Am I crazy? , I'm crazy!


So basically the girls wanted a change for their bedroom! They begged me to let them paint their dressers...What was I thinking?? I guess, at least they will have them primed, before I have to actually get it done so it doesn't look kids did it.:)
Anyway, they are really enjoying themselves....I'm a little stressed...but no big deal, right? This will be fine! It was a perfect Saturday activity!:(

Here is my Ode to Shout...I love everything about you, my sweet laundry saving friend! I have children that abuse the heck out of their clothes and you never let me down. So I can feel safe spending WAY to much on back to school clothes,because I know you will be there for me, not if.. but WHEN the time comes...Thank you, thank you..
You know you've been a Mom WAY too long when you are writing "love letter's" to your cleaning products...But I seriously have a few things like that, that I personally LOVE! So ya, here's my shout out to all the best cleaning stuff out there! Since that is what I spend most of my time doing, I'm going to embrace it...It just isn't worth the fight anymore!!:) Oh, and if I didn't have a dishwasher, I don't think I would be able to live another day.. Oh and I know for sure I am in love the Magic Eraser and the Easy off BAM! Call me crazy...See if I care!

Does this make us country bumpkins???

Today instead of driving to our friend Lisa's to swim, we decided to go to Brandi's house. We intended to have the kids just play in the sprinkler....well 10 minutes into that they got bored, so Brandi's oldest son Travis got out a tarp and the hose.....the kids were hooked! We pretty much didn't hear a peep out of them after that! My kids were so mad when we had to leave...I think it is pretty funny and made some pretty good "redneck" pictures!:) Good times!!

Take me out to the Ballgame...

We have two 'church' teams playing baseball in Cameron, so I talked Seth into going to watch and cheer them on. ( they all ready had a full roster...we wanted to play:)but we aren't in either we didn't get first choice, anyway! Right before we left they called Seth because they needed one more guy..He was happy, he got to play, and I got to watch and take a few pics! It was really fun. They have a great group of people and all around everyone had a good time! The kids got to play on the playground equipment, run around and afterwards we got ice cream. Who could ask for a better summer night?? I think today we'll go swimming! I know,I know, I live the life...don't I!!:) he he he!

I am going to start this week off right!

Today... My life right now is going very well! I am however feeling really exhausted and empty lately. For no particular reason. Which got me thinking about a story. The one about filling your life up with the BIG (rocks) important things first, then all the other stuff fills in around it. (sand) So, I need to be better about choosing the "rocks" and letting everything else just filter in! So my goals for this week are to prioritize my life. Do the things I always intend to do, like read my scriptures, FIRST! Then I know I will feel better! It always amazes me how much Heavenly Father loves us...because no matter how long it's been since we prayed or read scriptures He is so quick to fill you with peace and love like you had been there for Him the whole time! Wow, we are so blessed and lucky to have Him, and the knowledge and clarity His teachings bring!

My life as it is right NOW!!


So, this is what I have been doing this week....taking pictures of Buildings, and random light fixtures! This picture is one of my favorite's! I kind of struggle with some of the boring, building's I have to take pictures of, but some of the stuff they do is amazing!! Seth told me not to think about things so"artsy"...but it's hard not too! I do have to say that some of the lighting they install is so cool. So this is quite an adventure for me....I am enjoying it, I'm not gonna lie...I just hope they are happy with what I am doing! Anyway, the kids are enjoying themselves either with my Mom, or with Natalie! (thanks y'all for the help!) It will only be crazy like this for a little while, then it will settle down to more like once a week, or so! Thanks for not posting hate mail to me...I will be back to blogging soon!! :)

Check out the sky!

So while we were swimming on Saturday night the craziest storm rolled in! It was fast, and furious! The kids were glad it didn't last long...but we had to take a few pics of the sky! Cool, huh!?

SO...I've been a little busy!


The saying is true...when it rains it pours!! I am still trying to fully recover from the past 3 weeks...and I am thinking I am getting closer. I have been offered a job doing photography for an electrical company, taking pictures of various job sites, and job's completed....and at different stages of completion. So anyway, I have been really busy trying to get a bunch of things done with that. I am very excited about the opportunity, and the skills I can learn and improve on! So, that is what I have been doing!
I am excited that I can do this "job" and still make my own hours, spending only one day a week away from the kids, and being able to edit the pictures at home! It really is ideal for me! Well, and I get to make a little money, too!!
On Saturday we went over to Bart and Lisa's house for a swim party/barbecue! We had so much fun! The kids didn't want to leave! So here is a picture of Jared....he LOVES swimming...and is getting really good at it!!

Advice anyone???

Okay, so pretty much I have been trying to find anything to do today, BUT the things I actually need to do! I am running on pure laziness, and lacking motivation BIG TIME!
So my question to all of you you know where I can find some motivation..maybe in pill form I could take??? ha ha ha ! You know, the lazy way out of being lazy! See, now I am just rambling on because if I get off the computer I will actually have to do something!! I need serious help!! ha ha ha! All right, maybe now that I have admitted that I have a problem I will be able to get passed it and move on....I'll keep you posted!

I almost forgot...





The Doan Family football game!! It was scorching HOT....but when you talk trash around here you better be able to back it up! So the Guys forced themselves outside to duke it out....They have so much fun! Even the little guys got into it this year!! This is a tradition that will continue on forever!! Check out these "action" shots!!

The "veggies" of our labor's!

So tonight we got to enjoy the YUMMIEST corn EVER......and we grew it ourselves!!! Yea! Talk about a huge accomplishment!! Seriously, I am NOT the gardening kind....but this year it is going so well, you might say I have been enjoying it!!:) Last night we went to my Mom's house and canned some more green beans, and pickles. (thanks,Mom) I haven't quite caught the "bug" for canning yet....maybe it will follow soon! We can only hope!!

Some of us changed clothes and we got our GROOVE on!!! Ya, seriously....we didn't hold anything back!!! Even Seth danced....AMAZING!!!
