Everyone has a story!

I wanted to share a video I saw at work. My Assistant Principal shared it with us and I thought it was such a great message! It literally moved me to tears.

It really makes you think about how you interact with othersand what someone else might be carrying with them!

We all have our own story and we live it day by day. 

*Just a warning, it might move you too!*

I'm still here...with BIG news!

.Hi guys!
Yes I am still here, been a little absent from my blog. Things have really been busy and a lot has changed. As some of you might know I am a third grade teacher. School has started back up and it has really consumed all my extra time.

But! I want to take what little time I have left after entertaining my almost 11 month old, sweet, lively little man, my hubby, and my very time consuming job to update this little blog of mine!

I HAVE BIG NEWS!....... Like really big news!

Yep! That's right! God has blessed us with our second baby! And when I call this a blessing, I really mean it! Those of you that have been following my blog might remember that a few years ago I found out that I have two conditions that make it difficult to have children. My husband and I fought hard to have our little miracle here with us! After having Gavin I was breast feeding, and we were so surprised to find that we were lucky enough to be able to give him a sibling, without fertility treatments! :)

We now have two miracles, for two different reasons! :)
I am just so excited to have this little one here with us and watch these two grow up together!
And guess what??! We already know what we are having!! This is how we told everyone!

Can you tell what it says?? :)

Houston, we have rain!

Who knew I could be so excited to see rain!?!

Texas is going through the third worst drought in Texas history,
and after missing the sight of rain, in who knows how long,
I am pretty excited!
Isn't it beautiful!?!
I think we have gotten about an inch so far!

Mia and Tilli and pretty happy about it too!
Don't we all get the best naps in the rain?
And after weeks of temps in the 100's, this is exciting to see too!
It's a great day in Texas y'all! ;)

Hope you're having a great Wednesday as well!

Summer break has started...

And I think the baby has taken over the living room! :)

I promise the living room doesn't normally look like this, but baby G is having a blast playing!

He is rolling sooo much now! We started with a smaller square blanketed area where G would play on his tummy, but more and more he was rolling everywhere, so we had to expand the play area!!!

After nap time, I'd better get this up before Daddy gets home! :)

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and Happy Father's Day!

It's that time! Lets ride the Train!!

It is time to hop aboard the Tuesday Train again!
Mix and mingle! Find new friends!

I have been so busy lately! The end of the year is such a busy time,
and as a teacher with a 7 month old,
it would be safe to say that I have felt a little overwhelmed!!

I have to give a special thanks to my Mama over at The House on the Corner
for helping me keep the Train posted!
You are the best! :)


The rules are easy!
Please follow the hosts, we are the first four entries!

and me!

It's a "Halfy" Birthday!!

Yep! That's right!! "halfy" birthday is what it says!

Oh yea, just like it sounds, it's a 'half of a year' birthday!! :)

Okay, I want to start with a disclaimer! We did ask for no presents to be brought and there was no birthday song sung!

We are just a little excited to be parents :) hehe
and we thought this would be a fun way to get our families together again!

We ALL haven't been together at the same time since our wedding so a "halfy birthday" with a little BBQ and cake sounded perfect!

My family came over a little early to help with the cooking.

Aunt Katy helped with the beans.

While Honey decorated the cake.

Aunt Megan made the deviled eggs... and baby G wanted to help!

The men worked on the grill, it got a little smokey! Haha

Then everyone came over!
It was great seeing everyone! It has been almost 3 years since our wedding when wee had both sides together!

And the guys played washers

The we had cake! Baby G really wanted to grab it! He's gotten very grabby lately!

My favorite thing was the onsie I made for G man to wear!

Halfy birthday baby boy!!
