Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a great Thanksgiving yesterday with Ole Papa(grandpa Roger) and Great Momma(Great Grandma VL).  They boys were on their best behavior and I was thankful. 

There is so much to be thankful for and to much to type but as a family we are thankful for our family and friends and staying healthy.  We are so thankful for the school system that Payton is in and how he is progressing with his speech.  We are thankful for Braxton's teachers for taking the extra time that my 3 year old needs and deserves.  We are thankful to spend the holiday with Great Momma this year and for being able to spend it with Ole Papa for the first time.   We could go on and on but just know we are Thankful and are Blessed.

Don't forget to take a moment and be thankful.

A lunch date...

Parents were invited to join their kindergartens for a picnic lunch today at school.  I had the pleasure to have lunch with my handsome Payton.  He knew I was coming but I love to see his facial expression when he sees me for the first time at school.  His whole face lights up and he winks at me.  We sat down and he had a pb&j sandwich with apple sauce and gold fish.  I brought him a bag of his favorite chips and a chocolate milk.  We got the blanket all laid out and two of his friends Aidan and Braeden come to join us.  We had a great time and talked about their mornings.  A student got sick this morning so of course that was the talk of the day.  Aidan and Braeden went on to another blanket and Payton and I got to talk more and be silly. 

The best part was seeing him interact with the other children in his class and to also see how happy he is at school. 

Thank you Payton for being the best lunch date.

Can you see me?

Well over the weekend the boys had the sniffles and then last night I looked into Braxton's eyes and realize that he has pink eye.  So daddy took to him to the doctor and yes he has pinkeye in both eyes.  Well at least it happened today instead of later in the week.

What can you hear me?

Braxton's school referred us to get a more in depth hearing screen because Braxton is very loud.  He seems to talk at a level of his own which is 3 notches above a normal speaking voice. School also states that sometimes he doesn't not seem to hear them when they call his name or ask him to do something.

Well we got a hearing test today and yes Braxton passed with flying colors....SO he is just ignoring his teachers and us at times and is loud just to get attention. 

Oh the joys of Braxton!!!!

Good evening everyone.  Well lets have a quick update before the holidays.  Everyone is excited about the holidays coming up.  There are lots of plans in the works and I just pray that everything goes well. 

Halloween has come and gone and Payton went as a Penguin and Braxton went as a skeleton.  They were so so cute.

The boys then decided to help me with all the leaves.  They helped by jumping and playing in the leaves.
I asked them to smile and this is what I got.  Oh well they had fun. 

Well we are going to type more.  They boys are doing great in school. 


Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
