Welcome to a large family. I have another birthday party to go to today. We will be leaving when Justice gets up from his nap to go to Lynden to my little sister Jaryn's b'-day party at the skating rink. I am looking forward to this because last time we had a party at the skate rink I could not skate because I was pregnant and huge. This time I get to skate and my little man will get to skate for his first time. This should be fun and I am really excited.
My grandma got her back glued back together the other day and is doing better she says. I can not wait for her to be back to her old self and to get some pictures of her and Justice this year.
For now I need to start getting things ready so that we can leave when little man gets up

I found this on another blog and it is words to live by, so I put it here for a reminder for me to live by these rules and to teach Justice to do so also.
Always use soft words, even when you don’t feel well.
Always display kind actions and joyful attitudes, even if you have been mistreated.
Have the right response by quickly forgiving others in your heart even before they ask.
Always be enthusiastic and look for opportunities to praise others' character.
Always deflect praise and be grateful to God and others for the ways they have benefited your life.
Always use manners and be respectful of others and their belongings.
Always do what is right, even when others may not, or when no one is looking.
Thank God for how He made you, for what He has given you and everything He allows you to go through. (Romans 8:28)
Don’t mock or put others down. Develop compassion and pray for others.
Never argue, complain, or blame. Quickly admit when you have done wrong and ask for forgiveness (even if you were only 10% at fault). Don't wait till you’re caught. Be sure your sins will find you out. He who covers his sin will not prosper, but he that confesses and forsakes it shall find mercy.
Have a tough accountability/prayer partner to daily share your heart with and to keep you in line (your parents, spouse). The power of sin is in secrecy.
Be attentive and look for ways to serve others with sincere motives and no thought of self-gain.
Think pure thoughts (Philippians 4:8, Romans 13:14).
Always give a good report of others. Don't gossip! Never tale-bear unless physical harm will come to someone. (Use Matthew 18.)
Never raise a hand to hit.
Never raise a foot to kick.
Never raise an object to throw.
Never raise a voice to yell.
Never raise an eye to scowl.
Use one toy/activity at a time. Share!
Do your best to keep your surroundings neat, clean and organized.
Never let the sun go down on your wrath. (Don’t go to bed angry or guilty)
Amendment J.O.Y. -
Put Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last.
My first party went wonderfully last night. I had three wonderful hostess and we had so much fun. There were I think at one time there 30 people. I can not complain it was a 800 dollar party and I had almost everything they wanted there with me so I do not have to pick up that much for them. They got to take their jewerly home with them last night. I love this company and can not wait to get some more parties on the calendar.
Justice had a blast at daddies work when I dropped him off so I could go and do my party. Today we both are tired since little man after I got home was up most of the night which sucked but at least I got to cuddle with him. He is down for his nap and I am working right now and need to get a lot more done today just not sure where I want to start and how much I am really motivated to do.
Thursday, February 26, 2009
Today we started the day as any. Got up I got in the shower and Justice wanted to take a shower too, so he joined me. Then off to take Aaron a coffee at work, then to the bank. Now we are home and Justice is napping. I just got done ordering a cake and booking a room to have his party since my house is not big enough for my family, let alone my family, aaron's family and friends for little mans second birthday. Later today justice will get to go to daddy's work and hang out there and I am going to go and do a jewerly party. I am so excited and Justice will have a blast with daddy since he always wants to go inside and play anyways. I am looking forward to tonight, hanging out with women and making money at the same time.

today we are hanging out at home because I do not feel well. So far today I have checked on blogs, justice is down for his nap, laundry, dishes cleaned the floors and started working on cleaning my bathroom. Tonight I will be working on Avon since my order needs to be done in the morning. I will also be getting ready for my party tomorrow night. I really need to go birthday shopping for my little man this week since his birthday is next weekend. I have a lot that I need to do just no time and no energy today to do it. Maybe I will get some of this done later. I will get back on later and type more Justice is waking up so need to go and get him up and make him lunch.

so Justice decided today that he wanted to get into the butter. I am not sure why he did this but it happened twice so a bath and a shower for my little man today. Let me tell you butter is not easy to get out of hair. It still is a little greasy and we will just deal with it. I have been letting justice play in the water in the kitchen sink since one day I was gone and daddy let him help with dishes now he likes to do so, never thought it would come to this though. Oh well just another mess to clean up nothing different from any other day in my house. It seems that every time I turn around there is some kinda mess to clean up.He did not really get in trouble since I wanted to take pictures of it and I was laughing so I thought it was not nice to punish him if I was laughing and taking pictures. I just got him undressed and put him in the tub. then it happened again so we went in the shower. So today we have gone through his day time clothes, two sets of jammies and now he is down for bed. No wonder why I am always doing laundry
So I got home last night and found out that I won again another prize on a blog. It is a shirt from
I am so excited. These shirts are adorable and they come from Mommystars.
These shirts have your children names on them. They are so cute and I can not wait to get mine. Thank you to Jamie's Precious Peas and Mommystars.
Ok so one another note. Yesterday me and Justice ran around and did a lot of errands. Then we got home and ate dinner and I got ready to head to the show room for Cookie Lee. I really wanted to go last night because it is fun and they were having wonderful sales. I also got my first sign up and got my $1000.00 towards my quick start bonus so now I am waiting to get my free jewerly and starter pack. I love this company so much and it is so fun to do jewerly shows that are laid back and no presentations just take the jewerly and everyone shops. I wish I could get more ladies into this company but that will come. The nice thing about this company is that I can sign anyone up anywhere and it does not have to be face to face so I can get people in other states.
Today me and Justice are just hanging around home since I am tired and do not have a lot of energy yet. Hopefully that will change now that I finally got in the shower and dressed for the day. Justice is down for his nap and I am going to try to pick up the house and do a few things before he gets up.

Sunday we went to church and then did our running around seeing all my family who live in bellingham. It was fun and nice to see everyone, then like always we went to my moms for lunch, nap and for me to get some work done there. When we got home we just hung around the house until it was time for Justice to go to bed then I watched some TV and went to bed myself.
Today we made an avon delivery, went to the bank and trying to collect my cookie lee party orders so I can pick up the items tonight when I go to the showroom. I need to leave tonight around 5:30 so Aaron will be in charge of bed time tonight. Then this week I have two cookie lee parties and hopefully will get a lot more on the calendar. I would love to do some parties for people out of state by mailing the books and then them getting the orders and money and me mailing the items to them but that will come I know.
I love being at home wuth my little man and I would not change that for anyone in the world.

Ok, so those of you who do not know my and my family, I will just let you know that I am the second to the oldest of 12 kids. My mom and dad have me and my brother, my dad has me and my brother and my little sister, then my step dad has three daughters, then my mom and step dad have two adopted children, two guardianship children and two foster children, we range from 29 to 6 months. That is just a little back ground. So today we are going to my neices which is my step sisters daughter first birthday party. We are also going to stop by my grandma's house to see her since she fell a week ago and broke her back and they just found out that is what happened. They are going to put glue into her back to fix it we just are not sure when this will all take place.
My mom also had cancer, but right now she is doing fine. My dad had cancer. Both of my grandpa's have passed away as well as a step grandpa, my step dad's dad is the only grandpa that I have left and then all my grandmas are still alive and well other than the one with the broken back.
My older brother has one son, my sister has a son and a daughter and one on the way. I have my son and my step daughter. My family just keeps getting bigger and bigger. My son and my nephew share the same birthday but they are a year apart. I love being a part of a big family and I would not change it other than holidays like christmas gets a little expensive.
Ok my husband has one bother whom is expecting their first child this year. He has only lost one grandpa and his family is pretty much healthy, so I am sure that marring me into this large massive family is weird and the fact that a lot of my brothers and sisters are younger than his daughter has to be werrid. I am 27 and Aaron is 36 so it does not seem werrid to me to have little ones for brothers and sisters but there is a larger gap with them and Aaron then me, but he is wonderful with them all.
I love my life as a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, grand-daughter niece, cousin and the list goes on.
I do not have that many friends in my life because when I grew up I let a lot of them go because it was time for change, but the ones that I do have and the new ones that I am making I hold very true and dear to my heart.
Justice is down for his nap and we had a wonderful mornng. He took a shower with daddy today and played, cuddled and watched minnie mouse. I love those mornings when he just wants to cuddle.
Friday, February 20, 2009
Today I started using my laptop computer again, it is an acer that I only use once and a while. I realized that I love this thing because I can take it anywhere in the house and be with Justice at the same time as I am working. I would love me a wireless card to use with it but maybe someday that will come. Laptops I think were one of the best inventions there are out there. My laptop made by Acer is nice, light and has lots of room for memory on it. It is fast and has not let me down yet.

Ok so I won a basket the other day on a blog. It showed up today and I was so excited for all my goodies. It had home made beer cheese bread, sugar scrubs, laundry detergent and bath salts. I got Justice to bed, ate dinner and went and got in the tub and this stuff is so wonderful. Natalie at www.kyrepomanager.blogspot.com made all this stuff and I absolutally love it. I am hoping that she might share some of her recipes with me so that I can make this stuff too. Thank you Natalie for the basket and thank you Jessica at www.dontgivehimcrackers.blogspot.com for having the giveaway. This was a wonderful gift to win
Damian just went home and me and justice took a long walk and took the lady down the street her mail like we do everyday. I am now working on my dinner and cleaning up to house since two boys trash it more than one does. I am tired and would like to take a nap but that will not happen, I know that. I also have not been sleeping well so I know even if I go to bed early it will not do much good.
Today was nice to sleep in for a little while. This does not happen in my house for me ever. Justice slept until almost 7:30 I was so excited, that I had forgotten that Damian would be here soon. Thank goodness my mom called and reminded me that Damian was on his way here to play for the day. Damian got here and I got cleaned up so that we could go and run some Avon books to customers, take Aaron his coffee and do a couple other errands. We are home now and Justice is down for his nap. Damian is watching TV so I am able to get some work done, but Damian keeps forgetting that Justice is asleep and starts being loud so I am not sure how long the nap today will last. Hopefully for a while because i have things to get done. I have already swept the floor, washed the kitchen table, emptied and refilled the dishwasher, started laundry, cleaned the bathroom, so that leaves, folding laundry, oh yeah I started dinner, so that is finishing dinner, putting laundry away, more dishes, and the list just goes on. Then also make time to cuddle with my son, play with my son, and take care of my sons needs. I think today is going to be a busy day. Oh yeah we need to go to walmart too, we need to get diapers. Not sure what else I need right this second but I will make a list before I go
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Yesterday we headed to Bellingham after nap time to spend some time with my dad and my step mom. Justice had a blast playing with bubbles, running around, playing in the sand box, jumping on the trampoline, things that we don't do here much because my yard is not that big and there is not enough room for all the things that they have. I know for his birthday I would like to get a sand table and some things like that, but not the trampoline no room. We had so much fun while we were there since we do not get to go there as much as I would like, but I dropped what had to be done yesterday to go up there and it was well worth it. Justice was whiped out when we got home. He went to bed around 6:30 and I went to H and R block to redo our taxes since the lady that did them messed up oh well. I got home around 8:40 with dinner for me and Aaron and then Justice woke up. I went in to get him so I could rock with him for a few minuets so he would go back to sleep, but when I got in there we was shaking, something I have never seen before, I think he had a baby nightmare. I felt so bad for him. After a little while I got him back to sleep and then I went off to bed too.
Today we have made avon deliveries, dropped off info for doing fundraisers to some places, ate breakfast and lunch, cleaned the house, started laundry, taken shower (both of us) and taken Aaron a coffee at work. Justice is now down for his nap and I am working and thinking about what else needs to be done today. Nothing to fun just the same old things just on a different day.
Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Today we have been delivering Avon and hanging out in the car. While Justice's is napping today I am getting the info and starting getting things ready for the relay for life in Skagit county where I will have a booth with cookie lee and donating 20% of all proceeds back to the cancer society. I am so excited since there are many family and friends of mine that have or had cancer at one point in time. This is something that is close to home so I feel the urge to do this and the need. I am very excited, but a little scared since Justice will be having his first sleep over at this time since the relay is from 3 in the afternoon till 9 in the morning. He will be fine I know it is me who might not be. I guess this time had to come sometime. I will just miss putting him to bed and getting him up in the morning but I am alright with that or will have to be. This is a big step for me since I do not let any one have him for very long, but I know this time had to come at some point in his and my life. Aaron said that he wanted to come and hang out with me so that I was not there at night by myself so that is why Justice will be doing the sleep over.

This year we did not do anywhere for valentines day. I hate fighting the crowds and did not want to take two kids out to eat. We stayed home and bbqed that night. It was good food but way to cold for that kind of thing. My hubby got my a planted plant, really pretty, a card candy and money. It was good. We got the kids candy and cards this year, nothing to spectacular. It was fun
The next day I started not feeling well and that is the way I have felt now for two days. I hope that I start to feel better soon.
Friday, February 13, 2009
Today is my 50th post and I have not been doing this that long. I have found some wonderful other blogs that I have started to follow and won a wonderful basket yesterday from www.dontgivehimcrackers.blogspot.com. I love her blog and it is very fun to keep up to date on all of them
Ok so now on a more personal note. Tomorrow is valentine's day and I need to go shopping to get my little man something and Aaron something. Aaron will get Adina's when he goes out. This year I need to get Justice something good since he is older. I am also trying to start planning his second brithday party and it is going to be a big one since last year I did not get to do the big one, had to cancel the night before the party because he had the flu. It sucked so I am going to make up for it this year.
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
Justice is long asleep and I am going to do the same since it has been a long and busy day with lots of things accomplished. I hope to start working on potty training soon and taking away his binkie.
I decided today would be a good day to let Justice play with play dough for the first time. He had fun and it went wonderful. We played with it for about an hour and not that big of a mess to clean up which I was surprised about. My son not make a mess, that does not happen. Well he made up for the no mess with the play dough and threw his dinner on the floor which made a huge mess, then decided to unload the book shelf. Wow two messes in two minuets lucky momma. He will see how he likes throwing his dinner on the floor because he is not getting anything else to eat tonight he will have to wait until in the morning to eat breakfast which I do not think he is going to like very well, but I am getting really tired on picking his dinner up off the floor or matter of fast picking any of his meals off of the floor, I am not sure what else to do. I thought he would grow out of this but two years later he has not and it has only gotten worse. Well I need to get back to him before he throws over something else.
I love being a stay at home mom. I would not change this for the world. I love the diapers, runny noses, coughs, colds, the messes, the dishes, laundry, temper tantrums, the phone calls, the mail, the never ending cleaning, the driving around, the everything that has to do with being at home all the time. I also love running my at home businesses, Avon has been my business for 4 years now and recruiting my butt off has not really payed off so I turned to another business Cookie Lee Jewelry and I have only been with them a very short time, but in that time I absolutely love it . The more money I make to more chance I am able to stay home and raise my son myself and be here with Adina when she is here. I love everything that has to do with my life and would not give up or change a thing about it. Cookie Lee is wonderful because I can do home shows, office shows, trunk shows, or book parties and I make 50% on everything. This is a nice thing because it is not on the fact of how much I sell means I will make more. I also like the fact that I will get rewarded will if I do well. Where with Avon I busted my butt for not much. Don't get me wrong I love avon and would never give that up I am just adding to my life to do what needs to be done to make the money and make sure tha tI can be here with my little man all the time.
Justice I think might be getting sick he is a little warm today but not something that this mother can not handle.
I was going to write more but justice is waking up from his nap so I will blog again later.
Want to have a show or book a party let me know.
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
Today has been a good day. I have gotten a lot of work done, and little man has been happy and and angel today. Nothing new happening today other than new messes to clean up but that is all. Everyone I know has been coming down with the flu I am hoping that me and Justice do not since we were around all of these people. Lets just keep hoping that we stay healthy and happy. Aaron has been coming down with a cold but we have had that and are on the mend from that. Hopefully Aaron gets over it soon.
Monday, February 9, 2009
Today all around was just wonderful. I stayed home other than running to the bank. Me and Justice played most of the day and just hung around the house, we did go for a walk and when we started to head home it started to hail hard and the hail was big so I ran most of the way home since Justice was saying "momma head". I do not think he liked the hail on his head. Tomorrow I will be working from home and getting some other things done. Hopefully it will be just as wonderful of a day as it was today. Oh yeah I got Justice to say I love you a couple of days ago. He only said it once and will not say it again but at least I have heard it from my little man once. It was cute and it made me so happy and smiley inside. He said "I nun you" but I knew what he meant. Lately he has wanted to cuddle with me a lot and I really love it.
Ok so I use this to keep me updated on my life with justice but I also read some other blogs. There is one out there having an awesome baby shower with free prizes check it out.http://leeloublogs.blogspot.com/
Me and Justice got up in the morning and made our way up to bellingham for church, then off to grandma's house, then to my dad and sandy's then ended our day at my mom and don's. Justice played with the other kids, took his nap, ate and played some more. While I visited and worked like I do on every sunday. I am a family person so I love going to make my rounds and see everyone I just wish there was more time in the day or that I went up there more than just once a week. We got home and Justice saw the neighbor boys playing football in the street so he went and joined in for quite a while. It was fun to watch and those boys were so nice to let him play since they were way older but they are all so good with him.
Saturday, February 7, 2009
I tried to get Justice to get a hair cut today, had the appointment made and when we showed up Justice wanted nothing to do with it. He would only sit in the chair for two seconds and then he wanted to go bye bye. He stood by the door and said truck because he did not want to be there. So no hair cut for my little man, his hair is really starting to get long and cover his ears, but we will have to wait and try again another day.
Today we are just hanging around the house and not doing much, I might go shopping to find me some shoes but not sure yet.
Oh yeah this morning I got in the shower and got out. Was in the bathroom getting ready, had not gotten dressed yet and Justice tore off his diaper and came in and peed on me and thought that was just the funniest thing ever. I know he did it on purpose but what can I do, at least pee is sterile and not something to grouse. Hopefully this is not something new that he is going to try to do all the time.
Friday, February 6, 2009
Today has been a normal day so far. I am working on trying to get some cookie lee parties set, home show or book shows, and doing the normal running around paying bills and depositing pay checks. Justice for those of you who do not know loves coffee and has since he was very little so I decided today when I went to get coffees I would get him his own peppermint hot chocolate and he loved it. I will have to do this more often for him. I love the time that I have with him but I know that someday he will not want to spend so much time with his momma but for now I will cherish every moment that we have together.
Thursday, February 5, 2009
Today was one of those days that I wanted to sit down and do nothing all day, but that did not happen. I had Justice my wonderful son, Damian my awesome nephew and things to do. We had to go to walmart, take Aaron his coffee, take miss hazel her mail, make some deliveries and do the normal things of the day. While all along I wanted to come home and crawl into my bed and never get out, but that does not happen I am a mom, what mom do you know that gets to sleep in and do nothing some days. Well not at least this one. Sleeping in for me is 6:45 am. Justice likes to go to bed early and get up early and if I keep him up late he gets up even earlier.
Other than that our day was pretty normal. Nothing to excting. Tomorrow will be about the same with deliveries and so on.
I have been trying really hard to get my cookie lee business going which is taking more time at night but that is alright, I what I do because it means that I get to stay home with my little man.
Wednesday, February 4, 2009
I am writing something that I normally do not put on here since this is about my life with my son, but I thought I would tell the story of Justice. I got pregnant with a baby and after 4-5 months I lost the baby due to a miscarriage that was one of the hardest days of my life. I wanted my child so much and then it is gone. I cried and did not know what else to do, so my husband decided that we should go to Winthrop with a few friends to get my mind off of things and to try and have some fun since this was all going on during July. So we packed up my car and his truck with the boat behind and headed to Winthrop. We had a wonderful weekend and when we came home I found out that I was pregnant again. So I just lost a baby a week before and now I was pregnant again. I had mixed feelings because I did not want to loose another one and with choices I made when I was younger I was not sure if I was going to loose another one. The choices are not something that I am going to go into detail about because those are something that I am not proud of and wished never happened, but I can not change that now. So I went to the doctor like I am supposed to when I am pregnant and then found out that I had gestational diabetes. Wonderful something else to deal with, but it was something that I could control with a diet, which I did. The pregnancy went wonderful. I went to my eight month appointment exacutally to the day so Justice should have been born on April 6 well needless to say at this appointment I was dialated to three already, my doctor said in a week to two my son should be born, so I went home and tried to finish the last minuet things that needed to be done. Well that night at 11 my water broke and at 7:19 the next morning Justice celebrated his first birthday. I was scared since he was premature but that was alright since he was healthy and already at 6pound 7 ounces and like 21 inches long. He was perfect. The doctor said since he was premature that I would have to stay in the hospital for a minimum of 48 hours, but that was not the case they sent me home in less than 24. It was so wonderful to be able to come home and be with my son. Well that is my story and the rest is only memories.
I am thankful for my son and my wonderful family, with out them I would not be the person that I am today. My son has changed me in many ways that I am not sure if he will ever know how and why, but he is loved and cherished.
I am thankful for my husband for excepting me for who and what I am and not holding my past against me even the deep secrets that I have about some of it.
My son will be two next month and it is already showing with his temper and fits, today he decided that he was done eating his whipped cream that I had gotten him and covered my whole truck with it. Everyday it is something new but it is just something that I am getting used to and not something that makes me mad just a little frustrating sometimes. My son no matter what he does he is my perfect little angel, but do not get me wrong he can be a stinker and get into trouble, but what boy does not.
Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Ok so after the whole Binky melt down yesterday, we got home from going and buying a couple of new ones the little stinker went right to where he hid the other ones and got those ones too. My question is if he knew where they were all along why did he throw sucha fit about it?
Today is one of those normal days, avon, making food, changing diapers, naps, cuddling, laundry, dishes, making meals, working on cookie lee, cleaning house, bathrooms, picking up messes. If anyone out there thinks that us moms just sit on our butts all day long come to my house and see what life is like as a stay at home mom and working from home, It is not easy trying to do everythign and juggling your life but hay I do what I have to do to stay home with my little man.
Monday, February 2, 2009
today has pretty much sucked. My son has thrown fits about everything but most of alol he lost two of his binkies somewhere in the house and we could not find them anywhere. After about 45 mins. of crying hysterically I took him to the store and got two new ones. That worked for a little while but since they are not the same as what he had he is still mad and wants the other ones. I am ready to run away for some samity
