Four years ago I taught 2nd graders and had for five years. For now the Lord has me staying home with my babies. I am a believer in Jesus Christ. I have been married for 8 years to my best friend who just happens to be a football coach. We have four precious baby girls who keep us very busy. I love to spend time with family, craft, bake, cook, watch football, and whatever else comes up. I am hoping to start up a baking business with cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. I hope you enjoy reading about our life as much as I am enjoying blogging about it!

Celery...and More Celery!

On Thanksgiving last year I couldn't get enough of the celery on the crudite platter.  I mean seriously I think I ate a whole head of celery all by myself.  I kept telling everyone that it was the best celery I had ever eaten.  Literally I was hovering over the plate grabbing one stick after another.  Actually I probably had another in my hand before I had the one in my mouth chewed up.  That night when everyone sat around the table and ate leftovers, what do you think I was doing??!!  I was eating the rest of the celery.  I think I even saved a stick to eat after my leftover piece of pie.  I'm not kidding!  It was ridiculously delicious celery!!!!  

A few weeks after that I found out I was pregnant... with two babies!  THAT'S WHY THAT CELERY WAS SO STINKIN' GOOD!

Everytime I look at celery I think about this.  I laugh and then my eyes bug out of my head thinking about laying on the sonogram table and seeing TWO heartbeats! 

This Thanksgiving I am sure I will indulge in celery.  I can't promise that I will eat it with as much passion as I did last year but I will eat it.  I will laugh and then I will smile and think about my Twinny Twin Twins!  I will think about all that God has done in the last year in our lives.  I will think about all that we have learned.  I will think about all the tears we shed and all the prayers we prayed.  I will think about ALL that God has blessed us with.  It all has been soooo good!  So much has been hard and pressed us deep into the Lord but it has all been good!  I'm so thankful for WHERE HE HAS US! 

So, if God wants to use some amazing stalks of celery to make me think about all our many blessing and what we can be thankful for I will go with it.  Celery...I am so Thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!

A Ballerina, A Peacock, and 2 Things

Halloween 2013
A few months ago I asked Adda what she wanted to dress up as for Halloween.  She said a ballerina!  We have nothing in our house that is dance/ballet related.  Luckily, my cousins little girl is in ballet and she let us barrow a costume they used for a recital.  Of course Adda thought it was an amazing costume.  She twirled and spun around every time we put it on her!  I had the peacock costume that someone gave me.  Adda never fit in it so it has not been used.  Ella wanted to wear it!  I dressed the twins up as Thing 1 and Thing 2.
She even got to wear a little makeup!
Adda with the Things!

The day of Halloween was the first day Ella started getting hives from her penicillin breakout.  Gonzo had a JV game that night and I needed to stay home with Ella so some friend of ours took Adda trick-or-treating.  Thank you Kaeley and Teresa!  She was over the moon that she got to go with you guys!  

I did finally talk Ella into putting her costume on and walking around our cul-de-sac.  Just as we were finishing Adda came home.  She walked to a few houses with us!  

The poor peacock had a busted lip too!

The Things are asleep!

I had two red bows to put in their wigs and forgot.  That would have totally made the costume!  I had plans to put it all back on them and add the bows for pictures and it still hasn't happened! 

I caught two smiles!  Sweet girls!!!

4 Months Old

The twins are 4 months!  Well, technically they are close to 5 months now!  I need to write this blog before they turn 5 months.  I also need to blog Halloween before Thanksgiving!  There are not enough hours in the day. 

They have had lots of first this month that have choked me up a bit.  Only for a moment, but I have had times that I am sad I won't do this again with another baby.  Believe me they have been fleeting thoughts!!!

When I try to get pictures of all 4 girls I usually end up taking about 50 and have to go back and delete over half of them and hope I get a good one.  When I went through these pictures I laughed at the faces I caught.  Very funny!  The gradual change in their faces is hilarious!
Not excited about this picture!

They are really good at saying "cheese"!

Now starting to get a little crazy!

Are you finished yet Mom?!!!



Claire has two teeth.  Chloe has one.  Chloe's second tooth is almost through.  They both got their first tooth on the exact same day!  They are both rolling all over the place.  Chloe is much more active than Claire most of the time.  Claire wants to be held more often then Chloe.  They are both drinking 6oz. five times a day.  At night they suck their thumb.  I haven't seen them do it during the day.  They both sleep 13 hours and take one 2-3 hour nap a day.  Honestly, they are the BEST babies!
