I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter! I am just now getting a chance to post on our wonderful Easter weekend celebrating the Risen Savior! We had a wonderful church service at our church in Acworth, followed by yummy down home cookin' in Barnesville, GA at Nanny's house, Andy's grandma. Most of the Torbert clan was there partaking in the yummy food and gorgeous weather! Jackson got to hunt Easter eggs with his cousins Luke and Sarah and run around in Nanny's yard. The day before, we went to Andy's parents' neighborhood and Jackson participated in their Easter egg hunt as well. He found the prize egg and won a stuffed bunny that he fondly calls "Bunny" and sleeps with it every night! We are hoping for continued good weather and are looking forward to summer!!! Time to slather on the self tanner and SPF 30, woo hoo! I like to live on the edge you know.
Oh my! What a week! Today is Jackson's 2nd Birthday!!!! I know everyone says it, but I can't believe my baby is two! We had a birthday party with family and friends this past weekend at the Gymnastics Academy of Atlanta, where Jackson takes a class once a week. It was so much fun that I think even the parents had a blast! Jackson was in his element and had a huge grin plastered to his face the whole time. It was just pure joy to him and it made me want to bottle him up so I could carry that essence of him with me forever. They ran around and jumped on the trampoline, jumped in the pit, and did an obstacle course. But the real fun began when the instructor brought out the parachute! The kids just couldn't get enough of it! After an hour of tumbling and jumping we headed upstairs to have pizza, cupcakes, and open presents. The whole party went so smoothly with 15 kids mostly under the age of 4. We feel so blessed to have so many amazing people around us and miss those we don't get to see. Thank you to everyone for making Jackson's day such a great memory! We love you!
Andy and I met our freshman year of college and quickly became smitten with each other! Little did we know that 5 years later in 2003, we would get married and embark on a great adventure. We started our family slowly adding our dog Jake soon after we were married and then our other dog Sophie. Our family continued to grow in April 2007 when we welcomed our beautiful son Jackson Thomas into our clan. I love being a wife and mother and feel blessed that Andy allows me to stay home and cherish every minute with our little boy. Although life is stressful, it is also so much fun! To unwind after a long day with a toddler, I love to sew and scrapbook too! Thanks for taking a glimpse into our lives! We hope you will be abundantly blessed this year!
