The Weekends

I Love the Weekends.  Who doesn't?  2 days out of the week for time with the fam.

It's like I get to know my children a little bit more each weekend.  Time to talk to them, and watch them play is priceless these days.

With Sweet Jordan about to turn 3 in the blink of an eye, it's really crazy to think about how things have changed in a year.  We've gone from crib and diapers to full blown soon-to-be pre-schooler with an opinion, and sass, and a hysterical sense of humor and outlook.
She's my princess with a rugged edge.  Not too prissy, and not too tom-boy.  Just the right combination.  She's my be-bopper; just bopping around with her blonde waves, probably belting out a song at the top of her little lungs.
She loves her big brother more than anything, and seeing their connection is enough to make me cry...just thinking about it!

Drew Man is pushing 5 these days, and he is the most caring little boy I have ever known.
He's my sweet, loving, old soul.  He's best friends with both his Grandpa and Papa.  He's also best friends with Spike the dog.  Spike lives a couple hours away, and he gets emotional thinking about how he misses is doggy pal.
He's smart as a whip, loves to read and looks exactly like his Daddy.  He wants to be just like him and play football too.  Except not a teacher; no, he wants to be a train conductor.
He loves his family more than anything in the world.

I can't wait until.......we say it all the time.  It's true, the times ahead are bound to be awesome.  It has been, and will continue to be incredible watching my children grow up.

I love to sit and imagine my babies a year from now, and in high school, and all grown up.  I just feel it in my bones that they both are going to be amazing people and take the world by storm.  They show me that every day.

But, for the time being, I'm going to focus on them. now.
