A Sneak Peek

Here's a sneak peek of what my boys will be for Trunk-R-Treat at church! My boys are too excited about their new costumes, so I took them out today as they played dress up. They were having way too much fun! :)

Star Wars Clone Trooper & Elmo.

Wordless Wednesday

My boys are super stoked that daddy set up their very own computer to play preschool games on. When the boys woke up this morning, they were surprised to see their set-up in the living room all ready to go!

My sweet Preston (4 yrs old)

My silly & loveable little Noah (2 yrs old)

Tackle It Tuesday

My food pantry has been driving me crazy for such a long time now. Everything has been shoved in over time without any organization & I was having trouble finding what I needed. I also didn't know what I had & I knew some things were either expired or getting close to their expiration date. I'm excited to tell you that I finally tackled it yesterday. I can't believe how good It feels with doing such a simple task like this that I have put off for so long. :)

This is how messy my food pantry looked before.

I forgot to take a picture in the very beginning when I started, so this is the food that was on the top shelf all over my kitchen counters.

Awwww........look how nice & organized it looks! Now I know exactly what I have & I can plan my meals around it! :)

A Must Read

I came across this post on Heavenly Homemakers this morning I wanted to share with you. I thought this would serve as a good reminder to us all that our kids do matter the most! She did a great job explaining it to the tee!! I felt as if I wrote this post myself & I know most of you are in the same boat.

Thanks for that reminder- it’s sometimes a challenge balancing out being a wife, mother, teacher & house cleaner. God wants us to hear this today. As much as we think we can do it all......WE CAN'T!

My kids need to know their mother loves and cherishes them more than all of that other “stuff". Some days can be rough and I needed to hear that today! :)
