missing you Granddaddy...

On Monday morning my sweet Granddaddy went to be with Jesus. He was surrounded by people who love him. It was a bittersweet moment that I will never forget. I am already missing him like crazy. This week has been filled with tears, hugs and kisses, laughter, joy, sadness...pretty much a wide range of emotions. The Lord has shown me just how blessed I really am with my family. We have all been there for each other and will continue to get through this with the help of each other and the peace and comfort that only Jesus can give.

We miss his sweet and contagious smile, his little chuckle, his hugs and kisses, funny stories, witty sense of humor, kindness, his love he showed each and every one of his grandkids and great grandkids... and the list could go on and on-- If you attended his funeral then you would know that it sure could!

Miss you and love you granddaddy and i can't wait to see you again someday!!

Here are some pictures from some amazing memories with my granddaddy...

"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream." A beach tradition with our granddaddy and us kids!

kissing jakson when he was born..

this was taken just a couple of weeks ago...

Thank you for all of the prayers and thoughts.

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

This is my first time doing, What I'm Loving Wednesday, so here it goes :)

I'm loving all that the Lord is teaching me in my current bible study- Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed.

I'm loving that my house is CLEAN and laundry is done :) thank you Lord for productive mornings...and a cup of coffee :)

I'm loving my sewing machine and my awesome sewing teacher. Check out Henry's first little romper that i made him last night...

I'm loving feeling my little Henry kicking and flipping around in my belly. he is currently the size of an eggplant and i am sure as cute as can be ;)

I'm loving our playgroup and so excited to spend some time with everyone tomorrow at the park in this BEAUTIFUL weather!

I'm loving my beautiful family :)

and lastly, I am loving this verse at this current moment,

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Psalm 62:8

What all are you loving?!

cRaFt daY :]

This morning after breakfast the little man and i got out to run some errands. we headed to the old Hob Lob to look for a simple wreath that i could snaz up a bit with some inspiration from a few wreaths i have seen recently. i have a wreath hanger on my front door with no wreath hanging on it...and i have all of these fabric and ribbon flowers that i had made but no where to put them. i always look for a wreath like this but never find it so today i searched the WHOLE store. and what do you know?! i found them...hiding in the corner i never look at :) imagine that!

after a quick trip to walmart we headed home so Jaks could nap and so i could get a little crafty.

i also made these sweater flowers that i had been wanting to make with Josh's sweaters that he was throwing out.

i think they turned out SUPER cute!

Here is my finished product. i am happy with it and now i finally have a fun front door :)

i will leave you with a picture of my sweet little valentine reading his new favorite book:)

our week...

Unfortunately we are sick around these parts :( jakson is wheezing, which is causing him to cough, which is causing him to throw up...lovely. So he is on an antibiotic and breathing treatments. I have a yucky cold/sinus/water eyes issue.
BUT despite the sickness we had a VERY productive day. josh and i cleaned out and ORGANIZED our entire garage. we loaded the attic up with Christmas decor and other nicknacks we won't be needing for a while, and organized all of our bins of boy clothes and all of the other junk we have! it looks SO good and now we can park my car AnD his jeep in the garage!

then josh headed down to Atlanta for monster jam and left his sicklings behind.

after eating, playing and bath time jakson passed out hard. i got to finish laundry. yes that is right, laundry baskets are EMPTY and all laundry is put away. Wow does that feel good bc it never happens!

now i will catch you up on our week while my nails dry and i sit in bed :)

what a week it has been. josh was out of town for most of it, so jaks and i went to stay with my parents since we had something to do down their way everyday. it was a wonderful but busy week!

Sunday was the SUPER BOWL! we had a fun party at my parents house with LOTS and LOTS of food and family :)

Wednesday we went to the Childrens Museum of Atlanta with a couple of Jakson's friends that we hadn't seen in a long time. we had an awesome time...i will blog on that later in the week.

Thursday was a play date and then daddy came home!

I will leave you with some pictures from our super bowl party...

the jakson dance

Jakson man LOVES to dance. his newest move is the shoulder shrug :)

Sidenote-- i don't listen to kesha. she is probably the worst singer ever but we were jamming to the VH1 countdown this morning and that is what was on at the time.
