Got a sweet tooth?

These cookies are SO easy, quick, and YUMOLICIOUS!

Unbelievable Cookies
1 c. peanut butter (crunchy is best)
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Stir all ingredients and roll into balls.  Dip fork in sugar and do the traditional criss-cross peanut butter cookie pattern.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until light brown.

The Zippo!

So, as I have mentioned, my husband bought a new Zippo lighter.  Here's a similar pic:
I found out last night that my PASTOR has taught him to light the holy Zippo by striking the little wheel thingy on his leg.

Well............at least he has good life insurance!  :)

My husband........

I adore him.  I have put him through so much, yet he still loves me.  When I was a kid, he was EXACTLY the kind of husband I prayed for.  Every woman should have their very own Andy!  To quote Steve Martin from Cheaper by the Dozen "twenty-three years later and we still got the heat!"

I love you more than any words could ever convey, my precious!

One of the biggest shocks ever..........

So, I'm leaving Home Depot one day and a text message comes through (from Facebook, no less) on my phone.  It read, "hello jill its kelli i was just letting you know that you will be a grandmother! I don't know if daniel has got in touch with you or not so i figured i would let you know! im 8 weeks."

Since it was about 98 degrees with ridiculously high humidity I thought I misread it.  So, I read it again..........and again, and again.  They I called my husband, Andy, and read it to him.  We were speechless.  I can't say that I was immediately thrilled.  You see, our oldest son, Daniel, was incarcerated at the time.  NOT TO MENTION, this meant that I was gonna be a mumzie at FORTY-TWO!  :)

The past few months have been a roller coaster.  The job market is slim pickins and neither has been able to find work. But I know that ultimately, this will all work out because I know God has this under control and I truly believe that Daniel and Kelli really do love each other.

I CANNOT wait to snuggle my first grandson, Drake Charlton, when he gets here. And I CANNOT wait to be a mumzie....even if I am 42!

Here are some pics:

Daniel and Kelli, Christmas 2010.

And here is my sweet grandson.  Hoping March seventh gets here SOON!

Levi loving on his sister.......

Quite certain that no words are necessary...........

I'm all shook up.........

And, no, I'm not Elvis.

Out of the blue, one of my kids asked what Georgia looked like when we found her dead.  How does one put, "Well, she was limp, lifeless, and blue" into lingo that teenagers will understand yet not be freaked out by?  Only my youngest three were home that horrific night in March 2006.  Most of my oldest kids were with my mom.

I don't know.  Why do kids have to die?  Why can't we just all live forever and be happy?

Gonna be a looooooooooooooooooooooong, sleepless night.  Too many emotions to sleep.

Georgia, I miss you.  We did all we could to save you that night, but it just wasn't meant to be.  You, Papaw, and Joshua have fun in Heaven.  I'll see you someday.

One of the greatest things....

About getting older is having to pee and in five minutes having to pee again.  Add to the fact it is 2:36 in the morning and I can't sleep makes it FABULOUS!  (Can you see me rolling my eyes?)  And even better....my parents passed on the I-can't-sleep gene.  HAPPY!

Just curious.......

How many rolls of toilet paper do NORMAL sized families use in a day?  I think we are on roll number 3 just in the downstairs bathroom.  (I should mention that Asher uses a whole roll per poop.)

My life rocks....but I'm broke from buying toilet paper.  Can I get a government subsidy for Angel Soft?

Snow day....

Number THREE and Asher can outscreech any owl on the planet!  Xanax, please!
