I'm reading a book called "Confessions of a Scary Mommy" my sister gave it to me. I think I have vented one to many times to her about how I'm not really cut out for this mommy crap, because she said this book made her think of me. Well so far I feel like I wrote the book. I am so glad I am not the only person that feels this way about motherhood.
I think my Favorite line from the book is when she says " I kiss my young teenager good-bye in the morning as she leaves for school, rising above the hormone-fueled snarling and histrionics. Then I close the front door and flip her off with both hands."
I think I do that daily behind the back of my 2 and 5 year old. It makes me feel better and I am all about just making it through the day. Judge me go ahead. ;)

Awww Motherhood. I have a love hate relationship with it. It's mostly my fault why that is. All growing up I wanted to be a mom. If anyone asked me what I wanted to be that was my answer. I wanted 10 kids to start out with then it was 8 but then by the time I got married it was 5. Well I have 3 and that is plenty.
I dreamed I would have kids and we would be baking cookies and playing games. Going on walks in fields of flowers holding hands. No fighting ever involved in our day. I thought I would live on a big farm and me and the kids would go out and work in it every day with smiles on our faces. I would cook every meal I would only weigh a 100 pounds after my 10 kids i had just given birth to. My husband would come home from work and think that me wearing cut off sweat pants were the sexiest thing ever and he would swept me off me feet.
HAHAHA I'm not even kidding that that is what I thought it would be like.
Well the only thing that is close to that fairytale is baking cookies everyday which leads me to not being my dream 100 pounds and leads to me wearing sweat pants cut offs everyday which sadly my husband doesn't find sexy. At all.
Don't get me wrong I love being a mother. I just thought it would be a lot easier.
But my 3 cute boys have taught me a lot. And I am so grateful for my husband who helps me through it every day. But this year I am determined to make it as close a fairytale as I can, even if it kills me. (maybe as an evil witch, which is still part of the fairytale, right)?

This has been my project the last month. I wanted to sell my table (which started out the all brown) then I thought painting it would be a good project for me. Juddy built me the bench to add to it. He did an amazing job. I feel like I have a whole new house... We have started a new project and will post when done. YEAH!

So I thought it would be fun to start my blog back up, and now I remember why I stopped blogging before. OH YEAH we are boring. We don't do anything but work, bake, and eat. I started thinking what is wrong with us, but you know what thats how we like here at our house. When we are actually home together, Juddy and I like to just stay home and hang out with our kids. So I may have the most boring blog out there - but that's us. :)

Seriously Abe is one of the weirdest kids I've meet. But weird in a good way. I'm not sure what to think when he tells me about the ghosts in his room. I hope he has a really active imagination. He hasn't slept in his room for the last couple of months because of the ghosts and robots that are in there. Last night he told me there are flying monkeys. He talks and plays with these things during the day, but at night he is scared and sleeps on the couch. Should I be worried??
His favorite word is CHICKEN. He loves to says it when he is mad at someone. I hear the word CHICKEN about 100 times a day. The bad thing is when he is getting in trouble and he yells back this to me "stop yelling CHICKEN, you CHICKEN. You are smelling like a CHICKEN, you CHICKEN. Get out you CHICKEN CHICKEN head." Seriously Abe. By the end of that sentence I'm laughing so hard he's off the hook.
He is the funniest dang kid. I love his cute face. AWWW Abe I love you.

I felt like I need to brag about how awesome my kids are and stuff so I started my blog back up. That's why we blog right, to brag. Lots of stuff going on in our family. Juddy and I are both working less but I feel like we are busier.
Juddy's band he plays in, Erik the Red, have been playing alot. The kids love going to watch them play. I love going to watch them play without the kids.
I ran the St. George marathon in Oct, which I am totally bragging about. But what I am not bragging about is my time I got, lets just be glad I finished.
In July we all went to Washington to visit family for 2 weeks. Juddy fished alot, me and the kids hung out with family, and Juddy and I were able to get away to Cannon Beach OR for a night with no kids.
Luke started 1st grade and I was sad that he was going to be gone all day, but that lasted one day. Now counting the days for Abe to be in school all day.
