Happy Thanksgiving Break ;)

What's the best thing about working for the school district?  The time off, of course ;) (Jerry I know you thought I was going to say working for you)  I know we don't get all summer off like the teachers do, but what other job besides being a teacher do you get a whole week off at Thanksgiving and two whole weeks off at Christmas? Hmmm.... let me think.... Nope can't think of any ;)!! I do love my job!!  

Anyway, I am looking forward to my time off... as you can tell.  Tucker and I have a lot of cuddle time to catch up on!  I'm also going to attempt getting Tucker to sleep in his own bed all night again instead of half in his half in ours.  Justin, Tucker and I are planning on visiting family up in Tennessee on Thanksgiving day and then traveling back to Mississippi for Thanksgiving with my family.  I can't wait to get the rest of my Christmas decorations out and of course all the shopping!  I'm sure I won't have one free minute to blog while I'm out soooo... 


Hope yours is blessed!

Birthday Party Weekend

We had a wonderful first birthday party for Tucker Friday night.  Many friends and family were able to come and make his first birthday special.

Our precious birthday boy!

The adorable birthday cake that Jennifer Thompson from Ashland made for us.  It was just as delicious as it was cute.

Tucker really loved the cake... as you can tell :)

His idea of opening gifts? Climbing on top of it, of course.  

We pray that we will have many many more birthdays to celebrate with this sweet boy!

Happy First Birthday Tucker!

One year ago today at 7:57 pm I became the Mommy to a beautiful 7 lb 3 oz 20 in. long baby boy.  I had no idea how much my life would change nor did I know that I could love something so unconditionally.  Justin and I have been so blessed.  We love you Tucker!

What is a One-Year Old?

A one-year-old son
is so many things,
a tiny discoverer of butterfly wings,
a hugger of teddies,
a sweet sleepyhead,
and someone to dream for
in bright years ahead…

A special new person
who, right from the start,
has a place in the family
and, of course, in your heart.

And, just when you think
that you’ve learned all the things
that your dear son is
and the joy that he brings,
a hug or a grin
comes with such sweet surprise
that love finds you smiling
with tears in your eyes!
