Who can actually believe it?!?!

So Carly turned 15 today! 15!!!! REALLY!!! She is getting her permit today and I just can't believe that someone is going to say "Alright...hop on in the car and drive it on your own!" Well they might not actually say that in so many words, but you get the drift! haha! Katy and I got her a sweet gift, but I went ahead and sent her a nice birthday email with some pictures of her and her new boyfriend! It is the actor from the Twilight movie and she was pretty darn excited to see the pics since she thinks he is "the hottest guy ever"...or something like that. I don't see it, but I still thought it would be funny!

You know who didn't think it was funny???? Daddy Brack....oops! :)

Hope you are all having a great day!

nienie Dialogues

I just added the nienie blog to my favorite blogs, and can I just say that my absolute goal in life is to be a fraction of the wife and mother that she is...

My sister Katy has told me all about this blog and the plane crash that her and her husband were in. I went to it right after I had heard her story, and was in awe of this woman that was such a wonderful mother and wife, however that was before I was ever a mom myself. I think having Luke has made me appreciate her on a whole new level. The way that this woman is with her kids and her husband make me want to be better at these things myself. She really appreciates life and all of the small and wonderful moments that make it up. turn...I have decided (only a month late) on my new year's resolution, and it is to be much better at appreciating all of the amazing things about my life, big and be more like nienie.

Pleae check out her blog, you will be soooooo glad you did! Love you all!

Luke's Baptism

I know that this post is a little late, but better late than never!!!

Luke was baptized on January 25th, and we had lots of our family there for support!

His Godparents, Jon and Katy, couldn't be there due to some pregnancy complications, and they were so disappointed, but my parents were able to stand in to help dip the little guy into the pool of life! He was such a wonderful baby (which I am sure comes as no shock to everyone!), and afterward we had a beautiful reception at Bama and Papa's house (Lori and Phil)!

Thank you to all of the family that was there to witness such a wonderful celebration for our precious Luke! We love you all!
