Thanksgiving feast

So today was the long awaited Thanksgiving feast we have been practicing so hard for.Every morning going over our 5 songs,making our costumes,stopping at Super Walmart at 5am buying 15 pumpkin pies, preparing to entertain and feed 150 parents! Oh how I love being a teacher! BUT the best part is that I get the up close and personal info on my kids everyday...

Here is Bruno or shall I say, Brave Buffalo!

Brave Buffalo all into the hand movements to the songs-He is sooo our entertainer of the family

Displaying his Indian bead necklace

Here I am in my glory! Not Grace but Mrs.Boyens and for today,Princess red lips! I think I enjoy dressing up more than the kids do.
Bobby,the proud father and husband.I told him I was dressing like Pocahontas and when he saw me,he asked if he could Poke me in my Hontas!!!hahahaha
Me as the proud Mommy and crazy dressed up teacher!

overwhelming sadness

Question? is it really worth the tears if no one sees you cry? Everyone is sleeping and here I sit crying. No one to witness the genuine heart ache I feel. Not that I want my kids to see me cry.I have worn my super mom cape many days, putting my emotions on the back burner,throwing on my happy face and making sure that they don't see me suffering.I thank God for blessing me with 3 demanding children to keep my mind occupied all day. But when the house is silent and I am left alone with my thoughts,I start to slowly deteriorate.The pain is physically exhausting yet my mind can't sleep.

Maybe the puffy eyes and the mound of snot filled tissues will give it away in the morning but I want to be validated now.So...I blog! I need to vent,get it out,talk,type,write something! I can't just sit here and cry alone.I have cried alone for the last 3 months. I have never been the type to hide my emotions. I am the girl who cry's during commercials not Mrs.Bad ass,hard core pillar of strength that I have taken on the role of.I know all the right things to do..lean on God,pray,call a friend,talk to Bobby to get it out but I don't want to! I don't want to hear "it will be OK",I don't want to hear"I am sorry", I don't want to hear how strong I am. I just want to cry and have my tears and my pain seen.

The most beautiful girl in the world

OK,I have made several posts about how cute/pretty Avery is over the course of the past 14 months but seriously...She is just stunningly beautiful. I am just so thankful that God blessed me with a daughter and such a beautiful one.

It started off as something silly but ended up as such an awesome shot! So us!!! There are many more that I posted up on my myspace if you are interested in checking them out!
