Our baby turned 10 today...TEN!!!

Happy 10th Birthday
Hannah Marie
We Love You!!!!
Ten years ago today at 12:52 p.m. in the afternoon my husband and I met the most beautiful baby girl we had ever seen. God had blessed us with our first child, our daughter, Hannah. When I saw her for the very first time, I never knew my heart could feel so much love, it felt as though it would burst. And now ten years later that love has only grown more & more. Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!! We Love You So Much!!!
Now....quit growing so darn fast!! LOL!!


Hmmm....maybe why she has allergies now?
Ok Honey, please don't eat the flowers...


Double Awwww!!!

My angel....

Look at that teeny tiny foot...yes it is love

My Sweetheart....

Learning to walk...

Where does the time go???

Hugs and kisses Sweetie Pie!!!
We love and adore you with all our hearts!!!
Happy Birthday!!!

My heart is broken...


May 1, 2003 - September 17, 2009

Forever in our hearts

Our sweetheart

We love you Spook!

Have you a cat in Heaven, Lord?
and do You pat it's head?

Does he sit up and beg each night
before You go to bed.

Does he look up with shining eyes
when he sees Your smiling face?

Does he purr softly and crawl up
into Your lap because that's his special place?

Have You a cat in Heaven, Lord?

Is there room for just one more?
Cause my little cat died today
he'll be waiting at your door.

Please take him into Heaven, Lord
and keep him there for me,

feed him, pet him, love him Lord
that's all he'll ask of Thee.

Your favorite chair is vacant now...

no eager purrs to greet me.

No softly padded paws to run

ecstatically to meet me.

No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry

will say it's time for feeding.

In time, I'll put away your bowl and all

the things you won't be needing.

I will miss you so much my little friend

for I could never measure

the happiness you brought me,

the comfort and the pleasure.

And since God put you here to share

in earthly joy and sorrow;

I know there is a place for you

in Heaven's bright tomorrow.

Asking for prayers for my family as we deal with the loss of our beloved pet, Spooky.
Thank you all and God Bless.
Warmest wishes and hugs, Kimi

I just wanted to share an early Christmas present to...shhh..myself :) Found this great deal on ebay...3 yds of various beautiful mohairs. Also was so priviledged to 'meet' Heidi Hollis from Citico Ridge Bear Co., she was the artist selling the lot of mohair. She was so very nice! It was fun chatting back and forth with her :0) And, she was soooo kind in sending an extra gift of several sets of glass eyes along with my mohair! What a sweetheart!! Thanks again Heidi! Ok...here's my gorgeous new mohair....

Isn't it beautiful...I can just picture the bears already :)

I can't hardly wait!!!

Another sneak peek...

Here's another peek at the progress of my new bear...please forgive the blurry picture and the fact that the poor critter only has one eyelid in place at the moment...

I'm really happy with his progress so far, I can't wait to get his other eyelid in place and do more shading which I sooo enjoy :) But sadly, it will have to wait until later on this afternnoon, the grocery store is calling and is in desperate need of more of my money so I better not make them wait...lol :)

Thanks for stopping by!

A lion? A bear? Oh my!

Here's the progress of my newest creation....I'm thinking there's a little 'Rooooar' in my new bear...what do you think?

Here's the little ones foot...

Stay tuned.... :o)

Home again

Just got back home from a lovely trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We stayed in this beautiful cabin located deep in the woods in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. No internet access, no phone...just God's beauty all around. No other cabins or homes near by, only a little creek across the drive to keep us company.

Yes, in case you're wondering, my husband had to drag me kicking and screaming when it was time to leave for home...

While folding my laundry today...

Have you ever wondered where all those socks mysteriously disappear to out of your dryer, you know, the ones you can never find the matches for? I think I may have solved the mystery...

Upon closer inspection...

I think we got our man...

A Producer in the making??

Presenting my 4 year old son's film making debut. Viewer discretion is advised...

***No parents were injured during the making of this film***

I feel an Acadamy Award coming on...

Blinded by the light...

Ever been woke up by a 4 year old before? If so, then you know they can come up with some pretty creative ideas to get you out of bed in the morning. I thought I would share the story of how my son got me out of bed yesterday morning.

Now I must first set the scene so you can appreciate this story from a first person point of view of the events as they unfolded.

I am sleeping peacefully in my dark, dark room when I hear my little boy's sweet voice ask "Mommy are you going to get up?"..."Yes honey - in just a minute or two ok?". I hear tiny footsteps running away down the hall as I fall back into a relaxing sleep...once again I hear that sweet voice "Mommy?"...I slowly open my eyes...and when what to my wondering eyes should appear but a camera flash being held quite near...as my eyes attempt to focus and recoup from the glare...away he flew down the hall only his tiny footsteps could I hear....
