Memory Lane

First of all if you prefer not to read about my life feel free to skip this post.

There is just something about this time of year that brings all of the memories flooding back. I remember before I had children and how fulfilling my life is now that I have kids. I remember all of the family gatherings we had before we moved. I remember how close me and my sisters used to be. I miss so many of these things. I miss those family gatherings that we used to have for no reason. I miss the closeness our family used to have. It saddens me to think that we will never have that closeness again, but I know we won't. It saddens me to know that the only time I get to see family is during the Holidays because we live so far away. Yes we are still in the same state but Texas is huge and it takes 10 hours to get to where we really truly want to be. Celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas with family.

Megan turns 2 this week. I can hardly believe that it's been 2 years since we had her. Where does the time go? It doesn't seem fair that she's growing up so fast. That Shane will be starting school next school year. It doesn't seem possible that she isn't that small sweet little baby I held in my arms such a short couple of years ago. I miss the baby smell. If you are a parent, then you know what I'm talking about. I miss the endless hours of snuggling and hugs. How they used to fall asleep in my arms. Don't get me wrong. I love the hours of playtime and one on one time we get now. I love that they are both old enough to walk and talk. I love to watch them run and play. I love listening to them laughing. I guess there are just things we have to get used to as time moves on. It just makes me a little sad and happy all at the same time.

Enough of my rambling. I'll let you all get back to your life.

Until next time. . .
