Our BAMA girl

I came across this picture of our dog, Bama, a few minutes ago and just had to share. Isn't she the cutest?

More cards for soldier's

Two more cards to send to Iraq. Urgh...I had the hardest time with the "Dale" Christmas card. Obviously I was doing something wrong because I could NOT figure out how to get the cricut to cut out the white parts. I had to improvise. That's the last time I'll do that! lol.

Another Card for Soldier's...

Here's one more. I thought it turned out very cute. The inside is blank.

Christmas Cards for Soldiers

I've been working on some Christmas cards for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. The ladies on the Cricut MB are trying to send 20,000 cards this month. These ladies are so talented...amazing...selfless to spend so much of their time making cards to send overseas. I'm very happy to be a small part of something so nice. Here are a few of the cards I have made so far...The inside says...Merry Christmas Darling...We're apart that's true...But I can dream and in my dreams, I'm Christmas-ing with you.

Well again!

Another update. I'm finally feeling back to normal again! WOO HOO!

The kids and I are doing just fine. John is well too. He called last night and it was so wonderful to talk to him. I think it was the sweetest conversation we have had since he's been away. He has a soldier coming back in (due to a death in the family) and I am waiting for her to call me and let me know what time she needs to be picked up from the airport.

We are finally getting some much needed rain here. It's been raining for three days straight and it is COLDER than a well-digger's butt I dread winter. I sure hope it isn't a very cold one this year. If so...I will just have to hope for some snow. Snow cream sounds really good about now.

Hope everyone is well...warm...and dry.

As y'all know, I've been really sick lately with kidney stones, cyst on my ovary, etc. Yesterday I had a procedure (minor surgery) done to go in and look at my female organs and remove the cyst. I am happy to say that I am feeling SO much better today. Yes, I am sore from the surgery but I am not hurting nearly as bad as I have been. Thank God!!!!! My parents are here too. I was so sick I had to have them come to help me. I was seriously wondering if I would ever feel half-way normal again. I am hoping and praying that this is the end of all that pain. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers...if y'all don't mind. Anyway, it is going to take a few days before I am up and running again. I'm resting. Just wanted to give a really quick update.
Hugs to all,
