I just wanted to show you what I have been trying to do lately after I get the older kids off to school. I have to admit it is SO much easier to eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut or drink an white chocolate mocha from Starbucks but then again if I didn't do any of that I wouldn't have to do this!! But, I feel SO much better after, plus it gives Kyler and I a chance to sing and see the great outdoors. Have a great day!

Our kitchen aid finally died! I have had it for about 8 years, my mom picked it up at a garage sale for $60.00 so I would say that I definitely got our money out of it. After using it in the store to make cupcakes and of course churn the butter it died. It was a sad day until.............
The milkman bought me a new one!! YEAH!! Isn't she a beaut!! She is so much bigger and I had so much fun making cupcakes and butter this last week! We got a great deal on it! Kohl's was having a sale, I had a coupon (of course) and I received Kohl's cash back! SHOOT!! that means I have to go shopping again BONUS!! Thank you milkman, I hope you all have a chance to stop in and see her sometime! Happy Monday! Have a great week!!

Kenton came home from school the other day and said "Mom can you please pray that my chickens will start laying eggs?" I said "Of course, but don't be bummed because it soon happen soon." He is realizing that he needs to get some income coming in to help pay for the feed. A little while later he comes flying in yelling "LOOK!" "LOOK!" and he holds up two eggs. He said "I guess God answers prayers fast!" I said "Not always that fast but He does answer our prayers." So, soon we will have eggs for sale in the store. I'm so thankful we have a God that cares about the smallest details of our lives and is alive and well to answer them.

I'm so thankful that we live so close to the milkman's folks. The kids are able to have all kinds of time with them. Grandma is always so helpful with the baby and she always does such fun things with the kids when they come to visit. She has taught them how to sew, crochet, garden and cook. I am so thankful for her and her sweet, patience spirit. I found Kyler and her out taking a morning walk yesterday. I am so grateful for her!!
Later in the morning Kyler fell and got a boo boo so she received her first band-aid she was so proud. What is it about Band-aids and kids? My kids always LOVED getting band-aids even if they didn't have any boo-boos. I hope today you have a great day and don't have any reason to get a band-aid!!! :)

Tiana turned the space under the staircase into a beauty salon then she came and found me and said "Mom can I play salon on you?" I said "Sure of course!" So, for the next 30 minutes she helped me find my groove!! :) When we were done I have to admit I felt like I just step out of high school in the 80's of course!! We had a great time!!It was something to comb all that "big hair" out!! Thanks Tiana for helping me find my inner 80's child! I missed her :) Kyler had to get involved as well she needs to grow a little more hair!!!

On Friday night some of my peeps and I went to see the movie "The Help" it was fabulous!!!!! It was a late night for some of us mothers I think I arrived home at around midnight (I thought I was going to turn into a pumpkin). After the movie we went to Applebee's for some appetizers and dessert they were delish!!! Thanks ladies for taking time out of your business lives to let your hair down and have a little fun! I love some good ole sister bonding time! But, next time we are going to have to get there earlier so Vera Mae and I don't have to be on seat patrol all by ourselves! HA HA!! Have a great week ladies and lets do it again real soon!

Oh, to be young again!! Natalia had one of her friends Hannah spend the night last night and they never went to sleep! So, at 3:45AM when the milkman's and mine alarm went off they wanted to come and help separate the milk from the cream and help start the cheese curds. They were really great help.......BUT, the funny thing was that after about an hour of working they thought they needed to go to bed!! PITIFUL!! Thanks girls really for your help, it helped my early morning go by fast and it was fun to talk to my almost freshman daughter. I still can't believe it, she is growing up way to fast!!!

We have good friends that showed their goats at the county fair, so we went to support the boys. Kenton was such a good brother showed Kyler around to keep her busy in between showings. What a good big brother and Kyler loves him so much!
This is how I feel most days before I get my coffee!!!Luke did a good job in fact, in the show ring he gave me a big ole smile!!Seth and his dad Doug. Seth's goat won first place in his division. It was fun to spend time with Doug, Robyn and the boys even if it was just for a little while. Good job boys!! Ya'll did great!
