January rolled its way around and let me tell ya.. It was overwhelming for all of us. To start things off, Kaden started "school." He goes Monday, Wednesday and Fridays half a day and just loves it. Then, to top things off, he turned 4! I just can't believe my first born is 4 years old. Craziness.. He has made new friends, and is taking up tumbling and karate next to playing with the 5 year olds in one more year of T-ball.. Getting busy already!! ;) If you were a part of my life when I was growing up, you know that chaos was a word my famiy knew VERY well. Let's just say, Charlie has some things to get use to.. This is normal for me! I am posting some pictures of Kaden at school on a few of his holiday fun days for you guys to see.. Gotta love the cowboy genes that run in the family ;)
My attempt to make a Spiderman pinata.. I did an awesome job!! It took the kids a million tries to crack this thing open! GO MOM!!
This is Kaden at Go Western day at school!! He was such a stud! All grow'd up! :(

These are better known as Kaden's boys!! lol. He just loves these guys!This was the Hayden and Harrisons Lewis' home after the hurricane!! Crazy!!!
This is Hayden helping his dad, Charlie, Scott and Carlos clean up. Talk about a team effort!!
Anyway. My other cousin Erin, her daughter Kaitlyn, and Kaitlyn's daddy Kenny all decided to stay here because they had to evacuate from the Clear Lake area. Though it was trying at times, I am so thankful that we were able to protect them under better circumstances than most people can say. We love you guys! Here is a picture of the kids at Lowe's on Friday before the storm. That was fun!! ;)Okay, I am officially tired! I will write more on this story soon!!
xoxo to all who read!

What a joy he is in my life!!Then there is my baby girl.. Karlie Ryan. This chic has a 'tude.. I wonder where she gets it from?! lol. Charlie and I have gotten a feel for what life would be like with her if we decide to thave more kids.. And there is only one word to describe it right now and that is, CRAZY!! Karlie is a jealous kiddo. She loves pup pup, but hates when her mama holds him.This picture was taken after she realized mommy was holding something and it wasn't her.. I love this babygirl!
She was ready to go home and ready to go to bed. Can you tell by those eyes??
Okay so to put the icing on the cake, and I mean literally.. I made my very first Double Layer German Chocolate Cake for my father in laws birthday yesterday, and it actually turned out pretty well! Take a look for your self. Let me know what you think!
With all that said and done, I have one last thing to fill ya'll in on. As most of you know, we have put our house on the market, and it's been up for sale now for a little more than 2 months. Well, yesterday while I was making my cake, I had a showing at the house. And ya'll know what? I couldn't have asked for a better lady to want my home. (no she hasn't put down a bid, but it looks probable that she will!) She was awesome! If you read my sisters blog, you will know that faith is a big part in our lives. And I gotta tell ya.. I was starting to run out. Just when I thought all was gone, this lady and her grandson show up. Weird? Yes it was! We shall see.. Anyway, I do have more pictures to post but I have to do it on another day..
Hugs and Kisses to you all!!

We haven't really done too much this past week. I started to work a bit more in the YMCA and I am lovin it! The people I work with are awesome.. Charlie is doing well at work. For those of you who don't know what he does here's a little bit of information for ya. He works for a Metal company in Houston call Reliance Steel and Aluminum. It's exactly the way you read it. That's what he sells. He is an inside salesman who actually loves his line of work at the moment. SURPRISING?!? Yeah, it is.. Even for me! lol!! The kids are growing so fast too!! I look at my little brother and I see how fast he grew and I just know that before I realize it my little ones will be gone to college and starting their own families. Geez, I most definatly dread the empty nest syndrome days.. Speaking of my kids....
We finally have decided that we are going to take a chance and put our first home of almost 5 years on the market. :( We are sad and scared, but we know that it's that time! We are looking in a couple of different areas, but one thing's for sure.. We are staying in the Cy-Fair ISD area. We just love it out here. The main reason for us wanting to move is to upgrade in size. We have decided that we aren't done having children. (I know, I know.. crazy) But we just don't feel like we are done. This was a great house for a newly married couple and 2 children.. That's about it, and now it's time for another family to enjoy it!

Over the last few months we have been able to make quite a few trips to my parents house. They are known to my kids as MeMaw and PePaw! My brother is Uncle B or Bobo, and my sister and her husband are "Tyla" and "Wallett" for now. Eventually they will be better known as Aunt Kyla and Uncle Wyatt. As you can tell, these Aunt and Uncles are pretty proud of their niece and nephew!
As for the husband and me.. Well we are still trying to decide if the time is right for us to move from our first home to a bigger home and continue to expand our family. We just believe that there is something bigger and better out there for us. We just have to trust that God will someday show us where and what that is. Here are some pictures of my precious family!
Karlie and her mommy just love playing peek-a-boo!
He most definatley loves his Aunt Kyla and Uncle Wallett!! lol.. The main reason for going to my parents house in May wasn't my birthday.. although that has been a highlight.. It's for my brother Brandon's graduation and going on to the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. That's right! He's going to college, and let me tell ya, I couldn't be more proud. He will be fighting for a starting position on the Crusador baseball team! Go B!!!Me and my sweet precious family at the Epicenter in Burnet, Texas!! Aren't we cute???Well, there isn't enough time for me to put the whole nine yards in here, but just know that I will be posting when I can. Let me know how this turns out for you guys to read!
