Well a lot of things have been changing around the Sanders' House lately. After a couple of years of praying for a new job, God blessed with the opportunity that I have been longing for. He blessed me with a teaching position at Vilonia in the day care. This allows Pate and Bella to actually get to go to school at Vilonia. So now my babies are going to be starting Kindergarten at Vilonia Elementary. I can't believe my babies are that old yet. It seems like they should still be little. I hope they know how much I love them and what a blessing they are to me.

If that didn't already make me sad enough about my kiddos growing up Pate lost his first tooth today. I am NOT ready for this!!!
Bella is doing competitive Cheerleading now. No matter how hard her daddy tried he couldn't talk her out of it. He asked if she wanted to play softball or soccer. To which she replied "No, I want to be a Cheerleader." He even tried to get her to play T-ball with Pate when they practice. She told him "That's okay dad, I will just cheer for Pate when he hits the ball." So this Our Little Cheerleader doing what she loves.
It makes her momma a nervous wreck because she is the smallest and she is the smallest so she is always on top. So now our weekends consist of Cheer Competitions.
I know she hasn't convinced her daddy to love Cheerleading yet. But he loves his baby girl so he goes to show his support.
Pate on the other hand thinks the best part of Cheer Competitions is the Concessions stand. He loves being able to get popcorn and icies.
I always enjoy checking my friends blogs to see what is going on in their lives, however I have severely neglected my own blog. So one of my many new years resolutions is to reconnect with my blog and my friends on blogger.
Ok, so I know I haven't posted in a while. Thank you Diana for bringing that to my attention. So let's see what are the highlights of my life since my last post: I became a great aunt! My niece Lacey had a little girl Jocelyn on January 1st. I started school and my life is now full of homework.
Larry got saved! He is supposed to be baptized March 1st! We are all so excited.
Bella attended her 1st sleep over birthday party last week. She had a blast. Thanks Michelle and Audrey for all the fun. While Bella was eating heart shaped pancakes at Audrey's house. Larry took Pate and I out for breakfast at Stoby's.
My sister in law and brother-in-law watched Pate and Bella, so Larry and I could have a belated Valentine's celebration. We went to Little Rock and ate at Samurai, it was so good! Then we just came home and hung out. Thanks Jennifer and James for watching the kids so we could have a date!!!
My Dad left this morning to go to Wood River, Illinois for work. So last night we all went to Brown's Catfish House in Russellville to eat. He will be up there for a while and we don't know how often he will get to come home, so remember him and my mom in your prayers.
I have decided after much thought and prayer to go back to school and finish getting my degree in Early Childhood Education. So, please be in prayer for our family during this time of change and transition. I am going to be working full time and taking classes. I am going to have classes both during the day and at night.
I am both nervous and excited to get this new adventure underway.
