Birthdays and Such

When everyone is nursing their Christmas hangover and prepping plans for their New Years celebration, I celebrate my birthday.

Scratch that... I celebratED by birthday.

I'm sure most mothers have this happen to them. You start having children and all of a sudden your birthday slowly becomes just another day. Since I am the party planner of the house, there really isn't someone at home to take the reigns when it's my turn. I'm not really bothered by this, I suppose. Growing older has never really appealed to my liking. (Probably why I have decided that this is the last year I celebrate my actual age. From here on out it's 25 every year)

On my birthday (especially since we were cooped up in the house recovering from Christmas for days) the little monsters and I decided to get out and do some "esplorin" (as Mason refers to it).

I gave Mason (my decision maker) his choice of Fairhope (which offers a huge fishing pier, gardens, fountains, and geese) or, what they call, The City (which is basically downtown Mobile).

He chose... Not surprisingly enough, The City (They love downtown for some crazy reason. They may end up being city folks).

So we went exploring. We walked, we looked, and we pointed in awe.

Pointing in awe..... Right there, folks.

You know, this hasn't been the best year. I often find that I have some of the worst luck, but these little fellows getting excited over things that I very rarely take the time to stop and admire makes my heart smile.

New Year's Resolution- Life is what you make it. Time to make mine live up to it's potential.

And get healthy.... You know, because what's a list of resolutions without THAT one on there.


  1. Your boys are so cute! I love Mobile too, but we rarely get down there. My favorite is Bellingrath Gardens. Your resolutions sound like good ones, especially about getting healthy! We could all be more healthy, I think. Blessings from Northeast Alabama!

  2. Thank you! And I love Bellingrath. We actually go out there for their Christmas light display every year. It is gorgeous. I'm planning on taking my boys out there in the spring also when it warms up a bit. They love running around anywhee, especially somewhere with plenty of beautiful things to look at!

    Happy New Year to you! I hope it is a blessed one!
