Stunt Kids!!

This afternoon Dan and the kids and I went outside for some fresh air and exercise. Luke and Kylie were riding there bikes. Yes, Luke is now riding his bike without training wheels! Yes, It is quite scary. Mind you he has been doing this for about 3 days now! This afternoon he stood up while pedaling! He cracks me up, when he gets into his turning; he turns on a dime!

Well, as they were riding Dan and I were standing in the street, and Kylie rode onto the sidewalk. Right after turning on the sidewalk, she slowly falls over and lands tummy side down in the grass. Laughing she gets up!! Then after seeing that it made Dan and I laugh, she must have done 4 more stunt moves off of her bike. One of the best ones, was as our neighbor boy came riding by... she jumped off of her bike and rolled in the grass. And of course, he doesn't stop! It was hilarious. Then to top off the evening, Luke rides by Dan and I and falls off of his bike too, about 5 second before Kylie crashes as well. Landing about 4 feet apart from each other. Our neighbor at that time is walking towards his house, and laughs saying something about stunt man moves huh? Dan and I were laughing hard, it was great!

I will try to get some pictures of there awesome moves soon.

She was silly, she loved to watch TV and chase the ducks and dogs on it. She would bark at every delivery truck that went by our house. She would love it when someone rang our door bell. She greeted you, every single time with excitement. Bailey would turn her head as to seem like she understood you talking to her, especially when you said, "treat, Abby, doggie day care, and bye bye". She had a love hate relationship with motorcycles. We would pray that we wouldn't see one when we would drive to Wimberley. It never failed, if they were a half a mile in front of us, she would see them. Well, sounds silly to be missing a dog, but I do. We had to say good bye to Bailey of nine years on Saturday night at 10 pm. She laid down about 4:30pm, by the back door, as to say I'm ready to go. She never went back into the house. The hosue is quite now, no barking, no wagging tail thumping on the ground, and no animal vaccum cleaner. Nothing is carring around socks and shoes into differnet rooms. Life is fun, enjoy your family!

We have a photographer in the house!

I know, I know! Two blogs in one night!!! I was looking at some pictures, and just started laughing. We let Kylie use a camera this past summer and last few months. I was looking at the pictures and want to share them with you. Actually it is really neat to see life from her view! I hope you enjoy! :)

Number 3

As most of you know Dan and I are expecting our 3rd child in June!! I can't wait to hopefully find out what it is. Boy or girl? John Deere Tractor Boy... or .... :) Luke said earlier that if it was a boy that he wanted to name it John Deere Tractor Boy. I think he has now changed his mind. The kids are excited about our new family member! I go to my doctor on February 2nd! So, I'll keep you posted. Hopefully I will update my blog more often in 2009. I know Tara has stopped asking me about my blog, she has probably given up on me. :)
Have a wonderful weekend, all!

Well, it has been quite some time since my last post. I think I will pick up where I am now! We have had our first broken bone experience this past weekend. Kylie broke her arm falling off of a stump of sorts at the playground. Poor thing just lost her balance, and fell head first catching herself with her left hand/arm. She has a buckle fracture, which should heal easily. She got her PINK cast today. I mentioned to the man making her cast that light pink would be neat! :) Kylie is doing good! I think she is feeling better now that she doesn't have the huge splint on her arm that the ER put on. Brother has been helping sister around the house. He even showed Kylie how HE could put is under wear on with one hand today, too.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

The First Day of School!

Well, August 25th was a britter sweet day! It was Kylie's first day of Kindergarten. I have to say that was a hard day! Seeing her sit in her chair and look back at me and smile as to say, "Oh, man.... bye" She had a wonderful day! Kylie loves her teacher Mrs. Baker. Kylie told me that she has the prettiest shoes, and she wears beautiful dresses. Luke has enjoyed the time with just mom. We have logged some hours of building with Legos! And he still asks me, "Can we go get Kylie!" It is so sweet to see your kids grow!

For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life. Proverbs 6:23

Take time!

I sit here writing my first blog ever. So, hang in their. I just found out that on of my old neighbor is carrying her 3rd child, they found out that the baby boy has Trisomy 18. This is a genetic disorder, which there are 3 pieces of chromosome 18, and there should only be 2 of them. The average life span is less than a year. She is going to have a C-section in a couple of weeks. She made blog that just shows how her strength is from the Lord. After hearing that and seeing one of my friend blogs as well tonight, and how she played in the rain with her oldest the other day. It made me cry thinking about taking time. We need to take time with our family. Play in the rain. Kylie asked me the other day if she could go play in the rain, and I said no. Next time it rains, we are going to go out there and have fun! Kylie and Luke are true blessing from the Lord. They make me laugh, with their funny comments. I want to truly focus on what God has given me and I am thankful for my blessings. I seem to get teary eyed every time I read my friend's blog, she is truly an amazing friend and I am learning a lot from her.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The Second is this:"Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these" Mark 12:30-31
