What you missed W48

This week has been a little slow getting back into the groove! I won’t lie.....I’d much rather still be on holiday! ;-)
It was so wonderful and honestly, our family truly needed it! Although, that house from our Ouma and Oupa is far from childproof! We were so heart sore and tired of telling the kids no for everything that when we got home they’re were able to just about whatever they wanted!

What You Missed W46 and a goodbye! (only for now!)

Another week has passed here at Organized Chaos and well, for everyone at that! Life just keeps trucking on and I’ve had a little bit of mommy sadness as I realized this week how big my boys are getting! LJ turns one in under a month and my Lil Mister is storming head first into his threes! I knew it was coming, but wow....where did the time go!

Tuesday evening at the grocery store we were picking up items for our trip. I decided to grab a few jars of baby food since I’m not sure what Ouma and Oupa have planned for meals. LJ eats basically everything we eat, but better safe than sorry right! Hubby remembered one type that was Lil Misters favorite as a baby and asks why I don’t get it for LJ. I remarked that LJ is still too young for that type. He looked at me and confused said but the food is from 10 months. My eyes widened as I realized we’re already in our 11th month! I just don’t see where it happened!

The boys are becoming good friends as they play and terrorize our household on a daily basis and the love between them is beautiful! I can’t wait to spend this 10 days with them without interruptions from work! I think we all need it!

30 Days of Gratitude: Skype

Day 15: Nov 15, 2013
Today, I'm grateful for skype! Because I can now use this with my new phone....I spoke with my Dad on Wednesday for the first time in almost two years! It has made my whole month! I love this ability!!!

30 Days of Gratitude: Rain

Day 14: Nov 14, 2013
Today, I am grateful for the rain! This is an old picture but I love it still. Where we live we go months through the winter with absolutely no rain.
It's dry but good because it doesn't bring our winter temperatures lower.
But now with us moving into summer, we get those lovely night time storms! Our yard becomes flooded with the water and we sit back and listen to it dripple on the roof! It brings life to the dryness and rest to the heat of each day!
I absolutely love the rain!
