Bountiful Blessings

Okay, seriously, this having three kids in diapers thing has to end soon! These are all from a 18-hour period. You are so lucky this isn't a scratch-n-sniff photo!

8 years!!

Yesterday was our eight year anniversary! It was basically a regular day - we'll celebrate a little when we get paid again. :)

I'm so happy with my wonderful man and all he does for his family - I couldn't ask for any better!

So Proud

What a great day we had yesterday! We are attempting the "potty training in three days or less" theory this Memorial Day weekend. We were really excited to start our weekend of poopy and peepee fun!

It started out a little crazy, with Mommy in charge of the potty reminders and nakedness because Daddy was outside working on the car. It was hectic, but could have been much worse. I got a little distracted, so missed a poopy accident until after the fact. Quite a mess to clean up, but kept pretty sane.

Long story short, with lots of fun successes involved, my boys did awesome! Lots of peepee visits, and one very exciting poopy visit each. We celebrated like we won the lottery on those two.

Unfortunately, with church this morning, lunch out and about (because I locked us out of the house this morning and had to go across town to get my mom's key), then naptime and grocery shopping, they were in diapers all day today. So we'll try again tomorrow, until we go to family's house for a Memorial Day - slash - bulk birthday dinner.

I'm so proud of my boys. We knew they were ready, but still.

Okay, some pictures... None of them came out that great, and I guess I'll spare you the zoom-ins of the products...

I gained some confidence last night and decided I'm going to continue updating this blog with what's up with our family. I may or may not be broadcasting its existence to family and friends, but that's not the point. I want to have an easy outlet to document our family's life, and a hardcopy just won't cut it.

So I'm tweaking the info on what this blog is, and making it one of the millions of cliche journals of a mom babbling about her kids, what they ate, said and pooped. That's okay, it's just for us. And I actually like some of those mommy-babble blogs. :)

I am thinking I probably will use this to keep family informed on our comings and goings too, so there! I don't sound defensive about this much at all, do I???

Again with the lameness!

Okay, I'll try to be more positive. I am working on that in general. I don't feel as negative as I know I come off to others, and I want to be a better representative of the joy I have in Christ and my family, so I'm working on it...

Anyway, I do feel lame that this blog has been totally neglected for, well, forever. I have such a tendency to get all fired up about something just to let it sit and be forgotten. So frustrating! Then when I think of taking up the blog work again, I feel like I'm copying someone, or like I'm talking about myself too much, etc. Wow, I am a downer! :)

So here I am, making an update. Just a note so I can tell myself it's possible to do.

Wow, my last update was about my boys almost turning two. They are almost three now and their new baby sister is three months old! Lots of changes, but lots has stayed the same. I'll never love my kids or be amazed by them any less as time goes by. I'll never be less impressed with my amazingly strong and giving husband.

Okay, all three are waking from their naps, so I'm outta here. Yay! It feels great to have finally done an update!
