Ashley's GOLDEN birthday!!! 10 years!


I remember everyday i was pregnant with you...I found out about 5 weeks along...senior in high school...what a surprise! About 7-8 weeks along i was puking my guts out....feeling like i was going to die!!! I tried diff drugs but nothing seemed to work..boo! I remember the first time i felt you kick i was 14 weeks along a little flutter, i remember the feeling in my heart that you gave me....i just loved you! Dr Weary was your Doctor oh how i loved him...you were concieved in Arizona but i moved you to Colorado Springs..Gram and Pop wanted you close by! Daddy and I made a bet on what sex you were gonna be! I so knew you were a girl and he so was hoping for a boy! So we bet a months worth of back massages and at 18weeks and 3 days it was confirmed that you were a GIRL!!!! I think I screemed a lil loud as the nurse jumped! hehe Oh all the girly stuff i had in mind for you...I now look at pictures and the maternity clothes were a bit ugly ha ha but baby Gap and Gymboree were mine and Grams favorite shops for you! I was pretty much sick thru my whole pregancy and about 28 weeks along you were thinking you wanted to meet me! What????
Yep! You landed me in the hospital for a whole week! I was 80% effaced and 2 cm dialated! Say what?? SO yes we were a bit worried! The Doc gave me a sterroid shot for your lungs and i grew hair on my chest! ha jk. but somehow you decided to stay in....accually you decided that when my due date came on Dec 6th you werent ready....i was sopose to be on bed rest but that only lasted a couple weeks! Im a bit ADD ha! So the doc induced me !! well accually i kinda went into labor on the 9th but he submitted me and you were born on the 10th at 2:46pm after 3 hours of pushing! Thanks for that!! I never saw such a more beautiful baby!!! Myheart sank when i saw you! you were 8pounds 4ounces! i still dont know how you came out but you did! by the help of a vacume! you had double chins, theighs, and the cutest lil fat cheeks ever!!! you were pissed and surely let everyone know! Thank you for making my life so blessed by being you!!! your so smart and loveable and caring and you just love me to peices as i love every lil inch of you!!! Plz stop growing up!!! YOu will never know how much joy you have brought to my life Ashley Noelle! I love you!!!

Love Mommy!!!!

Holidays in the air....


Ash, Antonia and bradley


ASh and Cheri







Happy Holidays everyone...... Man i cant believe its been 2 months since i have posted recently....we been a bit busy....and i've been lazy sorry.. I can smell the Holiday air already and i love it..about half way done with Xmas shopping for the kids, as Chad and I and Dr Kevin Leman (my new favorite christian author) have decided that its no good for kids to get a lot of Christmas presents! Lots of gifts =spoiled bratty children...and we have enough adults around that grew up and are still that way..We are teaching our children to be appreciative of what they have...and learn to give to others less fortunate...because isn't that what Christmas is all about anyways?? A great book I'm reading is Having a better kid by Friday again by Dr Kevin Leman...No i don't have "Bad" kids i have great ones that always need tuning...every child does..they need to know their limits..and I'm loving the instructions that Leman gives....it works! Anyways...I hope everyone enjoys the Holiday season that families come together and kids are to be loved and cherished.....cookies to be made and songs to be sung....and snow to be played in ...Let it snow....I'm craving me some snow...(until i get there ha ha )...Here's a few of our holiday pictures for starters...

God has New Changes in me......

Ive been convicted and after drifting away from Church and all the good it brings. A friend has been bragging about how awesome her church is.....so i told my self i have Saturdays to sleep in God needs me to come to his house on Sunday and give a little back since he has blessed me in so many ways.....I grew up going to Church every sunday and i want that for my kids as well.....When i told the kids about my plan for trying a new church they gave me the look like are you serious! SO i told them were gonna have fun and its all about trying new things, and hey "you might just like it"......SO we tried Cornerstone of Chandler.....and the Kids Zone was awesome looking...Kids went to worship and i carried on into the main center.......the greeter sat me in the front row (maybe she new it was gonna be a great concert and ive always wanted front row seating ) ha ha.....The music was great! I love how you can get so involved in the music and feel the love of Jesus in the room....i thought to myself "it feels so good to be home" the message was great as well and for the first time i didnt get bored in church....I know this is the beginning of some New Changes in Me! Cuz i do need a lil help being:

  • More understanding to others
  • less judgemental =(
  • not getting upset when things dont go MY WAY ha
  • love more
  • pray more
  • know that not everythings gonnabe perfect
  • Talk more about how awesome Jesus is to others

I know Jesus has special plans for me, that its all a learning process and that its a fun ride in between.....Thank you Trudy for the invite! After church wheni picked up the kids from their classes i asked them how it was and they both said" Mom can we please come back next week! It was so fun!!! We even made friends" All I can say is GOD IS GOOD! The Pastor asked us "what is means to be a christian??? He said being a christian isnt about coming to church every sunday....being a christian means telling others about GOD! wow i love that!

LOve always~

Over the Hump.......

If you been reading my blog latly ya'll know that there has been a change in life stlye for the Towe-kelliher clan....

Starting with Chad's job......the first week was rough for me lil bit of tears flo'd and some anxiety from the boogie man ( i sware i only hear noses when chads gone at night), kids having to use quiet voices during the day now....(thats been tough), feeling like I never get to see my husband on the nights he works cuz
the whole next day he is sleeping and than once he wakes up hes gone again......
But.....things are adjusting well and its beginning to feel normal again...
kinda...

I do enjoy him being home at night with me now when hes off ....before he worked all nights and would never get to have dinner together as a Family or watch a movie unless it was after 11pm and i get sleepy by than.....

It does feel great to see a sweet note left for me when the days i dont get to see him much telling me "he loves me and misses me"

Vacation time is soon as we will be driving to Oklahama in July and i will be able to "mug" on him all week.....

life is great and i have so much to be thankful for.....sometimes it just takes some adjustment for me than than I'm A okay.......
I'm just sayin......
