2011 Christmas Parade

We went to the Annual Christmas Parade and sat with our friends and enjoyed watching the parade with all of our many children.

I love my best friend. I may have failed her at times, I may aggravate and annoy her but she has always been a great friend to me. She is always there for me. I wish I could spend more time with her than what I do. She may not know it but she is my best friend and I just wanna say I love you Lacy!

I'll never get over how good lookin' my man is.

Man, don't they look like some freaky life sized baby dolls?  We had to borrow some more ornaments because we didn't have enough and didn't have the extra money to buy any. This was our Christmas Tree for 2011. It was mostly red and gold and decorated by our little family of four! Beauti…


I said that I had no idea that my life was about to CHANGE after Thanksgiving. My sister Alisha, who has always felt like the black sheep of our family, rarely attends our family dinners, but this Thanksgiving she did. Alisha had gotten into some trouble with the law, and was having a hard time paying for everything. She gave one last try with a man with whom I know she loved. They moved in with each other and their two boys but just could not work through their differences. She decided she would move in with my mother. She did something I did not see coming. She made a CHANGE. She read a book called "The Shack." This book made me view things differently about God. It did her too. After reading it, she said to me, "maybe God does love me too, even after everything that I have done. I know I've hurt people and their lives." I told her "he does."  It is one thing to say you've made a CHANGE,  but when people can see the CHANGE, you know something m…
