Mother Daughter Time

One of our neighbors has one of the most beautiful yards in the whole area, and they graciously said we could use it to take pictures in.  This evening Noodle Poodle and I decided to have a little mommy and me time, while snapping a few pictures.  What a great time we had!  She is so silly and fun to be with.  I am so proud of my little girl.  However it amazes me at how fast she is growing up.  This evening was such a wonderful one for the both of us, I do believe it'll become on of my favorite memories.

Backyard Campout

Yesterday the kids and I went outside to put up this HUGE tent my in laws gave us.  The thing about this tent, it has no instructions!!!!  In my mind I thought "I can do this, I come from a long line of stubborn women as well as men who raised their families building houses.... I can put this tent together all by myself!"  HAHAHAHAHAH  -wrong-  I finally got the tent up (now when I say huge tent, let me tell you this thing has two rooms in it... huge is the only way to describe it.)   Noodle Poodle had planned on "spending the night" in the big tent.  (Of course I knew this would last till 9:00 when the first noise she heard would bring her back into the house.)  As soon as she came in the house to gather her things we noticed dark clouds heading our way.  A massive storm blew in and ruined her idea of spending the night in the tent.  When we woke up this morning, the tent had fallen down. So much for my tent building skills. ;-)

1st Post

As I lay here watching Giggle Bear sleep, I thank the Lord for my many blessings.  I am so blessed to have two  wonderful and healthy children.  Besides the gift of Salvation, I believe a child is the most precious gift God gives us.
