My Six Guys and my One little Miss

Everyone always says I don't know how you do it! When talking about me running a daycare.I SO love my little guys and little miss! Yes it can be very stressful at times for sure! They also are so fascinating, funny, and have the best imaginations ever! Yes I do want to scream at the top of my lungs sometimes, but also they make me laugh much much more. Just some random funny things they say. He says " I'm pooping" I say lets go on the potty like a BIG BOY! He says " No I'm a small boy "
One brings a toy airplane from home He says " My peeka ( his aunt that he calls peeka cuz she always played peeka boo with him) got me this at the washing machine for cars" ( Car Wash)
another little guy I say oh you should tell your mom that! He says " No my Daddy ! My Mommy is sleeping" ( His Mommy just had his baby brother so Daddy brings him in the mornings while Mommy is still sleeping. So I guess he thinks in his mind she is sleeping all day! I'm sure she wished that was true!
Another ,He says " Take my shirt off over my noggin my head ! Points at his head my noggin.
or Miss Risa I love you infinity! When they point at green and call it Hulk or at yellow and call it bumble bee! Scream when the timer beeps dinners ready! Even if its because its on for a time out. I could go on and on!
In March I got the new baby brother, I forgot how hard baby's are! WOW! Thank goodness my favorite guy of all has been home to help me! That would be Ted, the little gang love him so much they follow him every where! If it wasn't for him I really don't know how I would have survived the new addition to my day!What are we going to do when he starts his new job?

I think we will all be walking around for a bit not knowing what to do. So I just want to say thank you to Ted for all you do! Thank you to my five little guys and my one little miss for making my days full of fun and adventure. I can never say I have a boring day!
I love ya all! Miss Risa

HOME ,Where your story begins

I grew up in the same house tell I was eighteen until I got married. Growing up I always thought how awesome it would be if we could move and go somewhere new exciting and different! Then I got married yeah I get to do something new exciting and different! We went on our honeymoon and I got homesick! Ha ! I missed my home and my family so much. Then when Jordan and Mason where 18months we packed up and moved to Tucson yeah an exciting and different change! Not even a week into living there I called my Mom and Dad and said can I please come stay with you for awhile , missed them again ! Ha! Through out my young years in Tucson I think I went back to visit more then I stayed home. We finally bought our first home only to live in it for two years then we were going to sell. We stayed in that cozy home for eleven years, Lindsey joined our family in this home. Then we moved to my dreammmmm HOME! I so loved this home! I so loved my happy family in our happy house. Sometime happy turns into something else and family gets broken. Even thou things were not the same we kept going in our happy dream home, until momma started trying way to hard to keep this home when it was only Lindsey and momma living in it. Everything I earned went into keeping this dreammmmm HOME, it wasn't so dreamy anymore! So I made a long ,sad,hard but good decision to give it up. Such weight lifted off my shoulders. During all this time I met a wonderful man who makes me so happy! So for a new Chapter in my story of homes we are living in this fixer upper in the ghetto hows that for something different and exciting? Let me tell you its been a year in this little house in the ghetto with lots and lots of new fun adventures!

We have gutted it and are slowly making it our cozy new home with new story's to build!

The before pictures are taken when a bunch of 19 & 21 yr olds lived here yikes very scary stuff! BEFORE

Bring on March!

February was not so fun! Starting with Lindsey bruising her foot and not being able to go to school for two day! Not a fun thing I tell you, she is not a good patient. I get her back to school and that very day when I'm feeling oh so happy, Ted comes home with yucky yucky news. The company he works for called them all in for a meeting at 3:00 pm to say they are shutting their doors everyone lost their jobs! Such nice people to know this and still have them work the whole week with some overtime I might add! (he didn't get paid for that weeki Imight add!!!)Yucky yucky! So we brave that and keep on trucking saying all will get better we just know it! Then the next weekend Lindsey breaks her toe! what the heck I say!? Another day without going to school! Yucky yucky!!!! Then she starts getting better and wouldn't ya know it, Ted falls into a pond (very funny story I might add : ) ) and hurts his foot and is just being able to walk normal. So I am oh so hoping that March will bring us much happiness and good things!

Describe your latest ....
Ihave always loved words. Remember when in school you would take your name or a word and make other words out of the letters? I loved doing that and still do. One of my favorite gifts to make are little books with words to describe each person. Everyone loves to hear or read something about them right? I know I do! : )

Something else I absolutely LOVE are letters. You could say obsessed with them. In my scrap booking supplies I have all kinds of letters, chip board, metal, stickers, stamps in all shapes and colors I love font!

They make me sooooo happy!
I think its because my dad was a sign painter. I loved to watch him work. He would get out his blue grease pencil laying it out first, then he would get out the paint and brush to complete his sign. He made it look so easy and beautiful! I can still smell the paint. I was always amazed at is work. ( I love you dad and miss you! )
So of course this new craze of having signs , words or letters for home decor was a must for my home. Love it!
My latest obsession is letters and words that I decoupage. Once I get started making one I can't stop until it is complete. I'm totally obsessed and hooked!

What is your obsession?

Read Nienie tonight how could I ever feel sad for myself? Really such a wonderful person so strong!

I am not a writer! Have no clue how to use proper gramar ,spell,punctuate and all the correct hoopla of writing! My mother and my sister Jeanette are the writers in the family, also by my surprise so is Lynn ! I always knew he was a great story teller, but never knew he could do it on paper! Until he started writing on Cameos blog. She also is a great writer I might add ! I do love to tell a story,just not writing it down. With an audience I think I can tell a great story with motions and facials and really catch your attention. Sadly blogging, journals all have to do with writing. Which I'm not the greatest at.Problem is I really love to talk but what I do for a living keeps me from talking to adults most of the time. I want to share to talk to my fellow adults! So I am humbling myself and I'm going to journal what I think what happens to me everyday for me ! Well not everyday but I am going to do this! I was taught that we must journal ! This will be my challenge to myself this year!My life really is a crazy story one after another for sure so here I go! Stay tuned! (Larisa)

DANG IT ! This picture thing is making me CRAZY!
Why the heck did my post get all spread out like that?
It didn't look like that when I previewed it! This Is reminding me why i don't blog!

I'm so Lucky!
Every school morning Lindsey and I get up and head out for our journey to the bus stop.
When we moved into our new home we decided to let Lindsey stay at her same school district she has been going to sense kindergarten.That means we have to get up early early to adventure
into the dark and drive 20 min. to catch the bus. She loves her school and her friends so much it is worth it! Plus I get to go in my PJ's and I don't even have to comb my hair if I don't want to,which is almost always! : ) On these drives back and fourth to and from school I get to have some great conversations with her.Well she does most of the conversing I listen. That girl can talk your hear off let me tell you! I love my time with her.

Another bonus taking Lindsey to the bus is I meet one of my parents over there to pick him up. He is my sweetie pie Dylan. Let me say there is nothing better then when I'm waiting for him to get out of his car, so excited to see me! laughing and running to me saying Risa! Risa! he jumps up into my arms and hugs and kisses me! I am so lucky to not only have my own children that love me, but to have all my extra daycare children love me as well!

So here is to a New Year! 2010

I'm a biggggg blogger fan. I read every ones blogs every day for inspiration most of all my little sister Jeanette's( Bliss) makes me sooo happy! Problem is that I just don't like to write on mine so much!( As in not at all!) A good friend of mine Traci (aka) Sky : ) got me hooked on facebook much easier to just say a few words when I'm feeling them instead of a whole lot of words. Then wouldn't ya know it Sky gets a Blog! Then I read my sisters and she gets me hooked on another blog (full house) love it! I think to myself i can at least write a sentence on here and post pictures!

I do it on face book I can do it here. So that's what I'm going to do dang it!

P.S. Let's see if it lasts :)
