Getting the house ready to sell

Well I have not posted in quite some time so I thought I would. We are getting ready to put the house on the market. Sure we still have no idea when or where we are going but it just seems like the house will hold us back from being together as a family once we get word of what is going on with Andy and the Marines. There is so much cleaning and organizing to do...yuck! I did however have fun re decorating Eliana's room. I felt like the room needed some more pizazz. I posted some pictures below. I will let you know once we find out where we are going.

Visit to see Santa

Well yesterday I took the kids to see Santa. I know it is a little early but I can't stand the crowds and long lines. We got there and there was only 4 kids in front of us...not to bad. After that we played in the fake snow at the mall. It is really neat, I want to get the kids some but it is very expensive. I wonder if they will have a after Christmas sale. LOL

Elias shows off his red hair...

Elias wanted to use some left over hair color from Halloween to have red hair like his mommy. He looks pretty cute with red hair. This boy really likes to ham it up for the camera...as you can see.

Tina Turner Hair

Okay so I took a picture so everyone could see how crazy my hair has been. Everyday I wake up my hair is crazy and standing straight up. The girl who cut my hair gave me way to many bangs. In the past I would cry at how horrible my hair looks...now I just laugh and try to pretend looking like a troll doll is the latest style. So here's to hoping my hair grows out fast.

Miss Eliana turned 8...we had a fashion party !

Well yesterday the 18th was Eliana's birthday and we had a great time celebrating it with family and friends. It is always so much fun to see how much the kids love the parties. However I know this will be the last time we do a dress-up party for Miss Eliana. I think she may be getting too old now. When they turn 8 years old they call them tweens. Not a girl but not yet a teen. I feel a little sad, but wow how proud we are to have such a smart and wonderful daughter. She is and will always be our little gift from God.

It's not how much you spend

Wow I just had to post this because it was a real eye opener for me. We have always spoiled the kids with tons of Christmas gifts...but this year we have decided to only give 3 each. If it is good enough for baby Jesus it is plenty for our little angels. Well I have been feeling like the 3 gifts have got to be expensive really nice gifts because they are only getting the 3. God has opened my eyes in a big way to see it's not how much you spend that makes a gift special. The saying that the kids play with the box more than the toy is really not that off. I went to Goodwill yesterday and bought a book for Eliana knowing she is are little book worm. I didn't think much of it...just another book. However the kids thought it was the best gift in the entire world. All 3 kids played non-stop for 3 hrs straight with this book. It was so cute. It really helped me to see it is more about the thought of what your child personally likes than whats the latest and greatest holiday toy is.

Happy Halloween 07

I just wanted to post some pictures of the kids all dressed up as pirates...they are so cute and funny. Elias keeps screaming ah hoy mates....arh. I made little Kalie's costume in like 10 minutes with things from around the house. Not to bad of a job if I say so my self. Well everyone have a safe and Happy Halloween.

Welcome Home Our Hero

Well I know I have not posted in forever...sorry. We have been very busy enjoying our time with our daddy. Words can not describe how great it is to have him home. The kids love playing with their daddy(he is such a great daddy). He spoiled me rotten...I have never felt so love. I do not think I did any work he did it all. I feel so blessed to have him as my hubby.It is great to know that after 8 longs months of being apart...we are together now.

Making something out of nothing

Well this I found to be quite funny so I wanted to share with you guys. I cut off a pair of pants today to make the shorts you see in the photos. While I was doing this Eliana asked if she could use the left over legs to play dress up. I thought what are you going to do with that? Well she made her and Kalie some slinky dresses. Wow where they skin tight...it made me sad because you could tell Eliana liked her sexy look. Oh how young it starts. I think she looks so much older in these pictures due the clothes she has on. Goes to show I will be very careful what type of clothes I let her buy and wear.

This Sunday was anything but a day of rest....

Well we had a great Sunday. Got to go to church this morning. I have such sweet and wonderful friends there. I will miss my church so bad if we move:( Then we came home and had 2 little friends over to play Jane & Collin. Eliana and Elias just love to have friends over. It was amazing how well the kids got along together. It is so funny how I have 4 kids at the house to play and its no big deal. In the past it would have been to much for me...but now it's just fun! Then we had a our new neighbors over for dinner. Her name is Sunshine"cool huh" she has a very well behaved son who is 5 years old named Skyler. We feel very blessed to have such wonderful friends.
