Feeling like writing...

As you can tell, I love to post a lot of pictures. It's hard for me to get pictures of my teenage boys because all of them run from me when they see me with my camera! So for this post I will be writing. Thank you very much to those of you that visit my blog and leave me comments they make my day and let me know people are looking at my blog!

This evening at my house we feature... boys fighting, flaming hot Cheetos smashed in the light tan carpet. "Is that salsa on my couch"? Does any one else have this much fun on Sunday's at home? Okay it's time to get out something to try and keep the peace around here. And you thought you didn't have to do that when they get older? Sometimes I think they are harder to keep calm when they are teenagers! You can't put them in a crib with toys and a book. But wait, I do have a LARGE dog cage :)

It is now November! I love this time of year and reflecting on blessings, family and friends! Yes, even with a house full of teenage boys we have a lot to be grateful for :) Let us all count our many blessings this month and always! I love my family and friends very much! I want you all to know I am thankful for being blessed to have you all a part of my life! You bring sunshine to my soul :)

You are so funny!

I can't really put my two-year-old in a crib either. But he probably is easier to amuse!

Bridget said...

I do love this time of year as well. I feel so, so blessed to have the life I do. Can't wait for Thanksgiving to stuff my face with Turkey and stuffing to celebrate that fact!

I love your thoughts. It is a blessing to be part of a family and noise right. I am grateful for all you shared.

Erin said...

Are flaming hot cheetos any good? I have been too scared to try them.

And yes, I am thankful that it's November too.

I love this time of year two! So now I have ritz crackers ground into my carpet by a certain little 18 month old...sounds like life comes full circle with teenagers. Maybe I should wait a few years to vacuum them all up :)

Tink said...

Made me laugh with the descriptions of food and such on your couch...I was having the same thoughts when I put something into the backseat of our car. Grrr. You are a Q-T and I Love you dearly as my friend! I missed seeing you today!

Jolene said...

You are right about the teenagers - it definitely doesn't get any easier. Sundays just seem to bring it on too! Today it was a nice chess game that turned in to WWE!

The Barnharts said...

wow- i thought the noise would get better but i guess not! :)

Kathy @ Real Mom, Real Life said...

Oh my -- sounds too much like our Sundays!!! Right down to the Salsa on the couch! I have 4 boys and only one is a teenager so far. What am I going to do when they all are? YIKES! Still, wouldn't change it for the world.

Mikki said...

If it isn't cheerios ground into the carpet around here, then it's bananas ground into the carpet. Man, I was hoping things would get easier as we went on.
Sweet post, I love NOvember too. It's a wonderful time of year. And now I have new blog buddies to be grateful for as well. :o)

Rob said...

Yup, that's our life in a nutshell. Isn't it great having teenage boys. :)

Carla said...

Happy Thanksgiving season to you!
With ears to hear (the noise),
eyes to see (the mess makers),
nose to smell (the teenboy smell),
mouth to guide,
and HEART to love 'em anyway!!
(ps. THEY NEVER STOP!!! Thats why you have to get you bluff in on them early:)

Angie said...

I'm still trying to figure out my teenagers too! Life is interesting. My kids roll their eyes every time my camera comes out!

Jillene said...

How sweet! I taught Relief Society yesterday about the same thing....gratitude.

Teri said...

Sounds like loads of fun and something to look forward to? I'm thankful for a friend like you too. Happy FALL!

Andrea said...

Oh man, now I know what I have to look forward to!

I love this time of year, too. There's just so much to be thankful for.

I can deal with the stuff ON the couch....it's everything that I find UNDER the couch that scares me!

Sounds like my house on Sundays-- only with girls. So frustrating when you are trying to keep things together on Sunday.

hmmmm the large dog cage might not be a bad idea lol I don't think it's even considered child abuse if they're it's during the puberty years!

TJ said...

Sounds so much like my house! My carpet was a cream/light tan color. Now it is black and brown polka dot. Between kids, cat, and guys coming in from the garage, I give up!
