6 years with my love!

Caleb and I have been married for 6 years today, and together 8! Our relationship has grown so much since those first days and years! We continue to grow and learn from each other every day:) I thought it would be fun to go on a walk down memory lane:)
2009 When we first met and I was over-tanned and we were both over bleached! Just kidding I loved my hair!

These two baby nuggets got pregnant in that same year! 
We were blessed with our baby girl in 2010!


July 9, 2011 we got married! 



This is a HORRIBLE picture but the only one I could find from 2012!! Where are my eyelashes and why is your eye sliding off of your face...

 In 2013 we welcomed our Soy Soy!!! Sweet, sweet nugget!
 Sawyers first birthday. March 27, 2014. Little did I know I was pregnant with Atticus here:)
 Atticus was born at the end of 2014 and this is Fall of 2015!
2016-Daddy looking fine as hell! We went on our honeymoon for our 5th wedding anniversary! I think we will go on another long one for our 10th:) At this point in our lives I cannot be away from the kids that long! It damn near killed me! 


2017 at my sweet Audrey's wedding! Me eating Caleb's face...wearing my favorite dress in the whole wide world! Its from Express and apparently they cant keep it in stock so go, run, NOW and buy it. 

Every year gets better and better, and you get more handsome every day! Age looks good on you babe;)

Happy Anniversary to you, my stinky man-man! I love you! 
Love, 
Kate

INSANITY!

HOLY BAJOLI! The past five days have been the busiest I think I have ever had....It all started Wednesday night.
My amazing sister, Jenny, took all 3 of my babies for a sleepover! Correct me if I'm wrong, but since Atticus was born we haven't had anyone take all three of them while we were home. My mom and MIL have watched them while we traveled or went away to a concert, which was absolutely amazing of them, but we have never stayed home and had them all three gone! The original plan was to organize the house while they were with my sister. Then I got this insane brilliant idea that we should paint the kids rooms and move them all around, and clean, and organize all in less than 24 hours!!! 

While the kids were gone we:
  • Painted the boys new room (which saying "paint" is an understatement to what Maddy and I did...video to come shortly!)
  • Painted Laneys room
  • laid carpet in the basement
  • Moved our whole room downstairs
  • Moved Sawyers room to our old room
  • organized the toys
  • Organized and cleaned the house (as much as I could)
It. Was. Exhausting. 

My babes came home Thursday night and my cousin Ciara's sweet kiddos came to spend the night Thursday night too! (per my request!) Thankfully Ciara took her babes to the zoo on Thursday so they were just as tired as the Christensens! All 8 of us were asleep by 9:00!

We woke up on Friday morning and had to get ready for Laney's party! I took the girls to Costco and Joanns and we got home to start prepping! 

Our girl date! When we have the Hathaway's we are the Brady Bunch! 3 girls and 3 boys! 
Laney had a great 7th birthday party! She wanted to keep it small and invited her cousins and neighbors:)

I am such a shit show that she had a 5 and a 2 on her cake....5+2=7. That works right??
We made real leis and had cutie grass skirts! I envisioned doing so much more at her party like making coconut scented candles and stuff like that, but once it rolled around I was barely hanging on! 
When Saturday rolled around we somehow squeezed in time to go the farmers market, swimming and then came home to throw a "surprise" party for Alec and do fireworks with the kids!

 Thankfully my sweet neighbors gave me the most amazing Turkish espresso and I was good to go! Seriously, its magical.

I am finally feeling a sense of calm after all of that crazy! Now I have got to put MY room together and finish painting it! We will get there! 

I will post a video soon of the boys room!!!!

Crazy Cats

I still need help on a new blog name!! I'm trying to get my witty husband to come up with something for me:) I've never met anyone who is as good with words as he is! Seriously. He needs to write a book. Maybe someday...

We had a little makeup sesh with my budding artist! Look at that adorable toothless grin! I could eat her! All of my children have commented on my bad teeth since Laney lost her tooth! The boys were really confused about Lane having a missing tooth. Atticus calls it her broken tooth, so he pointed to my janky tooth and said "oh, mommy broken tooth" bahaha honest little buggers!

The Artist! She has the most beautiful skin!
My before!
 Anybody want to claim this sweatshirt? Mom? Maddy? Alec? I just washed it! Then I wore it....but its still clean-ish!

After!
She was so nervous to do my eyeliner, but I showed her some q-tip magic to clean it up and get a straight-ish line:)

Sawyer had a blast, and got a makeover too:) He kept saying he was Kylee, which is our neighborhood friend who always wears bows:) FREAKING LOVE HIM!!

Here we go again!

I'm here. I plan on staying this time. Its funny how I have waves of vlogging and blogging. I obviously suffer from seasonal depression, because it tends to stop in the colder months. I really really love making blogs and vlogs. It boosts my confidence, and I love to talk so being able to write out all of the stuff I want to tell the world is much more constructive than blabbing everyone's ear off:)

 Its been 8 months since my last VLOG and 2 YEARS since my last blog post....Lots of lost time to make up for!

In my last post Laney was FIVE!! She is about to turn SEVEN!!!!!!!! And start second grade:( She is an absolutely brilliant and beautiful young lady! It is so amazing to watch these tiny humans and what there natural abilities are. Laney has my super sense of smell (its a blessing and a curse) she can smell rain before it starts!! Its the craziest thing. 



Conversation on Fathers day with Caleb
Laney: I think its going to rain.
Caleb: checks his weather app Nope my phone says its not.
Laney: Well that's not what the earth says!

Bahahaha I just love her fiesty little spirit!! Oh, and it rained like an hour later! She is amazing.


My Sawyer dude is four now:) He was just barely two in my last post! I talked about getting him in to speech therapy ,which i did:), and he LOOOOOVED! He has been tested and his speech is on track for his age:) Sawyer has amazing focus. He loves to just sit and do activities. Be it Legos, playdoh or video games, which he is a freaking pro at! We have had to cut that off:) He would sit and play all day if we let him! His favorite thing is to make his siblings laugh. Which sometimes gets him trouble because he says bad words that make Laney and Atticus crack up. The other day it was penisbutt...we had a loooooong talk about when its ok to talk about penises. But seriously try not to laugh when your baby is saying penisbutt and laughing hysterically:) 

My little Atticus. He was five months in my last post! He is now two and half:) He has an incredible vocabulary, loves to be the center of attention, and loves affection. He is the biggest snuggler, hugger, and kisser you will meet! He is obsessed with Laney and the boys are finally getting along! Atticus wants to do, look and say everything like Sawyer. It just took two years for Sawyer to realize that baby brothers are not so bad:) He has no fear of anything and this has landed him in the ER 3 times now....Stitches in his head, stitches in his finger and a dresser to the nose. I watch him like a hawk. 

Caleb and I are going on our 6th wedding anniversary and we are closer than ever! We have had some big changes lately but I'll take a whole post to talk about that:)

I am so happy to be back!!

New name

I need to come up with a new blog name!!! I need some input:) I was trying to think of weird things that I say {which is a lot} and the first thing was Fiesty Pants Christensen :) I kind of love it. When my kids are being all wild I usually call them that:) seemed fitting. I am the nicknamiest person I know, but draw a blank trying to think of a new name!

Laney got tubes last Thursday! She was a CHAMP! So good before and after! I did get a lump in my throat when they were wheeling her away on the hospital bed:( but the procedure was less than 10 mins! Thank goodness. She was awake when I went back to see her:) I'll add a few pics on the bottom:) I'm on my phone right now so I can't choose their location:/

Sawyer is starting to speak more! He repeats us but not very clearly. I am going to get him evaluated for speech therapy soon:) He would love it! He just loves people and playing!
One of his favorite people is Laney:) still not crazy about his baboo.<-----his name for Atty. Atticus is also a huge Laney fan:)

In Atticus news, he has two teeth! Insane! He is 5 months old! Crazy,crazy.
•he sits up assisted with the boppy
•he gets into the crawling position every time I lay him down:( I'm so not ready for that. Neither is my house!
•he still sleeps next to my bed in his pack n play.
•and wakes OFTEN to eat
He is definitely my biggest baby yet:) We will probably start foods soon:)

News from me? Not much. My mind is spinning with crafty ideas and home improvement! I have got to do a project soon! Or write this stuff down! Posting on here helps my brain relax a lot. Getting down the memories so my lousy memory doesn't have to hold them anymore.

Welp, the pictures are not working😪 I will add them to my next post!

Goodnight! Xoxo

Just found this draft!
Written August 2014


My last post was August 13th 2013. It frustrates me so much that it has been a year, but the only one to blame is me. :( Not a lot has changed in a year. My sweet Laney is four and my big Soy boy is 1! We found out a few days after Sawyers first birthday that we were expecting again! Just a few weeks ago we found out its a BOY:) BB#2 is due December 14th.

My girl starts preschool on the 20th😁 I'm a nervous wreck! I hope she loves it and thrives!! She is only going two half days a week and I am freaking out!! She is such a sweetie, and has really started playing with other kids a lot this summer😊

Sawyer is just the sweetest boy. He started walking at 14 months and says quite a few words.
Da da
Mamamama
Uh-oh
All done
Hot
Na-na (Laney)

One year and 8 months later....

Oh it feels so good to write!!!! I have not posted since August 2013..... I feel so much guilt about that and get overwhelmed thinking about catching up so then I don't post.....which helps NOTHING! I'm over it. I NEED to write! I think about it ALL the time and I love looking back at all of my posts:) Well, tomorrow I am starting something new. It's new to me not new to the world. I am starting my day off by physically writing down three things I am thankful for. I love to be happy and peppy and hyper and loud, but it does not come easily. I suffer from depression which in turn makes me really hard on myself. I'm over that shit. I need to change this attitude and I am the only one who can do it!!! Mmmm I'm snuggling my ba-boo (Sawyers name for Atticus) seriously life is so good if you let it!! Phew. I need a new blog name😳😳 I've had a few more babies since I started this here blog. I have so many exciting things in my life right now that I want to write about!! Atticus's birth story (which I have not written because I didn't want to scare anyone😂😂) Laney is in school, Sawyer is 2, I have an amazing job! So much shittle I want to remember:) ok I got my jumping off point-tomorrow I will write something with substance❤️❤️
Have a glorious night!!
