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 Forgot...


Here are some of my favorite pictures from the weekend.
Love these smushy faces.


                          The light in the evening was glorious.
          We even got some rain.  The girls danced in it.


                     I forgot how much I love fireworks.
      Not the ones you light yourself.  
      The ones that make you tilt your head
      back and your mouth open.


                  They were all around us.
     The girls wanted me to take pictures of
     them but I could not stop trying to 
     capture the colors in the sky.


            In the end, I just had to store the night 
    in my mind.  
                                       

               Jeff made the most incredible cookies
    and cream ice cream. I told him I did 
    not like homemade ice cream.
    Seems I forgot that I like that, too.


                                It was a lovely long weekend.
                
                                        Hope yours was, too.:)

Thunder Storms? That's putting it lightly - LOL. Noah needs to send the Arc. It's is however a great start to my "white" weekend. Come on over I'm about to get the hot chocolate started. :)
