I am so good at checking other people's blogs to see what a great Christmas everyone had and how cute their kiddos looked in Christmas Pj's but apparently not that great at posting my here goes, a few days late. Merry Christmas

Not Me Monday


Ok -time is flying by with Brooke out of school and Ayric off work. I was truly surprised to find out today was Monday-it's hard to keep up. So here are some things I would have never matter what day it is-

I most certainly did not forget to lock the wheels on the double stroller..(aka the tantrum wagon) and while my middle daughter was getting on the table at the doctor, bump the stroller and accidentally completely fold the stroller in the small doctors waiting room...with my 8 month old baby strapped in. I hurriedly try to get the stroller back up so I could get my scared, screaming, yet virtually unharmed baby out. She did have a mark on her forehead where the little snack tray collided in the unfortunate incident but seemed not to notice. What kind of whack-job must someone be to do that!

When taking my poor poodle to the groomer they would never charge my DOUBLE because we had waited so long to bring her in. (I really wish I had a before shot) I would never have to put a ponytail on top of her little head so that she could see. They also did not inform me that the rescue people were in asking if she needed a home. That would not be my experience at the dog groomer because I take perfect care of all my kids and animals. (I promise we love her)

I Make Bracelets

Funny-it is amazing how many people I have known for years will get my business card or find out I make bracelets that have no idea. Recently I have gotten orders from friends, etc and thought well maybe I should let everyone know. I make bracelets. Mommy bracelets mainly, but I do other stuff by request. For example, grandma bracelets, cancer awareness, school colors, picture frames. Well, you can see for Shoot me an email

They are also on display at Graham Crackers, (childrens consignment in Wake Village).

It's not too late for Christmas, especially if you are local. I can mail UPS and it will get there also.

Oh and we have been struggling on a Christmas Card...3 kids smiling harmonioulsy-haha

So here are some from the photo shoot we are NOT using. I decided you can't really see what they look like under all the hats so we opted for indoor shots...wait and see!

So this was going to be titled, Who Needs Snow? Hence all the leaves, sled, and gear. But didn't really turn out as planned. Oh well. don't sweat the small stuff right?

Not Me Monday!


It's Monday-back to school after the long break. I had forgotten how nice it was to not have a kindergartener that had to be taken and picked up from school ;) We all miss the days of sleeping in, especially when it is so chilly out! Anyway... here are things I definitely did not do this week-

After 5 trips to the doctor in just 6 days, 6 prescriptions, 2 xrays, 2 shots, 1 strep test, and a breathing machine later-I did not have to keep telling myself, "I will miss all this one day, I will miss all this one day, I know I will!"

When my husband wrote "CLEAN ME" in the layer of dust on our furniture last night, I did not politely comment back with "NO" in my own dust writing.

I did not get up,no STAY up rather, (no sleep to be had this week with the sickies) and drive to Wal-mart at 3:30 AM to try and buy a Barbie Jeep for Blaire. As I watched the crowds I did not think about the post I would write to commemorate all the Black Friday, hmm "Shoppers". Not me, I don't experience life through my blog ...ha

And I most certainly did not let my oldest have an oreo with breakfast because I was literally too tired to care. This is after earlier in the week trying to sneak garbanzo beans in her mac and cheese for protein. (A no-g0 BTW!)
