Whats your favorite Easter Candy??

Im just curious what is everyone's favorite Easter candy...I seen on the local news today they was talking about how popular peeps are and I thought to myself ewwww I don't like those ...but realize that alot of people do...and that made me curious as to what the most popular Easter Candy really is......for me its

Im totally addicted to reeses of any kind...and I dont know what it is but when the holidays come around and they bring out the shaped reeses.....even though its probably totally in my mind only...they just seem to be a little tiny bit better then the original ones

I also need to get my little fix for one of these bad boys...they are sooooo super sweet that I usually cant have more then one or two for the Easter season...but for me it just wouldn't be the same if I didn't have one each year...some think they are gross.....but I dont...what is it you ask????

So I ask...what is YOUR favorite Easter candy??????

My Soldier turns 23 today

Kody..given his momma one of his bear hugz

My oldest..Kody turned 23 today....he's over in Iraq right now fulfilling his duties as a soldier...I am so very proud of him as he has turned out to be the kind of son everyone would want. He is truly beautiful inside and out. Though he never grew up wanting to be a soldier...never dreamed about it talked about it nothing...when he was a freshman in college he and a buddy decided to join the National Guard....was one of the hardest things for me to accept..and yet in a way I was so very proud of him. He thought being in college he would be safe from deployment....we found out the hard way thats not the case. He's been gone since November and I miss him so very much..and today as I spend the day without him physically with me....I hold him in my heart and I realize that I couldnt be any more proud of him then I am right now...he may not be doing what he wanted to be doing but hes doing it and he's making the best of it....and he reminds me every day that he has grown up and he is going to be ok.

Today as I sat at my computer working on business stuff I heard the most wonderful sound was the sound of my skype going off with my son on the other end calling me!!!! Its amazing how an hour and 39 minutes can go by so fast!!! I miss him so much...I cant help but sit there and watch him on my computer screen soaking up every moment...watching him am so thankful for this technology I truly have no idea how people survived when their soldiers left them years ago....because even though this is only the second time I have been able to see him on the camera since hes been was truly the best 99 minutes of my day!!

My Son My Soldier My Hero

Power in Prayers


As most of you know my oldest son Kody is over in Iraq.....he has been on deployment since November so the fact Im still able to function is pretty I'm so super close to him and being soooooo far away from him for so long...well lets just say it hasn't been easy!!! Then a few weeks ago he got seafood poisoning from eating scallops on his day off. He got so sick he ended up at the medics hooked to an IV ...the results of this food poisoning lasted for 2 weeks....he continued getting sick even one time having to get a shot to get him to stop throwing up....needless to say this ordeal only put me over the edge...I felt like I couldn't concentrate on anything other then what was possibly going on over there. Kody and I have skype and though we don't get to video on it much...actually its only been one time since he's been there... we are able to type to each other on a daily basis....and he calls me now and then.....but while he was sick I went days not hearing anything...and therefor not knowing anything. It truly was almost more then I could I turned to the one thing I knew could make this all better....I started asking everyone to please pray for him.....I had so many prayers going up for Kody that the very next day when I talked to him he said mom, I felt so rejuvenated when I woke up today.....and then I knew...all of our prayers had been answered. There is so much power in prayers!!!! I thank God for listening and laying his hands on my son that was so sick....and making him feel brand new again!!!

Heres a few pictures of him over there that Id like to share with everyone!!!
