Update - August.

Okay what possesses a child to draw on themselves like this? I just love that these two turkeys were in trouble but still wanted to say CHEESE.
Saturday while Brant was off for fun with his Brothers before Brocks big day this coming Saturday, my parents, myself and the boys went to Shilder Oklahoma to a car show. This was my favorite car there. I think it was mostly cause I hadnt seen a 70's mustang that caught my eye before. Love the Blue and Grey!

These are photos from the Swim Party the Primary had about a month ago. Yes that is basically all that attended. Our poor little ward is shrinking! The boys had fun. Adults had fun laughing at the kids! Good times.

What else is new.
We sold our truck. We had a sour deal go down with "friends" that caused a real bad taste in our mouth with the vehicle. So we sold it. It went very fast and now has a happy home on a farm in some farm town in oklahoma. It was a good truck, fun times.
I'm looking for a car and brant is looking for some goofy "tinkering -towing-make how i want" vehicle, what that will be is still left up in the air. So we are living with one car right now which is rather annoying. We placed a bid on a Sonata for myself, pretty car.... if we dont get it I have my eye on a few Lincoln LS's that are just so pretty and peppy.

So that is all that is going on here. I was informed tonight that I was lazy and needed a job, and a few other things, dont you love it when self righteous people interject themselves into your life. Dont you love it when they are that awesome they can judge your choices. Choices that were made in respect to your children and not your bank account? Amazes me what clicks off inside someone's head to judge someone else. I've concluded that miserable people need their own state. Cause miserable breeds miserable. What miserable people dont know is that some of us dont hinge our self worth on what others think of us.
I'll step down from my soap box now. Moral of this last paragraph Miserable people Stink!

What to do at almost midnight?

See the purple circle on Parker's head?....

So the Parker has been getting out of his crib for the past week and will go from room to room getting himself into trouble. Last night we turned off all the lights upstairs so that it might discourage him. He decided he would go into our room. Well he couldnt see the edge of the bed and went face first off the end. Landing on the hardwood floors. Brant ran upstairs and by the time he got there it was already swollen. So he was in a panic. Now being a mom of two boys that seem to always fall, always bang themselves up, I wasnt too worried. Which I think kinda ticked the husband off. He insist I call the ER and see if we needed to bring him in. I to appease him made the call. They were like "if you want too" bring him in... but he should be fine just monitor him. And monitor Brant did. I think the little boy went to bed around 1 am this morning.
This morning he was up and chipper with the sunrise and after breakfast and after braden insisting he needed to be a dinosaur I got them to let me take a photo.

Kids seriously are not too fragile lol... now the frame they just knocked off the end table that shattered into a million pieces....................... thats fragile.

Braden Update

I've been afraid to post this, in fear somehow we will regress, but I'm pretty sure we are potty trained! Now for Parker, which did number 2 and 1 on the potty today after church. I think we have 5 more diapers left for him and we are going to pull ups! Wish us luck maybe by 2010 this house will be DIAPER FREE.

Whats new with us!

Warning: All photos were taken with a camera phone ---- so sorry!
After getting back from vacation we headed out to an evening on the water. Sunsets are just so beautiful, but on the water they just become breath taking.
I LOVE to draw in the sand.
This week it has been --- PROJECT WEEK. First project at hand is the play room. On the back of the boy's room is a 10 x 7 (roughly) room -- used to be a screen porch we think. It has been enclosed like sunroom. We've used it as storage. With the intent to use it as a craft room or something. With the growing knowledge that my boys will literally break anything of value or worth in the living room, a play room was born. To let you know what has been destroyed this year alone; brand new laptop, flat screen lcd tv, three precious moments, two OU collectible vehicles and........ well probably more but these are the things that I can recall right now. I've already moved all toys to the upstairs hoping it will force them to play in their room. Nope hasn't worked. So now, we are hoping that with the play room they will have their own place.
Cars is the theme of course. Cause "Cars is my favorite movie in the whole world". Both boys are in heaven so far with the decoration.
Still left on the list to finish the room. Curtains; doing a valance with racing black and white checks with a red accent on the bottom. Floor; black and white check (still need to order one more box ran out today). Build one shelf unit for the tv, so the tv can be anchored down. Chalk board; the windows let in alot of light so I am going to take a thin piece of wood and insert them into each of the bottom panes of the windows and then paint them (actually before i put them in there ) with chalk board paint... then do some peel and stick Velcro and they can have fun scribbling and drawing things.

Braden dressed himself this day. Needless to say grandma was going to take them to the park, but when she saw him like this she decided they could stay home.

So that is what is happening over here. We have at least four more projects to complete this week. So there will be more updates. Now I will go and finish re-arranging the living room.
