April 2018

Time Flies!!!

so much has happened since I blogged last...not sure where to start so will get my thoughts together and write later....some short happenings:  Candace, Blaine and Hayden are expecting another baby in July; Chase was hit by a car on his motorcycle in March and is doing well and back to touring; Shaun, Misti, Kenzi and Peyton moved into a house close to the kiddos school in March.  Gary still works for SAP and works all the time but it allows us to travel some.  We bought a travel trailer in April and will take it out for the first time 4/26!!!

Blessings and Thankfulness!

I so love this poem and I love all things fall - it leads to the season of our Saviors Birth!!

Love Fall

hello Monday.
saying goodbye to Summer is bittersweet.
i LOVE Summer.
i love the sunshine.
like the heat - don't love it.
sitting by the pool.
soaking up the rays.
Summer just does something for my soul.
i am blown away with where i am.
life is ever changing.
i am in awe of life's goodness.
of my blessings.
for my family.
my children.
and right now the most 
important person in my life.
my Mr.
i am grateful.
there are no words to describe how i feel.
there just isn't a word big enough to
 describe, define or explain.
i am happy.
today i am bursting.
with happiness.
My kids are wonderful.
i love my girl.
my daughter.
my friend.
the relationship i have with her is different.
she is my middle child.
my spoiled child.
makes me laugh.
she's quick - loud - happy - fun.
she's a care-giver.
My first son - my oldest
bossy - military - loving-compassionate
has made a wonderful family
with his precious wife.
Kenzi, our first grandbaby
so witty and cheerful
Peyton our first Grandson
so loving and precious
My last born child - the youngest
funny  - spoiled - artistic
me with my Mr.
just the two of us.
my wonderful Mr.
loving, musical, compassionate,
caring, humble
there is always something to look forward to.
this Summer has been full.
chuck full.
looking forward to the Fall.
Love Fall
Love the coolness in the air.
Love the gold and yellow colors everywhere
Love that football has started
Mum's everywhere
so goodbye Summer.
hello Fall.

October 2016......

I looked for our blog and viola - it's been 2 years since I posted and so much has gone on.  We have added a precious grandson, Hay Bug and the Burns family has moved to Rockwall!!!! I can't even tell you how blessed we are and how much fun we have with the 3 grand babies.

Gary is still traveling out of town 3 days a week and I work 2 days a week teaching art at Heritage Christian Academy and Absolutely  love it!!!  I keep Hayden at least 2 days a week and try to pick up the other two one day a week from school.

We are going to Disney World in December   - just an adult trip and I can't wait!  It will be a fast one but so fun.......

Spring Break

Spring Break this year was very laid back.  Chase, Nanie and I went to the river and relaxed.
It was beautiful and the weather was perfect!!!

Then it was off to a wedding. Candace was the maid of honor and Blaine was the Grooms man.

Then we had Arthur's 80th birthday.  What fun seeing all of the family and celebrating his wonderful day!!!

Not long after Arthur's birthday, he got sick and went into the hospital.  He stayed for 2 weeks and was just worn out.  Prissy came home from the UK along with Tim.  He passed away on April 29.  He was such a wonderful PawPaw, dad and husband - we miss him dearly but he's having a blast in Heaven.

Christmas was wonderful!!!

We were all together in Tucson!  Loved having the family in one place - that doesn't happen often.
Kenzi and her new doll

Peyton and his Noah's Ark

Cute family picture

Gary is officially in Dallas for a while!  We are both glad for that...traveling for 2 years got old.  I'm starting my masters - it's a 10 month program....we shall see!

The beginning of the year has been a joy and has had it's downs...a dear friend lost her mom and the funeral was today.  Sure makes us cherish our moments we have with loved ones.  

Satterwhite Family Christmas

2013 will be a year of changes and a year of new beginnings and building on the beginnings of other years past.  I pray that God is glorified in everything we do!  Blessings to your family from ours!

Thanksgiving is upon us..........

"Do not get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time."
- Galatians 6:9

Greatful - Thankful hearts - we are so blessed. 
We will miss family this year
We will see family this year
We will give thanks for All
All that we have been blessed with
All that we have not been blessed with
what a wonderful time to be thankful

My list could go on and on and on....suffice to say that Gary and I are blessed beyond measure and there is no way to list all of our blessings and not leave one off.  We have a wonderful family, wonderful jobs, wonderful friends, wonderful church family, wonderful "things"...........

I watch my kiddos at school and listen to their stories of joy and heart ache.  It's hard to teach them to learn something from everything good and bad but I try.  We talk about our thanks - and reach out to show our thanks!  What a blessing to be able to work with all kinds of children and learn from them and teach them!

Be thankful this year for something.  Good and Bad - the good can bring bad and the bad can bring good and it's all in God's plan.

Thank you God for you blessings - we are thankful!
