Busy, Busy, Busy

  Its been so crazy here at the house I feel like I haven't had 5 minutes to myself to think.

  We went to a hotel for the night last  week end and the kids and I had a blast swimming and sitting
 in the hot tub. It was nice to just relax and have fun for a day. The next day we went to a rock and gem show at our local museum where the kids got to make  their own arrow head. The show was quite interesting to see. There was so many different rocks and activities going on you weren't sure which way to start.
  I did find a lady who was making her own glass beads. I tried that once,but I'm not as good as her. I did however get some pointers from her and might give it another go this week end.  I'll have to keep you posted.

   Right now, I'm reading the 39 clues series. I must say I'm quite impressed by the action that these books have. I am on the 6th book now. I sure hope those kids win because otherwise it will be a sad ending.
   I'm off to try out a new recipe for peanut butter cookies.

   I just love to bake and cook. So many recipes, so little time!

  Hope you are all having a great week!

I love being a mom!

  I just love being a mom! I say this everyday. My friends ask "isn't it hard taking care of 4 kids?;
I just say no! I love it! I wouldn't change it for the world. Well....if I had more, that would be okay,but we will just let that be for now.

   Now, I'm not saying being a mom is easy by any means, its not. I'm just saying that it is the most fulfilling and frustrating thing at the same time. 
  I can honestly say that my kids and my hubby are my life. No that doesn't make me sad or pathetic or anything else. I have a great support team to help me with anything I wanna do, gonna do or sometimes get pushed into trying.

    For example, my son has been struggling with his math for the longest time, then Bam! he gets it. Watching, that pride and excitement in him for getting the math is just awesome!  Seeing him go around saying go ahead and ask me, then hear him say that's easy, is just unbelievable.

  While I know, there will be more challenges that  I know my family will have to face. Some easy, some not so easy. I do know that we will get through it just fine.

   So if you haven't go hugs your kids or your spouse or even give your loved ones a call. You never what challenges they may be facing.

          Have an Awesome day!

my pets

Along with a cat that is camera shy, we  have another cat and a bunny. We adopted both of these recently from the shelter. They are both awesome! I'm not gonna lie, I love them just as much as the kids do.

We have another cat also,but she is being shy. so here is a little peek  into my life so far. I'm off to work right now. I'll post some more goodies later! Hope you have a Happy Day! :)

I just love to read! Right now I'm reading Once in a Blue Moon by Leanna Ellis. This book is a little out of my normal reading  style,(romance) I'm really getting into the book.  I've been introduced to music by Helen Reddy, who I have to say I love her music style. I've also been introduced to a play that I haven't read. I have the play on hold for me at the library!

So far, I'm liking this book! More about this book later!
