I am looking forward to this trip. Winter started early this year and we haven't had much warmth since October. Z said that he is packing shorts. I am also looking forward to meeting my brother's fiancee' . I haven't met her yet and given my approval..LOL I love my brother and I am glad that she makes him happy.
Looking at this picture, I realize that I have a motley looking brood...I love them all so much and they are such blessings to me and J. Too many years I spent praying for them to arrive. I am one joyful mother. God had blessed us beyond measure. Thank you Jesus!!!
I hope everyone has a great Christmas!!

We had a wonderful night away, doing the things we did pre-kids. It was lovely.
I am trying to get back into sewing. There are loads of projects that I want to do and that I have the stuff for. It is part of my purge and organize theme for the new year. Get rid of the clutter by using it and not hording it.
Ok I just rememberd that the groceries weren't put up and I guess I need to do that. Maybe I will show you what I make....maybe.....
If I don't chat with any of you soon, have a wonderful MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!

Sometimes I think about what it would have been like if we did have teens. But then again I shudder and thank God that my kids are still little. I don't know if I am ready to handle teenagers yet... although I don't have much time to get ready.
God knew what was best in my life. He had a plan that He wanted to see accomplished. I praise Him everyday for my kids. They are what I hoped and prayed for. J and I have years together that those same friends tell me they wish they had. We had so much time to establish our relationship and I am grateful for that.
These are just my thoughts.

So my online journaling class started Monday. Monday was spend making my album to put the pages in. This was a lot of fun. Generally I buy an album to put my scrapbook pages in, but this time I decided not to buy a thing and use what I had. The album that I had was too small, so I cut the front and back off and made new ones. I do like how it turned out.
Today was spend printing off the pages that had the journaling prompts. There are sections for Roots, Family and Self. So after printing and printing and printing I finally was able to cut the pages and hole punch, and cut and hole punch, and on and one......... So far I enjoy the class and it has inspired me to journal more. I may do some here. There is so much that I want my kids to know. I tell them lots, but I want it written down.
On another note. Aaron has strep AGAIN... so if you can keep him and the rest of our family in prayer, I would appreciate it. J and the other 2 have a nasty virus and I am praying a hedge of protection over myself!!! Mom cannot get sick!!
Have an awesome day!!

I have been tearing my room apart looking for supplies for this class. You would think with all the stuff that I have I would be able to find it. Oh well, I guess I will make due.
Off to clean up the mess I made while looking for everything that I need for tomorrow. After church we are taking the kids to see Madagascar 2.. should be fun.
Have a great weekend

So here I am at 9 am just now getting my coffee. I do love the age that my kids are at. The boys usually come downstairs when they wake up and watch tv. L stays in her room, I cannot allow all 3 unsupervised in the same room. That is just asking for trouble. Anyway, today I came downstairs to find A on the computer and Z organizing the dvds.
Well, I am off to take a late morning shower. The kids are watching Charlottes Web.
Have a great day

Daniel 2:21 (King James Version)
21And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
So Aaron and I got to talking about the election and I had to remind him that God is in control. Yes, we have a voice, yes, we need to vote, but that no matter what happens God knew what is going to happen, long before the reporters and election officials. Now this book doesn't know that today is election day but I really think that God was reminding me that HE is in control. Then just now I was reading my little devotion book and they had Romans 13:11Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
So today as our country waits to hear what the "majority" (don't get me started on the electoral college) says, I am reminded that God is in control...Hallelujah!!
Just my thoughts.
On a lighter note.. Trader Joes is opening up in Nashville!!! We have 2 Whole Foods which I like but Trader Joes is AWESOME!!!! So the kids and I are going to take a little field trip. Should be fun!!

I live within 4 hours of several of the ladies and I think we don't meet up enough.
On anther not I killed the microwave... It was ready to go I think because it didn't put up much of a fight. I was not looking forward to buy a new one. We only use it for 3 things, water, popcorn, and mac and cheese..... It is an over the range model so it isn't like I could just fork out 50 bucks and get a new one. And since J had to replace the alternator in my car while I was gone, the money trees are bare. So we went shopping and Voila' found one on clearance for $111 and it was the last one so we got it for $70!!! Whoo Hoo.. Thank you Jesus!!!
Now it needs to climb up on the stove and get in place and do it's job!!
Well, I need to get off and get the kids educated..A is unloading the dishwasher, Z is feeding the cat and cleaning her "bathroom" and L is bringing the dirty clothes down..So I guess I should be productive too.
Have a great day!!

I love fall. I love the open windows, the cooler temps, the falling leaves and the coffee. J is off for fall break and we are getting some cleaning done. We took a one day trip to Gatlinburg Saturday. Rested from that trip on Sunday and then today is a cleaning day. Tomorrow is up in the air, but hopefully it will be something fun. The kids and I are off all week. I leave on Thursday for a yearly trip with some dear make believe (Internet) friends of mine. We meet yearly for a little get together and I have missed the past 2. This one is in Atlanta so it is driving distance away. So we just took the whole week off. Ok.. I need to get up and get moving!

So this week I tried this This was also really good. I even ate a few naked cheetos to go with it and I felt like I was actually eating lunch. Next I will throw a few veggie crumbles in our spaghetti or chili and see if anyone notices.
So am I going? I don't know. How's that for an answer. But I do know that I think we eat too much meat. Now I honestly don't think anyone can make veggie seafood and get away with it...So all the lobsters of the world are not safe!!!
