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!

Father's Day

First of all I have to say that my husband should win Dad of the Year.  He absolutely rocks.  He makes sure my gas tank is full, helps home school our girls after work, can fix anything, cleans out the cat's "glitter box" (even though he barely tolerates the cat), treats me to a cleaning lady, watches "chick flicks" with me, and the list goes on and on. Living in a house with 3 girls, he indulges us all constantly- with no (or very little) complaints.  He takes us shopping, to the movies and, oh my yes, out to eat.  The two things that he loves to do (that are not my favorites) are ride his bike and go geocaching.  He manages to squeeze these activities in occasionally, but for the most part he lets us do "girl stuff".:-)  
   Today we tried to make it exclusively "Daddy's Day".  The girls painted Jeff a tray and then Katie brought him cereal for breakfast.  He loved the handmade tray!  Later we went to Mimi's Cafe for brunch.  Yum.  Then it was off to see "The Incredible Hulk", which we all really enjoyed.  Yes, there was quite a bit of violence, but I just whispered silly things to Katie like "I think the Hulk needs a makeover" and we giggled together.:-)  Jeff attempted a few geocaches, but had no luck.  We went together for the last cache and were in luck!  Just the way to end Daddy's Day.:-)  The girls are so lucky to have such a loving, generous, goofy, sweet, smart, and gorgeous Dad!
