thanks mom...

i spent mother's day at home with jackson and monkey. (jaden was out birthday shopping with her papaw)

we worked on the yard, played a little, had lunch, and relaxed.

it was very nice.

i didn't get to see my sister kidnapped her and took her shopping for the day.

so mom, i hope you're reading this. (i know you secretly stalk my blog, even if you don't leave comments.)

thank you.
for teaching me right from wrong.
the easy way and the hard way. who can learn if everything's too easy?
thank you for showing me the value of education, hard work, and family.
whether directly, or indirectly, you've shaped me into the person i am today.
without you, i wouldn't be a teacher, a wife, or a mother.
simply put, i wouldn't be me.

happy mother's day.

i was looking back through our easter pictures (sorry i didn't post any of those), and i found these of tweedle dee and tweedle dum...


(notice this was back when monkey had long pretty hair...long enough for pigtails. back before she tried to bring back the mullet by cutting her own hair.)

my girls...

just a few lovely shots of my girlies from a recent trip to the park...




i love this last one of monkey...kind of reminds me of alice in wonderland.

(oh, and this was shortly before she decided to channel johnny depp in edward scissorhands and give herself a new do)


this is what she did to her hair
