I am sitting here eating the last of the pecan (PEE-can) pie and wondering where to begin on telling about our Christmas. The day of Christmas is just magical, I mean…I just wish we could rewind and do it all over again. The kids loved waking up to a room full of gifts (who wouldn’t?!). I loved watching their faces. […]
We went to Augusta on December 19th-21st. It was a fun-filled weekend, as usual. On our way over to Augusta, Ruby said, “Mama, Sweetie (my mom) doesn’t have a lot of toys, but SHE HAS COUSINS!” When we go to Josh’s parents house, the kids play with tons and tons of toys, and they love every minute. When they […]
This morning we went to Wal-Mart to get some toys for some families that aren’t able to provide Christmas for their kids. Wal-Mart is always an adventure with three kids, but today was even more exciting. Ruby really seemed to help me pick out the right toys and in a timely fashion! Molly was a bit thrown off because […]
For anyone who reads this blog, please say a prayer for Garrett and Traci Grubbs and their entire family. Their baby boy, Gabe, was born prematurely on Thanksgiving Day and went to be with Jesus just yesterday morning. They are having services tomorrow…I would just ask that your pray for this precious, godly family. Thanks.
This pretty little ornament was given to Ruby last Christmas from Gran and PawPaw symbolizing her first year of dance class. Well, I put it on the tree and Ruby just loves it. She says, “Mom, seeing that ornament really makes me want to play with it.” I tell her that I am glad she likes her […]
Ruby and I have already had conversations about modesty and what it means and why it is important. In Barbie’s Christmas Carol movie, Barbie wears an inappropriate dress. My friend, Mary, prepared me for it before we watched the movie. I mean, you don’t see the cleavage, but there is a plummeting neck line with sheer material “covering” the skin that only your husband should see. So, anyway, Ruby now will say, “Mama, I like the bottom of her dress, but I don’t like the top.” Last night we were watching abc family movies…not sure what movie it was, something about Brain Freeze…the lady in a part had a dress on that pushed her ta-ta’s up and together, making quite a bit of cleavage. Ruby, on her own, said, “Mama, it is not nice that all of this right here (pointing to the non-existent breast area on herself) is peeking out.” or something like that….Then, she said something about how she sees a lot of people that do that. While I am sad that she has to see so many immodest folks, I am glad she recognizes that it is inappropriate. We have a long way to go with this, I am sure. It is so important though and will be worth our time and effort!
