Sorry it has been awhile!

So I know it has been awhile! Things have been crazy. So here is an update from the last couple months! Enjoy!

Bryce: So Big So Fast!!

I know I haven't posted recent pictures of Bryce, so here they are! He is pulling himself up and can stand on his own for a little bit without holding onto anything. He says mama and dada! He is just the cutest red head little boy!
He loves his sister so much! She was asleep and bryce was playing in the living room! Then he decided he wanted to play with his sister and I found him in her room at the end of her bed, standing there waiting for her to wake up! It was adorable!
These are Bryce's friends: Shiloh and Caiden
He loves the water! Bath or Pool!

It was Sunday after church and Morgan was sleeping. I was on the floor and Bryce was crawling around and on me. I fell asleep and soon after, so did he, right on top of me!
I love his smile!

What a Mess!

My friend was over with her little boy Joey, who Morgan loves to play with. We were talking and I noticed it was a little to quiet for my liking with them. We went in to her room and found this wonderful mess! They had gotten into out game box that I had in her closet. I think it was a total of 5 board games with lots of pieces everywhere. I just had to laugh! Needless to say we have a childproof thing on the doorknob now! Oh the things children will do!!

My Baby is 3!!!

These pictures were taken in the tree in our front yard! She loves the camera!!
This is on Sunday June 28th! Her Birthday!
She was so excited to go to nursery and share her cupcakes!
We were going to the doctor for her 3 year well check! She had all she needed in her purse:
a (clean) pair of panies
a 3/4 deflated balloon
She was ready to go and was such a big girl!
weight: 24lbs
all in the less then 5%

Her Birthday Party!

It was so nice to have a party that we could invite her friends and not just our friends! A birthday party is not a party without a pinata and candy!!

YUMMY!!! chocolate cupcakes!

My New Ride

For the past two weeks I was looking ot buy a van! We were just running out of room in our little 2002 Honda Civic. So I went and test drove 2, but it just didn't feel right. So Last week I went o a dealership up the road to see what they had in used vans! They didn't have anything in my price range. He asked me what I thought of SUV's. I like them but I just thought I should get a van. Well, as you see it is not a van! I just fell in love with it and it was in my price range. It is a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor. I have to brag and say that I am very proud of myself in getting this car. I did a lot of research and I stuck to my guns when it came to dealing with the saleperson. He had to go to his manager 3 times to get to where I needed in the payments. At first he was only going to give me $5500 for my trade in. At the end he gave me $8000 for my trade in and most of that they will give me a check to pay off ben's car. That was the only way we could get another car, is to pay off Ben's. I love my car. I have a lot more room and it has a CD player!!!! Yes my other car did not. Morgan always asks if we are going to go in the "BIG" car! Isn't it so pretty????

I hate potty training!!! Morgan is doing really well with peeing in the potty. She wears big girl panies all the time. She just won't poop in the potty!! We have tried giving here candy as a reward, taking books, movies and toys away. We have tried making her sit on the potty for a long time. I just don't know what else to do!!! I am getting very frustrated! Any ideas???? PLEASE!!!

Morgan's Dinner Prayer

Tonight when dinner was ready I said that we needed to say prayer and Morgan said that she wanted to say it. This is her prayer:

"Dear Heavenly Father. How does it go? Thank you for this day. Please bless this food. Please bless Daddy that he is safe. Please bless Mommy that she got me a surprise at the store. Bless Bryce, he is rolling over! bless we will have good dreams. say these things, in the christ, Amen."

It took all I had from laughing. They are so cute and innocent. She is growing up so fast. I can't believe that she is going to be 3 at the end of the month. She is such a good kid and a great big sister.

The other day she said the cutest thing.

Morgan: "Where's Daddy?"
Me: "He is at work"
Morgan: "Why?"
Me: "He has to make money so that mommy can stay home with you and bryce."
Morgan: "He is making monies so you can stay home with me and bryce?"
Me: "Yes."
Morgan: "I LOVE YOU GUYS SOOO MUCH!" (and gives me the biggest hug!)

She cracks me up everyday!!

Young Love!!

This is Morgan and Joey! So cute walking hand in hand! They held hands and just talked to eachother. It was the cutest thing. My friend and I were laughing so hard, because it was so cute. They held hands until Joey ran Morgan into a suitcase, after that she didn't want to hold his hand. The little things that just melt your heart!

Morgan cracks me up everyday!

One day last week I told Morgan to go pick up her toys in her room before she got a snack. Well, she just had a fit. She threw herself on the floor and started crying. I just ignored her and kept doing what I was doing. As I walked by her, she said to me:

" This is so wrong!!"

I said "What is so wrong?"

She said "Me crying"

It took all I had not to laugh right then and there. She makes me laugh everyday and she is a GREAT big sister and helper to mommy and daddy!!

Together as a family again!!

At the beginning of March we found a house to rent in Arizona! At the beginning of April the kids and I left PA and went to be with Ben. It is very nice to be together as a family again. It was very bitter-sweet to leave PA. I enjoyed living with my mom and dad and being able to see by brothers and sister and inlaws all the time. I am glad that Morgan was able to spend a lot of time with her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. I am also very glad that I was able to share my pregnancy and birth of Bryce with the family. I miss you all so much and can't say thank you enough to all of you for all your love and suppport during this past year. Please give all the kids hugs and kisses from all of us!! Below is a picture of our house. I will send more of the inside when I have it decorated.

Our cute little house!!

Bryce is getting so big, so fast!!
