Saturday Snapshots

Get ready for a bunch of cute baby pictures! Spending time at my sister's house with my sweet niece and nephew was the highlight of my week. I was able to go over a couple of days after school and I spent the day over there today. School was pretty stressful at times this week, so it was nice to escape and hold a baby or play Super Mario with a big, little boy.
I took Chick-Fil-A to my sister's for dinner one day and noticed the flag at half staff. It was sad news to hear that Truett Cathy had past away. I went to Atlanta in August and learned a little more about him when I went to the Dwarf House. What a legacy he left!
I really did spend a lot of time holding this precious little girl this week and I loved every second of it!
I have been listening to this song by Bethel Music over and over again this week. There has been so much rough stuff going on lately that I just want more Jesus. I give up the rough stuff.
We took a picture together on Thursday because why not?!
Then she woke up and stared at me. Hello sweet girl!
Sometimes the co-teach program that I'm a part of at my school is pretty legit. Sometimes it's incredibly hard. But all the time we want to make it work to the best of our abilities.
My niece sleeps in this sleep sack thing. She sleeps so well in it. It's kind of crazy, but magical at the same time!
His Froggy was playing Super Mario with us.
Another little girl and her family came over to visit tonight, so I gave her a turn at Super Mario. I was ready for a break. I'm not very good at it anyway.
I can't believe Saturday has already flown by. I'm looking forward to and praying for a better school week! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Saturday Snapshots

This week was full of sweet joy and some really rough days at school. Last weekend my mom and I went to a new grocery store to check it out. There was a horse ride that only cost one cent to ride, so we stuck a penny in it to see what it would do. There was music and everything. It was pretty sweet for one cent.
Last weekend I thought it would be a good idea to do some things around my house. I changed out the toilet paper holder and the towel ring, so the finish would match my faucets. Well they were easy to change out, but the new ones were smaller than the old. I thought this would be an easy change, but not so much. Now I have to paint.
I bought a new plant for the large pot in my front yard. I like it a lot! It's supposed to flower in all seasons. I hope that's true!
While I was working in the yard last weekend, I was watching the sky. It was beautiful!
I also put new solar lights in my yard. They're kind of cool. I felt pretty accomplished when I was done!
My baby nephew spent Sunday night at my house since Monday was a holiday. It was our last sleepover before his baby sister was born.
We went to the park on Monday and looked at turtles in the pond. There were a bunch of them!
He is such a big, little kid!
My newest baby niece was born on Tuesday. I took the day off of work to be at the hospital with my sister. She is absolutely precious!
I took breakfast to school on Friday for my team. It was fun to celebrate our survival of two weeks! It's been a wild ride!
As soon as I got out of school yesterday, I packed a bag and headed to my sister's for the weekend. I spent most of Friday evening holding this sweet pea!
I spent some time cuddling with these two cuties this morning! I'm grateful for them and for my family!
After a long day of baby holding and errand running, it's just about time for bed! I hope your weekend has been as sweet as mine has!

Meet Katelyn Paige

My youngest niece was born on Tuesday! I am beyond excited and grateful for her little life! Oh, the things she'll do in our lives and in our world. It's crazy to think that at the beginning of the week, we didn't have Katelyn yet and now she is a part of our big, fat crazy family! I can't imagine life without her! The picture below was our first glimpse of her. Isn't she cute?!
I was able to take off of work and spend the day at the hospital expectantly waiting to meet her and hold her. She is beautiful and wonderful in every way.
Her big brother got to meet and hold her too! He was so cute with her!
I'm so proud of my sister! She's a great mommy! 
Katelyn is such a sweet baby. She is so mellow. We are all so lucky to have her in our lives!
Katelyn Paige- You have brought such joy to our lives! I can't wait to watch you learn and grow! You are fiercely loved!
