About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Emma's Haircut

Over the last few weeks, Emmaline has been having hair issues. Between the snot and food (yummy I know) her hair was always stuck to her face, nose and even together in large mats that were entirely impossible to comb out. So I did what any crazy mother would do... cut it off! But she had already helped with her bangs - the big weird hole in the front of her hair.
