My 100th post......

Wow I never thought when I started this I would be writing my 100th post. That is exciting for me. Well, I guess I am behind with the holidays, so here I am and going to try and catch up.
Well, Christmas morning was awesome here in our house Santa got the kids tons... We are so blessed!!!! and this is how lucky I am... This pictures was taken before bed on Christmas eve before we looked online and tracked Santa and then we read Night before Christmas!!!!
As this year comes to a end, it has me thinking alot about what God has blessed me and my family with this year. First and mainly our three babies, we have had ups and down with each of them being sick and having health problems, but always remember that the Lord never gives us more than we can handle. Lately I have been wondering cause man things have not been going in our favor. Monday night we had electricity problems which caused the stove, microwave, house phone, Nicks xbox I bought him for Christmas and alarm clocks and our cable box in the living room all which blew up... And with the problem we have no heat until today at 2pm so from Monday night till Wed afternoon, no fun. So Monday night we had to stay at Nicks dads house then Tuesday during the day me and the kids went to Nicks moms house. Today we have been at home wile things are getting fixed with little heaters everywhere. Around 3pm Nicks dad got everything fixed.. You know I am so thankful for that man. We would not be where we are today if it was not for him. Well, so the problem was not the home owners or ours it was the electric company. A wire on the transformer by the road burnt into which was causing tons of problems around here. So I have made list of things that we lost and we are going to turn those into the Electric company and hoping that they can replace them... Well, enough of that. Well, let me tell you I can not be more ready for Braxton to go back to school. Wow, I never knew how much I would love him being in school or how much it helped. So, one more week and I am ready to get things back in order. Yesterday we got all the Christmas things put up and taken to the barn and stored till next year. You know after taking everything down the house seems so much bigger. I guess cause not all the stuff is out and around. I am liking this much better. So, I am calling the dr tomorrow because we still have not heard anything back from Brennons test and I am getting worried more now than ever. Well, it is way past my kids bedtime and they are still up watching wall e so time to get the kids to bed, then mommy has a load of laundry to do then it is bed time for me... As I got money from my grandparents for Christmas and I have been wanting a new comforter set so that I bought from Walmart, it was cheap so nothing fancy... But I just love it... Funny how when you get older the things you get excited about change so much... We have no plans for New Years eve, just relaxing at home and enjoying time as a family. That is the best!!!!

Merry Christmas

I hope each of you had a wonderful blessed Christmas... I know my family did, and man am I glad it is over. I should be in the bed right now, I have been up since 5am so I am kinda sleepy. Well, this morning we had to wake the kids up because Nick had to work so I wanted him to be here with us. So, when we woke them up this is what Braxton looked like, I didnt get a picture of Brennon he was not happy that we woke him up so early.
Then this is Braxton after he went and looked on the kitchen table to see if Santa ate his cookies and
drank his milk!!!
Then it was time, we started opening the gifts and let me tell you they both were so excited with every girft they opened and that was so great for me and Nick to see. I think that Santa got them everything they wanted, so we are blessed so much this year. Here are a few of the things the boys got from Santa brought them. Braxton has been asking for the board game sorry sliders well he got it
Brennon knew Braxton wanted a game so he wanted the same thing so he had been asking for gator golf, well here he is while Nick is opening it for him. I mean look at the faces they are making this was so priceless.....

Brooke got a holiday Barbie, babies, more babies (get it she has tons of babies now) and a baby stroller, clothes, and several small things she loved it. I also need to say man I love having a baby girl because she wore her new smocked Christmas dress and her big bow. I am in love with my baby girl!!!

We went to my moms sisters for lunch and they kids got one more gift and kept asking mommy is there anymore.. Gosh did you not get enough, KIDS!!!!
Nick's mom lives close to my aunts house so we went over there and I helped her around her house for a while waiting on Nick to get off. She has hurt her back, so I am doing some things for her. Then when it was almost time for Nick to get off, me and the kids loaded up and headed home. After being some only for a few mins it was time for us to go to Nicks dads house and eat supper and open gifts..
Nick is really sick, fever, chills he does not feel good at all, which he is not him, he was been in the bed since 730, poor thing. So, when we got back home it was time for me to do some cleaning up from all the morning mess... And start putting all these new toys up.. Then I got kids in bed and I got on here to do my favorite thing ever..... And now I am so sleepy I am going to get in the bed with my hubby and go night night... Merry Christmas all!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will try and post more pictures soon......

My husband


Well, for some reason as I lay in bed listening to Nick snore beside me. I feel like I need to make this post about him and really just how awesome I think he is and that he really is...
Ok so I know that all of the other woman that are married and they think they have the best husband ever, so with that I feel the same way. I wake up everyday and man am I so thankful to be laying in the bed next to him.. I really cant put out here what I am really feeling cause I am not sure how to write it.. I am just so happy, blessed that I have him as a husband the the kids have him as daddy... Him as a daddy wow I will tell you more about that in a few, but just as husband we have been married for going on 5 years and loving every second of it. I couldnt be any happier. Well, yeah like most people we have our ups and downs and so on but we work thru it and it only makes us stronger and better people together. Since we have been married I have maybe worked like 1 year if even that. Because he gets up everyday and goes and works so I dont have too. Even when we didnt have kids, so I mean that is alot to me. And now he is working 60 or more hours a week just for me and the kids, yeah that means he doesnt get to see the kids that much but he does it so they will have a place to stay, clothes, food, and so on you get the point. I will say thank you to him but that will never be enough, I owe him so much for that. I really could go on and on with things that he does for me and I really dont have that much time. I love my husband more and more everyday and he is my rock!!! And him being a father is amazing and that is all I can say... And I know if I went and asked the kids about daddy they would say the same thing. Well, for some reason I really needed everyone to know this about Nicholas Sean Parker, my husband, best friend, my everything, father to me three kids!!!!!
I love you honey so so much!!!!!!!!!!!













Also here are two vidoes that I have taken with my new phone... I can take the video and then upload it to youtube from the phone,
so I think I will be doing this alot more... Enjoy

super sick

Wow the title says it all, I am so so sick.... So, today I have been just laying around the house....
Last night went great with my mom, brother, and sis... Braxton got a huge nerf gun, Brennon got a puzzle and a box full of many different kinds of games, and Brooklyn got a doll that talks to her (like the abc's and colors) She loved it. She has a pink poodle and I just love her saying dog-dog.... It is the cutest thing ever...Well, so I am sick and nothing exciting has happened around here. So, I am going to watch the movie the worlds greatest dad... And please still be in prayer for Brennon and our family as we wait till hear how Brennons blood work comes back...
Have a blessed Sunday and Praise the lord for another wonderful day with my amazing family!!

so excited for Christmas

So, I am sitting at the kitchen table and looking thru books and online to find Christmas cookie recipes. Tomorrow night is our 1st Christmas get together. My mom, step-dad, brother, sisternlaw and nephew and of course me, Nick and our kiddos... So, it is going to be simple cause you know things are tight for almost everyone so my mom and step-dad got gifts for the grandbabies but that was it.. We are just happy that we can spend the time together. So, my mom is going to order pizzas and bring them, ,my brother has the drinks so I am wanting to make something fun... Any ideas please let me know... Well, Brennon had his three year check up this morning and man poor baby it is always something with him it seems like. So dr came in and he really wouldnt stop talking so she could ask him questions. Well, ok so I am just going to get to it...He wakes up alot in the night with pains in his legs to a point where nothing seems to help, we just let him scream and u all know as a parent that is the worst.. So, I was talking to the doctor today about it and she said it sounds like he could have arthritis in his legs.. And you remember that he has mirgrianes and is on meds daily for those well maybe the arthritis could be causing them as well.. I am not sure what to think but I ahve to take him back so that can run test and do blood work to find out for sure. Also doctor told me to get ready he was going to be my sick baby..... And once again as a parent that was really hard to hear knowing that he is only three and he has a long life to live and I just pray and beg that he does not have to live all those years in pain... So I am here asking well, really begging for everyones prayers for Brennon Layne, for the dr to find really what is causing all his pain. I may be crazy as a mommy but I feel like there is something wrong with him and it is going to be bad but it is going to take us a while to really figure out what is going on with him and it all scares me but again maybe I am crazy...
Well, whatever it is I know that God will not give us more than we can handle and he does everything for a reason. So, right now we are just waiting for all the test results to come back and see where we stand from there. Well, now onto positive things!!!!!!!
Well, after the drs appt me, Brennon and Brooklyn went to finish our Christmas shopping. And finally we are done. We have all of our kids things on layaway and we have like 100 more dollars to pay and hoping we will be able to do that this weekend and then we will be done.... Then it is onto wrapping everything and man that is going to be tough for sure.
In the morning we are going to Braxtons school and they are having the Christmas party in the morning then we get to take the kids home and they are on Christmas break... What I am going to have three kids all day for 2 weeks man I might go crazy uhh, well I am hoping not cause my kids are the best.. Well, just put Brooklyn to bad and now the boys are playing xbox for a few then they are off to bed too... I am going to get up and go to Braxtons party then I am hoping to go and get somethings to start baking.... Well, another prayer request is for my daddy. He lost his job at the 1st of the week, and he was the only one working so now they have no income and its Christmas time so he is having a really hard time..





Here is Brennon before the doctor came in, he loved this book

Sissy reading her book!!!!!!!


So, I am super excited I think I have finally figured this blog thing!!!!!! and that is so so exciting for me... Thank you Lana my picture problem was what you thought it was.... And I do not like it that way...
Well, I am going to the mailbox and put our Christmas cards in there
and here they are.. I am in love with the design... Well, I am guessing that it is time for me to put the boys in the bed and after mailing cards then hot bath and bed for me as well, I still have a cold and this runny nose it getting old for sure.. Hubby should be home soon and I cant wait!!!!!!
Goodnight and please say a prayer for my family before you go to bed tonight... Thanks you all!!!

Its almost Santa time

So for some reason when I am trying to upload pictures on here it is kinda crazy. So, before when they would upload it would show me the pics in this area before I posted it, well, now it is only putting the code here and I am really not liking that.
Oh well, on to our week, well for the past few days I have done nothing and I mean nothing... So cleaning here and there, tonight we had Nicks mom and my dad over for dinner. So that was a very nice meal. In the morning Nicks dads is coming and picking Braxton up early for school and take him to get breakfast then to school. I just love Papa he is awesome.... Well, Friday we start our Christmas. Friday night we are having, my mom, step-dad, brother, sisnlaw and nephew over at our house... My mom got the grankids something but that is it. So really we are just enjoying the time together which is even better.... Nick was off today but had to work a full day with his dad, only cause we need extra money right now cause last night me and the kids went to Walmart and bought him his present.. We bought him a xbox 360 elite and he loves it. It is crazy how much money those things cost.
Braxton is so close to Christmas break and I cant wait... Friday is his last day and he only goes for 2 hrs for his party which we can go with him and then take him home... Well, I am loving my Christmas present I couldnt have asked for anything better, Daphney is just a wonderful puppy... But I am still loving my two big boxers they are girls too...
Oh news, Sissy is fixing to start walking.. We took her to the dr and they were not worried cause she was not walking yet said that it was normal for a baby that was 6 wks early. She told me that some preemies walk at 12 months but if not it is really nothing to worry about, plus she is mommys girl and I spoil her so so much she is super lazy just like me. After hearing all that from the Dr, really made me feel better cause I was like ok my baby is never going to walk... Well, I was told not to worry or saying anything cause she will walk when she wants too and is ready. And man she turned 16 months old and like all of a sudden she has started talking like crazy.
I mean she is just so full of life and man does she love her daddy.. I am thinking about doing a post for and of her being 16 months old... But not tonight
Well, Brennon is good just wild and really doesnt want to listen to me and man does that drive me crazy.... Guess and really hoping he will grow out of this..
Funny thing, Braxton said mommy I want to change my name to Barack Obama, I mean out of nowhere he just came up to me and said that, the things kids hear and learn from school is just crazy but cute and funny at the sametime...Well, I guess that is all for now going to bed, boys are in the bed with us tonight not know why but man do I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

busy time of year

Well, the title just says it all... Christmas time is so so busy for us. Well, Friday night me and Nick went out with my brother and his wife.. We went to eat at Logans then we went back to their house and played cards. Here is a pic of me and April taking a break from playing cards for a few....


















then after our long night there, me and Nick didnt get in bed till 4am and I was ok cause you all know that I dont have to get up, well he works on Sat and he had to be there at 10am which e has to leave at 9am, so that was really sucky for him... So, while the kids were still at papas I slept in and then finally got up and got some cleaning done. Well, me and my brother and his wife and little boy and all three of my babies went to Opry Mills to Bass Pro Shop and get the kids pictures made with Santa.. The boys did great but Brooke would not let me go, so I was in the picture... then we went over to the hotel to look at the lights and let me just say I love that place. Here are a few pics of the family from there too....





So when Nick got off he came down and the hotel and we had a great time...
Today was such a lazy day for me and the kids... We have done nothing and man can you tell I need to get up and clean the house some... but it has been so so nice to just sit around and do nothing....
Oh and I ordered our Christmas cards today and I cant wait to go to Walmart and pick them up and I will try and let you see one on here... Time for supper here, so I have to go and do something now.

sick babies

Sunday night Brooklyn would not go to sleep she was really fussy so finally she went to sleep and then when we woke up yesterday morning her eyes were almost matted shut and you could tell she just felt bad. So, we layed back down and went back to sleep. Well, when we got back up she seemed to e worse and Brennon eyes looked really nasty too, so we got ready to go and pick Braxton up from school and I knew then I had to take them both to the dr then. So I called and they could not get them in, but could see them after hours so at 5 we had a appt. When we got there I felt bad cause sissy eyes looked awful, I mean bad... So, we saw the dr and Brooke has a eye infection in both eyes, and a double ear infection, also we were told that she had early signs of h1n1 flu. So, all three got the h1n1 shot and then she put Brooke and Ben and meds for the eyes cause she said Ben had eye infections too. Plus Brooke had meds for her ear infections too. So we left and went to walmart and got the meds and man they were sick and just wanted to be at home, I felt so so bad for having them out but I had to get the meds. So we came home all three ate chicken nuggets then it was bath time. So, Brooke took bath and her meds and she was out... Then it was the boys turn so I gave Ben his eye drops and wow he is a fighter. So today Brooke is still sick but seems to be tons better, and Brennon eyes are nasty just like Brooklyns but he says he feels fine. So far today we have not got out of our pjs. Brooklyn is eating a snack right now before we go and pick up Bubba from school. Then it is home for us cause man it is super cold out there. So we all need to stay inside. And since we are inside mommy needs to do some cleaning for that I will do... So, I will try and post again tonight about the rest of our day went. Have a wonderful day and try and stay warm...

Thanksgiving






MAN I have so much to be thankful for right now mainly this. I do not know what I would do without this man in my life and being the father of my kids. I mean I just dont think me saying Nick I Love you can even say how I really feel about him. And after that man my kids mean the world to me. And let me tell you we had a amazing Thanksgiving. First we went to my brothers and my sis fixed my hair and then we were off to my moms family. There we had great food, and loved seeing everyone again. After that one we went to Nicks step moms family, there Nicks stepmom made some awesome ham so we ate again there. Then the kids played for a while then it was time for us to leave once again. We came home and kinda took a break for a few. Then it was 5pm and time to start getting things ready for the dinner we were having at our house. So, we did that and around 8pm everyone left and man were we tired, it had been a busy busy day. Friday we all about Christmas around here, we put our tree up and all the decorations, while listening to Christmas music. This is my favorite time of year. I just love the holiday season....
So today was more than a lazy day here, so right now I am so ready for bed and that is where I am going now, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!!!!
Good Night and really looking forward to amazing day of worship tomorrow...

My preemie baby girl

Mommy and baby girl
This is what she looked like the first time me and Nick got to see her




Well, I want to start out by saying this experience ever, we are so blessed. Well, we had two boys and I carried both of them to at least 38 weeks, and they were healthy boys and we got to go home after two days. The normal!!!
Then I was pregnant with my 3rd and even before we found out the sex at 19 weeks I went to dr because I had been having contractions, so they just said they would watch me and we would see where things went from there, well the next week I had my ultrasound and we were super excited to find out we were having a GIRL>> Everything looked wonderful but I was still having contractions and they could not figure out why well, these contractions came and went ever so often by the time I was 30 weeks, I was getting kinda use to them, well August 8th I was 34 weeks and I woke and yeah having contraction but that is normal right, so I just stayed in the bed for a while and it was kinda funny cause that morning I told Nick that I didnt want him to go to work so I was going to have this baby. Well, after 12 I was ok something is different cause they are not going away and man are they strong, so I was told to get up and do normal things and if I was still having them then it for go time. Well, after a shower and getting boys ready to go see Papa I was still having them and they have never lasted that long so I was kinda worried, well I called the dr and they told me they could not get me in so there was nothing they could do, and that kinda made me mad, so ok I was going to the hospital cause I knew something was different. We took the boys to Nicks dad and we were on our way to the hospital and the dr called and said they had a opening and the nurse pac. could see me asap. So I told them we were already on our way to the hospital and we would be right there. I got there and they took me right back. Well, no wait and doc was in there and she was checking me and we already knew I was dialated to a 3 have been since 30 weeks, well I was a 4 now so after you get to 5 there is no turning back or really trying to stop it from there. So over to the hospital I went, so so scared... When I get there and all hooked up I am still having contractions so the dr wanted to try and stop my labor they gave me some meds and man was I sleepy, and I was happy cause we thought it was working then the doctor came in and was like yu can go home if you want but you will go into labor soon so at the time we lived 40 mins away from hospital plus adding time getting the boys somewhere so around a n hour and the dr told me well, go downstairs and get something to eat and we will see how things are after that, I guess as soon as she said that I was screaming, and omg they were coming and they were strong, fast, and everything else. I was hurting... So, at that time the doctor saod sorry you are not getting out of this bed she is coming. I was kinda happy my baby girl was going to be born on 8-8-08. Thought that was neat. Anyways I had to get tons of meds before she actually came, which made me super sick and sleepy. So at 2:30 I remember them trying to wake me up to push it was time. And she was born at 2:45 and I didnt push her out she came out on her own. I remember still being out of it and looking over and the nicu nurses trying to get my tiny baby girl to breath and Nick and his mom keep saying is she ok. I really dont remember anything after that, I went to sleep and woke up the next morning and they were moving me to another room and all I could do was cry, I didnt remember anything but knew I was no longer pregnant and I didnt have a baby in the room with me as I did with the boys. So, I am a wreck and I just want to see my baby girl. Well, this was the hardest thing I have ever had to see I mean and if you have not had to experience this you have no idea. She was so tiny only 5 lbs, I was use to 7 ad 8 lbs, so this was totally different. And all me and Nick could do was touch her and she had wires and tubes and it was awful... Then they told us we have to leave the dr was coming in then he would come and talk to me. I had to leave what that is my baby I want her. Well, I went to my room the boys came which helped tons and all the family. And we would get to see her every few hours, I finally got to hold her when she was 4 days old, that is the first time I feed my baby. She was in the hospital for a total of 8 days which didnt seem long ut with two other kids at home and the oldest just stared school so this is really tough on me and Nick but we had to be strong all three of our babies. She is 15 months now and still super tiny only weighs 20 pounds. She has had a few delays and this has been hard on me cause I have never been thru that before. But she is my baby girl.... She is still not walking and I am hoping that soon she will start. So please please I am begging everyone to support the March of Dimes, because I feel like without them Brooklyn might not be with us today. I have raised money and walked in the walk and I that has made me feel so wonderful.. So to all the other preemie mommies yes Brooklyn had a easy road in the nicu and all and alot have been thru so so much worse. I feel we all have to come together and raise money and awareness for this so we can prevent premature births...

missing

Well, I am sad tonight as I lay here in the bed, all kids in the bed waiting on Nick to get home. I miss Traci, I just knew the lord put here in my life and she was the one, and now it seems like we never talk and I am so sad. So Traci I wanna get back together if it is me coming to your house or which ever I am all for it I miss you so so much. I want that person we I do things with and tell everything... I feel like I am needing this right now....
Well, Braxton is doing get in school. I have something I need to get off my chest. My sister n law asked me tonight if I thought Braxton was depressed cause he cries a lot and whines. Are you for real that thought has never crossed my mind. Oh well I just need to say that why would you even say that to a parent. I was kinda hurt by those words so I was just ready to leave her house asap. I love my babies even if my 5 year old cries and whines alot oh well that is him and he is my baby. Ok now I feel better just had to get that off my chest. Brennon is doing wonderful we are still giving him meds to stop his mirgrianes and it is working great. Brooklyn is 15 months old and she is showing no signs of walking anytime soon. And I am getting kinda upset I want to be able to help her and there is nothing I can do for her.. I mean I stand up with her and hold her fingers and she walks with me but she really doesnt want to walk on her own. I just want the best for my kids and I feel like she is missing out cause she is not walking yet. I hope that I am just being crazy but I feel bad. Well, Nick is off today and I am super excited to get to spend the night with him, I am usually in the bed when he gets home. I am so bless with a wonderful husband and kids father, he works so hard so we can have things and so I can stay at home with the kids... I am feeling very blessed right now. Well, almost time for nap for baby girl so she is getting kinda fussy mommy going to rock my baby girl.....

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I have been thinking about this post all day. I have spent this beautiful Saturday at home and not doing much of anything. I did get a few things done but not alot. So poor sissy has had around 10 runny pretty much water today so needless to say her bottom is really red and it hurts her so bad. So, we went on a field trip Thursday with Braxtons class. The boys had a blast and I loved seeing the smile on their faces.... I will post pictures of this trip in a few. Braxton is doing wonderful in school, he still needs some help and is behind in a few things but overall he is great. Brennon is having a few headaches here and there but alot better. Brennon is great but sometimes has a hard time listening to mommy and doing what he is told to do, or even just doing things he knows he doesnt need to do at all, but I guess he is 3 years old so yeah... Brooklyn is the laziest baby I have ever seen or even heard of. I am just ready cause right now I am having to carry her alot and man she is finally getting bigger... I have the best husband ever, we are just so perfect. Oh yeah almost forgot last night Nicks mom kept the kids while me and him went Christmas shopping for the kids and I am so proud to say we are done... Yeah the kids might not get alot of huge things but mommy and daddy got them everything we could... I cant wait till Christmas morning to see their faces. I guess besides that we have really just been laying low... I am hoping to get up and take the kids to church in the morning and I am really looking forward to hear a amazing message and that is me time I just sit and take everything in. Well, I am getting really sleepy so I guess that is all for tonight... Gob bless and have a wonderful day of worship tomorrow...
Emily


well just tried to post a few pictures but it will not work so maybe I will tomorrow

I LOVE BEING A WIFE AND MOMMY


Sometimes I feel like I am so busy that I never have time to blog, but tonight I have been sitting in the bed and reading the blogs I follow and I miss blogging, this is my name... ME all me no kids, dogs phone ringing.. Nobody or Nothing needing me. This is only ME time, so how am I am not blogging all the time? Well, who knows no one really knows but me and I really dont even know. So, I am done wondering why, I am just going to blog and try and get on here more often for ME!!!!
Well, I have super news my baby is trying to walk, she is walking holding on to things like the couch and things and sometimes she will let go and be standing alone for a few secs. and tonight she was holding onto the chair and then let go and went to grap her walker... So, if you have been reading my blog then you know that I am really wanting her to start walking, and I do know that she will in her own time but man I am ready, she is almost 15 months.... Ok well me and the hubby are so awesome, I love him more and more everyday. and I have no idea why I put that on here but I just wanted to tell someone. The boys are doing good. Well, are all settled in and ready to start over again. Money is awful and we have none and we moved for cheaper rent. So, right now we are still having a hard time but we both know that soon things will start looking up for our family. Well, I am so super excited for the holiday season and sharing all the memories with all of you..... Have a wonderful Friday and GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU..... Also enjoy the picture of the kids on Halloween.....

loving life

THE BIRTHDAY BOY
BRENNON OPENING HIS PRESENTS
MOMMY PRINCESS IN HER PRINCESS DRESS
I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW BIG HE IS GETTING
SHE LOVES HER WALKER
Well I am very happy to say that things are very close to normal around here. We have been in the new house for 3 weeks and we are loving every sec of it here. We are in the country and no one is around us.. Braxton has started his new school and he has the best teacher ever.. We love Mrs. Jessica... And I think a plus to being in Cannon County schools is Braxtons granny is the Director of schools....
So what we have been up too here, well I am really just being lazy, I am so tired from all the moving and now I am enjoying just sitting around doing nothing. Nick still working 4 10 hour days and yep I am still not liking it... I want him home with us here, we never see him and it is starting to get to me..... I miss him more and more every day... And on his 3 days off from Verizon he is having to work with his daddy... I miss the days when he had a normal Mon-Fri 8-5 job.... We done so much as a family and I miss those days so much... But also I keep telling myself that we should be thankful that he has a good job and he is able to get up and go.... And dont get me wrong I am very thankful every sec of everyday for what God has blessed me and my family with. Well, now on to Brennon he is THREE now... He had a wonderful Spongebob party and he got lots of cool toys and he is loving them... He is getting so big he wants to do whatever Braxton does and I love watching them play together.... and Brooklyn little miss thang. She is good getting bigger everyday I think. She is still doing her own thing. She really does not want to start walking and we are just like she will walk when she wants too.. On her own time I guess. We have all hardwood floors in the new house so she has a walker and she is getting everywhere so she is happy with that... I am guessing that is it for now and here are some pictures... God Bless and hope everyone has a wonderful hump day....

Crazy times around here like always

Well, I am sitting here 1 in the morning and I ahve alot on my mine, cant sleep.... Well, if you follow my blog then you know I kinda have this problem about sleeping all the time, I thought I was getting better but went back to where I sleep all the time. I have been to the dr cause man this is crazy. And I have some to terms with all this that I am just plain lazy. Ok so I know this but what do I do about it? I try adn go to bed early and then get up and get things done around the house but it doesnt really work out. The kids sleep alot too so I just sleep too. I am really trying to change but I am well I just dont know what else to do. Well, I am so over talking about this so what have we been up too? Nothing really just kinda hanging out and being lazy. So, Braxton is on fall break and we are super excited to be able to spend two weeks with him. Brennon's headaches have came back, so we are uping the meds and they seem to helping again. But the Med is a anti-dpression so it does have some side affects but I guess you deal with them and go on. As long as his awful headaches go away then I am ok with that. Well, Brooklyn is still just being lazy and doing her own things. She is not even trying to walk and I am like uhh come on. But I know that she will when she wants too, so mommy just needs to let her do it as she wants too. I think we are all non-sick again and thats a plus. We have several busy things coming up in a coming weeks. Our main one is we are all getting flu shots. Yeah we are always sick so we are getting them. Then we have a few other things we have to get done. Well, I guess that is it, kids are with Nicks dad right now so I done nothing all day, and tomorrow night has to work tomorrow and I am going to clean the carpets and org. some things in the house tomorrow and then when I finally get things done then I gotta go get my babies that right now I am starting to miss so bad. I am really looking forward to me getting the spend a whole week with all three babies and I am hoping that we get to do tons of fun things. Ok well, I am going to finish watching singing bee on cmt then I am off and try and get some sleep. Goodnight and I hope that everyone has a wonderful rest of the weekend.......

busy busy week

finally things are slowing down... Well, I guess I have alot of updating to do. So here I go. Nicks mom got to go home today. I am suoer glad but man I didnt think she was ready but they sent her home anyways. Well, she has had a rough rough week. So all in all she has alot of lung damage and this is why she could not breath on her own and also her oxgyen level were so low that she was nbot getting enough oxygen to her brain so she was crazy... And this was so so scary.... Well, she is home now and we are hoping that things start looking up from here.
So, now to us, well me I have spent the night at the hospital the past 2 nights and man that chair was not comfy. I am so happy to be laying in my bed typing this right now. Nicks was off today so we were so lazy all day. I had a friend come and visit and I was so happy cause I have not seen her in a while. After nap Brennon and Brooklyn woke up with a high fever Brennon was 103 and Brooke was almost that high. So we took meds and layed around... After that me and Nick wanted to go eat and hoping this would make us feel better. So this was great food, but Brooklyn cried almost the whole time. So that was not so so fun. Well, after that we just came home and got ready for bed and here we are. Well, I gave the kids more meds before bed and I am hoping that they wake up in the morning and feel better. So, Nick has to work tomorrow so me and the kids will just stay at home and I will clean and we will just hang out. I am hoping to update more now that things are calm around here. So goodnight and hope u have a great weekend....

SO THEY WERE TRYING TO GIVE HER MEDS TO CALM HER DOWN AND I WENT AT 9AM, AND BEFORE I GOT BACK TO HER ROOM I WOULD EAR HER SCREAMING LIKE SHE WAS BEING HURT. WHICH SHE WAS NOT SHE JUST THOUGHT WAS. SO ME AND MY DAD WERE THERE TRYING TO CALM HER DOWN, NOTHING REALLY HELP AT ALL NOT US MEDS OR ANYTHING. SO SHE WAS SO CRAZY DR SENT HER FOR A CT SCAN OF HER BRAIN WONDERING IF MAYBE THE INFECTION OR THE HIGH FEVER HAS CAUSED SOMETHING. SO HERE WE GO WITH HER TRYING TO KEEP HER IN THE BED.

Today was another good day here. I am going to make this short I am sleepy but today Brennon was not feeling well so we spent most of the day laying around the house. Brooklyn was with us until it was her nap time and then it was time to go and get Braxton from school. And after that we stayed outside and enjoyed the amazing weather. After that Nick came home and we layed around some more. Then yummy we cooked breakfast food for supper, and it was so so good. Then it was family time so we went on a long walk and the kids got to play on the playground at the school, then we walked somemore and then it was getting dark so we came home and ate ice cream. Then I went to tan and Nick started getting the kids in the bed. Then me and Nick watched Big Brother... I am sad I really like Jeff and Jordan, it sucks. Well, tomorrow we have a followup appt with Brennons headache dr. The meds are working really good... So, hopefully everything will stay going great. Well, Goodnight...

I was going to post last night but I am laying in the bed and Nick was like I have a headache will you please turn the light and the computer off... uhh are you for real, so yep I did. So here I am tonight laying in the bed before Nick gets off. So today was beyond lazy.... wait our weekend was good... I can say great cause I had the weekend at home alone to get some cleaning done.. So Friday night we all went to the Celebration and had a great time. When time to leave the kids went home with Nicks dad and stepmom. So I called to pick them up Saturday afternoon and nope they were tkaing them to the horse show again and you know what I didnt argue with him. So, stayed at home and done some major cleaning. Then Nick got off and we went to bed. So Sunday he had to work again and I had to finish doing laundry. So, I had the hwole house super clean and almost all the laundry done and I was like uhh no kids here I should go and mow the yard, so man I just got everything done. So, after that I came in done more laundry took shower and went to tan then to Walmart for a few things. While I was checking out Nick called and he had got off work early. YAY!!!! So, I came home unloaded what I bought then me and him went to Woodbury to pick the kids up that I cound not get there fast enough I really missed my babies.... So, then today Braxton went to school, and me and Brenn and Brooke were super lazy cause I already had everything done around here. So, around 11 we went on a walk then came home and took a nap. So after Nick came home for his lunch me and the boys done yard work. Nick had trimmed trees around the house so we picked everything up. Then we heard the ice cream truck and we never saw him could only hear the music. So the boys are standing at the end of the drive way. So after sitting there for almost 10 mins I asked them if they wanted to walk to Cason Lane school so they could play on the playground for a little while and you know they took off running. So on a walk we went again. We went to the school and they played and on our way walking back to the house we stopped the ice cream truck.... So, by the time we got home the ice cream was all gone and it was time for three sticky kids to get in the bathtub. So after bath it was time to start getting ready for bed and here we are..... Well, tomorrow Nick is off but I think he is going to work with his dad but I am not for sure. So we will see. I know I have a few things to get done around the house..... So, I hope everyone had a great Monday. Please say a prayer for Traci, like she has not been thru enough she got pick back int he hospital. I think she is home now and still pray for her. I am hoping we meet Wed. Goodnight and enjoy a few pics for today....

Good Day






Today was a really good day, the 1st part of the morning we were lazy which is ok to do sometimes right.... Anyways so we finally got up and moving but still didnt do anything until it was time to go pick Braxton up at school. So after that we had a hair appt. Which praise the lord the boys hair so super long. And I needed a color BAD> So, in order for me to get my hair done with three kids is Nicks mom met me @ the hair salon and we got the boys hair done then she took all 3 back to her house in my truck. So I enjoyed my time alone getting my hair done. Tomorrow I am really looking forward too. Well, Nick is off but is working some ovetime but only for 4 hours. Then after Braxton gets out of school its all FAMILY. I think we are going to take the kids to the celebration. Nicks dad has a box that they get every hear, and I really enjoy going but I think where Nick had to go with he was little he is over it. But Braxton loves it and now that Brennon is older I think he will love it too. So I have been laying in the bed since 8pm. and it is now 1125pm...... I cant go to sleep. So here I am my favorite thing to do is BLOG. not only blogging myself but I also love to read blogs... I AM ADDICTED



Well, I am going to try and lay down now hopefully I can get some sleep... Here is the princess after bath and in her new Dora night gown. and this is in my bedroom and I went to the living room and tell the boys that sissy was done taking a bath and they needed to come get in and I went into my bathroom and found this after.......so I had to run and get the camera again... I thought this was the cutest thing ever..... and also here is a pic after my hair appt today.

Well, first for two days I have been wondering if I wanted to keep my hair blonde or go back dark brown with highlights. So here I am after.... Hope you enjoy GOODNIGHT....

weekends over already

Wow it does not seem that it should be Monday already but I guess it is. Time to start another week back at school. Well, I want to tell you a little about my life daily and a few different things. So 1st off I get up or Nick doe sat 7am and Braxton has to be at school before 8am. So after we drop him off most of the time we go back to bed and sleep till almost 10am. Then we are up he goes to work I get kids up and fed and all that good stuff and when its about 1pm Brooke is ready for a nap, a nap girl you just got up (and no I am not complaining cause my babies sleep but is this normal, cause lately I am feeling really bad about it) anyways we have to pick Braxton up at 230pm, so after that we all come home and it is nap time. We then get up do supper they play then it is bath and bedtime again. Ok so did you see where we just pretty much sleep all the time. Well, I know it is me but I have been to the dr and they found nothing worng. So if you have any suggest please let me know. So our weekend was good. Friday we did nothing but enjoyed time with Nicks mom and my daddy, then Saturday I have looking forward to for a long time. We went to the Nashville State Fairgrounds flea market and oh my I had missed it so much, I use to go every month but its been almost a year since we have been. I got the cutest new wallet, I will try and post pics of it soon. And I was looking at purses but man I really dont need one. Well, after that we took the kids to Nicks dads house cause the boys wanted to spend the night so me and Nick went to the races. Got home after 10pm I know and I could not sleep. So, I took some meds that make me sleep and boy did it work, I woke up at 10am this morning when Nick was leaving for work I ate a pop tart and cereal then layed back down and nect thing I know is that is was 5PM and Nick was coming home for lunch. WAIT A MINUTE I slept all day, yep thats correct. So it is 11pm right now and guess what I am WIDE awake. So, hopefully I will get some sleep after. So so my whole thing is I want to be a normal everyday family. I feel like we are not normal I sleep Nick works all the time and sleeps when he can then there are the kids just kinda out there. I am sitting here crying cause I am so upset I feel like a bad mommy. So, right now I said a prayer to JESUS and I am changing not only for myself but for my family. We will always have cooked meals and not as much eating out, I will play with my kids and enjoy them and I am going to clean I want my house to be clean all the time. Its not now days if anyone wants to come over they cant cause I have to clean 1st. I mean is this normal I dont feel like it. I am loneing for a girl friend I call and tell every little thing too, and who does the same to me and we get together at least once a week just because we are best friends I am really need this. Well, I have the bestest friend ever reading this and I know u are the bestest friend ever and I am hoping that we can get closer.

So I am guessing everything that I am going thru right now is only making me a stronger person and also a better wife mommy and just a better person in general. Well, 1st off I think our money problems are getting better but we will see how things go for here. Kids are doing good which is so awesome for us. Braxton still loving school and I am super excited. Brennon is been headache free for at least a whole week maybe longer than that. So we are praising the Lord everyday because we stop and think about what could have happen with him having headaches.
Brooklyn is ONE and getting so big. Last Saturday we had her 1st birthday party and it went great but I am so so happy that Traci and her babies came. I am so lucky to have a friend like her. Brooke got alot of clothes which she really needed for winter. She is still not walking just army crawling but she will soon I hope. I am do a post later for her being one. Right now I just wanna play catch up. Well, we are going to tell Nicks dad that he needs to buy the house from us so we can go file and if he doesnt we are going to file anyways. Me and Nick just need to do this for us and the kids and right now that is all that matters. So please pray for us. Well, we were eating at Cracker Barrrel tonight and I got a phone call from my mom, well her and my stepdad had gotten into a fight and he told her to leave... So she was going to stay in a hotel I said no way you are coming to stay with us. So she is here. I love my mommy more than anything and I am so blessed that I could be here for her right now when she needs me the most because she is always there for me and the my kids when we need her. Well, I am going to bed have to get up and clean carpets tomorrows. so fun fun stuff plus got to watch sheets on our and the kids bed. I am going to cook a big supper for mommy tomorrow night I hope. Well, goodnight and hope everyone has a great rest of the week

Man how life can be so so hard sometimes

Growing up is all I can say. I guess this is part of growing up. Well, I am just asking you to pray for me and my family as we are going thru hard times right now. I really wish I could turn back time and make all this go away and I would for real never ever done all that we have done again it is not worth it. I mean I am hurting today for my kids, cause they are also hurting from Nick and myselfs mistakes. and this is why I would change it if I could. But I cant thats not how life works. I did it yeah and learn from it now I want to move on.
ok WAIT I didn not cheat on Nick nor did he cheat on me. I know that is how is sounds but thats not it at all.
Ok now that I got that out of the way I can finish, well I just read what I had already wrote and took a little break and I feel like I just need to talk about everything so here it goes.
Me and Nick lived in a huge 3800 square foot house and had everything.... Nice cars, kids had everything and you get the point. Yes we made really good money well, one day that really good money was no longer there. So there we were in a huge house paying 1200 dollars a month, plus everything else. So once we had no money coming in then we had to move out cause we were 3 months behind and soon the bank was fixing to take it. So here we are a family of 5 no income and how you going to find something else when you have no income so we moved in with Nicks mom, and stayed for several months until we got jobs and money to get on our feet again. Well the whole time Nicks dad took over payments of our other house cause he built it and had so much money in it didnt just want the bank to take it. Well, a year later we are even worse. Fixing to lose my truck and doing good to pay bills. So needless to say very hard times. Well Nicks dad has once again talked Nick out of doing anything but running from all this debt and it is getting old. I mean I want more for my kids. Well, I am really done talking about it.
So thats where we have been just laying low. Well, my baby is 1 and her 1st birthday party is tomorrow. Seems like yesterday I was going into early labor and so worried...
Well, tonight we might to a a cousin baseball game the boys enjoy going. Then we have to get things ready for the party tomorrow. In the morning I am hoping to just go pick up the cake then head to Nicks dads place. So I am really hoping for a happy happy day. Well, I am off to try and clean the house some. And then cook supper hopefully Nick will be here around 5 and not have to work to late. but who knows.....







Here is Brennon and Brooklyn at Nashville Shores waiting in line to get something to drink
