Our Big Boy Is Eleven!!!

He is the one who made me into a mama.  I treasure these days, knowing his time to fly out of the nest will come so soon.  I love his heart, his sweet spirit.  I love the way he knows before anyone else when I am sad.  I love the way he hugs me and tells me he loves me.  I love the way he works so hard at things that are important to him.  I love the way he spreads his hobbies ALL over the house (ok, well, I don't always love this, but I will miss it when he moves out some day).  I love that he loves Jesus with all of his heart, so I know that everything else will fall into place for him.  Happy Birthday, my sweet Isaac Benjamin.  I love you more than you can understand.  Love, Mama

Right now...

Outside my window...its dark, wet, and cold but I don't mind.

I am thinking...that it's always best if I get everything ready for the morning before I go to bed, but I don't really want to.

I am thankful for...our home, a safe place God has given us.

From the kitchen...not too much cause mama and daddy had a date for lunch and Grammie took us out for supper...can I get a yee haw??? To redeem myself, maybe I'll whip up a batch of Rice Krispie treats...or maybe not. :)

I am pants and black shirt...bought the shirt when I was pregnant with Ezra (early pregnant, its not maternity...I just remember growing out of it as I got more pregnant).

I am creating...a new office in the sitting room and I can't stop thinking about it and pinning things about it.

I am Florida this summer and since I've been making some reservations this week, I've become quite excited!!!

I am reading...The Passage by Justin Cronin and the book of Matthew by, well, Matthew

I am hoping...that we have some snow days, even though that means we don't get out of school as early, but snow days are just FUN!!!

I am hearing...someone come down the stairs...hmmm, all of the someone's should be in bed, perhaps I should check this out!!

Around the house...I've been simplifying and organizing...that always feels so good!!

One of my favorite things...hugs from my boys

A few plans for the rest of the week...our final Christmas celebration (haha...its almost February!!) with friends, the big boy is turning 11 which will involve some pizza and laser tagging with the brothers and the daddy, and there will be basketball..lots and lots of basketball
