"sit down...for me"

Tonight I tried many ways of putting Kye to bed in her new big girl bed. She loves the new bed, the problem is that as soon as I lay her down, read her a book, sing her a song and pray with her...she is already at the door before I can get up off the floor and leave...(big sigh)!!! After about 3 hours of this show, I finally got firm, laid her down and I went to close the door she said, "just sit down for me" not with me but for me! Her tiny little words touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes...yes...I had all the time in the world to sit down for my baby girl. At that moment bills did not matter, TAKS scores did not matter, the laundry did not matter...Kye mattered!

Thank you Lord for the small things...especially the ones that weigh 25 pounds, with dark brown eyes, dark hair, and a smile that will melt your heart! AMEN!

Everyone is so worried about her but we know that she is in your hands and we trust that! Thank you again for all the wonderful things that you have blessed me with today and EVERY day! AMEN!

When did I last look like this? I remember this body...thin, tanned, in shape (my butt ran/walked 7 miles everyday...remember that Laura and JJ;D) Now I feel like I do good to get out of bed in the mornings...needless to say run 7 miles. I dont overeat, infact, I have to remind myself to stop and eat. Tanned? I have no idea what that is anymore. I miss this body...where did it go? What in the world happened to it...

Well, what exactly happened to my body...their names are Jaydon and Kye...

If I had to give up my body for these two beautiful healthy children, then I am perfectly fine not being the skinnest mom in the world. I dont mind that the majority of my exercising is trying to get up off the floor after the kids have tackled me down. I am blessed to be alive and to have this life...even if I am not that 'hot sexy momma'!

Dear Lord, thank you so much for my two precious babies! They mean the world and more to me! I thank you for giving me a healthy and happy life Lord...and if you would like to have mercy on my body and help it find its shape again...I would be so greatful! AMEN!

As we were hunting easter eggs on Saturday in Vernon, my Uncle Bill brings down his dog, Jaxon. Kye just knew that this is what the easter bunny has left for her. She pulled Jaxon all around the front yard on his leash. Jaxon was such a good sport!

Thank you Lord for the adventures we had with Jaxon...but mainly thank you for letting him go back to his own home and not to! AMEN!!!
"It's quiet. The sky is still black. The world is still asleep. In a few moments the day will arrive. The stillness of the dawn will be exchanged for the noise of the day. For the next twelve hours I will be exposed to the day's demands. It is now that I must make a choice. Because of Calvary, I am free to choose. And so I choose...Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek His grace. And then, when this day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest." - Max Lucado

Kye slept in her big girl bed last night! It only took about an hour of rocking, singing and putting her back in the bed until she realized that is where she would be sleeping from now on. She really seemed to like it...will see how she does again tonight!

Thank you God for a peaceful night of sleep in our big girl bed!

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7

Thank you Lord for letting my family have a safe trip to and from Vernon! We are so blessed to have the friends and family that we have! You truly are an amazing God...thank you for dying for ME! May the song of hope sing in my heart tomorrow! AMEN!

This past weekend, I was blessed to be able to visit East Texas...Hallsville to be specific. Mel, Kim and Lins flew me out for a girls weekend! We had so much fun! It has been a long time since I have laughed and cried that hard! We ate, shopped, visited some old friends, made some trouble, talked about old memories and made tons of new memories! Above is a picture of Kim's backyard...what a Heavenly sight! I can not wait until I get to visit again. I love you girls!!!


Well, I thought I would try out the world of the "blog"! I am addicted to myspace but many of my friends and family do not have myspace accounts so hopefully this will be helpful to them so that they can stay in touch with us too!
