I am embarking on a new adventure. I am trying to be a creative memories consultant now! I contacting a lady at our church who sells creative memories because I wanted to get back into scrap booking. I needed a hobby BAD. So, I thought that would be a productive one and one that would help us with all our pictures! Once I started talking to her and realized it would only cost about 10 dollars to get started I thought why the heck not! I would get 30% off of anything I wanted and I get 30% back on everything I sell. I am super excited. I am really hoping that I can make it work this time. Even if I only make enough to pay for my books and supplies that would be awesome. But, if I could make a little extra for fun money that would be so great! We could really use it, even just for date night!
So all that to say if anyone would like to order some creative memories items please just let me know! creativememories.com
I am having my first party this coming friday! I am a little nervous but super excited!

God has been working in Julietta lately and it's so neat to see! She has just started to come to grasp and understand some things, and she has also started to ask a lot of tough questions. Now is one of those many times that I wish dad were alive! I know he must be very happy to see his little princess starting to grow in Christ but I wish he were here to talk to her!
Anyway, when we were talking about Easter I was trying to explain that Jesus died for us and then on Easter he became alive again, and that is why we celebrate because Jesus is alive! Well, I think with a lot of kids the talk would end there. However, Julietta thought for a moment and goes does that mean that Papa is alive now too? Very hard to explain the concept of alive but not here to a 3 year old while also explaining that Jesus literally became alive on this earth again and that is why we celebrate!
Yesterday she came downstairs so excited and just said Guess what mom! "God painted our blood red and then he put it inside of us, then God put our skin on and he painted it tan. Then God put our hair on and he painted mine blonde, and then my tiny eye black, and then the other eye he painted brown with green. Then he painted my lips pink and my fingernails too! How cool is that?!" Seriously exactly like this!
Then yesterday afternoon she looks at me and said "Does God talk?" I said Yes he sure does. Then she said "But why can't I hear him!?" How do you answer that one!?
Anyway, I am loving watching this love of God and her learning happening. She is so sweet and has such a tender heart and spirit. We love her so much! I am praying that God uses her to do some big things for his kingdom!

Happy Easter all! It was a wonderful Easter for the Mackey family this year for several reasons. First off it's always wonderful to reflect on Christ and the resurrection. Second off this is the first year that we've really had a church family to celebrate with. And finally our family was complete because Randy got home the day before! Julietta woke up to an Easter basket filled with Jelly Beans, Hershey's kisses and eggs, sour worms, and a princess wand, princess crown, and a tinker bell hippity hop!
Julietta got to wear a "real" princess dress to church and she loved that! Ender manses did not really know any different. We all woke up early, and got to hang out and drink some coffee and then we went to church and then really just hung out. We did not do anything real big since Randy had just got home. I actually did not even cook an Easter dinner. Randy wanted some Sonic so that is what we did (I got the grilled chicken sandwich and a diet cherry limeade).
Here are some pictures from Easter.
Sweet Princess of ours!
Daddy surprised Julietta with the packet of the Disney Barbies!
Princess Julietta is SO happy to have her Prince back!
My sweet family is complete again!
