Marine Corps Museum

We took the kids to the Marine Corps Museum last weekend. They had fun going through some of the obstacles they had setup. This is a GREAT museum if you are in the DC area.

Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to wish all my friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for your constant support, encouragement, and love through these crazy years of being the mommy of 3 under the age of 5!

Here's an update:
Ian is doing great in Pre-K. Just tonight at dinner he corrected Joe on something he said and Joe asked him if he was going to be one of those know it all kids. Ian replied yes:) He loves to draw, color, and his own timing though, not when the teacher asks him to. He is a loving big brother with an occasional hit to remind them who is in charge! He and Evan have matching bruises on their faces where they collided the other day!

Abbie Grace is still our drama queen. I never knew the tears could come on so quickly but they do many many many times a day. She is especially sensitive to Joe and hates to disappoint him. She continues to mother the other kids in her class at daycare! Potty training is still underway....unfortunately. For a control freak like me this is really hard to know she will get it in her timing because I won't this stage OVER with!

Evan is our little sick boy. He currently has pneumonia and a double ear infection. The poor little guy has been sick since he was born it seems. This along with getting his molars and eye teeth could put us all over the edge!! Thank the Lord for Motrin to relieve some of the discomfort though. He is walking around some but would still rather crawl but we think by Christmas he will be a pro. That will make him our earliest walking at 13 months. Here comes trouble! He's already mastered the stairs unless he seems me...he just lunges forward and expects me to catch him.

Beautiful Abbie Grace

Abbie Grace is our entertainer. She loves to dress up and act. My niece Jessica was here this past week and taught her to say "I'm a rock star, baby!". Here's our little rock star all dressed up.

Evan's First Birthday Party

We had Evan's first birthday party this past weekend. Joe is going to be out of town for his actual birthday so we had to have it a little early...he wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake at first but soon figured it out!

Marine Corp 10K

I ran in the Marine Corp 10K this past weekend. It was a lot of fun. There were 30,000 runners total...25,000 marathon runners and 5,000 10K runners. It was tons of fun but I hope to run it with some girlfriends next year as it was a little lonely at times!! This was by far the most emotional race I had ever run as many runners wore shirts in memory of soldiers who had lost their lives and there were even some soldiers out running with prosthetics....quite humbling. I was able to use the time to pray for those soldiers, their families, and our soldiers who are currently fighting for us.

Evan - 11 Months Old!!!

Only one more month until our baby turns's just so sad. Where has the time gone? Evan is close to walking. He loves to dance every time he stands up though so he always falls over! I'll have to try and get his dancing on video for yall to see. It is very funny. At night when we sing our dinner prayer he bobs up and down like its some kind of techno song:) What a funny boy!

Fall Fun

Sorry it's been so long since we have's been busy busy busy!

Ian is now in soccer so we have a game and practice a week. He and Abbie Grace are also in Awana's one night a week. Awana's is like a Christian scouts program where they memorize bible verses, play games, etc and earn patches for certain milestones. Ian's memory is amazing with these verses! It's helping me to memorize scripture too! Evan had tubes put in his ears last Friday and is doing great! He came out of the surgery like a champ and is already gaining balance and could be walking soon:( Here are some pics of our latest fall activites...Cox farm, soccer, potty training, etc. Hope you are all great!

Poor Sick Evan

We have a sick house right now. Abbie Grace and Evan both have double ear infections, Evan has bronchitis, and Ian and Abbie Grace both have stomach flus. FUN FUN! Here's a picture of Evan getting his breathing treatment. His mask is a little fishy:)

My Mom, Grammy, came to visit last week and we had pictures taken...Abbie Grace is like her daddy and does not like portrait studios!
