Please Pray

This weekend a friend of mine passed away; Randy Titus. We've been friends since Jr. High, we were in eachothers weddings. Randy leaves behind two younge boys; Caleb and Cole - they are Brock and Dane's age. It breaks my heart. Please please keep his family in your prayers through this difficult time. There is so much I'd like to write, but right now I just can't.

Caed's Dedication

On Sunday, we had Caed dedicated. This afternoon while I was at the school picking Brock up, one of the mom's asked me what that meant. I have to admit, I was excited to share. Being a parent can be overwhelming. They are completely dependant on you. Not only for their physical needs, but their emotional, mental and spiritual needs. Life can get crazy, especially with four little ones to bathe, dress, feed, entertain, teach.... the list goes on and on:) But nothing is as overwhelming as the huge sense of importance I feel for their spiritual needs. Bobby and I pray with and over our kids everyday. I pray God will give me wisdom and patience. I pray he will surround them with angels for protection as well as around our home. I pray for their friends, the ones they have now, and the ones they will make that will have huge impacts in their lives. I pray for their future spouses - that they are being raised in Godly homes with healthy examples of good marriages. I pray God will help me be the mommy that they need so they can be the men and woman that God desires them to be. It's overwhelming, and so important. With dedicating Caed, we are making a public commitment before family, friends and our church to raise Caed in a way that honors the Lord. To do all we can to guild him and teach him and pray that he makes and eternal decision to serve and follow God by asking Him into his heart. On Sunday, our pastor asked us to share a verse that we chose for Caed. It was the same that we shared when we dedicated Briley. Matthew 5:16. It's about letting your light shine. I pray that my kids, all of them are lights to their generation for Christ. That God uses them in mighty and powerful ways. And I pray God gives me wisdom to help them along the way.

Here you go Mom:)

So my weirld little lady - who yes still sticks things up her nose (pulled out a huge pice of paper this morning - it had been in there since atleast yesterday), has started a new thing!@##$@#$ The other day when I went to get her out of her bed from her nap, she smiled and said "Here you go Mom", as she handed me a dirty diaper in one hand and a nice piece of poop in the other. She has started taking off her diaper during naps!!!!! I think it's time to really potty train!

Rice Cereal

Last week while I was at the store, I bought a new box of rice cereal so Caed could start eating it this weekend. While I was nursing Caed, I heard a funny sound in the pantry. This is what I saw when I opened the door...

Thank you Briley for that fun mess!#$#@$ Now I'm off to the store to buy another box so we can try this.

Happy 1/2 year Birthday Caed

I can't believe Caed is 6 months old today. It seems like just last month I was pregnant. But, if you looked at him you'd probably think he was 8 or 9 months old. The boy is a moose:) He's 6 months today, and he is wearing the same size diaper that his 2 year old sister is in?!?!? And, now that he's 6 months he gets to start eating - rice cereal tomorrow:) I can't imagine what's going to happen to his rolls when he's not just nursing?!?!?

Just one of MANY

Bobby and I started a Word document on our laptop of some of the many funny things our kids say. They are always cracking us up, and we realized that we forget them. So we've started a list - it's just too funny. I think when I have a few extra seconds I'll share some with you. Here's my most recent entry:)
On Friday night, we were out to dinner with the kids at Roscoe's and Dane had to go potty. There were two stalls, but the larger one was already being used, so Dane and I squeezed into the small one together. When I sat down to go, he quickly asked, "Mom, why do you pee out of your butt?" I heard the lady in the stall next to us try to hold back her laughter - but she was only able to do that for a few seconds.... it wasn't long before the laughter was echoing off the tiled walls:) I'm sure she had a fun story to share when she got back to her table:)

Just a FEW of the many LOVING marks my kids have put on my home@##$%@#


I think Bri is going to have to have ANOTHER bath today!^&$#

Pirate's Dinner Adventure

Saturday was Pops' birthday - we decided to go to the Pirate's Dinner Adventure next to Disneyland. The kids had a blast and their cousin Noah was there too - so that made it extra fun. However, the acting and food left a lot to be desired. The acrobatics was great though:) And, thanks to Mike, Bobby's brother, his Dad even got to be a part of the show:)
During the show, Dane kept needing to go to the bathroom. After the third time I was wondering what the heck was going on. I was sitting at one end of the table with the baby and Bobby was at the other end with the rest of the kids. Apparently they only had soda and water to drink, so Bobby got them all Sprite. I NEVER let the kids have soda so this was quite the treat. Dane LOVED the "yummy drink that looks like water". Bobby thought it was so funny how much he loved it that he kept refilling his cup. I think the final count was 5 cups!!!!! This would have NEVER happened if Mommy was sitting close by. It's a mirical he wasn't bouncing off the walls.
