Makes My Heart Smile
I thank God each and everyday for making me a mom. I cannot imagine my life without my sweet children and I really can't remember what life was like before them. Most days around my house are, to say the least, chaotic. Each day begins with the running to make it to school and the running doesn't seem to end until I close my eyes at night. I love those days where God allows me to see that maybe I am not doing that bad of a job after all. Being a mom, I pray daily for my children's health, their happiness, wisdom to show them right from wrong, and for them to answer the call from God at an early age. Of course, at ages 5 and 2 I often question myself if I am truly doing enough to start them in this direction. Today, Sam, my 5 year old, was watching a preview for a documentary about King Tut. As he grew more and more interested in this, his eyes began to widen. When he was done, he turned to me and said, "Mom, that show is about King Tut. He was king of all the earth! But, Mom, we have a new King now, King Jesus." Wow, you talk about making a mama's heart swell! Then as he talked to my mom the other night, she was telling him about how much everyone loved him. He said, "Yes, Meme, I know, but I love God more than Mom, Dad, or Eli!"
I just thank God that he allows me to see small glimpses that His love is so tender that even a little rowdy five year old can feel and know it. I think about how God has used Sam, already so much, in his short life span. After losing everything I had ever known, God provided this special, loving little man.
Thank you, Father, for loving me so much. Thank you for loving my boys more than I can ever love them. And thank you for allowing me to see that you are all powerful and can even touch the little hearts that listen to you and want to know more about you.

Everyday is so Curious!

Fun with Curious George

Friday evening the Wyeths left heading to Vicksburg for a fun weekend. Curious George Live was stopping by and we couldn't miss it! Of course, half of the fun of any road trip with my little guys is staying in a hotel. Once we got there and got checked in, Sam's first question was, "Where is the pool?" It amazes me that, even during the summer when we swim almost everyday, he still LOVES a hotel pool. Guess it must be something different so we all enjoyed a nice indoor swim.

Saturday morning we woke up early all psyched to go see George. Eli sang and danced louder than anyone else and wanted to make sure that EVERYONE could hear him loud and clear. Sam, a little more reserved, also had a great time. We did have so much fun and mom even got a little time to check out the outlet malls! A little time to yourself never hurts, right? I am so grateful that the Lord allows our family to enjoy these outings. I feel that making these memories with our boys are some that we will all cherish forever.

My Little Fixer

This morning, Eli gathered up all his tools and decided to "fix" his bike after he told me it was "all boke". I am so thankful for these sweet little moments with my sweet boys and so thankful God chose me to enjoy them!

Snowing in Kosciusko!!

We had so much fun this morning playing in the snow! After a quick trip to school for Sam's Valentine party, we headed home and put on our snow boots! The boys enjoyed the winter wonderland so much it was hard to get them in for sure. Our neighbor, Mrs. Amy, even came over and joined us for a snowball fight. Sam and Eli loved tasting snow icecream with Meme too. My only complaint is it just didn't last long enough. After a nap, the snow has disappeared. I couldn't help but think about how every snowflake that falls, no two are the same. What an awesome God we serve. Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to see your beautiful hand!
