dear blank

dear (fill name in here),
        so our whole "friendship" you have been using me.  I mean the WHOLE time.  I kinda ignored it at first  but then it became more obvious.  i had actually thought we could be real friends.  i dont really have many of them and not any that live close.  but please dont call me anymore.  i am physically and emotionally tired of doing things for you.  if you call already know that i am unavailable.  it is a fact that people use me.  it has always been like for me growing up.  only getting called or invited out when someone needed something.  i am done being that person.  now i am not going to say what happened today, or who with but if you feel guilty twords someone maybe you should include them a little more.  maybe even apoligize.  you probably weren't doing it intintionally, but it hurts them.  i know.

sleep and lack of

chris colemans groom cake.

i wanna talk about sleep.  So sophia has always woken up in the middle of the night crying.  i can usually turn off the monitor and ignore it till about 5:30 when i crawl out of bed and start the day.  last night was the worse night EVER!!!  not only was she awake for an hour she wasn't crying.  she was BLOODY MURDER SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!!!  i am not joking or exaggerating,  we're trying to get her to the point where the girls could sleep together but it just doesn't look like that's going to happen.  it's only 7 in the morning and shes already tired.  i am tired and maybe not as patient as i should be.  i need to go and get some cakes in the oven.  any suggestions on keeping her asleep at night?

the cupcake tree for the ward christmas party.  the picture above that is brooklyn fitting into sophias dress!!!!!  So this past week was a really good week.  Sissy has been feeling much much better.  We went back to the dr on monday.  her test results was it was an epidermal inclusion cyst.  non cancerous!!  we shouldnt even have to go back to see the dr!  I am no longer sick and brooklyns allergies are all under control.  So we're all doing good. 
The flea market weekends are over.  I did a little less then alright.  The weather was just awful.  Freezing one weekend and raining the next.  This weekend I am doing chris colemans grooms cake.  Next weekend is christmas and a possiable 80's themed 40th birthday cake.  Then I get to rest some and not stress so much.  This year for us has been EXTREMELY stressful for me.  which sucks because when i am stressed even if i am eating right i dont loose weight.  thats why i only lost five lbs this year and not my goal twenty.  five is better than nothing though.

Brooklyn just told me she wants her own sewing machine and a her size cricut for christmas.


that is where the incision is.  I dont know if it is because whatever that thing was, was causing her discomfort but she had been ALOT less grumpy this week.  I mean like NO extra crying at all.  Ill post monday what it turned out to be.

the doctor

So about a week before sophias birthday in september i felt a bump on her face.  when we went to the dr in october he said it was an infected lymph noid, gave her some antibiotics.  nothing changed.  i still wasnt freaked out.  when we went back to the doctor in november he still says it is an infected lymph noid and gave her some thing else.  nothing happened.  so here it is december and today we are going to an ENT specialist at 10:40.  i was still not freaked out or anything, until last night.  we were hanging out with the londons and rachel starts saying she has never seen anything like that (shes a something nurse), blah, blah, blah.  so she is coming with me to the dr to help remember/translate what he is saying it is.  so last night i didnt sleep and today i have a headache already and are extremely ready for the appointment.  oh yeah this week i have been doing research about infected lymph noids.  this is what i came up with.  they happen when you are sick (not sophias case)  they are not right there on the side of your face, and even without meds the go away by themselves within two to three weeks (we're like on week 12 or 13 and she was on meds).  poor baby.

I'm so awsome it tires me out!!!

I dont want to jinx myself but I am awesome when it comes to time management.  I have everything done for the ward christmas party in two weeks (except cupcakes but we all want those to be fresh right?)  I have just written out the reciepies for the relief society christmas party and will be making everything thursday and friday.  But what is so awesome is I am done with everything for the flea market including the ordiments i can do until the vinyle comes in.  So maybe not awsome but some killer time management skills.  So while Trent naps, Brooklyn and Sophia play I am going to cut out the cutest jumper for a friends baby.  oh yeah my house is also clean and decorated for christmas.  I know i ooze with coolness, people are lining the streets to be my friend.  take a number people, take a number.

YESTERDAY WE GOT THE CANON REBEL T1i 15 MEGAPIXEL SLR!!!!!!!!!!!! We did not leave the house at the butt crack of dawn. We left when everybody was awake and cleaned up. Best buy had one left and it became ours, mainly thanks to Trent. He did all the research on them and figured out which one was the best and convinced me of it. Our girls do not do pictures studios and it has always made me very very sad to not have m walls plastered with my girls perfect smiling faces. Now that dream can happen at home! Along with the camera we got a 300$ extra lens and a bag for it all FOR FREE (again thanks to trent)!!!!!! I am still in heaven. I cant wait till tommorow and the girls are all cute in their church dresses and I can snap some pics while we wait for Trent to get ready (he showers last). Enjoy the pics from our new camera, the thanksgiving ones are from our old one.

Now I know I never finished the thankfulness days so here are some more in no particular order,

I am thankful we waited for so long to get the mirrior for our living room. today we found on we like SO much better for ALOT cheaper.
I am very thankful for Trent and all the hard work he does for his family. I love when he comes home from work and the girls are so excited to see him.
I am thankful for january when we will have morning church again.
i am thankful the flea market is this coming weekend. i am ready for round one.
i am thankful for my family and friends and all the support they give me in everything.

20. i am thankful for trial and error
i just liberated sophia from her oppressive prision we call a baby bed. i did i made it a toddler bed. i know ya'll are sayiing is she crazy, well yes i am. Sophia likes to wake up early and play. i am hoping if she can get out of bed and get her own toys i can sleep till at least 6:30. we'll try it and see how it goes till sunday. if we have success we'll keep it. if it just does not work we'll put it back into crib form. wish me luck nap time is in 2 hours.

another one bites the dust

starting young. brooklyn loves to excersize with us. she can doo most of the excersizes trent and i can do!

the girls christmas dresses
before chruch, sophia is ready to go. brooklyn didnt want to wear her shoes.

getting bigger

i waited a little to long to put her down for a morning nap.

So it seems a few times a week I am putting away a super cute outfit that brooklyn wore this time of year but it just doesnt seem to fit sophia. shes not an overly big baby. shes just long waisted and has HUGE thighs. alot of her shirts are to short. like an inch or more. and her pants are like tights. some pairs dont even go over her thighs!!!!!!!

i am thankful i can sew.
i am thankful walmart and target have cheap, but cute, clothes that i can buy for sophia when i find out ANOTHER outfit is to small.
i am thankful for nice "outside and play" weather.

thankfulness number 11

11. I am thankful Brooklyn can entertain herself.

While Sophia is sleeping and I folded laundry Brooklyn was playing in the kitchen. I came to check her out. She had set up a tea party for her and all of her friends. Every bowl has "food" and a fork. The cups all have water and a grape. I think the grape is supposed to be like a lemon. Shes having a blast so I think I'll just let her be.

the bandwagon

So I thought I would jump on the 27 days of thankfulness posting bandwagon. Since my most faithful readers are my dad and Jessie I know they won't mind ALL the catching up I am going to do over the next few days.... so here it goes.
1. I am thankful for all the things everyone did while trent was out of work. Some people helped with, food or bills or even just hanging out and sharing some laughs. thank you for all your help.
2. I am thankful our dishwasher didn't catch fire.
3. I am thankful for new friends and old.
4. I am thankful we have a nice house to live in.
5. I am thankful for pacifiers.
6. I am thankful we can change anything about ourselves if we just put our minds to it.
7. I am thankful for somewhat educational cartoons that will keep my kids entertained on occasion.
8. I am thankful for a mom and sister that taught me how to be crafty and make things. Sewing and cakes and babysitting are what we lived off of while trent was unemployed. Now i will use this skill to try and make money at the flea market.
9. I am thankful trent is working, boy was i stressed.
10. I am thankful my sis is my best friend.

So that catches me up half-way. I'll catch up more tomorrow!

today we went to the park. Go to dropshots to see all the pics, and the videos. The one of the car wash is pretty funny.

trent will be in arkansas from sunnday to friday with work. i guess a visit to my mommas is coming up.


Dear Sophia,
I love you, I really do. Do you really have to wake up SCREAMING at FOUR A.M.!!!!! There is nothing wrong with you take a bottle and go back to sleep. But you decide to stay awake and scream some more, even with me in there. Next time I will turn off the monitor and ignore you till 6. That is an acceptable time to wake up. Now it is 7:30 and you are cranky. Next time sleep in, especially sine the night before Brooklyn was up in the middle of the night. I am tired you better be good today is all I have to say.
love, Momma
