Jameson singing his ABC's

Jameson is learning his ABC's. Sometimes they sound much clearer than others. This is the best we got this morning from him. He is a smart boy and can count to 15 with some help! At 23 months old, I think that's pretty good. We are so proud of him.

10 Years

Matt & I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary on Friday, July 25th. 10 years ago on that very day in 1998 we were both 19 years old and very much in love! I am happy to report that we are still very much in love 10 years later! It has been an exciting road. We have moved around with the Air Force, weathered some storms, learned how to depend and rely on each other. We have begun raising 3 young men, and I feel like we are doing quite a nice job at that!!! 10 years has really flown by, but we have accomplished a lot in that time. We have so much more we want to do together as a family and I can't wait to experience it all with my very best friend! I have added some pictures of us through the years. We have changed some physically, but our love still remains the same.

At the Pool

St. Louis Cardinals

Matt and I went to the game on Sunday after church. It was a really hot day, but our seats were placed nicely in the shade so it wasn't so bad. We had a wonderful time at the game and the Cardinals were victorious so that made it even more exciting. Here are some highlights! Us on the metrolink, Ozzie Smith recieving an award, and pictures of the stadium!

To the Bat Cave

Jameson has been Batman pretty much all week so far. He LOVES the mask and cape! He loves it when Jakob makes the cape look like he's flying. He sure has grown up fast. Enjoy the photos of my Lil' Batman.

Bye Bye Training Wheels

The boys are working hard this summer to ride effortlessly without training wheels. It's going pretty well for Jakob as he has been practicing for a while now. Jaden just started showing some interest. On Sunday, daddy took the training wheels off Jaden's new bike that he got for his birthday. He took off and of course crashed and burned. He tore off all the buttons on his shirt, but came away unharmed! The shirt needs some work though! So we will continue to practice and get these boys to be great bike riders.

Everyday Life

The first picture is the 3 boys getting ready to watch a movie. Even though it is in the heat of the summer they love to be covered up in a cozy blanket. Jameson lasted long enough for me to take the picture and he was gone! The second picture is Jaden and Bailee hanging out in the yard. Bailee has a skin condition that we are treating which is why she looks so pitiful. Poor Girl! We are hoping her hair starts to grow back in and she'll be our happy dog again. She celebrated her 9th birthday on June 30th, 2008.

God Bless America!


Jakob, Jaden, and Jameson checked out the firetruck while we waited for it to get dark enough for fireworks! Jameson was happy until the time came for him to get off.

Verse for the Day

“The Lord your God is with you,

He is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

He will quiet you with his love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.”
