A Centaur tattoo of Patrick Swayze?? Seriously Why???

Who would ever get a tattoo like this?? Now don't get me wrong I love me some Patric Swayze(Dirty Dancing days) some even say my husband kind of looks like him. I just can't imagine putting this on your body permanently.. that means forever!!!

Oh and I wasn't aware Rainbows came in that shape.. what about you?
I can't stop laughing!! So funny!!

Why get a centaur tattoo of Patrick Swayze when you can get a cool tattoo of him looking like this???

Beautiful boogers

Madison and Trinity are the light of my life. They bring so much joy and laughter to this home. They both have great personalities and a very strong will. They grow so much each day and learn a lot from each other good and bad.
This last month they have decided that they would show the little monster side of there personalities a lot!! They always push the limits a little, climb on bathroom counters, get into lotion, baby wipes are there favorite thing to spread around the house.. Well they both topped the naughty list this month!
Last week Madison decided to climb on to the kitchen counter and get the scissors, she then hid in a corner and cut her hair, luckily just her bangs. It looks pretty funny. All this happened when I was in the shower and my 13 year old was in charge of watching them. I guess what ever she was doing at the time was more important then watching her two monster little sisters!

Here is a enjoy

She says I still beautiful momma right..
And I say ofcourse you are.

As for Trinity she is a sneaky little booger. She gets out of her bed in the morning and quietly comes down stairs. Usually she just gets in the wipes, or juice, sometimes lotion in the bathroom. I am usually really good about making sure stuff is up and things that could hurt her are way out of reach. Well on this particular morning I was in bed and woke up to Madison saying(yelling) you in bug trouble Trin Trin!!! At that moment I realized I left my purse downstairs with all my MAC make-up in it. I ran down stairs hoping that she was getting into anything but that, well all hope was lost when Madison heard my footsteps and said Moommmmaaa Trin is in you make up........
Let's just say I was not a happy camper, I love my makeup it is my small obsession. I spend a lot of money on this stuff and I take very good care of it. I always bring my purse up stairs with me at night so this doesn't happen. So really I have no one to blame but my self.

Kids in general are little scavengers they will find everything in the house they are not allowed to get into.
I didn't get a picture of the mess but oh there was a mess. Pigment eyeshadow was all over the floor and them, and they got into the mascara it was quite a scary sight. They were both golden chocolate brown and black! Lol.. all I can do is laugh. Laugh all the way to the MAC store to buy some more makeup:)
This is Trins mean face, you say do the face and this is what she does.. Quite the little monster hu
This is beautiful sweet

New direction

I have decided to bring a little more to this blog. If you read a few posts back I said I wanted to write about more interesting things. I want to Inspire! So I have taken some time to think about things I am good at that can be shared with all of you.... I am not saying I am the best at any of the things I am about to list. I am not saying Cynthia is super great in any way! I am just wanting to share what I know with all of you in hopes you might learn something and be inspired to try it your self.

The main reason for me wanting to do any of this is because all you bloggers have inspired me... just that simple. I feel I want to return the favor. =)

From now I will be blogging about (of course my kiddos that will never change)
Posts on these topics will not have a set schedule, they will be posted as often as I do them. I am hoping this will give me more of an incentive to do more with the things I love.
This will start February 1st, to give me some time to get a few things organized and put together.

Photography-Information might come by way of the pictures I take for the other topics. For example if I post about scrapbooking and do some editing on the pictures, I will include what I did to the pictures what program I used and where to buy it. What camera I was using the apature setting etc.
If it is just a family post I will at the bottom of the post add in all the Photography info. Please feel free to ask me anything in the comment section on any of the topics.

Cooking- I will post threw out the week different recipes I cook for my family, new things I have tried and link you to other web sites that offer great instruction on how to make great dishes.

Scrapbooking- I have been neglecting my scrapbooking, so I hope this will help me get back into it. I will show you step by step instruction on how to use different products, where to find them, and pretty much all the things I do to create the scrapbooks I make for my children, friends and family.

Crafting- I have so many ideas of things I want to create! Every time I get together with my Mother in law we chat and chat about all the ideas we have. We have to start making lists. So I want to at least twice a month post something crafty. My first craft will be hair bows. I go to a few different web sites spending a lot of money on what I feel can be created for a lot less! So that will be my first adventure! My mother in law has already started!! Look for a post soon.

My mother in law Patti H might make guest appearances on here as well. She is great with
cooking, calligraphy, sewing, drawing, painting... Well you catch my drift the woman is a craft making machine!!! You can find her blog here!

I look forward to starting this new adventure. Please let your friends, family and fellow bloggers know about me please!! =) It would be great to get some feed back once I start doing this.

btw I did get my new camera! It came yesterday in all of its beautiful glory!! I ripped open the box like a five year old on Christmas!! Ohh it is awesome. I am reading the manual, watching the videos and what not. I will have some pictures to share in a few days.

Have a great night I am off to cook dinner.

Anticipation is Killing me!!!

I get my New camera on Wednesday!! I can't wait. I have been checking the FedEx website twenty times a day! I am so excited!!! I sold my Kia Rio that I bought before I was with Nathan. We held on to it for so long for a few reasons, it was a great little car it got awesome gas mileage and it is nice to have a back up for when the main vehicles have problems. It was time to let it go we hadn't drove it in about 5 months! I was talking to Nathan one day and said "hey I should sell my car and get a new camera"(really just throwing it out there to see the reaction) He said go for it!
So there went the Kia aka Roxy and here comes the new camera aka awesome.
I am keeping my old camera, I should get it back from Ritz in the next week. I thought it would be fun to teach my mother in law what I know about Photography. I told her about it yesterday and she is really excited!
This way we both will have a Digital SLR camera and can shoot together! I am really excited! I think it will be lots of fun. I think I will talk to my Momma about it too. I am sure she wouldn't mind trying it out as well.

*Update 11:53* I just checked the FedEx website(heehee can't resist) IT WILL BE HERE TOMORROW!!!!!!!
Wahoooo Horrayyy Yipppieeeeee Boomb shakalaka Boom
I am happy can you tell?? =D
Ok I am done and I am going to bed now;)

So here is a little bit about what I am getting.
It is a Nikon D90 with five lenses,

Nikon 18-105mm

Nikon 70-300mm

Nikon 50mm prime lens

2x Telephoto Lens

Wide angel Fish Eye Lens

It also came with a bunch of other stuff memory cards, tripods, bags and so on! I got a really good deal on-line.

She is Back! NieNie

Nienie and her beloved Mr. Nielson, were injured when a private plane crashed on August 16th in St. Johns, AZ. Both suffered severe burns over their bodies. A third person on the plane, flight instructor Doug Kinneard, died the following day from his injuries.

Stephanie and Christian are parents to four young children, ages 2 to 7. Shortly after the accident, the children went to live with two of Stephanie's sisters in Utah. Who's blog I follow daily with hopes of hearing an update!

Stephanie has a huge following because of a blog she started, The NieNie Dialogues, to express her thoughts on motherhood, family life and her creative activities. When news of the crash was posted on her site, letters and e-mails began pouring in from all over the world.

I have followed this story since the day it happened, it is a story that will move you to tears make you laugh and restore your faith in more ways then you can count. I have kept up with the recovery of Nienie and her beloved Mr. Nielson, I have cried, laughed and became apart of this family.

Today is a long awaited day for us bloggers. The return of our NieNie! She kept it short and sweet, but spoke to all of us in a way way we needed her to. Just in true Nienie fashion!
If you are not a follower of NieNie I suggest you go take a peek. I would start form the beginning. There is much to learn form Stephanie, her family and children.

Welcome back Nienie! We continue to look forward to being a part of your journey!

Play Dough Fun

Madison got a big play dough pack for her Birthday, it has been a little hard for me to bust it out. I know that is will be a huge mess and I hate huge messes! Nana came over to visit last week and Madison begged her to play with her so being the nice Nana that she is she agreed
I laid a big garbage bag down and we got everything out and she was off!
Before she started she said she wanted to wear her cooker clothes Grandma made her(apron). Nathans mom made both Madison and Trinity the cutest little aprons for Christmas. I thought it was great Maddy thought of it all on her own to wear them.
Maddy and Nana played with play dough for a long time. She loved it, even uncle D got in on the action.

Uncle D playing with Maddy

They were taking this very seriously!

She loved playing with the knife!!
I love her expression!

Twilight Series

I finished the last book today. It was a great story. I wish that it wouldn't have been over so quickly! I am excited to see the movies. The first one was good but in true fashion the book was better.
One thing I do have to say is books like this sure do give young girls the wrong idea about love. Every girl wants the prince or the true love story but I am sorry to say love like this just don't exist!
I am happily married and love Nathan so much, but stories like this leave you wanting more from you spouse and it just is not healthy!! lol
I guess that is why it is just a book, but it would be nice if love like this was real. (minus the vampire/wolf thing)
New Moon is going to come out next November and then who knows about the last two. I hope they make them both! Having them a year apart stinks tho!

I would say if you are in need a a few tears and some blood pumping go read this series! I promise it won't let you down. I finished all four book in about two weeks New Moon in one day!! lol

Vote for her!! C jane enjoy it!

She is an amazing writer, she speaks form the heart and she and her sister have an amazing story that will bring you to tears.
She will also make you laugh so hard you almost pee!
Vote Here!

Is that even a word?? Oh well if it isn't!
I have been missing blogging, I miss rambling on to the imaginary huge audience of people who care about my blog. I fill a little void in my heart when I let "everyone" know how my family is doing and what what we have been up too. I appreciate the people who do read this blog and love you so very much for doing so.

I read random blogs every day, and I have a bunch of peoples blogs I read when ever they update and then follow the links on there page to other cool bloggers. It is safe to say it is my new addiction. I am so fascinated by all the normality in the people who blog. They are not famous or super rich or anything more then normal, relatable and inspirational!

I always wish I did have something better say on here. Something worth more then just.. just a family update or more pictures of my kids. Not that I don't love what I write about! I just feel there is a lot more to me and my thoughts and what goes on in my head as a Mother and Wife. I want to be able to tell people about it in a way that is normal, relatable and more then any thing inspirational! So if any of you have any suggestions I am all ears.

Lately I have been feeling a little umm well i don't really know, I guess just different. I think I can best describe it as a growing up feeling. I am trying to be more of a Mom and a Wife and less of a... I don't ever want to grow up cuz I am scared to death of being an un-cool chick. Or at least something like that. lol!
I just want to love life more and have really great experiences in this life. I want to connect with people, make new friends continue to be inspired and brought to tears by the amazing people that are out there in blog land.
I hope you all will see a change in me and my writing. I am going to make a effort to make small changes to help me grow up a little and remember to take a deep breath and just live this life because it is mine to live.

This is my passion

This is where I shop

This is what the little girl in me wants for her Birthday
This is where I will live in about 5 years
This made me laugh
This is an awesome artist

This is what I should be doing!
This is my obession!
This is what I am watching right now.

This caught my eye.
This is me.
