Yay for Kent getting everything fixed up and the internet running. I'm so glad to be able to write a blog and it not take 10 minutes to type out a short paragraph. Three cheers for my hubby!! Speaking of my hubs, yesterday was his 28th birthday. He celebrated by putting together a desk. We did go out to eat at one of his favorite restaurants in the area, Rhinehart's. It was really good. Also, speaking of my hubby.. Monday when we had the movers here and we were moving in and unpacking, Kent was trying to hook up the dryer. The previous owners had taped around the dryer vent, so Kent was trying to take that off. He had his knife out and was cutting the tape when his hand slipped and his middle knuckle on his left hand was almost sliced off by the metal vent. He had to go to the ER and have three stitches put into his hand. Thankfully it didn't take long and he was able to get home fairly quickly. Also that same day we locked ourselves out of the house and had to call a locksmith. Talk about a good beginning!
I have pictures. But you will have to look pass the mess that is my house right now. Do enjoy!
I'm Emily. I'm a Christian. I'm 30 years old. I'm a wife to my soulmate, Kent. I'm a SAHM to my 3 beautiful children: Jon Kent-9, Zoey-8 and Nathan-5. I'm from a small southern town where we say ain't and y'all. I love my southern roots and wouldn't trade it for all the cream of wheat you've got. We currently hang our hats in South Carolina because of a job promotion my husband was given. So come along for the journey that is my life.
Kent is my wonderful husband of 10 years. In those 10 years he has provided for his family unselfishly. He is a wonderful daddy to our 3 small O'villers. He loves me despite my many flaws and I truly believe he sees me for who I am. I fully intend to spend every last second of my life with him.
Jon Kent is 8 years old. He is a 2nd grader now and I am beyond proud of what a great little boy he is becoming. He loves to learn and figure things out. Jon Kent is an amazing big brother. He is caring and compassionate. He likes to make friends and has really come out of his shell over the past year. Jon Kent loves playing basketball, football and soccer. He is a wonderful, compassionate, kind kid. He is truly a blessing to have as a son.
Zoey is 7 years old. She is my baby girl. My love that only a mother and daughter could have. She is my tomboy who likes sparkly things. Zoey is in 1st grade and she is a social butterfly. She doesn't meet a stranger and the more friends she has the better. Zoey loves to play with bugs, lizards and frogs. She also likes to play with her brothers and tell them what to do. Zoey loves singing and dancing. Anything to make someone smile. This past year she has really gotten into art and I am truly amazed at her ability to draw and color and bring out details that many would leave unnoticed. Zoey is our surprise blessing that I am continually grateful to God for.
Nathan is 5 years old. He is the baby and uses that fact to his advantage. He is a cuddlebug and a wrestler. He adores his big brother and makes it his mission to do everything that Jon Kent does. Nathan is a momma's boy and I wouldn't have it anyother way. His favorite pass times currently are playing with action figures, crewing on his "banket" (blanket) and getting as dirty as possible. Nathan marches to the beat of his own drummer. He is stubborn and strong willed, but doesn't like going to time out. He is a leader and I pray God can use him to lead others to Christ.
