just another lesson learned from my children. It doesn't matter what something costs as long as it makes you happy. Josey has always loved hats and when we found this one he had to have it. Three dollars made him one happy boy.

sometimes i am amazed i made someone so beautiful. i make no apologies for believing her to be the most beautiful child ever...she is...if only in my eyes. And when I look at my boys I think they are beautiful as well. I believe my children are beautiful just like everyone else believes there child to be the most beautiful. After all- isn't this is how god intended for us to look at our children.

Missing can make you ache. Not just your heart but your entire being. The other night as i was lying awake in bed thoughts of my mom came to my mind. Aching, missing thoughts. The kind that makes your heart burn and your eyes well up. It was like many nights before and i am sure just like many nights to come. As i was lying there the same question came to my mind. Why? I just want to know why. I know I will never know but when I get to heaven, rest assured, I will ask.
So after lying there for a while, my question remained unanswered and I finally fell asleep with a heavy heart and little jojo by my side.
The next morning i moved my thoughts of my mom to another part of my brain...the part that holds all those memories and went on about my day.
Fast forward to that afternoon. I was out and about running errands, flipping mindlessly thru the radio stations when i came to this song. A song I much needed to hear. A song that doesn't answer my question but it does make me feel better if only for a moment. I do know that EVERYTHING happens for a reason and God has a plan for me. I just wish, so very badly, that plan would have included my mom.
"but I won't cry because I know she flew up to heaven on the wings of angels
by the clouds and stars and past where no one sees and she walks with jesus and I know she's smiling saying don't worry about me"
Mom, I. MISS. YOU. EVERYDAY.
If I could have written a song about my mom this would have been it...

i love organization. and with organization comes the cleaning out, getting rid of, and regrouping. with springtime it's time for a fresh start. so what better time to get the boys a buzz cut. we always buzz easton's hair for baseball and let it grow a little longer when hockey comes around. josey has never had a buzz cut but it was time. he is one month away from being four....did i just say that right? FOUR! oh boy...i feel a depression coming on. when easton turned four i was so sad i ended up with josey. that's impossible now for tyler and i so i M.U.S.T. find another hobby. hmmmm...what shall it be?
below is the progression of josey's haircut complete with before and after shots. i have never thought easton and josey look alike but i don't know...something about the after picture...it reminds me so much of easton. must be the smirk.
before and after...
she cut his hair with him turned away from the mirror. this was the first moment he saw himself. check me out. the mamarazzi!
he made the cutest faces.
and the trimmers gave him the willies...
