Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths. ~~Proverbs 3:5-6

Christmas memories...

This was her reaction to the Snuggie! Thanks Nanny!!

She loves her Aunt CC!

And the craziness ensued!

Can you say "HAPPY"!?!

Our yearly pic that is a must! (I almost look like the cream in the middle of an Oreo!)

Her own alarm clock! She was so excited!

She has wanted an eyemask for a long doesn't get any better than Hello Kitty.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

I decided that I wanted Abby to have all her "loveys" here at the same time, so I invited the grandparents and great grandmothers over for brunch. My mom had to work so we were minus 1 person.



Popaw & Nana


The Johnson group

The Wigley group

I took pictures of the food......but between photo sessions, we had to change batteries. SO, apparently we lost pics of that. The menu was:
  • Mini bacon cheddar frittatas
  • Sausage balls
  • Beef dip
  • Buffalo chicken dip
  • Grapes & cantaloupe
  • Cheesecake bites
  • Brownie bites
  • White chocolate dipped pretzel rods
  • Spiced pecans

Abby was sick (fever, icky nose) yesterday, so I was thankful that she felt "great" (to quote her) so that everyone could come and hang out and chat.

Before & After (minus the before!)

We re-did Abby's room - but I failed to take before pics. It was a purple-pink wall color with a really girly floral quilt. She wanted a "big girl" room, so here it is!

I found this hook/shelf thing @ Hobby Lobby for around $6! Love that place!!!

The zebra print ribbon that her letters are hanging from is another Hobby Lobby find.

Is my daughter (& her teacher!) a smart-alec?

Okay, so what you might not be able to make out (because apparently pencil doesn't scan very well) - is the fact that Abby wrote "I do not no" for her assignment. #1 - she knows the difference between know and no, but she was probably having a diva moment on this day. #2 - she is such a little twit! Sheesh - at least Mrs. Leonard has a sense of humor!

Chickamauga Lake.......

......has moved to actual downtown Chickamauga.

These were taken approximately 30 mins ago, the levels are actually higher now.
Our front and side yard

Neighbors yard

From our front porch looking at our neighbors "oceanfront property" (I didn't say that - he did)

Poor Roscoe and our backyard (no fear, he is about to be moved to my parents house)

Another view of our backyard

We're packing a few bags, and most likely going to stay with my parents for awhile. We live much closer to the creek (in a flood zone, as you can see) than they do, so we figure we're slighty safer at their house.

Ahhhh, football season is here....

Abby got to particpate in a cheer clinic over the past 2 weeks, and part of the deal was that they got to cheer before a high school game with the "big" cheerleaders. She LOVED it!

Look at that kick!!!

Some people tell me that she looks just like me in this pic.....whattaya think? lol

NatNat and Ab

My dad and Abby

My toothless wonder!

A big "Thanks"!

It's been a blue moon since I last posted, so I thought I would at least just say "thanks" to everyone who came to my 1st ever jewelry show today! (Destiny - I didn't mean to NOT invite you, but you are out of the loop cuz you aren't on facebook!) It means so much to me that you all took time out of your weekend to come and support me with my new business (whether it be moral support or financial - either way, I am SOOOOO grateful!)!!

I love you guys!!!!
