So, Chris ran to get the mail today....and he just barely called me at work...
"JMU is pleased to announce that CHRISTOPHER HAL JEPPSON has been extended a seat in the Aug 2010 PA School! CONGRATS!"
Yes- it's our time to finish and finish hard....and then move on.
I am sitting here at work crying as I write this! THANK YOU to all family and friends! YOU helped us to make this possible! Thank you for all your fasting, prayers, ect..... Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
You have to know that Ethan and Alexis have been saying in their prayers..."Please Heavenly Father, please bless daddy to get into PA school so we can fly to Utah to visit Grandma and Grandpa." If one forgets, the other sternly reminds him/her that they forgot to pray for daddy's pa school! IT'S the cutest thing!

It's Official!

Hunter is 21lbs even and is in the 95% for weight! HAHAHAH! Poor kid got 5 shots today! What a trooper!
Ethan and Alexis held on to Mam-Maw's leg for about 5 whole minutes when she got here, and chanted her name like she scored the winning point on their team!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow and the entire house smells like yummy pumkin!
My dad killed a bambi and so we have lots of deer meat....yummy! We love it and use it in tons of recipes! THANK YOU DAD!!
I love my family!

Hunter 6 months...Ethan 5 1/2 Years....

Hunter....I can't believe that you are already 6 months old today. It seems like just yesterday, you were kicking my ribs and I was up and down to the bathroom half the night! Now look at you....big boy with a smile so wide- almost ear to ear. Your giggle makes me laugh and you love to spit and taste new foods....peas, squash, sweet potatoes, and green beans, oh my!!! You love your mommy and hold on to her clothes tightly!!! You babble and are very curious looking all around your surroundings! You love your daddy and sister and brother too! Alexis can make you laugh at just about anything. She loves you and showers you with hugs and kisses all the time. Ethan loves to hold you and play piano with you. As you can sit up now for short periods of time, you enjoy playing on the floor and reading books....they taste yummy....and are getting marked up with all your wetness! :) You are loved and are such a huge blessing to your family!
Ethan, what a great example and such a good young boy you are turning into. You are such a big big help to mommy....helping in the kitchen with setting the table, cooking, mixing things together, playing train with Alexis: coloring, puzzles, school, drawing, reading short books. You know all your sight words...and are a great little reader these days! Mommy and daddy are SO proud of you. We are very blessed you are in our family.
Alexis, mommy is proud of you too! You are such a huge helper...always praying for Hunter, Ethan and daddy. You think of others before you think of yourself, giving Ethan your flashlight so he won't be scared! You are an example to all of us! I love you, sis!
It brings tears to my eyes to think of how big my kids are and that they are growing and growing! I love being their mommy and hope and pray everyday that I can teach them like Heavenly Father teaches all of us! I fall short, but I can say that nothing brings me more pure joy than to be with my husband and kids! I love you, family, extended and all!

Dandilion Wishes....

So, you have to know that Alexis absolutely loves Monopoly JR. She is really good at it too. Chris as beaten her a time or two...but I have yet to win! Silly girl, I don't know how she does it! It's all in the rolls she gets and the houses she decides to buy with the option for double rent, which I usually land on her property and the I have to pay her tons of $!!! The girl is learning fast...that's all I can say. Well, today we are sitting here...I just picked her up from school. They went to the firestation and had a great time. She was asking me to play a game....she goes over and gets Monopoly JR. Then she says to me...
Mommy, I wish you would win some time ....mommy...don't worry, that'll be my next wish on a dandilion flower!
OK, I said! :)
What a cute thing....she reminds me of my sister growing up. Christina would always say the funniest things!!! I love you Alexis....don't worry, I'll win Monopoly someday!!! :)

Enjoy the pics....

Chris ready for his PA interview, which went really well...we are waiting to hear and will keep you updated! Alexis and the outfit my sister bought her for her birthday! She loves it and wears this sweatshirt everytime she sees it hanging in her closet.

Hunter.....5 months....almost sitting up on his own now....

My 'Uncle Louis'. He's actually my great uncle...but I've called him uncle louis since I was little! Visits with him are fun! He owns property with mature trees. Last time we visited we played in the leaves and the kids had fun!!!

Happy Halloween....

This halloween was really really fun! The kids were able to dress up a few times between church's trunk or treat, actually halloween night, and school halloween party! Ethan was a vampire, Alexis was a princess, and Hunter was a pumpkin!!! Enjoy the pics....

Poor sleeping pumpkin....he has croup! So, we dressed up in the house!

Alexis was such a beautiful snow princess....

Happy baby Hunter!

Ethan loved the scary, crazy teeth his Aunt Vicki sent him! Thank you!

Ah! Here they all all their cuteness!!!
