Tired of being sick!

My family and I have been sick for the past week! Please pray for our recovery. This has not been fun. Blaine is the one that suffers the most. I can handle it. Brenden is well now so hopefully we will follow in his footsteps soon. He does have that lingering cough though. Barry is beginning to show signs of our sickness. He usually doesn't get it though. We have a busy week ahead of us. I have to clean this messy house. We are having Thanksgiving here this year with both sides of our family!!!! I am ambitious not crazy! Off to do lots of things! Have a great day.

It is so hard to choose

Well, Saturday we had our family pictures made and she posted them on her webpage today. I am having a hard time deciding which of the boys I want! I hate that! I wish when it came to this I had all the money in the world for pictures, and I still would be broke! How do you choose one over another? I was not sure how some of them would turn out. Brenden is going through the you are not taking my picture without a fight or a lot of hard work to even get me to smile stage. Lots of thanks to his Nana for her hard work and Jenny's patience. We had fun though and will remember that time when we look at these pictures. That is what one of the purposes of life on this earth is the memories that we have with each other. Our priority is sharing the Gospel with the world. I love Jenny's ministry. She gets to combine 2 important things into one package. How exciting that must be. All out of the comforts of her home. I love that. That is what our homes should be. Not just a place to clean, eat, and sleep. Well, guess I am done rambling. I am not feeling well at all today so I think this will be pizza night for our family. Gotta go see if I can scrounge up some coupons.:) Oh here is where you can see our pictures:

My sweet boy.

Brenden is sick today. It is not often that he gets real sick, but today he is running fever and not feeling well at all. He missed his second tumbling class. I know if he knew it he would not be happy he had a blast at the first one. He practiced all last week so he would be ready for the next one and he is sick. That is how it usually goes, you commit to something new and someone gets sick. I hate it when my kids are sick. I rather them be happy and me have to deal with not feeling well. I do enjoy the extra snuggle time though. These days you have to take it from him when he will let you. He is all boy!

Pretty proud to call him my dad!

Here is a link to Monticello Live's interview with my dad. I am proud to call this man my father. He puts everyone before himself. If you need something he is there. He sacrificed to provide the best his girls. He has supported me in every decision even if he wasn't so sure it would work out and if it didn't he never spoke a word he was just there to help pick up the pieces. He is kind but firm and is not afraid to speak his mind or admit that he may be wrong. He is a man of integrity. I love you dad.

How precious are my boys! I am am sure I am allowed to brag. It was a first, Brenden actually wanted his picture taken. He sure has mood swings. I hope this does not mean he will take after his mom. Hopefully he will outgrow them or they will soon outgrow us!
Now that Blaine has experienced the jumper he thinks he needs to jump all the time. So funny, but you better hold him tight!
