Since Ella was born, Aleck rarely gets time alone with Mommy. Today was our special day. Tom and Ella spent the morning inside, while Aleck and I worked in the yard weeding the beds. I thought I wouldn't get much done because I would have to keep him out of the street, but he didn't leave my side. Aleck was in heaven having my undivided attention. We hunted for earthworms and roly polys. Aleck liked the worms, but didn't want to touch them. He would let the roly poly crawl on his hand and squeal "it tickles". Being a mommy means seeing the world all over again through the curious eyes of a child.
- 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!
