About Me

I was born and raised in Midland TX and couldn't wait to get out. After getting a taste of the big city life I ended up back in my home town. I married my wonderful husband Eric in March of 2006 and come September 11th our little Angel Cole was born. Life changed in an instant and I couldn't imagine life with out my boys. Eric is the most amazing father, my rock and ever quiet support and Cole is the joy of my life.I never knew that one person could bring so much unconditional love. They make me who I am today and because of that I am forever grateful

An Actual Picture

So I finally have a picture of Cole to post, which by the way my sister-in-law took. Thank you Shandi! It was too cute not to post. This is the pose he does that Daddy taught him. "He will say do Mommy's pose" and this is what he does. I just love this child of mine!

Givin kisses away

So I get a call from Eric today and he announces to me you are the proud mom of the kid who got put in time out all day. Do I dare ask why? Well he decided today was his day to test the teachers, scratched some little girl and decided it would be fun to throw dirt in someones eyes. Oh he just makes mama so proud. Of course I am so embarrassed, but am reassured he is not the only child to act out and it probably won't be his last. So we decide his punishment is no Silverado when he gets home, which is the equivalent of a teenager getting their cell phone taken away. So Eric is trying to be stern and stick to his guns when Cole walks up to him, grabs his face and in is sweet little voice;says Daddy look at me, don't be mad. I will give you all mommy's kisses.
Who would have know at at 2 you are already learning to bargain your way out of trouble?

I can't keep up

So I actually have a minute to sit down and look at my blog and realize it has been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything new. I look through everyone else's and it seems they are updated every other day. I am already not following through with my New Years resolution but then again who usually does. I have been more busy lately with work than I think I have ever been and the last thing I want to do to be honest is get on a computer after I have been on one all day long. By the time I get Cole settled down & to sleep I relish that 30 minutes to an hour to myself to catch up on my reading or I may have already passed out with him. So please forgive for not keeping up with this blog. But this days I just can't keep up. It seems as if the weeks just pass by so quickly and my realize that my sweet baby boy is not so much a baby anymore and it makes me so sad. The other night he actually sat still enough for me to rock him. I miss that more than anything. There are days when I wish I could just freeze time. It feels like yesterday when he was barely walking and all he could say was Da Da or MaMa and now we can sit down and have a full blown conversation with him. Yep he takes after his Mommy. He is so funny the other morning he walks in and says Daddy I would like some sausage for breakfast and it was clear as day. It was so funny because he said it so matter of fact. He is still addicted to Silverado and old Western that we have seriously probably watched over 200 times. I have some new pics to post but can't seem to find the camera. It's a possibility Cole has hid it somewhere which he loves to do because he thinks it is so hilarious. Well I come to an end of my post for the day. I have to finish up the laundry and my husband and sweet boy are telling me to get off the computer.

To My Grandmother

So I know I am not following through to well on my New Year's resolution to make sure I kept my blog updated, however I have had a lot going on lately. Last Saturday I get a phone call my grandmother is dying. We load up on the car Saturday and head to Denton, TX where she has been living. She passed away Sunday evening and we had the funeral on Thursday. I miss her more than I can ever imagine. I just keep thinking I am can't give her hugs anymore and I can't call her up just to say I love you and I am thinking about you. It has been an eye opener for me to remember to always make time for your grandparents. I have one grandfather left and I haven't been keeping up with my grand daughter duties. Life is precious and passes us by in the blink of an eye. Remember to always say I love you and always give good hugs. We are all so busy and caught up with this thing called life, make time to stop and enjoy each day and every moment you have. As difficult as this week as been, I am slowly starting to get over the grief. I have the most amazing friends and family without them I dont' know what I would do. I have strength and peace in knowing my grandmother is always watching over me as my gaurdian angel. I love you Grandma Sally and our memories together will forever remain in my heart.
