Happy Birthday Miss Bea!

Guess who has a birthday! Miss Bea you've been official hacked, for a very good cause!

"Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday Miss Bea, Happy Birthday to you!"

Miss Bea is 15 years old today! Yay!

Fifteen years ago the Lord blessed our family's lives with a sweet bundle full of joy. She was born wide eyed and full of fun. Each day she continues to make us smile and enriches our lives with her many talents. I'm so glad the Lord gave me a sweet sister like you!

I look forward to spending the day with you tomorrow and celebrating your special day! I'm sure it's going to be full of surprises, tasty food and all kinds of fun things!

So let's hear it for Miss Bea! Happy Birthday!

Lots of love from your sister,

~Miss Laurie

We have a button's my mama's button jar. I love our button jar....I always have. I figured now was a good time to post about buttons. ;)

This is our button jar. Isn't it pretty?

I like the sepia ones best. Which do you like?

Do you have a button jar? What kind of really cool buttons do you have? I've been thinking of starting my own...they seem to take awhile to collect.

Are we excited about St. Patrick's Day yet? Head on over to Miss Laurie's blog and look at all the fun things she has posted!

Blessings on your Sunday!

He fills my life with good things...

It's March! That said, in exactly 2 weeks there's a special day. Can you guess? I won't tell. You'll just have to wait. ;)

Once upon a time there was a girl. Excuse me, *young lady*. Who thought that her photography was awful.

Although many...people told her that her photography was oh, say, pretty good, she never thought (until now) that it was anything special. She always thought that her photographs were, well, yucky and horrible.

And even though she liked putting the photos in her scrapbook, she thought that even if somebody did sneak a peak at them, it wouldn't matter because they wouldn't like them. (This was because she didn't like them, you see.)

But then, one day, she found a little note tucked inside her scrapbook. I never got her picture of that so...I can't post it and I don't know what it said. But! I do have this:

And from then on, she learned to love every photograph she took because it was a gift. A gift that her Creator had given her, and she wanted to use her gift to give honor and glory to Him.

The end

And now, just for fun, here's a little photo shoot the young lady from the (above) story did with our cat Gertrude. Once Gertrude settled down in the sun, the photographer got some great pictures. ;)

Alright. Vote! I wanna know which picture (of Gertrude) you like best. =) There's a poll at the top on the side bar. If you want, you can leave a comment telling why you liked a particular picture. Thank you!!

Also, if I follow your blog and you have a blog button, it's probably on my sidebar. Check it out, see if yours is there, and if it's not leave a comment to let me know! =)

Blessings on your Sunday! =)

Do you ever have one of those days?

(photo of clip art from this book)

One of those days where your computer just doesn't want to listen to anything you tell it to do. It just wants to be stubborn. You know those days? I thought so. We all have them, right? Although this wasn't one of those days for me, I'm sure I'll have one sometime. This is for those of you who are having "one of those days".

Have a lovely night everyone! =)
