Saturday Errand Day

We had a busy Saturday. First, we headed over to the ASU Petting Zoo. The boys loved petting the pigs, goats, chickens, ponies, cows, horses,ducks and bunnies. Landyn even got really!! close to the donkey and looked him in the eye. Guess who got hit up for a bunny? That's right, Daddy! For the rest of Saturday, all we've heard is "Can we please get a bunny?" It is after all, an outside pet.

Then, it was time for haircuts, lunch, Lowe's for plants. After a nap, we then worked in the yard until dark. Still not finished, but it will have to wait until Monday afternoon.

Boys and their toys

Today, since it was such a nice, sunshiney day, Kordyn and Landyn did what any other boy living in the country with a gun: practice shooting boxes and other items found in the shed! Love the earmuffs-wish I'd have had some-it was LOUD!! Kordyn shot his 410 and Landyn shot Kordyn's bb gun.

Birth Verses

On the website:, you can put in your birthday and they will give you a verse: your birth verse. Below are ours:

Jason-Romans 8:15
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the spirit of sonship. And, by him we cry "Abba Father."

Rhonda-Psalm 6:4
Turn, o Lord and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.

Kordyn-1 John 4:9
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only son into the world that we might live through him.

Landyn-Luke 12:7
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid;
you are worth more than many sparrows.

Go look your up!

Friday Favorites

1. Larry's Pizza-If you ever go somewhere that has one, try it. It is really good! I'm trying to talk Jason's parents into opening one up here. Larry is a member of my dad's church in Bryant. Wonderful and different than what you normally get at a pizza place.

2. Books- I love to visit book stores and browse! Kordyn also loves to read; his favorite is books on war. Jason likes for me to read fiction and then tell him the story. Landyn loves to look at pictures and pretend to read. Books are an important part of our lives.

3. Text messaging-LOVE IT!! sometimes you just don't have time for a long conversation, but just need to say something quick.

Short list tonight. Getting ready to watch a movie!

I'm an Aunt!

click on (or look to the right and click on American baby in Macedonia) to see pics of my new niece! She was born yesterday. I did not get to post this yesterday because I had a migraine headache and went to bed. But she is beautiful.

Happy Easter!

We've had a busy weekend. First, Kordyn had a sleepover with his friend, Layne. Then, Saturday, our church had an Easter Egg Hunt. Kordyn has outgrown these fun kid-things, I'm so sad! But, Landyn had a blast until the Easter Bunny showed up and then he was ready to go! The public library was having Brain Awareness Day so I took Kordyn and Layne there. They had a REAL human brain with spinal cord attached. It was gross-they thought it was cool (Jason did too!).

Today, we celebrated Easter at church. Our church has a special Easter offering for missions on Easter Sunday. All of the children are asked to bring 30 pieces of silver to put in the offering. They go to the front of the church as the offering plates are passed for the adults to contribute. Kordyn walked up with Landyn. They looked precious! Landyn was excited to bring his money to give to God. I was worried that he would not want to let it go when he got up there. I'm going to try to get a copy of the picture that they took of them.

Hope all of you have a Happy Easter! We are enjoying this rainy afternoon-just hanging out and having an Italian Feast tonight

We celebrated Kordyn's birthday tonight with the family. He will be 11 on April 9th. Maybe his cousin will be born on that day! (Uncle Jeff & Aunt Amy are ready for Maggie's arrival -they live in Macedonia so it will be awhile before I get to see her.)

Kordyn is now at that age where $$$ is the best present. He also got the great news that on Sunday, he gets to go get the new Nintendo DSI! Another gadget for the boys to argue over.

1. My boys-I can't believe that Kordyn will be 11!!!!! He is growing up too fast. This week, he's decided that he wants to go to Harvard and get a doctorate in history. Landyn on the other hand is becoming a handful! I guess we are going through the terrible 3's. This week, he's "painted" his toes and fingers with a red marker (supposedly washable) because when he is a mommy, he's going to paint his nails!! He also marked all over his bed and in several books.

2. Grandparents- Cracks me up how gullible they are when one of their grandsons look at them with big, begging eyes. Suckers!!!

3. Flowers- Can't wait to buy my new plants for my pots and flower beds. I love driving up to my house and seeing the bright colors and greenery. Just hate watering come hot August!

Have a great weekend!!
