Ready for SPRING!!!

I am so ready for springtime it's unreal! I want it to be nice outside for awhile. Yesterday I took Reese and Riley to the park in Hope, they had a great time and the weather was nice. I wish I wouldn't have had to watch their every move because there was also around 10-15 other kids there running around like crazy with NO parents there to watch them! Ugh! I couldn't hardly keep my eyes on them two for the other kids, some smaller than Reese, making me nervous that they were gonna fall or get hurt also! It was unreal how many parents just let their little kids play on the playground as they just sat in the car. So needless to say, we are ready for the playground at the school to be back! Or I'm gonna try to go during the week when it's hopefully not so packed!
I am going to hopefully plant some flowers this week or next and get started on working around the house outside! It has looked like a mudpit for the last couple of months! I'm ready for flowers to be blooming, green grass, sun shining, kiddos swimming in the pools and bbq's grilling!!!
Reese has had a little cold the past couple of days but got over it pretty quick, me and Justin on the other hand have been hanging on to ours for around a week or so now! yuck! Isn't that sweet that he shares everything with us!!
Reese's birthday is only a couple of months away and I've already been thinking about what to do! I LOVE planning birthday parties and picking out cakes and such! I get so excited!! All Reese really cares about is getting a big boy bike!!
Hopefully the spring weather will be here to stay soon and I will be motivated to get outside and to get moving! It's crazy to think about how lazy I've been this winter! I've got to lose some major weight and get some major sun on these white legs!! haha!
Anyways! Hope this week is great and the sun wants to come out to play for a while!!!

Potty training, learning our manners and catching up!

So I'm not as good at this blog stuff as I thought I would be! It's hard to keep up and update frequently! Well, here's what all you missed since I last posted! Reese is now 2 1/2 years old and quite the sweetheart. He's working hard on potty training and *almost* always tries to say "please" and "thank you". He always has to have his Pa take him to get his hair cut! No one else is allowed to! We have moved back to Spring Hill. I am so very glad we are back and I think Justin is adjusting well. This past year has been the hardest year I could ever imagine. My mom, who was the strongest and most caring person I knew past away after a hard battle with breast cancer. She fought very hard and never let anyone else know how hard it really was for her. She continued to go to work and keep up with all the activities she was so active in. This year has changed our lives forever, and is taking some time to adjust. I know God never gives you anything you can't handle and that everything happens for a reason but sometimes its hard to understand. She was the rock that held everything and everyone in place. So this past year we have working hard to pick up our crumbles and try to put everything back into place. It kinda gives me and mental picture in my head of how if something (like a piece of glass) breaks, you can pick up the pieces and glue it back together but somehow it doesnt exactly fit like it used to, it works but is somehow a little bit different. That's how life feels for me now. It fits and it works but its definitely a little different. Some how we all go on and carry a little piece of her with us in our hearts. Reese remembers her for now and I feel like its my job to always keep her alive in his heart. I want him to know just how much she loved him. We all know how much that was! :)If everyone would just please keep us in your prayers that we continue to have peace with this and the cracks get a little easier to fill.
