Happy Little Feet.....

 These feet belong to the newest member of our family. Our grandson is due on May 4th.  He showed everything but his face yesterday.. We are excited.. It will be a new thing around here.. A little boy! lol
 Candice is right at 20 weeks so we have a little bit. They are in the normal range for everything. I am having fun searching Pinterest for camo baby stuff to make.
 However.. I don't feel old enough to be a Grandma.... Or more accurately a Mawmaw.... But.. I am.. even though I still feel like that 19 year old girl that walked down the Aisle 20 years ago to marry that Redneck of mine.... At least until I look in the mirror then I remember my age! lol
 Its been a crazy year and it is coming to a close quickly.. But I am so thankful for everything in my life and that has been in my life for the last 39 years, 10 months and a few days.. :)  God is good all the time..

The Big Day....

It all went great! 
Of course there were the little things that did not go the way they were supposed to.. 
But that is only normal. 

In color.. more pics to follow as soon as I get them all. 

The cake smash...
These two are so cute.. 

I am quite happy with my new Son-In-Law..
My daughter did a good job.. Even though it was a rough start. 
We think he is a great guy and perfect for our oldest kiddo.. 
 Now to figure out our new normal.. With just 2 kids at home... its weird.. lol They are settling into their  own rooms for the first time in their life. They have shared since the womb being twins..lol I still have piles of wedding stuff to sort and go through.. Get the borrowed stuff back to the owners..

26 DAYS!!!!!!!!!................................

 These 2 turned 17 at the end of September. Time does fly when you are having fun.. We are 26 days away from their older Sister getting married! Which is just crazy too! lol We are submerged in wedding stuff.. Kyle's favorite saying right now is that Hobby Lobby has thrown up in our house and its a MESS!.  Its fun.. Crazy and a little overwhelming for this Mother of the Bride! But before we know it, it will all be done and over.
 Lots of things have been on my mind lately.. A wedding can bring the good AND the Bad out in people.. We have had a little family drama lately.. The kind that just makes me shake my head and I want to tell a "mature" woman to grow up and realize everything is not about her.. In fact some actions are so purely selfish they scare would be friends away. I pray that I am Never like this person.. My belief is when some one marries into a family, you are doing just that...becoming Family! However... Some people even after many years still view an In-law as an outsider.. It is really sad.. I am thankful for my family that has shown me how to be accepting of those that are brought into the family.
 When I am overwhelmed seems to be the time when this person decides to take stabs at me.. She brings many things on herself by refusing to see past her own nose. By only seeing her situation. There is a whole world out there and when you get wrapped up in petty grievances they tend to grow to enormous proportions. That is a good reason to help others.. It keeps your problems in prospective. Some things are just not so big. When you help some one, then some one will be there to help you.. That is the way things work. Or the best way for thing to work..
 I an thankful for the Family and friends God has blessed me with. My girls and my husband are such a blessing. And now I am going to have a Son-In-Law to add to the mix. I believe he is the perfect fit for my oldest. He is a nice guy and I believe God definitely had a hand in this.
 I am a Blessed woman..
