marellecone One of the best days...loads of people praying over my girl and many others, celebrating their #commitment to the Lord. It doesn't get much better than that. And, above all, #thankyou Lord for doing the work. You author it and You finish it! 🏻🏻🏻 #Godisgood #motherhood #meitupic #squaready 3d

marellecone My girl looking all grown up for her #girlsministries #graduation #friendsgraduate #ceremony. 😀 #soproud oh and she wants me to include #slaying. This way she "lets" me post this...but really I would have either way. #myperogative #motherhood #snapseed #squaready 4d
  •   itz_anna23 I was looking at this hashtag because I have it on my pic. I graduated for Friend's Girls' Ministries last night. They actually got rid of the class because they were doing other things for the Jr. High, but since my friend and I wanted to finish we were allowed to (we're the last ones). Congratulations!! 🏼 4h
  •   marellecone @itz_anna23 Awww thank you for commenting. Congratulations to you also! I think it's great that you still wanted to finish. I think it's a very meaningful program and a wonderful way to get your bible verses memorized. :). The verses I memorized as a young person, many of them I still know today. We gotta get those foundations built! 🏻. Again thanks for reaching out. I'll let my daughter know too. @g0lden_faith 3h

marellecone My girl and I went by the #carnival one more time, just to #seewhatwesee. And, we ended up running into some of our favorite peeps. #ValleyStream is very cool like that. 🏻 #swingride #ferriswheel #snapseed #meitupic #elsa 3w

marellecone Well we made it to the #valleystream #carnival to check out the food mainly. But, since also it's Mother's Day weekend, I used my #mothersdayprerogative and took the kids to ride with me on the #ferriswheel. I love how you could see #NYC far off in the distance. #empirestatebuilding #squint But, what I really see in this pic--from ALL the #geometry homework that I've been checking for Elijah lately is supplementary and adjacent #angles. #acute #obtuse #vertical #motherhood #snapseed 3w

marellecone I'm really cherishing this #whitelilac this year since I pruned my purple #lilac too much. So now I have no #blooms on that one. Which of course makes me hope that it's gonna blow up next year! 🏻😀 so loving the fragrance on this little bloom either way! #valleystream #snapseed #meitupic 3w

marellecone He's so #campchic. My boy isn't really into putting up a tent or sleeping in one for that matter. BUT, he scoured the area for firewood like a pro to keep our #fire going. Oh and he was looking for #bears. He defeated one recently in a video game so he wanted to in real life. ya I'm glad we didn't come across any! 😬 #motherhood #camping #snapseed 4w

marellecone I really like this pic of the #jeffersonmemorial from a paddle boat. #Paddleboats were my girl's idea. My boy said "I don't think this is a good idea." Well, we went. It was relaxing for me until Faith took us out so far that Elijah couldn't paddle anymore. so far we were almost late getting back! Quite the workout!! 😬 #tidalbasin #washingtondc #springbreak #snapseed #squaready 4w

marellecone For the most part, this trip has been easy peasy. Elijah only wanted to go home twice. 🙄 Faith found most of Elijah's faux pas hilarious which kept her laughing plenty. And, thankfully, I find their bicker banter somewhat entertaining, sometimes. We made it to the places we aimed for, which I'm especially glad for! 😀 #studythepast #washingtondc #springbreak #motherhood #snapseed 1mon

marellecone Well I almost wrecked myself doing it but I did it. I finished the series in about 18 days. In those days, many times I said I hate this show. But during that finale, tears flowed down my checks the whole time! literally....now I have to break the news to my daughter....you're never leaving home! Sorry, blame #gilmoregirls ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #motherhood and now I have a hankering for #philadelphiastory 2mon

marellecone My girl doing her thing at @lordandtaylor #gardencity #valleystream #vsyc #fashionshow I'm trying to enjoy bunches of moments with this kid because I see that she's growing up so fast. So fast that I'm thinking that I need to watch baby videos again. 2mon

marellecone Well I finally got it done. Thanks to @imusausa and my new #castaluminum #caldero, I cooked #arrozconpollo the way you're supposed to cook it! Of course, the #sofrito helped hugely also. Love that stuff. The best part--the kids ate ALL their dinner! #motherhood #goya #snapseed 3mon

marellecone Additional note to the birds: if you need me to let you OUT of the mailbox then the mailbox is NOT a good place to nest. Perhaps you've taken my kindness to feed you bread crumbs this winter as a sign of weakness or perhaps as an invitation to nest ANYWHERE you like. Sorry that's not how it works! :/. (You can't nest at the backdoor light either; I'm so tired of THAT war!). I take dominion and YOU CAN'T HAVE THE HOUSE! 😎 #feedthebirds #tuppensabag but #standyourground #nature #birds 3mon
  •   valleystream_ny Build a bird house with the kids! 3mon
  •   marellecone @valleystream_ny I already provide them food so sure I'll do their housing too! Lol yes it's a good idea though. Ooooo yes a two story!! 3mon
