Ok, I'll be the first to admit that there are very little pros to having your children sneak into your phone...but once in a while I have to make an exception. I found around 150 photos of randomness that Scarlett captured while at my parents this weekend. All of the victims (myself included) were completely unsuspecting. But due to the fact that I took zero pictures while I was there...I owe her. Big time.

This is what I like to call "pure evil." Not halee's scary selfie, but the...da da da dum..."school supply list" ahhhhhh! I hate these lists. If you have a couple of kids you have to do this for, I'd like you to close your eyes and picture yourself at walmart doing this for SIX kids. Nightmare on elm street...that pretty much sums it up. Luckily, the bright light at the end of the tunnel means, kids in school soon. Back to normal life. No more fighting. No more killing each other. No more stabbings....ok that's going a little far.

I read recently about nerve impulses related to the smell receptors. Apparently theses receptors are closely associated with the part of the brain important in memory and emotion.
Sometimes I smell smells from my childhood and it's literally like being there again. It's very surreal and I even get homesick once in a while when this happens. Like biscuits from my Mamaws kitchen. When I smell biscuits, it's always going to trigger that part of my brain that remembers and cherishes this memory.
I kind of felt this way when my dad sent me this pic the other day. How grateful I am that when I see this photo I feel joy, safety, love, happiness. It makes me miss those days so much. I'm blessed that I had a good and wonderful childhood.

Forgot about this little gem of a photo that we took when my two sisters, niece and brother, along with my sisters boyfriend and his kiddos visited. It was super hot everywhere in the house except in my room...so we all piled up on my bed and laughed our heads off. My niece and I realized that chris was missing (since he was behind the lense) but then she quickly noted him in the pic above our bed...so even Chris was in the photo...in a weird kind of way.
My baby lost her first tooth today. For some reason I feel like she's still only two years old, and yet she's proving me wrong by going and doing a thing like this. She's been asking me all week in a whisper "is my tooth ready to come out yet?" And each time I wiggle it and say "not yet, but very soon." Well, when I checked it today it was time. She was so brave...she let me wiggle and gently twist it for a good 15 minutes before it finally gave up the ghost. I love this sweet girl. She's going to wake up a happy girl with her dollar under her pillow.
