Photo: Hard to believe my nephew with this sweet little face, that was taken away from us all too early at the age of 17 months, would be turning 8 today!! Happy Birthday Joe Joe...we love and miss you <3
                             Happy Birthday Joe-Joe!!
8 years ago I never knew how much you would change my heart and my life forever. I cherish each and every memory of our time together. I wish we had had more of it. God has his own timing and plans and I know I will see you again. Until then my love you will be forever in my heart.

Where does your reality lie and whom do you allow to color/shape it?

      My *reality* is more of a state of confusion anymore. I feel I am supposed to compromise who I am for the feelings of others. (I was never any good at all the PC stuff.) Either way it is what it is. I have decided for now to return to this site for the updates of the going ons of family and friends. Now to just re-learn to read/write all the HTML I allowed myself to forget. :)
     I will have LOTS of photos to upload in the next few days as well as the countdown for Christmas and VACATION!! In the next few months we have the holidays, 13th bday for Anna, baby shower, Impact, BABY!!, 18th bday for Courtney, 2nd bday for Krista, WEDDING, Mexico, and church camp. BUSY BUSY BUSY!!!

can I keep it?

When we got home from life group I told the kids they had to take out the puppies before bed. Not to long after I hear MOM MOM MOM you need to come see this. When I finally get to see it, this is what I found. Now the questions are WHAT is it??? and can I keep it??? I don't know and NO!! NO you may NOT KEEP IT!!


Well I actually did as he asked and took her to the store and bought her a "worm" in every color. When she saw them all (there were about 30 of them) hanging on the chain she was kicking, squealing and drooling. It was priceless. Such a happy happy baby!! :)

I was a little late in posting this.
I actually took her the very next morning.
Yes I know she is spoiled :)

It was a LONG night last night.

There are three things that Baby Girl has to have when she goes to bed at night, her pacifier, a blanket (she prefers one of the quilts made my the lovely Mrs. Jessica J) and her Caterpillar (aka wormy). When I went to put her to bed we couldn't find her Caterpillar. We looked EVERYWHERE. We tore the room apart, the front room apart, searched the couches and even the car. After about an hour of screaming with both dad (over the phone) and I trying to calm her down she was finally going to try to sleep without it. Just as she was about to fall asleep I went to cover her up with her quilt and who should fall out right in front of her?!?!? Yep WORMY!!! She was out in less than a minute with a smile on her face. :) Daddy said I HAVE to go buy 3 or 4 more of them NOW!!! Pray I can still find them.

Been way to long!!!

I can't believe its been almost a year and a half since I posted anything. I missed having this as an outlet in my life and also as a way to stay in touch with friends form here to CO to GE to Guam and beyond. A lot has happened in that years time. In march we added a beautiful baby girl to our family. She was born on the 18Th of March and is such a sweet baby. Daddy deployed again in April and I would love to say that it was back to the sand box (Iraq) but it was to AFG instead this time. I have some pics of him and where he is at and I will try to get them up soon. Our family will be moving on post in about 3 weeks time so it will be a very busy and trying time for a while. My brother and his family just bought a house near Nashville and will be moving in within a week. I will miss having them here with us but I can't complain to much about an hours drive because they used to be 5+ hours away. The kiddos started school last Friday and we are all trying to get back on a schedule. Our lives are busy as usual. Church on Sunday morning and Sunday night. School Monday morning, drill practice after school and Deeper life at church Monday night. Not sure about Tuesdays yet other than drill. School, drill and then life group Wednesday night. Probably girl scouts after school on Thursdays and drill after school on Fridays. It may be hectic but it's normal for us and we love it (most of the time) !!!!

You call THAT normal??.....yes yes I do :)

Our house is finally back to normal. Well as normal as you can get for us anyway! Hubby is back to the getting up at the buttcrack of dawn for pt schedule. I'm not to fond of my alarm going off at 4:40 in the morning but him getting off around 3 pmish is really great. I thought my running around like a mad woman would be cut back some with him coming home but I was wrong. I think if anything (at least for now) it has increased. We still have early morning clubs on Monday's and drill team practice on Monday's and Thursday's and Girl Scouts on Tuesday's and Wednesday's along with Life group (Bible study) on Wednesday night and church twice on Sunday's. We are to say the least very busy!! Add all that to the cooking, cleaning and homework and we have very little time to be bored and lazy. We still do the Friday night dinner and tv night. I think it's our only night off. I still haven't unpacked everything but I guess we have time to get that later (right). Well it's late and I have to get up around 5am. Night All!!

I have two places I keep my pics (I know weird and confusing) so I picked the 4th of the 4th from both :)

This pic was taken on Easter 2008.
They decorated the bunny hutches and then colored 4 dozen eggs. (or was it 5)
We had the biggest Easter egg hunt ever. There were over 400 plastic eggs full of candy hidden in the back yard.

These pics were taken at the Williamson County Fair in August of 2008.

The News print is from Smilebox. The kiddos and I were just playing around with some of their pics and Brat~baby 3 made this one.

They had A LOT of fun at the fair. I can't wait to go back!!!
