Christmas Overload!!!!

December has been a BUSY month for us, as I am sure it has been for you!!!! Between school stuff for Rayden, nausea, Santa, and Christmas we were running ragged. I am sooooo thankful for this week that we have NOTHING to do (when I say "we" I mean me and the boys, Chance of course had to go to work)!!!

Cupcakes I made for my Wednesday night kids.

Rayden played Joseph in is little school play. As I was trying his costume on him he said "I really like my dress" followed by a long pause then "Mom, was Joseph a girl?" ha ha!!!

Santa came to visit the kids to get in their requests. Rayden was SOOOO excited to see Santa, he could hardly contain himself!!! Casen on the other hand had no idea what to think....
and he didn't blink or move until Santa exited the room!!!!

The boys loved the Christmas tree.... and Casen undecorated it daily!!!

There were Christmas parties at school....

Then the fun began!!!! It was off to Mimi's (my mom's) in Ruidoso the weekend before Christmas.......

Where there was NO shortage of presents!!!

My niece and Casen, who were not friends by any means!!!

My nephew, Conner, kinda got lost in the packages!

Rayden was a little too busy opening presents to be bothered by me taking pictures

But Chance got a new TV for our bedroom!!!!

And Rayden & Casen got a new playhouse for the backyard!!!!

And we all left with wayyyyy too much stuff!!! We filled my car, and we filled Chance's truck, and we barely had room for our suitcases!!!!!

Then, before we had time to settle from that fun, it was off to my dads' house were we went for Christmas Eve. We stayed around and went to church with my dad and Grandma that evening. While we were singing in church, Rayden turns around and asks "Mom, when are we going to sing Jingle Bells, I know that song!"

The fun wasn't over yet...... it was home on Christmas Eve so the boys could open their presents from me & Chance.......

And then......... Santa came!!!

Table for Five????

In case you haven't heard the big news, our family will be growing by one sometime next summer!!! We have prayed about having another one, adopting, or being content with the two boys we have, so I guess we got our answer!!!
Soooooo, let's all think PINK!!!!!

My New Venture

I am the newest consultant for Scentsy Wickless Candles.

I have been debating for a while on selling this great product and finally decided to take the leap!!! I am super excited, not only to hopefully make a little extra money, but just to have something new to give a little attention too. All of you stay at home moms know what I mean when I say that sometimes you get too caught up in the same day to day routine.

I hope you will all visit my website at http://www.hayleepotter.scentsy.us/ where you can shop online, sign up to host a party or join our team in selling this wonderful product!!!

If you aren't familiar with the Scentsy line, you are missing out. They are beautiful decorative warmers and waxes. Because there isn't an open flame the wax is able to be more saturated in fragrance. Scentsy candles are much safer, the melted wax only gets to just about body temperature so you don't have the fear of burns and if you are anything like me you don't have to worry about starting a fire by forgetting about your candle. Scentsy candles are great for school or business because they are flameless!!!!

If you are interested in hosting a party and receiving free products as well as other rewards, please let me know!!! Now is the perfect time to have a party & get some of your Christmas shopping done!!!!

If you don't want to have the traditional party, you can also have a "basket party" I will give you a basket with the samples and all of the information you will need. You can then collect the orders yourself by taking the basket to your place of work, etc, and you will still receive all the incentives and rewards of a hostess!!!!

Again, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you, and please take a few minutes to check out my website!!!!

Halloween Pictures!!!!

Once upon a time there was SPIDERMAN......

and then there was the PIMP!!!!

We went to the fall festival at church last night!!! I wasn't sure how the pimp costume Chance picked out for Casen was going to fly in church, but he got a lot of compliments & lots of laughs!!! And not that I am partial, but how could he not????? He looked absolutely adorable!!!!

Last week was Rayden't field trip to the Corn Maize. I would love to say that it is always a blast, but for some reason that place is bad luck for me. Mark my word..... I will NEVER drive there again. Last year I got stuck, yes stuck in the mud. Rayden is still traumatized by that experience. This year Rayden chose to ride the bus (Yes, the child didn't want to ride with his Momma)!!! This year was even worse.... I ran over something in the parking lot. It was something sticking up (like maybe a water spicket) with a tire thrown over it, so apparently I wasn't the first to hit it. Okay, so that doesn't sound so bad, but I haven't mentioned that I was in my BRAND NEW car, yes only had it four days!!!! It is a fixable accident, but I was sick the whole day about it.
Now, enough with my pity party. The boys had a great time, and I managed to get a few pictures in.
