About Me

My photo
Greenville, North Carolina, United States
Hello, My name is Tracey. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and mother of three. I have taken photos of my children and family members for years. My love for photography became a passion when I received my first 35mm SLR from my wonderful husband for my 1st Mothers Day. Nothing captures a moment in time like a photograph. It is my desire to capture images that reflect life's moments as you remember it.

Busy Week-end Update

Sorry, I have been "blogless" the last couple of days. I have been really busy this past week-end. So here is what I have been up to the last couple of days!
Thursday night, the boys addressed their Valentine's cards for their classmates. It was too cute watching them decide which card to give to who. I remember that being such a big decision when I was kid. They had great time too!


Thomas concentrating on getting it right.

Tyler was looking so serious! LOL

On Friday, Frank and Tanner surprised me at work took me out to lunch. Tanner gave me some flowers and politely told me that HE picked them out but DADDY paid for them! He was so proud to give them to me. It was a very nice surprise - the flowers were a bonus!



The wedding plans are starting to come together now. Me and Stevie (bride to be) spent the afternoon printing her invitations and RSVP cards. We assembled them and now they are ready to be stuffed into envelopes and mailed. They turned out great didn't they? We had a great time together.



I have also been tieing bows for our Relay for Life team. I have tied bows for one of fund raisers for 6 years in a row now. This is such a great fund raiser. The ribbon costs next to nothing and we "sell" each of them for $ 10.00 each. People proudly display them on their cubicles, and mail boxes. For more information about Relay for Life following this link. http://www.relayforlife.org/relay/about Please donate to your local Relay event and if you are interested in sponsoring me, leave me and comment and I will send you the link so you can make a donation!
So that about wraps it up! Busy, Busy, Busy!
I will be playing catch on all of my blog buddies... I will be visiting you all soon!

The Girls Beat the Boys

Last Saturday Night my best friend Kim and her family came over. The kids played Wii and the adults played a friendly game of Spades. Kim and I have always been partners against Frank and Matt. We used to play cards all the time. But then kids were born and yadda yadda yadda. Anyway we need cheap entertainment. We are all about cheap these days! Well we finally did it! The Girls beat the Boys! The first time EVER! The funniest part of the whole thing was watching them try to figure out how they could beat us! When the last hand was I knew it was OVER! We laughed and laughed! You could see the wheels spinning in their heads! Kim and I had to mark the day in history and of course - take a picture! Frank couldn't add the final score. Instead he wrote something "ugly". Therefore I cropped the bottom. It was too bad - but my blog is rated "E" - for everyone!

Disappointing News

I received some very disappointing news Thursday night. My father will most likely be laid off from his job by the end of the month. He has worked at this company for over 30 years. The plant will probably be shut down completely by the end of the year if the economy doesn't pick up. My daddy is only 59 years old and is not prepared to retire right now.... To add to the "stress" my baby sister had a "turn key" wedding planned for April. With the lay off of my dad, that wedding is not possible. My daddy is very disappointed that he can not pay for the wedding of my sisters dreams. He stated that he felt like a failure. That broke my heart... Not only hearing my dad's words, but also that Stevie (baby sis) can't have the wedding she has always dreamed of. SO with that being said, I have been kind of down in the dumps...

I receive a Daily Devotional and here is an excerpt of what it said...


You may be surprised—even shocked—by something unexpected that happens today. But remember: God saw it coming and sees how it fits in the big picture of your life. You may not have seen it coming, but God did.
Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives, is the perfect preparation for the future that only he can see.


I needed a reminder that God knows all that is happening before it happens. HE is in control. I know all this will work out. God will see to it..


Please keep my family in your prayers....

In the mean time, we have about 9 weeks to re-plan this wedding on a much "smaller" scale. I have to get busy!
