They Came..at last!!! (uuguh)

Sooo, after night after night, Day after day of thinking "it's gonna happen" it did! Saturday night Kit had 9 cute little babies. She was such a good girl. she had 6 then seemed to stop. Looking at her worried me cus she was still very lumpy! Lumps mean pups and she still had quite a few lumps...so she stopped and rested a bit and fed the 6 babies she had. The whole time I'm sitting there thinking (Sheesh, what are we gonna do with all of these) Then after making a phone call to "a very smart trusted good looking dog wise friend ;) " I was reassured that it's fine if she rested.. 1hour and 1/2 later she started up again. This time she didn't look as happy. Finally #7 was born. Not very easy for Kit. He was all black and was so cute. She had a hard time getting him cleaned up.Bye the time Brian got home she had delivered 8 puppies. I told Brian all about the night and then set out to the shower thinking she was done. I got in to the bathroom and I hear Bri yelling "Hey,Hey Charity,She's doing it again!" By the end of the night we had 9 little pups Kit was good all was well.....Sunday morning I was holding the Lil black one and he started choking..long sad story short he died...It's such a shitty feeling to have something so Lil and helpless die literally in your hands.. We hadn't let the kids around the pups yet so me and Bri just dealt with that together...Life goes on and things are getting better. We have one lil guy named Pinky ( fingernail polish on his paw) that we have to feed but things seem good. We are excited for them to get big enough to play with Hayden can't hardly wait. so that's the up date on our DLS's.... love ya all

Our Dirty Little Secret

Well it's no secret. She is as huge as a house. Not like we could hide it any more. Obviously if you don't spay or neuter your pets they will reproduce. Again and again. Nature is funny that way. so if you scroll down to um May's post you can read where I said " We are not doing this again." Guess What? We are.! Fun times! I really have taken a different approach this time in hopes that it will be a lot less emotionally draining. No ultrasounds and all that jazz. Just a normal dog having puppies. So there you have it. Our Dirty Little Secret. And if anyone wants to own a DLS they will be available to go home February 10th.

On Saturday the kids came running in screaming "Davin's bleeding!" Now my first reaction was (here we go again) because Hayden had been in twice already to get band aids for people. Then we heard Davin. Brian flew off the couch and up the stairs. He can move pretty fast when he wants to. When we got up there his mouth was just a bloody mess. The kids were all trying to explain at the same time. We got him to the sink and started rinsing. Ya know when there is alot of blood, but you don't want to scare your kid. That's how this was. When we looked in his mouth it was like "Wow that is not gonna work". Me and Bri were standing at the sink. Holding our little guy. We looked at each other and thought the same thing (Damn Kids) just kidding. We did both agree that something needed to be fixed. We tried and tried to get a hold of our dentist. Tried calling family members that had the dentist cell number. Tried the dentist again. After what seemed like for ever we reached him. Our dentist was in California at a wedding. We did however go see his partner. He was such a nice guy. He pulled the tooth and checked everything else out. We didn't end up stitching the lip closed but today it is nasty looken. I'm just glad it all worked out good and was only a tooth we lost. I love ya little Davin. Everyone be safe on the trampoline.:)

Grandpa Scoma

Well life truly does go on. A week ago today I was sitting at Grandpa funeral. As we all know though today I am sitting at my computer ignoring the laundry. Funny how life doesn't stop. (or the messes) Anyway I will say it was a good funeral. As good as one can be that is. It was fun to see family that I haven't seen in 12 yrs. On the other hand it made things a little more sad. Seeing everyone made being old a reality. When you don't see people for that amount of time. It is almost like a dream world that you knew them in.Seeing them made my dream world with all my memories change some. No longer is it me and Little Nino sleeping on Grandpas deck getting eaten by mosquito's. We are all grown up. That was more sad to me then the passing of Grandpa. The reality that this part of my life is over. sucks. I hope everyone is doing great. love you all.

Davin Brown Adams

I can't believe he is turning Six already. It seems to have gone bye way too fast. Davin has been such a fun little guy. I love being his mom. He threatens Brian that he is going to steal me away all the time. Then he usually follows that up with a kiss to prove his point. I love that he loves me so very much and so unconditionally. Because there are often times as a mom that I feel very unworthy of any of my kids love. Davin has always had a sweet little face that reminds me of "Roo" off of Winnie the Pooh. He is just so eager to make others smile and wants to be big and has such a tender little heart. He is such a cutie pie. I really can't think of what to say but that. He loves everyone and everything. I hope he will stay this way and the cold world wont change him to much. For now I will just relish in the constant request to snuggle and be stolen away bye my little boy. He truly has my heart. I Love You Davin!

Sweet Davin Brown

I love you and wish the best for you.

THE CHIEFS!!!!!! kinda

There isn't much to say except,WOW. If you were there you know what I mean. "It was like watching grown men herding cats." said Jason. " It was so cool!" said Jayme. (she and Hayden spent most the game on the playground) All in all it was a learning experience for the team and the coaches. They played like the true Chiefs.
Way to live up to the name boys. It was so cute and it will be fun to see the rest.

What is this Music

This post is for Bret. I told him I don't like FaceBook and I like blogger much better. His reply was, "That's because it's not all about you." So this post is for him. I made my music all about me. I do love blogger better.

The Cycle.....the other one

Lately I have felt a little crazy. I don't know how to explain it but hopefully you know what I mean. It seems like every night I go to sleep with great intentions. Only to wake up the next day already defeated. I think " Why clean? It is going to look like crap in an hour anyway." I was trying to explain to my niece that crazyness goes in cycles. Like your period. There is the week were life is great and I am supermom. I love everything and want to make everyone happy.Next is "It's all falling apart week" That would be the time when I try to over organize and get frustrated because (no one cares but me). Then the week of rage (Brian's fav) this is when I scream and yell and can't believe that kids leave there sock outside by the tramp, stuff like that ya know. Then finally the 'whatever' week. I just decide screw it. Well usually at the end of this cycle is the Crazyness part. That night where I stay up and get the house back in order and ready for the "life is great" week.Well anyway I was telling her that I haven't had that part of the cycle in a long time. I just go from Whatever week right into life is great week. It shows too. The house seems really chaotic. I think she understood that crazyness is just a part of the cycle and a needed thing. The crappy thing is I Think I am Going Through Crazyness Menopause. IS THERE A PILL FOR THIS?

Happy B-Day Drake

Drake and his cake!

Drake Lewis Adams

Wow 11 ! That went by so fast. My little super hero is growing up faster than a "speeding bullet." I really love you Drake. I love the memories you have made for us. I know that you do so much to help out in this family and I love you for that too. You've always been a good helper. Probably because Dad was in school and you knew I needed you. I love the boy you are and the man I know you will become. Your tender heart is a special thing. Always try and keep it that way. (that is a big reason I fell in love with Dad.) You are a great kid to be around and your humor and personality develop more and more each day. I think you are very witty and funny. Just remember to be respectful of others and never Joke or laugh at others expense. You are the best! We Love You! Happy B-Day!

The Bomb

Wow! I don't even know what to say. Maybe that is why I haven't said anything all month. I had Mom and Dad over for the first Grandparents Dinner. Little did I know it would also be the last. After they left I was telling the kids that they shouldn't talk about going swimming and all the other things they wanted to do when they had guest over. I told them that they should make them feel important and that we were glad they were there not hurry up and leave so we can swim. They all said okay and well then we went swimming. Anyway, when we got home Brian was gone to his football draft so I put the kids to bed. Then Mom called and said oh were moving and oh yeah in 2 weeks. What? I was like Oh. Yeah I just thought Oh. I just didn't know what to say. I got off the phone and had a breakdown. I think it was the shock of it was gonna happen so fast. I felt like the wind got knocked out of me. I text Brian and told him. I told him that my heart hurt. He knows that means its serious. I know it may sound dumb to a lot of people but I was truly heart broken. I kept thinking "Who's gonna do all my hair brained ideas with me?" I felt lost. I am so glad I have awesome big sisters that I can call. I am glad that they feel the same way as me about most things so I can call them and cry about our Mom and Dad moving away and I don't have to feel dumb. I know that Mom and Dad will have a good experience. It just sucks that it happened so fast. I think it will take awhile to get used to no Sunday dinners at Mom's. I will really really miss you. I cry when I think about it. I know time heals all wounds. and I hope this adventure is great for Mom and Dad. I wish you the Best.

The Laundry Situation

Do you agree that laundry is the worst job ever, ever, ever!? It doesn't really matter if you agree. I know for a fact without anyone agreeing with me that it is. I know this because it's the only chore that causes fights in our home. The worst is when I am trying to explain to Brian that I didn't know he needed the "green" scrubs but I did do laundry and the kids come in and say "Mom, I don't have any socks." and I am like "look in the sock basket then" and in comes Jayme "Mom I don't have any shirts for school......"well, did you look on the recliner in my room?" I mean don't they know how to look? Doesn't everyone keep there socks in a basket and there clothes (clean ones) on the recliner. If it is on the floor it is dirtyI hate it. I have to admit that I was never ever going to have a sock basket . It also grosses me out to watch the show Clean House or even Cops. Then I go through our bedroom and reality sets in. Then I kinda feel bad for the people on those shows and wonder if they just had a bad day or maybe just let the Laundry situation get out of hand.

Deck Update

Time for an update. The deck is almost done. It is about 3/4ths done. I do have to tell Brian how awesome he is for doing this thing. Our yard has changed so much. I love it. It will be so worth it in the end. Also a shout out to Jas. Without him it would have really sucked. Soon we can have a deck party. Can't wait.

First Day Back

Well like everyone they went back today. Drake started 5th grade. Jayme started 3rd and Davin is in Kindergarten. They were all excited but showed it in different ways. Drake was dead set against me walking him to class. Jayme was afraid no one would like her. Davin was just ready. Drake, well he did end up needing my help after all ;) and as you all know people just loved Jayme (how could you not) Davin did get to go for a little bit today and his first real day will be on Thursday. I am so excited for all of them. I remember the tears the day Drake left for Kindergarten and I think there were some when he went to 1st grade. Now it is more tears of joy that they have to go. j/k I really do love them to pieces and know that they are having fun there. As you can tell by the picture (cell phone in the parking lot) the day was crazy. At least there is this one to remember it by. Best wishes to all back to schoolers and cheers to all stay at home moms :0

Our Summer Trip

We finally made the trip to AZ. I was sitting around thinking and realized that school starts on August 12th. That is only two weeks away. It seems like the summer has flown by. We never really went anywhere with the kids. So we decided that this was the time to go. Lucky for us the 24th is a day off for Bri. He ended up taking Friday off and that way we could go for 5 days. It was so worth the drive. The kids had so much fun together. Me and Shannon and Amanda went to the spa on the 24th for Amanda's 15th B-day. It was so so so fun. Brian spent the morning with the kids and then took Jayme and Becca (two 8 year olds) shopping. Then we all met up for lunch at the Cheese Cake Factory. The day was good and fun. The rest of the week we played in the pool, and our new favorite game,Ticket to Ride. On Saturday it was my b-day. Shannon made me tons of cinnamon rolls and we went to eat at Caraba's (the best place ever). Then we went to Jestrz Improv Club. They were hilarious. We did also go to a water park.( some people may still be chaffed from that) All in all it was a fun time and the kids now have something to write about when the teacher asks them what they did over summer break.

Fun Memories

A Game called Memory Lane. I saw this on Jessica's blog and I thought it sounded like fun but only if people really left a memory in the comments so please do!

Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

Even if you don't want to play please leave a comment and you could leave it anonymous if you want!

"Man I wish it was Swinter!"

Well as you know we have been working on the yard this year. It truly sucks. It will be worth it in the end. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. We did get the middle level taken out and the fake grass in. It does look pretty sweet. If I could have recorded the day we had to haul the fake grass to the back yard, it would be the funniest video ever. Imagine Brian ( after hours of working with me and the kids) he was so tiered and moody and ready to be done. We get ready to move the grass and I can't pick it up. I could kinda wrap my arms around it and move a little but holy cow it was so so heavy and well lets just say " Ugh Charity, are you serious?" was said tons and a few other words that would look like this #@%$@% *&^*&$ . Anyway we figured out a plan ( really I figured it out). We put the lawnmower under my end and me and Drake and Jayme pushed that while Brian carried the other end. How the heck he did that I don't know. Yes I do It was his Muscles. Anyway we did it and it would be classic to see footage of it. now we are on the deck phase and it goes about as well. Me and the kids and Brian tried to do it yesterday and we got one board done in three hours! I am not kidding THREE HOURS = ONE BOARD. It was &%@^%$^%$. but during those three hours we grew closer as a family ;) Not really but what ever. We did have a fun conversation about SWINTER though. While holding the board in the 102 degree sun Jayme tells us "Man I wish it was Swinter. Then I wouldn't be so hot. Ya know when it is winter in the summer?"She said. We all had a laugh and about five minutes later Brian finally called it and we went in. All in all it will be worth it in the end. Hopefully!
