Teenage Princess in the House

13 years ago an amazing thing happened.

I had a beautiful girl.

Teenage Princess in the House

She had bright blue eyes.  Dimples.  A smile that would melt her Daddy’s heart.

If she was hungry, she would barely let us know.  She was such a content baby.  Which was so different than her constantly tree climbing brothers who were not afraid of anything and were super loud.

She was reserved.  Polite.  And a true Princess.

Still is.

She is funny, delightful and loves people.  People love her.  She will never lack friends because she is so real and kind to everyone she meets.

She likes green salsa on her eggs and makes mean scones.

She can crotchet, sing, dance and speak with an English accent on a moment’s notice.

She loves babies and begs to babysit.

She teaches young ones about Jesus.

She herself, loves Jesus.  And is constantly learning about Him.

She only asked for a Bible for her 13th birthday.

I love shopping with her.  She is simple with great fashion taste and easy to please.

Yep, I kind of like her.

I am glad I am her Mom.  God heard my prayers with this child.

After 2 rambunctious boys, He blessed me with such a peaceful girly girl.  (Plus, she really is a mini-me.  I love that we share the same desires.)  I also love that she is so good to her siblings.  They really have the neatest friendship which makes my heart rejoice.

I think I did over do the pink when she was young – because now she hates pink.  Go figure!  But that is okay, she will still wear it because she knows it goes good with her skin tone and she is a teenager and a princess.

Happy Birthday sweet Princess!

You are loved beyond words.  You bring us so much joy.

We are boring DIY people


We have been very boring people lately. Boring. Bored. Ha!  I just wanted to write those words (bore – see I can’t stop) to see how they felt. Some days, opposite days are in order. Like having breakfast for dinner. Or sleeping in clothes and going to work with your jammies on. By the way, have you have seen Pajama Jeans?  A friend of ours brought them over when they spent the night and I

Essentials for fighting the flu and a giveaway


We have had the flu. 3 out of 7 of us. This in any family requires some delicate training. Thankfully, my hubby has been in OJT – On the Job training before. He went to the store and stocked up with essentials for fighting this ugly virus. Powerade, Kleenexes, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen. He has been doing this for many years so he also knew I would not want to cook so he also planned a

Great Resource for Home Bible Studies


I love reading the Bible. Even more than reading it – I love when I find that little treasure that expands it to life.  Like the first time you go to the zoo and see how massive the elephants are or how the giraffes would be great at playing basketball if they had hands.  That is how I feel when I look up a word in its original text like Hebrew or Greek, a whole

Some areas I am on top of the game.  (Like baby, we have

Do It Yourself Projects


My hubby and I have been doing DIY projects for years. A few questions we often hear: “Where did you learn to do this?” “Aren’t you scared something is going to break?” “My husband would never be able to do what your husband does – he is so NOT handy.” I just laugh. If they only knew we learned most of everything we do out of plain force. In other words, if someone really needs

Lake Living


One of my most favorite things thus far while living on a lake are the views. Every day there is a new photo opportunity. A fresh chance to capture the still life with a new perspective. I don’t think it will ever get old.  (This Works for me!) From birds to more birds… These are the ones that have stayed through the winter and have fought the freezing temperatures. They make me smile – daily.
