Mamaw Sells Seashells by the Sea

yIKEs ***Before my post, I just HAVE to say that my prayers and thoughts are with those in Galveston and all of the other places being smashed by Hurricane Ike. I just can't imagine. I love Galveston so much! Many prayers...especially for my Kimberly Mo & Chloe Bo in Houston and the Babins in Louisana!!!*** yIKEs

MaMaw, my dear mother-in-law, gave Hadlee and Walker this huge sea shell! Ever since we went to the beach (how appropriate that this is my post today?!?), Hadlee has loved to listen to the ocean in sea shells (yes, I taught her that because I grew up believing this was TRUE! Walker is convinced now, too!)...

Haddie is so into this and has to listen everyday and then she says, "I hearrrrd it."

Then of course mommy has to hear it, too...

And Bubba, well, you know Bubba! It's always something with him. This particular day he was holding it up to his ear and mouth saying "My cell phone is broken. Can you hear me?!?"...

And while I'm on the subject of my mother-in-law...let me just give a BIG HUGE belated birthday shout out to her!!! Of course I didn't forget her birthday...we celebrated...but I didn't give her the proper LOVE she deserves on my blog!!!
My mother-in-law is the BEST!!! Since day one, she has loved me like her own! She will make, paint or fix anything I ask of her!!! She'll keep the kids at a moment's notice (even at my house!) and she ADORES them! of all, she takes MY side in 'tifs with Troy!!! (HA!)

Happy Belated Birthday, Linda! I love you dearly!!!
I couldn't ask for a more wonderful mother-in-law or grandma to my children!!!

I am not surprised one teeny bit that your MIL loves you like her own...who wouldn't love YOU!!!!

Hubby & I were watching the news tonight and I said "My blogger buddy, Mindy, lives in Texas. I hope they are okay." Then I checked my blog and saw your comment. I'm so glad you guys are safe and sound. Are you pretty far from where all the bad weather is? We are getting a lot of rain so I can imagine that you must be too. Stay warm and dry and most of all SAFE!

Mindy! I have been thinking about you and your family all day! I will keep you in my prayers as the state of TX is hit by this huge hurricane! God Bless you, your family, and all of your friends and loved ones!! We are sending hugs from out here in CA!

And I loved that post on your MIL, so sweet! What a lucky woman you are (:

Have a great, safe and dry weekend!

We are praying for you and your family and for all those in TX and surrounding areas! What a sweet sweet story about your Mother-In-Law!! You are very blessed that Troy's mother is so loving and involved with you and your grandchildren! Happy belated Bday MaMaw.....we love being able to share a little part of your Mindy's life. Keep listening to the ocean through the shell!

I've been thinking of you all so much and praying for you!

I grew up believing that was the ocean you'd hear in shells too. Don't you just love their innocence?!

Stay Safe.. Much love from all of us here in CA!
