Now that we got that taken care of I can bare my heart out. First things first. I need to give a gigantic huge cyber space THANK YOU to my sweet friend Mackenzie for the beautiful design she did to this blog. Isn't it beautiful???? It was such an awesome surprise when I came home from school yesterday and found it! Those of you who are new to this blog, those sweet children on my header are my pride and joy. The boys are my nephews and that sweet baby girl is my niece. The two other stunning children are not children any more. Carole is my sister and Aaron is my brother and I think that just about sums my title right up. Pieces of my heart, yup, family means a lot to me!!
And speaking of family......on Sunday afternoon we are having a family reunion.:) It's my Aunt's birthday and the only thing she has requested for a gift was to have her whole family together. So...yup another trip down to my grandmother's. YAY!! Love when that happens. We are leaving tomorrow morning and I will ask all of you to pray for a safe trip and a good time once we are there. We are also going to be picking up my sister Carole. I am not sure if I mentioned this or not but, Carole has been down there for two weeks!!!!! She has been babysitting our little niece. She brought her school work and she has been having a blast. Although, I must admit I miss her a lot!!:)
Next on the agenda.... once upon a time I was real savy with this thing called "a blog" I then started finding more things on my plate and then there came a point when I only picked up my fork and pressed published and left the blog design to Mackenzie and the rest up in the air until I had time to tweak different things on this nook of mine. However, I have noticed this called followers on a lot of my bloggie friends blogs and I even have a follower, I found out. So the reason why I didn't add this new fangled feature was because I was afraid I would have no followers and I would look like a girl who has neglected her blog and nobody cares to check it anymore.:) And so I wasn't going to add it, however I thought with my new look and actually posting I should do something different today. So I am going to add this feature. So do you wanna follow me??? It may be fun???:) So I will add that hopefully when I am done writing this post.:)
Well, I guess it is time for me to stop this rambling once again. I appreciate each one of you who faithfully comment or even who don't comment but faithfully reads my blog. Even if I need a lesson or two on keeping up with my little corner on the net.:) Hopefully I will have plenty of pictures to show of this weekend!!

I wrote a simple word on the board and encouraged one of my students to sound it out. We first focused on the blend in the word... BA which says??? Come on bloggers I know you can do it!!! That's right BA! Very good.
We then concentrated on the last letter T which says t...t...t as in table.:) All of the sudden my little student said "Bat" I was so thrilled!!
He said "Miss_______ I am going to go home and read a book!" LOL
Well, I need to head to bed.School is tomorrow and I am sure I will come home with many more "proud moments" to share with all of you!:)

Instead I am going to direct all my bloggie people to a very fun blog! I just was over there and frankly this post is just like all her other ones fun to read. So, bloggy people go on over to my kindergarten teacher's blog and have a good giggle. Yes, indeedy Mrs.H was my kindergarten teacher and one of my early role models who encouraged me at a young age to become a teacher. ((Smile))
Well, hopefully I will be back tomorrow with a longer post but until then go over and say hi to Mrs.H....I won't give you a failing grade or anything if you want to say "Hi" to me as well. ((Smirk))

Thank you Steph!! I am going to present two of my bloggie friends with this award.
Danielle (Who is going to have her baby soon and very soon)
Jessica (Who's due around the same time as my mommy)
This is the other award Steph gave me and the two bloggie buddies that get presented with this award are...
Morgan Denise was presented with that last award because I just found out today that she presented me with this lovely award. So with this one I am only honoring one person and that person is....
Julie: The reason why I am only nominating one this time, is because I wanted to make a "big deal" over this blogger. Julie found me over at my blog only a month or so after I started. I was actually quite honored to see an "adult" who really enjoyed my blog and said she was coming back over. And she kept her promise. She came by often, laughed at my foolish posts "Amened" my serious ones and always let me know she was praying for me or that I made her smile. Well, I know she still lurks over here from time to time and I still visit her when I have a chance. I really felt like giving a beautiful award to a beautiful person.
Phew.....I am done. All this nominating stuff has made me hungry!

I have been sick for the last few days. I have had a fever and just haven't felt real good. I am feeling somewhat better today and am hoping and praying I will feel a hundred percent better tomorrow (My first day back in school).
Like I mentioned yesterday, my darling little nephew has been born! I can't wait to hold that sweet little boy. I have been able to see some pictures and he looks just like Patrick when he was a new born. It's hard to believe I was sixteen years old when my first little nephew came into this world. Yikes!
Lord willing, we are planing on going down to see all our family and friends this weekend for our late Christmas celebration. We had to cancel going down there last week due to the weather. It was our first time ever having to cancel our Christmas "tour" with our family and friends. We make the rounds when we are down for Christmas, going from house, to house, to house having Christmas all over again. But now it gives us something to look forward to, this weekend after my first week back in school.
In baby news my mom is feeling good. She does feel sick to her stomach an awful lot and just this morning her leg has been giving her trouble. She looked it up and apparently it's normal. Even though she never had this pain with any of her other children.
Well, I should sign off for now. It's about time I started packing my school bag and thinking about what to wear tomorrow. School is back in session!!:)

My newest nephew's name is Liam Joseph. I can't wait to hold this new little bundle of joy!
Saturday, January 3, 2009
I can't wait. I have been texting my brother in law off in on all day he said she still has a while to go.
Don't worry you will be the first to know when I find out when my new little nephew comes into the world!!
Please keep my sister and my new little nephew in prayer!

Can you believe 2008 is over already? I feel like it just started!! What a year! I am sure we all have had our trials and tribulations but also our victories in this last year. In my own life I experienced a summer away from home, starting my first year teaching, welcomed my first little niece into this world, found out I was going to be a big sister again, turned the big 21 and found out that growing up is not always fun.
I also know of some bloggie friends of mine that have had a big year Ashleigh (Her blog is no longer available) welcomed her husband back home from Iraq.
Courtney said her "I do" to her sweetheart, Christopher.
Jessica also said "I do" to her sweetheart, Ronnie. Our little bloggie world was saddened to hear of her two miscarried babies. But we are now rejoicing over her third pregnancy that is going very well.
Morgan Denise welcomed her little nephew into this world.
And now...we are looking toward the future...to the coming year. We don't know what God has planned this year for our lives, but good or bad if we are saved we know God is with us.
My sister Carole will be graduating high school this June. Her best friend Mackenzie will be graduating also.
My older sister Leslie will be giving me another nephew any day now.
My nephew, Patrick will be turning the big FIVE!! My other little nephew, Devyn will be turning three! And my first little niece will be turning the big ONE!
In August I will be able to hold my new little sibling.
So I hope you all will have a happy New Year!! I for one am looking forward to blogging in this new year!
