Three years ago today...


Three years ago today, I had a sweet baby boy that I thought I'd never have. This perfect little gift from God was like a dream. Today, he is one of the joys in my life. He is funny, outspoken, entertaining and smart. I know all moms think that about their kids, but it's true. He is.;0) I'm sad that he is three today. I'd like to slow down time so that he didn't grow so fast just like I'd like to slow down with my other kiddos. God has given me so much more than I deserve. I don't deserve such a sweet precious boy, but I'm thankful God chose me to be Benjamin's momma. He's a Cars lovin', Thomas the tank engine track buildin', baseball playin' little guy!

Oh Lightning McQueen!!!


This is Lightning McQueen--our newest addition. Isn't he so cute? He was given to us about a month ago and has just stolen our hearts. He's a good boy, has house trained well and knows how to sit and lay down. He is a male golden retriever and is about 3 and a half months old. We just love him.

Happy 40th Babe!!

So, you might think I'm looking for brownie points because I'm blogging about my sweet husband, but I'm not. I'm blogging about my husband because he turned 40 today and he gets a birthday post just like everyone else! And, because, if you don't already know it, I'm here to tell you that I'm married to a good man. I've always thought my father is the greatest man I've ever known; and, although he still is, Jerry is a great man also. My husband loves the Lord. He loves me. He loves our children. He is the sole financial provider of our family and he provides above and beyond our needs. I love him more today than I ever thought I could love anyone. He has been my stability for over 20 years. This man...deserves more than what I can give him. I am so imperfect. I never stay on budget. I like to go to McDonald's. I'm fat. I don't wear make-up everyday. I'm am so unworthy of his love, but he loves me anyway--and not just a little bit; He really loves me a lot. Wow! Isn't he the greatest? Thank you, babe, for being such a good man.

What is it about your first born?


Do you have a special bond with your first born? I'm not playing favorites, but Allen just holds a special place in my heart. It's unlike Marymae's and Benjamin's special place, you know? It's a having-learned-about-motherhood special place, huh? Today, I asked to take an Easter picture of him and he said, "Mom, let's take a picture together.". Awww. That melted my heart. So, we turned the camera and snapped this picture. I think it's precious. My sweet 13 year old boy wanted to take a picture with his mommy. See why he holds that special place?
