About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Log Cabin Christmas




We went on a field trip to our local museum in Springdale. The theme was Log Cabin Christmas. We learned the ways that people in the "old days" celebrated Christmas. The children listened to stories and helped decorate a tree with pinecones, paper, and such. We learned that a Christmas tree was not decorated until Christmas Eve when the children were sleeping as this was part of the magic of the holidays. Life was simpler then with an orange or a piece of candy being an extra special treat. Katie and her friend, Ella, dressed up in fancy hats and looked so cute.
