Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Evelyn’s 12th Birthday

Evelyn's' birthday was quite a few weeks ago, but it's never too late to post about it, I hope!
I hardly took any photos...yeah I need to work on that! But I do have memories! J

For her birthday we went shopping, had lunch, got special drinks, and that's as far as my memory will take me.

We got some Starbucks and headed over to Target (such a perfect girly thing to do, right?)  (She got a really cute outfit; a dress and boots)
Then we went to our favorite place of all...Panda Express. Yeah, it's the go to place when dad isn't around.

We joked as we were trying to figure out what to do after lunch, that we would have to go to the salon for Evelyn. She is our salon (make-up) girl. That's her thing. No Frisbee golf, no soccer, no park days, instead…shopping, beauty, etc...Yeah, that's Evelyn.  Did I mention that with her birthday or Christmas money she bought a nail polish set with brushes and fake nails! :)  I told her she is gonna end up in beauty school for sure!

Happy Birthday Evelyn!
For her birthday party we had a few girls over for a sleep-over on Friday night.  Karaoke was the highlight of the night! The next morning we all went to see the new Cinderella movie which was so much fun and it was a really cute movie…I liked it!

There are only a few pictures of her and cupcakes and they aren't that great, but I hope you enjoy them and get the picture!
