Happy 11th Birthday To Our Oldest Son

Happy 11th Birthday To Our Oldest Son

I will keep this as SHORT, SWEET, and least SAPPY as possible… Because if I don’t, I will become overwhelmed with emotions! And hence…will be a blubbering mess for the remainder of the day! We cannot have that because we still have lots of celebrating to do.

Today we are celebrating our oldest son’s birthday, and I simply cannot believe that our baby is getting so big, so incredibly FAST! He was our first child, and was the one that we tested all of our trial and error parenting techniques on. Haha! Just joking! But he has really taught us so much in the way of parenting. We never knew that DEEP, PURE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE until we first laid eyes on him. And over the past 11 years, he has helped us to become better parents, and better human being all around.Continue reading

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

Hi Friends and Happy Father’s Day to all of our daddies and daddies-to-be! We have had a wonderful day showering Patrick with love, and now that we are home and he is taking a little evening Father’s Day nap, I decided to sneak on here and write a little post for all of you about the ADVENTUROUS day that we have had. So here it goes…

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny:

1. So, here is how our morning began…. Well, I should really give y’all a little backstory first. I was FORCED BEYOND MY WILL to take a HUGE portion of cake home from the baby shower yesterday. And not just ANY section of cake, it was more like the entire side which had an ENORMOUS amount of LUSCIOUS FROSTING. Which I usually do not complain about free cake, but this cake was DANGEROUS y’all!

It was a fabulous, homemade, incredibly moist, creamy, rich, buttery, melt in your mouth, almond flavored cake…. And it tasted exactly like Wedding Cake. And here’s the problem, Wedding Cake is my one weakness! It is my favorite and I lose all of my senses and become completely clutched in its grasp while in its presence. Well, on my way home yesterday evening, I tried my very best to get rid of it all. I dropped some off to my grandparents, and then brought the rest to the boys. I left it on the counter hoping they would devour every last morsel.

But when I woke up this morning and headed into the kitchen, there it was… just STARING at me! One glorious piece of cake left. It was as if Jesus had saved it just for me! I tried to resist at first, but as I walked past to retrieve the coffee creamer from the fridge, I got one heavenly sniff and immediately fell into its evil clutches. I had no other choice but to gobble it up at once. Plus, you know that I am an adult, and it IS technically okay for me to eat cake for breakfast… And that is EXACTLY what I did.

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… It’s Partayyy Time!

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… It’s Partayyy Time!

1. For those of you who are just joining us, we have just started homeschooling our children this year; and today marked the end of our very 1st week! What a GREAT week we had! The first few days were a bit of a learning experience as we worked on getting into a good routine. And we are HAPPY to report that by the time we reached Thursday, we had found a nice routine for our whole family. Now, I am sure that there are things that could always be improved upon, but we will learn what needs to be changed and tweaked as time progresses.

2. Since this week has gone so well for our entire family, we decided to CELEBRATE! We believe in rewards for hard work around here. Plus, our little ones DESERVE it! The have faithfully gotten up early every morning, with little to no complaining. PRAISE GOD! Oh, and not to mention… they finished ALL of their course work in EVERY subject for the week. They also passed all of their tests with FLYING COLORS. That, my friends, makes my heart SOOO HAPPY!!! 🙂Continue reading
