About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Fall Family Festival

The weather was perfect for St. Vincent’s Fall Family Festival.  The festival is a day that the church and school come together to strengthen the bonds that tie the two.  Aleck spent four hours jumping around in the bounce house.  Both kids went without naps.  It was a gamble, but neither of them got fussy and they had a blast the entire day.  Tom and I had a great time visiting with friends from church and parents of Aleck’s classmates.

Brooke and her sweet little smile.


Presley was having nothing to do with pictures.


Kathy and Dede enjoying the music.



Ella had fun dancing to the country music.


Dede and Gary lasted a few rounds of the egg toss before the egg cracked.



Aleck had fun at the duck pond game.  His favorite prize was his Dracula teeth.




I love the picture of Ella and Daddy with the church bell tower behind them.  Absolutely precious.



At the end of the day, Tom and I looked at each other and agreed that it was one of the best days.  We are so thankful to have a wonderful church home and a wonderful school fused together in one.  Thank you, Lord, for these blessings in our lives.

Great Pictures Brenda! I will be using some of these on my blog. Thank You for being such a great friend and taking pictures of me and my family. AJ does love those teeth and I agree with you the one of Tom and Ella is adorable and special.
