Weekend Recap

Hey y’all! What a busy weekend we had, I feel like I’m always saying that these days but it’s the truth, this is a very busy time of the year for us. Hopefully things are about to calm down now that preschool is about to be done for the summer.

Steven was out of town last week. Of course we missed him terribly and were happy to have him back home late Thursday night. Brady’s game was cancelled Thursday due to rain. Friday our Cardinals played their last baseball game of the season. Β They had a great year and we are very proud of them. (Steven stayed home with the kids while I went to the game.)

As you can see, the whole baseball team bleached their hair for the playoffs.


It started raining but thankfully my brother shared his umbrella with me. And the rain didn’t last but a few minutes.

Saturday was prom night. So we went to Kayla’s to see Gage and Makenna all dressed up.

Gage and Makenna

My handsome nephew Gage.

My beautiful niece Makenna.

Makenna and her handsome date, Alex. Y’all, Alex is one of the sweetest kids I’ve ever known. He is a sweetheart.

Gage and Cameron. Cam is our cousin and another great kid. They look very handsome, if I must say so myself.

The kids were excited to see everyone all dressed up.

After the big kids left for prom, the rest of us headed to TaMolly’s to celebrate Steven’s birthday.

Sunday we had church, Steven grilled steaks, we did some visiting and gave out our Mother’s Day gifts, and after evening church service we ate pizza.

This is the last week of school. Tonight is the end of year program. Tomorrow we have a field trip and then our summer officially begins!!!

Mother’s Day 2017

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I hope your day was full of lots of love and laughter.

My Mother’s Day weekend didn’t go as planned. Late Wednesday night, a young lady from our community passed away in an automobile accident. She was so beautiful, inside and out, and just the sweetest person ever. My heart is broken for her family. I can’t imagine their pain. During her funeral all I could think of was her mama. I can’t think of anything worse than losing one of my babies. It was so heartbreaking.

You know friends, I’ve seen lots of posts on social media about moms wishing to get a day off on Mother’s Day or a vacation that day to get away from their kids, and I can honestly say that’s the last thing I want. Tomorrow isn’t promised to me or Steven or any of my six kids. On Mother’s Day, I want to see their sweet little faces and hear their cute voices when they say “Happy Mother’s Day”. I want to feel their hugs and kisses. Moms, we must always cherish every little moment with our children. None of us know if this Mother’s Day will be our last Mother’s Day with one of our children. It’s so important for all of us to make each day count. Live life to the fullest. Enjoy every phase of their lives, the good, the bad, and even the toddler years (times 5)!!!

My Mother’s Day was very low-key. We went to church and then Steven grilled steaks for lunch. Afterwards, we all took naps, well, they sleptΒ and I blogged.

I’m so thankful for Brady, Mia, Tessa, Brant, Gracie, and Rayleigh. I’m thankful God chose me to be their mama. Being their mama is the hardest job I’ve ever had. They wear me out, they frustrate me, they drive me crazy, but I can’t imagine my life without all six of them in it! They fill my life with so much love and joy and it is a honor to be their mama.

Brady Boo

He is my rainbow baby. After three heartbreaking miscarriages I was losing hope of ever having my own baby. Thank you Lord for blessing me with this sweet little boy. I love him with all my heart. 🌈

The Quints….

They are my surprise babies. I never would have imagined I’d carry and give birth to quintuplets, but my God is able! I’m so thankful for these 5 little surprises. They make life so fun!






My greatest blessings call me Mama!

Sunday night after church we went out to eat pizza. Mia and I had fun taking selfies.


Be blessed,
