{The Trip}

I want to give you all a little slice of my trip! It was so wonderful. . . I loved spending time with my family.
I am just blessed.  Truly blessed.  I am preparing for Easter this week, so I don't have much time to peck.  I am going to have Easter dinner here at the house and I will be working on making sure I have the church nursery covered.
Soooo, enjoy my snapshots without all the wordiness of me (:
Love, Tonia

{We're back!}

Hello! We are back. . .and we had a wonderful time! I haven't had time to download any pics, and I have hit the ground running. Talk Soon!

We are beach bound.
Talk when I return!
You can follow me on Instagram.
I am Tonia Hobbs over there too!

{Its all about the details.}

I have a million and one things I could blog about today BUT this was a super 
 fun learning project for Sis, so I wanted to share.  Mrs. McDaniel has been teaching the kids about the Iditarod races.  Me? I never heard of such! I knew people raced "dog sleds" but never knew the proper name and such amazing details!
I think that is one of the most fun things about having a girl! They are full of details! Boys, not so much!
Lily tells me about every second of her day! AND I have loved learning from her!
She is such a great little teacher! 
The older the kids get I see less and less "notes".  So I had to trust that I was doing the right thing by carrying a snow sled into the school.  Sure enough, others started trickling in with theirs. . . whew! Relief.
They have been tracking the progress of the racers, and made their own race!
Complete with "dog treats" for their "team" (which were kids). Love it!
In addtion to all the dog sled fun, she was doing a project about her own pizza business.
Cute! Cute!
Its all about the details.

I hated not to blog yesterday! I had a chance but The Mr. was on the computer doing school work. 
I decided it might not be the best time to ask if I can do a post!
He might've come UNGLUED!
Can I just say going back to school is a real challenge! I am sure I have shared that before
but honestly I don't see how he is working full time, going to school full time, having any kind of life, and not killing us. He's doing great! 
I am study up a storm for my little (well, it hasn't been so little! Yay!) Bible Study! I love it! 
I love all the ladies! Each week I am asking them to share their verse through social media.  It
has been fun and encouraging! I have so enjoyed seeing them!  I nestled mine in the kitchen this week.
Having Gods Word front and center does help! 
I shared many of these photos on Instagram, but I just had to add some words.
The officers funeral Saturday was so sad.  
(But they were some of the most joyful people I have ever met!)
Most days I really don't think about being apart of the Law Enforcement Community.
This day was a little bit of a reality check for me. . .It made my bones hurt. 
My heart was swollen with pride. . . .
These men and women truly love each other regardless of any indifference.
They are family. 
I pray for Brad, but I don't worry so much.
 (mostly the calls that come in the night are the most bothersome to me)
 Every morning I hear him pull the Velcro on that vest. . . and I trust the Lord with him. 
 The Mr. knows what hes doing, and I find comfort in that. 
 I could gush and gush about him. . . but I will spare you.  
(I am not so much a public gusher)
You can read more about sweet Terry here. He was very much loved.
 I spent much of my yesterday shopping for Beach Picture Clothes. 
After going to
We are wearing $6 t shirts. . . mixed with some stripes and linen.
Let me just say. . . shopping ain't my thing.
Especially when trying to 1/2 way coordinate 5 people.
 I came across this tweet and had to "favorite" and "retweet" and share here!
This is so true!
This is W.W.J.D.
I will talk more soon!
I must share about the IDITAROD!
Ever heard of it??!!??

{Black Dress Day.}

Tomorrow I will attend an officers funeral. 
I didn't have the privilege of knowing him, but The Mr. did.
I am a tad nervous, this is the first time I have ever been to a LE funeral.
I feel full of sorrow for all who knew and loved him.

{Disaster Relief}

 Well, its Thursday and this is what it has come to after a week of insane busy.
My house is a danger zone. 
I do believe The Mr. fears for his life at this point.
 The kids seem rather unaffected.
Searching for socks and underwear has been their biggest challenge.
I have lit a candle to ease the pain of the situation.

Now let the cleaning begin, or should I say. . . let the disaster relief efforts begin.

{God is so good.}

I am meditating on this verse today.
The Lord is my Rock and my Redeemer!

{Tonight's the night 8:30 PM!}

Tonight's the night.  I will lead my very first Bible Study. 
 I am beyond excited to see God work in my life and others!

 Lets talk about some Grace for the Unglued, shall we?
I will leave the "Nightlight" on for you.

If you are close. . .come!
If not. . . pray!
and I will share here too!

{Squeaks and Chirps}

 Hello Spring Chicks! The first day of March!! Can I get an Amen!!!! Hallelujah!! 
I am ready for the green grass, yellow daffodils, and bugs!
I am decorating for Easter today. . . and cleaning! I have kept the road HOT this week,
which is odd, considering my car was in the shop Mon-Thurs. 
My car took an expensive vacation away from me . . . squeaks & chirps are apparently pricey to fix.
Speaking of "squeaks and chirps" look at these dolls!
I spotted these sweet treats at the Cracker Barrel!
A Chocolate Chick. I adore.
