Happy Memorial Day

Of course I start an on-line college course Tuesday and my computer crashed this morning. I am typing away on my brother-in-law's computer. We came out to celebrate Memorial Day with the family. Our neice and nephew are in town with their sweet baby Molly who I just got to rock to sleep. I could just eat her up!!!!!

Anyway I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day. Don't know when I will be back on-line. But it's not like I was posting daily......

A little project

I was supposed to go to my in-laws yesterday but my mother-in-love wasn't feeling well so we changed our plans and went home. As I sat in the garage ready to get the kids out I had a spontanious thought(not necessarily a good thing) and asked the kids, "hey, why don't we paint the shed"? Of course they were on board so off we went to Home Depot and picked out and bought paint. I had no idea they now made paint that had the primer in it. My new best friend!!!! It was expensive but not more than if I had bought paint and then primer separately. Also it cut out the two coats, at least for this job it did. Anyway we got home and started right away. I love how it turned out it is just the pop of color my yard needed.

If you click on the picture of the kids you can tell they were really into helping me. I let them do the back of the shed and of course at one point there was more paint on them then the shed. They had a great time.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to my mother and mother-in-law. We hope it is a great day for both of you. Thanks so much for the impact you made in our lives growing up and now as adults. We love you! Grandma we don't want to forget you either. We hope you have a wonderful day too.

I hope all mothers have a great day. Whether you are a mother, want to be a mother, or a mother to a baby in heaven I pray it is a great day for all of you.

Can't believe it's been 7 years

My middle son, Carson, is 7 today. I can't believe just how fast time goes. We had our oldest son, Chandler, and wanted another so badly. Right when we accepted the fact that God was only going to give us one child, 9yrs later we were excited to find that we were having another. He is such a wonderful little boy. Full of life, very intent on doing things the "right" way, very athletic, passionate, and such a tender-hearted little boy. He was so excited when he went to bed last night. Just waiting to be seven was killing him. haha.
Carson we love you and are so thankful that God blessed us with you seven short years ago.
