This is a picture of Paisley and my very favorite office staffer Nikki, who works for my biggest dermatology office. Paisley has known Nikki since she was born, and Paisley loves her! Sometimes on Fridays Paisley goes with me to offices to make calls. She loves Nikki because she always gives her candy.

So when she got to name her "Elf On A Shelf", of course she picked Nikki!
I think this is so is crazy how their little minds work.

Nikki rang our doorbell on Wednesday, and brought M&M's, Go Fishing, balloons, and a note.

Paisley was SO excited. What are your Elf On A Shelf names?


We had a fantastic Thanksgiving...We spent the day with Stephen's family in Lebanon, Kentucky. We went up and visited for the day, due to the fact that we are NEVER home as a family of four, and I wanted to have a jump start on decorating. Which didn't really happen. But I did start decorating. That counts, right?

Here is one of me and my sweet Paisley...

Here is Paisley and Grammy....

Paisley, Grammy, and Griffin looking scared!

Stephen and his dad chowing down...

Paisley took this picture. She is into photography these days. HA!

Aunt Mitzi and Uncle Terry...and Mama Reynolds...

My sweet boy in his first Christmas apparel...don't worry...there is PLENTY more!! Ha!

My boys watchin' football!

I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving!

-I am thankful for salavation that I am definitely not worthy of...

-I am thankful for my precious husband that I love very much. He works many long hours, travels and flies numerous times a week, and never complains.

I know he does it all so we can give our children a great life...

-I am thankful for 2 healthy children that are hardly ever sick. But when they are, I can drive them to the doctor, take them right in, and have medicine almost instantly. I am reminded of all those children in Honduras who have nothing, and will walk 6-8 miles to see a physician. In the rain.

-I am thankful for loving parents, who are somewhat normal (ha) and after 39 years are still married and kiss each other.

-I am thankful for selfless in-laws who treat me like their own daughter. And who treat my children like their own. If it was not for them, I would not be able to work. They allow me to travel and not worry about my babies.

-Speaking of jobs, this year I am especially thankful for a job. After going through layoffs twice, I feel unworthy and very grateful.

-I am also thankful for a church family that always listens, prays, calls, writes, and texts words of encouragement throughout the week.

-I am thankful that we live in a country where we are allowed to worship freely.

-I am thankful for my precious sister and all she means to me.

-I am thankful for Facebook friends, blogger friends, and my girlfriends....too many to list, but each one possess such wonderful qualities.

-And now for the trivial things...

Jonas, my hairdresser, who always makes me feel good about myself.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

a Hot Bubble Bath with Philosophy

Coke Zero


New Clothes and Purses

Chandelier Earrings

Sweet Notes from my husband

Boggle Application on the Ipad

and a good ole' manicure!

Love you all and Thanks for reading Goode Time Girls!

Happy Thanksgiving...

"Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.

Give thanks to Him, bless His name.

For the Lord is good, His loving kindness is everlasting and He is faithful to all generations." -Psalms 100 4:5

Happy Thanksgiving!

-I LOVE my new stroller. I wasn't digging the BLUE, but I snagged this for a BARGAIN. As in, $250 off!! For that much, I can handle the color. And Griffin loves it. He loves being able to sit next to Paisley and look out.

-My house is starting to feel cluttered. This is when I go around the house with a garbage bag and start throwing away. The kids and dogs run and hide, they are afraid they might be next.
I am one of those people who cannot even watch Hoarders. It makes me itch and break out in hives.

-I booked our Disney trip today. YAY! We originally planned for October, but that did not work with my company layoffs and Stephen's job.

-I am already trying to find Christmas cards. This proves to be a daunting task. And an expensive one, especially when you send out 150+ cards.

-So excited about being home this week, not traveling, cooking, decorating, watching movies, and Black Friday shopping. I am one of those crazy people that will knock you DOWN for that last cashmere sweater or Nutcracker at Kohl's. I make Stephen go, too. He drives my getaway van. But don't worry, I am not wearing a fanny pack.

-Can't wait to see Tangled and Love and Other Drugs this week. LAOD is about the pharmaceutical industry and the launch of Viagra. I hope it doesn't make our industry look too bad. But Jake Gyllenhal. HAWT. Can't wait to see him on the big screen in his black Ray-Bans. Wowzers.

-I feel sorry for Santa Claus. December isn't even here and I am already tired. I can't imagine how tired he must be...
