Weekend Fun

This past weekend Chris and I enjoyed a weekend away in Nashville. We do not leave our kiddos very often, but about one weekend a year we try to slip away for a little fun. :-) The weekend started off with a little Christmas shopping. Then we met up with my dear cousin, Nakia, and her boyfriend for dinner at the Melting Pot and some sightseeing at Opryland Hotel. Our last day we watched the Titans play the Redskins at LP Stadium. Fun Fun Fun! Now where did I put my foam finger...? Hehehe. Can't wait 'til our next adventure.

The Past Year--A Recap :)

It's been so long since I've blogged I don't even know what to call this post!

Okay. I've probably been kicked out of the bloggers' club, but you busy ladies know how crazy life gets. Blame it on facebook and how quick and easy it is to upload pics and jot a quick status update, but I know that is no excuse. I mean after all, these are the most precious and important moments of our lives, and I want to share them with my dear friends and family so long story short--Too late!--I'm back. Please forgive me. :-)

Day out with Thomas

J.T. is fast becoming a Thomas & friends expert. The child eats, sleeps, and yes breathes Thomas the Tank Engine. So, of course, when we learned Thomas was coming to the KY Railway Museum only three weeks before J.T.'s birthday; it was a no-brainer...we were going! I'm telling you it was so worth every dollar spent to see the amazed expression on his little face when the "live" Thomas rolled up the track next to us. We all had a great day even Sarah and my parents who went with us on our big "adventure with Thomas."

About to chuff off with Thomas

So much fun for us all!

Graduation Day

Most of you know J.T. is all boy, but he has a very sweet side (especially where his best friend Sissy is concerned). Every day the ENTIRE year before Sarah would leave for school J.T. would have to give her a hug and a kiss every morning. So on her last day of school I got a picture of him sending her off to school one more time with a hug and a kiss. I could just cry over how fast our kids are growing up!

Congratulations baby girl!

A Breather

It has definitely been a while since I've "blogged," but I have a few (and I do mean a few) minutes before we're off and running again, so I thought I would try and catch up on our recent family events. I'm sure many of you can relate, but our home/family definitely feels like a three-ring circus most of the time! I try to remind myslef, though, I won't turn around twice and they'll be grown, and I'll be wondering what in the world to do to occupy my time. So for now I'll just breathe and enjoy every minute of our crazy life. :-)

Happy Easter

We had a wonderful Easter holiday at church and with our families this year. The kids got up and enjoyed their treats from the Easter bunny before we started the day off with our Sunday School Easter egg hunt. The kids had a great time! Sarah looked like a little cricket hopping around everywhere in her pretty dress, but she did get 16 eggs! While J.T., who I fear is a little "o.c.d." about cleanliness, had a good time too until he got worried he had mud on his shoes. Following Sunday school we had a wonderful church service. After church we went to my Granny and Papaw's for our traditional Easter lunch (can you say the BEST coconut cream pie?!) then it was off to my mother-in-law's where I was unable to eat another bite. Finally, we rounded the day off with church at Chalybeate where Bro. Richard Minton preached a good sermon. I hope all my blogging buddies feel as blessed as I do. I hope you all had great Easter too!
