I Guess I better give you all a little update!!! It has been a little crazy at the mingo home!!!! we are doing good though!!! trying to stay ahead!! I have been wanting to blog for a while but I feel like so much has happened that I don't know where to start!!! so I am just going to go for it!! and just tell you the latest!!!
My Little Chantel is not so little these days she's about ready to have her 5th birthday!!!! this last month she has matured so much!!! she is my big helper!!! She is loving preschool!! and loving dance!! I had been sick over the weekend and monday morning chaney was suppost to go to school!! she said she didnt feel good so I said k you better stay home so we dont pass it on.....well about 12:30 she asked me if it was ok to take medicine if your really not sick??? then she asked mom would I be home from school yet I said ya why??? she got this big smile on her little face and said well mom I'm not really sick I just wanted to stay home and get medicine!!! she thought it was pretty funny!!! I about died!!! she's only 4!!! what am I going to do!!! Chantel likes anything she thinks her dad would like shes always asking me what do you think daddy would like??? so sweet!!!
Mason is doing good!! he's into telling stories!! lots and lots of them!!! usually about "daddy" or thomas!!! we went to my sisters house the other day about 15min away and he talked about his daddy from her house to ours!!! lots of stories from the park to potty training to chocolate!!! he keeps us laughing!!! and crying sometimes!! him and chantel are such good buddies!!! the other night about midnight he woke up crying because he was scared that his sissy was going to have to go to school and he didnt want her to!!! they have so much fun together!!
Mas woke up one morning and decided he wanted to be potty trained!!!yeah!!! but scary!!!really!!can we do this??? but he's been and angel with it only a few accidents!!! hes a big boy!! he told me the other day "mom look how big I am see these legs!!! I'm 3!) And tonight saying his prayers (he said thankyou that my dad is a good dad!!) I love that!!!
Landon is our happiness sent straight from heaven!!! he's always smiling!! and laughing!!! he is clapping and waving!! and just this week starting to move!!! he scoots on his little bum!! His first word was DADDA!!! and then momma!! I'm sure jordan had alot to do with that he was always making sure they said him first!!! Its pretty sweet!!! landon is so snuggly!!! I just love it!!HE's got the cutes dance!! he moves his head and whole body from side to side like a little bobble head!! he's growing to fast!!! stay little I keep telling my kids but know one listens around here!!!
Well as for me!! I am hanging in there!!! somedays are better then others!!! Its been hard to balance everything and not just work all day because its easier to work and just forget and not think about everything....but that isnt what I want!! I am very lucky to have such good clients who are more like friends and family coming to get there hair done!!! I have decided not to pay 70 dollars a hour for counseling when I can get it right in my own house!! its been a blessing!!! Its just become part of the haircut!!! cry, get cute, maybe cry somemore!! laugh at mas and then get cuter!! and then I the stylist feels better!! and Hopefully the client has cute new hair!!! Its usually a win win!! I love my job!! And more important I love being a mom!!! its my greatest happiness!!! my kids get me through the day!!! I got a new calling a while ago!! I am a relief society teacher!! I know it sounds scary huh me teaching!! but as I have been getting my lesson ready!!! and talking to my mom who has the same calling!!(so nice) I can see what my heavenly father has in mind!! this lesson is being more diligent and concerned at home by Elder Bednar!! it has really helped me!! has given me so much peace to hear him share his testimony of this!!! I am grateful that I can Read these conference talks and really study them!! we are so lucky to have a prophet and apostles who will never lead us astray!!!
One of my favorite new qoutes is!!! God gave us memories that we might have June Roses in the decembers of our lives!! by pres Monson!! Isnt that great!! I love that!!
I love remembering all of our good memories!! I hope and pray that we wont forget!! I have been trying to get my pictures all in books nothing fancy just in books my kids love to look at them!! 1400 hundred pictures!!! I think they will last a life time!!! I am grateful for pictures!!! Chaney and I have have been making bows!! She is into glitter and sparkles!!! Its been fun!!
Okay I was trying not to make this to long!!! But I guess I just have a lot to say!!! Well I better get to bed!! My alarm clock (meaning,Mason) will be pulling me out of bed all to soon!!! lots of love to you!!! thanks for all your prayers and every everything you have done for me!!! may god bless !!! shell
