Three Musketeers!!!

These three have for sure become the three musketeers, especially this summer! Carli tries so hard to squeeze herself in with them and make it the four musketeers! They do play with her, but there are times when they leave to go to the pool or summer camp and she can't go! She has a meltdown on those days and says, "Why can't I be big like them???" I love these three! Deyanira and I laugh at the vision of them this summer. The movie, Sandlot comes to mind! Ha!

He's 17!

Austin had a wonderful first day of being 17!We had pizza for lunch! Mexican food for dinner! Birthday cake and presents!!
Anthony is out of town this week for work, BUT he drove in for Austin's Birthday dinner! YAY DAD!He wanted a new alarm clock!Now you know that the majority of Austin's seizures come from food. Fruit mainly. We do let him eat quite a bit of things he shouldn't, but fruit we never give him. This boy hasn't had a banana in a long time...would you believe that's what he wanted for his birthday?!?!?!Bless his heart! He was so excited! I'll keep you posted on how it went. He is going about 2-3 weeks without a seizure and some of those times aren't near as many in a day as before.

He was precious!
He went to bed really early the night before because he said, "Tomorrow's the big day! I need my rest to be a year older!"
Another thing he said, totally out of the blue, on our way to dinner was, " You know how on the Prisoner of Azcaban, Harry's time machine necklace? Well, if mom had one, we could all use it to go see her mom." We were so surprised he said that!

Our three kiddos have all had their birthdays in the past six weeks. Hopefully it'll slow down around here now.
I still can't believe that Austin is 17! Tyler is 13! Carli is 5! WOW!!!
Ugh, I'm old!

How have I been a mommy for that long? Well, no matter how long it's been, it's pleasure being able to have him! Challenging, sure. Honored though that I was picked! He's so sweet and funny!

I believe that I could fill every wall in every house in America with the amount of pictures I have of Austin! But could you blame me...look at how handsome he is! Cool and smooth from the beginning! Loves to pose for the camera!Oh my he melts our hearts!

Bestie Visit!

I was so ecstatic yesterday! I got to see my best friend Claire and her kiddos!We grew up next door to each other and have been besties since we were three and five years old! She lives out of state, so she's here visiting family in Texas. We don't go too terribly long without seeing each other, but still it's long! We hadn't seen each other since October, when I went with Claire for her 20th year class reunion.Carli and Harrison hadn't seen each other since May 2010 when they played at the mall together.And I hadn't gotten to hold that baby girl Kaitlyn since May 2010!
I don't know when Claire last saw my boys?
So, we were all very very ready to see each other!

Harrison and Carli played great together!
Kaitlyn was adorable toddling all over the house. She's 16 months old.
Claire and I had good conversation.
And the ONLY picture I have to show for it it...My Dr.Pepper that Claire brought me!
I'm sick that I took NOOO pictures of our visit!!!!!
What was wrong with me!?!

Claire-Bear, though there are no pictures, I will, like all our other visits, remember this one. I love you and your precious little ones. I get such a kick out of H and how he's such a little man!He's so funny and well mannered! K is so petite, pretty and sweet! They are exremely smart! You're a terrific momma!

LOVIN' My Scentsy!

When I say I am LOVIN' my Scentsy, I REALLY MEAN IT!I love picking what scents I'll be putting in each room! When there's so a huge selection of bars, it's kind of hard to pick...They're all SO GREAT!And when I tell you that I have Scentsy in EVERY SINGLE ROOM, I MEAN IT! Here's my entry way with a warmer. Wonderful way to welcome guests into your home! You can even smell it from outside the front door sometimes.My living room with a warmer.My kitchen with a warmer.My bedroom with a warmer.My bathroom with a plug in warmer.My laundry room with a scent pak.You know how your laundry room smells of dirty clothes. Also, if you're like me, I use "free and gentle" laundry detergent so there's no smell of that wonderful clean laundry. This way, my laundry room always smells like fresh, clean laundry!The hall bathroom with a plug in warmer. We leave this one on all night because it shines into the kids' hallway and is a great night light!Carli's room with a warmer. It's purple!Penny, the Scentsy Buddy for Carli's room. Although she goes lots of places with us. So it smells sweet where ever we go!Tyler's room and Austin's room with a scent pak.I can't imagine how icky those two teenage boys' rooms would smell without it!
Oh, and of course our cars, it's a must! I have a scent circle and Anthony has a travel tin.My purse with the all important fragrance foam! Gotta keep those hands free of germs!

Scentsy has been so wonderful! Even in the business aspect. I'm having a really fun time! I'm now a lead consultant and have five people on my team. The money has been nice extra money. I work the business as little or as much as I want. If you're interested in Scentsy products, want to have a basket, home, or online party, or would like to join my team, let me know.
