I am so thankful for the country music stars today. I relate so much to their music. It doesn't hurt that 99% of them are hot...& Taylor & Carrie are just freakin drop dead gorgeous. I most of all love Taylor Swift. She is fun she knows exactly what to sing & what songs are the best. She is gorgeous & I just love her....and best of all you can understand EVERYTHING they say!!

These two go hand in hand. We go on so many trips to get Kam. I am thankful for the reliable car we have & perfect meeting spots like Flying J. I am thankful that we get to meet within an hours distance to get him. I am thankful for the good relationship we have with his mom, Mattie & the amazing mom she is! I am thankful that Trevor is such a good man to step up & be the dad Kam deserves. I love that little boy & am thankful he came into our lives.

I am thankful for life's little moments. I am a stay at home mommy, which to me is the best thing ever. I get to watch my little guys do everything for the first time & I am their best friend! (Ask Carter, he'll tell ya!) I am thankful for little moments like the boys nap time & watchin them sleep peacefully or times that my boys get to spend with their dad & when their cousins come to Idaho & we make & decorate cookies & when Carter finally decided he could play and have fun with his brother!

I always wanted to be a mom. I was so good with kids & everyone always asked me to babysit because the kids loved me. 3 months after being married we found out we were pregnant. It was by far the best day of my life. I became a mom that morning. I would never take back having my boys. I love them so much. They make my bad days better and they make my good days even better. Their smiles brighten up my hardest moments. I love being a mom, the most rewarding & toughest yet best thing I have ever done with my life.

I am so thankful that I got to grow up in a small town where everyone knew you & you wave to everyone you drive by. I am even more thankful that my husband loves it enough to want to live here so I get to raise my own boys here. Its just so comfortable to me. I love my hometown!

I am kind of partake to the DVR. I would definitely miss all my shows if it wasn't for my DVR. It is my life saver when Carter wakes up in the middle of night. I just turn on a movie & go back to sleep with him. It is my mommy time at night when the boys all go to sleep!

Kam has always taken the oldest brother role to heart. He is always so good at helping me out with the younger two. When Wyatt came along it became totally different. He is more willing to just feed him & helping with bum changes. I am so thankful that when he is home with us he will help me so I can get the laundry switched or the dishes done.

I love my zebra blanket. I snuggled under it with the kids & Diesel absolutely loves it. It is warm & just the right size to sit under on a cold day.

I would not survive some of my days if it wasn't for Mt. Dew. I have been known to be super onery or tired & someone will bring me a M.D. & instantly I am fine!! I don't understand the power it has over me but I absolutely love it!!

These are my downtime relaxers. I love these shows. It is the only pure hour I get at night uninterrupted by my little boys. These shows excite me, make me wanna dance again & sometimes make me cry. I love them!!

Messes...most of the time I have picked up these messes about 9 times a day. It's really annoying but then I think to myself...these are memories. My boys will remember being able to play & make messes instead of never getting to have fun. I am thankful to have a messy house with little boys who are making memories.

I know silly thing to be thankful for but I love my dog. Diesel is a rescue puppy & I don't know if that's why I love him so much but I do. My kids love him & he is so good to let Wyatt pull..tug..& pinch. He is so good..only thing he does is knock over the garbage if its down so that for sure has to be put up. We also can't leave blankets on the floor or he will snuggled up in them & we never know so we end up stepping on him. I love having a little snuggled buddy. I'm so happy we got him after Harley died.

::He Is How Old....::

His 1st Birthday
His 2nd Birthday
I can't believe he is 3! This little boy stole my heart the second that test said positive. I was so excited to experience pregnancy. I couldn't wait to feel the first kick, the first hiccup & hear his heartbeat. I knew from the get-go it was a boy. We had his name picked out pretty early because we just knew! We soon found out we were right! I can not express my love for him. We experienced first time mommy experiences together. I never knew I could love someone so much. It's really true what they say about never understanding love until you have a child. I am so entertained by this little guy. He has got personality like crazy. He is also one of the best behaved little boys, I rarely have to get mad at him. He is turning into a very protective big brother & is really beginning to like playing with his baby brother. Carter idolizes my brother & I adore the fact that he loves my family so much. We are so fortunate to live so close. I know that I will continue to be proud of him. He is smart & polite! I love him so much! Happy birthday my Carter Bug! Here are some fun birthday pictures!
His Captain Hook pirate'll soon see he is obsessed.
Go Diego Go Movie
Opening his big present from my parents & Braden. A Jake & The Neverland Pirates ship that talks.
Blowing out his candles
Playing with all his Jake toys. He got so many little figurines, 3 ships, & a Jake ship bathtub toy.... Obsessed...yes but its ok!!!

I am extremely grateful for the troops of our country. They were so strong to sacrifice their family life & go fight for our freedom. I am also thankful to the families of those soldiers...for putting their love & faith in the soldiers. I don't know if I would be able to let my husband go without knowing he'd come back safe. I am so thankful for our freedom in this country.

Today it snowed. I am so thankful for the moisture, even if it is just a little bit. I am also thankful for the father- son relationship that Trev & Carter have. I love that he will take him out to build a snowman.

I am so thankful I was blessed with grandparents who loved me so much. I have so many memories of us going down for the summer. I am so glad I was able to spend so much time with my grandma especially. I was so devastated to learn that grandma was battling cancer & a little over a year ago when she passed away I thought it was the worst thing. I soon found it is not....I now have my very own guardian angel. My grandpa has always been one the few men I look up to. I love him so much. He is such a strong man to be without his sweetheart.

These cartoons have saved my life some mornings. Bad sleepless nights are common at our house. I am thankful for cartoons that start early so my boys can watch them while I get a few extra minutes of sleep. Also, they keep my kids entertained when I have housework to do. One more thing is they are entertaining but they actually teach the kids how to count, colors, & other things!!

I am thankful for my husbands job. We have been laid off 3 times in the 4 years that we've been married. It's a scary thing to be laid off. I hate the feeling of not knowing. We just recently survived a lay-off at Kiewit. I am so thankful that my husband is such a hard worker so he was able to keep the job that supports our family.

I am extremely greatful for my family. I love them so much. I don't know what I would have done without my mom & sister when I had my boys. They have helped out so much. Braden is the best uncle to my boys & they idolize him. My dad is my hero. He has worked so hard to provide for his family his entire adult life. He taught me to be a great & hard worker. My family is amazing.

Carter Trevor Mecham Born November 11, 2009 He began this adventure I call Mommyhood for me! I love this boy. He can turn any bad day good with one of his silly little remarks. He has always been able to make me laugh & he has the best manners I have ever seen in a {almost} 3 year old.
Wyatt Lee Mecham Born February 11, 2012 He worried me while he was growing in my belly & gave us a rough start. He is now teaching me patience because he is a happy bright eyed baby @ 7 a.m. I am not a morning person at all...I'm learning!
I could not ask for better boys!! I love them so much.
