(the card is just an example of one of the many beautiful cards they have!)
This is my site... The link above. I saw some Christmas Cards from Shutterfly in the mail. I checked them out online and was amazed. I love the selection, the vivid colors and the ability to put more than just one perfect picture :) I would show you my card I have chosen and have already edited... But, I want it to be a surprise. I just bought over a hundred 4x6's through them and made my first photo book!!! It's for the boys for Christmas! I am so excited!! I love using Shutterfly and how simple it is to find your way around the site. I want to order plenty of cards for all my friends and family.. To all my fellow bloggers, check my Facebook.. I have a link to share for Shutterfly!! My only regret with Shutterfly's Christmas cards is that I didn't discover them last year! I can't wait to show off the final product, all the personalizing I was able to do to them and all the great card ideas they had for me to choose from.. Now that I have found my perfect card, what about you!!!

Daddy, We love and miss you so much. I am trying to call you on my Buzz Lightyear phone but you won't answer. I guess you are busy at work. Mommy showed me pictures of you on the computer. Your clothes matched everyone's! I keep asking Mommy if you are coming home now. She says we get to come see you! I can't wait. I miss playing with you. Blake is okay to play with but you are lots of fun. Mommy won't let me ride on her back, she says it hurts. Can I ride on yours when you get home. I need you to fix some things too when you get back. Mommy needs to give me more milk. Blakey needs to stop playing with my toys. And I should be able to eat candy all the time. Just fix those things and life will be good. Oh, and make Blakey stop drooling. Thank you, Daddy. Oh, and Mommy lets me eat a kiss a day. Until we see you. But I got to them and ate 5 days worth. In 2 days I will get another "Kiss from Daddy." If these kisses are from you as Mommy says, can you tell her to let me eat them all?? I love you, Daddy. Oh, Blakey and Mommy do too. Have fun!

I have not been able to pick up my military ID, so I do not consider myself an Army wife yet :) But Jonathan is gone, and has been for going on 3 weeks now. I am doing well with this :) The kids are helping, my constant desire to shake some sense into Jonny and spank Blake until he doesn't touch another breakable item- well it keeps me busy :) Jonathan has sent 4 letters so far, it's better than when we were dating. He also gave a card to Steph to give to me, so I can count that too. I wrote him and told him to stay there forever if it means I can keep getting letters and cards. I need to frame them :) As proof that miracles do happen. He is doing all kinds of neat things, jumping off of high places, enduring obstacle courses, smelling in the scents of the gas chamber. Oh and sleeping outdoors. I have faced some basic training myself- 3 stage bedtime obstacle- 1. get Jonny to bed 2. get him to stay there 3. kick him out of my bed. Then there's the diaper chamber- It's the smell from a child you can smell across the room and you begin to gag as you close in on the little guy. There's also the BATHROOM. Where one child poops in the tub, the other somehow FLIPS out of the tub, and I, Mommy, am attempting to gain some sense of order. I can't imagine being a single mom. Kudos to you women who do it everyday- for years on end. My heart goes out to you. So in the midst of organizing life, unpacking, and waiting for the blessed phone call.. I say to myself- Thank you God.. For my Bathroom moments- great stories and healthy active children. For my diaper moments- hey, they're regular :) For my bed time moments- I have a child who loves his mommy so much. And for my husband's basic training moments- I thank God for a man who is willing to do all he can to support his family and honor his country as well. I love my "new" life and all the hidden blessings it brings!

Okay, so I LOVE hulu.com.. It is the shiznit. I got on today and noticed my queue had 23 videos in it. I am all like, WOW, it hasn't been that long since I have been on here. Come to find out SEASON ONE OF UGLY BETTY is in MY queue!!! I took a picture of my sheer excitement and surprise and decided to let the world know.. Ugly Betty is it and I can't wait to see all the episodes :) I love America Ferrera :) I want to look like her when I grow up lol..

That's not a typo in the title, to Jonny, that is Baby Bake, or Bakey. Our baby of the family came to meet all of us November 4, 2009. He is almost 1 and I am still wondering where the time went. Blakey loves to smile and makes others follow into the grin look. He loves to crawl and cruise around furniture. He will take a few steps and will stand all alone. He loves to hear his Blakey Song and enjoys being held. He can be a risk taker (he climbs the stairs alone) and loves to eat- EVERYTHING. He is Mama's baby, Blakey poo, and the Blakeanator :)
Jonathan Keith Robbins Jr. born December 19, 2007. Our first born and the one who taught us all about babies and being new parents. Our baby is almost 3 now. He is so full of life and enjoys playtime. He loves to tease his daddy and love on his mommy. He uses his manners and prays. He loves to think everything is "his" and "mine." He gives kisses and yet can be rough. He loves to keep his hands clean while eating and yet play in dirt. He can ask so many questions and yet have nothing to say. I love my big boy, my baby, bubba- My Jonny.

My husband's wonderful camera skills..
Our gorilla Jonny and monkey Blake
My father in law :)
Jonny and Dadu making delicious biscuits :)
We traveled to Ohio on Friday to spend some time with my in laws. They got a new camper and we just had to see it :) Actually, we were very excited to see them. Especially Jonny. He whined for Bunchen the last few minutes. Her name is Nana, but she tells the grandkids- I love you BIG BUNCHES. So Jonny named her Bunchen. lol Paul became "Dadu Paul" over the weekend and it is a hit and miss of when he addresses him that way :) Today was our Robbins family reunion. We were there for most of it and enjoyed ourselves. We left there and went to see Grandpa and Grandma Covert.. My batteries on the camera died or I would have taken pictures of our special people in Mt. Orab :) The reunion has a theme every year, and this year it was safari. The boys dressed up and got gift cards for their participation :) Yay, diapers :) Jonny got a lot of candy ( a mini Halloween if you ask me) and Jon and I stunk so bad at corn hole it was embarrassing. Even for family to see. :( Made it to the final 3 in a water balloon toss and Jonny enjoyed wayy too many m&m's :) Soooo much fun :)

Me and lil Daniel :)
I totally beat Jon and Jonny :) Oh yeah... DOMINATION!!
Jonny... LOVING IT!!We met up with Jonathan's cousin, Daniel, and went to the mall and bowling... Here's some pictures :) We had so much fun and Jonny was hilarious :) He loved bowling and wanted to go when it wasn't even his turn. And if Blake was put down, he wanted to crawl towards the pins... We had a blast.. And I have come to the conclusion that all cheese fries are only the bomb diggity at the bowling alleys :))
Jonathan Keith - 2 years
Blake Alexander- 9 months
Granny C and Blakey
Granny C and JonnyWell, I think it has been way too long since I have even blogged... Sad to say.. I have been looking at others blogs and decided I should get back into it. So here I am... I haven't posted since I was pregnant with Blake and now he is almost 10 months old... WOW... Our life is semi-normal right now. We live in Elizabethtown, KY now and we love it down here. Love our friends and our church and so on and so on.. Our boys are growing well :) Jonny will be 3 in December and Blake will be 1 in November. Jonathan leaves in October for basic and it has just hit me 2 days ago... We have had some wonderful visitors this past month.. I just realized that it is Sept. 1st!!! Jon and Nella and Katelynn Thompson came down one weekend, we met lil Daniel in Louisville the next, my bio mom came down the next, and my mom and dad came last weekend :) Needless to say it has been a busy month.. Now it is September... Time to make invites for Blake's party, take family pictures, go to our family reunion, enjoy church services, do MOPS, walk in the Walk for Life, and play dates :) Time flies so fast... God help me to cherish every moment and let the petty stuff pass :) God bless and happy September!!
