WOW!!!! I can't believe that I will be 44 years old this week. I can say that I feel like I have been blessed through these past 44 years. I may not be monetary "wealthy" or have a lot of material things but I feel like I am rich with blessings that my Savior has given me.

He has given me the chance to be His child at no cost, He has given me a wonderful and loving husband, children and grandchildren, He has given me a wonderful mom that I miss so much and who happens to be my HERO!!! And He has given me sisters who I love and miss dearly every single day. He has given me a dad that I love despite our challenging childhood. He has given me a great mother-in-law, sister-in-law and brother-in-law, He has given me a safe home to live in, He has given my hubby a great job, He has given me LOVE......

So on January 1, 2010 I will be 44 years old and as I reflect back on all those 44 years I want to be thankful for all that I have and all that I have been given.

Hope everyone has a very Happy New Year and you are abundantly blessed throughout 2010.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. As we celebrated the birth of our Savior I was thanking Him for all the blessings He has given me this year. A wonderful husband and children and I have the two most adorable grandsons and one on the way, a healthy family and a home with food in the pantry.

We spent Christmas Eve going to the candle light service and then went to April's to have our family Christmas. I always love when all my family is surrounding me (we were only missing BreeAnn and Will) when we celebrate the holiday's.

It's been a while

Well it has been a while since I posted last. It has been crazy busy around our house. After we returned from our cruise it seems like I haven't stopped since. We had a great Thanksgiving and spent it at my daughter April's house and all the family was in attendance. And after that it seems that one thing after another has been going on. Just this past week we have had one mishap after another. My BIL that has a mental illness has been in and out of the hospital 3 times this past week and I think they have finally gotten him back on track. He may have some exciting plans when he gets out of the hospital so I will share about that as soon as we find out if these plans work out. So please keep him in your prayers.
I have also had these two little guys keeping me busy. Harrison is doing great! He is adjusting to his life wonderfully. We had his birthday a few weeks ago and I think he thought we were crazy! But he is so precious. He's still not to sure about us yet. I think he thinks all these extra people he has in his life are crazy. But I know he will adjust to us as well. We have been trying to help with Harrison so his mama can go to her staff meetings and I went to help with him while April got her hair cut and ran some errands the other day. He is definitely a mover and a shaker. He likes to be on the go.

And then I have Tuff and he keeps MeMe and Papa busy as well. He's not to sure about Harrison yet but I know they will be best buds before to long. Tuff fell asleep at Harrison's birthday party so we didn't get him in the picture with all the other kids. He had a stomach bug this past Friday then his mama and daddy got the bug the next day so they were all sick over the weekend. I am just so blessed with these two sweet boys. And then I will be blessed again next year. So I will be one busy MeMe. Now for some Christmas blessings......

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas......
