I can't believe he jumped off the roof.

I just can't believe that he was brave enough to jump off of our roof. He is one tough little guy. I'm sure glad that he trusted me to catch him. He kept asking me, "Dad you promise promise that you will catch me". "I promise", I kept telling him. Finally he jumped. Maybe we should all take a lesson from Staley and quit being chickens. I'm not saying jump off of your roof but get out of your comfort zone a little bit. Do something that you don't see yourself doing. Commit to it. Staley was determined to jump off that roof before he got up there. We had to give him a little pep talk but he stuck to it and finished what he said he would do. Staley you are so dang awesome. I am so proud of you. Of course not for just jumping off our roof but for who you are. You have become such great help to me and your Mom. I hope you realize just how much that helps us out. You take care of your younger siblings so well. I don't know what I would do without you. I Love you bud. 

Love Daddy

Remember when Chicken & a Rooster

My cute little sister Coley, printed a book of her blog a little while ago, and let me just tell you how much I love it!! I SO love it. So, because this is my "journal" I really wanted to incorporate the old with the new- hence my title Remember When... I want to start sharing so many of my memories before my blogging adventure started. So I will start picking random pictures and videos to share... so we will always remember them  when I finally print out my book!:)

So the adventure starts now. :)

Remember When....

October 2007- Halloween

Ok, I have to admit, this was the funniest Halloween ever. So, me, trying to be super thrifty- thought it would be the perfect idea to take the kids to Kid To Kid and let them pick out their own costumes...BAD idea. Staley found this horrific rooster costume which he completely fell in love with the minute he saw it! I was at the point in my life where I was really trying not to make all the decisions for my boys, but really value their opinion- Needless to say, this is how it turned out! :)

Funny thing is...last year we had our first ever yard sale...Staley wore this costume all day, and it was a hot the end of the sale a girl was driving by, saw Staley and asked if he would sale his rooster costume...with much negotiation- he sold it for 5 bucks.  I have to tell you I don't miss it so much!

Oh how I love my boys!!

Cute family

Go on.. tell me I have the cutest kids ever... go on, just tell me. :) I LOVE my babies. I am grateful for every single one of them. I love how they are so different, but yet so similar. I am so, so lucky!!
