I'm trying to do better

I'm so sorry for being so slack with my blogging and reading up on everyone else. It has been so chaotic lately. We are just non stop! So here is what we have been up to over the past few days...
Friday we had supper with mom, Paul and Kelley and were all tuckered out pretty early...Davis and I had to rest up for our busy day Sat.
We woke up bright and early (not to this mama's liking) b/c D thought it was party time at 6:30 am. I told you it was bright and early. But that's ok it's hard to be frustrated when you have such a happy baby. We ran around like crazies trying to get the house together, fed, washed and ready by 11 (or should I say I did while dancing and singing trying to entertain boogie, while he looked at me like I was smoking crack, but laughed it off) for our big photo session with my friend Heather.
We then picked up Turner and Cole and off to some different spots for beautiful pictures. Let's just say it would be an understatement to say that she had her hands full. To get all three to look at the camera and smile...phew what a task. I'm sure I was looked at like a crazy person once again by all the passerbyers. After finishing up pictures we just hung out at mom and dad' in everyone in my immediate family, brothers and their families, including Grandma (or known as Great Grandma these days with all the little ones). It was nice to have everyone together just hanging out with no agenda. Turner and Cole played a game of how many cars can we wash and actually get the water on the cars and not us. (You can only imagine how this one ended.) We ate a yummy supper then went on our ways. Our way (well Davis and I) was to the bed, counting sheep, b/c we were exhausted to say the least.
Cole playing with Duke and LillySo sleepy but scared he would miss something.Swinging in the hammock with two sweet boys...
Sunday it started all over with church, lunch, naps and coupon organizing. I'm so close to having my system down it isn't funny. I have "upgraded" my couponing to a 3 ring binder b/c I'm just too much for the zip lock bags these days. HA
Today I got all of this plus a case of water for less than $14.00!!!
Then, I went to our only grocery in town (Piggly Wiggly) and spent over $16 on six items, WITH coupons!!! Tell me how this makes sense.
Last night, D slept NONE, or maybe more like 4 hours, which felt like none. I think the pollen has just gotten the best of him and he is not having it. Of course, mom has been texting all day saying how good/sweet he is, while I've been holding my eyelids open with toothpicks.
Lastly, our sweet niece, Jordan, got her permit today!!! She was just 7 when BJ and I first started dating. Time flies I tell ya!! When I asked hubs if this made him feel old he said mo, I won't feel old til I'm in my 60s. Nice to know BJ, nice to know.
So, that just about sums it up. Hopefully I'll be better this week my friends. Hopefully.

  1. You are always so busy, yet you make it seem so easy! When I had a little one D's age, I stayed at home as much as possible, terrified of what to do with him in public! You are doing so well with him. He is such a looker! AND I am mad that I do not coupon like you and need to follow your lead, at once!
