Jelly Beans & Milk

Yep, that's what I said....jelly beans and milk. I know it sounds gross together, but it really is good. Try it sometime! :) Oh well.

I haven't wrote one of these in awhile. So I thought I would...nothing outstanding is happening in my life right now. Which can be a good thing. At least it's nothing bad, right?

I have to admit, I've thought the world has gone a bit mad lately. I can't understand things like the VT shooting, the continued war, rising gas prices. It makes me wish for simpler times. Happier times...for everyone, not just the lucky few.

The kittens: Mia, Callie, Sparkles, and Butter(cup/nut) are growing so fast! They are soooo adorable. I don't know how we will be able to get rid of any of them. I just can't picture us having 5 cats though. Gracie is in love with Sparkles. That is like her cat now, so I guess if we keep any it will have to be that one.

Robby decided he wanted to have a yard we're having one Saturday. I like going to them, but I HATE having them. I dunno, I guess it's cause my mom always had so many when I was younger. Anyways, we've been cleaning out stuff, going thru it and deciding what stays and goes. I can't believe how many clothes Gracie had!! I'm keeping all her tiny baby clothes but from about 12 months and up are going....I've already priced like 10 plastic grocery bags full! I'm never buying her anything else! :) Seriously.

I bought a book the other day. What a Husband Wants From his Wife - Emotionally, Spiritually, & Physically. I've only read about 3 chapters. I mean Robby & I don't have any major problems, but I'm always looking to better I thought, why not? It's not quite what I expected...but as I said I'm only on Chapter 3. What I've got so far is that basically it tells you if you give yourself to God, that he will direct you're marriage the way it needs to be. I get that, it's the totally letting go of control I have a problem with....I like to have that feeling of control. It really makes you think though.

OK, well, I don't really have anything else to I'll say see ya for now!! Take care and hugs all around!

Here comes Peter Cottontail

First off ~ Happy Easter! I hope you all had a good one.

Today was such a good day. We went to mom and dad's and had Easter dinner out there. One thing kinda sucked though - my sister, Tori and her family weren't able to be there. (this is the 1st Easter we've spent without her) Poor little Ethan has the chicken pox! So we had to keep him and Gracie apart. Hopefully they will be gone sometime next week. It's really starting to bother him....

Gracie had a wonderful day! She got to spend all day with Granny and Grandpa...something she loves to do. AND the Easter bunny came to her house. She's finally at the age that she is starting to get a real kick out of all the holidays. The only thing this time was trying to explain what exactly Easter is all about. She is so young I didn't really know how year maybe? She got soooo much candy, and then Granny & Grandpa stuffed a bucket full of stuff. She didn't know what to do first!

I just don't know how to express how lucky I feel to have her. She can brighten my worst day. No matter what is going on, I have to make her happy....and then watching her makes me happy. If you have kids you know what I mean. If you don't, just wait and see.

Holidays always make me think of all the years passed and make me weepy. I can't help it. I miss what was. I remember when I was little and it was Easter morning after the bunny had come to see me, I'd always take my basket to Granny's house and show it all off. I know that seems so trivial but, oh my gosh, I'd love to be able to do that just one more time. I know we have to grow and things change. It's life, but these memories are so precious. I hope that all of you treasure each day as if it's your last. You never know what kind of impact it will have on someone. Years from now, our children will remember what we have done for them and wish for it once again....

Ok, I've rambled enough...I'm sure if you've gotten this far you're tired of I'll wish you all a good night and blessings til we talk again.
