Hey guys! I'm just popping in to let you know that I promise I will post all our holiday stuff SOON. You've been asking and I've been slacking but I have been SICK! I am halfway through my SECOND round of antibiotics and I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Upon full recovery I will take the time to sit down and give you all a full report. I love everyone of you guys and I hope your Christmas was swell! I hope you all have a fantastic, healthy, and prosperous 2009! See ya soon =)

Confession Time

I love the "Free Credit Report . Com" commercials.

They make me wanna dance. Seriously. It's a shame.

And in an attempt to make myself look less ridiculous, I am going to tell you a secret.

My husband goes around singing "Priceline Negotiator" at random moments in our home.

Now that is RIDICULOUS. And I wish I had it on video to share with you all. Hmmmm....maybe I'll make that happen.

Here it is...............................

The following photo HAS NOT been digitally enhanced nor Photo Shopped. It IS an actual true life photo of me less about 8 inches of hair that would normally be there. I post this photo because all of my friends have been asking to see pics of my new do. I think they thought by "short" I meant just above my shoulder blades. Afterall, most of my friends have known me since my hair flirted with my pant loops. And I'm quite sure that some of these friends won't actually believe I went through with this until they see me in person and actually run their fingers through it. I should have probably crossed this bridge a long time ago but as we all know I have a perfectly round basketball face and we do not need to accentuate my cheek muscles ( I have cheek muscles insted of cheekbones...sad but true ) =).

Slow down........................

Thanksgiving is getting so close, I can taste the cranberry sauce.
And I just started to think about everything I do have to be thankful for. Sometimes I admit that I get caught up wanting more, wanting something else, and even envy other peoples STUFF.
It's just material STUFF and it is NOT what matters the most.
I am so thankful for God's blessings and I forget to count those sometimes and give God the glory for his everyday works in my life.
As our world changes, as our human leadership changes, as times get tougher, I am trying to SLOW DOWN and listen to God. And right now, I think he is telling me to be silent, be still, and appreciate what he has given me and entrusted to me.
I am so thankful for my two beautiful little girls that God has given to me to take care of.
I am so thankful for my husband who is my ROCK, my best friend, and my sounding board....God really knew what he was doing when he put Chad in my path.
I am so thankful for my family. My parents are so helpful and such a constant in my life. My little sister always has my back...even if we pick each other to death, we still love each other like crazy.
I am so thankful for a comfortable home, a church that feels like home, friends who surpass all expectations every single time.
I am so thankful for the little daughter's laughing together, the gifts of vision and hearing to take in this great, big world God has given to us, health, hilarity to get through the tough times, God's promise of eternity for those who believe.
What an amazing that's something to be thankful for.
I encourage everyone to take a moment and look around'll notice blessings piled up everywhere!
God Bless all of ya'll. I love you all!

Trick or Treat

SISTERS : The sweet one and the evil one. Guess who's who!

Aunt Carly and Courtlyn Bug in front of the Spooky Graveyard

Courtlyn, Carly, Taylor and Allie with the Shackled Monster

Dee (Tickled Pink ) , Taylor, Me, Allie, Carly, Hannah, Tim and Courtlyn posing in our finest

Our beautiful Goblin Girls : Taylor as Spiderella, Allie the Vampire, and Hannah the VERY scary ghost!

Spiderella and her mommy.

Hanging out in the Graveyard, resting our weary bones.

So.......have you been wondering what in the world I am?
Well, I am.......
" A little blue but I'm trying to look at the world through rose colored glasses. "

My Underworld Family

My cute little ladybug. I'm sure one day, just like Taylor, she will want to dress up as a scary, spooky monster too. So, I am relishing this sweet angel faced baby in her adorable, sweet costume and will remember in about 7 years how cute she was "way back then".

My beautiful Taylor all scary as Spiderella.

Courtlyn and Tim. She had the best seat in the house.

Taylor, Me, and Allie posing pretty!


Courtlyn and her Papa Bear warming thier hands by the fire.

Chad and Dad hangin' out.

Courtlyn loved loved loved to hang out by the fire. And the deal was sweetened with this little temporary puppy pal she shared her seat with. Mean old Daddy wouldn't let her take it home. Shame on Daddy.

Hanging out : Carly, Kerrigan, puppy breath, and Me
( with Allie jumping in from behind to bunny ear us! )

Can ANYONE believe my little Taylor is almost as tall as me and can wear my shoes!
And I know I'm her mom but she has turned out quite beautiful...hmmmmm......must be those good genes she's got =) JUST KIDDING!

Magan's Party and My Cute Kids.

Meet my dear, precious friend Magan - she IS the life of the party. Each and EVERY time. I love her fiercely. She is an amazingly strong female. And we can never have enough of those in our circle =) Right, Mags???
A Jamie Sandwich.
Those two beside me look like they could be related, huh?

Me with Shansheree, Mag's and Steph. We decided our Destin trip should be a yearly gig.
I haven't shared that conclusion with my husband just yet but I'm sure in another year he will agree with me that I am in desperate need of a "Girls Weekend". Isn't that right dear?

Carley, Steph, Me, Cristina, Mags, and Shannon

Just look at my little Titan Cheerleader. We suited up for "Halloween at the Park" on Saturday but we did not last long there. It was HOT. Felt like July instead of October. Where's our cool crisp fall breezes? I'm ready to bust out the long sleeve t-shirts and jeans. Instead I'm sporting jean shorts and sleeveless T's. Unbelievable.

Look at my little hippie. Throwing up her peace sign. Now that is truly unbelievable. Seems like just yesterday I was teaching her to make that sign but it was to tell people she was "2". TWO!!! Plus 7. Amazing. Absolutely Amazing.
