Run/Walk for the Fallen.

This morning Danny and I participated in a run/walk for all the fallen soldiers. The people who sponsored the run wanted a mile to be ran/walked for each fallen soldier. The run/walk is taking place over 3 weeks in several different cities eventual ending in Washington D.C. Each participant had the choice to do 1 mile, 5 miles, or 10 miles. As many of you know during Danny's first Deployment several of his friends were lost. He thought it would be a great thing for us to do as a family. Of course Danny decided to run the 10 miles as I walked just one mile pushing both the kids. We are ever grateful for those who sacrifice everything they had for us to have our freedom.

8 Months!

Yesterday Ava turned 8 months. The time has gone by so fast. I am amazed at how much she has grown. Ava is such a blessing and brings such a sweet spirit in our home. Jack loves here so much and I am so thankful that he has taken to her.


Mom here are the pictures from enrichment on Tuesday. Sorry I have taken so long to post them.

Jack and His Cakes.

Yesterday I was cleaning out the pantry and I found this Christmas tree baking kit that I bought for Jack to make at Christmas time last year but never had the chance to make them since Ava came so close to Christmas and at the last minute we went home. So last night we made the cakes and decorated them. I know what you are thinking it is August and you are just making those but Jack had a blast and did a great job, which is all that really matters even if it is August. He was really looking forward to eating them tonight after we came home from young womens but when we walked in the cakes were gone. I was in such a rush to leave the house I forgot to shut the bedroom door to keep Roxy in. As you can guess she jumped on the counter and ate the cakes. Jack was in tears saying "you have to spank Roxy mom she was being a bad dog". I felt so bad since it was my fault she got to the cakes. Maybe next time Jack will get to eat his cake!!

I thought I would just post a few pictures of Jack and Ava since I haven't put anything up for a while.

Baby Number 3

I thought I would go ahead and announce that we are having our third child in February. This pregnancy was a complete surprise for us. We thought we were done and I started to give away everything that we were not using. I guess no one ever tells you once you give everything away you get pregnant again. I had my first ultrasound a week ago so I decided to post the small image of the baby. To me it just looks like a little blob but you can kind of see the head and the little feet. Sorry the image is a little blurry but I think you can pretty much see the baby. We will keep everyone posted on how things are going.
