About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Aleck Update 2:30 a.m.

After 8 days of intermittent fever, we made our second visit to the pediatrician. Aleck has an ear infection and bronchitis. He started zithromax today and for the first time in 8 days, he is not running a fever at 2:30 a.m. How do I know this? Because I have been up around that time for the the last eight days. Praise God, I think AJ is finally on the road to recovery.

Now, if I could just go back to sleep.

In trouble with the law at 18 months

I was in AJ's room tonight rocking him before bedtime and I heard a knock at the front door. I heard mumbling, followed by Tom coming into AJ's room and saying, "You and AJ need to come out in the living room a minute to see the the police officer". Excuse me, "What?!!!"

Of course, with the chasing AJ around getting him ready for bed, I had forgotten that 20 minutes earlier AJ had picked up Tom's key chain and pushed the panic button on the alarm system. I expected a call from Hawke Security, but I certainly did not expect two officers to show up at our door. Sorry, Hurst taxpayers.

The funny thing is that Tom didn't even know how to activate the panic button on the key chain. Leave it to a toddler to just start pushing buttons.

Prayer Request

Please lift Aleck up in your prayers. He has been sick since last Friday. We saw his pediatrician and he diagnosed AJ with hand-foot-and-mouth disease, a virus that causes fever, diarrhea, vomiting, blisters on the mouth, hands and feet. Aleck has been running a fever, off and on, for 7 days. Please pray for healing.

Happy 21st Birthday Eryn!

We celebrated Eryn's 21st birthday tonight. I can't believe we have a 21 year-old daughter. It just seems like yesterday that I was celebrating my 21st birthday. Boy, time flies.

We had ice cream pie for desert. Yummy!!! Unfortunately, AJ went to bed early so he didn't get to help Eryn blow out her candles.

Eryn, you are the best daughter in the whole wide world. We are so proud of you and we love you very much!
