Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

Some fun happenings with some hospital pics of Tessa

More fun pics of Tessa
Here are the boys "oogling" at her. They were so excited to finally hold her. Although Branson has yet to hold her. I think her tinyness makes him nervous.
Brock loving on Tessa. And he's happy as can be despite the fact that she's screaming.
He wasn't very happy when I took her away to feed her.
Brock meeting his new sister for the 1st time.
Me and the new girl :D

Some hecka fun earings I made with the help of my friend Jen Wagner. Alice guitar pics, crystals, sterling silver chain and and earing hook. So easy and so stink'n cute!!!

James won for fastest car at pinewood derby. Which was funny because Bran prepared him with "....this is not a design that will be the fastest...."And me with my love of trucks said, " don't say that! Trucks rock!"
What do you know..... Trucks do rock!!!!!
And here is Branson ice skating for the 1st time at one of his friends birthday parties a few weeks ago. He "walked" around once and was done. He is in the red jacket.

Aww, I miss you!!!! How's that little girl? I need to come see you still! So sorry that I haven't yet.

That's funny- I think you either love or hate ice skating! I love the pics of the boys with her- I'm sure they're enthralled (sp?). To answer your question- we are attempting to plan a trip down over spring break as a family- that, for us, is the last week of March... I'm still waiting to see if my boss' give it to me or not... not that it would stop me from going!

i love brock totally oblivious to the fact that tessa is screaming! and my header... you caught me, it's a secret, my sister does it. She creates the collage in photoshop, then sticks it in my header...she creates my backgrounds too, i can't take credit for any of my blog cuteness!

those pictures of Tessa are so darling! Brandson is so cute. he cracks me up, and Brockers... he looks so cute holding her while she's scraming, it's like he's enkoying it! haha. Congrats to James!!! That is so fun. I remember when I was a Den Mother everyone wanted the fastest car! Fun! Are you guys coming for the blessing? Just so you know my feeling would not be hurt if you couldn't make it, but I would LOVE it if you could! Let me know.

Hey so I got the font the same way I get the background ... the cutest blog on the block. Then go to block secrets and then there are a few different things you can do with your blog. Anyway, we totally should do a date night, and I am going to my dad's for spring break, but not the whole break, so we should do something (girls night and/or date night)sometime while I'm still here. I don't leave until the 11th so I'll be here before then.

Those are really cute pics with the boys and Tessa. Brent is still a little hesitant to get very close to Derrick. He gets a little braver every day though.
