It’s POPPY DIP TIME! Just ordered 4 Poppy Dips and here is the first that arrived yesterday! I couldn’t STAND not to put my girl in one this morning. OK…so be quick because she is taking a holiday break starting next Tuesday…if you want one—zip over to and put your order in. And feel […]

God has us where we are for a purpose…

We received out new waitlist number last week in perfect timing (from 28 to 26). I had been discouraged earlier in the week realizing that I was standing in a line—what felt like a long line—while there were and are approximately 145,000,000 orphans in the world. To me, the line waiting didn’t (and doesn’t) always […]

Yay! Steal away Emily!!! Isn't that the MOST fun! We bought numbers to go on the stairs of our basement too. So fun. I love hearing little voices count the numbers as they go up:). So sweet! Those are 4" in height. Just FYI as you scout out the etsy number sellers. I may go find the girl I bought from and I can send ya the link if you need it!

love the steps!

For starters…you can get an AMEN. God doesn't show up a day late. He is more concerned about timing than TIME. His timing is perfect. Your child isn't ready yet and so the wait on the list is until the child He has chosen for your family is ready.

And…I think I may just need those numbers. I LOVE THEM. Cute !!!

Kimberly - December 7, 2009 - 3:37 pm

AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you ready your e-mail??? I can't wait to hear what beautiful words pour forth….we could just use the above post!!!! LOVE it and LOVE the numbers!!!!

Jenny - December 7, 2009 - 5:36 pm

Oh man… you make me want stairs now!! those numbers are just the CUTEST things ever!

Ariel + Barbie + Rudolf = Laney Young turns 4 (plus a bonus yummy recipe!)

Four days before the party while picking up a cookie cake at the Publix bakery for her preschool party she spotted THE Barbie cake…you know the one;). She did not […]

You are such a crafty mom. You better still be blogging in a few years when I can use some mommy crafts 🙂

I love coming over to visit you on your blog…now if I can make it out to see you. Actually, I was out your way Saturday. I went to a wedding off of Canton Street. I wish I had some time to stop by. I thought of you while driving through the cute square.
I love your photos and your recipe looks yummy. I can't wait to try it!
Blessing to your precious family!

[…] Thank you sweet Gigi and Aunt Tami for coming to keep the rest of us company this week! Aunt Nisia won’t let me post when Richard is out of town on my blog…so I had to wait until family […]

The "Spectacular" in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular…

Last night, we celebrated Laney’s 4th birthday with her sweet little friends (pictures to follow later)…her gift from momma and daddy was two tickets to see the Rockettes Radio City Christmas Spectacular. It was an entertaining show to say the least… …but I’ll confess–after you’ve seen the girls kick once…for me–that’s plenty. Don’t get me […]

A sweet treat for the holidays…(+ our new numbers!)

I am an absolute sucker for sweets–especially at the holidays. I’m also married to Mr.Sensible/Mr.Organic/Mr.YouDon’tGetDessertUnlessYouFinishYourPlate. Did ya get that? But the holidays are a great excuse to indulge a bit, and it’s way more fun to let the kiddos help create the treats too! Tonight–being one of those nights that we just couldn’t resist somethings sweet […]
