Kinslee Ann Merrill

Kinslee Ann Merrill will be joining our family in March!! We are more then excited to be having a little girl! I have been grossly out numbered far to long! I can't wait to see what she will look like. I remember with both my boys the thing I was most excited about was to see what they would look like. I can't tell you how excited we are to see our sweet Kinslee! I can't wait to see Robbie hold her for the first time and watch him just melt with the sight of his sweet little girl. I know she is going to have him wrapped around her tiny little finger the first time he sees her!! We love you Kinslee, and we can't wait to see your sweet little face!!

Funny bed time memory!

Tonight as I put Jared in bed we were singing out of the children's hymn book just like every other night, but usually his daddy gets to do that part with him. After singing "Adam was a Prophet" Jared said, "Mommy I had a dream that I was with Adam, you know the Adam that was a prophet?" I said, "oh yea, what did you and Adam do?" He said, "we served the lord pie!" With a bit of shock and laughter in my voice, I said, "you did, you and Adam served the Lord pie?" He replied by singing, "Yep like, Adam was a prophet first one that we know, in a place called Eden he helped things to grow. Adam served the Lord pie." I immediately burst into uncontrollable laughter. He was so confused as to why I was laughing so hard. After a couple of minutes I finally composed myself and explained the real words to him. That was one of those priceless moments I will never forget!

My Dream!

I wasn't sure how or if I wanted to post this on here, but I want to always remember this dream, so I figured this was the best way.
Last night I had a dream about my sweet mother. I was walking along and saw her standing there with her back to me. I walked up to her and put my hand on her shoulder and turned her around. She had the most beautiful smile her face. We embraced as she said, "My Kelly." I just kept saying, "Mom, Mom I have missed you so much." We hugged for awhile then I stepped back just enough so I could see her face again. She just stood there and smiled at me with her huge dimples. I grabbed her and hugged her again. I didn't want to let go, because I knew when I did she would be gone again. We sat there talking for awhile and I couldn't look away, because I was afraid if I looked away she would be gone. All of a sudden something took my attention away and when I looked back she was gone. My heart was broken, but so full of joy at the same time. I had seen my mom again and got to her hug her! I woke up and I couldn't fall back asleep. I was so happy. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I've needed that for so long now. I miss my mom so much and I long for a sweet hug from her again. I want to her see her beautiful face and huge dimples again. I believe last night a little part of that was fulfilled for me. I know that may seem silly to some of you, but for me it's all I have. I love you Mommy.

Jared's first day of Pre-K!

My sweet Jared had his first day of Preschool. He was so excited to go to school and start learning. He is so smart and eager to learn. I can't wait to see how much he learns over this school year.

This is Mrs. Staci his teacher!
Payton wanted to be just like his brother! They have so much fun together.

Jared and Jaxon get to go to school together. Best little buds!

Aren't they cute!

Dead to the world!

Each night as I go to bed I go in and kiss the boys goodnight again. Well last night as I went to walk into Paytons room I hit something with a big thud. It was Paytons head! He had gotten out of his crib turned the light on and fallen asleep right in front of the door! We had to push his little body out of the way so we could get in and put him back in bed. He was pretty unaware of what was going on. It was so funny to find my 2 year asleep on the floor with the light on. Got to love little ones!!

Jared turns 4!!

My posts got all mixed up, but here are a few more pictures from the party!

My sweet mother-in-law decorated the table and stairs, so when Jared woke up on his birthday he came down stairs to find this! She is so sweet and kind. Jared love it and felt so special!
