I am so proud and amazed of Coco.
When I walked in and saw these notes on my weight scale I was brought to tears.
It says:
This right there
it doesn't show you
love you
it doesn't show
The amazing
person you are
it doesn't show
How increadibly
smart and creative
you are
it doesn't show
how loving and
caring and  positive
you always are
it doesn't show
how beautiful
you are
How you are the
best Mom ever!
I heart you
I have gained ALOT of weight in the past few years and I am trying to lose. I didn't meet my goal this week and I made a couple of comments this weekend about not meeting my goal this week.
I showed her a dress I want at Old Navy when I lose.
We didn't have a major conversation or anything so it surprised me when I saw these notes taped to the scale this morning.
I am so so proud of her, encouraging me and teaching me how to be a more caring person. She is just precious to me. These notes are something I will treasure forever.

I haven't blogged about Abbi Lane since we got her last year.
She has brought so much joy and pain to our home. She is still not completely potty trained which is so hard...
She is known by so many different names too, Abbi, Abigail Breslin, Abstract, Abstractinator, Abbs, Abigail, puffalumps, sissie, Abinator

This photo is from November 2011
This was taken September 2012.
This is the sweetest thing. She needs a haircut and I am ashamed to take her back to her regular girl. She got pancreatitis a while ago and was really sick for while so we have gotten off track with the groomer. I think I will take her somewhere just to get her cleaned up before getting her back on schedule.
I love her little under bite.

How could anyone not love this face? It is impossible
She was Coco's Christmas present but Scott has already told Coco that we will keep her when she goes off to college and when she gets out of college we will get her a new dog because this one isn't leaving us!!
Hahahahah Yep we love her!!

I spent the day in Elkins today to watch my niece
do a little cheer.
K Bug 

She and her friends did a great job.

It was also their Homecoming.
KBug was voted by her peers as
Queen 2012
It was the cutest thing. Brought back memories of my Coco having the same honor several years ago.
Another reason we went is because they were playing our hometown today. I was a divided fan for both teams. I went to junior high in Elkins so my sister and I walked around the old school and it brought back so many memories of 7th and 8th grades. Funny how some things haven't changed a bit!
Coco has her first little beau! He was also at the game today because his little sister cheers for our school. I finally got to meet him, much to her embarrassment. You know everything is embarrassing to her now. Cracks me up!! I may just do it on purpose just to get her riled up.
Now we are watching our Razorbacks beat Kentucky!!
Our team may be coming out of their slump!!
Also playing in a driving rain in the 3rd quarter, winning 49 to 0!
