The big 10

Happy 10 months my sweet Evan!

Evan is the most laid back, happy, snuggly baby!

He LOVES his big brother and wants to be just like him.

I can not belive how fast he is growing up!

Thank you Lord for this sweet little man!

Our little "Evan from Heaven"

Clean water

This is Caroline. Beautiful smile, right? She's smiling because she's drinking clean water for the first time. She used to walk three hours every day to fetch dirty water. But not anymore. Her village just got a well. Clean water will change everything for Caroline and her community. For every Caroline, there are millions more children hoping to smile like that. Almost a billion people on the planet don't have clean water right now. Who knows how many people you will impact. This is where it begins. Start a campaign, create a group, invite your friends. Give up your birthday, climb a mountain and run a marathon. And smile. Because what you do here changes lives.

I am donating from my jewelry shows and raising awareness! Please help me with a goal of $5000 by December 31st! This will help an entire community of 250 people have CLEAN WATER!

Trusting God the Way We Should

Trusting God the Way We Should | Gifted for Leadership | Women Called to Ministry

This article spoke to me so loudly today...I wanted to share!

Staying up until 11:39 tonight has been very beneficial because I saw the most amazing infomercial...


Can I just tell you that I NEED this! It is the answer to all of my organizational dysfunction!!

I am a woman of many "piles". Piles of bills to pay, magazines to read, things to do, coupons to use (maybe one day), newsletters to read. Premier stuff. Bible study stuff. Mom stuff. Wife stuff. Kids stuff.

Just two minutes ago I found the answer! THE WONDERFILE!

I almost called the number because you get two for $19.95 (plus S&H)!

I will wait and sleep on it, but I am already dreaming about what color to get...
Black? Red? or Plaid?

I wonder if it really is wonderful?

always be my baby

Tonight I put Evan to bed and when I walked out he was still playing in his crib. About 5 minutes later, I walked back in and he was STANDING, hanging onto the side of the crib.

Freaked me out! So of course I had to get Wes to lower his crib right away!
Where is my baby boy? Why do you have to grow up so fast, baby Evan!
This year has flown by! I can not believe Evan is almost 8 months old! He has 2 bottom teeth and four more peeking through the top. He army chase his big brother Caleb around the house. A few days ago he started pulling up on some "shorter" objects. His signature look is his mohawk. He has had it since birth, but now it's becoming more like a mini-fro...I love it!

He is a true joy and one of the SWEETEST babies you will ever meet.

So a few months ago, Wes got to visit the apple store in Augusta, GA and check out the new iPad. He was blown away with it! I would love to get him one for Father's day or birthday, etc...however it is way out of our budget.

Then I get an email today with the opportunity to earn one FREE through referrals.

Well I am pumped!

I use this awesome website, Any time I shop online, I go to ebates first and link to where I want to shop. Just for going through the ebates site, you get cash back! (I got my first check a month or so ago)!

This is where I need YOUR help. If I refer 50 people to sign up and shop through the site, I can win a free iPad!! I really want to win this for Wes b/c I know he would LOVE IT! I know 50 people is a lot, but I am up for the challenge. I have until July 31 to make this goal!

In order for me to get credit, please go through this link:

current obsessions

Caleb is such a fun and funny little guy. Here are some of his current obsessions:

batteries- he loves batteries, his favorite thing is to take them out of the remotes and "hide them"
stickers- peel and re stick ones are the best, hours of entertainment
pouring water from one object to another- he could play in sink or bath forever
lotions and hand sanitizer- he tries to snag these off my bathroom counter
chap stick- if you let him have some he will walk around reapplying over and over
milk- he loves me-yilk, he would drink it all day long
dancing- he loves to dance and wants you to dance with him (especially his daddy)

Best kept secret

This past Sunday, we went to a concert at our church given by the Gettys!

This incredibly anointed couple, Keith and Kristyn Getty are modern hymn writers. Going there I only knew 2 songs, "In Christ Alone" and "The Power of the Cross".

If I had only known what a powerful night this would have been, I would have invited everyone of you!!

These songs are so rich with scripture and point you to worship, love, commit, depend on, focus on and rejoice in our awesome Savior!

And her voice-- wow...a powerful sound out of a little woman with a beautiful Irish accent! Love it!

Here is a clip of one song they really does not do it justice-- please get both of the Getty's will bless your socks off!
