Long day

Today was a long day away from my little man. I had training for Cookie Lee so Justice got to stay home with daddy (well go to stay with daddy they were not at home.) I am tired and wiped so I am not going to post much other than it was a good day to spend time with some cookie sisters, but I was glad to come home to my little man, he was so happy to see me and that is well worth the time being gone in my mind.

Friday, May 29, 2009

Today was a busy day of playing and more playing. We reviewed some products and Justice just played in the pool, sand box and with the neighbor boys for a little while. It was a wonderful day to just sit outside and relax. I even got in the pool a couple of times today since I got too warm, it was refreshing and nice.
I got the house cleaned and some things done today while justice napped but other than that I just hung out with my little man today.

Justice did decide today to take his shorts and diaper off and run around the yard naked for a while and get in one of my flower pots naked, sit down and told me he was a flower. Then he went and got in the pool because he did not like the dirt on his bum. I thought it was cute, but when I told daddy he did not think it was a great idea, but my thought is he is two and when he gets older he won't be able to do that without getting into trouble so I let him play that way for a little while then I took him in the house and got him into a diaper and some shorts and back outside we went.

Tomorrow little man will be with daddy all day and I should be home just about bed time. Daddy and little man will be going to grandma and pappa's house for a while and I will be at a training class for cookie lee all day, but it is something that I enjoy to do.

We as mother's need more snacks like this because kids do not know that it is healthy all they care is that is tastes good and it is fun to eat. While Justice ate these today all he could say was "num" so I knew it was a winner there.

The step-by-step instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and also anyone could do this.

This does require a sewing machine and the basic knowledge of how to operate one.

I am going to be making a lot of these pillows for my son, stepdaughter, 12 brothers and sisters, two nieces and three nephews and I might even make some for my mom, dad, stepmom, stepdad my and my hubby we will see how much time and energy I have when I get the sewing machine serviced so that I can get busy on these.

What a weekend

On Sunday we did the normal going to bellingham and doing our running around after church. It was a good day and I really enjoy seeing my family and so does justice.
Monday I took Justice down to Aaron's parents house about 8 in the morning and I headed home. We were going on a motorcycle ride and I have not done this in like three years. We left our house about 9:30 and headed up hwy 20 to clarks cabins for lunch which is a about 1hour and 15 mins, then we went up a little farther to the dam and hung out. It was such a nice and beautiful ride, I now remember what I liked about riding my motorcycle and why I used to do it. We got home about 4 o'clock and had to head down south to get little man.

He has a blast, went to the park, played in the water and just hung out. He did not even really care that I was there to get him. We stayed and bbqed it was a wonderful day. Before we went home we stopped by Joel and Wendy's (aaron's brother) new house to see it. It is really cute and Justice had fun running around there. We got home about 9 pm and I cuddled with justice for a few mins. then off to bed. He was tired but really well behaved since his bed time is between 7:30 and 8:00 now that is jumps in his crib if I put him in there too soon.

I love long weekends that we can do things together and have fun. I am so thankful that Justice likes going to our parents house, that makes it so easy for me to leave him becuase I know that if he through a fit everytime I would have a really hard time leaving him

Today has been a wonderful day with aaron and justice. We played outside and just hung around the house. It was nice I like the days when we get to stay home and do a whole lot of nothing. Justice got up this morning and went and woke daddy up and talked and talked it wad so cute. He talked about everything under the sun. Then he had to jump on daddy in bed it was so cute. Aaron tended to justices wounds again today because they are not looking to best but he survived the cleaning and medicine part of it. I decided today to go for. A ride on my motorcycle which I have not done in a long time. 2 years. It was fun and I forgot how much I like to ride, while I was gone justice got to stay home with daddy and cuddle with him. Justice normally is a momma boy but not today he was all about his daddy, and that is nice to have that happen because he needs that time with his daddy. Justice is in bed and me and hubby are having a fire outside and drinking hot cocoa it is nice to spend some time together once and a while.

Friday, May 22, 2009

Today me and Justice went to bellingham so that I could get some work done at my moms. I also helped her outside in the yard getting things ready for the garden, while I was helping Justice was running around and playing since they have a huge yard compared to ours. He had so much fun putting water in the pond and just playing. I love those days. We were there the most of the day then I decided since I was in town that I would stop by my dads even though we saw him in the morning, but my sister was at school and my step mom was not home so we went back. Justice got to play some more and play in the sprinkler. He all around had a wonderful day, well that is until we got home.

I asked him if he wanted to go outside for a little while so he took off outside and I was following. I was not out the door yet and I heard him hit the concrete and start screaming. I looked and he was on his face. Justice had tripped over the puppy and face planted it into the concrete and cut his nose, head and under his nose. He looks horrible and I feel terrible.

I had daddy take care of his owees when he got home and make them all better with medicine.
My little man is down and sleeping now and I am wiped from our wonderful day with a crappy ending

Cheaper Than Therapy

the first time in the pool this year. He loved it and I can not wait for more warm days to get it out again for him.

Today has been wonderful, we did some of our errands and now Justice is down for his nap so I thought I would try to get somethings done today. He has not gotten into anything or create any messes today that are not apart of the normal everyday living which is wonderful since there are days when he is a monster and destroys everything in the house and in sight which can get old some days after about the tenth or so major mess. We even got a walk in today and it was so nice. I love walking with my little man and sometimes I am even lucky he will hold my hand like today. I am not sure what we are going to do for the rest of the day but I am sure that we will have a nice time since it is so warm out today

This is what happens when I let him run around. He was about one in this picture. Wow they get big fast

What a day

Sorry I have not posted in a while, trying to get some things up and going for reviews and giveaways and had a lot of work to catch up on this weekend

Today was a alright day. We stayed home and cuddled most of the day since I had a migraine all day long. It was so nice to spend the day with my little man and not do much of anything. Later in the day Chad the neighbor not came over to play whom is 7 then I had Chris who is 13 and Cody whom is 14 all came over to play with justice it was load and very chaotic in my house and it did not help that I had a headache but justice was having fun so that is all that matters. Tonight was also pot roast night where I make post roast and our friends come over eat with us and watch a movie tonight there was nine of us for Dinner and dessert and then four of us will watch the movie. I like these nights and justice had to have all of our friends tick him in tonight to bed it was so cute.

Ok so this morning me and Justice were doing our normal thing when we get up. We cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons, well I must have fallen asleep and woke up to my son dumping baby powder all over me and all over the house. It was a mess and I am still not done cleaning it up, but hay at least my house smells good right? I am now washing almost everything that was in his room, the blankets from the coach, some of his stuffed animals and the walls, the bed the crib and not to mention I had to take a shower after that. What a mess and I used to think that I liked the smell of baby powder until it is poured all over your face while you are sleeping. So much of it was floating in the air that I had to open the windows and we had to leave for a while to let the house air out because I could not take the smell any longer. It was making me nuts, well I am already there but more so then normal.I need to make sure that I do not fall asleep again with the little man running around by himself, it works for daddy he will just cuddle next to Aaron while he sleeps but with me he has to get into everything and make sure that he makes a really big mess in doing so.
I think now today I will have about four loads of laundry to do after the mess justice made, oh well it should keep me busy the most of the day. We have already taken Aaron's check to the bank and taken him a coffee. Now we are at home trying to see what I can get accomplished here. We will see since it is supposed to be really nice and warm out today which is has not been for a while, so I might just not do anything and go outside with Justice and play, we will see what the day brings.

What a day

Today started to be a normal day then my grandma called and told me to come to bellingham. I only normally do this on the weekends, but we went. Justice had a lot of fun looking at grandma's new pond and playing there. Then since we were up there we went to my dad's which is only a couple of blocks away. We stayed in bellingham for four hours, it was nice to be able to visit and see my family. Since I do not get to do that very much. We then headed home to find out that I was excepted by pitch bloggers. I am so excited about this. I would really like my blog turn into something with reviews/giveaways and of course my opinion since I am so good about giving that. I am a down to earth, fun loving, momma whom is not afraid to state my opinion about anything.

Justice is now down to bed and I am playing with my new toy. My blackberry pearl. I love it................. I love being able to get my emails and things while I am not at my computer. What did I ever do before this? I am so lost now if I do not have it with me, but that only happened yesterday for a while, they had to trade it out for a new one since something on the first one did not work right. But now I have one that is working and I am loving it.

Cheaper Than Therapy

This is something that is just to precious not to share, this is my hubby Aaron, Justice maybe a week old, Aaron's Dad Robert and Aaron's grandpa Nels. 4 Generations of men.

This is what happens when you are cooped up all day long with the chicken pox.

Today was a wonderful day with me little man. We played outside, made Avon deliveries and just did mommy and son things. It is so nice that Justice is feeling so much better and it chicken pox are almost gone. Every day that that I spend with my son it makes me so thankful that I am a mom. I also wonder every day what I did before I was a mom, it seems like was not complete until I become a mom to the worlds most wonderful little man. I am thankful for everyday that god has given me with my son. Justice looks like me his momma and acts most of the time Just like his daddy. He is sweet, stubborn, has to get his way,he is loving, funny, very caring and has the best memory I have seen in a little boy. I would not change a thing about him and I love every quality that my son has.

Since this year Justice had chicken pox and with so many small children in my family it was a given that we would be staying home. Then aaron's family also did not want it so that was another stay home, so we stayed home for mother's day. It was wonderful, Aaron went and got breakfast, Justice and Aaron both got me cards, then I ran and got coffees which was needed. Then I got Justice down for his nap and I got in the shower, and got ready for the day. I like sometimes to just lounge around the house in my pjs and not get ready for the day. Then when Justice got up I decided that we would take him to the park to play. He had so much fun swinging, sliding down the slides, and chasing squirles and just running around the play equipment. All and all it was a wonderful mother's day, then after justice went to bed me and the hubby curled up on the living room floor and watched a movie, that was after we ate way to much dinner and did not feel so well.

I love being a mother,
wiping noses,
changing diapers
cleaning up messes
kissing owes
tucking him into bed
going in at least 5 times before he falls asleep
giving baths
making food
doing laundry
hearing momma
the kisses and hugs
everything is just so wonderful about being a mom even the no sleep and worrying when they are not feeling well or making sure that their bumps and bruises do hurt any more

I got a trial sample in the mail from Dove and coupons the other day (well it was full sized which was nice). This deodorant is wonderful and smells really nice too. I have never really tried anything new since I found something that worked and I have always stuck with that, but since this was free I wanted to try it and I really like it. It goes on smooth and covers nicely, I smells wonderful and keeps you dry. It also keeps you stubble free longer which is an added plus all in its own. It offers 24 hours wetness and order protection so you can not worry all day and all night and with little ones we all know how important that is. This deodorant is one of the best that I have ever tried, it feels nice and does not get all over your clothes or clump up like other ones do. This is something that I will keep in my bathroom to use everyday.
So here it is my first giveaway:
I have 24 coupons to giveaway to different readers.
Leave a comment about what kind of deodorant you use and why you want to try dove and I will pick 24 readers to get these coupons to.
Make sure you include your email if it is not visible on your blog, (non bloggers welcomed to just make sure you leave your email.

Chicken Pox

Yesterday I had to take Justice to the doctor because he has the chicken pox, which I feel horrible for him. Not much that I can do for it other than just take care of him and comfort him. The doctor says that he needs to stay home for 7/10 days. Today he woke up with more bumps all over him. I need to run to the grocery store and get some calamine lotion, but I do not want to take him but it looks like I might have to do it any way since I am not sure if I am going to. I am bummed because of mothers day we are going to have to stay home and do nothing since I do not want to take him anywhere and get a bunch of other kids sick.

This is my son modeling my Cookie Lee Jewerly for me. He is so cute and this is something that he loves to do.

Fun day at home

Me and Justice stayed home today, we had to wait for Fedex to show up with my new blackberry phone from Verizon and I already love it and am trying to figure everything out on it. Not an easy job but it is sure fun. We played inside all day since it was grosse outside today and I did not want to have to go outside and play in the wind and rain. We had a lot of fun though, well not when he decided to bite me so hard that I started to cry so he got a swat on the hinny and then had to sit on the couch until I told him to get down. He then told me sorry gave me a hug and kiss then kissed my owwie and then pulled him pants down and asked me to kiss his owwie where he had gotten a swat. It was cute and we had no other biting problems other than that today. I love the days when I get to stay home with my little man and play. We played with everything today and maybe somethings that we should not have, well him at least like dumping hot cocoa into the burner of the stove and that was a mess to clean up, oh well.
We had a wonderful day together and I am looking forward to tomorrow with him

Not me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by
Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This Friday I did not let Justice go outside with out his shoes on the play because I was to lazy to find them.

I do not get up early on Saturday so that we could go get free wood at my mom's house, for our outside fires in the summer. Not me.

I did not go and do a jewerly show on Friday night and eat like a pig because they had made oysters and clams. I did not sit there and wish that I had eaten more, but already felt funny because I ate so many.

I did not order myself a blackberry this weekend so that I can be on the internet where ever I am at, and I am not sitting waiting for it to show up.

I did not put Justice in the shower with my again this morning so that I could get ready and take a nice shower and then have time to get ready while he played in the water.

We did not go to my husband's grandma's birthday party yesterday and have to leave early because I had a migraine, I was not in bed at 6:30 when Justice went to bed last night.

I most defiantly do not let Justice pretend like he is driving my truck to make him happy and so that I do not have to listen to him scream.

I really am not doing my blog and playing with not me monday instead of cleaning house and doing dishes/laundry
