Ruby’s Party

Ruby had a great time at her birthday party.  She loved having so many of her friends around her.  She loved wearing her new sassy shirt and skirt, too.  She even slept in them and has the outfit on today.  Oh, the battles I choose not to fight.   We had the party at EARTH, PAINT AND FIRE.  The kids […]

Who wet your bed?

OK, this is a new level of hilarious for me!  Mack drinks a ton of liquid each day.  Last night we had a little party for Ruby, and I gave Mack numerous juice boxes because that is what kept him occupied and sitting down.  Having Mack running around in a Pottery store was much like a bull in a china […]

THE Brown Flip-Flops

Molly has had an obsession with flip-flops.  Now she will wear almost any kind of flip-flop, but BROWN flip-flops are what she has wanted.  She wears palm tree blue ones, hot pink beach ones, purple ones, clear ones with big jewels on them….not to mention the other types of shoes around here….. BUT this morning at the park there was […]

Yummy “Cup-capes”

Mack was funny eating his cupcake(s) the other night.  I just couldn’t quit taking pictures of him…maybe it is because I am trying to eat better.  It isn’t going all that great, but I am trying, so I just used my time admiring how he was eating instead of stuffing my own face.  Do y’all do that?  Watch other people […]

Sweet Molly and Mack

Just wanted to mention that Molly has been so wonderful the past two and a half days (but who is counting?!).  Seriously, I should have mentioned that she was so sweet to Ruby on her birthday in so many ways.  I am proud of her for letting Ruby have her time to shine on her birthday!  That isn’t always easy, but she pampered her and let Ruby feel special.  Just thought I should mention it…..And Molly has told me she loved me about a thousand times in the past couple of days.  She loves me.  How sweet. And tonight after being away from each other for two and a half hours, Mack kept saying to me, “Wid me”  I didn’t know what he meant at first, but then realized he wanted me to sit down with him.  When I told him I would sit with him, he started telling me to “walk, Mama, walk.”  I think he was saying, ‘hurry up and get over here and sit down with me!’  I sat down with him, and he was happy as could be.  Sweet kiddos.

Monkey Joes and McDonalds…

How can you go wrong with these two places and five kids?  We didn’t.  Molly made it clear from the beginning that she did not want Monkey Joe to talk to her, touch her or even look at her!  I told her that between myself and Mrs. Mary, Monkey Joe wouldn’t get near her (and then I prayed that there […]

RUBY’S 5th BIRTHDAY!

(Here I go again, taking pictures of pictures….)  This is what I was doing five years ago!  Ruby Elizabeth was born weighing 8 lbs, 5 oz.  Sweet little booger that started the process of completely rockin’ my sleep world.  And I remember many things that day…not the least of which are realizing I wanted the medicine before the medicine before […]
