Potty Training....

Bodie has been showing some interest in the potty chair, so we thought we would work on some potty training... Wish I could say this task is completed, but I can't... I have a little boy that will run around and as long as he is naked, he will pee in the potty. However, if you put undies on him or a pull up he will pee in them and not the potty... HMMM.... I can't let him go everywhere naked, so now what, lol! Any suggestions? Austin and Hailee were so easy and did it pretty much by themselves so I am not pushing the issue with Bodie in hopes he will just do it. But if someone has any ideas that would help I could sure use them :)

This picture...

This picture just makes me smile...

Jesse is an amazing man, husband, and father. I love that I get to spend everyday with him while we grow old :) He knows how to put a smile on my face when I have a bad day, he knows that when I am crying that I just need to be held, he just knows the right things to do... It's his simple kisses on the forehead everymorning before he leaves for work that just makes my day. I couldn't of been blessed with a better man.

On this day, I am thankful for my husband who watched the kids while I went to a 31 meeting in Bloomington with other 31 consultants! He is so supportive of all my new things I have taken on. Of course by the time I got home he was ready for a break, but at least he is willing to help out and watch the kiddos while keeping the house straight. I have a terrific husband, and the kids are blessed with a GREAT dad. Love you Jesse!!

Today I got Hailee started on her schooling (Abeka DVD program). She was sitting at the table listening and learning the sounds of letters. Bodie Kale decided that he wanted to sit by her and listen in too. As I am picking up the house, I can hear him repeating the sounds that the teacher is making... Seriously it was so sweet to listen to him try so hard and concentrate. For times like these, I realize I have so much to be thankful for!!

Our Trick R Treaters

Hope everyone enjoyed Halloween!! I know my kids did :) They loved dressing up, and walking in our subdivision to get candy... They were so sweet, saying Trick or Treat, and Thank you!! Especially Bodie Kale our little monkey, after the first house and he figured out what he was doing he was ready. He would get his candy, say Thank You and Bye like 50 times before leaving their houses. :)

I love sweet pictures like the next one. They really do melt my heart at times :) I am so glad they have each other as siblings!

Hailee Brooke Soccer Season

Jesse and I were brave this year and decided that not only would we coach Austin's Division 4 team, but we would also coach Hailee's Division 1 team... Yeah at times I thought I was CRAZY, but really I did enjoy it. I know the kids had fun, and Hailee absolutely loved mommy and daddy being her coach

Here is our team picture at our final game with their trophies!! They were so excited to get a TROPHY!! And yes Coach Jesse is missing because he was on call and at a job site :(

Way to go Yellow Jackets!! Thanks for a great soccer season :)

We have had a super busy weekend.... After all that excitement on Saturday, on Sunday we headed for Odon.... We attended a Suprise cookout for Grandma Maggie Swartzentruber :) It was for her birthday. The kids had so much fun playing with their cousins that they don't see often, and the adults had a good time socializing and catching up. There was lots of yummy food, along with cake and carmel apples. I think everyone had a good time. Happy Birthday Grandma Maggie!

Bodie trying out Grandma Maggies orange pop :) He was glad she shared it with him.
Adalyn Smith trying to give Bodie a kiss. So sweet!!

We had a birthday celebration for him on Saturday, and he had so much fun!!

We had family, and neighbors over for a few hours to join in on the celebration. We rented a bouncy castle (which was a big hit). Bodie loved it and wore himself out... He slept really good that night :)

Happy Birthday to our Sweet little Man!!

Soccer games begin...

Saturday was opening day for Soccer! The kids have been so excited about their first game, and that grandma and grandpa Swartzentruber was coming to watch them :) Jesse and I are coaching both Division 4 (Austin) and Division 1 (Hailee). This has been keeping us busy especially on Thursday nights and on Saturday's with practices back to back and games back to back. We really enjoy it though!

Hailee Brooke, she had so much fun running and chasing the ball across the field. She did a great job at playing.

Here is Austin and his team! We lost our first game 5-4, but we played a great game. Austin led the team with 3 goals!! I love coaching this age and watching them work together as a team. They set up plays, pass the ball, cheer each other on, ect. I have a wonderful team in both Divisions!!

a new journey in life

Starting a new journey in life is a little scary, but also very exciting :) Many of you know that I have been trying to loose weight and get healthy. I want you all to know that I worked hard and I have reached my goal weight and I am maintaining it!! I lost 55 lbs in about 4 1/2 months and now I have been maintaining my weight for a little over a month.

Here is a picture of me now!

Here is a picture of me in October of last year... I tried searching for old pictures but the truth is I hid from the camera...

The transition is amazing! I am happy to say that this has really inspired me. I want to be someone that can help others and show them they can get the weight off and keep it off. I joined the Take Shape for Life group and I am now a healthcoach. I am very excited to see where this takes me, and I hope that I can really help people that want it!! If you want any information or want to make this lifestyle change feel free to email me at . I would love to help and share my story!!

Mexican Food, and Putt Putt Golf

My mom and Dad, Clayton, Lexie, and Lily joined us for supper at the Mexican Resturant. We thought we would celebrate Clayton's birthday since it was Saturday. I think Lexie got a little embarrased when Clayton had to wear this hat, ha ha.
After supper we went for some putt putt golf. It was a little hot but everyone had fun.

Even little Miss Lily enjoyed her family time. This was her hanging out in her stroller :)

After putt putt we departed and Jesse and I took the kids to scoop for ice cream. Then back to room where everyone was more then ready for bed.

Next stop

Our next stop was to Uncle Clayton's and Lexie's house. The kids wanted to meet their sweet cousin LILY! Well Bodie fell asleep before we got there.

But Austin and Hailee had fun loving on her... they enjoyed holding her and watching all her little movements.

Even Uncle Jesse held Miss Lily! She is so precious..

After leaving Clayton's we checked in at our hotel Baymont in Washington. Clayton and his family joined us for some swimming and hot tub time :)


Sunday morning we head to Daviess County... 1st stop was Bill and Cindy's to visit. We enjoyed lunch before heading to the pond. Here are a few pictures of what we had fun doing...

The kids were impressed with their dad's skills (4 wheeler wheelies, and jumping of the deck doing a flip into the pond).

Boat rides for everyone :)

And lots of swimming in the pond. They loved it!!

Our little girl is...

Hailee asked her daddy to take off her training wheels on the bike. She practiced for about a week, and was determined to ride with no training wheels. And now she if offically riding:)

Our little girl is growing up! Way to go Brooktini! We are so proud of your accomplishment and your determination. :)

4th of July

Hope you all had a GREAT 4th of July weekend!! I know we did. Saturday and Sunday consisted of swimming and grilling out at home! Monday the 4th we hung out at home, then my parents came up to enjoy the fireworks with us. We headed to the park at about 8pm for Fireworks~ they have live music there and food stands that start at 6 and play til 10. So we got to enjoy some of that before fireworks!!

The fireworks were really good! All the kids loved them, but were so tired cause it was way past our bedtimes. By the time we got home and got everyone to bed it was 11:45!! Way to late!

Lily Arabella Wise

It was a long day Friday, as everyone awaited the arrival of Lily Arabella Wise, but it was definetaly worth the wait. At 8:26 pm Clayton and Lexie finally got to meet their precious little girl, Lily Arabella. Lily weighed 6lbs 12 ounces and was 20 inches long.
I have to tell you that I could of sat there all night and just watched my brother's face. Clayton's whole life has changed, because he is a daddy now! His face was glowing, and the smile on his face was priceless. I always knew Clayton would be a good daddy, and now he is showing us. Lily is so sweet, and has her daddy wrapped around her finger.
Lexie did an amazing job! I know she will be a good mommy to Lily. I wish that you could of seen their faces as they were holding their precious little girl. Congrats Clayton and Lexie~ we love you both, and we love Lily!!

Isn't she so sweet!! I already miss her!!
