Spring Moab trip being planned

My posse and I will going to Moab in the late part of March. I'm hoping to drive Hell's Revenge. Go to TrailDamage.com to read trail details. Youtube has some great videos for that trail too.

Any suggestions on other fun trails?

What makes a big sister do what she does?

I gave my youngest boy (age 2) a strip of thick masking tape to keep him busy for a few moments. He gave it to one of his big sisters (age 10). She then tapes his wee wee to his butt.

He walks up to me. I gasp!!

I then have to remove it. Gasp again as it pulls the skin. EECCKK!

It didn't hurt him.

So I want to know why something like this even crossed my daughter's mind. I am again clueless when it comes to her.

Lesson learned, don't give tape to MY children.

Every time one of my children has a birthday, turning a year older, I get all sad. "My babies aren't babies anymore." I cry.

My oldest girls which are twins turned 10 yesterday. 10!


12 days ago, my oldest boy turned 4. Already!?

And my youngest (for only a very short time) turned 2... 25 days ago. Can that be true? Is he really 2?

I cry a lot every October.

I'm back...


Since my last entry, I have realized that I miss this. I miss blogging. I can't count how many times I wanted to add something but I then would rebuke myself. I would hear myself says "Keep your word. You said you would go back after the baby."

Well baby isn't here yet. And I just can't seem to hold back any longer.


Hello. Let me introduce myself again.

I'm QueenB. A 38 1/2 week pregnant mom with 4 other kids, a great hubby, living in Colorado.

My due date in in 10 days.

I'm back. Finally.

Nasty run ins with nasty neighbors

About 1 1/2 hrs ago Chris was being pushed around by a drunk neighbor who was trying to pick a fight. Both of these men are dads and both of these men can't stand the others family. Our 4 kids are prohibited to play with his 4 kids for the past 2 yrs.

Chris could of walloped him and he wanted too! I was impressed with my man's self control because I lack it when it comes to other adults lying in my face about my family. I was egging this father on. I dared him to hit me with my own temper. I was not going to show fear or back down. Chris had to step in front of me to keep this dad from hitting me.

I was not behaving at my best. I like everyone else have an ugly side. Picking a fight with my husband and lying - saying that we beat our kids makes me angrier than a mad hornet. WHAT Lies!!!

And yes this father would have kicked my butt but I was so mad I didn't care.

It started 2 yrs ago after about 6 months of trying to befriend them. The have triplets who are 6 months older than my twins. I was excited that they moved in and the twins would have friends their age. I soon realized that those kids are... let's just say my daughters can't and don't want to play with them.

Other neighbors called the police. They were on our side trying to get this guy to go home. The police came. We could have pressed charges because of the dad's pushing but what would that solved.

It's so sad that we have to endure all this. I hope and pray (I sound like a hypocrite I know) that my daughters will grow character, learn that people can be ugly. I hope they come out on top. That they will learn to be self controlled like their father, to turn the cheek, that actions cause reactions.

I hope I too can learn to keep me mouth shut. I hope I can grow from this too!
