My Kids!!

 Here is Dakodah. She was born on December 23, 2011. She is such a girl too. Loves shoes, throwing fits, and pestering her brother.
 Garrett is now five and still loves everything his dad does. Shooting guns and bows and their new love blow guns. He starts kindergarten in the fall!
They are the light of my life though. I dont know what i would do without them.

Its amazing how long it has been since i have been on here to share and show off my family. So much changes so fast and you get so caught up in life and next thing you know 4 years have passed. I can not even believe how quickly kids grow up how many jobs have failed me and how lucky I am.

I have been babysitting now since Garrett was 6 months old. I can not believe i am actually a stay at home mom! It is great and a curse it feels like. I have always worked since i moved to college and most of the time 2 jobs or school and one job. Then I find myself a mom and feeling like i need still bring in money so I decided to watch kids. I thought hey how hard can this be. I worked with autistic children i can do this. Now I feel like I have lost myself in the process. It is so amazing how little people think your time is worth and how they don't think you need family time since you are home all day with your kids.

Now I am a mother of 2 and feeling the real need to discover what being  a real good mom intels. My kids needs are put last because i have other kids who need attention to. I have recently decided to cut back and only watch kids part time. I am so nervous about not having that income and so relieved to not have the burden of it anymore. Such mixed feelings and so much anxiety but also so much hope that I can be a better mom. Its almost like being a new mom all over again. I hope it makes me a better wife as well.

So here is to a new beginning! :)

My Biker Boys! :)

So Garrett got His first Harley! He wants to be just like dad and grandpa! He loves this bike so much.

This is the only time I could get him to really look at me! He is turning into a stink!!

Me and Rick got our first Harley too. Dont worry I have only rode once but he promises once he has more practice I can ride!

He is excited even if he doesnt look like it. Isn't he such a stud!

Long Time...

So lets talk about a lazy blogger! Wow so I haven't posted in at least seven months. We moved into our new house the end of September. We love it! It was a work in progress but we finally got the upstairs ready to move in the day before Garretts birthday! I can not believe he is one now and a little shit! He has been walking since October and his new favorite thing to do is jump. We took his bike outside last weekend when we tarted cleaning the yard and now we can not ever get him to come in the house. Me and Rick just had our three year anniversary. Time goes to fast! I am still babysitting in the day and working at Ross at night and weekends. I feel like i never have time to do anything! Well I promise to have pictures up as soon as my computer will work long enough!

Family Pictures

We went to Monroe this last weekend and had Amy Moore do some pictures for us. They turned out so good. I do have to say that Garrett loves to get his picture taken and always looks so cute. Here are just a few of the ones she took.

Grandma and Grandpa have the funnest pirates and ship that Garrett loves to play with. He is very content just to sit and play. Now that he can crawl he doesn't sit still long enough to play so I can take pictures. Here are just a couple of him holding still and playing.

Sleepy Puppy

I got home from work one afternoon and put the baby down for a nap and turned the tv on. I decided I wanted some ice water so I went upstairs to get one and came down and the puppy was asleep on ricks pillow. I thought it was very cute so I had to take some pictures. He loved to have afternoon naps with me when I don't have to work at night. He is such a cuddle bug when he is tired!

He wasn't happy when the flash woke him up!
