I could really use some uplifting right now...I can't talk about why, at this point, but man would I love to get it off my chest.

Anyway...I thought, maybe by overloading my site with gobs of photos of my kids, I'll find that smile that was once so quick to grace my face. I know it's just needs a little more coaxing to come out!

Here we go:


  1. I love all of your pictures!!! I pray that smile finds its way back soon!!

  2. ((you)) So sorry you are having a hard time right now girl! Those kiddos sure brought a smile to my face..and I know they do your as well! Hang in there! Praying for u!

  3. Oh honey! I hope things start getting better soon. Let me know if you need anything! Great pictures!

  4. I am here to tell you I honestly hope everything gets better. I had that week last week and NEEDED to blog it but I couldn't and still can't and it is so hard. It is no doubt the absolute HARDEST thing I, we, have ever gone through, as an individual, as a parent, as a family. It is something no parent (or child) should ever have to go through. I pray for things to smooth over for you. Keep your head up! It will get better!

  5. I hope things get better for you. Just keep your head held high and keep looking up.

  6. Chin up Mama, you have the most PRECIOUS faces in your life. Praying for you and yours.

  7. I hope that worked...they certainly made me smile!
    Here's hoping things are looking up for you!

  8. Sorry to hear you are having a rough go at it -- I hope things get better and the pictures of your beautiful children made you smile =)

  9. You have the cutest kids! They have such sweet smiles, too! I hope that helped!

    I'm so sorry you are having a rough time right now. HUGS!

  10. Praying for you and hoping the dark cloud passes soon!

  11. I know you don't know me (obviously lol) but big hug to you. BIG blogging hug. I hope the "bummerness" passes soon!

  12. Your children are all so cute! I am so sorry that you are having a hard time right now! I may not know what is bothering you but I will say this keep your head up and take it one step at a time. You will get through this, because you are a strong woman! I hope things get better for you soon. You are in my prayers!

  13. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}to you! Praying it all works out. Those are some pretty fabulouso kids you have...

  14. My cousin warns me all the time not to sing, but maybe it's okay in the blogosphere since you really can't hear me! This is from Charlotte's Web: Chin up, chin up, everybody loves a happy face...Let a little sunshine in...dada dada da da, dada dada da da, up with your chinny-chin, chin up! Whew. I obviously don't remember all of the words, and that's probably just how I would have sung it, too! Nevertheless, you get the point, right? Great photos of all of your babes.

  15. Sending prayers and hugs your way... you are blessed with beautiful kids!!

  16. Sending good thoughts your way! You are blessed with some beautiful kiddos!

  17. That'll put a smile on anyone's face! Hope you are feeling better soon. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous kiddos with us!

  18. Well if those adorable little ones won't bring a smile to your face, I don't know what will. :-) I'm sorry you are having a rough time right now. I hope everything gets better for you soon.

  19. i tried to come up with something funny but could not. okay maybe one thing. today we took the kids to the aquarium and then the beach. we also made them listen to 6 of 9 hours of america, where it started. I heard my 10 year old say "what the hell" she heard it on this educational history dvd

  20. Thinking of you! And ditto to everyone else...your kids are precious!

  21. I could use some uplifting too, and gratuitous kid shots always do it for me, so thank you!

    Thinking of you lady, and praying...

  22. Well, those made ME smile! Hope you're smiling again...

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
