Birthday & Graduation Day

You'd think my mama heart would blow to pieces…..everything happening at once.

IMG_0328This tall taste of lovely walked across that stage like she belonged on one.  

IMG_2677My heart just swelled with pride.  She's waited a long time for this moment.  

IMG_0325The funny part about graduations…is that they are merely a blip on the screen of life.  Some people revel in their high school days forever.  That's why they're called the "glory days".  But for Gates, I don't think that's how she feels.  Finishing her senior year out at Christmas was the right thing to do.

IMG_2698The day couldn't have been more perfect.  I'm so proud of her and I know….this is where REAL life begins.  Good luck on your journey Gates!

If watching your baby graduate wasn't enough — how about celebrating your oldest turning  2 3 on the same day?  Oh yea!  

It's been a doozy!  

IMG_0333I couldn't have asked for a sweeter son.  God was very specific in giving me one that would touch my heart in a very special way.

He rolled up his jeans to show off his new shoes from his sister.

He's tall & handsome … just like his daddy!

IMG_2704See, these are the ones that make my world go round!  My family is the best gift God has ever given me.  I thank Him for choosing me.  Everyday.

Now we all move on to a new chapter.  

Congratulations Gates!

Happy Birthday Gavin!
