Just To Be Truthful...

I did promise on my Look Carefully post to show you me, on this, my 46th birthday, with no make-up, no curled hair, and just to throw in a little "GASP"...
I'm in my jammies.  Of course, I thought it was the hight of wisdom to surround myself with my young and sweet darlin's.






Poor Kalyn got lost in the crush...Keshawn doesn't look happy, and I keep counting and only come up with nine (I did count Kalyn's legs...), who is missing? And yes, my poor African babies need some lotion on those legs!!!!

Thank you all for remembering me on this special day...and for the blessings I never expected to find in the blog world...you and your friendship!!

  1. Shonni - those are precious photos! Seriously you are breathtaking and a natural beauty! Like I said yesterday from the inside out.

    I love that you are in pj's too. I live in mine - but hey I homeschool - no one really comes to visit and the kids and I like being comfy! I don't wear make-up either. I wear my hair curly because now that it is growing in - it just takes too long to fuss with it. My poor husband misses it straight so I do that for him a few days a week.

    I too never imagined to find such special people like you through blogging. I praise God for the way He has brought such special people into my life.

    I praise Him for the joy you so clearly felt today and how loved on you are!

    Blessings dear friend!

  31. Have you ever read the book The Gift of Dyslexia? It's really good. My husband has dyslexia and he's going to be going through a program called the Davis Dyslexia program that's supposed to help.
    "The Davis approach is not based on tutoring or drill, but actually resolves the root causes of problems experienced by individuals with language-based learning difficulties. The Davis program is explained in detail in the book, The Gift of Dyslexia." - http://www.dyslexia.com/program.htm
