irritable, not just a little 29 weeks pregnant irritable, ALOT irritable. With my husband, with my kids, with everyone really. The people that get the main part of the craptastic attitude though, are the ones that are by far the most important, least deserving ones. My family!
So while researching the internet I came across an Ebook called Mindset for Moms by Jamie C. Martin. So I went ahead downloaded in ibooks and started reading, thinking I would get a Chapter in and be done with it. I have never been big on reading the "self help books" but by chapter three, I was hooked it made sense, the more I keep reading it made even more sense!
Here's a few of my favorite excerpts:

"The way to live a life of miracles is to expect life to be full of miracles. It's called faith. It's available for the taking."
"What if instead, you believe your vision could work out, that the abundant life was yours for the taking, that by expecting the best not only would you be blessed, but you could also impacted the lives of your family and the world?"
Begin doing what you want now. We have only this moment, sparkling life a star in our hands and melting life a snowflake. Let us use it before its to late.- Marie Beynon Ray
I can't say that I will never yell and scream again, because in reality thats a lie. I don't want to sow anger into my children, I want to sow kindness, gentleness, patience and positive thinking. I can say that I am going to try my best to be patient with them, and remember that they are young and need my guidence as there mommy, and remember how blessed I AM to be given the chance to be their mom!

day 9

Day 9 I am thankful for quiet time, just me with my littlest baby asleep next to me on the couch, and my two others tucked in tight in their beds.. quiet, peaceful, perfect:) ;

30 days of thanks!

Day 7   I am so very thankful for coffee, it helps me stay up far later than I should on the days that Lee is at work, working on various, random craft projects!


Day 8   On those late nights I am also super thankful for GAC country music channel, it keeps me entertained when I take breaks from said crafts:)

day 6

Day 6 I am thankful for technology, without it I wouldn't keep up with half the friends and family I do now. I have never been good at writeing letters or talking on the phone so its either email, fb, or text messages for me:)

day 5!

30 days of thanks is back...


Day 5 I am thankful for puzzles, chips and salsa, and guitar hero, and early bedtime for the kiddos, and quiet time with the husband, well not really quiet time, but time with just me and him! It doesn't happen very often but when it does its amazing!
