Waylon keeps crossing his arms lately. Today I asked him why and he said "because Obi Nobi do it!" He loves Clone Wars and apparently Obi Won always crosses his arms. At least he moved on from the bad guys to a goo one! Funny kid!
So it's been a long time! I can't believe my last update was before Christmas. Time flies with three kids!! So where do I start?
Lexzi has just finished her basketball cheerleading season. The Gwinn Boys Varsity team are district champs and regional runner-ups. She had a lot of fun and kept us running! I was sad to have the team lose but at the same time happy, OKecstatic, to not have to drive as much. Next on the horizon...drumroll...her 16th birthday! I cannot believe that this is possible. While I wish I could shrink her back down to the cute, cuddly, my mommy knows everything stage, she is a wonderful christian girl with a good head on her shoulders! We are SO proud of her!
Waylon is obsessed with Star Wars! He plays with light sabers constantly and has begun shooting lightning out of his hands when he is pretending to be the bad guy. Cute the first couple times...not so cute when he has just gotten a time out and thinks that is going to make me go away. He is loving the spring weather and has been running off that energy outside a lot! He has turned into an awesome little helper!
Sammi is getting so big. She is walking and talking. So far she has said "Mama, Dada, book, bath, thanks, & bye." It's amazing how much faster she is doing things than Waylon. Gotta keep up with her crazy brother! Hard to believe she will be 1 at the end of May! She is just too much fun!
Travis has gotten of straight nights shift finally! It's so nice to have him up & around during the day. Third shift is awful for family life. I am so thankful that is behind us! I am working a few days a week doing massage therapy and billing still. I love my work and the people I work with...you can't beat working with like-minded Christian women! I have also made up my mind to lose this baby fat. I have started this program "Couch to 5K". I have never really liked running but am determined to force myself to like it. So far so good! I really am enjoying my me time, sore muscles and all! I have been looking for some good upbeat Christian music to add to my running playlist, so if anyone has any suggestions...
So that's the last few months in a nutshell. I promise I'll update this more. I'm embarrassed the last time was in early December. What can I say...that's the silly lives of the Sales! :)
Where to begin...today has been one of those days...it seemed like I went from one mess to another ALL day long! Waylon has hit his terrible two's with a vengeance! He went from hitting the tv with his light saber while watching Clone Wars, which by the way he told me it was OK because he was just "fighting bad guys", to having Sammi in the shower in the armpit hold because she decided to make her own "mess" from her ankles to her shoulders. Yuck! So while I was cleaning up my adorable yet smelly baby I could hear my terrible two year old in the living room arguing with his oldest sister. I wrapped Sammi in a towel and headed into the other room to take care of yet another mess. I separated Waylon and Lexzi and started to take Waylon into his room for a timeout while explaining what he had done wrong. In the middle of the trip he interrupts me and says "Mommy what's that?" pointing to my nose. I was thinking he was trying to distract me from his punishment told him it wasn't funny! To which he said "Mommy what's that?" This time I thought I better check things out and discovered I had poop on my nose! At the same time Sammi started to get agitated because she was still wrapped in a towel in my arms. So what did I do get her dressed and then wipe the poop off my nose...such is the life of a mom!
This weekend has been a pretty busy one...than again when is a weekend with three kids not right?! I hosted my first home sale-type party this past Saturday. This seriously makes me feel old...not sure why but it totally does! Anyway, the party was for Arbonne, a awesome face/body care line. It was a lot of fun. We soaked our feet in little foot baths, scrubbed with some wonderful smelling stuff, & finished off with some yummy lotions. Sammi and my friends little girl, Sonja, soaked their little tootsies as well! Sammi loved it! I seriously cannot remember the last time I sat in my living room with some girlfriends doing something that wasn't remotely child related. I have to admit it was kinda nice. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE my kids but every once in awhile some girl time is definitely needed! And I was in some definite need! So thank you Leela & Arbonne for a fun-filled evening!
Now as most of you know today is the opening day of deer season. Our little neck of the woods has changed from the quiet country we love to a busy noisy deer camp heaven or hell depending on how you look at it I suppose! On the way home from church Lex counted 10 cars at the tiny deer camp across the road from us! This time of year is not my favorite only due to the amount of people out here but I will admit I do love the venison so I'm not complaining! My father-in-law, Pop pop as Waylon calls him, will be here tomorrow to hunt with Travis this week. We can't wait to see him! Hopefully they both get a deer. Not only will it fill our freezer but in our house a buck = a very happy husband! Happy hunting!
One word...Mastitis. It's AWFUL!!! The past two days have been the worst. I feel like I have the worst flu ever. And to make matters worse you have to nurse through it to get rid of it! :( I have had it before with Waylon but there's something about it where you don't remember exactly what it's like until your in the middle of it again! (kinda like labor eh?) So I'm making this short & sweet...please pray for me. Feeling like this and chasing around 3 kids is not my idea of fun...more like a nightmare. I really hope I wake up soon! I promise my next post will be much happier!
So this week has been a blur...between work and the kids stuff I have been so busy! Thursday night after training at work (with both little kids), picking up Lex from her last cheer football game at 10:30pm & getting the kids in bed, I finally got to work on some sewing I needed to get done. So at around 11:30 I made a tutu and a few wool felt flower barrettes and a headband. Friday, we had a grand opening at my work, Wautier Wellness. Same place I've been working but my friend Stephanie who's also the chiropractor that's been working there bought the practice. I'm so happy & excited for her! Sammi came with me and was all decked out in her teal & black tutu (Wautier Wellness colors) and her headband with a teal flower on it. She got rave reviews! :) The grand opening went well and I was pretty busy with chair massages. Saturday was busy as well. Travis started to fell yucky the night before and was even worse by morning. We had plans to take the kids to the pumpkin patch so I ended up taking them by myself. Waylon loved picking out a pumpkin! He really surprised me by picking out a smaller one he could carry by himself. He said all the others were "too heavy Mommy!" He held that goofy pumpkin in his lap the entire way home and had to bring it inside too! When I woke up this morning there it was by his little sleeping head! So today we will be carving pumpkins and I have more sewing to do for costumes...more coffee please!
Hi! :) I'm Adrienne and this blog is about our family. I have been married to my awesome husband, Travis, since 2004 and we have 3 children...a teenager, a toddler & a baby. Alexzandra, Waylon & Samantha aka Sammi Lambi (as Waylon calls her). Life can get pretty silly with that combination but we are loving every minute of it...ok almost every minute! :)
