Random Photos

Just some random photos from this week. Grace and Garrett had their Christmas progam at school this week. It went a little too long for Garrett. He was done! Then Gracie turned nine this week. My uber talented friend Julie taught a scrapbooking class to a group of third grade girls!! Gracie *loved* it!!

Merry Christmas!!!!!

He's Five!!!!

It has actually been a couple of weeks since he turned 5, but I still can't believe it. It has been 5 years since he was that little baby with a head full of red hair! He has matured so much in the past year and he is a little boy who loves to play xbox and soccer. I just can't believe this is my baby! Posted by Picasa

I Scrapped!!

I know, it's a miracle! I took the time to sit down and just scrap for a few minutes, they are very simple, but I scrapped!!

O Give Thanks Unto The Lord

The kids had their Thanksgiving parties at school on Friday. Garrett's teacher read a list of things each of them were thankful for. Garrett is thankful for mommy, daddy, Gracie, and strawberries. Gracie read an essay she wrote from the viewpoint of a turkey convincing you not to eat him. Apparently you can turn into a turkey by eating one. I made little place cards for the children in Garretts class, it was so much fun!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

My Little Man

Little Boys are soooo much different than little girls. I get to learn all about Thomas the Train, Spiderman, and Nascar! Today at school his class sang praise songs and Garrett was front and center singing his little heart out. There is no sweeter sound than hearing your child praise God. There may be alot more challenges raising a boy, but the reward is so worth it. I have a happy and active boy who loves God, his mom and dad, spiderman, and chicken nuggets (according to his art work his family enjoys eating chicken nuggets together)!

Stand In The Rain

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
Stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day what's lost can be found
You stand in the rain.

Everytime I hear this song it reminds me of this photo of Gracie. Sean and Grace were playing basketball in the rain and she was getting frustrated because she wasn't getting something right. She stayed out there though. She almost gave up, but I told her that Sean was not going to always make things easy for her. She needed to push herself to learn how to do things. She stayed and you can see how determined she was in the photos that I took. So when Rhonda ( blogged about this song it inspired me to blog about it also. I hope that Gracie always has the courage to stand in the rain and not take the easy way out. Posted by Picasa

Old McDonald Had a Farm

Garretts class went to the fair to see Old McDonalds Farm. They had a blast feeding the animals! Garrett tried to feed the camel, and the camel took the cup and the food! The sliding pig was a huge hit also!

Soccer Season Is Here!!!

Garrett is just fun to watch, and Gracie has really found her game. She is so athletic, and soccer really shows it. She runs hard, kicks hard, and just plays hard. I love soccer season!
