Good bye 2009, Hello 2010

well it is officially midnight on New Years HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

Well as most of you are out enjoying the new year I am here at home typing on my blog ( YEAH ME!!! )

I or I should say WE never go out on New Years ( to many drunk drivers) but this year I have a very sick Darling hubby so we stayed in, watched movies, and had soup and grilled cheese Sammy's. ( yeah I so know you are all jealous wishing to eat fancy food like me )

but alas its a new year and with the new year I have many changes I want to make first CHANGE THE BLOG LAYOUT then work on my resolutions.

I vow to lose atleast 50lbs, so that in Oct when we go on our very first Family vacation I can actually enjoy it.

Plus I have this secret desire to run a marathon and the only way that is going to happen is if I get into shape. SO this coming year I am going to be posting pictures of my weight. Now I warn you in advance they will not be pretty pictures, but they will show my progress. This way if I look as if I am slipping you all can encourage me to get back on the horse so to speak.

So to all of you I wish you a happy healthy loving year. May the Lord bless each of you in your lives.

WHERE DID MY LITTLE ANGELS GO?????

Ok call me crazy, but I SWEAR that someone stole my children... ( I am not kidding, before Christmas I had 2 sweet loving well mannered boys ) now that Christmas is over HOLY COW!!!! I swear they done lost their minds...
I want to blame it on the Wii, Darling hubby on the other hand says its NEW AND EXCITING FOR THEM... well DUH!!! but does that mean its ok for my little angels to reveal their HORNS??

I mean here is an example We got them the Wii as a family gift, I was all for it I mean its exercise right? Well darling hubby bought the LEGO STARWARS game and they were running around killing these people with thier light sabor AND LAUGHING ABOUT IT!!!
I was like WHAT THE HECK??? I never let them play with toy guns and such but apperenly its INBREAD in little boys.

Little Boys = FIGHTING AND VIOLENCE....

I just want my sweet anti violence monkeys back....

Did you know?

More wars start and more people die in the name of Religion than anything else?

Its true, and after the last few days on BF I swear its gotten UGLY... I have seen more ugliness and hatred in the last week from grown adults than I ever thought imaginable.

Holy freaking cow batman!!!

I just wonder when I see these mean heated topics get outta hand, WHY? what is it that makes grown adults turn into little children pointing fingers and saying mean hurtful things. And then as if that were not bad enough to attack ones character and the way they live their lives.

I guess this is just another example of Satan getting a hold of people.

I remember when I first started going to church I thought MAN THOSE CHRISTIANS HAVE PERFECT LIVES... THEY DON"T HAVE A CARE IN THE WORLD...

Boy was I wrong. I found out first hand, the closer you walk with the Lord the harder Satan attacks.
Like I said at the begining ( or maybe I didn't ) either way I am fairly new at being a Christian I grew up in a home where there was NO religion. So being a Christian I thought that IF YOU WHERE NOT CHRISTIAN YOU WERE GOING TO HELL....
I don't believe that anymore. I mean I know the Bible says the only way to heaven is through Jesus, but what about all the folks that have NEVER heard of him. ARE THEY GOING TO HELL?

I like to think that just because they do not call him JESUS maybe they call him FRANK or BOB its still JESUS to them.
( I am sure this makes NO sense to any of you ) but trust me in my head it makes PERFECT sense.

So I just ask that all of you that are on a forum or Blog stop and think before they hit POST

would I want my child or myself to be spoken to like this? and if the answer is no then maybe you should revise your post. After all we all want the same in our lives no matter what religion or non religion you are.

WE ALL WANT TO BE HAPPY AND BE TREATED WITH RESPECT.

This is going to shock you!!!

But I am SOOOOO sick and tired of folks feeling its their right and duty to JUDGE OTHERS... BACK OFF AND GET OFF THAT HIGH HORSE YOU ARE ON....
NO ONE and I mean NO ONE is perfect. so for all of you on BF that feel the need to judge others SHAME ON YOU....

Ok Im done...

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and remebered to give thanks to the Lord for the best gift EVER...

I have made a few reselutions and I am going to TRY and keep atlease one of them.
( I figured if I make enough reselutions I am bound to keep one RIGHT??? )

So I am asking you all to tell me your reselutions. then if we break them together we will not feel so bad.

Going on a PROPER Date... YEAHHHHHH!!!!!!

ok My darling hubby and I have not been on a proper date in ages... Were we live we have really don't have a whole lot of folks that we know well enough to babysit, and the ones we do I feel horrible asking them seeing how they have their own kids.

And to ask a teenager to watch my boys WILL NOT HAPPEN. FAR to anal and protective for that. ( its a real trust thing for me )

So seeing how my mommy and daddy are visiting they are watching the boys so we can go out to dinner.

I mean to have an entire meal where I do not have to cut up someones food, or tell someone to hush they are too loud or chase a stray crayon that fell to the floor. Oy vey what is a girl to do?

So after I get off work Darling hubby will pick me up, we will go out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant ( darling hubby LOVES Mexican ) then we will head off to that place that I hate SO MUCH.... the dreaded STORES... to finish up Christmas Shopping. ( I am thinking A margarita MIGHT need to be in play for the last part of tonight. )

But I am super excited. I mean time alone with darling hubby is JUST WHAT THE Dr. ORDERED.... I miss him, I mean I see him daily, but I don't get to be with just him. there is usually two little monkeys all over us.
So I say grab your sweetie and find a sitter and go out on a proper date.. Not only will you love the time with your hubby, but you will find that it will enhance your marriage. Trust me... I KNOW ALL!!! =)

Scarves for the Homeless

Well Tis the season to be jolly... and GIVING.....
Every month we go to our local homeless shelter and feed the homeless. We have been doing it for 1 year now and LOVE IT.... the boys ask every Saturday
" ARE WE GOING TO THE HOMELESS SHELTER TONIGHT? "

Not only do I get a sense of peace when I am there, but to actually see my boys interact with these men and woman melts my heart, Reminds me that I HAVE SOME PRETTY SPECIAL LITTLE BOYS.. ( thank you GOD )

Well tonight is one of those nights and not only are we doing a fancy shmancy sit down type ( they usually go through a line and we serve ) we are passing out gifts, This year it will be the essentials like socks, toiletries, a bible and other goodies we are also handing out hats and scarves that have been both hand made and bought ( they were all supposed to be hand made, but with running here and there and teaching my boys. working and everything else life throws at you, we had to break down and go buy some. )

Logan asked me first thing this AM " Are we going to the shelter tonight to pass out the hats and scarfs? "
I said Yes and he was SUPER excited. He said "I like that we can help them mommy"
and this is the REASON we go... TO GIVE UNTO OTHERS....
So I ask.. No I IMPLORE you to go out of your comfort zone these next few days and DO UNTO OTHERS... whether its buying a coffee for someone that could not otherwise afford one, pick up and extra scarf or hat and keep it in the car and give it to someone you see on the street that needs it. Do something ANYTHING to show your children and self that

it is ALWAYS better to GIVE than to RECEIVE...

God Bless you all.

Deck the Halls with Stegosauras!!!!

Yep you read that right. I am sitting at work right now listening to Dino Holiday. its basically all Christmas music that has had the words changed to include Dino's. It's actually rather hysterical.

We also have some pretty amazing Dino ornaments that are real cool. And you know nothing says Christmas like a T-Rex. GRRRRR!!!!! =)

Well I don't know about you all but I swear December has FLOWN by. I swear it was just Thanksgiving. Oy Vey....
and to top it off I have not done ANY shopping. Darling hubby has done it all.

( does this make me a bad wife and mommy? )

I just really truly hate to shop. Its the WORST.... I know huh?????
So now I have to bite the bullet and actually go shopping tomorrow with my monkeys to buy daddy something. ANY IDEA'S?????

I am at such a loss, I could get him some tools, the man loves tools, but I always get that, I was hoping to get him something unique and different. again ANY IDEA's?

Well I hope and pray you all have a nice warm day and have fun snuggling up with your loved ones. Don't let a minute pass without telling thoes around you that you love them and admire them.

Heaven has two more beautiful angels today

Last night was full of tears. I found out a school friend of Logan's from his old private school went to be with the Lord the day before, He as a week shy of his 10th birthday,
Nick was a very sweet boy who loved the Lord and his friends. He will be greatly missed. We have chosen not to tell Logan. It has been 2 years since he has seen him and I just know he would not handle it.
Nick past from complications with swine flu. I pray that you all say a prayer for his family.

Then I get on today and see that Andrew has also went to be with the lord. Andrew was an amazing kid, If you never followed or read Bell~Mella's blog than you truly missed a great opportunity to see Grace and Faith at its finest.


This is such a sad day for us left here to ask WHY, but a glorious day in Heaven.

Lord Please be with these families. Let them know they are in our deepest prayers and hearts.

To Give or Not to Give

That is the Question....

Well I was informed that my boss bought me a gift for Christmas, Now My boss is a sweet lady and well NOT HURTING FOR MONEY... So I was first shocked then excited but then I thought CRAP now I gotta get her a gift. WHICH NORMALLY IS NOT A PROBLEM BUT I REALLY don't know here very well and she has EVERYTHING... so I am at a utter loss on what to get her.

SO I thought OK I will get her a nice bottle of wine and a box of Chocolates. Does this seem OK? Or should I get her something more?
So I need HELP..... She is Jewish and yes she does celebrate both holidays. so that's not a issue.

SO PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY HELP!!!!

Thankful for Blogs

I am thankful for blogs for a few reasons.

1 - I always have a hoot reading others stories and laughing
2 - I love to look at the photos you all post
and
3- Becuase I get reminded so often while reading them that I need to take time out and just be a mommy and be thankful for the gift of my beautiful boys that the Lord has blessed me with to raise.

so THANK YOU ALL MY BLOG FRIENDS. YOU ARE ALL A BLESSING TO ME...

Where on earth do the hours GO???/

I want to know where all the hours in the day go? I swear to goodness I am losing my brain. I have SOOO much crap going on that I swear if i didn't have a bladder that reminded me to go to the little girls room I doubt I would ever go...

Well Its the Holiday season and I am TRYING to RELAX and enjoy the moments. Life is FLYING pass me and my boys are growing so fast that i am going to blink one day and they are going to be grown and married and have kids of thier own.

I read ALOT of blogs when I have the time and I read one tonight that made me sit back and really think.
I DON"T WANT TO MISS THESE MOMENTS WITH MY FAMILY... I am vowing to spend more time with my boys and LESS time on the puter, watching TV or just running around to all these different activities that I THINK my kids NEED TO PARTAKE IN.. When in all honesty the only thing they need to partake in is Church, and school. the rest is just usless fillers.

I want to wake up with my little monkeys snuggling next to me. I want to hear them giggle till they can't breath. I want to smell their sweetness. I want to be thier mommy and they my little monkeys FOREVER....
