My Wonderful Mother's Day

(The cake Moriah made me--yummy)

(Look we match!!)

I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! It all started Saturday night when my wonderful hubby took me out to the Botanical Gardens for a Moonlight walk. The gardens had a special event going on with a concert and candle lit trails. It was wonderful! The moon was full and the gardens smelled splendid. We couldn't really see much on the trail, but the flowery smell was wonderful. While we listened to the concert we shared a glass of Chardonay. Then later shared a strawberry milkshake. When we came back home that evening, the kids were all tucked in bed and my house was clean, along with all my laundry folded.

The following morning I slept in and woke up to kisses from all my babies and cards with words of love. My oldest daughter Moriah had baked me a cake (pictured above) while we were on our date. My oldest son cooked me an omelet for breakfast and my hubby bought me Barnie's Coffee. Then later that afternoon, Donnie and the four oldest children, picked me wildflowers and walked into my bedroom where I was nursing the baby, saying "Happy Mother's Day"--with singing voices. The bouquet is beautiful. I really felt so appreciated by each one of my guys and gals. Hope your Mother's Day was just as wonderful.

Hello- You have a nice family. I found you through other's blogs. I saw your little family thing at the bottom and put it on my page. How fun. Also I love the chore card idea. I think the Duggar family does that(if you know who they are) Where can I find the cards?

You crack me up!! Yep, I'm pretty easy but I don't lack discipline. Does that make sense? I do try to find a semi-normal balance!!

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
