Sunday Jer's youngest sister Shayla was in an accident. We are all so thankful she is alright. It was a miracle she got out unharmed. It was an emotional day for the family. It reminded me of how the Lord really does watch over us all. Shayla it just wasn't your time yet and we love you so much!

Mason bug is 2 1/2 now and he's been showing some interest in the potty. I thought I'd give it a try tonight. It turns out he just liked sitting on the potty. I have no clue if he understands what he's supposed to be doing or not. Even Brooklyn was helpful by sitting down first and going so he would know what to do. Uggg. Things were so much easier for me when I was potty training a girl.
Mason got up and then decided to sit down so many times last night. Not one time did he pee! Then he was messing around and actually spilled the pee on the floor so I just put everything on halt. I figure when he's ready, he'll let me know just like Brooklyn did.
Man I forgot how crazy potty training can be!

I even used the extra piece of wood to make a towel rack for our bathroom. I'm pretty proud of my really easy experiment.

Last night she was so excited to help me make dinner. We made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup over mashed potatoes. Its one of Jer's favorites and since he's been feeling a little low lately, we decided to surprise him.
Brooklyn was so cute! She helped peel the potatoes and some carrots, she stirred the chicken while it was cooking and dumped the potatoes in the pot to boil. She is turning out to be such a good helper. Maybe she'll grow up to become a chef one day.
Mason wanted to help so badly. This is him saying "Pweeez Mom?" How could I resist that face? He helped stir a little bit but it was just too hot and dangerous for him to do very much.
Here he is pouting since he felt a little left out. Poor little guy. Soon Mase, you'll be bigger soon enough.

Jer's call this morning was pretty tough to take. I guess we really didn't realize how much we both wanted this job and move. We aren't giving up though. It felt right so we are going to keep on applying and looking. Eventually.

While we were up there we decided to take the kids for a hike up to the Falls. We had a hard time finding the trail since some cabins had been built and the signs were taken down. We hiked up this really steep hill and realized it was a dead end. I'm so out of shape I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest. It was funny though. Soon a man who lived in one of the cabins stopped and showed us the way. The hike was hard but really nice. It was about 3/4 of a mile up hill over rocks and roots. I bet the hikers we passes thought we were crazy to take all our little ones up there. It was worth it though.
this is Mo, Cindy and Aunt Molly by the water fall.
Jer "tried" to fish but with all the rocks being thrown it was a lost cause. Ha ha.
We really had a great time with the woods, nature, fires, no TV, no phones and just family. The only thing missing was Jillian, Steve and Addison. I sure hope we can do it again. It was one of the best times I'd ever had.
Anyway~ Jer was going to help dig the grave by hand but by the time we got there it was just about finished.
Almost all the family was there. Ella's kids and grandkids and lots of great grandkids too. We were able to get reacquainted with so many family members. It was really nice to swap stories about Granny Ree. We were all sad but she has lived a great full life and she is better now.
Later on Jer and I took the kids to Granny's house. They saw the cows, sheep and chickens. Mason loved great grandpa's tractor!
This is Jer inside Granny's house. Don't ya just love the huge horns? ;o)
