So, I was trying to figure out what to do with our pumpkins that was kid friendly- no knives ;)  So I asked this lady at walmart if they had anything and she suggested washable paint and let them go to town on them... I thought this was a good idea and knew they would really like it. So this is what we ended up with.

Then when it was all done- I put the pumpkins outside to dry and as they were drying, the paint was flaking off.... washanle paint was not a great idea. So I put them in the sink and washed them off and I was back to square one trying to figure out what to do. I was in the craft section and saw these foam stickers and today we had some fun with them.... these are the final product.


Cookies & Family

Sundays are the days when we make cookies. Anavy, Khloe and Savannah LOVE to help make them... even more than eating them surprisingly.  Its a lot of fun- just me and my girls :)

 We had some family in town and we went to Weber State to see Macy play volleyball.... the girls had a fun time and so did we.

I have to thank the people that offered support, emails, phone calls, voice mails, comments etc about my last post. I was in a rough place that day... I'm not going to pretend I dont have days like that and I am glad that when I do, I always know that I have the support of the ones I love the most. So thank you- you know who you are.

There are just those days when things get chaotic and I get frustrated and the kids are in and out of time out all day and by the end of the day the kids are in Anavy's room playing and I am in tears because I just dont know what to do. Today was one of those days.
I feel like I am not good enough for these girls. Of course I know they are better off with me then where they came from but then again they may be better off with another mom who knows what she is doing.
I just let the frustration build up all day and by the end there is no patience left. And then at that point I  failed that day. I wake up every morning and say to myself, today is going to be better and I am going to keep calm and not get frustrated. It works really well, we have great mornings, but there are only 2 kids at that point. When 4:00 rolls around and I am anxious for Brett to come home, and I am getting dinner started, and they are hyper- ah! It is sometimes too much.

Had to vent.
Wish I was a better mom.
And a better person.
I'm working on it.

My Cute Family

I had family pictures taken on Sunday of my cute little family... they turned out so cute. These girls have become the loves of my life- Second to my husband of course :) They make us so so happy and we are so grateful for them.
