Gracie loves her sunglasses. 😎

Well, I guess it’s easy to see that I’m completely smitten with these six precious souls. I’m so thankful God chose me to be their mama.

Fresh Cuts

I took the kids to Ms. Debbie yesterday to get fresh haircuts. We went straight from school so on the way I stopped and picked up a couple of pizzas. We had a picnic on the porch of the shop while each kid got their hair cut. It worked out perfectly. Now the kids are all ready for their end of year program next week.

Thankful for Friends

It’s no secret, the quints completely changed mine and Steven’s lives. We are so busy keeping up with the kids and keeping up with household chores that we rarely do anything with our friends. This year, one of my goals is to reconnect with friends that I’ve lost contact with. I have to say, and I’m not trying to brag (well, not too much anyways) but I have absolutely the most amazing friends in the whole world. I have the kind of friends that are there for me when I need them, no matter what.

Just yesterday, I received a care package from my friend, Paula. I have lived with Paula and her hubby, Dave on three different occasions. They have been so wonderful to open up theirΒ homeΒ to me when I really needed a place to stay. So, during all that time of living together we all got to know each other really well and they know my love for Do-si-dos Girl Scout cookies. While I was pregnant with the quints and on bed rest in the hospital, Dave and Paula made sure I never ran out of Do-si-dos. (That’s probably one of the reasons the quints were such good size for their gestation.) Well, yesterday I received a package, and inside was a box of Do-si-dos! Paula has been keeping close tabs on our potty training adventure so she and Dave sent me some cookies to help me get through this stage in our lives. I feel so loved. And it warms my heart that even though I don’t get to see them much anymore, they still think about me and take the time to let me know they think about me. Everyone needs friends like Dave and Paula, because they are more than friends, they are framily.

So my challenge to myself and to all of you that read my blog is to be a good friend to someone. We all need friends. And we all need to know that someone cares about us. Surprise a friend this week.

**Paula and Dave…you’ve met this challenge this week. Thank you and I love you!

Be Random

Hey y’all! So, do you ever get in a rut and just feel like a hamster running on his little spinning wheel? I sure do sometimes, especially this time of the year. January is by far my least favorite month of the whole year. There is just nothing going on, nothing to really look forward to, so it’s usually during this time of the year that I feel blah. So, yesterday I got the bright idea to make a birthday cake. Random, right? Especially since it’s nobody’s birthday at home. But I had the cake mix, icing, and sprinkles so I went for it. I told the kids about it and they are already singing happy birthday to themselves, it was so funny and cute. And today I’ll let them eat it. They are going to love it!

So today, I challenge you…be random. Do something that really doesn’t make a lot of sense. Do something that will bring a little happiness to someone else. Get out of your rut. Be happy. Spread happiness.


Be blessed,
