Joe's Home

After what seemed like a long deployment, Joe made it home last night. We are so thankful that the Lord protected him while he was gone and gave us the strength to manage through another deployment...we are also thankful to all of you who continually kept us in your prayers...we appreciate all of you very much!!!

Nathan's First Boo Boo

So what happens when you aren't watching your baby. He gets a hold of my Polish Pottery Heart Jewelry Box, breaks it on the tile as he is running with it then cuts himself with the sharp piece across the nose. I come out from helping my other boys in the school room to see his bloody nose and then proceed to have to hold him down to stop the bleeding all while he is screaming bloody murder because he doesn't want me holding him down. The joys of motherhood and training your child seeing as how I was just teaching him to not touch that same object. Well, we shall see what happens next!

Old Do, New Do

Well, I am trying to grow out my hair for my hubby so I had to go and get it cut yesterday...thanks Jessica...and this is how is turned out. I really like it. It will make the transition to longer hair easier.

Christmas Treasure Hunt

Merry Christmas!! We had a wonderful day celebrating the birth of Jesus and remembering all the blessings that God has given us this year. I decided to do a treasure hunt for the boys to be able to find their presents so I was up really late on Christmas Eve making up clues and hiding everything in the right places. I started in the boys' room and then they went up and downstairs quite a bit. They had a really good time finding everything. It made for a fun day!! We were able to chat with Joe on the phone in the morning. We were suppose to have a video conference with him but unfortunately that planned failed. Joe was able to have a home cooked meal of turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and even an apple pie on Christmas Eve. Then, on Christmas morning all of his guys grilled eggs, bacon, and hash browns for a great breakfast which is something they haven't had for a while. Even though we were apart again this year, we know that there were many of you who have constantly prayed for us. I definitely felt the Lord's wonderful grace and all of your prayers yesterday. The boys and I had a great time playing with our new Wii. More of the boys playing than me. I managed to get one game of bowling in last night but I am sure I will have lots more chances soon. We pray that you all have enjoyed your Christmas too!! May the Lord continue to shine on all of you!

Well, last weekend after my family left from Thanksgiving, I spent Friday evening cleaning and making space for the Christmas tree. I decided I better get up my decorations before I didn't really want to put anything up. Then Christian and I decided that we wanted to decorate out in front of the house since we really have never done it before. So here is a picture of our work. We decided to use the red, white, and blue in honor of Joe and our country. We had a great time working together on this project and Christian is really happy with the results and most of all it was fun.

It's a Bird, It's a Plane, NO! It's SUPERCLIMBER!!!

Everyday I have to take a friends son to the bus stop in the morning with Nathan so when we come in I leave the stroller in the front room of our house. Well, Nathan loves to go and discover how the buckle works on the stroller. Well, I was doing dishes and I didn't see Nathan anywhere and it was really quiet. Ususally,you know what that means...TROUBLE!!! Well, the video explains it all. He had decided to climb into the stroller this time and so I decided to see if he could get himself out of it but it was hilarious to watch.
