Very Thankful to Rachel and JD

We made it home safe from North Carolina. Something we were looking forward to so much, came and went too fast! Greyson absolutely LOVED his first airplane ride, all went smoothly. We got to see the Army base that JD works at. I was impressed with all the humongous airplanes, oh yeah and the hot military men every where you look. I couldn't believe how many there were. I have been clueless about military life.

The best part about our trip was going to Carolina Beach, what a beautiful place! Our kids had a blast. Rachel let me sit on the beach alone the morning we left and I really enjoyed it. I spent some time with God that morning, just praising Him and thanking Him. What a gorgeous place to be. Our weather was perfect, not too hot or cool. I hope we can do this again some day!

Thanks so much Rachel and JD for opening up your home to us and letting us share it with you for a week. We really enjoyed the time we spent with you guys.

Audrey Shae

One of my closest friends had her precious baby girl last week after having 3 boys, she finally got her baby girl. You can only imagine how much pink she has at her house finally getting the little girl she's always wanted. She weighed 6 lbs 15 oz, 19 1/2 inches long. She's nothing short of BEAUTIFUL! Today Greyson and I went and saw her for the first time. She was breath taking and Greyson was so gentle with her. Angie showed him her baby feet and never should have, he wouldn't stop asking her to unzip her sleeper. Here are some pictures of the little princess.

Branson, MO

I am blessed with a really awesome friend named Angie. We grew up together and her parents have an amazing cabin in Branson, MO that they let people stay at for nothing at all. You almost feel guilty for not paying anything for it because it should be about $300 a night, haha. Carlos, Greyson and I reserved it for last weekend. I drove down not knowing what to expect not ever being there or seeing any pics or anything. As soon as we pulled up to the house Carlos and I were in awe. Immediately I got my camera out and started snapping pictures to make people jealous, I mean to share with everyone. We got there Friday night about 6pm and grilled some burgers and pretty much just lounged around. Carlos fell asleep on the couch watching Greyson's cartoons and me and Greyson went downstairs. There was a playroom for kids with tons of toys and a living room where I layed on the couch and read a magazine. I could tell right there it was gonna be a nice little trip. Greyson was a little uneasy about being down in the playroom. I think he thought I was gonna leave him down there and go back upstairs. Out of the corner of my eye I could see him keep raising up to see if I was still on the couch. Every time he saw me, he'd say, "Love you Mom." It was so cute.

Saturday morning we woke up early and went to Hwy 76, the Branson strip, and ate breakfast at Shoney's. After breakfast we went to a strip mall and did a little shopping. I got the cutest purse! Around noon we decided to Ride the Ducks. What a fun time that was! Greyson drove the boat, he thought he was hot stuff. When we got done with that we went to the Kirby VanBurch magic show, or as Greyson calls him Crabby BanBurch...and he's serious. Greyson had his head buried in my chest most of the show. I guess it was a mixture of the theatre being dark, loud music and girls getting cut in half that did it. Around 7 we went back to the cabin and grilled again then chilled on the couch again. Sunday morning we cleaned the place up and left to go home. We hope to get to go back again some day. I am willing to pay for kidding. Oh yeah all these pictures were taken with my cell phone. I charged my battery for my digital camera all week only to forget the SD card in my laptop at home. SO NOT SURPRISED.

Taking him on his first airplane

I am so excited and scared all at the same time that Greyson will be flying for the first time in a few days. We are going to North Carolina to visit some friends. It's coming up so fast and I have nothing ready. I can't find my camera, don't make me go buy a new one..haha. The forecast is showing thunderstorms every single day we are there, but I am past being sad about that. I am just excited about the trip and feel blessed to be able to go. I can't wait to see Greyson's face just seeing the airplane. I have been told to make sure he's chewing bubble gum for his ears. When I was a kid I hated that about flying. Mom and I used to go to Chicago a lot to visit some friends. I will be sure to post about it when we get back from our trip.
