Saturday Chatter

A blog I really enjoy is Kelli's Blog..."There's No Place Like Home". Now, although I have made my own homemade cards before...I haven't done so in a while. She posts often of some of the homemade cards she makes and it inspired me to start making my own again. I have a woman I know who lost her son who was my age, a few years back....on my anniversary. This lady is one of the sweetest is her husband. I think of her and pray for her often. Losing a child is one of the hardest things in life to go through, in my opinion. Anyway....I try to send her cards every few months to let her know I am thinking of and praying for her. I wish there was more I can do...but I just pray that she doesn't find it annoying. (Sometimes I worry that my personality is overwhelming and annoying to people).....Anywayyyy....above is the pic of the card I made her. I pray it gives her a smile and lets her know she is loved and thought about!

Last evening...we drove to a high school football game. My BIL coaches and likes when Chris is there. Jaxson got to have a sleepover at my mom's and Madelyn spent the evening with my MIL so X could have a fun evening with mommy and daddy! He seemed to have a good time! I am glad we got to spend special time with him. I think that is important to do with each child! :)

So that is some Saturday chatter for you! I hope you are all doing well and having a lovely weekend! I think I may have some fun things going on this weekend...I guess we shall see! xoxo


  1. I, too, have become lax in my card-making but with resolve, I plan to get busy and make some Halloween for all the grandkids and a couple very personal ones. Thanks for that!!
    The little one is adorable. Back when mine were young, as a single parent, it was difficult but I planned and executed special days foreach of my kids every month. They all looked forward to those days...Ahhhh, to be young again..............

  2. What a cute little guy! Sounds like you had a good time - he looks pretty happy! Card making isn't something I've gotten into yet. There are so many things I want to learn to do, I have to pace myself! Have a beautiful day, Miss Katy!

  3. Thanks for sharing this with us!! I have been wanting to make cards for a while now. Your hadwriting is beautiful Katy!!! It is so nice getting cards from people in the mail! Blessings!!

  4. Beautiful picture of the sunflowers!

    I think it is so sweet that you remembering the woman who lost her son. So thoughtful!

    The "LittleGUY" IS CUTE!
    Bet he loves when Momma plays with scissors, glue, and cardstock. ;)

  11. First of all, I think sending your friend a card every few months to say you're thinking of her and her husband is a beautiful sentiment. I don't think your personality is overwheling, I think it's thoughtful and Christ like!! Losing a child has to unspeakably, I cannot imagine.

    Secondly, Your kids are so dare adorable! Aren't Aunts and uncles the best!!! You're sisters blog is too cute, I love the green van.
