EC waited patiently for her cousins....

All the *aminals* are here now

We had so much fun. Thanks mommy and daddy for my party.

I Waited As Long As I Could

If you know me, you know how much I LOVE my gas logs.

Love. Them.

If it is below 50 degrees, this is where you'll find me. A lot.

I know. I know. Some people only love a *real* fire.

But this, you can turn on in the early mornings before work.

You can turn them on right after a shower.

Or right before bedtime.

Plus, we sell them.

And I love them.

Do you???

*It's a type of hibernation.
When the temperature drops,
She burrows under a pile of blankets
And waits for spring.*

It's true.I'm a hot weather kind of girl.
Tonight it's cool and rainy.
I had my pajamas on at 5:30................PM!!!

It's going to be a LONG winter.

October 10 is a bittersweet day.

We celebrate life.

We remember death.

We rejoice in His promises that we
will all celebrate together again one day.

My older sister, Vicki, passed away five years ago today.

I miss her.

We all do.

My baby sister turns 42 today.

How can it be that she was just 18 months....?

........and was just my little flower girl

Now she has this beautiful family

Tell me, haven't I been blessed?!
There is nothing like a sister
Happy Birthday *ABF Blue*
I love you.

A Brown Paper Bag

I love a brown paper bag.
There is something so neat and old fashioned about one.

So, hubby brought breakfast to me at work last week.
The breakfast was in this brown paper bag.

It reminds me of early school days.
And rye sandwiches wrapped in waxed paper.
And penny candy from the candy store.

Everything is plastic now.
I'll take my paper bag.
Thank You.

I was given this award.

I'm suppose to tell you ten HONEST things about myself.

I think you may know everything.

But, I'll give it a shot!

  1. I want to take my family to Disney World in a few years.
  2. The older I get, the more I dislike going to the doctor...any doctor.
  3. I don't feel my age.
  4. Speaking of age, it does not bother me at all to tell how old I am.
  5. I love being organized. It makes me feel secure.
  6. Two and three year olds are PRECIOUS to me. They drive their mom's crazy.
  7. I love to dine outside when it is above 75 degrees. Even if it is 95 degrees.
  8. Oh how I love gift wrapping supplies.
  9. I can't stand for my feet to be dirty.
  10. I need to have something to look forward to...even something small.
That's it for me. If you are reading this, you are tagged!

Bearing A Cross

I have a friend who seems to be bearing a cross that is larger than she can carry.

In my opinion, she deserves a crown.

I will remind her today of this:

*Those who faithfully bear the cross in
this life

will wear the crown in the life to come*.

Are you bearing a cross that seems too big?

This is for you too.

God is faithful.

Trust Him.
