Taking a DEEP breath. . . .

Today I am taking many baby things to be sold at the Fall Mom2mom sale. (Lord willing they will sale!) Can I just say I have tears puddling up in my eyes right now. I am trying to hold them back! But down they pour! What was I thinking when I gathered all of these things Saturday?!?
Exersaucer, bumbo seat, mobile, bath tub, bouncy seat, etc, ETC!!!!!!!! Memories, memories, memories! I think I will take a deep breath and go hug my babies before they grow another second! (And I know all those "things" can be purchased again if they are needed!! ;0) )

Birthdays, Start of School, and Just Because. . .

This is what life has been all about the past month (or so). . . . .

Surprise!!! Happy birthday to Mimi!!!!

Hummingbird Cake. . . . Paula Deen

We surprised Mom for her 60th birthday.

So hard to get everyone to smile. . . . :)

Poor Little Man! His ears are really going to stick out!
His Momma is always kissing on them and his
cousin is always grabbing at them!

Oh how I LOVE my Mom and her sweet love for her Lord and Savior! Praying God will bless her with many more wonderful years! She is one that never complains and will tell you it is all because of His wonderful grace and faithfulness. I love you, Momma!

My nephew turned 3
(does he remind you of someone?)

and my sweet lil niece turned 1!

Silly cousins!

Angel Girl all ready for K5!!!
Hair curled and new top. Had to make her 1st day of HOME school memorable!

Our "class room"

Just love this girls imagination!

She spent the day "practicing" her flute

I must say, it was not always pleasant. Bothersome at times.

All that matters is she had fun.

One day she will be practicing a real instrument.

I love that she LOVES music!

Mimi's House=Getting to see the Cousins!

When these kiddos get together, it is one BIG happy reunion!
The 2 boys are just learning to "play" together, meaning they are learning to share!
The older 2 girls are a blast to listen to and watch. Imagination overload when they get together!
The babies, well, they like to smile and coo at each other. One of them will make the first move with a" taste", touch or tug at the other.
Just love my baby sister and her kiddos! We have a blast together. There is NEVER a dull moment when the cousins get together!

The Word of God will help you make the right choices;
it will heal your wounds and settle your heart;
it will warn of danger;
it will protect and cleanse from sin;
it will lead you;
it will make you wise.
It is bread;
it is water;
it is a counselor;
it is life.

Time to Celebrate!

John and I spent a wonderful evening on PCB. . .

celebrating 6 wonderful years of marriage!

I am thankful for this precious MAN!

God has blessed us and I love my dear husband more than I did the day I married him!

Thank you Lord for the beautiful sunset!

Little Man's Moment

I sure love that precious little face!
Little Man is full of surprises.

No need to share the blocks, Big Sis was busy
playing with Mimi's other toys!
"I have the blocks all to myself!"

Look at that tongue. . .he gets that from his Daddy!

"TA DA! Look what I did!

Spending Time with My Grands

~~Angel Girl with her dear Great Grandmother~~

~~Baby Boy sharing his SMILE~~

~~Little Man loved climbing up on the step stool beside Grandmother's bed~~

The kids seemed to brighten Great Grandmothers day!

Granny could not get enough of "my babies". She does not remember names, but certainly enjoys their hugs and kisses. This was a wonderful day!

My sweet little man smiled and cooed so much. Granny was not even bothered with all of "sugar" that he constantly shares.

C was getting tired of pictures. This was the best one with all 3 great grands.

LOVE those happy smiles!

We had such a special visit. It was a day I will not forget.
Alzheimer's disease has forever changed my Granny,
but this day it was as if time stood still and she remembered
all the smiles, conversations, laughter, and
the joy of being a wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Angel Girl's BIG Day

My sweet girl turned 5!!!!! She has changed so much! Just look at her when she was 2 and now at 5!

I was able to surprise Angel Girl with a birthday slumber party. She just loves her best friend!

Blowing out her candles! She is such a simple gal. Strawberry cake, "Mommy's" vanilla icing, and it HAD to have a BIG 5 on it!

My sweet Girl is a terrific sister and friend to her brothers. They absolutely LOVE her!


PRESENTS! Sweet girl had a very HAPPY day!

Thanking you Dear Lord for this precious, little girl! Just love her tender heart, curiosity, giggles, listening to her pray, watching her imagination at work, hugs and kisses. . . .the list will never end!
