It Finally happened.....

I have to admit I have been waiting for this day.... I am constantly looking at my children and wondering "when will it happen?" I get anxious, I chew on my lip, I sometimes bite my nails, I am nervous everytime we go anywhere or do anything. Let's face it, these 2 kids have half of my genetic make-up. It was bound to happen sooner or later.... I am thankful that it was later....

Payton got her first set of stitches! At the age of 6 and she only had to get 3!

Now that we got the first set over and done with, I think I can breathe easier. She was scared, but she bravely laid there and joked with the doctor. After it was all said and done she declared that she couldn't go to school for the next week due to the stitches and purple eye. It isn't very fashionable... So we have been "dressing up" her stitches with rainbow heart band-aids and creative hairstyles. She is rockin it!

Waiting for some downtime...

In December I finally broke down and did it.... what is it, you ask. Well I signed up to sell Scentsy! So I have been really busy getting my business up and running.
I have tried several "Independent Sales" businesses before and never really had the success I was looking for. So when I found scentsy a few years back I thought I would "just" be a loyal customer. The product is amazing and over the years I have become addicted! It's safe, fun, and in the long run cheaper than candles. So I finally decided to sell the product, if only to support my habit!
If you already know about scentsy, I'm sure you love it, if not contact me and I will answer all of your questions!To all of my friends and family out there ..... I CAN SHIP DIRECTLY TO YOU! My website is http://www.sarahcherrey.scentsy.us

Now on to everything else that has been keeping us busy..... We recently went to Arizona for several things. While there Dominick decided to earn his "cool" badge. He was learning how to ride a mini motorcycle and challenged the curb to a duel..... I think the curb won!
Actually the story really isn't that cool.... my poor kids have inherited my clutsy gene and Dominick tripped over his own foot and fell into the corner of a door! Poor kid had a bloody nose, split lip, and a huge bruise inside for days!

We also had the chance to attend an iCarly pre-screening episode and meet the cast. It was a school day so I dropped the kids off at school, went grocery shopping, placed some blankets and chairs in line to save our spot, then picked the kids up from school. We were like 10th in line, it was amazing. So after keeping the kids occupied in line for 4 hours we made it inside! We sat 2 rows back and enjoyed our free popcorn!

The Cast was amazing, a few of them have family in the military and know what that life is like, so they wanted to do something special. The other members of the cast were so excited to experience the military life and see different bases. It was cool. So keep an eye out for us on Nicalodean (is that how it's spelled?).

Here's to a New Year

We are back in the swing of things from Christmas break, finally! I have to say I waited very impatiently for the kids to start school again. I love my children but man can they drive me CRAZY!
Some Highlights of 2011 for the Cherrey Family:
Jay always the goof, he can always put a smile on my face.... 9 years of putting up with me!

Dominick turned 8, got his hair cut, and was baptized!

Payton turned 6! Man is she a handfull.....

Many trips to the "Happiest place on Earth", but the best ones were when our friends were there too!

A trip to Idaho to see one of our favorite families! Gretchen and I in all our "mom glory"!

Trust me, there are so many pictures and fond memories.... but alas I still can not figure out how to get my pictures to download. I did manage to transfer the ones from my phone. Here's to the new year and getting it all figured out!

Jay's Resolution:
Loose his non-smoking weight (that's right he quit smoking!), finish his BSN, and take his wife on an amazing anniversary trip!

Sarah's Resolution:
Continue and maintain a healthy diet and routine, have more patience with my kids, keep up with journaling and blogging!

Domino's Resolution:
Be nicer to his sister, finish the HARRY POTTER book series, learn to play the violin, baseball

P-Goat's Resolution:
To ride her bike (no training wheels) with no fear, get better at tying her shoes, reading every night, and being nicer to her brother

Charity, Love, and Family

Grab This!

My friend Gretchen and her husband are trying to adopt this precious little girl. Sometimes I think she is a little nuts, but hey aren't we all? She is already the mom or 3 very active boys ages 6, 4, and almost 2. She is also expecting a baby girl come February. Adoption has always been in their plans but it wasn't pressing, until they found Marissa. She looks like their children, she laughs like their children, she reaches out through the thousands of miles and through the computer screen and takes hold of your heart. She has been neglected, yet beams at you like the sun. I'm not good at posting links but you can find their adoption story on my blog friends, Ready and Waiting the Gillette Adoption story.

I'm asking for all of my friends and family to please put them in your prayers. I believe that God works in miraculous ways, I believe that this family is meant to unite with this precious little girl.
And if you are feeling generous you can donate to their adoption, every little bit helps! Lets bring this girl home!

I'm Back....... Again!

Well it has been far too long! I can't believe the last time I posted was February! I lost the cord to my camera and figured once I found it I could update and upload.......well it was never found. Then on a trip to Idaho this summer said camera with 6 months worth of pictures was lost. So I'll sum it all up

February: Dominicks birthday, the Death of my Best Friends mother from Cancer
March: Saint Patricks Day Disney trip with the Downs Family
April: School field trips, Spring break
May: Mothers Day, Dominicks Baptism
June: School field trips, Trip to Disneyland with Randi and her boys, Kindergarten Graduation, Fathers Day
July: Long visit to see the Gillette Family in Idaho, then to Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, back home for a week, then back to NM and AZ.
August: Swimming, heat, swimming, beach, more trips I'm sure, my Birthday, a blur of a month....
September: Trip to AZ for a car and B/F's birthday, Paytons birthday, our 9th anniversary, school starting, another trip to Disney, Airshow, etc......

Frankly the entire summer is a complete blur, we were gone for most of it. It seems like we have been on the go constantly. I do have some pictures from a new camera that I will upload soon. Here are a few from a family photo shoot my cousin did Labor Day weekend.
We miss all of our friends in different states and hope we can be better at keeping in touch!
