lil mama's back in business :)

Hey everyone! I know I haven't written a blog in forever. But, our parents are back in "U" and I'm in charge again! Emily and Tyler are in Orange County on a missions trip so it's just Sarah, the boys, and me! That doesn't mean the house is any less loud however. Charlie and Garrett can make enough noise to sound like there's 10 kids here!! I don't know why boys have to be so loud. They can't just sit and play barbies like girls..they have to slam cars together and make the trains fly off the table and run and scream. I'll never understand boy brains. They aren't much different when they get older either! Okay, enough about boys..

Yesterday was a very lazy day. We watched movies and just hung out at home all day. Today I decided we should actually do something so I got up and got ready and then we got a surprise visit from Uncle Mark and all our cousins! They brought us pizza and hung out with us for a little bit. It was so good to spend some time with them! :) Then we packed up some snacks and waters and went to Lodi Lake. We stayed there for almost 2 hours and they still didn't want to leave! There was only one other kid there besides Char and Garrett so they had the park to themselves but Charlie kept complaining that there weren't any kids to play with. One kid would leave, then another one would come. But it was a very quiet day at the park! It was really nice too! Not too hot, cool in the shade. However, the boys still managed to get as sweaty as possible. Those too sweat more than any other kid I've seen. After they played and got tired out ;) we went to Target to get Icee's and water bottles. I have a really annoying cough that wont go away and I get intense cough attacks throughout the day where I literally have to drink an entire bottle of water. I drink a lot of water every day, I suppose it's a good thing but we run out so fast! I've been taking nyquil at night so I can sleep but I still wake up coughing and have to sleep slightly sitting up. It's a pain!!! Hopefully it goes away soon and no one else gets it! 

Today I found out my parents might be home as soon as next Wednesday! Woo hoo!! That would be soo awesome. We all miss them already!! Also we are getting very excited to meet Carson and John!! :) Hurrrrry up passports! That is pretty much the only thing that could keep them there longer. I am ready to get back on our normal schedule and adjust to having two more brothers. 

Alrighty well I hope everyone had a lovely day, and I'll be blogging again soon! :)


Summer time & Sunshine, Ashley


  1. Good to see you back on the blog. It's cold and rainy here in Australia as we are having winter. I do hope that you continue writing even when you Mom gets back. You do a very interesting write-up and I would love to know how life is for you and how you adjust to those new brothers and how they adjust to you.

    Praying for happy days as you fill the Momma shoes.

  2. I agree w/Jen, Ashley - please keep blogging after Carson & Ivan get home. We want to know (from the eldest sister's perspective) how everyone is adjusting and adapting to the 2 boys. It's going to take a HUGE amount of God's grace for them to transition to this new life peacefully. We know that nothing is impossible w/God, and we would love to pray w/all of you as each step on the journey happens. I am praying for you now as you walk out being the "lil mommy"- GOD BLESS YOU! xxBoots
