Nothing says Christmas Like a little Nerf Gun Fight!!

Abby and Ethan love and I mean LOVE to play with the Nerf Guns. Last night it was these two against Daddy and I was the official reloader. :) They laughed so hard they could hardly hold their guns up. :

Can't you just see him saying "Hey Daddy!! You shot me!!"

So from our crazy house to yours, Merry Christmas!

Love These Two

The kids love to be outside with us while we are working.  They love helping but more importantly they love just being there.  I love watching them play together.  Hide and Seek or Cars are their favorite things to play right now. 

This particular day they were playing hide and seek outside with us while we worked on clearing the land near the pond.  One might ask, where would you hide in the woods when all of the leaves have fallen and you can see everywhere in all directions.  Ethan figured it out.  He squatted down and pulled his hate over his eyes and was very still.  After all, if he can't see Abby, then she can't see him right?  Precious.   Abby played along and called for him and pretended like she couldn't find him.  He couldn't hold it in and giggled ever so softly.  When she finally "found" him, he screamed with excitement!!

Some precious Girl Time

After a wonderul time at a Cat in the Hat Birthday Party Abby and I decided to walk around downtown. She is so beautiful. I love her smile.

Is this not a Sr. Picture Pose???
This was her idea. It scares me a bit how natural it looks to be right next to a motorcycle. She will never ride one as long as she lives with me! :)
This reminds me of the Jungles of Suriname. I pray that God uses her in a might way!!

Uncle Alan's House

We had so much fun at Uncle Alan's today. Even though we missed you being there we still so had much to explore! The weather was a little chilly so we took cover in your barn!! We had no idea you had so much hay to climb on!!

Pure Joy

This is what makes me happy. The joy on their faces. The thrill of thinking they are driving that car..and fast! We have fun times at the state fair and can't wait until next year!

Do I see Football in his future?

For the first time ever (that I can remember) Rose Bud played Football in Little Rock. That meant that my little Tristan (who is now driving which means I am OLD!) would be playing a game that I could attend!! Oh, how excited we all were to get to go to see Tristan's team play! And I might add that they won against the Arkansas Baptist Eagles! Whhhhooohhoo!! LOVE IT! My heart was a little torn because I have friends on both comes first !

While the game was going on, Ethan had a little game going on the sidelines. There was a little area where the other kids would play a little ball. One of the kids actually let Ethan wear his helmet! Ethan was none the wiser and believed it to be true that he was a REAL football player! It was so sweet because those boys treated him as one of their own. They would tell Ethan what to do and if it was his turn to tackle he would do his best and those boys would fall as if they had been hit by the biggest football player ever! Ethan loved it! I do believe I see some football in our future!! Needless to say he was out like a light that night...and dreamed of some Friday Night Lights! :)

Happy Halloween!

We took lots of pictures this morning but since I do not have permission from the other kid's parents I will not post their pictures. Abby was such an adorable lady bug!! Today she will get to trick or treat with the older kids at her school! They form a path for the kids to walk through in the gym and hand out candy!! Abby will love it!!

Camping at the Lake House!!

This summer we have really enjoyed staying at Todd and Karen's lake house. Abby has just now (now that Summer is over) decided she likes the boat and even likes Daddy driving. She asks to go back every day! I love this pictures because it shows how much Todd loves our kids and how much Ethan loves him.

I know two little turkeys that got in the powdered doughnuts that morning. :)

Abby loved hanging around with the older girls!! She felt so big!!
