Six Years Ago

Six years ago on the 24th Keegan came into our lives. What a shock he was a boy, but he was a keeper. He is crazy and loud and passionate and the most loving kid I know. Seriously all he wants is a hug. He makes me laugh, which is a good thing because without that I would want to cry with his strong willed nature. The other day he said "mom, I love you.......that was news just in". That kid is a corker. I sure do love him!!

His birthday was spent playing with silly string, eating beef jerky, opening gifts, and getting fake tattoos "just like Daddys". We finished up the night with pizza and cake(a bunny by special request) and confetti poppers. He had a great day.....I went to bed with party belly.

My Heart is Heavy......

Revelation 21:4
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

Have I Ever Told You....

That I am a licensed cosmetologist?? Yup have been for 12 years now. And do you know what all those hours put into that beauty school provided me(besides meeting my husband there while he was visiting)? The ability to give my kids kitchen hair cuts. My boys were scheduled last night and aren't they handsome now?!

Next up? My girl has an appointment for high lights. Yes I high light my 8yos hair have for a few years cause the drying it out with bleach keeps it much cleaner in between washings.....

The Last Few Days

My dad had to shovel the grossness out before we moved it from the mans yard. It took 3 contractor garbage bags to do the job.

While the guys worked(my Uncle came along to help) the kids played. I watched from the bed of the truck to make sure they didn't get in any trouble and to be ready if my dad needed me for taking pictures ;)

Compared to how it looked when we got there this almost looks sleep worthy!!

Getting ready to head back to my house to do more work on it to make it road worthy for the near 8 hour trip back to PA.

The one cute find in the whole darn thing. Salt and Pepper shakers that will now reside in the lil' Lemondrop, cause well they are just cute.....

We couldn't work the whole time. Took my Uncle to the beach cause it has been a few years for him since he saw the ocean!
**can you tell my kids enjoyed his company?

The back curb side dropped nearly 12" on the way back to my house. The wood supporting that corner is completely rotted away. This is the solution the men came up with for the ride home.

Hitched up ready to go and getting our last good byes in. My kids (and me too) hate to see them go. It was so nice to have Pappy and Uncle Ronnie here for a few days.

Looking forward to future camp outs with great anticipation!!!

I love you Daddy!

I Spy With My Little Eye.......

Another Shasta Compact.

I just bought this beauty for my dad. I found it while looking at houses one day and forgot about it. It was brought to mind the other day when I saw a photo of one just like it. So after church on Sunday I told the kids we were going for a ride. Sure enough it was still sitting there so I thought what the heck I'll ask them if they would want to sell it, what would it hurt?! They said sure how bout $100. I said"Sold!" And then we looked inside.........

So dad is coming down this weekend to pick it up and take it home. I have no worries about how it will look when he is done. Look at what he did to the lil' Lemondrop!!

Grace and Mercy

.......some days that is a tough one for me to give. I don't like that about myself, but praise God He gives it so freely!!
