We Saw Santa!

Hi Mom,I miss the good ol Days...

Im gonna Get cha

How does this thing work again?

"Niceeee" Trevi

Me and Trevi chillin'

Me and Andy were sittin in the living room,
and it was quiet were like where's travi?
We head into the dining room and (the above pic)
It was too funny..he always knows how to crack us up!
Well today was a good day!
Trevor showed up at 7 and Travi woke up 5 mins later.
Travi was in time out 2wce today because he gets mad he always has to be nice to trevor and got his warnings but was still being mean to him so he had to face 2 mins in
He doesnt understand u cant chuck baseballs at a 4 month old,even if they are soft?
I put away all his hard ones ,God only knows what he would do ...dont wanna find out!
After lunch we went to the mall and went into sears and saw all the trees,reindeer and light decorations...some of them played music and the boys loved it!
After strolling a while "We saw Santa!!!"
Trevor slept through it but Travi was in awe....santa gave me a list for travis to fill out what he wants for Christmas...
After that we went and travi played in the play area.
he kept tryng to escape,God only knows why they dont put a gate there when across the isle is a toy store and a train that goes around and around!
So I was talking with a mom travi was playing with her daughter,Noelle
how appropriate for this time of yr...haha
and she was the guard...and everytime travi ran to go out ,he'd look at her run to me hide his head at my legs...haha
So i either need to find a stranger to stand there to intimadate him for trying to escape or put a cardboard cut-out i guess!
Tomorrow we'll be making art projects for Thanksgiving!!!
Andy and trav had the virus for Thanksgiving last yr so he wasnt very fond of turkey.
well try it again and hopefully it will stay down this yr!

A great poem from a childs eyes....
Our kids listen and watch everything we do,
what do we want them to remember?
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang myfirst painting on the refrigerator, and I immediatelywanted to paint another one.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed astray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kindto animals.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make myfavorite cake for me, and I learned that the littlethings can be the special things in life.
When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could alwaystalk to, and I learned to trust in Him.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make ameal and take it to a friend who was sick, and Ilearned that we all have to help take care of eachother.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give ofyour time and money to help people who had nothing,and I learned that those who have something shouldgive to those who don't.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take careof our house and everyone in it, and I learned we haveto take care of what we are given.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how youhandled your responsibilities, even when you didn'tfeel good, and I learned that I would have to beresponsible when I grow up.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears comefrom your eyes, and I learned that sometimes thingshurt, but it's all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that youcared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.
When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most oflife's lessons that I need to know to be a good andproductive person when I grow up.
When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you andwanted to say,'Thanks for all the things I saw
whenyou thought I wasn't looking.'Let’s pray that God will help us to remember that they are looking … all the time.
Thanks Carol for that encouraging poem!

A Time To Die....or just feel like it!

This has been me since wednesday morning!
Jaime called and said she was feeling ill so I wouldnt have trevir today.
so i went back to bed after tossing and turning all night long.
When travi woke up around 8:30 I felt like I wanted to die...

My body was not functioning right. It felt like I was just hit by a train. I had like 3 cups of coffee and nothing was letting me shake this thing!
I was being really impatient with travis,although he was screaming and whining about nothing so that was harder to deal with
until i called mom saying come fly in i need help!!!
she was telling me to calm down and try to find someone to help me.
But i didnt really know who to call that could help.

I bugged the crap out of my friend Lori the week before
I think we saw each other 3 times in 4
What a blessing she is to my life!
I didnt know what to do,as the minutes went on i was feeling worse and worse.

Then as i have mom on the phone Travis put a piece of wicker in his mouth from his basket and i tryed to grab it with my index finger he bit so hard my finger was bleeding and i screamed.
(and ok im sure it was louder and more animated that i felt so lousy,but that junk hurt..i thought he was gonna rip my finger off,cant i give him steak yet to dull those puppies out?)

Ok so im back to me screaming right? Travis flipped his top! I scared him so now as mom is on the phone hes crying im crying and moms not letting me hang up.
Shes like you need oh mommy more than you know!!!lol

So i had no clue who to call. At the meet and mingle last week my friend denise said if u ever need anything dont hesitate to call.. but i felt bad not even meeting her more than twice...
but desperate times calls for desperate measures!

So baby went down for a nap whther he wanted to or not.
after having a sneezing fit and sobbing i called Denise.
as i was balling on the phone with her,shes like thats what I'm here for!!!

She came and picked Travis up and kept him all day at her house and andy picked him up on his way home...I took some nyquil, and i was watching dancing with the stars pissed that cody got kicked off....the judges so had it out for him...i dont care if im obsessed with disney or not, it wasnt right...and then i was in la-la land!

Thank God for this moms club, I Love You Ladies!!!!
And Lori, Thanks so much for your support and offering to bring me groceries..
you can do that anytime you

so needless to say that was wednesday and today saturday im walking that whipped my butt.
My poor hubby played mommy for a few days and was pretty good at it too...maybe it showed him i dont wake up at noon and eat bon-bons until he comes home! Love U Babe!

Now Travi isnt feeling great...but I feel in a better position to handle him with the patience he deserves,wow im a monster when im sick!

A New Arrival!

Travis pushing Trevor in the swing

Travi feelin territorial!

Travi doin..."niiiice"

Travi rememberin the good ol days..

I am watching a 4 month old lil boy Trevor.
And Travi got a big surprise when he woke up this morning.
He didnt know what to think...he looked at me,him,then me again and laughed...
He was a little rough at first but I had to keep showing him to do nice to Trevor...
And sooner than later he was getting the idea.
Travis enjoyed pushing him in the swing,sometimes he tried getting in their w/ him and I had to tell him
Trevor really liked Travis. he kept laughing at him. even though Travis startled him a few times.
He got used to it!
Travi had to learn to share me...he did ok.
Im hoping this helps him not be so dependant on me..
I guess only time will tell!

Invaded by Jersey Girlz!

Me and Lindsay..sis 'n' sis
Love U Sis!

"The Crew"
Aunt Kathy, Aunt Bev, Me, Mom, and lindsay

Aunt Bev taking over Travi's Bus!
It was so nice to have my family fly in for a few days!
It was nice spending time together,shopping,eating, and relaxing together.
I was so excited the first night that i was doing leg lifts at 2 am on the air mattress...haha
Travis was overwhelmed the next morning,but it was ok because Gram brought him his green walking dino. It was so cool!
On sunday in our church service Lindsay spoke about her trip to Russia and I got to sing and share about what God did through me back a few years ago when i went...
It was awesome and my church got to help support her in her trip!
Everyone had to leave to go back but the memories will stay and how much fun we had!
Even though hormones flew and lots of coffee was drank but in the end it was all worth it!

Happy Fall Ya'll!

I havent wrote in a while,
Life has been busy,busy!

Today we went to the helicopter park and Travis played forever going up the steps and down the slide.He was so proud of himself to do it alone.

It was so pretty out.High 60's...perfect!
I dont want the weather to change.
Travi took a 3 hr nap,he wore himself out..haha

Then we went to go pick him up a lil tyles garden with the veggies,mailbox...etc
someone was giving it away for free on craigslist.
I made sure we scooped that up.

He played in it until he feel asleep tonight.
He tryed his first kid cuisine too!
I handed him a corn dog and he didnt know what to do with it...haha
he was banging himself on top of the head with it and i had to show him how it was food...:)

We had a hard week with Travis. Hes not a library child or one that will venture off on his own very long ,so it gets difficult to do things where i cant give him the attention he wants.
It becomes very frustrating for me.
I just need to stay away from the meet and mingles for a while and do more active things with him.
Sometimes i feel frustrated i never get to enjoy talking to other moms or listening to the speakers they have...
sometimes i feel like why leave the house?
i know im gonna come home emotionally and physically exhausted...
is the inside of my townhouse the only place ill see this winter?

Hes so much better in his own enviroment,but ill just go crazy!!!!!

But God is good, and Iknow He'll help me to get through these hard phases......
