I am so glad that the snow is gone and the Christmas festivities are over. Don't get me wrong I love this time of year there is just so much that goes on that time at home is few and far between.
Christmas eve we had Justice and Adina open their presents from us and that was fun especially watching justice open this year because he actually wanted what was under the paper and not just the paper. Then Christmas morning we did stockings and Santa gifts, then off to Aaron's parents to do it all over again and eat brunch. From there we went to Aaron's aunts and uncles place which was a long drive in crappy weather. We had a lot of fun everywhere. Then off to home. Which took for ever and every idoit was out driving around. We finally got home about 9 and got the kids off to bed. To get up in the morning and head to my mom's house. We all had a lot of fun and I love the holidays with family being able to spend time with everyone. This year at my mom's was different though because my three step sisters were not there, it was less chaotic but I missed them and wished that they could have made it.
I have been trying to take broken presents back and do exchanges and that is the part that I hate to do after the holidays.
Can't wait to do it all over again next year just hopefully the weather will be better and we will not have as much to do since it will be my year which means christmas morning will be at my mom's and grandma's houses and then we will do Aaron's family another day and that will be just his parent's house.
I am sad looking back on last year and how small justice was and this year he is so much bigger and so independant it just makes me think that I no longer have a baby but a big boy and he doesn't need me anymore. Ok I know that is not true but that is just how I feel. I think we need another one now so justice has some one his age to play with and so that Joel and Wendy's baby will have someone born around the same time as that one.
Now that the holidays are over back to normal life and hopefully I will have time to blog more.

I love the snow when it comes and then leaves but I am not one to like it to stay around. Justice has played in a few times but it has been really cold to take a little boy out there to play. I wish that the snow would go away since I am trapped at home. I do not drive a 4 wheel drive vehicle and even if I still had mine I would not drive in this weather. I am bummed today becuase me and Justice were supposed to go to bellingham to my sister ocean's adoption today ( a long time waiting for this day to come), Aaron had agreed to let me take his truck and he would drive the scout and I was good with this idea until I woke up this morning and we had gotten another foot of snow last night, so that destroyed those plans since I don't like to drive in this any way and that much more snow made me doubt that I could do it. I am sure that I could have but nothing is important enough to put my life and my son's life in danger to go somewhere. Ocean I love you and this was important but hopefully when you are older you will understand.
So we are stuck at home again. Tonight when Aaron gets home he will have to drive me around to get my avon delivered. He said that was ok with him, so we will just wait to see when he gets home and go and get my customers their items for christmas.
Yeasterday we went shopping. Justice had gotten money for christmas so I got him a DVD player for my truck so he can watch that when we are out on avon deliveries or when we are going to bellingham. Just when ever to keep him entertained since he is in the car alot more than most children.
I got clothes with some of my money which was needed since I really don't have that many that fit and are nice.
Aaron got a new pair of shoes and Adina got clothes too. We had a lot of fun shopping yesterday and it was nice because not many people were out.
Saturday we did christmas with my dad's side and it was a lot of fun. The kids all had a blast and it was sure nice to spend time with that side of my family since I do not get to do as much of that as I would like.

Today it started snowing. We were at Aaron's parents house and Justice got to have his first snow ball fight with his Uncle Joel and daddy. He had a blast. He then had to go and find every puddle out there to stomp in and just get wet and dirty. Thank goodness I brought his pj's down there so that I could get the wet clothes off of him and put him in something dry and warm
So far this month we have got our shopping done. Justice helped put up the tree and decorate the house and now I will start making some cookies for the many christmases that our family attends. I am looking forward to watching Justice open his presents since last year he did not really care since he was so young and this year I know he cares because he keeps sneeking under the tree to pull presents out to open. He cares about the ones wrapped in sponge bob wrapping paper the most, of course those ones are his too. Go figure. He is a smart little boy, sometimes too smart for his own good, but that is alright I love him and would not trade him for the world.
Tomorrow morning Aaron will be hunting so me and Justice since we are stuck at home since the weather is not something that I like to drive in, we will be playing outside in the snow. Not my favortie thing to do because it is too cold and I do not care for the cold, but I know that Justice likes it so it is something that we will do. Maybe he will sleep in for me too that would be a wonderful surpise that I would cheirsh for a long time. Being a full time mom there is not a lot of sleep but there are sure a lot of rewards to this job.

Ok so I got in the shower. I guess I am not supposed to do that with a little boy up, but I did and this is the mess that he made for me. What a big helper. I love him but there are days that I want to duck tape him to something so that I can get cleaned up for the day and not have to clean the house when I am done.
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
Today I decided that me and Justice were going to decorate for Christmas. I know that it is early but it is something that I thought would be fun. I did not realize how many decorations we do not have. I forgot that we do not have that much so it actually sucked decorating because it was a little depressing that we do not have that much and right now I can not go and buy anything because we do not have the money to do so. Maybe next year we can get some more stuff and make everything look pretty and wonderful for the kids. Justice had fun though and we are waiting for daddy to get home so that we can put up the tree and get it all decorated. I am excited for Christmas this year because I think Justice will have fun opening all his presents and going to the different places to do so.
I never really liked holidays until Justice came now they are something to look forward to seeing his little eyes light up when he gets up in the morning and doing all the fun shopping for things for him. I am so excited to go and get him somethings. I can not wait.
This year will be bargain hunting for presents because money is tight and I can not afford for how many people I have to buy for. Note to self start shopping way sooner next year. I say this every year but it never happens but I am going to make sure that I either start sooner or start to put money aside to do so.
I am looking forward to seeing his face when Santa comes.
Off to make dinner now and to watch some more sponge bob with justice lee.
Saturday started off like any other day, daddy was hunting and me and Justice were hanging out at home. He ate like he always does and when daddy got home he wanted to go out and see him so we did. Justice played outside for quit a while before I brought him in to get cleaned up so that we could go down to Aaron's parents for dinner. When I came in to change his clothes I noticed that he was covered in hives, so off to the doctors. They gave him benadril which worked but we are not sure what he is allergic to which sucks because I would like to know so that we do not go through that again. It was not fun for him or me because he was covered they did go away as fast as they came on though which was nice, so we then went down to the parents for dinner.
Sunday we got up and went to church which I love to do because our church is nice and I really like pastor grant. After church off to nana and poppas for lunch and to play while momma works. The same thing that happens every sunday. Justice had fun and I got a lot of work done for my mom.
Monday we made some avon deliveries and hung around the house.
Today is the same as monday nothing too exciting going on and I think it will turn out to be a pretty normal day.
Thursday, November 20, 2008
So this morning I got told that one of my dogs has beaten the other one up again, so off to the pound for the one since this is not the first time and I am sure it will not be the last. That was the start to a day that began at 4 in the morning.
Then Justice decided to play on my computer like he does everyday, but this time he fell and now has an eye that is almost swollen shut, a bump between his eyes and a bump on his head. What else could this little boy do to himself today?
As I am sitting here waiting for the humane society to open so that I can call and make sure that they have room for my dog since that is what it says to do, she decided to beat up Fat Boy again. It is never ending.
Justice is now down for his nap which was well needed so hopefully the day will get better when he gets up and not worse
Monday, November 17, 2008
Saturday night me and Aaron went out and left Justice home with Aaron's parents which was needed for the two of us to spend some time together. The only thing thought was when we got home he woke up at 2 in the morning and stayed awake and now since Saturday he must not be feeling well because he is not eating and is poopy and does not want to do much. I feel bad and I know it has nothing to do with me not being home saturday it just makes me feel like I did something wrong. Trust me I know that me and Aaron needed some time together with out any kids but it just makes me feel bad though.
Today we did not do much other than hang around home and go to walmart to get wet wipes because one more poopie and I would not have any. Tomorrow we have things to do though and I really hope that he feels better because I do not want to haul a sick kid around. That does not sound fun for me or him, but we will see.
Justice still wants to watch sponge bob all the time and loves anything that has to do with sponge bob which sometimes is nice now that I can turn it on and he will watch it and I might get something done.

So today I put justice down for his nap and with in ten minuets he was in his crib crying and saying puckie( poopie). I thought that he had just gone in his diaper so I thought nothing of it when I went to his crib. Well I thought wrong, nothing new. He had pooped and taken his diaper off and had it on his hand, head and on the crib. That is not something that I would have thought would have happend. So I had to clean him the crib and the walls in his room before I could get him down for his nap. I wish someone would have warned me of these things because then I might have figured out a way for the diaper to stay on.
I am also working on potty training him and that is not working at all. I am not sure what to do, he will sit on it and then when he stands up he will pee anywhere but in the potty. Maybe someday I will not be changing his diapers any more but for now we will be cleaning up messes hopefully no more puckies anymore though.

Lately Justice has not been the easiest to put down for his nap or for bed time and this is not my son. He usually does not put up a fuss. I am not sure what is going on with that. Yesterday the only way he would take a nap is if I held him and cuggled so that what I did. I did not get anything done that needed to be done, but I got to hold my little man which was nice because I know that is not going to happen all the time when he gets older so I really like it when I get to do it now. I love every moment that I can share with him that way.
Saturday, November 8, 2008
So today I heard that Old Navy was having a sale on hats and scarfs and I had a gift card to Khols, me and Justice went out to do some Christmas shopping. Not much but some. At least I can say that I have started now. I always wait to do my shopping and then kick myself because it is so much to do at the last minuet. We went to khols first and got Justice his ornament for this year and of course it is sponge bob. Then off to old navy where we picked up hats, gloves and scarfs for the little ones in my family. They were cute and did not cost very much at all. We then we to starbucks so that I could get my drink and Justice a cup of whip cream.
We then got home where Justice played with his new ornament and I wanted to start decorating for christams but have been told that it is too early to do so, I might just do it any how.
I am now looking to see where else I can go for good deals to get more shopping done.
Friday, November 7, 2008
Not much different has been going on. The same stuff everyday. Justice is really talking alot these days and I love it so much. I wish sometimes he was a tinny baby again just because he was not small for long at all, but it is so much fun everyday with my little man. He is just filled to the brim with energy and keeps me going 24/7. I love every moment of it, even the parts where he makes a mess and looks at me and says "mess" and the only reason that I think that he does this is just to make the mess for fun.
He thinks that he is funny and it is not that big of a deal to me, he has fun and that is all that matters to me that my little guy is having harmless fun. I would not change a thing about my life and the choices that I have made to stay home with him. I could not be more grateful that I have had the blessing to be home with him all the time and I am the one whom gets to raise him and not daycare. Grated being a stay at home mom is more than being a mom it is being a short order cook, maid, dish washer, play buddy, and many many more things. I also work with avon and I love the fact that Justice can do that with me.

Saturday, November 1, 2008
So today has not gotten off to the greatest start. Aaron left at 12:00 last night to go duck hunting with his brother and friend. I hope they get some ducks to bring home. Justice got up about 6:30 this morning so I got to sleep a little but not as much as I would have liked. He then came and watched TV with me in bed for a little while. Then all chaos broke loose. He found the powered sugar and covered himself and the house. The kitchen, dinning room, rocking horse, cars, my bed and the living room all covered. When I walked out I say it and thought that some drug deal went wrong in my house just because of the amount and everything. I have never seen so much of a mess before. I have gotten all the powered sugar up but after washing the floor for the third time it is still sticky, I am running out of ideas of what to do to clean it. I did not expect to have to clean my house this morning since I just did it yesterday, but I guess a clean house is better than a dirty house. Thank you Justice for having me clean the house again.
The other problem is bed and nap time lately. Justice does not want to go to sleep instead he wants to cuggle and I need him to nap and go to bed but instead he stands in his crib and screams and cries and I feel horrible but not sure what to do because he will not fall alseep cuggling or you honlding him.
Wow hopefully the day will get better and no more chaos. I can only hope
With all of today's plans going to poop I decided that it would not be fair to not take Justice out so we went down town and trick or treated where he got a lot of candy and would look and say pease sucker and tank you. It was so cute. Then we went to the outlet mall and did a little more there then it was off to home. Where he wanted to eat more candy but I hid it because he had already had a ton of suckers and some twislers. He did not need more. He then ate dinner, took a bath and was wiped out. He also is sick with a runny nose and a fever so I did not want to keep him up to do anymore trick or treating so at 6:00 I tried to get him to bed but he wanted to cuggle so we went out and cuggled for a while then off to bed where he fell right asleep and I have not heard a peep from him. Poor tired little man.
Aaron just left for hunting so that means a day with just me and my little man tomorrow and then on sunday Aaron is hunting again so the whole weekend just the two of us. I will find some things to do just mommy and Justice.
I had so much fun with him this year and I can not wait until next year where he will be a little older and we will go at night around our neighborhood and to town and make a day and night out of it since it only comes once a year. Oh yeah he was a scarcrow this year and it was so cute, I am already thinking about what he can be next year. I will find something cute but if he had his way right now he would be sponge bob I am sure since he loves that crazy cartoon.

Today has started off to be a good day. Justice got up about 5:30 in the morning with a cold. He got his flu shot and has not been feeling well ever since but that is something that we can bare through. I had a wonderful day planned for the two us trick or treating down town Mount Vernon then off to Bellingham for the trunk or treat but slowly my plans are falling apart.
We are still going down town, justice is a scar crow he is so cute. But the Bellingham thing is off due to everyone that was going with me has slowly dropped off and I do not want to drive all the way up there to do it by myself. So we are going to go downtown then maybe to the mall. We will see how he is doing.
I made my first chili for tonight's party that we are having. I do not eat chili there for I do not make it but I made an exception to the rule. Hope everyone likes it and it tastes good. We will find out tonight.
We will see how Justice does with all this today since last year we did not do much since he was so little, but I am excited.
Wednesday, October 29, 2008
Today has started off to be a hectic day. First we watched sponge bob like every morning then off to the doctor for Justice's flu shot which he did not like at all. Then to take daddy a coffee, then off to whidbey island bank to shut down the accounts that I had just set up yesterday. Then to US bank to reset up my accounts today which I thought that this would not take too long but I was wrong we were an hour and a half past Justice's nap time by the time we made it home, but that is ok he was a good boy and got lots of treats every where we went today. So now we are at home Justice is asleep well needed sleep and I am trying to get somethings caught up on. We will see how the rest of the day goes.
Monday, October 27, 2008
So I have not had a lot of time to keep this up to date. Friday was just a stay at home day where me and Justice played most of the day.
Saturday I had him paint his pumpkin because my son cleaning out the pumpkins and around knifes just scare me I might be a little over protective but that is OK with me.
Sunday we went to church, then went to my grandma's to deliver her Avon and to see her. My dad was there to so killed two birds with one stone, Then off to Nana and poppa's to hang out and work. I got a lot done there and Justice finally took a wonderful nap. Then we headed home so that Justice could help daddy with the wood he went and got. Then dinner and off to bed which did not last Mr was up all night. He is down for his nap now so that I can try to get somethings caught up on and work on my Avon.
I also got to see my cousin whom hasn't seen justice since last christmas so that was nice and I love spending time with the family and with my little man.
Thursday, October 23, 2008
So I have been trying to work on potty training and it is not going as planned. Justice has decided that the potty is something to stand on instead. He puts his little feet where the potty should go and stands on it and I have tried to put him in big boy undies and see if that would work but he wets those on purpose. Back to the drawing board on that one.
So after 27 years of my life I have decided that I hate cooking dinners, so I have now started to make big meals and freeze them so that I will not have to cook every night. I have also started to do this with snacks too, because making them myself has to be cheaper then buying them and I have two boys (Aaron and Justice) whom love to eat goodies so I have to make sure that we have them in the house. Last night I made a roast that cooked in bbq sauce all day and then we shredded it and made bbq hot sandwiches and boy were they good and I froze the rest for another night. I also made two batches of spritz cookies and I am going to freeze them. Thank goodness I have a big freeze in the garage so that I can start doing this.
Other than this yesterday was a pretty good day. Justice wanted to go for a walk in his stroller so we did that and washed and cleaned my truck he sure is a big helper. He talks up a storm to like his momma.
Words he says:
momma, dadda, sister, nana, pappa, puppy, cow, horsey, kitty kitty, potty, bath tub, ponge bob, cookie, go gurt, cheese, nose, mouth, leg, hi, bye,ocean, leah, damian, jaden, jonny, outside, inside, up, nunums, babuse(apple juice) baba, binkie, piggie, poop, car, shut up, boots, sockie, shoe, spoon, please, thank you, bath tub, and I am sure there are a lot more but that is all I can think of right now. He also talks in his own laguage but every little kid does.
Tuesday, October 21, 2008
Today my son decided I think that he wants to be a monkey. He is climbing on the piano, my bed then up the blinds. He is driving me to the funny farm. He has so much energy that I am not sure what to do with it all sometimes. I would love to buy a treadmill and let him run all day to get it out, but I know that is not right.
I love the fact that he has so much energy he just wears me out
Tonight he helpes me make apple crisp and dinner. He sat on the counter and help mix the things together. I love it when he wants to help
Monday, October 20, 2008
Aaron got home yesterday about 3:00 and was Justice happy to see his daddy. After about the first two minuets of daddy being home he acted like he never left. Just bounced from Aaron to me and back and forth. Other than that we just hung out at home and played with Justice till bed time.
Today Justice has figured out home to climb in his crib so now I know that getting out will be no problem so I think it is time to move him to his big boy bed. This should be interesting. We also are starting to work on potty training going well if him not going in the potty but everywhere else counts.
Saturday, October 18, 2008
So about 11:30 last night Justice woke up and wanted to cuggle (cuddle) that was after I changed his diaper. This went on until 4:30 in the morning. I think that he is taking it really hard that daddy has been gone for so long, but he will be home tomorrow. SO with the sleepless night we went up to nana and poppas today so that I could work and visit. After naps we decided to take Justice, me, poppa, jaden, ocean, leah and Jonny all to the pumpkin patch so that they could pick out their pumpkins. That was fun and they all choose the one that they wanted with a little help from either me or poppa.
Then we got back to the house and ate dinner then it was time to head home. Justice really liked the dvd player in poppa's car and it kept him entertained so I think I might look into one of those for him for christmas.
Tomorrow he will be so excited when daddy walks through the door.
Friday, October 17, 2008
Today was one of those days that you wished would just get over. I was tired because Justice got up early in the morning and then did not take the greatest nap. We made our deliveries and played at home most of the day. Justice has really gotten into playing the piano so I heard that most of the day. He decided today that he did not want to sit in his high chair anymore that he wanted to sit at the table in a portable high chair. He ate better there and less food got thrown on the floor so I think that he made the right choice there. He also sat on the potty today for 20 minutes with no diaper on. He did not go potty but at least he sat on there. That is a step in the right direction.
We had a relaxing night before bed watching his favorite Sponge bob. Then he went off to bed where he fell right asleep
Thursday, October 16, 2008
This afternoon after our painting projects we went to Lyman to the Fall Harvest so that Justice could get his pumpkin and just for something to do. He did not like the mud too well, but he picked a good pumpkin and got 2lbs. of apples and apple cider. It was fun and muddy but something that me and him could do together. I think that I had more fun than him but that is ok. I did not realize that it was going to be so nasty out there but we came home and changed and got all cleaned up. Boys are suppose to get dirty and I am not one of those moms that will not let him get dirty and play in the mud.
With Aaron being gone so long I have been trying to find new things for Justice to do so that he is not just missing his daddy so today I decided that we would finger paint. He had a blast and did a wonderful job not sure if more got on his face then on the paper but that is alright. I love watching him do new things because he so interested. We then got him cleaned up for the most part and then moved onto color crayons which he has played with many times in the past.
Wednesday, October 15, 2008
So Aaron has been gone since last friday so Justice has been a big help and not only that he has been very cuddly and clingy so it is taking me a while to get the things done in the morning that normally take me no time at all.
Like every morning lately since Justice has started to watch cartoons, should I say cartoon (he will only watch Sponge bob). I got him on the couch and settled watching his show with his bebe, bubba and a blankie and I ran to get my shower in. When I got out it was way to quite so I grab a towel and came out to the living room where he was not at. He was in the kitchen with a chair. I asked him what he was doing and he said "mama cockie (coffee)." I then looked and he had taken the espresso machine and made coffee with butter. The machine was cover, the cups everything including him. I now wish I would have taken pictures but was not thinking about that at the time. I love the little things that he does to try and help but boy oh boy does he make a mess.
I got him cleaned up and the kitchen taken care of for him to turn around and want baboos (apple juice) and that got dropped and spilled all over the floor. It is a wonderful morning to what hopefully turns out to be a wonderful day.
