My Dream Guy......

Or should I say FORMER dream guy!! I love Matthew McConaughey!!! Love him. Even after the rumors that he doesn't wear deodorant I had moved past that. It could have worked out....until I read this......

Matthew McConaughey: Actor. Surfer. Delivery room DJ. "We found a great rhythm. Contractions started kicking in. I sat there with her, right between her legs," the actor drawls to OK! of coaching Camila Alves through the birth of their son, Levi, who arrived on July 7. "We got tribal on it, we danced to it! I was DJ-ing this Brazilian music ... We were jamming! She was sweating. No painkiller, let's go. She just clicked into that gear that only a woman has at a time like this." Not surprisingly, the epically easygoing McConaughey remained even-keeled during the birth. "We'd been up for 40-something hours, and we went from dead tired to a really steadfast, 'Let's handle this ... let's stay in the rhythm. Don't let the contraction be more than you,'" he tells the mag, which reportedly shelled out $3 million for the first photos of button-cute Levi." Matthew says Camila wanted a natural childbirth but had to get the drugs when complications arose. "We ended up having an epidural because, on the large contractions, the umbilical cord was being compressed," explains the star, who apparently didn't get popped in the nose by Alves for using the plural when talking about receiving pain medication during childbirth. "They went in and tried the vacuum. This is where I learned -- and no one tells you this -- but having a baby is a bloody, pukey, sweaty, primeval thing! And I mean that as a beautiful thing. It is wild. But the vacuum didn't work, and the doctor said, 'C-section.'" McConaughey, who cut the umbilical cord, also recounts the moment he learned they'd had a son (the couple decided not to find out the gender beforehand). "I said, 'Come here, little man,'" he shares. "I saw the pecker and screamed that we'd been right all along about him being a boy. Then I brought him over to [Camila]." Levi already has his very first wet suit, adds his dad, who jokes that he'll "be surfing next weekend."

It's over Matt!!!! You're a freak. A very hot freak....but still a freak!!!

Anyone can get sucked in!!!

A little history here: My girls LOVE to vacuum. Love it!
This morning Lily woke up at 6. I don't get up on Sunday's until 6:30. I told her to go in and turn the TV on. (She knows how to put it on channel 148 for cartoons.)
I get up at 6:30. When I walk in the living room I see my 5 year old watching an infomercial for the Shark VX3 Vacuum!! I said "Lily, I thought you were watching cartoons?" She said "Well I was, but I am watching this show about vacuums and this little thing is AMAZING!"

Sunday Morning Delight

Sunday mornings around our house go from this.....

To this.....
See Mom, the screaming and yelling is paying off!

My children need your prayers. Did you see me at church last night with them? If you did, you should have started praying then!!! This is how it went down...
Went to church alone (DJ was working.) Girls had slept a lot yesterday afternoon, maybe too much! Got dressed, went to church.
Girls were okay heading to church, but then something happened. Something EVIL!!!! We didn't have bible safari, which is never good! Addy got away from me while we were singing and darted behind the pew. I grabbed her, and got her back at our pew. Well, then she was just mad. She tried to crawl under the pew to escape. I grabbed her chubby little legs and pulled her back.
Well, then she was REALLY MAD!! Then the screaming starts. I get our things, get Lily, tell her to go sit with my mom & dad. I have my hand over Addy's mouth as she is kicking, screaming and arching her back. As I am leaving I see Lily running behind me crying saying "Don't leave me, I want to stay with you!" REALLY??? I'm one of these mothers now that causes a huge scene and people are pointing and whispering....
"Oh poor thing, she has no control!"
"Where is their dad? They never act like that for him!"
"I bet she doesn't spank, that is what's wrong with kids today, their not spanked enough."
"I think their mother has issues, so you can't blame them for their behavior".
"Oh, that's why they help with Bible Safari, their kids are horrible!"
I was humilated! On my top 10 most embarrasing church moments it ranks at #2. (Only to be outdone by #1 which was getting my skirt caught in my panties when I was 13 and walking infront of the high school boys at a church potluck!)

DJ and I have both been having trouble sleeping lately, I think we found the problem. I woke up the other morning to find Addy between us and Lily at my feet! (Notice Lily brought her own blanket!)

At what point do we stop sugar coating? When do we stop saying "I'll tell you when you're older?" I am serious here, I need some guidance. I have said before, if Lily asks me a question I give her a real answer. (I don't always go into great detail, but I give her an answer.)


L: What's a period?
Me: It's something a woman gets when she is older
L: I will get a period when I am older?
Me: Yes
L: Okay

So last night we drive by a cemetery. And it goes like this...

L: Those are graves, right?
Me: Yes
L: What's in a grave?
Me: Well when we die, what part goes to Heaven?
L: Our soul.
Me: Right! But our bodies, the skin & bones, they have to.....be.......uh.....uh..........so did you and Miss Re have fun at Pelican Bay today?
L: Yeah it was fun!

At what point do we "elaborate?" When do we stop saying "I'll tell you when you're older?" I want to be able to teach my child, and if she asks a question, I want her to get the answer from me. And if you know Lily, you know if she doesn't get the answer from me, she'll just ask one of you! I know she's only 5, but she learns new things every day, and I want to give her information to help her grow, but also don't want to freak her out either!!

Got Milk?

Oh.......mom, I didn't see you there....What???
I love those marshmallows!!
Oh man! This is NOT what I had in mind!

My favorite pics from the 4th of July....

This is the scariest shot of the day...these two can NOT be left alone!

Addy, Isabelle, Lily & Hasten

Addy and her first sparkler (my Nana won't like this one!)

Miss: "This parade sucks!

Priss: "Where's the candy??"

Sweet girl...
He didn't blow up the Conley's house, thank goodness!!!
We had a great day at the parade with my parents and the Proctor's. Then we headed to Jason's parents house and had a great time all day swimming and eating, and eating and swimming! I love the 4th of July!

Selling Kidney for Disney!!!

No really!! Do you think I could sell one of my kidney's on e-bay? What are the rules on that?
DJ grew up in San Diego. When the he and his brother both turned 5 one of their gifts was a trip to Disney! Well, Damon decided when Lily was 1 he wanted to try to continue that tradition. When she blew out her candles on June 17th........she was 5 and it hit me hard if we're gonna do this we have to do it.
We had been wanting to go see Damon's grandfather in SD anyway (since his grandmother passed away.) So we booked the flight to San Diego, and we are going to stay with him and then drive to LA for 2 days and do the Disney thing.
Once we walk thru the gates we will have spent close to $1800 and NOT done one DANG THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you kidding me??? I may seriously have heart failure before this is all over! But I am sure it will be worth it to see their eyes light up. It better be!! My luck we'll walk out and Lily will say "was that it???"
