New Hair

On Monday i got my hair done. I decided it was time for a change, so we dyed it red instead of my usual blonde highlights.... and i must admit that i really love it! It's completely different! Which is exactly what i was going for! :-)

Here is a picture of my new hair..

On the other hand i got my eyebrows waxed and i don't think i will ever do that again.. I got them done last year and i remember it being painful, but this year it's way worse..

Yesterday it felt like my eyebrows were on fire and they were itching really really badly.. Then this morning i wake up and one of my eyes is completely swollen, i could barely open it..

Hopefully they get better before my hubby gets home!

Gross, Gross, Gross

Since we've moved into this new house I've had to kill a few spiders, its getting colder out so i was expecting to have a few spiders come inside the house...

But what i wasn't expecting was these really creepy nasty looking spiders..

 I've never seen spiders like these before and so far I've had 3 of these in my house.. Here is a picture i found online of what they look like...

This isn't an exact picture of the ones I've encountered in my house, mine have more of a spidery type body and legs, but they do have these huge pincers...

Anyone know what type of spider this is?

Super Guy is dressing up as something like the Grim Reaper.. (oh how i miss the days of the duck)

Boogie Man is dressing up as an Angry Bird.. (better then a Grim Reaper)

Jelly Bean is dressing up as a flower.. :-)    (So glad i still have say in at least 1 of my kids costumes)

I'll post pictures later on today or tomorrow...

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!!

Day 11

Today is 11 days without my hubby..  :-( I miss him every minute of every day.. And the kids miss him just as much as i do...

I have to constantly remind myself as to why we are apart (money, doctors, schools, family, etc.), but some days that stuff just doesn't matter and all i want is my husband by my side. Today is one of those days :-(

Jelly Bean's Check Up

Yesterday i took Jelly Bean to the doctor for a check up and to get caught up on her Immunizations.

She weighs 25lbs (85%tile)
Her Length 31.5in (51%tile)

All around she is in the 90%tile

So she is a very healthy baby. :-)

She had to get 4 shots and they also took blood from her toe :-( She was not happy at all!!

Today she is still a little grumpy! Hopefully she starts feeling better soon!

Just another manic Monday

We had a pretty busy weekend, but it was a lot of fun!

Saturday we drove to Emmett (with my Sister & her husband) to visit my Grandpa and to do some Apple picking!

It was good to see my Grandpa again, i hadn't seen him since Christmas. It's always a little difficult for me to visit his house though, too many memories of my Grandma. As soon as i pull up into the driveway the first thing that hits me is; the memory of the morning my Grandma passed away and getting out of my parents car and seeing the sign "The Lee's" and breaking down crying.. That sign is still hanging up outside the house.

It's been what, 8 1/2 almost 9 years, since she passed and i still get teary eyed thinking about her. I suppose that will never go away.

*Sigh* Anyways after eating lunch with my Grandpa we went Apple picking!

The kids loved it, i don't think I've ever seen them eat so many apples before!! :-)

(**Super Guy refused to let me take any pictures of him.**)

Then on Sunday we had our Sunday Night Dinner with my sister & her husband. It's nice that we get together once a week and have a big family dinner, especially with my hubby being gone, it's nice to get some adult interaction. :-)

This week is going to be busy for us too.. Tomorrow Jelly Bean is going to be getting caught up on her Immunizations :-( I'm totally not looking forward to that. Wish us luck!

Photos from our anniversary in August

Our 9th Wedding Anniversary was at the end of August and we spent the day in Minot, ND.

We had been to Minot a few times and had always passed by the Scandinavian Heritage Center & thought it looked really cool, so this time we decided we would take the tour of the place... And it was so worth it!! The architecture alone is AMAZING.. Check it out for yourself with the pictures below...

This is the first thing you see as you head towards the Scandinavian Heritage Center.. We went inside this building, it is so cool!! :-)

"Let this globe depicting the seven continents of the world symbolize all our heritages"

This is a close up shot of the building in the first picture!

And this is inside that building!!

This thing was HUGE!!!

Meet the newest Fashionista!!

"I like to wear my brother's underwear, doesn't matter if they are dirty or clean!" - Jelly Bean

"Don't my Mommy's sunglasses look so good on me? I'm totally rockin' them!" - Jelly Bean

"My outfit just wasn't complete until i put on these beautiful bright turquoise fluffy socks."- Jelly Bean

I dont' know if it's just a girl thing (the boys never did this) or just a Jelly Bean thing, but if something is laying on the floor, it is fair game for her and you best believe, she is going to put it on. Some of the things I've caught her putting on are: Socks, Sunglasses, Boxers, Pull-up's (don't worry they weren't used), Belts, and a few other things..

But her need for putting on extra stuff doesn't just stop there, nope, even as I'm trying to dress Boogie Man she is right there trying to put her leg into his pants right along with him.  :-)

Lonely Nights

Why is it when you are all alone during the night you hear Every. Single. Noise.?!

I don't know if that happens to you, but it does to me. When my hubby is here i can sleep very soundly, but when he is gone, every little creak & squeak wakes/keeps me up.

Tonight is night 3 without him and normally if he was here we would be in bed by now, snoring away,  but here i am sitting in front of the TV watching re-runs at Midnight.

And i should be doing something productive that i haven't been able to get around to doing during the day with the kiddos around, like unpack/go through all the boxes that have filled up the garage (seriously how did we accumulate so much stuff?!), but let's face it, that ain't happenin' (Thanks a lot Mom & Dad for the super awesome procrastination gene).

Just a little late night rant.. Good Night everyone!

So i have some good news & bad news... Good news is I'm able to upload pictures again (Yay!), bad news is it takes forever just to upload one, so you probably wont see a lot of new pics.
But here are 2 pictures taken a few months ago in North Dakota.

No pictures, sorry folks!

I've been trying for weeks now to update my blog with the latest pictures of the kids, but for some reason every single picture i try to upload doesn't work, I get a "Server Error" message. It's super frustrating! So i have like hundreds of super cute (well i think all pictures of my kids are super cute) picture's of my kids & no way to share them with you. :-(

Anyways hopefully this issue will get fixed sometime soon.

In the meantime i will leave you with Our Family's favorite song right now, even Jelly Bean loves to sing along to this song! :-)

It's been awhile since i've posted anything, mainly just because i've been busy enjoying my life..

So much has happened since i've last posted; Father's day, my birthday, 4th of July, etc.

I'm not even sure where to start, but i'm thinking an update on the kids first..

Super Guy is 7 years old and full of energy. He loves going to work with his Daddy whenever he can (he loves building things and playing with tools). He still loves Lego's (he just bought 2 new sets of Lego's yesterday with some of his leftover birthday money). And thanks to Animal Planet/National Geographic he totally believes in Bigfoot and Aliens, Yep our Friday Nights are spent cuddled up in front of the TV watching new episodes of Chasing UFO's.

Boogie Man is 4 years old and also full of energy. He loves playing Angry Birds on our phones. He always wants to go to the playground (he loves the swings the most). He also loves music (his favorite song right now is Train's Drive By). And pretty much everyday he says something so funny (like on Saturday while eating ice cream he said "what is this? It's yummy, but it's yuck")

Jelly Bean is 14 Months Old and so much fun. She loves to kiss EVERYTHING (seriously she even kisses her own feet). She loves all stuffed animals & dolls (she will carry them around kissing on them and talking to them). And she also loves spending time outdoors.

My hubby and me are doing good as well. He is staying busy with work (which is always a good thing) and i've been trying to plan a family vacation to Mount Rushmore (although im not sure it will happen this year).

I also FINALLY got my new camera that i have been wanting for sooo long... :-) It arrived last Friday so over the weekend we decided to head out to the Lake to test it out.. Here are some new pictures taken with my new camera. :-)

Summer Vacation (2 weeks down, 10 weeks to go)

It's been almost 2 weeks since Super Guy's last day of school, and those 2 weeks have been filled with; lazy mornings, thunderstorms, bike riding, strolls through the neighborhood, and late nights... In other words, Pefect!! <3

Here are a few recent pictures...

She Walks!!!

Jelly Bean has been walking for the past couple of weeks.. Each day she does more and more steps... I'd say right now she is walking more then crawling!!!

I can't express in words what it feels like to have your baby girl walk up to you!!! <3

She also blows kisses, waves, claps, high-fives (sometimes), and (of course we can't forget) sings & dances..   :-)

Super Guy's Birthday Photos

Last Saturday was Super Guy's 7th Birthday, i still can't believe it's been 7 years since the first moment i laid my eyes on him and heard his wonderful "cooing" sounds.. (The 17 hours of labor were so worth it)

And now as I'm writing this, i am hearing his wonderful sounds of him playing with his little brother and sister... He really is a great big brother!! :-)

With each passing year he has just brought more and more joy & happiness into our family..

If you haven't been blessed to really get to know him, you sure are missing out.. Cause he is soo smart, creative, funny, sweet, and caring.

Here are some of the many photos from his 7th Birthday!

Reading his Birthday Card from Grandma & Grandpa.. (Thanks again!!)
