First Day of School Pictures and Top Note Card

Ready for school……and our last year with all three by the tree…….Allyson is starting her Senior Year, Lindsey is a Junior, and Sarah enters 8th grade. Sarah had to get a little “sassy” in the above photo…….always hamming it up! Charles and I took a photo with our Senior……..she was so excited!  Me, on the other hand, not so much.  Well, happy for her, but sad for the beginning of the end… These are all…

My Mother’s Day Report….

Good Monday morning!  I hope that each of you had a blessed day, or maybe even the entire weekend, and that you can rejoice in the mother who raised you, the mother-figure who cared deeply for you, or the grandmothers in your life.  I can celebrate a precious relationship in all these areas……..and a wonderful oppotunity to be a mother myself.  I have a unique situation to be a mother to three beautiful girls and…

Hardin-Simmons Visit

Allyson and I have been in Abilene the last 24 hours visiting Hardin-Simmons University.  We had a wonderful time, despite the rain throughout the morning.  We felt very blessed when the sun came out during lunch!  The afternoon was gorgeous and we got some fun pictures………and the drive home was much more enjoyable without the rain!  I will be back tomorrow with some stamping projects………give me a day to regroup — I’ve been gone for…

Prom Pictures

PROM PICTURES We had a wonderfully exciting weekend………but I am so tired and exhausted!  We decorated for Prom on Friday night until pretty late, baked desserts and got Allyson ready on Saturday, headed back to school to finish decorating, chaperoned the Prom, tore down/cleaned up after the Prom………and ended up with very little sleep in the midst of it all!  I wouldn’t change a thing…..it was so exciting to be a part of it all,…

The weekend is over….

WOW!  We stayed so busy this weekend that it flew right on past us…..and now we are back to Monday!  Seems like Mondays roll around more often than I’d like them too 🙂 But, on the other hand, it is a “fresh start” and one step closer to another exciting weekend.  This week will be a tough one for us, but very special, too.  We will be able to meet the baby’s new adoptive parents. …

Happy Easter!

Good morning!  I am headed off to see Lindsey’s performance of the UIL One Act Play this morning at 8 am!  They are performing for the HS Student Body today, so I want to be there to support her.  They did NOT advance to the next level, but I am so proud of  their work.  And they have had to be at school at 6 am each morning since the end of January!  WOW!  That…
