Can I say that I've got the most beautiful kids ever!!

The other day it was just a normal day. You know kids running around all crazy cracking me up and also trying my patience. The winter is always hard on my kids since they love being outside and since they can't spend as much time out there they get bored which means they get into trouble. Well this other day I was watching them and I had one of those moments that I just couldn't help but think that I was so thankful that these two little people belong to me. I get to raise them and show them how to be great adults. How lucky am I?!? They are perfect, beautiful!! And I've got a perfect husband helping me in it.  I'm  so grateful for my life. Sure it's not always happy go lucky here. But to me a perfect life has challenges. I love being a mom, love my husband and my perfect kids. They are growing up so fast and before I know it they will be all grown up.

These two little people have made me a better person in every way. I've learned to be more patient then I ever have been, they have shown me so much love more then I could ever imagine and I love them more then anything else. I never thought that I could love anyone as deeply as I love them . They truly are everything to me and have been since I first layed my eyes on them. Being a mom has been the biggest gift I have ever received.  I'm so grateful for them and my family.

Remember This?

So on one of these cold days the kids were getting bored and Justin and I were out of patience.  I was trying to think of something to do and I remembered this from when I was a kid.  I used to LOVE sliding down the stairs in a sleeping bag!  So we got all of the pillows and blankets in the house, piled them up at the bottom of the stairs got a sleeping bag and down they went!  The kids also LOVED it!

So Halloween this year was soo much fun!  Although I've got to say that it is a lot of work!  My kids are old enough now that they want to dress up as certain things and they want it done their way and no other.  It's kind of heart breaking in a way.  It just means that they are growing up and mom just isn't cool.  (Aren't they still too young for that?)  Brantley started the day off kind of on a bumpy start.  He didn't want to have a mustache painted on for his school party but I thought that what is captain hook without a mustache?  He needed one!  So I tried to convince him of this and drew it on.  He still didn't like it but we were out of time and late for school so I told him to just deal with it.  He told me that I didn't know what was cool and that painting his face was not cool.  Sad moment!  I'm not cool!  (I should have just wiped it off but I thought he'd warm up to it.  I was wrong).  He ended up crying most of the first half of the party and hiding.  I felt so bad.  He was embarrassed and it wasn't the normal school routine.  He warmed up after a while and had a great time the second half. 
Trick-or-treating was great though!  By the end of the day Brantley decided that he wanted the mustache and we painted it back on for the night.  Lilley and Brantley loved it!  Our neighborhood decided not to do trunk or treating so we actually got a lot of kids trick-or-treating this year.  We even ran out of candy! It really was a great day (well after the morning melt down).  Justin even dressed up!!
