Mya just went to sleep, and I do not have time to be doing this! But I will very quickly:)
Sunday started out wonderful! We all went to church and were coming home very happy and the kids were singing in our van. Until,,,,,, we get to our lane and just a little piece past it up int the middle of the road was an animal! Hit! John was starting to back out and go see. I said that's not ours, he said well let's just go take a look. WELL:( It was our dog Missy! Poor thing! Well kids were doing very well I thought no tears. While I was making lunch I saw hailey go in her room and didn't come out for a bit. When I went to check she was crying!! She didn't want to eat lunch so we let her go. After lunch I decided to let the kids open their Christmas gifts from John and I. We are heading to Florida Sunday anyway. So thought they might as well do it now:) It worked they were happy again.

Not sure! Guess she thougth it was to ride:)

Mya opened them ALL by herself.

Mya and her doll that crawls

Hailey was VERY VERY excited. This is her screaming when she saw what it was.

Her very own American Doll! Mya liked Hailey's also!
Jayce just noticing he got what he wanted! A spy gear car
Sunday night was the Christmas program at our church. They committee did a wonderful job. The kids did wonderful also!

Hailey singing.

Jayce's class did a skit. He was the donkey carrying the Mary on his back.
Afterwards on the way home I was telling them how good they did and Jayce said, I didn't. I asked why he didn't think so? He said everyone laughed:( Poor guy, we then tried to explain that they didn't expect to see him ACTUALLY carrying Mary on his back. He still did not get it.
Now only5 more days till my sunny vacation!!!

Christmas Program, Birthday Party, And COUNTDOWN

We have been super busy since my last post. John's brother Phil was married Thursday. We are so happy for him! Hailey LOVES her new aunt:) She now has TWO aunts!! Neither of us have very big families.
Wendsday night the kids had their Christmas program at school. They have been very excited about it for awhile. Hailey counted down the days for about two weeks. She loves to sing! They did wonderful.

Jayce is in the red shirt and tie

Hailey was an angel

Jayce was a wise man

I was glad they both had a part, so neither was dissapointed.
Friday night was my SWEET nephews birthday party! He is growing up way too fast:)

Singing Happy Birthday. That's Mya's finger pointing at the cake in the corner.

Watching B open his gifts

Mya LOVED this gift. She played with it all night. I think I should have gotten this for her for Christmas!

The girls also liked this toy!! Mya even tried to give Hailey a ride in the wagon.
Today I did lots of laundry and cleaning. Tommorow is church then prob. mom's for lunch then Church Christmas program at church.
We have officially decided we ARE going to Florida over Christmas break!! YEAH! I am so happy. We will stay at my grandma's house. Only 8 more days. My turn to count down days:)

Thanksgiving Weekend

I have a lot I have missed on updating and can't remember it all. So we will just go with Thanksgiving weekend! Thursday we went to mom and dad's for lunch. FINALLY got to see Ryan's again:) That night we went to John's parents for Chili soup. YUM! Friday the kids and I just hung out and made party mix! Friday night Jayce and John went deer hunting while the girls and I stayed home and finished the party mix and watched a Barbie movie! Saturday John and I and all 3 kids went to Evansvile. I had the kids Christmas pic's taken first then mom and dad met us at the mall and took the kids to build a bear while I got my other things done in there. by the way Chels, they said they would like to take B somethime before Christmas also. This was Mya's first time and she LOVED it! I stayed for just a little bit of it then had to go. John stayed and took pic's!

This was her favorite part they said. She just bathed and bathed her puppies!!

Riding the carasole at the mall! Not sure what happened to the pic I had of Hailey on it:(
After we finished all our shopping for the day we took the kids to Gattie Town. Mom and Dad met us there that evening.

Jayce trying to duck out of the picture of course.

Mya had lots of fun playing this game.
Sunday we went to church then came home and relaxed watching Colts until that night. We had our Thanksgiving supper at John's parents. Monday I tried to catch up from the weekend. LOTS and LOTS of laundry and a messy house. Oh well we had fun!

Well as the title says I have been indoors ALL week with a sick one. The school called me Monday and said Hailey was running a fever to come and get her. I picked her up and I thought hmmm she sure doesn't look sick. Don't know what the deal was I couldn't get a temp on her all day and she acted great. I even got up and check on her in the night and still no fever. I went to wake her for school in the morning and guess what a fever. It was really wierd. But she had ran on from Tuesday morn until last night. She is missing school so much, she just cries and wants to go. Poor girl. I have enjoyed having her with me again though.

This morning Mya woke VERY fussy and eventually started running a fever she still is. Tonight Jayce got off the bus coughing and has started with fever now. Hopefully everyone gets better soon. Please keep us in your prayers.

Otherwise my hunny got his buck this morning a 9 pointer! He has been hunting since Thursday last week Morning to dark. UGH! I'm so happy for him:) That's all that's happening here!!

The school had a costume parade on Friday. Jayce and Hailey were very excited.

Here's my 2nd grader

They had a lot of fun. They were a little dissapointed on Friday night though. We couldn't go trick or treating because of the rain. We went Sat. night though:) We had to go without daddy of course he was hunting. But we had fun anyway. And got lots of candy which we didn't need!!

Carving Pumpkins

Sunday afternoon we carved the kids pumpkins. Jayce was so excited to show Mya. Since she was to young to know much about it last year. Hailey had been sick since Friday and she was a lot better, but still weak and not feeling the best. Poor girl. But they wanted to carve!

Jayce showing Mya how to clean out hers.

Hailey showing Mya how. She is a good listner.

Mya trying it for herself. The kids wanted to do it so bad. She would pull out one little tiny piece at a time. They thought she should do it quicker!

She made some yucky faces to start with. It felt yucky I guess!! But she loved it:)

She got tired of it and started chasing the dogs! Yes there is a cornfield right out in our backyard!
scary when the corn is tall. But Mya did well and stayed away all summer.

Jayce working on his

Hailey Brooke working on hers

Hailey wiped her yucky hands on daddy!! He He! Surprise daddy!

Mya thought it was fun to dig it out with a spoon. then she was just beating on the sides!!

I still didn't get a pic of them all with the finished pumpkins. Hailey got to feeling really bad and had to go in and rest. They had fun and can't wait to trick or treat this weekend!
Oh and everyone is healthy again!! YEAH!

What a BEAUTIFUL day it is out!! I think it is suppose to warm up a bit, thank goodness. I like my warm weather. It's been quite the chilly start to October. BRR! We have had a nice fall break over the weekend. The kids had off of school Friday. Jayce went home with a friend Thursday night and spent the night. BOO! Mommy missed him a lot. Hailey had a friend over here. They had so much fun. Mya even loved it. She likes to have different kids around here. She is a little clown as of lately. Not sure where she gets it. But if anyone is watching she will give them a show. It is hillarious. So hyper. I would love to have as much energy as her and miss Hailey. My grandma told me the other night that it's like Hailey is always floating. She says it's just like I was when I was young:) ( she is usually hopping or skipping around instead of just walking) Friday night we went to Mi Pueblo for mom's birthday. It was delicious! Ryan's family went too. Love every chance we get to spend with them. Saturday night we went to visit my grandma. We played scummie again. Grammy is going to Florida next monday:( I miss her in the winter months. Sunday morning Jayce woke us at about 5 he had earache! Now let me tell you this guy is tough he never complains much at all when he is sick. he is like his dad. Anyway he had severe pain all morning and I was at my wits end on trying different things. We finally got him to the doctor at about 1:45. They said it was infected and started him on antibiotic. But the poor guy it hurt all day. He has never had ear ache that hurt like this before. We then went to John's parents for supper last night. I'll leave you with pic's of our October so far.
Mya she does this when you get ready to take her picture lately. I guess she thinks she's smiling!
My little man!
My silly girl!
