I never know what to put as the title, it's rare that I get on here and actually have something to talk about! haha! Usually it's just me being bored and siting down "talking" to myself so I end up spending more time trying to figure out what I should title this silly thing than I spend actually writing it. I know, I put WAY to much thought into something that should be so simple...

Anyways...I think this blog thing is so hard for me to do because I have so little to say. Actually there's lots of things i'd like to say but very little that i'm confidant enough to actually say. I have all kinds of opinions of things, I have all kinds of things i'd love to talk to people about but I hardly ever have the confidence to actually say those things. You wouldn't think that something as simple as sitting down and writing a journal-basically-would be so complicated and difficult but for me it is. I mean this is on the internet, anyone can read this-not that many do but plenty could and that always manages to make me second guess what I actually end up writing about.

I've always wanted to be the kind of writer that when you read it you feel like you're sitting in my living room and we're chatting while drinking a cup of fabulous coffee. I love opening a book and after the first page feeling like i've known the author for years, I don't know how people do that. I've actually always wanted to be a writer-goodness knows i've read enough books!!-but once again i've never had the confidence to actually write anything. I guess the whole confidence thing is something I should really work on.

Ok, so from now on i'm going to try to do just that, i'm going to work on being more confident in my writing. I'm going to sit down with a good cup of coffee and imagine that i'm having a girlfriend over to join me and we're having the best time chatting about nothing and everything. I'm going to write about whatever happens to be on my mind and not worry about the fact that anyone could read it, this is after all MY blog! :o)

But for now, the kids are awake, well Konner and Logyn are, so I guess I better go...but i'll be back very soon! After all, I love any excuse to enjoy a cup of coffee! ;o)

Daily craziness

It's so strange to me how the simple day to day can be so crazy around here. I remember telling Colby when we were talking about having another baby that I wanted a house full of chaos, I wanted the busy days of sports practice and dance class and all the many activities that kids get involved with. So far we haven't even reached those activities and yet we stay so busy.

Growing up I always thought my mom just came up with chores for us, I really didn't think there could actually be that much to keeping a house of 4 clean. I was wrong!!! :o) I have to say I can't wait till the kids are old enough to get a daily list of chores...does that make me a bad mom?! haha! They have their regular things they do like pick up their toys and clothes and take their dishes to the sink, things like that. But the day they can do laundry will be a good day!!! :o) There's so much to keeping a house running smoothly and i'm still learning what all it takes, we have way to many bumpy days around here.

Konner has started asking questions like crazy, since he started talking he's asked questions but now they're getting a little bit harder. He now wants to know what everything means, plus he loves to talk so if he doesn't have anything to say he'll come up with something! "Mommy, what does what mean?" "Mommy, why is the sun the sun?" "Mommy, what does because mean?" Those are the times I just have to tell him to stop talking and silence is a good thing! haha! He's such an awesome little boy though and i'm learning all the time how to mother a boy, it's SOOO different than mothering girls! In the last few months he's started not wanting to much affection from me, it's been awhile since i've been able to hug him very much but it's continuing to increase. The other day Lexi was still sleeping and Konner came and sat with me while we watched a movie, he actually let me snuggle him a little bit. Of course as soon as Lexi came in the room he had to get up, he couldn't let sister see him snuggling with mommy. I guess my little boy is growing up!

Lexi is my major drama queen! I told my sister a while back that I don't know where the kids get their dramatics from, I mean I wasn't that dramatic as a kid! Of course she reminded me that um..yes I was! haha! It's so funny to me how often the end of the world comes around here, at least that's what Lexi thinks. She's also my strong willed child, she's only 2 and already she tries to out last me when it's something she doesn't want to do. It's so funny to me that she thinks "no" will actually work! :o) I guess it's something she has to try out though, i'm just having to remind myself to train her will. Being a girl with a strong will can actually be a great thing ans long as her will gets shaped right. Thank goodness for our church, I wouldn't have a clue if it wasn't for our pastor's teaching us regularly how do train these kids!

Logyn is doing awesome, she's growing like a weed and wants to bad to be big like brother and sis. She just follows them around all the time now, of course by the time they've gone in 3 circles she's starting on her first one but she'll catch them soon enough! We're going to go up to Colby's work tomorrow and take some new pics of the kids, it's been forever since we've taken some good pictures of them and they're growing and changing so fast. I'm excited to get them done though! I'll have to post some of them as well as some of Lexi and Logyn at the same age, those girls look SO much alike it's crazy! It's a good thing we keep their pictures separate because I wouldn't be able to tell them apart otherwise!

Colby and I are still doing great, we just had our 5 year anniversary a couple weeks ago, we got to get away for the weekend without the kids which was awesome. I can't believe it's been 5 years already! It's feels like so much longer sometimes, of course a lot has happened in those 5 years! I never though when we got married that by our 5 year anniversary we'd have 3 kids, but I have to say it's been an awesome journey! I told him on our trip that i'm so anxious to see where well be in 5 years, I don't even have a clue honestly. We have some ideas of where we'd like to be but don't really know if we'll actually get there. Colby's starting to pursue his career in fashion photography a bit more which is pretty cool and kinda scary at the same time. If he does end up doing solely fashion photography we'll most likely have to move, I mean there's not a lot of opportunity for fashion work here. Of course we're not really close to that right now so I try to just let go and give all of that to God until the time comes. No need to worry about it right now...easier said than done though that's for sure.

Well it's almost time to get Colby for lunch so I better it's back to all that house work I was talking about! ;o)
