Crew turns one!

Crew turns one today.  I am sitting in bed watching the snow softly fall out my master bedroom window and I can't help but remember the beautiful day he was born exactly one year ago.  I am in awe at the gratitude I feel for this little soul.  He has blessed our family in ways I can't put to words.  After I had Kellen, Steve said, "OK, hun that's three boys... can we call it good?" I knew in that moment that there was another little soul that would bless our family and I was right.

His name is Crew Richard Hart!
Happy Birthday little buddy we love you very much!

I woke up the morning of February 25th 2010, and Steve rolled over and asked how I was feeling.  I started to cry when he looked at me.  I had endured a quiet night of labor pains that kept me awake all night long. When the light started to chase away the dark of that night, I knew we would be meeting our little baby that day.  My tears were tears of exhaustion and gratitude..... I had made it to delivery date.  He was officially 36 weeks now and they would not stop the labor if I started labor again.  I told Steve that it was time to go to the hospital.  2 hours and 2 pushes later we met our new little baby boy!  It was love at first sight!  Here are pics from day # 1!

If spring came but once a century instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all the hearts to behold the miraculous change.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I am so grateful for the beauties of the earth around me and for the opportunity I have to be living in such a beautiful home and beautiful place on God's green earth.  I am grateful for season's and I know that we have seasons in life as well. I am just coming out of a dark cold winter (it was cozy) but happy for the new life of spring. 

I love my family dearly.  My four boys and my beautiful husband....and all my friends and family who bless my path along it's way! 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart~

A perfect Presidents Day!

We had a such a fun presidents day today.  It had nothing to do with George Washington or his birthday, but I'm grateful he was born so my kids didn't have to go to school.  Steve and I got to play with our monkey's on the ski slopes! Quality family time is what it is all about!

Mr. Chaz

I totally had one of those perfect mommy moments where I looked at all my little boys conquering that cold mountain all the while  having the times of their lives.

This one wasn't from today. 
 It was a month or so ago, but I felt bad that Crew wasn't apart of this post! 
 Isn't he the cutest baby Ever?

Mr. Kaden

Momma and Chaz's Ski's crossed on our ride up the lift!

Snuggling for warmth! 

I would take this over
ribbons, bows, and tutu's any day!

After we we tucked the kids into bed...
A total workout miracle occurred!

Steve totally did Yoga with me!!!
For my birthday Steve got me a new yoga mat..blocks...and a band!
He also brought home this AM and PM yoga DVD that just stretches you out
and helps you meditate and relax in the PM.  LOVED IT!



Gently stretches the hips, thighs, and ankles
Calms the brain and helps relieve stress and fatigue
Relieves back and neck pain when done with head and torso supported

Then we finished off the night with THE BACHELOR a very guilty pleasure of mine!

Better now then never.

     I have always been a career wife and then a mother. This year, I have decided, I have that backwards.  My New Years Resolution was to do more of what makes me feel better.  What makes me feel better is being a mother that is excited and present emotionally when the monkey's (I have 4 of them) get home from school.  Being able to cook a meal I actually thought about and didn't "wing" with the leftovers that were in the refrigerator at the time.  Being the type of wife that thinks first about what would make my husband blush....and then actually doing it!

     I also love to write and haven't even found the time to return emails to loved ones whom have reached out from all over the world!  I am fascinated with health and well being....and this year I am choosing to be fascinated with it enough to do the Yoga I crave, eat the healthy foods I love, and work out with my husband. 

    I also have been wanting to scrapbook my wedding...that was ten years ago, and the 4 children that have come to this earth and have chosen me as their mom.  After 10 years and four kids I have  no scrapbooks, and I feel like a scattered brain work-a-holic!

    So, I am choosing to make a shift.  I know it's February not January but I had work to do! HAHAHAHA!  In this blog I plan to "scrapbook my life" starting now!  I apparently am a terrible scrapbook-er but I am intensely sentimental so I will slowly catch my self up from my wedding on.  I will reminisce the good old days while staying present and grounded in the day I'm in!  I am so excited to gain control of my life!  It took me a bad case of Bronchitis to bring me to my knees and to be still enough in a moment to create this blog! So, namaste to my lungs thank you for being sick!

    This blog will contain yummy healthy recipes and work-out tips as I happen upon them. My favorite quote of the day from one of my they always have something to say that I feel should be written down. I hope inspiration will grace this page every once in a while with thoughts and ideas as I have them.

    If you are reading this....I hope this to not be a waste of your time,  Because love will fill every one of my entries. Amy, my name means "LOVE" and I hope to be able to embody it.

    Cheers to a beautiful 2011!
