Happy Anniversary!

Yeah...... Today is my anniversary. It is hard to believe that we have been married for 8 years. I look back on the years and I am amazed at what God has given us. He has given us 2 wonderful, adorable boys that we love, he has allowed us to purchase a house, and he has kept us all safe and healthy. Where would we be without him. Needless to say it has been a wonderful 8 years and I am looking forward to many more. I love you Derrick!!

Happy Grandparents Day!

As most of you know yesterday the 7th was grandparents day. If you didn't know then now you do. I always wonder why it is a holiday that most people forget. I think that it is as important as Mother's Day or Father's Day. I read a poem and a quote the other day that really fit into what I think that Grandparent's Day means.

Few can bring the warmth
We can find in their embrace,
And little more is needed to bring love.
Than the smile on their face.

They've a supply of precious stories,
Yet they've time to wipe a tear,
Or give us reasons to make us laugh,
They grow more precious through the years.

I believe that God sent us Grandparents
As our legacy from above,
To share the moments of our life,
As extra measures of his love.

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

To all the Grandparents out there. Happy Grandparent's Day!!!!!

I know that I haven't written for awhile so I decided that I would start with Dylan's first day of school. My baby started 1st grade today. He is getting so big and so old. I am not sure that I like this. Dylan loved his teacher and his friends that are in his class. His favorite thing about the day was......Lunch! He could not believe that he ate lunch with the big kids. I could not believe how grown up he seems from last year. Enough about that...Dylan here's to you and to the wonderful school year that you are going to have. I hope that you love 1st grade as much as I think you will. I love you lots!!!

Dylan ready for his 1st day of school!
