10 weeks and counting.....

Here we are week 10
baby is perfect...i think i might have felt a flutter but not sure
making mommy sick as ever, so i hear God's whisper when he says let the house go....
He knows i have/had OCD about the house staying clean and laundry ...but that has kinda been put on when mommy feels okay..but thanks to my awesome kids and husband they have been helping so much with the things mommy was always on top of....
On the other hand Christmas is coming up way to fast...
tree is up but not decorated so were gonna attempt that tonight..would like to make fudge with the kids as well...will see if baby allows that...
hopefully trimester 2 will be easier on me..
LOrd here my prayer hehe
Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful Holiday of the birth of our magnificent Jesus...
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

and she meets Jesus...

A very special Grandma met Jesus on Friday night after 25 years of fighting Rheumatoid Arthritis.
She has always been such a special Grandma to me...One of the nicest people i have ever met in my life..
She was a true example of Jesus and she loved him with all her heart...
I know shes rejoicing in Heaven being healed 
and catching up with the loved ones she's been missing all these years...
I love you Grandma and I will truly miss you till we see each other again...
I hope i will be remembered as much as you are being remembered.. I wanna live my life more to be an example of Jesus just like you did..Im so glad you that my mom told you Im gonna have a baby because I wanted you to know ..I think Gods timing couldnt have been more perfect...and if its a girl she will have your middle name in remembrance of what an awesome Grandma you were and how much we truly loved you! 
We will always remember all the awesome memories from you
I love you

STretch Marks already

I am thinking Gods playing tricks on me...the sides of my legs have been having this throbbing pain since before i knew the "good news"
thought it was a bit odd but none the less..didnt think much of it..
one of my best friends said, "oh its your skin stretching love" say what??
im only 5 1/2 week strong..Um this doesn't happen so soon! I thought nothing does really...besides what baby is doing at this current has a heart beat now....sigh
SO i happen to see the side of my right leg and yep 4-5 lil stretch marks....
It surly doesn't pay to be skinny!

{I guess when God said he would bring me a baby, he brought all the fun things with it...}

Its my favorite season

Im secretly trying to get into the "fall mood" but its so hard when my air is still running 24/7 and were still having 100+* weather...Fall is deff my favorite time of the year...Its before winter(and ya'll know i hate the cold) , its when leaves start to change color and fall. Its hott coco (because your house inside is so freezing, B/c your hub loves it that way) , Its warm clothes and UGG boots..Its fall break, and kids laughing...its night time snuggle time too. Its warm muffins and soul food..Its Thanksgiving in Utah and family time...Its Dexter, Sons of Anarchy and Glee...
Its my favorite time!!

You know its love when....

You catch him , staring other places besides your eyes...

when hes got a great sense of humor

I found myself thinking about the what if's....
Having a husband in Law Enforcements is a scary yet rewarding Job!
A B-friends husbands sisters husband met Jesus a few weeks back to stage 4 brain tumor...
A cop was shot and killed a  month ago
Ive had a few dreams about me talking about how awesome my husband his funeral .
The last few days if i think about my dream , i get panic attacks.
I thought going thru a divorce was a hard thing, but loosing the man that makes my life completely complete is more than i can handle...
the last few days im sure my darling thought i was a bit nutty leaving VM asking if he was okay...(he knows why)
he carries a Gun (because he has too)
thats a scary thing...
he works in areas of town
you just dont walk down...
He wares a bullet proof vest ..

i couldn't imagine sleeping alone, having him takin from me before he gave me all the grey years . I love our weekends together, the house is just a little warmer when hes home..I love how much he loves his job and does everything in his power to protect us..i love that he makes it a point to know his family comes first..always
i love what a hard worker he is...i love his sense of humor..(today putting on my short lounge shorts, while telling me i shrunk his) they did look rather slimming on him i must say..
i love how he tries to make our vacations so fun
Disneyland here we come (next month)
i love how he agrees with me always- wait Im on to him..
i love how hes so attentive and loving to me and the kids, even when hes getting the rolling of the eyes or evil eye...poor step-dadda
i love his smile and the way he looks at me. makes my heart just melt. I  love how hes the most handsome man ever...i know i know we all think that about our loves..i love how he will re arrange his sced to fit mine, i would truly miss every part of him for the rest of my days..
Dear Jesus, please let him stay with me forever

ps..yes baby, even tho i would be so sad your gone i will play "another one bites the dust" at your funeral per your request...
i love you Chad Houston Towe
Plz be safe..

( dont you think he looks handsome in a dress)
Just sayin...

.Lets just say...i think the kids were a little excited.....Our day started at 6am by my lil loves waking me up...uh what time is it...check the clock.....6am!!!! What on earth are we doing up so early??? Even my girl was up, which all summer she will roll out of bed around 10am...(that was impressive Ash!) We still have 2 whole hrs till we gotta walk across the street hehe..(i not being a morning person, and never has been, waits till the last possible second to rise and shine)...thanks to my sleeping pill...i so happen to be wide awake as in shower other kid dressed, asking me if i need any help....did someone put fairy dust on their pillows??

Needless to say it was a fantastic morning..
i made them pose for me with a lil video of how excited they really were
and please dont let them fool you..

They Both came home and ranted and raved about how the prison( they think school looks like a prison hehe) turned out pretty swell...Both made a friend or 2 and got choc kisses and a note in their lunches from!

Letting it go..and letting God take control

Ive been having one of those days where, i cant seem to let things go...I'm so sensitive to what others think of me, what people say and what people do....with what happens and i cant control, with what disappoints me and what i have absolutely no control over, what and how i want things to be...that i get so wrapped up in trying to be someone else that i forget that i can be myself , that my true friends will always make me feel better when i make a simple phone call , they remind me of why i try day to day and why I am special..why we all have road bumps and why everything happens for a reason.....i have a hard time letting it GO! I dwell and make scenario in my head of what i think people are thinking that i drive myself insane...prob why I'm having a hard time getting today I'm letting Go....or at least trying to..HAHA

Positive thinking makes positive things happen!
I'm just sayin...

{"for the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake,
but my lovingkindness will not be removed from you,
& my covenant of peace will not be shaken,
says the Lord who has compassion on you."]

So i refer back to my faith in Jesus , i give him all my worries and struggles and let him do all the work my sensitive side cant handle, he gives me peace and reminds me that Im his child and he died on the cross for my Sins and that i am set free!

this also makes me remember why i am so lucky:

Today was a day of Hottness...Started off by leaving my house , Ashleys been wanting her bangs trimmed to the side like some of those newly girl stars everyone loves! Than to Frys to get dinner for us and the Shinns (baby number 4 has arrived! I get so busy with life and the constant flo of everything, the stresses from an X that so loves to be difficult and never ease up! I have a husband that continues to love me with out fail and do everything in his power to make sure i know it, i have worries and anxietys that i battle with daily and when i sit down and read blogs from i cry because i just have to let it all out!!! I could never amagine my life being turned upside down battling the most powerful desease here on earth...Thank you Jesus for the heathly lives you have givin my family and loved ones..thank you for dying on the cross and forgiving my sins! Thank you for telling me to calm my fears and teaching me to love on those who have wronged me, and those who i have wronged, i know theres a few=( sorry! I give all this to you Jesus! Heal my hurt and take my anxietys outta here! My favorite part of my day is at night when my kids are snuggled in bed, i lay next to them and watch them sleep, so peaceful , and i know nothing is better than that!!  GOD IS GOOD TO ME!

something to think about...

My name is Pride. I am a cheater.

I cheat you out your God-given destiny...
because you demand your own way.
I cheat you of contentment...
because you "deserve better than this."
I cheat you of knowledge... because you already know it all.
I cheat you of healing .... because you're too full of me to forgive.
I cheat you of holiness...
becasue you refuse to admit when you're wrong.
I cheat you of vision.....
because you'd rather look in the mirror than out a window.
I cheat you of genuine friendship...
because nobody's going to know the real you.
I cheat you of love....
because real romance demands sacrifice.
I cheat you of greatness in heaven...
becuase you refuse to wash another's feet on earth.
I cheat you of God's glory...
because I convince you to seek your own.
My name is Pride. I am a cheater.
You like me because you think I'm always looking out for you.
I'm looking to make a fool of you.
God has so much for you, I admit, but don't worry...
If you stick with me,


Mommy luv's fireworks!

Chad and I

cyber balls...all back together

Bradley sportin the "mohawk"

and .....ash the "diva"

This year we spend the 4th at Big league DreaMS
