Langley Family Update

So, I figured I needed to give an update of what is going on with the Langley family these days. We have been living in Newnan, Georgia for 2 1/2 years now (wow, time flies, doesn't it!). Donny is working for the Kmart Distribution Center here in Newnan as the 2nd shift Inbound Mananger. I am working full-time as the payroll clerk for three Rite-Aid distribution centers in Newnan. Our jobs keep us very busy, but for the most part, they are good jobs, and we enjoy them. Because Donny works 2nd shift, he is able to stay home with Philip all day. This makes it much easier for me to go to work each day - knowing my baby is home with his dad instead of in daycare all day. I'm not sure I could handle that. Donny has become quite the Mr. Mom. Now, ladies, remember he is mine forever, because after you read this next part, you are going to want to take him as your own, but Donny takes care of all the household chores. He cleans, does laundry, runs errands - pretty much everything. What a lucky lady i am, right!

Madilyn will be 10 in January and is in the 4th grade. She is in Chorus at school and loves anything that has to do with music. She is also an avid Littlest Pet Shop collector, and currently has about 150 pets, and is excited to see her collection grow with the holidays and her birhtday quickly approaching. She is my biggest helper with Philip. She usually bathes him every night for me. She has finally turned into a "young lady". She likes to make sure her clothes match, and are clean and neat. She loves to shop - just like her mom. But along with the age, I can already see the attitude of a tween-age girl beginning to creep in. All in all, we could not ask for a better daughter!

Colin is 7 and in the 2nd grade. Colin is all boy. Rough, tough, down and dirty. Colin loves anything that has to do with the outdoors. He loves playing in the woods and getting dirty. He is quite the comedian and will do just about anything to get a laugh out of you. We have discovered that he has a photogenic memory. He can memorize his entire reading story for school each week just by reading it one time. He memorized his part for the Primary program in about 30 seconds. It is amazing. His memory is very sharp, too and he can remember just about anything he hears. It's pretty cool to test him on things you wouldn't think he would know, just to see what he can remember.

And, of course, my baby Philip. I know, I know, he will be four soon, but he is still such a baby to me. Oh, this kid, he has my heart. He is so dang cute. You can't help but love him. Even when he is giving you his 3 year old attitude and saying "Me not like you anymore". But don't tell him you don't like him back - he will cry so hard. Then he has to come up to you and say, "Look" while he gives you a big smile. That is way of letting you know, all is better now. And you better smile back, or it all starts over again. This happens at least every 15 minutes at our house. But Philip loves to play with trucks and our dog and outside. He loves to watch Wow Wow Wubzy and the Backyardigans. He loves his dad, and they are best buddies.

So that is pretty much our life as it is right now!
