Adorable Kids.....

I have taken out a little time this week and listened to my kids and what they say and how funny they can be. It has been so much fun doing that!I get so caught up in doing, doing, doing, that I forget to stop and enjoy the simple stuff. Cambree said Thank'd U so sweet when I gave her some milk and then she has been saying I "W"ove U. Awesome! Paisley, stands in a bar stool and looks and me with her hand stretched way over her head saying, "see mommy I'm bigger than you", like the chair didn't give her a good 6 or more inches head start. Then she would look at me and say stuff like, "I take care of her everday mommy, cause I am big". If you could just see her little eyes blinking as she is saying this so seriously. So funny to me and warms my heart. Kyler on the other hand is just being so sweet like helping me clean his room and watching over the girls. Such a big boy and growing up. I am so amazed at how time has flown by and my kids are growing up and I feel like I can't remember everything and don't have time to write down all there great moments so I just wanted to share a little bit of what I got this week.

Alabama Adventure Fun Day

Well to brief everyone in I am a Joybelle Counselor at my church. I have the ages 10 to 14/15! Suppose to be 9-12 years old but I can't get rid of some of my girls. I guess they love me to much. Yeah right! Anyways I always take them on 1 big trip or outing for a day and I try to let it be a big one when I can! They love it. This year I am moving a lot of my girls up and so we decided to go to Alabama Adventure before pushing them Reda's way. What a day...... hardly no sleep the night before and then what felt like 100 degrees we was in was not the best in the world. Anyways I was truly blessed to see some of the faces of my girls that I took because 3 or 4 had never been to an amusement park at all and I take them to their first and then to a water park too. They had some of the biggest smiles. I even would act crazier than they did, which is not hard for me! I made them skip to, "We are off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of oz", to which I had a girl even look at me and said there is no yellow brick road. You've got to be kidding me I said. She looked at me real funny but we all had fun. I really took good care of my girls with the sunblock and got myself pretty good but you see I had a shirt on and I could not handle the heat so I took it off to just wear my bathing suit top (please do not try to get a mental picture of what that looked like,ha) and forgot my back. I am so burnt on my back that I hate getting in the shower even 2 days later. It just stings! We all got red even where we put sunblock just couldn't keep enough sunblock on to protect us. As far as I am concerned 9 girls and 2 counselors were all dead tired by the time we got home but I loved every minute seeing some of the girls faces on roller coasters, tube rides, scramblers and other fun rides. I love parks and to see them love it too is so much fun.

Kyler Preschool Graduation

To long I know. I get a little behind. Just wanted to show off my little man that graduated preschool on May 15, 2009. I was so proud of him. Everything has went by so fast this year. When he started school last year, I was excited for him but scared to! I guess that is part of parenting. He had a good year but I can tell you one thing, he did not like getting up early and doing work. HA! He wants to work with his papaw everyday. Anyways, I was told once before that when your kids start school everything seems to start flying by and it did to me. I am really proud of him for all his accomplishments that he made this year.

Vacation 2009 Panama City Beach, Florida

Well I know it has been a long time since I have posted a blog. I have got to get with it. I just wanted to put a few pictures of our beach trip. We had a great time but the only bad thing that happened to us was Dwight deciding to jam his toes into the beach sand wall. To me, of course, was hilarious. I just couldn't help watch my husband fall and then I realized he was really hurt. He was a limper the rest of the trip. His little toes had swelled up on him and he hurt so bad and I know that I must be an awful wife because I would double over laughing every time I thought about what he did. His foot still hurts him some but is a lot better. Also you know when you go to the beach you can't wait to run from the cooler weather here to bake in the hot sun......well not so much for us. The high on Monday was 64 degrees and believe me we felt it with our shorts and tanks on. Tuesday a little better but like 72 with windy conditions which felt just as cold. Putt Putting was a little chilly that night but Cambree seemed to love "throwing" the ball across the greens. It was quite a trip with 3 kids against 2 parents. I loved it, just spending time with my kids without all the hassle of everything that is at home. Well here are some pictures of our trip and I will post and show off my little man with his preschool graduation tomorrow.

Last night Paisley wanted me to take a bath with her and so of course I did. She loves to wash my feet and back and fix my hair with water! Well after I got in she was just talking away and looked at me funny and just kept talking. Then she turned facing me and sat on top of my legs and looked right at me with her sweet little face and so cute like said, "Mommy your BIG", I said what and of course she repeated it. I thought well how embarrassing. If that wasn't enough as I stood up she went to the cabinet and got me a towel and looked at me again standing there and said, "Mommy, your Big" again and walked right out as if she hadn't said a word. Of course the last time she said it, I chalked it up to I am tall. I at least hope that is what she meant. Well you know what today is, "starting a diet day"! I might make it "1" day! Sure hope I loose my 10 pounds I've been holding onto!

Scooby Doo

Well I will just let you know how a 5 year old mind works. At least my 5 year olds mind!!!! He went with Mema and Uncle Randy to watch Nicholas play a ballgame Thursday night. Randy's dad also rode with him and he and Kyler sat in the back. On there way home Kyler wanted to spend the night with them and since I wasn't at home they decided to run by our house and get him some school clothes. As they came home they came in the back way to our house by passing through by Stickland's Building Supply. To fill you in on the funny part, Jerome's has a grandson named Jaron and Randy and everyone calls him Dooby. As they was coming through there Randy said there is where ole Scooby Doo "Dooby" works. Of course, Kyler asked, Why does he work there? Of course Randy answer the logical question by saying to make extra spending money for himself. Angela already knew what Kyler was thinking and started laughing. Kyler then looked over at Jerome and said, does Shaggy work there too? Angela started laughing even harder because Randy and Jerome just didn't get it and Randy ask who is Shaggy? Kyler said you know he wears a green shirt and he is the one that is always scared with Scooby Doo. At this time Randy and Jerome started laughing and they had to explain about nicknames and how Jaron got his. I thought it was too cute not to share the mind of my 5 year old! I would of loved to of seen his face, trying to figure out if Scooby Doo and Shaggy was actually that close to our home.

Paisley's NEW words!!!!

Just a quick update. I was at my mom's yesterday and I seen Paisley, of course doing something that she shouldn't be doing, digging through my purse. It was all over the desk!!!! When I got to her she had some change in her hand and I told her to just drop it down in there because I was in a hurry and she likes to take her precious time (like her dad, ha), and anyways she was looking at the money and said this is a quarter (drop) and this is a "nuckle" (drop) and I said, hunny that is a "Nickel" and she looked up at me with her pretty eyes and said uh huh it is a "nuckle", I know and nodded her head up and down...... like she knows. My mom even got tickled!!!! I just let it go and chuckled inside. It was sweet and to here my mom kinda giggle was even better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sometimes wonder where my kids get there language.......Gosh I hope it is not me!!!!!! To anyone who knows my dad he has a word for every part of the body that some would never think of calling it by that name. As I was a kid if I hurt my private part my dad's name for it was the BOX! Now why you ask, I clearly have no idea. I am pretty sure my kids have heard him call it that, especially when changing a dirty diaper. Anyways to my point, this past Tuesday my kids where outside running on the porch, and of course as usual I heard crying and it was Paisley. Kyler of course ran in the house and she wasn't far behind him and when I turned to look at her and she was holding herself as if she had to pee. Kyler hurried and blurted out, "Paisley hurt herself, I said "WHERE" and he said so sweet in her FOX!!!!!" I, of course, just looked at him and said, What? He repeated it again and then Paisley said my FOX hurts real bad. I could help but laugh. It was so funny to me because I have never heard it called that! I asked her of course what happen and crossing over into a riding toy one of her feet slipped and she straddled it pretty hard. Well I just said Papaw doesn't call it that and we can say bottom, but as Kyler looked at me and said, Mom I know what it is called and it is a Fox! I just said lets keep that to ourselves but to me that was to funny not to share.

Hope your day is filled with laughter and mine is most of the time!!!!!!!

Women's Retreat!!!!!!

Well I just wanted to say thanks to Ider Baptist for the wonderful weekend I had. I was so blessed by Lisa's words and I have learned so much more about myself! For those of you who was there and for the one's who wasn't; my mom had another TIA, and yes I was totally upset. I felt so guilty for not being at home with her, but when everyone there took the time out to pray for her and my family I felt at home.

To all the ladies: I am so thankful to have been blessed by each of your prayers and my mother was blessed also.

To all my friends: I am thankful to each of you for your love and to care as much as you did and was there for me during my snot slinging melt down over my mom!!!!! HA!

Also on a great note my mom came home Sunday and I am greatful! That was the fastest recovery time that I can remember that she has had to only stay one night in the hospital and I truly believe GOD heard all the prayers of the women at the retreat.

I truly had a great time just laughing at all that happened over the weekend especially our sense of directions. I had a blast listening to Jenny and her humor! What fun!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who put this together,

Please "PRAY" for KYLER!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone please keep by baby Kyler in your prayers. He started Thursday with a high fever and that was gone by Friday and then he got boughts of the runs starting on Friday and then
saturday a little more and then fine again. So we went and celebrated Brent Tinker's 30th birthday and he ate really good that night. Just knew he was 100% better. Well that night he was up and down with his stomach cramping and hurting him and blood was in it very clearly during those times so we got an appt at doctor office Sunday morning. We had to take a sample and they had to prick his finger, to which he didn't like at all, but she is suppose to call us by Tuesday to let us know what type of bacteria infection it is. All day yesterday he felt good and played but this morning his stomach is hurting him again really bad. I just don't like seeing him like this at all and when I see blood it scares me too! Please just pray that they will call and tell me there is some medicine I can start giving him and he will get better fast. Thanks for all your prayers. GOD is good ALL the time!!!!!!!!!!

Dwight's EYE Surgery Part II

You are suppose to go back to get your eye's checked in 10 days after the contact bandages are removed, so here goes Dwight and I to chattanooga yesterday. I am a little nervous thinking, " I hope we haven't spent this kind of money and his eyesight is bad", but everything was great! The doctor did all the routine test and his eyesight is 20/20 but in one eye occassinally he was seeing 20/15! I was so relieved and excited for him. No more contacts and he can SEE!!!!!! They said he would continue to improved for the next 3-6 months. By that time I hope he can see even better. His eyes does get blurry when they get really tired and dry, but doc said that was normal and that would get better over time. I am just very excited for him because he has been wanting this done for a "LONG" time.

February 20th was my 31st birthday! I had a great time. My husband being so sweet made me pancakes that morning! He even took the time out to cut them out with my heart shape cookie cutter. of course Paisely helped him. Before I could eat them they sung "Happy Birthday" to me. I know probably corny but it was sweet! Paisley thought she did the biggest thing in the world and she helped me blow my candle out. That night we went out to eat to MiCasita and enjoyed a family dinner. So nice! Here is some pics of my pancakes!

Dwight's EYE Surgery

Well here is a picture of Dwight after eye surgery! This was taken that afternoon. You can see the uncomfortable feeling he is having in his face. Just wanted to let everyone see. He of course is doing 10 x better now.

Friday, February 20, 2009


Well, some don't know, but most do! Dwight and I spent Tuesday afternoon at TC Thompson emergency room with Cambree. Well, first of all this week has been wild! Dwight had eye surgery Saturday and finally was getting better by then and we was suppose to be going to the funeral home that afternoon and was in the process of getting the kids a bath. We was letting Cambree and Paisley take a bath and I had just walked out of the room when there was screaming going on. I feel really bad now because the first thought I had was, "OH, there fighting again", so Dwight got there first and started hollaring at me (which he never does) so I knew it was serious. I started running and when I turned the corner there was blood going every where which scared me to death. I finally got a close look and it was her tongue. So we called the nurse (which was not that concerned) because most cuts on tongue are not that bad! She told us to go to the emergency room if we was concerned and when you can see what appeared to be muscle looking veins in the cut I knew that was not normal. Well I am glad we went! We got there and of course the nurses and docs all said that 95% of cuts to the tongue heals fast and nothing has to be done. WRONG!!! The doctor finally got a good look at her tongue and said "OOH" she will have to be put to sleep through IV and let us get that put back together. I was like told ya so....... Anyways the IV was the worst part. She screamed and I cried! I know silly but I already felt so bad, "feeling this was all my fault"! Everyone kept saying how strong she was because it took us all to hold some part of her body still. I held her legs and Dwight held her right arm. See I wanted her to look at him and think your the one letting them do this to me and when they got done I picked her up saying, "I am so sorry baby"! Yep figured he would be the bad guy in this for a moment. HA! Anyways they put 5 stitches in to keep it closed together and he said that the bottom of her tongue had a place that was bitten through. GOSH! I felt even worse thinking she could of chopped her tongue completely off. Well we left the hospital and they gave us some tylenol with codeine in it for pain and trust me I gave it to her! Of course, we tried to make up for the bad we felt and took her to MC Donalds for an ice cream cone and she ate most of it. Well by the next morning she felt a lot better than the night before and everyday has been improvement to which now you can't tell anything happened to her unless she sticks her tongue out at you and then you see the proof!!!!! If this was me I would probably still be crying!

Posted some pics of the evening!

Valentine Party!

Kyler being in preschool this year had a great ice cream filled Valentine's Party. He loved it. All the kids most likely went home as hyper as mine from the sugar highs they had. People think drugs are dangerous, they need to see all 3 of my kids on a sugar high at the same time. Talk about hazardous. HA! A few pics. of the fun day!

Cyber World

Well it is finally time that I joined the fun Cyber world, well at least when I can. I hope I have more time to spend sharing my wonderful kids with everyone and my wacky world that seems to go crazy at times. Hope everyone is great and I love reading everyones post that I can.
