A no good very bad day!

You know those mornings when everything is just crazy. Those mornings when you just wish you could get back in bed and pull the covers over your head. You know its bad when its only 9:00 in the morning and you are already wishing the day was over. Well it has been one of those mornings! The morning started out great. Justin woke me up with toast and juice in hand, and kissed me as he headed off to work. The kids were already awake and he had even changed Karson before leaving. (I know he is a wonderful husband.) Before getting a chance to eat nature calls. When I get out of the bathroom Kam is gone. I find him in the kitchen with honey everywhere. All over the counter, the dish towel the floor, EVERYWHERE. So I get it all cleaned up and heard him back to my room so we can eat, and what do I find.... another huge mess. Karson carrying my juice cup towards me, of course mostly empty, and on the floor. So much for breakfast its now all over the carpet. By the time I get it all cleaned up (I really hate scrubbing carpet!) I am pretty sticky and decide I am in great need of a shower. I put the boys on the bathroom floor with a bucket of toys and shower. Of course the entire three min I am in there I am yelling out the shower door for Karson to get out of the toilet and for Kamden to stop getting into dads stuff. So much for the bucket of toys. Then Kamden zooms out of the bathroom with Justins deodorant in hand. I quickly hop out of the shower and dry off and find Kamden painting the wall with the deodorant. Good gracious. I put Kam on time out and grab my towel to start cleaning of the wall. Suddenly I hear a large thunk, and then the screams of Karson. I am not sure what he bumped into but I found Karson crying with a huge goose egg popping out of his head. So I comfort him and get some ice to put on it then remember Kamden is in time out. I find him still in time out but he now has a pen and is drawing all over his legs.

I give up! For the rest of the day we are going to watch movies and eat popcorn. We are going to play cars and just have fun! Who cares if there is still deodorant all over the walls. At least it smells good.

Apples, Apples and more Apples.

We have been very busy this last week picking, canning, drying, and eating apples. My mom and sister have been helping me and we have been having a lot of fun in the process. Friday we went to Audras house and canned apple pie filing. Yesterday they came to my house and we got all our applesauce done. Kamden has been loving it. He has been such a huge help, or tries anyways. Yesterday he ate a ton of applesauce. I know that everything we made is going to go very fast. It is so delicious! Thanks so much Mom and Audra for all your help!

Last night we went to my parents house to celebrate Austins 18th Birthday. My brother is such a wonderful guy and my kids adore him. We sure love uncle Austy a lot. Happy Birthday! Last but not least, I am getting so excited for Halloween. I just love it. Karson is going to be a purple dragon, and I have yet to find a costume for Kamden. A couple weeks ago I went to get one for him and they were all sold out. Sold out already? So I went to another store and there pickings were scarce. So I guess if I want to find a costume in a store and not on ebay next year I best shop before October 1st. To crazy! And have you seen all those Christmas decorations up in stores already. As for me I will be enjoying and celebrating Halloween in the month of October, not Christmas!

Cannon Rebel back in action!

The other day I finally found the battery to my cannon camera and was so excited to start using it again. I wanted to share some beautiful pictures of a spring storm that were on my memory card. My 17 year old brother took them and I thought he did a great job.

Wednesday my sister and I took our boys to a Winny the Pooh Birthday party at the library. We listened to stories about pooh, watched some movie clips, and acted parts out in the story. There was prizes, and best of all cake! The kids couldn't seem to sit still but they had a great time. It has been a wonderful time living back at home. There is always so much to do, and we enjoy being around family. I guess that is one great thing about living away for eight years, is that when you come back home it means so much! Justin left to Texas early Wednesday morning on a business trip. He will be coming back home late tonight. I have been keeping myself busy making an ABC book for Kamden. I wanted to make something simple and easy for him to look at. I will laminate the finished product and then put together on a ring. That way he can flip through them easily. This is what I have finished so far. Once I got the battery charged up. I took these pictures of the boys. I love the michevious look on Karsons face, and Kamdens messy hat hair. I have the hardest time keeping these two clean. I saw a sign in someones house that had the deffinition of boys it said " Boy,noun:a noise with dirt on it." How true it is!

Soon to come: So many people have requested I post pictures of the inside of our house. I promise that I hear your request and will put a post together with pics soon. Love to all!

Another great weekend.

We had a great weekend up in Island Park with my family. We went up Thursday night and came back home Sunday afternoon. Friday we were able to go to Yellowstone and enjoy some shopping We also went Big Springs and saw the huge fish. It is always so much fun to be outdoors and enjoy the beauty of nature. Especially this time of year when all the trees are getting so colorful. There is something so relaxing about getting away from everyday life and being surrounded by mother nature. Saturday we played games and just enjoyed spending time with each other. While up there we even got to see a moose. It was right in the yard! Later that night Kamden told me " I'm scared of the moose mom." After he told met this twenty or so times I finally asked him why he was so scared of the moose. He said " I scared the moose is going to bite off my ears mom." So funny. It was so hard not to crack up laughing. I have no idea where that came from, but it is funny to see how their little minds work. Here is some pictures of our weekend.
