Ice, Ice, Baby.....

Font Porch on left and Back Porch on Right:

That is pretty much what is covering our roads this morning :) If you have ever lived in Texas you know that we don't get the beautiful snow at ALL! If we get anything it is always the ugly ice and sleet... Which is what it did for the entire evening last night! Pretty much all of the schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where closed today. However, that didn't stop people from getting out and driving in this mess... Ice is so much different than driving in snow (or so I have heard) I refuse to drive on it. It's not worth the time of wrecking my car and especially the deductible it would cost! It's starting to melt however, it's still in the 20's which is REALLY cold for here!

Today is my sweet husband's birthday. Jason is 32 years old today! I made us some beef stew to warm our bodies along the fire and his favorite thing to go with it is cornbread. After that settled I made him a cheesecake! His favorite dessert! I carved Happy 32nd Birthday Daddy in it with a toothpick.... no candles though.

Not sure really what else is going on today for us! I plan on catching up on all of my dear friends blogs today while the boys are napping!! I hope you each are blessed and staying warm out today!

Brr... Baby It's cold outside!!!

Boy is it cold here in Texas!!!! If you have ever been here you will know how crazy our weather can be It was soooo beautiful last week!! I know one day it even hit the 80's here..... Today however, it's 30 degress and dropping.... Some weather channels are predicting the worst ice storm here since 2003.... I however am not a cold person at all so we will be in ALL day until it's time to get Devin from school! Not to mention last night when we got in from my MIL's my tire sounded like it was leaking air so Jason checked it and sure enough...... He hopefully can get it patched today. It's always something huh!

Well.... I finished Me & Emma yesterday.... Guess I did get into it after all huh :) It took me a bit but, then I just couldn't put it down! For those of you who haven't read any of the Karen Kingsbury books they are definantly a MUST! Especially if you like Christian reads!
Today when the kids are napping Im planning on starting.......

Today I have been thinking on my many blessings!
I was watching Matthew sleep today and he just looked so peaceful! Then as I was putting Masons' underwear on he wrapped his little arms around me and said; "I wuv YOU!" Talk about melt your heart huh....... Then their is my Devin last week he was awarded StarFish of the Week at school..... (best student in his class for the week) Which for some is no big deal but, when you have a child with severe ADHD you learn to see the big picture. Not only that but, he also was awarded for top Speller and Honor Roll. Those may be small accomplishment's for other children but, he was so proud of himself! I must admit when we went to the Fish Rally when they called his name my eyes teared up seeing his little grin as he stood to get his certificate!

Im learning it's the little things in life that make it worth while! Im searching for a deeper spiritual walk this year..... I want to be a better wife and mother. A blessing to others! I have a purpose and this year I so wanna fill it!
Deuteronomy 28:2 (Amplified Bible)

And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God.

In the no blogging mood funk :)

Hey ALL!!

Sorry it's been so long since I have blogged.... Truth of the matter I sit down here and think of things to blog but, then just get out of the mood for it. AND I just seem to be super busy busy around here these days. Back in August I started watching a little sweetheart; added a 3 year old and newborn in November and then a friends little one in December.... Now I don't have them ALL together all the time but, between the one's I do have from day to day add my 3 guys into the loop and housework...... Well, hopefully you see why I have been so busy.

I have been finding time to do a little reading.... I go in spurts some weeks it's ALL about crafting, others cross-stitching and then there are the days I just wanna read! I have managed to read the entire Twilight series at the end of Nov/Dec. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!

Im also a HUGE and I mean HUGE fan of Karen Kingsbury and read this last weekend...I cried through the entire thing. My husband found it funny since it was "only" a book :)

Im trying to puddle my way through....... It sounded pretty good at Walmart. However, I think it will be one of those that I just have to stick it out and keep reading. Anyone else read this?

Not much else new for us..... Working on getting the taxes done, and laundry. I hope to next weekend start painting parts of our house. We have been here for 3 years and when we moved in it had just been completely painted through out. Well, the paint color is a VERY dark taupy-brown creamy color. I couldn't see in painting just yet but, now since the owner did not use a glossy paint mixed in with kiddo's hand prints on the walls, up and down the stairs.... yada yada yada and the best reason is it's just to dark for me! Im gonna start doing that I think!!!!

I have definantly been trying to keep myself busy.... The pain of losing my grandpa seems to lessen everyday however, I still think of him. I guess that is why I have thrown myself into a bagillion things here lately. I haven't had much time to be online but, I do adore and cherish the friends I have made here on blogger and hopefully....... this will get me back into the blogging mode! Goodness knows I need some more craft ideas!! Especially prim ideas!

love and many many blessings!
