Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Last year hubby brought back a bunch of his Mom's stuff that has been in storage for years. Lots of it we still haven't gone through, but slowly we are getting to it. One of the things that I found was her jewelry box filled with costume jewelry. Unfortuantely she passed away before I came along so I never had the privilege of getting to know her. But from many stories I understand that she was definately a girly-girl type of lady who was always put together very well and of course everything always matched!

When I found the box I knew that I would never have much use for most of it - I rarely wear jewelry and I am doin quite well if I actually match! But I did go through it and found a couple things that I kept, I now have a string of pearls that belonged to my husband's mother. At least I think they are real - but I am pretty clueless! Anyway, finding it was perfect and special.

I didn't know what to do with the rest of it, but the kids solved that! They were so excited with all the necklaces that I let them play with it all for awhile. I told them that they were Grandma Renee's and that she wanted them to have them. I think Grandma Renee would be thrilled!!!

I don't think that Carlee has been converted to a girly-girl. Afterall, the reason she does not have a shirt on is because they had just come inside and she was so dirty that I couldn't salvage the shirt and it ended up in the laundry. Beleive it or not, she was even dirtier than Ben!
My friend Helen said it perfectly - a tomboy with her bling!
