the story........i was made for you!

The Story - Brandi Carlile

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true... I was made for you

i am her jungle gym

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do and I was made for you

my ballerina
 You see the smile that's on my mouth

It's hiding the words that don't come out

And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through like you do
And I was made for you...

great makeup artist!

beautiful face

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true... I was made for you

first solo concert!

love this face


my little zebra

Oh yeah, well it's true... that
I was made for you...

the move......

we had so much happen in the last few months it has been crazy and at times scary. 
moving with a 4yr old is the actually the most fun ever!
there were stressful times, but then when you have such a cute little helper the stress just melted away. 
she helped load the truck with her friend grace......they were actually amazing help!


amazing friends make things so much easier

loaded up

me and my girl ready for our new adventure! 

raymak's hideout
 funny thing is she didn't want to unload! so she settled in to her new hideout, while i did all the work!!!!!!!!!

we are done and takin the truck back!
 you know i was more worried about her and the change, but it did not phase this girl, she has not missed a beat! we are having a blast and loving our new life!
change is so hard, but so good!

1st night in our new bed!
i thank God everyday for this fun, happy girl who loves life, loves people and loves her mama!

one of the greatest nights of my life......

let me start out by saying that we have not been feeling good for a week now. 
raymak has had an ear infection and a little virus, and i have not been feel well. 
we have been home since last thursday and have left the house twice! i love it! 
i thought that we would be going stir crazy, but that is not the case! 
we have colored easter eggs......
working hard!
finished funny egg heads
bubble party in the sun
snack picnic and a little rainbow rice fun!
bird feeder
waiting quietly and patiently for the birds 
made a couple of pinterest crafts
bird's nest
our version of the coral reef!
rainbow unicorn

there has been lots of fun, lots of snuggles, lots of movies, and lots of sleeping!

tonight was one of the greatest nights of my life! 
raymak was feeling much better today and had lots of energy! 
her and our dog indigo were chasing each other around the house.....there was jumping on the bed, some screaming, a dance party and jammin on the keyboard!
we made our bird feeder, hung it up and she pulled up a chair waiting for the birds to come up to it. she called me out back and asked me to sit with her! we snuggled up in a blanket watching the birds for about 30 mins of pure perfection!
a little later a friend came by to hang out and check on us. he walked in the door and raymak went crazy! 
jumping on the bed, showing us "dangerous" tricks, there was a tickling match, a pillow fight, and she was a princess, then she informed me that i was the bad guy and dave was the handsome prince (lol!) hysterical! 
we ended up on the back porch (again). dave and rachel fought over chairs in a weird game of "you sit here!" then, (this is the best part!) she started to play eye spy! "i see with my little eyes.....ummmm......a magical star in the sky! now you mom!"
then.....she showed us how to make a wish on the magical star! she stood up, hands folded together, eyes closed............ "i wish, that there would be magical stars and rainbows during the day so i can see them with the sun, all day long" 
(i wanted to scoop her up and love her, and cry)
why do i want to cry? because she is so beautiful! i love her imagination! i love her dramatics! i love that she loves rainbows! i love that she is so articulate! i love that she has no fear! i love her excitement and enthusiasm! she is so precious to me! 
she then told the story of the magical star, which of course i can't remember and why i am documenting this now! 

hold on to every moment you have with your precious gift! even the small things are such a special experience with them is so important!

love my raymak!
