5 Days til Christmas?! What the What?! Our week before Christmas.

Does anyone else feel like Christmas just came so fast this year?  We put up our tree early this year a few weeks before Thanksgiving because it just felt right.     It's amazing how the children feel the Christmas spirit just putting ornaments on the tree and listening to Christmas music.

You know the Christmas spirit? The holy ghost that Christ sent to be with us to remember him. To know the truth of all things.  This same spirit has my children in the best spirits and were hugging each other so much while decorating the tree. Super big smiles adorned their faces. It's something I wish I saw all year round.

They've been wanting to fall asleep to Michael Buble's Christmas album (which I love and has replaced my usual Mariah Christmas album) I don't know why I'm saying album, we listen to it on Amazon.  This is 2014.   My husband is burnt out on Mariah, although I love her Christmas CD. :)

This month and week has been filled with festive events. The kids got to…

Recap of April, May and June

Linking up again this week and again, I am late to the party.  It's expected of me now isn't it?  Click the button link if you'd like to play along.

After re reading my recap of Jan, Feb and March, as well as other bloggers posts, I decided that post was extremely depressing and disheartening. I don't like to dwell on those times or feelings in my life.  

Time for the good news in my story this year! April we learned that my husband got the job he interviewed for. Negotiations were settled and our move date would be June. It felt like an eternity and I honestly didn't think it would happen. I thought we would have to move in with family until we could find something.

Finally the good news we had been waiting for! April and May I was still studying and taking classes in school. I was determined to finish my degree by the end of the year.  I was taking care of my two little kids as well as our newborn babe, packing a little at a time.  It was so hard trying to figu…

The Next Big Youtube sensation

My kids love watching Youtube.  My daughter especially loves watching this one channel in which a grown woman stuffs a stocking or a bag with fun little blind bags and unwraps it all on camera.    My daughter always does "videos" as she calls them, sometimes I record her, sometimes I don't and she still pretends she's being recorded.  Maybe it's because I'm here mama, but I think she's got some raw talent.  This is the first video I've actually edited, I think we will have to perfect this!
If you have your kids watch let me know what they think, also let me know if you have any suggestions for us!?
Have a great weekend!

My 2014 Review: It is always worth it.

Emmy's Review Extravaganza is the perfect opportunity to update everyone on what's been going on with us this year. I also have the time now that school is out for the semester. So link up if you want to join in by clicking the button above!

Bare with me as I try to remember the events that transpired in the beginning months of this year. Is it sad that I don't remember that much? I literally have to go back and read my journal.  I will try and be brutally honest however, I don't know how vulnerable I can be or want to be with my life. I can promise to try my best.


How do I start this post off with the most depressing stressful time in my adult life?  I only wrote in my journal 2 days in January. The last two days of the month I was 35 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and second girl. School started for the semester and by the sound of things I was doing pretty well with that.  I learned I had cholestasis which was going to result in inducing baby girl at 37 …
