B's cousin J & J had their baby boy...T.K. we will call him. I saw him through a window at the hospital but cannot wait to get a hold of those kissable cheeks!!!
Nothing is like kissing a new born baby. That sweet innocent smelling bundle of Joy!!
He was 7 pounds 4oz. 20 inches
LOOK at ALL that HAIR!!!!
The nurses could not resist they gave him a mohawk!!! How cute is HE!!!
Love that baby burrito look on his face......HELLO PEOPLE I CANNOT MOVE!!!
This is B's aunt & uncle's FIRST grandbaby....can you tell!! I saw this picture and got chills.
They are so happy for their daughter and son-in-law. We are too!!
Congrats!!! We know you will be the best parents ever!
God has truely blessed you!!

I recently purchased a few magazines to read the story. People I hear is the "real story". I read it and it is just so sad that a TV show can ruin a family who seemed to be so strong it their beliefs and faith. Honestly that is just how the devil works his powers.
I am reminded regularly how I am a lot like Kate....from my husband. Although he also reminds me that the way she treat her husband is NOT how I treat him. But the organized and routine side of her. How she likes everything in it's place and loves to take kids to fun places and spend quality time with them.
I feel as if we all loose track of time so quickly and it can put you in a complete tail-spin when you are not putting God first in ALL things. Even though the sextuplets had a great birthday party and it was well planned and organized- was there Love and Peace there? I did not see it.
I really hope this is just a season of change for them- I really wish they could hang it up and call it quits to save a marriage. I would hate for the kids to see this unfold on TV for the world to see.
I wonder if they have seen FIREPROOF?? If not I think Kirk Cameron and his fine little self needs to personally deliver it to the family. Would it not be a great thing for them to get back together and go to church and everything be mended. Just as the movie we watched this weekend Marley & Me said " you don't end it....you mend it."
If you have not seen FIREPROOF.......go beg, borrow or steal (okay maybe not steal then you would be on TV yourself) 19.99 to watch it!! It will be the BEST money you have EVER spent....EVER!!! Not just for married people.....for people in general.
I really pray for their marriage to make it.

This weekend we ordered crawfish from a local store and we decided to eat out on the back porch. Seeing that the ONLY time it has ever been used to eat at is usually a birthday party. We enjoyed it- think we have started something new! The boys enjoyed it even more than we did. They could not wait to get back to playing. When I drove to town to pick up the crawfish- B turned his back for a "moment" (that is all it takes) and a mud puddle was attacked with great force!! That is all I need to say. Boys!!

T has noticed Fire in peoples mouth?? SMOKERS!!!
He refers to call it "fire" because he doesn't know that they are called cigarettes. The other day he was playing and had something hanging out of his mouth, it fell out. He then said "oh man I dropped my fire." I sat down with him and we had a detailed conversation about "fire".
I really did not know what to say other than what the bible has to say?? I just told him that when you put things like "fire" in your mouth it hurts your body. Then I told him that God created our bodies and does not want us to hurt our bodies.
The next day we were driving through town and he said very upset "MAMA THOSE GIRLS IN THE CAR HAVE FIRE IN THEIR MOUTH!!!" Sitting at the Red light I just explained to him that just because we do something does not mean everyone believes the same. Then he told me it was OK if he had fire in his mouth when he grows up, because he wants to be a construction worker or a truck driver( the truck driver who lives at our house does not smoke??) and they have fire in their mouth. I once again told him how it harms our body and what God thinks about that.
I know that this is part of raising children and teaching them. I guess as an adult and knowing better I did not realize how many people in person and on t.v. smoke. Andy Griffith for Pete's sake was smoking on his black and white t.v. show the other day. I thought that show was as clean as it gets??
I feel like I am constantly having this conversation non-stop with him. Every time we turn around there is someone else who has fire in their mouth. If you find a big enough bubble to fit all of my family in- Please let me know! Otherwise do you have any suggestions to conversations about talking with you children about "things others may do, but we don't do in our lives."

This is the work of Our Little Beavers.....
While I was expecting C and we did the "move" from T's room to C's room. I looked at the teeth marks. In disgust I said "I think I am gonna sand this down and re-stain it" My precious father-in-law said in his sweet soft voice. "Those are priceless teeth marks, one day you will wish you still had them!" Enough said, I kept it the same. Now there are just added marks. What a mouth look at those marks on the side???
This is a bed that converts to a toddler bed. For years we will see the work of our "little beavers" and those teeth might get knocked out or just fall out. Then they might be covered with braces one day. Then they will be grown and not even eating in our house anymore. But you can bet I am hanging on to this priceless piece of wood.

He is such a hard worker. He is gone away from us a lot, but no matter how tired he is he always likes to take time for his most important jobs- Husband & Daddy!
As he proceeded to sit in front of the computer he said "how do you turn it on?" Yes he did!
Then I googled Trick my Truck apparently there is a Kenworth with a certain type of bumper. fender, stack, paint job...I really don't know what he liked the best about the truck.
Then as I proceeded to fold laundry as he drooled all over the computer at chrome and trucks. His next question floored me.... " hey what is faw-q" I said "EXCUSE ME?" surprised and confused by what he just said. And as he uncontrollably laugh he said this and pointed to the letters on the screen- FAQ! Otherwise known as Frequently Ask Questions. The rest of that conversation is was pretty much laughter, snorting laughs and gasping for air! We laughed until we cried. I love those silly moments together- I will cherish them always!!

My Cup is Overflowing with Joy and Happiness....
For Years my husband and I wanted children so bad, it hurt at times. We lost a baby along the 4 year journey. Seems that if you are not a mother of a physical child on Earth- you are not honored as a mother?? I have never felt that way. I have felt as if I have been a mother always even if my first two babies are in heaven. Regardless of a mistake of mine.....God does not make mistakes. He has Grace for those who do.
Well, for years it has been hard to attend Mother's Day services. Yes, the past 4 years have been better. I was 6 months pregnant one year, the last 3 I have had living babies to celebrate with me. This year tops them ALL!!
The church my husband grew up in and we attended our first 4 married years together, is a traditional southern baptist church. FULL of Wonderful People!! They honor each woman with at flower- then go through the Mother's oldest, youngest, most children.... and so on. Over the last 3 years we have not been there for Mother's Day nor did we attend a church that honored Ladies in the way.
For year's this moment on this special day I would have to literally choke back tears! Seeing all the mother's get a flower.
This moment this year brought tears of JOY to my eyes.....I got my FLOWER!!
My precious 3 year old brought me this flower. Oh the Joy in my heart. To have a healthy child living on earth with us to bring us laughter, joy, and comfort after all those years.
Then we celebrated with family at my husband's aunt & uncles house. Here I am with my boys and our sweet niece A.G. I have two niece's they both are "my girls" I love girly stuff deep down inside- I absolutely LOVE to buy for girls!!! That is why God gave me Boys!!
For my present this year and the past few years. My awesome husband just tells me to go to the local florist/ nursery and pick out whatever for my flowerbeds & potted plants. I purchased a lot of flats and planted them in different planters on my porch. Here is one. I LOVE IT!!! .
My husband & the boys gave me a sweet card with puppies on it- T was so proud he picked it out himself he told me! He came home Friday after running a few errands with his daddy and immediately told me "we went somewhere and got you something, Daddy told me not to tell you and if you asked to say I cannot tell you- OK?" I then replied "where did you go?" (I know I am so mean--- temptation) He said "freddies?" I was thinking he must have to him some funny name so I would not catch on. I just left it at that- knowing I was getting a card!
I am so joyful and happy that this year was a great one- I hope you had a great Mother's Day too!! What did you get for gifts? How do you celebrate?
B' mom. She is a caring grandmother. She loves to laugh at the boys in there silliness. She is the best cook too!! I have been trying to perfect her recipes for years!! Still can't!! (and might I add the prettiest thing....we get asked if we are sisters! hahaha thanks!)
My mom. She is the best example to follow, as a stay-at-home mom for us. She was always there when we needed her. I have learned from example- "let the dust bunnies gather and cobwebs grow...for before you know your children are grown." She put US above everything and I am so glad she did!! She is the Best!!
Of course!! I LOVE my BOYS!! It took 4 years a lots of prayers to get T here. I never thought I would ever be a mother. And by God's Grace and Blessings LOOK at ME NOW!!
I dedicate this post to the babies I have never met....5-10-95 & 7-03-03... I will see you in heaven one day and get to hold you then.... I promise....Until then...Mama Loves You!!
