Loooong Day

Klaire got up at her normal early time so we got up and got ready and headed to I town for a birthday party at Pump-it-up for one of Jace’s school buddies. It was his first time there and he loved it. John, Kylan, & Gatlin went to Lowe’s while we Klaire, Jace & I partied. Afterwards, we went & rode horses. I say we, but it was just me and Kylan. I still can’t get Jace on one. I haven’t been able to ride in years for lack of opportunity, but I LOVED it today just as much as I always have. I can’t wait to go again. We then got groceries, ran some errands, and then stopped at John’s parents for a few minutes. It was a hectic, but nice day.144








My nephew FINALLY has a name!!

Maddox Ray is the name that my sis and her hubby have FINALLY agreed on, now that she only has about 6 wks. till her due date! Didn't think they would EVER make up their minds! As soon as it was official I whipped out the machine and did him his first onesie. Now, all we do is wait for his arrival!!


Here are some of the pics from all of the trips fishing…..415

Lots of reason to celebrate today…I had to take Klaire for a recheck on her iron since it was low on her 1 yr. check-up. It had come up 2 pts. and was in the range they liked, however her DR. still wants us to continue the supplements for one more month to build it up even more. So, though as little as it seems, a reason to celebrate anyway. After her DR. appt. we headed home for Jace’s ball game and then dropped off the kids at our house & my parents cam over to babysit! (THX GUYS!!) John & I went out to eat with Angela & Jeremy for a night out. We celebrated John’s bday with supper at Chili’s (thx AA & Jeremey! we LOVE you guys!) and then we headed to Target for some shopping!!

9 year anniversary

John & I celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary today. I say we celebrated, but we actually are not celebrating until this weekend. My parents are keeping the kids for us so that we can go out on a date to eat/catch a movie with friends. I am blessed to have 9 years of marriage with a man who looks to God for guidance and who takes care of me and our kids! Thank you Lord for all of your blessings! Klaire also turned 13 mths. old today. I will not note everything about her mths now that she is past a year, except for maybe a few general things, lol. She is staying around 20-21 lbs. Sis is still in sz 3 diapers, tho we will probably go up to 4 next time we buy. We have bought diapers once now. It was a HUGE blessing to go her first year with no costs for diapers and then not using formula. She is down to nursing only once a day and takes milk the rest of the time, along with water, and one cup of juice with her iron supplements. She sleeps through the night at times but most days she still does not. Hard to believe she is entering toddlerhood!!

Easter Sunday

Ok, so first off I didn't get one single family pic! UGH!! Oh well~ we had a great Easter Sunday. The kids got up and got their Easter basket treats, and then off to Gammy & Papaw's for an egg hunt. Then we celebrated the true meaning of Easter at church. The kids also had egg hunt #3 there. Afterwards we went to John's parents to celebrate his birthday (which fell on Easter this year) and have an egg hunt there. Jace ended up being the only one that hunted out of my kiddos, lol. We came home and went fishing until late. The kids LOVE fishing!! What a blessed day it was! Thank you Lord for what you did so that we may have eternal life through you!

Egg hunt #2


John’s work had an egg hunt for all of the kiddos. They got to hunt eggs, eat, and ride in a horse drawn buggy. I forgot my camera of all times, but got a couple of mobile uploads. They had a great time!

School Egg Hunts

The kids did egg hunts today at their daycare. Mom went with Klaire and John went with Jace. I think they had fun, wish I could have been there!! So blessed to have people in my life that can always be there for the kiddos when I can't! Thank you Lord for those blessings!! Oh, and by the way, I am aware that Klaire’s hairbow does not match at all. John forgot to put hers in and that was the only one mom could find in the truck! HA! Winking smile
