Yesterday is a day that all of us as Americans will always remember in our hearts, I can tell you exactly where I was the moment that I first heard the news. But to me the moment of where I was is nothing compared to all of the pain the families from 9/11 have experienced as well as the soilders families that are conitnuing to loose their loved ones overseas. These are the victims and families that we continue to remember in our hearts, forever.

9-11-2011 was also my 24th {whoa} birthday. We celebrated my birthday by having lunch with Curtis our fand it was amily next door for lunch, banana pudding and gifts. They were all so very sweet to me. I'm not sure if I could ask for anything better than that --- but the Lord had big plans on my birthday for my family!!! My sweet Husband gave me a pandora bracelet with the everlasting love charm. I absolutely love it! =) We have a doctors appointment tomorrow and a 3d ultrasound so I cannot wait to be able to get out of this bed and wear it!
Tina and Ronnie gave me this Juicy Couture gift set, which is Heavenly. Oh my, I cannot wait to wear it too! They also gave me a huge stack of wedding photos along with a photo album (Thank you Amanda!) I cannot wait to put them all together for everyone to look at. These were all such a thoughtful gifts!!

Not to mention, my other huge birthady gift!!

I became an Aunt!!
As you can see my nephew Trace Alexander made his appearance in the afternoon after my sister woke with complication early in the morning. He was not expected to arrive until Oct 26th, so he was a little over 33 weeks gestastion, but boy is he a strong little fella!

Look at how big those hands are!! I think he may just be a UK basketball player in the future, his parents would totally love that =)

He is in the NICU having some help with his breathing, although my sister just sent me a text saying they have taken his C PAP off to see how he does, but so far so good! What a blessing! She is also going to get to hold him for the first time this afternoon!! I ask that you all continue to remember my sister as she recovers, Alex, and Trace! I cannot wait to meet this little guy! Him and Bryar are for sure keeping us all on our toes already, I can only imagine how it will be in a few years with them running around! =)

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.
