Its a Coach purse whatever that means. I dont know brands at all. But he was excited about it:) I love it. Id show you a pic but to my sadness my camera (which is new) has died out and Im going to go exchange it asap that mean tomorrow:) Shawn gave me a little cluch purse for Christmas and I loved it so he decided to give me the whole purse for my birthday! Then I went off to church and had a great time. The church as a whole is going to be doing the Daniel Fast for the month of Janurary.

My friends, I come to you again this year with the sad news that my cousin past away on Christmas day. We are so totally unprepared for this death. She fell and bumped her head and passed away the same day. I dont have a pic of her or I would put it up for you to her. She was a one of a kind lady. I loved her very much. She will be missed. Her name was Divida. SHe babysit me and my sisters and brother when we were little.
My Friends, I want to tell you how thankful I am to have such sweet friends as you all are. With my sister passing last week you have all sent your prayers. Thank you! Well here is my tree this year. I didnt get very many ornaments up on it this year. My daughter Abbea came over and put it up for me. She is sweet that way! It still turned out cute , dont you think?
The cute little sachet is from eBay. Isnt it cute and it smells awesome. I have no idea what the smell is tho:) I bid a silly amount on this item and it came with a thimble and two small scissors. I think I got it all for less that 10 dollars thats including S&H. Its needlepoint and just so sweet. I think one of the things Im going to try and do next year is start (again)to shop at thrift stores. I miss the great deals I get on pretty things. Im trying to decorate my house again. When I moved in this house over 6 years ago I was in the middle of a dark point in my mind. I feel like God has lifted it and now I can see the pretty things again. I want to make my house a home again with pretty roses and angels and lots of crocheted lace:) Yipee here I go ashopping! Ok have a very blessed CHRISTmas and remember why we celebrate in the first place!
Friends, I know that you all have been praying for my sister Jerri. She went to be with the Heavenly Father on Wednesday Dec. 12 at 1:30pm in her sleep. She went very quietly and peacefully. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Jenny and her family that she leaves behind. We thank you all for your prayers. Remmeber to hug your loved ones this year in memory of Jerri.
My friends, Ive come to you today so you may see my sister Jerri and maybe you could say a prayer for her. She is now in the hospital and she is suffering. I would very much like you to pray that God will release the suffering and she could have peace. I know this is not the time to bother you all with this sad news but I know Jesus would love to hear from you at this time of the year not that He wouldnt love to hear from you any other time :) Please stop and say a small prayer for Jerri Esposito she is 50 this year and she has a very sweet little girl named Jenny. I love you all for your prayers and I pray that God will bless you and yours this time of the year and always. Im posting a pic of my sister that was taken a few weeks ago actually on Thanksgiving day this year.
