Makes Me SMILE Week 33


Date Night with Little Man.

God’s will in the works.

Dinner with some great people.

MY Baptism!


Seeing my Sister!

Little Man’s sense of humor.

We were getting ready for school and he picked up a comb, put it over his eye and said, I’m a pirate!

Little Man’s is finally out of this Toddler Bed!



Makes me SMILE week 29


Little Man’s excitement for new toys, new to us toys.

Big Man’s Dad in town.

Compliments to the baker!

Little Man’s first time to roller skate and the fact that he thought he was awesome at it even though he was using a roller skate walker-helper thing-a-ma-jig.

(Okay, I know it might look like we, or I, am using the “thing-a-ma-jig” but I wasn’t, this was just a photo-op.)

Little Miss A in roller skates.

(What is up the carpet in these types of places?)

Child Dedication at Church that included our Little Man, never too late you know!

(Us with Pastor Jeff)

The start of VBS, we are running the games for approx. 300 kids all week.

(On a hot day you have to get your kids out and play Splish, Splish, Splash. Like Duck, Duck, Goose but with a cup of water) 

Amazing Story


I was looking thru my blogs and The Lettered Cottage was featuring another blog Goodtobecrazy.com  And then this women started telling her family’s story.  You can read it here.  So after reading and then seeing this Happy-Cry Video of  two kids making it home to a place they have never been  I had to share it with anyone and everyone.  I am going to try to embed the video but I have tried this before and had issues so if it doesn’t work you can see it here, It is called, Home At Last.

Makes me SMILE week 23


A nothing to do Friday night hanging with the family.

Little Man’s last Blastball game of the season.  (Not that the season is over, they played really well and got trophy’s.)

Spending the afternoon doing nothing with one of my Besties and the kids.

A light-hearted Church service with a real message.

The feeling of God’s presence and faith and the peace from it during a stressful time.

Seeing change.

Blastball Pizza Party.

People that take time out of their lives for others.

School Programs.  Little Man did so go and loved it.  The days of just standing there are over.
