I know this is late but wanted to share it with you....

A baby asked God,"They tell me you are sending me to Earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy," God said, "your angel will sing for you and smile for you and you will feel your angel's love and be very happy." Again the child asked, "and how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak." "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?" God said, "your angel will place your hands together and teach you how to pr…

Poor lil' Law

Law has been sick, He always wants to sleep in mom and dad's bed when he's not feeling good

He wasn't breathing well and the doctor was worried so he had to get a steroid shot to open up his airways, he got a cool bandaid -

but he still wasn't very happy with it!

Poor baby!
Today he is doing much better, hopefully he'll continue to get better!
Thanks Rachael for being there for me and encouraging me to take him in! YOU ROCK!

Tag AGAIN :)

I was tagged by my sister Maria with this - enjoy!
List 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 random surprising facts about yourself. Tag 3 people at the end of your post by leaving their names.
1- Being a wife to my bestfriend Cole
2- Being a mother
3- Music, dance, sports, movies -oh wait is that too many ??
1- Having one of my children die is pretty much my biggest fear
2- Forgetting where my blessings come from
3- Standing still (in life)
1- I hate to think that I am the same person I was last year, last month, week or even yesterday
I know there is always something I can change about myself to help me become a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, or person in general, so to always become better is a long term goal for me
2- Get our yard cleaned up and looking decent!
3- Try new things to learn more about my interests, likes & dislikes, and talents
1- I love taking, receiving, and looking at pictures LOVE LOVE LOVE …

Law what does a monkey say?


I know Mom... I never learn the 1st time.

So I was going to take a picture of this but I just couldn't get a good one. I have a big bruise on my chin, can you guess what from? Remember that time in the 7th grade I did the worm, hit my chin on the floor and had to get stitches? Yep that's right I did it again! No stitches this time just an ugly bruise! And no I don't regret it I totally looked awesome doing the worm! I am so amazed that I can even still do it! yay me!


So Law has been toying with the idea of walking for quite some time now; walking along furniture, pushing things around while walking, and taking occasional steps without a support when coaxed. The other day I found him sneaking steps when he was alone but then he saw me and just sat down! Today, however, he has been getting up and walking all around on his own!! YAY! With no one coaxing or there to catch him! He has walked today just as much or more than crawled, I am so excited! And just in time to go to Texas too -so he can show off his new skills! :D


I know I am missing pictures on my blog, I am trying to fix the problem I just suck at it so I have to upload them all to photobucket crop and fix them and put them back up AGAIN! and I really don't want to but I'm am still working on it thanks!

How does he do it?

How in the world do you get from here.......... to HERE! do all the years of their life go this fast or is it just the first ??? I want to kick myself for not enjoying more while he was tiny!


So I am on a soccer team but after looking at these pictures I don't know if I'll stay or not here I am running! my legs are way to long and gangley for this sport! here is another good one see the red team girl- showing such effort, cutting left and right, going after the ball. Me- "oh no, you ladies run ahead I'll stay back here and guard the water jug.... That's right NO DRINK FOR YOU!!!" ok but seriously I had a blast! I took a cleat to the face, my big toenail was ripped off and what was left is dark purple, not to mention I suck! the other team kept taking the ball from me. all-in-all a great game I don't know why they want me on the team but I'm glad!


Yesterday was my baby brother's birthday! Yep -a mayday baby! He turned 19! I wish I had a picture of him... OH WAIT-I DO! Hold on a minute.......TADA! Here's Johnny!! this is a picture of him awhile back at the scarecrow festival -he was a scarecrow, with our friend Charity here's a picture of him climbing a rock wall he so tall its not hard for him to do he just reaches his giant arm up and touches the top! and here is a picture of him and our oldest sister Diana -Brace faces! awe cute! John lives in North Carolina so we didn't get to see him but we still celebrated his b-day by having chocolate chip pancakes they didn't look that good but they were YUMMY! even Law thought so! So happy birthday John I hope it was a great one! we miss you and love you!
