I am in such despair!
I don't know where it could have gone, or how I lost track of it!
I am usually so careful with these types of things...

I lost my $3 Register Reward from Walgreen's!!!

2 Years and it's not any easier...

A picture of my Granny and Papa.
I can't believe it's been 2 years since Papa's death and almost one year since Granny died. For Papa,it was sudden, a very unforgettable time for our family. I can still hear his laugh when something really funny happens, and I often catch a whiff of his scent, a mixture of cough drops and Skoal.
It seems like that was a turning point for our family. Everything is described as before or after Papa's death. We still think of him daily as there are many items around the house that he made with his own hands.
Sadly, we lose sight of the direction of our lives or what the point of it all is. I was reminded of this recently with the death of another dear and funny man just yesterday.
We should live each day to the Glory of the Lord and not allow our pride and arrogance keep us from making sour relationships better. Too often we let our selfishness dictate our lives and relationships with others, instead it should be Christ who lives in us directing and guiding our attitudes and actions.
My prayer right now is just that, for my attitudes and actions to be Christ-like. I miss my Papa, but am thankful and looking forward to the day I see his smile again.

More Snow!!

Well, as promised, here are some pics of us just playing and loving the snow. It was so much fun and I think the most fun I've had in a really long time. I am so glad we were able to have this experience as a family, because we will share these memories forever!

Snow in Rockwall.... again!!!

So, we haven't had this much snow in the Dallas area... ever!!! We hit a record tonight and it is absolutely beautiful.

I love the smooth blankets of snow and the way the trees look topped with pure white.

I love the chill in the air and how we have to bundle up to our eyes to keep warm.

I love the look on my little girl's face when she is holding a big snowball in her hands and the excitement when she actually throws it.

We had 6 inches of snow in less than 24 hours!

It has been steadily snowing for almost a day and we might get more. Stay tuned for more pictures of playing in the snow. We will have fun tomorrow!!!
