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!

Fall Party at St. Vincent’s

Aleck had a fall party today at St. Vincent’s.  When I told Aleck that Mommy was coming to help with the party, he was so excited.  I was so proud of how well behaved he was.  He ran up to me when I first got there, but then he went and sat down on his name for circle time while Charlotte’s mom, Amy, read the book The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything.Fall Party 2010 St. Vincent

We decorated miniature pumpkins and played a pumpkin bowling game.  I overhead Aleck proudly telling his friends, “My mommy made that,” referring to the bowling pins decorated to look like pumpkins and it made my heart melt. DSC_2906 Fall Party 2010 St. Vincent

We had a great lunch of sandwiches cut into pumpkin shapes followed by the most adorable cupcakes with a waffle cone hat.  Aleck took the waffle cone off his cupcake and stuffed the cupcake in the cone then ate it like it was an ice cream cone.  Yummy!Fall Party 2010 St. Vincent

I made gift bags for the class.  Thanks, Joni, for letting me raid your stash of Stampin Up supplies.  


Tonight as I was putting Aleck to bed, we talked about the party.  With the sweetest smile on his face, Aleck said, “Mom, I so pwoud of you for hepping my fwiends make punkins aday.” 

I am so thankful for these sweet memories and that Aleck has an amazing teacher, Mrs. Jordan, who loves him and takes such great care of my little man.
