Update! Finally!!!

It's been a long time since I blogged! I have been a slacker---BIG time! I guess when we all got sick and John went to Canada, I got out of my routine and have not gotten back into the swing of things! But maybe everything will get back to normal soon.

I have enjoyed the Christmas blogs with the festive music, although I can't say I am quite ready for Christmas myself. I love the season, I just can't get into the "spirit" just yet! I changed my blog background so maybe that will be some motivation! I have got absolutely no Christmas shopping done. I thought I did one day, but instead of waiting for Christmas, I have been wearing my gifts and I let John Luke wear his!!! I am terrible about that!

These are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks...

Praise the Lord this man is home!!! I missed him soooooo much and so did his little man! Since his return this is what John Luke does EVERY time he starts to go anywhere. Even if it's just to the other room!!

We made a quick trip to Troy one day and stopped by to see the aunties. Unfortunately Aunt Amy was in class, but we got to see Aunt Kimberly for a short visit.

I thought this was too funny! A sign Kimberly made and hung on her wall to remind her to "not get fat"!!!!!!! If only it were that easy!!!

This has been our favorite toy lately...yes the "bubble car" inside because "it's just too darn cold outside for women and children" as John says. Especially after having a virus, and then an ear infection, and then a fever for several days, and now a cough and stuffy nose!!! We have been locked up inside for years it seems like! {Notice how he has his leg kicked over the side...he got that straight from his granny and nan!}

I walked in the room one day and found this. I thought it was so cute!

If we do go outside, this is our attire.

And finally, I have been meaning to put this on here. John Luke's first kiss!

One day earlier this week, John called and left a message on the answering machine. John Luke has learned how to play the message and plays it over and over and over. He stands over the phone and says, "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" Then he'll pick up the phone and say "Daddy"? I think he is as ready for his daddy to come home as his daddy is to come home! {And me too!}

Milk...It Does a Body Good

And this baby eating and drinking does his mama good! He has been sick for almost a week now! Thank the Lord he is feeling better!

Since it was warmer today, we went for a ride on the Ranger, and believe me this little boy was READY to go! He has been stuck inside for much too long! {I know he may be a little over-dressed but I wasn't taking any chances!}

Our Recent Family Photo Session {Ha, Ha}!

I have been wanting to get a family picture made for a long time. I am ashamed to say that we have never had our picture made together since John Luke was born until the other day when we did church directory pictures. So I got this brilliant {or not so brilliant} idea to take them down at Open Pond. I thought since the leaves were changing it would be so pretty {and it was} but I guess there was just too much distraction for a little curious 18 month old boy! He did good as long as he wasn't having to stop and "pose" so therefore the family pictures didn't turn out so hot! We did get several sweet ones of him by himself so that made it worth the time. He ofcourse had sores on his nose from having a runny nose for the past, oh I'd say 18 months, and he had scratched himself around his mouth so that's what you will see in the pictures. Typical I guess. That's how it always seems to work! Oh well!! He's still precious!

I have to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Dawn for braving this task! Sorry Dawn!!!

I have been out of touch with everyone and everything for WAY TOO long! Quite honestly, I love my computer and I love blogging~ I told Dawn I think I probably need re-hab for my addiction!!! I have still not got it all hooked back up, but while I'm at Mother's I've decided to make good use of my time---on her computer! I have lots of catching up to do!

I will start with these precious pictures of Miss Emmie. I had a great time visiting with Michelle and holding her sweet, tiny bundle of joy! Maybe one day they can move back "home"!

We Are Still Here...

Hello Everyone!!! I have been missing you all, GREATLY!!! My computer is torn up---AGAIN!!! Hopefully I will have it back soon! I have been completely out of touch with the world and am missing my blog tremendously! I did not realize just how much I depended on this thing to keep up with the outside world!
Looks like everyone is doing great~ I hope none of you have had this TERRIBLE virus that we all have had! I have never been so sick in my life! And my poor sweet husband has got it and is traveling to CANADA!!! Please pray for him to recover quickly! I cannot imagine being that sick on an airplane!

Hope to be back VERY soon~
