It is hard for me to even think about trees in this weather, but the fact is I HAVE TO…and soon….
This will just be a “little random” before the season starts.
If you missed it, read this post. I have received so much feedback from it through comments and email. Check out MilandDil Designs and see who the winner is on her giveaway. Terri is my head elf and her Etsy store is full of great things.
Jack and I saw THE HELP this afternoon. I think it was the best movie I have seen this year. I LOVED IT. Amanda took the boys to see The Smurfs and here are a couple of cute shots… We were just a door down at the theater.
Jack thought you had to keep the 3D glasses on the entire time.
Two Special Boys
And this last one makes me LAUGH…Do you think Jack has fashion design in his future?
His favorite words are TA DA….when he enters a room… He was totally dressed for the day and suddenly appeared in a new outfit…. What you can’t see is he had flip flops on the wrong feet with white socks..so picture that…and yes that is a pull up…. Don’t you love the way he tucked his shirt in.
School starts for Parker on Thursday. That always makes me sad. I love the summer with no schedule and little's everywhere. We are all (as in all the kids and little's) making one short trip Labor Day weekend with all the family going to Dallas for the LSU game…and maybe LEGOLAND and a few other fun places…
The summer just went too fast.
Check out my Pinterest Boards. I am so proud of them. I have 100 plus boards and have worked so hard on them I feel like I am so organized and have my on catalog. BUT IT IS Addicting….
Many of you enjoyed reading the guest post a few months ago from my dear friend, Mike, the handsome Marine. He has promised me he would write again this month. His words are always profound and thought provoking.
See how random this got….Sorry. My mind is pretty random these days.
One last thing…Ashley, a precious little girl I have written about many times is in MUCH need of prayer.
Her Mom, Trish, really needs encouragement. They face some of the hardest decisions I can imagine making. She is in the hospital here in Shreveport. I hope to stop by and take her some goodies tomorrow.
I will be back soon with our first holiday giveaway and some pictures I snapped at market of some new looks.
I am sure you are totally worn out from reading this…
I am a wife to Jack, Mom to Greg and Amanda, Mother-in-law to Micah and Dana. Grammy to Parker, Jack, Austin and Grayson, which just happens to be the best job I have EVER had.
I have owned Baskets and Bows for the past 17 years, which primarily is a gift basket business year around and a Holiday Decorating service for 3 months out of the year.
I live in Louisiana. I am an admitted Christmas and Disney addict! Your interest in my "tree decorating" business, on my family blog, Teresa's Treasures, is the reason for this special blog. I plan to give you tips, pictures, and stories that will help you make your holiday decorating a bit easier and most of all MAGICAL. That's my goal for all my clients and I hope I can pass that on to you.
Feel free to email me any questions you may have. I will try my best to answer or help you solve decorating problems.
You may find the blog title strange if you have not been a reader of my family blog. Check out the link to MY FAMILY and I think you will understand. Ten years ago, just as the baby born in Bethlehem on Christmas Day changed my life, a Baby Boy named Parker radically changed our lives. Both of those babies are the best things that EVER happened to me. When Faith Hill sang this song last year, it just became my favorite. If music on the blog bothers you or you are not a Faith Hill fan, feel free to mute it on the player.
