Happy New Year from Our Family to Yours

Well here we are again at the end of another year! 2010 has flown by it seems to me but with a busy schedule, work, and family life its no wonder.
New Years always bring about resolutions that people make and never keep, I have decided that this year I am not making resolutions I am gonna just make it a goal to live life to the fullest, play and laugh more with my children, and GROW more in Christ! Yeah I guess you could say those are resolutions but its some things that shouldn't be those are things that should just happen because life is too short to not partake in those everyday!
Even though we were originally going to be welcoming in a 4Th child in 2011 I am OK that we are not now! I have grown to live with the fact that it was not the Lords will and that He knows what its best! If God See's fit to add to our already crazy life then it will be in His time! No more thinking about it, depressed about it, it just is what it is!
Here's to a wonderful New Year and I pray that you all have a wonderful and prosperous new year!

A climbing we will go!

So the newest thing in the Adkinson house is climbing! Not just your ordinary climbing im talking climbing harness and repelling! Its crazy! Now Bryson is just obsessed with this climbing thing.
He is a boy for sure! While driving down the interstate he saw the big mountain side and said I sure wish I could climb that! David of course replied by saying me too buddy. Oh me now I am not so sure about all this because to me it seems so dangerous even though David has asked all the questions and taken all the precautionary measures possible it still worries me a tad.
All in all its great bonding time with David and the kids, its exercise, and they get to experience God's wonderful creation!
P.S. Bella only tried it out one time she will not be doing any climbing any time soon LOL! Bailee enjoys it but will have to save her money to buy her own harness and let me just say that wont be happening anytime soon, the girl couldnt even hold on to her tooth fairy money! By the way there is a funny story behind all that I should share maybe next time! :0)

Hard to accept!

This week it has been super busy the kids are on fall break but instead of relaxing we have had a ton of things to do. Although I'm thankful that they are out of school and we can get all these things done I would also like to just hang out and have fun with the kiddo's.
Today Bailee had to go to the dentist well she was having a tooth pulled and an orthodontic appliance piece put in so we were there for almost 2 hours.
Normally I wouldn't mind having to wait I got a grocery list done, I forgot my phone that was a real bummer. But anyway it is a Pediatric Dentist Office and sometimes that can be an annoying place! Today it wasn't the kids that were bothering me it was the parents. Not that they were doing anything wrong it was just that one was pregnant and one had a 3 month old every family that was there had 4 kids and I just could not quit thinking about how I am suppose to be pregnant right now.
I thought I was over all of this with the miscarriage but apparently I'm not because I just wanted to run out of that place. I felt almost envious even though I know that is wrong. How do you get past that feeling??
Once we left it was better I guess because it wasn't right in my face. I just hope that with every week things will get better and I'm not stuck in a waiting room with pregnant women!

The Lord gives and takes away!

This post is a painful post to write but it is also a healing process. An unexpected pregnancy brought about some worries but then joy. I had some complications early on but after being placed on medication to help a hormone level I thought things would go as planned.
Last Tuesday October 5th I went to the doctor because of some problems and an ultrasound showed that their was nothing in my uterus. Very sad moment. The doctor told me I had a 50/50 chance that I was still pregnant. Blood work confirmed that the pregnancy was over.
I know that the Lord works all things for the good but it is still a very painful process to loose something that you already love.
It has been a ruff week and I am still dealing with all the emotional issues that go along with the miscarriage. It was also very hard because I had already told the kids that I was going to have another baby and they were all very excited and Bailee even cried when I told her what had happened. That in itself was just as hard to see your 6 and a half year old crying and understanding what had happened.
My son on the other hand asked what I now had in my tummy? A little laughter in the midst of pain is always helpful. But it has almost been a week, today has been an emotional day but I know with each passing day it will get better!

Chickens, Trampolines, Creeks, and McDOnald's

On Saturday I had a lot going on with cakes so David being the sweet husband that he is decided to take the kiddo's to his moms to play and hang out. Because of smoking and dogs the kids have not been to her house in a very very very long time. So they were very excited, the plan was they all were going but Bryson would have to stay outside the whole time.

That of course was no problem for them so they were very excited. A while back David's mom purchased some chickens and a neighbors little boy takes care of them. Well the kids were in play heaven because there were 4 kids to play with they had a trampoline, a creek, snapping turtles, rabbits, baby chicks, the chickens, a rooster, and I think that's it LOL.

The kids had a blast jumping on the trampoline, David said Bella had a very hard time on that she is just still too little she was all over the place he said. Bailee was more excited about holding the baby chick, im really glad we live in the city or other wise we would be having our own little farm. They had to jump a creek to get to the chicken coop so bryson thought that was a lot of fun and now David is convinced that Bryson is now ready to go hiking. That of course worked up a huge appetite which of course landed them at the good ole McDonald's to eat. Im glad that my kiddo's had some neat new experiences and it was nice for me to have a little time to get my cake done and of course some housework.:)

So Silly silly bands........

Silly bands I'm sure you all have seen or heard about silly bands by now! They are the latest craze!
Well of course my children are all about the silly bands. They have way too many, I mean like so many it leaves a mark on their arm if they leave them on overnight! Crazy I know that something that silly can be so popular.
Well as of yesterday those silly little things got not one but 2 of my kids in trouble at school! If I would have thought about it I would not have let them wear them but not thinking they would cause a problem I did not say anything to them about having them on.
Bryson was the first to tell me that he had gotten in trouble! He slowly told me the whole story and how his student teacher took it and threw it away. That I wasn't the happiest about at first but then thought to my self wait one less silly band. I explained to him they were to never be worn again.

So the afternoon continues on and then Bailee decides to tell me that she got in trouble with her silly bands as well. I ask her why and the reason that they BOTH Got in trouble was because they both had them in their mouth! Well Hello they both know better not so sure as to why that even happened in the first place!

Usually in the afternoon the kids know to clean out their backpacks and hang them by the door. I have to sign a sheet each day that tells about their behavior. Last night after putting the kids to bed I thought well where is Bailee's backpack, she had taken it in her room because she failed to mention to me that the teacher had marked her folder for not following directions.
Sneaky I know, but her teacher did have on there that she went from a 5 to a 4 because of not following directions and that she had earned herself back to a 5. Now this was a big deal in our house because one it was over something so SILLY that it shouldn't have been, but thankfully the teacher was understanding and gave Bailee a chance to redeem herself and all things are well now!
