Yesterday, I went through my friends and made a "block list". A list of people I never care to see their updates and they will not be able to read my updates.
I feel a little bitter about the situation and maybe I should just not get on Facebook so much, would that solve the problem? I didn't have much to read when I logged on this morning? And even started wondering what so and so that I never talk to is doing today :)
Life is too short, I need to spend less time on Facebook and more time with God.

This year I am thankful for:
1. My God and Saviour. He choose me before time and everyday I do not deserve His love. Because of Him I get to look forward to the best gift of all, eternal life!!
2. My Husband. He's my love, my best friend, my protector, my provider, my babies daddy, he's everything.
3. My Kids. Owen and Jenna are the best things in the world. If you don't have kids you are missing out on the best love of all!
4. My Family. ALL of them, KY and CO! I have so many people that love me that I am so lucky. Most families now a days are broken. My family has tons of people and we are all close. I am so lucky.
5. Growing up in a Christian household. Sometimes I sit and think about how God picked me to grow up surrounded by His Word. I have to stop sometimes because it drives me nuts. I think it's like I won the lottery before I was even born. God has blessed my family so much.
6. Our Health!
7. My Church. My friends.
8. Rob and I having jobs and being able to pay all our bills :)
9. Computers, internet, cell phone...
10. All the good food...I'm gonna eat like it's the last Thanksgiving!

I won't buy the "processed, dipped in chlorine" apples that are pre-cut either. I've also heard bad things about the pampered chef peeler. Any suggestions??

Wednesday morning I got home about 6:10 a.m. (yes a.m.) from teaching Jazzercise. Rob is waiting on me to walk in the door so he can go to work. As he passes, he give me a kiss and here it is, he says... "Jenna's awake and I didn't do it"!

About 5 minutes of crying I went in her room, I even stopped to get a kleenex and wipe her off. Her face was DRY!! She was just in there doing a fake, I don't like this one bit cry!
So, is 18 months to young to do a "time out"? After her punishment, she sat on my lap and ate her chicken pot pie (okay, some of it)!!

It's been forever since my last post, I never have the time and when I do I'm too tired and ready for bed. The kids keep me moving constantly. Jenna has now become a "tornado through the house toddler" and I started remembering Owen doing all the things she is. It's funny and a blessing how God clears our memory of the bad days.
I have something new to tell my mom about Jenna everyday and I'm always so excited to tell her. Like: she learned how to twirl in a circle and get dizzy today, she can't stop making messes, she can't stop eating cheese, she pretend talks on the phone and pretends reading random papers. She had a couple 1st times this weekend: Her first car wash (see pic), and her first time at Petsmart. She never moved during the car wash she just sat there eyes wide. In Petsmart she ran around the whole time talking and petting animals. Everyone in the store thought she was so cute. She wouldn't stop, one sentence out of her mouth was "puppies, kitties, bunnnies, meow, puppies, fishes, puppies, laugh, kitties, meow, laugh" I'm laughing thinking about it.
Owen loves being a big brother, the upside to all the messes around the house is that her and Owen play together. They go in his room, he helps her on the bed and they just talk and play up there while I clean the house. Everytime we eat at the table he wants to sit by her, in the mornings he goes in her room and sings the Good Morning song to her. He's still my baby though. He's the best cuddler and randomly tells me that he loves me, he makes me feel so special and important!!
So my post was not gonna be about the kids at all :) Maybe later I'll write what I was gonna write! Gotta go Jazzercise!

I have to say that Bible school was a little more hectic (not stressful), than vacation was. I was in the 1-2 year old class and every one of them were attached to their mommies. So our time was mostly spent averting them from screaming at us, lol. The best time was when we brought out the cookies and juice, me and Rebecca and Wendy got to chat for a while and just chill! The kids did pick up on a few Bible facts during the week like "Lazarus got tied up..." -Vincent Whalen He was referring to when Lazarus died, the picture in the book had him wrapped like a mummy. They also learned Zacheus was little and liked to climb trees! It's amazing to watch a child slowly learn God's word. They can only take little bites of it at a time.
Vacation was so much fun and I loved just hanging out at the pool and beach with the kids. By Friday they LOVED the sand and ocean so much. It was a little crazy for mommy every now and then but I handled it okay thanks to mom and the other girls that helped, Thanks you all! I got to relax a little one morning when mom stayed in the room during nap time and I went swimming with Owen. Besides that I relaxed at night after their bedtime (which is what I do at home :)! Not complaining though, it was wonderful. Can't wait for next year, Rob is going to spend more time there with us.
Things are back to crazy normal! Hopefully, I can loose some of the weight I gained at Folly Beach!
Thanks for the trip Mom and Dad! We missed you Rob and are so glad to be at our HOME with you again!

The real reason for my post is because I'm so sad right now. Thinking about how my bff Melissa is leaving me and moving to Louisville. I know we'll always keep in touch and hang out often but it won't be the same. You take for granted people that are always there for you. She has been and will always be a special person to me and I'm going to miss her so much. It's really starting to sink in. With her leaving is also Ashley!!! Ashley's moving to NC! GNO will never be the same. Ashley always has a smile on her face and ALWAYS makes me laugh. I love both of you girls.

We had a few major issues:
1-3. the lady across the isle passed out and everyone congregated around us for about 30 minutes, at the same time this is going on Owen stuck my itouch in his soda! After everything calmed down, Jenna's sippy cup exploded all over the foreign lady sitting in front of us. Then a while later something starting dripping on me and the milk had exploded all over the ceiling too!
4-6. Plane was delayed, got on the plane, got off the plane, walked across the airport, plane was delayed again, got on the plane! Then Owen spilt his soda everywhere! We made it home shortly after that :)
The stay at Grandma's was great however. We miss everyone so much and wish we could be there everyday to hug and kiss them. The kids love them so much! We took them to Heritage Square and the Children's Museum. Amee took me to Zumba which we walked out of and went spinning! The food was awesome too!
Jenna Update: When they are this small something new happens all the time. She says "aww oh" when something happens and if you say "Jenna, do you need a diaper change?" she shakes her head side to side! Walks everywhere and loves to be the center of attention.

She is my baby girl and I'm so sad she is walking and pulling on my clothes! I will never be prepared for these growing milestones, I think I'll always be shocked, excited and sad.

I tried to talk Rob into doing the "let me sleep in and him cook breakfast" every Sunday. We compromised and are going to take turns!! Hooray, a win for me!!
The kids are awesome! Owen kept saying it's "mommy's day" which he thought it meant my birthday and keeps wondering about the cake. Jenna has been in a great mood all day. She is really starting to get into reading books and she thinks so hard when looking through them. She's been walking a lot more this past weekend and will probably be a full blast walker in a few days.
It's been such a "me" weekend that I've really forgotten about my own mom which didn't want anything for Mother's day. I love you, I love you, I love you Mom! You are the greatest mom and best friend ever!!
Rob and I also discussed starting to give Owen chores! Not sure what chore or what compensation/prize...I'll blog about that later. I'm sure if Grandma is reading this she will probably give us an ear full later :)

I always have K-love on, I sing along and think about God, my Savior the whole ride. Sometimes I don't even go over my Jazzercise set because I'm too busy thinking about the words to the songs. I am so happy that I have found a small way to fit God, who should be my number 1 into my crazy schedule. And now a month later I can recognize the bands, singers and songs! I have NEVER listened to anything but hymns as worship songs so this is a change but, I enjoy the peaceful ride and feel closer to him. It also make me think about him more and more throughout the day because I'm always in the car! Not bad music you should try it.
Prayer request: I am praying hard for my friend who has to go into major surgery in May. Please pray for her as well! I am heart broken that she has to even go through this and know that God will lead her out safely.

A little bit later we went to wake Jenna up and realized that daddy had put her pj's on backwards last night and she looked hilarious!! Probably had to be there but I want to remember these memories forever.
Wednesday, March 11, 2009
I am REALLY enjoying just worrying about teaching the perfect Jazzercise set, hanging out with my family and doing part-time bookkeeping. In the back of my mind I know Rob will support me if I ever want to do it again and that is peace enough.
I was going to just write about how much fun we had playing outside at Mamaw's all day yesterday but decided to go deeper instead!

It Started with the draft and don't forget this is all day all weekend. Then came pre-season, we must watch pre-season! Next year it was the Pro-bowl which came with the beginning of Fantasy Sports. Then we had to watch more games than just our 2 teams. In between all these we had UK basketball, Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche. Monday night football used to be a "no" unless the Broncos were in, now it's a must. Sunday night football later came as a must watch as well. Oh, I can't believe I forgot SportsCenter! We also Tivo NFL Live to watch everyday. Our Tivo is backed up with John Elway's greatest games/moments in anchient history. 4 fantasy teams this year and I thought I already knew when and what to expect with the season. To my surprise I didn't! The "free agency" (started at midnight yesterday) if you haven't heard). We've been tracking every minute of it and frequently refresh the screen to see updates.
All that said, I really love my husband :)

I needed to write this down so that it can be documented!

My Baby boy is 3 years old now he's over half the height of his daddy who is 6'3". It's so much fun to listen and talk to him. He's got so much to say and is truly a little person. He got a John Deer Gator for his birthday or "green jeep" as he calls it. He has decided that mommy can park her jeep on the street because he needs to park in the garage in case it rains! He is still my baby and secretly I want him to be a momma's boy.
Jenna is such a girl, at granny's house the other day she got the toy bin out and threw everything on the floor except the dolls and teddy bears. She's 10 months old now. Her and Owen had a blast at Jr. Jazzercise last weekend and we will be going back every time they have it. Teaching kids to be active and play with others; with great instructors at the price I pay a sitter, can't pass it up! They both fell asleep on the way home.
Rob and I went to Gatti Town for Valentines day although I felt bad at the end I was so excited to get all the tokens, play every game without keeping an eye on kids or having one on my hip. We acted like kids all night and it was so nice to act younger with each other again. I cherish every minute alone I get with him these days.
We have no big plans this weekend and I'm bummed it's going to be so cold. I'm really excited to go to Kerie's house friday for a play date with some girlfriends!!
