update

Well Ruth {my future MIL} is coming around.She still can't walk but she is starting to talk a little.She does get her sentences messed up and her memory ain't all there.She does have color again.I am not letting her go back home.I am moving Brent to Justin & Kaden's room so Granny can have a room to herself.It just aggravates me that Donald's father wouldn't call for help.I just keep praying the doctors can figure something out.I have many pics to post as soon as I get the time.I have seen alot of my family I haven't seen in 10 years or longer.I better get a scootin.

Please just PRAY

Donald's mother has been ill for 2 day's.His father called yesterday and told Donald to go tell his mom to move downstairs.Donald said he couldn't do that thinking his mom was mad at his dad.Today when we get 100 miles from home Donald's dad called again.This time is was to tell Donald his mom was sick.I told Donald to call his mom and she sounded a bit confused.After getting home Donald took the tahoe and went to see his mom and try to get her to the doctor.He later text me and said he couldnt get her down the stairs.I told him to wait for me so my mom gave me a ride over then she came back to my place to camp with the kids.We finally agreed to call an ambulance for help.Donalds dad just wanted to get the sled and pull her down the stairs NO THANK YOU!We then went to the hospital to be with her.She never has been in the best of health.They run tests on her but we didn't get results tonight.The only thing she will say is a small struggled yeah.It's scary people!Just pray along with me that it isen't a stroke or anything serious.I wish and pray she makes a full recovery.I love that woman!She has been in my life since I was 14 years old and has done so much for me.I will go see her again tomorrow and every day after until she gets well and gets to come home.You never realize what you have until you no longer have it.Since she talks to me more then she does her 2 sons I was able to answer the health questions they ask but I need to know more.I am going to make that my goal!So let's all say our prayers for a full recovery!I'll update tomorrow.

Just Pics From The Past

This is my dad in the brown shirt and thats my cousin Cari's Aunt May in the white shirt standing and thats my Uncle Joe on the right by the yellow balloon and that guy back there in the hoodie is my cousin Donald.This was a gathering for my Grandpa's Birthday. This is my Aunt's & Uncles..From left to right:Ellen,May,Randy,Ruth,John,and my dad.
This is Me,My Grandma,and Kelsey.Kelsey was 3 months old here.


This is Kaden over this summer.I only posted it for the pic below.



This is Justin & Kelsey.Do you see how much Kaden & Justin look alike?





The little girl in the brown dress is Ashley.The baby boy holding her is Gabe.Ashley is 1 day older then Gabe.Do you see a size difference?




And this would be Justin.Ain't he the prettiest boy you ever seen?





This would be Donald when I was pregnant with Kelsey.Good thing one of us had energy to waste.




Thanks for reading my blog.Have a wonderful Thanksgiving if I don't get on to blog before the big day!

Santa Claus IS a WOMAN!!!

Santa Claus is a woman!Santa Claus is a woman because:
The vast majorities of men don't even think about selecting gifts until Christmas Eve and only go for a last-minute shopping spree.
For a he-Santa, there would be no reindeer because they would all be dead, gutted and strapped on to the rear bumper of the sleigh.
Even if the male Santa did have reindeer, he would inevitably get lost up there in the snow and clouds and then refuse to stop and ask for directions.
For a Santa man, there would be unavoidable delays in the chimney, where the Bob Vila-like Santa would stop to inspect and repaint bricks in the flue.
He would also need to check for carbon monoxide fumes in every gas fireplace, and get under every Christmas tree that is crooked to straighten it to a perfectly upright 90-degree angle.
Men can't pack a bag.
Men would rather be dead than caught wearing red velvet.
Men would feel their masculinity is threatened...having to be seen with all those elves.
Men don't answer their mail.
Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a "bowlful of jelly."
Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them.
Having to do the 'Ho Ho Ho' thing would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women.
Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.
Santa is certainly a Man!Santa Claus is undoubtedly a man because:
Santa doesn't deliver his presents on The Friday after Thanksgiving when the malls are open for 20 hours. Christmas Eve deliveries prove Mr. Claus to be a man.
Santa's reindeer is so drunk that his nose glows as his navigator. A woman would never let out those cute deer to work on Christmas Eve that too in cold and perhaps would dress them in sweaters and booties.
Only a male Santa can ignore 'fashion' and wear the same suit for 500 years.
Santa has never been known to answer a letter.
Women aren't interested in stockings unless someone better looking than them is wearing them.
As many presents as Santa delivers he has no trouble with babes.
Only men have the ability to stay up for 24 hours straight in the cold with a bunch of mangy deer and going up and down soot-infested chimneys.
A woman would never even think of going down a chimney and risk staining that red velvet.
Commitment requires that Christmas be on the same day each year. A female Santa would delay Christmas until she can touch-up her makeup and do her hair after leaving each house.

Hi Ya'll

Oh Happy Day's

Oh yes it's pure bliss!It's 35 day's til Christmas and I have had a 1 track mind and nearly skipped Thanksgiving.I started cleaning my house yesterday and got it finished up today.I'm so amazed I still have counters and floors.My cousin comes to visit me on Friday's and today was no different.I love spending time with her and her kiddos.Kaden threw all the clothes that I hung today out of the girls closet and then Lydia tried them all on.Did I mind?NOPE!They will only be kids once and I remember exactly how much fun it was to do that.You also have to realize that these two munchkins generally get on the washing machine and grab the cleaners and clean so yep I'll take the clothes any day.Only 6 more day's til Thanksgiving!I do believe I am ready.The only thing I think I have to get is umm bananas and canned biscuits.I have my turkey laid in the fridge thawing since it's 28 pounds.It takes a turkey 5 hours per pound to thaw.I'll lay the ham out on Tuesday and cook it Wednesday night so all I have to do is reheat it.I only have Kaden this weekend and he is on the couch asleep.Pretty peaceful around here.I wish it would hurry and snow!I bought myself an electric mixer yesterday and wrapped it up nicely only to tell my sister and have her yell at me to get it unwrapped and returned because thats what she got me for Christmas.Oh boy I guess when I try to buy myself stuff someone else has already gotten it for me.Must be why I don't buy myself stuff.I think I'm gonna call it a night and turn in.Have a fantastic weekend.

Twins?

Nope!Just Cousins.When I went to the feed and farm supply store to buy Donald a carhart coat for Christmas the kids spotted these 4 wheelers so I let them climb on so I could get their pic.I did manage to get run over a few times since they were charged. 37 Day's Til Christmas

Happy Monday :0)

I had a fantastic weekend and I hope the rest of you did also.I had forgot Friday was the 13th but I generally have very good luck on that day.My friend called me Friday morning and asked if Kaden and I would like to go to Ryan's and eat so we could talk about the family's in which we would be adopting.I told her yes of course we would so we got ready and met.It was peaceful during the meal and everything went fine.After eating and talking I decided I needed to go get foil for Thanksgiving but I wasen't in the mood for wal mart so I just ran to the dollar tree.Once inside the store I headed to toy's to see what I could find for the little girls I adopted.I was on my knees digging {advice from my sister} when I felt someone burning holes in me with their eyes.I stood up slowely then raised my head to find my ex standing there with a smile on his face then he said hi.I started shaking and told Kaden we needed to go so we checked out and left.I called my friend from the parking lot and she said she was at wal mart so I headed that way with him right on my tail.He finally gave up and I snuck home as fast as I could get there.I wouldn't have been so scared of him but after looking at his background one time I discovered he nearly killed his mom and ex wife.So yeah not exactly what I need.Saturday was just a day of raking leaves and mowing the lawn.Sunday {yesterday} I finished up the yard and then I done what I generally wait til the last minute when it's 20 degrees to do.I hung my Christmas lights on the roof and got my inflatable panda and reindeer and sleigh set up.And as for today it's cold and rainy so I'll just take Kaden to school then come clean the house for a bit.That should catch you up on what I have been doing.I won a box of cheerios,5 books,and a Barnes & Noble gift card from Erica over at In need Of Mercy!Thank you again Erica

Have I totally Lost My MIND?

I think so!As you all know I strted my Christmas shopping and only have Donald left to shop for.I done this so I wouldn't be stressed in December.Well yesterday something happened and I'm sure I totally lost my mind.I woke up,got the kids off to school,then Kaden and I headed to the bank.After leaving the bank we hit big lots,mcdonalds,my cousins thrift store,the chamber of commerce,and then we came home.We done fine at the bank and big lots but when we got to mcdonalds things changed.I had 2 monopoly game pieces {1 for a med fry and 1 for a small soft drink}.I told the lady what I had and she told me only 1 game piece per person per visit.I let her know I had my kid with me so she said that would work so I continued to place my order of 1 free small dr pepper,1 free med fry,1 32 oz dr pepper,and 2 hamburgers.She told me my grand total was $2.90 so I pulled around and gave her $3.00 only to have her hand me $1.00 back.I drove away from mcdonalds paying $1.90.I felt so goos after that so we headed to my cousins.There I found a bassinet,2 infant car seats,and a bouncey seat along with crib bedding and infant clothes.Oh I instantly thought of craiglist so I packed up those treasures to bring home with me.Then I went to the chamber of commerce and noticed avon books laying on the table.Ok so now I am in pure bliss.I grabbed a book held it tight and asked if I could have it.The poor lady looked at me and laughed and said I could have it.I called my orded in last night and have to call her again today to place another order.Then I came home and started reading the daily quill to find the salvation army needed bell ringer groups to ring bells for 8 hour shifts.Ok so I called and got 2 shifts.Thats 16 hours of standing.By this time I am thinking I have totally lost my mind.I then get bored so I go to topix.com and put an add up that I want to adopt 2 children for Christmas.It didn't take long for m e to get bites.Do you remember I am already buying for 8 kids?Well make that 10 now.So as you see yesterday I lost my mind and now I sit here reminding myself that God makes way's where there seem to be none.I know I can do this!

Girls Night Out

Ok so I'm a bit behind on this but I have been running in every direction.On November 5th my cousin Sarah and I went to see Jason Aldean in concert.I wasen't real far away but not real close either so I just got the pictures I was able to get.





I still like his song Big Green Tractor and a few others but I will NEVER go to another one of his concerts.Either Tracy Lawerence spoiled me with his concert or Jason was just really rude.He sang maybe 5 of his own songs and the rest that he sang was like Van Halen or something.We was not at all impressed!I know we should have felt proud to be there but nope we could have stayed home and watched a good movie and had more fun.

It's almost Thursday

I hope everyone had a very blessed day.There are several of my followers that I am holding tight in my prayers.I have EVERY single gift wrapped finally but since I sold my ugly boots today I can go buy a few more items off the list.I had a very peaceful day today.I didn't clean but I did seperate clothes into sizes and got it all posted on craiglist.I did manage to sell my boots and postal scale and I even managed to give away a huge bag of clothes.My mom,sister,cousin,and cousins kids all came to visit.Tomorrow night is the Jason Aldean concert and my cousin is going with me.Ashley's picture came out in the paper tonight and I got very excited.Of course I saved it to my computer and have it posted below.A cat in the next town over got the swine flu.I found that pretty interesting.Kaden has school again tomorrow.I think I like him going 2 day's per week in the afternoon rather than 4 day's per week in the morning.Friday Ashley will be 6 years old.I have no clue where the time went with that child.Justin is finally trying new fods and shedding some weight!I have also shedded a few pounds.I think my family is finally getting fit!I'm going to close for now and get ready for bed.

90 Down

I have got 90 Christmas gifts wrapped so far.I have 20 something left in the bedroom to wrap and a few more yet to buy.Are you tired of hearing about Christmas yet?I am a bit excited about it!I have all the kids pig stys {aka bedrooms} cleaned and I even managed to squeeze in laundry and the living room.I put Justin back in Kaden's room and moved Brent to Justin's old room.Justin has had an awful attitude lately but when I seen Kelsey's new swim suits cut up in Justin's room I knew he was so outta there.He is not happy about the new arrangments but he can just deal with it.Did I forget to mention I even squeezed in wal mart and cooking supper?Man alot can happen in 1 day if you just set your mind to it.It is still nice weather here but I can't wait for it to snow.I have joined a place called freecycle.It's web based and people put all kinds of good junk on there for free.I seem to put more on there then I recieve which could be a good thing.Just go to www.freecycle.org to browse your neighborhood junk.Hey you just might find something you have been looking for.I spent my last green backs on food,Christmas gifts,wal mart game room,and mcdonalds today *sigh*.I better put more junk on craiglist tomorrow so I can get more.Uh oh it's after 11:00 so I better hang this up and head for the shower.I love the time change!

Happy Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :0)

It's just the moon but..........................
UGGGGHHHHH I haven't done anything very exciting lately.I did get most of the Christmas shopping done.I think $75.00 will finish it off.I managed to get the girls pig sty (aka bedroom) cleaned today.Trust me it took me literally ALL day!I think I'll do the boy's next and then Justin's.I figure I am going to toss more toy's and clothes just so I do not have to look at it anymore.Me and my cousin Sarah and her 3 kids and Kaden took a road trip Friday.I shopped and shopped and then I sold some stuff I had put on craiglist.It was a good day even if Donalds truck slid into my tahoe.Umm yes I was driving the truck and Donald wasen't here :) You see it rained so much my rig got water under the hood and it wouldn't start but it has finally dried out.It is nice and warm here today.I have opened windows to let it air out a bit.Thanksgiving is just around the corner.I'm just blabbing.Oh wait I have a pic to add.Just let me send it from my phone to my email.
