Pizza, Pizza, Pizza!

This reminds me so much of myself at a young age. Tonight as I was cleaning the kitchen after supper. I was singing, as I worked. Which is not uncommon in this house. You would think I was one of the seven dawrfs sometimes. Anyway, I'm sure some of you are familiar with this hymn.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Let all heaven & Earth proclaim
Kings & Kingdoms will all pass away
But there is something about that name
Now, don't hold me to these being the correct words. My great- grandmother tought me most of the hymns I know. Well, she was in the early stages of Alzheimer's at the time. So let's just say the words aren't always in the right order... but that is another blog!
Well, I am just singing away. Here comes Trenten running into the kitchen singing:
Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
Kings & kingdoms
Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
Let's just say I'll be praying that he comes to Love Jesus as much as Pizza!
It gave Adam & I a good laugh, hope it will you too!
Until Next Time,

My latest Bible Journey...

For those of you who do not know, about a month ago I started back to College to finish my Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. I made a commitment the week classes started, that no matter how hectic life became I would still read my Bible every night.Which like a lot of Christians I have struggled, and flat out failed at several days over the last few weeks. I thought a great idea to help hold me to my commitment would be to start reading in the book of Job. I have a philosophy I try to live by, to keep me from throwing myself pity parties on the regular basis. My Philosophy is: "No matter how bad you have it in life, there is always someone worst off than you are!" Try to stay with me here, I know that sounds kind of tacky and mean.
This is only one of my many "Philosophies on Life". I am sure as time passes you will be blessed by many more. Please note, that was a joke. So, needless to say I thought with all of the trials and tribulation that Job suffered through in his life, that this would be a great book of the Bible to help through my own trials over the next few months. Here are some thoughts out of the Prayer Journal I have been keeping.
Job 1 20-22
At this Job got up & tore his robe & shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground IN WORSHIP & said: "Naked I came from my mother's womb, & Naked I will depart THE LORD GAVE & THE LORD HAS TAKEN AWAY; MAY THE NAME OF THE LORD BE PRAISED." In all this Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing. (the all CAPS are the part of the verse that struck my heart)
In case you do not know what happened in the verses leading up to this,here is my short & sweet version. Job was a man of God, who had been very blessed in every way really by God. Satan comes to God, and asks to challenge Job's faith in God. Satan believes he can get Job to curse God. So God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but not to kill him. So Satan basically takes everything from Job. His children, livestock, health,and so on.
Verses 20-22 are Job's reaction to this. I was overwhelmed by the way he was able to Worship the Lord immediately after loosing all of his children at once.This being one of my greatest fears(loosing any of my precious children)having this attitude afterward is hard for me to imagine.
This is what I desire for my heart to be like. I want to Praise the Lord in Good times, Bad times, and all of the in between.I know that this only comes from the Lord. I want to challenge all of you to search your hearts, and to desire a Heart like Job's.
Join me next time, when I will discuss how I have applied Job's life to my own over the last several weeks.
Until Next Time,

This is so sad...

Well, I am happy to announce that we are now up & running with internet at home. Hurricane Ike has affected our life in more ways than one, but that is another Blog coming soon! Due to Hurricane Ike Embarq was unable to set up my internet at home until today. I have been in desperate need of internet here at the house since I started my three internet classes. I have been all over the county in the last three weeks bumming off others for their internet. Thank you to all of these people, (you know who you are) for helping me so much.
I can not wait to share about the last three weeks. To say they have been "fun filled" is an understatement! Tonight we started a Marriage Conference at our church. It has been wonderful so far, and we are both really looking forward to tomorrow. I had to turn in some economics homework before midnight tonight, so it has been a mad dash since I came home to get everything done & turned in. Trenten and I did it though! What a great helper he and his "Thomas the Train" are... I think its time we call it a night.
Looking forward to re-joining the Blogger World, if you will still have me.
Until next time,

A Better Week...

I would like to Thank everyone who has been praying for me over the last week. I have been able to tell a huge difference. I am happy to announce that this week is going much better! I would like to Thank my Husband who has offered a lot of encouragement over the last week, and for the Beautiful Roses this morning "For No Reason". I'm sorry that I had a hard time believing that they were really for "Just Because... to brighten my day." That was very sweet, and made not just my day, but the rest of my week. Thanks again to everyone for your prayers.
Until Next Time,

Constant Change...

(Above) Trenten at 9 months old

(Above) Trenten Last weekend swimming at Grandma's

This week I am struggling with something we all know is inevitable. We all want a say in it, but life doesn't always allow us that either. It throws constant battles of adjustment & struggles our way... have you guessed it? That's right Changes. The nothing ever stays the same fact of life. I struggle with the part of balancing ALL the changes in life, all at once.

(Above) Jonah when he was First Born

(Above) Jonah swimming last weekend at Grandma's

As you can see from my pictures I'm struggling with how fast time has gone by with my kids. I keep looking at Jonah, and remembering how it was like yesterday that was Trenten. I look at Trenten and think how tomorrow that will be Jonah. Can I just say, I'm not ready for that! Change is all around us. For example take a look at the last year of our lives.

  1. I'm 5 months pregnant with Baby # 2
  2. Adam and I nearly get divorced
  3. Adam changes from night shift to days to help restore our marriage
  4. Baby Jonah arrives
  5. I cut back to Part Time at work
  6. We sell are nice gas saving car
  7. Adam changes careers
  8. Adam goes back to working nights (but don't worry we're not getting divorced)
  9. Jonah no longer likes coming to work with Mom
  10. I'm going back to school in the Fall to finish my degree in "Business Administration"

God has brought us through so much, and I know he will continue to take me through all the changes that are coming. This past week in my Woman's Bible Study I learned about turning my worries into prayers. I have been praying all week for me to just have Faith that God will provide for us through all these upcoming changes. It had been a great week of feeling like all my burdens had been lifted. Then last night, after a day of Jonah crying non-stop while I tried to get work done, and situations coming my way all day that I don't know what I'm going to do about. My Spirit was kind of broken, and I found myself worrying & frustrated over everything. So, please pray for me. Pray for strength to deal with what is coming my way right now, pray for me to quit worrying over situations and take them to God where they belong.

Until Next Time,

Feelin' Frogy ?

(Above) Cutest Frog Cake Ever!

(Above) For the Cutest Nephew Ever!

(Above) Don't forget the Lilipad Cupcakes!

This is what I did this weekend. It was a lot of fun for everyone, let me tell you! Adam left for work early because I was driving him crazy trying to arrange the shape of the frog perfectly! I just could get it just right... Jonah enjoyed hanging out under the table waiting for the green frosting to hit the floor. He enjoyed eating some, and then crawling through the house & spreading it EVERYWHERE! If I never see green frosting again, it wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit. Trenten struggled with the temptation to eat the little yellow flowers off the lilipad cupcakes... but we all survived! Kaleb loved his frog cake, & it made my day to see how his face lit up when he saw it. Anything for my favorite Nephew!

Until Next Time,

Bloging Difficulties....

To all my blog fans & friends, I'm trying to create a page element that links your blogs to mine... some are not working. So if someone could tell me what to type in to get Keri & Andi's to work I would appreciate it. Also, it's a work in progress like everything else in my life. So if your name is not on there, please don't be offended. Tell me how to put it on there, and I will. Also, where do you people get these cute page lay outs? I'm really sick of the whole dot theme, but I don't have anything else to chose from? Help!!!!
Until Next Time,

The Heart of a Woman...

(Above) Our Kitchen

I came to a realization yesterday as I was cleaning my house... and I felt like I needed to share it with the rest of you. Yes, I was cleaning my house on my day off, which seems to be how I spend my days off these days! The last 2 weeks has been nothing but hectic & stressful around the Estes household. My work has been really demanding, then all the changes that came with Adam's new night job, let's just say really cleaning my house was on the back burner. So yesterday, after 2 weeks worth of just being "Straightened up" my house needed a good "real" cleaning.

I don't know about the rest of you, but the Kitchen is the Heart of our Home. I can deal with the rest of the house being a little messy, but I can not stand to be in my house if the kitchen is not clean. So yesterday I spent a good part of my morning taking my kitchen from a "Straightened Kitchen status" to a "Immaculate Kitchen Status". As I was slaving away, I started thinking about the last 2 weeks and how the Kitchen got like this. I started thinking, "Am I the ONLY one who can wipe down counters around here? Am I the ONLY one that can use a broom & a mop around here? For crying out loud Jonah crawls all over these floors! Am I the ONLY one who thinks about that! If other people would just help a little, I wouldn't have to spend this much time out of my day CLEANING!" (For the Record, the kitchen really wasn't that bad!)I had to stop myself, and take a deeper look. As the Kitchen is the Heart of our home, the gathering place of our family... What has my Heart been like these past couple of weeks? How did it get like this? I've just been keeping it "Straightened up" I haven't really taken the time to clean it up, make it Immaculate again. My heart is what trickles out to the rest of the family. What kind of Gathering Place have I been for my family the last couple of weeks?

I started to see that I had become this unhappy, almost bitter woman over the last month or so. Really since Adam had started his new job. I had become focused on "me" and what inconveniences his new schedule had put on "me"! I wasn't making time for God everyday, because I had all this responsibility to take care of on my own! Cleaning my Kitchen yesterday I realized I'm trying to handle it all on your own! Don't you get it, you stupid girl! You can't do it all on your own, there are not enough hours in the day! You need God, to renew you, give you strength, to keep your "Heart" & attitude in the right place.

After I was finished, it was like God reminded me of all the things my Husband had try to do over the last month or so to help, that just wasn't enough in my eyes at the time. He would do dishes some mornings after I left for work, before he would go to sleep after working all night. He would change laundry loads when he thought of it. He had tried to help, but I was to busy focusing on what I had done. I couldn't see that he was trying.

This weeks Woman's Bible Study by Angela Thomas challenged me. When she talked about "expecting perfection out of everyone, and things being up to your standards". That's exactly what I have been doing with my house. If anyone else walked in, they would think it was clean, and looked nice. I look around and see things that need done, and consider it "Straightened" not "Clean". I learned that I need to be more merciful, and that comes through God and God alone!

I would like to challenge any Woman who is reading this to take a look into the Heart of your Home. Are you trying to keep it "Straightened up" all by yourself? Do you need God to give you a "real cleaning"?

Until next time,

The Beasley Family...

(Above) Picture of Mr. & Mrs. Beasley's 25th Anniversary Cake (Exact replica of their wedding cake) & no Tammy wouldn't let me make it! She wanted me all to herself, not baking in the kitchen all day! Thanks Tammy!
Over our Memorial Day weekend we went to Houston to help my Best Friend Tammy out with her Parents 25th Anniversary Party. Here's some thing's Adam & I took away from the weekend...
1. Since were going to stay together for 25 years we need to start taking more pictures together! So our children have plenty for the slide show
2. Never tell your spouse she ought to get the lap band done if she wants to look hot, although you'd rather her stay the way she is so other men wont find her attractive
3. Be grateful & Praise God for each day he gives us together, despite what your spouse does or says through your journey together... because it's a GIFT
It is hard to see Tammy going through so much right now. I literally want to step in, and take on some of it for her. Cancer, 3 small children, work, a house, & everyday life. I just don't see how she does it ALL! It took a day of resting for me to recover from our weekend, so I can only imagine how she feels. The weekend truly inspired me though. Seeing her Parents happily together after 25 years, and all the blessings God has given them. It was just encouraging. When my Parents rolled over 25 years together, I wasn't married or even dating anyone seriously. Now, after being married for 5 years I've had a taste of how difficult staying together can be. It's not easy in a society where Marriage is not the "Norm" anymore. So Thanks Mom & Dad for your great example, and thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Beasley for letting us share in your celebration. You are all a inspiration to me.
Until Next Time,

Confessions of a MAN!!!!

So I have a little confession, and apology to make. Me being the man that I am, has a syndrome known as "foot in mouth". Let me explain. Sunday morning my wife and I were sitting in church listening to the pastors message. Which might I add was a great one as usual, was on the Proverbs woman. As the pastor was preaching, I leaned over to Julie and said jokingly "wow that sounds like me." Of course Julie glared at me with that look. And I knew I was in trouble. I told her that I was joking, and that I know she has to deal with alot more stuff than I do, with kids, work, financies, and all the other wonderful things she has on her plate. But boy did I mess up. Hince "FOOT IN MOUTH". Well I'm here to apologize for putting my foot in my mouth. Although by now almost 5 years later she is used to it, but I do owe her and apology. You are my Proverbs woman and will always be.

Until next mess up

Thanks to my husband...

(Above) Me & My Addiction
2 Samuel 2:6
6"Now may the LORD show lovingkindness and truth to you; and I also will show this goodness to you, because you have done this thing.
I need to Thank my husband for being so good to me lately. For those of you who don't we sold the Cavalier a couple of weeks ago. So, now we just have the truck which makes more sense for us. With that though, on the days we both work, we get up at 5am, and he drops Jonah & I off at my work around 6:15am, & then drops Trenten off at Kidsfirst. It's an early, long day.. the nice thing is it has helped me catch up on my work, and get more organized which was desperately needed.

The down side is.. I am not, and probably never will be A MORNING PERSON! I use to hate coffee, would not touch the stuff. Since Jonah came in to my life, I've became addicted to it. I can't hardly function with out it on the days I work. My wonderful sweet Husband has came to this realization the hard way. I admit that I have a not nice side in the mornings, & sometimes poor Adam catches the brunt of that.

The other morning the alarm didn't go off, or neither one of us heard it if it did! So, we woke up around 5:45 and went to running like chickens with our heads cut off! It was a mad dash to get everyone up & going, & out the door on time! We made it though! As we drove by the Exxon, I said "I guess there is no time for coffee huh'?" Adam sweetly replied, "No." I didn't bite his head off, I just sadly said, "Ok.." So, he drops Jonah & I off at my work, takes Trenten to school, and what does my wonderful husband do? He comes back by with my coffee!

He didn't want my day to start off bad at work also. I thought that was very sweet of him. Any man that can love his wife when she looks like she does in that picture is alright in my book! I have to say these early mornings sure our taking a toll on me. Hair up in pony tail, no make up, and far from the "Proverbs 31 woman" he still thinks I'm alright.
Until Next Time,

Breast is Best Drama....

Now, Doesn't that look like a happy, healthy baby if you ever saw one! He has been on the boob milk for 6 months today. Way to go, right? I think so, but not everyone shares this mother's enthusiasm. In fact, I feel like I am not very enthusiastic about the experience myself. I don't go around saying everyone should breastfeed, or being an spokesperson for the LLL! Don't get me wrong, I wanted to breastfeed my children. With Trenten I only made 7 weeks, & threw in the towel. So, I really didn't go into the experience with Jonah expecting to make it this long. I have though, & I think that's something to be proud of.
I have taken a lot of criticism lately for continuing to Breastfeed because Jonah is 6 months old. Although it is recommended to Breastfeed until 12 months these days. I would like to make it that long, BUT we'll see when he finally gets those teeth through. I wanted to put this out there so people could understand what is driving me. Take a look at this...

(On the Left Trenten's Daily Medications, which have now been switched up some due to the diagnosis of Asthma last week)

Talk about feeling guilty for throwing in the towel! I will always wonder if I would have breastfed him longer, would he be going through all this now. Maybe, BUT if continuing to breastfeed Jonah will reduce the risk of allergies & asthma for him... Then guess what, I'm gonna' keep on keepin' on!

(On the Right, different supplements we've tried for Jonah & his sensitive stomach)
We started buying these just for him to drink on occasions like Church, staying with family for afternoon, etc. If I quit breastfeeding it would cost $26.00 every 4 days. You do the math! I did, and I know I'd rather keep on breastfeeding than pay that! Wouldn't you?
Another thing I would like for everyone to understand is that yes I'm glad I've got to do this. I know there are Mother's that wanted to, and we're not able to. So, I am grateful. It's not always a bed of roses though. I wish at times I could leave Jonah with family more often, and have some time to myself. I wish I could rock Jonah to sleep at night, but because I'm his food source when I hold him, all he wants is to eat! I wish I could wear regular bras again so my boobs didn't sag to my waist!I think it's sad that I'm looking forward to something like that!
The Reality is I'm doing what I think is best for Jonah & myself right now, and I'm not going to feel bad or guilty about that! I just thought if I shared some of what I miss out on by doing what I feel is best for us, it might help people to see it's not so selfish of me to keep breastfeeding. Thank you for letting me vent on my blog!
Until Next Time,

Our Weekend...

(Above) Picture of "Gus" (Chocolate Lab) & "Zeke" (Miniture Doxxon) lounging in Backyard together.

Let me back up a couple of weeks here. For those of you who don't know we had a dog named Gus, a beautiful Chocolate Lab. "Had" being the key word there! He was the dog that was given to us by a neighbor, as a Friend for Zeke our 4 year old Miniture Doxxon. Zeke was our Baby before Real Babies. So all the Transitioning he has been through over the last 2 years has been kind of difficult for him. Zeke slept in our bed, wore clothes, and lived in our house before Trenten.

Post Trenten, he went from a kennel at night, to a full time outside dog when we moved to Malakoff a little over a year ago now. That was a really hard adjustment for Zeke, so we took in Gus. That was great for a little while. I had the Chocolate Lab I always wanted my kids to grow up with, like me. Zeke had a friend to play with... life was good.

Then, Gus started EATING EVERYTHING! Adam had never had a lab, so I tried to explain that they just do that during their puupy phase. So, he would quit threatening to get rid of him for a few weeks. I started trying to work with Gus on only eating his things, and not being so rough with Trenten.

That didn't go so well. The tables turned and Adam was then the one talking me into putting the gun away! This dog was the stupidest lab I ever came by! He ate all the wires & hoses to the BBQ, the electrical to the air conditioner, and pretty much anything that would stand still long enough! Any thing BUT the chew toys and stuff bought for him. Anyway needless to say a couple weeks ago Adam found him a new home with the "Dogs Against Drugs" program in Athens. We'll see how he does there!

Anyway, Gus has only been relocated for a couple of weeks... but poor Zeke was once again devestated. All by himself in that big back yard! He would sit & Cry at the Backdoor all night, then last week he quit eating. So Adam told me to find him a friend when he found out I was taking a trip to "First Monday" with his sister Karen, and his mom Cathy.

After a (what seemed to me) long search through the slums of muddy Dog Alley... we found Duke. A perfect match so far forall the family needs. He is Great & gentle with Trenten & Jonah, & him and Zeke get along Great also! Zeke is back to his old self, & we're all happy! More pictures to come!

(Above) Trenten & New member of family DUKE riding home from "First Monday" together!

So, we leave "First Monday all in my Truck. Karen, Cathy, Jonah, Trenten, Duke & myself. We head to Leagueville to Karen & Craig's new house to unload a Kitchen Island that was the original purpose of the trip to "First Monday" to begin with. We stop in Athens to Pick up Adam from work, because he had never seen Craig & Karen's new place either.

(Above) Craig & Karen's New house in Leagueville. Is actually Craig's Grandparents old house, that they are updating, & it looks like new! Great job guys!

We took the Grand Tour, and were blown away at how Great it's looking. We were looking forward to going to dinner with the fam. after unloading the island and all. BUT when you have 2 overly exhausted children, one exhausted husband, and a dog... Sometimes home & to bed is the best option! So we took a rain check on the dinner, and headed home to end our very long day!

My apologies to Craig & Karen for not having a picture of the 2 of you to put on here, the ones we took came out blurry & dark.

(Above) Picture of Adam & Karen after unloading the kitchen island. For the Record Craig & Adam unloaded the island, and Karen Supervised! Way to go Crew!

Finally, the moment you've been waiting for

It's about 5:30. And I'm at work, and actually have time to write something. Julie has been asking me when am I going to participate in this blog. Of course my response is "when I have time". But I see how much fun she is having with this and decided I'd better put my two cents worth. To be honest, I think I've showed it to every body I've worked with, mostly for the pictures of my kids. But a lot of the nurses like looking at the cake pics as well.
I want Julie to know how much I love her, and the kids. And apologize for me having to work so much. Till next time Adam

God's little blessings....

(On Left) Trenten Passed out on floor after a Hard night at First Baptist Malakoff's Radiate 08' REVIVAL!

I think Trenten does this just to aggravate his mother! I hate seeing him lying on that COLD floor. I would also like everyone to note the baby gate in the doorway of his room. He's not only an escape artist at Church, it started at home!

When he did this Monday night after Revival, Adam & I got a good laugh out of it. We went through the nightly routine of putting both the boys to bed (they share a room). I sang "the moon song" as Trenten calls it, only about 100 times, then we had to go "TT" one more time, then he needed his Vicks Vapor Rub on, then I finally said, "That's enough Trenten! Get in your Bed & play with your cars!" That's the new reversed psychology I'm using at bedtime. He doesn't cry, and get all dramatic on me if I don't say "Lay down & go Night Night!" He just sits in his bed, and plays with his hot wheels cars until he falls asleep. NOT MONDAY NIGHT though!

He tried climbing the Gate. He tried pulling the gate down. All very quietly so Mom & Dad wouldn't hear, so he thought! Then he finally gave it up, layed down in the Floor, and he was out! Just one way this week that Trenten reminded me, what a BLESSING children are. We take them for Granted in the Hustle & Bustle of everyday life. When I saw him looking so precious & sweet asleep on the floor, I Thanked God for the Reminder of not taking our children for Granted... and then I said, I have to get a picture and put that on my BLOG!

(On Left) Jonah having a blast in his exersaucer this week!
It was nice this week on my 2 Days off to get to spend some quality time with the kids. Jonah & I got some one on one time playing while Trenten was taking a nap. Of course they never take a nap at the same time! That's okay though.. I worry if I actually got to take a nap one day, that I would want one everyday! That's just not reality so I would rather not even get started with that.
They grow so---- fast! Adam dressed Jonah for Revival one night this week in a hand-me-down that Trenten wore in his 6 month pictures. We were looking at Trenten's picture, & saying "It seems like we took him to get these pictures done yesterday, & now his brother is wearing his outfit! That's Crazy!" My, how time fly's when your having fun. I think My, how time fly's when your busy fits a little better, but that's just me.
Until Next Time,

My Hobby...

It all started back in 1993 when My Aunt Carolyn (My Mom's Sister) came to California for a visit. I was 10 years old, & it was during the Summer. So boredom was high on the list of things to do! My Aunt had recently taken a Wilton Cake class, & started decorating Cakes for friends for a little extra money on the side! She brought her decorating kit with her, so she could show off her new skills... Never knowing she would ignite the Passion in her niece to do the same.
From that Summer on, I became the cake girl in our family. I always loved to bake, cook, make "New Creations".. Pretty much anything in the Kitchen other than stinkin' Dishes! I continued on my journey of doing Cakes for all the family Birthdays for years. I had all these cool cake ideas in my head, but when you're using the 4 basic plastic cake tips from Wal-Mart because that's all you have... Your kind of limited! My sweet Husband Adam realized this, so for Christmas in 2006 he bought be a Wilton beginner Cake Kit! Trenten's 1st Birthday was coming up in January, & that was the first cake I used my kit with! It was so much fun... we call it the cake that Started it all! You can see it on my Slide show, it's the Doggy Cake.
I was so excited when My Aunt Carolyn, the one who started my interest in Cake baking moved here to Crossroads TX. Now we've started doing cakes together on the side. It has been great, she has so much experience & expertise. She has been teaching me lots of new tricks! So, check out my Slide show & you can see what we've been up to in our Spare time! These are not all my Cake Pictures, just my Favorites!
Until Next Time,

New at this...

Okay... this bloging thing is all new to us, but I'm excited! I hope everyone enjoys getting to read about our Crazy daily lives.. I say Daily but with all we have going on, we'll see! I had a cake to deliver this morning for a baby shower, & decided while Adam had the kids I would come up to work & set this blog up! I can't tell you how wierd it feels to be working on something & not have to stop a bigillion times because somebody needs something... I Love being a Mom, and I wouldn't trade my life for the world, but this is kind of nice... I forgot how relaxing "quiet" can be!
I wish I could write more, but I do need to get back home... house work, yard work, & Children are needing me I'm sure! Got to LOVE Saturday's! I remember when I looked forward to Saturday because I got to sleep in.... Sleep? What's that?
Until Next Time,
