Got nothing.

It has been a slow few weeks. The kind that are so nice. Naps on the weekends, hanging out with family, and just really enjoying each other. We have been working around the house...still working on that darn scrapbook room. I finally got drapes in our bedroom and I am loving how they turned out. I have a few more projects in the works that I am excited to see completed.

Tomorrow is February 1st. This starts our 14 days of love notes. I love leaving little gifts for Jarred and Ava in their little mailboxes. What do you guys do to show love?

What is a post without a few pictures? So, here you go:
What is a girl to do when mommy does not give you the beaters? Lick anyway! lick lick2
Wants to me like mommy!

I hope you all have a great week! Vacation for us soon, can't wait!

Random thoughts from me.

It has been a rough week. The kind that your glad when your days are done. If you know me I tend to analyze a problem to death. I tend to care what people are thinking or saying way to much. Big news flash is people let you down. God does not. He cares when no one else does and ultimately what he thinks is truly the only thing that really matters.

I had a revelation today. I was called for bigger things. Maybe it is to be a mentor to a group of young 20s on Monday nights. Maybe it is to be the best Sunday school teacher to the 2 year olds. Or maybe it is to be a good wife and a good mom. Whatever that bigger thing is I so desire to get it right.

A very wise women wrote today that bitterness can be contagious. I don't want to be a bitter person. I want God to use me in big ways.

Just because she looked cute!

A long over due Happy New Year

Happy New year. Sorry it has taken me so long in wishing you this. I hope you are all having a blessed New Year! We have been busy around here. It seemed to take me much longer to get the Christmas down this year. (I am thinking next year I am scaling down, but I do say this every year.) We have been busy making Ava's room a more big girl room. We have taken out the rocking chair to make room for her new kitchen and all the "junk" that goes with it! I am also currently working on getting my scrapbook room cleaned. This year I must get caught up. I must, I must. I am only about a year and a half behind. It is stressing me out to just type this!

I am so looking forward to this upcoming year. I know there are going to be so many happy memories made just as there were last year. Bring on 2011, I am ready!

Thought I would share a few pictures from New Years weekend. We spent it celebrating Christmas with Jarred's family. Christmas-Tompkins2 Christmas-Tompkins Christmas-Tompkins.3
Don't you love that Ava knows exactly how to use a camera. I think this clearly shows that she has one shoved in her face way to often. This picture for sure cracks me up. Christmas is just not Christmas if Brooke and I don't get a new purse organizer. The Thomas the train round house was a huge hit with both kiddos. Ava, does Mommy really have to buy you a train set? Aren't baby dolls fun? It was also an added treat that we had the chance to visit with Danny, Amanda, and kiddos. We sure had a great weekend.

Happy New Year again to you all. I pray many blessings for you and all your families in 2011!
