Prayers for Stellan

You may be asking who Stellan is, well my simple answer, I don't know. But today as I was purusing my favorite blogs during lunch I came to Life is Sweet and she was talking about a little baby named Stellan, who has SVT. This little boy has been a miracle since birth and right now needs a miracle. So please pray for this baby and his family.

Prayers for Stellan

Just click on the picture to go to My Charming Kids to read about Stellan.


Waving the White Flag

I give up, I just can't take it anymore. Yup we are sick again. I don't know what to to do, I have sanitized, disinfected, and cleaned so many times, I don't know how any type of germ can survive. It's not like everyone is sick all the time, but when you have 6 people and each person gets sick 3 times, that's 18 bouts of something that mom has to take care of. To top it off I have been sick most of March. I am never sick. I am just ready for all this sickness to be done and to be healthy again. I want to sit and mess with my new camera that I really haven't done much with because I am too sick to take any pictures. Okay so I just need a little pity party. 1.2.3 ahhhh

So sorry for the little rant, next post will be happy with pictures, I promise.

Days gone by.....

13 years ago, today, I became a mom. I still remember that sweet, little face staring up me. I was so happy and scared at the same time. I had no clue what to do and to think they were going to send this precious little baby boy home with me. Fast forward 13 years, that baby is now a teenager and today is his birthday. I can't believe how fast time flies and how my life has changed since this boy came into my life, all for the better, because I couldn't imagine not being a mom. So his birthday is very special to me, his birth and my journey into motherhood. Happy birthday Big B!!!!!!

2nd Place Baby.....

Bryce is sooo happy, last night was J.O.'s (JO's is a wrestling tournament, something like districts in high school, but this is for elementary and junior high kids). Well he got 2nd place and now he moves on to Saturday. His goal is to make it to Erie next Saturday, this is similar to States in High School. If you aren't familiar with wrestling, then you have no clue what I am talking about. :-)

It was a good evening. Bitsy was even good, Aunt L showed up and had her bag full of goodies and it kept Bitsy entertained pretty much all night. So all I can say is thank you L, I really appreciated it.

Calgon Take Me Away....

Do you remember this commercial? Okay so I am probably dating myself, but that's what I feel like right now. I keep singing my theme song in my head "I need a vacation from my life", not that my life isn't blessed or anything like that. I am so sick of the icky sicky. Can we have a break???? Monday night Bitsy Boo got sick, I thought she was better yesterday so took her to the church, I clean on Thursday with a friend of mine. It's also my way of having a little adult conversation during the week. Anywhoo, Bitsy started crying and then threw-up, thank goodness she didn't have alot to eat, but still I felt so awful. My friends little boy was there and I am just praying they don't get sick. So I had to scratch my plans to into town, just to say I haven't been out of the house since Sunday, going a little stir crazy. When I got home, hubby didn't look so hot and said he felt sick, GREAT!!! So I spent the whole afternoon, santizing my house, the good news is I already have a jumpstart on my spring cleaning. About 3:00 p.m. we got a call from the school saying Big Buddies threw-up in the library, and you know all I could think is, well atleast I don't have to clean it up. I mean my little man is sick and that's the first thing that popped into my head. Geesh what's wrong with me. Needless to say Big Buddies is home from school today, it's a sick day, but on a happy note, my little lady is feeling better. So the question is who will get sick next?

So I can never end a blog post without pictures, here are a few pictures of my girlies from last weekend.

I think he's a keeper....

I have been wanting a dslr for awhile now but they are pretty pricey. So since the fall I have been saving money for one and I thought that by my birthday, in June, I would have enough money to purchase one. Well my hubby last weekend said lets just go to Ritz's and get it. They were having a pretty good sale and I got 2 lenses with it. I ended up getting a Nikon D60, it's a entry level dslr and so far I love it.
Right now I am figuring out how to use it and take better pictures. Here are a couple I have taken of my kiddos. They thought I loved to take pictures when I had my Kodak, they haven't seen nothing yet.

So what do you think? I think they are pretty good and they can only get better from here as I learn to use this baby. In 15 weeks we are going to the beach so I better get practicing and reading. So I do believe that my hubby is a definite keeper. Love ya babe and thanks so much....
