Versatile Style by Tracey

Posts Tagged ‘Family

When my kids were younger we would have weekly meetings and pass around notebooks writing one thing we were grateful for about each member in their notebook.  We would then get our own notebook back and read and talk about them.. It was a wonderful bonding time. My regular readers know that I post my gratitude list daily on my blog and will understand why this was so inspirational to me.  

I literally squealed with delight when I was reading H & K Style Journey’s blog today and saw this:

Couples could use something like this one pictured above, but I think like a mother of four and remember Heather’s previous post using this frame from Walmart and want to run out right now and get started on making one… thank  you for the inspiration, Heather!!! A side note, early in my marriage I cut up red and pink hearts and would  write reasons and things I love about my husband and gave them to him for Valentine’s Day… I added to it for years, not so much now, but maybe time to restart that!  

However, reality struck and I have other things to do today , but I may just fit it  in, after all It is Super Bowl Sunday and I love doing two things at once, so perhaps I could gather the things and put this together tonight… Whenever I get it done I will post photos.  

I Hope this inspires you to spread love and gratitude to your family today! 

Thanks for Stopping by and my apologies for not posting a weekly look with my red-orange jeans.  i just got too excited over the warm front that dropped by and the chance to wear dresses and skirts.  

My family and I had a very special day filled with lots of fun and laughter.  I treasure days like these when we are all together with nothing to do but enjoy ourselves.  I hope all of you who celebrate Christmas had a special day as well.  


Christmas Eve, my daughter had me open this wonderful apron!  Since I have everyone over for breakfast and cook them dinner as well, it was the perfect gift and I put together an outfit all around this fun apron that jingled when I danced or jumped around.  I love my daughter so much for knowing that I would have so much fun with this. Then again I met her at the airport after she spent her 16th b’day in Japan with a sash and a crown and she wore it all around the airport to humor me…. It’s great being a woman and I wan to teach her to have fun!


I wish you could see my daughter’s Grinch shirt here.. And the wacky woman in green is my sister.  We women embrace this funky fun dressing on Christmas….

IMG_1159Not a great photo,  but the only one that had all four of my children…

IMG_1162Believe it or not, my oldest requested this book for himself!


I love the shocked look on Connor’s face here.  There were so many of the two of them together with beaming smiles, but I chose this one since it was different…

IMG_1205This was my favorite moment of the day!  Connor has just discovered that in this box is an Android tablet.

He was told not to react as the other kids were all opening the same gift at the same time and I cut his box open first and was going around to the others.  For a twelve year old this is a terrific grown up present and he was so happy!

And the biggest news of all for the day was that I reached over 10,000 all time views on my blog today!

You should have seen me discover it when the number was 10,001 and my happy dance with my jingle bells sounding off!

What a fun day to reach such a milestone!

My Dearest Readers I hope you all had a wonderful day and thanks for checking in!
