I hope that you can hear this man!!

I hope that many of you can hear Dave Ramsey- if you are not local then please find him on itunes, go to his site and listen to his shows, or find him the other radio thing that I can't think of the name. But his site is www.daveramsey.com
Then on his front page click on the box that says Urgent 3 ways to fix Our Nation's Economy. But if you don't have time then just read below then go visit his site.
I have learned so much from him and Jason and I try really hard to follow his plan.
We all need to get smart with our own money situation and we need to take control -- we do have a voice with the people we elect and we have the right to vote or not.



We are at a crucial time in our country's financial history. We need everyone's help! Here are 3 steps you can take that will change our nation's future:

Pray for them to resist a spirit of FEAR and to embrace WISDOM. Even if you don't like them or agree with them, pray for them and tell them you are praying for them. There is a spirit over this problem that must be broken. Also, most of the media personalities are afraid as well and that is affecting their reporting. Pray for fear to be removed from them; they are making this worse.

Send The Common Sense Fix to your Representatives and Senators and tell them how you expect them to vote, and that if they put this nation in $700 billion of debt, that you will vote them out. It's their job to listen to us! (Whichever presidential candidate or political party that champions this plan from their leadership down will likely become the next president. That is because this plan fixes the crisis while going along with the wishes of the vast majority of Americans.)

Send a link to this page to everyone in your address book and tell them to urgently follow these 3 steps TODAY. The more people we have supporting this and contacting their elected leaders, the more likely we can turn our economy around!

Our Weekend Away!!


Here is Jason and I.......
We had a great weekend this past weekend!! We went up to Pigeon Forge without the kids and had a great time! We always miss the kids greatly when we are gone, and trust me this doesn't happen very often. We wasted our time and went to the TN Florida football game. I think I stopped watching at halftime. Normally I am the crazy lady screaming and hollering and giving high fives and all that, but this game I just held my head in my hands, but a very powerful moment was at halftime to hear over 100,000 people boooooo was sad. I hope that they were just booing the coach but I know the players heard it and so did Florida and I hope that they can turn this around but oh my they play Auburn this Saturday.
But anyway- we had a great time, I love going to Pigeon Forge just for the reason that it is close to home and kids can do stuff. But let me just plug this place- RiverStone Resort and Spa- you guys have to go. It is in Pigeon Forge at the Dollywood light. The condos are great and the spa is awesome!!! So there is my plug, go there and enjoy it. We were in a 3 bedroom and even if the kids were with us we would have had plenty of room!!!


Aren't they cute!!!!


My in-laws!!! Had to make them laugh.

The County Fair


The Coffee County Fair!!! We always go at least one night and we always have such a blast. Dayne is getting to the point that he loves all the rides and the animals- Daddy gets to do all the fun stuff and poor Tallan isn't big enough to ride, we put him on the carousel and he wouldn't even let Jason put him on the horse. He is too cute.
In the pics above Dayne got to go on everything- in the Teacups he is with our neighbors daughter Ashley- who I can safely say Dayne really likes Ashley and her sis Savannah!! We are so lucky to have them behind us. Tallan and PaPa fishing- I think PaPa had more fun :-)
We will have to wait again till next year to experience the Fair!!! Can't wait :-)

My Life Has Changed!

Well today my life has changed.....
To save you all the unnecessary need to hear all my woes. I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. YIPPEE
This is a diagnosis that I was really hoping was just a far off thought and that all my problems were just my gallbladder. Well I don't have a 'normal' gallbladder but I am glad I just didn't jump in an say take it out. I don't know if any of you reading this have celiac disease or know someone who does have it. But if you have any insight for me please send it my way. I am upset, depressed, laughing, I don't know what I am thinking actually. I was very selfish this evening and just said THIS IS NOT FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!! Many of you know me and know our family- we love food, we eat, we are not bashful, and I love to cook. So I guess everything changes today!!
When the doctor called me this morning I didn't know what to think, I did not believe that he had my pathology reports back to fast. But there were some key signs that he saw during my EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) yesterday that lead to him believing that I have this disease or allergy or whatever the right word is and I also have a hiatal hernia too. FUN!
So please pray for me- I need strength, I love food so until I grasp my head around this new diet and lifestyle I need some help!
So I am asking for help from all of you and all that you know to help lead me in the right direction.
Thanks to all an have a great night!!

The other 2 kiddos


I don't know if I have really ever posted pics of our other children. But here are a couple pics of Maddie and Murphy. They are both yellow labs and are the best things ever to our family despite my frustrations with them. Maddie is 8 years old now and she is the queen and if any of you have ever had a foot dog she is that dog! Murphy is the male and he is 4 now. He is a very good dog. Very protective and very timid. Please do not just sneak up on our home and all men beware!! But these two dogs help make our family and also help protect us. Tallan loves them!!! Dayne does better with Murphy than Maddie, like I said she is the queen and she does what she wants :-) But if you ever need extra facial licks or to have your feet warmed please stop on by!!

New Pics


Here are the boys from the other night. Here recently Tallan has taken a huge interest in the gator that Dayne has wanted nothing to do with. But thanks to little bro we are now on the gator everyday and they are having loads of fun. Tallan just hangs on and we have him so tightly strapped in~ But they are too cute together

Please keep scrolling down... I have added a lot!!!

Just a Few Questions.......

Here are a few questions to you all in this blog world~~~~

1. In the next 12 months, will you and your family, or anyone close to you going to be taking a vacation?????? Of any kind?

2. When you travel now, do you ever book your travel online?? Like Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz?

3. When you book online and pay for it, do you get 60% of the commission that that transaction has generated rebated back to you???

4. That is a personal vacation right? Not a business one? So you are not able to write that off on your income tax, right???


Answer those questions to yourself and if I can show you a way to book that travel the same trip, same time, same place- probably get it cheaper- and you get 60% of the commission generated on the trip rebated back to you WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED?????

Do any of you out there reading this need another form of income coming thru your house right now?? Do any of you or anyone that you know need a Plan B???? Any of you stay at home moms that want something to do and this is not a product :-) this is recess :-)
You don't have to leave a comment but I would love for you to or e-mail me and I will share this with you all!!
Thanks
(go on my sidebar by links are there for my business and my travel site)

Another Preschool Year Starts!

At home before we headed out the door for another preschool year. Dayne looks thrilled doesn't he--- he is not the most cooperative with pics at home. But I will say that he was so excited that we had no problems that morning and off we went and on time we were! That says a lot!!!










We got to preschool and he was so excited to get in to his class, but here is he is with his big boy backpack and lunch!


Dayne had a great first day and week! Another school year has begun and my little one is growing up so fast!!

This past weekend was Jason's Family Reunion- The Willis side...... Very large family and despite the heat a great turnout.
Here is Dayne and his cousin Blake playing in the dirt..... boys :-)


Here is Jason's cousin Joseph with Tallan- Tallan wasn't feeling the best, but the apple juice and the tractors got a smile out of him.
We don't get to Joseph and his wife Terri much, they live in the D.C. area- but it is always great to see everyone!!


Me and the boys!! Yes we are on a tractor! Where else do my boys want to be..
