please please please watch

must watch if you are an american and care about your future. you need to know about what he is saying here and has been saying for years. this effects you! and everyone else you care about! even those you don't care about. it effects everyone!

if you want to watch any of his other episodes from this past month, which i suggest you do go to he really is the only one telling the whole story and exposing truth. i really can testify to that since i have one channel in my house (no cable and the bunny ears still get one local abc channel) and the mainstream "news" that i can see is good morning america. they aren't even talking about egypt anymore and barely even talked about libya this morning. please watch him. you need to know about this stuff!

puddle jumping

had a blast yesterday afternoon taking the kids out in the rain. i needed to do a photoshoot. i have always had ideas in my mind of photos i would love to shoot in the rain and so i needed to get out there and get some. and the littles needed to get out of the house. the rain never stopped yesterday so it was now or go crazier! and they both just absolutely loved it. miss r just ran down the driveway and to the creek while little guy was strapped to me in the ergo with me caring more about my camera getting wet then covering him with the umbrella. he just talked and talked the whole time while holding his hands out to touch the drops. it was a fantastic fifteen minutes!

i will post more soon but just wanted to update with this one!

nesting :: hubby project

so the ol' nesting bug has kicked it into high gear around here and early. i've been expressing my need to purge "stuff" for weeks to my husband (probably in a not so great way at times) but saturday night i expressed how much i hate feeling unorganized and really would like one of our many closets that gets the least attention to be more customized to fit our stuff. he drew a blueprint of custom shelves he could build and told me he could do it all in one day. i said great get to it ;)

the next day the kids and i headed out of town to visit my mom for her bday and tg wanted to stay home to build. he is such a man. you give him a project and he runs with it. i really do love that he loves to build and do projects. it really comes in handy. especially during these three years of nesting!

so i returned to this beautiful closet. now it isn't custom like he said, but it is better! i mean do i need to say more after seeing this picture. look at all the space for me to put stuff into. and so neatly organized! oh he for sure made my day...week! now if i just had time to myself to get everything i need to in those baskets!

happy birthday mom

i took the kids up to my moms yesterday to celebrate her pair of fives birthday. we brought her some purple flowers and a carrot cake and took her to her favorite place for a sushi lunch. later on us girls went out shopping at marshalls.
we had a blast and i'm sure my mom enjoyed her birthday celebration. miss r enjoyed getting a new tutu from nana and enjoying some of nana's bday cake!

happy birthday mom. we love you and are so grateful for you in our lives. you are such a blessing to us!

unordinary friday

i'm trying to get better at posting, knowing that family and friends from afar love hearing about our little life. i have a hard time posting without pictures, but if i wait for a picture for every post, well then, my posts are far and few between. so instead i will just start posting with or without ( and probably more without) photos.

today we had an unordinary friday. although nothing special, it just was unordinary. first we woke up to, may i say, weather! not something typical around here in sb. but yes, wind, cold, wet, weather. we headed to church for a morning book study i'm apart of. and on the way there miss r says, where we going? i tell her we are going to church. and then i realize, she's never asked that before. wow, she just put that whole sentence together and just asked me where are we going? how grown up is she?!

after church we hurry home because tg was taking me to a political luncheon at the reagan ranch center here in town. a patient of his at work gave him free tickets and we just happened to find a last minute sitter and so we went! it was fantastic to be surrounded with a bunch of likeminded people politcally, listening to a man speak the truth about our current administration and current events here in the US. it was inspiring. really mostly for me because if you really know my hubby, you know he was made to be in that arena. and really being there listening to this intelligent man behind a podium, hearing a lot the same things come out of his mouth that my man talks about daily just revealed to me again how wise tg is for his age and how this truly is his gifting and quite possibly his calling. it inspired me not only to pray for our country, but really to pray for what God has in store for our family. it gave me a new fresh vision.

then my night was alone with the kids as tg had to dj country night at local place in town. two kids by yourself for bedtime can be quite daunting, but tonight we managed to keep calm and cool. it was actually quite fun. r can really make h laugh these days and that pretty much just melts my heart!

and to top off my night alone, after the kiddos went to sleep i enjoyed my dinner of homemade tomato soup with garlic cheese toast and caesar salad while watching...don't laugh...step up 3! if you know me, you know i have dancing...and dancing movies, even if they are super cheesey. and boy was this one. but all the great dancing moves was worth all the cheese. if you love dancing too, i do recommend viewing. it has all kinds of dancing, even children doing things you only can dream of doing. it was pretty, well, amazing. kinda weird to say about a chessey dance movie, but really the dancing is a-maz-ing! i only wish i were not prego again just so i could go back to classes and get my groove on again. it's now been two years since i have danced any sort of hip hop routine class, and i truly crave it!

well hope your day as unordinary in a good way. mine sure was.

today i am incredibly grateful for...david horowitz who isn't afraid to speak the truth when it might not be "politically correct". thank you david for your truth speaking today.

saddest part of the day :: watching miss r trip while dancing in her room and hit her head super hard on the wall.
greatest part of the day :: taking the kids to the zoo
