On a new Path!!

I am in the lines of the unemployed now with all the other Americans that are out of a job. This is so scary for me. Since I quit on Friday I have been having so many anxiety attacks. I know I did the right thing! I know Heavenly Father will be with me through it all. In the morning I will redo my resume and start on the great hunt. In some ways I am looking forward to seeing were it will lead and what wonderful things will happen through all this. I just really worry about the boys. I know they are going to like me being home more. Maybe I will find a great stay at home JOB, maybe one that has me home on the weekends, Who knows maybe there will be a way I can go back to college. There are so many possibilities and I am excited about them. Please send prayers!!

Jacob and Jared's Weekend!

On the 4th of September my babies turned the BIG 13. They are teenagers and no longer little boys any more. You know they will always be moms babies. We had a great FUN weekend. I took a couple of day off so we could celebrate this big event in their lives. Here are a few pictures. This first picture is of them together in the car on the way to eat HOT WINGS AND WATCH THE COWBOYS PLAY Jacob is a big fan and that is the only thing he wanted to do Friday evening was watch them play so we had to go where they had it playing since we don't get many channels at home. This also an unusual picture since they hate their pictures taken, eyes are always closed or look closed in their pics, and they are close together (which never happens).


Here is Ali with her brothers. Jared, Jacob and myself went to Ali and Cords house in Jacksonville, Saturday evening so they could celebrate with them since Ali had to work all weekend and couldn't come to Daytona to celebrate with us.

Here are the boys and Keith entering Daytona Lagoon for a fun day in the water and SUN! I was in bad need of a day to relax and get some SUN. My body hasn't seen a great day in the SUN in a looonnnnngggg time. I was a ghost out there.


Lazer TAG was a big hit with the boys.


Dylan is THE HOOLA HOOP KING He enters every contest they have and he loves to hoola hoop. He has won several contests but today was not that day. That is one of the things I admire and love about him is his willingness to join in on everything even when he doesn't even have a clue as how to do it. He just wants to have fun and experience everything life has to offer him.




WATER SLIDES are always a big hit even with me. Climbing up those stairs now is another thing since I am out of shape and scared of heights but I do it anyway. I might be huffing and a puffing, completely out of breath by the time I reach the top but I love water slides.


Jared has WON the race as you can see his feet coming out the slide.




Jacob coming down on the tube


Jared coming down the one next to Jacob


Jacob is my messy eater and as you can see he is a real mess as he is eating all those WINGS AND WATCHING FOOTBALL!

DOUBLE RAINBOW

ON THE WAY TO THE BOYS BIRTHDAY BREAKFAST AT BURGER KING (their pick not mine) THIS IS WHAT WE SAW. JACOB TOOK THESE OUT THE JEEP WINDOW AS WE WERE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. I DIDN'T REALIZE IT WAS A DOUBLE RAINBOW UNTIL I UPLOADED THE PICTURES. I JUST LOVE RAINBOWS AND I CRY AND HAVE GOOSEBUMPS EVERYTIME I SEE THEM. IT MAKES ME THINK ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS!!!! WE ARE SO BLESSED WITH ALL THIS BEAUTY AROUND US DAILY THAT MOST OF US TAKE FOR GRANTED.

This is what the boys do in the mornings before they are off to school. Dylan is already gone and out of the house by 5:30am for Seminary and High School starts at 7:26am. Jacob and Jared don't have to be at school until 8:50 so they have lots of time on their hands to do something constuctive. We don't allow television or video games during the school week. there is so much going on like: HOMEWORK!!, CHORES!!, FAMILY TIME, SPORTS, SCOUTS, CLEANING ONES SELF (this is a big one if you have boys like mine that don't want to take a shower and get clean), READING A GOOD BOOK,etc. I am sure when I am not home they are sneaking on the television in my room. I was just impessed on this particular morning they were getting along and not fussing with each other. I love to see them playing together.
