Kort and I went to San Antonio with some friends for a 30th Birthday. It was a lot of fun. We went to the River Walk, t the Alamo, and to the Brad Paisley concert. We had a great time relaxing and enjoying friends. The kids went to my sister Heidi's house and had a blast playing with their cousins. We also got to meet our new nephew Lucas! What a happy little doll!
Then we ALL got sick! Yes is comes by 4 in our house. We are all better now!
Just a quick prayer request... Baby Hazel has pneumonia and has been in NC seeing Ashlei. After a long horrible night in the ER she is doing better. Pray she heals quickly and that baby Dawson does not get it. THANKS!!

So I hope all of you had a good weekend. I sure did!!! I went to Canton with a group of friends on Friday and came home Sunday. The break was really needed and lots of fun. We laughed and relaxed and just enjoyed each other's company. SO FUN!!!
While I was away Kort and his Step Dad Gene stayed here with the kids. They had a good time as well. It is always fun for the kids to stay up late have friends over and get doughnuts for breakfast Sat. and Sun. morning!! Talk about sugar rush!!
I guess the kids missed me though because they were so happy to see me. Kade was SO cute he ran to the door saying, " I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU MOMMY!!!" so darn sweet!! Then the rest of the day they both were hanging on one of my legs and the signs of lack of sleep were showing in their whining voices, so WELCOME HOME!! It is always good to get away but good to come home to kids who miss you.
I also am EXCITED to tell you that my sister Ashlei and brother-n-law Brian had a precious baby boy Dawson on Thursday Oct. 2. He is just perfect and healthy. I am so sad I can't be there to kiss his baby toes but I hope to see him soon.
I also wanted to pass on my conversation I had with Kade last night. I am going to do better about keeping up with those silly and sweet things these crazy kids say.
So I was sitting in the rocking chair with Kade getting him ready for sleepy sleep, and just talking and rocking....
Me- "Where's my baby boy?"
Kade- "RIGHT HERE" (while pointing to his chest)
Me-"Right there?....What's your name?"
Kade- "K-K (what I call him)....I 2,....um 11, 13"
Me-"OHH, your 2, 11, 13?"
Me-"Where's your Mommy"
Then he pulled my shirt over my face and said "See, she's lost!"
WE both just laughed and laughed, then he said "I SO SILLY"!
He is so funny and makes me just crack up all the time.
Here are some pictures of Kade on his new "bike" that he will not let anyone even touch one working on his bike and one of a sad boy when sister bothers him. This hiding his face is his new thing when he is crying! OHH BOY!
Have a great week! XOXOXO

Ok, so I have been away from the blog for too long. This summer was just crazy and really I was just LAZY! Now that school has started I can get back to normal....well my normal!
So Averi started first grade and she really loves it. She has a great teacher and I think we are going to have a great year. She has her first soccer game on Sat. and starts dance (hip-hop) on Wed. along with Awana. She will be busy, or I will???
Kade is growing like a weed and so darn sweet. He loves any kind of ball and has a new love for Spider man! He "throws" his web everywhere and jumps off everything! I have really entered into the world of BOYS! I love it and a learning a lot.
Kort is starting a new job in 2 weeks! He is really excited and looking forward to what it will bring to our life and his career. He is also helping coach Averi's soccer team!
As for me....well just same old thing! Taking care of kids, house, husband ya know the usual!
We had a lot of fun this summer at the lake house. I think we were there every other weekend. The kids had a ball and so did we. I am ready for a fun fall and looking forward to the cool weather!! I am going to be better about the blog I promise!! So keep checking back I plan on updating it about once a week!
