Thank You, Tracey, Crystal, And Becky!

I want to shout out a BIG thank you to Tracey at the Grace Comes By Hearing blog!

Daniel brought the mail in the other day and handed me another package with a frog on it. (Shiver!) ;)

I opened it up, and this is what was inside the package.....



Isn't Tracey the most thoughtful and sweet lady?...I mean if you don't count the cotton balls. (Shiver.) ;)

Tracey, if you are reading this, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness; I have just been so touched by your kindness to me. You are a very special lady, and I am thankful and blessed to call you friend.

I also want to say, "Thank you, Crystal!" She gave me this beautiful bloggy award that you see here.



Upon receiving this award, I'm supposed to tell you about "Things that make me happy."

But, since I am a very visual person, I will show and tell you what makes me happy, as opposed to "just" telling you.;) (And these are in no particular order, just so you know.)

My family.....



My sweet boys....



My Allie Girl.....



My handsome hubby......



Blogging and all of my "bloggy" friends.....



And of course, all of my "real life" friends, especially Kenny......;)



One more award before I go. This award came from Becky. Isn't it cute?



Sigh.

Thank you, Becky! I love your blog too! (I'm sorry it took me so long to get this posted.)

And instead of trying to just pick a few of my bloggy friends to pass these awards to, I want you all to have them. Every single one of you are unique and have your very own special blogging style, and I love each and every one of your blogs. So, go ahead, take these beautiful awards! You deserve them!;)

Beautiful family, and congratulations on the awards. You are a blessing to US. Thanks!!

Dianne said...

Ag shame, thanks for the award, I love you this much too dahlink, mwah!

I'm sorry you were disappointed by the lack of wedding footage, I have a lot to go through as I was mainly video taping it, they had no money for a video, so Ange and
I did it.

But my mom took lots of photos and so as soon as I get them sorted, I'll be posting about it, and Roxanne gave me strict instructions that she would like wedding coverage for at the very least 3 days.

Hmmm maybe I'll post part 1 tomorrow after all.

Right, back to you. So thanks for the award, and as you say life just wouldn't be the same without all your boys and your girl.

I just love love love that quote at the end, it is so incredibly true and exactly how I feel about meeting you. ;o)
