Dryer anyone?

Okay, just thought that I would post this and see. I have a dryer I am trying to sell, it is in really good condition and is white. It is a natural gas one. If anyone who lives in my town wants to buy it or knows someone who needs one, maybe I could sell this and free up some space. Okay, get back to me if anyone is interested. Thanks! Oh yeah, I was hoping for $75.

Mom's place!


So here is a little glimps into my mom's knew home. I love being there and I am so proud of my mom for making this decition to buy a trailer rather than renting. I just took a few pics of the place after mom babysat the kids the other night. I forgot to write that the bed is so comfy and it is a queen size pillow top, King Coil! Anyway, enjoy! Here is mom showing off her home. Posted by Picasa

Mom is borrowing the TV for now but just got the DVD and VCR player which has already come in really handy! Posted by Picasa

The Way, Truth and Life. John 14:6


A man may go to heaven......
without fame, without a great name;
without learning, without earnings;
without culture, without beauty;
without friends and without ten thousand other things--
But he can "NEVER" go to Heaven without Christ.

Just reminded of how beautiful they are!

Joel and Annabelle, looking cute together.
Joshua had a really bad cold and rubbed his upper lip and under his nose raw, poor guy. I love this one, Joshua and Annabelle weren't even phased by the screaming.
Camping, Joel was having a great time!
Me and Joel, having a little snuggle.
Annabelle, I love how short her little legs look. Her pig tails... I love pig tails.
One of Joel's first real meals in his high chair. He had mohalk type hair for the first year. So cute!
Monster Daddy and Joshua, he was around 10 months old.
I will never forget this smile. He only did it when he was teething though. This is Joshua, back when we had satalite dish and I watch Wheel of Fortune with him everyday, he loved the colors.
Joshua and my Belle. She was almost as big as him and was about 3 months old hahahaha. How cute, he always wanted to hold her.
Joshua and I all dressed up for Thanksgiving dinner.
Annabelle, she was my squishiest baby.
Joshua and I at a Choices dinner. I loved that suit on him. We actually bought it for Chris and Christy's wedding and Joshua fit it for over a year. He grew really slow.
Annabelle, always bruised up. She was standing on a little table and fell off onto another toy and got the black eye. Just days earlier she had had her measles shot and she broke out in the measles rash. The day after this she went to walk out the door and fell and scraped her nose up. She seemed a little accident prone but now it just fine, more careful by the day, Thank God!
Joshua and I having a snuggleMy sis, Virginia with all the kids at Christmas time 2 years ago. I sure do miss her!
