Resolutions, Maybe Next year :0)

Last year 2010, I thought about all the could be resolutions for 2011... Like, Exercising daily, watching calorie intake, no soda, not saving big clothes as just incasers, decrapifying my home, living stress free, and soo many others... As a Mommy to 3 little ones 5 and under, I have ZERO time, I mean I have negative time. My kids are with me all the time, even when I should be alone, they are with me, HAHA! So this year I wanted to make myself set some time aside and try blogging at least 3 times a week.. We are 40 days into the new year and this is the second time Ive blogged. I know, I know, I should make time, and Ive tried believe me, I HAVE! Every time I log on to write, I don't feel compelled to write, Id rather read the happenings in your life!!! How do you all do it? Last year I tried writing while my kids slept, and became sleep deprived! This year I wont be doing that again! Ill be blogging as much as I can during the day, rather than at night. We all need our beauty sleep!

Last year my 5 year old started Kindergarten in August. He now has 3 months left of school and has learned so much is such a short amount of time. Here he is at 10 months already loving books. There is just something about hearing your son read a book to you for the first time... Its a beautiful thing!!!

He makes me so proud!

End of last year my lil ladies and I had some fun times. Many many tea parties, dress up days, play-do animal making, baking, and

Life is so fun having girls around. When Carters around hes our waiter, our cook, and bus boy! HAHA!!!

Hailey is a happy baby. She adores her brother and sister!

Although I cant get her to smile or pay attention during pictures, here are a couple of the best pictures i was able to capture.

Hailey would not smile for nothing, or anybody!!!

Happy or Sad

I'm having a hard time grasping how my son will be in Kindergarten in a few days, if he was just born yesterday... The days are long and the years are short, how fast they have gone by...

Now if I can only make it through the first day of school without crying!!!

Piano Hands

It was always a childhood dream of mine to play piano. Never had the opportunity to play, and when I did, I was no longer interested =0(! I will be encouraging (forcing, LOL) my kids to pursue an instrument. I can imagine, after a long day, sitting in front of a piano, unwinding, and playing a beautiful song. Thinking of this reminds me of the many years my Lil sis practiced and played piano. Being able to hear someone play and sing is so beautiful. She has a beautiful voice, even without the piano. God has truly blessed her with overflowing talent.

In the picture above is my darling Hailey at 5 months hitting the keys with her Auntie Melissa.

My handsome son Carter along with my daughter Kaitlyn, and sister Melissa...!

Bow Craze!

There is nothing in the world cuter than a little girl with a bow in her hair.

I made a few and just had to try them on Hailey.
She loved the Pink and green!!! Purdy girl!
Then I decided to try on the green and brown.

As pretty as I thought it was she didn't like it at all.

Loved it.
Green and Brown.

Hated it.

For a 4 month old, she sure does know what she likes and doesn't like!!!

Little princess has chosen, Pink stays, green goes!!!

Finding Furniture---I NEED YOU!!!!!!


How easy was it for you to find the perfect sofa? End tables? Coffee table? Chairs? Any piece that would go into a semi formal living room. How many stores did you leave empty handed?

This is where I am today, yesterday, the day before, the week before, and its driving me NUTS!

I'm searching for the perfect living room, the one that exists in my mind, the one that is functional, grown up and classy at the same time.

I'm searching for a sofa (or two love seats) that has turned legs, rolled arms, and a neutral fabric. I'm also searching for 2 chairs, not sure the kind, maybe something chunky with bolder fabric? I would like to incorporate black & white Damask in where ever I can. I'd also like to get drapes for both windows (not sure color).

Would anyone out there like to help?

I want the room pretty neutral, one day Id like dark hardwood floors. I have a blank slate, One big empty room. About 18ft long 12 wide, Ill measure when I head down stairs. Its a 3 walled room. The far wall has the fire place, and the left and right wall have large windows.

Got any ideas? Ill post some pics of my room soon... Thanks!

Last Sunday, Easter, late agaiN!

My Sweet family Easter Sunday 2010!

We had a wonderful Easter weekend! The kids and I colored eggs, drew Easter
bunnies and hid Easter eggs.
For Easter Sunday we went to church, watched the youth perform a play, heard the children's choir sing and heard a quick message. We decided to eat Easter lunch at Romanos Macaroni Grill. I ordered the Chicken Scallopini! it was DELICIOUS!!!! I love that place! After we were all stuffed we decided to head out to the duck pond. Since we were all nicely dressed it was a perfect time to snap some pictures. Here are a couple of my most favorites... Mommy hugging Carter! Soo Sweet!

Carter full of energy, burning some before we head home.
Daddy and his lil ladies! Hailey never once looked at the camera, ever!!!

Carter is always ready, Katie is easily distracted and Hailey was looking at the birds!

Kailtlyn is twirling

Had to get one of this sweet face! Shes 4 months old now!

Hailey was asleep for this pic =0(!

Katie, Daddy and Carter!

My darling Katie

We had such a wonderful afternoon, then it was time to go home.
