Find Time for What You Love

I lay in bed every single night and regret not taking more home videos, pictures, consistently updating my blog every week so that I will remember my little ones and every thing that they did. I never have time but this year I am going to find the time because this is what is important to me! So I begin the New Year with a promise to myself to do all of these things!

It's not going to be perfect and it doesn't have to be. I look at other people amazing blogs and think there is no way I have time to make mine look like that but that's not what I am doing this for I am blogging to help remember the funny things my kids say, what our crazy life look like day to day and to remember all of the little things and turn this blog into a book at then end of the year!

Yeah! I am so excited to be back blogging!

Paisley Bostyn Brems

My Baby girl just turned 1! It's amazing to me how quick they grow up and it speeds up 3x most likely our last. She is so much fun right now her little personality is really starting to come out. If I am in the room she will go to no one but me and even though sometimes it can be a little hard I love it so much and wouldn't trade it for anything even on the hard days. The only other thing in this world she would rather have more than me is the "scooter" Addie bought a little electric scooter with her grade money and she didn't expect to have to share it with her baby sister who wasn't even one at the time. We can't walk by the garage door without having her whine and lean towards the door because she knows where it is, its the craziest thing to me that she remembers it out there in the middle of the day and we haven't even gone outside yet to remind her and when we go to get in the car to leave it's ALL over she cries and cries for it. Needless to say me and Aaron take turns going around the neighborhood in circles on this little scooter however Aaron rides Stockton's scooter which is a lot bigger so he doesn't look as silly as me but it goes pretty fast and Paisley just loves it she stands up right in the middle and I hold her in between my legs and she just grins from ear to eat while her little piggy at the top of her head just blow in the wind and even after literally 1/2 hour when I come into park it she squeals as I pull her off it and she holds onto the handle bars with her little fingers tightly gripped not wanting to let go.

She also is loving her little piggy in her room (it's a little pink piggy bank) every morning she will wake up knowing that I am going to say "oh, where your piggy Pais) she puckers up those little lips of hers blowing at a OOOHHHH and leans over to give it a kiss.

She is also loves loves loves dogs every time she sees one she either mick, bandit, and especially Daisy she gives us her famous Paisley puckering of the lips (she inherited from Stockton) with making a OOOHHH sound.

I have started tuning her front facing in her car seat so she can watch the movies the kids are watching and she has been in heaven she just stares at the movie (usually transformers, flicka, or beauty and the beast) and smiles the whole time she will look at me and the kids with her head a little higher than usual like I am a big girl!

She is so very picky with her foods she will hardly eat anything so I started feeling like I needed to give her something healthy so I bought some baby food (fruits) to see if I could get her to eat them and who I am kidding they instantly came flying out of her mouth with her all to familiar "cKcKcKcKcKcKcK" noise she makes when she either doesn't like the taste of something or sometimes she will do it with the feel of certain textures. However, she loves the most unhealthy foods here are some foods that she can't get enough of: Cheetos, dry cereal, ice cream, and luckily watermelon and drink a ton of water. We will keep working on some more healthy items :)

We recently took a trip to Starvation Lake and she was in her glory all the motorized things she couldn't have been happier between the boats and four wheelers all around she just loves anything with a motor lol. grandpa Robbie bought a little boat just her size that sits in the garage and every time we go over she wants me to put her in it and I can't get her out of it. She is deciding that Grandpa Robbie is a pretty fun guy who will always take her to her favorite things!

She never really laughs and never has she is giving many more smiles than she used too (this she got from her big sister Addie) I have to really tickle her right in the crease of her neck to get her to laugh and even then its just a quick little giggle and then she will stop its so funny because she is the happiest little thing but just doesn't want to or can't quite figure out how to smile!

She loves the bath tub and could also stay in there forever I have decided she just loves water every time we go to the lake so far this year the water has been freezing cold and we lean over the side of the boat and put her in it and not even a peep she just kicks and kicks and loves it no matter how cold it is and will get out on the tube anytime most little babies would scream with the water hitting them in the face like it does when shes on the tube behind the boat but not her she loves it. Poor Aaron has realized that he will never be able to talk Any of our kids into staying home with him on the boating trips. Guess he'll just have to start coming with us!

She will be 14 months in a few days and is still not walking she is a little chicken because she has great balance and is totally capable of walking by herself but is just to scared to so we are currently working on that!

She loves chewing on my tooth brush in the mornings which is kind of disgusting but its the only way I can get her hair done so I let her and she just drools all over the place I think that it must feel good on her gums

Every time we walk past the hallway from Brightyn's room to our room she always makes a little noise passing a picture that I have up of the kids (addie, brightyn, and Stockton) before she was born this picture was taken and they were so cold so in this particular pic Brightyn has her head down crying and we go through all the kids by pointing at them and saying thier name and after I say each of their names she always makes a little noise and I just know she is trying to say them too and when we get to Brightyn's pic I will say Brightyn CRY and she will just smile we do this several times a day and she just loves it she is getting really close with Addies name she lets out a AAAAA which is an easy sound for a baby but she is trying her hardest to say it

She loves her brothers and sisters they are always teasing her and she gets so excited and will hurry and turn around as they are coming for her and dig her head into my chest and laugh (or I should say 1 little giggle)

I have an app that I downloaded for her a few months ago on my phone of a little baby that laughs, dances, sings, farts, and burps, suck a bottle and a binky and she just loves it and I will always say to her oh no baby CRY and she will touch the bottle so the baby will stop crying and drink the bottle and when she dances Pais will now dance by moving her arms around and bounce up and down SO dang cute and its been a life saver at times

Paisley B you are such a sweet baby girl we all love you so very much and are having a blast with you. You are the light in our lives and cant wait to watch you grow and create memories.

Going Private

Memorial Day Weekend

The girls and I decided to go to our townhouse in Mesquite while Stockton and Aaron stayed at home. We both had such a great time with the kids. The girls and I went to Lake Mead, a little shopping in Vegas and a little R&R at the condo with my family. Aaron and Stockton had a baseball tournament with the Baseball Academy and the annual AF Fire Department Memorial Day breakfast. Chelsea, my girls, and I went shopping on my birthday at the amazing "Ceasars Palace" in Vegas funny story I was a little nervous about taking my kids to Vegas (Not very kids friendly) so I decided that they would love to see the famous Vegas but I knew that I needed to have a little talk on the way there so the conversation started with "Girls, Las Vegas has some things that kids shouldn't see so you just need to stay close to mom !! Not let go of my hand even for a second!! and if you see something that's bad just turn your head. Addie "like what mom?" "well there may be things on big pictures of girls that are not very modest" so I got off Sahara exit and the very first advertising billboard was the picture of the show girls back end. Addie face was so hilarious I thought I was going to die laughing she just gasped with her hand over her mouth! It's amazing at how much worse things look when you have your kids with you! It's like watching a ROMANTIC movie with you parents for the 2nd time and not remembering some of the "parts" being that bad! I just laughed and said those are the kinds of things that I was talking about (But, honestly how do you turn your head) I was just so Happy at that exact point that Stockton was not with me! So we parked and went into Ceasars and Addie and Brightyn decided they were thirst so we stopped to get a drink and they wanted slushies the lady behind the counter says "The only flavor that doesn't have alcohol is Strawberry and of course my girls hear that so I bought them both a strawberry slushy and as we're walking away Addie looks at her slushy without taking a drink and looks up and says "mom, what is she's lying" LOL! Addie she wouldn't lie! "How do you know" Chelsea answers "because she would go to jail." Then Chelsea (yes, chelsea) looks at me and says "would she go to jail." Wow! she is pretty! I think, I know I will never take my kids to Vegas for a long long time. After shopping we finished the night off with dinner at Cheesecake Factory! We had such a great time. Thanks Girls for the great Birthday!

Stockton and Aaron from what I hear had a great time. Aaron took Stockton, and some friends (Dalton, KAden, Jack, and Dane) to dinner at Shakys, bowling,and then home for a sleepover! A few baseball games where Stockton did a great job and then ended the weekend with the Memorial Day Breakfast. I am so grateful for such an amazing family and the opportunities we have to travel and spend time with family and friends.

Athletic & Comical

Stockton continues to make us laugh just the other day at his baseball game Stockton looks at one of his teammates and says "what just happened" and the little boy says "I don't know." Stockton says "That's what I thought! Come on pay attention." He has done an unbelievable job this year in baseball he has hit several triples and a few home runs. Great job Stockton we love you so much! You're such an amazing kid you continue to amaze us with how kind and sweet you are to everyone especially your friends and family.

Our Happy "Crazy" Weekend!

Our weekend our typically crazy but this one was EXTRA crazy with 2 soccer games, dress rehersals, and the spring recital! The reason why it ended up being so crazy was due to all of this falling on Saturday! Luckly, Due to rain Baseball was canceled (I never thought I would be happy about Stockton's baseball game being cancelled but this weekend we needed a break somewhere! So, Thank You rain however, stay away next week so we can get in some BASEBALL!

We ended up leaving early Brightyn's soccer game to arrive just in time for her dress rehearsal to leave early to arrive late for Addie's Soccer game. I feel like this is becoming very routine for us to leave early and arrive late just to get everything in. However, crazy this may sound I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Aaron and I have always wanted to keep our kids very involved to give them every opportunity we can in life to find what they love and excel to "some" it may not make sense but for our family it does and although sometimes it's hard to 2nd guess yourself when other close to us are making comments we still come home and the end of each day knowing that we are doing the best we can and actually loving "almost" every moment of it!

I can't believe how fast the time goes!


For Addie's party this year I told her that she could have a sleepover with some friends and then surprised her with a Horseback riding party. It was so much fun and all of her best friends and family surprised her at Uncle Ron's stables. The kids had such a great time and Addie was so surprised. It was all worth it when I saw the look on her face when she walked in.... Priceless! Oh I love this little girl!

It seems like just yesterday my beautiful little girl was born. Can I even begin to tell you how much I love this precious little girl? The list of I love you's may be a little long for most but I just have to tell Addie how very much I LOVE being her mommy.

I love the way your always say “STOP MOM” when I am teasing you.

I love how you have NO IDEA how cute and sweet you are. Every time I tell you about how I think that you are the most beautiful girl both inside and out you just look at me like I am crazy.

I love how you want me to tuck you in bed every night and always tell me “I love you mommy”

I love how I can always tell when it was you with that little smile you give me.

I love how you’re always thinking of others and making sure that everyone else is happy before yourself.

At the age of 7 you’re loving Soccer, dance, horses. You love to color with little sister Brightyn and play games with Stockton and are loving little sister Pais (Can’t get enough of her) I don’t think there another 7 year old that is more responsible than you, you’re constantly making sure that you have read, homework is done, what time dance is and that you’re there on time. You amaze me at how smart you are and how much you love to learn, constantly asking questions. You’re dance teacher told me “If I had just half the girls work as hard as Addie I would be so happy” Not only has your dance teacher told me this but I have had soccer coaches and every teacher you have had since Preschool tell me this exact same thing. I think that you get this from you dad and that is why I love you so much you give 100% at everything you do and this is such a wonderful trait you will be so great at everything you do! I love you so so very much and can’t wait to watch you grow up into a beautiful, kind young lady. Love You Baby Girl!
