So, I was thinking....

I finally have some time to do a post other than pictures of my beautiful children. Although, I could do thousands of those and not mind at all! :) This has been a good week thus far. I started Nursing school and am loving it! It's already been challenging and a huge adjustment but I love it. Some things I am looking forward to this coming week:
-My friend Megan is having her C-Section Tuesday morning welcoming her second little girl. I can't wait to meet her!
-School (I'm pretty sure I won't be saying this for too long ;)
-Writing my "Argumentative" Essay on Vegetarian/Vegan Diets
-Cooking a "real" dinner at least one night for my Family before I leave to school. Vegetarian Tortilla soup. I'll add the recipe soon!
-Having a very important question answered (Can't say what it is yet, sorry!)
-Buying a gift for my friend Alisha's sweet little girl, Emarie. She is having surgery on Wednesday :( Wishing her the best of luck for a safe Surgery!
-Watching my Garden grow even bigger, 2 tomatoes so far!
-Cleaning the house thoroughly!
-Finally getting my books for school on Monday.. (And saving $200.00 on them!!) Buying them from another student.

I'm looking forward to this week! It will be very busy, but a good week.

Cool little dude.

Ridin' his "Buzz and ooooody" Scooter around the kitchen. Right now he's loving wearing his Sun glasses and hat ALL the time!


"Wait mom, let me take my shades off for this one"
"Yeahhhhh, I'm cool"


This smile MELTS my heart...

Eating his cous cous with his hands.. Ha. Yeah, it ended up all over the floor. Good thing he loves to help Mommy clean!

Some more edited Family pictures!

Just a few more! I think they turned out pretty great. I still need to get some framed... They were taken 3 months ago and I still haven't, kind of sad! I'll get to it soon.







Sidekicks...

These 2... Are inseparable! Brighton is quite the cruiser now a days. It's pretty cute to watch. You can tell he is just so proud of himself and so are we! So here, he made his way into the kitchen and decided to start kicking the cupboards (as usual) And Levin decided to join in on the fun:







I just love being a Mom to my sweet little boys!

Cucumber buds blooming...

"Gotta have my Pops"

I can't tell you the last time I have laughed this hard as when I saw Brighton rolling around in these pops. We have a coffee table and he had pulled the bowl off of the side of it.. Ate a few while watching some Wonder Pets. Then, he got a little bored and wanted to roll around the living room floor (his mode of transportation along with a little scooting.) He had some how rolled back over to the scene of the crime and got them stuck to his Bum and feet! Then, went on a rolling again. Each time he would roll over he would see that some would fall off, and he would hurry and eat them! SO funny, I ran and grabbed the Camera and snapped away. I love these little things that our children do, no matter what they can always make you smile!


"Look at me Ma!"

"Wait, I think there are a couple more pieces I forgot to grab!!"
Cute little teeth.
"Mmmmmmm, more cereal!"
Seriously!? Muchin on some more he found.

"Okay, I'm ready for another picture!"

I LOVE you Brighton!

Brighton's 9 month Well child check

Today was Brighton's 9 month well child check. He is doing great and growing wonderfully!
Weight: 22 lbs. 80%
Height: 29" 80%
Head Circumference: 18.5" 95%

His Ear surgery is scheduled Tentatively for August 18 around 6:00 am. I'm horrified but I know it's for the best. 7 ear infections in 6 months has been rough, especially for him. I am hopeful for a good outcome for him! I hate seeing him sick all the time. I'll keep you up-dated!

Another fun Summer Day!

First off, I just have to say how thankful I am to be a Stay at home Mom with my boys. I feel SO incredibly lucky. We may have a little less money, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Today was another fun day at our house. Little project for the day: Making home made Vegan pizza! Levin had a lot of fun!






How to make? You could make home made pizza dough If you wanted, I bought some pre-made that didn't have any dairy in it. Buy some pizza sauce, shredded cheese or Tofutti vegan brand If you wanted to try it Vegan and any toppings you want :) I just used what I had in the kitchen. Pre heat the oven to 425* and bake for 10-12 minutes depending on how crispy you like the crust. Enjoy!!

First day Of Nursing School!

My sweet Levee and I on my way out the door to go to school!

Today was my first day of Nursing school. I LOVED it! I am starting with some general education classes for now then I'll get to start on Nursing core classes next quarter. I love the school, the professors, everything about it! I made a new friend too, her name is Julie. She has children too and is In the Nursing program with me. We some how ended up having all of our classes together! And we will start our Nursing classes and Clinical's together in October. I am going to grow so much in the next 2 years here, I can't wait. The only difficult thing about tonight was not being able to be home to put my babies to sleep and thinking of the many nights I am not going to be there for them at bed time. I missed that so much, more than I ever thought I would. I looked at the clock while sitting in math at 8:00, quite sad and got a little teary eyed missing them and Micah. I know it will be worth it in the end, it will just take some getting used to.. Here's to a Fabulous, successful next 2 years! I'll be up-dating how school is going in the next little while. Wish me luck!

Just a few cute recent pictures of the boys!



On our walk..After running through the sprinklers, found this stream and he was splashing in it. So cute!


I got this from Lagoon for Levin and he loves it! He trots around on it neighing like a horse.
Brighton and I, 4th of July weekend playing on the blanket in the grass.
Levin, sick with a 103* fever.
Brighton having some snacks. I did his hair this day into a teeny, tiny mo hawk.
What happens when Daddy's in charge ;)


Brighton eating a half of an oreo cookie without the frosting. MESSY! But he loved it.

A little change begins tomorrow.

I got accepted into Nursing school earlier this Summer and start tomorrow! Finally! I was one of the 12 out of around 100 that applied that got accepted :-) I'll be there 5 nights a week, from about 4:30-10:30 pm. I'm starting with 9 credits for the first term to help adjust to it a little more easily. (not that this will be easy in the least bit.) My classes this semester are: English 1010, A student success course and Math 1050. I am going to miss putting my babies to sleep beyond words. At least I will have the weekends to do that, and am fortunate enough to be able to stay home with my babies all during the day. So, wish me luck! I'll need it :) 2 years and I'll have my dream job, finally. I have been a Medical Assistant for 6 years now, it's about time for the next step.
