PeeWee Herman Quotes

Y’all remember PeeWee’s Big Adventure? Yeah, well I’m not ashamed to admit that I loved it. Watched it over and over. And every time it got to the Large Marge part I covered my eyes. Because I know you are, but what am I?

My sister and her family recently bought a house, and she watched PeeWee and realized that she loves it. It’s amazing the difference the 10, 12, 14  years between my sisters and I are, sometimes I forget that we didn’t grow up watching the same things. Or that they were too little to remember the things that I watched on a loop at their ages a long time ago…

So because I owe her a housewarming present, I made her these. ;) I painted two clip boards and they look adorable. Now I just need to go grab a few things to round out the gift and get it delivered to her. :) And hug my little nephew Z of course.

“stained glass” hearts



I’m late to this here Valentine’s Day party. Actually We’ve had these up about a week, but I am only getting around to sharing them now. Why? Because I’m lazy. There are days it is too much work to have to pull photos from the camera, to the external hard drive, then copy and edit them. Plus the actual post… so yeah #lazy.

The kids were bored one day and I knew we only had glue, tissue paper, and construction paper. My main objective was to keep them busy for awhile and away from electronic devices.

So here ya go, if ya want to make these with your kids they are super simple, and hardly any mess. Unless y’all have kids who think glue is amazing fun (i’m looking at you Nephew C. lol) I’m already thinking ahead to other holidays and months where we just need a smidgen of decorations, I think they would be cute in different shapes., i.e St. Patty’s Day, Easter, May, 4th of July, etc…


  • construction paper
  • tissue paper that you have torn into varying sized pieces
  • glue
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • thread
  • foil or wax paper (as a work station)

Step 1:

Cut out your hearts(or whatever shapes you are going with)

We cut out two pieces together that way our hearts were the same size, then cut out the middle in the shape of a heart.
Step 2:

Grab your glue and your tissue paper pieces and let them go crazy.v_day2015craft_4





Step 3:

Glue the “front” of the heart on to help hide the edges. v_day2015craft_3

Step 4:

Let dry for several hours or overnight depending on the amount of glue your little people used. trim up the edges, punch a hole in the top and hang with thread.





Hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day! =)

Where I am today….

I hate silence. I get uncomfortable in complete silence. I need music or background noise. My ears feel weird when there isn’t sound. I’m not sure what this says about myself. It’s probably the reason I have trouble hearing God. Or that could be the anger I’ve been holding onto since this summer.



Isaiah 46:9  (NKJV)

 Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,



Psalm 19:14 (NKJV)

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.





Ephesians 2:4-5 (NKJV)

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,  even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),





Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV)

 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.




So where I am today is holding on to God’s grace by a string. Things seem to pile up around here quickly. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed. Sometimes I feel blessed. Sometimes I just want to scream. And cry. And curl into the fetal position and never move again so that the wounds can’t hurt. Sometimes I want to laugh because things can’t get more ridiculous than they are around here.

And sometimes I want to take a nap… today, mainly because Aly and I just scooped the driveway this morning, and there was a lot, and there is more on the way tonight. Yeehaw. No really I am excited. But my back is not. ;)

jan2015_4 P.S. all of these were taken right before the snow storm. It was dry around here after the beautiful weather we had, so this snow is a HUGE blessing!(Thanks Lord!)
