I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Happy Birthday Emilee

Today is a very special person's birthday.

My first little sister, my Emilee.

My little sister is amazingly creative. She has such a talent to make art out of anything.
Any medium - but especially fabric.

She makes things for my boys ALL the time. She made this quilt for Canaan.

And this one for Zion.

Both my boys have a Christmas quilt.

And we all have matching aprons.

I am sure if I had the energy to go look, then scan them in, I could find pictures of her through the years, creating beautiful things... but I am too tired to go digging tonight, so we will have to settle for what I can find already on the computer.

She plays with my boys, is not afraid to get dirty....

Yet she is one of the most beautiful, polished, "girly girls" I know.


And of course, as anyone who knows her can confirm, she is an absolute riot!


Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people in the whole wide world!
(and I know people all over the world)
