For the past couple of weeks Jadyn has been waking up at normal time (7:00a.m). So, I tried getting her and putting her back in our bed. It's so funny. We don't even talk to her we just put her in the bed with us and put our backs to her. She goes back to sleep.
This morning she didn't wake up till 9:15! Casey took advantage and slept in and I got up and had a quiet cup of coffee! I cant remember when I have done that! So, needless to say....I hope it stays this way! Maybe not till 9:15 but at least 8:00!

If anyting I "caught" that was not "taught" to me by my parents was that they valued frindships. We would vacation with famlies, eat at each others houses, drop by without calling... So, I too love to do that as well and long for it more....a community
The Browns (who are good friends of ours/Crooms since 2000 when the came on staff with CO) drove from Birmingham to see the Crooms, Casey, Jadyn and me. It was so much fun to just laugh and be with "old" friends. We got babysitters (free babysitters--our precious students serve us all the time by watching our kids) for Friday and Saturday night!
We went out to eat Friday night and then Saturday night we cooked out at our house while the kids were at Crooms house two doors down. Can i say fun and fueling! Every now and then I wonder where the kids were....it was so quiet. :)
It really boils down to we have to make sacrifices if we value friendships....whether it means spend money you don't have to go out,cook out, pedicures, aquarium, getting babysitters, take off work, drive 5 hours with three kids (one who is nursing)...... it's WORTH IT!
Friends are worth it.

This is a tree that was planted when Jadyn was born. We gave it to Casey's mom for mother's day. It's so crazy how much time is flying by with Jadyn. Just this week she doesn't use her passy "pappy" and she's almost potty trained. It's so sweet yet sad seeing her run around in her panties! I could write more but honestly don't know where to start....another time...
