Welcome To My Blog

Just a little about me.....I'm a stay at home mom of three children....17, 11, and 4. My Dear Husband works hard for our family as a truck driver. In my free time I love to scrapbook, sew, read, and most of all spend time with my family.

My hope with this blog is to share some of the things that I enjoy and through that I learn what you enjoy.

How Thankful I Am

I just wanted to make a post to let everyone know just how thankful I am. I am lucky enough to have a husband that works so hard for us. He goes out everyday and works for our family and never complains and never asks for anything in return. He is also my best friend...not many woman can say that....I'm one of the lucky few.

I'm thankful for the health of my family...we have been very lucky. As Thanksgiving gets closer I get more excited....what started as a small dinner has turned into a big family affair and I can't wait!!! We went from having 7 to having 20....it is going to be fun!!

And then the best part is the day after...Dean and I have our own traditions...we love Black Friday shopping....so we will be one of the crazy people out there shopping in the middle of the night....
