My Handsome Hubby

This is my sweet hubby. I thought I would write alittle about him. Not only is he handsome but he is the sweetest man I know. From the first day I met him, he has always been a gentleman, and so sweet to me. Whenever or wherever we go, Mark will always hold my hand, always. We love to be together. Mark loves to go fishing, and wishes I loved it too. He goes fishing with his buddy when he gets a chance, and I love to see him so happy!
Mark loves Sci Fi movies, computer games, computer tech stuff, fishing, camping, hiking and playing cards with family. He is a great Dad, and loves to be with Kyle, throwing a ball, helping him with his homework, or just being crazy.

This year Mark finally passes me up and turns 40. I stopped having birthdays a few years ago!!!!! I love that he is mine and that we can share anything with eachother. Thank you Mark for 17 wonderful years, only 33 more to go and we can dance at our 50th wedding anniversary!!!

I love you!

The Fleshman Family!!

We are heading on down the road this weekend to go see these wonderful people!!!! This is an old picture but the same great family!!!!!

It has been awhile since we have been to Redmond for a visit, i guess it was Thanksgiving time! It is always nice to go spend time with them, we always have lots of fun and laughs and the kids get along just great!!!!

I am so lucky to have such a great brother. He has always been there for me. Always protecting me. In high school I was not Carie Fleshman, I was John Fleshmans Little Sister, and that was fine with me!!!!! He always made me proud to have him as my big brother! Thanks John, I love you!!!!

WE....are a Baseball Family!!!

I have a ball player. (and a mighty cute one at that.) Just look at him in this pic, all cool with his shades on. He loves baseball. That is his only sport he plays, and he plays it well. In the Spring and early summer, you can always find us at the field watching him play, it is awesome.

Yesterday was tryout day for his age group. He moves up to Juniors this year. Tryouts were 4 hours, and they judged the players on skills, to be able to place the boys on certain level teams: National, American, or Federal. If we got a call last evening, that meant you have to go back today to show more of your skills, in order for them to place you on a American or Federal team. ....................Kyle got a call back. It is so cool too cause the guy that calls doesnt' just talk to Mark, he asks to talk to Kyle, so he can tell the ball player that they want to see more of his skills. He is thrilled that he gets to play ball again today..............then tonite we should get a call to see what team he made it on.

A couple weeks ago my dad was here and he wanted to get Kyle some Catching Gear. He took Kyle to Dicks Sporting Goods and they had lots of fun trying all the stuff on. Kyle is a Great catcher, and rarely does anything get by him. We hope that with his catching gear he will be able to catch more this year. Kyle and Papa John have a deal for the season. Something about 3 homeruns will get him a new bat.................lets see if he can do it!!!!!!

We are just excited for baseball to start. As soon as we see the sign go up at the baseball field every year, that signups are happening, we all get thrilled. I always tell Kyle that just seeing the sign makes me smile. I look forward to many more baseball seasons, watching my son do what he loves to do. ( this parenting thing turns out to be pretty darn great!!!!) When it is baseball season all of our plans revolve around games. It is fun to have Grammy and Papa, Papa John, Uncle John, Aunt Sandra, Chessy and Josh, come for a visit and take them to a game too!!! I can't wait!

Here we go...................................Batter UP!!!!!!

Oh it has been awhile.....

............well I don't know what happened, I guess it was just life that happened. We have been busy with everything, and trying to be happy in all that we do. With things the way they are
right now it is hard to keep smiles on our faces, but we live life one day at a time, enjoyng the beauty.

I am going to try to blog more. I am having troubles getting my pics posted on here, but maybe
I can get "someone" to help me with the computer tricks!!!

Check back here soon for more updates!!
