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!!!!

Christams Fun and the joy that comes from offically not caring about what you get but what you gave.

So while I spent 2 hours hunting down this amazing large steam pot (thank you prego target lady for helping me find it) Bran wrapped up by himself over 60 tamales.
Our Christmas Eve dinner. Heaven on a plate.
Christmas Eve pj's and new couch blankets. I was tired of them dragging their bedding off their beds to watch tv when they were cold.
The boys with there new beanies from Auntie Ambs.
Sweet Tessa Lou and her new soft buddy. I love her sparkly Santa hat! It matches the one I have.
Me trying on my new homemade scarf from Ambs and my new wanna be Dolche and Gabana shades.
My aunt Keri Sue brought this out and a flood of memories came. I played with this amazing Amish toy when I was there age!!! How crazy is that! They loved the marble toy.
The kids with Great Grandma and Grandpa Allen.
Funny story about Brock. The other night he came running into our room saying that there was a monster outside. We tryed to convince him otherwise but he was convinced. Then he said
that,"daddy a monster".
Me: "No, daddy's not a monster."
Brock: "Yes huh! He has...... he has..... he has big nose!"
LOLOLOLOL!!!! Hilarious!

Another funny story
Brock sitting and drawling a picture. Branden comes in the kitchen and we suggest that he draws a picture of Daddy.
So he makes a oval and says "his head"
Then makes 2 dots for eyes and a smiling happy face style mouth.
We tell him, "don't for get his nose."
He draws a big circle clown style nose.
The we say, "don't forget his ears" and he makes nice ears.
Then we ask, "where is his body?"
He starts to draw a stick figure torso. He stops, looks and the pic and exclaims
"Haha! Daddy looks like balloon!"
What's so funny is he totally did.
