I am a child of the King, wife to the best husband in the world, mom of four wonderful children and one great daughter-in-law, Nana to the three cutest little boys. We have a wonderful life. Who ever would have thought that I could have all of this.
Along with having a new baby in the family, we also have quite a few new baby chicks. These little fellows were hatched just a day or two after Miss LilyAnn was born. And it's a very good thing Jamie and Kacee have a large living area since for now this is where those sweet little chickies are living. Our land is becoming quite the family farm and the boys are absolutely loving it. I think they were born to be little country kids with lots of animals, a large garden to grow wonderful vegetables and lots of dirt to play in.
It's baby week and we are all so excited. We will be welcoming our first granddaughter to our family. We have three wonderful little boys whom we adore and I know we will adore Miss LilyAnn just as much. Can wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Every winter for the last three or four years, we have tried to take to the boys to a motel that has indoor swimming. We used to do this for our kids when they were little because they thought it was special to be able to swim in the winter time. Last year I found a motel in Tulsa that has an indoor water park. We decided we would go again this year only we went a month early because of Miss LilyAnn's arrival in February. That's about all we did was let them swim and eat. But we gathered lots of fun times together and lots of memories.
Monday was a beautiful day as well as this entire weekend. It felt like spring even though it is the middle of January. I was almost expecting Walmart to have their spring flowers out in the garden center. The boys (and pretty soon I am not going to be able to say that in referring to the grandkids as there will be a little girl to add to the mix) spent the night and then we played outside all day. It was wonderful after being cooped up for weeks because of the cold weather. I had gotten most of the leaves raked away from their fort and mud kitchen, straightened up the patio just so we could play. And play they did! We started out the day as usual............watching some Scooby Doo or Octonauts.
Then is was outside to the fort. Don't think Isaiah was too sure about going down the slide.
They were excited to get to play with their mud kitchen again.
I know I should have posted this back during the Christmas season but it was so incredibly busy I guess I just forgot and since this is MY journal about My family I am going to post it now. Not too late, Right? One of the reasons we were so busy was because we were trying to find a chance to get Jessica moved into her new home. I never thought we would have so much trouble just finding the time to do but we finally did. In her kitchen is a nice big island just right for making Christmas cookies and she kindly let us make them there. My island is small and has my stove top in it so doesn't give a lot of room to make cookies. She invited some friends over with their daughter to join the boys in making of our annual Christmas cookies.
