ONE!!


An enormous 
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!
to the sweetest baby I know!

Ryan, 

You are seriously the sweetest baby we've had.  As long as you're fed and with your people you're a happy, content, snuggly, busy guy.  I know you haven't made it here on this blog very often, but I promise it's not because of a lack of love.  We adore you, your brother and sister adore you.  I really don't think you could be loved more.  

Happy birthday, my sweet Ry-guy (or Boo or Boozie.)

We love you to the moon and back!!

Mommy, Daddy, Bubba & Jen

P52:3 Broken Hearts





We are so excited that the third grade at LME (my elementary alma mater! :) has chosen to to collect items for BraveHEART Baskets as their service project.  Their teacher had told them all about Derrick and they were so excited to meet him!  It was such a special experience and I loved hearing Derrick raise awareness for CHD in his own special way.

And speaking of BraveHEARTS....it's that time of year again!  If you're local and free tomorrow morning, we'd LOVE for you to come have breakfast with us!

AND...today is national WEAR RED day!  Are you wearing red in honor/memory of someone?  If you are, share it!  It's the very best way to teach others about special hearts!

P52: 2 Compromise



Homeschooling isn't quite what I pictured it would be.  I love it, don't get me wrong. But we have days where I want to throw in the towel, grab a backpack and make a drop-off to the nearest elementary school!  Most days really are ok, but some are just...well, they're not good sometimes.  On occasion I have to use leverage to get the work done, and this week that was necessary.  D was stoked to do some work in his fort!  And if it wouldn't have taken up the entire space we would have left it there for a daily treat.  But life happens, and you have to walk through rooms, so forts can't always stay.  That's ok though, because it will hold excitement much longer...and maybe help us get through some more assignments!


This picture was taken this past weekend in our new "howse."  We were there cleaning up and decided that we would write this verse on the floor so it would always be in our home.  I absolutely love this picture, and I was going to use it for P52 this week but I couldn't come up with any words.  Then I remembered, sometimes pictures don't need words, they speak for themselves.

Project 52 : 1



I've missed being here.  Missed documenting the lives of my babes, missed taking tons of pictures, missed the therapy that blogging sometimes provided.  I'm attempting Project 52 again.  I did it several years ago, but like most things I start....well, it never got finished.  So, I'm pretending it's still the first week of January and this is my first week's post.  Because it's my blog and I can do that.  :)

I'm excited to bring this baby out of the dust.  I have TONS to share!
