My name is Crystal. I married my best friend Derick over 6 years ago. Derick and I have been together over 14 years. We have two beautiful boys. Landon Kade 4 yrs old, Maddox Reece, who just turned 2, and an Angel in heaven. I love God and thank him for what He has given me in life. I attend New Life Fellowship Church. I believe in the power of Prayer and Miracles!!!
It is so hard to believe that Landon starts Kindergarten this year. Where has time gone? It seems like I was just holding him and feeding him a bottle. Its going to be bittersweet because I know that he will be taken care of and will be in a great class but then again I am going to miss him and the freedom that we had to just pick up and go whenever we wanted. Everyone please pray for this mama because I know that there will be some tears shed on my part lol!!!
Wow!!! Can't believe that it has been months since I have blogged. I have been so busy with Landon being in Pre-K and then playing T-Ball this year. The boys are doing great and are growing up way too fast. I have enjoyed seeing all the rainbow babies that have been born! Congrats to my friends Kelli Staats, Bridgette, Natalie, Tiffany, Kendra! You're babies are beautiful and I enjoy watching them grow up in pictures. Just wanted to check in the with my friends that I blog with and make sure everyone is doing great!!! Blessings to all of you!!!
Landon started Pre-K this year. He did good his first day. He went in and didn't cry. Wish I could say that about the rest of the week. He held on to me screaming his second and it broke my heart to leave him like that but I had to get to work. The next day was the same way. After lots of prayers, today was great. He was so excited to see his buddies and we had no tears. Thanking God for answering my prayers. This mommy couldn't have taken much more because he was breaking my heart!!!
I am such a bad mommy, Landon turned 4 at the end of June and I am just not sharing his Birthday photos. Anyway I just wanted to let you guys see pictures from both of the boys' parties. They both really enjoyed them :) We had Power Rangers for Landon and "OH Two-dles" Mickey and Minnie for Maddox and his friend Ingrid. Maddox will not be two until Sept.3 but that is Labor Day and so many have plans including us so we celebrated a little early. I am so sad that my babies are growing up. I wish time would slow down just a little.Hope you enjoy.

Beartooth Pass- The Kids With Grandpa
Beartooth Pass -Montana... Still had snow in the mountains
We flew out to see our family in Wyoming at the first of this month. We had a really great time. Just went by way too fast. (They have been gone for 7 months and its like a whole in your heart) It was nice just getting to visit with family and getting to see so many new places. I know my boys are young but I hope that they can remember something about our trip. I know that I can still remember when we went out West when I was a child. It was 18 years ago and it was the last trip that our whole family went on before we lost both of my great-grandmothers. What great Memories!!! Above are a few pictures from our trip. I hope you enjoy. The picture don't do some of the places we visited justice. It was so BEAUTIFUL!!!
