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!

I Love a Holiday

   Today started off with everyone having a project.  Mandy was working on embroidering an apron for Katie, Katie was working on a necklace for her Kid's Swap partner, Isabella, I was making flip flops (I got this idea from Lanny!) for another Kid's Swap partner, Paige, and Jeff was making homemade ice cream.  Katie was anxious to help, as you can see by the pictures!  Don't you love holidays?  Great family time to do anything you please with the ones you love the most.  Hope you are having a fabulous day!  
   The girls can't wait to do fireworks tonight.  I, on the other hand, am a weenie, as I worry someone is going to lose an eye or set something on fire.  Jeff told me that in his family they used to throw firecrackers at each other (all in fun, of course?) on the 4th.  Boy, they sure would have called me a party pooper!  I plan on sitting on the porch tonight and praying for the best.  It's only one day out of the year, so what's the worst that can happen?  Right??

That is so great that everyone had a project! The flip flops are so cute! I'm a big weenie when it comes to fireworks, too! Scared of them! My kids love them, and a friend shoots them off with them. Happy 4th!

Wow, it looks like you all had such a fun day! Your girls are so lucky to have a Mom like you, Lori - they'll always have fantastic memories to treasure ... (I'm also a fireworks worrier - they're pretty to watch ... but from far away LOL)
