A much needed break

Sunday, May 31, 2009

You know, you don't really realize how stressed and just how much you need a break from reality until you finally get one. I came home from the beach yesterday feeling like a totally different woman, even today I am feeling so much better then I have in weeks. This day trip for us was so much fun. It was the kids and I (KS had to work, and has no interest in beach trips) My parents, sisters, and my sister's boyfriend Dylan. I cannot wait until next weekend when we get to do it all again!!! Who knows maybe next weekend KS will be able to join us.

I can honestly say that I am the happiest now that I have been in years, I truly feel like our family is complete... things just cannot get any better than this.
Kiale can swim now, well underwater, he loves it. He wasn't a fan of the ocean and preferred the pool, but he still had a wonderful time.

Colin on the other hand throughly enjoyed the ocean and would rather been down there then at the pool.

Boy, do I love these kids! I am one lucky momma to have been blessed with the three of them!
This was Cayleigh-Grace's first time to the beach and to a pool, and I have to admit my little water bug loved every minute of it! She wasn' t so sure about things at first and was quite clingy and a little fussy at times but she was wonderful.

Cayleigh-Grace does not like the ocean... see I have the pictures to prove it!
After we got back home we met up with my husband, the non-beach-loving person that he is at the club that we belong to and had fried fish and fried gator tail for dinner. The boys were even able to catch a toad! (Yes, I realize they are a bit sunkissed... it happens)
The perfect end to a perfect day

Well... this was the minute my daughter was born.

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not finally get around to taking Cayleigh-Grace's 8 month photo shoot... only two weeks late. (The pictures of her in blue are from the shoot)

I did not have a wonderful time Monday making bows for my sisters to wear during cheerleading with my mom. We did not have wonderful bonding time with Mother, Daughter, and Granddaughter. It was not amazing and I cannot wait to do it again.

I have not been totally putting off taking Colin in for his 4 year old checkup and shots... this has nothing to do with how Kiale and I are against the ridiculous amount of shots that they give children. I am not going to space Colin's shots out throughout the entire summer, so his system does not go into overload with all of immunizations at one time.

I also have not been putting off taking Cayleigh-Grace in to get the remainder of her 6 month shots... maybe I will take them in once school is out... I will not be continuing to space out ALL of Cayleigh-Grace's immunizations as well.

I did not open my own Etsy store that you should not totally go and check out! Love and Grace Designs!

I am not BEYOND excited about my sister volunteering at the Birth Center where I gave birth to Cayleigh-Grace via waterbirth. I am not hoping that this experiance will open her eyes to how much better Birth Center/Midwife births are than hospital births. I would never be EXTREAMLY jealous that she is going to have this amazing experiance. This would not be the same place I am planning on going to Midwifery school at in 3 years... maybe she will decide to become a midwife with me, that would not be beyond awesome!!

Build -a-Bear Trip 5-5-09

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Well a week ago today we took a field trip to Build-a-Bear with the boys school. I had the boys take their previous stuffies from there and just get new clothes, since we tend to be on stuffy overload. Cayleigh-Grace on the other hand was able to get her first Build-a-Bear, a lamb, this sweet lamb has quickly become her lovie. She adores this lamb and wont go anywhere without it! While we were there we were able to meet up with Daisy (her mom and I graduated high school together). She is to the day two weeks younger the Cayleigh-Grace.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not end up sewing with my 8 month old for a good 15 minutes earlier this week since she woke up during the night and she did not want to sit with her daddy. I have not been blessed with a complete Momma's girl! That would not thrill me!

I was not thrilled to open up my own Etsy store this week. It is not called Love and Grace Designs, and you should not go HERE and check it out!

I did not order business cards only to realize that them email address I listed on the card is wrong, it reads love&grace when it should read loveandgrace... Thankfully they were only $9 for a hundred and that includes shipping.

I did not have a fabulous time photographing my sister and her long time boyfriend Dylan heading out to their Junior prom. I have not already spent and hour+ editing their pictures, and I do not still have another hour+ to go.

I did not decided that since I really am not three months pregnant that I should really start working out. This way I do not look like I am expecting... which is what I currently look like... darn split abs... I do not still have a fingers width+ separation in my ab muscles that needs to close... Anyone need a running/workout buddy??
