Railyn Michelle is Here!

This morning we were blessed to get a new niece. Railyn was born at 6 lbs 3 oz. She is beautiful with a lot of dark hair. My plan was to go tomorrow and see her but you know when I got that call I had to go kiss that baby. I am baby crazy, but apparently I am not the only one in my family. For those of you who know Mr Andy is FULL TIME energy but with the baby he was a sweet as could be and sat for SO long for him while he "held" her. It was amazing. Riley, Brianna and Kaite also got to hold her and were amazed how small she is. Big sister Abby made sure I knew it was her baby! She will be a good big sister. My sister is doing good and they are a cute family of 4. I have to say since this birth I have been fielding questions about just how those babies get out of there! Oh well no time like the present to be as honest as 4 can handle! WE love you Railyn!

A new niece- a blessing and what a cutie

Mother's Day

A picture worth a thousand words!

Trying to get a picture

Here is our attempt to get pictures. Normally I would not post this but I didn't even know it was on my camera until I downloaded pictures. Figure it shows the humanity of mothering!

Mothers Day Frame

Mothers Day is my favorite day. It is a day that if filled with simple things and does not include the rush that happens with holidays at the end of the year. It is the day that we work on the garden as a family and dream of what it will mean to our family in the near future. As one of my holiday traditions for mothers day I have a frame that captures a picture of Mom and kids as they change each year. This would be my first year with Andy at Mother's Day. This picture proved to be very tricky this year as no one really wanted to sit, or at least not to this person or that or whatever else was bugging them at that moment. We then would give our family a break and try my sisters who were here to visit. That too proved to be not the correct timing apparently. We would eventually get one many hours later, but it once again proved to me, that even though I think I am in control there are always many other hands in the pot at our house. These little angels of mine treated me very well this day with all their little gifts so carefully made. So even if the picture is not perfect in my heart all of my children are perfect to me.

May is bringing with it schedules that are crazy. I am having trouble keeping up! It is a time for spring concerts, field trips, end of the year awards assemblies and all that is involved in finishing up another school year. These years just fly by and my heart is always a little sad as we move from one grade to the next. We have had a very cool spring so far. It is nice even though I love that sun and its warmth. Part of the garden is planted and I am anxious to see those little leaves spring through the ground. Along with the new life of plants we are very anxious for the birth of my new niece or nephew to come. I can't wait. To hold a baby again! Love that!

Mommy's little loves!

Boy Scout Award Day

We had Riley's boy scout awards ceremony this last weekend. Boy Scouts has great lessons and values and Riley has loved it.


Everything in this house is used for many purposes-as in buckets for hats!
