My Baby is Walking

Since he was like 2 weeks old, Zach insisted on standing on our laps rather than sitting. He's always on the move, and his favorite spot in the house is the living room where he can move around all of the couches. He's been starting to stand up on his own, but as soon as he realizes it he sits down because he was afraid of falling.

Then today... I went to pick Zach up after dance from his Grandmother Schisler's house only to find that my baby had started to walk and I missed it. He did however show off for his mommy and take a few steps (about 3). He then also showed off for Daddy when we got home and took several more steps. I also was able to get him walking on video, so as soon as I figure out how to transfer it to the computer I will try and upload a video. I can't believe my baby is starting to walk at 9 1/2 months!

Also, one last thing. I wanted to say congratulations to our friends Travis and Desty Ellis. They welcomed Kailyn Marie Ellis into this world this afternoon at 2:53pm, she weighed 7lbs. 7oz.

Warm Soup for a Cold Day

Recently I signed up to be a part of General Mills Psst.. Program. This program offers high value coupons to those who are willing to share them and pass them on to their friends.
I just received my first set of coupons for $1.10 off a single can of any Progresso soup. I went to Walmart today to purchase my soup and it's on sale for 1.50 a can, so with the coupons you will only pay $0.40 a can!
If you would like a coupon you can leave a comment with your email address, or email me at

The more coupons I pass out, the more offers I will receive in the future, so I would love to share these with you!

Have a great Monday!

A Night of Worship

I am so proud of my dance girls! They got to dance for church tonight during the Worship & Arts Kids night. They did a great job, we had a lot of ups and downs this week, but God was faithful through it all and everything was so beautiful. Here are just a few pics from tonight! (Sorry about the lighting)

A Quick Update

The last few weeks have been a little crazy around here, so I apologize for not updating the blog sooner. I actually tried to update last week and I got all my pictures loaded, and all my comments made and then I logged into my other gmail account and it closed out everything and all was lost :( I was really frustrated by that point so I just gave up.

Zachary is growing up so fast. He is quickly turning from a baby into a little boy. The other day he decided that the fireplace looked entertaining so within about 60 sec. he crawled over to the fireplace, crawled up on the hearth, opened the doors and was standing up inside the fireplace when I found him.

Now before you call DHS on me, I was in the kitchen making cookies for Monday night football, and I was watching him play quietly by the couch. THEN... I walked over to the oven to check the cookies and that's when he made his escape. As soon as I walked back over to the sink, there he was inside of the fireplace.

I know these pictures aren't of him actually inside the fireplace, but I pulled him out of the fireplace before I decided to take a picture and I didn't want him to get back in and get his clothes all messed up. I am also posting a picture of my burned cookies. In all the cleaning up I forgot that I had put my cookies back in the oven and they got a little dark.

Here is Zach, He was excited that he found a new place to play.
Here are his nicely soiled hands :)
and here are my dark and crispy cookies.
Zachary also got a new haircut last week. He loves the bottle of gel.
He also loves playing with the comb. I love this picture I think he looks like he's singing.
