Eliza is coloring

Eliza has found a new passion of coloring. She colors all day and wants to sleep with her new pictures. She asks if she can keep coloring no matter where we go. She is getting quite good and I love that she is concentrating and focusing on coloring. Here are just a few that we have put up.

One day she was being really quite so I went to see what she was working on and she fell asleep while she was coloring. I thought it was so cute.

Just pictures

These are from a photo shoot with my sister in Boise.

The kids love to go "real bowling" (opposed to bowling on the Wii) at least they know the difference right?

I have realized lately that I am a huge multi-tasker, like most mothers are, but now I have realized that if I am not doing at least 2 things at one time then I am falling behind. So right now I am blogging, bathing the kids, washing the dishes, talking to my mom, watching "biggest loser" and holding Carter.

Single mother of 3

I really should be blogging way more so that I won't forget this time of my life, but my life has been quite full. One thing that David and I have tried to do in our marriage is that if one parents can't give a 100% to helping, loving, keeping the house running, FHE, cleaning, disciplining, and sleeping then the other spouse would help. That is the beauty of marriage. I have greatly missed my other half. It is hard to always give the 100% everyday. With David gone for 4 months, I have tried to keep up on everything but I can't. I have a wonderful support system of my mother-in-law, mother and brother that have all supported me in one way or another. My mom comes up every couple of weeks just to give me a little break, let me sleep in and I don't have to do the dishes and laundry every day. My mother-in-law have taken the kids while I coach track and she truly loves them. Clint and his family have been so great to take the kids so I can at least run to the grocery store alone without having a break down. It has been tough on the kids to not have their papa around. They talk about him and pray for him but they don't quite understand that it is going to be a long time for him to be gone. They save things for papa like a cookie from a friend's or a fruit snack. It is sad to explain to them that he won't be around for a while longer. Fenton has had a difficult time. He has really felt a loss but doesn't know what to do about it. He kisses me more and snuggles more and he doesn't sleep as well. Eliza just misses playing with her papa. We have less than 3 months left to be apart then he will be home for 6 weeks. I have a new appriciation for single mothers and also a new dependency on the Lord for help daily.
