For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Spring Break

Maybe it’s my age, and it definitely has to do with the age of our kids, but staying home for Spring Break is amazing! We had a great week. I enjoyed every minute at home with my babies. We played outside, played inside, and ran errands. I got a lot done around the house, too. You can actually walk around in the carport now. Sean worked on the house this weekend, too. He built farmhouse trim around the front and back door, and it looks so good. We also made a Tuscaloosa trip and stocked up on groceries at Aldi. Tomorrow, we’ll be back to a normal schedule, and I’m a little sad. Sam says he’s ready to go back to school. He loves it!

I went through a lot of boxes this weekend, and I came across a box of things I had saved from my childhood. The boys noticed the stuffed animals right away. Sam picked out a clown. Luke picked out Oscar the Grouch. Thomas picked out a pound puppy. They have carried them everywhere, and it was so cute!

Celebrating Thomas

We celebrated Thomas’ 2nd birthday this weekend, and it was so much fun. Pop and Linda got here Friday afternoon, and we went out to eat and hung out at the house. Saturday, we played outside as much as we could before the rain came. After naps, Nana and Frank came over. Thomas was serious about opening his presents, and it was really funny watching him. He didn’t want his brothers touching them. After presents, we had cake and ice cream and watched the boys play. It was a great day! Pop and Linda came over this  morning, and we had breakfast and visited before they headed back to Memphis. It was such a great weekend! Now Luke is counting down to his birthday.

Thomas’ birthday...I was trying to get them to hold up 2 fingers. Sam wants to be 6 so bad that he was holding up 6 fingers.

A little better, but TC started picking his nose!

I never really got a good birthday photo, but I got some funny ones.

Sam read Green Eggs and Ham to Pop. It was so sweet!

Sean did this today. I am going to stain it this week. The photo doesn’t do it justice. It is so beautiful!
