I thought this day would never come!

So I am finally free of diaper duty after 4 1/2 years. I am so stoked that i am posting this to brag that the day has finally come. And I have also relized that my baby girl is growing up into a fiesty, independent little girl! So all of that hard work cleaning up after all those accidents and i kept loseing hope and giving up has finally paid off. So to all those mothers out their trying i know how you feel and don't give up.....oh and thanks Josh for helping me too!

Goodbye Grandpa Jorgenson

We heard yesterday that my Grandpa Jorgenson died. I am very sad because i have not seen him much in recent years. But I am also grateful that i was able to take the kids to meet him this summer while Josh was home for a week. I wish I had the picture of him and the kids to post but I can't find it at this time. But I have alot of good memories of him growing up and living at his farm. We Love and Miss You Grandpa and know that you are with are loving Heavenly Father.

We love to decorate for Holidays!

Well Ben has been bugging us since Halloween to get the Christmas things out. So of course the minute we left Thanksgiving dinner Ben wanted to get the decorations out.

We have a little tree that we let the kids decorate and play with. Ben kept telling Katie it was his tree when he was a little boy. So we might have to buy one just for katie.

We got some new candy caine light's for along our walkway. Ben is so funny hand always has to add that he is such a "great helper" and trys to get in the action anyway he can.

This is a little disturbing....sorry!

I put Josh to work as much as I can. He even dusted the plant shelf while he put up my decorations....thats what hes holding near his bum bum in the previous picture.

So after Josh left for work that day Ben was asking if Christmas was tomarrow. I am thinking to myself this is going to be a long month. I told him that we still have alot of days before santa comes. So he informed me that i needed to make a Chistmas calender. I wasn't really in the mood to make such a project but how could i say no. I did'nt have many supplies so i convinced him to make the rings that you take off everyday! Man i should do this for every holiday so I don't have to hear about if its time yet everday. LOL

Then Ben wanted a star for his little tree. So i made him this cheesy one. If you know me I'm not the crafty women i would like to be. I hate cleaning up the mess. But I am grateful that Ben is so creative and loves to invent great ideas. He always tells me " Mom, I have a great idea". Oh,and poor Ben has pink eye so thats why his eyes look so red. Some lady at the store lookes at me and said " wow, he loks so tired". LOL

Too many projects!

We had a little fun and let them paint their names .

Here is Katie's cute outfit. She always wants to wear her Princess jamie's and sometimes that involes more than one pair. But anyways we kept the burgandy wall and painted the dark green.
Here is some pic's of the desk we are painting for Ben.

So we have a great shot of Josh's oufit......love it!

I have no idea what I am doing!

I am working so HARD!
That is the desk behind me in the clutter.

So we have several projects going on at our house. First we started cleaning out our garage so that Josh's dad could bring up the sailboat and to this day i still can't put my car back into the garage. So in theses pictures you can see the crazy clutter we need to go through! Second project is painting this cute desk that Josh's sister gave to us for Ben. And i have to add that we still haven't finished that yet. ( I am laughing at myself right now). I am working on painting some picute frames that are going to be in my front room with our family pictures that i am in the middle of painting. Finally we did finish painting our family room wich i love. It was a dark green and now its a light tan-cream. What a mess and a project. I forgot how much i don't like to paint. Josh and i stayed up several late night while the kids were sleeping to paint. That is the best way to do things arounf our house since we have such" great helpers "Ben would say. I am glad its done so I can start hanging things that i have in my closet waiting until we got it painted! I will have to post the final pictures when I am done.
