Reason # 981543 Why I Love My Husband…

I’ve been preparing for a craft show this weekend…that I’m also in charge of the planning for, which means I’m neglecting other things like laundry and my daily cleaning routine to sew and embroider EVERY moment I can. Yesterday as I was walking out the door to go teach the 3 & 4 year olds at […]

2009 Christmas Card Photo Shoot

Yesterday after church we headed to Chester Frost Park to take a few pictures of Jonah for the Christmas card. I was motivated by a great deal I found on 100 FREE (yes, I said free) photo cards. The deal is expired by the time you are reading this….I apologize for not alerting you to […]

Pumpkin Patch

We took a trip up the road to Dayton, TN to Brushcreek Farms to explore the pumpkin patch. When we got there it was sprinkling and a little gloomy, but that’s what the month of October looked like for us…there really wasn’t a good Saturday to go and we kept putting it off week after […]

Jonah Says…

“What are you doing, Momma?” Yes, I’ve heard this question way too many times this week. It’s Jonah’s favorite thing to say at the moment. I only wish he would wait more than 3 seconds to ask it again…or maybe if he would start to ask Ray the question of the week and give me […]
