Happy Mother's Day

I hope all the mothers out there have a happy and blessed day.... Happy Mothers Day Mom, I love you and you will always be my hero!!!! And Happy Mothers Day to my Mother in Law who I couldn't have been any luckier to have in my life. I love both of these women and don't know what I would do without them.

On to some new updates on April and Brandon's adoption of Harrison. They have raised all the funds needed at this point and now have a 165 page booklet to complete and turned back in before they can proceed any further. April was a little aggravated with their agency because they could have given them this booklet sooner. But we all know there is always a wrench thrown into the process every time.

Be patient honey, it will all come together in God's time.

I have a few pics I would like to post but I'm not sure I am allowed to at this time. So I will ask April and if she says yes I will come back and add them.

That's about it for today, hope everyone has a blessed Mother's Day.

And now for a Tuff update:
I know it's been a while since I have updated on belly pics and I'm sorry about that. So this is Ashley at 30 weeks
and now here is our little Tuff after his 3D ultrasound. We think he has his daddy's nose and lips. I think he is just the most beautiful little baby boy with his chubby cheeks and sweet little nose and lips. I really can't wait til he gets here.

Lucas Tuff Alford - Due July 15, 2009.
Well, after we sent BreeAnn off to prom me, boogs, Victoria, Ashley, Jordan and Dalton went to eat at Red Lobster and had a really good time. Then it was off to Lowes to get prices on blinds for my windows and a new rug for the dining room. Maybe next week I will have some before and after pics to show.
That's about it for this post. Hopefully it won't be so long for the next.
Have a Blessed week!!!

Well What A Break!!

My little break post got the attention of my sweet Ashley. I felt so bad when she called me first thing the next morning and asked me if I needed a break from her!!! Of course I felt like the biggest heal there is!!!! My week had just been filled with whining, pouting, depression, requests and I just got so overwhelmed and I wasn't dealing well with everything.

We are so excited about this opportunity that April and Brandon have to adopt sweet Harrison. They are almost at their needed goal for this process to move to step #2. It's really exciting and I will have my hands full when I both grandsons at the same time. I will have to get use to getting overwhelmed more often than once a month or so. HeHe!!! I think that will be a good overwhelming though.

We went and ate lunch with our girls today (except for BreeAnn) and then me, Tori, her friend Ashley, and my Ashley and Jordan went bowling. It was nice to go do something fun with the kids. Then I took Tori to get some new tennis shoes for school and a few things for summer. We had a great day.

BreeAnn's little concert got cancelled due to flooding here in middle Tn so it will be held on the 23rd of May the day after graduation. We have a full month this month and I am so excited about all the happenings. I will be sure to post some pics. We have prom this Friday, baby shower the next Saturday the 16th and then graduation on the 22nd.

I am truly blessed with my life and I am truly ashamed for complaining. I have a wonderful husband, wonderful children and will soon have 2( yes I said 2) grandsons this year!!! So I will think long and hard the next time I get overwhelmed. I thank my Jesus everyday for my family and all the blessings He bestows on me each and everyday.

Hope you have a blessed weekend and hope all middle Tennesseans have a dry one at that!!!!
