Winding down for bed.......????

A night at the Arnolds is nothing short of a lot of noise and a lot of LOVE!  There is always piggy back rides, dancing, wrestling, and a lot of laughter!  Here are a few pictures that I captured the other night!

Brooklynn sure gets her exercise giving piggy back rides

Alyssa loves doing summer salts and the babies wanted to join in the fun

And last but not least, they love tackling dad when he comes home from work!  I think it's their favorite part of the day!

Love this Picture!

I just love this picture of my kiddos.  I'm not sure what Maddox is laughing at, but the others don't seem to think any thing is to funny!

Food for Thought

After the loss of our friends child on Tuesday, I have really been thinking and pondering my own life.  (It seems like this is always the case when we are faced with life's challenges).  
I was so inspired and strengthened, spiritually, after leaving Joshua's funeral (the little boy that was hit by the school bus on Tuesday) that I wanted to share my thoughts.  Although the week has been filled with much sorrow and sadness, I just couldn't get over the faith and strength that his parents and family have.  Joshua's family is exceptional.  What a beautiful family that really understands the plan that our Father in Heaven has for us.      
I have to wonder if I was given that difficult life challenge if I would have the same amount of Faith and Strength as they did.  I know at times I get so busy doing the things that have to be done every day that I get complacent in the things that really matter.  
I just want to tell every one to hug your kids a little tighter tonight, be a little more attentive when they are telling you how your day is going, and kiss them a few more times during the day (if that's possible)!  They are our greatest treasures!   My heart goes out the the Ringer's and I thank them for their unwavering faith and strength!  God Bless.

Terribly Sad News

A Family that we know suffered a horrible loss yesterday.  Their 6 year old son was hit by his school bus yesterday morning and passed away.  I can't imagine what this family is feeling today and I just wanted everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.  I'm sure it would be appreciated!
