Adventures in Georgia: funeral

This past week we traveled to GA for my grandfathers funeral(I called him Papa). When we weren't doing funeral things we hung out with the family. I was able to visit the outside of my old house that I grew up in in Georgia, visit Stone Mnt. (a huge granite rock that has been there for hundreds of years and has some historical value to the civil war) and celebrate Tuckers first birthday with my parents and family in Georgia. We also were able to get a 4 generation picture with my grandmother. Below are some pictures from the weeks events.

Robin Williams

I always said I would cry when Robin Williams or Tim Allen died.  Yesterday Aug. 11th, Robin Williams left this world all to soon.

Only I didn't cry. I was in shock. I didn't think he would die this soon there was still laughter to share.  He played many roles. He reminded me of my dad.

He was our genie, our dad driving us around in the RV(the rolling turd), he was our Nanny in Mrs.Doubtfire, he was our  kid brother who got go stuck in to the game known as Jumangi, he was our professor that created the green dancing blob in Flubber, he was our news man with good morning vitname, he taught us that penguins can dance and  is so much more to us.

May we always remember to laugh, to be ourselves and to take chances.

10 and 11 months: life with Tucker

Tucker at 10 months old back in July 2014
 July we saw fireworks. Learned how to pull himself up in the bath tub and crib.

Tucker at 11 months old August 2014.  Tucker is talking more of his baby talk. He is pulling himself up on whatever he can. He has had 4 hair cuts,  laughs and his happy. He is eating more big people food: like today he had grilled cheese, bananas, and gold fish. He ate it all. Hard to believe my little baby won't be a baby anymore, he'll soon be a toddler.

When you look in the mirror do you know who you are? Do you know that God Loves You? Do you know that he sees more in you than you see in yourself? Why not take a good look in the mirror and see who God has designed you to be- Amazingly you!

9 Month of Tucker

9 months old and Tucker is growing up fast. I miss his little baby stage. But I am enjoying his new stages. He is such a happy baby.  He enjoys food, crawling and pulling things off the bookshelf. He still loves the water... he truly is my little Frog.

This month we went to the beach to see my parents and my grandparents. Tucker tried to eat the sand but loved floating in the ocean in his float. He even almost fell a sleep in his float in the water.  I wish I had a water camera to get a pictures of him in the ocean.

5, 6, 7, 8 who do we love? Tucker

Summer Time!

It has been a few months since I really last wrote. Being busy is an understatement. I thought working two jobs and volunteering last summer was insane. Being a mom, well that just a whole different game! I play mom, full-time worker, house keeper, wife, and whatever hat needs to be filled.

In my life, work is work. It's simply that. I work in bankruptcy. What it has taught me pay off your debt as fast as you can and try not to let it get out of hand. And if you have to claim it take a breath it will be okay and know you will not be the only one to claim nor will you be the last.

I just take work one day at time and try my best to keep my head up. Remembering that God is in control.

Little Boy is growing so fast. He has two teeth, loves to laugh, talks to himself and even tries to blow kisses. He stays pretty happy most of the time.  He is a good little sleeper. He still army crawling.

John is working hard and enjoying his role as dad. He loves playing with little boy and taking naps together.

Summer is finally here. We plan to spend time at the pool, eat snow cones and go visit the grandparents at the beach.

Not much longer and little boy will be one years old! hard to believe my little man is growing so quickly!
