Olive Garden Buy One Take One promotion (10)

This week has been an emotional one for us with Little Man starting Kindergarten this past Monday. Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 began with more than just a fair share of tears so Hubs and I were bracing ourselves for waterworks on the first day of big kids school. By God's Grace, Little Man was brave and didn't shed a single tear. We were naturally shocked and immensely grateful for answered prayer. Yesterday was day 3 at school and we … [Read more...]

When the dentist came in to look over the work done, he seconded their commendations but did suggest we visit an orthodontist over the course of the next few months. Poor Dottie has inherited Hubs' … [Read more...]

Affordable prescription eyeglasses from EyeBuyDirect


Last year a friend of ours found out that her daughter needed prescription glasses to help her read the projector slides at school. Not having insurance to cover the cost of her glasses resulted in the family putting off getting the child a pair. Several weeks down the line they mentioned they finally ordered her a pair through EyeBuyDirect, excited that they didn't have to shell out too much on the glasses they'd been waiting to … [Read more...]

When children pray…

Is ANYTHING too hard for the LORD-

Over two years ago, we took Dottie and Little Man to the local shelter to volunteer as a trade off as we weren't able to adopt a dog of our own. From that point on, till Friday night, after praying for family members, they would pray for the animals at the shelter... that God would give them all homes and owners who would love and care for them. When children pray... To be honest, there were evenings Hubs and I … [Read more...]

7 easy hairstyles for school with Goody accessories. {#StraightAStyle}-Mommy Snippets

My 9 year old has used Goody accessories from the time she was a toddler. So when I was asked if I would review their #StraightAStyle back to school products, I couldn't help but say YES!

Some babies grow up having a favorite blanky. Others may have a pacifier they can't do without. Baby Girl has neither but she does have... The Ultimate Bib!

Deconstructed Hatch Pepper Kebabs - MommySnippets (1)

This summer has been busy. Crazy busy!! But in a good way. We were so blessed to be able to open our home to dear friends of ours who we've been friends with since my oldest was 18 months old. Several years ago they moved to the other end of this big ol' state and we've missed them so much. When we heard they were visiting our corner of Texas we insisted they bunk with us. It was two days of laughter, activity, fellowshipping around my … [Read more...]
