Day 12 | Beaufort Newborn and Family Photographer

Well I have decided it takes me till late in the night to get these up. It’s the only time I don’t have kids or a hubby attached to me ha ha. I get this quiet time after everyone has gone to bed to gather my thoughts, relax with some Young Living Essential Oil {Lavender}. If your interested in those, let me know!!! I’ve been using the Lavender on my wrists at night to help me get and stay to sleep. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I was lazy all day and hung out with the littles and watched movies. About 5:30 I got some energy and actually cooked dinner for once. Usually my husband is the one who cooks dinner. He’s an awesome cook!
My boys always have chores, everyday, no questions. This is something I believe in and I will stand by over and over. They are responsible for dishes,trashes,cleaning their own bathroom and their own rooms. Occasionally they clean up after the dog outside. They pick up the living room so I can vacuum. They take laundry up and down the stairs. This may sound like a lot, but it’s really not. This is teaching them life skills. Dear Future Wives of my Sons, YOUR WELCOME!! They feel so picked on. As they are doing chores, friends are constantly ringing the door bell for them to come out and play. It’s distracting and I get annoyed. Their friends know they have chores, too bad they don’t have chores or this many chores. It’s quite sad. It teaches a boy how to become a man, a great man. They often love to help me cook. I love that. I want them to be as good of a cook as their daddy. It also helps teach responsibility. I think I will be starting in the next few weeks a new “thing”. I am going to have them choose one night to plan, purchase, prepare, and cook dinner each week. I really think they will enjoy this, and bonus.. it teaches them all kinds of goodness. Thanks for the idea Jessica!!
I haven’t gone grocery shopping in a few weeks, so we are low on supplies. I was too lazy ^^^ mentioned above… to go to the store to get any other supplies. I made due with what we had, hamburger, peppers, soy sauce and rice. I made this AMAZING beef stir fry. It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had!! My mouth was in heaven. The kids LOVED it. They had seconds. And we added in the fresh veggies to the side for yummy goodness. Dinner was a complete success tonight! *HAPPY MOM*

Jessica Woods - I honestly just love how you get the kids in there to help you! I think there are so many kids that never get taught the skills of cooking! We love and miss yall

Day 11 | Beaufort Newborn and Family Photographer

I know basketball again… It seems its a huge part of our lives until March! I apologize for all the basketball in the coming weeks. Oldest had his first basketball game today. He did ok! Still have some things to work on. We need to work on confidence with the ball. I am proud of them all, they played great! I can’t wait to cheer them on more!

Day 10 | Beaufort Newborn and Family Photographer

Today was a nice relaxed, chill day! Conrad slept in till 10! Seeing as I was up at 6, it was heaven for those hours of quiet. I should have been cleaning and working ,but the quiet doesn’t come around very often so I took advantage and watched a big girl show and relaxed. I ended up being very productive once he woke up anyway and accomplished twice what I wanted to! I’d say it was a great day. After the older ones got home Conrad and Kayli thought the blankets in my closet looked like a wonderful place to watch a silly movie! I loved it! <3 These moments are becoming more and more frequent and it makes my heart pitter patter! Good night all... I'll be posting sneak peeks from the homecoming I just got back from tomorrow morning!

Day 9 | Beaufort Newborn and Family Photographer

Yay! I am so proud of myself for making it to day 9. I may not have them up early, but darnit they are getting done! You’ll probably see alot of basketball photos during this too! I brought my big girl camera to practice tonight! I’m SO glad I did! He is doing really really well with basketball. He loves it and has fun doing it and that matters so much to me. I”m glad he has found his “sport”. His first game is on Saturday and I’m so so excited for it.
