can i tell you how happy he makes me?

last night was one of my favorite moments of being a mom. don't get me wrong-great things happen everyday that make me happy and so thankful to have these 3 boys but last night ranked up there really high. kevin and i have had to divide up for baseball this season because he is coaching jack's tee ball team, so he always goes with jack and since their games are often at the same time i always go with tag. while playing second, tag made a great play and tagged a guy out that looked miraculous to his mother who really hates the thoughts of balls flying at me, especially with the intent of catching and moving quickly soon after. (he didn't get his talent in the area from me:)) he also pitched an inning and struck 3 hitters out, allowing no runs in. and while those were great, here was what really made my night. first up to bat, my little hitter hit the first ball out far enough to score a HOME RUN! it was amazing!! I was screaming and yelling so loud because i was so excited for him and guess what? as soon as he came off the field, everyone was trying to congratulate him and he came right to me! It made my heart so, so, so happy! thank you tag for still thinking i'm important!

my other boy!

Lots of people have asked me about my blogspot called Carrie and boys- they question how I included Kevin in that and I quickly have responded that he is one of my boys too. I have been so blessed to have 3 sons with this guy but he is my first and foremost boy!!
We have been together for a long time and I am thankful for him every single day! He has and is becoming exactly who His Heavenly Father wants him to be. He provides for our family and would do anything to help us have our needs met.  He is a great Dad! Our boys love him and are learning so much from him. He recently got a calling at church that requires him being away from us and man, do I realize all he does, especially when he is gone. I am so thankful he is willing to serve and does it with a really big heart! He loves me- I sure do know that, because he shows me! He doesn't tell me with flowers or jewelry but he tells me by speaking kind to me and cleaning my bathroom, if needed ;) I'll take that anyday! He is my best friend and listens to me whenever I need him to, sometimes even when I am not talking.
Thanks to heaven for seeing what I needed before I new what I needed!

MAY 21

So when you live at 9,500 ft. this is what you wake up to on May 21! Can you believe it? I know I should not complain given the situation all over the country but I just had to let you know. This is my beautiful backyard. 
(that needs a lot of work I see, 
now that the snow has melted) 
Come visit me in Colorado- summers can"t be beat!!
