An award to share...

Kate @ auntiecakes was so kind as to give me this award, Thanks Kate! I was a little intimidated at first, you know ...lil ole me?... and then there's the ten interesting facts about me, really, ten?,really, interesting?, well I was really honored that she picked me so I wanted to play along so here goes.

1.I am the second of twelve children-8 boys, 4 girls and yes us us girls did most of the work!

2. At our last family reunion I was a snake charmer for the Kirby Carnival (not sure if those pics should ever be released to the public!)

3.I rearrange our house, pictures, furniture, everything around constantly.

4.I used to do craft shows with my best friend-my sister Molly- and we used to do primitives (you know the kind- the uuuuuglyyyy dolls) but now I just love everything glitter and white and restful.

5. My dining room table is unfortunately my work table and so is always a disaster, I have to peek through the window to see how wide to open the front door...depends on who's on the other side!

6. I have a reputation of picking up junk so it can have a new life and so have found stuff (treasures) left anonymously on my porch!

7. I lost my mom this year and miss her everyday.

8. When I was growing up she, my mom, called me her right hand and my brothers and sisters called me goody 2 shoes! I just couldn't help myself!

9. I hate to ask for help for anything and so have moved enormous pieces of furniture by myself- someone has to keep the chiropractor in business, right?

10. The most important fact about me is that I love being a mom and thank God for blessing me with that honor everyday.

now to pass this award on to 7 other bloggers I think you need to know...(maybe you already do!)

These are all great places to visit to fill you with inspiration, check them out!

  5. Hello Theresa
    It is so nice to meet you... Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I had to laugh because it was a big no no in our house growing up to write xmas also...I can say I have never done it and probably never will. My birthday is the week of Christmas so my parents always said that I was fortunate to have shared my birthday with Jesus - I still think that. I am sorry about your mom, I lost my dad this past year.

  6. Hi Theresa:
    Thanks for the award...I am very flattered!! I will try and get something posted this week.
    Thanks too for all of your sweet comments about my blog. I read your comments to my husband and he just kept saying that I was going to get a big head :-)
    I enjoyed reading about you....12 kids in your family....all I can say is Wow!! It was crazy enough with the six of us so I can't imagine doubling that!
    I'm glad to have met a new blogger friend.
    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  7. Thanks so much for the sweet award! I am honored to accept and will be posting in a few days! Thank you for thinking of me! Hugs, Coralie

  8. So much fun to read all your facts! I feel like we are kindred spirits! I too, constantly rearrange my house. So sorry about your mom. I am thankful my mom is living near to us and we are able to see her all the time. And we would all love to see those snake charmer pictures!

  9. Congrats, and great choices for the award you're passing on!
    Have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
