Snack Attack!!

My kids are Snacking Monsters! All day, Riley would rather just have snacks, then actual food. before I quit my job, thats all they ever had. Mike is a snacker too. He only eats One meal a day! Which I feed him, otherwise he snakcs all day. 
Since I have been home, its been driving me crazy! "mommy can I hae a snack?" over and over every 20 mins!  Among other things.,. so I discovered Pintrest a few days ago. and I LOVE IT!! :)  Its inspiring. 

This is how it works..  ever google image search??.  its just like that except when You find something cool! You can put it on your "Board"..  I have 3 or 4 boards now. So when I have time.. or wanted to remember to make something or get something, I go to my board.. when you click on the picture it takes you to the site on how to make it, or where to get it! :)    You can also follow other peoples boards, which is great, because sometimes you dont know what your looking for.. until someone else finds it! :) 
Here is what I did.. tonight :)

I made these.. I changed a few things of course.. because I dont like Hummas... well actually I have never tried it.
I used ziplock snack bags, and filled them with everything.. One for the fridge and one for the pantry.. I figure I will tell them.. They will last2-3 days, and when its gone.. Its GONE! I pre-made about 50 more bags.. so I can easily replace them. :) I hope this works!

JOIN PINTREST!! its fun..  Click here to see my boards :)

5 question Friday!

This is my first time participating in 5 question friday! But I think I will try every week...  and I know I have been slacking at the vlogs lately.. but my goal this week is to Vlog :) 

So here are the questions this week...

1. Vow renewal ceremonies-yay or nay?
YES!!  Of course, Since we are having our vows renewed in may 2013..  There are several reasons.  One reason I think they are a good thing, is after so many years.. both people have changed and hopefully grown together, kids families new friends..  and you finally know what you want.. and there is less drama, no real nervousness about the whole thing.. just pure enjoyment and sharing the time with your family and friends.  :) Plus its a great reason to get everyone together, and an excuse for other families to take a vacation and enjoy time with each other also.

Question for you...??... Do you think its ok to have a honeymoon registery for vow renewals?.. since we never got to take a honeymoon the first time we got married?.

2. What sound/s annoy you the most?
Hmm.. tough.  There are lots of sounds that annoy me. I used to have tons of patience,  not so much lately.. I think the most annoying sound is Riley playing his video games next to my head when I am doing something else.. That drives ME CRAZY! and Mike too.  and he almost refuses to turn it down.. or he does a little trick.. when I yell "Turn it down".. he turns it up.. then down.. like I am not going to notice.. Duh.

3. If you had to pick, would you have only all boys, or only all girls for kids?
Oh NO  what a horrible question for me..  If I had to pick I think... I guess I would pick girls. just because I dont have one. Eventhough I know girls are harder then boys. BUT I wouldnt trade my boys for anything they are great! .. I'll have a girl someday :)

4. Do you believe in alternative medicine?
Yes, I think the brain is very powerful.. and so  if you truely believe in alternative medicine. it will work for you :) 

5. Would you take a family member's children and raise them if they needed it?
Of course!  :)  even friends kids, and I would love them like my own.

So Behind!!!

My sister Paige came to visit end of June..  I Love her SOOOOO Much!!   she is the glue of our family.  She reminds us to call each other, and to tell each other how special they are. Dani my other sister is so close.. but yet so far away!  only an hour or so.. & I miss her.. I miss being with them more often. Sisters have a special bond like no other!.  

We had fun when she came.. We went to the Vine for wings,   then Rawhide and got some really cool pictures taken. I have lots of pics to post but will just post this one for now and will update later.

We got to see my aunt D , and cousins Hannah and Jay..  and my godmother Rose ,. It was perfect,. it felt like Home..  to be around family, smile laugh and completely feel free to be 100% yourself is an amazing feeling.   Its different around some of mikes family.. I just dont feel like I can totally be me.. but I think its like that in every family.  and thats ok :) 

then we went to Missouri to see my other family.   Hot Sticky Horrible weather, but it was great to see the people I love, My grandpa is .. sorry honey.. but the most important man in my life, and I was so thankful to see him again.   The whole family got to meet our little turtle, They Adored him!  We played, mike slept..  Next time we visit it will NOT be in the summer.. I know we livel in AZ but Dry heat is SOOO much better, and less exhausting.   This is just a quick posting.. So here are a few quick pics.  :)  

My dad and Turtle..  :) 

My hubby..  Nearly melted the whole vacation. poor thing

My Pa  :) the kids had such a great time with him!

LOOK! Riley playing.. and happy!!  I dont see that allot lately

Turtle drives a Limo
My beautiful  step mom and my brother brandon :)
ok.. yeah thats a Few! We were there for 11 days, so I have hundreds! :)
I feel like these last few months have just flown by!  Riley starts school in a couple of weeks.. Im a bit nervous of how he will do,  but I know when he gets used to it, he will love it.

I'm still not on a schedule.. I feel like I am the Laziest person on the face of the earth! 

I've been.. taking pictures..   studying pictures. I have a boudiour photoshoot coming up in a couple of weeks! I am so excited and think I will do a great job! 

Mike and I are getting Re-Married in May 2013.. So I have been planning that..  (the main reason I havent posted in awhile) So much went wrong with our first wedding, and we have been thru so much, grown up, and changed.. and thru everything we are stronger, and in love.. not only with the good stuff about each other.. but all the flaws too and I am excited to do it again and share it with out kids :)   I know some people think im nuts.. But we are in the part of our life.. when people dont get together anymore..  and honesly people need a reason to visit, and take time out of their life to enjoy  themselves..So mike and I thought this would be a good reason to get everyone together.  :)
