My Dad!

Happy Birthday Dad! This is a tribute to my dad. He is one of the best guys I know. He is a good example of being cheerful and looking for the positive. He can do anything, and if he doesn't know how, he finds a way to get it done. He delights in his family, especially when we are all together. I love the way he has accepted my husband as one of his own sons. He loves our children and is always willing to give them a horse ride when they ask. They make memories together that my kids will remember forever. I love him a ton and hope he has a great day!

I've been tagged!

I usually don't do these types of things, but I like reading other people's. So if you're reading this and you want to do it, consider yourself tagged. Hey, it's only 6 things, right? My friend Morgan tagged me and to tell you the truth, I can't really think of anything that interesting! Sorry about that.

Da Rules:List 6 facts/habits about yourself on your blog.At the end of your post, tag 6 friends.Visit your 6 friends blogs and leave a comment informing them they have been tagged - let them know they can read your blog for the rules.

1. In January, I will have FOUR children. I know, I know. Sometimes I can't believe it either.

2. I turned 30 a few months ago! Luckily, it wasn't as bad as I pictured it to be.

3. I am in a dinner group with two other families in my neighborhood and I LOVE it. I fix dinner on Tuesday nights for three families (mine and two others) and then I get dinner delievered to me on Wednesday and Thursday. It's great!

4. I met my husband on a blind date and we got married less than 5 months later! YIKES!

5. I wish I were better at interior design and photography! Maybe someday I'll have time to learn more about each of these.

6. I love to watch Biggest Loser and Law & Order SVU. Someday I hope to have a Tivo so I don't have to record with the old VHS tapes!

Well, there it is. I tag Holly, Meranie, Natalie, Amber, Jen, and Roy. Don't worry, if you don't want to do this, I won't be offended.

Putting up the Tree!

We had a lot of fun, especially the kids! We turned on the Christmas music and everything to get into the Christmas spirit!

Check out my Slide Show!


Here are some of the other highlights from last week! We had a lot of fun making jewelry, playing cards, riding horses, and making gingerbread houses!

What we've been doing!

Hello again! I have been meaning to write for a long time, but I have been soooo busy! Do you like the new look? My sister and her husband helped me out with that, so "Thanks" to them.



We had a really good Thanks giving. We went to Micah's family's for dinner. His mom even had a craft for us to do. It was fun. We also spent a good part of the day looking through the ads. We didn't go crazy shopping, but we did get a few deals that we were excited about. The first place that we went was Home Depot to get some tools and a ladder to work on our house. We were both really excited about that.

Potty Training

I guess Tyann thought her baby needed to be potty trained as well. Micah went into the restroom and this is what he found.

A big hole in the ground!













Well, it's official! We broke ground to build a house this week. I was so happy that I did shed a few tears. It just seems like we have waited for this for so long! I'll try to take pictures every few days to update you on the latest! For those of you who don't know, Micah was hired here, so we decided that we would be here long enough to build a home. He starts full time when school gets out in December, so we are anxious.

I was going to have my cousins come up and do the footings and foundation for us, but it didn't work out. I was dissappointed, but so glad that they were good about it. I was appreciative that they were still willing to come and help wherever they could. How great is family???
