I’m Still Alive

Well good googa mooga!  Time sure does pass by fast sometimes!  I’m still alive!  I had no idea a whole month passed by with me only posting one time.  Believe it or not, I am constantly thinking about my blog.  I have ideas, stories, so much I want to do on here, but like I’ve said a million times before, I don’t have a lot of time to do such things yet.  So this will be a post on updating you all on what’s been going on with me.

Nap Ride

29 Dec
December 29, 2012

When children are young, they usually need naps.  It used to be a lot easier when the kids were younger and slept in their cribs, but now that they have twin beds that they can climb in and out of and are full of energy, they don’t usually choose intentional down time. So we have resorted to ‘nap rides’.  We would do this once in a while back in the day when a child wouldn’t sleep and would fuss a lot.  It’s a no brainer and works every time.  Since we only have one vehicle, it gets tricky for me when Lance is at work or school.  He has had off lately due to Christmas break, so I have been utilizing the van everyday.

Baking Buddy

Max is my baking buddy. I’m not a baker.  He makes me bake.  I’m starting to like it, I must say.

The other day Max said he wanted to make cupcakes.  I haven’t made anything with him in a while because he usually does his baking with his Nana and Gpops when he is visiting with them.  So we went to the grocery store and picked out the ingredients.  He picked vanilla cake mix. Read more →

Ebbs and Flows

July 26, 2012

As I sit down to blog, I look at the time and I wonder if I should just go to bed.  I know that I am not able to blog during the day, so my only options are to blog at night.  When will the next time be?  I never know.

Life is full of ebbs and flows and I must remember this fact all of the time.  I am writing this post now because my life is mostly flowing and when it is not, I am not in the mood to write anything positive.  If I am not happy, I am not going to announce it to the world.  For instance, a lot of people will comment about how blessed I am, (which I am) and how great things are for me.  They will remark on how I handle everything fine, realizing that there are hard times but acting as if the hard times are no big deal for me.  While I do appreciate that they are giving me that much credit, I am not sharing all my hardships with the world to see while I have them.

I Have 3 Redheads

April 28, 2012

Whenever we go anywhere the number one question I hear is, “Where do they get their red hair from?”  All three of my kids have red hair.  Lance and I both have brown hair and neither of us have fair skin.  Lance is of Ukrainian heritage and I am half Japanese and Caucasian; meaning a mix of English, Scandinavian, and German.  My aunt has red hair and Lance can’t think of anyone that has red hair in his family.  But apparently we are both carriers for the red hair gene and that makes us able to have red headed children.  From everything that I have researched online, it seems that we had a 1 in 4 chance of having a red headed child.  So basically we beat those odds three times.  Yes, we have been buying lottery tickets and no dice!  Lance always says we won the baby lottery.
