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!

Lighthouse Family

Katie and I discovered a wonderful series of books this weekend.
The Lighthouse Family by Cynthia Rylant.

The books are about a little family made up of a cat, a dog and
some darling orphaned mice. The baby mouse is named "Tiny".:)

They all work together to tend a lighthouse and help friends in

Perfect for ages 7 to 10 or Moms that would enjoy a precious
bedtime story. :)

Lori, that book sounds so cute! I love the necklace you made in the post before this one! I decorated my house for Fall yesterday and it looks so warm and cozy now!!

Have a great day!

Those books look so familiar! I will have to get them for Noelle when she gets a little older. She is so enjoying the books you and the girls sent her. She can pretty much read them by herself now!

Been thinking lots about you sis-Take care of yourself,

Hi Lori
Those books look so much fun. I can imagine you all sunggled up in bed reading bedtime stories. That's something I miss now Jessica doesn't need me to do that! I remember a book that we got from the library once and it was about a wooden lighthouse that was miserable standing at the top of a cold windy cliff top so he decided to run away. He made it to a fairground where they turned him into a helta skelta! Such a sweet story.

I love children's books and this series sound adorable...with some life lessons snuck in there. Your jewelry is stunning as usual...a little late night craftin' going on, eh? :-)

I hope you are having a good week and the drama has died down a bit for ya...I have been keeping you in my prayers.
