Hello... Who's still out there?

Hello, My Friends!  Seems I am always apologizing for my absence... Another tough year but I'm still pushing forward.

I really hope I've not lost you all but, I would deserve it for staying gone so long. I will be back and posting again  within a day or so. I'll try to catch you up on a few things.

I've got more book reviews for you. I've even got a few to giveaway, if you're interested.

And, photos!!! All our little ones are growing up so fast it's just unbelievable.

Of course, my Son will always be a topic. He's doing great, handsome as ever AND.... well, you'll just have to wait for the rest. LOL!

Okay! Love you guys and I'll be back soon!

Help Emily Fight Against Cancer

Some of you may know Shannon from Coupon Mommy of 3. This precious little girl is Shannon's 3 year old daughter Emily, who took ill on December 18, 2010. Symptomatically she looked like she had a bad stomach flu but several tests down the line the family received the shattering news that Emily has Stage IV cancer.

Read more about her story, with updates on the Caring Bridge Site Page created just for Emily by Shannon.

Please lift up this family in your prayers.

We believe the family will also need all the financial support they can get. So to help out, Shannon's friends Karen from Mommy Times and Nancy from Arizona Mama have helped set up this ChipIn account for Emily. 

(ChipIn is a Web-based service that simplifies the process of collecting money from groups of people. They make the process quick, easy, and secure, and provide organizers with numerous ways to get the word out about their ChipIn event.)

The last thing this family should worry about at this time is finances and I honestly believe if all my readers could chip in with a little we can help this family.

(No contribution is too little. Every dollar counts at a time like this)

You can click on the "ChipIn" button below to have your contribution pooled in out of your paypal account.

Please, take the time to share this information with others. Repost, e-mail, retweet.... This is a very troubling and heartbreaking time for this family. Their choices should not be made harder based on their ability to pay.

Breezes Resort and Spa - Nassau, Bahamas

I know! I've been really missing for a while. I'm still around, just dealing with Doctors and lots of tests. I wanted to stop by and at least give you all a peek at mine and Ollie's trip to the Bahamas! Yep, you read that right! I won a contest on twitter that allowed us to spend 6 days and 5 nights at the beautiful Super Club Breezes in Nassau, Bahamas. We had a fabulous time! I will share more pictures and tell you a bit more about it a little later.

Isabelle's Fun Day in the Pool

For those of you who stop by from time to time, you know I just love my Great Nieces. Well, I love all my family but the babies are just too cute! I love to share my pictures of them so here's the latest of my Great Niece, Isabelle, in her pool. I got this cute pool for her for her 1st Birthday last year. We've been having beautiful, sunny days with temps in the low to mid 80's, just perfect for her to get out and play.

Enjoy! Leave a comment, if you'd like.

Awww.... cooling off!

Finally got up the nerve to try the slide. She LOVES it!

Don't ask me! Ha!Ha! This child is the Queen of Faces!

Who doesn't love a little one all bundled up in a cute little towel?!

Saddest Post

I don't even want to say this because it hurts each time I do. Cody and Heather lost the baby. Please pray for them and pray that Heather will not have further complications from this.

Thanks for being there for us.

First Look at Baby Ellis!

That's our sweet little baby! Turns out that Mommie is only about 6 weeks along. She woke up to a little spotting yesterday and had to go to the doctor. They checked her over really good and said everything is fine. They did a vaginal ultrasound and got us this great picture of Baby Ellis and a more accurate idea of how far along she is. Our new due date is August 11th! What a difference that ultrasound made. I was thinking about how far away June is, now I have to wait even longer to meet my precious Baby Ellis.

Can't wait for you to get here, Baby Ellis!

I'm going to be a GRANDMA!

It's true! I am going to be a Grandma. I found out on December 2nd. My son, Cody, and his girlfriend, Heather, are an estimated 7 weeks pregnant. Her due date, right now, is June 22nd.

They are both really excited and so am I. I wasn't in a rush to be Grandma, but it's on it's way and I couldn't be more tickled.

Of course, I will keep you posted as we go along!

Another e-mail I received that I want to pass on to you.........



A Birth Certificate shows that we were born;
A Death Certificate shows that we died;
Pictures show that we lived!

Have a seat . Relax . . .
And read slowly.
I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends do change.


I Believe....

That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.


I Believe....

That true friendship continues to grow, even
over the longest distance. (Same goes for true love.)

I Believe...

That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.


I Believe.....

That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.


I Believe...

That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. I
t may be the last time you see them.


I Believe....

That you can keep going long after you think you can't.


I Believe....

That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.


I Believe...

That either you control your attitude or it controls you.


I Believe....

That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.


I Believe.....

That money is a lousy way of keeping score..


I Believe....

That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and still have the best time


I Believe....

That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up


I Believe...

That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry,  
But that never gives me the right to be cruel..


I Believe....

That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them and less to do with  how many birthdays you've celebrated.


I Believe....

That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.


I Believe...

That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief. And, you have to go on.


I Believe....

That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.


I Believe...

That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life Forever.


I Believe....

Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.


I Believe...

That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you, or care about you.
Be vigilant, and take care that your standards are never compromised by someone else's lack of them.


I Believe...

That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help them.
I Believe...
That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean that they don't love each other.

And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean that they do love each other.

I Believe...

That all those credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.You have to be one!


I Believe...

That the people you care about most in life are taken from you way too soon.


'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

Share A Little

Just a quick shout out to you. I promise I have regular posts coming. Been crazy and busy for me lately. I want to let you know that I now have 4 blogs. (Hmm... why am I so busy? heehee) The newest one, "Girls With Goodies" is one I share with my niece, Tabitha. It is a work in progress but will have:

* Recipes of all kinds: ours and some borrowed
* Uniques recipes that will teach you how to make products at home: body scrubs, cleaners, garden    products... you name it
* Guest bloggers
* Seasonal recipes and ideas
* Reviews and Giveaways
... and much more.

Currently, we have a remarkable recipe for Blackberry Cobbler. It is a very unique recipe passed on from Grandma Bonnie. She was such a fabulous woman and an unbelievable cook.

We also have a Giveaway. Yes, already. This is a giveaway to accumulate some followers so entry is very simple.

We are giving away this cookbook:
