Garrett's room is getting a make-over!

This is me and my youngest son Garrett taken last year on one of his field trips at school. He is such a precious little boy. He is a blessing to me everyday.

Garrett is so thoughtful and 'looks after me' everyday. He always asks me how I'm feeling and also how my day at work went. He is very mature for his age. He will turn 10 years old in May.

I am so proud of him. He loves school and has made straight A's all year. This picture was in our local newspaper of him and his friends after getting some awards.

We recently went to visit my youngest grandson in north Mississippi. My son Cole's baby. This is Gabriel. He is 13 months old. He has grow so much and so fast.

Garrett playing with Gabriel. He loves being "Uncle Garrett".

Garrett and Gabriel. He is so protective of his nephews.

Gabriel bit a hunk out of Garrett's new Nerf ball. Garrett wasn't even upset about it. I thought that was so sweet of him.

Garrett with his little nephew, Jason. My daughter Christy's son. I am so proud of him for playing with his little nephews and watching out for them. I just wanted to post about how proud I am of him and let y'all know that I am giving his room a make-over this week. He deserves it and it really needs it. I spent most of the morning just 'cleaning' it. That was a job! He is getting new 'old' furniture that use to be in his older brother's room. Just gonna give each piece a new paint job to make it look new. Garrett even picked out the colors. Can't wait to show y'all.

All grown up

Last month was my daughter's birthday. Her 28th. Christina Danielle. Amazing how fast these years have flown by. This post is for her. This was the first picture ever taken of us together. She was only a few hours old. One of the happiest days of my life.Here we are still in the hospital. She was 1 day old. I was almost 17.

Here she is with her daddy. We were both so young. He was 18.

First day at home with my beautiful daughter. She was 3 days old.

One of our Christmases at her grandparent's house. I remember it like yesterday.
My sweet little girl. Here she was at 2 years old.
Here she is at 3 years old.

I loved this outfit on her. All dressed for pre-school with her baby doll.

'Licking the bowl' at MaMaw's house. That's what we always called it.

Beautiful little girl.

Another Christmas...

So talented. She always loved to draw and color.

Christy and her little kitty. She always loved animals and still does.
One of her birthday parties that I had for her at McDonald's. I told her that she could only invite a few kids from school....and she invited about 30 or 40! She didn't want to leave anyone out.

Another birthday that we celebrated at home. She turned 9 that year.

She loved her barbies!
Here as a pre-teen with her same little friend.

Here as a teenager.

Growing up so fast.

One of our fun times together. We were at a casino in the restroom. We thought it was so pretty that we had a lady take our picture in there.

So glad that we were always close and continue to get closer everyday.

Christy and her friends after trying out for the talent show at the fair.

Here she is with her little brothers.

Sweet Teenager.

She has always been such a loving daughter.

She fell in love....

With a good man....

Married him....

Started a family.... Her mother-in-law and me with her at one of her baby showers.

My sweet daughter and my extra sweet grandson. She is the best little mommy. I am so proud of her.

We met for lunch on her birthday because I had to work. I gave her gifts to her at a restaurant in the mall.

She loved her "Daughter" bracelet.

Me and my little girl....all grown up.

I have so enjoyed our life together. My only little girl.

Thank you for being such a blessing to my life. I love you so much. Thank you for always being there for me. I'll always be here for you too. Pinky-promise.
