DO YOU KNOW WHAT TOMORROW IS?

I Do.... MY MOMMY AND DADDY WILL BE HERE..... can you tell I am a tad excited....

so we went to Disney on Ice on Sunday with the boys it was ok but not at all what I thought it would be like. We went to Disney Princess on ice years ago and that was WONDERFUL... so I was hoping this would be like that but alas it was not.

anyhow we snapped lots and lots of pictures only to realize later the memory card was at home. GRRR!!!!!

well the weather has been AWESOME. nice and cool and not HOT or HUMID... I LIKE IT.... today it was 64 and I was in caprice a tank and flip flops and you would have thought it was 19 degrees out everyone was all bundled up in jackets they probably thought I was on crack... but even the boys had shorts on and they were fine... i swear these darn Texans are WIMPS.....

Soccer is DONE WITH

OK so today was the very last soccer game of the season and all I can say is THANK THE LORD.... it was freaking cold out there that early....
Of course the game today was against the one team that I can't stand the coaches they are WAY TO COMPETITIVE I had words with him last time we played them... the only difference was today's game the parents got the chance to play with the kids and even their parents were to aggressive I had to tell the REF to tell the parents to LET THE KIDS PLAY....

I had one man like bowl Logan over and thankfully Dan and Susan were there cause MOMMY WAS ABOUT TO ATTACK HIM.... I politely said DON"T BE HURTING MY CHILD I WILL TAKE YOU OUT......

So that's that till next year... Now we are on to Basketball. I have Brae's practice on Thursday from 6-6:45 then I have to race across town to Logan's practice at 7 then on Saturdays we have Brae's games at 8 O' Freaking clock then Logan's at 10 OY VEY.... I guess I can kiss my Saturday sleeping in GOOD BY....

But onto a fun note we are taking the boys to see Disney on Ice tomorrow and then Monday we will do a bit more cleaning them Tuesday mom MOMMY AND DADDY WILL BE HERE.... I don't know who's more excited Me or the kids... Probably the kids..... but they will be here for over a month.... I can't wait to spend the time with them.....

I love my boys....

So if you have been reading my blog you noticed that I was MIA for awhile. BUSY and STRESSED.... Anywho my last blog was about me trying to teach the boys about the true meaning of Christmas... Well this past Saturday at church I had forgotten that the 3rd Saturday of the month members of the church go to a homeless shelter and feed the homeless. and all of a sudden a light bulb appeared over head... ( really it did you should have seen the looks on folks faces.)
so Nolan and I thought it would be a good idea to go and have the boys help....


can I just say WHAT AN AMAZING THING..... it was the best thing ever. At first I was a tad nervous not knowing what to expect. and if you know me I am a control freak and very outgoing and a tad assertive. Anywho we get their we told the boys what we were doing Logan of course was full of questions. Brae was I DON"T WANT TO AND I AM HUNGRY.... ( leave it to Brae to be blunt)

well it was a slow get go we all just stood around and felt like a outsider. So I thought what the heck I need to be an example to my kids and make the first move. I walked up to a group of men at a table and said

HI I AM MINDY I AM SO GLAD TO MEET YOU.... they told me their names shook my hand and the boys being who they are and constantly glued to my side followed suit.
we met some amazing people and even sat with them and ate dinner. the boys felt right at home and started to run around and play with them and talk to them as if they were old friends.

the best part of the night was when we were at home and we were praying with the boys before bed and Braeden added them into his prayers and Logan asked if we can go back the next day...

GOD IS GREAT......

THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR





OK so if any of you have the chance to take your child to a show I recommend it. Last Friday the theater in town was putting on a play the VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and it was WONDERFUL....... I recommend everyone take their child.

The boys had a blast. Logan asked if we can go see another play so I am keeping my eyes open for another play that I can take him to. brae would probably not do so well at a actual play but Logan loved it.

Logan's Art Show



These were taken last week at Logan's show he did such a good job for being his first time... Now this week the boys start a class together doing crafts. They are sooooo excited.. Ms. B is an amazing teacher and so patient with the kids.

Braeden's Art Show




These were taken a few weeks back at Brae's art show, he was sooooo proud of the work he did he could hardly wait to show daddy.....

It's beging to look alot like Christmas..... here in our house.....

Yes we have officially started decorating for Christmas. I am sooooo excited I love, love, love my Christmas decorations. There is just something about a house being decorated for Christmas that puts an instant smile on my face.

Well Logan's team won the soccer game on Saturday 3 to 2 and then we did some yard work the rest of the day until it was time for Church. then Sunday was spent relaxing and doing more yard work and getting down Christmas decorations.

Nolan went to the Dr on Friday has a sever sinus infection. and so Saturday using the blower to blow the leaves and rake just aggravated his and my sinus then on Sunday today we burned and all the smoke I swear my eyes are on fire and my nasal passages are icky... I swear I need a Netty pot to clean my sinus out.

the boys and I got the tree up not decorated but up and a few decorations we will finish up tomorrow and I have to take Nolan to the eye Dr in the morning. the Turkey dropped his glasses then stepped on them and broke them and he is as blind as a bat so I will be taking him in the am to get new ones.

I swear I will teach them

OK so I am not sure about the rest of you but this week alone we got the Etoys Big toy book and the Walmart big toy book in the mail and my boys were INSANE about all the toys. and ALL they want for Christmas. We were actually driving to Kinko's and I was listening to my boys say

OH THIS IS AWESOME I AM GETTING THIS AND I AM GETTING THAT FOR CHRISTMAS

and I wanted to PUKE..... I have talked to my boys everyday about how they need to me thankful and appreciate what they have that there are small children that don't have anything. And every year we discuss what Christmas is about. So after listening to them go on and on I told them I was disappointed in their behavior.

Now I am sure you all will think I am to hard on my kids that they are just excited. And I am not dumb I know they are. But there is no reason they can't be excited and still have some grace. I refuse to have kids that are materialistic and spoiled I will so drill in the meaning of giving and love into their little brains if its the last thing I do... My boys will know that Christmas is JESUS BIRTHDAY and that is why we celebrate the Holiday.... So I am taking my boys to a soup kitchen to help feed the homeless and they will be donating toys to Compassion's Ministry to understand it if far better to give than to receive.
