Happy Hope!!

Noah teetering

Serious Mia

"Wouldn't my Papa be proud?"

"Look how big I am now!"

"Check this out! If you bite the end and suck the ice cream out, it's almost like a milk shake."

Noah and his girls

"What do you mean I need a tissue?"

"If you take tiny licks it will last longer. Don't believe that whole bite the end off stuff. It's lies, all lies!!!"

"What? I'm not doing anything. No, I was putting the lid back on, not taking it off. Really!"

Sorry Mia, you're busted!!

Destin, FL

We are having a great time here in Destin! We thought we would post a few pictures for you to see. Most days, as you will notice, we have stayed on the beach. The kids have been boogy boarding and Camden has been working on his surfing moves. They are loving the beach. Today was the only day we didn't go(the red flags were out) so we went to the pool instead. They have caught tons of little fish with their nets and Ali even caught a tiny jelly fish! We head home on Saturday, but for now we are on VACATION!!

Jordyn is working very hard!!!

Well, we have told Jordyn if she can raise enough money to buy her plane ticket then she can go in July. She is soooooooo excited!! She has already sent out support letters and her grandparents brought her a bucket of change tonight that is probably around $200. We are planning a garage sale to help her, but we are in a terrible location so we have to find a location first.

I asked her, for her letter, to think of why she wanted to go and include that information. Her first response was, "I want to meet the rest of my family." Enough said! Please pray God supplies all her needs according to His riches in glory!

Jordyn, Mommy wants you to go!! I can't wait to see you with all the kids but especially with Mia, Noah and Hope!! I'm believing God's grace will abound to you and you will have all sufficiency!!!

Bon Fet Zanmi 'm!!!!

Happy Birthday my friend! I pray this day will be a wonderful day full of God's peace and goodness. Thank you for all you do for my children, but most of all thank you for being such a great friend. Love you!!

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you.

Ok, well....This is suppose to be a list of 7 little known facts about myself. I'm not sure how well people know me so we'll see if I can surprise anyone with my facts.

1. I married my childhood/high school sweetheart a month after graduating High School. We met when I was 11 years old and surprisingly new shortly after we would spend the rest of our lives together. There were a few times it looked like that wouldn't happen, but God brought us back together and I am blessed to be married to such an amazing man. I love you, hon!!

2. I LOVE surprises! Whether it's a gift, a fact, a plan I don't care, surprise me. God knew this about me and surprised me with 5 of the 6 children we have. Jordyn was our only "planned" child, but everyone of them was deeply wanted!!

3. My favorite color is yellow!! Unlike Laura McBride, I don't know if I own anything yellow. I don't have any clothes that are yellow, no rooms, my wedding didn't have yellow, but really I do love it! It's so bright and cheery. The only thing I can think of in my house that is yellow is Noah's desk in our classroom. It's the only desk that I got to pick the color, therefore it is yellow.

4. I always intended on becoming a nurse. All through high school I took classes to prepare me for Nursing school, but as you already read got married instead. I knew at that point I would be a stay at home Mom when we had children so I decided to not waist my time or money on college and went to work at a bank instead. I worked there until Jordyn was born and have loved staying at home since.

5. I am a proud PK. Growing up my dad pastored Glezen Revival Center Pentecostal Church in Glezen, Indiana. Yep, that's right "holy rollers". Our church was often accused of locking the doors, dancing, rolling on the floor and swinging from the chandeliers. We loved to laugh and say, "That's not true. We have NEVER locked the doors." :) He now is a Pastor of an Assembly of God Church in Petersburg, Indiana.

6. I want a Yorkie(female to be specific)! I have been trying to talk Jeremy into it for over a year now, but for once he is not caving easily. (Honey, don't forget #2, I LOVE surprises.) I think they are adorable! They don't shed! They are easy to take places! They love to be played with so it would be great for the kids! And my mom has a friend that sells them, so I would know where to get one and she doesn't charge $1,000+.

7. I LOVE BEING A MOM!!! My kids are amazing! I love having Jordyn, Ali & Camden home with me and can't wait to have Mia, Noah & Hope here as well. Yes, I'm sure there are days where they need a break from me and I from them, but all in all we love being together. We love to play games inside and out, watch movies, swim, plant flowers, go for walks, do you get the hint. I don't even mind taking them to the store. Yes, I will come home with tons more than planned, but that happens if Jeremy goes too. :) I can't imagine if they were all "in school". My life would be so different and a different that I am not interested in having.

So that's it.....

Apparently I'm suppose to tag 7 other people so I'm going to tag......
