We've Been BUSY Bees!

I know, I've been absent. I am sorry! We have been SO busy! As you will see below....

Look! Matty's room is no longer his room! It's our new playroom!!! Matty is now sleeping in with Adam, on the bottom bunk. They love sharing a room! :) And I LOVE having an organized playroom. I have Kelli to thank for the inspiration behind the bins and labeling them!

We've been to the zoo twice, so far this spring! It's been amazingly warm here, and I am not complaining! Oh, and look, our favorite BEAN! :)

We went to visit Grammie, at the nursing home (long story! She's not doing well.) and we saw a firetruck!

Also while at Grammie's we like to get inside of the food warmers.

We've also been to Birthday parties, a wedding, and the park! It's been.... BUSY!

And all of this while I am in my final week of this semester. And no spring break! What's that about?! Onto new classes, next week! yay! :)

Hope you're all doing well! I promise I'll be "back" as soon as I find the time and motivation!

All post....

I know. No post. I am surprised I'm not being badgered yet!! ;)

I'm still behind. Still trying to catch-up/keep up homework.

It's been NICE here! We've been to the zoo, park, and I've cleaned up the front yard!!

Ash is home! yay! :) We are concerting it up tomorrow!

The boys are insomniacs. We've had many nights where mommy has only slept 3-4 hours.


So I drink....




What have you been up to?

Carli... and Randomness

I am so behind. SO behind. On everything. So, I am just now getting around to finishing up Carli's Birthday photos. Here are my favs. Isn't she adorable??

Today we're headed to Clayton's ELEVENTH Birthday! My first nephew is eleven. I can't believe it!


We may also have visitors coming this week! I am keeping my fingers crossed!!! :) I'll tell you who it is, once I know they are coming! EEK! :)


Ashley is home this week! I am so happy. :)


I have so much homework to do, it's not even funny. These classes are ROUGH this time.


I had an amazing time with one of my best friends, from high school, yesterday. I forgot to take my camera. Do you believe it? GRR!


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! If I haven't commented on your blogs, don't hate me! I'm just so swamped and tired, right now! I still love you all! :)

Theme Thursday: Restful

I am not good at resting.... So I am thankful that my kiddos ARE! :)

This is Adam's new bunk bed. He loves it and thinks he's SO cool, because he can get into the bed various ways (i.e. by not using the ladder and by climbing it like Spiderman).

Matty LOVES popcorn! He also loves sprawling out on the coffee table. Why? I have no idea. But he sure is cute doing it!!

Want to see more restful photos? Head over to The Land of K.A. to see more theme Thursday photos!

Never Leave a Camera ALONE!

This is what happens....

That's my step-dad, Chip. Can we all say.... CREEPY? ;) Good thing I love this guy or I'd be more afraid, than I am. ha ha. Makes for a good blog post, though, eh?!

So what did you win? I did say I would tell you today... Well... I can't tell you... because it's MY Birthday and since *I* had to wait to open MY presents, you have to wait TOO! :)

I'll ship out your presents, tomorrow, and then when you get them, I will tell everyone else. I know, I am mean. ;) CONGRATULATIONS!! :)

(email me your home addresses, and I'll get your presents out, soon! bams0803 at yahoo)

Why I am a slacker...

I know. I know. I posted a contest and then I left ya'll high and dry. I'll be honest, I've been unmotivated. I've also had a busy week! So here's my weekly wrap:

1) I spent the day with my daddy, on Tuesday. His knee is healing well, and he is going back to work on Sunday! (Thanks for all your prayers!)

2) Wednesday was playgroup. It was PACKED! Seriously the highest number of people, this year, for playgroup.

3) My poor car is still having some issues. So back to the shop for Kronk. Good ol' Kronk is costing us a lot of $$. Andy claims it's my birthday present. I don't believe him.

4) Adam hasn't been sleeping. Anyone else have this problem with their kids. He just will NOT sleep! And when he does sleep: night terrors. He's had 3 nights terrors this week, alone. We sat up with him last night, for a half-hour, with him just crying and crying, all while still asleep! ;(

5) I started spring cleaning this week. I've tackled Matty's room and parts of the kitchen. We actually have an ORGANIZED pantry! :)

6) Yesterday we went to storytime, saw Nana at Target, visited Nonnie and Pa, saw cousin Josiah, and had a really nice time. It was busy.

7) School! Ah! It's kicking my booty, this time around. A lot of busy work. Papers, papers, and more papers. Not so exciting.

8) Did you know I'm giving something away? Well, I am. Scroll down and sign-up to win! You have until midnight, tonight! Good luck!

9) I have videos due at the library. I think I have a fine. (I know, not on topic, but I just looked up and saw them!)

10) Matty just said, "ONE! TWO! GO!!!!!" ha ha ha. He's really quite cute.

10) Needs more coffee, if I am going to make it through the day! 6:30 awake time just isn't cool... you hear me kids?! bah!

Have a happy weekend!

A Very Happy Birthday, GIVEAWAY!!

What's that you say? It's my Birthday, so WHY am I giving away something?

Well..... because.... it's MY Birthday and I want there. ;)

So here's the deal:

1) I am giving away a present that I would like to get on my Birthday. (Trust me, I like nice things.... and fun things...and yummy things....)

2) The present will not be disclosed, until it is mailed out, on March 8th, 2009. (My actual Birthday)

3) Even if you don't have a blog you may participate.

Here are the rules for entry:

How many people can you get to wish me a happy birthday? The more people you get to wish me a happy birthday, the better chance you have at winning the prize!

All you have to do is:

1) Leave me a comment and wish me a happy Birthday (on this post). (There's one entry)

2) Then somehow get MORE people to wish me a happy birthday, but giving you credit for the wish.

I.E.- Post on your blog, your myspace or facebook, send out emails, post on your away messages on AIM...whatever.... Then have "Joe" come to this post and say: "Happy Birthday, Brittany! Sue sent me" etc. etc. (Who knows how many entries you can get??)

3) And then THAT person can do the same, and so forth and so forth.

4) I will then use to choose a winner! IF I choose a winner that has TWO participants (i.e. JOE and SUE) you will BOTH win something (SUE a little more of something, than Joe, because Sue did the "hard" work)

5) The contest will end on FRIDAY, March 6th, at midnight! The winner (or winners?!) will be announced on My Birthday, March 8th.

Have fun! Be Creative! and Good Luck!

Do YOU feel Lucky?!?!

Happy Birthday, Carli!

Happy FIRST Birthday, Carli !!

Ah... Miss C.... Last year, at this time, Aunt Brittany (and many others!) had yet to sleep, because we were awaiting your big entrance! AND Oh, baby, it was worth it! Seeing mommy being wheeled down the hall, seeing you all wrapped up, warm, in a blanket, was SO worth the wait! :)

I can't wait to see how you grow and learn, this coming year. Your Aunt Brittany, Uncle Andy, and two cousins love you VERY much! :) Happy Birthday, Carli!
