Hey....where y'all been?

Sorry its been awhile. But here are some pics I dug up.
This was a couple days ago.2007 2008Here are some more random photos taken off my phone. I sad. I forget to use my regular camera. My last post has snow in it.

If I can start a New Years resolution right now, I'll try harder to post. And also to have a more exciting life so that I have something to post. The kids were playing hopscotch together. We love warm weather so we can play outside and not want to kill each other so often inside. Ashlyn was playing model one day. She loves getting all dolled up.
Ryan is a true boy and loves getting dirty.

Random photos....

I'm updating my blog...I know...shocker. I just uploaded some photos off my camera. I thought I'd share them. This was at Lance's after the last big storm we had.
Who's kids are these?We love the environment. We recycle. Yesterday's grocery bags are today's new fashion.
Gaby learned a valuable lesson today. A battery operated car and long hair are not compatible.Good thing she is good natured. She thought it was funny but "I won't do it again Mommy, I pwomise".

I also have to say that 4 kids under 5 + nasty virus and stomach flu + bad weather and cold temperatures = Hell. Good thing God invented wine.

Anticipating Christmas......

I sometimes wish I could be a kid again at Christmas. I remember laying under our tree and looking up. My kids were doing the same thing the other night. Its still fun to see it through their eyes.
A rare peaceful moment in our house.

Happy Belated Birthday!!

This is a week overdue but we have been moving for the past week and I finally got all my equipment together to post photos. Gabriella, Ryan, and Brooke turned 3 last Sunday and have since had 4 celebrations. They will think their birthday lasts a week every year.
We did things a little more casual this year with just a last minute store bought cake. I know, I didn't get one for each child, at this point they don't care. I will try to go back to each their own cake next year. For the record, they loved the balloon cake and the fact that there were candles that were "ABC's".

I hoped the shopping carts would come in handy for picking up toys and inspire them to help clean. It seems to help. They also love to zoom around and around the house where our bathroom has 2 doors and makes a circle through the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and dining room.
Well this is not the order that I wanted the text and photos to go in but my computer doesn't seem to want to let me rearrange them so I'm not wasting any more time on it. Hope you enjoy it "as is".
Happy Birthday again to my little sweeties. I hope someday that you may read this and remember all the happy times we had and not so much the difficult times. Know that I love you no matter what and you will always make me proud to be your mother.

First oficial snow. Is it Winter already?

It usually snows for the first time here around Halloween. Actually its usually the very night of Halloween so its a little early this year. So does that mean that we are getting it all over with sooner or that the winter is going to be long and horrible?

Homecoming 2009.

Here is Ashlyn's first time riding in the Homecoming parade. Its hard to see because even though my friend Dorinda reminded me to bring my camera....I forgot again. So I took these on a camera phone. She is second from the left. The little boy in the sunglasses on the right side of her is her current "boyfriend" from what she says. His name is Austin. I asked if he was nice and Lance asked if he was rich. She said "yes he is nice and what does rich mean?"
Here she is waving from the bus. She is wearing a hat and mittens because it was like 45 degrees today.

Pray for us, please.

I've been dreading this post for a while but I didn't want anyone to feel left in the dark. Some of you already know this, but we could really use your prayer and support.

For those of you that don't already know, I'm sorry and I hope you don't hold it against me but I've had a hard time talking about it without crying. I hate to cry so I've been sort of hoping that people would just find out from other people and eliminate the need for me to do any more crying.

Lance and I have just recently gotten divorced. It was final last week. If you're surprised then you are in the majority. It seems sudden but has been on the horizon for quite a while.

I don't want to go into it too much right now because I don't have the strength and the kids are currently destroying the living room. Soon they'll be chopping up the trim and starting a bonfire.

Specifically, please pray for our children, and that we can always put them first. Secondly I'd appreciate prayer that my sanity will not leave me, as now is when I could use it the most.

1st day--part two.

Snack time.
Kayla and Ashlyn on the bus together.

Ashlyn and her funny faces. They get to sit next to each other on the trip home. Ashlyn was angry that I wanted a photo and she wanted to get on the bus.

Funny thing that when I gave birth to Ashlyn I purposely picked a rare name so that she wouldn't have to share it with another class mate. Guess what the only double name in her whole class is? Yes, she is now Ashlyn O.

1st Day of Preschool.

I'm in shock and denial that my baby is starting school already. I still see an infant in a baby seat when I think of her. When I commented about her being my baby and that she is growing up, she said "well, sometimes babies grow up".
I guess they do. And I better get dressed or we will be late for her first day.
