Fat Tuesday Style

Fat Tuesday was full of good food, masks and beads for my boys at school.  It's the day before the lenten season begins and probably my most favorite time of the year.  When we reflect on the time leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus...this Lent I pray to do more in all that I do.  Forty days of doing not taking.  Forty days of sacrifice for others...forty days that I pray will lead to every day.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's day!  Your brother was super sick but you sure gave me your best sweetheart smile.  I may have promised you lots of candy in exchange for these pictures!  I love you more than conversation hearts and that my Rustino is a lot of Loving!  XoXo

Brotherly Love

Sometimes you love each other and other times you beat each other to the ground...but forever brothers you will be.  I love you both more than you could ever imagine...and I promise I didn't let you get hurt sweet Ryder.

I love you more than you'll ever know, Ryder Smith.  You pulled this telescope out of the box and told me you'd be able to see all the way to Mt. Rushmore.  This was a Christmas gift from Emmy and even though we never saw Mt. Rushmore...we could see all the way to the back of the yard....and to a 7 year old that might be the coolest thing ever.  I wish I could bottle you up and keep you this age age where everything is still magical and the world is at your fingertips.
