Pumpkin Time!

Alright all ready!

We got on our coats and finally after an hour of trying we headed out the door... for the pumpkin patch.
The last time we attempted this was two years before.
At least this time it wasn't raining.

Man you'd think there would at the very least be a few good big pumpkins. Not a chance. All we could find were molded, had holes or trampled already. It was gross.
Not really the experience we were after.

This what I find a lot.
The "expectation" of something...
This is some thing I am desperately trying to alter about my self, my personality. My flaw. One of them...

Ever since becoming a wife, a Mother I really had this idea imprinted in my head of how things were suppose to be.
I blame this on T.V lol!!
We all do it. But I over the years have been over whelmed by it. I try to obtain that "prefect experience" as if there were such a thing. Setting my self up for an unhappy disaster.
This time though, I went with it. There was NOT the perfect pumpkin... There were a lot of gourds...
So we took the best of what we could find and left.
The kids had fun. They got muddy, ran, jumped in puddles. It was a huge success.

So by relinquishing the silly need for expectations met... they were.

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas
Born March 29th 2006 He's my Master Negotiator and Helper
This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

My Big & Naughty Nathaniel Jacob

My Big & Naughty Nathaniel Jacob
Born November 21st 2007 He's my Determined Problem Solver
This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

My sweet baby Christian Michael

My sweet baby Christian Michael
Born September 10th 2009 He is my Big Snuggler
This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
