First post from iPhone

Well this weekend has been very productive, yesterday I ventured out early in the morning to go to a grab bag sale that was at Once Upon a Child, and of course it was closed. So while was out I stopped at walmart Nd pick up some things, it was such a pleasnt experience, it was not busy and everyone seemed really really nice. It may have been a sympathetic, your crazy for being our too, kind of nice but just the same nice@ walmart. Then by the time I got home the snow was too wet to play in so I decided to break out the sewing machine and try to figure out how to thread if. I was pretty succesful and even made 2 kids scarfs and a burp cloth for a friend. While I was sewing Brent painted the bathroom and Jake made some major progress with his potty training. All in all a productive day. Today was also a good day for some unfinished projects like laundry and cleaning. So after a quick trip out in the frozen snow, there was vaccuuming and folding and dusting, now there is napping and relaxing.
I'm thinking that when Brent and Jake wake up from there naps we will head over to walmart and pick ip some fabrik for my new hobby, I just need to get some ideas now that I have mastered scarfs. Any ideas send them this way!

This has been a much needed weekend, thank you Lord for working in great and mighty ways, and for providing us with everything that we need!

Well its been a while.
I cant say -I'm back to blogging, life at the Myers house is a little busy these days. However, I have been sick this week with just about everything but the Swine Flu. Monday night I started out with the Stomach bug, which after a days worth of bed rest I got a sinus infection and by Friday It was topped off with, NOT pink eye- but and eye infection. All very tolerable on their own, but there is something special about them all together that just wiped- me- out.

I stayed home from work on Tues- the rest of the week I had a Mind over Matter approached topped with Sudafed and finally a Z pack! Needless to say all day today was spent resting- letting my body recoup. While my wonderful- wonderful husband was taking care of all the mommy and daddy duties today. So i had plenty of time to catch up on some over due blog reading. It was great to catch up and see what everyone is doing.

It seems there is a theme in the blogs i have been reading- being transparent. I would have to say that I'm cautious about being transparent with my thoughts. Partly b/c I feel that no one wants to read what I think. The other part is b/c I'm terrible with words- spelling them and putting them together to make a complete thought. This is the reason that most of what i post are pictures.

I think i have learned a little from those who have written a little more openly- I'm still a bad speller and am not good with words- however, inspired to write....

Fourth of July Fun and Apple Tree "Staged"

Ok, so I know this is a little late but hey it's not even Emelie posting this time it's Daddy (Brent). Mommy is busy now-a-days trying to find time to work on the site so, maybe I'll be consistently in on the action now (maybe?). So if you remember in past blogs, we planted some two apple trees in the backyard along w/ a maple tree. Well, it's only been a year and a half and one of them has just produced our first apple, it's a little too ripe but none the less it tasted ok. Daddy (me) took a picture of it to show Jake, I had to take a photo of it because I noticed it 2 days ago and forgot to take Jake out to look at it while still attached to the tree, well, I was out mowing the yard yesterday and almost ran over the thing, so I ran inside and told Emelie and she told me to go back and, "Stick it back on the tree and take a picture of it for Jake !" so today (Sunday) I did and proceeded to show Jake the picture of the apple on the tree. I think maybe he grasped the concept that the apple came from the apple tree but I'm really not sure, in fact he probably had no clue despite the "fake picture".

So yeah, mommy is off at ECE (East Coast Encounter) w/ our youth ministry from Christs Church, she left us today and will not be back until Friday! (YEAH!) Babe if you read this, I'm only kidding. We've missed you like crazy already!!

So, anywho this was a fun fourth of July video we shot at the fair in Eden, NC near my parents place in Reidsville. Jake got to endulge in his first funnel cake, some more cotton candy and to top it all off the firework show didn't start until like 10pm so it took all we could to keep him up to catch the first 4 or 5 BANGS! of the show and then he dozed off. We couldn't believe it, but hey, we've trained him to sleep through anything, so hey, what could we you do ?? At my parents house he also got his first taste of eating corn on the cob (started by Granna). My mom began eating hers and decided to see if Jake would take, and he did, he loved it. Here's some more video and pics from my folk's backyard in some pool fun! Check it out!

Ayden

I am crazy busy, but would like to take a minute and show you something amazing-
this is baby Ayden Jones- i will let mom formally introduce him to you when she gets home from the hospital. I was lucky enough to get to hold him and mom even let me smell him and kiss him. While holding him the softy in me just teared right up bring back the memories of when Jake was born- There is just something to be said about the Joy a baby can bring. Mom and Dad were was so calm and relaxed it was amazing to see them in there moment. I was not quick enough with the camera or i would have shown you the family portrait that they posed for but could not take b/c i had a 2 year old in my lap. It was definitely a wonderful sight. We love you Baby Ayden!!!

blessing through a child.......

With everything that is going on all over the world there is one thing that is always a comfort and that is the joy of a child. Thank you Lord for the blessings a child can bring......

Sunday after church we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and fill up one of his sand boxes with water and play for a bit- the water was a little cold but i think he enjoyed it. Jake does not have too much to play with in the yard but we can be pretty crafty with what we have.....thank you greenville free cycle.....






A little blessing to Aunt Meghan- ( Me'me') Uncle Adam (Abum) Aunt Christina (To- we will work on that) Aunt Katie (Kati) - Unce Dusty too ( Dosty)- we love you all miss you!!!
