The complete me in every way possible. They are the reason I get up each and every day. They bring smiles to my face, joy to my soul, and my cup truly runneth over! Even on the hairiest of days, I would trade the chaos for anything. I think sometimes it's the chaos that keeps me sane!
More then a sister. She's a friend, she's a support, she's a prayer partner, she's an inspiration, she's a true reminder that there are good people in the world. I love this dear woman more then she will ever, ever know. It is my prayer that God will continue to watch over her life, guide, and direct her paths. I know that He has something truly spectacular planned for her life. Jess, I love you so very much. I'm proud of you and all you've accomplished.
Then there were four. When we became a family of four, it wasn't easy. My mom did everything within her power to keep our lives as normal as possible. She wasn't able to give us everything we wanted, but we were clothed, fed, and a roof over our head. Looking back now, I had more then I needed. God knew that the three of us would need a strong mother. Someone with compassion, and a hard worker. She was all that and more, and still is. Our mother is truly the back bone of this family. She's my best friend, the one I run to when my heart is broken, the one I seek advice from when I'm not sure where to turn with the kids, and the one I still call on a daily basis just to say hello. I thank God each and every day for this woman. I thank Him that she taught us right from wrong, instilled in us the values we would need to be the people we are today. I love you mom!
Jason and Megan, two of the most go with the flow folks I know. Jason is the big brother that never really had the chance to speak thanks to me and Jessica. He's quiet, he's humble, and he has a heart for giving. He's always willing to help whenever he can. Megan, his girlfriend, is a lot like him. I think she's even more quiet then he is. They both love the boys so much, and I appreciate all they do when they are around. People don't realize how much just keeping them entertained helps me out! :) I love you guys.
Just had to throw these last three in. I love the look on Carter's face. The last one, of the phone booth. On the way home from North Carolina, we stopped at a rest stop and when we got out Carter says, "Mom, I want to call Dad from that funny phone!" I couldn't help but chuckle, and think to myself that when he has kids phone booths will for sure be a thing of the past!
I am a wife & mother. My husband is Travis and we have two beautiful boys, Carter and Tucker, that bring us more joy than we ever dreamed possible!These three consume my life and I am so grateful that God has allowed me to be a part of their lives. Travis is an amazing husband. He deals with my moody self with no complaints! Carter is a loving, happy, and on the go six year old. He makes us smile regardless of the situation. Tucker is our shy guy, but don't let the shyness fool you he's a firecracker underneath! His giggle is contagious, his eyes sparkle, and he gives the sweetest kisses! My family is pretty much my life, all the other stuff are extra blessings. I started this blog as a reminder to myself the days I wish to remember.
I started blogging in April of 2008. I wasn't really sure of what I was doing when I started this whole thing or whether or not I'd even stick with it. Looking back over the past year, I am so grateful that I jotted down the little memories that make up our life. The days pass so quickly I don't want to forget the funny little things that my children say or the moments that brought smiles to my face, or the bumps in the road that made my faith stronger. Blogging has become a part of my routine. I enjoy looking back and reading things that happened weeks back, and also sharing what's going on in our lives with my family & friends.

I thank God for my husband, Travis, each and every day. I love the way he puts up with my quirky ways and loves me regardless. He is a true blessing, and my life would not be complete without him. I LOVE YOU TRAV!
Our little cowboy
My oldest son, Carter. Six years old and full of energy and spunk. Each day is bright and fresh with this child, full of questions and a little heart that over flows with love. He's funny, sweet, and brings more smiles to my life then I ever dreamed possible!!! I LOVE YOU MORE CARTER!!!
Cowboy in training....
My little Tucker, a.k.a Tucker Bear, is such a little firecracker!! He is shy at times but when it's just us at home, expect the unexpected!!! He loves to sing. He loves to do whatever his Daddy and brother are doing. His eyes sparkle like stars and he gives the sweetest kisses. He's the life of the party, too! Twinkle, twinkle... I love you!
