Life's Little Instruction Book

While I was in the middle of purging things in our house I came across a book that was in the back of a drawer. Started flipping through it and thought this needs to be out to flip through and think about some of the things that you see in it. I thought I would share a few.

*Take lots of snapshots
*Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday.
*Slow Dance
*Smile a lot. It cost nothing and is beyond price
*Keep It Simple!!!!
*Become someones hero
*Marry only for love
*Count your blessings
*Call your Mother

Laynie putting on a concert

Laynie as everyone already knows loves all things Barbie and she watches all the movies and knows all the songs. Here is one of her favorties that she wanted to share with all of you. Without futher adiu Laynie Kovacs singing Together we dream the same dream from Barbie Diamond Castle. Gosh I love her.....

like father, like son

Mr. Tanner is usually a momma's boy but here recently thanks to hunting season coming up Tanner is all about hanging with his daddy and doing all things hunting. Watching the hunting channel and looking at hunting magazines. Well I guess Tanner likes hunting so much that when daddy is at work he likes to look at the magazines all by himself. He is growing up so fast and is too cute for words.

Being a Parent

Today some friends of ours is having a baby. It just got me thinking how lucky we are to have kids and how I felt the day they were both born. I started going through their baby books and I found this prayer that someone gave to me when Laynie was born and I thought I would share it. The Parent's Prayer
Dear God,
Thank you for my little one,
I know we will have lots of fun.
Help me to be firm and wise
and see things through my child's eyes.
Give me courage and patience too
so I'll know the right things to do.
Please show me what I need to know
so I can help my child grow.
Thank you for this life you've shared
trusting me to take great care.
Help me please to always see
the blessing you have given me!

Here is to all the parents out there. God made us very lucky people to get a chance to love our children and watch them grow up
