As of today I have a plate full. Staying busy is good for the soul. Not too busy though, you have to find a good balance of calmness and chaos. It's hard to do so but I feel it is so important to keep challenging yourself. With that said I am taking this little boy to tumbling twice a week

( It was pajama day )

 Working out 4 days a week. Helping a friend with a wedding. Hosting dinner every tuesday nights with friends (sometimes on the weekend as well) Church and family visiting on sundays. Reading and trying to understand the bible. Last but not least trying to find time to spend with Dustin WITH OUT these lovely distractions.

 What about you, whats your balance of calm and chaos?

I never used to be the type of girl that dressed up, wore jewlery or high heels. I wore just enough make up to look alive. The older I get the more I apreciate feeling like a woman. It can be so hard to care for myself when my life is consumed with two little ones ( and rightfully so!) They deserve a good life! Every child does! I honestly don't care how other people perceive me when I go to the grocery store in my pj's or go to the aqerium with my hair thrown in a messy ass bun. But for myself, and myself only (maybe for Dustin too) I am going to start fixing my hair and puting effort into the clothes I wear and maybe even wearing some ear rings or a fancy pair of shoes with my outfit. Doesn't it make you feel better when you get all dressed up? Plus it would be nice when my kiddos look back on pictures of their life they might, JUST MIGHT be proud to show off how good their mama looked "back then" HA! Instead of fingering through picture after picture wondering where I am. Granted I take most of the pictures but when Dusty takes them I have a really hard time deleting every single one of me. Not trying to be conseeded I just want to be proud of how I look. I want to be thankful for the beauty God has given me. So this is to me feeling more womanly! Goodbye messy ass bun!

Let's try this again

I'm going to go at it again. Not for anyone but myself, friends and family that would like to stay caught up with this household. I am crazy busy at home with my boys (counting the husband I have 3 ) but I DO make it a point to do things for myself. Happy mamas make happy babies, am I right? So a lot has changed since my last post. Entered in the world...Elijah Michael Kloeker 7-22-2011

Since then Eli has grown to be a big ball of beautiful chunkiness

and little Conner? well he's not so little anymore. He has grown to be a beautiful soul as well. Blonde curly hair with big blue eyes. He is going through a bit of a time right now. Some might call it terrible two's? I like to call it he is trying to find himself  stage. 

Precious arn't they...

These two wouldn't be here if it wasn't for these two.....

Yours truely and the Hubby a month ago enjoying somewhat of a warm front in the middle of the winter here in Kentucky.

Dustin and Conner picking our christmas tree for a 2011 Jesus birthday. o yeah!

So there we are. An update on the fam diddly amily! If this is your first time visiting read HERE it's not fully updated but a good idea where I'm coming from. I look forward to blogging once again. The challenge now is to keep up. trying to keep up is what I do!

You wouldn't know he is a Mama's boy

Conner is a mama's boy for now. I am home all day everyday with him so it is inevitable he is going to be a mama's boy.... right?  You wouldn't know that looking at this picture. He is giving all his lovins to Daddy! He is as happy as can be just hanging out with him. I guess I let this one slide.

Nature Fights Back.... and Wins

It's always said that a picture can tell a story. This one may look like an ordinary picture to any outsider, even boring, but to me it tells me two stories. These chickens and rooster are few of many we have here on the farm and although their fresh eggs are yummy, these little birds are a bit of a pain in the butt. They leave little surprises EVERYWHERE. Call me crazy but I swear they do their business on the walkway on purpose. But a new habbit they have come to enjoy is to make their way into the back yard just at the moment I put the little boy down for a nap and chuckle and COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO! I then have to run outside and chase them off with the broom before they wake him.

This picture also reminds me at the time a year ago today I was awful sick from the pregnancy. Morning sickness, afternoon sickness, night sickness the whole nine yards. Granted I didnt feel up to working in the garden last year, this year it shows. Where there were once beautiful lillies, hostas, and wood chip mulch there is now different families of weeds overtaking, drawling in the bugs, which (and I get to my point now) drawls in the chickens! I guess you have to give a little to get a little. In this case for exchange for the eggs they get their kicks by pissing me off everyday. Got to love them!

It is the little things about your baby that you want to remember in detail, when he is all grown up and no longer wants to cuddle with mamma. Every day as I fall more and more in love with him. I try so hard to capture everything, because I know how fast time flys. When years pass by and I look at a picture like I am sure I will do with these two I will remember very easily the stage where he spit bubbles all the time, or those chunky little hands that reached for my fingers when I fed him.

On The Farm

Right now is calfing season. That's when all the mama cows are going to have their babys, it last about a month. It is definatly my favorite time on the farm. This little guy pictured above is only hours old. When they first get up on their feet they bounce and kick around as if to say "look at me look at me!" They have fun chasing our hound dog around and running him off. The most interesting thing to me is that the mama cows are so protective of these little babys. They are normaly a little shy any other day, but whenever we have to tag the new babys and check to see if they are a girl or boy they stay right by their side and carry on a big fuss. Sometimes they get ballsy and like to head but you (this is why I stay my distance most of the time) I have a huge respect for such a large animal ecspecialy when protecting their little baby. I have to say sometimes I feel like headbutting people that are tossing my little guy around like he is a little puppy or something. We experienced a lot of this this past holiday weekend. For the most part he loves all the attention but can get overstimulated easily, thats when he wants his momma. Maybe we are more like animals than we think?
