Mad about you Monday

This is for Porter, he has been my little snugglebug the last couple of days and I love every minute of it, he has been so hard lately to try and be a good boy all the time, not just for Jana and at school but at home too. We play this little game back and forth I love you more than... and you fill in the blank it usually is things like I love you more than chocolate chip cookies, or star wars or legos, but today was so cute he said to me Mom I love you better than Miss Shelley!!!! (his teacher) and he was shocked by that and so was I because Miss Shelley's word is law at our house. So I was happy for at least one moment that he loved me more! Keep in mind this afternoon when I tell him to do his homework for the fifth time my status will fall.. Love you buddy!

Truly Awesome Tuesday x2

Okay I couldn't just do one truly awesome today first I got to say that today was truly awesome I don't care what your politics are it was truly awesome!! Just the process of passing the torch from one President to the next and the smoothness it has happened. And I was moved the speech of President Obama and I truly wish him much success and I hope that we can make a better future for our children.

Second on a much more trivial note, this lovely showed up at my house yesterday, we have decided to keep it. More to follow!!

Okay sorry to do another Brother but I have five and I have good reason because he has a birthday tomorrow. My brother Paul, he is awesome, he is one of those guys you love to hang out with, he is hilarious and easy going, no drama. He is twenty times smarter than he ever gives himself credit for. He has a tender heart and is so sweet to my kids. And my kids love him to death. One special story about Paul was when Brody was younger he learned about cigarettes and that they gave you cancer and he realized Paul smoked, so he asked my if he could call Paul because he needed to talk to him. Brody called him up and said Paul I don't want you to die will you please not smoke. Paul never smoked again. My kids can't get enough of their Uncle Paul, they are always asking to see their Uncle Paul and when can we go see him. And we love his wife Rae Ann they are both so loving and kind and we love them to death. Thank you so much guys so spending Christmas morning with us. We Love you and Happy Birthday to you both!!

Flashback Friday

today's pic was when we were little, I was just talking about this yesterday to someone, so finding this made my day. We used to have diaper box races and one of us would push and put the little kid in the box. It was a blast until we decided to race down a full flight of stairs....Happy Friday everyone!

Mad about you Monday

Okay so one of my many resolutions for this year was to be more grateful for the people in my life whom I love and care about because I am really horrible at telling people how much they mean to me and especially those in my family. I am hoping this will help me to be more positive about life in general and realize how lucky we all are. So each Monday I will pick someone in my life who I am grateful for and tell you why I think they are great, now this is kind of funny because most of these people will never read my blog but this is really more for me as usual! They will be in no particular order just whoever I am thinking about at the time! So don't take offense if your not first! All right really long explanation to get to here. So let me introduce you to my first Mad About you Monday
My little brother Cliff
Cliff is the peacemaker in our family, he always has been and I do truly love that about him probably because I was not so much that person! But he is usually calm and cool. The other thing I love about Cliff is he can always make me laugh. He is the white Will Smith, I seriously cannot watch a Will Smith movie and not think of Cliff he is always up for anything and I have watched him grow into a fabulous father and husband. I love him more than he will ever know and I am so very proud of him. And I pray every night for his safety and well being. I love you buddy! all my love sissy
Cliff today "boundin" with his son! If you have ever seen the pixar short you will get it!

Flashback Friday

Okay I have been waiting for a long time to post this flashback mostly because I couldn't find the picture, but this is John in a primary class about 1980? or 1981 the teacher took this as part of a Mother's Day gift and put it in a card that said "I Promise to Obey" in the cutest little boy handwriting, but here comes the funny part if you look at the little girl to far left of John you will see his future wife! Yep that's right that's me, I love this picture it makes me laugh everytime I see it. So everyone start scanning your child's sunday school classes and think to yourself do I want to spend Christmas's with that little one? Happy New Year Everyone!!
