The Combo

This year was exceptionally busy for us in the Spring.  I am grateful that all our people made time for an Easter gathering and celebration of Spencer turning 3.  Somehow those things happened in the SAME week and we got to gather and celebrate both our Risen Savior and this sassy pot.  She insisted on wearing her Elena dress for the celebration and egg hunt.
See below.

Grandma and most of her grand babies.
Clean children.

Often times I wonder how in the world I make this life work.
Our finances are messy.
Our days are busy.
We don't eat as well as we should.
The kids argue, a lot.
They run me to death.
They ask a lot of questions.
Too many.
But at the end of each day I am thankful for them.
The chaos.
This life.
No matter the crazy, they keep me grounded.
They make me feel like what I am doing matters.

I worry though...
such a sad state of personality.
I kid I kid.
Clearly we are entertained.
And we have one with food on the brain.

Easter 2017

Ya'll, I flipping love Easter.
It is easily my favorite holiday all year long.
I love what we are celebrating and how amazing my life is because of that.
Because of Christ.
I love the colors.
Pastels and brights and all the florals.
I adore that it goes on for weeks because my kids celebrate at school too.
I love that I get to serve at church and love the babies.
There is something about giving that fills my cup...
And then there are these kids.
These crazy blessings that I have to hang out with every day.
They are hilarious to watch and enjoy on a daily basis.
I freaking love them.
She only wanted the pink and purple eggs.
She would literally RUN by every other color...

Spencer's Drama

Let's all observe Spencer's dramatic flair.
I really enjoy how much enthusiasm she wakes up with daily.
I love that she's about as positive as I AM!
Her smiley face lights up every single face.
I am often told that she is the happiest child in the world.
I am just SO grateful that she is MINE!

Joy turns 3

Spencer Brynne turned 3 on Friday.
Here are a handful of pictures that make me giggle.

Can you tell she loves that hat?

Oh, and sleeping.
She loves sleeping.

SB 2017

We had a busy week planned for Spring Break 2017!
Monday was a great lunch courtesy of my mother in law at Mary Macs in Atlanta.
They have some of the best food ever!
I had the chicken friend chicken and the sweet rolls!
So yum!
We also had fun dodging the RAIN and the tornadoes!

Tuesday the tiny people went to play with BeBe and Papa for the day.
We cleaned out the garage AND sold some things online!
It was miraculous.
I was so excited to get that task done.
I love being able to trash things and donate them to people  who will actually USE them!

Wednesday was filled with more crazy weather.
We braved the rain and some more tornado warnings for playtime!
It was Hayes' bday celebration with his BFF Luke.
I'll post those pictures and that story later!

Thursday we went to have lunch with Pawpaw and tour the Delta Museum in Atlanta.
There is an actual 747 we got to walk around in AND there are several airplanes on display.
We got to spend some time learning about the history of Delta.
Spencer is wild.
Hayes loves to learn.
And Elizabeth is a professional picture poser.

Friday  was our last day of break and I'm pretty sure we just laid low and worked in the yard!
