The usual...


Cupcakes and crafting. I had one day where I got some energy back and so I 'celebrated' with cupcakes- just because- and made a couple of mini albums with some scraps. The little book you see here {and in full here} is a work in progress. I used some of the funky finds from the new Style Phyle collection that will be available at SIS each month by subscription. Mine is a work in progress because I plan to add a baby name to the front, possibly a date, and then fill the inside with photos and mementos. I made a little spot just inside the cover for a baby hospital band. The little job ticket holder will allow it to have some loose items tucked inside of it too- for safe keeping. I just can't do much more with it until for awhile. So for now it will sit on my desk and just have to look cute.
The rest of this week is crazy busy around here with doctor appointments {both Wyndham and me}, school and work, as well as Chip and I will be speaking at a dinner and still are working on our presentation. Then he leaves for Chicago for the golf show all weekend.
I plan to try to keep up with the kids, laundry, maybe some scrapping, and hopefully another batch of cupcakes.
Just because. =)

Any MRI results yet? I will be praying for good doctor visits for both you and Wyndham this week. Is Wyndham feeling better? Are you less tired? You guys are in my thoughts and prayers, always!

Much love from WV,

Hey Jody...I found your blog from another blog out in blog world and have been following you! I have enjoyed reading about your family and I appreciate you being so honest and yourself! You and your family have been through so much, yet you hold your head high! You are such an inspiration to so many people! I pray that God continues to bless you with strength and a fun loving mind!

As always Jody, you are an inspiration!! I think cupcakes just because is perfectly wonderful!! I love to bake to brighten my day (but since it is just my husband and I home now...that means way too many goodies!) Fun for your kiddos! A cupcake in their lunch or for an after school snack is certain to brighten their day and remind them how much mom loves them and makes the effort to tell them so!!! YOU ARE GOOD!
Good luck at the Dr appts....and speaking....
Love & blessings!

It's good to see that Wyndham has been feeling better. My Bible study group has been praying for her....

And, those cupcakes look delish....I could eat a whole plateful of them. :)

Hi Jody, found your blog while looking around, read the link about Teagan. After reading am crying and sorry for your loss. I leave with a reminder not to take your kids for granted and not to worry so much about the little things in life, thank you for that.

Ps. I laughed at your bit about the battles against housework and mess from kids, laundry and dishes.......lol.....U R NOT ALONE!!!
