Block Party!

Halloween 2008!

Happy Apple Preschool Halloween Party

Caleb had fun at his party but once we got to the retirement home and all the kids started singing he got mad and uncomfortable and weird. I am finding that he does not like new situations. I am trying to upload the video it is hilarious!

At the Cabin in Payson

We have such an amazing time at my aunt and uncles cabin in Payson! It was such a nice get away! And we found a new pet! The weather was perfect and the best part is there is no TV. So we had great quailty time and we were able to fun things that we don't normally do, like go on "adventures" and look for bugs and we went on like 20 walks. The park was gorgeous and there was actually flowing water in the stream. Our new pet freaked us out a bit at first but we grew to love him. We named him Spiderman and he sleeps in Caleb's room now....NOT

Our Kiddos

I just had to take a minute and write down things that are fresh in my mind from the last few weeks. It has been TOO long since I have posted. I do not have a camera that works right now so I feel like if I don't have photos then I can not post. But I guess that is not true and I can post when my memories are fresh with or without photos. I borrowed my moms camera so a have some pictures of the kiddos. Here are a few things that I remember the last few weeks.

Caleb-Its seems to me that he has grown up a few years in a few days! The things he is saying is blowing me away. We were sitting at dinner and I was getting frustrated that he was not eating and he must have heard it in my voice and he said "Mom its going to take patience!" Thats what I always say to him! He summed up being a mom in a simple line and it put me in my place quickly. Thats right Caleb-its going to take patience to be your mom and love you like I should, but I would not change it for anything in the world! Another thing I remember he said that stands out to me, we were all four in the car and he said "Kyla is really sick, Jesus is going to help her. Jesus helps me too. But where is Jesus? Oh just kidding mom he is in my heart!" Such a precious moment.

Kirea- I have to rave and gush about her right now because I am not sure how long this is going to last. She is the sweetest little girl in the world!! She smiles constantly and has a laid back silly personality. Her favorite thing to do is play peek-a-boo and dance. She is saying a few words like uh-oh but does this with a cough and then an o, she says dada and mama. She just seems to know everything that is going on and has it all figured out already. She is the light of my day!

Tony- Well since I am going on about the kiddos I have to give my husband some props. He has to be the most supportive, loving husband in the world. It is a very busy time for me right now with Heritage Makers and he is so good about hanging with kids when I am gone. Its so nice to know he is such a good dad and it makes me feel better when I have to be gone. He also helps me with running here, running there, pick up the scanner, craft fair things, grocery shop, etc. I am so blessed!

Britt Goes To College!

I can't believe Brittany is so far away! She is in Kansas now at Manhattan Christian College. Me, Laura, and Britt were able to do a ROAD TRIP and take her to get settled. The drive there seemed like a life time, especially since 18 hours into it we took a detour! I thought I was going to loose my mind. But we made it and Kansas is SO pretty. I love how small MCC is and everyone was so welcoming to Britt. I am so proud of her and I know she is right where God wants her. Here are some photos of our trip and her and Sara's dorm. You can tell I was getting a little delusional- we were having a dance party while I was driving. Thanks Laura and Britt for that great bonding time and making it such a fun drive :)

Caleb's First Day of Preschool

It is crazy to think that Caleb is in preschool now. I am so excited that he gets to go to Happy Apple! Its weird being on the other side of it now being the parent instead of the teacher. I think I am the parent I always said I didn't want to be! I worry, I want to know how he is doing, I wish I could to be a fly on the wall to see how he interacts with others. I want to see if he remembers anything we have tried to teach him about how to treat others. blah, blah,blah. He's 3 and I am so worried! Am I a weird stalker mom?? I kinda feel like one. I am so proud of him and just need let him become the independent, sweet boy he already is but sometimes wish he wasn't.
