Such a sweet big sister....

J. LOVES her little brother. In fact, I'm pretty certain she thinks he hung the moon. The great thing is, I believe, the feeling is mutual. She was the first one to get him to "belly" laugh. Just by talking to him. What a great memory for her to take with her on this journey we call life. I'm so thankful for these sweet kiddos of mine. God is so good.
Sending hugs,

Heart wrenching....

I came across this blog ( the other day and cried my eyes out. It's an amazing story. I think you should read it. It made me want to take ahold of my sweet baby and never let go. It really made me think about how precious life is. Sweet little C. is now 4 months old and time is going by faster than ever. I am so thankful that I have him. He is such a blessing. I am also thankful that I have my sweet J and little man. They are precious too. I am so blessed....

Love in him,
The Mommy

A little retro....

My, how time flies. This is W. at the ripe old age of 2. He has changed so much since this picture. Now he's a whoppin' 8. It seems it was just yesterday that this picture was taken. I miss those days. That ornery grin. He was(is) so stinkin' cute! I love you little man! No matter how old you get, you will always be my baby!!!

Sweet Moments

I love those sweet moments when you stop playing for just a second and stare at me. I love looking into those precious blue eyes and imagining what is going through that sweet little head of yours. You are growing and changing everyday. I am full of wonder and awe knowing this love for you. It's so deep that sometimes I feel like I might burst. I love you C.G.B. You are my sunshine!!

Daddy's shoes

It's not a great picture, but this is my sweet little C. wearing his daddy's baby shoes. I hope someday that he grows up to be just like his daddy. His daddy is kind, loving, generous, creative and very talented. He is the best daddy in the whole world and a pretty fantastic hubby to boot. I'm crazy about the man. I'm so thankful! God must have been thinking about me when he created J!!! I love you sweets!

Sweet Jameson...

This is my sweet little sister, her sweet hubby and cute little Jameson. As I type this, Jameson sits in Haiti waiting.... Waiting on food and water. Waiting to find out if he gets to come back to the states. Most importantly waiting to see if K and A will be his "forever family". He came into their lives quite unexpectedly and changed all of our lives forever. Please pray for Jameson. Please pray for my sister and her husband, as well. They are in love with this little guy and want him for their own. I know God has a plan. However, this is a long and drawn out process that will be even longer due to the recent events in Haiti. So, please remember them in your prayers. And please remember sweet Jameson and all the others from the orphanage.
With much love,

Love this girl!

This year J. was nominated as one of the MOSO all stars! I am so proud of her. She is so smart! I have never met a kid with more enthusiasm when it comes to school. She is so precious to me. I can't thank God enough for the chance to raise such a great daughter...

"J and W Long Fort"

Kids are so creative. They thought it would be a good idea to build themselves a fort. They actually thought they might get to sleep in it. LOL! Then they realized that it's pretty dark out. Not to mention the cold. They are so funny. Kids...gotta love 'em!

A little late...

So, I knew I would be bad at posting something everyday. It seems I just can't get away from that sweet little guy long enough. However, here I am and I only missed a couple of days...right?
Anyhow, I am cheating a bit. I didn't actually take this picture. I stole it from The Children's Place website. Isn't it cute? I'm thinking that my littlest guy must have one of these. Just a thought.
So, tomorrow I promise to have a "real" picture and a little more interesting topic.
Until then!

Baby Hands...

Don't ya just love baby hands? Cooper's hands are so sweet! I love how they curl around my finger. They are so tiny, yet getting to be so big. Time goes by way too fast. My little guy is growing older every day and lately it's been very visable. This makes me happy and sad all at the same time. I'm gonna miss this...these days when all I have to do is look at him to see him smile. That sweet little toothless grin that is priceless. For now, I am gonna hold those sweet precious hands and create special memories that will last a lifetime.

The life of kids...

Isn't this picture too funny?? My son got this sleeping mask from his Memaw. I guess he decided to try it out. I was getting ready for bed and making my nightly rounds and this is what I came across before lights out. I have to admit I laughed until I cried. He's such a funny guy! Love that kid of mine!
Anyhow, another frigid day in the good ol midwest. I hope you all stay warm.
Sending hugs!

365 Project

While I must admit, this picture was taken about 2 weeks ago, I just had to use it to start off this 365 project that everyone seems to be doing.
My sweet little guy is so precious and I am soooo thankful for him. God really blessed me with such a sweet baby. Here he is sleeping like an angel, sucking his thumb. Both are rare, I might add. Seriously though, How stinkin' cute is he??? I'm biased, so shoot me. Here is to the start of a new year and a new blog. Here's to hopin' I can keep up with this project. Just be patient with me. I am new at this.
Sending hugs,
