If you are gonna play flag football it is always smart to....

Be devastatingly handsome
(oh wait - did I type that - oh yeah - I am his mother -totally leaving it)

Not take yourself too seriously

Have a safe place to rest

Stop and enjoy the flowers

Make sure your mouthguard is in place

Be able to yell:

Always listen to coach

Always enjoy your teammates

Run hard and most of all.....
Have FUN!

November Days of Thankfulness

I am thankful for:






Yoga class

A husband who likes to hold my hand

Children who play with my hair and still call me Momma

Sour cream and onion potato chips

An online library catalog



The Little Yellow House

A church that forgives the church giggles

Activities that make my children happy and healthy and provide me with good friends.

The ability to stay home with my children

The education that will allow me to go back to work when the time is right.


Warm Boots

Belly laughs

Being able to call a friend and say, "I have to go first"

Date night

Stinky toes and bath towels with hoods

Keeping up with friends on Facebook and blogs

The ability to wind up a post when the moment of quiet has passed................

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!!!

The Best Part of Me

The best part of me is my eyes

because I can see with them

and I can see surprises

I can see colors

All the girls in my family have brown eyes

As written by my first grader........

Out of the mouths of babes comes the most beautiful of music.

When you lose electricity you learn.....

The value of cuddling

The power of fire

That necessity really is the mother of all invention

and a little light reading really helps pass the time.
Power is back on and the recovery effort (AKA about a million loads of laundry and a lot of work in the backyard) has begun.
