Well...It's Been A While!

I haven't had much time to blog lately but I wanted to share some recent pictures of my 'blessins'....Sarah Beth is walking now...all over the place. She'll have her first birthday next Friday. I can't believe it has been a year! Time has flown by SOOOOOO fast! She is absolutely precious...I am so thankful the Lord has allowed me to be her Mama!! Here are a few recent pictures of her...
As for Ben, well he had his shots last week to get ready for school...yes, he'll start Kindergarten in the fall. We actually go for registration tomorrow. He is still loving preschool and has started practicing for teeball. He is full of life! Here he is in the tree he was trying to climb on a recent fishing trip with his Daddy! He is my BEN!!

As for Andrew, he stays busy! Between studying and projects for school, and practicing buddy ball...he never stops. He is getting to be such a big boy. He loves to be outdoors, especially fishing with Daddy. It's a good thing God blessed me with a girl because the boys leave me in a heartbeat when their Daddy is going somewhere....who knows...Sarah Beth may be the same way. She does have her Daddy wrapped!!

With three kids, there is hardly a spare moment! I couldn't do it without the wonderful man in my life. God has given me the best husband in the world! He is my best friend and I love him more than words can say!
A few more pics to share...

A few more snapshots!!

Here are a few more sweet snapshots of Sarah Beth and Ben...Ben is a character all of his own! Here he is as Mr. Potato Head...LOL!!

And here is Sarah Beth in one of her Christmas presents...a new cozy coupe...(we had one with the boys but it was time for a new, pretty edition!!!)


Sarah Beth has brought such joy to all our lives. The boys just love on her constantly...although she is starting to push them away some and shake her head NO at them. She was nine months old on Saturday (the 23rd) and I just found her third tooth on that day. She got the first two at 5 1/2 this one has been a long time coming. She is crawling everywhere and is just an angel with her sweet smile. She definitely has one parent wrapped...can you tell??

And she waves....
What can I say...they all three have both of us wrapped!! Thank you Lord for my precious children. We go today for Sarah Beth's 9 month check-up. I am anxious to see how much she has grown!!

I'm Back....

I know it has been forever since I posted to my is just BUSY! So, I guess I'll just start with recent happenings in the Lofton family. Last night Andrew played his first peewee basketball game. He did very good for his first time...but boy was he tired. They played their first game at 8:30 and then their second at 9:00. It was 9:30 before we were able to leave the school. So he was in bed at least an hour past his bed time. He was so cute!!

In case you didn't know, that is him in the green! He looks like Popa (my daddy)...don't you think???

Homecoming 2009 - Go Bears!

It is so hard to believe that it has been 10 years since I graduated high school. Tonight is homecoming at West Lincoln to honor the classes of "9". (I graduated in 1999)...It is wonderful to be working back here at "home". The kids enjoyed a wonderful pep rally this morning. Andrew was familiar with it...but Ben said it was way too loud. Here are some pictures of them...

Earlier this week, for costume day, Courtney wore an "OLD" costume. She was an old lady looking for her dog...who happened to be stuck in her rear....the kids loved it so much that she had to come back to the pep rally today...

Here is a picture of the cheerleaders...

And I can't post without adding a picture of my sweet baby girl. This was made a couple of days ago at breakfast...she is now 6 months old and has two teeth. I found them last Wednesday night during church :)

Pictures at Church

We finally got around to taking another family photo at church Sunday. I have a couple of snap shots of Ben and Sarah Beth too. As you can see, Ben is being his silly self! Sarah Beth is truly a bundle of joy! I don't know what we ever did without her.

Labor Day Fun!

I often wonder why holidays and weekends seem to go by so fast when regular work days sometimes drag. This weekend did FLY by...I did a workshop for teachers Friday night and I guess that probably had something to do with it!

Yesterday, Sarah Beth and I woke up before the "guys" I thought it would be the perfect time for us to get the grocery shopping done. She cooed and talked the entire time in Wal-Mart. I am so glad she is a good shopper. The boys...well...let me just say it...THEY HATE SHOPPING! We took our time and then stopped by and got breakfast for our "guys" at McDonald's before heading home. Roger unloaded the groceries and help me put them away and then we started packing for the lake. We decided to take the boys for a little outdoor fun. Nathan and Courtney (my brother and sister-in-law) along with another couple from our church were camping there. We arrived and enjoyed some grilled hamburgers and took a bike ride. We then headed for the beach. The boys were so excited. Roger took them for a swim while Sarah Beth and I stayed put on the shore...she was actually taking a little nap at the time.

My brother borrowed a jet ski from a friend of his to use for the weekend. Everyone enjoyed taking it for a spin. Roger took the boys for a few laps...they loved it. Then we enjoyed a lap together. Here are a couple of pictures...

The kids were all whooped by the days end. We didn't have trouble getting them or ourselves to sleep last night. We really had a lot of fun! Maybe one day we'll get a camper and start "getting away" more often. It is so nice to just enjoy each other's company...without the computer and tv and phones to get in the way. I have pictures of the kids...I'll post those a little later! Have a great Tuesday!

Here's one of Sarah Beth...
