Halloween 2009

My sister started having Halloween parties a few years ago. It has become one of our favorite times of the year spending time as a family. We all get dressed up and the adults make a "Haunted House" for the kids.

Kendall was the 1st to enter the haunted house !!

Joey left the haunted house thinking he was safe but wait !!! There was someone waiting for him !!

Shelby was screaming as she left the house to meet the scary man waiting for her !!

This are my nieces Storme, Tara, Kara & Brianna as they ran out of the scary house !!

My niece Jacee was "Marilyn Monroe" for the night & her boyfriend was just scary looking !!

Can you hear me now ???

We finally gave in and let Shelby get a cell phone. She has been begging us for months and although she is a bit young, she is trying so hard to show us she is responsible. She does her chores everyday with out any complaints.

Matt & Britanee were here when we decided to give Shelby the phone. I sent Shelby to go check the mail. She gave me a crazy look since itt was 8:15pm but did it anyway. When she was gone I put the phone under her hoody on the couch where she was sitting.

When she came in the house Britanee called her cell phone . We all heard the phone ring and everyone was looking around and Mike asked is someone going to answer their phone ? I looked at Brit and she looked at me and Shelby said well it isn't me cause I don't have a phone. We all kinda laughed and then Brit called the phone again. This time Shelby found it , looked at the caller id and then threw the phone at Britanee. We all looked at her in shock because she is crazy. She said it said Britanee so it must be her phone. I told her Nerd, Britanee isn't calling herself !!
So then Shelby answered the phone and Brit said, Shelby you just answered you own phone. She was so excited and gave Mike & I huge hugs !! We will never forget the look on her face !! It was priceless !!

Madison's 3 year Angelversary

Today is 3 years that Madison joined her brother & sister in Heaven. I think about her all the time. I wonder if Aubrey acts like her or if they would look alike. I wonder if she would love music like Aubrey or love to draw like Shelby.

This is the only picture I have of my mom with me & my daughter. Mady was such a feisty little 10 oz baby. She was the most active in my tummy while I was pregnant with the triplets.

Mady fought hard and went through a long battle including heart surgery in the 3 days she lived.

Mommy & Daddy will love you forever Mady !! We miss you everyday !!

Forever with us ..........

After all the babies passed away Mike & I decided to get a tattoo in memory of them. Mike got his done the day before their funeral and I love it. I love the angel wings and I love how the boy angel is passing a halo to the girl angel which is how I pictured Conner doing to Madison. I love seeing their names and the days they went to heaven.

I wasn't sure how I wanted to do my tattoo so I didn't get mine until after Aubrey was born. I decided to get the 2 identical flowersto honor Logan-Makenna & Madison since they were identical babies and then I got a dragon fly to honor Conner. Aubrey has always been my little ladybug so I got that to honor her with her siblings because I feel like she was our blessing after they went to heaven.


Conner's 3 year Angelversary

3 years ago today our little Conner Robert Joseph Koval went to be with Jesus in heaven. Although I miss him greatly I know he watches over our family.

Mommy loves you forever Conner !!!

You will always be Daddy's little man sweet baby boy !!!

Happy Birthday Babies !!!

Little Children

Little Children so full of life
So many plans so little time
Such tiny hearts, such tiny bodies
You made such an impact on so many lives
As we held you when you passed,
our hearts filled with sorrow like an hour glass
We will not stay sad, for you deserve better than that
You will be missed and that you can bet
But little children .... we have no regrets !!!

~love~ Mommy & Daddy

This was the poem Mike wrote for the programs at the babies funeral. I thought it was beatiful and wanted to share it .............

Today Conner, Madison & Logan-Makenna would have turned 3 !! I can't believe it !! This morning Mike decided to stay home with me cause he knew it was going to be a difficult day. We got the girls to school and then went to the cementary to put balloons on their grave. It seems like everytime I go there are new babies around them. It is so sad to know those parents are hurting like us. The pain never goes away. When we had the babies funeral we played Casting Crowns " Praise you in this storm" and that song has always had special meaning to us. In fact Shelby calls it "Maddy & Conner's song". This morning when I went to drop Shelby off I turned on the car and that song was on !! After we left the cementary we went to Denny's to have breakfast. Mike said the prayer before we ate and thanked God for all the blessings and told him thanks for giving us the little time we had with Maddy & Conner and right after he said AMEN that same song came on over the speakers in the restraunt. It was like God was letting us know that he has our babies and they are doing fine with him. Mike & I both got teary eyed listening to it. God is so amazing and we are truly blessed !!!

Astros Game .........

Mike & I went on a double date to the Astros game with our friends Jonathan & Crystal on September 11th. It was the 1st time that the Astros actually won a game we were at. They beat the Pirates 9-1. Crystal & I watched most of the game but then the photobug bit us so we were off to take pictures. These are just a few from that night. Sorry for the short post but it has been a busy week. ....................

I love this man !!

I honestly have the best husband in the entire world !! This man is my rock. He has stood by my side through good and bad times and the many mood swings in between. I know I don't tell him enough how much he truly means to me and how much I appericate him ALWAYS being there for me.


I love you more than words can express. You are my soul mate and my total lobster. I adore you and thank you so much for ALWAYS being there when I need you. Thank you for making me laugh when I'm being such a grouch and never taking me or my crazy attitude to heart. You are an amazing man and I love you so very much !!

Donnie Married ????

My youngest brother Donnie is in the Army. He is currently stationed in Afgastian ( spelled wrong I'm sure) . He is home on a 2 week leave and suprised us with news that he is getting married !! Yes my baby brother who I can't imagine being older than 3 is going to be someone's husband !! I know that he's 21 and has been serving in our military for 3 years but it doesn't seem like he is old enough to get married. September 6, 2009 he will marry Kristen in Las Vegas. I'm so happy for them and I hope they have a wonderful marriage.

Congratulations and I love you guys !!!

Road Trip with Gramme ....

Over the weekend Shelby and my nieces Jacee, Kendall & Storme went on a road trip with my Mom . They went to Hondo to visit my brother Weston. Can you imagine going on a 4 hour trip with 4 girls between the ages of 10 - 15 ?? Those girls are CRAZY !!! Along the way they stopped by the Sam Houston Monument and took some pictures. Of course each girl had to pose with the statue but here's a shot of all the girls together.

I have no idea where else they stopped by it looked like a little store that had a great porch swing they all climbed on and took more pictures. They didn't get home until after 10:00pm that day but I know they had a great time with Gramme !!!
