Just a Bloggin'

I hope everyone had just of a wonderful christmas as I did. Every year just gets better and better. One reason is because almost 6 years ago my aunt passed away. She was the glue that held our family together. The first couple of years was hard nobody really was in the spirit to get together and each year it was harder and harder to get people in good moods for dinners. Then my grandmother passed away. It then became a challenge. People stopped coming to dinners and slowly I watched my family pull away from on another. About two years ago my mom started being the one responsible for the food and callin everyone. It got better but this year it just seemed to be like old times again. Laughter filled the rooms and you could tell everyone was so happy to see one another.It really made this christmas so much fun and memorable. Everyone have a fun and safe new years!

To Our Little Angel in Heaven

For those who knew her Presley Slatton Passed away this afternoon. My heart is just broken. I have cried until I just cant cry anymore. When I first found out I was devestated, angry, hurt, confused. She was only 12 years old. She didn't even have a chance to live. We loved her so much. I know that she is in a better place and that God does things for a reason. He had a bigger plan for her and he has definitely gained him one great little angel. I will always remember little presley riding her bike up and down the street with my little brother. She was so full of life! She never had a dull moment. Aubrey and I awhile back to her, my brother, and her brother tucker to see spiderman. She just didnt know what to think she was just so happy. I cant believe she is gone. We talked to the grandparents and they said , if you could have seen her when she passed you would have more peace..she was so beautiful and her skin was the prettiest color, and her hair was silky and beautiful as ever. She looked like the prettiest angel laying there. It was like God was telling us that she is with him now and that she is not hurting any more. I know that she is better off than we are but I am still at the selfish stage where I want her here. I just want to say Presley you have really touched my heart and Im so proud to of known the sweet little girl that you was and I will always have a special place for you in my heart for I know you are riding your little bike in the clouds now and you have God by your side who will take care of you and when the sun is shining we will know your smiling down on us. We love you presley! Your our little angel

please keep her family and her brother tucker in your prayers tonight. It is hard on everyone expecially with it being so close to christmas

Say a Prayer

Little mIss Presley Slatton was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 11. She is now 12 years old and still fighting. Her cancer recently went into remition and she got to come home for a short while. They noticed she was not feeling well and that she had a fungus growing in her nose. They took her back to the doctor and where she had had so much radiation for her cancer it set up infection. Infection that was so severe it was producing a fungus already. Her infection was already to her spine and in her blood stream. They have gave her a blood tranfusioin and are now giving her blood with alot of platelets. The doctors say all thats left for her is in God's hands now. My family are real close to these people and love them so much. God can perform miracles! Please be praying for presley to recover. Keep her and her family in your prayers! Thank you and God bless

Something to think about

Something to think about
"Any fool can criticize,condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.""People can be more forgiving than you can imagine. But you have to forgive yourself, let go of what is bitter and move on."( Powerful one) "And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God and Christ has also forgiven you."I Posted this for a number of reasons. For one, I have noticed here lately alot of people fighting with one another, at work people yelling at people, people talking very badly about one another, and all this makes me sad. For one, we are not promised another day and each day wasted is a day we will NEVER get back. I have in the past couple months have been trying to be the best person I can be. Yes, I am guilty of fighting with others and talking about people, but I have learned something. It just makes me feel worse as a person, and the more I feel badly about someone the more worn out I am, the more negative I am, the more hateful I am. All this is no good because every minute angry and upset I am another minute of happiness I have lost. I have had my fare share of arguements and I am the worlds worst about worrying if someone is talking about me or mad at me, but I have come to realize its okay if they are. I am who I am and I try to be a good person and think in the right state of mind and their feelings I cant change and that is something they will have to deal with on their own. Im gonna do the things that makes me happy, live the life I wanna live, and just be happy with life. I wanna let go of grudges I have on people, I want to make amends and have for once, peace. I have prayed and prayed and prayed for the lord to guide me in the right direction and to tell me what I need to do in my life to change for the better. He has told me, because in my heart, I feel differently now. My outlook on things have changed. I'm a wife to a wonderful husbad, a mommy to 4 dogs, and one day I will be a mother of a child whom I will love with every bit of my heart. That is what life is all about. Love and happiness. We shouldn't let petty stuff bother us. We should be thankful for our family and loved ones and think about the ones who dont have a family and dont have parents to tuck them into bed at night. I pray for those people because my heart aches for them. I catch myself thinking I wish my stupid house would sell ,I hate it, I want to build our dream house ,I want to be successful in life, and Im so tired of driving 30 min to work, but then I sit back and I look and I think. There are kids out there who live on the streets. Eat from the garbage, and are dying from an illnesses because they have no medicine. Whenever we are eating our turkey and dressing, and this christmas opening gifts under a tree, and chilling my the fireplace, do you ever sit and think about the kids or people who dont have a house to sleep under, or a big fancy meal for them to eat, do you ever stop and think about the people who are stuckout in the cold with no warmth, or even a family to spend christmas with and to spend time with . There are people out there who are so alone in this world, and here we sit back with our selfish selves and complain because things arent going the way you want them. Your house aint big enough, you dont drive the fanciest cars, or wear the nicest clothes, or even fight over who makes what. Those things seem so small to the bigger picture that I pointed out. Be thankful for what God has blessed you with. It might not be exactly what you wanted but God has a plan for everyone and if you let the small things blind you maybe God does things to open your eyes. I know he has for me. I hope everyone has a great thanksgiving, and I Love each and everyone that reads my blog. God bless you guys! Tonight in your prayers..say a little extra prayer for somebody, even if you dont know them:)

My Sweet Sweet Card from my Super Sweet Husband























This morning I woke up with a gift beside me. He wasn't supposed to get me anything else he had already bought me a douney and bourke purse for our anni. I just loved my card he got me because it describes us TO THE TEE!!! I had to share it with you guys so here it is:
It's our Anniversary!
When one of us thinks it's too warm, the other may be chilly ..( we always fight over the thermostat lol)

One likes a wacky tv show the other thinks is silly

One loves the smell of flowers that just makes the other sneeze

When one wants spicy mexican the other wants chinese

A married couple's bound to have some differences it's true

but don't call me the BETTER HALF 'cause I'll just say," Nope-that's you!"

Aubrey also wrote a sweet little message on the inside for me:) it said:

We have had our differences and arguements, but we always pull though any complications. It's been a great year of marriage, and I can only hope our next years can be just as great. Let's pray for a long happy marriage and make this the best marriage possible Love, Aub

I about cried lol ...I LOVED LOVED my card. its so us. well everyone have a great week We are leaving for gatlinburg!!

To My husband- Today We Celebrate US











On this day, November 17th, we get to celebrate "US". We made it baby! One year today our whole lives changed. It was no longer about ourselves, it was about each other. I love you more than words can describe. You have made me the happiest wife and I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful husband as you are to me. It is an indescribable feeling to have when you have someone who truly loves you, and provides for you, and takes care of you, and comes home everyday to You and only YOU. I know I may not say it often but Im so thankful to have you in my life. We have been together 5 years and now married one:) I am proud to call you my husband and I cant wait to see what the future holds for us. ..I love you more than ALL the jelly beans in the world( and yes even the tutti frutti:) Below is a poem I wrote for you:)

For you on our anniversary

Dear Husband,

I never asked for a blessing like you...
Like I've spoken to God, and he granted my wishes true...
I asked for a person ,to love and to hold....
To be loyal and faithful, not angry and cold....
God placed you on Earth, as I quested to find...
The one who would be there, so sweet and so kind....
In my wildest dreams I would have denied....
That something so perfect could at all be supplied....
You are my everything that I have always wanted and more...
You're my husband and I love you, today, and forever more....
The day I said "I do", I meant it with all my heart...
My love for you will only grow stronger, and will never fall apart.
I will love you till the end of time, yes this is true...
We were truly meant for one another, and I cant wait to grow old with you.

Your Wife,
Kristin

For My Husband

My dear husband,

Its 23 days til our one year anniversary. One year from the day we combined our lives together as one. One year from the day our hearts was joined as one. One Year from the day we stood before God and confessed our love for one another. I am so thankful to have a husband as dear, understanding, and to be just as much in love with you as I was five years ago when we met. I love you . respect you, honor you, and cherish you till the day that God brings us home. Your my husband, my friend and companion, my lover, my counselor at times:), my shoulder to cry on, a helping hand when I need one, the person I run to when I'm scared, mad, happy, sad. Your everything to me. Life definitely would not be the same without you. You have my heart and you always will. "Love you more than all the jelly beans in the world"and much much more. To us, this is for a long life together full of miracles and happiness, yes this is to us.
Forever Yours,
Kristin

Our Journey

If you know us then you know we are a one of kind couple. We have the same goals, dreams, and aspirations. We are not like most couples at all. Most people comment about how we got married young. Saying, " they are too young for marriage, they do not know the meaning of marriage." here is my answer to that: Why not be married? We are two people who have found love with one another. Love has no age limit. Aubrey and I are two people who have dreamed of falling in love, settling down, and starting a family and a life of our own. Yes, most people our age are out partying their lives away, and being young. Let me say this. There isn't anything that I could do or did before we were married, that I can't do now.Aubrey is a different kind of guy. He loves me and wants what is best for me. he admires me, respects me, and most importantly, he supports me. I have been in college for going on three years now, and anytime I had doubts about myself, he would always do his best to lift me up, and encourage me, and he always let me know that he believed in me. To have someone tell me that they believed in me made me realize that I believed in myself. At our wedding day, my preacher who married us wanted to have a chat with us. he pulled us off to the side and he asked this: Aubrey and Kristin, you are two people that I have watched the past five years grow so much in love with one another. You can tell you two are truely in love by just the way you are with one another. You compliment each other. He turned and looked at aubrey and said," I want to start your ceremony with thoughts that you two have about one another. He said," Aubrey, what makes you love kristin so much that she is the only one for you?" OKay if you know aubrey, he is very shy and doesn't show his emotions alot so I was thinking haha this should be good. He turned to Brother Rex and said, because she encourages me. She makes me want to be a better person. She makes me think about my future, and makes me excited about it! I never knew how deep of love you could have for someone until I met her. okay by this time I was in tears! I couldn't believe what he had just said. I mean I knew he loved me but to hear the impact I made on him and how he really felt about me just is a feeling that I can't hardly find words to describe. Our journey started Feburary 2004. I had seen him before at cheerleading competitions with a old girlfriend of his. I always thought he was very handsome. Its crazy how I never knew that one day he would be my husband! anyways, I had a friend who was a friend of his. Your going to find this story quite amusing. My friend had talked about him, going on about how cute he was and this and that. So I told her let me add him to msn messenger and Ill try to get you two on a date.lol. So she gave me his address and I added him . he got on and I talked to him for days on the internet.We exchanged numbers but would only text because we was both so shy. We had never met in person. I tried to get them on a date but then she changed her mind and said I think he is too old for me lol So I was like well hey if you don't want him Ill go for him! So we talked for a good two week, and then a girl named tansey talbert passed away. I had went to school with her, and little did I know she was aubrey's cousin. So I went to the funeral and guess who I ran into for the first time, yeah aubrey. He didn't know who I was because he had never seen me in person. So I got up the nerve to go up to him and very nervously I said," hey, I am kristin" and he said hey! we kind of talked a minute and then he said," well I have to go in the other room" and walked off. i was liek great he dont like me lol so that night when I got home I got on the computer. He instantly Im and said I thought you would follow me into the other room. I was like I didn't know you wanted me to I thought you was just trying to get away from me lol he said no I seen my sister and mom coming up and was afraid they would embarrass me lol! I was shew lol he said you are very pretty and I said thank you you are very cute lol So with him being so shy, I said so would you like to hang out sometime or go catch a movie? He said instantly yeah sure how about this friday? and thats how our journey began and we have been together ever since. Its funny how I remember every detail of our first "real" conversation about one another. I also remember the first time we said I love You. (Mind you I was 15 when I met him and he was 19.)We had went bowling with some friends and it was about the end of the night when he was about to take me home. he wanted to take a look at my phone. I instantly was like no! lol How many of you when you was younger would put I love so and so all over your stuff. Well I ahd Kristin Loves Aubrey as my display banner on my phone. I was so worried I would scare him off if he seen it. He asked me about three or more times to see it and I finally said Why should I let you see my phone and he whispered in my ear and says" because you love me" and I just looked at him and smiled and handed over my phone and when he seen it he looked at me with the biggest smile and said I love you too.:) he makes me smile just talking about it. It seems so long ago. Then I look at how far we have come. We are married now! Life is just full of surprises! WellI guess Ill quit for my first post its long enough:)

love, Mrs. Green
