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!

Almost Four


It is so hard to believe that you will be four next month.  Oh, how I wish I could slow the passing of time.  You are growing up way too fast.

  • You love to play dress up and are even taking Kids Stage, a theater class, at school.  You have the following costumes:  Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett, the bounty hunter from Star Wars,  Spiderman, Superman, a pirate, and a knight.  Occasionally, you wear Ella’s Dora the Explorer costume, but you usually stick to the masculine costumes, which are sometimes paired with plastic high heel shoes.
  • I love it when you start sentences with, “When I was a boy…..” as if you are all grown up.
  • You wake us most mornings requesting “a nana and duice on da towch”.
  • You prefer routines but can be flexible if the need arises.
  • You have such a tender and sensitive heart.
  • You are developing quite the sense of humor and I find myself laughing at the funny things you say and do frequently.
  • You told me the other day, “Ella’s my favorite dirl”.
  • You know the names of many colors in Spanish.
  • You can spell your name and we are working on learning to write it.
  • You amaze me at how fast you are learning and you have a thirst for knowledge.
  • You love people and never meet a stranger.  When we go to the playground, you walk up to strangers and have conversations like they are old friends.  I love your outgoingness.
  • Your favorite show is Imagination Movers.  I’m so thankful you are over Calliou.
  • You weigh 39 lbs.  You have had some digestive problems lately that have affected your appetite and I think you are a bit on the skinny side.  We will find out when we go to your four year-old checkup next month.  You wear size 4 jeans but can but can still wear size 3 shorts.  You just moved up to a size 5 shirt.
  • Your favorite toys continue to be trains, trains, trains.  You spend many days dressed up in one of your costumes while you play with trains and car.
  • You like to draw do craft projects, but you have a hard time sitting still for too long.
  • You love school and are going three days a week, but sometimes ask to go on your days off.
  • You love your teacher and I frequently here, “Mrs. Jordan….…”.
  • You may be trying to give up your nap, but will fall asleep if I put you in my bed and lay down with you.  This is a great excuse for Mommy to get a nap!  Bedtime is at 8:00 p.m., but sometimes you are still awake until 8:30 p.m. and on rare occasions later.  You wake around 6:30 a.m. and you are a morning person.  You must have gotten that from Daddy.

Aleck, Mommy and Daddy love you so very much.
