I haven't posted in a while because my in-laws are visiting and I haven't had any time to do much of anything. They've both been really helpful around the house & have been keeping me company (which I will miss when they leave). I'm really happy that this Christmas will be extra special because they'll be here to share it with us. Some pics from this month....
Crazy busy weekend. First, my oldest son turned 15!! I can't believe how quickly time has passed & that he's growing into a man. He is such a great boy & I'm thankful for how sweet & considerate he is. Not too many 15 year olds cut the grass, cook, clean, & even change diapers without complaining. He's gonna make a great husband one day =) Today we went to Lowe's Kid's Clinic & Evan made a train....he really loves going there! Later on, we went to our new favorite park. Very peaceful there & the kids get a kick out of the fish that are constantly jumping out of the water. Gonna have a busy week too with stuff from work and having to prepare for some visitors on Saturday. It never ends.........
Just spent 5 fun days with my little sister!! So sad that she had to leave so soon but so thankful for the little time we had together. Funny how it seems like time has never passed when we're together. Like we're little girls again laughing at everything & being silly. I'm also thankful for all of God's protection & blessings.....for my husband & handsome, healthy boys. Thankful for my awesome family, my home, my job, my health, & believe it or not....all of the obstacles I have overcome that have made me wiser & stronger. Looking forward to the start of another new year, another chance at a clean slate =)
My sister is visiting until Wednesday & we haven't seen her in so long. Really happy that she's here & enjoying some family time. My ribs hurt from so much laughing but that's a good thing.....I definitely needed some laughs =) Poor hubby has been missing out because of work. The boys are so excited too & Evan asked her to please never leave =( Good times....
When Titi surprised him when he got home home from school
Had a busy but great weekend. The boys had fun making a periscope at Lowes Build and Grow kid's clinic. Evan is becoming a pro at using a hammer! lol Gio also finished his science project on Hydroponics (with tons of help of course). Just relaxed at home today & hubby made a delicious roast with mashed potatoes & broccoli. About to watch the Walking Dead now, a new zombie series that my husband is crazy about. Hoping this week goes by fast.
The boys hydroponic setup after 8 plants were transferred
Spent a lot of time today watching old videos of when Evan was first born. I really wish that I could hit the rewind button & go back to several moments that passed us by way too quickly. It was cute to see how funny he was even as a baby...he definitely inherited my silliness & sense of humor. lol So blessed that God chose me to be his mother and I love him to the moon and back <3
We got this beautiful Pumpkin Prayer from church....
Dear Jesus, as I carve my pumpkin, help me pray this prayer: Open my mind so I can learn about YOU (Cut the top off the pumpkin) Take all my sins & forgive the wrong that I do (Cut out the inside) Open my eyes so Your love I will see (Cut eyes shaped like hearts) I'm sorry for the times I've turned my nose up at what You've given to me (Cut a nose in the shape of the cross) Open my ears so Your word I will hear (Cut ears shaped like the Bible) Open my mouth to tell others You're near (Cut the mouth in the shape of a fish) Let Your light shine in all I say and do! (Place a candle inside & light it) Amen.
