Fun times

I can't believe it's the end of the year already and christmas is over can you? We have been blessed this year and have been having a wonderful holiday season, today Lauren and I went to one of the local antique shops and she found a chair and ottoman for her future apartment this next year. My husband and I went to the movies tonight and saw Blind Side and loved it, Sandra Bullock plays the role of a southern wife and mom to a "t". Rachel called me earlier and they had went to eat mexican and when they got in the car Jace was chewing gum and she asked him where he got the gum he said from under the table she was so grossed out as I was but then you gotta laugh....Barb

We love Iron Chef America and tonight was the christmas sugar battle with Paula Deen and Cat Cora on one team and Tyler Florence and Robert Irvine on the other team. Well I so wanted to be a judge everything looked so yummy and they served a candy cane cocktail that sounds so good. I'm sure I would have been in a sugar coma afterwards ....Barb

When Life gives you lemons make lemonade

I guess it's time to bring you all up to speed on everything that's happening around here and why I'm behind on my christmas decorating and baking. Rachel is getting an annulment after being married in August I'm not going into details but I felt like he was not being honest with her and after a few months she found this out. She put her house up for sale and it sold in 4 days and she close's the 21st of December we were not expecting it to sale that fast so she and Jace are going to move in with us for a little while until she decides where to move so we have been packing up her house and trying to store and move a little bit at a time. She's embarrassed that she put herself and Jace in this position, I pray that she will seek God's will and direction for her life. So for a while we are not empty nesters....Barb

I don't have time for this

This is me the last few days thankfully it's only a cold (no fever) but it's still miserable. I ran to walmart earlier and picked up some more cold meds and cough drops and decided to swing by the Hallmark store but started coughing and left before I could buy anything. With everyone being worried about the flu I didn't want people to panic so I'm home sitting by the fire in my pajamas and taking it easy. I hope to get my christmas decorations and tree out of the attic this week-end and get the house decorated.Hope each one of you have a blessed week-end....Barb

Who's Naughty or Nice?

This was taken last year at the Arkansas Children's hospital breakfast with Santa, as you can see Jace was not about to sit on Santa's lap. He was so excited to see Santa from the other side of the room but not this close. I have always loved christmas but it's so much more fun for me to have a small child around, and a good excuse to do things I did with the girls when they were small and they kinda seem to be interested in again. Advent started sunday so I'm excited to remember the real reason for christmas and all the traditions....Barb
