Lived In Texas For 11 Years....And We Finally Did It!! :)!

I have dreamt of this for years and years.... Why didn't we do it with each child as babies?  I kept thinking I will wait until my family is complete.... we will do it then?..Dumb? Yeah? I'm weird like that.  But let me just say.... if you are up for A LOT of BLUE...Continue On.... 

It ain't just the BLUEBONNETS of's the BLUE EYED ORANGE KIDDOS!!!  LOL!

Thank you Lord for these little blue blessings!  My home has now exploded in bluebonnet pictures because I am so proud of my babies and family!  :)  They are "More Than Words" to me!  I look at them and get instant happiness!  I thank them often for doing these pictures for their mommy!  :)
So time to share with all of you!  :)

Did Your Eggs Hatch?

Our's Did!  All 4 of them! 4 Blue Eyed Chicks! :)
Spring has sprung!  Easter came!  Eggs were found and hatched tons and tons of candy.... 26 Cadbury eggs to be exact!!!!  What in the world do I do with that many Cadbury Eggs?????   All the chicks are crazy at our house!  The blue birds are sweet and the flowers are beautiful!  Everywhere you look, all the sounds you's God's amazing touch. I love this time of year! 

April has always been a favorite month of mine. 
I think of :
