Biker boys.

Jason took little Gidder for a ride on our neighbor's bike....he loved it. Isabelle ran as fast as she could to the house...she was a little scared. Jason and I took it out too,on our anniversary weekend. It was so nice to be on a bike again....the good ole days!!

Back outside.

Isabelle is shutting the wagon door for Gidder.
Isabelle is giving him a little ride in the wagon...she loves to be in charge.

Gideon just loves the car....he starts the car,points out his pointer finger and says"bye mom see you soon,love you".

Taking a little break in their chairs.
We have finally been able to go back outside. Just love the outdoors!!

The kids have had so much fun on their bikes this year. Gideon doesn't like to sit...he would rather stand.

It just melts my heart when they play so nice together and help each other out.

This bike is from Ms. Haley and was handed down to Isabelle, well Isabelle hasn't liked it much but Gideon loves it!!

Our little reader.

We find our little Isabelle very often in her room with the door close reading in her bed. She has always liked her own time to herself.

What happen to my babies.

I am very sad to say that both kids got into a big bed this past month. Gideon got out of his crib this past week and fell on the train table. It was so hard to see both cribs go. We have no more baby's here at the Schutty's house.

1 Year.

It has been 1 year in the big ND....I can't believe it. I still clearly remember the day we left. My mom was the last one we saw and waving good-bye to her at our old house, tears are just filling my eyes as I remember her sad face.
This year has definitely been very hard. It has been an emotional roller coaster. God has been absolutely amazing and continues to bless us everyday. I have been able to see the last couple of years so clearly.....why everything had to happen. We have learned that God is our only security......that is all we need. As we continue to do God's will for our lives we have faith and hope that he will keep speaking to us and guiding us in his will...which still isn't always easy.
I am sad to say but this will be my last monthly blog. I am very grateful for all of you that have been apart of our lives this past year and for the support that you have given us....especially with me... all my crying. We couldn't of done this without all your prayers and encouraging words. We love you all very much.

Is spring on it's way?

We have had some beautiful weather the last couple of weeks. We have been taking full advantage of this weather. It has been so refreshing to be outside again. We are all hoping that spring is on it's way!!!

Brownie Goodness!!

Every week my two little bakers help me make a treat for Jason's lunch. This past week we made cookie dough brownie's. They even do such a nice job cleaning the bowl and spoon for me.

Sledding on our hill.

We still have a pretty big hill in our front yard, everything is starting to melt but it is going to take quite awhile for our hill to go away. We are still enjoying sledding on it.

It has been very foggy and frosty here. All the trees and bushes have been covered with layers of frost every morning. We have had some problems with the power lines due to the frost but other than that it is just beautiful!!!

11 months.

I can't believe it is time to write about another month already. As I look at my blog I haven't posted many pictures this month.
It has already been a year since Jason and I took a trip out here to look for a place to live....I just can't believe how fast time has gone by. It is hard to believe but last year it was alot colder. We have had a busy and an emotional month. We made it to Michigan this past month. My grandfather past away. My grandpa Don was such an amazing man. I have so many wonderful memories with my Grandpa Don. He had a huge impact on my life. He always put his family first, he was a strong man of faith, he always helped where there was a need. He got alztimers disease about 12 years ago and never once did he complain about life and the pain he was in, instead he always thanked anyone that was helping him and would read his Bible. His words in everything were" It's all Good". This was true man of his unbelievable faith. I have been truly blessed to have had my grandfather as a role model, he taught me so much. His life has been an inspiration to me. It was so hard to say goodbye for now but we also rejoice knowing that he went home to his father and I can't wait to give him a big hug with his new body someday.
While we were in Michigan we were able to see most of our family and friends. I can't believe it but for the second time visiting in Michigan I don't have any pictures....sorry. It was very nice to see all of you again. On our way home we took the kids to a great wolf lodge. We all had so much fun. It was a nice break for the kids for our long drive. The kids have been doing alot better in the car.
We celebrated valentine's this year as a family. We made some Valentine heart crafts and heart cupcakes, the kids enjoy it.
Jason still keeps very busy at work. They have been doing a lot of house which he loves. It is starting to get back into the busy season again.
Isabelle has been doing very good on the potty. She has been getting up very early, so we got her an alarm clock. That has helped a lot. She has been very sick this past month with two ear infections, a very bad cold and the flu. She has been coming up with so much funny stuff. One day we were driving home and a flock of birds went by and Isabelle says " bye bye birds go home to mommy now". I just love their imagination!!! The last couple of months she has been into Dora. Everything has to be Dora. She always says" mom I love Dora. She has made alot of new friends at daycare. She is going to have one of her new friends come over to play in a couple of weeks. I can't believe this time is coming already.
Gideon id definitely going threw his terrible 2's. He has been having alot of tantrums and everything is no. He is such a sweet and sensitive little guy, I have a hard time punishing him. He has been quite sick this month too with two double ear infections, a bad cold and the flu.He has gotten really attached to his elephants. He wants his elephants by him at all times. He also wants every stuffed animal in his bed with him at all times. On our trip whenever a big truck went by he would say " mom big you see um,do you see um. It is so cute!!
It has been a little harder month saying goodbye to our Grandfather and having some winter blues but this month God has really taught me about how he works everything out in his plan, he always supply all of our needs. Sometimes I need to trust a little bit more.
We love and miss you all.

Good time bowling.

We went on our first adventure bowling this past weekend. The kids has so much fun....they talked about it the rest of the night. It was such a treat to get out and spend some time together as a family.....we have had the flu this past week and haven't been able to get out the house for almost a week.

10 Months.

We have reached 10 months already. It is getting very close to a year already.....I just can't believe how time is flying by. It has been a very nice month, we have had alot of sunshine and alot of beautiful days to play outside.
Jason and I were able to go on a day date. It was so nice. We dropped the kids off in the early morning and headed to Bismark to do a little shopping and enjoyed a nice lunch together. We took the scenic way home and it was absolutely beautiful. It was so wonderful to spend all day with Jason has been too long!!
We are going to be starting a Bible study at our house next week with two other friends....very excited about.
I have gotten some new opportunities this month. I was going to start volunteering at the kid's daycare this month, she called and asked if I wanted to work there instead. I have been working there for two weeks now. We go in the morning and leave after lunch. The kids love it and it is so nice to get out of the house. I am still not quite sure of it but I know God guided me here for a reason. I have also gotten close to to a friend out here. I have enjoyed going out for coffee with her the last couple of Friday nights. She has started her own business and has recently asked me to do her book work for her.
I have been a little overwhelmed and confused this month with so many new opportunity's and not knowing where God wants me at. I came across this message this week....which I have on my kitchen cupboard to remind that he is in control and he will keep guiding me to where he wants me.
" Have no fear all is well. I can see the future, I know better than you what you need. Trust be absolutely. You are being led in a definite way, and others who do not serve your purpose will be moved out of your path. Do not plan...I have planned, you are the builder not the architect. Trust me for all and literally depend on me for everything." So I am going with the flow and keep on watching where God takes me.
Jason has had a couple of half days on Fridays this month. He has been enjoying that a lot. They are still pretty busy at work. Jason"s boss had a little conference with him this month and Jason said everything he said was better than any raise he has ever received.
Isabelle has had a very exciting month. We moved her into her toddler bed. I remember to clearly putting her to bed that first night in that bed......looking at my sweet little girl, tyring so hard not to cry and thinking where has the time gone!!! Then Innocent Isabelle says" Mom you don't have to cry I will go to bed now".
Isabelle got an interest with the potty when she got her new bed. I was so excited because she has been so hard to potty train. I haven't been able to get her on the potty for anything. It has been a struggle and we have been some bad days. She is doing very well.....we haven't had an accident for 5 days now and she has been staying dry threw her naps and it has been two nights now that she has stayed dry. She has also found a new friend at daycare. His name is TJ. She calls him her boyfriend and she will tell you all about him.
Gideon has had a little harder month.....he is going threw his terrible two stage. We have experienced a lot of tantrums. He has been very interested in his puzzles and books this month. My favorite this month is when he does something for you and you haven't said thank you yet he will say " thank you mom.... your welcome". Even threw his tantrums he always makes us laugh..he is such a joy.
It has been a good month. God continues to love us and guide us. We miss and love you all.

Picnic in January.

We had a long weekend inside due to some bad weather. After awhile we ran out of ideas to do with the kids. We decided to have a picnic inside with their table. They loved the idea so much that I still have the table in the middle of my living room.....we have to do everything on it now.

The kids got these Easels for their birthdays from aunt Ton. It came with numbers and letters. The kids love to do all their coloring and painting on them. We use these daily. Thank Aunt Ton....the kids just love them.

New Barber in Dickinson.

Our neighbors came over a couple of weekends ago and the boys needed a haircut...Jason offered to cut it for them. The boys were very excited to get their haircut by Jason, they all turned out very nice. If you need any services you might have to come to north dakota but Jason doesn't charge.

Snow Days.

Here we are climbing up our big hill in the front yard.
Isabelle has been enjoying eating the snow this year.

We had to put snowballs in our sled and take them for a walk.

Jason made a little fort for the kids.....Gideon has been under the weather and not sure about it all.

The kids were enjoying having a snowball fight with Daddy.
The weather has been perfect this week... we took full advantage of it and spent alot of our time outside. It sure was a nice break from the cold. Jason and I had just as much fun as the kids. It is amazing what your body gets used too. It has been in the 20s-30s and we feel like spring just hit....almost wanted to start spring cleaning.

Winter road trip.

We took a little road trip this past weekend. We wanted to check out the badlands in the winter. It was absolutely beautiful. I wish I could capture the real beauty on camera. We made it in to Montana....not very far in though. The wind picked up and the roads started to get pretty bad.
It sure was a nice drive seeing all of God's beauty!!
