Happy Halloween!

Chase has not been trick or treating since our last Halloween in Wake Forest, I told her then, that once she turned 13 that was the end! It was sad to see that fun part of Halloween be over, but I just think that teenagers shouldn't be out trick or treating...that's just me! Anyway, I never really thought about the fact that Chase could still dress up for Fall Festivals or a friend's party (a teenager's life is always so busy) So anyway last year at our Fall Festival, Chase ran the face painting booth and dressed as a cheerleader!

This year we had a wonderful Fall Festival, I will blog about that as soon as I bum some pictures off some people from church (I left my memory card in the computer at home) Anyway, our Fall Festival was a huge success and I will give you all the details about that as soon as I get pictures!! Chase was unable to go because she had her final band competition of the season (Newnan High placed 3rd for overall band and Colorguard placed 1st! Way to go Chase!!)

However, Chase was able to attend the Fall Festival at the First Baptist Church in Newnan tonight with her friend Jewel, they both went dressed as Nerds!! I think this is one of Chase's best costumes!! She was hilarious!! Is it bad that we had everything already here at our house that she needed to dress as a nerd??

It's amazing how she can still look so pretty and so nerdy at the same time! :)

This one is my favorite!! YIKES!! She is really Nerdy!! :)

We hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween!!

Jacob ~ Growing Up So Fast!

A week or so ago, I wrote a post about my husband, about how much I love and respect him, I hope that I show him everyday that I respect and love him, but I also wanted to honor him, to let our children and grandchildren know how much he means to me and to our entire family! I had planned on blogging about each child and grandchild in birth order! Then Hester sent me a picture over text yesterday and I just had to blog about this! So I'm sorry Brian...Jacob's blog is next!! LOL! :)

Jacob is Nathan and Hester's oldest child and our grandson, Jacob just turned 4 in March! He reminds me of his dad so much at that age, Jacob has the kindest heart, he loves his sisters and he is such a good big brother! Jacob is so smart, he just started going to preschool 3 days a week this fall and I think he's about ready for 5th grade! Of course that is more to due with his mom than the preschool. Hester is a great mom...Jacob is very inquisitive and Hester patiently answers all his questions and he soaks it all in, his new passion right now are the US Presidents! Jacob knows all 44 of them and can give you facts on almost all of them! He can tell you that Bill Clinton is from Arkansas, that George Bush, and George W. Bush are from Texas, He knows which Presidents were assassinated and who assassinated them...Funny side note he got a splinter the other day and Hester told him she needed to get it out so it wouldn't get infected and he said "If it gets infected will I die like President Garfield" Yes, my 4 year old grandson knows that although President Garfield was shot, it was not the shot that killed him, but that he developed an infection and died from the infection! I love to hear Jacob give me facts about the Presidents, and he will quickly tell you that Abraham Lincoln is his favorite!!

As I mentioned at the beginning Hester sent me a picture via text last night, Jacob was writing his name all by himself and not just his first name, but first and last!! I was so impressed...I just had to share about Jacob today!!

Jacob, I hope one day you will be looking at Mimi's blog and see this post especially for you and that you will know how proud I am of you, not just because you can write your name at 4 or because of your knowledge of the Presidents (although I am very proud of those things), but I want you to know that I am proud of you for who you are, I love to see you hold and kiss on Elyn, and though sometimes Kinley takes your toys or bothers your things I love how you love her and you won't let Granddaddy take her home!! :) I love watching you play baseball like your daddy and I love to see you playing Batman or one of your other super heroes, of course to me you are my super hero!! You have such a compassionate, caring heart and Mimi knows you are going to do great things!
My prayer for you is that you love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind and that you grow in wisdom and knowledge and you grow to love and serve Him! I love you Jacob with all my heart and I count it a privilege to be your Mimi!!

Research Study

I think most people that know me know that I have Rosacea...Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial redness. It typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Unless it affects the eyes, it is usually a harmless cosmetic condition. Treatment, if wanted, usually involves topical medications to reduce inflammation. I have had this condition for about 15 years now, I saw a dermatologist for it and tried several different treatments, but nothing ever seemed to really help, so I have just left it somewhat untreated...I clean my face, and use make-up for more sensitive skin and things like that, but I haven't used prescription medication for my Rosacea in years!

Then last week Tommy happened to find an ad in the Coweta Shopper, a small local paper, advertising a clinical research study for Rosacea, particularily the redness, so I called and got an appointment and I was so excited to find out that I was accepted into the study because not only do I get my Rosacea treated for the next 10 to 12 weeks, but they also pay me for my time...I do have to spend 3 days every 2 weeks at the office for 12 to 14 hours, but it is so worth it, I went this past Thursday for my first 14hr visit and I felt like I was having a spa day...they fed us breakfast, lunch and dinner, they provided snacks, they had movies, and games, and puzzles! And the absolute best part is one of the RN's is also a massage therapist, and she gave us foot, and hand massages, and I took a nice nap after that!! I told Tommy I felt like I should have paid them!! I haven't had such a relaxing day with people waiting on me like that since Tommy and I went on our last cruise 11 years ago!! :)

I am very excited about this study, I am hoping that it helps my redness, and I am excited about getting to do something extra special with the compensation money!! I'll let you know what we decide to do!! :) Please pray that I don't have any adverse side effects and that I will be able to stay with the study until the end!!

Today is Husband Day!!

For those of you who have Facebook accounts...You know that alot of people will have their status set as "this week is Husband week, so if you have a husband that is always there for you...and so on" and then there is daughter week, and son week...actually now that I think about it I don't think I have ever seen a wife week!?! hmmmm!!

Anyway, I decided to take that same concept to my blog post! I won't do a whole week on just my husband, although I could! I will limit the post to just the day! So anyway I decided to start with Husband day!!

Tommy is my husband of almost 16 years! I love and respect Tommy more than any man I have ever known and I count it a privilege to be his wife! I know most of the people who read my blog know Tommy and you probably already know alot of what I am going to tell you about him, but this is more for Tommy than for you (Sorry)

Here are just a few reasons why I respect you:

  • I respect your love for the Lord

  • I respect that you are a Man after God's Own Heart

  • I respect that you love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and strength

  • I respect you for being the Spiritual leader in our home, giving our boys a wonderful example of a Christian husband, and father, and showing our daughter first hand, how a husband should love his wife!

  • I respect how you work every day to provide for our family, and I am so thankful for all that you do to provide a way for me to be a stay at home mom!

  • I respect your desire to protect me and our family

  • I respect you for your commitment to our family, I know the bills weigh on you at times, and I admire you for your commitment!

  • I respect your sense of humor, how you always make me laugh!

  • I respect that you are the same man when you stand behind the pulpit that you are at home!

  • I respect your love for Luthersville Baptist Church, and the people of the church

  • I respect your desire to see lost people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ

For all these reasons and so many more I honor you today, Tommy! I thank God for you, and I thank God that He sought fit to make me your wife! I love you with all my heart!

Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband. (Eph. 5:33 NASB)
