all is well here in Dothan. Just anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa! Boy are we excited! We are staying home to see what all Santa brings and then spending the rest of the day @ Hoppie and Papa's house. New Years eve we are all (Hoppie, Papa, Tony, Becca, and Chip) going over to Jackson, MS to see Howard, Dana, and Laynie to spend a late Christmas with them. We are thrilled and will post some BEAUTIFUL family pics that we've recently had made soon! 'til then..........

wow! I can't believe Christmas is almost here! I hope that this find you having settled in after Thanksgiving and doing all you can to stay sane through CHristmas. Let us not forget one thing. The reason for this season is not found in gifts, food, music, or anything else we associate with it! The reason for the season is the birth of Jesus Christ who came to this earth to die for our sins so that we may be seen as clean before the Lord! We so often get hung up in finding the 'perfect' gift when sometimes the perfect gift is a little extra time spent with that person or even a sweet word of encouragement when things are tough. I hope that you all remember that as i am trying to remind myself of that daily!

Chip and us are doing really well! We ran into some Dextrose the other day and have blown up but we're starting to deflate (FINALLY). We re-introduced Soy and i THINK/HOPE that it is going to be soemthing we can, in fact, have. We will have to wait and see but so far, so good with it. Other than that we are just hunkering down through this crazy weather and trying to really lean on the lord during tough times. The mortgage industry is a tough place to be right now...... but we're leaning on God through it!

Miss you all and wising you all the happiest holiday season! xoxo

my new 'adventure'

So ive decided to actually make a blog for all of my announcements and cards that i've got and then to expand on it a little at a time and do this for a 'second job' type thing. The web address for my other blog is www.sweetimagery.blogspot.com. check it out and let me know if i can do anything for any of you! Birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, holiday cards, baby announcements, etc. I'd love to do it and i'm really excited about what this could be. It is one of my favorite things in the world to do so i hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy doing it! :-)

Christmas Cards

So ive decided to be creative and frugal this year and design and make Christmas cards for friends after a swift push from Tony and a few friends. If you would like to 'order' some, just let me know! of course, they are personalized and you can change the colors, sayings, scriptures, etc. to what you want. I'm asking $1 a card and if you order more than #20, i'm only going to charge 75 cents. no tax and they come with envelopes. let me know what all of you think! I will edit them and email them to you with your changes so you can see them before you order. No suprises!
