This is our time we look forward to all year long! Where the weather turns crisp, the air smells of corn dogs and funnel cakes and turkey legs. People travel across the United States just to come back home to the Yamboree! Parades, food, family, laughter!! I love Yamboree...but these past two years I've devoted the entire time to doing my Scentsy booth. Alexis comes in to help and this year she brought Danika. I love the time I get to spend with her sharing Scentsy with returning customers and new ones too. I loved that Danika got to spend quality time with her cousins. All in all was another great Yamboree for the kids and for us Scentsy lovers too! Can't wait until next year!

I can be honest

This is my little Primary class I teach on Sunday. We talked about being honest and what that means exactly. We talked about how the 2000 Stripling Warriors were true and honest. They loved putting on their headbands and marching around like warriors! I know Jarom wore his the next two days everywhere we went!! ...and yes that is my guy giving the Rockstar sign!! If we could all just remember to be as honest as these Sunbeams are!

Happy Halloween!!

I've been reading several blogs lately about decorating for fall. I am not very good at decorating at all. I have one fall vase with fall fruit/flowers attached to it that my mom gave me a few years ago for my birthday..other than that I am not so good. I usually get some pumpkins and mums and stair step them on my front porch.
 This is Jack- Our standby Halloween candy junkie! Jaici discovered him when she was just a wee little. I have a picture somewhere of her on top of the table sneaking some goodies!!
 Of course you can't forget the decorative hand towel for the kitchen!!
 I love these new warmers Scentsy has made available for the holidays...not just Christmas!

 I am either super cheap or I just don't have the eye to know how to cutesy stuff up!! Regardless of my abilities or should I say lack of abilities to be like Martha Stewart, I do love fall. It is my favorite. I love scarves, hats and pulling out my boots from last year! This time of year is so inviting to me. The leaves are changing and yes it may get to 90 degrees this afternoon but when we go to bed and when I wake to go run, it'll be hats and gloves! It's pretty chilly in the a.m. right now !!! I love it!!! This time of year is totally me!

A time to celebrate!

This precious daughter of mine turned 9 on October 1, 2010. I can hardly believe it! Jarom and I took her lunch and a goodie bag to school to help her celebrate! I love her and the ever so sweet spirit and calming effect she brings to our home! I would be the lone female if it weren't for my little sidekick Jaici! I love her so much and feel so blessed to be called her mother!

Give Thanks!

It's the time of year again where the leaves are changing and football season is in full swing. Here we are actually getting chilly mornings and evenings and easier afternoons. Here in Gilmer, we are all ready and talking of feeling Yamboree coming soon....which for those who don't know what it's our local fair that goes on for 3 and half days. This warmer is this month's special with Scentsy and it just made me think...that this is the time for pumpkins and reflection..but can't we remember to "Give Thanks" year round? I personally love when the air turns cooler and sweaters and jackets are a must. I am truly grateful for the amazing family I am blessed to spend each and every day with. For an amazing husband who loves me and spoils me entirely too much. He is truly the best thing about me. I am grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ. I am thankful for my amazing babies who make my life exciting. I am grateful to be with Scentsy and for the amazing opportunities it has put in my path. I am grateful for my bestest friends. I hope to try and carry this "give thanks" attitude a little longer than normal this for you to do the same.
