Words of Wisdom Wednesday by Macy

Macy is my doodler. My writer. My love note sender. My girl who leaves signs all over the house. I love all the notes and pictures that she leaves behind. It's one of my most favorite things about her. She will perk you up on even the yuckiest of days. One of my most favorite ones that she left me once that I love says, "Mom, you are buetieful" haha! Isn't that cute. Oh, and I love the ones that say I am the best mom she has ever she has had tons. ha! And my all time favorite, "Reid is a poopoo head". Now, that's funny....even though I don't allow potty talk and obviously it was before she learned the verse, "He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have a King for a friend."

One of her favorite things to do is to write something fun on my plate in the kitchen....whether its scriptures, the dinner menu or Happy Birthday Mom. Lately it has been scripture because our church has started this wonderful program called "Hide the Word in Your Heart" and its all about learning God's Word and keeping it with you. Because, if you are like me, we learn it and then forget it. That really frustrates me. Anyway, I love our church so much and the way they challenge us to keep the word in our hearts daily. I also love it that the whole congregation is doing it and we are keeping each other accountable. After the kids say their verses they get a sticker that says, "I can say my memory verse, ask me what it is" and they love that. They will spout it off to whoever will listen.

This memory work program is for 2 years all the way to adult. Macy has soaked it up like a sponge. You can ask her quite a few verses and she can spit them out like crazy. That makes my heart happy to know she is getting it. She doesn't even hardly have to stop and think about it like her crazy mommy. I have to really think about it. My old brain doesn't quite work like her young one, ya know.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday full of wisdom and can feel the depth of God's love.....

Pictures from the reception

Everybody JUMP!!

Sweet Sam...

Are y'all doing the jitterbug? haha

My sis, the photographer, and Whit.

Whitney and Macy "cuttin' a rug"

Cake time....

Father/daughter dance...makes me cry everytime.

Jor and Clark sittin' in a tree....

This is another post that is WAY overdue. I am a bad cousin for not sharing it sooner. It was such a wonderful weekend and we were honored to have a special place in the wedding. Macy was a Jr. Bridesmaid and thought she was a teenager. Reid was a Jr. Groomsman and I was scared at how big he looked standing up there with all those men. Time goes by way too fast.

Jordan and Clark are the sweetest couple and their love for one another was evident. It makes my heart happy to see how much Clark loves her and that he is her soul mate. I wish them nothing but happiness and love...We love you guys!

Here are some pictures from the fun weekend, not in any particular order, because blogger is weird. Maybe that's why I never blog. Any who, enjoy....

This was the best I could do after the wedding. That's why my sister is the photographer, not me.

Me and my little man. My heart overflows....

My sweet hubby and baby girl....Heart overflowing?? Oh, yes!

Sweet baby cousin Whitney! We love this girl and are so glad Macy has a wonderful Christian woman like Whit to look up too.

Precious Avery, Neena and Papaw! Love them so much! Isn't this a cute picture?

This thing I love most about life....prayer with family and friends. Could not make this life without it. Blessings all around.

Me and Hollie. Love this girl...and miss her since she moved to Dallas! Basketball season just isn't the same.

Sweet cousins....Avery, Jaxon and Macy. Aren't they super cute? Avery and Jaxon were little bell ringers and they took their jobs very seriously. :)

JoJo and Jordan...precious mother and daughter.

Jordan and Macy....preciousness

More pics to come....

A wispy kind of day

Have I have reached an all time low? Nah! I have found a new love. The Wi*sp. It is the most wonderful invention ever for the hurried family. Doesn't that sound terrible? The hurried family. We are busy and now I'm sure I will be judged because it sounds like we are so busy we don't have time to brush our teeth. ha! We really do and its not an everyday thing but it does come in handy. Now, its not for me because now matter how busy I get I do remember to brush my teeth. It's my precious children who sometimes get in the car after a crazy morning with "knock you over" morning breath that forget. Then I feel guilty because I am their mother and I should remind them but sometimes I am a slacker...and I have learned to deal with that. Sometimes I think they forget to brush their teeth on purpose so they can use one. They are great because they have the brush with yummy toothpaste on one side and a cool toothpick on the other. You never know when you might need to pick your teeth. haha! They aren't the cheapest things but oh, so worth it. The other day Macy was brushing her teeth on the way to school (doesn't that sound funny) and I swear this guy was staring at us. I'm sure we looked funny driving down the street with a 7 year old going to town on her teeth. Hey, its that or yellow, nasty teeth for the rest of the day. ha! Now, don't judge me....go buy some and brush your teeth in the car today! It's fun. :)

A sweet birthday and a funny

This is way overdue but since I am trying to get back in the blogging saddle I thought I should start including things that I have forgot. So, forgive me if I backtrack a little and get things out of order. Here is an overdue shout out to the best Nana in the universe. Words can never describe how I feel about this woman. I love everything about her. And I wish her the best birthday and year EVER! I love you, Nana!

So, tonight as we were driving to yet another one of brother's games, the radio was on classic country. Sometimes I like it, ok. Don't be hatin'. :) Anyway, Patsy Cline's classic song "Crazy" was on. Macy said, "Mom, could you please turn that song. It's so old. Like 1980 something." HAHA! I thought that was hilarious. She is such a funny girl.

Monday was a crazy, crazy day. I'm going to bed. 'Nuff said.

I'm baaacckk!

Well, so much for being a better blogger. I get so stinkin' tired of saying that I am going to keep up with my life better on blogger and then never follow through. I guess you could say I am a slacker. A major slacker. So, here's to a new day, a new blog post and ramblings of the ever so busy wife & mom.

I can't even begin to tell you all that we have been up to since January 14. January! WOW. I so thought 2010 would be my year to jump my blog into the realms of greatness like maybe Pioneer Woman or someone cool like that. HA! But, nah. I guess I will never have my 15 minutes of fame or get to be on Good Mor*ning America. So, here we go....Just little 'ole me trying to make some sense of my everyday crazy life. I love my life. Crazy or not.

*What have we been doing lately? SPORTS!! Sports of all kinds. We are THAT family that usually spends most of our time at some kind of playing field and spend tons of money at the concession stands. Thanks to Macy. She loves that if you catch a foul ball you get free Air Heads. Let me tell you, that girl can run after a foul ball like a pro. She has beat a few boys out of the popular candy goodness. I love every minute of watching my little athlete play and look forward to many, many years of using my wonderful stadium chair, cheering and eating sunflower seeds.

*Macy is still keeping us busy with dance and her big recital will be in May. She looks so forward to her time in the spotlight! ha! We will also have our ever so famous mother/daughter dance. It is really fun getting to spend that time with her dancing our little hearts out. I'm sure in May there will be pictures for my few loyal readers.

*Tonight is Sabrsula family movie night. We get our shower, jammies on, and hop in our bed and watch a movie. There is usually popcorn involved. Last movie night we watched The Karate Kid II. I had forgotten what a wonderful movie that is. The kids loved it. Troy and I enjoy the time with them because we know that this phase won't last forever. We would love to pause this moment because they are at such a fun age but for now we just soak it all in and love every minute of the time we do get to spend with all 4 of us together. Being a mommy is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Sometimes I wonder why God blessed me so....

*Today was an absolute beautiful day. Just sayin'

*Troy and Macy just got home from the Girl Scout Father/Daughter dance. They both walked in with huge grins on their faces. I think they had a great time. Macy did giggle when she told me...."Daddy did the moonwalk." Oh, good grief! Glad I wasn't there. haha!

*I know you won't believe this....Reid is helping Macy with some math games at the table as we speak. On a Saturday. Really? Poppi would be so proud. :)

*On that note...although Reid and Macy have their moments, they really do love each other. I see glimpses of smiles, laughs and concerns. When Macy has homework he likes to help. Especially math. He is really good at it....thankfully he didn't take after me. At Reid's games Macy loves to cheer. That makes my heart swell with pride.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Saturday. I pinkie promise that I will be back to blogging won't be 4 months! (JoJo) :) For now, I am off to pop some buttery popcorn and spend the rest of the night with my family. Family I come!
