Horrible, horrible poster here. And I truly hate that! I do..I got my book out the other day from my previous posts and enjoyed it so much. I have got to get back to it! Poor Kajae is going to think his little life wasn't blogworthy and it surely is! He is the sweetest baby and just loves his big sister. We are in Scottsboro right now for Spring Break and I have felt like crud. I swear I have had a touch of the flu or either the pollen has just overtaken my lungs. I am going to the doctor tomorrow and hopefully getting a shot to feel better. Kenny has the kids at his mom's today and I have rested at my parents. Looking forward to tomorrow and hope to have some fun the rest of the week. Will be back with pictures..promise! ;)

I am one happy Momma tonight..My baby girl asked Jesus in her heart. She had been asking questions for a few months and I kept putting her off to make sure she knew what she was doing. Her little conscience has been working and she has been distinguishing between right and wrong for sometime now and kept asking when she could do what she needed to do to get saved and baptized. After a Sunday School lesson this morning from her wonderful God-sent teachers, her heart and mind were working hard. She realized in Kindergarten that she had broken a commandment and that she had sinned against God. This made her very sad. We talked about how Jesus loves us and died for all the sins we would commit. The conversation ended..or so I thought. I wanted to make sure SHE was the one that asked to pray the prayer and SHE initiated it. I had went in the bedroom and her she came..tears in her eyes and said..”Momma I want to do the prayer and get saved today.” I said alright God, I hear you..I bent to my knees in the bedroom floor with her. Her little heart was so tender, so pure, so childlike just as the scripture says we all should be. She prayed the sinner’s prayer and asked the Lord to save her. We were both hot messes crying and I asked her where she would go if she were to die and she said HEAVEN! After wards, we went to her Sunday School teachers Mr. Jason and Mrs. Joy and she shared her news with them. They were elated and shared in the tears. It gave her the opportunity to ask more questions and I was glad they were there to help a little. Brylee thought it was really cool that her name was NOT in the Book of Life this morning, but it was this evening! She was very concerned and hoping that Jesus spelled it correctly..Mr. Jason told her, “Baby, He knew who you were before you were ever born..I think He’s got this!” After calling grandparents, great-grandparents, great uncles and cousins, she is just so happy. She said, “Momma, I can’t quit smiling, I am so happy!”
I am thrilled to know that she will spend her eternity with the One who created her. When we dedicated her when she was 6 months old, I knew that we were giving her back to the Lord, for Him to lead her, guide her and let her choose to follow Him in her own time. Many prayers have been prayed and the Lord’s hand has been over her life from the very beginning. I know He will continue to guide her and I can only pray that she will always seek and follow Him..never be ashamed of the gospel and never sway from that faith she has at this moment.
I am thrilled to know that one day she will see my Mawmaw..my Grannie Guinn, Kenny's grandmothers, and others I have longed for her to meet. I am thrilled that when they talk about mansions and streets of gold that she will have one of those and walk on those as she meets all the people she has learned about Sunday after Sunday.
We will meet with the preacher this week and hopefully schedule her baptism soon..she is one eager beaver about it..
Shouldn't we all be that excited to share what the Lord has done for us?! I think so..lesson learned from a 6 year old..
And finally..a verse I came across today for Brylee..my sweet baby girl..I pray this for you..and for you to realize just how special, loved and adored you are, not only by your Daddy and I, but by the King of King..Lord of Lords!!
"The King is enthralled by your beauty, Honor Him, for He is your Lord" ~Psalm 45:11

This has been a sad week in Scottsboro..a dear precious family lost their two month old baby this week. It was sudden, tragic and unforseen. However, our Father knew this would occur and knew that Sara Grace would spend some time here being loved by her wonderful parents and then join Him in Heaven. I simply can't imagine what they are going through or how they are feeling..but I pray that they feel God's unending grace heaped upon them now and in the days to come!
We have spent the day doing pretty much nothing..a few loads of clothes..playing with the kids and now watching ballgames. LSU dominated Tennessee.."Good old What???" HE HE..and Alabama is dominating Ole Miss..that means my hubby and my Daddy are two happy dudes..it is left to be said about Auburn..they are still playing as I type.
Kajae starts a new daycare Monday..and we are pretty darn excited. It is an in home daycare and he will literally be across the street from me! His babysitter is also Brylee's SS teacher and Brylee used to attend her daycare center, so she is pretty familiar with us. That always helps!
I am in total love with both my babies. We stay so busy these days..Monday, Tuesday and Thursday..Brylee is playing either soccer or softball..church on Wednesdays and ballgames on Friday..our week is just packed! Wanted to include some pictures of my kiddos since Kajae has yet to make the blog. One day I will do a post about his birth..just for documentation of course! About to head to the bed..Sunday morning comes early and their will be some very excited 3 year olds waiting on me in the morning!

Wowzers..I have so neglected this blog and I hate that! So much has happened since November..We moved to a new house while 5 months pregnant. (That wasn't fun, but we had some wonderful friends come and help us! I had a second child..Kenyatta Jabbar Hill II (Kajae), and Brylee graduated kindergarten. She is now in first grade and Kajae is 5 months old..time flies!!! She is so smart..got her first report card today and had all A's..and a 100 in math?! I know she doesn't get that from me at all!! Kajae..laughs, makes sounds, blows bubbles and is rolling over. He begins a new daycare next week..it will be an in home daycare and we are very excited about that! He is such a pleasant baby, sleeps in the bed by himself and pretty much all night. He lights up the room with his radiant smile and contagious laughter!
I am teaching a preschool class at church for Sunday School..and they are so much fun! I remember Brylee at 3 and I can't wait to see Kajae at that age! Brylee is in a class on Sunday morning and Sunday night where she is learning scriptures and doing Bible drill. We are thrilled about that! I can't wait to see what God has planned for her and her life! As long as she glorifies Him in all she does, I will be one proud mommy!
Kenyatta, numero uno, is the new head boys' basketball coach at EHS. I am so proud of him! This is something he has desired for a long time and put in his time as an assistant coach. People have asked me if I am ready to be a head coach's wife..and all I can say, is bring it on! I learned a long time ago, that a coach can't make everyone happy at the same time..there will be someone unhappy no matter what. All I can say is I know this man, and I know that he will have every player's best interest at heart at all times..So..yes, I can't wait for basketball to begin!
Okay..that is a rough catchup, and I promise to do better..there is sooo much I want to record and keep up with through the blog..so remind me to come back!

I am so excited to tell you about a sweet deal I have come across. Shutterfly is offering a deal where you blog about them and receive 50 free Christmas cards..how sweet is that????
We had the best Christmas cards last year! We used Shutterfly and received so many compliments on our cards. I simply set the camera to shoot and then shipped them to Shutterfly..in a few days they were back and ready to mail! It was so easy and they were sooooo nice. Here are a few things you can do on their site:
I am so excited to show you this site and hopefully introduce you to a new place to order your cards. Their work in the past has been extremely wonderful to me and to a lot of people I know who have used them. Last year, I had waited until the week of Christmas and I received my cards in time to mail out the day before Christmas. We made ours "New Year Cards". It was different, but worked just as well!
The possibilites are endless, and you don't have to just use them during the holidays. You can do birthday invitations, cards, thank you cards etc. Please go on over to Shutterfly and check out what you can create! Have fun and I hope you enjoy!
I almost forgot to mention, this year, I received a wonderful catalog with all that they offer. It was great to have the catalog in front of me, so I could circle exactly what I wanted for this season!I can't wait to order my cards and I love that they are offering this sweet deal!!! Merry Christmas Shutterfly!!!!

Today I am 8 weeks and 3 days pregnant..we have officially announced it on Facebook..but I wanted to do a blog to commemorate this special time. We have wanted to have another baby for a while now, but things just kept coming up..mainly (not coming out)..as in my snot! LOL..I started having issues with my sinuses and was just miserable most of the time..I stayed on antibiotics and could not get well. That resulted in sinus surgery in August 2009. I got a little better, but was still sick and had to have it again in March..this time it healed and everything seemed better. So, we decided to gquit taking birth control..and let God's timing happen. It worked and in September, we had a positive pregnancy test. I thought I might be, just because I started feeling super tired. I tested positive two days after my first missed period.
We feel extrememly blessed and do not take this blessing for granted. I fully understand this is a gift from God and we are super excited He is allowing us the opportunity to raise another child. Brylee and Baby #2 will be 6 years apart. Some may think that is a little crazy to have them so far apart, but once again, I believe God's timing is perfect and I know it will be just fine. I feel like we have had the opportunity to give Brylee our undivided attention in all her "firsts". She is excited and will be a great helper with this baby.
Please join us as we continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby!
