Faith has started a Treasure Tuesday and I thought what a great idea so I am going to give it a go:) I don't know how to add links yet so I will put her address in here like this www.http://faithfulmommy.typepad.com/. I hope to figure this out soon:)
So here is my treasure for today, it is a ring that my Grandma Lemmer gave to me not to long before she passed away. I spent alot of time with my grandma Lemmer because my mom, being a single mother, worked alot and I stayed with her most of the time. I loved being at her house. There were always trees to climb, other kids to ride bikes with, cards to be played, old silky nightgowns to get dressed up in, and even old trucks that provided transportation for me and my babies(wherever we might have needed to go:). My grandma was, and her memory still is, very important to me. I only wish that I would have spent more quality time with her, by that I mean talking and learning more about my family history, taking in some wise advice about love, life as she lived it, raising children and so on. But I sometimes was a spoiled, naughty teenager. I hope that she hears my prayers and thoughts of her as I lay down to sleep every night because I will always miss her and love her more than any words can say. Wow, with all that said my tresure is a ring that I had always admired and one day she said that she thought I was old enough to be able to have it. I am not sure how far back this ring goes but I think that it was her mothers at least (like I said a sometimes thoughtless, spolied teenager). I was so excited to finally posess this ring(especially when she passed, it brought a comfort to me)that I wore that ring everyday until after I became pregnant with Maddie and then my finger grew too big and now it no longer fits. So I am just saving it for when Maddie(she is named after her) gets Married. Ya know something blue, and old:) Well thanks Faith for starting this it was really fun:)

Well here it is....the first flower of the spring season!! I don't remember planting a crocus but hey maybe it was that sign from God telling us that by patiently waitng for spring he is rewarding us with this beauty:) I can't wait for the rest of the wonderful beauties to bloom:) Have a great day everyone!!

Just a little glimpse into my everyday life. My girls are usually at my feet all day long,whining, wanting or needing something. I love them dearly but when you find a hanger in your washing machine you know it's time to teach the girls to play on their own peacefully for at least an hour a day:)

Everybody has a twin right?? Thanks Ruth for saving this picture and I just had to share with all of you. This little girl on the JCPenney catalog is a spitting image of Maddie!! It is kind of strange to see this little girl that looks almost exactly like Maddie and yet have to believe that it is not. I tried to find a picture that best captures the resemblance but if you know Maddie personally you would do a double(or triple) take just as I did:)

Well I can't believe that my girls are now 4 & 2!! Where has the time gone? It has made me realize that kids are only kids once and I need to just enjoy every second with them. In these photos the girls are posing with their B-day only party hats. They recieved them from us on their first birthdays and I intend to get a picture of them in these hats on their birthday until they move out of the house:) A tradition that I'm sure they will not appreciate when adolescence hits, but hey I gave birth to them I have the right, right??

If you have a hard time seeing from the picture these are the Daffodils that I planted last fall, or maybe the fall before sure where I planted which ones. It doesn't matter though it's green and a sign that God is hearing all of our spring return prayers here in Michigan:)
