Bloody Pictures!!!!!!!

One little monkey jumping 'cross the couch,

hit a side table and got a big ouch,

ran him to the doctor and the doctor said,

let's put some stiches into his head.

That is not the end of our story it is sad, but true! Just a few days later he showed us once again that he is a boy through and through.
I took the kids with me to visit with a friend,
he jumped off a bed and with his lip caught the window pane's end,
At first it looked as though he only scratched the skin,
But we soon could tell that all the blood just stayed in,
His upper lip got Huge so there was no doubt,
it looked as though he was wearing a pout.

Okay, but seriously, this was a bit traumatic for me. I run him to the doctor screaming, shirt soaked.... my camera was in the car- so I took two pictures (I was a little more calm since the bleeding wasn't just pouring down his head anymore) I balled the whole time they were injecting the wound; then my inner voice said "Girl, you better pull yourself together!!" So then I got myself calmed down while I held Malachi down for the doctor to put in the Seven stitches. We got home and I kid you not, an hour later and he was all goofy and jumping around again- KIDS!!!! Then when he hit his lip, it got so big- he looked like a cartoon drawing (you know how with the side view of the simpson's their upper lip totally hangs over the bottom). I tried to get a picture but my camera wouldn't focus. My poor sweet little boy!!! He handled the whole thing probably a lot better than I did. I am really hoping for a vacation from stitches, bumps and bruises!!

This morning I got up at @ 7 and checked the blog to see if they had announced the winner yet- nope; but I did see that these awesome (and crazy) ladies had been posting ALL NIGHT LONG, so I wished them luck and went to clean my house. I came back to check and saw my own name on the screen!! yEs YeS YEs yES yEs YES!!! So this is what I won (did I mention there were over three thousand posts- ladies trying to win this?!?! man am I ever LUCKY!!)

Memory game

One of my friends posted this on her blog and I thought it was a fun idea!!Here's how to play:
Memory Game:
1. Add a comment to my blog by leaving a memory that you and I experienced together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little, or A LOT. All you have to do, is simply, remember.
2. When you've done that, post this to your blog, experience the memories from your lifetime, and I'll return the favor

Totally Spoiled!!

Okay, so I have the best sisters EVER, weather they were born my sisters or married in- they are super great, they totally spoiled me for my birthday!! I know this may be a wierd thing to put on here- but hey, since I should be packing boxes I am not allowing myself to scrapbook right now and I had to find some way to celebrate the cool stuff they gave me. First Cherry got me a sewing machine (ya, trust me, I know)

Then Alicia got me this entirely adorable set from Basic Grey's Sugared collection- I am competely in love with these chipboard stickers!!

Seriously, how lucky am I?

And then last weekend I watched the kids (mine and Cherry's 2 older girls) while most of the rest of my family went to the wedding. Ya, I kinda spent awhile Monday feeling sorry for myself- but then Cherry and Ty (you've got to love a sister who will whisper good ideas into your husband's ear) brought me home one of these(from Alicia's store)- now it wasn't this one; I couldn't get the right picture to come up on the computer; but close enough- just different colors, and I think mine is cooler, but you get the idea-

yep! I'm spoiled!

My Beautiful Candra

Last week it was picutres of Brittney, This week- Candra. Whenever I pull out the camera to take pictures of anyone Candra is there saying "Can you take a picture of me?" Then she loves to look at them. She also loves to take pictures- she is always asking if she can take pictures with my phone (I guess she knows that is the only one she can get away with) and she takes a ton, I usually always have to tell her "that's enough," pretty fun to share what I love to do with my daughters, pictures, pictures, pictures, scrap, scrap, scrap... Candra is my little blinker, I only took about six pictures of her and she was blinking in half of them- and I don't think I even had the flash on.
