Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

Back to Reality...

Well, tomorrow morning the alarm clock will sound at 6 a.m. and we will come crashing back to reality. The two week break has been so much fun and we packed a lot into it.

The trip to Memphis included:
  • Magee and Hada
  • Uncle Will and Aunt Martha
  • Uncle Carter and Aunt Jamie
  • Reiny and Ashlyn
  • Madagascar 2
  • Chick-fil-a lunch
  • Cat wars
  • Baking Christmas cookies and red velvet cake (gluten free, of course...)
  • Christmas Eve and Sunday services at St. Mary's
  • the Peabody decorated for Christmas
  • making snowmen...out of marshmallows...Sweet Ashlyn...we asked her if she wanted to make a snowman and she said, "But it isn't snowing outside" and then went to check for any signs of snow.
  • playing, laughing, having fun, enjoying family and time together
Tomorrow, it's back to school. Back to the routine. Back to reality. The lunch boxes are on the counter, ready to be packed. The school bags are by the front door, ready to be grabbed on the way out the door. Gloria was in bed on time tonight and has already picked out her clothes for the morning. Now...am I ready???

I had fun visiting with you and Gloria. I hope I can find the time to come to Charlotte this year. Can't wait for you to come to Dallas one day. See you soon!
