As most of you know, I am originally from Tallahassee, FL. We moved to Athens in 2003. I used to go home ALL the time. Well, as time has gone on and children have multiplied, making it back home doesn’t happen as often. Well, at least not those “just because” trips. But this weekend….this weekend was SPECIAL. It was my nephews 6th birthday party, and, again, any of you who know me know I love a party!!!
That wasn’t the only celebration we had this weekend though. I also got to see the newest addition to our family. Little Dylan! He is the first son of my cousin Eugene. Oh MY what a sweet little baby he is, and he looks JUST like his dad.
We also had two teeth fall out this weekend. Aiden lost his first top front tooth and Lexi lost one of her molars. I hate to be THAT mom who doesn’t show photos of each kid, but really….I am not subjecting all of y’all to the back of my 11 year old’s mouth. Just the thought is a little…..well…..gross.
With all the great stuff that happened this weekend it made me miss my people even more. Those little everyday things that get taken for granted….like losing teeth, new babies, and birthdays…..when shared with family, become the great big deal that they should be. I love you guys, and will be back as soon as I can!
