Splish Splash...

Today I stole Cole for school, lol, and took him the the YMCA's Splash Park, Needless to say I am hooked, it was so much fun.... They have a huge pool, awesome kiddy water park, I know I am not a mother, but I see myself there often this summer, I love the pool...

Cole had a blast.... and I enjoyed his company very much so.

Talk about baby blues, he asked me this morning if I would have a baby boy for him to play with, :(, I told him he would have to talk to God about that one, it was in God's hands, and at lunch at alicia's he was praying and alicia ask him what he had prayed for and he said for Brittany a baby, :*),,, Talk about a heart melting child, he's def one of them...

I love you Cole Brantly Allison, and I love his momma for letting me spend time with him....

Off to rest so we can splish splash next week...



Zane and Jaime stopped by for a little bit to test he waters to see how Zane would like it, I think he was digging the water shooting out of the gound...

Zane giving his mommy some loving...

Cole Playing

Zane Playing

He had to "PEE", lol...

2 minutes into the ride home, he was worn out...

Still clinging onto his new toy I bought him this morning, while he's sleeping, all the way from hilliard to callahan...

Got him out of his car seat, carried him in, and hes still our right now as I am typing this blog :)

He must be more tired than I thought...

Excited and ready to go splash some more,


A thrifty find...

So you may or may not like this, and please be advised that I never said I could photography jewelry, lol, but I found this adorable little necklace at a thrift shop, I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!

I was excited and had to share my unique find...

When will it end?

I have been absent from the blog world lately because to be honest I have been quite numb, and when I am numb how can I blog about my feelings when they are on mute.

My weekly recap starting on Father's Day.

Sunday- (Father's Day) I was sitting at Dad's when I got a text stating Mrs. Donna has passed away, I still don't know if I am ready to talk about this, I really don't know what to say, {{{Why, Is it true, This can't be real, Not fair, Unjust,}}} these are just a few things that run thru my mind when thinking about her passing.

Monday- Michael's Uncle Tommy took his last breath, now I wasn't very close to Uncle Tommy, I had only met him a few times, but he was a all around nice guy, and it was my mother in laws last brother to pass, which was upsetting for me, because I felt her pain, although I didn't really feel her grief and I don't know how it TRULY feels to loose a brother, I just felt sorrow, and pain for her, I can't imagine.

Tuesday- Down Day

Wednesday- Uncle Tommy's viewing

Thursday- Uncle Tommy's Funeral, Mrs. Donna's viewing

Friday- Mrs. Donna's Funeral, Which I barely made it thru, I found myself exploding in tears trying to keep quiet, especially when I seen Mr. Troy start crying, my heart was breaking for them, Have you ever felt someone's pain because it was so intense, and when Mrs. Donna's sweet beautiful voice was singing, and I knew it may be the last time I would hear her, *tears* I am going to move on, before I have to stop blogging again!

Friday Night- Just when I thought it was time to begin the healing process, I got a phone call, Big Daddy "Billy" passed away from a massive heart attack.

Saturday- I spent the day resting, emotionally I was worn down.

Sunday- I spent the day with the Lord, praising him for everything I have, and enjoying some much need time with my husband.

Monday- A new week, a new day, 6:15 pm, phone call from my uncle, Mr. Craig had passed away this evening.

My heart hit the floor, my mind was spinning,

Is this really happening, can this many people pass away in one week, and on top of that upstanding men and women of God, people who have touched thousands of lives, people who are way to young, and full of life still?

I still don't know if I have the right words for this, how can I blog about a person that was indescribable, nothing I can type or say with honor them the way they should be honored.

Mrs. Donna-
You have changed many life's and led many lost souls to the Lord, Word's will never express how thankful I am to have known you and shared many memories with you. You were responsible for 2 young and handsome boys who have blossomed into amazing young men. Derrick and Josh have already begin to touch so many people and I know they have great things in store for them. I love you Mrs. Donna, and I can't wait to be by your side with the king of kings, and prince of peace, the almighty, God.

Uncle Tommy,
Although I didn't know you very well, I knew about you, and from what I know you were a awesome husband, loving dad, and unforgettable brother. You have made your family proud, they love you and miss you terribly....

Big Daddy,
Oh big daddy, so many good times, so many memories, I laugh when I hear your name or think about you, I will never forget all of the 4-wheeler rides, nights at tera and billy's, the SWIMMING POOL, you are going to be missed by so many. You are the example of living and enjoying life while you still can.

Mr. Craig,
You have left behind the sweetest wife, and together while on this earth you touched so many and helped many come to know your father, God. I am glad to know that you will be waiting for Mrs. Paula, and she will be rejoined with you one sweet day.

I know that my word's haven't put a dent into what these people meant to me and many others.

I do know that this my friends, is WORTH REPEATING, and i hope you do the same and blog about what I am fixing to tell you, Jennifer over at the day's ill remember, blogged about knowing god, you can read he blog titled battle.

now it's my turn,

I have the sweetest, loving, caring, flesh father, my sweet daddy, i do love him dearly, but let me tell you, my spiritual father, is everything to me, words to not begin to explain him to you, he is always there, always loving, and always helping me get through hard times, he loves me no matter what, and he loves you the same way to.

Life is so short, and if you are reading this you are LUCKY to be alive still, and my prayer for you is that you know the same God I do, I want all of you to know that when you die, tonight, tomorrow, thursday that you are going to Heaven, as a friend said earlier this week, nothing on this earth is worth my spot in heaven, Please take this to heart and live it.

and if you are a believer and you share the same God that I do, repost this, I promise someone that reads your blog doesnt know the way and truth of life, help and brother and sister out.

I love you all, and I am continue to pray for the families experiencing a loss.

Praying, Praying, Praying, is the way of my life, it can be your's to.

Always here for you,

Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try to please "friends" they are never thankful or happy with you, like you are tiptoeing on eggshells around them. What ever happened to friends who were just there, I am so tired of hearing "you never call me", the phone works both ways, to be honest I am quite over it and those friends, if you never call me or respond to my emails, or when I GO out of my way to im, facebook, myspace, include you in things, invite you to things i am doing, but you NEVER respond or if you do its with an attitude then just leave me alone.... Just because we were close at one point doesnt mean we have to be now, people grow apart, and to be honest i am happy to outgrow many people...

I am just venting, sometimes it's easier to vent on here then to jump to an attitude and say something you cant take back.

I guess that's why God gave me a great husband, he may not want to ride around and take pictures with me, or go to the beach, or shopping at the mall, or sit around in pj's and watch countless episodes of the golden girls in the rain but he's a GREAT husband and really the only friend I need.

I enjoy have the friends I do, the relationships that doesnt require maintenance and upkeep, I have some friends I can go months without talking to and then talk and pick up where we left off, i just wish it was all that easy!

I am starting to go with the simple conclusion that if I have to work at being your friend then I give up and pass you on to someone else more deserving, and someone that will better compliment you and your lifestyle or outlook on friendship, the only thing I need to work on is being a good wife to the one that matters most, right?

Or is it wrong that I take on this attitude, should I try harder?

Regardless, I am over it.... Very much so...

Part of me is realizing I am not in highschool anymore and you do loose friends, I guess the ones worth keeping will always outshine the rest....

Once again, Venting lol..

Now I am off to get the house clean so we can enjoy the river tomorrow if it doesnt rain all day, lol..

Hubby is taking me to olive garden and to see a movie tonight after we go ring shopping for my anniversary present...

Have a dry and happy day! :)

Friday Afternoon around 3 or 4 we headed out for our 2 year anniversary vacation which I previously blogged about, we were both excited, although my husband likes to use his mocho attitude and act like he could care less, the typical guy syndrome, lol well i think this picture says it all...

When we pulled in I snapped a pic of the sign
