Monday, March 5, 2007


I know that I have been slacking that past few weeks on posting....but our house has been pretty busy.
The kids are over their sickness and are doing great. CJ is really starting to take over the talking business....he pretty much repeats what we say! This weekend he started saying Puzzle, Stella(Our Friends Dog) and Jacob(his cousin, who he thinks is the coolest). Avery is just being the little miss priss as always.
Christopher has started playing the drums for M28 again. So we will miss him on the 4th Monday of the month and the 4th Wednesday. He has been crazy busy at work too, He was promoted from the Regional Sales Manager to the National Accounts Manager. It is pretty dang cool!
I have been TRYING to get our house organized. I have started cleaning everything out and trying to put it in its place. This is a pretty hard task when I pull EVERYTHING out and then the little boogers wake up. So our house is pretty much a mess....hopefully I can finish this weekend before Tiffanys Bacheloretty Party! I have also been working on my little business, and I have decided that with the hairbows i also want to sell little girls pillowcase dresses. Hopefully in the next two weeks or so we will finally have the website up and running. Also if you see cute pillowcases if you could please pick them up for me and I will pay you back.

To My Bride

This may be a bit of a surprise but it is time that I got in here and said something about my beautiful Bride (she is the one in the middle).

First, I want to commend Eileen on her servant's heart. She does a wonderful job serving me, the kids, and the house. She has three full-time jobs (being wife, a mom, and a homemaker) and she excels at every one of them.

As a wife, Eileen cares for my needs, listens to my dumb stories (and acts interested too), she supports me in the decisions I make, and she is diligent in her pursuit of her relationship with the Lord.

As a mom, Eileen is consistent in her instruction and guidance of the kids, she regularly seeks out my council on issues with the kids, she loves Avery and CJ, no matter what the circumstance and she is a model to Avery and CJ of what a wife and mom are supposed to look like.

As a homemaker, Eileen is already a busy woman. She somehow finds time to keep the house clean. She regularly has dinner waiting for me when I get home (and it is good food if you couldn't tell by looking at me). She is diligent with looking out for the little things that I like and even the things that I dislike.

Eileen is a true servant and she makes sacrifices everyday, sacrifices I can not begin to repay her for but I know she is regularly storing up treasures in heaven...which are far better than the "treasure" I buy her.

So, to my love: Eileen, I love you and I can not express the respect and appreciation I have for you and all you do for me, the kids, and the house.

Yours forever,
CJ sr.
