Our Family Loves Kubb

So a few weeks ago Ang asked me to make sure and post this.  With all going on she still has the blog on her brain.  But with all of my goings on I haven’t !  It’s been a crazy few weeks around here.  My oldest graduated from high school and she had surprise visitors from France to help her celebrate.  So as I promised I’m posting this.  Shhh , Don’t tell Ang I did it so late……As soon as I catch my breath, I will sit down and write a Beau update.  Thanks for your continued prayers.  God is so good.  heidi

Our Family is big gamers, I mean big! Every time we get together we always have some sort of game going on, usually cards.  But, we also love yard games.  For Mother’s Day all us kids went in on getting my mom a new game called Kubb!

Urgent Prayer, the Heart of a Mama, part 2

I’ve been waking up consistently in the middle of the night, usually in the 2 o’clock hour.  Beau is the first thing on my mind so I lay in bed and pray.  Then I pray a little more. A few times I’ve sent Ang the prayer I’ve been praying so she knows I’m here even though I’m an hour away.  Just knowing someone is taking over prayer while you sleep, maybe it’s a comfort.  It’s hard to know how to comfort even those you are very close to in times like these.

Prayers for Beau

imageMy sweet friend Angie and I started a blog just a few months ago.  It’s something we have talked about for some time and finally just stepped out there and did it.  Ang is awesome at crafting and I love cooking.  So it seemed and easy.  It seemed natural.  But today’s post isn’t easy and it isn’t natural.  It’s heart wrenching.  It’s not something I want to post.  But I need to…  I am writing so many will pray.  Friday afternoon Angie’s youngest son Beau, 10, was involved in an accident along with a friend Carter. Carter did suffer from some burns and he is at home resting but is in need of prayer.   Beau was burned over 60% of his body.  I told you this was going to be heart wrenching.  It’s so hard to even begin to tell you the heartache, grief, fear and emotional turmoil involved for the family, friends and our small town.  We have a wonderful friend who wrote the most beautiful post about that night when we all gathered around Ang in prayer.  She continued to say what we are called to do as Christians and how to handle tragedy and fear.  With her permission, I am reposting her beautifully written post as maybe it can bring you comfort too.  Thanks Lu, you are the kind of friend everyone wants by their side in life.

About Angie

Hi, I’m Angie or Angela or Ang, lol. One day one of my dearest friends said to me, “You’re one of my best friends and I don’t know what name you liked to be called?” I laughed and said I don’t know… I guess Ang. It really doesn’t matter to me, everyone calls me something different. If you ask my mom, it’s Angela, but my hubby usually says Ang unless he’s trying to get my attention then he yells ANGELA (I need some toilet paper, bwhahaha). I would say most people call me Angie.

This is from 2011 it’s time to take new family photos

I was born, raised and still live in the same town today and I love it! I’m a wife to my high school sweetheart, Ryan and mother to 3 amazing boys. We love our community and are so grateful to be raising our family here. I never imagined my kids getting big enough to be teenagers and now I have two. It’s so weird when your babies get bigger than you. My oldest is 17 and is 6’3”… 6’3” I still can’t believe it. My second son has just entered into the teen years and is 13. Every day he wakes up I think he looks like he grew over night. My baby is no longer a baby anymore as he just had his first double digit birthday “10” Yikes!

We have the cutest beagle named Harley we got her when my youngest was 2 1/2 years old, so my kiddos have grown up with her. We also have a tabby cat we got a couple years ago we named Tigra, which no one ever calls her that, we call her Kitty.

I love to craft and decorate and have wanted to blog for a long time so I could have an outlet for my creativity. It’s kind of scary and a little intimidating to start a blog when there is so many great, amazing talented blogs out there. So when my friend Heidi shared the same passions and ideas as me it just made sense that we should do it together.

The Thomasson Clan at the pumpkin patch

My family has a pumpkin patch/corn maze that I help with in the fall called Thomasson Family Farm. You can find me in the Country Store where we sell home decor and sweet treats. It’s the best job, I get to be a buyer and decorate. It’s so much fun!

Some fun facts about me are:
I love Jesus
Family and friends mean the world to me
Snow skiing is my favorite sport
Water skiing is a close second

Some of my hobbies are hiking, biking, reading, crafting, decorating.

I try and workout as much as I can just so I can stay in enough shape to ski all day long when I get the chance to go.

I don’t think I could go a whole day with out a latte.

I’m always working on a project that I can’t wait to share with the next poor victim who walks through my door.

So hopefully you enjoyed stopping by because I know I’m glad you did!
