I saw this book at Costco, read the back of the book and I instantly wanted to read it! Since I have a Kindle I didn't buy it at Costco and as soon as I got hone I grabbed my kindle and ordered it! (It was even about $2.00 cheaper for the kindle version!) I started reading it and it literally took me two days to read! And I am a slow reader! I think it took me about two months to read "The Help"
I true story of a little boy's journey to heaven and back! The most amazing thing is that everything that he stated his dad backed up in Scripture! For a person like me that dealt anxiety for a couple years over death it truly brought me a peace about dying that it's not the most horrible thing!
Grab your tissues if you decide to read this book! I was at the car dealership getting my oil changed and I was almost hyperventilating over this book. This man next to me was reading as well, he kept looking up at me wondering if I was okay or if he should even ask! I bet he was glad when I left!
A day after I finished reading the book the little boy that the story was about was featured on The Today Show here is the link if you would like to watch It!
If you decide to read it I would love to hear what you think of it!

|Presley playing on the rocks and in the stream|
|In the School house learning how pioneer children learned at school|
|Waiting to go into one of the log homes|
|The kids had fun chasing the ducks that were in the pond|
|Looks like Presley is having a stand off with this pig! He definitely didn't was to be touched|
|Jumping in the hay the best part of the day!|
Today Presley had a field trip to Pioneer Farms! Just like it sounds it is a old farmstead from the late 1800's. The kids were able to see how the pioneers lived. How they made their food, where they went to school, mode of transportation and their animals! Presley favorite part was probably jumping in the haystack and chasing the pig!
I am so thankful today for modern technology and flushing toilets! I really don't think I could have made it back then!!!!! Pat took the day off so he could go on the field trip with us! Presley was very happy Dad was with us! Overall it was a great day!

Before Walls! Sorry the pictures aren't very good I have a super zoom Len's on my camera right now!
First project up is re-modeling our downstairs bathroom/laundry room! What was here before and now? We had stripped wall paper above the wainscoting. I loved the wall paper but it seemed to be lifting so it was time to remove it! I started doing this about 6 months ago! I started the project before Pat came home from work! He was surprised when he came home! And then I let it sit because of lack of motivation! That's bad! So know I am at it again in full vegance and it's going to get done!!!!
So what do we plan to do? We have started painting an eggshell white. We will be painting the wainscoting Black. I've purchased a new mirror (a medicine cabinet was there before) we have also purchased a new light fixture since we are switching everything over to brushed silver and new hardware! So exciting. Hoping that the bathroom will maybe be done by next week!
The laundry room will be repainted as well. I am taking the shelving down that's above the washer and dryer and adding new black wood shelving and adding baskets for laundry products. I am going to see if my friend will add vinyl to one of the wall with a laundry "saying" and we will be adding a black chandelier. I will post pictures when we are finished so stay tuned!
Next up the flooring!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Wow, what a busy day! First of all I've been sick all week and barely have had a voice. I finally went to the doctor today and was able to get antibiotics. WOOHOO! I usually work in Ethan's class every Thursday but since I didn't know if I had a sinus infection or strep I thought I better not work in there!:( Kind of sad sounds like he had a great day at school. And Leprechaun's came and destroyed his class!
After getting everyone off to school and me running a few more errands. I came home and finished these adorable cupcakes! You can find directions of how to make them on my other blog http://beckscreations.blogspot.com/2011/03/over-rainbow-cupcakes.html
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
