We are teaming up with Jessica from Lilla Rose today for Yay Free Friday!! 

I had never heard of Lilla Rose before Jessica contacted me and let me say --any thing to keep this hair mop of mine in order grabs my attention!  They have very pretty items and my Lola is in L.O.V.E. with every single one of these hair pretty sparkles!! 

The part I love the best is that they are EASY!
Here is some more info from Jessica herself...

The most popular item by far is the Flexi-clip. Here's some info about it!

Women who use the flexi clip say it is so comfortable, they forget they are wearing it. The wide variety of designs, the patented sliding pin, and array of colors make the flexi clip unique. The beaded wire really does flex around the hair. They are known for their strength and longevity! They come in 7 sizes for lots of different hair types and hair styles. See the sizing and styling videos here: to find the perfect one for you!

Lilla Rose also has hair sticks, decorative bobbie pins, the super popular you-pins, adjustable beaded headbands, and even badge holders!

Right now I am offering new customers a great deal: Buy any 3 products from my website: and then email me a 4th choice (up to $16 value) and I will send it to them for FREE.

The winner of this giveaway will receive one item of their choice from my website completely free, no shipping charge!  {Item must have a value of $16 or less and the winner will need to create an account on my website in order for me to send them the prize.}

---------Doesn't that sound great!  I encourage you to check out the sizing and styling videos!---------

Whispers in the dark --"Wake up! It's Christmas!"

I heard whispers in the dark followed by the creaking of our old hardwood floor.  Footsteps down the stairs for a peek and a quick run back to her room.  More whispers and different set of footsteps.  The house stirs awake with quiet giggles and "Wake up!  It's Christmas!"  I roll over and squint at the time.  It's 5:15 am.  Oh my....

They all travel downstairs and I can hear them talking in excitement.  They just couldn't hold in the joy!  And I think maybe it's a bit like the shepherds on that first Christmas morning, though the gift they saw was the best gift of all....

I just laid in the dark and listened.  It wasn't long before I heard the two smallest making their way back up the stairs.  They stopped at our doorway.  "You do it."  "No you!" with giggles,  proceeded the playing of one of our musical ornaments off the tree.

Barking dogs singing Jingle Bells! 

Oh how they laughed and ran back down the stairs as quickly as they could!

It's 5:30 am. I make my way downstairs to four happy smiles, make a pot of strong coffee and light a fire in the fireplace!  Keith drew numbers to see who would open their stocking first. 

Hope you all had a beautiful Christmas that was filled with lots of wonderful memories!

Just Stuff...

Just a post of random ramblings of things to remember....

Like the way he sticks his tongue out when he decorates cookies

And the enormous amount of sprinkles they use --every year!

The "building" of the CHRISTmas tree.
That it was Tristin's turn to put the star on this year
Snowflake twinkle lights and tree's sitting on old trunks
COLD & Rainy 4-wheeler rides!
Enjoying mock trials at School --Mr. Pig vs The Big Bad Wolf
Natalie getting her ears re-pierced
CHRISTmas hats and horse fun!
Morning skies that I could soak in all day
How we stop to take random pictures of goats and huge wooden chickens along the side of the road!
And taking time to slowly soak in beauty of the season
Simply praising God for all these blessings and more!
