Well, where is everyone? I know I haven't been here either, but I have a valid excuse!!! :) We've been doing the move thing. Which I exhaustedly say is partially done. We have most everything from the Garland house, just a few non-essentials to pick up sometime or another. And cleaning to do and a garage sale to have...Yeah!

As for the new house, it is coming along. The school building is a complete wreck, but the house is coming together, slowly but surely. I am proud to say that the boys bathroom, the kitchen and the utility room are mostly complete. Woo-hoe! As for the other rooms, well they are there...They are messy...And they are tiring me out! Ha! Between chasing the boys and trying to clean up/clean out/put away my days are certainly filled.

On another note, we tried a new church last Wednesday. Ferris Avenue Baptist Church in Waxahachie. It is a huge church...500+ attending on Sundays...They have 3 Sunday morning services...These are the cons in my view...I don't like big things, I want to be known not a number...But a pro...A big pro...They have an extremely active children's dept. This is awesome in my perspective. I am looking into this as a great place for the boys. They are my main concern. Although I will truly miss Brother Rial...He is so awesome. But I can get his sermons on CD...A good thing for me! We went to Sunday school and church in Garland last Sunday and it was very hard. We got up at 6:30 and were still 15 minutes late. The "only an hour drive" was much more than I imagined. :) One thing I don't like about this church is it doesn't offer Sunday evening services. I don't know for sure yet, I plan to attend a few more times to see what I think. Maybe try some of the other churches as well. We will find a home I know, and soon too. Kutter loves going to "God's House" as he has began to call it and be with the kids. Kaden not so much...But he is at that "separation from mommy is killing me" stage. :)

Kaden is a great kid, a little freaked out by all this traveling, transition and uproar we are having, but a wonderful baby. He is getting so big lately and such a nut. He has started making this popping noise with his mouth. And he purses his lips and says "oooh". It is funny. Still big loud kid at the crack of dawn...Sometimes we would like to give him away around 6am or so. Any takers? :) He is really funny and so much "MY" baby...Ha! Not that I don't love that! ;) He plays great all by himself, sitting where ever I plop him, until I leave the room. He hates that...And even worse to be all alone in a room. That is like the devil or something.

Kutter bug has been taking it all in stride I think. We have become a little more dependent on the binky and the potty is a not so much anymore. But I am not pushing, he will get it when he gets it. With the move and all, I know he is more upset than he is showing. He is loving his new house and really likes to eat breakfast outside. We ususally take our "cerdal" to the back porch. He is a great kid...

Well it looks like the reunion is set for next year. That is great to hear. I can't wait! A whole week with the entire Frazier clan...Well some of us may be completely bald before it is all over. hahaha! Just kidding, I think it is great! I can't wait, everyone keep your eyes open for anouncements and information.

Here is a note, BJ's music artists will be putting on a show in Garland on Friday Sept 1st...More details to follow soon as I am updated. I know that Liz Arnold (, Crystal Lynn ( and Scott Whitaker ( will be there, I am not sure who else.
Well I have neglected the piles for long enough...So here I go again...And again...And again! :)

Oh, what a day! I have spent most of the day cleaning out the front porch. It is amazing the amount of crap that has come out of that one little area. I am truly shocked! The house looks like a tornado went through it. There is a huge pile in the living room waiting ot be loaded into the truck tommorrow after church for the boys and I to haul to Wax. Then there is a huge pile in the office (like the office needs any more piles) :) for me to freecycle or craig's list. Then there is a huge pile in the classroom that I am sorting and reboxing, etc...

I have posted pics for you guys to see on the Kodak Easy Share system. You just log in and you can view the latest albums. Sorry I haven't been on top of sending out pics. I just get busy and since I can only send one at a time to mom and dad, it takes a while. But they are there for you to view...the kids are so big Kaden will be 7 months old next week. Can you believe that?

Bug is such a nut, he has been in Heaven today pulling out toys and strowing them everywhere. It has been fun let me tell ya!

All for now I to all...we-

You know sadly I am beginning to look forward to the summers end...

I know that is awful!

With moving, packing, teaching, raising boys, etc...I am completely worn out these days. I find myself fighting sleep during the day and not being able to fall asleep at night.

Mr. Bug is so very verbal these days. He is a complete looney! His sentences will floor you.

A funny story...he was outside with BJ the other day and pooped in his pants...he walks up to Brian, throws his hands in the air and sighs and as his hands slap his thighs he says..."Dad, I pooped in my pants". Brian trying not to burst into uncontrollable laughter, says..."Well, what are you going to do about it?"...he answers..."I just don't know". As funny as it was, the scamp comes in and says..."Mom, I pooped...clean my butt." To which I promptly said, "No thanks, I am busy." He didn't like that answer to much...but oh well, I don't like cleaning poop is what I told him. I have resorted to making him clean his own undies. He stood in the tub and washed them out yesterday...all the while telling me how fun it was...and how much he liked it and wanted to do it again. Great! He is a complete loon I am telling you. He gags when ever he sees the poop, and doesn't want it to touch him...but refuses to go in the potty. Lord, help me make it through this time! :)

My Kaden on the other hand, has no issues with poop oozing out of his diaper...which is generally does unless he's had a few jars of bananas. :) Like that image don't you. The boy is literally huge these days. My little Hercules. He is steadly learning to pick on his brother and actually likes to wrestle with him. It is really funny. Poor guy is apparently allergic to something in the air these days...more so in Waxahachie (unfortunately) than Garland. I am thinking the cedar trees are bothering him. As soon as we exit the truck, his nose becomes a faucet and his eyes get red. I am hoping it will pass, but for now we are trying a Benadryl regimin. I hate medicating him, but don't know what else to do to get him to dry up a little. Poor guy at night he is so wet snot sounding it is awful, I have actually been sucking his nose during the night, which causes terrible screaming and makes his brother cover his ears while sleeping. (Quite funny to see.) Hopefully it will pass and he will not have too many problems.

We are trying to get the house thinned, packed and moved...but it is a slow painstaking process for sure. We got the storage building moved and most of the stuff from it down there. But we still have so much to go! I hate moving! What I would do to leave it all behind and start fresh! Haha!

The school is on its way. We have windows and a door in, I am working on forms, handbooks and works. What I really need is a money backer or invester that is willing to invest about $5000 into a private school to help supply the inside of the school. Anybody know any wealthy people with nothing to spend their gobs of money on? haha!

Anyway, I am going for now...take care until next time...we-
