I am back to the blog world!!!!!

We have decided to do homeschooling for Kartyr for this year. This is totally not my cup of tea and would never have thought I would be doing this. We are excited to be trying it. I love the idea of having him home with me. We officially started today and I will try to post some pics later.

My kiddos

My big boy!!! Kartyr will be five this month. I can't believe it has already been that long. Kartyr is a great kid. He is in preschool now and loves it. He lloves to play sports and is good at all of them. He loves to fight with his sister but is quick to beg me to give her second chances so that she doesn't get in trouble. For example the other night she got sent to the corner, she was bawling, so he went and stood with her so that she wouldn't cry.
I think he is a pretty cute kid!!!! He is 46 1/2 inches tall and 55lbs.
This is my little princess. Karlye turned 3 in September. She is a very talkative girl. She loves to wear dresses and play with her baby dolls. She gets very frustrated with big brother when he bothers her stuff but is very happy when he gets home from school. She has finally gained a few pounds that last couple of months and is up to 29lbs and is 37 1/4 inches tall.
It is very hard to hold 3 fingers up.
Love her big blue eyes.
I can't get these in the order I wanted.
Larry has lost over 150 lbs since his surgery in December 2010. He feels so much better and looks amazing. The Joplin tornado caused some damage to his work building and the sewer backed up into the building (8 inches). Because of all this Larry was out on unemployment from May-Oct. We were able to do some traveling. Including, Branson, Chicago, and then out to my sisters in California. We had a very busy summer but a good one. I am just busy taking care of the kids and Shaley. Just wanted to catch all my non-facebook friends and family up to date.

Happy Birthday Kartyr!!!!!

I can't believe my baby boy is turning 4!!!!! He is definately all boy. He is full of energy, smart, and loves everybody. He can ride a bike without training wheels and can do hand-stands and cartwheels (fairly well). He likes to play games on the Wii and is better than me at most games. He loves to cuddle and give hugs and kisses.(wonder how long this will last)??? He is big for his age in height and weight so everyone thinks he is 5 and is in school. He really has been wanting to play sports since he turned 2. He has been taking tumbling classes but now that he is turning 4 we may be able to put him in t-ball or soccer.
Here are a few pics since he was 2 days old. Enjoy

Happy 2nd Birthday Karlye!!!!!

This is my beautiful baby girl. I can't believe that she is already 2. She is such a joy. She has her own little stubborn, adorable, talkative, bossy personality. She still has her blue eyes and curly hair. She loves to color, play with her babies, talk on the phone and say her prayers at meal time and bedtime. She says, "Dear Jesus, help me to be good, and to sleep all night thank you Jesus Amen" for both:)
Happy birthday Baby Girl. We love you very much
