Man oh Man I love these guys





Did I mention I am so grateful to be the mother of these precious children? I have made a goal this year to live more in the moment and the biggest reason is to enjoy life with these guys. I have been reading a few inspiring blogs lately that make me want to be a better mother, wife, friend, neighbor etc, etc. Although I cannot conquer Rome in a day, I will spend a few more minutes snuggling, kissing and squeezing their little hearts out! Along with just relishing in the fact that Tanner loves Football and loves is a gigantic understatement. He is 7 and he breaths and lives for football. I am so thrilled about this too, because I am the football junkie around here. I love that Tanner asks me questions about the sport and certain NFL football players like I know all. I love that he truly believes he will be out there on Lavell Edwards stadium turf one day and I cannot wait to be in the stands cheering my guts out! I love that Mylee is so independent and loves to march to her own beat, but still quietly sneaks into my bed early in the morning just so she can snuggle with Matt and I and feel protected and watched over after a bad dream. I love that Brynlee screams at the top of her lungs and goes hoarse. I am loving her open mouth kisses and slobbers so much that she gets sick of me saying "Kiss, Kiss, Kiss." I just got these pictures back from my dear friend Whit, once again she did an amazing job. I love freezing time with pictures and I hope that when I look back at these in 20 years I will remember the things that they were going through at that time in their lives. Man oh Man I love them!

Oh Jen, these are beautiful pictures. Your kids are so darling, and I agree with you about wanting to live for the moment. Time is just flying by, and I wish it would stand still for a few minutes/hours/days. Tanner does love football. Brandon loves to have him over to play and when I see the football I can't help but go out and kick them a few kicks to catch. They love it.

What cute pictures. I love them. I too am trying to live in the moment but it is really tough when there is so much that needs to be done. It is all about taking a moment to breath and share little memories with the kids.

Jen, what darling photos. Isn't it great being a mother to children that are so different. Isn't it so fun that all in one day you get to be involved with sports and sport talk and then within minutes you are in the world of ALL girlieness! You are right being a mother is great and we need to all take it a little bit more each day!
