Hello Everyone this is Nolen.

I am writing you today because select students from my school have been offered an incredible learning journey. I have the chance to travel abroad to England, Scotland, and France for an 11 day journey in March 2016. Since I am underage my Mom will also be traveling with me. Within those 11 days we will get to visit the cities of Edinburgh, Yorkshire, Warwick, Stratford, Oxford, London, and Paris. We will be a member of a tour group that travels with an expert tour guide and will learn while exploring historic sites such as, Edinburgh Castle, New College, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, the Effel Tower, the homes of Alexandar Graham Bell, and Anne Hathaway, just to name a few. This opportunity is once in a lifetime and I am privileged to be able to have a chance to travel internationally at such a young age!!

However, this trip is costly and to be able to afford the journey we are humbly asking for help. Any monetary amount that you contribute to our fund would greatly benefit our upcoming trip. I am very appreciative of your generosity. If you are not able to give at this time, we ask for Prayers in our time of fundraising and especially in our journey next spring.

Mom has added the links to our Donations page right above my letter.

Again Thank You for Support and Prayers.

Catch Up

Time for me to play catch up on my blog. I know family likes to keep up with us on here. I PROMISE I will be blogging more in the future.


Nolen: Our little guy is trying really hard to raise money for his trip to Europe in the Spring. He is Thriving in school. We learned he earned a perfect score on his Math T-cap test. He did not get that from his Mom!  Nolen just started 5th and loves it. He got his first locker this year. Nolen loves to watch old NASCAR races after school. He loves anything to do with cars or History. His sense of humor has me laughing these days. He is mellow like his father. They both have witty come back lines. He is the glue that keeps me together most days. He is a giant helper and ALWAYS tries to calm any situation. He is starting to turn into a teenager before our eyes and I am not ready.

Trevor: Our little ball of energy is playing Flag Football and LOVES it. Uncle John is the head coach. Which make Trev and Mitchell an AWESOME DUO! Together they have a lot of Touch downs. Trev just started 3rd grade and it is very challenging. The workload for an 8 year old is a bit excessive in my opinion. All of his buddies are in his class so that makes him happy. Trev is really into guns. The men in our family are awesome and patience with him. They are great when it comes to teaching him about gun safety and gun respect. He is a good little sharp shooter!  He says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up. He enjoys studying the different types of guns. He really enjoys learning about fish and sharks too. He is your typical little boys who loves all things action or blood and guts. He is his own person and marches to his own beat. He is the very sensitive and has a huge heart. I love that about my little guy. He is still a huge Mama boy and always will be!!

Grayson: The Baby is smack in the middle of Potty Training and he could careless. He has been my hardest to Train no doubt. We are starting to see it click in his brain so hopefully he won't start kindergarten in pull-ups. He still has attachment issues but he started Mother's Day Out and LOVES. He hasn't cried once which is a big change from last year. There are some days he doesn't leave my side which can be exhausting at times.  His vocabulary is growing every day. He knows his colors and can count to 10!! All he talks about is camping.  He LOVES the camper. He is the baby and knows it. He can manipulate any of us into getting him anything he wants. His little personality cracks us up daily. He is a mixture of Nolen and Trevor. His Smiles melts us. We adore our little Baby even if he thinks hes a Big Boy now!!

Snow and Ice

All we have had for the past two weeks is Snow and Ice. It is very pretty however we are over it. The kids missed 8 days of school and Craig has been slammed at work. We had a few good days to play in snow but we have cabin fever. We are ready for Spring and Camping season. I LOVE taking pictures of the Snow. First we about an inch of ice then about 3 inches of snow. It was gorgeous!!

Happy New Year


 My boys grew so much in 2014 I am excited to see how much they grow in 2015! I think this is the year that Nolen grows taller than me!! Nolen's foot officially out grew mine in 2014 and we can share shirts. Trevor and Grayson got new teeth in 2014. Trev cut his hair and Gray grew hair.  Daddy got an AMAZING new job that he loves. Mom well she walked about 150 miles her goal was 100!!! We already have some wonderful things in the works for 2015 we can't wait to see how they unfold!! 

Happy New Year

Christmas 2014

I am going to be honest Christmas 2014 was not what we really expected. Christmas normally is a whirlwind of chaos for us and it was no different this year. Unfortunately the week before Christmas Trevor and Grayson were very sick little boys. Grayson did not have all his energy back and Trevor struggled as well. Gray was very unhappy Christmas Eve and Day. The timing with our events messed with his nap and bedtimes schedule. He is a child that NEEDS his routine. He was a cranky tired toddler who cried the majority of the day. Holidays are hard on kids and even harder on toddlers. They are getting pulled in several different directions in a short period of time and their little bodies just can't adjust. Thankfully Craig and I tag teamed holding him even though he wanted his Daddy the majority of the time. Next year we will let him sleep!!! The Big Boys on the other had THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER according to them. They got Legos, Nascar gear, Cars, and Guns. We were told it beat out the year they got their ipads. Score some points for Santa :) Thankfully they still believe in the Magic and love the traditions that come this time of year. Other than a cranky toddler our Christmas was a success!! Now bring on 2015!!

Little Baller.

Our Little Baller Trevor Wayne is doing Awesome this year. I LOVE watching this guy play basketball. He has scored in every game. He has several assists and has some wonderful ball handling skills. I can say all this because he is mine and he gets all his B-Ball talent from me hahaha!! We have half a season left and we can't wait.
