My wonderful and talented husband is a Graphic Designer and he said that he would make a customized blog page for me. I was so excited because he does websites for a living and has done lots of websites for family etc but I have never gotten one. So I was very excited... And I got to choose what I wanted for the theme and colors and everything it was very exciting. So anyway I am making this post to direct you to my new address...
This current blog at blogger will not longer be updated. But you can come on over to my new address and see what is going on....

So we got up and decided to get out today. It's so beautiful a little windy and nippy but still nice. So we put a coat on Kyboo, Chicken said he did not need one and went out for a little walk. We were headed to beside the little lake behind the Mill where we live. There is tons of pecans on the ground we got some yesterday and decided to pick up some more. Aunt Bekah gave me a yummy recipe for candied pecans and I really want to try it out. I think I have enough pecans now. So we set out with our Easter Baskets I thought this would be the easiest way to pick them up and we got quite a few. So hopefully I will get to making some candied pecans this afternoon. =-)

I have not really felt like writing a post lately. I have just been so sad this week... The passing of Maddie Spohr has so touched me more then I thought it would. I have been reading up on her to short life and my heart just aches for her mom and dad, Mike and Heather Spohr. We had a great Easter service this past Sunday but at the end when we were singing all I could do was just cry and think of that poor family. Praying them that God would give them grace during this very difficult time and comfort and touch them somehow. I almost felt guilty last night as I was going to sleep knowing that my own little girl was safe and sound asleep in our room...she is only 2 days older then Maddie I think this is why this has touched me so much. Maddie reminds me so much of my Kyboo. I hold onto her even tighter and to my Chicken, Mason. I love them so much and thank God for them. Today is Maddie's funeral.. and I can't even begin to imagine how hard this will be for her parents. I am praying for them continually today. I keep trying to put myself in their place and how I might handle that and can't even bring myself to mentally go there. All I can do is pray that God will enfold them and hold them so close and tight and give them peace. I can't do anything else.....

I just happened to run across this from a Flylady Twitter.. And I have been so touched and saddened by this story. I think I have been so touched because one she was such a beautiful little girl who looked so full of life and two she is exactly 2 days younger then my Kyboo.... And I just cannot imagine the heartache and grief that this family must be going through. As I write this I am wiping tears away it's just so sad. I am so thankful for my healthy little girl.... and I love her so much... I could not imagine if anything happened to her. It is at times like that you have to concede that God has a bigger plan and we just don't understand it. My Thoughts and prayers are with this family.... I did not know them but non the less I am saddened by their grief and loss....
Check out their website below.. also please donate to the March of Dimes on behalf of Maddie Spohr.. There is a banner on their website to donate.

I have told myself that I would try and blog everyday well at least every week day.. I got up at a decent time this morning people who know me know I like to stay up late and sleep late. And sad to say I have trained my chickens to sleep late too LOL.. Which I know my husband must appreciate on the weekends. It lets us sleep later. But we are having my sister and her 7 kids over for lunch today... She home schools all her kids which is really nice because then we can have these afternoon lunch/ play date. I plan to make calzones today yum.... I make sourdough bread I got the recipe and starter from my mom. So I just use the bread dough and make my calzones stuff them with meat and yummy cheese cook and walah yummyiness wrapped in bread dough. So needless to say I need to get off the computer and get to work. Sigh so guess I will chat at you later.. I will try to post some pictures of my yummy calzones... =-)
