The Best 1st Mother's Day!

I had the BEST first Mother's Day!! We got ready yesterday morning to go and worship our great heavenly father! We left church and went for a family picnic at the jungle gym! I so wish I had my camera because we put anden in the baby swing and he looved it. He laughed so hard! We all started swinging and going down the slide( which Anden loved too lol) and it felt great to do something as a famly. I was fixing something to eat and I noticed Anden and Aubrey in the laundry room floor, so I got curious and went to sneek a peak and found aubrey and Anden making this for me :) It was the sweetest thing ever. Thanks aubrey and anden you made my day soo special!!! I love you guys more than ALL the jelly beans in the world!!!!:o)

My Love Bug

Please Help!

This past weekend has been a devastated one. My heart goes out to all the people who lost their homes and loved ones. We experienced rain like we have never seen before in our state's history. We have had 5 months worth of rain in 2 days. Streets are closed, rescue teams are out in full force, homes have been lost and even a portable classroom from a nearby high school went sailing down I-24. The Cumberland River crested at its highest level in over 80 years! People drowned. Billions of dollars in damage occurred. Did you know that it is the single largest disaster to hit Middle Tennessee since the Civil War?? So many said that they wanted to help but didn't know how. Well I so get that because that is how I felt. I think what I have learned through this is you help how you can. For some that will be helping out physically with removing debris and clearing out homes, for others it will be donating financially, others it may be opening their homes for a family to have shelter. Since we live about 2 hours away, the only we I feel like I can help is to donate money or take up supplies to send in for the victims. So many have lost their homes and had no flood insurance because they saw no need in it withnot being in a flood zone. Can you imagine loosing your home and not having any insurance to rebuild it and still owe on a morgage??? You can text "redcross" to 90999 to donate $10 and it will be billed to your cell phone.

Come one now, I know there's a reason why this great state is called the volunteer state. Let's come together and help these families in need!

In the video you will see Opryland Hotel, Oprymills Mall, The Colliseum where the Titans play and the Grand Ole Opry.

What a beautiful Day!

Anden and I had a wonderful day today! It was so pretty outside so after we got our stuff done at home we went to vist Granna for a little bit. Anden loves going places. As soon as I say, "wanna go bye bye?" he goes to pieces! I took some recent pictures of him today with my moms camera and she edited them for me:) I looove taking pictures of Anden as you can tell lol

He is soo active now! He tries to crawl and grab his food out of my hands lol When I give him his sippy cup with juice and put it to side to give him a bite of food he tries to grab his sippy cup lol It is the cutest thing ever!

I was sitting in a chair watching a baseball game and I was looking the other way. Well when I turned back around anden had pulled my sonic cup out of its holder and had the straw in his mouth trying to get a drink!!! How in the world he knew what to do with it is beyond me but I couldn't stop laughing!

Hopefully I will get time to blog soon! Take care everybody!

P.s. OH! Today my sister shawna found out shes having a boy! She has to be on complete bed rest because she is 50% effaced and thebaby is already head down. She is 21 weeks so please pray the baby doesnt try to come early! Thanks!
