Hoppy & Moppy & Other Pretty Things :)

Well here they are.... Hoppy and Moppy, two frogs Noah found and named. This was their home for a few days until we let them go! :) We had a blast with them. I mean why not? Right? :) Then, on to some "other" pretty things..... my lovely kids and some of my backyard flowers! I love spring and green and pretty bright colors! All this rain just makes them brighter! Hope you have a "Hoppy" week! I bet he is! Now that he is FREE! Ha! Can you find the 2 frogs? Like you have anything better to do right?
He is ticked!

I think he wants to pee on us!

Love Remains the Same

Well if you know me, you know I have a song for everything! I love this song! I want to dedicate this one to the best Mama and Sissy in the world! I had the best time with you both and it's always comical with all 3 of us! I hated dropping you off at the airport. I fought back and isn't it the hardest to hold back crying? Can I get an Amen? I almost made it home, 5 min. away and this song comes on and I LOST it! I felt so lonely in my car without you two knowing as I was looking up in the sky that you were about to be there in a plane. I thought of Daddy and how much we have been through together and now what we have lost.... mistakes we have made.... all that has changed and will continue to change.... but our "Love Remains the Same." I do wish this could, we could, last forever... but as we know it doesn't. I am thankful for every moment I get with you and talk to you. Thank you for flying all the way to Texas to see me and my crazy kids and ok.. Nate too. :) For letting me sleep in, making me laugh so hard, indulging me and watching Twilight, for cute yellow shoes and a happy ring, for Starbucks, for a Mexican Mama Comedy Hour, for yummy potato salad and french toast, for shopping till I dropped, for sitting around and doin nothing and just being together! I can't wait until next time. Everlasting Hugs for you both! I love you! Ya'll come back! I miss ya'll too much!!!
MeeMaw, we love you so much!

Thank ya'll for all the treats and all the lovin! :)

He'll take you back

Well here is a little song that puts tears in my eyes everytime I listen to it. This Easter I want to wish everyone a beautiful day with family and friends and Jesus. I love how this song reminds us that "He'll take us back, even when the pain is coming through.." This cuts like a knife into me b/c I am so thankful that I have Jesus to take me back everytime. When I am down and can't pray b/c I am so stricken with grief over my Daddy, He takes me back. No matter what... he's always there to pick me back up in my not good enough for him, pathetic state! "I know what his response will always be.... I'll take you back!" "I can never thank Him enough! Even when my fight is over now, even when my pain is coming through, You take me back.... always.."



Ok so there is my Easter joy/Easter tears. Here is some more of my joy! Below is our Bunny Shoot! :) They loved me painting them with my eyeliner and lipstick! Love these lil bunnies! Love all of you! Happy Easter! One of the best :)
