lovey dovey

I love my family!

I am a wife, mother of three beautiful boys, and a middle school administrator. At times, I have mistakenly tried to achieve perfection in each role. These attempts always fail miserably because there is no such thing as a perfect wife, a perfect mom or a perfect worker! I decided to relinquished my pursuit of perfection…I can say without guilt that my shortcomings are vast and my mistakes many. Embracing my imperfections and turning my life over to God has been freeing and led to a sweeter life. I found that when I quit trying so hard, that SOMETIMES things magically fall into place and for brief moments I am “Supermom.”

New Year's Eve

We celebrated New Year's Eve at home this year with the boys and Lillian and Timothy.  We had such a good time popping fireworks, eating hot dogs, making smores and talking by the firepit.  Thanks Lillian and Timothy for coming to our WILD & CRAZY party!  :)

Cannon gave a thumbs up to the New Year's celebration. 

It was chilly! 

The big daddy firework.  It got the neighbors cheering.  Totally illegal since we live in the city limits...

Boys big and small love fireworks.
