True Christmas Joy and Blessings

This Christmas Season we at LifeDesigning1 are all reminded of the True Blessings we have in our lives! We attended Mass at our son's school today to celebrate Christmas Joy and Blessings as well as praying for those in the world affected by harm! 

We watched our baby (Jackson - 6) walk in with his 8th grade buddy, decorate the Jesse Tree and sing for us. What a beautiful Mass! Probably one of my favorites ever! Jackson and his friends sang so strongly and proudly! 

Here are some pictures from today at Mass!


Jackson waits for his 8th Grade buddy after decorating the Jesse Tree ;)

Singing with his friends and all of the 8th Grade buddies!

We've been spotted! He ran over to give hugs! He sang so well! We are so proud!


Mommy, Daddy and Jackson! <3 So Proud!
I spent time crying in Church as I thought of last week's events in Connecticut!

The priest explained that there were 26 candles lit in the Church to represent those who passed away at Sandy Hook. :'( Our hearts and prayers have been with them since it happened! We have added them to our prayers at night and Jackson's school prays for them daily as well!



Remember your True Christmas Joy and Blessings!

Take a moment to say an extra prayer for those at Sandy Hook or if you're not the praying type...at least give them a moment of silence.

I know it's a little blurry...but the small red candles that lead up to Jesus and those in the shape of a heart represent those at Sandy Hook :'( God Bless Them!

We took a moment after Church to light a candle, say a few prayers and Thank God for all of the Blessings in our lives! <3

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you this holiday season! 


Thank you for reading our blog! <3

Burnt Rabbit Fur and St. Patrick's Cathedral ~ Adventure Days Part 4

As I told you before...
We had an amazing time in New York City for our Adventure Days!

I've got some more pictures to share: ;)

Jackson with is giant FAO Schwarz bag outside of the Apple Store!

Riding the escalator at Trump Plaza! Jackson loves escalators!
What to eat? What to eat? So many yummy choices at Trump!

Jackson's favorite was the carrot cake of course! LOL!

Yum!

Looking for fish in the Trump fountain! "No fish Gamma!"
The top of the Trump Plaza Christmas Tree! (2nd Floor)


More beautiful New York City decorations!

We saw Waverly Place!!! I was so excited! Wizards of Waverly Place is one of my Favs!!!



Jackson thought this was the best artwork at the New Museum! Watch the dogs carefully! It wasn't easy getting the video at night, but it is really cool! I wonder how many people actually notice these beautiful dogs!


If you know the story of Eloise at the Plaza by Kay Thompson (I used to teach Pre-K remember) then you definitely want to visit The Plaza Hotel! It was filled with Eloise things and even an entire Eloise store! Loved it! The pic of the Eloise books will take you to the Barnes and Noble site if you would like to check out more about Eloise.


Jackson and the Eloise at the Plaza sign!

I saved the best for last! One of my absolute favorite things from our Adventure Days in New York City was visiting The Plaza Hotel and seeing....SANTA!!!




Santa wasn't too busy, so he actually called Jackson over to him so they could talk! I loved it and Jackson was just thrilled! He felt so special to have Santa say he wanted to talk with him personally! Wow! Then Santa put us right in front of a group of 5 older girls so he could get his picture with Jackson 1st...the girls thought it was adorable and were very understanding! It's so nice to be in a world with such wonderful people!





Santa!!!!


I think someone was a little pooped after 2 wonderful days in New York City!

He was so excited to tell everyone about his Adventure Days in New York City! He told lots of people about Santa and also his Burnt Rabbit Fur story too! (Don't know the story? Check it out here!) That may be one he remembers for the rest of his life! LOL!

Purpose of Empower ~ DW

This is a recent Status Update from David Wood (Co-Founder of Empower Network!)
 
 
What is the purpose of the Empower Network?

There's a lot, but let me give you the biggest two reasons 'why' we do everything that we do:

1. To teach 'the Freedom Model' of Network Marketing and Internet Marketing to the masses in the industry who are sick and tired of 'grinding' strategies - 3 way calls, constant, never ending meetings, calling leads, being everyone to everybody - the need to become a Guru, the need to know everything before you make anything. To teach the real 'beach money' lifestyle formula, that works, and keeps you free - regardless of what business you're in.

Why is the freedom model badass? Because you can build a business, and have a life, too.

2. To give the average guy a real, accessable 'guru business' in a box. What's a 'guru business'?

It's the model that high level gurus spend their entire life creating, and is the most profitable kind of business that exists.

In Empower Network, we give you badass products in a well oiled, perfectly planned ladder of escalation, cover the support and technical infrastructure for you, develop the front end marketing systems to sell it for you, so you can...

...make money like the Gurus do - now.

No need to hire employees, no need to be a 'god' of marketing - no need to be a charismatic leader, yet - you can just...

...make money like the Gurus do.

Now.

Personally, I think that's some badass shit :)

If you have been curious about what Empower Network does for people...David Wood explains it well! Of course he would, he's one of the Co-founders! He and David Sharpe have taken great strides to make Empower Network what it is today!

  • A Business that can teach anyone how to Market themselves! 
  • A Business that has brought many from Homeless to successful...
  • A Business that offers 100% Commissions!
  • A Business that has a platform that will help you rank higher on Google just by being a part of it!
  • A Business where Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe have taken all of the Expensive Steps...so you can start your own business for $25/month! 
  • A Business where the trainings are phenomenal, as well as worth way more than their cost!
  • A Business that teaches you to be you! True and Honest! Tell your story to the world!

So many pictures to share! ;)

We had such a wonderful time in New York City and Mom is quite the photographer! LOL!

She just keeps snapping away! I'm thankful for all of the pictures to share with you!

Christmas in New York City is just beautiful! Jackson was sooo excited and loved every minute of it!

We made it to FAO Schwarz! Jackson and I were both excited! ;)

Someone offered to take a picture of all of us! Yay! Mom, Jackson, the FAO Schwarz soldiers and Me too!
These guys were the best! Such happy guys to be standing outside the most popular toy store in NYC to take pictures with practically everyone that walks through those doors! They were such a delight! So glad Mom could be in the picture with us too! Thank you random stranger! ;)

We spent hours in FAO Schwarz! How could you not?!?!

Jackson "Traveling the World" with Paul Frank!


Jackson chilling out with the golden bear. :)


The videographer (hee hee Mom) got a little spinny with the camera...Sorry but cute! I really have to find Big so I can show Jackson the movie! He will be amazed to see Zoltar and what happened when someone wished to be big! Wait til he sees the big piano that he got to play on too! We're off to the library to borrow that movie soon! Big Piano pictures and video coming up...

But...
First we stopped in the FAO Schweetz section of the store! Loved it!!!! We actually got chocolate covered gummy bears and had fun picking and choosing schweetz to take home with us! ;)

Jackson kept wanting Gamma to take the picture when I wasn't looking...so he could pose! LOL!

Jackson and the very heavy real Gummy Bear!
No, we did not get one of these...it would've lasted forever!


He's such a HAM! Posing by the clock! Listening to the FAO song!

Big Piano time!



I think he was a little nervous at first...but quickly realized how much fun he could have on there! He went back for a couple more turns! ;)

Phew...I'm a little pooped! But that was fun!

Lego Area! 




We were now entering Lego Land in FAO Schwarz!



Cool Characters...Jackson loves Star Wars!
One of the Soldiers!
Of Course Batman!




The beautiful Statue of Liberty!

Special Kudos to all those that spend numerous hours putting together these amazing Lego sculptures! That is probably fun! Could you imagine missing pieces?!






And did we leave the best Toy Store in NYC with a nice big bag?

Of course we did! LOL! More pictures to come...

I need to get to bed! It's too much fun blogging! I love it!
