Mouse in the House!!!

As for my new dilemma I have a mouse in my house. Not just anywhere it is in my bedroom and I am about to loose it. I am not scared of alot of things but mice I can not stand. It is not that I am afraid they are going to hurt me. I just can not stand them. Now let me just tell you in the past I have completely left home for days at a time until it was caught. The longest I stayed away was 3 days. I have actually stayed home this time and I am trying to not freak out while sitting on the couch. I saw one in the garage back before Christmas but since Santa left toys in there we have not been going in and out that door. Well Monday after Christmas Bradley was burning boxes and the boys were going in and out. And it doesn't matter how many times you tell them or how much bodily harm you threaten they still barely shut the door. I went in there 2 times and the door was halfway open. So that afternoon I saw it. It has to be that mouse. It ran from my bathroom to my bedroom towards my closet. Then Lucas saw it run under the tv back into my bedroom later that day. So I immediately went to buy some traps. We have slept on the couch the past two nights. That is the only way Bradley convinced me to stay home. He said he would sleep with me on the couch. So it has not been comfortable at all. We haven't got much sleep but hey I am not sleeping in that room until it is dead and gone. Well today I had got braver because it hadn't been seen again. I had about decided maybe it was gone. About noon I am sitting on the couch and there it goes again. I immediately got all the kids and we left I know I am a big chicken but I do not care I can not stand them. I stayed gone all day until Bradley got off work. I took the kids to McDonalds and the park. Then Lucas saw it while Bradley was taking a shower. It ran in my room again. So I went to wal-mart I thought we needed more traps. We officially have 8 regular traps and 4 glue boards. I thought while we were gone to church tonight we would get him. Negative!! How is it possible to have 12 traps and not get the mouse! So it looks like another night of sleeping on the couch! Dear god please let us get him soon. I think I might loose my mind if we don't. So you should have saw me trying to get clothes out for church. I was standing in the living room trying to tell Bradley what to get out of the closet. That was quiet a sight. I was so not going in
the room at all. Oh well if he don't get caught soon I do not know what I am going to do. We are supposed to be leaving for Atlanta Friday. I have to get some laundry done!

I want my Christmas tree down but we still have two more to go. One this weekend and then Gatlinburg with the Middlebrooks the next weekend. But that is ok I am looking forward to it. What I am really excited about is we leave for Disney in 2 months. I can not wait. I am so excited!!!! So say a prayer for me I do not loose my sanity. LOL

Thank God for Good People!

I will do a Christmas post tomorrow with pictures and everything but right now I just have to tell y'all this horrible story.

So today when we went to moms the kids wore their pj's as always and house shoes. Well after we ate and opened presents the kids were playing outside. Well Lucas wanted his tennis shoes and he kept asking me and Bradley to take him home so I told him after daddy took a nap he would take him. Well he kept on whining about it so I said what I say all the time " you can either wait or walk". So I see all the kids go outside and Michael is out back burning paper and boxes. We are all laying in the floor sleeping and Bradley is in bed. Like a hour goes by and 2 cops come to the door wanting Lucas' mom and dad. So I go out there and Lucas is in the back of the cop car. He apparently took me serious. He had walked right out the front door out the end of the subdivision and headed down Florence Rd (which is a very busy road) toward home. This is the part that scares me to death but I am so thankful for at the same time. Apparently a family stopped and saw him. They asked him to get in and he of course he said no and luckily they were persistent. So he tells them how to get home. Which he had already walked a good mile at least. I live probably 8-9 miles from moms house. They get almost to our subdivision when the family gets scared because they have took him so far and maybe he didn't know where he was going. So they called the police! The cops came got him. Lucas then showed them how to get home. The funny part is he is still on a mission to get his shoes. The cops tell Lucas no one is home and he says I know they are at my Mammie's house. He then takes them all the way back to mom's house. And that is the first time I even knew he was gone. When the cop told me all this I immediately start squalling like a baby. When they told me he got in the car with somebody I about lost it. I am so thankful it was good people that found him. It could have just as easily been a crazy person and he would be gone forever. It makes me so sick to think about that. I had a thousand emotions and thoughts run thru my head in about a minutes time. I tell you I felt like the most horrible mother ever. I saw how very easy it would be to loose him and my nerves were and still are shot. So when they finally let him out of the car he came over to me and his first words were "You didn't give me a key to get in the house" He had no clue what he did. He was on a mission to get his shoes. He said "Momma you told me to go". So after talking to him and explaining to him how bad it could have been. I am so very thankful that he is safe tonight. The strange thing is the very thing that scares me the most I am so thankful for. That someone stopped and picked him up. I do not know who the people were or were they came from but who ever they are I am so thankful and I pray god blesses them. On another note I am thankful that the cops were nice and saw that it was a honest mistake and that we are good people. The cop straight up told me I could take you to jail and take your kids with me now. For child neglect. He was walking with no shoes on too. He didn't want to mess his new house shoes up. I can not tell you how scared I am or how many tears I cried today. So my best Christmas present ever and always will be those people stopping and taking care of my child when I didn't even know he was missing.

All day I kept thinking about Papaw and I can't help think he sent those people to Lucas. I think he has a guardian angel. Thank you Lord for keeping my baby safe. I just keep thinking how different this day could have been!

Warning I am in a depressed bad mood! You may not want to read this!!

So I wake up this morning with Carter on my mind. I had a dream and he was there. So for some reason at 4am I am laying in bed thinking of the day he died. It was like I relived everything from about 5am until he died that afternoon. I laid in my bed crying. I could just see him fighting so hard to stay here with us. Then I could see the nurse checking his heart and that was it. Bradley had just stepped out of the room so I was standing there with Lebron and he lost it. I just stood there holding him up. Then Bradley walked in the room and I can still see the look on his face. I know we all thought we were prepared we knew he was dying for weeks. But you can not prepare yourself for that. I can see him laying there so peaceful and life less. It is the strangest thing in the world to me how one minute he was laying there alive and the next minute his body is there but it is so empty. I think the hardest part of all it was seeing this unemotional family all the sudden have real emotions. All these boys who have held it together for so long be so heartbroken and crying, telling there dad goodbye and they love him. Something I don't know I have ever seen and I hope I never have to see it again. Then the funeral where my little Lucas falls apart. He was so heart broken. To see him get in Nana's lap at the graveside and cry his little eyes out. But the most heartbreaking thing of all this is that Logan already barely remembers anything. You just had to know how crazy Logan and Carter were about each other. I used to joke that we had joint custody because I think he stayed there as much as he stayed home. So I warned you before you read this it wasn't going to be pretty!! I am sorry I had to vent to someone!!

The highlight of my day came when Lucas came in the living room in his underwear and Logan looks up at him and say Oh No Panty Man!! LOL I know why Carter loved him so much. Logan can put a smile on your face no matter how you feel! He is a mess!!!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas! I still have some shopping to do. Hope I am finished by Friday! I am really wanting a stress free Christmas Eve. I am usually still shopping. Well have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday Lucas Morgan!

Today my Lucas is turning 6! I can not believe it. Where has time gone? He is such a good little boy. He has never even had a bad mark at school. His teacher says she can always depend on Lucas to be dong what he is suppose to be doing. I think that is just like the biggest compliment. I think he is going to grow up to be a awesome man one day. Actually Lucas is a little Bradley. He is just like his dad. From the way he walks to the way he talks. He loves any kind of super hero you can think of it, Toy Story, basketball, football, baseball, playing games on his wii or computer and Disney World! The one thing he gets from me is that he wants to go to Disney World everyday. He is beautiful inside and out.

As you can see in the above picture of me it was the most miserable day of my life!
I have never been more swollen and my blood pressure has never been so high. But we got the best Christmas present ever. I have to say he wasn't the prettiest thing I ever seen but it was love at first sight. I could tell you things about that day that you probably wouldn't believe. It was awful. We all came out healthy and happy. I came home from the hospital the day before Christmas eve. It was the most relaxing Christmas eve I have ever had. Bradley and I sat on the couch all day just looking at him. We had this couch that had these huge pillows on it. We would lay Lucas on the pillow and he would sleep for hours. He was such a good baby. Slept all night before he was 2 weeks old. There is something about your first child that is just different. Not that I love him more it is just different with your first baby. I think it is just a learning experience with the first one. I always say the first one is the test dummy. lol Oh well Happy Birthday Lucas Mom and Dad love you so much!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Christmas already?!

Well I do not know what my problem is this year. I just ain't feeling it like usual. I am usually almost finished shopping by now. I literally have 4 presents under my tree. It seems like just the other day Levi was born. That was February! Christmas day he will be 10 months. And in case y'all haven't counted down the days yet. It is just 11 days until Christmas!!! It seems like I have had something going on everyday. Not to mention Lucas has started basketball and that is every Thursday practice and every Saturday a game. They have had two games already (and won both of them YAY). Tomorrow is his Christmas thing at school. Then he is off for Christmas vacation. We have a ton of stuff to do this weekend. I would love to get the rest of my shopping done. Or at least 90% of it. Bradley hasn't been shopping yet so he will be dong that this weekend. Which means anything I do I will have all three kids in tow. You know they can't shop with kids!! LOL Anyway I need a little Christmas spirit. The boys are so excited about Christmas. Lucas' birthday is next Tuesday and he will be 6. I can not believe it. Levi got his first tooth and his temper is bigger than he is. He has been doing so much better you just wouldn't believe it. Thank You Lord!! Oh well I hope everyone has a great weekend!! Merry Christmas
