Fashion Accesories A Must

Today's Show us Your Life tour fromKelly's Korner is Fashion Tips. Show Us Your Life with Kelly's KornerNow, I really don't think of myself as someone to give fashion tips, so I will just share my favorite things:

I LOVE crosses and other inspirational jewelry that is super cute, and shows my faith at the same time! And since I am the only girl in a house full of boys, I love to be girlie and pair up some cute chunky jewelry with ANYTHING I wear! :)

Another fashion love of mine is sunglasses! These are just a few!

I also LOVE purses-of all kinds, colors, and sizes...but we won't go there today! (I have them in my closet in a bin, and in a whole 'nother box under my bed-shhh) lol And ofcourse there is shoes! Ahhh...the shoes! Many of my friends know that I have big feet, and for a long time it was hard to find shoes to fit, that were in my budget and cute! But now, it seems like I can find them anywhere! Uh--Oh! Needless to say, my shoe collection keeps getting a little bit bigger a little bit at a time! Well, at least I know that my feet are done growing! ;)

We are a Boy Family!

These boys are so much boy it is sometimes overwhelming! Especially when you throw in their big kid all boy Daddy! And yes, they each have a dirt bike in our family now. Not me ofcourse-no way! I am not sure how it happened, but slowly and one sporty vehicle at a time it has happened! Now I am not against 4-wheelers, so if you know of anyone that just happens to want to pass one on, then let me know! Cause obviously from looking at all the gear they have, there is no money left for me. Ha ha! (*PS Do they come in pink?)

Anyway, we spent a very nice weather MLK day at Marshall Creek and the boys had a blast! It was Carson's first time on a dirt bike, and he did very well! He has absolutely no fear what-so-ever! (Ofcourse you would understand that if you know his father!) LOL And eventhough it had been a while for D, he picked it up again right away! Sometimes I am sad that there are no ballerinas or tiaras in our future, but watching these boys have such a good time it sure does make me feel good!

This should be the title of my blog!

Jason running behind Carson for all of about 5 minutes, and then he was gone!

One of many wrecks that day-Don't worry they were minor, and he was fine!

My Boys!

Thank You

Just wanted to say thanks to all of you who prayed for us this weekend, God is Lord of all, and is in the details! Everything should be worked out by tomorrow! Sorry to be so vague, but it is just a long, complicated story! It was truly awesome this weekend though to hand it all over to God, and He totally encompassed us with pure joy that could only come from Him!

Can you say Pray?

I have an unspoken prayer request, that I might not be able to share here, but please be in prayer for our family. We are all healthy, and nobody is hurt. But we definitely covet your prayers right now. God knows what's up! Thank you in advance my blogging friends!

Hot Beginning

Well, it is a new year, and we start and end those with a bang around here! The boys stayed the night with Nani, Mimi, and Umpa so that we could have a few friends over for an adult New Year's Eve. I talked to my mom around 10:30 this morning, and the boys were doing great! Well, about an hour later, I got a phone call that Dalton and my mom had collided while coming around a corner, and my mom was holding a cup of freshly made hot tea! Yep, catastrophe! The tea spilled all over Dalton, and he was burned pretty badly! He was screaming in the background and obviously in pain!

It didn't take us very long to make the 25 minute drive over there, and on the way we texted several of our friends and started the prayer chain. When we picked up D, we went straight to Care Now in Lake Worth. The minute they saw him, they sent us to Cook's Children's Hospital in downtown Ft Worth. They did slather him with some cream that made it feel better for our trip though.

This is where the prayer part kicks in...when we arrived at Care Now, Dalton was red on his entire right side down to his belly button with severe burns on his upper right chest, and red down most of the right side of his back! By the time (15 min later) we got to Cook's, it was half that size!!! You couldn't even tell where the lower part had been red at all!!!! Praise God!!!

While at Cook's, the Tylenol I had given Dalton when we picked him up must have really kicked in, because he was all happy and fine! The only bad part was when they had to clean the burned part and get the dead skin off. He did soooo good! I however was ready to scoop him up and run out the door! I felt so bad for him! The good news, is that it was just 1st and 2nd degree burns, nothing worse!

When we got done there, we made a quick trip home, and then lunch at Mooyah Burgers, and a trip to Academy for some new shoes for D (his old ones were falling apart-and we think they got left at Nani's house).

Please continue to pray for quick and painless healing, oh and for my Mom too-I know she feels really bad-although it was nobody's fault and accidents do happen!

Ok, so let's break down day 1 of 2010:
Visit to Care Now $50
