I'm back!! It has been way too long and there has been so many changes in our house! Ayden is now 7 and in first grade. He is taking piano, playing basketball, baseball and soccer! We are most proud that he also makes straight As! He is such a joy and we could not be more proud!

Keaton will be 5 in April and is following in his big brothers foot steps with staying busy. He is playing soccer, baseball and is now taking gymnastics. He started pre-k this year and is doing great! He has started reading!!! I can not believe that my baby boy has gotten SO big!

Blake is still working at ETTL and taking classes. He stays so busy coaching both boys and helping me drive them all over the world! Ay and Kea LOVE their daddy and are with him non stop!

I am staying at home and keeping 3 babies. Jacob is 9 months, Gavin is 6 months, and Madison is 3 months. I have the best of both worlds. I get to make money and be here when the boys need me.

I promise to upload pictures soon. Blake bought me a MAC and I am still not quite sure how to use it;) I am going to try to keep up with my blog but as much as we are on the "go" I am not promising anything!

What Do You Think?


I stopped by the gas station to get an American Classified to wrap my Christmas decorations in. As I was wrapping an add for a surrogate mothers caught my eye. As a joke I told Blake that I was going to do it to pay for his college. Out of curiosity I did a little research on the subject. I was really surprised at how common that surrogacy is!

I want to know what you think! Would any of you ever do it? The going rate is anywhere from $15,000-$30,000 and some pay housing, food, and some other expenses. That is a lot of money for 9 months! I love to be pregnant and I would love to help someone bring the most precious gift in to the world.

Let me know what you think!

A Fun Day At The Turkey Shoot!

This weekend we took the boys to their first turkey shoot. It is a fundraiser that one of the local boyscout troops host every year. You have got to soot a metal target to make a flag come up. If you hit the target you win a turkey. It was a lot of fun but the boys were a little disappointed because they thought they were going to get to shoot a real turkey!

Ay and Kea were not real sure if they wanted to get close!

Keaton, Hunter, and Ayden taking a pony ride before they went to "shoot" their turkey.

Keaton's 1st time to shoot a gun! Papa was so proud!

Ayden is such a perfectionist that he got really mad when he did not hit the target!

Eddy, Blake's dad, was so funny. Blake hit the target so he went back and shot till he hit one. Can't be out shot by your baby boy!

I even tried! I don't think that I could have hit the broad side of a barn with that gun!!

The boys claiming their turkey. They are getting big so fast! It will not be long and these three will be sitting in their own deer stand. I wish I could keep them little forever!

My Famous 5 year old!!

For thoughts of you that do not know my five year old is famous. He was chosen to be KLTV's Everyday Hero. Ayden asked that his friend not bring him presents to his birthday party but he wanted them to bring food so that he could donate it to the Troup food pantry. When KLTV came to interview him the Tri-County leader also did a story on him. I did not think much of it. I really thought that the article would be very small some where in the back of the paper. To my surprise when we got the paper this morning it was on the front page!! And it was a big article!!! I am going to add the link to the Tri-County Leader so that y'all can go read it. As of tonight it was not up yet but should be early a.m.

So Long Over Due!!

For the first time in over 2 1/2 years I am going to be with out all three of my boys!! From Friday afternoon till Sunday afternoon! I am stepping way out of my box by going on this trip. I really do not know any of the ladies that I am going with but I am sure I am going to have a blast!

So if you happen to be close to our house you might want to check on Blake to make sure that the boys don't have him tied up!

Ay & Kea's Photo Shoot

A friend of mine has recently started a photography business. When she called needing some older kiddos to shoot I gladly offered up mine! I think that my boys take the best pictures and I just love getting new ones! (that does not sound prejudice at all does it!) Anyways, I need help deciding which one to pick for Christmas cards!!

This is not our dog! It belongs to our friend who let us use their house to take pictures!

Getting back to normal!

I say this with caution but I think that things are getting back to normal! The boys are back in school and start swim lessons soon and Blake will be back at work Monday. Thank Goodness!

Time to go home! YEA!


Poor baby hurt so bad!
