Hello... I am a very pleased Mother of 3 beautiful and amazing children - 2 boys and 1 girl. I am a happily married woman to a smart and handsome man. Anyone who knows me knows that my life is kind of chaotic. I love crafts and consider myself to be a crafty person – I get it from my Mother. To squeeze a little “Me” time into my hectic life, I’ve created a Pinterest Crafts Club, or the P.C.C. A time where I can both craft and spend time with my friends. I love my little family. Life is hard right now, but I have faith that the Lord will never give me a trial that He doesn’t think I can overcome. But man, if trials make you stronger, I’ll be able to give Hercules a run for his money. Hahaha! Just Kidding ;) "You cannot kindle a fire in any other heart unless you have one burning in your own." ~Elder Harold B. Lee

Still Cross your Fingers

Ok, here we go again. That house I posted last... ya... we're not going to get it. Things fell threw. BUT I am glad to say that we have a Plan lol. 
So instead of buying, we are going to have to Rent. Still in Pocatello. So now I'm back on the hunt for a home to rent in Pocatello. 
Wish us luck, (again lol).

Cross Your Fingers!

This could possibly be our new house in Pocatello. Ugh! I want this so bad. We went and looked at it with a Realtor. It looked amazing. And it's only $69,000.
I'm applying for a loan today. If we can get the loan, then all we really need to do is sell our place we're in now.
If you have some extra room in your prayers, please let us in. Moving here would be the best idea/investment for my lil family.
We are so ready for a house.
I think we've done a good job about making our trailer a home but we are SO ready to make a house into home.
If things go the right way, we could be moved in before winter. Or at least December.
Welp.......here we go.
If this house doesn't work out, then we're back on hunt.

What The HECK?!

There's a pretty good story to go along with this one haha. 

So Zoey was looking a little shaggy. I like it a little more shaggy then the Normal schnauzer cut, so I asked for a puppy cut. 
A puppy cut is the same length all around her body. Sounds cute right? 
Well, the lady told me that the length would be the same all over as the length on her back. So I thought, ok, that will work. Her back length all over would be cute. 
Little did I know, that what she meant by her back hair length, was that when they cut it (the same length when they do the Normal schnauzer cut), then That's the length that would be all of her body.
So she came out looking like this.
All I thought when they brought her out was... 
"What the Heck?! I think you have the wrong dog. I own a Schnauzer, not a Chiwawa!"
Ah goodness.
Well at least when her hair does grow out it will look like what I wanted in the first place. 
Lesson learned, from now on, I'm cutting her hair and just going to the Vet to get her nails done (because I can't stand doing that).
Funny day. 

Best part was when J saw her for the first time after her cut. I said, "You wana see Zoey?"
J looked at her and said, "Whats that?!"
During dinner prayer... "Bless Mommy, J, Zay, Zoey..." *he paused for a while and then I looked at him*... then he said, "And Him"... he pointed to Zoey. 

O, and I wanted to show this pic too. 
I don't know what it is about this Tiny Little Cowboy hat...
but the boys won't stop playing with it.

If you're wondering, Yes, Zac is sitting on top of that table.
And Yes, he did climb up there all on his own.
He likes to sit there now a days while we are watching movies.

So we got back from NV last night (this morning) 12:15ish.
D and I stayed up to watch "Something Borrowed", so funny and cute.
Then we stayed up till around 4:30-5 looking at future maybe homes. The best part is, is that we have a very good chance of moving into a house pretty soon. I'm soo excited! I hope and pray that everything works out for us in the next few months.
We have 1 that we really like. It's prob the one we would go with. And then there is 1 other.... it would be crazy if we could work that one out. Like I said, hope everything goes good for us...
Hope and Pray!

Birthday Party!

Zac even went for J's cupcake when he wasn't paying attention.
It was fun to see him dig in like that. 
When it was J's 1st birthday, he didn't even want to touch his cake.

When J opened his presents he was so excited. 
Every time, he said, "Oh my Goodness!"
He hugged everyone who gave him a present. He was so happy.

Every 1st birthday, my parents give one BIG present. 
This was Zay's
He wouldn't stop playing it when we got home.


Both of the boys had so much fun. They both crashed on the ride home from the park. 
I'm so happy that they had a good time with their friends.

Happy Birthday to my first son Jason!
My first angel boy turned 3 yesterday.
Things were so hectic these past few days so I'm a little late in posting J's birthday pics

He was so happy that he got balloons too for his birthday. He accidentally or Zay accidentally 
let the balloons free outside. All I heard was "Booooooooooonnnns!"
and I knew they were gone.  

J was real excited about the gift he got. New cars from Pixar's Cars. 

I LOVE you SOO much J! From the moment you were born. 
Even though we have our rough days, our good, happy days make it all worth it.
The day you helped me feel better when I was crying... you put your arm around me and just sat with me,
the you said, "Mom, you so pretty".
I love you J!

Like I don't have enough things to be thinking about this week...cleaning house, getting a birthday party all sorted out, parents are coming, nails done (yay), working on editing D's Shed business website, finding out if we are going to NV next week or not for work - or if we stay here because we have sheds ordered, UGH - figuring out shed order stuff.
Man! I could go on and on..... but.....

I was just thinking...I really need to start working on my jewelry making if I'm ever going to be able to have enough to sell at that Fair in Nevada. Ran across some jewelry making websites and started thinking, why aren't I working on anything? Plus I did convince D to fork out the money, don't want to make him think it was just a faze I was going through. Because it's not...
I think what happened was that I got too excited and dove too deep. What I think I'm going to do is not do random pieces of jewelry. I'll pick like 5-8 designs I like and then just make a bulk amount of each in different colors and such.
I've already picked a few designs I liked.
The Fair will be for next year so when I feel I have enough for that, maybe I'll add a few more jewelry designs.
But this way, I think it will help me not to get too carried away.
If you're anything like me, you go into a craft/jewelry store, and think "I CAN DO MAKE THAT SOO EASY". But the thing is, you say that way too often and you bite off more then you can chew. Too many ideas at once. Hopefully by keeping my selling selection down to a few kinds at a bulk amount, I won't totally drive myself crazy lol

If you'd like to see what I'm working on... I've made another blog just for showing my stuff.

Well, he's done it. Survived it a YEAR in this crazy house. With his crazy Mother. His crazy Father. And most of all, his crazy Big Brother. 
I feel so lucky that we have this lil' man in our lives. He is such a good baby. He is sweet, funny, loving, cute, and wonderful. Not to mention he has slept through the night since he was like 4 months. Big difference from his Older Brother ha ha. 

This morning Zay's Father cooked him up his favorite breakfast. PANCAKES!
Zay was so happy.
And auctions once he started to smell what Dad was cooking.

I took some pictures of Zay and his Birthday balloons. This was the very first picture I got.
Ha ha. It's like he was saying, MoooooooooooooooM! Ha ha.

We are having a combined birthday party on Saturday. So, I thought that on their actual Birthday Birthday, that we could give the Mom and Dad gifts and at the party they get presents from friends and family.
Sooo, we got Zay some balloons and a rubberie lizard. He likes to chew on its head ha ha.
Happy Birthday Zay!
1 Year Old

Here, We, Go.........
It was decided, the box we have now is the LAST box of diapers that J is going to have.
All I hear from D is... ."He knows". haha
I have to admit though, one time D told J that he wasn't going to put back on a diaper after he changed a rather nasty one... J flipped out. Started crying, "Diaper, diaper... for pee pee".  Plus when he does need to go, he does go in his room or behind a chair. So he knows he needs to go somewhere. And he doesn't like "going" around people.
Ya, so I guess he does know.

I think I'm going to try and do the 10-15 min thing. Where every 10-15 min I just take him to the bathroom and sit him on the toilet. And not say things like "Do you need to go potty?" because I don't want him to feel like he has to have permission to go to the bathroom. Ah. we've already gone through one "big boy" undie today.
                                                                 Wish Me Luck!!!!

That man is so stubborn sometimes. D's old boss asked him if he could help out at work today. D said yes. Then his boss told him, after he agreed, that where he needed to help out was 3 hours away.
D took the bike. I had a bad dream last night about an accident and me being single, and miserable. So this morning I begged him to take the car. He of corse said things were ok and he's gone farther on it before. So ya, I told him to call me when he stops for gas and when he gets there.
I worry way too much. But it's just because I love him sooo much.
If you read this today, say a lil' prayer in your heart for him.
In this case, I pray my dreams don't come true.
