Walkin in an Element'ry wonderland!!!

Children scream, they won't lis-in'
When they go, we won't miss em',
In all of this pain,
we try to stay sane,
Workin' in an element'ry school.
Christmas comes, they're excited,
Though our nerves, they've ignited,
They're off of the walls,
they run in the halls,
Workin' in an element'ry school.
In the lunchroom we can hear them yellin'
And we know that they are really wound.
Someone hits, the other says, "I'm tellin'
"And that is when our heads begin to pound.
Pretty soon we'll be restin'
Cause our nerves, they've been testin'
We're happy it's clear
It comes once a year
Christmas in an element'ry school!

Everyday is a Blessing!

Every year the Laneys send out a picture of their boys to everyone in the tri-state region. The past three years, they have had to let one more person in on the pics (me)... and this year...Ava had to be apart of the show...even though she decided to not look at the camera! ha! These boys are brothers to me that I never had. I am so grateful and blessed to have them in my life. Cal has an amazing family and they have always made me feel so apart.

Everyday is a blessing and we are learning to enjoy EVERY moment and not try to "fast-foward" to the next phase of our lives but to be happy right where we are in our life. This week I will turn 28. I never in a million years thought that I would be 28 years old and still not be a mother...but God has a different plan than I did and we can' t wait to see what his plan is. He is a an amazing God and His plan is perfect! I keep looking at Cal and thinking to myself the lyrics from that Trace Atkins song "You're Gonna Miss This"... We need to just soak up all of our alone time and know that one day in the next few years...those "alone time" moments will be few and far between. I thank God for all of the sweet moments that we have together. Our love grows more and more every day...I never know that I could love someone so very much! Cal is such an amazing man and he will always be my prince charming!
