Stephen and Samantha’s Wedding

The wedding was perfect! Y’all just don’t know how worried I was about ALL THREE of my kids cooperating…well not necessarily “cooperating” but just making sure all three were where they were supposed to be at all times and whatnot. I was mostly worried about Reece because when she’s around strangers she is SO shy. I was the same way when I was little. But she did great! And so did my sweet boys!

I have no pictures of the reception, I took my camera and everything else to the car right before the wedding because I didn’t want to have to keep up with it. And it was so hot I didn’t want to go to the car and get it back out! ha!

When it came time for the father/daughter dance the bride requested that all the daddies and daughters join them…so Josh and Reece had a little dance. Then when it came time for the mother/son dance they requested that the mothers and sons dance. Griffin was sitting at my feet and looked up at me with those big blue eyes and asked me to dance with him. I immediately teared up and then he said, “But I’m too scared” and started crying! He felt SO bad that he was too scared. I, of course, told him it didn’t matter! And we had a pity party! hahah!

Later on he asked me to dance again, and this time he was FOR REAL! So we danced to Sweet Home Alabama! :)

Barnyard, Broke Leg and a Wedding! :)

Haha! How’s that for a title!

Last weekend we went to my cousin’s little girls birthday party at The Barnyard! So much fun! It was hot as blazes, but anything you do around here this time of year is hot!

Feeding the fish and ducks!

Wondering why there’s not a lot of pictures of PeyPey?? Halfway through the party he apparently got too hot and started throwing up! Not fun. So we had to bail on the party early. :( But we still had fun while we were there!

So about the broke leg. Saturday afternoon I was about to get dressed for a wedding shower when my cell phone started blowing up. My Daddy and sister Kelsie were calling. I called back and Kelsie was crying…my first thought was that Kelsie’s friend who had a really bad wreck the night before had died(more on that later)but, all I could get out of her was that Gigi had fallen out by their pool and was being taken by ambulance to the hospital and her leg was broken. eeek! So I threw on some clothes, ran by Kelsie’s work and picked her up and headed to the hospital. We were there before the ambulance arrived so we stood around until it got there. When they finally arrived and opened up the doors all we could see was her leg…and it was VERY apparent that it was broken.

The x-rays showed that both of the bones in her lower leg were broke, one of them in two places…so it was broken in THREE places total. :( Sooooo a plate and seven screws later, she’s on the mend!

The wedding I mentioned is Josh’s younger brother. All three kiddos are in it and this momma’s a little nervous! Reece doesn’t like strangers, doesn’t like being the center of attention and doesn’t like anyone but me or Josh taking her picture.

Yep, we’re in trouble!

Summer Fun!

Where have we been? EVERYWHERE! Since the storm on April 27th I really have just not had the time to blog. I have had a few breaks but then I’m too tired! If you don’t live in or around Tuscaloosa I really wish you could have seen the devastation and where this town is now. It’s amazing! We have come SO far in such a short time.

Griffin and Peyton are enjoying being out of school for the summer! They find water somewhere just about everyday whether it’s a pool or a splash pad!


Reece got her hair wacked off! I wanted it trimmed up so I asked her about getting it cut. To my surprise she wanted it as short as mine! She was pretty adamant about that but I just wasn’t ready. I like to be able to throw it up in a pony tail and go!

Oh and how cute is that outfit?!? My friend Donna made it. Lucky for me she makes Reece cute stuff all the time! I wish I could sew. If I had the time I would SO take that on!

I have to get to work but I still have to blog about a fun party we went to this weekend at the Barnyard! :)

Heaven is For Real!!

Oh my word! Have you read this book?!?

I read it cover to cover in two sittings! TWO. And I don't like to read. And I'm too ADD to read an entire book in two sittings! It was that good! Hubs read it all at once, I'm not that good.

It's about a little boy who had appendicitis and almost died....a few months later he starts talking about things he saw in Heaven...that's all I'm saying. Read it!

It definitely clarified some things for me about Heaven. I never had doubts about going to Heaven, but I've heard some pretty good arguements about whether or not we would "know" the same people we know here on earth. Like people who have died before us, did we really get to see them again?? I've always thought so but doubted after I heard some people talking. Babies that were lost to miscarrage...if you have lost a baby, read the book. I also wondered about animals and that was clarified for me too!

Go read it!
