I can't believe our baby girl is growing up so fast! Katelynd is becoming such a young woman. Well we all know what happens when they get older, their minds start to wonder even more than when they were 3. The Why's become just a little deeper in topic! So last Sunday, Katelynd approached me with a perplexing question. I toyed with answering. Katelynd will turn 11 this May. I began to ask her questions just to find out how much she really knew! The last time we had the big conversation it was left at mom and dad's germs react together to make a baby! Of course Heavenly father helps she said. Well the question I got was pretty deep for blog rating concerns so I won't repeat the question, but I'm sure your mind can create one! I was prompted to answer the question directly. Now mom and dad are just gross! And she questioned me again, "Well when does this happen, I didn't see it happen to get Lauren." Talk about deep! Then began the spiritual side of things, I assured her that this was very sacred between Husband and Wife, a Godly act! HA I turned the deep thinking around and threw the ball straight at her. She was ever so quiet. Then out of no where she asked me if she would have to teach her husband how to do this! For her sake I hope so! Now looking back at the situation I think Katelynd could of waited to know the details. She really didn't know as much as I was assuming. I even asked her if she has heard anything at school from her boy and girl friends. "No I never hear people talking about that, all the girls talk about is bras! She was naive which is OK! Since the big conversation I've notice she listens to her Dad more, she is more loving towards him. I've come to the conclusion that she realizes now that marriage is a partnership. Mom has the important role of carring the child but Dad also has a very important role. I hope this posting doesn't affend anyone. I blogged this to remember the details of the conversation. Just remember it is fine to know more than your children on some things! Innocence is OK! They have plenty of time to grow up and absorb all the things in this world!
Jason was on break for 3 weeks this December. It was nice to have him home. We didn't get to play too much this break but we sure got alot accomplished. We were able to go to Las Vegas and spend some time with our families. It was nice to not worry about school for a little while. This was on our way home from Vegas. We just needed a break from the long trip. I think we locked the kids in the car!
Have you ever had the feeling of being overwhelmed? Well I think I have finally reached that point. I have fallen off the blog wagon. I hope that I can catch up! So much has happened in the last 6 weeks. Christmas, a surgery, in-laws coming to town, renter's in Vegas that got up and left with no notice, a 24 hour trip to Vegas for nothing more than cleaning, painting and stressing. Then a 24 hour trip home with pneumonia. But Life is great! The kids are healthy, I think homework is finally caught up and I get to start working out again after my recovery from a right venous ablation with stab phlebectomy. I keep looking for the positive in life. I am finding "Joy" in the journey.
Just a little web site to keep our family and friends informed. Out in our new Hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri. We just all keep growing up and getting older. I am a mother of 4 fun loving active children. They sure keep me busy and I love every minute of it. We all have adjusted well out here in Missouri. Thank goodness we haven't seen any tornadoes though. Jason is very busy with Chiropractic school so I have been put in charge of the blog. I think he did that on purpose to teach me how to use the computer. Our family is so very blessed we love just to be with each other and having a little fun. Now we just try to get Dad to talk about other things besides Gross Anatomy and how our body works. But we love him all the same. We think of all of you often and miss you all(now i talk like a missourian).
Jason's step-mother Nancy gave this to me before we moved. I just refinished it! It was a dark oak in color. I just stripped it to the natural wood and sanded it really good. I love it!
Jason gave a facelift to Jakes car!
This Red truck was made for Jason by his Dad about 28 years ago. His dad Jimmy is very artisitic and cut the wood and built this truck. Jason loved his red truck he always played with it, rode it and wrecked it. Now his PaPa Jimmy and MeMa Nancy have givin' it to Jacob to enjoy. Jacob plays with this Monster truck all the time, when I see him play with it makes me think if that is the way Jason played and imagined too. So Jason decided to give it a facelift. Jake got to pick the color! We are just waiting to put on the flames!

Jake's New Truck
Here's the new and improved truck. We should have painted it white or the same color as our walls because Jake can't keep it off of them.
