My MIL just sent me pictures of Uncle Elbert's latest creation, and I have to share! Uncle Elbert is my MIL's brother, he put together a 15 Foot Snowman in my MIL's sister's, Aunt Katie's yard! It is made of 3 round hay bales. He has worked two days spray painting it! I think I want one for my yard. ;) Isn't this the cutest! If you want to see it in person, you'll have to drive to Centerville, Arkansas!
Writer's Note: Just found out, it was Lois Ann & Julie who did the decorating. Gotta give credit where credit is deserved! :)
This is the second year that I have been a SAHM. I always heard about Black Friday, but working for the bank the day after Thanksgiving was always "Red" Friday. If you weren't at your sales goals for the month, you were not going to have a bonus for December, because the bank was null and void to traffic. Last year I was out and about around 8 AM, and caught no sale items. This year, I decided to be a little more adventurous. My friend Angie and I met at Target at 6 AM, she is 7 1/2 months pregnant (I am so sorry that I drug her out and about)! Anyway the line was around the store, news helicopters were hovering, but we really only waited about 10 minutes to get into the store. I found everything I was after, had a nice talk with Santa ;), saw an old college friend, and then we were interviewed by KJRH TV. Check out the video, I am actually in it, boy do I need to start my holiday diet! Then we made our way to Chic-Fil-A, Kohl's, Ulta, and then Michael's. The worse place was Kohl's we stood in line for 1 1/2 hrs! All of my shopping is done except for a few odds & ends and I am so ready to get them wrapped and under the tree! We really had a lot of "girl" fun, and I hope we can make it an annual tradition!

Thank you God for my beautiful, healthy family. For my wonderful and loving husband Jason, thank you for bringing him into my life and being a wonderful husband, father, son and provider, I pray Lord that your will, will be done in his life and that you lead us to make wise and Godly decisions regarding our life together. Thank you for Braden, my beautiful baby boy, God you have a plan for this child and I give him to you, please give me the instructions that you would have me to develop him. Thank you so much for blessing me with a sweet baby girl. You knew exactly what I needed when you gave me her. Guide and direct me into also paving a Godly future for this child, I also give her to you.
Lord, thank you for my parents, my brother & sister, and my 9 nieces and nephews. Lord, you know their hearts and their needs, I ask that you bless them and keep them well and safe.
God, I ask that you be with all my extended family, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, for those who do not know you, I ask that you use me as a tool to lead them to you and if not me personally, please place someone in their lives who can lead them to you. Be with those who are ill and hurting this holiday season. Please give them comfort.
I pray for our country, for our leaders and for our future leaders. I know that I am not in complete agreement with our president elect, but I do respect the office and I know Lord, that nothing will happen unless it is your will.
I also pray for those that I don't know. I pray that you will send someone into the lives of the ones who do not know you.
I love you Jesus, Thank You! Amen.

My friend Carrie T. was telling me about this awesome book she was reading w/ her 11 year old daughter, I have to admit, I honestly did not think this would be up my alley. I typically read "adult" love, romance, and mystery! Then, all of a sudden I started seeing everyone's blog postings about this movie. I went back to Carrie and asked her, "is this what you were reading?" So, I broke down this past Saturday and bought the book and finished it Monday night. Loved it! I actually talked Jason into going w/ me today to see the movie. There really was not much talking him into it, considering he loves anything supernatural. I loved the movie, it was a little different than the book, but, Hollywood has to sell, and it did make $70 million its first weekend in the box office. I have purchased the next two books and plan to delve into them tonight! Now is where I tell you that I think I am truly married a vampire. What? Well, Jason loves the dark, loves cold and rainy weather, and, his bite isn't all that bad......:)

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 56.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the next two to five sentences.
Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the intellectual one. Pick the closest.
Tag five people to do the same.
So, the closest book to me is T. Suzanne Eller's "The Woman I Am Becoming", I haven't had a chance to start it yet. Page 56, ok, 5th sentence, found it.
On the outside, you would never see her personal battle. She's intelligent. She's fun to hang out with. She's one of those twenty-somethings that appear to have it all.
Okay, done now I have to dig deeper, Oh for a minute I was thinking that Suzie was talking about me until she got to the age. But guess what, she is talking about me. As women we "pick" on ourselves. I pick myself apart, thinking that I will never lose this 30lbs or this spare tire around my middle, my hair isn't perfect. I am letting Satan distract me from what really matters, I am beautiful........Wow, this book is going to be great!
Here's who I am tagging:
