Aleck and Tom were playing Battleship this week. Ella was using Tom as a pillow as she browsed through her Barbie Lego catalog. Trying to be relative in the conversation she said, “I want to play chess.” That sweet little girl has no idea how to play chess. Her big brother does though, and she was trying to impress him and contribute to the conversation. I love that she wants to be like her big brother. I’m thankful that my kiddos get along so well, and I’m thankful for a life full of these sweet little moments.
- 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!

As Aleck and Ella play with Legos, I can’t help but smile with a full heart when I hear conversations that go something like this.
Aleck: What powers do you want?
Ella: Oh, oh! Can I have ice powers?
Aleck: Oh, sure.
Aleck: Do you want to fly or go on my ship?
Ella: On your ship.
Aleck: Well come on. What are you waiting for?

Ella and Tom attended St. Vincent’s Daddy Daughter Dance. Not only am I one proud mommy, but I have also been the photographer for the last three years. I am the only mommy there and it is such a blessing to get a sneak peak at how much fun the girls have with their daddy.
I love this picture.

My goodness, my sweet little girl is growing up way too fast!
