It's a Boy and he is HERE!

Baby Logan James

This is my cousin, Erika and her husbands wonderful bundle of joy! After 14 hours of labor it ended in with a C-Section. He weighed in at 9 pounds and 10 ounces!!! 22 inches long! Sometime last night. I think about 12:30am (or so).

I am so stinking happy for them and so sad for me that I am thousands and thousands of miles away. :( Boo-hoo.

Love you James, Erika, and Logan! Can't wait to get my hands on you! xoxo.

Big Weekend!

On Friday night we had 2 guests spend the night with us. Ben (11) and Audrey (9) spent the night with us for a sleepover. As a parent, I had a great time! I know Carson did too! I want to post more about it soon with pictures, but just wanted to post it right now. We had brinner, watched a movie, went to bed, walked to the post office in the morning and then they headed home. It was our first sleep-in. :) And it was a great one!

On Saturday, my baby Gabers turned 18 months! He is already 1.5 years old! Crazy. He is cracking us up. Tonight I was holding him and patting his back and he had his chubby little hands on my shoulder and back patty me back. He is just so sweet. His big brother is as energetic as ever! He has been doing really good with playing outside and getting some of his energy out. He cracks us up too! He is a character, for sure!

"Children are a gift from the Lord,
they are a reward from Him."
Psalm 127:3

I am praying that I will truly embrace this verse. That I will remember in the harder times and the great times, that my two boys are gifts from my Lord! They are a reward to me! I love them and want them to see my love and the love of the Lord that he has for them.

Aloha. More to come in the next couple of days (hopefully). :) Oh, and happy Autumn!

How old were you?

Last Saturday, the 11th, Carson stayed the night at his friends house. In Medford. Alone. Well, without us I mean.

They did a great job, and got to sleep in a fort in the living room. Carson got home, and wasn't even in the house yet when he asked, "can I spend the night at Lija'hs, Mom?" He had a great time.

That was the 1st sleep over at a friends house. He has slept over at his Gramma's house a handful of times, but that was it until then. I am very proud of him for doing that, not having issues over there, and not waking up in the night. He is a great sleeper!

How old were you when you had your first (or went to your first) non-family sleep over?

8 YEARS (yesterday)

Yesterday Trever and I got married 8 years ago! Man! Time goes so fast, it is just ridiculous. I told Trev that when I was in high school and heard of people being married for more than 5 years it seemed so long to me. Now that I am in it, it seems like just a couple of years. Time is a weird weird thing.

I am so blessed to have Trever as a husband and Carson and Gabe as my sons. I love them all so much and am so thankful that the Lord has blessed me so. He is the glue of this marriage, wouldn't be able to do it without Him.

My little groomsman, and flower girl (my sister) are so little in the above picture. About 4 of them are teenagers now! Here are some more pictures from the big day. Take a look see if you please.


Catch Up

Here are some links to pictures that have taken me a long time to get uploaded.

Here are pictures of my naked babies, my sister's bday, and my MIL's bday.

Here are (promised) pictures from our Seaside trip.

Here are pictures from the Yreka Fair that we went to last month.

Not a whole lot to report.

Been busy with the regular life things. Boys, laundry, food, summer activities...all that jazz.

Trever and I had our 8 year anniversary yesterday. I will post about that ASAP.

I am so amazed that summer is coming to an end. It flew by! Fall weather is in the air. I really like that feeling, but as Saturday was a little dreary, it reminds me of the gray months to come. I am sure I will be busy with my 4 year old and 20 month old (come December) though to keep me somewhat occupied. :) Oh, not to mention all those birthdays that start up strong next month!
