I am alive

I's hard to believe. I miss blogging. I really do. I miss capturing all those moments, but lately, I haven't even had time to think about my moments.

I'm done! I did it! I made it through taking 11 hours of classes, working full time and raising a family (with a TON of help from Eric!!)! But, I did it!

I'm so glad my semester is over, but I'm ready to keep on keepin on. Gotta love Joe Dirt!

Things are great. I have 2 weeks off before I start summer school. I am quitting working full time and will hopefully have more time for the family and for studying. I'm anxiously awaiting the beginning of June when I will find out if I made it into the keep your fingers crossed.

The kiddos are doing GREAT! Mason is getting way too big and so is Savannah. I seriously can't believe she is going to be 2 in about a month. That's just messed up. I'm going to go find some pictures to post because it's been awhile! :)

I totally suck!

Seriously. I suck.

I haven't blogged in over 3 months. :(
However, when you think about all the things and accomplishments that I have had in the last 3 months, that may explain it! ;-)
First off, I started back to school in January. I'm taking 11 hours of classes on top of working full time. So, my free time is spent with Mason, Savannah, Eric, My anatomy book and notes, my statistics book and notes and psychology. Nuts! :) Classes are going GREAT! I'm loving it, even though it's a TON of work! I just keep saying that it'll all be worth it in the end!
One of my other major accomplishments is that I've lost over 20 lbs! YAY ME! I started back on weight watchers and it's been GREAT! I haven't been this skinny in over 5 years! I'm very excited about it! :) I'm also super proud of Eric...he's lost 20 lbs too and is going to run the Mini Marathon! I think that our losing weight and exercising together has been really helpful individually!
The kiddos are doing great! Savannah is starting to really talk a lot! I was getting worried, but she's coming around. She's got one HECK of an attitude, which makes every day a little more interesting than the next. :) Mason is going through a little bit of a testing phase. He's always testing Eric and I and how far he can go. It's fantastic! NOT!!!!
Here are some updated pics....I'll try to update more often!

My quirky little girl.

Let me start with this...

Here is my Vannah on Sunday morning. Just playing along with her new kitchen set. Keep in mind, Santa CHOSE this kitchen because of all of the features on the bottom including the refrigerator, oven, etc. however, the only thing she wants to play with is the after catching her climbing on top of it a few times, we brought a step stool over...and now she's content.

Please note...the shoes. This girl LOVES shoes. Seriously. What's even more interesting is that the shoes that she loves the most are Mason's! She gets home from school everyday, takes her shoes off, and puts a pair of his on. It's insane!

What I'm trying to say is that she cracks me up! I guess it makes her so loveable...even through her drama queen fits that she throws!!!!

Tell me Mason...

We had another Santa encounter, this time at my work.

Check us out...

Here are just a few of the MANY questions that Mason asked Santa Claus.

  • Santa, why do you have boots on OVER your tennis shoes?

  • Santa, why do you have a hat on?

  • Santa, where do you live?

  • Why do you live in the North Pole?

  • Where is the North Pole?

  • Where are your reindeer?

  • Where is your sled?

  • Where did you get my present at Santa?

He sure is ONE inquisitive little boy!

I know...I know...

It's been awhile. Eric and I went to Vegas and it's been crazy at work and I've lacked the time to update my blog. :(

Let me start with a funny post.

Mason and Santa. :)

Ask Mason what he's asking Santa for Christmas and he says everytime...a Lighting McQueen Race track. And for 3, saying the same thing and being that consistent means a lot!

So, last weekend, at Eric's work, they hosted a Breakfast with Santa...and Mason was SO excited to see Santa and tell him what he wanted. So, he gets on Santa's lap....

tells santa what he wants..."A Lightning McQueen race track" and chit chats for a few.

Mason gets down from Santa's lap...looks at me and says..."Well, where's my race track?"

I had to explain to him that Santa doesn't bring the presents until Christmas, etc. It was hilarious! I love that kid!

Treats on Thursday!

I will continue my theme of things I love about the winter to add one of my favorite winter treats.

If you don't know already...I am addicted to candy cane EVERYTHING!

I bathe myself in Candy Cane scented body wash. Spray my candy cane perfume. Burn a candy cane candle and indulge in these fantastic creations....

That's right my friends....some DE-Lightful Candy Cane Kisses. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love them.

If you love me...go out and buy me a bag for Christmas now. :) I'll wait.... :)
