Sunday morning we had little Josiah baptised at LPC. The nice thing was that Terry's brother Kerry and his sister Merry got to come for this special occasion. They arrived around 9am and of course I was still in the middle of getting every body presentable since the entire family was going to stand in front of the congregation. Josiah did great. He has had a bit of a problem with spitting up so I made sure that he had a bib on before the baptism, The entire time we were waiting he did great- no drooling, no spitting up! Well, we got called up to the front of the sanctuary and guess what- he spits up, all over himself and Mommy. Oh well, I tried:) I have to say, everybody did great, no screaming, crying or picking noses (or at least I didn't notice it). After church, Terry got to drive Kerry's new Mustang to the restaurant. I am sure he enjoyed that very much. I am thinking that if he could trade his little green truck in for a brand new Mustang he would:) I guess a Mustang is not really a family car is it???

After lunch we went back home and while the men looked under the hood of the Mustang, Merry and I tried to get some more Birthday/Christmas shopping done-which was not successful. Everybody had a great time. The kids love their aunt and uncle very much. It is too bad we don't live closer. They would have a blast with all of them:)

Well, I better get going for now. I have a baby to feed. I am hoping to had a picture of the baptism.

Searching for the perfect gift...

Wow, what a day, I guess Christmas has really started. Terry and I started to make a list and checked it twice and today I went to 7 different stores to find ONE gift but could not find it.I went to two different Wal-Mart's,Sam's and two different Best Buy's. When I got home I called two different Targets and they both said they had this certain item in store but when I got there they said they were sold out. I could not believe it. I was SO mad. I really have no idea if I will be able to get it but we will have to wait and see. Next Friday some friend's of ours have offered to have the kids over for a sleep over so we can go on a date. We are hoping to get a lot of our shopping done then.

So, while I was driving all over town to find this " perfect gift", Terry and the kids were raking leaves. They were having so much fun.. I wish I could have taken some pictures but that didn't happen oh well. They still have the entire back yard to do. So I hope I will take some pictures then.

Well, that is it for now. Tomorrow is another big day. We are having Josiah baptised and I am planning to take pictures. So as soon as I have them, I will post them. Uncle Kerry and Aunt Merry are coming which the kids are very excited about (and so are we of course). It has been a while since they have seen them.

Now that our family is complete (although it is still missing a dog) I thought it would be a great time to start a "blog" and let all our friends and family around the world know what is going on in "The Rogers Neighborhood". Joel is getting ready to turn 8 years old in about 12 days. I cannot BELIEVE it. How can my little boy be turning 8! He is getting so big. He is in second grade now and got his first report card with actual grades on it. And can you believe it, he got all A's. He definitely got that from his daddy, not me. He loves school and has made some great friends. Riley is now in 4K and loves going to school. Although her days are only half days, she does go Monday-Friday. She loves her teachers and is learning alot. The other day she surprised us all when we were having dinner and she started saying the Pledge of Allegiance all by herself. WOW!
Jesse is almost 3 1/2 and loves being silly. He is the joker in the family so his nick name "Jester" really does fit. It is alot of fun to talk with him and see what all he has to say. We just have to worry about him when he goes to school-I already feel sorry for his teachers:) Our little Josiah is getting big too. I can't believe he is almost 6 months old. We thought our kids were easy, but he is on the top of the list. He started sleeping through the night at 2 weeks. I guess being child number 4 you really do have to be patient. I can't wait to see what he is going to be like. A lot of people say that he looks different then the other children. Joel, Riley and Jesse all love Josiah (or Joelsiah as Jesse calls him) very much. They all want to hold him and play with him.
God has blessed me. He has given me a great husband and great kids. I can't wait to see what He has in store for us.
To be continued...
