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!

Such a Pleasure...

We waited in line...

                    So anxious to get our books signed...

                          There were glimpses of Jim Bob...

                    and then we heard voices.  Singing.

             The most precious way to make an entrance.
    With a hymn.
    I started crying.  Just a little.

                           Josh was on one end.
        The official greeter.:)
        He was kind and confident.  
        Just as I expected.

                     Jill sat with Jennifer and helped her
      write her name.
      So sweet.

   He is my favorite.
   Full of mischief and as darling as can be!

        This lady is Jim Bob's sister- Amy's Mom
  if you are familiar with the family.
  She looks just like her daughter- so pretty.

           People had come from all over the country
   that day.
   It was exciting!

            A friend of mine attended a conference 
   where Michelle was a speaker.
   Michelle told the crowd that she explained
   to her children that one day they would no 
   longer be a big deal, "famous"- kind of 
   like a child star.  So, they live their life 
   accordingly. "Buy used and save the rest,"
   and such. 
   Very wise lady.

     The family was absolutely lovely.  They all
 dressed up and smiled for the cameras.

          Little Jocie is on the right!(above)
   Remember when we prayed for her?
   God is so very good.

             Every person signed their name.
     It looked like a yearbook when they were

         Mackenzie, Josh's daughter, hurt her mouth
  at one point and he was right there making 
  sure she was alright.

                 Fran- This picture is for Kaitlin.:) 

        The Duggars don't watch TV.  They watch 
   their show only when it comes out on DVD.
   Sam's was playing their show on a TV in the 
  store.  Guess what the boys are staring at?:)

     Once the line was done and things were coming
  to an end they were able to "let their hair
  I could not resist taking some pictures. 
  They are so darling!  (Josh was taking pics, 
  too. They are his family, though.  I'm just a

     See the young man in the pink shirt? 
   (above)  (Sadly, I do not know all the 
   children's names.)  He was sucking the 
   helium out of the balloons and then

 I can only guess what was going to happen next.:)
