Happy Fathers day honey

Well here we are at another Fathers Day. I do have to say as far as dads go I picked a man for a husband that is a good father. He makes sure that the boys are have a great moral fiber and most importantly he is a man of God. I have seen that growth alot in the last few years. For that I am very thankful because alot of my girlfriends don't have that.

I married this man 14 years ago and we had 2 sons (one came before the marriage) Zack is 15 and Dylan is 12. So I went from a house full of women to all guys (even the dogs) The boys at times think that their dad is just harping on them all the time but he wants better for them and cares a great deal about their future. He surely doesn't want them to struggle the way we have.

The man in this picture is right up there with my daddy as dads go. He is such a great foundation in that family. He is the center of them all and has done a wonderful job at making God and family the most important things in life. Thank you Tommy for what you gave to me I love ya and Happy Fathers Day

This is our wonderful family with our growing children I could not have asked for a better blend...

Happy Fathers Day Henry I love you thank you for our children our marriage and our life....

Happy Fathers Day Daddy

So Sunday is Fathers Day and I have been blessed to have one of the best there is. My dad was blessed with 2 daughters 12 years apart. Was he a glutten for punishment!!!! Well, anyway I love him dearly despite my actions have not always shown that. I have put my daddy through so much with stupid decisions but he always has loved me and gave me the best advice he can. I love you daddy

This is my sister Julie, my daddy Rusty and me. My Dad had 2 daughters as you can see but out of that he got 2 great son in laws and 2 grandsons that love their Pawpaw dearly

My mom and dad have been married nearly 37 years (in September) that seems to be unheard of with alot of my friends. Despite the hard times they went through over all those years I believe they love each other more now than they ever did before. I am so lucky to have parents who have overcome alot of obstacles and love us and tell us the way it really it is.

I love you daddy.... Happy Fathers Day

Fallen off the wagon

Ok so I have fallen off the blogging wagon lately... geez been awhile. Let's see, probably no pics this time but i will do my best to get back on track. Since the 1sot of June not a whole heck of alot has been goin on. We got out of school on June 11th. Zack will be a sophmore and Dylan is goin into the 7th grade. Dylan also scored perfect on his math SOL. For those not in VA that is a standard of learing test the kids have to take here VERY IMPORTANT, or so they say.
We went to my nephew Daniels 5th grade graduation. My mother in law cannot believe he is gonna be in the middle school and she has no more grandbabies in elementary school.
We went to Asheboro Zoo with Dylan and his class had so much fun. Henry loves the zoo. I think we will go back before the summer is over. I hope we do so that we won't have 15 kids to keep up with. We stayed with Henrys cousin Thresa and her family that weekend and went to an extended Scott dinner. Like all of Henry's granddads siblings and their families. It was the first one and we all hope there are more.
Dylan just got back from his 4th year of 4H camp today. He loves it. He plans to go as a CIT (counselor in training) next year. He actually got to do a little of that this year and was the CIT in his lodge. They go to Smith Mountain Lake, very nice. He is tired tonight though and hit the bed before 9pm.
Zack has started his summer lifting and we just found out yesterday that he is old enough now to play softball with our church so he is very excited to do that. We are in the process of trying to find him a job. He gets his learners next month so money will have to start coming in a little to do the whole car thing. So if you know of anyone who employee a 15 year old for a few days a week (not on Sunday) let me know.
Henry is working and football is kicking back in early this year. We go to Galax (my hometown) on the 24th for a 7 on 7 tournament. That is where they play without alot of hitting and the coaches can be on the field.
We are heared to Henrys grandmothers 80th bday party next week too, we are looking forward to that. Also this fathers day weekend we will be on the lake with mom and dad and my sister and brother in law. I cannot wait.
My most favorite thing right now is that I am down 21 pounds. WOO HOO...
