"Good Stuff x10"

My dear friend Jennifer posted a list about some good stuff going on in her life. It inspired me to do it too!! I agree with her... God is so good!

My Good Stuff x10... in no particular order:

1. The last Skinny Cow from my freezer.
2. Creative thoughts making their way to paper!
3. Cooler temps... coming soon!
4. Family Feuds... avoided.
5. Standing firm in oneself... always
6. The feeling of true friendship
7. Birthday parties
8. Capturing a special photo
9. Late night TV
10. Eating right and exercise

Thanks for the reminder Jennifer of how we need to list our good things too... no matter how big or how small!! This was really fun... now to all who are reading it... TAG... post your list on your Blog too!

It happened... it really did!!

Finally, after sooooo long!! I met my dear friend Kimberly's fiancee' Todd!! Can I tell you... in all honesty... she traded up!! He is a perfect match for her, he loves her unconditionally and he is a real man!! I already knew how deeply in love with him she is... sigh! What a couple. :) Here are a few photos I hijacked from Kimberly's blog!! Sorry Girly... I waited as long as I could for you to email me some and since we didn't really have time to take any while you both were here. I didn't have a choice! But... I am giving credit where credit it due.. right? LOL!!!

Aren't the just adorable? I think they are and I love them both!! We have a special friendship and a special bond. XOXO

Now... on to other news! Jack's 6th birthday is this Wednesday Sept. 10th... I can't believe how fast time is flying by!! He made me laugh the other day when he said "Mom, I am going to be old enough to show it on 2 hands now!" Wow... that really put it into perspective for me. He is just growing up so fast! He doesn't know it yet but he is getting a Wii for his birthday. He is going to faint! He asked for one last year but we weren't ready for that leap yet!! You know... the leap into the video game jungle!! LOL! Anyway, I don't think he has any idea that he will be getting it... I will have my camera in hand for this for sure!! Maybe even the video camera too! We are going to have a party for him on the 20th when some out of town family will be here. Check out this invitation I made for him!! He loved it!!

Ok... well, I think that's it for now. I'll have a few more photo's to share when they are processed. Have a GREAT week!

Jack lost another tooth!!

Oh my gosh... I am so happy!! It's finally out!! LOL... I don't know about you but when I was a kid I remember wanting to get my teeth out once they became loose! I'd wiggle, twist and turn them until they'd hurt too much or come out! Not my Jack... he wants nothing to do with pulling them out! He has had this top tooth just hanging there and finally on Sunday night while he was at his buddy Jack R.'s house it fell out at dinner! Here are a few photos of Jack & Jack the next morning at our house!! Aren't they just the cutest ever?? Jack R recently lost his tops... so what a pair they are now! Hehe... good times!!

These boys just crack me up! They are so funny... they will sit for pictures as long as I let them make some silly faces!! Well... that is fine by me!

It's Jack's 6th birthday in a few days. I am working on making his invitations. We are going to have a party here at the house with friends and maybe a bouncy house! We are still working on the details! It will be fun for Jack!

More soon.. I promise!
