Where does the time go?!!!

Seriously.....where does the time 'go'???? I've been busy...........I really have been. Jehnna had a really bad cold this past week, and I had to take off a day to tend to her. We took her to the doctors, and he gave us some meds to give to her. Do you know how hard it is to TRY to give medicine to a baby?!!! It is really hard, though I'm sure all you mothers out there know all about it! ;-) But she is doing MUCH, MUCH better today, and we're grateful for that. Didn't want her to be sick on her very first Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving: YAY!! It's only four days away!!!!!!! I'm excited, can ya tell?! I already have a turkey, because I'm making that, and some pumpkin pie. But all of my other family members are bringing a dish. I enjoy all the food, it's just THAT great!!!!! Ha ha, just don't like the idea of gaining about five pounds...........don't wanna think about that! I can always loose it after the holidays though, or at least I hope I can.

Brittney is doing well, dancing is going good. She really enjoys dancing at the football games and cheering for school events! Matthew, he's doing great. Been making lots of new friends....SO happy for him!!! He always loved having so many friends....the child can't be bored. LOL, he kinda takes after he momma!

Okay, and Jehnna. Already told you about her. But I have a picture of her on Halloween!

I'll post it......but it might end up at the top of the post!?

Anyway, I will post soon. I have a week off.........LOVE them holidays!

Thanksgiving is near!

I really enjoy Thanksgiving! And the fact that is finally almost here, is SO awesome!!!!!! Right?! LOL! I don't know exactly why I like it so much, maybe cathing up with some family members, all the great food, and the relaxing........Ah, so many great things about it! And Christmas, it just as amazing!!!! Don't ya just love all these holidays?!!! ;-)
Anyway, did you see the new changes to my blog? I changed it up a little to look a little bit like Thanksgiving/the colors of this holiday. I love the picture I found.......the turkey looks G-R-E-A-T!!!!!!! What do you think?
Well, still busy as ever. And Halloween has just passed and it was Jehnna's first. She LOVED it!! I took some pictures, and will post them this weekend.
So, come back and see those.
In the meantime, have a great night and I'll post soon.

Whirlwind of a Month!

That is really what it's been! I mean, I've really been BUSY. That's about all I can explain to all of you. So sorry that I haven't been updating as much as used to. As you all should know by now, I'm a 4th grade teacher and have three children. One 4-month old in the mix. So, it's been pretty busy w/ her. And making sure Britt is ready for her football games at her school. AND grading papers at school and, okay, you get the point, right? ;-)
I really need a vacay soon. But just have to wait a few more weeks for Thanksgiving!!!! Can't wait for that! Speaking of 'school holidays', we're off Election Day next Tuesday! YAY! But I'm going to be spending that day cleaning up the house and going to vote for President. Hmmmm, yes, I have decided who I am voting for. And that being: John McCain. I actually think he's okay, I mean, seriously. But I really like Sarah Palin. She seems so sweet and seems 'fit' for Vice-President. I know that many people do have mixed feelings on her. And the fact that she has not 1, not 2, but FIVE kids?!!! Gee, I thought I was having a hard time raising three, but five? God bless her! LOL. I couldn't deal with way! Three is enough for me.
Anyway, I just wanted to send you all a 'quick' update on me. I'm going to try to post pictures of Jehn soon. But give me some time, okay? Maybe I won't be too busy...............yeah, psssh, right. Ha ha!
Have a great night and I'll post sometime soon!!

Picture time!!

I finally got around to posting some new pictures of little Jehnna!!!! Aren't ya just happy I did so? LOL ;-)
Some of these are kinda a month old, and some are just a few weeks old. But OMGosh, she looks different than when I first brought her home. It's just amazing!!! Well, take a look and let me know what you think. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Have I been's just been crazy!!!!!! Between going to meetings, picking up Jehn at my mom's or Mark's moms, picking up Britt from dance practice, going to get Matt from football practice, grading school papers.......I mean serioulsy, I could go on! But I'll stop there, for your sake!!! ;-)
Well, I do promise that I WILL post some pictures of Jehnna, maybe this weekend?! I've been getting some new pictures of her taken and putting them all together on my laptop, for you all to see them!!! OMGosh, I swear, she's getting sooo big! She's already three months. Wow, right??!!!
I really wish I could stay home with her and take off of work, but I can't. And believe me, I would sooooo rather be home with my baby and not have to put 'up' with 4th graders all day, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week! Ha ha!
But I gotta tell ya, I'm SO happy it's Fall!!!!!! I LOVE Fall and Winter. Love the cold, and turning back on my ovens and drinking hot chocolate! Can't go wrong there, it's way better than being 'hot' and drinking water and drinks to cool 'off'!!! Right?
Well, I'm going to get off now! Gonna go help give Jehn a bath. And I'll be back soon to post pictures!!!
Post soon....

Can you say 'Busy'?!

Hmmm.........what's the word that I can use for my week..........oh, yeah, BUSY!!!!!!!!!! Wow, between getting tests ready, study guides, and meetings.....its been waaaaay crazy! And on top of everything, taking care of Jehn. Poor thing, she's been sick with a little cold. :-(
Mark took her to the doctor yesterday and everything went well with that. Was surprised that the doctor didn't give her a shot. Thought she was needed for one, but guess not. Oh well. She wouldn't have liked that anyway LOL. But who knows, she might take it well. Wasn't with her when they gave her first shots in the hospital, so I have NO idea! From what I've heard, she hasn't really enjoyed it. But what baby doesn't?! Anyway, just hoping that she gets well soon. Really hate to leave her home while she's not well. It breaks my heart.
Other than that, been helping Matt with some of his homework. He's been going 'crazy' because he's doing something in his math class that he doesn't enjoy, nor like. But me, a teacher, will be helping him! Now see, that's one good thing about having a mom that's a techer.............they can help you and help you understand. Right?! But on the other hand, they don't really like having a mom as a teacher. LOL oh well, they'll get over it. But it's also great because sometimes students need a tutor, and well, since I'm a teacher, my kids don't need it. So, there's lots of 'pro's and con's'. Some good, some not-so-good. Ha ha!
Anyway, I am planning on starting to re-do my garden this weekend. OMGosh, don't even wanna start on saying how bad it looks right now. This summer I haven't really been able to 'work' on it because of me having a baby and just been way too busy. So I just put if off. But Saturday, I'm going to work on that. Mom might come over to help........which she LOVES gardening, so that will work out good. And it'll be good to spend some time w/ her.
Let's just say, Britt probably won't want to do it with us. Ha, she seems to think she's too cool. Yeah, okay Britt.......LOL
Well I need to get my things all together for tomorrow. Guess what?!!! FRIDAY TOMORROW!!!! Yay!! Can't wait.
LOL Have a great night and a wonderful Friday!
Post you all soon.

So far, so good..

Okay, so as you all know, the students here started Tuesday! They all walked into the class, gave me the suppiles that needed to be turned 'in', and were actually a REALLY good class!!!! I mean, it's seriously awesome! Last year, had a class with 19 kids.....and most of them were good students. But ya know, you're gonna have them bad ones. LOL and I happened to have at least FIVE of them.......too much, right??! I can handle at least 2-3. But five?! I don't how I did it, but I did! Thankfully!!!!! Anyway, have 4 students that I had last year with me again. And out of those four, only 1 bad one! Boy, did that turn out good. And I know I may be sounding like a mean teacher, but honsetly, it's a lot to deal with the 'bad' students.....especially five, like I had last school year. And the new students, are good students. Well, okay, right now they are anyway. Have to wait and see about next week.............they might be fooling me right now. Hope they're not, this happens a few years. But hey, maybe this year will be a blessing!!!! LOL well, I can wish, right?!
Britt and Matt started on Tuesday as well. Okay, now this is odd, Britt LOVES school, and Matt, well he doesn't like it. But now, he loves it. Must be because his new teachers. He likes them...very nice he says. Yeah, well.....wait just a little into the year and he'll be wishing it was summer again. Ha ha! He changes his mind.....a lot!
Jehnna is doing well.....went to Mark's mom today. Ahhhhh, Mandy is so sweet. (That is Mark's mom, BTW). She made sure to do everything I told her to do with Jehn. AND some more that she didn't have to do. And she doesn't want to be paid, but I WILL pay her. No doubt about it. She's like my 2nd mom........soooo sweet. So, I'm glad Mark has a great mother like her.
And she LOVES babysitting, so that's good.
I'm trying to deal with things around the cleaning. We just finished eating dinner and now, have to clean 'up' our messses. Oh what joy? LOL Maybe I should hire a wait, toooo much money. Oh forget it....probably wouldn't like their way of cleaning anyway.
Anyway, gotta go and gets things together for tomorrow. TGIF!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!! See???? I told ya I was happy for Fridays during school years. Ha!
Have a great night and I'll post soon/later.
