How you can tell....

That little Miss isn't feeling well!!!  MaCee has many things she loves, but two of her favorites are Patty Cake & Food!  This past week its seems like EVERYONE is sick.  Many of you know I am an essential oil addict, so of course I have been trying everyday to oil our little family up to prevent us from getting all of these little bugs that are floating around.  Well Thursday one finally got us, well MaCee.  Now back to the things that she loves it is a very rare occurrence that you can't get a smile out of her by singing Patty Cake, in her saddest moments (when Dalyn takes something from her) Patty Cake still makes her smile!  Next food, MaCee loves her food, I may have mentioned this before but I think she get that from me.  She loves everything, she eats more than the boys its so cute, and I'm so happy to have a little girl that enjoys food like I do!  It breaks my heart that she so sick she doesn't even get to enjoy her food & Patty Cake!

Valentines & MaCee's Cute Hair!!!

K be prepared for cheesy because this is!!!  Nine years ago I was stood up, I was feeling pretty lame.  My best friend at the time told me she new a cute guy that she was sure would love to take me out, so I agreed to go on my first blind date.  I could never have imagined that days, weeks, months, years later I would be head over heels in love with this "guy."  I am so lucky to get to be the women he comes home to every night.  I'm so blessed to get to be the mommy to his four little rugrats!!!  There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not thankful for my amazing life!
My friend came over with her little ones and we made Valentines cookies MaCee & the twins had so much fun!
I saw this cute hair idea on another blog a while ago.  MaCee's hair is finally long enough to try it out... So what do you think!!! I know she is such a cutie!

Braxton is 5 & I am.........................

This week has been filled with so much fun!  Braxton is a lover of life, he has loved having this be his Birthday week & he shared with me a little!  All week he has been saying to the other kids,"Don't do that its my Birthday" about anything that bothers him.  I know I talked a little about when he was born in a post a while back, but I'm going to again because he is such a little miracle! On the night of February 8th 2006 I wasn't feeling well, but only being 27 weeks along I figured it wasn't a big deal and I would just sleep it off.  The next morning I was in so much pain I could hardly even stand, so we called my midwife and asked what they wanted us to do. They told us to head to the nearest ER immediately.  When we got to the hospital I felt a gush of fluid thinking my water had broke I was so worried, well it hadn't but worse, I was bleeding ALOT!  Life flight was called, they checked me & I was dilated to a 7.  The whole time on life flight I kept praying that we would make it to Salt Lake because if not I didn't think this little man was going to make it!  We arrived in Salt Lake they hurried and put me under so they could deliver our little miracle baby.  He was born on 2/9/2006 at 2:59 PM weighing in at 2 lbs. 13 oz. & 17 inches, he was a BIG CHUNK!!! The next 8 weeks were a roller coaster, but we survived and 5 years later are so thankful that we get to be the parents of this little miracle boy!!!
To celebrate Braxton's Birthday & mine Mike took the day off and we headed to the city for 24 hours of fun!  Mike asked if I wanted to go out to a fancy restaurant & I said yes Olive Garden!  After a 45 minute wait, which ended up not being to bad the whole time everyone was googling over little miss celebrity MaCee we finally sat down and enjoyed a DELICIOUS meal!!!  That night we stayed and the Staybridge Inn & Suites in Salt Lake it was a blast if you get a chance take your kids.  They have a water park that is PERFECT for our kids age!  The next day was a blast Incredible Pizza Company, Frogurt, Costa Vida (my favorite) and the best part lots of fun times with my little family!!! Now for the fun part of this... How old am I bahahaha you'll never know!!! :)
Thanks to everyone for making our Birthdays so special!!!

A start to our February!

I have been so blessed in my life to have such amazing people as examples to me.  On the 1st we celebrated my "Granny Honeys" birthday, she turned 85, what a wonderful women.  She is the mother of 12 biological children, I think she is the person I get my love of being a mother from!  I remember her 80th birthday party we had a big party, it was on a Saturday I wasn't feeling that great, little did I know 5 days later I would be on life flight headed to Salt Lake to deliver my little Braxton 3 months early!  This Saturday we celebrated my Step Brother Forest's birthday.  I had to laugh he is Autistic, he loves to read so I decided to give him a little money to get a good book with.  When he opened the card and saw money he said in his disappointed voice "More money!"
Aunt Dorothy, Granny Honey, Kay Cook
Forest, Forest Jr., My mom, and 2 of the boys!
 My handsome hubby, MaCee, and Braxton
I don't wanna brag, but I think I am one of the luckiest girls in the world.  I am married to a guy that loves his family more than anything, even when sometimes he thinks I am crazy he still loves me and goes along with my little quests in life!
 Our little princess, and the sweetest little girl in the world & my aunt Dorothy
Our little Brax, who is going to be a big 5 year old on the 9th, oh my goodness time sure does fly!
