I'm Thankful....

Well since it is November and almost thanksgiving I feel like I need to talk about what I am most thankful for which is my children. I know sometimes I complain about them and so does others but I do love them so much. I will start with Tyalan.


Taylan was such a struggle for me since she was born with her non stop crying for the first six months of her life and her endless curiosity for example throwing a dozen eggs around my kitchen,eating whatever she could find therefore resulting in calling poison control four times, and never holding still running in every direction. It seems like just recently she has grown up so much and has become such a good girl. She loves her brother and protects him when necessary, she loves pre-school and primary she love to learn, she loves dancing and gymnastics and does it all day long. She loves to eat and do anything with her mom mostly shop(for stretch pants). We love her so much and she is such a blessing to our family.

My Ryder was such a different story. He was the best baby always so snuggly and sweet until he reached about 18 months and it all changed he is now two and a half and he is a little bit of a monster he enjoys his fits and making messes non stop. I am thankful for him for many reasons he is pretty funny he makes me laugh daily he calls me Korie Hansen instead of mom he talks pretty good now and copies what everyone says sometimes not a good thing but it is cute. He loves his dad he loves to play football with him and read books. His favorate things are horses, motorcycles and four wheelers, cars, tractors and trucks, food, TV,and anything outside. He is a handful and keeps us busy but we love him so much and do not know what we would do without him.

Your kids are so cute. The girls talk about them and playing with them at Milsite. I think we all have to complain a little about our kids, but wouldn't trade them for anything.

Your kids are wonderful. Tay looks alot like lacy in that picture. Hollie did a great job with the pics if she did them. Riggs keeps thinking your kids are a grams's. He says he is going up there. I said there not there. He is not believing me so if you come call down or send the kids down. It will be fun!!! Karen
