A New Year. A New Plan.

2015. A new year. A new plan.

2pm is the magic time around here. I grab my Bible, my phone, my Bubba cup of water, leftovers from the fridge for a late lunch and head out the door. Connor's buckled in his car seat in the back, content with his LeapFrog computer and video (at least for a little while). And we find our spot in the carpool line and just rest.

Sometimes Connor takes a nap (which he never does at home), sometimes he snacks or plays quietly. Either way, this is my quiet time. A time to be still. A time to grow and listen to God. A time to pray for my husband and kids (and myself) before the crazy begins.

Thanks to the #SheReadsTruth app on my phone, I'm staying on track to read through the Bible in a year, and it's been such a great start to my year. In a year of church moves, upcoming house moves...a lot of unsettling and change heading our way, this is what I'm going to cling to. The strong, the steady, the constant in my life. The God who never changes. And the sweet time we share.

The Best Thing

When Connor comes up to me sucking his thumb, his orange blanky lagging behind and says, "I need some lovins, Mommy." I'll look into his eyes, and he flashes me the cutest little grin you've ever seen.

And, because he may very well be our last, I take him up on it every chance that I can get!

Seriously, it's the best thing ever. I don't want this kid to ever grow up.

Connor's New Toddler Bed

We have put this off forever and ever (can we say...Third Kid Syndrome?), but with Connor turning three in early December and still sleeping happily in a crib each night, we figured it was probably time for him to make the transition to a toddler bed. You know, since he's almost fully potty trained and all.

So...the day my parents started driving back to Ohio was the day we made the switch! As you can see, Connor was super excited about the whole thing (hence, the constant jumping) - and I was just trying to hold it together. Ha!

Complete and total freedom. I think he's ready for it.

Mamaw and Papaw's Visit

My parents came to visit a few days after Christmas and stayed for a whole week. They were able to relax, catch up on sleep and come visit with us in the evenings - a perfect, laid-back vacation!

We made dinner reservations at the beautiful Mere Bulles sans kids one night.

We had a big family OSU vs. Alabama football party. Plenty of food and team fans included.

(And, yes, we were all up long after midnight to finish watching the game...the kids loved it!)

A little game time...

And lots of family dinners and family time at night.

The kids loved seeing their Mamaw and Papaw and are looking forward to their next visit already!
