Good Morning! Hope you all slept well. Hope this day is wonderful to all who stop by my little blog. I started this Blog so long ago, I think in about 2 years this month it will be a whole decade??? Anyway, I have been picking up school supplies here and there. Kevin needs a 3 ring binder for school, so I got him a blue one. I would like to figure out how to put a picture of Sonic the Hedgehog on it...yes, he is still crazy about Sonic. I also need to get him a haircut before school..I let him go haircut free for summer...but now it is time. School starts August 4th. I am so excited for Fall to start. My daughter is really getting into beauty things...she likes to get her hair done, she likes her eyebrows perfectly done..etc..she isn't into makeup too much, but she does like a lot of other things...Clothes, loves clothes. I was really happy when we went clothes shopping, she wanted more dresses than anything else :) We have had a nice summer..... Also, I turn 44 Thursday, July 24th...44??? 44!!! One more thing, my Tony is moving back home!! He said Home is where the family is, not where he thought he would be happy. He wants to be back around his Mama :) My heart is full! Oh, did I mention, Alexis got braces~~~Fun Times...LOL. BE HAPPY!
School will be starting up very soon. I get that worrisome feeling in my stomach thinking about my son and his peanut allergy. Oh, how I hope they find a cure soon. I got his new set of Epi~Pens, which helps me breath just a little bit easier. Those Epi~pens go with us everywhere, where ever he is, his Epi~pen is right there. This is our "normal" . This is his "normal". Every label is always read, every time. Everything is researched. Our home is his safe place.....he can relax and not worry about nuts.... I read labels once, twice sometimes three times or more. Just talking with someone about this can bring tears to my eyes because it can be quite scary. This is our "normal". This is his "normal". I don't let him see me cry, I don't let him see the worrisome l feel every time a new food is tried. I get scared, I pray, I pray a lot! I love my son so much! I love all my children so very much. I am thankful to God he gave me such awesome kids! We are learning together my son and I, because this is our "normal".
Can you believe it? Time is just flying by so fast. I was able to take her shopping to the mall for new clothes and I was so happy, that she wanted more dresses than anything else...LOL. She went through a jeans only phase...so now she wanted some "Girly" clothes.
Kevin painted this in school. I just love it. It is just so happy :) I framed it and put it in the Great room for everyone to see. I did have it hanging in my "office"...but I was the only one who could see it...so I moved it to a more appropriate spot.
I can not remember if I shared this on my blog or not. For Mother's Day, my husband got me the Little House complete season set!! SUPER AWESOME GIFT...LOL. Oh, how I love the Little House :)
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so I watch the Little House in the kitchen. I have a computer in there so I am able to watch my Little House, and I really love to watch Vlogs from other SAHM's on YouTube too.
Our yard is coming along! I just found out the plants all along the border of our home on one side are Canna Lillies...oh, how pretty it will be when they bloom. I just planted Elephant Ears, too...oh, how I adore these plants...LOL.
My name is Julieann, and I am a SAHM. I am married to the sweetest and kindest man--and he is very handsome too. I have four wonderful children. I enjoy being a wife and mother and taking care of my family--there is nothing more satisfying to me then what I am already doing. God is so very Good!
God bless my little kitchen I love its every nook And bless me as I do my work Wash pots and pans and cook. And may the meals that I prepare Be seasoned from above With Thy great blessing and Thy grace But most of all Thy love. As we partake our earthly food The table before us spread We'll not forget to thank Thee, Lord Who gives us daily bread. So bless my little kitchen, Lord And those who enter in May they find naught but joy and peace And happiness therein.
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day, With little time to stop and pray, For life's been anything but calm, Since you called on me to be a mom. Running errands, matching socks, Building dreams with building blocks. Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes, And other stuff that children lose. Fitting lids on bottled bugs, Wiping tears and giving hugs. A stack of last week's mail to read, So where's the quiet time I need? Yet when I steal a minute Lord, Just at the sink or ironing board, To ask the blessings of your grace, I see them in my small one's face, That you have blessed me all the while, As I stop to kiss that precious smile.
