Ghouls at Grassmere

Last Friday, Charli Beth, Mom and I headed to the Nashville zoo for their annual Halloween festivities. They close the zoo down early, put all of the animals to bed, set up 20 trick or treat stations, carnival area, hayride, and more. I have always wanted to take Charli to a Boo at the Zoo, so we randomly just got ready and left out that afternoon.We had a good time, and Charli really liked showing off her costume to everyone.

But have I mentioned that CB is kind of stuck up? Probably not, but this girl had other little ones saying "aww look at the princess" and she would just squish up her nose and look away, not giving them a Hi or Bye. Poor kiddos! We kept asking her why she wanted to act this a way to other children that were being friendly, to our response she said "I'm not a princess, I am cowgirl but they just keep calling me a princess."

Clearly, she is a cowgirl in her heart but a princess in costume... We walked around to the booths to give out candy, 20 stations - 1 piece of candy each. Nice! haha. Then we were able to ride the "scary-go-round", play games at the "carn-evil" and ride the hayride. I have to admit that unless you live in the area of Nashville, it is not worth the drive. But like I said, CB had fun and that is what counts!

I am also participating in Morgan's Mama Loves Papa link up of "30 days of Thankfulness" - each day I will post something new that I am thankful for...this could get interesting ;) baha! Link up along with her if you would like, I am sure she would love to have you!

Day #1

Best Friends.

Not that you could have been able to tell through anything on my blog but I've been going through something in the last week that has been simply, hard. Without the help from my besties there is no way in the world that I would be tearless with a smile on my face tonight. Each of these friends have helped in some journey throughout this crazy life of mine, I am stronger and better because of them. I am so very thankful for the friends that I have in my life and the ones that have already went to Heaven as well.

Today I honor a wonderful best friend of mine that is now in Heaven - Happy Birthday Jamie!
Megan, Me, Tara, Kevin (Jamie's Dad) and Jamie

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.
