Mother’s Day 2013

Standard

Happy Mother’s Day….

Being a Mother is truly a gift from God.  Life before Savannah was good but unfulfilling.     It is so true when they say “I never knew I could love someone so much” or “Children completely change your life”.  Until you have children you do not truly understand the impact they have on your life.

I have loved Justin & Jordan for many years but until I had Savannah I didn’t know how to really “LOVE” them in a Motherly way. Hopefully they know that I love them and did try my best.  For me Mother’s Day is more exciting than any other day because I feel so lucky to be a Mother.

So this Mother’s Day weekend started out with Muffin’s with Mom at Savannah’s pre-school.  I got to go to school with Savannah that morning and hang out and watch her class sing little songs they had practiced for Mom…  Although Savannah refused to sing I was so happy to be there.  I don’t want to miss a thing.. One of my favorite things Miss Kelly did was ask the kids questions about their mom’s and write it down and have it laminated.. Definitely a Keeper

Well I can’t believe it’s already May and as usual I am behind on my always “I’m gonna blog more New Year’s resolution“. I am so jealous of people who can be purposeful in their blogging. My intentions are always good but I’m just not GOOD at it. So I have just accepted the fact that I am not an everyday blogger. Maybe I am just a once a week blogger, once a month blogger or shoot I need to catch up on my blogging blogger. Whatever I am as I blog I am gonna take the pressure off myself to do it and try to start thinking of it as a pleasure instead of something I must get done. Maybe that will help me.

It has been a good couple of weeks. Savannah is growing so fast and quickly becoming a very independent little girl.  She want’s to dress herself & do everything on her own.  Which is good and bad.  Her last day of pre-school will be June 7th and then it’s SUMMERTIME!!

But something even more special has happened on this beautiful day.. My oldest son Justin graduated from Clemson University..  Well he is my step-son but I love him as my own.. I just hate calling him step-son.. I need to come up with a new name maybe  love-son, great-son or cool-son.. I don’t know I will get back to that one.. Anyway.. I have known him for a very long time and it has been an amazing journey.  To watch him grow into the young adult he is today is nothing short of special.  He is very determined, dedicated & hardworking.  To say I am proud of his accomplishments would be selling it short.

Justin has also landed his first job with Ally Bank his first day is June 3rd.. Welcome to the real world.  I am sure this will only be a stepping stone for him.  God has great things in store for his future I just know it.

Great day today Priss had a good day at school. Only a slight attitude this morning but I have decided that I am the mommy and there will be no more arguing with a 3.5 year old. Haha.

I don’t know what I was thinking before I mean really why would I try to reason with a 3.5 year old. Of course I have heard “your mean” a few times but I can live with that. I just respond with “that’s right I am mean maybe that will make you think before you do something your no suppose to”. So no meltdown today and I’m happy.

My son Jordan detailed my car and for the first time in 6 years I got to park in the garage!! Yay!! Savannah were so excited to park in the garage. It’s the little things in life. 
After nap savannah hung outside with her brother while I made a playlist of songs for Ed & Tina’s wedding that will be at the house on Friday night. Then she gathered up
A few dolls and headed out to her play set and had a birthday/tea party for McKenna. When I walked out to check on her at one point she was singing happy birthday.

Now everyone is off to bed and I am right behind them.

Happy Birthday McKenna!

Happy Birthday McKenna!

Ready for pre-school

Easter 2013

Standard

Easter is always a fun time!  We celebrate the life of Jesus and that he died for our sins.  What better time to celebrate!  It’s especially fun with a child.  You get to share this special message and all the fun activities that come along with Easter.

This year Savannah walked in her Easter parade at school and the theme for her class was “Sunday Best” lucky for us that theme was easy peasy lemon squeezy..  All the kids did great and I think she had an awesome time!

When we finally made it to Lazy5 we ran all the way to the egg drop site and got there just as the helicopter was releasing the plastic egg’s lucky for us Nana was looking out for us and snagged a few eggs before we got there.
