Family Update

Lately I haven't posted much on here about what's been going on with the family. So why not today since it's snowing and cold out. Today is the first day of Bubba's Spring Break and we woke up to 3-4 inches of snow. We are all so over this cold weather and ready for some nice warm weather. A couple of weeks ago we got a new puppy that we named Lillie she is a beautiful little Daschund. Saturday we woke up to a broken furnace and that was no fun. Luckily it was decent outside and not to cold. The kids went to a Easter egg hunt in the park behind our house. The egg hunt had over 10,000 eggs and there was a great turn out for the event as well. The boys both have joined 4-H this year and they are both super excited about it. They are also playing baseball this year as well.
Lately the Lord has laid it upon my heart to find my birth dad. This has not been easy for me but I think I have an idea of his where abouts which is only about an hour from me. I have a lot of information to go on but it's just a matter of if he wants to be found or if people are willing to help me. This is such an emotional time for me right now and I am so thankful that Jake is such a supportive husband and my mom is also supporting me and helping me in this adventure.
So that is a quick summary of what's been going on around here...and feel free to keep me in your prayers on this journey of trying to reconnect with my Birth dad.

Real Kids Shades Review

With having a child that wears glasses already I am very worried about the health of my children's eyes. Every year we have to dilate Pumpkins eyes to have them checked and see how they are improving. When we do this I hate taking him outside because his poor eyes are so sensitive to the light. That is why I was so happy to get the chance to work with Real Kids Shades!

Popular Casinos in Macau

If you’re planning a holiday to Macau then you will probably want to try out some of their many casinos. Macau has become one of the most popular destinations for gambling. In fact it’s Cotai Strip has outperformed the Vegas Strip in recent years. With so many casinos to choose from, where does one start? Some of the more popular casinos in Macau include the Sands Macau and the Grand Lisboa.
The Sands is a bit older than the Grand Lisboa but both are popular choices for straightforward gambling without all of the frills The Grand Lisboa is well known for providing the best poker playing in Asia. At this casino, the biggest poker tournaments in Asia are held. With its reputation as a high profile poker casino, you can expect some of the world’s most skilled poker players to be found here. Another distinction of the Grand Lisboa is that it was the first Macau casino to bring in popular Western casino games such as Texas Hold ‘Em and craps.
These two casino games are also commonly found and played at online casinos. The Sands Macau also offers a significant amount of casino games with 740 table games and over 1,250 slot machines. Many visitors to Macau have never played craps but may wish to do so while on their  holiday. In fact, craps is one of the more exciting games found at online casinos such as
The game moves very fast so there’s no time to consider being bored. It is one of the easiest casino games to learn. All you must do is learn the basics of the game and what making a pass line bet entails. While there are 40 other bets that can be made in craps, many have terrible odds. Starting with the pass line bet is a safe way to begin playing the casino game of craps.

Hideaway Country Inn Review

Recently Jake and I went on a overnight getaway to the HideAway Country Inn in Bucyrus, OH. We were very much looking forward to a nice quiet evening away from the kids. Don't get me wrong, we love our kids, but we also love to be able to enjoy just each other as well. I think it's good for all couples to be able to find some time to enjoy each other.
