My movie star. She is so photogenic most of the time. And she loves posing for pictures...all you have to do is get the camera out and she is posing....now Alaina, she wants to see how it works..not be in front of it...lol.
I dont have any of Jason or Jack. Do you know how hard it is to get pictures of a 1 yr old and a 17 yr old?
Anyway, we didnt stay and hunt eggs or anything after church, we came home and I took paul to the ER while my mother in law watched the kids. (THANK YOU GRANNY AND PAPA) They got to hunt eggs with their cousins while they were there though so I think they had fun. (THANK YOU MIRANDA AND KK AND AUNT DUCKY!)
Today, while my husband was taking a nap, Jack and I got the garden started. We are starting brand new here at our house so we are having to turn it over with shovels before we till it. It is just too hard to til unless we do. So tonight we are awfully sore and tired. I will try to take some pictures tommorow if we do it and post them. We are also starting our own worm farm. I will try to post a link later but a cute story........
Jack and I would find worms as we were digging and we would tell Kylie. She would then put a glove on and very excitedly, run over and hold her gloved hand out so we could put the worm on it. Then she would very carefully so as not to drop it, go over to the bucket and drop it in. She done this several times. One time, we were watching her carry it over and she got to the bucket and dropped it in but instead of dropping the glove and going off to play, she leans over the bucket and says in a very sing song voice.." There you go, now you have all those nice friends to play with..." It was so cute and so Kylie. For those of you that know Kylie personally, you can imagine this. She was adorable. And so now we have about 20 or 30 "friends" in a bucket with dirt awaiting transplant to our worm farm...Very small scale (for our own use) worm farm. The kids think it is cool though.
For now, I am going to head to bed, since I have to get up early in the morning and grad Jacks school work. But Love and Prayers to everyone!

I know I have not been posting alot here lately. We have entered a busy season of our lives again and we are trying to adjust. I do have updates on the kids...they are all doing well. Kylie's urinary tract infection is gone..(thank God). Alaina is looking good. Jason is looking good. Jack is doing good.
Aside from that, we are just really really busy. Today is my mother in laws birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! We love you!
Anyway, just wanted to check in and let everyone know that we are okay.
Love and Prayers

My middle child turned 3 on the 10th. Alaina, you are my little shy bear, my angel bear, my rotten daredevil. You have scared me and your daddy more than we care to be scared and you are only three. You are full of life and joy and stubborn ownryness all in one.
You took your time deciding that you wanted to come into this world but when you decided you wanted to come out you came out. Youve been the same way every since. You dont do anything that you dont want to do until you want to do it and then there is no stopping you.
You arent scared of anything but scissors (the scar on your finger says why) and flyswatters...(inside joke). When Bubba Jack plays outside with you, your the one that wants more more more.....When he is tired and dizzy, you want to keep going.
You are my cuddle bear. You like to be snuggled and safe in mommy and daddys arms. But your getting so big. So big.
I am so happy that you are my daughter. I cant wait until you grow up and see how you turn out. My dardevil snuggly bear!
Happy third birthday.
(I dont have any pictures on this computer of Alaina when she was a baby but here are some recent photos of her. )
okay,,,blogger will not let me upload pictures right now so i will up load them later....
