Horseback Riding

Monday night’s are Brooklyn’s FAVORITE nights because she goes horseback riding. Thanks to my mom and Kristin for taking her tonight since Charlie and I were down at the hospital with Boston. She is doing so amazing riding and has a blast!


I wanted to post a quick update about Brooklyn. Bless her heart, things have been a bit hectic for her around here. She is adjusting and of course loves her Grammy to death so she is enjoying the extra time with my mom. It is hard because I want to be here and I also […]

Boston’s Blog

Boston Clark Butler Has Arrived!

Boston arrived via c-section at 1:38 today weighing 2 lbs 3 oz. He was taken straight to the NICU and will more than likely be there the next 9 weeks. Good news is he is breathing on his own! Please continue to keep him in your prayers! Hopefully Brooklyn will get the chance to meet […]


Brooklyn came to visit me last night…..she was slightly dissapointed that this “TV” would not play Dora OR the Wiggles! However, Aunt Kristin saved the day with figuring out the DVD in my room :) WIGGLES!!!! I had actually gone a full 24 hours WITHOUT hearing or seeing the Wiggles until last night ;) I […]
