Yep, I forgot about our blog. Oops. Guess I get to play catch up now.

Shem has been working long hours at work and getting some awesome over time pay. Thanks to taxes earlier this year and the over time pay we will be paying off the truck ahead of schedule. We will be making the last payment this Friday and we will officially own the truck. Next vehicle will probably be an SUV for me so I have room for the kids. I refuse to drive a mini van. The only way I would drive  a mini van is if one was given to me or we needed a bigger vehicle ASAP and couldn't afford an SUV.

I have started a "business" it's not really a business more of a hobby on the side that brings in some extra cash now and then. Most of my items are baby items. I love doing it!

Shawn is going to 5 in July, he has officially been signed up and accepted into American Leadership Academy and he starts school in August. I can't believe he is really old enough to be starting school! He is super excited and can't wait to go.

William is my 3 year old lovable terror. He is very sweet and loves to give loves and kisses and tell you he loves you but in the next breath he is screaming at the top of his longs playing and running around like a mad man. He is a mischievous little boy who knows how to win over any ones heart.

Lukus is 16 months now and he is so different then his older brothers. He idolizes his older brothers but he is calmer and more subdued then they are. He is sweet and will just cuddle with you but he loves to be down chasing his brothers around. He loves to play outside and is very curious about the world around him. He loves to play in the water hose and sprinklers but hates showers.

My family is growing so much so fast and it has been an amazing and fun journey that I can't way to follow for the rest of my life. I couldn't be happier or more blessed with my family!

1 year

On the 18th it will have been one year since we welcomed our sweet little 5lbs 2oz baby into our lives. The year has been full of ups and downs with him and many trials with his digestion but we made it through and he really is a blessing and joy. He is very much attached to mom and dad. I guess we didn't leave him alone enough as a baby because he hates when we leave him and cries almost the whole time but we get lots of loves when we get back. He loves to smile and sing and loves to jabber. He is still only about 16lbs and looks like he is about 7 months old. As I look back on the past year and the trials I realize that they brought me closer to him and made our bond stronger. I love this little boy so much and am so glad that I have been blessed with such a sweet spirit.
