I have not left the blogging world…I am even losing my commenters…Yikes

Truth is Amanda and Micah have bought a beautiful new house and asked me to be head decorator and furniture buyer.  It has been a pleasure to help make their new house a home but also a little stress. 

She is getting all new furniture so making sure everything flows has been keeping me awake at night. 

I will show you pictures in a few months when we get it all picture perfect.
If I have not been furniture shopping, I have had there little Jack.  He is not exactly a help in moving. 

Saturday we all went to the circus..Gray went with us and it was a fun day. This was him 2 minutes after we got in the car.

 Gray asleep


You can see Gray looking at Jack..sweet buddies!

Jack on horse

Woody is finally riding a horse…and it was too cute!!!

Just a little update on precious Brooklyn…she really needs prayer tonight. 
Her Dad just posted that she was struggling in her breathing and has been having seizures all day  She is still very critical and it has been three and half weeks since her cardiac arrest and series of strokes..It just breaks my heart.

The tree schedule is close to finished and just a few weeks until we get started.
I am heading to market and a quick little get away for five days later this week..really shopping for more stuff for Amanda and Micah’s house.

My sweet friend Paige is struggling…her husband did not get the report they were hoping for.  She has the most precious family..
Please remember Paige and (for me) leave her a little word of encouragement. 
For some good news…Jack had a stress test last week and did great…then he took a simulated driving test at the hospital (he wants to drive college teams again) and he passed with flying colors…

What that means I am not sure our family has settled on, but it has boosted his spirits knowing he is certainly able. 
Next Sunday will be the anniversary of his stroke…To each of you that has encouraged me and inquired about Jack through this year, a HUGE thanks. I will never forget your love.

We will be in Dallas just like the first weekend in Oct of last year…counting our blessings.
I have spent the last three days…with Jack (Woody) being here on the pretense os helping his Mom out.  It really is to help me out.  One post I am going to just share FUNNY Jack stories.
There is nothing like a little to make me feel a tad younger.  He has made me laugh until I cried.
I am proud to announce HE IS  FINALLY POTTY TRAINED and proud of it…

I need to know you are still out there..I am going to catch up on everyone's blogs while I am away…(in a hotel where there are no interruptions)

If anyone has a name to a great paint color in the gold/mustard/brown tones…please send it to me…I am looking for the perfect paint color for Amanda’s bedroom and living room.  There are only 1 million samples out there. 

And if you are watching the debates, I would love to hear your thoughts...

Dear, dear friend :o) Just wanted to let you know you have definitely not lost me :o) I am one of the ones that tries to squeeze some fun blog reading time where and when I can :o) I wasn't sure if I was even able to get a post up this week again!

Anywhoooo...have fun with your family and getting all what you have done on your lists! :o) Be sure to get some R&R in there too! haha

What wonderful, wonderful news to hear how your hubby is doing! & thank you for always sharing your heart & sharing those that are going through challenging times.

Blessings & Aloha!

Vicki said...

Wow! you have a lot going on this time of year. Can't wait to see the photos of your kids' house when you've finished decorating it.

I'm still here! Of course, when you're not posting, you're missed! But, it sounds like there's a lot of exciting and good stuff going on in your family. The new house is exciting!

So glad that Jack passed the stress test with flying colors.

Woody looks beyond happy riding the horse. I'm betting he is going to want one for Christmas!

I haven't been to the circus in years. Sounds like fun!

Theresa said...

You are NOT a bad blogger, just a busy blogger:) It is great to hear from you and know that you are doing something so fun and exciting! Decorating a new home is a wonderful way to spend your time and their money, hehe! Have a blessed day with that precious little one! BIG HUGS and thankful hearts!

Doris said...

A lot going on in your world! Littles keep the crazy from going over the top =)

Have a wonderful time away!

I have a shade of gold in my foyer, hallways, family room and one bedroom that I love-Benjamin Moore Ladyfinger. It is subtle but you see color...its warm and very livable. I have a red kitchen and lots of reds, navy, and gold throughout my house...this color works well.

I have watched the debates. I am mostly disappointed-I'd like to see them show a little bravery. I feel like most of the candidates are so careful in how they word things so as not to offend or be taken out of context that they sound weak and indecisive. Herman Cain seems forthright and I appreciate that...just don't know that he's got what it takes to be President. That's my .02 : )

whimzie said...

Your hands and heart are full, Teresa!

Can't wait to see the new house pics. I know it will be beautiful!!

Debby said...

Peanut butter......I think from Sherman Williams.....Behr maybe. Saw it and loved it.

Nezzy said...

Oh baby, I'm stuck to ya like glue. I so understand how you need to spend time in life. It's our callin'.

What fun your gonna have decoratin' and how bless your children are to have you. I had fun decoratin' my little MIL's Assisted Care 'apartment' late this summer. It is a new facility so I had a blank canvas. 'Worked very hard but both she and I were very pleased with the outcome.

My prayers are with both Paige and Brooklyn.

God bless and enjoy market!!!

I've never been here, so you can count me in your "added" column. And now I want to go to the circus!

Mammy said...

So glad you're back! I check in almost every day in hopes that you'll post new Christmas trends. I am SO READY for your holiday blog to begin. I just love your creativity!

Can't wait to see the new home.

Am remembering those you love in prayer.

sher said...

Would it be okay if I sent you an email? I am one of your most dedicated "lurkers". I wanted to share something with you but I'm just comfortable posting it here.

Paige's Petals said...

Thank you Teresa for your sweet encouragement here on your blog. I have been getting messages from your blogger buddies and I love every word they send. The cards were piled up waiting on me when I got home and gave me a smile each time I opened one. You are precious!

Lynn said...

I'm still here! I haven't posted much the last couple months as I am having a great time helping my only daughter with her wedding plans. This weekend is the DAY so we're excited and happy as can be!

So happy that Jack passed with flying colors!

Sound like you are very busy. I'm looking forward to tree season and your beautiful ideas for Christmas.

I want to know where you get all your energy from! I need some of it! I am so glad to hear that Jack's test went great! I can't wait to see how you decorated Amandas house.

Tanya said...

I'm here with you every day girlfriend....just being absorbed in reading your posts and forgeting to leave comments.
Looking forward to your "home decorating" tips! YIPPEE....know it will be fabulous!
Can't believe you are going to be tree decorating soon! WOW
I DO NOT know how you do it!


It is so sweet to be helping your family . . . we will still be here, don't worry.


Debby@Just Breathe said...

Praying for Brooklyn.
Hooray for the potty training.
I can't imagine decorating already!
Sounds like fun being the decorater. Your so busy I don't know how you can ever find time to blog.
