Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day has a special place in my heart now days!! I have realized the danger our troops are in and to be honest it scares me for Justin to go back!! But to all those that have lost their lives I thank them for giving all!!!

I hope that you all have a wonderful day and remember...All gave some but some gave ALL!!!

One proud mama!

Oh yes I am...ONE PROUD MAMA!!

All three children have now graduated!! That is a big accomplishment these days!! Jeff and I were talking just a few minutes ago and we made through all the years of school with no one getting suspended, or getting in any kind of real trouble! I AM SO PROUD!!!

These two people in this picture with Britani and Bradley, are two of a kind! They have been there for my children like no other two people could or would!! Ganky and Pa are so much like their grand-parents!! My mama and daddy would be so proud and Theresa has seen my family through so many hard time, happy times. sad times and well she is there for me no matter what!!!

Thank you Theresa and Marc!!! You two are so special to us!!

You will never know what y'all mean to us!!

When we began this home school journey I was sure how we would do but Ashley and Kurt moved just minutes away and well she knew all about the work they were doing and was able to help the to the very end!!! Thank you Ashley!!

This is a picture of Bradley with a very nice man, Mr. G! He worked in the office of Newton High all the time Bradley and Britani was there!! He really took to Bradley and was so happy that he was invited to the graduation!!

Since the day she was born she was special to me!! Tracy and her family have been such a special part of my life and my childrens life!! I always said if something happened to me before my children were grown I wanted Tracy and Derek to finish raising the for me!! They have been there for me all the way through!! I love them all so much!!!

Six years ago this very special man came to our church to be our Pastor and he is not only our Pastor but a very dear friend!! He has now been able to see all 3 of my children graduate!!

Bradley is a people person and loved most of his teachers throughout the years but this teacher, Ms. Carlock was his very favorite! She has stuck with him and help him when all the other teachers would have given up!! She still to this day is so special to him!!!

Robert and Bradley have been best friends since middle school and no matter what they still find their way back to each other to be there when they need each other!!

My sweet baby girl!!! I am so PROUD of her!!!

My handsome son!! I am so PROUD of him too!!

I got the catch a picture of them walking in!!

And from Kentucky, Bradleys sweet girl friend came to see all the festivities!!

And here at the twins heading out to practice their graduation!!

I can't believe they are all grown up!!

Justin was not able to be here for the graduation but put a sweet post on facebook!!

He said "I am proud of my bro and sister, sorry I missed it...but know I love y'all and I am here for both of me if you need anything"!!! Such a sweet brother!!!

All three of my children have made me so PROUD!!!

Where has time gone?

I want to start out by saying I am not a Grand Mother but Tracy's children are about as close to grandchildren as I will have for a while (I hope)!!

I can remember the day Alex was born and she stole my heart!! I never thought she could pull at my heart strings the way she does and then came along Avery and well I had enough love for all four of Tracy and Derek's children!! I just can't believe how they have grown up! Both Alex and Avery were graduating and well we all could not be at both so they put all our names in a hat and picked who would go where!! I was chosen to go to GWA and see Alex graduate!!

She is so precious!!

She will be the graduating class of 2023!! That sounds like a long way off but time is flying by!!

She got her diploma and was so happy!!

Alex and Pa!

Tracy(Alex's sweet mama) and Alex!!

And last but not least...ME and Alex!!!

Uncle Jeff was there but had got caught up in a horrible rain storm and was all wet and we will get a picture of him with her another day!!

Now the Graduations continue...My Twins Graduate tonight!! My heart is full and I am so happy for them! I just sit and think about all the children growing up and well I begin to let the tears flow!! I am just not doing very good with it!!

Justin is doing good and I get to text with him a good bit for now, but he will go to the field Sunday and be gone for a couple of weeks!! I love him and miss him terribly but I know he has to do all this to stay safe during his deployment!!

You all have a great day!!

Hello...My name is Reecy!! I am staying with my grandma while my dad is doing some training and getting ready to go to that big sand box as grandma calls it!! I am enjoying the stay with her...she is spoiling me!!! I sure miss my dad but I know that he would be with me if he could!!

I know that my grandma got a phone call yesterday because she was so happy!! She is not liking not being able to talk to him...I think she loves him a whole lot!! From what I understood he was doing good!!

My grandma talks about her blogging friends all the time and I wanted to be a part of all this stuff!! I also know that the there are these other people named Bradley and Britani here that are gonna be doing something next week and grandma is getting things ready for! I think they said they are graduating!! Must be something big and I think they are planning a party!! I hope I get to be a part of all that too...I promise I would be a good girl!!

Well I guess I better get going looks like grandma is getting ready to go somewhere so I have to be put up!! I can't be left out cause I like to tear up stuff...I am still a puppy!!!

It was so nice to meet each of you and I hope that you have a good day!!

Grandma says...Keep Praying...IT WORKS!!!

Class of 2011

I can't believe that these two kids are so grown up and that they are fixing to graduate!!

Theresa and I went up to Daddy's and took some pictures and I love EVERY one of them!!

I love this one!! The old home place address!! I bought Daddy this mailbox just before he got so sick and past away!!!

We only have a couple of weeks left of school and then they will be finished!!

I am feeling so sad!!! Too much going on for me!!! Not sure how much my heart is gonna be able to handle...All I can do is PRAY!!

A little of this and A little of that!

Busy is a good thing but sometimes I want to share things and I just don't have time!!! But tonight I am taking the time while watching DWTS!!!!

And to begin with it was Nursery Rhyme Day at Avery's school and so she was Little Bo Peep!!

Isn't she precious!!

A couple of years ago most of you will remember my sister Barbara's house flooded and so she was able to sale it back to the county and this is what they did with it!! They are making green space there so no one has to worry about the flooding again!!!!

Just is suppose to be going to California for some training so I have the grand puppy!! Her name is Reecy and she is a handful!!! Not sure really what kind of dog she is...but we love her and we are taking really good care of her!!

But then on Wednesday someone backed into the side of his car!!! But it is already in the shop and being fixed!! Yayy....thank God for USAA auto insurance!!! They move quick!!

And then on Friday, he called and said...."I think I broke my nose"!! And well he did and may possibly need surgery!! :(

On Saturday, We went to visit him in Jacksonville and this display was up at Walmart and well I love anything that says USMC!!!

And since we went up on Saturday that meant I got to spend Mother's Day with all three of my children and I enjoyed the heck out of it!! They knew that I really didn't need anything but just being with them was EVERYTHING I NEEDED!!! They all three gave me a really sweet card and then when I got home my adopted daughter Ashley gave me another one and I felt so much love from each of them!! I love them all and would not have my life any other way!!

Then today!!!!

It was Theresa (Ganky's) Birthday and we had lunch at her favorite Chinese place!! I didn't eat cause I have weigh in Wednesday so no cheating here!! Tracy and I put together dinner for her tonight and it was so much fun!!

So this blog post was a little of this and a little of that...But everything that has been going on around here!! I am busy working and planning my meals and trying to loose this weight!! I hope that each of you have a wonderful evening!! And please pray for Justin...His nose is hurting him!!!

Getting Ready!

So often when we are growing up we have friends that we go to school with or that we met along the way and then you loose touch with them. Well with me I grew up with family and Tracy is a very special person to me! My mama kept her while Theresa went to work and we are more like sisters!! She is such a sweet young lady!! I love her and she is one of my very best friends ever!!!

And a lot of sisters grow up together and stay close through out the years but I was not around when my sisters were all growing up...I was a late in life baby!! But I have been so very lucky to be able to be close to my sisters!! Theresa took me in when our mama died and did her very best to finish raising me!! I am so proud to call her my sister and my friend!!!

And well here are my Children on Easter!!

I have a lot going on and a lot to get ready for!!!

Justin is leaving next week to go for more training to get ready to go to the big sand box! I am not looking forward to him to leaving me again!!! My heart just breaks everytime I think about it!! I pray for his safety during this deployment and for my strength to get through this!!! And then on top of all that...The twins are fixing to graduate!!! My heart just aches know that my babies are growing up and there are no more!! I have a lot of planning and parties to get ready for!! I just hope that my poor little heart can take all this!!

I have to go to WW tomorrow...I hope I have lost 2 or more pounds!!!(I will let you know!)
