Happy Birthday Baby!

Dear Jackson,
Today you turn 7 years old!  I really can't believe it and it makes me so sad to see how fast time flies!!  You have grown into such an amazing boy.  My heart flutters with pride at everything you have turned out to be!  You are so smart.  You are witty.  You are quite the social kid who loves to talk to everyone and makes a friend with anyone!  You adore school and I am so proud of your academic progress.  You are an amazing big brother and so thoughtful to those around you.  Please don't grown up so fast! I love you more than you will ever know! I am so grateful that God chose to bless us with you! Happy Birthday baby!

Jackson had a Dr. Seuss birthday this year! It was great! My amazing twin sister made the cake and it stole the whole show! It was awesome!!!  The party favors were cute goodie bags filled with swedish fish.  I printed out the one fish, two fish book cover and taped them to the bags.  They turned out SO cute!

  we had the party at our local gym with a jumper and lots of space for the kids to run and jump and scream!

Against my better judgement, Logan had his birthday party at Chuck E Cheese' this year.  It happened to be when Jackson was in the hospital so we had to kind of throw it together.  Again my twin sister did an amazing cake and his buddies from school came. Quick and easy and they cleaned up the mess!!!

growing pains...

Logan has been complaining about leg pains.  I think he is growing and maybe the pain in his legs is from how fast he is shooting up.  He is catching his big brother!  I tried to explain to him that sometimes things may hurt a little now, but it will be worth it when he is big and tall and all grown up.  Then I got to thinking about the growing pains I'm experiencing in my own life right now.  My heart has been so heavy the past week or so.  God is moving, and speaking to my heart.  I was led to a book that I started reading called Crazy Love by Francis is rocking my world.  I'm only on chapter 5 and am going slow on purpose.  I'm trying to be still before God and listen to Him, listen to what He is trying to tell me, where he is leading.  There has been pain involved.  Emotional pain.  Conviction pain.  Growing pains.  I don't want to be a lukewarm and content christian.  I want to be who God wants me to be...just still trying to figure out who that is.

Happy Valentine's Day

What a great Sunday we had with at gramma's (yep, gramma makes them!), with valentine exchange with all the cousin's!  So much fun to have family close and gramma Jeanne here visiting!

Mardi Gras is here!

It was a gorgeous 60 degrees yesterday so we decided to hit our first parade of the Mardi Gras season! We got to ride our golf cart there since it was right by our house! So much fun! The boys had a blast! And the weather was AMAZING! So nice to soak up some sunshine!!

Okay, I don't know if it's because it is winter and I'm inside so much, but my living room is driving me CRAZY!! Apparently I LOVE brown...but, I really don't.  Wouldn't know that from looking at my living room!! Check it out!

Brown walls, brown floor, brown wall hangings, brown furniture, brown rug...brown, brown, brown!

the week on my iphone!

I never realized how much I enjoy taking pictures and capturing life's little moments! And I can't help but LOVE my iphone!  Here are some of my favorite shot from the week! I guess I'm kinda doing the Project 365 idea!

"Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

Matthew 11:28-29
