  1. Hey Rachel!
    Thanks for stopping by my lil blog! I loved reading yours as well. Writing scriptures on the beams while building a house is an awesome idea! And it looks like we both like Despicable me as well! ha!!

  2. Entered all the categories! Thanks for the opportunity to win! You and your teacher friends look adorable! And guess what....I knew I loved you Rachel....I have the base of my tree down to start fluffing this weekend!!! (In my defense, my tree is 12' and it takes a looong time). Is that a good excuse to start decorating?
