I am the home room mom for Barrett's class this year. It has been a little time consuming but I have really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure what to do for his teacher for the class gift so I came up with this. I got a live wreath from Kroger and decorated it with ornaments and ribbon. His teacher is a huge RAZORBACK fan so I found these cute Razorback ornaments at Hobby Lobby! I got the class to all chip in money and I purchased about five different gift cards from all her favorite places and placed them in these adorable gift card holders. She LOVED it!!!! Thought you might enjoy this fun idea. I know I will be doing it again!!!!!

Happy Anniversary!!!!!

I can't believe that Barry and I have been married for eight years. Where in the world does time go? I am beyond thankful for the husband and father he is. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you Barry for loving me, the boys, and Jesus Christ. I can't wait for all the many years ahead of us. I love you more each and every day!

A Thankful Attitude!

"A thankful attitude opens windows of heaven. Spiritual blessings fall freely onto you through those openings into eternity."

Dear Jesus,
I love the image of spiritual blessings falling upon me through heaven's open windows. And all You require of me is to be thankful! That seems such an easy condition; yet I stumble over it almost everyday of my life. Help me overcome my ungrateful attitude.
-Sarah Young

I came across this and it is so true. Why is it that we wait til Thanksgiving to be Thankful? I am so guitly of this. Thank you Lord for reminding me of your open window of Thanksgiving! I praise you that it is always open!

Am I ready????

One week from today my baby boy starts K5. I cannot believe it! Where does the time go? Barry and I have gone back and forth for about a year now trying to decide where to send him for school. Last Spring the Lord nudge us in every way and said it's time to take a leap of faith and trust me. Everything in me wanted to hover over him and protect him as much as possible. We tried to ignore it but just couldn't. Public school is the direction we are taking and I couldn't be more excited. He will be going to Chenal Elelmentary! I have heard such wonderful things about it and can't wait for God to reveal himself to us through this. I am praying that he will make some sweet friendships and so will I. I will keep you posted on what the Lord does throughout this year. I feel as if it's going to be amazing even though I have bawled my eyes out!!!

"Be willing to go out on a limb with Me. If that is where I am leading. It's the safest place to be."

A couple weeks ago Barry decided it was time to purchase the boys a wakeboard! I didn't mind the investment because I knew with all these boys it would get some good use! Barrett still isn't so sure about it! Barry is working with him ;)))) This summer has been a little difficult to make it to the lake as much as we would like with Bennett but next summer we will make up for it!!!

Such a Sweet Weekend!!!

Eating some smores!!!!

Looking back on the past five years that I have been a mother this was one of the best weekends. I don't know if it was because I wanted to enjoy these last few moments with the boys before another one is added (not that I am not excited but I know the new baby is going to require extra attention) or because Barry made it so special. He truly went above and beyond to let me know how much he truly appreciated me.

He decided that him and Barrett would camp out in the backyard Saturday night. Barrett had the greatest time. We made smores and just enjoyed being together. Branton and I were safe in our beds!

Where Have I Been????

Is the question. Not so sure! This third pregnancy has just about done me in! I am on the home stretch and starting to wonder how am I going to do this. Branton has been extremely hard lately and I am I trying to be as consistent as possible with him but MAN, it is hard at times. I keep reminding myself that I don't feel myself right now and surely I will have a little more energy to get through the days ahead. God is so good and we can't wait to meet our new addition. We have decided on a name but haven't gotten the word out just yet. Honestly for the sole reason that we don't want people's opinions! We went through that with Branton and choose not to go through that again! May 17th is induction day. Three weeks from today! We will keep you posted as our new wee one ARRIVES!

Happy Birthday Branton!!!

Happy Birthday BRANTON! My baby will be two on Saturday and I cannot believe it! Where does time go? He has been such a great joy to our family. His little personality is so sweet and special! He is my cuddle bunny for sure. I am a little nervous about our new addition in a few months because he demands a lot of quality time and is my sidekick FOR SURE! When we moved into our new house we decided to put him in a big boy bed. He has done great! We will see if this continues. Thank you Lord for this sweet boy who makes life worth living for!

Yes! That's right we are gearing up to move into our new house. We have the movers scheduled for January 22 which is Barry's 30th Birthday! Happy Birthday Barry! I don't feel to bad because he has been planning a ski trip for some some time now and the deal is that he has to have us all moved in before he leaves the following week. I thought that would give me a chance to get the house all organized and have something to do while he is gone. SO, that means that these next couple of weeks are going to be a little crazy. I feel like I just did this. Oh well! I love to clean out so here goes!
The boys are doing great. They are super excited about adding ANOTHER brother to the mix. I can honestly say I am really excited about it! It's amazing the way the Lord prepares your heart. Leading up to my ultrasound I really thought I was having a girl. A few days before we went in the Lord gave me such sweet moments with my boys that made me realize how much I love my boys and another one would be just fine. I rest in the Lord knowing that he gives us exactly what we need and when we need it. Thank you Lord!
