I'm trying to get back in the swing of blogging.
I want to catch you up on our latest happenings around here so I figured the best way to do that is to show you the pictures. Hope you enjoy!
This past Saturday, we celebrated our baby boy's 1st birthday!
Dylan loved being the center of attention!

On Colby and Eli's first birthdays, they were a little hesitant and about the smash cake. Dylan, on the other hand, dug right in!

And he enjoyed every minute of it!
But when the birthday crowd cleared, Dylan had to catch him some z's!
Passed out it Papa's lap!
We got some new pets...donkeys!
They're actually Papa's but they are just staying at our house.

Eli's ride didn't go quite as smooth as Colby's. He got bucked off.
We had a "Snow Day" as seen in the pictures above.
Colby rode on a sled that his Papa built, pulled by his Daddy in his "Hog Huntin' Pickup."

And Colby threw some ice at the camera...AKA his momma!

We went Rabbit Hunting with some friends.
We built a campfire and roasted wienies and marshmallows.
Not a single bunny was remotely injured!
Colby and Braden
Eli "mud-hogged" with his four-wheeler in the mud puddle all day long!
Drinking him some "Pepper."
Eli loves Presley!
Shad and the boys' latest hobby is Hog Hunting. They got a "hog huntin' truck" as seen above and they were looking for some "hog dogs." Shad found some online the night it snowed and they were in Dallas. Of course, Shad was ready to head out in the elements to get him some dogs. I, on the other hand, thought that was pretty ridiculous. He came up with a couple of different plans to get them here and nothing was working out. He had almost given up on those dogs. But on that Sunday, Superbowl Sunday, at church, Colby had a prayer request in Sunday School. He prayed that he would get his "hog dogs" on Monday. Well the Bible says that we "have not because we ask not." That wasn't the case with my firstborn son. He told God exactly what he wanted. At this point, I could have hopped in the car and drove to Dallas and got the dogs. But I figured if it was meant to be, God would answer Colby's prayer. You may have seen my post on facebook asking if anyone was coming this way from the Dallas area. Lo and behold, about 5 minutes later, I had a response from Delicia Eaves saying she was there and would be coming back home the next day. To make a long story short, we got all the details worked out and the very next day, we had two "hog dogs" in our backyard, Lobo and Ella! I believe God cares about the smallest of things, even "hog dogs" for my little man. That day, he got a good understanding of an answered prayer and I hope he remembers it as long as he lives.

He didn't want to stop petting them!
And this is their first successful hunt with his new dogs! He was a very happy boy!
Until next time...

Well...I haven't blogged in a while!
My last post was to announce the birth of our baby boy, Dylan Coye.

I figured it would be fitting for this post to be a
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY know considering today is his birthday and all.

We've watched our baby boy grow from a skinny little babe who couldn't keep much milk down at all to a chunky monkey who will eat anything that is poked in his face. He is one of the most pleasant babies I've ever known. He loves his big brothers and we love him! We are so thankful that God blessed us with him!
Happy Birthday my precious baby boy!

So....after months of thinking we were decided on a name for our new addition, I finally blogged it. That same day, my husband threw me a curveball and changed the name on me! Sorry for all the confusion and please allow me to re-introduce to you....
I go back to the doctor tomorrow and should have a pretty good estimate of when this little man will enter our world. Hope you all have a great week!
And, yes, pictures of the last few months are still to come. I keep waiting on a time when I have nothing else to do. I'm pretty sure that time is not least not for another ten years or so! :) However, they are STILL coming soon!

As of late...

As of late....I have NOT been blogging.

Pretty obvious, eh? I was just reading through my last was HOT Summertime, Colby was bald, and I hadn't even announced that we are gonna have another baby.

SO - without further ado...
And...IT'S A BOY!!!!!
And...he is due ANY DAY!!!!!!
Whew - that's alot of news right?
I am so happy to introduce to you...

So for those of you trying to do the math, Eli and Jacob will be 15-16 months apart.
Definitely a little overwhelming but I know it's all apart of God's plan.
Colby is very excited about getting another brother (after he realized we didn't have to give Eli back). He says we are gonna have TEN babies! Don't tell his Granny...or his DADDY either!
Eli is completely oblivious to the fact that he's about to be the Middle Man. I'm not sure how he will be once the baby actually gets here.
After we found out we were gonna have Baby #3 we decided to close the sign shop in Carthage. It was hard enough trying to take TWO kids to work, not even gonna attempt THREE. So, in October, we moved all of my stuff to an office in Center. I can still make signs and still have some customers in Carthage but I'm not tied down everyday 9-5.
I'm absolutely LOVING being able to stay home with the boys! I didn't realize how much I missed it! I think they are happier too.
I'll catch you up on pictures soon, I promise.
But for now - I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Important Stuff!!!

Kinda MIA on the blog I would say...Seriously, do I have ANYTHING to do other than BLOG. Well maybe just a few minor things....
For the most part, I am down to only working two days a week now and my computer is at my sign shop so my internet access is somewhat limited. On the days that I work, I kinda have to actually, um, work....sometimes. Yeah, I could drive up here on an off day just to blog...or NOT.
I have been super busy on my "off days" with VERY important activities.
Swimming with my boys, eating snowcones of various colors (because that's what Colby orders by...color, not flavor), staying in our pajamas all day, watching Colby get covered from head to toe in mud, holding my precious baby (he's recently becoming a bit of a Momma's boy...yeah, I'm LOVIN IT!), scrapbooking, sliding down a kid's water slide fully clothed (no pictures, lol) you know, IMPORTANT STUFF!!!
Anyways - enough rambling - I'll get straight to the "evidence" of these important things!!!

Sweet Sugars
Big Brother taking care of Eli
Everyone loves to take care of Baby Eli!
I REALLY think Levi is wanting a little brother...or sister...or how about ONE OF EACH!!! That sounds like a perfect idea!
Fireworks on the Sabine River
Eli was mesmerized by the fireworks!
Colby had already gotten a short haircut for the summer but Daddy decided to make it VERY short! He LOVED it!!!
Some random pictures of Eli and Poppy
We had a Sunday School Party/Watermelon Bash at church. Eli rode in this special little car.
And he was worn out!
Yeah you know that mud thing I was talkin' about?!?
Even this pretty little girly girl got dirty!
And again...I think he loves the mud, what do you think?
But what little boy doesn't?
Daddy got a new loader!
So there ya have it - a recap. I'll try not to be so long in posting again. But, you know, I have IMPORTANT THINGS to do! Haha!
Hope you all have a very blessed week!
P.S. Do you know how good God is? If not you should really look him up! I think He's pretty awesome!!!
