Woodall Wedding

This weekend Ben's brother James got married! He and Sarah had a beautiful evening wedding at the Hudgens Art Center at the Gwinnett Arena. Ben was a groomsman and Jack was the ring bearer. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed getting to know Sarah's family. I just love them and can't wait to spend more time with Sarah and her family!

I Am That Mom....

the one who let's her kids eat chips for breakfast...

the one who sometimes pops a beer at 4:30p.m. when her husband is hunting overnight~

the one who forgets to set the alarm and wakes up frantically getting everyone ready for school..

the one who forgets to send lunch money when it is already past due..

the one who would rather blog sometimes than make dinner!

the one who goes in every night and kisses her boys while they sleep...

the one who is more than thankful to God for blessing me with such a wonderful husband and kids..

the one who almost doesn't have any babies in a crib....

the one who cries at the thought of not having any more babies!!!

Not Me! Monday

Bowen, Me, and Matthew
Bowen's stitches

It is Monday again and you know what that means....Yes, Ladies {and maybe some Gentleman} It is Not Me Monday...time to spill your guts about things you would rather not share....

My son Bowen did not cut his foot on a piece of broken ceramic candle causing me to call 911, and then took him to the ER for stitches....nope, not me!

My back has not been out and causing me to have severe back pain, going to the Chiropractor, and taking medication to help numb the pain.....nope, not me!

Thanksgiving Fun and a Christmas Tree

I am just now posting Thanksgiving pictures. We went to Jon and Tori's house to eat with Ben's family. His Mom, Step Dad, and little sister came in town, and Nana and Pop came too! We are so thankful that they were able to join us this year. We have spent several Thanksgivings up in North Carolina with them and it was nice for them to come down and spend it with all the boys,their wives and grand kids! We are sooo blessed to have each other!

You Never Get Used To It...

Blood. Even though I see it quite a bit I never get used to it. Saturday morning Bowen was in the tub while I was in the shower and a ceramic candle fell in the tub and he cut his finger. Well, Sunday morning after I cleaned out the bath tub {or so I thought} all three little boys got in the tub. I hadn't even got in the shower yet and Bowen lets out a horrible scream. I look over and there is blood in the tub and he has a huge gash on his foot. I immediately get him out and wrap his wet body and bloody foot. Since I was home alone and his foot was bleeding so bad, I called 911. The EMT's came in and wrapped his foot and offered to take him by ambulance but I decided that would freak him out. So, I got everyone dressed and headed the to ER at Gwinnett Medical. My Mom met me there like she always does to help me and be there for moral support. They gave him medicine so he would be relaxed....and boy was he!! We were cracking up at him. He was laughing uncontrollably and he couldn't even sit up! He got 4 stitches on his foot and will have them removed in a week...You never get used to it!

A Few Words Wednesday

I was fortunate enough to meet my blog friend~Hilary in person today... She lives in Minnesota but has family in Ga. Both of her parents are from here! What a gem she is! It was so fun to hang out with her and get to know her more..nothing like meeting in person! I can't wait to hang out again...thanks again for driving to come see me...i feel special!

This is Isaac and Me. What a sweet, sweet boy! The boys had a great time playing with him and asking him a TON of questions about living where it snows!!

This is sweet baby Raven. She is 7 wks. old.. precious angel who loved me! Duh right!? From all the pics on Hilary's blog I thought she looked just like her Daddy but, seeing her in person she looks a lot like her Mama!!
