More Birthday Celebrations

We have been celebrating B-days all month I think. Jayce's B-day was Feb. 20th and he turned 9. He's growing way too fast.:( The kids had quite a few snow days last week so one night we decided to go to Mi Pueblo to eat. We even got to celebrate their b-day's there.

My three sweeties!

Mya wanted to have a turn wearing a hat.

On Friday evening Jayce had some friends over to celebrate. They had fun and even stayed overnight, so they didn't get much sleep.

He wanted a colts theme of course he is a BIG football fan

Mom made the cakes, she did a wonderful job!!

He was such a wonderful host, he wanted to cut his own cake and serve it. He did really good, he cuts a cake better than me!

He even helped pour some of their drinks later. Yes they were very sweaty, they were playing basketball in the garage:)

Sunday night we celebrated with family and Mammaw made another football cake. Not the helmet this time. It went pretty much the same as Hailey's party, we ate opened gifts and played lots of games.

I am so thankful for each of our children that God has given us. I hope that we will raise them in a way that he would want.

Monday Mya and I had fun taking some pic's. She LOVES to dress up now and wanted to wear her tutu that aunt chelsa made. Actually she is wearing Hailey's in the picture she wanted to wear it next. She wants EVERYTHING of Hailey's:)

Iwant to say Happy Birthday to my firstborn today!! You are such a big man. I can't believe you are 9 years old:( I love you so much buddy, I know you were not planned by boy you are everything to daddy and I. We cherish everyday with you. You are so very tenderhearted and sweet. Love your sisters dearly.You will be the perfect big brother always. You love your hunting and fishing just like your daddy. :) Here are some pictures of when you were younger. They are not very good quality because I took them with my phone and emailed them to my computer. I don't have a scanner at home.

As you all know by now I have a new little nephew!!!! I am soooo excited and happy for Ryan and Chelsa and Brycen. When I got to the hospital Tuesday night Brycen was practically draging me to the nursery window to see his baby brother:) He kept saying come on run, run! I was there after he was born, by the time I found out they were going ahead with the c-section I got ready and went as quick as I could:( oh well i got to see mom and baby. Chelsa thought she looked bad but she was absolutely gorgeous and glowing with excitment:) She kept saying i just can't belive he is here. Corbin is soooo cute. Here are just a few pics Chelsa sent to me, I just look at my phone alllll day long. I can't wait to go back and see him up close now.

It's so beautiful out again today. Snow everywhere. I love the way it looks. I just do not like getting out in this COLD weather. I can't wait for spring. But I will enjoy the seasons as they come:) We have not been doing much at all around here lately, just hanging out and trying to get everyone well. Hailey had been sick all weekend. and Jayce and Mya both have infection in their lungs. BOO! So no playing out in the snow for these kiddos.:( We did go to mom and dad's to watch the super bowl. Even though our colts lost, we did enjoy the evening with friends and family. And lot's of YUMMY food!

Ready for the game!

Go Colts!

The artist at work

Hailey even had me paint her fingers and toes blue with white dots.

Saturday night Jayce called his Pappaw and begged him to come stay overnight. So of course pappaw couldn't turn that down. He came and slept in Jayce and Hailey's room. The next morning Mya would not give pappaw up. He was all hers. They rocked and rocked.

So Sweet!

Today we are going to clean and get everything ready for Miss Hailey's B-day parties this week. Tommorow she will be the big 6!!

Requesting a card shower

Hello blog friends, I am writing today to request some EXTRA prayers for Ryan, Chelsa and Brycen this week. Wendsday will be 1 year since precious Andon was born and went to heaven. They are such a remarkable family as you all have seen. They show such strength and love for our God! They are a big encouragement to me as I am sure to many others.
I would like to ask that we send them cards this week. Shower them with our love and support. If you need their address email me at

He comforts us when we are in trouble, so that we can share that same comfort with others.
2 Corinthians 1:4

Thank you,

P.S. Maybe some of you can post this on your blog. I may not have very many readers:)
