Coming Home!

I am so excited that Amanda, Jason, and Aiden are moving home to Texas from West Virginia! We’ve had to go way too long without them! I cannot express the joy in my heart knowing they’ll be close by! Ready for some Gigi time!

Best. Teacher. Ever.

Zachary loves his teacher, Kari James. When he was refusing to go to school, she and para Duke Simms started coming over in the morning to help us get him to BHS. That is real dedication. We love both of them like family because they really, truly care about our Zachary.

Dance Moves

My brother posted a video of his boys (little ones) dancing on Facebook. So Donny and Caleb made a video to post in response…hilarious!

Men Need Meat

I got a hilarious text from my hubby, who was apparently over all the casseroles I’d been making for dinner lately. He simply said…I am a man. Men need meat. Bring home meat.  Continue Reading →

Happy Valentine’s Day to Me

Someone Missed Me

Got home from Austin, and my hubby had these beautiful rings for me. He knew I was feeling down about John, and wanted to cheer me up! I love this guy!

Down Again – But Up Again Too

While I was in Austin, John fell and injured his left knee again! His surgeon said that her repairs never break…and they didn’t. When John fell in his hallway, the tendons on his knee didn’t tear loose. Instead, they broke his kneecap. Continue Reading →

Rockin’ the Medieval Look

Caleb needed a costume for the Choir Madrigal dinner…so off to Magic, Etc. we went. He narrowed it down to these two outfits and eventually went with the Joshua blue one. Continue Reading →

Chinese Food With Donny

Tony grabbed Donny for a dude’s lunch at a local Chinese food place. They had a good time hanging out together. It’s hard not to have Donny home any more, but it’s nice to be able to things like this with him. Continue Reading →

Bama Buddies

Tony and Liam had a great time visiting with friends in Alabama. They say Paul, Jamie, and Tristan…then went to see Pete’s family. Good times. Continue Reading →

West Virginia Bound

Amanda was right…we should’ve left for the airport earlier. Even though we left at 4am, they still missed their 6am flight due to long TSA lines. They were able to get on a flight 1 hour later, with a layover in Chicago. They made it home safely. So sad to see my kiddos leave…and my little tater tot. Can’t wait for April to see them again! Continue Reading →

A Photo Revisited

Amanda wanted to retake a favorite photo of she and Tony…with Aiden. So we put on some bandannas…and recreated the photo. Continue Reading →

Back to Bama

Tony, Liam, and TJ left early on the 1st to tow TJ’s truck back to Alabama. Hated to see them go, but knew they had to. Hope it won’t be too long before we see TJ again. Continue Reading →
