campbell is 2 1/2 and might crave attention? obviously she is a bit camera shy. :) she is my third child. she is full of spunk, independence, and creativity. she loves to color on herself, (like i said, creative) although we are breaking her of that habit. she talks all the time, and one of her most favorite things to do right now is "call mam-maw"- my mom. it doesn't matter if she's at work or not, we will call. she really is a crack up, but i will say is a challenge for me a lot of the time...
p.s. just want to CLARIFY that this picture is by NO means announcing that we are expecting another child. i know a lot of you "read" into things, but really we are just playing "mommies" and that is all. I am NOT PREGNANT! :)
you can start praying for us now, because she is in my cousin's wedding next weekend. i am just not sure what to expect from her. she can be a bit sassy and moody, so we'll see. no worries claudia. we will do our best to get the job done. :)
again...i am so blessed to get the pleasure of being a mommy. went to park city today to get calli's one year pictures done, and not one, but two persons asked me, "do all these children belong to you? how do you stay sane?" i chuckle because a dad of "one" asked me that second part...
was very proud of my children today. bribing came in handy this day...first a treat of a. anne's soft pretzels and secondly a trip to the toy store to "look" at toys for christmas was the reward. i am sure we did look funny. 2 children in my triple stroller, and 2 sitting on the floor, (of picture people) napkin in lap, quietly eating yummy pretzels. fabulous. and i even liked the pictures. ;)

i was getting ready to take kaden to school this morning, and was headed out afterwards to post flyers...you got it...actual florescent LOST DOG flyers, and matt called. he found millie in the manure spreader. now i hate to be pessimistic, but i can't imagine she was there the whole time? we scoured our farm several times yesterday, and even scoured the neighborhood several times...and she never barked or anything? hmmm. i would think she needs to be tied all day today...just because. :) needless to say, our prayers had been that Jesus would keep millie safe wherever she was, and that she would return home...the kids are overjoyed, and just another small token of thanks to Jesus! now...i need to get my oil changed and call all the spca's to let them know she's found...i needed another task for the day. ha. mis.

so, first it was Blackey disappearing. Then a week and a half ago millie cut her hip on a chicken house litter machine (of some sort), and she had to go into surgery to repair it. yikes. she came home the same day, and was running around like normal. no ill effects at all. today she is gone. matt unties her in the morning when he is outside, and he realized she wasn't around about 9 am. schools were called. spca was called. police were called. i think we shouldn't have a dog...i guess? what would you take from our dog experiences? :) so, once again kaden is getting teary eyed at the thought of millie not returning. his heart is so tender, it's precious. we need to give him a break to, eigh? :) so...we look at this video remembering millie when she was just weeks old. she is 8 months old already... we hope we get to see her again. love, kaden, kaycee, campbell, and calli...
cry out in the night,
as the watches of the night begin;
pour out your heart like water
in the presence
of the Lord.
Lift up your hands to him
for the lives of your children,
who faint from hunger at the head of every street.

To my sweet girl. I love your laugh, your giggles, your snuggliness, your smiles, and the way you look at me out of the corner of your eye...I am so thankful for your life...thankful that God preserved your life in my womb...and during delivery...
We had a family party here on Friday night...we even snuck in a couple cousins from N.C. It was so grand...(we wish you N. Carolina'ers could have ALL been here!) No fancy cake this time. Just some yumm-o pumpkin whoopie pies. It looks like we didn't even let her dig into it...oops. Poor fourth child. :) Thanks for all the gifts, and outpouring of love on her...

can you feel the chaos and excitement in the air? can ya? :)

Anyway, Matt and I were saying good-bye to Kaden, sent him off into school, and turned around, and right before our eyes, some nice lady, scooped up Blackey, and said, "Where did you come from?" and got in her car WITH OUR CAT! Can you believe it? This lady picked our cat up, right off the sidewalk, in front of our eyes, and drove away...with Kaden's favorite cat...Matt and I were kind of in disbelief, and as she got in our car, he said, "Do you think Kaden is going to be upset Blackey got taken?" I thought "maybe he'll forget..." Boy...was that wishful thinking.
The first thing he asked about was Blackey when he got off the bus...So, I told him the news, and he's been crying ever since. He just asked me if we "could put signs up around the community"...I told him we can talk to daddy about that. :) Feel free to write any advice to me here. :) I debated about not letting him know...but didn't think I could not tell anyone the story, because I think it is kind of a riot...She didn't look around, and inquire, or anything, just swiped the cat...
This is one of the few pictures we have of Blackey. Kaden misses her so much all ready. He is still crying. Bummer.
I was inspired this morning, during an early morning jog. Found this song, quite by accident. Burned thru some data then, but it's oka...
This song is helping me be a better wife. mom. daughter. sister. friend. period. It is also helping me clean my house. :)) and my kid'...
