Starting A New Year

Well here we are already half way through the first month of 2014 and I have completely failed at blogging. So this morning I made the kiddos muffins but I didn't want to eat just drink my coffee. So this have given me time to blog. So much has happened and I will try and catch up and post all these this later. I HOPE!!!! But I know for now going forward I want to blog things this way I have a way to look back and see what all has happened.
Well November 24 2013 mine and the kids life changed once again but this one was for the BEST

I said YES!!!!
So here is the story. Me and Andy went to Opryland Hotel in Nashville to look at the Christmas lights. He asked his mom to go with us which I didn't think anything of as we do a lot with her. We walked around for maybe a hour then came to a huge 10 foot tree and I was taking a picture with my phone and so was his mom. He said let mom take a picture of us in front of the tree. Then we took the picture and I was going to walk away and keep looking at all the lights and the next thing I know Andy is on one knee in front of 100's of people telling me how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. And of course I said yes. It was perfect and I couldn't wait to get on the phone and call the kids. Which they were so happy as they love Andy to death.
We have no plans of a wedding this year but definitely planning for 2015. I want to save and have the wedding I want as I didn't get this the first go round.
As for the kids they are great, growing each day… Which makes this mommy sad. Braxton is almost done with his 1st season was basketball and he has done great and I have sucked cause I have no pictures but plan on getting some this weekend. Brennon is getting smarter by the second. He amazes me each day. He can sit and do legos all by his self and I can't even do that. Brooklyn is growing into a little mama and a DIVA for sure. They all three just got report cards and Braxton made all A's and 1 B, Brennon made all A's and Brooklyn did as well. I can say I am so proud of these kids but that wouldn't be enough to show it. I don't know what I would do without them. They are so string as they have been through a lot. With me and their daddy getting a divorced learning how to live two lives but they have done awesome to say the least. I feel the key to that is the fact that me and their daddy are really good friends and get along great. Which is no normal but I don't think I would have it any other way. Well time for me to get up and enjoy this Monday off with these babies.

Have a great Monday,


And I will leave you with a few more pictures

Lots of changes

The title says it all.. Life has changed so much in the past four months. Me and Nick are no longer together. I have thought about writing this post for about two months and feel like it is time. I really am not going into lots of detail about what happen but mistakes were made and lessons have been learned thru all this.. But most important we are civil for our kids sake and we are getting along great.. So things have been really hard on us both mainly thru the holidays but we are making it with this new normal we call life. Enough of all that now I wanna catch up on my babies :)
Braxton is getting so big its unreal Brennon is so loving and keeps my heart smiling at all times and Brooklyn couldnt be more like me each day and is def a princess... My babies have kept me going thru all this craziness. Without them gosh who knows what I would have dont.. Christmas was perfect kids had a awesome one and I wouldnt have it any other way. I dont have long but now that I am settling into this new life just me and my kids I will be doing alot more blogging and I look forward to that.

God Bless All

Back to School

It is our first full week of school this week... And right now as I type this I am sitting home ALONE
All three kids are at school. It is so quite around here and I am unsure of what I should do. Well I know what I need to be doing... Cleaning while no kids are here to go behind me and mess it all up. But 1st I wanted to post.
Braxton is now in the 3rd grade and since we moved they all are at a new school, but they know so many people at Woodland so they were all excited to start. It does not seem real that I have a child in 3rd grade. But he went last week 4 days and LOVED it so much..

Brennon is in Kindergarten and he went two days last week and after his 1st day he didnt want to leave school and come home. He said he had so much fun it wanted to stay and he was ready to go back.

Brooklyn is in Pre-K ahhh my last baby started school and walked into class like I was not even there, and she along with her brother loved school and didnt want to come home. She went Thursday and Friday morning while the boys were getting ready for school she got so mad cause she wanted to go back to school with them. So, this morning she was so ready to leave mommy and go see all her new friends and play

I am so lucky that they all love school and have tons of friends there. This afternoon we have to take Braxton to see a allergy specialist. He had some blood work done last week and it came back that he has some food allergies as well as airborne allergies. So I am praying we can find out what all he has allergies to so maybe he can get some relief from all the itching he does. Then tomorrow is a big day... One of my closest friends will go to Vandy and have a kidney transplant, so bright and early I will be there for her. Please pray that everything so well. Her mama is giving her one of her kidneys so prays for both Traci and her mama. Then we have cheerleading practice and Baseball is starting back up so back at it we go. I am also fixing to get Brooklyn in a Cheer Camp. We are going to so busy but love letting the kids do what they love to do. I guess that is it for now, I will leaving you with two pictures of the kiddos on their 1st day of school. Have a blessed week :)

This is my favorite my boys walking into school

Birthday princess

Wow time flies.. MY LAST BABY... is 4 years old. It seems like yesterday I went into labor 6 weeks early and was praying and begging the dr could stop my labor but we had no luck at all. So, after 16 hours my princess came into is world not breathing on her and I had so much meds I really do not remember much. I do remember tons of people being in the room when they said it was time for me to push. Then I remember looking over at this tiny baby blue and drs working hard to get her to breath, all I wanted was to hear her cry. And that I never got. She was born at 3:45am. 6am rolled around and I wanted to get up and go to the nicu... And they said I would have to wait a little longer and to a mommy who has yet to see the baby I just had was not something I was happy about. I knew they know what they were doing but I wanted to hold my baby. Finally around 11am I was in a wheelchair going to see her. With a million things running thru my head. And when we got to the nicu and walked thru I was so worried. This is what my baby looked her the 1st time I seen her.....

I know alot alot of moms have been thru and seen their babies worse off than she was but I had two healthy boys before her and never experienced anything like this.... It broke my heart to see her like that. But Our God is amazing and 4 years later this is what I was blessed with.

A happy, healthy little diva..... 

Happy 4th Birthday Brooklyn Renee mommy loves you to the moon and back

Summers almost over

Here we are and its almost back to school time. This makes me really sad cause I have enjoyed being with all three kids all day everyday. But on the other hand I am glad for them to go back to school. This year my baby starts PreK yep all three of my kids will be in school. So that means this mama will be getting a job. So please pray that it is the right job for me. And also not extremely hard to find. We are still in baseball everyday but Wednesday. We have a tournament this weekend, this tournament is the one Braxton went to last year and won the state.. So we are hoping to bring home another win. If not I ok with that as long as my baby has fun then I will be happy. 

Last week Braxton was practicing with a girls softball team and he got hit in the face with a line drive. Yes this mama was very calm  freaked out... We had to go to er to make sure no broken bones and he had ct scan and everything came back good. Praise the Lord!!!! So here he is waiting on his ct scan

And here are some pics I took before church last night
Brooklyn always says Mommy take my picture


Man I love this kids

July 4th 2012

 I had this dress made for her, she loved it
 One of the fireworks in town Tuesday night
 Braxton and his girlfriend Addy
 The whole crew
Addy, Brennon, Laura Beth, Brooklyn, Chandler and Braxton
all of them again but with a silly face

We had a fun filled fourth of July this year, we spent it with family and some great friends
Tuesday night we went to our towns big firework show and there Nick's step mom sat with us and our best friends Jeff, Tracey, Chandler and Addy as well as Laura Beth (Chandler's girlfriend) and all the kids loved the show. After the show all my kids went to spend the night with Papa and Granny so they could go swimming. So me and Nick just went home and enjoyed the next day alone and being lazy. Then he went and picked up kids and we went to my brothers house and had supper then off to watch more fireworks. We could not have asked for anything more... Being with our family and friends is the greatest. Hope everyone has a amazing 4th of July
