...passed away this evening. Katie loved to visit Grandma on Halloween (it was kinda a tradition to visit that day for some reason). I remember her first Halloween she went as a bunny, and Grandma just thought she was so cute! I am glad Katie was able to meet her Great Grandma. Kris and Katie went to visit her last week, and I am glad they were able to see her again before she passed on. I have faith that she is playing bingo with Jesus and the angels right now in heaven... B-2, G-7, O-9, I-22, N-4---BINGO!!!!
Oh goodness...my baby is growing up! First grade begins tomorrow. Tonight as I brushed Katie's hair, I just couldn't believe how much my "bald 'til she was two" baby had grown. She is so beautiful, and I can't believe that the elementary school years have begun already. Tonight she was so excited, and full of anticipation for tomorrow. I think she is most excited about taking her lunch to school and about not having to take a nap at daycare after lunch! She asked if she could take one of our green apples to school for her teacher, but they really aren't looking so good, so I told her we could make a special trip into Wal-Mart in the morning to get a nice big red one. I was so proud of her for thinking of her new teacher-all on her own. She is so very sensitive to other's needs and wants...and I just love that about her...along with EVERYTHING else. I love her.
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea and stay a while! I started this little blog in 2005 and am amazed sometimes to look back and see God's hand, his blessings and his mercy in the course of these last 11 years! He has truly blessed our family beyond measure! My husband Kris and I have been married for 18 years and we have three amazing kiddos, Katie, Asher, and Claire! I enjoy homemaking, crafting, trying new recipes, and mostly just being a "mama" all while on a super tight budget! Please feel free to browse through our archives! I hope you'll leave with a new idea or just a bit of joy! Thanks again for visiting!
