Strawberry Patch and a “awesome” from Frank

Boy! Am I tired.  Today I decided to get up extra early and do some extra home chore. I have decided I will not  continuing the apartment therapy because I have 4 small children  and it just isn’t working out.  I literally  have to clean EVERY DAY and do the Same things. Anyway My schedule is coming along and this it fine. After dropping the big kids off to school, I took the little kids out in the backyard to find strawberries. I was so happy to find that there were 6 BIG Strawberries almost ready to be picked. I give it another few days, before they are fully ripe but they were so nice I had to record it. take a look!



Also Frankie was should a gentleman this morning and told me I was “awesome” now being that my son is the no affection guy “ I’m to cool to hug mom dude”  I gladly took him calling me “awesome” in a song.  Oh and the kids didn’t argue once in the car Some one please  Pinch me! Smile

Morning In the Graceful Helper House

Good Morning! This morning is to say the least Eventful.. I haven’t wrote in this blog in over a year. And in my absents we have Move into our  new home and have  Had our 4th child. Our home is a nice size house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathroom, But for 20014 I want to do some changes for our home I didn’t really like the color  that they paint the home but I use thing they want to appeal to everyone  but it’s mean now and I can wait to paint my wall and bead board everything. I Love Coastal Cottage home that that is the style I am going after.  I want my home to be stylish yet confortable. I want my family to be able to LIVE in the home and now be afraid to sit down and worry if they had mess things up. I don’t want a stuff home. We do you think  about using these colors?
