Things I love about my boys.....









I'll start with Matt....
I love his smell, especially the smell of his underarms! (when I do laundry, I sniff his shirts)
I love how active he is. For example....today after church, the boys and I napped and he swam laps at the pool!
I love how hard he works. He puts in so much hard work all day then comes home and works even harder! (may be the reason why he sets his reminder on his phone to "take my B12")
I love that he is so involved in his boys lives. He's always said "they're half mine...why would I make you do everything." He loves them more than anything in this world.
I love that every night before we go to sleep I say "sleep good" and he says "you too sweetie." We've said that every night for the past nine years!!
I could keep going with Matt, but I'll move on to Hayden.....
I love that he tells me every night to have happy dreams.
I love that he calls Carson his little "stinker bug."
I love that he calls coyotes "karate's" and tilts his head back and howls like one.
I love that he is one of the most polite little kids around! ( he says please and thank you etc. way more than I do!)
And on to my Carson.....
I love that he is so curious that when you tell him "no-no" he just looks and grins b/c he's gonna keep doing it no matter what!
I love that when I say "give me kisses" he gives me the best little kiss and slips me the tongue!
I love that he has so many rolls in his leg that he gets "chapped."
I love that he's so chubby, he sweats like a fat man!
I don't know what spurred this post but since I had such a cute picture of my boys right before church this morning, I thought I'd send a little shout out to them! I've got the best guys around. My favorite thing Hayden tells me is "I'm a silly goose, Dadda's a silly goose, Carson's a silly goose...but you're a princess Momma." Here's to my boys....I love all three of you!!

Isn't it amazing that even after days like the one you wrote about last time, you can turn around the next day and feel so blessed and appreciate the good things about your kids? I enjoyed your post!

How precious! You've got such a beautiful family, and Melanie's right, what would we do without them?

What a sweet post. I have been meaning to comment for a while now but I am blogging less these days. We thought we might see ya'll in Brownwood for the 4th. I wanted to tell you that I have been praying for you ever since I heard the MS diagnosis, and I am amazed at your strength and courage! I check in on you pretty reguraly even if I don't always have time to comment. As for your last post, I am in it with you! Pierson has cut 7 teeth this month! Just about the time I think we're done, another one starts budding through and we're up all night again with constant crying! He's also crawling and into everything which is driving his siter crazy. She is used to having her toys stay where she left them, but no more!

You are one lucky mama! They are going to love you to death forever! There is something about a son's love for his mama....different than a daughter's. 3 Cheers to the boys! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! :)

I like that you are a princess. I think you should wear a crown around your house. Had fun at VBS.
