Dreary Monday

I have to say that it is so dreary outside but I love this cool weather. It's not raining but really cloudy. It just makes me want to lay around all day but all of you that have children understand that is not possible. The boys spent the night with Carter and Edna last night so this morning I got to sleep until 9. It was so nice!! I got up started making my grocery list and going thru my paper and coupons. I was thinking I would run to Kroger and Publix then go get the boys. Well Lucas calls at 10:30 ready for me to come get him. Apparently Carter wasn't feeling very well today. So I took off down there got them and got back home. Now I am sitting here up to my eyeballs in coupons. I think I finally have everything together and all my lists made. I refuse to go with the kids so after Bradley gets home and we eat dinner. I will be off to the grocery store and then to moms to sew the rest of the night. We have so many orders with just no time to get them all done.

This weekend was so busy as a normal 4th weekend is for me. Friday night mom Brandy Leanne and I ran and did a little bit of shopping. Then Saturday was Addy's birthday party at 12 so after that we ran to the store to pick up some things for church that night. It was really good had a few visitors and Bro Shirley was here. I really enjoyed him as usual. Then Sunday we had even more visitors. It was good too! Sunday afternoon mom Leanne and I went to Aunt Veta's to spend time with Kyle, Amy,and Aunt Sheila before they headed home. By Sunday night I wasn't fit to kill. Bradley and I stopped by taco bell and as soon as we go home we went right to bed. We were so tired. He has been working 60 hours a week so he is so pooped. This week Carter has 1 Doctors appointment and Edna has two then our singing is Friday night and it is my time to work it. Then Monday Edna is having surgery. Not to mention all Bradley's family that will be here the weekend for the surgery. Oh well busy busy week ahead. I also really need to go find me something to wear to the singing. The kids already have new outfits. So if I get a chance I am going to try to find us something but who knows if that will happen.
On a exciting note it is two weeks from tomorrow I find out the gender of the baby. I am so excited. I finally had my self expecting a boy but then Saturday night I had a dream it was a girl. So who knows as long as it is healthy is all I really care about. Well my kids have fell asleep so I am going to get up from here and get some cleaning done!

Finally some GOOD news!!

I just got a call saying that my cousin Tiffany (Cardin) Pharris is on her way to Birmingham for a liver transplant. She has been so bad lately I wasn't sure if she was going to make it. So we are hoping for a easy surgery and for her to come out healthy. She still has a long road ahead but finally there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Thought I would share some good news with everyone. It seems to be rare these days!!

I am Thankful TOO!!!

Well I am going to join in on all the Thankfulness!!

-I am thankful for my wonderful husband. He is my best friend. That he has a GREAT job and I do not have to work. I choose to but not for long! I am thankful that the lord saved his soul! You don't know how many prayers where sent up for that! He is so sweet and caring. The best husband, daddy, and friend I could have ever asked for.

-For my 2 healthy little boys that somehow drive me up a tree and still make me more happy that words could ever explain. They are healthy and happy little boys!

-I am thankful that so far I have had a healthy pregnancy. It has not been easy but the baby and I are healthy so far and that is all I ask for!

-I am thankful for my mom and dad. My dad has not always done everything perfect but when I need something ran over to my house here he comes. Or if I need him to pick up my chicken on 4th Sunday he runs to CB to get it and take it to church so I don't have to leave early. And my mom she is like a hero in my eyes. She endured so much thru our childhood. She had to deal with more than even I will ever know but she did it with her head held high. She never ran all over the place telling her problems. She just dealt with them. She worked so many years at night when dad didn't. She brought me up knowing what was right. Still to this day if i need something she will either see that I have it or help me pray that the lord will work it out.

-I am thankful for my sisters... For Brandy we don't always see eye to eye but if I am ever truly in need she is there. We can fight and the next day it is over. If I need someone to talk to and know it will stay between us she is the person I can go to. She would give you everything she has if she likes you..LOL...J/K. If someone is down she jumps on the band wagon and tries to make it better. For LeAnne well LeAnne is very different from me but we can laugh and laugh and have a blast. She can always make me feel better with her stupidity.LOL..We are a creative team I say. I can imagine and she can put it together. She can do anything she puts her mind to. I am so thankful for my sisters they are my best friends

-I am also so thankful for all my family. We are super close. We don't all talk all the time but if something happens we are there and know they have our backs. We can talk about each other but you better NOT!!! LOL

-I am thankful for all my in laws...I can not tell you how strange these people are. The Pritchetts I mean. They put on this rough tough front but really underneath they are softies. They would give you the shirt off their back if they thought you needed it. They have been there for us so many times I can not even tell you. They keep my kids when I have to work. So many times we have been in need and they would leave us money on the table when they left our house. They are the best I could ever asked for!

-I am thankful for my church and my preacher...For how if I am sick they call the next day to see how I am feeling. I can not imagine my life anywhere else..

-I am thankful that I have a nice home with food in the pantry. A nice car to drive. That I have the things I need and some of my wants..

-Last but not least I am thankful for 12 years ago July1st. The day I received salvation. That I can still say 12 years later that I am still on of his.

Thanks everyone for pisting this. Made me think on the good today~~

How could I have forgot to blog about this. We have laughed about it so much! The first week of school when the kids told us about praying so much and Lucas said never did never will. Well the next time they went. We asked them again how the day went and if they had to pray again. Addy says " Yea we prayed but only for our Father, they wont let us pray for our mother" LOL You see they say the lords prayer "our Father which art in heaven..." Yea nothing in that prayer is about your mother. They are so crazy!

Also, Lucas braved his first day alone. Addy is in Alabama at her Gran's. So Lucas went all by his self today. The teacher he was going to be kind of sad at first but then when the other boys started getting there he perked up and had a great day. I also got the whole bragging on our kids thing Tuesday. They have two teachers and they think Lucas and Addy are the best kids ever. Which I think they are confused. They have never even got in trouble for talking too much. Which totally blows me away.

So on a fun note. The Cardin reunion starts tomorrow night at Rock Island State Park. We usually have so much fun. We eat play cards talk laugh alot eat alot more. The kids play ride their bicycles all day. We love it. I am kind of sad that Bradley will probably not get to go with me this year. He is working up at Opryland Hotel and they are working like 60 hours a week. So that means 10 hours tomorrow and Saturday. Which I am not complaining because work has been slow and if he is getting to work I am just thanking the good Lord that he still has a job! Oh well I am sure I will have some interesting stories to blog about next week! Have a nice weekend!

Favorite Time of Year!!

Okay... So I am not the only crazy person that is ready for Christmas! ( Chasity) I spend my year planning for Christmas. I love it. I love the trees and the get together! It is truly the most wonderful time of year! I actually will end up putting up about 10 trees only 3 will be in my house. LeAnne and I decorate trees and most of the time the whole house for other people. We are usually putting up trees from Halloween until Thanksgiving. I like to get them all up before Thanksgiving because our get togethers start first Sunday in December and last until the weekend after New Years. It is craziness! But I love it.

One of my other favorite things this time of year is BLACK FRIDAY shopping!! We usually start at the outlet mall that opens at midnight and hit all the stores there until Target, Wal-Mart,and Kohls open. Mom Leanne Brandy and I stay up all night and have so much fun! Of course if you know us we eat out at least 2 times and end up at Ihop at about 9 o'clock before we go home and go to bed. Last year we got back up at about 3 in the afternoon and Mom Brandy and I went to eat luch then to do some more shopping. LOL! We love to Christmas shop all season long. We load up all the kids usually dress them in some really cute outfits load up the strollers and head off. Of course we usually get nothing accomplished but we have tons of fun! LOL...Oh well now that I went on and on about Christmas...

I really love fall too. This is my 2nd favorite times of the year. I love the cool air, haunted houses, the colors and the pumpkin patch of course. We usually load all our kids up and get some cute pictures.

Well I am off to get my dinner out of the oven and head out to do some running around and meet with Sister Trinda about her Christmas stuff!Have a good rest of the week!

Welcome Krypto the Superdog!

We finally got a new puppy! Bradley said it was the boys puppy but he is so in love with this dog.
He even got up like 30 minutes early for work this morning to play with him before he had to leave. Bradley won't even get up early for breakfast..Anyway he is a 8 week old border collie and he is super sweet. Apparently the fattest and the sweetest of the litter. Lucas (and Bradley) named him Krypto the super dog. After some crazy cartoon about Superman's dog. LOL they are such weirdos. Anyway he is super cute and sweet.

We have been debating on getting a new dog for a long time. Bradley really wanted on for the KIDS!! You see we had the best dog ever "Zeke". Bradley got Zeke for his 16th bday. So when we got married and got our house he became our dog. Zeke was a weimeraner and he was super smart. He never ran away. He could open the gate but he always just stayed on the porch. Zeke was 13 and was in bad health. He got to where he wouldn't eat and never wanted to play. Then one Sunday morning we woke up and Zeke was gone. We believe he went away to die. We never saw him again. It was sad but he was old and sick. So we were hesitant to get a new dog because we knew he would have high standards to meet.

The boys love him and I am sure he will be a good a dog. Logan just lays down in the grass and lets the dog lick all over his face. It grosses me out! LOL But they are boys they don't care.

I went to the doctor today and I have lost 2lbs so I was happy about that. I also set up my ultrasound appointment. We find out the gender of the baby October 12th and I can't wait!!! You all know what I am hoping for right!!

Did I mention...

I have a ton of stuff to do this week! Well the big man upstairs must have just thought that was funny. I have literally either laid in bed flat on my back or sat on the couch all week. I am seriously dying with my back this week. The doctor thinks it is my Siatic nerve ( spelling ?) I am telling you it is driving me insane. I haven't got to work all week. My kids have been driving me banana's this week. Mainly because I am just miserable and they can't do anything by their selves. They literally have to play in what ever room I am in. Oh well Lucas has been a pretty big help to me. He is at the age where he can do everything you know and loves that he can help. But seriously my house needs some love. Bradley has tried to do some stuff. He mopped and waxed my floors dusted and done some laundry. Which his idea of doing laundry is washing drying and throwing on the couch! LOL He tries!! Oh well Logan spent the night with papaw and nana last night and Lucas went to school today. So I am actually alone. I am going to try to lay on the couch and hopefully get this back rested up!

Have a good rest of the week!
