YAY I WON!!


I was so excited to check my friends blog to see that I won one of her giveaways. She makes great jewelry. It's perfect and so dainty. I had purchased some cute earrings in the past, but this month I was lucky and won some cute dangle earrings. I love to get things in the mail. What a treat. They were perfect just in time for the holiday season. If you want to check out her blog go to the right of my blog and check out OUR DELIGHTFUL LIFE. Her ETSY store is great. Thank you so much!! I love them.

Our Christmas Morning





We had a wonderful day. The best was seeing the looks on the kids faces when they came down the stairs. We had a blast watching Mia and Ava take turns in the Mustang. And Robert just sat on his bike all morning. Of all the days that week, Christmas had to come on a rainy day. Mia also loved her princess table. Ava got the new Elmo live and she loved it. Santa was also good to me too. I got perfume (my absolute favorite one), Top Chef cook book (love that show),WII fit with a Jillian Michaels game (all of you who watch The biggest Loser know who this is), and Mama Mia!!! We really did have a good day. Gifts aside that whole day was great. I love to sit back and watch the kids and my husband play. Sometimes I just sit back and wonder how I got so lucky. I have 3 great kids and a wonderful husband. We hope you all have a great Holiday Season.

We love the holidays









I love my house this time of year. The lights, the colors, everything. I tried to decorate our home as much as I could. But a little girl( I won't mention any names) AVA takes everything down. My tree barely has ornaments on it. The ouside of my home is great. My hubby did a great job. Just when I thought he was done, he left to Lowes and came back with more. I have a few pictures of the house before the Lowes trip. Enjoy the pictures of our home. Enjoy the weather, your family, and the holiday season. Have a great weekend.

Hello

Just wanted to stop in and say hi to everyone. I am never online anymore because I am busy with the new baby and trying to adjust to 3 kids. It isnt easy I must say. I really want to write a book for moms with more than 2 kids because all of the books I see are for new moms. The other night I had to go to a healthfood store to get something for little mister because he is having some sort of belly problems....so I get there and he was asleep and halfway through the store he woke up and was flipping out bigtime. So I pay and get the 2 girls and go out to the car. I breastfeed him and he was still upset so I gave him some formula then breastfed again then gave him Gripe Water and that really made him cry so it had the opposite effect I guess then I just finally kinda calmed him and thought I better go home since it was 9pm and I had been in the car for about an hour already. So I tried to turn on the car and it wouldnt turn on so the battery was acting up. So I have the baby crying and the girls fighting and saying they were starving and wanted hamburgers but were fighting over where to go meanwhile I am almost in tears. So I get my kids and go BACK into the store ask for the phone because of course I dont have the cell phone. I called my husband to come get me and got the kids a sandwhich and chips and went BACK out to the car and guess what?? The car started and the baby calmed down enouggh only because before attempting to start the care I BREASTFED AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I need a book that tells me what to do in these situations!!. I must say I forgot how time consuming breastfeeding is. Also this is the first time I was brave enough to take a baby out so small on my own which I wont do it again for a while. It is scary.
