Converstaions to remember

This evening was one of inquisitive questions, endless chatter, and heart melting innocence. I have to take a moment and get a couple of our conversations in writing so that I can look back when they are all grown out of those precious munchkin voices. As we are loading up the suburban for our weekly winter tradition at Chick-fil-A...

Mason"Mommy, I want Jesus to sit in the back with me"

"Honey, Jesus is all around us, and so are his angels"

"and he takes care of us when we get dead like a bug and go to heaven???"
Me"yes, that's right" *laughing


Kyle"Mommy(as he is fighting me to not lift him in to the truck, pointing at the moon)I want to put the moon in my purse"

"Ky the moon has to stay up in the sky"

"if I take it down it will be broken?"


"Mommy I don't want A(referring to her initial), I want M like you"
"but mommy picked out A especially for you"

"Nooooooooooooo, I don't want AAAAAAAA"

New Things

As I begin to get back in touch with my blog, I can't help but cringe everytime I look at it. I did the header myself last year and it is very outdated. My little slice of the internet needs a makeover! Any ideas?

Wordful Wednesdays!

As I find myself buried in full memory cards from my camera and oodles of pictures from the months passed, along comes a new idea...Wordful Wednesday! Hosted by one of my favorite bloggers, Angie, this is perfect for me!
I dropped out of the blogging scene for a while and returned to all sorts of new and exciting happenings! Ladies, let me know if I am doing this right?

This was a couple weeks ago when Nina & Grandpa were here visiting. Oh what a new day it must be that I can get these little monkeys to all sit down together and look at the camera!

Farewell 2008

Wow people. I can't believe the year has passed. 2008 was a great one....a year of change, growth, and learning. I was shocked when I finally peeked at my lonely blog a few weeks ago and realized my last post was kind of a dreadful subject and even worse, written over 6 months ago. Shame on me! I miss my blog buddies and the laughter and tears I shed over all of your lives. One of my New Years resolutions is to make time to blog. I started this as a documentation of my kids lives so that they could enjoy it one day, so I will get busy! I may rewind and post snippets of things missed in the last few months.

I am also thinking about starting a makeup blog. As many of you know, last year I had some tough decisions to make about my career. I was sad to walk away from my job at MAC not realizing what a wonderful & exciting path was in store for me. I couldn't be happier with how it has all happened. I really thought leaving would mean me never having a career in makeup, little did I know it was quite the opposite! Stay tuned for the new blog...until then you can check out if are interested in what I have been up to.

Best wishes for love, laughter, and continued blessings in 2009!
