About Me

My photo
I am a Christian. I am a loving wife to my Army-National-Guard-Recruiter-Husband of 15 years. I am a stay-at-home-mother to our four handsome sons. I am a photographer. My blog is about as erratic, eclectic and random as I am, painted with rainbows of photos and words that are hills and valleys you travel; so lovely sometimes that they hurt you. These are the stories of how far we've come in the last 15 years as Christians, as a family and as individuals.

How great it is to be a stay-at-home, full-time parent who gets to enjoy moments like these!

As I was at the computer just messing around, Hayden came to me with a roll of paper towels and said "let's play Momma". I wasn't sure what game he wanted to play with a roll of paper towels so I just followed his lead. I had so much fun just saying "I see you" throught the roll to him as we took turns with it. He was just so adorable, I had to grab my camera.

After the paper towel game, we started chasing each other around the house playing tickle monster, that's the best exercise a Mom can get, let me tell you! Tickle monster turned into hide-and-go-seek and I had a hard time not giggling when it was my turn to hide because when Hayden counts, at the end instead of saying, "ready or not, here I come!" he says, "Not ready, I'm coming!" It's so adorable! I just love being at home with this kid, I know it's 2 years away, but I'm really going to miss him when he starts pre-school!

This was my favorite hiding spot he found -inside one of the cubbies on our coffee table, he was all curled up in there, I must've walked past him at least a dozen times before he called out, "I right here, Momma!"

Then when he got out I started chasing him to "get him" and he climbed up on Garrett's Castle bunk bed and sat on the far rim and laughed as he said "you can't reach me now, Momma!"

I don't know if it's just me, but I love how he still calls me "Momma"

wow look at how flexi he is! Cute!
The girls love to play hide and seek but Marah is so funny cause she instantly starts calling out to you from her hiding spot the second you stop counting. She just loves to be found! :)

It is a joy to be a stay at home mom. And as I've said many times before you are a GREAT Mom!
Treasure each of these days and remember them fondly. They grow up and away all too quickly.
