Its Official

I am pregnant and can no longer keep it a secret, its very obvious I have "popped" I guess thats what happens when your on baby #3 and your stomach muscles mock you with there lack to just hold it in a little longer. So here it is my prego belly at 15 weeks. I feel quite fat and awkward and am pretty dang miserable after 9 weeks of being sick Sick SICK I think I am seeing the end of it ( I hope, man I really hope) Still have my crap days but things are getting better.
Anyway baby number 3 is due May 25th and we are very excited (and scared to death) Olivia cannot stop talking about her new sister even though we continue to try and prep her that it may be a boy. So now she has resorted to begging for a sister in her prayers. But of course we will ALL love what we get.

Hugging my kids just a little longer

So while blogstalking today I came across this on one of my friends blogs. I was instantly hit with how blessed I truly am, for every moment and child Heavenly Father has given me to hold and guide through life!
I love my kids and after reading this womans blog, I will hold my kids just a little longer tonight read that extra story and strive to be more patient and loving with my kids.
And when I am having a bad day and my kids are driving me CRAZY I will read this again and be reminded of how blessed I really am!!

Today was my turn to host our weekly playdate group. I look forward to this every week, not only does it allow for Olivia to play with her friends and learn some social skills, but I get to have ADULT conversations with the other moms YAY! Anyway I am so proud of my craftiness today (craftiness does not come easy for me) we made "Princess Tiana" crowns and for snack we had "Prince Naveen frog" cupcakes. The girls loved there crowns and had a blast "kissing" there frogs and then picking the eyes and mouths off the frogs and making them talk to eachother. For example "Hi I am a one eyed frog prince" Kids are awesome, it was so funny.
This guy got kinda smashed he did look better earlier :)

Food Storage

So I really really wish I could say this is what my food storage stash looks like. But sadly I must say it really looks more like..........

........ this.
Ok maybe not THAT bad but really if a major disaster occured I would not be a very happy camper. Don't get me wrong we have "food" but we rotate through the good stuff so fast all I am really left with in large quantity is chilli and green beans and our 1 year food supply boxes from the cannery and honestly when it comes down to it I wonder how the food in those mystery cans is really going to taste. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised, or maybe not.
Anyway there is a reason for my rambling, the other day as I was mulling over my concern for my lack of food storage.
My sister called and invited me to a "food party" at her house she's like "Its like a Mary Kay party but they sell food" Ugh I shuddered at the thought I DESPISE Mary Kay parties. But I am supportive and awesome so I went. Upon arrival I loaded up a plate with food and plopped in a chair ready to endure the next hour.
Freeze dried food was the subject of the night and when she told us that the chicken salad I was chowing down on was made from there freeze dried chicken, onions and celeryand the juicy bluberries in the muffins were too I was sold. I know freeze dried meat sounds weird but it was so good, and it may lack some nutrients (maybe not sure) but when disaster strikes I know you will all be flocking to my house for my chicken and ham (also delicious) You just add water and BAM soft yummy bluberries, BAM, strawberries,mangos, oranges (ok that one was weird) and my favorite one BROWNIES mix!! Just add water because really unless you have a chicken, you willl not have any eggs. So anyway if you made it this far in my very long rant congratulations! I am super excited for this find and plan on stocking up on alot of there products especially the fruit. Of course I will continue buying and rotating my cans but I feel good now knowing I will have a little extra flare to add to my dreary emergency food :)

4 eyes

Well its happened I am now officially a member of the 4 eyes club. I have been in denial for quite some time but finally broke down and went to the eye doctor. No surprise I was given glasses. So here they are not sure if I like this yet or not but I guess this is what happens when you start to get old. :)

Teagan was basically wondering where he was the whole timeWhoops put it twice
We made it on the Jumbo tron YAY!

Olivia insisted she get her poster signed so we stood in a ridiculous long line

She was beyond excited to talk to the girls she kept saying "you did such a good job"
"I am going to do flips when I am big" and finally "your awesome"We had such a fun time. Olivia kept saying "this was the best day ever" *sigh* "what a nice day"
Haha she's awesome!

My baby turns1!

Teagan turned one yesterday. I can't believe its been one year since he joined our little family. Teagan has been such a blessing to us he has the sweetest little spirit and a very busy personality. He has kept us hopping since he discovered movement @ 2-3 months by rolling everywhere then crawling at 6 months and WALKING @ 9. I have loved every second with him, and look forward to watching him grow and develop more and more. Happy Birthday Teagan!! I love my little guy!
Here is my attempt @ making a him a dinosaur cake
with a dino egg.( yes thats supposed to be a egg).

I didn't get to many pics, we mostly videoed

Just getting started!!


All done, so yummy!
