Weekly Photo Challenge - "Night time"

Finally our challenges are back on again!

This one was not really difficult, just trying to find the time, and something to photograph was tough. It was either late, and I was tired, or I forgot to take my camera when I was out at night...

But I finally managed to get a is a really cool night light I bought my son for his new room, it changes 7 different colors.
Here is Mindy's photo, it is of the pools at the Red Rock Casino in Vegas.
And we have another photographer joining our weekly challenges! Grace is a professional photographer based out of St. George, UT. She captured this beautiful photograph of the St. George LDS temple last week.

Our challenge for this week is:

Farewell To Nausea...I hope...

Well, I finally hit my 4th month, and so far this week no throwing up yet...I hope that is a good sign it is all going to be over with! It usually only lasted till I was 4 months, so I can only keep my fingers crossed it is done.

This has to be the worse one yet...I have never thrown up so much...LOL...For your sake and mine, I won't get into details!

Weekly Photo Challenge...Delayed a week...

So Mindy and I both agreed we should extend this week's photo challenge for at least another week, if not more! Neither one of us had taken any pictures for it yet. I know, I know... slackin' :)We are both SO busy right now, and the funny thing is that we're both overwhelmed for the same reason. I just moved into my brand new house this weekend, and Mindy will be moving into her new home in the next few days... if all goes well! We're both super excited, but definitely have WAY too much to do at the moment :)

The Big Weekend is official...we are moving this weekend! YEAH! We are so excited...the wait if finally over! We still have a few odds and ends that need to be done inside the house, but nothing to keep us away! I will post some pictures of the move for sure.

We had the final inspection today, and it tomorrow the power is getting connected! Once the electrician and the AC man come and check everything, we are good to go!

Now the real hard work begins...wish us luck!

Aiden in Chocolate Heaven!

Aiden was rummaging through the pantry looking for something to eat. He noticed a chocolate pudding box, and wanted me to make it for him.

He loves to help me in the kitchen, which I don't mind, I love to cook myself!

I think he likes it, cause he gets to lick everything after I am done...

Here he is enjoying his bowl of pudding!

OOPS...Kind of got a little too much in his mouth...He started laughing, so was I!

Oh, look...he got some on his fingers...

There that is better! Just stick the whole hand in your mouth!

The Ultimate Mom Test!

Take this test!
Recipe for: The All-Natural Mom
Quote: "Yes, it's fruit for dessert again!"

A big dose of care (with a dash of concern)
Plenty of fiber
Green, leafy veggies (either encouraged or enforced)
Wholesomeness sprinkled throughout
Add if desired: tofu

Mix all ingredients with fresh air, sunshine, and a sense of humor. Serve with love.

Whether you're just trying to make sure something green (Gatorade doesn't count) passes your kids' lips once in awhile, or whether you're calculating your family's intake of antioxidants, you're a woman with health on your mind. Which is why we might find you outdoors playing tag with your kids before dinner (with plenty of sunscreen on everyone), or reminding the kids at bedtime that they only have to floss the teeth they want to keep.

You have a lot more on your busy mind than just fats, carbs and proteins—you know that food is more than what keeps tummies from rumbling. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and so do your healthy choices. The good habits you teach can last a lifetime. So what if the raisin snacks and low-fat dinner recipes don't always make you the most popular member of the household. You've got your mind set on a higher goal.

Your style is full of energy and ingenuity. Which is why you can leap over junk food and lethargy in a single bound, and juggle all of your responsibilities in- and outside of the home.

Tip: Don't forget to indulge every once and awhile! Nutrition is important, but that occasional gooey treat won't ruin your healthy lifestyle. It'll just make it more fun!

Kung Fu Panda Crazy-ness

As my daughter calls it..."Kala-few Panda"
It is the newest dang funniest little show ever! We took the kids on Sunday to watch it, so funny! Some parts were kind of scary for my little ones, but they were very entertained...LOL!

House promised

Here are some pictures of the house I took this morning...We are just about done, our final plumbing inspection passed, and now we are just waiting for the AC man to put the units in, and the Electrician to hook up our water heater, then we think that should be good for our Electrical inspection. Then we just need to get a final building inspection, and we are good to move in! We are hoping by next week we will be moving! YEAH! Finally...we are so excited!

Here are a few grab shots...

My time to Vent...

I feel like a single parent with two kids, and then dealing with morning not fun! On the top of that, I am trying to keep my house clean...well clean enough to walk around. HA...I have been a slacker these last few weeks. I finally started packing today, now I have boxes stacked up, cause we really have no where to put them.

Plus dealing with the final stuff with the house on my own. It is just about done, we will hopefully be moving in it in a couple of weeks. We are getting our final plumbing and electrical inspections tomorrow! Then we will get the power connected sometime next week, and then the AC man will come after that! I can't wait! We are so close, I just hope we can get in soon!

To top it all off, I am sick, and I have a sore throat, and there is nothing really I can take. Amiah keeps breaking out in Hives, I am still trying to find out what is causing that. Aiden is just being a little turd lately...I think he just misses his dad...we all do! I hate his new job sucks, he is gone all week long.

Weekly Photo Challenge - "At Your Feet"

Here's my "At your feet" picture. I had my kids help me on this one! I had them bring me the most colorful rocks they could find in their grandpa's driveway...LOL! They were awesome helpers!
