Wagon rides, deer and other mischief

Monday, November 10, 2008

Well first of all everyday is an adventure here in the Cokenour home! The other night I put Caleb to bed and he was not very happy about that. So I had the monitor near me and had it turned down so I could see the lights and see if he was still crying. The lights were flashing for a long time so I decided to turn it up and see what the damage was. I heard a whole lot of banging and not a whole lot of crying so I went to check on him and this is what I found...

Yea that would be the monitor. I think Lindsay is right, I may have a long road ahead of me...sigh...:-)

Saturday we went out to Millsap to viisit family and so DanE could hunt. While he was gone I watched Payton and Gracie and we took Caleb and Gracie out in the wagon. Here are a few cute pics...

Last but not least, DanE killed a 10 point buck! He also killed a doe. (which has a really sad story to go with it that I will spare you the tears I cried!) He dropped them off to get processed and soon we will feast on the deer jerky, backstrap, chili, and whatever else you can make with deer. Here are a couple pics!

Mystery scratches...

Thursday, November 6, 2008

When I went to get Caleb from his bed this morning I noticed there were some scratches on his crib that I have never noticed before. I started looking a little closser trying to figure out what in the world was going on when I noticed something very interesting. I noticed there was a distinct two line pattern. I tried to think of what could make this pattern then it all came to me. Caleb has two teeth on the bottom row and he has been pulling up on things in the living room. But I have never seen him pull up on his crib and succeed. I had to investigate. When he was about to wake up from his first nap today I went in ready with my camera. This is what I found.....he is eating his crib! Now Caleb is big for his age and loves to eat and I am pretty sure that if I dont find a way to stop the madness his beautiful crib will soon be toothpicks! Hahaha! What should I do?!?!

History and Sovereignty

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

"1Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves." Romans 13:1-2

Whether you voted for Obama or you voted against him, tonight we as a country have made history. Tonight we can mourn and be disappointed but as of tomorrow, as Christians we have a choice to make. We have to choose to respect, pray for, and submit to his authority. It is commanded by God. God has all authority in all the earth, and he chooses to whom he bestows authority in the earth. Please take some time and pray for Obama and his family, for now they face the challenge that can only be overcome with the guidance of our Lord.

When I say pray for the guidance, I also say pray for protection. A short 55 years ago Africans were considered separate but equal. A mere 44 years ago African Americans were given the right to vote. There are many African Americans that voted in this election that endured the hardships that came with separate schools, water fountains, separated buses, and senseless violence and much more. There are still people today who think that that is the America that we need to have today. Ignorant as that may be, people are blind. Pray for protection for the Obama's from these people that may scheme to harm and destroy. Now November 4, 2008 we have seen a complete 180 degree turn from the slavery that plagued our country and ended in 1865. Pray. Pray. Pray. God is good all the time and His ways are not our ways. He has a master plan and our faith in Him and his sovereignty will get us through.

Halloween time!

Monday, November 3, 2008

Our Halloween started when I got ti watch Kaddliac my nephew. I got to dress him up for a fall fest at my parents church. Victoria and sherry came and picked him up and Victoria lokked great! She was a cute little flapper! What a neat night! With DanE's job our options were limited. We wanted to go somewhere close to his work so that we could enjoy the night as a family. I got Caleb all dressed up and drove to meet DanE at his work. When we got there he wanted to take him around and show him off to some of the people that he knows. We dressed him up as a sock money and he was the cutest little sock monkey ever! We lef this work when he got off and went to meet Grammy and Pappy at the Clark Gardens. It was such a sweet little place! If you have never been there you should take a trip. The garden is beautiful and if you have little ones they have a new train station with model trains that travel around a model town of Mineral Wells back in its prime! It was so neat! Afterwards we went to El Paseo's to eat and we gave Caleb his first sucker! He was obsessed! After a few minutes he dropped in on the floor and you would have thought that the sky just fell on him! So sad but it was great! Here a few pics of our fun night!
