Dallas Mom Heart Conference 2016


I was beyond excited to get to go to the last Mom Heart Conference in Dallas. I found out about Sally and Clay Clarkson's ministry when Ethan was about eight or nine. I wished I would have heard this message from the start of my motherhood journey. So thankful for the Love and Encouragement she pours into moms. No Legalsim or Rules to Keep or Lists to Check Off,  Just God's Love. She is AMAZING. I was so blessed that my sweet sister in law Tammy got to join me. We had a great time of encouragement. It was fun to spend one on one time with her. I Love her Bunches!!!!!

Ethan's 14!!!!!!


Our first born son turned 14. I can't believe how fast time flies. Ethan has such a sweet and loving heart, he is a defender for those he loves, he loves to laugh, he reminds his mama when she is being to serious or over the top LOL, he has a great imagination, loves Jesus, coffee, reading, and Medieval History.

This year was bitter sweet for me as he is on the brink of manhood. There is even shaving going on. Oh, how we love our boy!!!!!  His brothers and sisters love him Big. Cora came to me and said " Mommy I would like to buy Ethan a birthday present because I like him Alot." This is huge as she is learning to Love and be Giving in a family. She used her own money to get her Big Brother a lego set. Totally Sweet.

Other than the Lego set there were no other toys at the party. It was all grown Big boy stuff. He wanted an Anvil and tools to make his own swords out of metals. He has been watching you tube videos and studying and reading. He got his wish and got to work on it right after gifts were opened. He also got an amp for his electric guitar from his Uncle Josh and has been jamming on it everyday. Though he may need a head set for it. :) Who knew electric guitars were so loud in a house.

It was wonderful to celebrate him!!!!!!! With homemade Lasagna and Cheesecake per the Birthday Boy.
