Jonathan Turn's 8

So Oct 16 has come and my Jonathan turns 8yrs old oh what a wonderful thing he is so happy he went and talked to the Bishop last night and came home with a smile from ear to ear... We asked him who he wants to talk and he asked Lorenzo and I and I looked at Lorenzo thinking no way will he want to but nope he looked at Jonathan and said ok.. I was happy no one looked at me because I had tears in my eyes!! After Jonathan we will only have Jadon left that will be 4 down 1 to go crazy when you think of it Jon has done all of our's even mine! What a wonderful feeling jonathan can't wait and it just brings me back to my day when I got to do the same thing. So I will make cupcakes as asked by jonathan for his class then make a cake asked my jonathan... And then make him wheatever he wants for dinner crazy but it is his day Oh how this sweet little boys brings me so much joy and yes some pain lol but I love his hugs and kisses and I love you mom. So Happy Birthday to Him.....


Okay so it's been awhile since I have wrote a post so here it goes so this last weekend I went to Albuq for my Best Friends Birthday and to help my mom with my dad. I had a really good time but I didn't sleep so well so when I came home I was burned out. But the funny thing is my truck was just fine coming home in till the next day it was acting alittle off so I drop Jonathan off in the morning then pick him up. Every things okay in till I go to get Lorenzo and it wont start nothing it's dead~ well come to find out my battery is gone. If God was not watching over me then I don't know what would have happened I could have been stuck on the side of the road somewhere and my phone could or could not have worked.

So we got that fixed and then out of No where Jadon becomes sick well come to find out he has the Swine Flu with a 102.2 fever last night now some might say well its going to happen and everything will be okay and yes I think it well be Jon gave him a great blessing last night and I cried it was so good, but I get so scared not only for my other children but for Jadon I just can't seem to get over that he is a big and healthy boy now I still see him as 2 lbs but he is far from it.....

So what did I do today well I cleaned and cleaned to the point that my hands are dry every time one of the kids or even me and Jon get sick I get in this mode of OCD and I wont stop in till I feel every inch is clean now I don't know if that's good or bad but it makes me feel better! Some times I even wonder if I clean enough or did I do something wrong or not enough to keep them from getting sick.....

Oh how my mind works I know kids get sick and it's no big deal but I hate to watch my babies like that and plus I can't get sick my body will not fight anything off it fights itself. So as of right now we are all staying in till everything is back to normal.. And I know if you have ever been to my house I'm sure you guys are going oh my goodness but I have this thing about everything being where it should and just plain CLEAN....

Where Have I been??

Man oh man it has been forever since I have put any blogs up I use to do this all the time but I got on facebook and those games have me hooked. So what is New in the Newman home well lets see The Boys started back at school so I only have Jadon which is nice in till the boys come home then the fights start, Lorenzo is now in football and Loves it and Daddy is in heaven just watching Lorenzo and Jon makes me smile.. He is now in Jr high which i can't get past he's not little anymore where has the time gone? Jonathan (little) is now in 2ND grade and loves that he will be 8 on Oct. 16Th so we will looking forward to that we asked him the other day who he would like to speak the day he gets baptized and he said you Mom and you Lorenzo and it just made my heart smile, Lorenzo just looked up at his younger brother and said ok I will... those sweet little moments remind me of how much love I have for my boys... Mr. Jadon oh my he is talking up a storm and is getting into everything you know there was a time when I thought jadon would always be small well I was soooooo wrong he is not my baby any more he is wearing a size 4 already. I just don't know why life seems to be going by so fast I mean my kids are getting big and Jon and I are going on 10 yrs it's all so crazy! All I know is I am one happy Mother and Wife!

As far as me I will be going to school for photography soon and I can't wait and on top of that Jon's father has asked me to start a web page and run it for him I was shocked but I can work right here at home... My dreams are all coming true I can be a stay at home Mother and work what else could I ask for.

Mr. Jon well he is hard at work and getting ready for the holidays to start this is always the busiest months for him but he wouldn't have it any other way. And like I said he is Lorenzo's biggest fan right now it's like he has passed the torch to his oldest son..

Here's some pics of the boys this year..

My Mother always said...

My Mother would always say wait in till you have your own Children, I always wondered what she meant.. Oh how I wish I was a better daughter lol I always knew I wanted my first to be a boy and there was Lorenzo, then I wanted to have a girl out came Jonathan okay lets try one more time Girl? Nope Here came Jadon(way to fast)! But after I had my first I asked my Mother how can I love anyone else like I love him? She said it will just come you can do it, So when Jonathan came I asked the Lord please help me I don't know how to love these two boys the same then I realized I didn't have to love them the same all I had to do was love them with every inch of me. And then Jadon I cry sometimes because the Love I have for these three little boys is so strong and so real it some times hurts This Love is like no other!And I also know why I have these boys and what I have learned there is a reason for everything and I know without them I would be nothing. And now I know how our Father In Heaven feels with all of us....


So here is lorenzo going from 6th grade to 7th man my boy did so good I don't know if I could have had anymore kids because its to hard now not to cry everytime I see my boys accomplish their goals with not only school but with Church. I told Jon when I watched lorenzo come in for the awards I wanted to just break down I could tell my once little son was scared, Last year he took the TAKS Test 3 times before passing and that was so hard to watch...Mind you they don't teach the same things in Albuq,NM so Lorenzo was unsure of what these TAKS test were about.

So when it came to this year he was determined to pass the first time!!! And let me just say I loved all three of his teachers they not only helped lorenzo but they were always in contact with me which was great. So we walked in me and Jadon and my best friend and his home room teacher comes up to me and hugs me and tells me how lorenzo did he was ONE point from getting a, A in Math TAKS test and ONE point away from being on Honor Roll.. We both started to cry she said that because I cared so much and supported everything they were doing with him it payed off. And I say WE all did those teachers went beyond there duties to help Lorenzo! And he DID it he got a, A in reading TASKS TEST and like I said one point away from all A's.....

So as I watched him because he did not know anything I wanted to run and grab him and say "YOU DID IT" all you baby... so as my tears came and I watched them call his name I looked in my son's eyes and he knew how proud I was and thats all he needed was to see how happy I was for him... So after the awards we went to get his folder and hugged his teacher once more and she said how proud and happy she was for him, we started to walk away and I stopped and said I loved him and how happy I was for him. He looked up at me with tears in his and said "Mom I did good I did really good" And all I could do was hug him with tears rolling down my face.

As I realize he's not my Baby any more....I ask myself if I can do this 2 more times with my other boys and two more times with Jon's Girls.. People want to know where my weak spots are. All you have to do is look at these 3 boys and one Guy in this house and then you will know! Way to GO my RENZO!!

Let us Open Our Eyes

This is something we should all read at least once a week
Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio
"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me... It is the most-requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled
over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone...
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay check.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ’In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Its estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'. I'm in the 7%.
Remember that I will always share my spoon with you! Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves!

"May you love as long as you live and live as long as you love"

So the Big news

Jon was called to be the 2ND Counselor in the Bishopric today I was in tears and so were his parents I was so proud to see him up there right before they told him to go sit up there I asked him if he was scared and he said yes.. Now if you know Jon he is not one to get scared about much of anything, but this was one of those things that he felt he was not ready for..

Let me just say this (and by no means is this because he is my husband) Jon is such a big loving person, with a heart of gold he would do anything for anyone without question he See's so many things that I overlook and he is my rock, soul mate and best friend and I know that Our Father put him where he should be...

Jon's parents came so that his Dad could do all the stuff after and I cried, bishop, his Mother, his Dad and Jon and there was some other people in there.Jon being the only Brother in his family to go on to a Mission or be active in anyway I'm sure you could understand how his parents felt, When they were doing this I went and sat by Jon's Mother and held her hand and we cried together.

Many people just see this as oh well he is just 2ND Counselor but I see it as growth and faith and the love and blessing that Jon has been given! I knew when I met him that he was great guy but each day that goes by makes me love him more and more what a great example he is to our kids the boys were so happy!

So as I watch my oldest past sacrament each Sunday and now watch my Husband sitting beside the Bishop I realize how lucky I really am.. And we should all count them one by one!
