My Little Brother came to visit

My little Bro came to visit me and was here for a week. We had so much fun and I am sad the week is over and he had to return home. We took him shooting and he had a blast. He is even thinking about moving here which would be amazing. Right now he is in Mississippi and I am in Arizona. That is 1400 miles away. The kids had a blast and they love their Uncle so very much. They need family around them. Right now we live so far away from all our family that it gets pretty lonely at times not having any of them here. I am hopping that is he moves here that my Mom and Dad will be right behind him. That would be a dream come true. I did not get anything done last week cas we were just having way to much fun. I did not get any new items listed to my shop. I did not get any house cleaning done. I did not get the laundry done. But that is ok because we had a lot of fun. Now that he is gone home I am getting things back to normal around here. I got 5 new survival bracelets listed in my shop over at ArtFire. If you would like to pop over and check them out you can HERE. Also if you do not know what a survival bracelet is and how it can be used you can read all about it HERE. I wanted to leave you today with a view of my world here in Tucson, Arizona. I hope you enjoy it. :)





All photos were taken by me here in Tucson. I hope you enjoy them.

I Hate Spam!

I am not sure why but as of late I have been getting more and more spam to my blog. I for one hate spam! That is why I have a filter in place that all comments posted must be approved first before they will show on my blog. I am sure most blogs have started using this kind of monitoring. If not I am sure they will before long. I am not at all sure why people feel the need to spam blogs like they do. Do they really think I am going to post that crap? I hope they would figure out that I have not and will never approve a comment that is spam. Some try to get away with putting some generic I like your post check out these bla bla bla...... That does not work. I read every post made to my blog and I am not going to approve that crap.

I do love my readers and every comment that is left by my readers I greatly cherish and thank you for the time you took to post me a comment. Those comments will always be approved as soon as I see them. I may not post everyday but I do check my blog every day for comments and communication.

Until Next Time :)

Happy Easter

I wanted to tell everyone happy Easter. Today was a lot of fun. We started off the day with the kids getting their Easter baskets. They had so much fun with all their goodies. Then my Son got to try out his new compound bow with his Dad. Emily got to watch while she played with her new duck and books. Then it was time for the Easter egg hunt. Emily caught on right away. I showed her how to find one egg then she was off and running. She called them eggies! So adorable. Then my hubby had to go to work. We had a great day. I hope everyone had a wonderful day today and got to spend quality time with family. Now I would like to share a few pictures with you.

The Joys of Sleepless Nights

There are lots of people in this world that think there way is always the right way. But to be perfectly honest there is no right way of doing things. There is no right way to parent. Now do not get me wrong there are wrong ways. But I am not going to be talking about child abuse in this post. I want to talk about sleeping issues. No child is the same, every child is different. One way might work for one Mom and will not work for another. Like the issue of letting a child cry it out. Now that may be great for some it is NOT an all inclusive method. My hubby thinks cry it out is a good way to sleep train. I on the other hand feel differently. I do not like this method. I feel if my child wakes from sleep due to a night terror I will not let my baby think that she is all alone in the dark with her fears. I will go to her. I will cuddle her and tell her everything is ok. Yes I may be sleep deprived but she will always know I am there for her no matter what. I will be that Mom that has bags under her eyes if that is what it takes to reassure my baby girl that she is not alone in her times of need. Others may say I am teaching her not to sleep. That is ok. The Cry it Out method might work for some but not for me and my baby. My sweet girl will scream for hours and will not give up. She will make herself sick from crying and not give up. That tells me something is wrong and she needs me and I will be there for her. Some babies will cry for 10 to 20 minutes and then lay down and go to sleep others will not. It is ok to share what works for you but do not get offended if a Mother tells you thank you but that is not the right fit for them. Like I said just because it works for one child does not mean it will work for every child. Yes there are many nights where I am frustrated from lack of sleep. But I do think about this, there will come a time when she does not need me. There will come a time when she does not want to cuddle and for me I want to treasure every minute of this time when she needs and wants me to be with her.



Until Next Time:

What has been up?

I have been working on my online shop over at ArtFire a lot lately. So I have not had any time to blog and I apologize for that. It has been a long road as far as getting good pictures. I am so glad I am figuring out my new camera. It is a Nikon and it is nice. I am able to get some really great colorful shots of the kids and my items for my shop as well. You can check out my jewelry blog for all the great new items there. I wanted to share with you a fun picture of my baby girl today :)
