The Random Adventures of A Family of 6!!!

I have decided instead of trying to post about everything individually... I am just going to post it all together whenever I get a chance!  So life has been crazy busy, it seems like I run, run, and run some more!  I love this time of year, so we are just enjoying every single bit of it!
 This was one of my attempts at getting a picture of all of the kids together... We ended up just doing individual shots of each one!
 Me... My Momma... and my cute lil Sister!  Headed to see Breaking Dawn!!!
 My Granny Honey with my little Avery!
 My little moody man... in this picture he is happy!!! Yippee!!!

 Uh Oh... I've been caught in the CHOCOLATES!!!
 Granny Honey... Sarah... Miss MaCee!
Chocolate making day! 
 The big boys helping grandma dip!
 My sister and I decided to fight the crowds @ the Park City outlets on Black Friday @ MIDNIGHT... this momma is to old for that, but it was so fun!

Blah... Blah... Blah...

That is what most of you are probably going to be thinking as you are reading this post.  It is going to be a HUGE vent session, and you probably really could care less... so if you don't read on... don't worry it won't hurt my feelings.  First of all I am so sorry I have been a big huge busy slacker!  I was looking on my camera the other day so I could find some picture to put on the old bloggy blog... and guess what... none... I have a few pictures from Halloween but I didn't even get very many great ones then either.  Ah... Its because I am OBSESSED!  You see we have started the process of trying to adopt again... now some of you have been through this whole process... for those of you who haven't it is FUN!  Most days I love that we have been so blessed... and get to experience this amazing blessing.  Today and last week it is making my miserable... it is all I think about... I mean obviously I am busy with life but every second that I stop its on my mind,  I'm so sorry to sound sooooo negative about it... I just wish that I could have a little better control of myself!!!  So that was my little vent... now onto the fun of it.  We are working with the same agency that we used with MaCee's adoption.  I love them they brought us our first little princess.  Because we do have 4 children  we think it may be a little bit harder this time around... so we have decided to not only go through one agency we are applying with multiple agencies and the help of consultants... and praying like crazy that our sweet little angel will find us.  This is a little off subject... but tonight after we had put the kids down Avery came in and said, "Mom I know that you have been wanting a baby sister for MaCee... So I prayed for her."  I love kids!!!  So if anyone makes it to this point in my post... Pray for us... and selfishly I am going to ask you to Pray for me... Pray that the Lord will guide me... and let me know patience... and peace... because I know that he has a plan... I just sometimes have a hard time waiting for his plan to play out!  Oh and for any of you Adoption Veterans... If you have any suggestions... They would be appreciated! Thanks!

When Daddy's Away... Mommy and the little Monkeys will PLAY!!!

Every year since Mike and I were married, Mike has passed on hunting season.  Not this year, daddy has been gone ALL week... and what have we been doing you may ask?  Well I little bit of everything!!!  We have secretly been planning our week long party.  The first day I told the older boy they could pick WHATEVER they wanted for dinner... they both yelled PANCAKES!!!  I love Mike but pancakes for dinner... I can handle that!  The second night they wanted Spaghetti Tacos (an ICarly special!)  We will be SOOOO happy when daddy gets home tomorrow... but we have had a blast!

 I set up the boys tent in Avery's room so they could have a lttle camp out!  Brax is grumpy because I wouldn't shut the door to the tent... little moody man!

Little Dally has finally turned NICE... oh my goodness what a relief!  He has been so mean to me, if I ever say I love you.. he swiftly replies... I don't love you!  The last couple of weeks he has been so sweet, he tells me mommy your the best ever!  Ahhhh I am loving this new little attitude!

My Lil Mocha Baby!!!

I researched & researched for months before we adopted MaCee. I researched hair, skin, etc, etc!!! Nothing I read could have prepared me for what it would be like. When we were in the hospital it seemed as though her hair was a little wavy, but mostly straight.
I learned very quickly that this was not true... Our first day home I washed her hair and this is what I saw!  Curls... Curls... Curls!  In the beginning these curls were EASY!  Now they have gotten longer and a little bit harder to comb out. 
So recently I decided I needed to get back to researching... After multiple videos online, I decided to try yarn braids!!!  I think they turned out pretty cute... and I can't complain because the only cost was 2 dollars in yarn!  MaCee was such a little sweetie and sat for 3 hours while I finished he whole head.  Have I ever said what a little angel she is... I don't know many 17 month old babies that would sit for 3 hours!  Love this little girl... and all of the wonderful things she is bringing into our lives!

 Over the last 17 months our lil mocha babies hair has changed in so many ways... but I think I have learned as we've gone, and we are finally getting it figured out!!!

All Good Things Must Come To An End...

As the end of summer draws near, my heart is filled with sadness!!! I hear people getting excited for the kids to go back to school... I on the other hand am so so sad!  Avery will be in 1st grad, and my little Brax will be a kindergartner... Tear Tear!  We have been trying to have as many fun filled days as possible before its over.
 Avery lost his first tooth... and has 2 more that are close!
 The sweetest little angel feet!  MaCee enjoyed vacation!!!
 Daddy and the boys had a blast in the pool!
 Mac & Brax hangin' out on the Pontoon boat,
 MMMmmm momma these rocks are DELICIOUS!
 And these ones.... wow Bear Lake has yummy yummy rocks!
 Mac & Momma relaxin'
 My little Lemon head!

 Do you know why I think I am such a wonderful mother... because I let my baby play in the street! :) Just Kiddin! I kept saying MaCee come back... No momma No momma is all she had to say to me!
Oh my the fun that you can have at grandma's house!!! I can't wait to use this as blackmail on the boys when they are teenagers!

Bubble Babies!!!

Something about cute little babies in the bath just melts my heart!!! I love it, they are so CLEAN and Angelic! I tried to get Dally to join in but he was being a little grumpy, so its just little Miss & the big boys.
 These bubbles are PRETTY fun!
 Yes... yes... I know I am the cutest little girl in the world!!!
 What is my silly brother doing???
 I am 3, therefore I may have random mood swings at ANY moment...
 Like this!!! Mad happy it changes from moment to moment when you are 3!
 I can wash my own hair mom!
 This face is MaCee's face don't ask me where she got it from... but she scrunches her nose up and its sooo cute!
 Yes... now I am mad again... because being 3 is rough!!!
 This little kitchen is the one that I played with when I was a little girl... I am wanting to refinish it, but just can't decide what to do for sure... any suggestions???
 I LOVE that MaCee and the boys have a love of reading it makes me soooo HaPPy!!!
 Oh Braxton... this sweet little boy will be starting Kindergarten this year... It breaks my heart!  Half of my little ones will be in school. :( Tear... Tear... Tear!!! I guess we just need to have another one! :)
Avery Joe... Love Love Love this little cutie!!! He is growing into such a little man I can't stand it... but I am so proud of the wonderful person that he is! 

A nice hot bath will fix just about anything…
