As I was folding clothes I look at the door to see what the boys were doing and this is what I saw. Caleb was being goofy by pressing his nose up against the glass door and throwing up a wrestling hand sign done by his favorite wrestler John Cena. The boy is obsessed with wrestling but it gives us something to take away when he is acting up..:)
But even with wrestling moves and his rowdiness both Caleb and JJ can be a sweet as their sister sometimes. I walked outside to once again check on them and I find them on the side of the house picking flowers. When I asked what they were doing Caleb said "Awww man you messed up the surprise mommy. We were picking flowers for you. I guess it's ok you can still have them." Both of them ran up the steps and handed me a handful of these yellow flowers, gave me a hug, and told me they loved me. It's moments like this that makes me so glad I had children. I don't think anything could make me happier than my kids telling me they love me or feeling them give me a great big hug. It's the greatest thing in the world!
Everyone who knows me knows I love to cook but there are some things I do not cook all the time. I have fixed honey baked ham one time and it was a little dry and burnt in some places. However, tonight I fixed one and it turned out so good I just had to take a picture of it and show it to everyone. I baked it for about 2 hours and the last 30 minutes I spread on a brown sugar and honey glaze. When it came out of the oven I became the most popular person in the house. I was very proud of myself and it made me so happy to see my boys (all 3 of them..lol) chow down on it. Needless to say I got more hugs and a couple of kisses.

JJ and Caleb were showing off their jump roping skills (but at least I can say they were jumping outside and not all over the house..lol) But please look closely at JJ. He dressed himself when we got home and chose to put a striped T-shirt, camo shorts and cowboy boots together. He is setting a new fad in the toddler redneck world.

After Daddy spent a very long and wet day at work he decided to come home, crash on the recliner and chill out by playing around on the Internet.
Cheyanne spent an hour of her busy schedule tonight at church in a group she started going to last week called GA (Girls in Action). They learn about the word of god, played games and earned prizes when they memorized bible verses. She absolutely loves it and her and her brothers plan to join the children's choir when the church starts it back up this year. Caleb and JJ will start going next Wednesday night to their own groups. A preschool group for JJ and a boys youth group for Caleb. I think they will really enjoy it and after not attending a church for most of their lives it will be very good for them to learn about Jesus. I'm so happy that they are getting involved in the community.
I was also quite happy that it rained today because my poor rose bush needed it. When we moved I decided that I was not going to leave it there after 2 years of love, care and it growing back after Grannie Lori's sweet dog Maggie pulled it up out of the ground. Anyone who knows me knows I have a black thumb and Joe and Charles pulled it up, I transplanted it in a pot and babied it for weeks until finally it started to grow again. You have never seen such a happy woman as I was the day I realized it was still alive. I hope everyone else had a happy "Wet Wednesday" like we did.
