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!

Audrey Bunny Book Review and Giveaway! A Precious Message of God's Love





The winner is #6- Christy White!  Congratulations!!

My Thoughts:

Audrey Bunny, written by Angie Smith, captivates from the minute you see the cover.  Breezy Brookshire engages children and adults with her sweet images and rich colors.  My 10 year old couldn't wait for me to read it so she dove right in and read it to me!  (My 15 year old read it as soon as she saw it, too.  Pics below)  Oh my, how it touched all our hearts!  After each page we'd stop and look at each other like, "Oh, how sweet!" You know that feeling you get deep inside when you know you're going to cry- yep, Audrey Bunny made it's way there.  I was a mess at the end- and I loved every minute.  This is the kind of book that makes you stop and think of what's really important in life.  None of us are perfect, even if we appear that way on the outside.  The beauty of this is that God loves us no matter what.  He created us to be just the way we are.:).  I wish I could give copies away to all my friends!  Audrey Bunny, along with her sweet friend Caroline, is that wonderful

But I can do the next best thing. ;)

My favorite toy was a brown teddy bear with a music box in it. I don't really remember what color his original eyes were, because they fell out pretty early on. However, he still has his big blue eyes with silver around them. I think they were from a toy bracelet. Yes, I still have him! :-)

My favorite toy was my teddy bear, named Teddi Lynn Gildehous. I loved that bear. I was a little over 1 years olds when my mother remarried. My new daddy bought me this teddy bear and it was love at first sight. I loved that bear and I loved my new daddy. That bear went everywhere with me. She went in my car when I learned to drive. She went to college with me and she is still with me 53 years later. She use to be a pretty golden brown and she played music. But she had several operations and she lost her music box and well, she's not a bright golden brown anymore ~ but she still has that awesome smile.

My favorite toy my grandma bought me for Christmas one year when I was a little girl. It was a sewing machine that used glue, not thread... I just like to pretend I could sew like her!

I loved baby dolls as a child. I was still carrying them around when I was old enough to look a little silly. Apparently I didn't notice though. :-)
