Caleb and Papaw Fishing!!

This past Saturday, while I was in North Carolina, Caleb spent the night with my dad so that they could go fishing on Sunday. They had THE BEST time and caught a total of 75 fish!! Caleb caught a 3 1/2 pound bass all by himself! Also, Papaw bought him the camo jacket that he is wearing as well as a new pair of hiking boots and a pocket knife.(Mommy keeps an eye on the pocket worries. It's mostly just to collect for now.)  Needless to say, Caleb was in heaven. Here are a few pictures from their time on the river. Thanks Papaw for such a good time fishing!! We love you!

Ok, so I finally am able to put some pictures on here. And I will be able to post more frequently when we can get a new digital camera. For those of you who don't know my family I would like to introduce them. This is my wonderful husband Jon on our honeymoon (short for Jonathan). He is the sweetest man, and such a great father to our 4 boys. I love him more and more every day. 

This is my oldest, Austin who is 11. He is so sweet and caring and is the best 11 year old I know. Yes, I am his mother, but seriously he is. He is super smart and responsible. He gets great grades in school. He is probably a better planner than I am! He has such a sweet heart and always wants to do the right thing. Some of his favorite things are soccer, camping, hiking, and fishing. And obviously.... going to baseball games!

This is Ethan and he is 9 yrs. old. He will be 10 in Feb. He is my adventurous one. There is nothing that he is afraid of and he loves a challenge. He is very active and wants to be outside ALL the time. He loves trail biking, camping, hiking, etc. Funny enough he is also very sensitive and so sweet. He is always wanting to help in whatever way he can. And he too is really smart, he does so well in school.

This is Caleb and he is 8 yrs. old. Up until last August he was my baby. He has the best sense of humor and can make you laugh in an instant. He is so creative and loves to draw and paint. And he is really good at it too. Some of the things that he has drawn have blown me away. Jon and I are going to be putting him in some art classes this next summer to develop this talent. He really is so sweet and will share with anyone, even his brothers! He is so smart too, his teacher says that he may be a mathematician when he grows up.

This is my youngest Corey....he is 14 months old. This was him enjoying his dinner last night. He is such a ham, he will smile every time you call his name and he sees that you have a camera in your hand. He is a really good baby and has been from the beginning. When he would wake up he would never really cry, just lay there and make noise so that I would come and get him. He is such a sweet baby and he LOVES his brothers. He loves to chase them around the house and he tries his best to keep up! He really likes when he can go into their rooms and play with them. He loves his Ma Ma and Da Da too. When Jon gets home from work he throws his arms up into the air, smiles really big and yells, "Hi!!".  And when I am holding him and someone else tries to hold him he will shake his head, "No, No." So cute. :)

So sleepy

Well I am getting ready to leave in about an hour to go have my hair cut and colored for the wedding this weekend. I am leaving tonight to drive to N.C. I had planned on having pictures up by last night,but as you can see it did not work out. I was not able to find the shoes that I needed yesterday afternoon, so I had to go back out last night. I also did the manicure, pedicure thing and went to the store. I didn't get home until 10pm last night. So, I put the groceries away and went to bed. And guess what? I still don't have shoes. I was at the nail salon for TWO hours . By the time that I got to the mall to buy the shoes that I had picked out, it was 8:40pm. I thought to myself, no problem, I have already picked them out. I will just go in and get them. Wrong. They did not fit. Not even close. And I then did not have time to look somewhere else. So, it's back to shoe shopping after my hair appointment this morning. But, no worries! I know it will all work out. And thanks to my dad who made it possible for me to do all of these things. He is such a sweet and caring dad. :) So, you are all probably saying, "Is she really going to ever put up any pictures?" Yes. I promise I will. That is one of the main reasons that I am doing this. And also to write about my wonderful family. Well, I'm off to get the baby ready to go. It's going to another busy day!

Running Around Town Today.....

Today is going to be a busy day. I leave tomorrow to go to N.C. to be in my cousins wedding. I have a TON of things to do to get ready. I have to go pick up my bridesmaid dress at the seamstress (thank God it's because it was too big), get my shoes to go with the dress, pick up my outfit to wear to the rehearsal dinner, get my car washed, go to the store to pick up stuff for the kiddos while I am away, etc. etc. And of course take care of my 14 month old and get home by 3pm when the bus drops off my oldest in front of my house. I should be able to post pics this evening, the external hard drive is working! Please keep my hubby in your prayers, he is sick and is going to have the kids by himself starting tomorrow evening for THREE days. Maybe you should also pray for my kids! Ha! Just kidding. :)

New to the Blog Thing

This is officially my first blog ever. I have been meaning to start doing this, but I have been so busy that I kept putting it off. How could I be so busy that I didn't have time to set up an account to blog? Well, I have 4 children....yes 4. And I love it. I love everything about being a mother. But obviously, having 4 keeps me pretty busy. Hence, the reason that I have not done this before now. It will take me some time to get my page looking the way that it should, i.e. pictures uploaded and what not. My hubby and I are in search for a new computer as the laptop that we currently have is barely hanging on. I can't even upload pics on it unless I load them on our external hard drive first. Which is fine, however the port on the back of my laptop that I need to do this with has not been functioning correctly. I said all that to say that it will take some time, but I will have pictures for all of you to see soon. And since that is one of the main reasons that I am doing this, it would make sense to make it a priority. :) I have people ask me all the time, "When are you going to send us new pictures of the kids?" So now you all have a place to go and view them....well as soon as I get them on here. :)
