3,4 and 5

I am thankful for everything in my life! From the littlest thing to the biggest. I think I am going to do something different this November. Since everything in my house is breaking I am going to try to turn every negative thing that is happening  into a positive. So here it goes.
Day 5 my refrigerator and freezer broke and I lost some food. But I was able to clean all the draws and shelves from all the yuck that refrigerators collect.  Day 4 My kitchen sink started to leak. My old facet and lines were all rusted.  I got a new kitchen facet!! I feel like I have a brand new kitchen. I will have to take a picture. Day 5 refrigerator and freezer are still not working. The guy has been out twice now and will be coming back tomorrow. It's keeping things cold just not as cold as it should and my freezer is way to cold. At least my food is not going to go bad this time. I know things could be so much worse but it's hard to find the positive when everything is breaking one right after another. I hope in a few days everything will be back in working order!! But until then I am still trying to laugh at it all. It really is funny when you look at everything that has broke in the last week. Oh the crazy life I live.

Day 1 and 2

I know, it's been forever. Sorry guys, just know no news is good news at this end. Jordyn is doing great! She is in preschool and making tons of new friends. Her social calander is jammed pack with birthday parties, play dates and trips to the library. Honor and Bree are in a toddler program twice a week and are doing very well. Mark is out training and will be deploying yet again. He just turned the big 30!! So we will celebrate when he gets home. He picked up Staff Sargent and we are all very proud of him.  Life with the P's is anything thing but boring. I will try my best to set aside some time at the end of the day to write a little something.

It's November and the start of 30 days of being thankful. Today I am thankful that I can still laugh even though everything is my house is breaking. It's a known fact that every time your husband leaves for training or deployment everything goes wrong. The fridge stopped working and needed a new mother board. The dishwasher stopped letting water inside, the kitchen sink started to leak and the list goes on. Today my cloths dryer started to leak water. I don't even understand how it is possible for something to leak water that is not attached to a water line. But, it is and I just have to laugh and go with it. A few days ago I bought the home warranty for all the big appliances in my house. I'll be calling on Monday for them to come and fix my dryer and I am sure it will not be the last time I call them.

Day 2. I am thankful for rainy day dress up Saturday's with my girl's!!

Happy 5th Angel Birthday Aiden

It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years. Some days it feels like a lifetime ago and other days it feels like it was yesterday.  I try hard not to think about the what ifs. They drive me crazy when I do.  I am having a hard time this year. I am not sure why this year hurts so much more. Maybe because in my head I know I am done having children even if my heart says there is always room for more. Maybe because he would of started kindergarten in the fall. Whatever the reason I am just sad. Now don't get me wrong I love my girls anyone you ask will tell you they are my everything. When you lose a child you think about things differently you day dream about a life when they are here, you think about the what ifs and the could have beens. It does not mean that you don't love your other children any less. I know that if we did not lose Aiden that Jordyn would not be here simple as that. Would the girls I don't know maybe, maybe we would have had a whole different family. Like I said I try not to think about it. What I do know is the three little girls that are sleeping upstairs have three Guardian angels looking out for them. God most have known that they would need them:)
 So today we will have cake and remember all you have taught us.
Happy birthday Aiden thank you for teaching me that after a storm no matter how bad or how long the sun will always come back out.
