Me and the Kids

I love my boys!
They may be wild at times and some what hard to control. But somehow even with all these exasperating times... I still can't help but love them! They are good kids. Kids just having fun!

(such a funny look on his face here..lol And that nose.. always a scar.- Hey, he's a boy! A rough tumbling boy)
We learn so much from each other.
I love my boys!

Update on my little Artist's work!

William will be 5 in just a couple of weeks. :-)

Annual Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

I went with Willliam on his class field trip to Sutherland Farms. Those of you who were reading my blog last year, probably remember a similar post. Last year Richard came along, he was sick this year unfortunately. So it was just me and Will.. Which had its benefits though. I was able to be much more of a help to his class. Since I didn't have a two year old to round up every little while. lol -
If any of you that live around here with kids haven't been, you need to go! The kids love it! And well their is some very tasty products to purchase! I got me some Pumpkin Patch Salsa, and Nate some yummy pancake syrup!
In the above picture we are trying to find are way out of the corn maze.
William really is a neat kid. When they were told to go pick out a Pumpkin to keep. William looked around and ran to the pumpkin that was different then all the rest.. it was yellow, well kinda gray, and a funny shape. It was rotten, (lol) he didn't know that though.. he just saw it was special! It wasn't like any of the rest. lol- I let him keep it, but later that night made sure it was disposed of.
Thank-goodness, I think he forgot what his pumpkin looked like. Because I had gotten another one that same day.. A ripe one!, that he painted a face on, helped me carve out and we baked for dinner the next day! And boy was that one yummy meal!
William and his "Special" Pumpkin.

Squashed together on the Hay Ride.

Fun Train ride for the kids. Will is in the front cart.

This is really cool! They have a playground.. and instead of dirt, rocks, wood chips, or that black rubbery stuff.. that's always around the toys..... Its real Corn!

He's so cute! And I know I am his mom and all.. but really he's a cutie!

Pronunciation: \-ˌrē-ə-ˈlis-tik also -ˌ-\
Function: adjective
Date: 1925
1 : of or relating to surrealism
2 : having a strange dreamlike atmosphere or quality like that of a surrealist painting
sur·re·al·is·ti·cal·ly \-ti-k(ə-)\ adverb

I wanted to give everyone a brief update on my life, And well this one word "surrealistic" pretty much sums up the past few weeks for me. I could just leave you with this one word. ;) But for those who will not be satisfied with one word and well, just so I can continue to jot down my life a bit.. I'm not going to. -Leave you with one word that is. Nope.. because well I have many words to describe what I meant by this one word; Surrealistic.

To start it off. I get to take ALLERGY SHOTS now.. TWO, TWICE a WEEK for the next THREE to FIVE YEARS!
For a long time now I have always said that I am Allergic to New Mexico. Well Guess what? I AM! LOL! And I have the paperwork to prove it! Went to an Allergist specialist in Albuquerque. Where they pricked me more then 70 times.. Then I got stabbed with the stinkin needles 10 times then got really stabbed when they drew my blood. ;) And well the results came back!
The doctor walked in and said.. "Well basically you are allergic to the dirt and everything that grows in it!" LOL! Yeah, just stick me in the bubble! :) -No animals or Food came up though.. But I still think I am slightly allergic to grapes.. I mean they make my tongue itch! And well Cats didn't come up ither.. but I know I am allergic to them. Every time I am near one my eyes start to feel itchy and puffy, and my nose all runny.
Anyhow though, these shots are suppose to basically immune me of the sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, rashes I get when exposed to well.. Dirt, Trees, Weeds, Flowers, and Grasses. And I mean they had better work.. That's like over 800 Shots!

(Princess House ware)
As most of you should know, I am a Princess House Lifestlye Consultant, on the side. Just to earn a tad bit extra cash.
Since this summer we have needed it to be a bit more than just a tad bit. -With setting up our new home and all the extras that comes with that. -We needed some more dough! $$
So I decided to try and spread the word with a booth at the San Jaun County Fair. -Kinda jump start the biz a bit! :)

(my booth)
Had a blast, made new friends and was a great break from the daily routines of being a Full time Homemaker. The hours were a bit long though, but met so many people and got hundreds of numbers to contact. :)
So I thought "All-right! This is gonna work!"- Huh, think again.
It just wasn't enough to get a full time biz going.. with a steady income!- Which well, is what we need now. So I walked around all sad for a few days debating what to do.. I so did not want to join the work force.. and leave my babies at home! But we needed the steady cash. Finally I was forced to make up my mind. I had no choice really.. I had to Get a job!
But where do I start? I haven't had a job in like 8 years! I don't have any college... and I don't want to work at McDonald's.. and with the economy.. How in the world was I to find a job. And what about my kids??!! What was I going to do with my Boys, while I was at work?!! aAAHHH!
So I decided to start trying at least to find a job I would like.. so What do I like? I have always loved photography. But well I have no real experience, but was like "what the heck" and I doubtingly called up Sears Portrait Studio (the first studio I thought I wouldn't mind working for), and they said they were hiring! Surprised I filled out an application.
Had an interview shortly after that and then shortly after that, started work! :) Yep I was hired! I had a job! WOW! In my opinion this is far more than luck! -I mean this is a dream job for me, I get to work doing something I have always been interested in. And I didn't need any experience. They are completely training me!

So I have been a Sears Photographer for two weeks now! Had one heck of a crazy start out. They left me alone because of family emergency's on my 4th day! -I mean I wasn't even really into my training. It was CRAZY and I had an evil customer and a melt down that night when I got home. But am doing great! I mean my manager just informed me that my numbers are better than hers and well I am getting a raise and taken out to dinner! - Now how about that! ;) Only two weeks on the job and already a raise -and taken out! Pretty darn good if I don't say so myself! ;)

As for my children luckily enough Nathan and my mom have been able to juggle them. I don't like this, because.. well, I miss them! But am glad my children are with their Dad and Grandma!

Okay now on to the next craziness. During the summer all us kids were informed that our Dad has Cancer and its a pretty progressive cancer. He has had two surgeries since, to remove as much as they could and right now is going through radiation treatments. So that's put a lot of worried stress on us.

And if all this isn't enough to explain my feelings of surrealism.- With $$ issues, dream jobs and health issues. There has just been so much family drama happenings. I won't get into all that though.

There is another highlight! Over the past few weeks I have been reunited with friends from my past!

Cherise is one!- Here is a page from my scrapbook- I was a sophomore I think. These are pictures from our trip to the Grand Canyon- lol- I never saw it though... I got sick and spent my time at the motel throwing up. Even with all that, I still had a blast though! It was always fun when Cherise was around!
Remember our Dance moves we made up? I still do! lol!!
And you ditching and coming to my classes.
Hey I found some of your drawings! Do you still Draw? Oh, and having tons of clothes to change into stuffed in our lockers. And those annoyingly fun bus rides!
So glad you came to pick up your Grandma! And that Amber helped us all get together! Thanks Amb!!!
:) *oh smiles*
And then there is Sara Young- not Young now though. :) Couldn't find any pics of us! I know I have one somewhere. -She was my Church buddy!!! So glad you came to Sears to get pics taken!! I look forward to getting together with you! I am so glad for Facebook! What a blessing it is.. and a waste of time.. But what a blessing it is! I mean it is so much fun and so easy now to contact all my buddies from forever! :)
Well there you have it! Why the word "Surrealistic" sums up my life right now!
Ya know, I thank God for all he does. He knows how much I can take and when to give me a pick me up! Just hope this dream phase gets a bit calmer. But hey until then the "We can do it!" girl will be my Motto.
Tschüß (bye)

William and Richard

This may not be the best picture of them, but I love it!

-I dono why!... I'm there MOM!

They are just sooo cute! They are always cute, even when they are naughty.. How do they do that??

Well I thought I would share with you all, what my two troublesome cuties have been up to at home this summer...

1st pic-Learning about fireworks! William having fun with Sparkler time!! Look at him go!

2nd pic- Being uh.. silly.. uh ... The two of them.. they love to do this.. Dump out all the toys, out of the big buckets, place them on their heads and then run around the house crashing into things... uh.. yeah. lol! Its hilarious.. but kinda annoying at the same time.. Did I mention.. they dumped out all the toys to do this! And they crash into things!

1st pic-Playing pretend (or learning deception). William.. lol - He's pretending to be asleep.. yeah I think I know where he learned this one. lol!

2nd pic-The usual daily whines- out of the drama king Richard!

1st pic- Learning how to dress oneself!.."I think ya got enough undies on their buddy!"

2nd pic- Keeping up the skills! Always drawing something! :) Williams Duck!- As if you didn't know what it was! :) That's our boy!
1st pic- Outside time.. Richard- King of the ugly dirt pile in our backyard! :) .. Hopefully once we get our skirting done around the trailer.. that can disappear.. as we level the yard all out!- Don't worry, he'll find something else to rule.. I'm sure of it!

2nd pic- William loving on the horse, Buddy! :)

These two happen almost daily!

Well there ya have it!

I love Music!- no, I Really LOVE MUSIC!

So, Huge Fan, Huge Fan!
Almost every moment in my life, I can hear a song playing in the background. I don't always no the name.. but I know how it goes! And I love it! I love to dance to it and sing to it (As long as no one notices that I am singing!). I love to just go with it. To cry with it and smile with it! Music can touch your soul in so many ways that words cannot!- I truly believe this!
What I am saying.. Is that my life has its own soundtrack.
What can I say, I am one of those people who finds it hard to clean with out the appropriate music blaring in the background!
It lifts me, it strengthens me, it touches me! I love Music! There are some types though or well songs, that I can not stand, usually the kind that brings the wrong feelings in me. Though sometimes I find a song that knows just how pissed I am! Haha! I love it.. I love the rhythm, the beat, I love it! - Have I said that enough? well let me say it again-I love Music! With or with out words! Its good! Whether its oldies or newbies! One playlist just isn't enough! And just for your info..Most of the songs on my personal playlists.. are part of my soundtrack. They know me.
I mean this is why movies have soundtracks- So much of what we want to portray.. we just can't find the words to do so. To let those know just how we feel.. but then when that melody starts- somehow.. we know how they felt. how we should feel at that moment.

So while in Durango to see Thomas we also got to walk through a car show.

Now I don't pretend to know much about cars. In fact I out right admit that I know very little. All though I cant help but notice when a cars got curves and a good paint job! And I think most people that know me, know that I love to drive. And don't mind driving fast. Yes I miss those long no limit stretches on the Autobahn!
Here's a few of the cars that my eyes spotted while there. For many different reasons. (now keep in mind, its hard to take pics and try to keep your eyes and hands on two very active little boys.)

Ferrari- There were several of these, of course! This is the only one I seemed to snag a picture of.

The Back To The Future Car- DeLorean! Fun fun!

I love these types of classic, HOT ROD cars! - Yeah I have no idea the name of this one.

Fun gangster cars or Cruella De Vil cars. - Yeah again, no idea the names of these.

Okay- now this was my absolute favorite there!-- I know right?. It's a truck! But its a Periwinkle Truck and I could soo see myself driving this. Especially in the small hick type town that I currently live in!! :)

Now on to other cars that make me sweat!- These weren't there- I snagged the pics off the Internet.

Bugatti Veyron


And my Favorite since I spotted one in a parking lot my 9th grade year- THE BMW Z's- My personal favorite the Z3.

I miss all the fun European cars!-like this one-

I wish they sold these here. There so cute!

Now that I have a family though- these sporty little two seaters don't do the job- My next dream car is something like this- A crossover between mini vans and SUV's. Right now I like the look and feel of the Pacifica-
