My Life… My Journey… My Lessons...

What a life I live, what a beautiful blessed life I live. Is it perfect? Absolutely NOT. But am I so abundantly blessed beyond my own belief and even comprehension? YES! Yes I am! And you know what I am so secretly grateful for? My trials, yes my trials. I look back and reflect, reflect on the times that I felt my Savior near, where I was humble, humble enough to drop to my knees and plea for comfort plea for him to be there by my side, and he was! He was there he is always there. But it take humility. Humility isn't a sign a weakness. Its knowing things are beyond what you,  I am able to hold or handle. I've been praying, pleading lately to have humility… kind of strange right…. the times of trials is when I have felt a feeling of humility the most and I want that feeling to return. But humility is MORE…. more then crying our for help. Its knowing knowing there is a power greater whether it be a trial I don't think I can make it through or constantly falling short as a mot


Just had to share what this cute girl said today: "Mom you know what we should do?"     "What" "We should take pictures of me and sell them all over the world."  I laughed... "What then we can be rich, don't you think that would be a good idea?" So who wants one?  ;) This is the same girl that asked for a maid or at least cleaning ladies today..... she dreams big, what can I say?

I'm going to miss this!

Who would have guessed I am a terrible blogger. What is a girl to do? I guess I have just been uninspired to write. But as I watch these sweet little ones grow I realize how fast time is sweeping by. I absolutely adore them! I want to remember and also share the memories of life with my littles. I  may go back in time for some of my posts, or I just might log our daily adventures. But here is a quick update: We have lived here in Germany for the past almost  three years. What an amazing opportunity and adventure we have been on. We have traveled every chance we have gotten and have really enjoyed and appreciated the experiences we’ve shared as a family. Tye also deployed for a year. What a challenging, character building, lonely, exciting year that was. I will expand on that another day. Tye has been home for about seven months now and we have been enjoying our time together as well as adjusting to being a family again. While Tye was deployed he decided to re-enlist

2010 at a glance.........

2010   ~January~ Tye leaves for basic. We find out we are expecting , (definitely an answered prayer) ~February~ To help pass the time while Tye was away, my friends and I decided to have a Valentines day party . The kids loved it and these pictures will be so fun to have for when they are older. (Taten, Saxton, Tanner, Bronwyn, Ledger, Molly and Oaklee) ~March~ Oaklee and I went back east to see my sisters !! I flew in to Atlanta and Addie and Char met us a few days later.   So this is a funny picture, when Addie and Char arrived from NC, James had an ( as the Noblits call it) ooodalally in his pants. Me being pregnant refused to change the three year old's pants while Holly was picking up the girls. So Addie the sweet aunt she is changed him, but mind you this was definitely a team effort. ~April~   This is Tye getting ready to go back to AIT after we spent Easter with him. I just love this sweet picture of Oaklee helping
I just thought I would share this to show my gratitude for all of the military spouses. It is such a difficult thing being away from you companion and best friend, leave alone worrying and wondering about their safety. LETTER TO A MILITARY SPOUSE: While I have never had the pleasure of meeting you or your husband, I felt the need to write you and express a very deep feeling that I have in my heart. I, as a person, am not brave. I do not tackle things head on, as I hate confrontation. I will travel 100 miles out of my way just to avoid a conflict. I am an American woman that has no idea what is going on in the military other than what I hear on the news. I have never had to let go of someone so that they could go fight for people that they didn't know, people that sometimes do not appreciate or understand what they are fighting for. I have never had a sleepless night of worry because of a report that another bomb has exploded and I still haven't heard from my husband.
It is so crazy to me, that sometimes in our we don't understand our trials, and why things happen the way they do. Until one day we look back and realize the opportunities those hardest moments and darkest hours open up in our lives.  As I look back at what Tye and I have gone through, and thank our Heavenly Father for those trials and where they have gotten us today. I know that if Tye had not had the these specific trials in his life, he wouldn't have been in certain situations to share, to be an example to people who may of never opened their hearts to just the simple knowledge of a Father in Heaven who loves them. Although I know that it has been extremely difficult for Tye, his mission is different than others. I am so proud of him, and even in his hardest moments he opens his heart to our loving Heavenly Father and is able to bless so many.  God has a plan for each of us, and individual plan. Sometimes our missions are not clear, but if we cling to our Father in Heaven we


Baby Giles #2 This little bundle of joy is scheduled to arrive Sept. 23, 2010. We are really excited for this little one to join our family. Although we've been wanting another baby for awhile, we were suprised that it finally happened. Our Heavenly Father has his own timing and it truly couldn't be better timing. Even though I have been sick it has really helped all of us have something exciting to keep our minds off of missing each other so much. Oaklee is soo excited to be a BIG SISTER! Ever since she saw an episode of Calliou she has been wanting soo bad to be a big brother. We had to convince her that she couldn't be a big brother but she could however be a big sister. I had a feeling that something wasn't quite right the day after Tye left. I didn't know when I would be able to talk to him again so I went to the store and hesitantly bought a pregnancy test. (I didn't want to jinx anything.) After finally getting to talk to Tye I hurried and took the test
