Monday Memories

On Thursday my family and several other people from my small town always head down to Gatlinburg, TN for the weekend. This is my favorite time of the year, just for the honest fact that I love fall so much. Not to mention, I love the mountains any time of the year, it is simply the most peaceful place (that and the beach too). The ladies of the group always take one day to go shopping and we always find really great deals. I'm not so much excited for that this year as I am just having a few days away with the people that mean the most.

Mark, Charli Beth and I are leaving later than my family due to him working 24 hour shifts (boo to 24s.) so hopefully we will have an okay trip down and Charli will be able to take an afternoon nap. I need to make a list of what all to bring, even though it is only for a couple of days I always forget things.

I thought that I would share pictures from the past years so that whenever I get back I can compare them to now. I know she has grew a ton in the last year, but the pictures will be amazing to see =) I just can't get over the fact that this will be our 4th trip to the mountains together and our 4th Halloween...where has time gone??

1st year



That last picture cracks me up! Her eating a foot long corndog is seriously the best picture ever. I sadly have DOCJT in service in the morning a.k.a bordem but at least it will give me some extra hours for work. Then again, I may have to reschedule and do it later in the year if possible my babysitter just text me and said she will be out all week due to the flu. Oh my...Hope she gets better soon!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
