Some Fun At Home....

Well... the kids think it's a great blessing to have lots of cupboards. I have so many now I can't fill all of them, so they found a little hide out.

I need my coffee in the morning..... LOL!

This is our sweet dog Sadie...
The kids love her and she's great with them.

Nothing like sidewalk chalk. By the time it was over with though, Christina almost looked like a Smurf. She decided to rub blue all over her face.

We raised the basket up to a full 10 feet and Ryan is doing great getting them in! Swish!

They love Saturdays... It means the ice cream man is coming!

Nothing like good 'ole Lincoln Logs!

I have teeth!

All personality!

How Snuggly!

Practicing his walking moves!

My Storehouse

My memory is like a storehouse

Strong and wide and tall;

I store God's Word upon each shelf

That lines my storehouse wall.

My work and play are brighter far

With God's Word on each shelf

If I need joy or I need strength

I reach and help myself.

I memorize one verse each week

Though I am only four,

I say it morning, noon and night,

Yes, sometimes even more.

I could not understand God's Word

By my own self apart,

But Jesus died and rose again

And lives within my heart.

I Believe....

I Believe...
That just because two people argue,
It doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other.
I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.
I Believe....
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.
I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.
I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with Loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
I Believe....
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.
I Believe....
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs
to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I Believe....
That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I Believe....
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down
will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe....
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them and less to do with how many
birthdays you've celebrated.
I Believe....
That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I Believe....
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.
I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
Out a secret. It could change your life Forever.
I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.
I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of
Hours by people who don't even know you.
I Believe....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.
I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
I Believe...
That the people you care about most in
life are taken from you too soon.

'The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

Though I didn't write what is written above, I believe it is true.

It's Been Awhile...

Well it's been awhile since I posted pictures of the kids and it's long over due... They are growing up fast. They just won't stop growing... : ) These are a few cute pictures from this winter.

It's been a bit cold for us Floridians this winter so Ryan actually gets to wear his hoodie.

Christina's 1st Pigtails!

Add a few wrinkles and that's what he'll look like when he's old and gray... Lol
