The Day My Life Changed Forever!!

**My Favorite Picture Ever!!

January 16, 2002 was such a wonderful/ scary day!! I'll never forget the birthday of my baby Will!! He came into this world with a bang~ a bang that shot my heart wide open!! He gave us quite a scare with the whole platelet thing- then the whole open heart surgery trama- there was actually a time I was very unsure if we would even have our baby Will for eight years or even eight months!! But God sent his angels to be with Will 8 years ago and they haven't left our side!! I am so thankful for that day and each day since!! Will has been such a delight!! He was the most incredibly adorable baby!! And he is STILL the most incredibly adorable eight year old boy!! I didn't think I could love him more than I did on that day~ but I am amazed I love him exponetially more every day!! He is such a smart, funny, strong, sweet, wild, handsome, silly, rough and tough boy!! Happy Birthday Will!! These have been the best eight years of my life!!

Just look at those blond baby curls!!! So Sweet!

Happy 8th Birthday Will! (Will's Favorite Restaurant, Pablo's, for Birthday Lunch with Grandparents and cousins)!

I am honored to be your mommy! :)

There has been a lot of excitement in the air around here recently!!
1. Alabama won the National Championship!! Words cannot express how excited I am about that!! We had friends over to watch the game!! We ate fried turkeys, cheese grits, red velvet cupcakes, brownies, black eyed pea dip, etc. We all laughed, screamed and almost had a nervous break down- but a lot of fun!! Roll Tide Roll!!
2. We had a Snow Day (but without the snow)!! :)
3. Will played his first Basketball Game!! He did a great job!! I am a proud Mommy!!
4. Will also got to go to a friend's birthday party~ which was at the Monster Truck Rally!! Good Times!!

***Next Weekend: Will's Birthday!! Yippee!!

One Word-

Peace! My hope and prayer for 2010 is for Christ's peace to saturate me!! This was also my theme during December~ it seemed like everywhere I turned I saw the word "peace". It was strange to me, because December and "peace" do not go together in my book! I think the Lord wanted to prove me otherwise, though. I am praying He will continue to work His peace within me this new year!! The other day I came across this excerpt from a devotional ~It was just what I had been needing to hear~ such encouragement!

"...receive My Peace. This is still your deepest need, and I, your Prince of Peace, long to pour Myself into your neediness. My abundance and your emptiness are a perfect match. I designed you to have no sufficiency of your own. I created you as a jar of clay, set apart for sacred use. I want you to be filled with My very Being, permeated through and through with Peace. My Peace, which lives continually in your spirit, will gradually work its way through your entire being." (Jesus Calling)

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubles and do not be afraid." John 14:27

Have a Peaceful New Year!!!

Christmas Blessings!

I always dread December, I am not a Scrooge, it's just usually this month finds us on the brink of financial ruin and I always get worried about how everything will come together!! God is so faithful, though!! He knows what he is doing and He has planned it all out, even when I haven't! We were showered with more blessings than I can believe!! He went beyond the imaginable for us and I am extremely humbled and thankful!!

An amazing blessing in December was that Clint and I celebrated 10 years of marriage!! We had a really special anniversary- complete with jewelry (for me)and a couples massage!! It was so wonderful!!
