My Family

My husband Kevin and I have been married for 10 years!  I really can't believe it!  We met when I was a Junior in High School and the first things I noticed about Kevin was his heart for the Lord and his heart for people!  He'll go out of his way to help anyone.......and he's prayed and shed many tears for those who choose not to follow the Lord!
God has taken us down quite a road......and through every up and down, Kevin has been faithful to serve the Lord and faithful to love me and the boys!  I thank the Lord for bringing someone into my life who would strive to build our family on "THE rock" of Jesus Christ!

Kevin and I have two WONDERFUL boys who can make us smile and "drive us crazy".....sometimes in the same moment!

Caleb is six and just finished Kindergarten!  I know everyone says it...but time really does go by so fast!
I feel like he was just walking in the doors of the school and now he will be going into first grade in 2 short months!  Caleb enjoyed Kindergarten for the "social" part!  When I would ask how his day was, his reply was usually "I can't tell you"....or "I went to recess"! precious son, you make me smile EVERYDAY!   You LOVE People and are one of the friendliest little boys I've ever met!  I hope you never loose that!   I often get the question "Where did he get his personality?"  I'm not sure what people are trying to say!  HA! (Don't his mom and Dad have a great personality?)..........But I wouldn't change your personality for anything!

One of my favorite memories of you is watching you "preach" at church!  You would gather papers, get a stool, call anyone who would listen, and then just start preaching (just like Papa)!  Most the time we had no idea what you were saying.......we would just hear "Jesus....and God"..... 
Those precious moments will forever stay with me.....

You are asking so many questions about Jesus!  You want to know about Heaven........
My prayer is that one day you will KNOW Jesus....because HE will live inside your heart.

Landon is 3....and we can sure tell!  What happened to my "Gentle Giant"?  You were the quietest little baby and toddler....but you are now finding your voice and personality!!!  I guess you are forced to with a six year old brother!
You are such a BIG little boy!  We always get comments about how big your hands are!  Football maybe?  I'm sure Daddy would love that!
Your smile lights up your whole face and you LOVE to learn!   Story-time.....puzzles......singing your ABC's!  You get so excited to be a part of group or class and you love to sing (especially Deep and Wide)!  When you sing I often try to join you....and you say "No sing Mommy!"

You LOVE "Pizza at Papa's" and won't eat any other kind (except Papa's homemade) when you are there!  (Papa tried giving you Safeway pizza last Wednesday!  Ha!)
You love to give hugs and kisses....but you won't give them at the same time......kiss.....then a hug!  You make your mom smile!
You LOVE your sissy, Grace and Jen.  They take care of you and their home is "your home". 

I love how you and your brother are so different.....
You both have captured my heart........
