My Little Man is 5

My little man is Now 5, can you believe it. Seems like yesterday he was toddling around my house on those days we got him. He is growing up so fast.

Ok, I forget what you call it. But there is lots of candy in that eyeball and the kids all want it.
Grace is taking her turn at it.
Somebody got it open.

Time for Cake. IT was a dress up party. Little Mans mom went back in the Hippie Day.

Hunter Boy, the only one of the 3 who would look at me long enough to get a decent picture.

Bam Bam has his second outfit of the night!
I Want More Candy Mom! Back to Bam Bam and he looks Tired!
happy birthday little man, we love you.


I have had the pleasure of working for most likely the worlds best boss since March 2005!!!!!! He and his partners owned the local Dunkin Donut Shops here in Charleston, well in 2007 he sold the stores, stayed on as a small owner and operator.
He has left the company, too many details that cant be posted. This has been and continues to be an extremely stressful time. Cant explain it but it has felt like a loss of a family member.
Not sure what will happened in the future, but I do know that I am stress extremely thin. One person cannot do this job the right way. We have the accountant (Chief Financial Officer) coming down to spend a few days with me this week. Lets hope I get through this week shall we. I have always loved this job, I hope that I find that once again, but I'm not holding my breath.

Baby Boy turns 24 and My Uncle Terry has s surprise party on the same day.

My baby boy has turned 24.

He has so much going on, and I am so proud of him. He is engaged and will be married on March 6. Mental note toself, dont forget the tissue.
They are in the process of buying a home and he is going to school full time on top of working.

Happy Birthday Brandon, I love you!

Lyndsey threw him a very nice birthday party.

For years I would buy the boys every Monopoly game that came out. It was unreal. I'm happy to say that Lyndsey is carrying on the tradition. She is going to make a very good mother one day, but NO hurry.

Grace is helping him open his gifts.

The Friday night before Paul Ray and I went to the Mercy Me concert, the band that opened before them was Fee. I got Brandon a shirt, cd and guitar pics for his Birthday.

His cake the Lynds got him.

This was his other gift from me. My boys love Cookie cake, one year for Brandons birthday, there was half a cake left of a very Large cake. His dear sweet brother ate every single bit of it without Brandon knowing it, so I hear about it all the time. So I wanted to make sure he would have cookie left over.

Random cute pic of Grace and her friend.
Growing up, I spent alot of time at my Uncle Terrys house. His daughter threw him a suprise birthday party.
Happy Birthday Uncle Terry, I love you.

My mom and Grace playing in the dirt. YUCK!

Grace being silly


boy, life does get in the way, its been two months since our last post. Lets try and do catch up.
Grace is Still LOVING school. I some how ended up being room mom. But I am enjoying it, however my life has really reached beyond the stress point. I'll post more on that in the next one.
We had our Harvest Party at school. did I mention how happy we are with where Grace is at. God planned it perfectly, and I am enjoying watching his plan with Grace unfold. Her teacher is truly another blessing.
Can you see their pumpkins?

This little light of mine

The Spider Song

We had a pizza party and all the kids loved it. They had plenty of food. Grace has gotten her first report card. She got all Exceeds and Meets. Maybe we can aim for all E's next time. And she is not as quiet as I thought she would be at school. She seems to have lots of friends, but her closest ones seems to be Shirya and HunTER. I type it that way, because that is how you say it according to her. She loves HunTER, he is a tiny little thing, and she treats him like a mother hen. Reminds me of Brandon and Devan.
I took her for a regular flu shot several weeks ago and it was like taking a different child to the doctor. She choose to get it in the arm and did not cry, she was such a big girl. I was so proud of her. We then got ice cream. Well this past week, we discovered she was missing one of her immunizations for school, so we had to go back for another shot, and she also got the H1N1 mist as well. Again, no tears, but she is quick. As soon as it was over, she got a hug, she says mommy can we get ice cream now, The nurse loved that. Yes baby girl, you can. Off to Sonics where she chose a hot fudge sundae with bananas. She ATE the WHOLE thing.
She is still in our bed a good bit, heck I cant lie, I don't remember the last time she slept in her bed. The other night I went to bed and they (her and her daddy) were already asleep, she was stretched across my side with her foot on her daddy's chest. I took a picture but cant post it because Paul Ray will kill me.
Hey, are you ready for Christmas!!!!!! I am, however it is going to be very tight around here, this is the first year we do not have a Christmas Club account.
