Potty Break

Potty time! I just LOVE this picture, and who knows, I may need it for a bribe some day! When we first got Coby potty-trained, the child would NOT go outside! What little boy does NOT like to pee outside? Literally, the first time we went riding (where there is no public restroom) the child held it for 5 hours! He didn't go potty until we stopped at a little gas station on the way home!
As you can tell.....he has changed his mind now! Daddy did a good job supervising too!

Another riding weekend........

Well, we took the boys riding yesterday. First time we've been since Cory's latest "accident." (Although, that has been SEVERAL weeks.) The first pic is of Dylan. I know, i know! He's getting TOO big for that bike. But OMG! I can't believe the prices on the "next size up" bikes!
Daddy and Coby just riding around the track looking cool. They even brought their fishing poles and got to do a little fishing. According to Coby, they caught 4! According, to Daddy, they only caught 2. Isn't Coby a little young to start telling "fishing stories?"

This is Hunter on his bike! He was doing great, yesterday! I don't think he popped the clutch ONE single time! YEA, Hunter! And he did a little "standing up" while riding, which i think is totally awesome! Even got a little air, on a few of the hills. We will give all the credit to his new riding boots!

Matt N Shannon

As many of you know, Cory and I have friends who are currently in Iraq, Matt and Shannon. Coby, has only met Shannon TWICE. But it's never just "Matt" according to Coby, it's ALWAYS "Matt-n-Shannon." (I think it's because the second time he met her, they brought Coby a fishing pole.) Anyway - I had Coby make a short video to send to Matt and Shannon, last night. I've had a few problems uploading it, so you will have to follow the link. Enjoy!

Photo Session

We FINALLY got our picture CD from where we had them taken by Heaven To Earth Photography! I am SO excited! I've already ordered tons of prints online, had Mother's Day cards made with them. It makes me too too proud of my boys! :) (Sorry, Brandy & Jay, I will try not to be too sappy on this one.)

High School

My 14 year old, Dylan, informed me LAST NIGHT that we have to enroll him for high school TONIGHT! I can NOT believe I have a child going into high school. I can NOT believe how fast the time with him has flown by. I can still remember when he was a baby and my only child. I am so proud of him. He's turning into a wonderful young man. I feel SO blessed that God has given such a great kid to me. I can't imagine life without him!
(The picture above is Dylan rapelling at one of his Boy Scout campouts.)

As we get ready to do our errands on Saturday, daddy walks out of the bedroom wearing his camo bibs. Coby starts in "i want to wear mine like daddy's!" I'm sure he won't want to dress like daddy forever, but while he is little and enjoys it, i want lot's of memories of it! I just love this picture of them! It is TOTALLY BOTH their personalities!

My Big 3 Year Old

So, we went and had our pictures taken by a professional photographer last weekend. She was ABSOLUTELY wonderful and I would recommend her to EVERYONE! She did a great job - this is just one of the MANY pictures.

My Family

This picture was taken last September at one of our family reunions. This is me and my gang along with my parents, my neice and my great-neice! We had a lot of fun that day. Food and fishing, what more could we want?

Another Easter Post.....

So Easter Sunday we are sitting in service and Karla says "you know the kids are coming out to sing this morning, right?" I said "NO! Preschool or Kids church?" (Thinking it's either going to be Coby or Hunter.) Karla says "Preschool." So, next thing i know, here come the little preschoolers, all decked out for Easter Sunday, walking into big church holding on to their rope. Look how cute Coby looks! He's smiling like this might be something he will enjoy. Well, Dylan just HAPPENED to have his camera with him and i BEGGED him to go up front and take some pictures for me. The only problem, is Coby saw Dylan and started crying! All the other kiddo's are singing their songs about Jesus and Coby just stood there and CRIED! I felt horrible! So, I started crying FOR him.
This is Coby walking out of church, after they were done singing. See, you can tell he had tears! Poor baby!:( But he was SO cute!

We ALL had a GREAT Easter weekend! The first picture is of me, and my cute little neice, Summer. She NEVER cuddles with me like this - so we had to get a picture for proof that she DOES like me!

This is Hunter at our church Easter egg hunt on Saturday. Probably his last Easter egg hunt, I'm afraid next year he will think he is too "old" to do it anymore. :(

This is Dylan on Easter morning. The Easter bunny brought him a shirt that says "A Hunter's Nightmare-they can run and they can hide." And has a deer in camo on in.

This was Coby's 1st Easter egg coloring experience. He did GREAT! He had 13 different colors to choose from. (Too many!) But it was fun and he liked it. Now, all weekend he has been asking to see the Easter bunny, because he wants to give the easter bunny these eggs. LOL!
Hope all of you had a great Easter too!

Taking A Look Back

So, as I glanced back through my pictures, I came across this one. This is one of my favorite pictures of Coby! It was taken in May of 2008, almost a year ago! I can not believe how much he has grown and how big he is getting. How many changes we have gone through just in the past year. He's talking so good now, he can go potty all by himself now, he enjoys watching videos and movies now. (Some hunting and some Disney.) He sleeps in his own big boy bed. He likes sitting in daddy's deer stand. He likes playing outside with his 2 older brothers. How time flies! Oh, if they could just stay this age for awhile longer.....(sniff!sniff!)

Sesame Street Live

So, last Thursday Coby and I were able to go to Sesame Street Live at the BOK center downtown. It was great! I didn't tell Coby we were going until the night before. This is how the conversation went:
Me: Coby we are going on a date tomorrow night. Just me and you. And we are going to see Elmo, and Big Bird and Cookie Monster IN PERSON, NOT on TV!
Coby: (face lit up and very excited) YEA! I like Elmo!
The child was on cloud 9 all night!
So the next morning on the way to daycare I said "Coby, are you ready to go see Elmo and Big Bird tonight?"
My precious sweet son says "No, I just want to go see deer."


Anita, whom i work with, was also able to go with us and take her 2 year old grandaughter, Abby! Look how cute they are!

This is Coby and I! We had SO much fun! But NEXT year daddy HAS to go - there is NOTHING like seeing his little face light up when those characters are all on stage dancing and singing!

Shop Complete

Cory's shop is COMPLETELY done! YEA! As you can see, he's already starting the leveling around it.
I promise I'll start blogging about my kids soon! :)
