Interior Design

As a little girl I have always loved to look at beautiful homes. I would go to model homes with my mom and just dream and imagine how I would decorate my own home. There are so many different types of interior design, all different and equally pretty. I love the feel of French Country then add a little touch of Rustic and you have my ideal style. They both just make me feel warm and cozy, as if I could curl up on a big comfy couch with huge decorative pillows beside a roaring fire.
Well, now I get the chance to create and design. I recently took the opportunity to enroll in a college where I can take Interior design while still being a stay at home mom to our five rug rats! What is interior design? what all does it entail? Interior design made its appearance all the way back in the days of cave men. They would draw on the walls of their caves to beautify their space. It then integrated as the times changed. Ancient civilians, Middle ages, Renaissance..etc. There are six types of elements that pertain to decorating a space: Form, Pattern, Texture, Scale, Light, and Color. These elements have to blend together in order for the area being designed to look and feel right. I hope this has inspired you to want to beautify a space. I have learned it is never too late to case after your dreams! Let your creativity run wild and see what you can create! Beautiful pictures from Admin and M Pressions

Playing Catch UP

Since I have last blogged we have had a lot of new things happen. The most important change is, Alex joined the Army. He went into basic February of this year and graduated in May. Then after basic he stayed and went into Airborne School. Yes, that is where he learned to jump out of perfectly good airplanes.
He then was stationed in Anchorage, Alaska. We as a family decided to keep the kids and I here in KS because he is to deploy in December. Live is crazy but we have a lots of fun and have a lot of support.

Emergancy Emergancy

So Friday we decided to go to Nana & Papa's because Alex was off and we wanted to go swimming. I was inside talking to Pennie and she looked outside and said "I wonder what's wrong with Conner?" Alex was holding him and I just thought that he was loving on Conner and letting Conner feel safe in the water. Well, then I see Papa and Uncle Spencer come stand by him, then I realized what really happened. Conner had fallen out of his little tube in the pool, but his feet were still stuck in it keeping him from getting above water. GEEZE!! We were all swimming and having fun, and Nana was going to go to Dillon's and was just playing with Brodie chasing him around to tell him bye. Then I see her holding him and go to see what was wrong because Brodie doesn't really cuddle, she asks if I could go get Tim. Then as I walk by her I see blood on her shirt. Come to find out he fell and landed on their outside well and landed on a bolt. We took him to the ER and they had to do about 4-5 stitches. He was awesome, the nurses and doctor loved him and said over and over how cute he was. After they stitched him up he told them "thank you" and we were off to go home. Just a thought to Nana. This wasn't your fault so no feeling bad for it. Brodie is a boy and boo boos will happen.

Exciting Monday

Today has been pretty normal. Alex went to work at noon and then the kids all went down for their naps. When they got up I was just being lazy while they were watching a movie and playing. I had shut my eyes for just a few mins. and then Brodie woke me up and said he needed to go potty (he was running around with no diaper) I said ok then sit on your toilet, well then he brings his little Brodie toilet into the living room sat on it and then I heard it......he went!! He was so excited.
So all day without me saying a word he will sit down when he needs to go then tell me "look look" and I check and sure enough there is pee there! People tried to tell me to try sooner then before he was three, but mommy knows best and he is doing it all by himself. I made some cookies and I always let them lick the spoon or the beaters.
Now we are just wasting time til dad gets home.

Catching up

Since I last blogged Brodie had his third bithday. We did a small party here at our house then one with family. Brodie loved his cake and was so excited to eat it. Then on Friday we went to the zoo for some fun before his other party at Nana and Papa's.
Brodie was very excited as you can tell, but Conner was not. While we were there they had a fire truck there to spray water.
Brodie got right into the fun of it and ran all over. Brodie and Conner both ran and ran.
It was so fun to watch them. While at the party for Brodie at Nana and Papa's he got to eat more cake. We gave some to Conner and well, he's such a mess. Little Lexie got to eat a cheese stick, .she didn't mind. Then Brodie got his present from Nana and Papa.

Fun in the Sun

These were some pictures Aunt Jehn took of the kids at the park.

Brodie's First Cart

Brodie is our very smart and fun almost three year old. We went to Dillon's for some groceries and thought it would be fun to let Brodie have his own little cart. Thinking he would need help, because he is only almost three, I held on to the front of his little cart. Well, he didn't want me to do that so he moved my hand off and away he went. He followed behind Alex and I walked beside Brodie. He was so funny, he looked like he had been pushing a cart for years. We would need to turn around to go back the opposite way and he would just flip his cart around like it was old news. He is always surprising us with how smart he is. I love this little boy and I am excited to watch him grow. Don't mind his little nose, he was playing with Daddy and found the door frame with his nose :(
