Hey Hey so this Mama is doing the preggo happy dance. I am being induced tomorrow!! We finally get to meet our precious baby girl!! I have so much excitement going on and a little nervous but mostly excited and anxious. We go to the hospital at 5:30 am to be check in. So sometime tomorrow Areaunna Lynea will make her entrance into this world. Our Families could’t be more excited. Xavier is staying with my sister. He is so excited to be a big brother finally and meet his sissy. I told him next time he sees me sissy won’t be in my belly anymore. His eyes got so big and he smiled the biggest smile.

I do apologize for the lack of my blogs. Things have been oh so very crazy. But I have missed each of you amazing awesome people! My birthday was yesterday so having baby girl is a great gift!!!

My son turned 4 Feb. 1st. so we had a SUPER HERO PARTY at the park for him. He also got to ride his first Horse/pony. Was even brought to our house by a awesome friend.

Time for Thanks

Standard

So I keep forgetting to post this. Things are quite hectic with us lately. But not going into that. This is a time to be positive and thankful.
I want my son to know the reason for the holidays, that it isn’t about gifts and being greedy. One way we are doing this is a family tradition of ours. “Our Thankful Tree.”
Now this is something really simple but also fun for all of us. And I must say it makes for a great decoration.
We went walking in the woods and got a small tree branch. We then collected rocks as well. Which is a ton of fun for my son He for some reason has a a fascination with rocks. No idea why or where it came from. He is always collecting them and bringing them inside. He picked up rocks no matter where we are at.
Then we spray painted the tree silver. That is what color Xavier wanted. We got one of our large Mason jars and placed the rocks & also added some green marbles in it. I still need to get some pretty ribbon to tie around the jar. 🙂 We cut put some leaves and each day we each add a leaf that had something we are thankful for on it. Last I hot glue the leaves on the branches.
I put our 2 white mini pumpkins around it and our small pumpkin we used in pictures.
Slowly decorating for the fall seasons.

Here are the pictures. What do ya’ll think? What are you thankful for?  What are your fall decorations? Do you have any family traditions?

Also I am gonna share my Day 5 what I am thankful for. I am grateful for my amazing man! This is what I got to wake up too. He works evenings &over nights so he gets home at like 330-530am. The fact that he stopped when I know he is exhausted means even more. I am so blessed & grateful for him. Can’t thank God enough for sending him to me & my son. It is a amazing feeling to find someone that loves me & here for me. But to find a man that is here for my son and loves him probably more than he loves me is priceless. There are so words. Now we have a baby girl on the way of our own & I couldn’t be happier.  We have literally been through hell in our relationship yet somehow we always make it work. He is patient to with me. He supports us in every way. And so much more I could go on & on. I love him and am glad he is my best friend and my other half. ♡ We got something that rare and special. From all we have been through in our past and since being in each others lives we are able to appreciate our love and connection that much more. 🙂

Well I hope you have a great day! 🙂
Sending ✌Peace, 💜Love, & 😄Happiness to all of you! God Bless!

Did you get a trick or a treat?

Standard

Hello There! I feel like Dorthy. Oh you know from Wizard of Oz. I went to bed at my home in Florida. However I seem to woke up in a FREEZING state. Hmm..what happened to my warm Florida weather. Oh that is right Fall is here. TIme for warm fires, hot coco, hoodies, & boots. But seriously, we have freezing warning tonight.

Well how was everyone’s halloween? My day was horrible. But I won’t hash that out on here. As you know I live my like with Positivity. The good part is that after work and that horrible day I got to come home to a amazing man and we got to take Xavier trick or treating. My outfit didnt work since my pregnant belly is Popping out finally. But I did do my Sugar Skull Make up. My son was his favorite character, BATMAN! He was also batman last year. Which he wore the costume twice. Hey SAVED me some money. Plus last year my dad had to go to like 5 stores from My town to almost 2 hours over to find the Batman costume my son wanted. Because he said it had to be the one with muscles. So getting 2 years of wear and play out of it is perfectly fine with me.

This year since my son is 3 he was all excited to go trick or treating. At each house those he would use his manners, which makes for a proud mama. But he also would turn and ask us if we were going to get more. Each time we would respond with yes lets go to the next house. Took 3 blocks before he stopped asking. Priceless!

As you know I am a crafter as well as a hands on mom. The night before halloween. We did some painting and crafts. We made a pumpkin stamp from a potato. We make a Frankenstein, black cat, pumpkins, & a spider & web.

The weeks was full of fun. It was my sisters birthday so I made her a girl camo cake. The boys had their soccer & football games. Those went great! Anthony was picked for all star team. Which only the best players get picked for that team. I am SUPER proud of him. Both boys for their great jobs at their sports. I kept them Saturday night and we had pizza night.. seems to be tradition in our family. We also had a BON FIRE! Sorry I love bon fires. My country girl comes out. Even made smores. I live in the country so it was a stary night with a warm fire & I relaxing next to the fire in my hammock. I was in HEAVEN!

Craft & Play Time Our Crazy Life

Good Day To All You Wonderful People!

First let me say a HUGE thank you for all the new followers and the love ya’ll have given me. It is so amazing! I also have found so many new blogs thanks to you guys!

Okay so I have told you I am live a SUPER CRAZY Busy life. Which is totally incredible in itself. This past weekend went by so fast, it is insane. But it was so packed! We loved every minute. We had a fun time decorating our front door for Halloween. Which I will be showing. So simple too, which as us busy moms know scores points in our books. My boss’ birthday was Wednesday. So Friday I made her chocolate cupcakes with a peppermint buttercream frosting, topped with a York peppermint patty (picture posted below).  Her and I eat the heck out of the York Patties since being I have been pregnant. Also I made football cupcakes for my youngest nephews football game. It was supposed to be the last game of the season but the Eagles kicked butt and WON! So now we are in for the Championships! I made green cupcakes with footballs on top (Pictures posted below). Then we had some errands to run. Got to have a nice lunch with my love just the two of us. That was refreshing. Then we headed over to Turkey Creek for the Pizza Party that was going on for my oldest nephew. They won their soccer game as well that day. My son spotted turtles and was in HEAVEN. He has been asking for a fish and a turtle for Christmas. Seeing the turtles there did nothing but encourage that desire. Xavier alsohad a birthday party and trunk or treating to go to as well. Then there was cleaning and projects around the house we worked on as well. We also made homemade playdough which my son turned into growing goo. Silly boy. It was a ton of fun tho! We got so much going on. I must say I LOVE IT! These are moments of making memories. And moments that you get being a mom. Best Job in the world right 🙂

This coming weekend is trick or treating, another birthday, the boys sports games. My sisters birthday as well. Plus lots of other activities. Which I will share as they happen.

I have started planning my sons 4th Birthday Party. Which is gonna be a BLAST! So we got holidays, road trips, Birthdays, & the birth of our beautiful baby girl coming in just a few weeks to few short months. Best part is I get to experience it all with my amazing son & my amazing man. What more can I ever ask for?

Alright I has a LONG Monday and it is now after midnight so I am gonna leave it here and chat more soon!

Hope you enjoy these pictures as well. Thanks in advance for any love you beautiful people leave me.

Peace, Love, & Happiness,

Nerdy Mama Owl, L. Akin.
