Accepting some Awards

I received 5 awards (same one twice by two different bloggers) and I want to accept them and then pass them on. I'm so privileged to have been though of. I will start with the first award.

This one was given to me from Tracey at 4 my 3 Suns. Tracey has three beautiful boys and is happily married and she takes really nice pictures as well as tells about her everyday life.

I also received this award from Lonestar at Everyday Adventures. She also has three beautiful boys and they are always entertaining us.

This award is meant for people who are positive, show gratitude, and of course: make lemons out of lemonade!
The rules for this award are that you post the graphic for it, write a post that links back to the giver, and then pass it on to up to seven others.
Leave a comment on the blogs that get the award, so they know what's happened.I'm passing this one along to:

Sherri at A Season of Thanksgiving
Pam at The Bird Flock
Kristi at Living Life in TX
Lacia at Outnumbered By Kids
Amy at Kaden and Angel Ava
Julie at We Are Well Blessed
Rachel at Love for 9

Both of these awards were given to me by Tracey at 4 My 3 Suns

The rules for these awards are:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

These two awards are being passed off to :
Rachel at Love for 9
Amiee at Kyle /Amiee/Ava
Carey at Dream Big
Andrea at Si, Ty, and Levi
Colleen at Falletti Spaghetti
Kaci at Kaci's Life
Angela at Phoenix
Lacey at Jaxson's Fight
Amy at Kaden and Angel Ave
Gail at God's Will....Our Hearts Desire
This last one was given to me by Kristi at Living Life in TX and Autism Blessings. Kristi actually has three blogs. Living Life is about her and her everyday things, and Autism Blessings is a diary of her wonderful son who has autism.
It's about confessing your mommy sins and forgiving yourself for your fault and moving on.As with all bloggy awards there are rules:
1) Admit that ONE thing you feel awful about involving being a mom. Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are NO LONGER allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom!
2)To remind yourself that you ARE a good mom, list SEVEN things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you. These are the things to remind yourself of EVERY DAY that you rock!
3)Send this to FIVE other Moms of the Year that deserve forgiveness and a reminder that they, too, are the best moms they can be!!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you!
So I will admit that sometimes I'm not patient enough with my boys and really feel bad for that. I'm trying to be more patient so that I don't lose my temper so quickly. After all, I am dealing with two teenagers right?
Seven things that I love about my boys are,
1) They are loving (when they want to)
2) Just seeing their beautiful faces first thing in the morning.
3) I love watching Coltan and Cody playing soccer and sitting on the sidelines being the best soccer mom ever.
4) I love watching Carson learn new things almost daily.
5) I love when I see Coltan and Cody doing things on their own. Shows me they are growing up.
6) I love that every night I get to kiss all my boys goodnight and snuggle with Carson. (since the other two are two big for that now. :-) )
7) I love knowing that my three boys love me unconditionally. That means a lot.
So now the five bloggers that I'm passing this off to is
Sherri at A Season of Thanksgiving
Tracey at 4 My 3 Suns
Colleen at Falletti Spaghetti
Amiee at Kyle/Amiee/Ava
Danette at Everyday Adventures
