4 Years Old

Colton Graham

 My Colton is 4 years old today! Where has the time gone? You were such a sweet baby but you sure did cry a lot and have some tummy issues...things that felt like would never end and now look at you!! You make me laugh all day long with your hilarious comments that you make. Your honestly is nice but can be a little too honest at times :) We sometimes think you are in a world of your own. You bring so much joy to our home and I am so proud of you. You love your big brother and you think your little brother is pretty special. I love hearing the three of you laugh and love to watch you guys wrestle. I'm sure the years to come will be crazy with you boys but I can't wait!! We pray for you daily to accept Jesus as your Savoir!! These four years have been amazing and I am so glad God blessed us with you right before Christmas!!! We love you sweet boy!!

I will do another post with all the party fun!!

My Coop loves him some basketball...its in his genes :) He is playing for Brighton again this year on a full court with 8 1/2 ft goals. He eats it up! I LOVE watching him play. I must admit I get into it alot, shocker...but it sometimes drives me crazy b/c I know more than the coach does. Anyways he loves it and has been blessed with pure talent from the Lord. Our first game went into triple OT...we ended up losing by 1 point! Yes I was sweating just a little bit...ha! Coop had 10 of our teams 13 points! Proud Mama right here!

Next game was very tough and the team we played was out of control I tried to calm myself multiple times but my flesh was coming out. Needless to say we lost but Coop had 5 of our 7 points! I am so proud of him and can't wait to watch him play the rest of the season!!

I love you Coop and am so proud of you and your bball skills :)

Pics to come soon. Hard to do that with the other 2.

Let's Go Cardinals!

Georgia On My Mind

Today is a very sad day at the Kenney house. Our Pastor and family left this morning to move back home to Georgia for him to be the pastor at their home church. I am truely excited for them but selfishly miss them tons already! Stephanie is one of my most dearest friends. We have made tons of memories these past four years! She is a true friend and also one that I have laughed with till I have cried. We had many adventures with all our kids along for the ride. When we met there were only 3 now there are 7!! :) Having all our kids the same ages has been so fun. My boys are sad that the Perdues are not in their classes anymore. Our first Sunday at Crosspointe was Pastor Jim's as they are just like family. Cooper is the one that really gets what is going on and it's been hard. Jake is his best bud!! He came home from AWANA last night saying that he was kinda lonely at church now because Jake is his best friend and he isn't gonna see him anymore. Tears! I pray for him! I am excited about taking trips down south to visit. Here is a picture of all the kiddos from Thanksgiving night. I am so thankful the Lord brought our two families together!! We love you Pastor Jim, Stephanie, Jake, Judd, Anna Kate, and Sadie!!!

Ages: 6, 6, 4, 3, 3, 1, 1

An Interesting Night with Caden

One evening Caden woke up weasing and struggling to breath. So we took him to the ER to find out that he had croupe. They gave him some steroids and then about a week later after a double ear infection as well he got a little better. Here are some pics of his first experience in the hospital and hopefully it will be his last.

Checking out his room..not too sure about it all.
Better in Daddy's lap
Watching some Sprout
1:30am he finally gave up just in time for the nurse to come in and wake him up :(

This past week was Cooper's fall break and Jon took off the whole week as well. We had plans to go out of town then Jon's car bit the dust so now we are back to just 1 car so we decided to just stay home and do fun things with the boys. I love doing things that we don't normally get to do with the boys and see the joy on their faces! Its worth it all!

Sunday we didn't go to church anywhere, it was very odd not being there but nice to have a break. We were going to go to the mall and then go get some lunch and head home for little man to take a nap. We showed up to the mall at 10 when we thought it opened. Well the mall doors were open but none of the stores open till noon on Sundays..who knew?!? So we let the boys play on the indoor playground that they had all to themselves. Next we were gonna head to Costco to look around...well I forgot my card so there we were standing in front of the store all ready then had to go back and get in the change of plans. We headed to CiCi's Pizza and the boys ate like 40 pieces of pizza then we went back to the mall and then suprised the boys and took them to see Cars 2 at the cheap movie. It was alot of fun and Caden slept through the whole thing. Next we headed out to look at houses. A favorite thing that Jon and I have always loved to do and now the boys enjoy it just as much as us!! We drive around and find new houses being built and go in and check them out.

Monday we went to lunch at a newer place and had a great time. That evening we headed to Grandad and CiCi's house for dinner and some fun with Aunt Sarah, Uncle Philip and Aunt Savannah.

Tuesday we hung out at home and did some yard work then ordered pizza for dinner got to eat on TV trays and watch a movie. After we put Caden to bed we brought the big boys matresses down to the living room and played the PS3 and played a couple board games then watched another movie! Late night then they got to sleep in the living room! So fun!!!

Wednesday was a nice rainy day at home with nothing to do but play and hangout with each other.

Thursday we had lunch with NiNi and Grandpa and then went to Redbox for a movie night.

Friday we went out to lunch followed by a visit to a new cupcake shop in town owned by some great folks at church and it was so yummy!! The boys loved theirs as well. We got home and put up a tent in the backyard. The big boys were going to camp for the first time! We ate hot dogs and then made smores and then we put baby to bed and the pup to bed and headed outside. Yes I did have the monitor in our tent in case Caden needed us :) It was a lot of fun and all worth it to hear the boys just giggle with pure joy. We made it till 4:30am and it was about 45 degrees outside so we decided to take them in so we all didnt end up sick when it was time for everyone to go back to work and school. They had a great time and so did I.

We ended our week by heading to CiCi and Aunt Sarah's birthday party. Uncle Daniel was in town and it was great to hang out with the whole family.

Many new memories were made this week and I love spending that much time with my best friend. I have the best husband in the world and he is an amazing father to our boys. I am so blessed!!!

One in a Million

I just finished doing a bible study by Priscilla Shirer called One in a Million and I learned alot! It takes you through your journey with the Lord in the wilderness then to the promise land. This is a list that was in the back of the book that I need to keep with me at all times...

These are some characteristics of a believer experiencing abundant life in Christ.
*Senses and acknowledges God's continual presence (Ps.139:7-10)
*Is led by the Spirit of God (Rom.8:14)

*Gives thanks in spite of difficult circumstances (Phil. 4:6)
*Counts suffering for Christ as a blessing (1 Peter 2:19-21)
*Displays divine power in weakness (2 Cor.12:10)
*Senses God's comfort and hope (2 Thes.2:16)
*Has confidence to draw near to God (Heb.7:25)
*Lives as an alien and stranger to this world (1 Pet. 2:11)
*Hears the voice of God (John 10:27)
*Discerns the guidance of God's Spirit (John 16:13)
*Believes God can supply her every need (Phil.4:13)
*Is open to receiving the gifts given by God's Spirit (1 Cor. 12:4-7)
*Recognizes & utilizes her spiritual gifts for the edification of Christ's body (1 Pet.4:10)
*Displays the fruit of God's Spirit in her daily living (Gal.5:22-23)
*Experiences consistent joy & peace (John 15:11)
*Recognizes & utilizes God's spiritual armor (Eph.6:10-18)
*Desires to know and do God's will (Jer.29:11)
*Expects that God is able to do more than she can ask or think (Eph.3:20)
*Anticipates seeing the miracles of God (Gal.3:5)
*Is content with what she has (Phil.4:12)
*Confesses sins & believes they are forgiven (1 John 1:9)
*Values connection with the body of Christ (Acts 2:46)
*Pursues unity in the body of Christ (Eph.4:2-6)

Hope these help refresh your mind of all that our gracious Lord has made available to His precious Children.

Baby Boy #4

We have added baby boy #4 to our family! 7 pounds 4 ounces of pure delight. He has adorable brown eyes and is so fluffy!
Fenway Kenney
We finally got our puppy Fenway on Friday and he is wonderful. After we had to put our dog down in June I have been trying to be patient to get another dog but I am a huge dog lover and I have really missed not having one at the house with me. We had Grizz for 7 years and its just weird not having him here. So Jon and I talked and wanted to get the boys a puppy for Christmas but the weekend we talked about it we found a litter that had just been born and so we just went ahead and got him now so the boys had their Christmas this weekend! Of course we will get them each something small and their Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents will spoil them at Christmas but Fenway is their big gift.

He has done so well adjusting and I am LOVING having him!! I cuddle him and am training him to be a momma's boy! He is so sweet and I am so thankful to have added him to our family. Of course it was another boy! I don't mind a bit!! I am now out numbered 5 to 1 and I think it's awesome!

I will add more pics but they are all on Jon's and I's phones.

Weekend with Grandma

This weekend my Aunt Marsha and Grandma came in town from KS to come watch the Air Show. My Grandma loves planes and so she had to come watch the Blue Angels. We had a great time with them and Jeremy and Brandi also came in town so our whole family was together. They all came out to watch the boys play soccer Saturday morning then we went to lunch and headed to the Air Show. After that we had everyone come to our house for dinner. Here are some pics from our day. I love the ones of the boys with their Great Grandma! She is 93 so its very special to me that my boys get to spend time with her!!

St.Louis Fun

My brother and his wife moved to St.Peters, MO, just outside of St.Louis back at the beginning of the year and we have been waiting to take a trip to visit them. We finally got to go and had a BLAST!!!! The boys love their Uncle JJ and Aunt Brandi so much and really enjoyed the time they got to spend with them.

We got in late Wednesday night and the boys were wound up, even Caden! So of course we put them straight to bed anyways and told them to sleep in in the morning, haha, if you don't know by now but my kids are crazy and wake up every morning at 6. Period. Kinda crazy but they do so Thursday morning in St.Louis they were up at 5:45!!! Ummm, don't think so go get back in bed! They were giggling and having a blast so we let them come out about 6:30, we didn't want to wake Uncle JJ and Aunt Brandi but they did wake the dog that woke them up :) Good birth control for them!

Thursday we got up and went to the Zoo it was so nice and free but oh so hot!! We had a good time and came back home for naps then that night we went to Incredible Pizza. We had so much fun. The boys got to race go carts and even won ribbons for first place. We were sure they were worn out from the heat and the playing but yet again Friday they were up at 6.

We got ready and headed out to Grants Farm Friday morning and it was really neat. Free again and the boys really enjoyed it. Coop got to pet a camel, donkey, and a goat. Pretty cool. Then we went to the Science Museum that afternoon and it was kinda over their heads but it was fun. Next we hit up the mall where Uncle JJ bought them milkshakes :) Then headed off to dinner where the boys didnt eat anything b/c of their milkshakes...but it was my FAVORITE resturant, Fuddruckers. I haven't had it since December 09' in NC. It was sooo yummy.

Of course we never got a family picture or a picture of the boys with Uncle JJ and Aunt Brandi. Why does this always happen? Oh well. 

Saturday we decided to head out a little early so we could eat lunch at Lamberts on the way home. The boys loved the rolls being thrown everywhere and we were safely back home by Saturday afternoon.

We had a great time and loved spending time with Jeremy and Brandi. Coop already has our next trip planned and he is ready to go, too bad school starts next week!
