Been a month since....

Things in the Wise house have been pretty crazy this past month and I have yet to had to time to relax and post on my blog so... this post is going to be a quick catch up.

We have finally opened the new Building for Suntanz and that is a big stress reliever... I felt like I was working 24/7 on top of another 24/7 job of being Wife and Mommy. It looks great and we have had amazing feed back from the customers. We've been a lot busier here lately than we have in a while, especially during slow season but we are gearing up and putting on our Christmas smiles and hoping we have a BIG HOLIDAY rush with all our new products that we have now.

 My personal favorite being the Stephanie Dawn bags that we got. They are just like Vera Bradley, made by the same manufacturer that they were when they were made in the states and the same exact material, just way more affordable. They even make the same things just different patterns!

And I am also making custom picture frames and mirrors, along with coasters.  Here is one Picture Frame that I've made.

After the first week of Opening a tragedy in our family happened and Jordan's dog Duke, which became more like JJ's, that he had gotten for his birthday a year ago tried to jump the fence while we were in Manila and visiting family and got his collar caught on the fence and hung himself. It was awful and I'm glad that the kids didn't see it, our neighbors called to inform us of what happened and my father in law buried him for us. I didn't imagine what toll it would take on the boys. I knew JJ would be upset but I wasn't prepared for how much Jordan would be upset. That next Morning JJ got up and once he was ready to leave for school he let himself out to the back yard to tell Duke bye like he normally did and grabbed his ball and was yelling for him. I went out to get him and he was sitting in the dog house asking for him. I didn't know what else to say except for that Jesus needed a good dog like Duke to play in his backyard so that all the kids in heaven could have a good puppy to play with. His words to me were "Jesus send nother." I couldn't do anything but cry.And you ask what my response was.... yes baby Jesus is sending you a new one right now... He's gonna pick you out a special one!
This is the day that we brought Duke 1 home.
 A day in the life of Duke 1
 Playing Fetch with the boys... JJ loved throwing Duke the ball
 And always thought that he had to feed him.

Needless to say Jesus knew what he was doing cause that next Thursday we picked up Duke the 2nd. He has the same Daddy as Duke 1 did and looks JUST like him! JJ will not call him just Duke, he insist that his name is Baby Duke, which he is a LOT smaller than Duke 1 was the last time we saw him.
JJ is finally allowing "Baby Duke" to get in the dog house and just the other day told him that he "guessed" Duke would be okay with him playing with his ball. They are pretty happy together, although Jayden is still trying to adjust to the hyper little puppy!

It took JJ just a little while to realize that it was okay to have a new puppy.

Other than that we are gearing up for the holidays and looking forward to spending it with the family! No worries I wont wait so long to write again! Happy November!

Harvest Fest

Here is a view from our weekend adventure. JJ's friend Karly that I keep on Tuesday met us there with her Mommy and it was a blast! It was great being able to let the kids just run around and not having to worry, we even let JJ and Karly choose which way we went through the corn maze. Lets just say we went in a lot of circles! The kids were so worn out they even let me sleep in a bit this morning! JJ's favorite part of the entire night I think was the Face painting, he wouldn't let me wash his spider off so this morning there was "nother sider on his pillow" (in his words). Jayden enjoyed the hay ride the most, mainly cause she liked eating the hay! haha.  We even got to bring home pumpkins!
 Karly Jayden and JJ in the corn maze, we had to rest a bit!
 Jayden Love, she was so good all night even when it started getting late.
 JJ and Karly's face painting. JJ got a spider and Karly a bat
 Enjoying the hay ride. Not much of the hay was left after these two got out of it. They tossed it everywhere!
 Always smiling for the camera!
 On the ride home with their pumpkins
Anytime we can find something kid friendly the whole family can enjoy it's fun. I love watching my kids grow a little more everyday!

Picture Perfect

This time last year I was just wondering when my little girl would enter this world, I just knew that she would be the one to look like me, have brown hair, and big green eyes. God had other plans and not that I'm complaining but he made one little girl that her daddy will have to be keeping the gun by the door.
I want to thank Katie Betts for bringing out the best of Jayden Love. She did great on the pictures, espcially with it being 730 in the morning and working with JJ walking in and out of pictures. Here is some of her work. She did an amazing job and I can't help but brag about her. I definitly know who I'll be contacting in the future!

 To see more of her work or schedule a session with her here is her web address: http://www.betwixtandbetweenphotography.com
Thanks again Katie!

How Our Family of FOUR Started

Jordan and I met at Harding University where we both attended college. Started dating January 5th, 2006 for 7 months and knew almost immediately that we wanted to spend the rest of our life together.

We got married May 12th, 2007 in Puerto Moralas, Mexico on the beach with our closest family as our witnesses. It was a beautiful week there, even though the only 2 hours it rained was during the wedding. In Mexico, if it rains on your wedding day they say it is good luck, and it turns out... we've become the luckiest two people in the world.

Our first child was born July 18th, 2008. We named him Jordan Lynn Wise Jr. and call him JJ for short ( which for those of you who don't know JJ is after JJ Reddick, who once played for Duke University and now plays for Orlando Magics). He was 8.3 lbs and 21 inches long. We were so amazed by him and just thought our family was complete.

Our next child was born October 13, 2009. She was then and is now Daddy's little girl. We named her Jayden Love Wise, and she was 7.1lbs and 19 inches long. I knew from the minute I saw here that she was the most beautiful thing in the world, and those who were standing outside of my door can verify that cause it was the first thing that came out of my mouth.

We currently live in Walnut Ridge, AR. Jordan is attending school at Williams Baptist and will complete his degree in May, while I work this next year until we know for sure where we will be next Fall. We are putting all our trust in God to show us the direction in which he thinks will be best for our family and our future together.
This is our family and we are by no means perfect... and this is our fairy tale of ENDLESS LOVE.
