Today was rough

Today I had a bad day.  I felt bad for myself, and had a pity party all day.  Things didn't go as planned at a doctor appointment and I let it get the best of me and beat me down.  

It wasn't until close to 6 tonight that I snapped out of it and realized how blessed I truly am.  

I had these 3 little crazies making me laugh uncontrollably in the car, and I stopped and realized I let a whole day go by without appreciating what I had around me. 

I'm laying in bed right now with my 6 year old son.  I remember a time when I couldn't get this guy to stop crying and clinging to me, and people would say the one day you will miss that.  I know the days are numbered, the time is coming when he will no longer want to sleep with me and cuddle up in my arms when Dad is out of town, but man alive the love this kid has me, even when I am crabby and not doing a great job, means I must be doing something right, or it could just be God's grace reminding me that it will all be ok and tomorrow his mercies are new.

Palm Coast day 2

The sun does not stop these children from the ocean.  It has been in hiding the past 2 days now, but it hasn't stopped us.  I love how much they love the ocean.  I love how champ has no fear of the waves.

Palm Coast Day 1

Do not bother mom when we get to the beach, champ if you get stung by a stingray see me and I will determine if we need to bother mom with it. 

I need to get more sand in my butt tomorrow.

I got a scar from the ocean, that is so gnarly.

Easter 2015

the tooth

Around 18 months old christopher fell and chipped his tooth, we have had a couple of problems with that tooth ever since.  He lost teeth earlier than normal and got small absests on his gums, and this tooth even started turning a very dark gray.  
This past week I took him into get it checked out only to find that his big tooth was trying to come through and if that small tooth didn't come out the big one would come in all crooked.  So the dentist decided to pull it out, this tooth was a little touchy to get out, all the roots were still in tact, it wasn't coming out for a long time.  
Christopher was such a champ, he didn't shed a tear and was pretty numb for most of the day!  
He still hasn't put it under his pillow because he really wants to put it on a string and wear it as a necklace, I think he got that weirdness from his father!

Little one there will come a time in your life when purple isn't your favorite color.  The day that comes I may shed a small tear to not hear you say "my favorite color is purple."  Im not quite sure you even know what the other colors even are.  All we know is you request your purple minnie cup, you will only color in purple and when you draw you will only use purple.  
Today you asked me to help you paint a picture for your big sister, and by help you basically told me to paint the whole picture purple.  I love you

The Queen

This girl has spunk.
The range of emotions she goes through within a time period amazes me.  
She is our firecracker and we all can't help but to fall more in love with her everyday.

She loves all things Dora, Minnie Mouse, painted pretties (finger nails), lipstick, high heels, anything her older siblings do, chewing gum and swallowing it, her rain boots, pretty twirly dresses, kitties, monkeys, sidewalk chalk, legos, little peoples, swings, slushies, green beans, dancing, and singing.
