Usually water in the oil is indicative of a head gasket gone bad. Does it overheat at all?

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17 (KJV)

no it doesnt overheat...it doesnt smoke like alot is in the cylinders or anything...there is just enough in the pan that it shows a little on the dipstick...when i pull dipstick it is the brown milky look along the edge of the stick.

Have you changed your PCV valve? It could be clogged and allowing moisture to build up in the crankcase.

X2 what ItsSabby said!! Great idea!!

Take it one step further and pressure test the cooling system. If it holds without the needle moving at all, it eliminates a bad head gasket, cracked block etc.

Good luck;

When you change the PCV valve you may want to check the crankcase vent to the rear of the PCV.
