Addictions

Do you have addictions in your family? My family, like so many, has been touched by addiction in a couple of different forms. We are so blessed though…at this point everyone is healthy and the addictions are not ruling anyone! I know not everyone can say this and that so many lives are riddled with […]

Teen Worries

Do you remember when you were a teenager and you actually lost sleep over such travesties as blackheads on your nose? When you considered a blackhead remover to be a need and not merely a desire?
As I look at life through my 13 year old’s eyes, I can remember these tragedies when they were mine…and […]

Losing the Baby Weight

Gah…I don’t even want to think about how much weight I need to lose. Let’s just say…I do NOT need any type of weight gain supplement any time soon.
Unfortunately, my body hangs onto the weight while I’m nursing. So…realistically I should expect to be on the heavy side for awhile.
Looking on the bright side…it’ll keep […]

Abby the Bird Hound

We have Ruthie the rock hound and Abby the bird hound.
Funny story:
We have always called Ruthie our little rock hound because of her passion for rocks. She hunts them up everywhere we go…literally…we cannot walk through a parking lot without her dropping to the ground to pick up at least one rock.
Abby…in her quest […]

One more Shopping Trip

…until we hit the road. You should see my list. Kitchen sink, you say? Yep…it’s there. In fact, I’m hitting most every aisle and tossing such an odd variety of things in my cart that checkers invariably comment on my purchases. I thought they weren’t supposed to do that…oh well, I’m not buying apidexin in […]

Ten Week Pictures

To celebrate Rachel turning 10 weeks, I’m sharing pictures!

Anyway…on to the pics!

She’s ten pounds of sweetness, loves to snuggle and we are loving […]

Braggin’ Mama

Have I mentioned lately how proud I am of my kids? Having nine…you might imagine how overflowing my heart is and how much I must be burstin’ my buttons. Every single one of these kids is an awesome person, and I don’t say that lightly.
They are successfully leading their lives as productive and giving people, […]

Shopping For Feast Gifts

Sheesh…shopping for the Feast is so complicated. Not only do I have to make sure everyone has church clothes and shoes enough to last for eight days, but I also have to buy any other clothes they need, things for them to do while traveling, Feast toys and other seemingly endless odds and ends necessary […]

Tucson It Is

Looks likely that we’ll be heading west again this year ending up down in Tucson. I don’t relish the drive…praying we won’t have need of personal injury Tucson while we’re there.
Two weeks from now we’ll be in the final crunch before leaving. Lots to do between now and then…sigh…I get tired just thinking about […]
