Plain to Pretty

I am participating in Show Us Your Life from Kelly's Korner. This week we are showcasing things we create. I embelish picture frames, clipboards, make cards, scrapbooks, and put together gift baskets. Below are some examples:

I know some of the pictures are small since I put them in a collage. If you are interested in seeing any close up, please email me at I can tell you prices too, if you are interested.

I love a clean house!! It feels so rewarding to have laundry done, everything dusted and vaccuumed. It feels so nice to just get to sit and relax with Lyllian. It was a nasty, rainy day and we stayed in our pj's as long as possible today and then got back in them as soon as possible tonight. No special pictures today, but this one is from church and oh so adorable...

A Little Blessing

Our Little Blessing, Thank you Lord!

Lyllian Grace

Family Photos

Yesterday after Lyllian's dedication, we decided to take some family photos since we were all together and that doesn't happen very often.

Here is our little branch of the family tree.
My side of the family:
Adam, Carolyn, Maw Maw, me, Tim, Pops, Lyllian, Grammie

Tim's side of the family:
Stanton, Taylor, Jonny, Jennifer, Mammy, Papaw, me, Craig, Tim, Kit, Paw Paw, McGuire, Molly, Mamaw, & Lyllian


Happy Fall Ya'll

Lyllian went to the pumpkin patch tonight and got her very 1st pumpkin. She was of course the cutest pumpkin in the patch!!!
And of course her bow just set off the whole outfit!!!
Fall Break is only 2 days and that is just not long enough to spend with my little pumpkin. I wish I could stay at home or atleast work from home. Maybe one day...

Just Ducky

Nothing really important in this post-just wanted to share this picture of the most beautiful baby in the world. She has on her adorable duck outfit, it even has a duck on the butt-awww!!

Thank you, Lord

Thank you, Lord for a perfect, precious baby girl. We are so thankful that You blessed us with Lyllian Grace. We are so undeserving of such a wonderful gift.

Today was Lyllian's Baby Dedication. We promise to raise her in a Christian home and be good examples of a Christian married couple. We promise to support her in the decision she makes to follow Christ and support her in wherever he leads her in life. It was such an honor to have Rob Mullins perform the dedication service today at Crossroads Baptist Church. Lyllian was such a good baby. She slept during the whole service until time for Baby Dedication. She was so happy to be in front of everybody and of course she was beautiful. Rob married Tim and I back in 2007, so it was a blessing for him to also do this.

Look how adorable she is in her bonnet and beautiful dress.
Here we all are with Bro. Rob

Mistletoe Merchants

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, well at Mistletoe Merchants it was anyway. I went Saturday and found a TON of great stuff I wanted for Lyllian. Like this dress below:

Except I put Chocolate Brown bows on the dress and her name is in Chocolate Brown too. I can't wait to take her to the pumpkin patch and get her picture made it in. I also found her an adorable Mudpie Christmas sleeper and of course some new bloomers. Oh, and we can't forget about bows!! I can't wait until next year, I will be armed with much more cash for purchases!!

All I need is my Maw Maw

So the other night while we were all at dinner, littl Lyl started getting fussy. So, we started passing her around so we could all eat, she didn't want to calm down for anyone. BUT as soon as Maw Maw held her she made herself comfortable on her shoulder and fell right asleep. Isn't she a precious sleeping angel?!?!
