!00 Points and Class Program

Seth hit his 100 points for reading a few weeks ago and on the same day Dom had his end of the year program. They both were all smiles the whole time. Seth loves Pella the Panther and gave so many people hi-fives all the way down the hall. Dom actually sang and danced at his program. at one point, they said a short poem about making a snowball for a pet and taking it to bed with them In the morning it ran away but not before it wet the bed. The kids and parents all laughed. My cute little son pipped up and said, "Mom it melted" to make sure I didn't think he had slept in someones piddle. What a character! I love my boys.

"A little Piece of Heaven Right Here Where You Are..."

I have the sweetest aunt in the world. This woman is so unselfish and thoughtful. My Aunt Traci was given my Grandpa Lex's wedding ring from his second marriage in his will. He passed away this past January and it's still hard, we are all letting our pain go a little by little and day by day. She knows how much he means to us, the whole family. His ring had 9 diamonds placed in the center. She took the ring and made each one of us grand-daughters a matching ring with one of the diamonds placed in the center of a band that hugs the diamond. She then made a ring similar for herself with the 5 remaining stones. Aunt Traci gave the reincarnated rings to each us the other night. She felt we all could and should have a piece of Grandpa Lex with us everyday. My sister took a photo and I changed it into this black and white one and am going to give one to each sister. As she snapped the photo, this song called "Heaven (Little by Little)" started playing in my head. Now LeAnn, Jenifer, Bailey and myself all have a little piece of heaven right here where we are, everyday. Thank you Aunt Traci, I love you.

I'm a semi-finalist!

I entered my novel into a query contest. We had to pitch our novels in ONE sentence, the winners will then get a chance to get an agent to read and take on the book to be published. Well mine made it! Out of 300 entries mine is in the top 50. It's number 7 if you want to take a look it's posted on the site. Go to the blog link then to the post about the semi-finalists and let me know what you think. Now I'm waiting on pins and needles for them to post the top 3 today. My fingers are crossed, I'm about ready to pass out, I don't know how much longer I can wait! I have to go do hair at 5 and I bet the winners will be posted while I'm at work. My Luck, o-well.



WAHOO! I got runner up, 2nd place! I get to send the agent a partial of my manuscript and we go from there.

I love these faces!

I was flipping through photos this morning and I came across these. I can honestly say that a mother truly sees a beautiful creation every time they look at their children. I am very blessed to have my children in my life. Each one of them has made me grow into a better person.

Okay, so I'm in need of a sitter to come to my house for two days a week starting in June and going until the first week of August. Anyone up for making some money? It will be Monday and Wednesday's 9am-4pm. Pretty easy job, just make sure the kids aren't killing each other, safe, and don't run away. I will only be two blocks away. Call me if you are interested or know of anyone who might be.
