The morning after Beth & Josh’s wedding, we hopped on a plane and headed back to Jax – there was no way I was going to miss my girls first dance recital!
Almost immediately after I hit publish on my last post, I got an email from my Aunt Kathy with her pictures from our girls weekend. She took a TON so I won’t share them all, but here are a few of my favorites.
I’m playing catch up again since work has had me too busy to have time to write at night. By the time I’m done, the last thing I want to do is look at the computer. I just want to snuggle the kiddos and relax.
Every time I start to write a race recap, I want to say it’s one of my favorite races. I feel like I say that about all of the races.. perhaps I just like to run races? Who knows. Last year, I went into pretty great detail about the Bainbridge Half Marathon so I’ll spare you this year. If you’re not familiar with it though and you’re anywhere near South West Georgia, you may want to check it out. I posted lots of pictures of the course last year and it’s really pretty. Adam was running the half this year too, along with my cousins Drew and Celia. Technically I guess Celia is my cousin-in-law. She’s married to my cousin Daryl, but I like her so I claim her as my own
It’s time to catch you up on what we’ve been up to again! I’m linking up with Jill, Nikki, and Lynda for the ultimate coffee date! I’m late, again, thanks to work. I keep thinking this busy cycle is coming to an end, but then it doesn’t. It’s not as bad as it has been though, I’m actually able to snuggle my little ones and put them to bed at night. Mackenzie kind of broke my heart a little bit the other night. I was finishing up some work while Adam bathed them and when I went upstairs to help get them to bed, she said “Mommy, you have to work? Or is it cuddle time?” I hate that my busy work schedule affects them. I can’t complain too much though, I’m able to work from home most days and my boss is great about letting me take off when I need to.
I kind of don’t know where to start. I have a million posts swirling around in my head, I started making a list and it’s quite long and that’s just what I came up with off the top of my head. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t blog for a month. Work has been keeping me so busy and by the time I am done (which has been in the wee hours of the morning, for the last three weeks) with work for the day, the last thing I want to do is spend a second longer sitting in front of the computer. Even if it’s to write about things I enjoy.
I’ll spare you a lot of words since there are a TON of pictures.. they pretty much tell the story. We celebrated Mackenzie’s big day today and it was wonderful!
Since our kids birthdays are so close together, and they are both having big parties at the house this year, we decided to do Braden’s party just a bit early, to give me some breathing room between parties. His party was this weekend and we had SO much fun! He’s really been into pirates lately, thanks to Jake and the Neverland Pirates. It’s such a fun theme for a kids party!
My cousin Drew and his wife Amanda are expecting their first baby, Hudson Gregory! We are absolutely thrilled for them and cannot wait to meet this little guy! My family hosted a shower for little Hudson today in Bainbridge. Daryl and Celia were kind enough to let us use their new home. It’s seriously gorgeous and was Celia’s grandmothers house. It’s in the historic part of Downtown Bainbridge and is just amazing.
We celebrate Christmas with my moms side of the family every year the Sunday following Christmas. It’s something we’ve always done, since her parents were divorced, my papa wanted his girls to be with their mom on Christmas Day so she wasn’t alone. She passed a few years ago, but we’ve stuck with the schedule because with the craziness of the holidays.. sometimes waiting a week is the only way to get us all together. And there are a LOT of us.
