--Disclaimer: This is a whiny vent-y post. Feel free to skip it.--

Yeah, I know that it's been 2 weeks since I last posted.

Yeah,I know that my blog is a snooze lately.

That crazy little thing called life has been busy lately. Even when it's not,I can't seem to make myself to do anything.

My house is a mess. There is an explosion of clothes and toys everywhere. We had to clean out the storage unit so there are boxes all over the family room.

All of our Christmas decor is still buried in a storage unit. Even if I get it out soon,I don't want to put it up. This year,you can call me Ebenezer.

A lot of things seem to be hitting me all at once....and motivation? I don't haz it. AT ALL.

We are apartment hunting. Unsuccessfully,I might add. 2 different managers have turned us down because we have "too many kids" for a 3-bedroom place. Since we can't afford a 4 bedroom place (unless I sell one of my organs) we just have to keep looking and hope that someone will take pity upon us and our situation. Unfortunately most places want us to sign a lease as well,but since we are waiting for assisted housing,we don't want to do that. It just sucks all around.

Adam's stressed,I'm stressed and the kids are feeling it. Josh doesn't speak to me lately unless it's to whine or complain about something. The little boys are acting up and pushing my buttons.

I'm sick again,I keep getting sinus infections every month. The boys are sick so I guess I should take out the sanitizer and clorox wipes and start scrubbing. However..(see motivation comment above)

I hope that this is just one of those days and that it won't turn into one of those weeks.

...when I used to post comments on blogs?

Yeah,those were good times.

Things haven't slowed down much. It seems like it's one thing after another around here.

Everyone has these super cute blog posts and while I can't always comment,I do read most of them.

Just wanted to say that I love you all and I hope to get out of this blogging funk soon.

It's been crazy around here lately and it's only going to get more insane with the holidays coming up. 6 more weeks until Christmas!

The kids had half days during parent-teacher conferences so we had errands and appointments almost every day.

I finished Christmas shopping for my kids. Now I have to buy for everyone else.

Two days after Josh's dental check-up,Brady lost a crown so back to the dentist we went.

Savvy's 4 month check-up is in 10 days.

We are moving sometime within the next few months. We don't know where yet,but that makes it more exciting,right?

Day 29

~~Day 29 – Something you could never get tired of doing.~~


Honestly I don't think that there is anything that answers that question. There are many things that I love to do but I still like to take a break once in awhile. I love reading,watching my shows and playing on the internet but sometimes it just doesn't interest me. That is usually when my house gets clean. ;)

Day 28

~~Day 28 – Your favorite movie.~~

Yet another question to which I have multiple answers. If I absolutely have to pick just one movie,it would be "While You Were Sleeping". It came out a week before Adam and I got married. He went with me and his sisters,(back when it was easier to talk him into seeing "chick flicks"). I <3 Sandra Bullock in this movie. My SIL's and I still talk in quotes from this movie. It's just an all around fun show! :)

Halloween activities!

The kids and I made cookies this year. I bought a bucket of Halloween cookie cutters,frosting,decorating gel and sprinkles. Josh narrated the whole time,pretending he was hosting a cooking show. ( I think I've been watching the Food Network too much lately)
Although being a chef is one of the jobs he wants to have when he grows up,so I guess it's good practice.

Someone REALLY didn't want us to make cookies. Thankfully she calmed down between the baking phase and the decorating phase.

On Friday there was a costume parade at the kids' school,followed by class parties. The weather was just perfect! Brady was very sad that we had to leave and couldn't stay for the par-tays.

My beautiful pink fairy!

The old school vampire...no sparkling and wind chimes here!

Savvy was happy most of the time. This was right before the crying started.

My sweet little guys..Camden was happy and totally cheesin'! But Brady? Not so much.

My SIL invited us to her ward's trunk or treat on Saturday night. It was pouring rain and COLD! The kids got a few treats and then we went back to the warm and toasty house. Luckily the kids had a fun night and didn't complain about the lack of trick or treating.

Batman,Pink Fairy,Vampire and Iron Man...the drenched versions.

Josh and Brianna pose while Brady and Camdy stare.

My adorable little pumpkinhead!

On Saturday,Adam carved the kids' pumpkins. My dad grew all of these in his yard. In order from left to right...Savvy's, Camdy's, Brady's, Brianna's and Joshie's. I can't even lift Joshie's pumpkin,it's huge!

It was a fun week and I hope the rest of you had a great holiday too!

P.S. - Don't pay attention to my messy house. KTHXBYE.

Day 26

Day 26 – A photo of somewhere you’ve been to.

Beautiful Hawaii! Adam and I went there in 2007 and we were by ourselves for a whole week! We had so much fun,we would love to go there again one day.

Darling babies!

My SIL, Jenn, took this pic of my niece Isabella and my sweet Savvy. They are the same size but Isabella is 6 weeks old..Savvy is 3 months old. I have such a petite little girly. :)

As you can see,she was thrilled to have her picture taken.

Halloween pics of my kids coming soon!!

Day 25

~~Day 25 – What’s in your purse?~~

snack bar
various medicines
lip gloss

Right now I use a diaper bag most of the time and just put my wallet inside it. I love purses though. Here is my new one which I bought on sale for less than $15! It is dark purple..it makes me happy. :)
