Just my boys and I...

Mark has been out of town and comes home today! I can't wait to see him. It's been just me and the pups...they are always looking around the corner to see if he shows up. The miss him so bad and so do I! It's weird not have him around this time of year. I have 2 full weeks off from teaching and Mark has more than that off school so we have this time to spend together! It's so much fun. Mark has been helping a friend that has his own business. (check it out here...Expedite STL) Yesterday I woke and went to church by myself. Times like this make me so thankful for my husband. Yesterday my heart was heavy for single and widowed women. My grandpa just passed away recently and my heart aches for my grandma. I anxiously await Mark getting grandpa is not coming home anymore. (Though he is in a MUCH BETTER home...HEAVEN!) Church was the Christmas service and I just cried the entire time, I would love to blame pregnancy but I don't think I can. It's just so emotional. After church I went to Sonic for my "sweet raspberry tea." I love it and have to be thankful there isn't one to close to my house, I would go everyday. (At this point the babies may come out a raspberries...LOL) Today I was able to go with my sister-in-law to pick up my niece from school. It was so precious. We went back to her house and ate lunch. She is five and so just so fun to be around, she is turning into such a sweet young girl. I also made a stop at my mother-in-laws for a bit and ended up at Kohl's with her. GUESS WHAT...she bought me my first real pair of maternity pants. Yup, I took the plunge. Who knows what tomorrow has in store...I am just enjoying each day of this season. It always seems to go by so quickly. Mark and I will never have another Christmas like this one (meaning, just him and I) so we plan to just enjoy each day together! (I am not saying next year will be bad, just different with a set of 6 month old twins) Eeeeeee.....I just can't wait!!!


  1. SO exciting! Maternity pants are your friend. Well, until you get sick of them--haha! But it's a lot more comfortable!

  2. Your excitement is precious. Praise God on being healthy enough to go out and enjoy a fun few days!

  3. Merry Christmas to you & your family! Next year will be quite exciting!!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
