I sent my little sweetie spicer beth off to preschool this morning! The child absolutely loves school (which may pose a problem with my intentions to homeschool, but I guess we'll cross that bridge when we get there!) I love that she loves it! It's such a great school and she just goes two days/week. I can handle two days, right?! ;) Can't wait to pick her up and see how her first day went! Btw the pic of me and her (lol)... We were supposed to be doing a hip popping pose together but I think by that pic she was done posing! Haha!
This little guy is constantly making me laugh! One thing he loves to do is do anything he knows he's not supposed to do and look at me and smile!! Oh my! He is ornery! I can't tell you how many times he rips the corner guards off tables, and this is a big "no-no"! Goodness gracious boy! He is ALL boy for sure! Another thing he really likes to do is open and close the bathroom door while it's being occupied by me! Lol! I mean, a momma can't even use the bathroom privately! Ha! I took this pic of him doing just that the other day. Such a mess but of course we love him oh so much! :)
Could God have blessed me with a more perfect daughter for me?! I just don't think so! She's absolutely the best! The girl has a heart of gold and a laugh that just sends happiness through your body! I love her so so much! Spicer is constantly telling me she loves me and that she loves her brother during our days at home. She loves to play and for me to play with her. When Jared or I play with her she just thinks its the greatest thing ever and gets so excited! She gets so excited about everything! The girl is full of life! The "Spice" of life! Here are a few things she's said recently, things I want to remember about this age of her life and share with her when she's older. :)To Daddy before meeting her teacher the other night: "Daddy you look really handsome." then to me in the car later. "Mommy, daddy looks really handsome tonight, Axl looks really or re"dy" cute, I look pretty and you look really workout-pretty (because I had just worked out!lol!) She is constantly saying sweet things or words of encouragement to others. The other day we were driving home and talking about one of her friends being out of town and she said, "Mommy it's sad when someone you love is out of town." Then she said, "Mommy some people don't have a house to live in." I said, "I know, it's really sad, What do you think we should do about that?" She said, in the sweetest little concerned voice," Well... we can't really carry a house to them while we walk, but maybe we could get a house truck to take them a house." She's so concerned and aware of the needs of others. Sometimes when we are getting everyone their food for supper she wants to help get everyone's plate ready before herself. She is such a servant! She also says the sweetest little prayers. She prayers for our family and different things she knows about, and thanks Jesus for dying on the cross. Oh, just warms my heart! I just love watching this child grow and become more and more like Jesus each day. I could go on and on but this is all I'll say for now. Thank you Jesus for choosing me to be Spicer Beth's mommy!

He loves playing with big sister! He also loves Ma's cows, he always says moo when we go over there and looks out in the pasture to see if the cows are there!

We love you our sweet Joe-Joe!
This past weekend me and Jared were able to getaway to Mt. Magazine for a night. It was great! We pretty much just ate, relaxed and chatted! I sure do love my sweet husband the lord has blessed me with! :)
Jared was really cracking me up in these pictures!
