Each year Momma takes the kids to Toy's R Us to purchase Toys for Tots. This year they had a contest to see if boys or girls could get closest to their $100/person budget. Lyndon and Carl worked hard to calculate as they went...unfortunately they went over budget by about $70 because they found really neat skateboards that must have been placed in the incorrect place on the shelf....Lets just say two kids will be really excited with their expensive skateboards....the funny thing is the boys thought it was such a good bargain to find the skateboards for only $19.99 that they bought several! At least it is for a great cause! After checking out they dropped their gifts off to the firemen and had a quick fire truck tour. I think that it is WONDERFUL that Momma takes the kids to help those less fortunate. She is teaching them lifelong lessons!
I am blessed to be the wife of a great husband, Cody & the mother to a wonderful little boy, Lyndon. I have always been interested in design: 1st wanting to be a fashion designer, & then an interior decorator. I am neither, BUT do love to continually have projects at home & to give advice to family & friends when asked. Another passion of mine is children & I put that passion to work in my classroom as a 3rd grade reading teacher. It is amazing to see students 'enjoying' the learning process. I love to shop (bargains especially). I am always up for a challenge & strive for perfection. I love to spend time with my family & wish I would make more time for friends. I am truly blessed & have choose to use this blog as a way of keeping a scrapbook of Lyndon, share our day-to-day life with family, to express my love for design, & to nosey into other peoples' ideas. I love to look at others' blogs; it reminds me of my love of driving around looking at houses-only I get to peek inside now. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
