I FOUND IT!!!!! (read my other BLOG)

Yea so i found my earlier post, Thank you Jesus!! So anyway, have fun reading my ramblings!!
Love ya All

It's not Christmas anymore : (

This is the first year ever that i am actually sad that it's over. Whats wrong with me? This was the first year that things were chill and that we spent Christmas together as a full family (us and the kids) in our new house. I think that made it feel more real. I am sure that it helped that we had been trapped in the house for 4 days straight with barfing kids and a barfing mommy (that would be me). By the time Christmas day came around i was SOOO ready for some fresh air and to get out of the house. Again my hubby stepped up to the plate, he is some amazing guy!! He took care of us and the 3 kids as we got sooo sick. What a trooper, and he managed to not get sick also. WOW!! So we just had a super blessed Christmas and I still have a turkey and all the fixings in the fridge waiting to be eaten. We were supposed to have Christmas Eve dinner here and that got canceled. Anyone up for dinner?

Besides the holidays and the busyness of that, we went to the pink pineapple for my birthday (I know it's been a while since I wrote). Us girls had the BEST time. I think it was my favorite birthday for sure. We started the night by getting my nose pierced!! I finally talked Mike into letting me get it done... so I thought (long story). Then we went to Pat and Oscars then off to good old Starbucks. Then we started the best night of 6 hours of shopping, scrapping, card making and best Friends!! I think I am in love with the girls in my life!! Yes I think I am!! Thank you all who came you guys are the best. We had such a great time that we will be doing that at least once a month, maybe twice if we can talk the hubbies into it. The next date it set for Jan. 11Th!!! Can't wait, start planning those projects now girls!!

So that's about all here I guess, OH I guess I should share something that I have been wanting to write for such a long time and that is all about my favorite thing beside Stampin Up is Homemade Gourmet, I have the best demonstrator in the world and I just wanted to share with you how much easier my life is with these products. I always have dinner on the table on time... well close to being on time every night and I LOVE the meals. It's kinda like Super Suppers or Dream Dinners but SOOOOOO much cheaper. Our family of 5 eats the WHOLE month for only $300.00 worth of groceries. I am a HUGE fan and I signed up for the preferred membership and I get send to my house random meals, all I do is add the ingredients sick it in the oven or my favorite the crock pot, make a quick side and then dinner is ready. Now I LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook, but with 3 little kids I don't have much time for it so this makes my life so easy and with little effort and I still get to enjoy cooking too!! So if you wanna know more message me or comment me about it or check out her web site at or Gina's link (on the right side of my BLOG) to her BLOG with hundreds of helpful tips!! Gina will help you with all your meal planning needs and plus she is the best friend that you will make beside being a great person to help with your shopping needs. Check it out, OK that's all for my sales pitch, look back for more since I am going to start sharing with you all my "crafty" meals. BTW what spurred me to write this is I GOT A BRAND NEW CROCK POT for Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The little things in life that make me so freakin happy!!

Love ya all


OK So I am SOOO F'n sad right now I just wrote the longest BLOG in history and it's gone so here is the gist of it....
Christmas was great
Birthday was SO fun
and I LOVE Homemade gourmet.

Anyway if I get up the energy to write for another 30 minites I will later, I am just MAD right now!!

I am so excited, they are finally done, the Lord is sooo good and faithful!! I only have to address and get postage for one of them and the other has been delivered, oh my gosh i am soooo excited!! Today is a day of rest... well sort of, I gotta clean my house and make dinner for the hubby. Poor guy through this whole thing he has been really supportive... well most of the time. Right now he deserves a clean house and home cooked meal!!

So through this whole thing I also had a meeting (which I almost canceled for being too busy, thank Jesus I didn't) with a dear woman of God that I respect dearly. We just had an open conversation of where I was with the Lord and layed it all out, wow that was a great place for me. Some of you know about my dreams lately also and I told her of my dreams and she really opened my eyes to what the Lord was telling me. It was truly powerful. So to wrap it up the Lord is calling me to a place of higher accountability and relation with him, without the rules and guilt and feelings of unworthiness. He wants me to have a deeper relationship and is begging me to know Him deeper and open up my life to have constant contact with him so that I can battle the spiritual warfare that is going on around me. I am contending for my son to get better and not get sick any longer (which by the way he has a yeast infection and ear infection right now... YIKES). So I just want to thank Cathy from the bottom of my heart and what an amazing woman of God she is and how she has opened my eyes and heart to the Lord. The Lord truly spoke through her that day and I can wait to see what the Lord has for me once I conquer this battle in front of me.

So a lot has been going on but it's this season for these things.

On a more personal note, most of you know also how much I dread the holiday's and this just proves another reason why, my sister is up to her stuff again. We planned on having Christmas Eve at our house with my mom and sister, well now she is doing her own thing and wont come and it's all because she doesn't like me, it's the holidays get over yourself for mom's sake. I love my mom dearly and she is caught in the middle of this stupid feud that I thought was over but will never be over because she doesn't want to let it go!! GET OVER IT!!! So it all is a long story but it just makes me mad when people wont let things go, grow up you are 7 years older than me!!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas season so far. I can't wait for my birthday and Friday!! SO FUN!!! A day when it's all about me!! I know that sounds bratty but when your a mom and everyday is about everyone else I love the thought of a day all about me!!

Love ya all

How can one mom be so excited??

So it's time for my birthday and I am soooooo excited (which I am usually not that excited since Christmas overshadows my birthday) but I have planned a girls night out with my favorite girls, Kelsee, Gina and Carisa. I can't wait it will start with hopefully stopping off at the tattoo shop to get my nose pierced and then going out to dinner with Kelsee and then off to the Pink Pineapple for 6 hours of scrap booking fun!! I can't wait!!! We can even bring in wine coolers, how cool are they!! Anyway Kelsee and I are going to start packing up our stuff now we are so excited!! So anyway, life is god now I just have to convince my hubby to let me get the nose piercing... what to bribe him with.... hmmm a girl has control.

So besides the birthday things are going good here the Lord has really been faithful to me lately and changing my hardened heart and I am so grateful that we serve a God that is patient with us when we are throwing our fits of rage, He is the perfect model of a earthly Father. I have been trying my best to do my devotionals and get into the Word and the Lord has blessed me with patience and an ability to get things done faster and more efficiently. I love it!! He came to me at a helpless place in the shower just asking Him to come from behind the veil that he was behind just waiting and watching me throw my fits, He met me there at my desperate place in the shower. I actually at one point told the Lord I had given up on him and that i wasn't going to try to talk to him anymore, He must have laughed at how ridiculous that must have sounded and me throwing my fit well knowing that it is too natural to have him in my life daily to turn away so easily. So I am just so thankful that I am coming back to a place that seeks Him daily and is devoted to the God that has been waiting for me and never gave up on me.

The Night Before Christmas....

This was sent to me by a friend and I thought how true is this!! Enjoy!!

The Night Before Christmas For MOM's

'Twas was the night before Christmas, when all thru the abode,
only one creature was stirring, and she was cleaning the commode.
The children were finally sleeping, all snug in their beds,
while visions of Nintendo 64 and Barbie, flipped through their heads.

The dad was snoring in front of the TV,
with a half-constructed bicycle on his knee.
So only the mom heard the reindeer hooves clatter,
which made her sigh, "Now what's the matter?"

With toilet bowl brush still clutched in her hand,
she descended the stairs, and saw the old man.
He was covered with ashes and soot, which fell with a shrug.
"Oh great," muttered the mom, "Now I have to clean the rug."

"Ho-ho-ho!" cried Santa, "I'm glad you're awake."
"Your gift was especially difficult to make."
"Thanks, Santa, but all I want is some time alone."
"Exactly!" he chuckled, "I've made you a clone."

"A clone?" she asked, "What good is that?
Run along, Santa, I've no time for chit-chat."

The mother's twin. Same hair, same eyes,
same double chin. "She'll cook, she'll dust, "
she'll mop every mess. You'll relax, take it easy,
watch The Young & the Restless." "Fantastic!" the mom cheered.
"My dream come true! "I'll shop. I'll read., I'll sleep a whole night
through! "

From the room above, the youngest began to fret.
"Mommy?! I scared... and I 'm wet."

The clone replied, "I'm coming, sweetheart."
"Hey," the mom smiled, "She knows her part."
The clone changed the small one, and hummed a tune,
as she bundled the child, in a blanket cocoon.

"You the best mommy ever. " I really love you."
The clone smiled and sighed, "I love you, too."
The mom frowned and said, "Sorry, Santa, no deal. "
That's my child's love she's getting to feel."

Smiling wisely Santa said, "To me it is clear, "
Only one loving mother, is needed here."

The mom kissed her child, and tucked her into bed.
"Thank you, Santa, " for clearing my head.
I sometimes forget, it won't be very long,
when they'll be too old, for my cradle & song."

The clock on the mantle began to chime.
Santa whispered to the clone, "It works every time."
With the clone by his side Santa said, "Goodnight.
Merry Christmas, Mom, You'll be all right.

It's 12:30 and Luke has been crying since 9:30 for no apparent reason. I am so tired!! I hate this part of being a mom!! It's so hard to see your baby crying because something is wrong and you don't know what it is. I am so tired!! Then in the morning I have Jazzercise and then I have to watch my neice till 3. Lord please help her be good tomorrow!!!!!!!

I only have 400 more Christmas and Milk bank cards to do!! I am not very busy and I don't need much sleep right? I have a sink FULL of dishes which I thought the hubby was going to do since he said he would help pick up this weekend so i could get some cards done. I am overwhelmed and I would have LOVED a little help with the house work since all I am doing lately is making cards (which I don't mind doing) and I am watching Shara which latley has been really difficult. I just dont know if I can do ALL these things anymore. A little help Lord just a little!! PLEASE. Today at church was a message on hope and the feeling of hopelessness and all I need right now is a little hope and some rest.

Looks like a break in the crying I better go and try and sleep!! Here's to hoping!! Thanks for letting me vent!!

We have 2 new additions to the Brown family

I know we have done it again, the kids talked us into getting 2 kitty's, we got them from a family at church and so far they are really great with the kids and are super friendly. So just wanted to say hi and let you know of our new family friends. We are also watching my Dad's dog for him and in two days we have added 2 cats and a dog, we are crazy.
Today was a better day, I think the Lord is softening my heart (he needs to) so today with the youth was good. When you don't feel like doing somethign and the Lord opens a door it's ussualy a good thing. So keep praying it's not over yet. Love you all!!
PS the black cat is Belle and the tiger one is Rella

Here are some pictures of Super Play, our favorite place to go!! So I am really excited to say that Kelsee has joined my obsession with Jazzercise and is training to be a class manager!! Yeah!! Also Deb has also came in for a comp class and loved it and will hopefully be joining soon!! I love all my friends loving the things that i love!!

Anyway, I have been in a funk lately and I NEED to get some major girl time in so I am thinking either girl night out or starting something a little more consistant and doing a every other week bible study or get together. So let me know what you all think, I am in some desperate need on "my girls". My walk with the Lord is nearly gone and tomorrow we have to teach the youth and I feel not able to lead in a way that would be Glorifying to the Lord. So all that to say I guess if you want to get together then let's do it and also please pray for me I have lost all desire to even seek out the Lord. Thanks and off to being a mom I go... gotta love life.

What a week...

This week has flown by soooo fast!! Anyway, so we went to Palm Spring last weekend and it went by so fast!! No time to really relax, it was lots of fun but Kylee got really sick at my Dad's and the mom in me kicked in and wanted to mother her to get to her on Sunday and she was a lot better. So we had fun with our friends and here are some pictures of the weekend and our big boys 1st birthday!! Everyday I have the realization that we are not to have anymore kids, today at Super Play I was holding th owners baby and I LOVE babies but the thought of getting up at night and changing frequent diapers and all the feedings, no sleep, no dates, no freedom... I am done, a part of me would love to have another baby but i think I am too selfish at this point in my life and it may change but i hope not i want my life simple again and once Luke starts walking my life will be on it's way to being simple again, then I can put him down outside and we can play as a family. I am just over the "baby" part!! I want him to grow up but on the other hand he is my baby and i want to cherish this time for the last time! But wow what fun we have to look forward to later in life when our kids are old enough to take on trips and go places, oh the joy. So I can but can't wait. I am lucky I cherish every age!!

So enough of that rambling!! I am one lucky woman, i hve the best hubby ever to allow me to do all the things that I do, I do all these Jazzercise meetings and extra stuff and Stampin Up and my own business. He is so supportive and I appriciate all that he does for us!!

So I love this Super Play place!! If you ever want to come with me and check it out please let me know I will be there almost everyday!! I love it and I keep forgetting my camera when i go there, way fun and I love it when Kelsee goes with me our kids play well together and we can chat and stamp!! The two loves of my life!!

So I need to go and start making dinner or at least figure out what we can have!! I will write later!!

OMG this is great...

Ok so i just got back from Super Play Inc. and this place is great!! The kids (including Luke) played for 2.5 hours. It was so great, next time I will take my camera and post some pics. Many of you have gone to Kidsville with me and that was amazing and well priced for what you got, but oh so far away. This is kinda like it but super close but it's a little pricey but for me worth it since I will go often... hopefully. So if you ever want a fun easy play date let me know it's $5.00 per kid since I am a member, I will be there often. It's located in the Round Table Pizza shopping center. Gotta go clean up my daughters pee on the floor, gotta love being a mom!!!!

So here it is...

I was thinking that I need to keep a personal BLOG and then keep my creative BLOG seperate. So here it is!!! I am super excited about my new adventures of trying to get my life organized and on track. I feel that for the past 6 months I have been living in a tornado.

So I am WAY excited about going to Super Play today with Kelsee this (if it's cool) could be the start of getting my life organized and keeping me sane. My goal to go to this indoor playground a couple times a week and let the kids play while I get my "business" stuff done!! Here's to hopeing it's cool and worth the money!!! Please Lord!!

Another cool thing that we have been doing latley is taking this finacial class by Dave Ramsey (the Brown's new best friend). It has completely changed our household and our future. We are so excited to get to a place where life is a little easier!! So I will post more soon but gotta go pick up one of my kids from school!!
