Bloggin from the road...

We've had a lovely time visiting family in Montana this week. A couple days left, and we'll be headed home. We've gotten to do lots of fun things. Yesterday, we went to Yellowstone Nat'l Park and saw lots of animals (pic's to come) and got to see Old Faithful Geyser.

It's beautiful here and the weather is to die for. Day time highs in the low 80's and evening's around 45-50ish.....I am not looking forward to returning to the hot Texas sun. The mountains are as beautiful as always, and there is still snow at the tops of many peaks.

Last Thurs. they rec'd 18 inches of snow so you can imagine the valley below is really getting some run-off. I missed blogging, so I hopped on my uncle's computer to catch up. I was having "withdrawals". Hope all is well with all my blog readers.

Live from Montana,

P.S. I have lots of pics to post when I return, so stay tuned.

Happy Father's Day Jason

I do believe I've lost my mind posting this picture in my swimsuit. But hey, you only go around once, right?Luke wanted us to take a picture of his new fishing pole. These pic's were taken today before we went for a Father's Day swim.
Happy Father's Day Jason. Luke and I are lucky to have you as the leader of our household. You are a blessing to us and we love you from the bottom of our heart. Hope you liked your gifts Luke picked out.
P.S. I'm feeling much better.

Feeling much better

Today I ventured out for the first time in like 2 weeks. I took Luke to the mall to ride the carousel and to just get out of the house. He had fun, rode the horse and got to get some jelly beans at the candy store (pushover, I know).

He did really well listening and following directions. Only one time did we have to use the paddle today and that was when he decided to throw his rice up in the air at the mexican restaurant at dinner tonight. Cleanup at table #4. I'm sure they hate to see us coming.

I am slowly but surely regaining energy and am about to be back to "normal" (whatever that is). I am excited about an upcoming trip and HAVE to have energy for that.

Later taters,

Miss Vicki is with Jesus

I hadn't updated lately, but my friend Vicki succumbed to injuries sustained in a car accident 2 wks. ago. She is in heaven with Jesus and her funeral is tomorrow. Please pray for her family and her husband Cecil, who she left behind.

Still on the mend....

Well the last weekend required another ER trip. I won't give you the gory details. I have a very severe bladder infection requiring lots of antibiotics and lots of pain pills. I've been laying low and letting Jason, Mom and Luke pamper me. I don't know what I'd do with out my sweet Hubby, Mom and son. Please keep praying for me. Thanks.

You know it's time....

To get the pest control people out when your son lays a chip down on the floor to "let the ant eat it". We've had these crazy little sugar ants invade the last week or so. It happens every year around this time. Don't worry we're not messy people (ask anyone, I have Mr. Anal Retentive Extraordinaire Clean Freak as a husband) we're pretty much "white glove worthy" any day of the week. But, somehow these little creatures still make it in. Pest control guy will be here at 12 noon to rid our house of these pesky little creatures. Until then, pray we don't get carried off in our sleep.

Luke informed me today that on Monday and Wednesdays he would like to go over to play with his friend Tanner. He was very explicit in his instructions, ONLY Monday and Wed. Funny huh!

Finally, I have a fun little poll AT THE VERY BOTTOM (scroll ALL the way down) that you can be a part of, if you wish.

I am feeling a bit better so thanks for those of you who've been lifting me up in prayer.

If you could please add one more thing to your prayer list. A friend (Vicki) from my old church was in a serious car accident last Wed. Her Explorer hydroplaned into a telephone pole. No airbag deployment since she was hit on the side. She was extricated from the vehicle and Careflited to trauma at a local hospital. She was near death upon arrival to the hospital. She's been clinging to life with the aid of a ventilator, swelling of the brain has occured as well as blood seepage. The Dr's. and family have made the decision to remove the ventilator and see if she can breathe on her own. If she continues breathing they will continue care, if she doesn't she will pass. It's an extremely fragile situation as her husband came upon the accident when his wife never showed up to their lunch date. The paramedics had already air-lifted her. I cannot imagine. I you could please pray for peace for their family and for Cecil, Vicki's husband as well. This could happen to any of us guys. The fragility of life is sometimes taken for granted....until you almost lose it.

Now go take my POLL.

Something new I have to offer...

I mentioned awhile back that I would be adding a new product to the Faith Creations pendant line. After classes in handstamping sterling silver (which is harder than it looks) and metal oxidation, I feel like I've got a pretty good grasp of the art of handstamped fine sterling silver. More products will soon follow. Call for price quotes. I can create custom orders with whatever wording you desire. They make great gifts. This one is going to my sister. It has my nieces name on it with a delicate freshwater pearl adorning the bottom. Hope you like what you see.
Designing for a Purpose,

Sick of being sick, so I'm rebuking it.


Off to take more pain pills....but before I go I have to share this cute little conversation I had with Luke today while running my one errand to the bank.

He said, "Mommy, where we going?"
I replied, "to the bank, let's just look out the windows while we drive and see all the beautiful things that Jesus created outside our windows".
He looks out the window and said, "Oh WOW, Jesus made a lot of pretty things out there but.....UH OH!"
I said, "What's wrong?" He said, "Jesus would be very sad".
"Why?" I replied.
He said, "Oh, mommy Jesus would be very sad that I can't see out these dirty windows". I laughed because he and Jason washed my car for me this weekend.

Oh the conversations with a 3 yr. old, wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.
