A New Creation

We have been so busy since I last shared here and with subsequent posts I plan on catching up a bit on our recent goings-ons.  😉 In fact, with my “busyness” I failed to realize until today that Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday, as in three days from now. A few weeks back I pinned a cute idea on Pinterest for Mother’s Day cards. I hate it when I’m prepared, yet unprepared at the same time! Unfortunately, it seems to happen quite often. Hopefully, the grandmothers will forgive us when they receive these cute cards in the mail a day or so late. Continue reading »

Springtime Crafting

Crafting is one of my favorite hobbies and its even more enjoyable on a rainy Saturday evening when my boys are watching March Madness. (Sidenote: college football begins in 157 days… 🙂 )

It’s a week before Easter and I decided to make some decorations. Continue reading »

Hate is a Strong Word

HATE  really dislike pre-lit trees… Yes, they are absolutely splendid the first three to  four years after bringing the chosen one home from your local home improvement store. Then, about 3.5 years down the road , right after the warranty expires (imagine that!), things start going downhill and fast. Continue reading »

So Thankful…

On  this Thanksgiving Eve….

I am so thankful to be back in Georgia and closer to our loved ones. Even today, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Grandmomma and Granddaddy and my younger brother, and thankfully they have a shorter drive here than most of the other places we have lived. I love having company and cooking for everyone!

I am so thankful to live in such a beautiful area. I love being outdoors and living here provides many opportunities to get outside! One of the nicest things about being in the South is the weather, at least during the Fall, Winter and Spring. 🙂

I am so thankful for my husband. We have been together for over ten years and I hope to have another fifty. We love each other and we put up with each other. 🙂

I am so thankful that my hard-working husband has a job. Although we are making sacrifices for me to be a stay-at-home mom, I am thankful that my husband will do everything that he can to make this work and support me at home as well. Not everyone ENJOYS being a homemaker, but I can honestly say that I do.

I am so thankful for our two healthy boys. They are AWESOME. Yeah, they drive me nuts on a daily basis, but I wouldn’t trade being a mother for anything. Watching them learn and grow and hearing their sweet “I love yous” brings me so much joy.

Most importantly, my life would be incomplete without a relationship with my Heavenly Father. When I think about my Saviour and everything He has done, I cannot help but feel gratitude and love!




My Baby is Three!

“They say I’m old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!”  ―   Dr. Seuss

I cannot tell you where the last few weeks have gone…  Between lots of family visits, homeschooling, and my not so itty bitty (37.5 lb!) baby boy turning three years old this month, we have been keeping busy! With every birthday that passes, I am reminded again how incredibly blessed we are and so thankful for our two boys. Continue reading »

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Pretty as a Picture SnowI love Pandora radio… when I get a hankerin’ to hear some Christmas music, it’s only a click away. At the moment I’m enjoying Lady Antebellum’s Holiday station.  I know it’s only August and according to my Christmas countdown app on the Ipad, I still have 136 days, 9 hours, 11 minutes and 52 seconds until that special day. As much as I look forward to celebrating the blessed day, the anticipation and preparation holds just about as much joy for me. I think I may drive my husband a little bit crazy with my Christmas obsession, but in my defense there are A LOT of worse things that I could be obsessed about… Continue reading »
