Just plain ole precious!

I don't have many words for these, other than she was such a trooper at the ball field. I was so proud of her! She was happy the whole day long!


Well, it's that time of the year again! I started hearing about football ( of all divisions) about 3 weeks ago. My sister-in-law and I just LOVE this time of the year. It's when our husbands decide that there is nothing more important, than watching football almost everyday of the out goes project runway, food network and all other shows of interest. I can tell you that this year has been the most challenging year for sports. Ethan, Madi and Tiffany are all playing and it's been tough juggling practices and being at the field literally all day long. Even though its a lot of work, I do enjoy watching them play and do the things that I didn't get to do growing up. Here is Ethan running his little heart out! He plays tail back and can run that ball like Forest Gump! Him and the little boy in this picture almost got into a knock down drag out on the field. The little boy grabbed Ethan and wouldn't let go. I was NOT happy with that. Wheww...ya'll pray for me....that I don't become one of "those" moms!

Getting into position!
See that black thing in his mouth? That's what they call a mouth piece! I was not sure about all this football stuff when we started. A mouth piece for1st year flag football seems pretty serious. I guess they start them out young these days!

Inspiration for the future

Well I'm really excited and REALLY nervous about this particular blog. I've had a lot of really great feedback and encouragement from a lot of people and I do feel that this is the right time to go ahead and talk about it. If you don't know a whole lot about me, let me just briefly fill you in on one particular subject. I have a pretty long line of creative folks in my family, and when I say creative I mean crafty. My grandmother can just about do it all, sew, paint, make flower arrangement's, make cute little diddly bobs, jewelry,bow making, porcelain dolls.....etc. My aunt used to paint and was very good at it and has recently picked up photography for fun, my uncle can whip out some mean cabinets in the carpentry world and my mom, she dabbled in decorating the house and making seasonal things. With all that being said, I guess that is were I get most of my creativeness at. I believe this "craftiness" is just something God gave me and is part of what makes me unique. I am all about learning something esp when it comes to using my hands. SOOOO with all that being said, I believe that I'm going to try to open my own Children's Boutique in the future. :) I'm so thrilled about it! Do you ever feel like there is just something out there that you are supposed to do, but just can't figure out what it is, or your "fit". WELLL I do believe this is it for me. Please pray for me and my family, that this is what the Lord would have for me. I do believe that this will be a way to touch and reach out to people and I want to give the Lord all the glory for it. Encouragement always help, so if you have a comment or a suggestion, please feel FREE to share! I will start to post things little by little on my blog to give you an idea on what I want to put in my store. At this moment, I am making pillow case dresses with matching bows, so if you want one, let me know and I can show you what I've already made. Christmas is just around the corner!
Thanks ya'll so much for your time, love and support!

When dad's in charge........

OHHHHHHHH K......... Have you ever wondered what happens while your ( aka you momma's) not home and dad is in "charge"? Well, Chloe Grace and I had laid down to take a nap on this particular day....and this is what I found on my camera about 3 days later! I'm not sure what this was all about, I guess they are trying new moves for some fashion couture magazine or something!

At least my house was clean!

As I passed each picture, each one became more suprising and just plain odd!! I finally asked who took the pictures, Madi said...."Oh daddy did" ........SOOOOOO ......I asked Timmy what in the WORLD were ya'll doing? He replied " The kids put on a "fashion show" for me" Nikki, where is that big eyed "smiley" face when you need it? LOL

Ethan is so smooth....I think he thinks he is too smooth for his own britches!

Tiffany likes to strut her tattoo on her arm that will not go away because she REFUSES to wash it off. Timmy finally had to tell her to wash the ugly thing off. I just won't even go there!

I must say....Madi expresses her fashion in this form on a daily basis....and yes...I mean to school and anywhere else that she tries to embarrass me I think!

This is the "ghetto" hoodlum pic. OMG This is too much for me!


I'm so upset with myself! I want to blog everyday, but these days it almost seems impossible. We have had ball practice almost everyday of the week, and then staying at the ball field on Saturday's for about 7 hours straight! I know.....what have I got myself into right?! I'm going to do my best to do at LEAST one entry a night. I hope ya'll are having a great week. God Bless!

Here's a lil something to make you smile!
