A Break, again.....

I am going to take a blogging break for a few days, at least. I am just so tired right now and I have so many things going through my mind that I need to think through. I want to spend more time in the mornings focusing on my duties as a wife and mother instead of being on the computer and when I wait until the evenings to blog, I miss valuable family time. So, I am going to take a break and see if I can figure out some sort of schedule that will work for my growing family. I may not write every day or even twice a week, I don't know yet. I just need some quiet reflective time. I am sure that I will be back sometime this week to post and let everyone know how it's all going. Stay tuned and thanks so much for caring.

In other news, we had a great family day, Saturday. Charlie took us to KFC, and we ate the chicken and the biscuits that I have been craving. Their biscuits are the best, hands down. We also went to Charlie's parents and stayed a few hours and Claire opened more presents. She is so happy with everything she got! Thanks, Aunt Cheryl, Uncle Greg and kids for the Care Bear Big Ball and the Vegetable Head Set, she loves both of them so much! And, MeMe and Papaw, thank you for the beautiful dresses for Claire and Lily and the really pretty nightgown that she wears around the house all of the time! I had a great time visiting with Mom and Dad and Clayton and Jordan who came over and played with Claire and Lily for a little bit. I really enjoyed my visit with Mom, it was really nice to talk to her.

Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes for Claire, she got her present in the mail from Uncle Paul and Aunt Crystal and the kids and she just loves the pretty dress and the Easter window clings, we've already put them up! She also loves the stick horse from Uncle George, Aunt Tammy and kids. She is riding it everywhere! :o) And thanks so much to MeMe and Papaw and Uncle Dan and Aunt Brenda for the adorable cowgirl outfit and boots (which we pitched in for, too)! She looks so cute, I am going to have to post a picture, maybe I can get some today and get them up on here later this week.

Well, I have to go and get something productive done. Charlie is working on the house and getting it ready for this new little one. We are adding on another bathroom and changing the bedrooms around and he finished my utility room yesterday, so I am excited about that! Pictures as soon as I paint, I promise.

Have a great week, everyone and thank you for all of your wonderful encouragement and prayers. Please pray for Denise as she is sufffering many health problems with her diabetes right now. She has become a very special bloggy friend. :o)

Love, Julie

I love you my sweet, sweet friend. Thanks so much for your dear prayers, they mean so much to me. You take gentle care of yourself, and that gift from God that you are carrying. Your family is always in my prayers, blessings to all of you.
