Happy Memorial Day(:

I just wanted to wish you all a happy Memorial day. We have our freedom cause others sacrificed with theirs. I am truly grateful for all that the Lord has blessed me with and what He will bless me with. That includes my family(: Never take what you have for granted(: Life is too short.
Just thinking of Josh and those that have gone before him and those that will go after him. Freedom is not free.
God Bless The USA

Happy Mothers Day(:

Happy Mothers Day. The question is do you want to be this mother? I only have just a few pictures but a lifetime of stories which I wont take the time to share. For those of you who have a small idea of what I go through on a daily basis enjoy these pics. If isnt flooding floors, counters, toilets (backflash) The week before Josh left our downstairs toilet didnt work. It kept flooding all over the place. Low and behold a week later and a plumber in toe after 30 minutes snaking our toilet and then having to remove the toilet, ta da, two duplo legos and a bouncy ball(: yup. SO where did I leave off? Right toilets. If it can be destroyed it will. If it cant believe me our wonderfully creative kids will find a way(:
Well with the help of Seth, Michael, and Matthew we went through our kids books and got rid of a diaper box full (yes Sarah I use those for packing and getting rid of stuff too-smile). I am sure you would have done it differently then me but I really didnt have much of a choice. See for yourself(: Granny called just in time and had a good laugh as I went to calm down in my room and find my camera so I wouldnt kill my dear boys.(: Enjoy.

Yeah I know "I/we didnt do it"

Josh is now Deployed

Just a quick update.

As you can tell I have not been keeping up very well with our Blog. We have been spending all the time we can together as a family as Josh's deployment was coming at us fast. Well it is here. Early this morning we all went and said our family goodbyes, hugs and kisses till we see Josh/Daddy again. I will keep you posted from time to time as Josh emails me and hopefully sends picture of Kuwiat and then Iraq, where he will be for a year. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. God bless you and yours.
Love you(:


I know this is way behind so I will be playing catch up with this and the next few Blogs(:

We didnt do the traditional egg hunt this year but a more simpler Easter with a little basket instead. The kids all loved them just teh same....even the big kid in the family(: We decided not to give the kids their baskets before church as we meet at 1pm. This way the kids would not be wired for church. Next year I will plan better still so we dont give them after church with church so late because the kids were wired all night instead(: Oh well, we had fun and were together, that is what is important.
