Chocolate Birthday Cake

Nicholas turns 13 on Monday!! So today I made his favorite chocolate cake!


Almost done with Boot Camp!

Look at my son!!!! 😍 Thomas graduates from Coast Guard boot camp in ONE week! 

Today his group, X-ray 193, earned off base liberty! He hit the town with his crew. Got to have a good long shower, drink coffee finally and most of all – relax!

I’m so proud of him. I’ve been looking st this picture he sent me this morning, all day long with a big grin on my face. 

Love my blue eyed boy. 💙⚓❤

New Year

Excited for the new year!!
I have closed my daycare and am now working for the school district. Which means, I’m off work when the kids are out of school. I actually get home two hours before they do!! It’s been so great having some time. 

Our oldest son is currently in Boot Camp for the USCG. It’s been challenging having him so out of touch! Not at all like a child away at school. We cannot have any contact. He was able to call on Christmas. It was WONDERFUL to hear his voice!

Here are a few pictures. I hope to update the blog more often.
