Averys Sick Day!

Last Friday poor little Avery had a rough day. From Wednesday night to Friday evening Avery slept about 5 hours total. She was pretty lethargic all day, and just overall she felt awful! She stayed in the chair in the living room pretty much all day, and took the occasional cat nap.

Valentines Day!

On Valentines Day morning, I took the kids to Chick-fil-a for heart shaped biscuits. We met up with several other friends(mine and theirs). We had a great time and hope to make it a yearly tradition! Then for lunch we took Daddy out to Panera! The kids had a great time hanging out with Daddy midday, and I enjoyed seeing my hunk!

CJ Getting tickled by Olivia and Avery at the bottom of the slide!

The kids discovered that the highchairs at chick-fil-a hard rollers on them and that it was better to swing your legs to roll around the room that to sit with the adults!
Lunchin' it up with Daddy!


On Valentines Day Evening we were scheduled to have a couples care group meeting, so we decided that we would still get together, but we would have dinner together. We had a roast and potatoes for the boys and then we had chocolate fondue for dessert! We had a great time, our couples group is hilarious(some of our bestest buds, Dena and Steve are in our group, so I gotta throw them a splash out!) We all took time to honor our spouses so of course the girls cried, but we really did have a great time! Christopher gave me a beautiful pot of tulips(my favorite spring time flower!!) and a really awesome card. What a great hubby I have!

POX Watch 2k7

Well, well, well. So Cj does not have the Chicken Pox! He woke up Tuesday morning with no sign of the "pox", and this morning he is free and clear of them. We are thinking that his rash was a result of being at the doctor for three hours with a wet diaper on, and being SHOVED into the X-Ray machine! So we will just chalk it up to sensitive skin. So we are out of quarantine, and on the move.

Seeing Spots!

Since last Wednesday Avery has been struggling with a NASTY cough. So on Friday I took her to the doctor, and while we were there we had to get a chest X-Ray to make sure she didn't have pnemonia. He said that she probably just had early pnemonia or RSV. Well low and behold yesterday CJ woke up from his nap with a nasty cough. So off we went to the doctors today. Cj got his turn getting his X-Ray, and we went back to the doctor. When we were about to leave I showed the doctor the nasty rash that I noticed about 10 minutes earlier when I was changing Cjs diaper. So our final diagnosis is: both kiddos with broncilitis, both kids have ear infections, and the boy has CHICKEN POX......we will keep you posted on the Saga of the Red Dots as it moves through our house!

Happy Birthday Alathea!

Saturday was Avery and CJs best buds First Birthday. Alathea had the cutest little princess and frog birthday party! Jeanie(Alatheas Mom) made all the little girl princess crowns and the little boy frog hats, the kids looked so cute in them. It was pretty funny while Alathea was opening her presents Avery decided that she liked the new purse and sunglasses Alathea got and put them on and showed Alathea how to be a girly girl like her!

Just like Daddy!

On Friday night the M28(the college ministry at our church) had a coffee house, and they asked Christopher to play for it. So we loaded up the whole gang and went to hang out for the evening. While they were practicing Christopher gave CJ his first drum lesson! He loved it! We practically had to pry him off of the drums, and the whole time they were playing he kept trying to crawl onto the stage and touch the drum!s! I think we know what a certain little boy with be getting for his birthday this year!

Avery Girl!

Since CJ seems to be getting all the attention around here I thought I would post a picture of Avery doing what she does best: Look Cute and Eat!

The Q-Tip Inspector

On Monday morning while trying to get ready to go to a playdate, CJ discovered my stash of Q-Tips and hair clips! Normally when he is in the bathroom he like to put things in the toilet or unroll the toilet paper, but this morning he decided he needed to inspect Q-Tips! He has such an engineer mind, he inspects everthing!

Vegas Baby!

Yesterday Christopher left to go to Vegas for work. Apparently this is a pretty important Car Dealer Convention, where they drum up quite a bit of business. The owner of the company, the National Sales manager, and Christopher and one other sales guy went. I think that it is a pretty big honor that they ask him to go!

It truely amazes me how God had the perfect plan for Christophers career all along. One thing that I love about Christopher is his enthusiams for new things, but occasionally like many of us it ends quickly! This has been very true with Christophers jobs, he never really found his niche, or something that he enjoyed. Last spring Christopher started working for ALN. From day one Christopher has loved this job. No matter how hectic it gets(which is everyday!!) he never really complains. He enjoys going to work, and really appreciate what a blessing it is. The most amazing thing is Gods wonderful grace that he has had with Christopher and this job. Christopher has never had a real sales job, and he is only 26 but he consistenly is given big clients, clients that other salesmen,who have been working in sales longer that he has been born, can't seem to close, and given complements on his ability to grasp this business in less than a year. I truely cannot say enough about the men that Christopher works with, he has grown so much as a husband, a leader and a father from the guidence he has recieved from them. Seriously where else can you work and have weekley prayer meetings, and accountability!(well other than a church :)

With this all said, I just wanted to take a minute to honor my husband who I love more and more each day! To really honor the wonderful man, husband, servant, father and son that he is!

Toby too!

I forgot the pictures of poor neglected Toby being a snow dog! He was pretty upset that we had to come in too!


It snowed for the first time today in THREE years!! So I bundled the kids up and took them outside! They loved it! They actually cried when we had to come back inside.
