J and K decided they wanted to sign up for the local youth wrestling club.  I can honestly say, I was happy they both wanted too, they need something to help run off this energy!!!  Boys are crazy full of energy!

The first night, they ran, wrestled, played, and SWEAT!  They were both so tired, once we got home they took showers and passed out!

I will admit it that it is a long night, but I love seeing them have so much fun!

The silly boys decided to see if they could fit inside the I beams!  They both did!

We got to see Santa

Our Neighboring town had an amazing Christmas night.  They had Santa, a Reindeer(Prancer to be specific) and a couple of elves!  They also had a Christmas parade, tour of homes, a Fireman's suppers...and much more!

We were short on time so we got to see Santa and the reindeer.  They made it feel so magical for the kids!  I loved it!

Head games?!

A little bit-a-go Dad decided to give me a mini heart attack!  He was working at his part time trucking job, and because of one of those freak accidents, he got hit in the head with a steel bar.

I appreciate him not telling me the whole story until after we were both home and he was safe! 

But it was def one of those "God" moments!!  He very easily would have lost his eye(if not worse) if wasn't wearing his glasses.  If he wasn't wearing his hard hat, the cut could have gone up a lot higher.  All of those "if's" was God watching out for him! 

He ended up with stitches and a concision.  He was off of work for a little bit.  I thank God Daily for not letting this be worse then what it was!

And now he thinks he is pretty cool because of his bada** scar !!

School Pictures 2014

J 10 1/2 years, 5th grade

C 9 years, 3rd grade

K 7 years, 1st grade

D 5 years, PK

Hunting(so far)

Well J has become a pretty avid hunter.  I always joke with people, saying if they offered hunting as a sport in school that is where J would always be!  Him and Dad are in talks to do bird hunting next year!

This was the first year J could do the youth hunt(yeah he wasn't excited at all, can you hear the sarcasm)

His very first shot, he got his very first deer!!!  I was/am very proud of him!

Then hunting with his dad they ended up getting 4 other deer!  God blessed us with the hunt!!

Flipping and flopping around

C just finished her 1st session with the new gymnastics team she joined!  Needless to say is very disappointed she doesn't have gymnastics for another 3 weeks before the second session starts!

I have been so impressed at this club and how far she has come in just 12 weeks!  I have nothing but high praise to anyone who asks us about this club!

Here are just a few of the pictures that I have taken during this time.

Her very first day, she was excited and nervous.  She didn't know any of these girls, so this was a big step for her.

I love this picture!  Super-C!

The team leo!

Very first meet!  It was kind of like a parents meet, just to show what they can do.  Super cute!

Another action shot!

Pumpkin patch

We spent a day up at a local pumpkin patch/petting zoo.  I have never been there before but always heard great things!  We went up with my Brother, sister in law, niece, newphew and mom.  The kids had a blast!  They didn't know which way to run with the animals!  Then we got treats, and a bounce house.  And finally picked out our pumpking and squash!

These are just some of the pictures I took that day!  And two of my absolute favorites below!

Halloween/Fall 2014

I know this is well past, I will be updating quite a bit since I haven't been on here for a while.

I love Fall time!  I love the smells, decorating, the food!!!

Some Pumpkin Carving action!  Very intense work ;)

Poor Roxie, I am not one to dress my dog up, but I saw this and just had to ONCE!  She HATED it!  She kept it on for about 20 minutes, but kept trying to bite it off!  What a cute little bumble bee!

The kids had a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch.

The whole crew(including my neice and nephew), We did not plan it, but ended up with two Iron Mans and two spider (wo)mans!
