The 3rd Broken Bone...

Well, this past Fall our crazy redhead broke his THIRD bone! Yep, three broken bones in 3 years😩! He fell off of one of our youth’s backs and tried to catch himself. The day of was rough, but once he

{Christmas 2017} Polar Express

We had another great year at Polar Express! 

Grady was a bit grumpy at the beginning and refused a picture with the conductor... so Unc D took his place! Haha! 





Both boys were actually quiet, still and listening! I was surprised Grady was ;-) Our reader this year did an excellent job. He had fun voice changes for the people. 

And the biggest surprise of all?! Grady didn’t cry when he saw Santa! He actually smiled for a picture! Wow!

Thirty, Flirty and Thriving... or 35 that is!

Today I turned 35 (shocking for several of you to hear that I actually know my correct age for once, haha!). 


I am not a huge birthday person. I don’t dislike them, but I am not also the type who announces my birthday for a month to every person within 5 miles. Somewhere between high school and college, I determined that every time I set high expectations for how wonderful my birthday would be I ended up sad and sorely disappointed. Hyping it up just seemed to make any changes to plans dramatic and devastating, haha! So I just quit celebrating it really. 


So most years my family and close friends will do sweet and simple gestures for me, but nothing elaborate and crazy. This year was a perfect low key birthday in my opinion. 



Today we had church, and my boys and parents brought me cupcakes in ice cream cones- which is a childhood favorite of mine! My mom used to make these all the time for me and Misty, and her making them with my boys was the sweetest little flashback. 



Then we had lunch at home and my dad changed my brake pads and rotors for my bday, that’s what thirty-something adult gifts look like! Ha! I was so glad not to have to pay the shop to do it, I am so over large bills right now! My mom finished getting the boys clothes all updated in the right sizes, which is my least favorite task on the planet. Then we headed up to the Talton Gender Reveal- finding out our Redeemer Family will be getting another little girl in the nursery soon :-)

And tonight for dinner my guys and I went out to Chuys, which is pretty much our place. 


The day was filled with such normal life. And as I continue into my 30’s, I appreciate that more and more. 


On Friday, my sweet work family spoiled me with decorations (including my fav Gilmore Girls!), and delicious food! I also got the most practical but fabulous presents- coffee and breakfast bars! Ha! They get me ;-)
