Happy Birthday...

Happy Birthday to my hubby. Nate is 27 today and guess what... he has to work. We won't be able to celebrate his birthday till Sunday. He did get a card from me and a card from Alex and Aaron. We also got him a couple of new shirts. He is the hardest person to shop for. I am going to make him his favorite dinner on Sunday. I am making Meatloaf, Green beans, Mash Potatoes and Gravy, and some biscuits. He is not a big fan on sweets.. so I think I am just going to make some cupcakes for him. I did get him a gun for his birthday which he got yesterday.. I will have to take a picture of him with his gun... He loves the gun.

Well thats it for now... I have to finish up some cleaning!!!

I would like to introduce you to.....

The Pull up Gang....

My little sister Heather came over today. She is the second oldest. I am the oldest out of 5 girls (I will talk more about my little sisters in a later post.) Well my boys just loves their Aunt Heather. They have her wrapped around their little fingers. They were playing today and decided that they all should all wear pull ups on their heads. I just had to take a picture of it. My kids always enjoy when Aunt Heather comes to visit. They don't see her a lot because she is working or college.

I just had to share this priceless picture!!!

Happy Late Valentine's Day

I know that is late.. but hey better late then never right....Well on Valentine's Day.. my oldest son had a Valentine's Day party at school. I spent all night making the Valentine box that he wanted.. the toy box off of Toy Story. I think I did a really good job. What do you think..

Here are some pictures of his party!!!

Here is Miss Tammy putting a heart on his straw. They were to suck on the straw to keep the heart on the end. Alex did a good job.. but did have a bit of a hard time at first because he wanted to blow.

Then he had to sit in a circle with Miss Joni and talk about sharing.. which he answered " Sharing is when I let my baby brother play with my toys.. but I don't share all the time.. only when he is being nice to me." Gotta love 5 year old. Then he walked around the group and gave a heart to another student.. he had a lot of fun.. he even wanted to play it when we got home.

Then it was time for them to make their sucker hearts. And of course he choose the blue sucker.. His favorite color is blue. What they did was take a cutout of a heart, put a piece of tape on the back of the sucker then put it on the heart. then added some green leaves on the stick. He was ready to eat it as soon as we got into the car.

Well me sister came with me to help me take care of Aaron. My sister is the only one that Aaron will behave for. As I said in my earlier post.. Aaron has Asperger's Syndrome. He has a very hard time in social places and don't really know how to interact with other people. So to keep him happy my sister Heather came with me and Aaron had a blast playing on her phone.

Well I hope everybody had a great Valentine's Day!!!

I am really starting to dislike my cable company...

Well about a week ago.. they decided to switch our channels around and even didn't bother to send out a notice or even a guide to the channel switch. I am not upset about that what I am upset about is a favorite show. I am a BIG wrestling fan and I have been since I been born. Well tonight on Monday night RAW.. it was in Spanish....what.. why would it be in Spanish on the USA channel. It has never been in Spanish before. So I called my best friend to see if their channel was in Spanish and she told me that hers have a lag. The wrestlers will talk about 5 seconds later.. their words come out. I will be calling the company tomorrow and complaining. I have only missed wrestling 5 times in my whole life.. (well maybe more when I was younger.. but I don't really remember)... I just had to vent because I am missing my RAW!!!!

Guess what I am getting....

A CAR!!!!

We have one car and my hubby works nights so I can't take him to work. Well I needed a car just so I can go places with the kids while he is a work and I dont have to call people to come pick me up. Its not going to be the best car but it will get me where I need too!!! I will add pictures when I get it.

I just had to share my great news!!!

GRRR.... What to do

I have no idea what I am going to do. My husband's birthday is this Friday February 25. He is going to be 27 (he is getting so old..but don't tell him I said that lol). My problem is that I have no idea what to get him. He doesn't need anymore tools or clothes. He is the most hardest guy to shop for. I am thinking about getting him some more stuff for his paintball or some more workout equipment.

I do know that for his birthday dinner.. I am making his favorite. Meatloaf, bake potatoes, biscuits, and green beans. Then me and the boys are going to make him a birthday cake. It will probably just be a simple cake because he really doesn't eat sweets. So what I am thinking is a spice cake with cream cheese frosting. It is really the only kind of cake he will eat.

I just want to say Welcome to my blog!!!

The main reason I am making this blog is because I want to talk about my life,  my kids and husband, my struggle with heart failure, and my live with God!!

My name is Amanda. I am 22 years old. I am a stay at home mom. I have 2 wonderful boys and a great husband. Me and my hubby Nate have been together for almost 7 years and been married for almost 5 years. February 26 2009.. I got dignoised with heart failure so they gave me medicine to help my heart.. well it wasnt working and when I went to see my cardiologist found out that I was very close of having a cardic arrest. On June 25 2009.. I had emergancy surgery to get a pacemaker in. I got really depressed after surgery because I was afraid that I wasnt going to see my children grow up. I am no longer depressed and I live everyday to the fullest. I plan on going to college soon to become a photographer. I really havent been doing my photography because I have just been so busy. But I do plan on getting my profoilio done this summer. Here is a picture of me....

My husband Nate is one of the most greatest guys in this world. We do have our problems. When we first met he just got dignoised with Bipolor. He have been taking his medicines but it got alot worse after his dad passed away from cancer. He still strugles with depression when it get close to his dad's death date which is December 18, 2008. Nate was very close to his dad. Me and the kids really never get to see him. He works as a welder for Valley. He makes irrigation pipes. He works from 4:45 p.m to 3:15 a.m. then when he comes home he can't sleep right away and by the time he actually gets to sleep its about 6:00 a.m and so he sleeps all day. The only time we see him is on his day off and that is only on Sunday. My husband was adopted when he was 2 days old. He biological mother was 19 and was homeless and knew that she couldnt take care of him. My husband is a full blooded Native Amercian and his bilogical family lives in Canada. We did find his bilogical family but he mother passed away before we found them. We are planning on going up to Canada to meet his family soon. Here is my husband....

My oldest is Alexander. He is 5 years old. He was born October 20, 2005. He is the smartest 5 year old that I have ever met. He loves about everything. He is always ready to learn. He loves to watch the History Channel. He can tell you almost everything about pirates. When he grows up he wants to be a sniper in the military. He is in Preschool and cant wait till he is Kindergarten. He is just always ready to learn. He has one of the most awesome imagantions ever. I love him to pieces.. Here is my little man...

My youngest son is Aaron. He is 3 years old. He was born January 16, 2008. He almost didnt make it. His cord was wrapped around his neck so tight that he lost oxygen to his brain. I was sure that I was going to lose him. He just got dignoised with Asperger's Symdrome. I will probably do a post about Aspergers in a later post. He is 3 years old and says about 10 words. He is a little behind.. but he keeps up with his big brother. He loves Spongebob and Micky Mouse. He is a mama's boy and doesnt like anybody else touching me. I love him to pieces too.. Here is my baby boy...

Well here is my little family... I love my family!!!
