Precious life

We often think that our little ones are so fragile and our husband can conquer the world. So we go through life worried about the little ones, watching every step they take - "don't go in the road, don't touch that hot stove". In the mean time, these big strong men of ours get overlooked at times. Of course we do need to watch over and take care of these little guys, but I often have to remind myself to make sure all of the big guys needs are met also.

Anything can happen in life. In just a second our lives can come tumbling down around us. So savor every single second and make sure that the ones that we love know how much we love them. God has loaned us these little ones and has gifted us with these irreplaceable men in our lives. He's hand picked these guys for us no matter how mismatched we seem to be =).

If you've not heard this wonderful song, you just have to!! It's all about perspective. A guy that I went to school with (from the time I was little) was killed in a freak bobcat accident this week. I can't even imagine what his family is going through right now. This song has been on my mind a lot this week and it just makes you stop and think about how fragile and how precious this life is. Last day of my life - Phil Vassar

For those local and who also went to school with John- here's funeral info and where you can donate money to the family -

An incredible gift for yourself or someone you love..

They're called Thumbies. I've never seen anything quite like them. You use the fingerprint of someone you love or your babies footprint or handprint from the hospital. This company will create a charm with the prints that you provide them. I can't imagine a better heirloom to pass down from generation to generation. You can also use your pets noseprint or pawprint. You have to check these out!

Beautiful Miss Alison.....

I just can't believe that another baby planner has turned a year old. Where did the time go? Where did my babies go? Okay, maybe not MINE, but I sure do develope a great relationship with these little ones (and parents), so seeing these guys turn one is bittersweet. I know that I'll see them all again, it's just so surprising to see them grow up so quickly!

This little woman is so spunky! She has her own agenda and is a take charge kinda' kid. I just love her! She has so much spirit and it's been neat to see her turn into a little toddler. Her mom and I used to work together (for those that don't know I was a Kitchen Designer in my former life ;). So Anita, here's your sneak peek. I know that curiosity has been killing you! I've got a special challenge for you to get a free image - check your email! =)
