rewinding and venting!

Wow I know that sharing photos is updating some friends and family that follow my blog but I sure have been lacking in sharing anything with words lately and for that I am sorry.  I have been busy, I have yet to figure out how to juggle cleaning, taking care of my 3 little ones, and having time for me (aka my blog).  I spent all day Thursday cleaning... did ALOT of laundry and got it caught up, cleaned off counters, floors, did dishes.  Every room had been hit hard with making sure surfaces that always gather stuff had been cleaned off and that "stuff" put away.  I should show you guys the same house now, I can't believe it only lasted one day :(   I did all this so that maybe I could take one day off without having any major cleaning besides simple pick up which can never be avoided.  I wanted to pull out my scrap booking.  Something I haven't done in probably 6 months.  My oldest daughter has an album for each year of her life until 4 then it stops cause child #2 came along and I no longer had time.  She is 9 now and I have probably only gotten 10 more pages done in 5 years.  So I started albums for the twins.  I had only 2 pages each done with pictures of their birth.  I have stacks and stacks of printed pictures to go thro and make into album pages but I never have time to cause when mom takes a day off all her cleaning prep turns into another day of cleaning needed!  Laundry basket is again full, kitchen floor needs mopped again, toys need to be thrown away put up in their room. Even worse is that I didn't pick up my camera once. In saying that the follow pictures are from an earlier time and they are all SOOC since I also haven't had time to edit anything.
 This one is just playing with the kids in their room.  Notice the scratch on Alexis' face she apparently can't walk right in sandals and the sidewalk won.
 This was from mothers day when Alexis' hand was still wrapped up from burning it on the stove. I swear she gets herself hurt and banged up more than the boys do.  Anyways I am entering this one in the

This was just too cute! He ran to daddy when he came home from drill and the hat got thrown on him and of course its just super cute!
This little boy is just a ham and loves to smile for me with his red hair and baby blues!
Oh and my sister in law had her baby that I am not suppose to mention in anyway their names or pictures on the internet which I find super hard and weird but 9lbs! Oh my gosh better her than me... LOL
I am using this photo for the creative exchange
and this last photo for the I heart faces bright and vivid contest


  1. Love your slide shot! I look forward to your edit! Such a sweet composition!

  2. It is so nice to meet you Carrie, and what beautiful little ones you have!! I know what you mean about the photo albums. I kept up with my daughter's on an almost daily basis for the first year. Then my son came along, and you know I still don't think his is completely done, and he's almost 22 now!!!

    Thank you so much for linking up at The Creative Exchange today.

    Have a wonderful day!


  3. Oh- I totally hear you. My first has 3 baby books- all filled to the max. The other 2- I have them half completed & they are now 10 & 7. Terrible I know - but at least I am documenting these times of their lives through the blogs & I can get them printed up. No shortage of photographs. I also just started ordering prints of all my favs every month & just sticking them in regular albums. At that THAT is happening- the rest... not so much :)

  4. Your kids are just adorable! And I know what you mean about staying on top of everything, and I only have one kid--I can't even imagine how you do it with four! :D

  5. The Creative Exchange photo is lovely! The pink blossoms just pop right out of the surrounding shades of green. Your kiddos are adorable and your story makes me remember times long gone at my house! ;-) Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a comment.

  6. Cute kiddies! Beautiful pink flowers for Creative Exchange!
