These are the days....

I was in a very strange and again....
complex mood.

I really wasn't a very nice person to be around
I was a total grouch
So much for my peace, lovin', happy mom attitude..
yeah baby... you gotta believe it... it was quite scary

i didn't exercise
I didn't watch my portions
food portions that is

I don't even know what I did...
i didn't even keep the kids on task

I think I just walked around in circles all day confused and not sure where I was...
Okay....I knew where I was, but you know what I mean....
It was
"one of those days"

Yeah, it was a rather complex day
But today..... Oh today.... was a much, much better day of wonderful moments shared with my babies.....

Donnie worked from home today, so I had access to my van
remember....his car is broken down...i'm usually stranded at home :( last week we went to the a huge sink hole that is a geological site. Didn't post about this field trip. we did learn alot though

So i had some places to be.....
the world was waiting to feel our feet skipping on the concrete, grass, and leaves....

we headed to a couple really fun place..

the first place
we ventured was to a quaint, little secluded playground with just a few beautiful houses across the street from it.

this home is the one Donnie and I say we want..So Southern

The playground has some rather strange play equipment I think it's more for the big kids... Really..... my little boys were so bored there....

Now the olders kids had a was fun snapping some pics of the crew though

Then we headed to a nearby lake which is infested with alligators.... but today all we saw was one little baby alligator who kept following us where ever we moved.....

I think he was a little hungry since it was around lunch time... and for some reason he kept following my toddler... quite creepy...

and thank God Ana was in the sling because that place is not very baby friendly...
at any moment a child could lose their balance and right into the alligators mouth...

bat houses across the street from the lake....right around dusk they all fly's really cool

It was so much fun
even though it was about 100*

I forgot the sunscreen!

I should know better than to leave the sunscreen at home...

we should just eat a bit of it every night so it's in our blood system...

hmmm......can we do that???? :)

Soooooo..... when I lay my head tonight
I will reflect on this day
a time of memorable mommy moments
a beautiful day
cherished deep in my heart
to be remembered on those....
"not so good days"


I call days like this "Spinning my wheels" days
I don't think I would do well with alligators!

It sounds like it might be around that time of the month? That is exactly how I feel and act when Aunt Flo comes to visit.

Wishing you a better today!

BTW, I'm so glad you are blogging again!

Love all your pictures! I should take my kids to Lake Alice sometime soon. I do worry about the alligators eathing the little ones, though! Have to take Stu with me...

We should meet at dark some night and watch the bats come out. That would be fun!

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
