My Little Helper.....

I would like you to meet Taytum.......
She is my friend Lori's daughter and one of my biggest helpers at the store. She loves to come up and help me make candles. Her job is usually putting the wicks in the jars for me. I secretly think she just loves hanging out with me!!! Ok, maybe not, but she is such a sweetie and is ALWAYS willing to help. Unfortunatley, because of everything going on with her family (thanks again to all you prayer warriors out there) she has'nt been able to come in as often.
I also have to say, that she has been an AMAZING little helper to her mom these days. She is the only girl and has 3 brothers. Cale, (Sawyers best friend) her older brother, and Oliver and Jaixen are her little brothers. She is a little mother hen to the little boys. Lori and her kids have been through soooo much, but they keep on keeping on and every day gets just a little easier. I could'nt end this post without mentioning Taytums VERY unique sense of style. She LOVES clothes and comes up with some very interesting outfits. But my favorite is when she wears jeans with her dresses or skirts. SOOOOO cute!! One day, she wore her tutu over jeans to school! How cute is that???? What's great about that is she does'nt care what other people think, if she likes it, thats all that matters. She is a special little girl who is very loved! Please continue to keep this family in your prayers.

I want to wear cute outfits and not care what people think. Alas, I am confined to the GAP. I think I should hang out with you girls, learn about style and I could learn about candles, too :)

She looks so much older since the last time I saw her. She's certainly a cutie and has the prettiest smile. I remember you fawning over her leggings once upon a time. :) With that, have a good weekend. I'm excited to see a gaggle of old high school/college friends this weekend! What are you guys doing???

My dad was also in Vietnam...He has told me a few stories...it's unbelievable to me what he had to endure. Both over there and when he got home. My brother in law is currently in the airforce also. The individual as long as the family has sacrifices to make living out such a lifestyle. Please tell your father and grandfather thank you from me. Their sacrifices are much appreciated
