My heart and prayers are with this family

Please go by and visit this family. Tuesday is at home right now and they expect her to die within a week. I just can't help but believe that God can save her HERE ON EARTH and let her stay with her family, the lump in my throat is NO comparison to what her family has. Please pray for this family and mostly for the little baby, TUESDAY. You guys, she's just precious and she has a twin sister and two big brothers.

4 People to Play Tag with me and the 4th Picture

I've been tagged by Shannon from The Snow Family. What a sweet and fun mama she is, thank you for thinking of me. Hmmm, well I'm sure you're wondering WHY I have a picture of a goat, no? Yes? I wrote about the goats in my second or maybe third post when I first started blogging. I don't really know how to give you a link to that, but you might like to go back and read it if you feel led. Little Man goat is pretty cute isn't he?...he looks fresh and clean and I could just squeeze the cuteness right out of him. DArlingness I tell ya. Have a great day my friends!! Please don't forget to read the post below about a precious girl named, Tuesday.

Here are the rules:

1- Choose the 4th file on my computer with the 4th picture.

2-Explain the 4th picture that is in that folder

3-Tag 4 people to do the same 4-no cheating (cropping, editing, etc.)

Here are the 4 that I will tag:

1. Miss JC ....duh, my sister.

2. best friend @ A House Full of Boys

3. online buddy @Jillian Inc.

4. Caleb ...mine and Miss JC's "fake brother"

My sister {Miss JC} left me / you this comment yesterday. For those of you worried about hot's your answer, it won't hurt our kiddos ...Yea!

Hello my sister's friends..and some of mine! This is an amazing company...I am actually the one that made her sign up for this! No, I don't sell these, but one of my friends sells them, and they are amazing! It's basically a cute ceramic globe type thingy (sorry I'm sleepy) that has a bowl on put cubes of wax in, and a light melts the wax. They are VERY can literally stick your whole hand in the wax - just like paraffin wax- and it doesn't hurt, so you don't have to worry about injuries. The smells are FANTASTIC! Also, they are perfect for workplaces and dorms that won't let you use real candles because of fire hazards...

Exciting Smells My friends!!!!

In the midst of cleaning, making lunch and such, I started my own business!!!!!! You heard it, yes I did. I am a Scentsy Independent Consultant. I have been wanting to do this for some time now, just for the fun of it because I really like their products and they're WAY fun! I will be receiving my kit soon, but I can sell anything starting NOW. If you would like to go to my web page go here and check out the products, you will not be sorry that you did. Enjoy shopping or just looking...either way is great!
{My name is not on my site yet, it will be though.}

{Cleaning in Progress}

The two oldest are playing in the floor, baby is napping and I'm off to clean. I am dedicating my day to a cleaner home. I will NOT check on computer or even read an email for at least 4 hours. I am about to refill my Diet Coke, take a deep breath and tackle my kitchen. Main reasons to get it clean: 1. I feel better and the kids feel better 2. If my house is clean, that means I can start on ANOTHER project in my home. :)

Project: Need to put my cabinet doors back on with the hardware on all of the drawers.

Have a great day my you all.

B) pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

First, for the honesty:

1. I never thought I would want to live in a really small town. {I'm fine with it and I love it for my family.}
2. If I go to bed without my Burt's Bees chap stick, I get up and put it on immediately. I love the tingling feeling.
3. I partake in WAY too much caffeine throughout the day, I use to drink water all of the time. I miss drinking it right now.
4. I don't like listening to people that are not open minded, it hurts my heart and my head.

6. I feel guilty way too I'm not doing my very best.
7. I worry too much.
8. I'm really 55 years old
9. I don't like it when people whisper to each other in front of other people.
10. My husband makes me laugh so hard. So do my mom and sister.
Ok, was that suppose to be therapeutic? I think it stressed me out. Here's the dealy-o...I'm going to give this out to whomever wants it because that's just what I want to do. Is that bad? Well, that's just how I roll tonight. Here are my rules.
*I will pick the first 7 people who leave me a comment. In your comment...if you leave a smiley face then I will choose you...if you don't then I will know that you do NOT want to play.
*I will not judge you if you don't feel like participating. OK
Love you guys........

{I'm Embarrassed}

This is terrible, but I don't remember who gave me this award. If you are the one who did, will you let me know because I saved it so I could post it and now I don't remember who gave it to me. Sad stuff!!!

Happy Birthday To You!

B was born on Jan. 23, 2005. L was 2 yrs. and one month when she was born. I was so excited to have a little girl, I think for the first 3 months I dressed her in different outfits and took pictures of her.
Cousin A with B at Meme's house...they love each other so much!

The kids played in a watery ditch one day, it was completely disgusting!! Yucky! I did however run in the house when I saw what they were doing and grab my camera....then, I made them run for the bathtub.

My darling little grill (girl)!

This kid cracks me up, she is so funny!

Acting silly once again.
Happy Birthday to my little Princess, Drama Queen, Cheerleader, Tom-boy (at times) DAUGHTER! I cried and cried the day we found out you were a girl, Gammy and I raced to Room To Dream and bought your first pink outfit. I love you and have enjoyed watching you grow into such a sweet little person. Thank you for being the strong and sensitive person that you are, I couldn't be more proud of you than I already am right now.

Little Girl Thursday

Here is my little baby B before she turned one. Tomorrow she will be turning 4 and will officially be a BIG girl {in her eyes}.
Um, I'm not sure if I've seen a cuter picture. Benny has been a hoot since the very beginning, she keeps us on our toes AlwayS!! She is pictured here with friend Izzy B as L likes to call her.

Daddy and B at a fire station party for cousin J.

Summer time sweethearts after a nice swim.

Enjoying the water with Nini, Jeff's mama.

Sweet cheeks after a busted lip.

The little mama cooking at the condo {or Condor as L calls it}.

My baby girl will be 4 tomorrow, what an exciting day for her. The younger two kids will be going with me today to pick out stuff for the party on Saturday, decorations and food items. I have the entire house to pick up and clean, food planning {kid-friendly of course}, baking, cooking and preparing. Wish me luck!
If you have any lovely party ideas, food, decor or whatever...I would love to hear them. We are having a costume party/Hanna Montana (B says Hanna Ontana) party. Send your ideas my way. Thanks!

1. I will be making cupcakes
2. Pretzel Rods with white chocolate and sprinkles
These are the only thoughts so far. What would you do for snack food/lunchy food?

Must Have Sephora Items

I have had one of those crazy days that makes a mama want to come home and forget everything. The part I'm going to tell you about is the Happy Ending, because those are the best anyway. The yucky crappy day will be behind me.
Guess who came to my door earlier? The Fed Ex man, that's who!!! He brought me my Sephora items and I raced to the bathroom to try them out. I DID NOT wear mascara today, because I had a feeling my new mascara was coming, I was prepared for greatness.
Pic on mascara on left eye and let me preface this by saying that my right eye is a little smaller and lazier and doesn't it look better than my left one? Well, I think so.

Pic. #2 mascara on both eyes.

Pic. #3 just another pic. to show you how awkward I felt taking pics. of myself in the mirror.

Pic.#4 from left to right...Tarte "Lights Camera Lashes" 4 in 1 mascara. Tarte eye shadow duo in rose gold. Lancome Cils Booster XL is a base for mascara.
The Cils makes your lashes long and lustrous, FOR REAL y'all I'm not exaggerating one bit. They look like movie star lashes. The pics. do NOT give any of these products justice.

The last picture that has nothing to do with makeup: My lovely silver moccasins that my sis gave me for Christmas, love her and the shoes.
So, let me get to my point. After hmmmm, about a month of nothing seeming to go my way, lots of possible break downs, horrible nightmares about car wrecks and insurance and then my crazy affairs today...............let's just say, my makeup coming today made me smile! It's the little things ya know. {my life is wonderful, it's just been a domino effect lately with mishaps}
Love you guys!

January 20, 2009 {Inauguration Day}

Today is a huge day! Today is historical! Today we will swear in our first African American President, what a day! We may or may not agree with him politically, but I wish only the very best for the Obama family and for our country as well.

It is a big day folks, what will you be doing today or this evening?

Gosh, can you imagine how loud and exciting Washington D.C. is today...I bet it is an amazing site to see.

Monday, January 19, 2009


Not a whole lot going on here, my Monday is not interesting and that's ok with me.
The first picture on the left, big brother and big sister said that M was in the hospital. Doesn't he look a bit stunned.
The other two pictures are daddy and M watching bull riding in the kitchen.

Bull riding is fun mom!

Piercing Post

It finally happened! Little B got her little ears pierced today, she has been asking us for 2 years. She talked about it all week and asked if she could PLEASE have it done before her 4th birthday.......after lots and lots and lots and lots of talking it through with her (and without her) we decided to let her do it. The girls were so good with her and showed her everything they would do, I felt her tensing up when they got the ear guns ready....a quick little click and it was all over. She nestled her head in my chest for a moment then jumped down and said, "I'm ready to pick out some new earrings, come on mommy let's look." Whew. I just can't believe how well she took it, thank goodness two girls did it at the same time ...that is the key to the madness for sure.
Hope you all have a nice Sunday! Love you guys..

I read about baby girl Harper late last night, please visit her mommy's site. She and her family need our prayers. See the button in the upper right hand side of my page, drop her a comment and let her know you are praying for her baby. Thank you

For you...Impulsive Addict

FYI: Since you asked what a fleur de lis is a picture.

Impulsive Addict .......Distressing is when you rub (with sand paper) certain areas of your project to make it have an old appearance. I will show you the end result so you can see for yourself. OK
