Spring Photo Sneak Peak

Last week I had the kids pictures taken. I wasn't sure how they did because once we got there I handed them off to the photographer and then walked out of site. I just checked the photographers blog and she had a sneak peak of the pics she took on that day. Jeanelle Carraway is the photographer and she is WONDERFUL!!! I've only seen one of the pics, but I'm just amazed that it's a good shot of all three kids....that rarely happens!! Check it out at Then click on her blog and the post for Saturday, March 28. My kiddos are the 5th ones from the top. Many many thanks to Brittany for referring me to Jeanelle!!

Updates to come!

Once again I've neglected my blog.....but not on purpose. My computer went won't even turn on. Andy has been so kind to let me use his work laptop, but unfortunately the times when I've had a few spare moments to blog he's either been working or he's been out of town. And to be honest, I get easily frustrated when I use his laptop. It's a smaller laptop which means the keypad is smaller.....hence lots of typos from me!! Oh well, until we decide what type of pc or laptop we want to get I'll just suck it up and use Andy's laptop. I don't have time to upload any pictures right now but I promise I will do that over the weekend. Until then, here's an update on what's been going on in the Cruthirds corner!!

(1) Ella is COMPLETELY pottey trained!!!! Okay, so she's been tee-teeing on the potty since last June - she started right before her 2nd birthday. I put her in panties last September and she's did GREAT!! However, she would not take care of her dirty business in the potty. She would just go to her room put on a pull-up (we still sleep in pull-ups at night) take care of her business and then come tell me to change her and put her panties back on. She threw such a fit when I tried to get her to poop on the potty that I just gave in and let her do things her way. She NEVER once had an accident.....we could go anywhere in panties. Then about 2 months ago she told me she needed to get a pull-up and go poop. I asked her why don't you try to go on the potty and she suprisingly said Okay! And that was it.....she's been pooping on the potty every since then. I have no regrets about letting her do things her way because she was so easy!!! And she's still been accident free!!!

(2) Brady lost his first tooth and has a second one loose!

(3) Andy celebrated his 34th birthday on Wednesday!

Have a GREAT weekend and check back soon for pictures!

Brady's Baptism

What a special day for our Brady and our family.....Brady was baptized this morning!! Andy and I are so proud of Brady and his decision to accept Jesus as his Saviour. Words cannot even begin to express the excitement and joy I about a proud Momma!! Although he's only 6, he truly understands the Sacrifice Jesus made for him and what it means to be saved! When Brady started talking to us about accepting Christ as his Saviour we were a little hesitant because we were afraid he just wasn't ready or that he was too young to understand. Oh, how we were so wrong....he completely gets it. I wish I could take all the credit for this, but I have to give praises to his wonderful sunday school teachers at FBC and all of his teachers at PPCA! Andy and I are so grateful that our children are able to attend a christian school where learning GOD's word is just as important as academics. He's surrounded by an awesome group of Godly men and women. I'm amazed at the scripture Brady has learned and that not only has he learned so much scripture but he can explain it as well. Thank you to all of our family and friends that were there to support Brady. I think there were about 17 of us up there for him....we definitely brought a crowd. A special thanks to Brady's teacher Ms. sweet of her to come and watch one of her students get baptized. Congratulations Brady....I'm so proud of you...I love You!

Getting ready....check out that precious smile!

Chillin' with Dad!
