What a crazy week…

I hate to say that it is Wednesday and that I feel like my week has been a total loss so far, but when you hear the news I have this week, it is not surprising.

We really have a teen suicide issue in this country.  We have a significant problem with pressuring our children and making them feel less than loved, supported, or even appreciated when we push them too much.  A scholarship loss is NOT ever a reason to harm yourself.  There is so much more to live for in life than money.  Are our children not aware that it is final?  Or is it too late after making that impetuous decision to pull the trigger?  It is never too late (or too early!) to talk to your children about suicide.

I won’t drag this post on and depress you all the way I have been this week.  Please.  Hug your children.  Tell them that no matter WHAT they do in life (good or bad… and yes… even REALLY bad) you will love them to the moon and back.  You are ALWAYS their mother or father.  Teach their siblings to love and support each other.

Peace, love and laughter,

Amy

Typical Day…

October 11th, 2016

So I try to spend the day studying yesterday, but of course I had one child home and she had a friend over to play video games… and this means I can’t study! So instead, I decided to make some chicken soup.

I fill my small crockpot about three quarters of the way with water and added some chicken flavor cubes with two frozen chicken breasts.

I let that cook on low overnight and then removed the excess fat off of the top of the water, and added my vegetables, some cumin, a bay leaf, some pepper, and some more water.

I let that cook on high for 3-4 hours and then added the noodles in the last 20-30 minutes.
It turned out delish and I can’t wait for lunch today. Nom

Okay little *K* is such a cute little peanut and was such a Thanksgiving blessing!   Mommy and daddy were completely into my bizzarre sense of creativity when it came to their sweet baby girl.  I hope Noni loves these images because Noni loves her little grandbaby!  This sweet girl slept through most of the session and I was soooo proud of her for not peeing on me once, but on daddy twice!  😉  Sorry matt!

The Holidays have been kicking my bootey and we are still trying to get caught up on all the sessions before the big fat Christmas Deadline!  Duuuh  duuhhh duh duuuuuuuuh!  Eeeks!  If you have any last minute requests, NOW is the time to do it! 

These are the sessions that make me think that having a baby might be a little fun!  😉

I LOVE this shot!  Some babies do not stay completely curled up and this little sweetie took the opportunity to stretch her leg out right when I was trying to take a photo of her little toes!  It was so funny… she just popped her little foot out and almost kicked my lens!  She didn’t stay that way for long so I am so thankful I got the shot!img_8103

Little H and R are so cute!  When H’s mommy called and asked if she could bring the cousin I said heck ya!  haha!  This little sweetie is just cute!  You can tell they are related.  Unfortunately, Mister H liked to pull his cousin’s hair and I don’t think it was well received.  Hahah!    I am so thankful for little boys and their personality differences!!!!!  I am not sure moms knew that we would have as much wild and crazy fun as we did, but boy was it a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  🙂

Already Missing the Excitement of Black Friday Shopping? {{wahooo!}}

I know you get a lot of emails during the week and especially Black Friday!  Matt and I were troopers and spent the night shopping as a date!  Dennys at 4am is NOT good for my stomach!  HA!   We visited a few places that were fabulous.  NOT that I want to to be too crazy next year but SAM’s club serves breakfast and juice to their clients that come in at 5am and CVS is the best place to get items at a low cost without the crowds.  We went to Walmart at 12:15am and there were people in line for the 5am opening of the big ticket items.  But Walmart had it completely under control and it was well maintained.  Target had a line all the way past Hobby Lobby JUST to get in the door but the humdinger HAD to be Kohls or Toys R Us.  Both had lines wrapping around the entire store and people at the front checking out said they waited in line for over 2 hours JUST to purchase a couple toys for 70% off.   Personally I think it is a little nuts, but if you have the right outlook on the night and have the patience, then you are set.   I know that some families do this as a tradition every year and they have a blast.

I might entice Matt to go again next year if we have a sitter that does not mind camping out on our couch!  🙂  Today we are at the Festival Of Lights in Ahwatukee Foothills and here are the POST Black Friday sales we are offering there today in our booth!  If you can’t make it down, give us a call!  We can get you set up!

These sweet peas are 7 months old now but you would NEVER know they were born before their due date.  They are just stinking adorable and love to laugh at their mommy that gets a workout every time she is here!

One Triplet looks just like her daddy and one looks just like her mommy and the other one is a perfect blend of BOTH of them!  It is AWESOME!  Mom is just so beautiful and the girls all have her beauty already.  They are growing so fast!

I am sad that this was the last session in this little sweetie’s plan!  But I am hoping they will come back for some family portraits soon!  I adore these little girls and their big brother!  He is such a cutie and I love how sweet their family is!  I wish I had more to share but right now these two are all I got!

Can you just imagine what little girls are made of by just looking at that silly face?  bwahahaha!
