Too sweet not to share...

They are watching SpongeBob or something else just as mindless --
but they always snuggle up together and he plays with her hair...
This is how Brian and I sit too when we watch a movie
(only I don't get so lucky to get my hair played with lol)...

Nursery School Program ~ Katie Grace

All ready for the moving up program!

Me with my friends!
"K is for Katie!!" (her big line) ;)

I love my brother!

My "graduation" present..
my very own Katie Grace doll.. Baby be blessed -- The Bible verse on her tummy reads:
"The Lord your GOD is with you,
He is mighty to save,
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his Love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
~Zephaniah 3:17

Staying Young

Holy WOW -- 2 posts in one day?? What in the world? Well, my sister Susan sent this to me in an email and I thought it was a good one to put here, so here it is!


We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are!


1. Try everything twice.
On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:
"Tried everything twice.loved it both times!"
2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if YOU are one of those grouches!!!)
3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain get idle.
'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,
spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.
6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.
LIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it..
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9.. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county,
to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
11. Forgive now those who made you cry.
You might not get a second chance.
Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

A Beautiful Mothers Day!

What a gorgeous day being reminded of my wonderful, beautiful mom and my beautiful babies. I love having a day that I can tell my mom how great she is... I know I don't tell her enough how amazing she is. I have one of the best moms on earth. God has blessed me so much with her. And what an amazing day to look at my babies and breathe an extra thank you to my Father in Heaven for giving them to me. They are so much my life -- and I'm so very thankful. Here are a few photos from our special day -- made extra special by those who love me!
My handsome husband who makes it possible for me to be a mother, thank you baby!
