Mother's Day 2012

I am a mom.  I'm happy, sad, grouchy, frustrated, loved, joyful, thankful, a giver, a taker, a yeller, a calm voice.....so many things...but above all, I am BLESSED to be a mom to two of the sweetest, stinkiest, crazy, LOUD, fun, whiney, lovey boys I know.  I pray daily that I will be a good and Godly example to them.

Zoo Trip!

After the fun day in Elgin eating crawdads, we went to the zoo to pet an elephant!  I'm pretty sure this makes me the best Aunt ever!
Wiley and Grant...sweet cousins!
You can also see Kendal with her Uncle Justin!

Well...I tried to get them all looking while the elephant was doing something cool!

Can you see her foot up on the rail???  Pretty cool!

Crawd-N-Rods 2012

We went to Elgin way back in May to go to Crawds-N-Rods.  It is the annual fund raiser for the Elgin Fire Department.  There is a crawdad broil, a car show and they also have a carnival.   It is always a fun time and this year we took along my parents, my niece and nephew.  Here are a few of the fun memories that we had!

Easter 2012

We had a wonderful Easter with our boys.  It was a little unusual because we didn't spend it with any of our extended family, but we still had a great day.  We dyed some easter eggs, hunted some easter eggs, and talked about Our Savior, who we were truly celebrating that day!


Van spilled the dye within about 45 seconds of starting!

The cleanup towel.  There were lots of spills.

Van thought eating the eggs was more fun that coloring them.

Wiley with his masterpiece.
Their Easter Baskets.  They each got bible books, bubbles, candy, drawing/coloring toys and some other odds and ends.  

The egg hunting stopped as soon as he figured out their was candy inside.

My little hunter.


My favorite!

And we're done!

Bubble blowing with a little marshmallow from the rice krispie treats!

He was so proud of each egg he found!

The prize egg with some money or monies as Wiley likes to call it!

Digging in my flowers!

Checking out his loot!
