Livin Large

Last school year my Mother in-law had told me about a group of girls at the High School who were starting a club this year. The group is called Livin Large. It is made up of about 15-20 girls. All students at Mountain View H.S. Two girls created the group to motivate, support, uplift and learn from each other. I am sure by the title you can all figure out that they are mostly plus size girls. I being a plus size woman look up to these girls so much! They all embrace who they are and are proud to be in this club!
They put together a Fashion Show, all of it! They were able to get Torrid to donate the clothes, and they organized entertainment. It was truly amazing.
So you are prolly wondering where I come into all this. Patti told me about this group for a reason(well for one she loves me) they had mentioned they needed a photographer to her. I had just got my camera and was getting in to that(you all know that story by now). Patti told them about me and that I might be interested in volunteering my time and talent. When she told me about it I was totally interested and told her to count me in!!!
The months passed and I really forgot about it. Well I was reminded and I went to a couple meetings then they had the Fashion Show last Tuesday.
All in all it was great. I was really blessed to be a part of it all. I had the opportunity to meet all the girls and participate in a couple meetings. I was able to talk to them about self esteem and confidence. It was an amazing experience! I have never been a part of something like this. I was honored and so grateful! The two presidents at the end of the show gave me a special thank you and presented me with some flowers. It was soo nice.
I have built a relationship with all these girls now and I hope to be able to inspire then and be a friend to them for a long time.

The little girl in all of us

We watched TinkerBell (10 times) I love it! It is so cute. Go buy it and watch it with your little tinks! They will love it I promise!!!

I love having two small girls! It brings out that little girl in me. I can live threw them, to imagine what they might be thinking when they watch Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella just excites me. I can remember being little and loving all the Disney movies and even remakes of Cinderella. There was one that comes to mind every time I think of Cinderella. My Mom video taped it off tv. It was not animated, so I loved it even more.

It made me think that Cinderella was a real girl. The costumes and all the glitter! I so much wish I could find that movie. I would love to watch it. On the other hand movies I really loved as a child I have watched as an adult and remember it so differently. I am not sure why but it might be that I know the reality is their are no Cinderellas and Tinker bells.
I get to see the wonder and excitement every time Madison and Trinity watch one of there Princess movies.
We have been waiting a long time for the Tinker bell movie to be released and today is the the day!!! I just reminded Madison and she was smiles from ear to ear. She said YES! Lets go get our Tinker bell. =)
They both like Tinker bell, there room is all tinker bell and fairies,tons of there clothes, silverware, plates you name it we have Tinker bell on Madison was Tink for Halloween last year and Trinity is Tink this year hehe

For those of you who have a similar crazy obsession with Tinker bell know today is a great day for all of us!!!! =)
Madison last year.

Trinity this year

All the faires=)

yeahhh today is the day!!

Things I will miss about summer

I got a twitch to blog when I was going threw some pictures from the last couple months. It made me think of all the things I love about summer, fall, winter, and spring. Our God has created such a creative beautiful planet, for us all to enjoy in so many ways. The way he provides for us and everything we need to not only survive but to thrive. How blessed we are to have such a beautiful place to live this life. The one thing that makes me appreciate this earth so much is the thought of what it will be like in the next life, our eternal life, with him!

Here are some of the things I will miss.
Fresh flowers

Going to the zoo
Beautiful scenery
Lazy beach days
4th of July
Farmers Market

Naked butts running around the back yard
My rose bush Nathan gave seven years ago
Dew drops on broccoli growing in the garden
Fresh Veggis
Fresh eggs

Happy Birthday Tia Tracie!

Today is my beautiful sister in -laws birthday! She and her family are missionaries in Peru so we are not able to spend this day along with many other special days with them. They are serving the Lord so we know that even if the miles are far they are always in our hearts and minds. It is hard to be so far away from someone you really care about and still are in the process of getting to know. I am so grateful for the internet, I can see live videos of sweet Isabella growing, and just today we were able to talk to Tracie, Ricky and Isa. Skype is a wonderful thing. Madison got to sing Happy Birthday to Tracie and we got to make Isa laugh! It is so wonderful! We miss her and lover her more then I could ever say!
So Happy Birthday Tracie you were in my thoughts all day! I look forward to every time we get to chat on Skype and say hi on video. I hope you had a great day, and whatever you wished for when you blew out your candles comes true! I look forward to the next time we will be able to hug and spend some quality time together!
Love your Sis,

My crazy, beautiful, tragic Life!!!!

I have had a million things running through my mind; this blog is always one of them. I can easily neglect this blog because those of you that read it will come back sooner or later. I love to update often and share my pictures and thoughts, and my life being a mom of four and a wife. I really hate when I keep putting it off, cuz then I have a trillion things to talk about and even more pictures to show you! I am not sure what I can do to help me keep on track with this blog, but I will try harder.
So the last time I posted I shared my exciting news with all of you about Madison. She is still on track and we have even gone to public restrooms and all has gone good so far. She has only had one accident. I am really happy with how the process went with her. She is such a sweet little thing, she has an attitude like no other but I love it and her more than chocolate!!! ;)

So as for an update as to what the Heuton Family has been up to it is going to be a little long so hold on tight and enjoy the next few minutes of reading..Lol just kidding It is not that bad but it is good so keep reading...Please no seriously don't leave... hello are you still there?? Anyone? Oh good there you are...heehe (it is late sorry I am a little loopy.)

The weekend before last I had great fun!! Saturday I went to lunch with Heidi we went to Romano's grill in Portland, she took me because I am going to take pictures at her baby shower, I think it was a fare trade! I love the place and she has never gone so it was a great pick. We had some yummy food and had a great talk. Here are a couple pictures of what we ate! It was so good!

Later that night I went to a bunko game with Heather and Whitney, it was really fun they had great prizes, food and drinks. It kind of got a little crazy with all the people but all in all it was a blast! I won a $10 gift card a $50 gift card and a big gift basket!!! I couldn't believe it! After the game was over us girls went to Back Alley and had a couple drinks, Heather never gets to go out so it was a special occasion and deserved a few drinks!!

I had the opportunity this last weekend to take Wedding pictures. I have never been as nervous for a photo shoot as I was for this wedding. I can always re shoot babies and kids but you can never get a wedding day back. So the pressure was on! I do tend to over think things and get stressed when it is not necessary, and it wasn't. I talked to Erica a couple days before the wedding so that I had an idea of what she wanted and time lines etc. Her and I came up with doing a back drop in the corner so that there was a nice place to take family pictures and such. So I went and got maroon fabric for the back drop, she had a fall theme wedding so I thought it would be a good color. I also got some sheer cream colored with sparkles fabric for the top. It ended up being great! I had a good place and I set up lighting so it turned out really good. I was worried but it was a great idea and it played out really well. Erica was a beautiful bride and the place looked great! It was a really nice wedding, I am happy for the both of them. It made me think of my special day. Getting married is such a great day; it was one thing I will always cherish forever. I married my best friend and the love of my life!

Sunday was a great day. It was my little brothers 26th birthday. We celebrated by going to dinner and hanging out. It was nice to have that time with him. I forgot my camera so no pics =(

I just love my little brother. I am really blessed to be so close to him! He is the best and always has been.

Then to conclude my update my Momma and I took the girls to the pumpkin patch yesterday it was so nice to go on a Monday afternoon. There was no one there!!! It was so great. No lines no crowds. We were in and out in like 30 minutes and that was only because we let them run around and look at pumpkins and corn stalks and the big witch, funny story about that actually. Madison was in the red wagon and I was pulling her around we came around a corner and there was a HUGE blown up witch. She said Oh my Mom... Mom it's an ummm a ummm Mom that is a bad word!!! I started cracking up I told her it was a just a Witch, she said yeah you told Whitney that was a bad word. I thought it was really cute yet kind crazy that she pays that much attention to my conversations with other people. She is a sponge right now; she has been taking so much in! Just to be clear I don't think witch is the bad word she was thinking of. ;)

To conclude I have some sad news. I found out that I just recently lost a baby. I didn't even know that I was pregnant until I started bleeding when it was not the time to be. I took a couple pregnancy tests and they were positive. I have had a few miscarriages the past few years. So I kind of know what to look for and feel and how things go. I took another pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. I called my Doctor to let her know the situation and she said it sounds like it was the same scenario as the last time according to her notes, and it pretty much was. I just went to the Hospital last time when I started bleeding cuz I was further along and knew I was pregnant. I am saddened but trust in the Lord that he knows all, and there is a reason it was not meant to be. We would have been very happy with a new addition to the family. When I took the first test and it was positive I was a little overwhelmed, I felt angry and excitement all at once. I wanted to plan the next pregnancy I wanted to have it all be up to me. I realize that God's plans are always perfect, he knows all, and it is not up to me to decide if I will have a baby or if I will not be able to keep it at all. I leave all this emotion and pain at his feet and only ask for comfort. My heart goes out to all you women who have lost a baby in the womb or after birth. I feel it is just not something we should ever have to experience.

I hope you all have a great weekend I will post a special post tomorrow so check back.

My Madison is growing up!

I will admit that this might not be to exciting for you, but I did promise some exciting news...
My Madison is getting so big! She is talking so much, I have full on conversations with her. Well I am very happy to announce that she is officially a big girl and no longer is in Diapers!! She is potty trained!!!!! Wahhoooooooo
She does still use a diaper at night but we are working on that. I am very happy for her, she feels like such a big girl. She really doesn’t even like wearing a diaper to bed but the bath room by her room is broken. Nathan will be fixing that this weekend. Then we will dive into night
It is a great feeling and accomplishment for a mother to teach her children new things especially how to use the bath room. I think that the last year and a half has been crazy, having two little girls. I get stressed out, and over whelmed and tend to over look some of the most precious moments I could be enjoying more. I just need to make a commitment to myself and family to slow down and breathe and take in all the really simple but great moments in life.
I am more thankful for my kids then I can ever express. Take the time ladies to enjoy your kids. (I will be trying to take my own advice) I know we will solider on and get the job done but the truth is we will rarely admit that sometimes we can't handle life, that at nap time we will cry, or when they go to bed we dream of a day being single with no responsibilities but the truth is Ladies we should talk about it more so that we are not alone!!! So we can know we are normal, and that all the other super moms out there are just too selfish to admit that are not perfect and have break down moments. I am no super mom and I am far from perfect but what I realize is that to our kids we are. We are super mom we are the best mom in the world (I realize they may forget this in there teen years). So band together moms and call a friend and tell them how you are really feeling about the red Kool-aid spilt on the just cleaned carpet, I promise she will know how you feel!

My baby at four months.

My big girl now!

Broken promise!!

So sorry I promised some good news last week and didn't deliver! My Laptop went all crazy on me. I can post from the main computer but I keep all my pictures on the Laptop. Posting a blog with no pictures just don't fly with me! I love a visual with a story so I am assuming you all do to! I promise I will deliver the good news soon. I will make you wait one more day.
This weekend was good. I had the kids Friday night, they both had friends spend the night. They had a lot of fun! Boys spent most of the night in Brandon's room playing the Xbox. Girls watched tv and did there make up and hair. Typical kid stuff. Saturday they all went to the park and played and picked berries. Nathan took them and I got some relax time!! It was nice.
Saturday night Nathan and I had some much needed alone time. We rented movies and hung out on the couch. I enjoyed every minute of it!
I unfortunately caught a cold Monday so I have been under the weather the last couple days!!! It is a head cold so runny nose then stuffy nose, cough, sinus pressure!! BLAH.. Let's hope it goes away soon!
