Masey Man is 2!!!

And now onto the happy things in life that dont involve lies and deceit!!

Mason Michael Nye is 2!!

I cannot BELIEVE its been 2 years since I had my 3rd baby boy....actually, he turned 2 on Monday, June 8th.....and Im just now able to sit down for more than 5 minutes at a time to post about it, lol!! Thats what happens when you have a 2 year old!! :) Hes such a stud - talks ALL the time, sometimes incesintly! And smart?! I tell ya....the kid does things that suprise us every day - things you wouldn't think a 2 year old could do alone! Takes apart computers, helps daddy work on the car, uses his vacuum to help mama vacuum the house.....just an all around joy to have! We had a nice little celebration at home Monday night.....a few friends over for 'sgetti (Mases favy dinner!!) and cake - he played until he could barely move at the park with his big brothers and some of our friends' kids, in fact I think he slept in wicked late Tuesday morning after a busy day of playing as the birthday boy!!



Lies, deceipt and disgust....

.....some of you know I have a select few blogs I follow on a daily basis - those are referenced to the right of each of my posts, with links anyone can click on to view. Recently, I found that the "April Rose" blog that I have followed for months now, was a blog filled with lies. Lies about a non-existent baby with Trisomy 13.....a Christian woman who was unmarried and pregnant, carving her path once again with the Lord as she looked for forgiveness for being pregnant and unmarried. She blogged her struggles with the Christian community being unwilling to accept her with her circumstances, she solicited prayers and support falsely through a community of readers and "friends" that were %110 willing to give it.

To those who I asked for prayers and support, I both thank you and apologize. I feel like Ive been duped, taken advantage of and naive all in the same respect. Ive included this woman and her fictional child in my nightly prayers for quite some time now. Ive emailed her on countless occasions offering support and a "shoulder" to cry or lean on via the virtual world online......its sickening to think that one person could lie about something so emotional.....and touch many people who are struggling with such a thing truly in their own lives. Sick....just sick. Nonetheless, my apologies to the few readers I have specific to my blog - I am naive and did not mean to spread my naivity to you all.....

Nothing new to post - still here - still surviving. :) Ill have more to post soon Im sure. Tonight, however, I am in search of my Labs that have been missing since last night when the kids didn't latch the gate properly. We are a wreck. We've done nothing but search for them today, make signs, call the shelters, call vets and plain just worry. Pray they return safely - the Nye5 is a somber house right now.

Please pray

As some of you know, I follow a blog from a family Ive never met, and likely never will. Their blog is about their sweet, little daughter - KayleighAnne Freeman who has struggled and clung to life since her first I had a chance to catch up on the past few days, only to find that Kayleigh has taken a turn for the worst. Please take a moment and click on the button to your right, and read through their recent trials with Kayleigh's health. Unfortunately, the outcome is not looking good at all. In fact, it sounds as though she will not return to a healthy parent should have to go through as much as the Freemans have, but as we all know God does not give us too much to handle at once. That being said, when you say your prayers tonight or while you're in church tomorrow, please say a prayer for Kayleigh. Ask for strength and health. Ask the Lord to help her parents make it through this time right now - ask for Him to give them strength as they face the possibility of making the worst decision in the world - to have to lose their daughter in the earthly form and allow God to take her home. I sit here and sob to myself as my heart aches from them, just aches as I know they are in the most pain a parent can feel. Please, please pray for them and for sweet, little miss KayleighAnne Freeman....she truly is a miracle from God.

Sometimes the stress of it all....

.....just makes me want to crawl into a corner and hide, though the real world does not let you do so.

I have always giggled (not maliciously of course) when I've received emails or invitations from friends and other family members who "blog". Never thinking I, myself, would be a blogger - I would bookmark said blogs and follow each in efforts to keep up with those close to me. Recently, as I follow blogs of people I don't know and may not ever meet I find myself putting my feet in the shoes of some fellow bloggers. One in particular makes me ache inside and wish I could reach out into the real world and offer my physical support, care and shoulder for her tears. There is a link to her blog ("Praying for April Rose") on the right hand side of my blog should you find yourself interested in reading up on 'B' and her unborn April Rose. That being said, tonight as I navigated my way to her site looking for an update, I found myself immersed in her writings about her feelings regarding her unborn baby girl and her thoughts/feelings and perspective about the Lord. I found myself thinking of several things while I read through her most recent post from today. One of those being how when I think things are at the worst they could be for me and mine - compared to someone else, it is truly not so bad. 'B', is currently being told she may never have the chance EVERY mother should have - holding her newborn child for the first time post leaving the womb. Her daughter faces many challenges with her health both inside the womb and outside should the Lord allow her the chance to live on Earth. While I feel as though things in my world are at their worst, I know my life and our circumstances could be much worse. I ache inside for 'B'. While I've never been faced with the same trials and testing of my faith, many of you know I went through something along the same lines. I have my own angel baby in heaven that the Lord chose to bring home to him. That being the case, it brings up the second thing I found myself mulling over while I read through 'B's blog tonight. She speaks of praying for a miracle and how that is somewhat vague in terms of what "her" miracle (s) are. She broke things down into what she believes she wants for both her and April Rose. And as I read through her testament, I found myself questioning those things I pray for. I pray for different things each night and I have a set (as I like to call them) of prayers that are a constant each day/night that I speak to Him about. I found myself wondering if the things that I ask/request/pray for are also too vague. I have asked for my own miracles and even then most likely didn't put my faith/heart into those prayers as I'm not even sure I believe in the theory of miracles or maybe that my requests are far more than a miracle. As I have spent the last 9-12mths of my life trying to figure out my relationship with Him, I've come to realize that during that time I've never really fully given myself to Him. I know He can see into my heart and knows who I truly am inside. But it hit me tonight just like that "ton of bricks" cliche' everyone says.....that I still feel lost at times when it comes to my relationship with Him because I've never given myself to Him, wholeheartedly and %100. I believe I've told myself that I thought I had, but deep down I never did. I put up a facade and apparently a convincing one at that because I managed to pull the wool over my own eyes, lol.

Most of you who know me, know I didn't grow up in a super religious family. My grandmother, who recently passed away suddenly, was a very religious person. We would go to church on the Sundays we "happened" to be with her and on all major holidays. But that was basically all the religion I was exposed to as a child. That being the case, I have ALWAYS believed in Him - but never truly pushed myself to form a relationship with Him outside of the forced trips to church I attended with my parents. And now as I grow older and gain wisdom, I find myself searching for that special relationship with him that I never had growing up. I guess another cliche' comes to mind with regard to that; Better late than never. Anyways, long rambling short - I've worked on my own and have begun to form my relationship with the Lord and by way of reading 'B's blog, I think I have found the way to my own personal relationship with Him. So, B, should you ever read through my ramblings here, please know that I thank you. Your willingness to share your life and beliefs have helped to point me in the direction that I have needed to make my way into the relationship with Him that I have known I needed......

Whew....that was alot and it took me forever to type all this out, lol. I think the above post is the most I've ever written about my thoughts regarding church and religion. I believe that I'm still the same person I've always been and will continue to be - my heart and soul, however, are going through some changes - a make over of sorts - and I think that this new found relationship will only better my growth as a person/adult. So to those who have read this far, thank you. Tonights post was brought on by a multitude of different stressors that I am faced with, many that can be fixed only by myself and my own choices - but it truly took my reading through anothers trials to see some things that were likely sitting right in front of me the whole time.

So I will end my long winded post by saying that I am very grateful for my family, my husband, all my friends, the things I have been provided with each day and for Him. For His ways, His reasons and for the stregnth He helps to give me each day.

Good night all. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

A lovely weekend indeed!! :)

My sister and her kids stayed the night with us last night....woke up to all the kids' hustle and bustle today, lol.....some might be annoyed - I, on the other hand, had a nice nights sleep so it was ok to wake up to all 5 of them looking for breakfast. :) We all hung out today and did as little as was very enjoyable. Loud and relaxing, lol - if thats even possible....hehehe.

The Nye5 hopes you all had a nice, relaxing weekend as well!! :) Thanks for reading!!

TGIF Baby!!

TGIF = Woohooo!!

Thank goodness this week is over. I've had massive headaches most of the week. Its been about 3 months since Ive had a spell like this. Unfortunately, this is about right on schedule for what I deal with headache wise.....

J was out of school this week and B had half days....both are off all next week. So do you know what THAT means??!!?? Mama Nye gets to sleep in and I don't have to get up to take B into school!! Thank God for small miracles, lol!! hehehehe....I appreciate the small things in life in case you haven't noticed. teehee

Other than that, this week has been fairly uneventful. The regular schedule with the kids and their activities. Baseball season is just around the corner, so we spent some time preparing for that. Big Papa Pually will, of course, be coaching B's 6th grade team. And this year J is doing the T-Ball!! Yay! He's been talking about it ALL year long, lol.....hes absolutely stoked to play. Hes watched B play for the last 2 years and was beside himself when he found out that this year he could play too. :) However, for us that means very little time for the Nye5 at home! 2 kids playing = practice twice weekly for both kids, PLUS the games.....Im sure with my luck each will be offest on their days, so we'll likely have to be somewhere every day for one of their team requirements, from now 'till June Im going to be a busy momma! Living the "soccer" mom lifestyle, in the life of baseball rather than soccer! Baseball mom lifestyle, here I come! Im just excited for the boys. :) They love this time of does big Papa Pually. :) Hes a big kid at heart - so this time of year is when he shines the most. :)

Hope ya'll have a wonderful weekend! Ill try to post something between now and the end of the weekend if I can.....thanks to those who follow our somewhat boring blog, lol!! We're just your everyday, family of 5 with not a whole lot going on, teehee!!

Im sick......thats all I have to report right now. I feel like bootey......consider yourself lucky/happy if you don't have this crud! I've been praying for good health and for this to be GONE....still waiting. Also tried to "hate" it away like my dad says to do - not working so much. I think this is the devils work or some sort of karma debt Im paying! Regardless of what it is or where it came from - I just want to be warm without cold sweats, be able to breath thru my nose without my chest rattling and I want to sleep a full nights sleep without hacking myself into a sneezing fest! waaaaaaaaaaaah!! Pitty party me right now...boooooooooooooo! :(
