Secondly we just heard that my husband's Aunt just found out that she has cancer. The doctors told her that she has 6-9 months to live. So....please pray for the family (her husband and children especially). She sounded very strong on the phone when she spoke with my MIL. So...I just wanted to ask for prayer for those two families.

Well...devotions have been sporadic and that is completely my own fault...no one else's. This morning my devotion was about hearing God's voice. Matthew 11:15 says, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." And one of my favorites, John 10:27, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." So my question to you today is....are you one of his sheep? Do you hear his voice and follow? Does God know you...or are you one that claims to know him and when you get to heaven he will tell you to depart for he never knew you. I pray that all could fall under the category of being His sheep. Why is it that people want to go their own way instead of being under the protection of the shepherd? Every time a sheep strays from the shepherd it brings nothing but trouble. If they stay where they are supposed to they are protected. It is funny how God compares us to sheep and not chickens, cows, deer, etc. Comparing humans to sheep is perfect. Whether we want to believe it or not. ;) Just a short post today. Wanted to share these verses. May the Lord bless you today and the rest of this year. =)

I went to see the midwife again today...in her new house...and everything seems to be fine. When she measured me she was surprised how much I grew from last time. Apparently this baby wants to catch up with his/her siblings quickly! So...I am very happy and she is pretty sure the baby is still head down.
On Wednesday night I came home with 4 dresses for DD and I finished one for myself yesterday. We are doing it again this Wednesday and there are 3 more dresses for DD and 2 for me! They should all get done Wednesday as long as a certain Miss G remembers her bobbin holder! ;) Two of the dresses for DD are already started. I can't believe we had about 5 sewing machines going at one time! It was truly a blessing. Well..I better go and work on some more projects!
Wednesday, December 20, 2006
Wow...so much has happened, it seems, since Friday. After I came down and saw the 100 balloons... the day was pretty normal. That evening we went to my in-laws where my MIL made me a birthday dinner of spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, and chocolate cake with penuche icing. (not sure if I spelled that right). They also gave me some money to put towards a baby sling I had been wanting. What is amazing is I ordered the sling on Saturday and got it on Monday! I still can't believe it. Can't wait to use it with the baby! =)
On Saturday we went to a friend's home to drop off fabric and I find out that along with a girl from church they made me a jumper and blouse for my birthday! I love it. I was actually able to "squeeze" into on Sunday. If I grow any more I won't, but at least I have a beautiful new jumper. I was dropping off fabric because this afternoon I am going to her home and there are going to be about 5 of us sewing dresses for my daughter and myself. DD will probably have almost 5 dresses by the time we leave. Hopefully DS will have a vest and I hope to have at least one dress to take home to. There was a lot of sewing that I needed to do, but I knew I wouldn't get it all done in time and I am being blessed with this. If I can get batteries for the camera I will definitely get pictures and post them. The batteries died on the camera last week....they sure don't seem to last long. :( Oh Well....
As for myself, I am trying to seek the Lord in all things. I let myself get to "busy" with the things of this life this summer/fall and I think I tuned out God's voice. I am back to having more regular bible study, but go figure this morning my little girl woke up early. I have come to realize though, that as a mother, I am not going to be able to have the devotional times I once had. But as I go about my day I try to "drink up" as much of his word as I can. I like to post bible verses around the home..I hope to post about these one day too when the camera is functional. ;) I know there are many areas I fall short in, but I am learning not to dwell on them. I know that is what Satan would have me do. If I were to focus on what I can't and not on the things I can do or have improved on....he has one because my outlook is bleak. Negative thoughts do nothing for my spiritual life. Christ already fought that battle for me. I just need to remember to always look towards Christ and he will see me through. He has already helped me to come a long way in my spiritual walk with him, but he isn't finished with me yet. He is working on me so I can have a heart like his.
I know this is a strange place to just leave off, but I need to get back to my children. May the Lord bless you and keep you through this day and week. =)

Okay....so far today I have received a lovely note from my hubby and a living room floor full of Balloons!!!! Needless to say the children are having a wonderful time playing with the balloons. I am going to finish getting ready and the children ready and I think we are going to visit Nana (at work) and the residents at the Country Club. Tonight we are invited over to Hubby's parents. She is fixing my birthday dinner. Hope all have a wonderful day!
***Update**** After some counting and talking to Hubby...I actually have around 100 balloons!!!!

Psalm 37:4- Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Romans 12:10- Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another
Proverbs 4:26-27- Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
Proverbs 4:18- But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
And this is one of my favorites...
Isaiah 55:8-9- For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
When I had struggles over the past few years this verse reminded me that God is always there and just because I thought something should happen a certain way did not mean that was God's intention. Especially when hubby lost his job of 5 years 6 weeks before DD was born and they refused to give him severance (sp?) pay.
We did not always understand everything God was trying to teach us, but we thank it for him everyday. We have so much to learn if we only open our hearts to God's word. Many people know God's word, but don't really KNOW it. I mean...they have the head knowledge, but it's not in their heart. If you do not believe God's word with your whole heart there will never be a change. I have seen this firsthand from many individuals. They can quote scripture after scripture to you, but their lives don't bear any fruit. One of my former pastors is actually like this. He is a very intelligent man and knows a lot about the Bible, but his life....he doesn't bear any fruit and that is probably why he has left his position as a pastor (he left it over 4 years ago) and is following the world with it's standards. It really is quit sad. So...my challenge to you all today is to listen to what God has for you. You may not know for a while his direction, but He will make his desires known to you in due time. Trust me...we waited for 2 years on a "job direction" for Hubby and we are still waiting on answers for some other things...but we know the Lord will show us when we are ready and the time is right.
May the Lord bless you all on this December day. ;)
Oh yes...if you have time check this link out. Hubby found it probably a year or so ago, but just "found" it again to show me. It is all too true in our society.

This is the awesome coat Hubby got me for my birthday. Believe it or not....it is WASHABLE Suede! That is what the tag and washing directions say...so we will see. I absolutely love it!
Here are a couple of pictures of the "house" my parents brought up for the children.
These last two pictures are of an Oak Leaf Runner that I tested for Kathy (aka Katchkan) over at Crochetville. I just finished it today. Anna ...don't worry...I am starting the cozies tonight! ;)
This weekend was truly a blessing. My parents came up on Saturday and we are a wonderful visit. As soon as Mom and Dad got here Mom went to work. She helped me sort the children's clothing and get them in boxes. I sorted all of DS clothing before DD was born (clothes he had outgrown), but since then.....I failed. So at least now the boxes are marked whether they are boys are girls clothing and the size. Will be much easier after the baby is born to find the clothing that will be needed as he/she grows. I was going to do it next month, but it would have taken me ages to do it and we got it done in one day. After about 1 hour of working we went out to eat for lunch at Jakes....I like Jake's but hadn't been there in almost 2 years probably ...and Mom and Dad treated. Which was very kind of them. Once we got back Mom and I continued on sorting and Hubby and Dad did a lot of odds and ends job around the house. They put another rod in our closet to hang clothes on...which was badly needed, to say the least! Oh yes, the children have a play house now. Mom and Dad's pastor's family had an extra outdoor fisher price type play house and they brought it up this weekend. So now the children have their own little house.
Once Mom and Dad left our family was on a mission. To find a DVD/VCR combo for Hubby's mom. She wanted to buy one for Hubby's dad for Christmas. So..off to KMart we went. Once at Kmart there were a lot of things on sale. We got the children each a new pair of Jammies (buy one get one free!) and Hubby got a fleecey type pullover for halfprice. Hubby wanted me to look at coats (he has been trying to get me a winter coat for years!) I made one when DS was a few months old, but I made it so heavy the thread is giving in a lot of places. We have searched garage sales and thrift stores to find a coat, but no luck. If I actually liked the coat it was usually a size 6 petite....and there is no way I would ever be able to wear that! Not at 5'10". So after Kmart Hubby suggested we go to JcPenney. They had their coats 60% off! Well...I looked around and fell in love with one, but I still didn't want to pay $80. Well they had a big sale this weekend and Hubby found a coupon that if you spent over $75 dollars you got $15 off. So he bought me the coat for my birthday and we saved $130 off the original price!!! I still can't believe it. I haven't had this nice of a coat since my high school letter jacket (at it was a nice coat too.) So now I don't know what to do with myself. It's such a nice coat. I will try and take pictures of everything later, but I have to have good sunlight with the digital. The flash really changes the look of everything.
Anyway, on to Sunday. I was blessed by the message at church, but the biggest blessing came that evening. My inlaws offered to watch the children so Hubby and I could go watch Handel's Messiah at MVNU (my alma mater). It was so wonderful! I remember not caring for it at all in college and now.....it was a blessing to my heart and soul. I have most of it memorized anyway. When DS can't sleep we put the CD player in his room and he loves listening to the Messiah. So I had about 90% of it memorized! When we returned the children were bathed and in jammies, so all we had to do was bring them home and put them in bed.
So, now that I have told you about my weekend, I better get started on my household duties. And Monday is laundry day! I want to try to stay on top of things this week to. My nephew's birthday party is Saturday and I don't want a lot of things left undone before we go to see him. Which reminds me....I need to find a gift for him! Oh my...where is my head. At least I know my MIL is making me a cake for my birthday. I am hoping for her chocolate cake with ganache icing. ;) That is the best!
May you all have a blessed Monday!

Mom called me yesterday and said that they are planning on coming up for a visit Saturday. The children will be very excited to see Grandma and Grandpa....just hope nothing gets said about us not "decorating" for Christmas. Oh well....won't be anything new. So today my goal is to try and get the computer/sewing room in order so I can do some much needed sewing and we can use the treadmill. Right now...there is too much stuff on the floor to use it. My sewing list is getting long. I need to make DS pj pants; DD a nightgown, and at least 3 dresses and I need to make a couple of dresses for myself too. Oh yeah....I also need to make a slip cover for our couch and one of my favorite chairs. So...I better get to work because I need to finish the laundry up too! May you all have a blessed day!
Monday, December 04, 2006
Just got back from going to see the midwife. All looks good. Blood pressure, pulse, measurement and baby's position all look good. She is pretty sure the baby is in the head down position which is really good to hear. Last time the baby had His/her head in my ribs. Hopefully the baby will stay head down. With DD I needed to go see a chiropractor and he gave me an adjustment that gave her more room and she turned from Breech to head down in two days! So..Praise the Lord...he has answered prayer again. But now...back to unpacking...I know...I know...I am really, really slow at it. But that is okay. We are being blessed with a family from church coming over tonight with supper...So I don't have to cook!!!!! May you have a wonderful God Filled Day!

I thought I would share a few pictures quickly from the parade we went to this past Saturday. I think (for 2 children) we brought home about 3 lbs of candy (easy) It was amazing how much they where giving the children! The first picture is of the children in front of Nana and Prapaw. You can see my little "cowboy" with his hat on. ;) The theme was a "western" type theme for the parade so the children had their cowboy boots on (compliments of Nana and Prapaw.) The next two pics are of DS's favorite things.... Horses and firetrucks.
These next pics are of my goofy children. ;)
Can you tell DD likes her two fingers? ;)
I just wanted to do another quick check in. I am to see the midwife on Monday and hopefully the baby has turned, but...I don't think it has. I may have to go to the chiropractor on this one too. (DD was breech) So I will give all an update on that Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully I can get the house somewhat in order so I can post pictures. May God bless your day and week!
Friday, November 24, 2006
I am slowly getting things organized in the house. When I say slowly....I mean slowly....Pregnancy and 2 children sure do slow me down. But that is okay. It is only for a season that I will have these 2 "little" ones. It seems I get one room organized...go to unpack more boxes and the "organized" room become "Disorganized". Oh well...at least I can see how many boxes I have emptied...and it has been a lot.
Well. I just wanted to check in with everyone. I need to get back to making dinner! May you all have a God filled weekend!

And a side view.
Another Side view.
And a picture of the back of the house and yard.
Well Since we are moving quickly I better hurry and finish up the packing!
Monday, November 06, 2006
This morning on the way to see the midwife the children where holding hands in the van and praying. They actually fight over who gets to pray! I guess there could be worse things to fight over. My visit with the midwife went just fine. AFter checking my hemoglobin, blood pressure, pulse, baby's position, heartbeat, measurement, etc. She said everything looked fine. Now...We just need to find a house! Oh well...Since I was gone this morning I better go and get to my laundry and packing! I pray you all had a wonderful weekend!
Wednesday, November 01, 2006
Still haven't found a place yet. We are trusting in the Lord to provide. We have never been homeless yet. Right now...besides packing..I am getting ready for another craft show locally. It's actually at the church where Hubby and I were married. Most of my work will be Friday when I make the twinkies and truffles. Right now I think I better go. I am struggling to keep my eyes open. I need sleep! Blessings to All.

When you open my binder this is what you will see.
In this pocket I keep pencils, pens, index cards, scratch paper, and scissors. Then I have my dividers (which I need to add tabs to.) My first section is my schedule. I actually have everything scheduled out for the day...the time, the activity...everything. I have done this because it keeps me more on track. At this point if I just make a list of what needs to be done I tend to get off track and then I don't get done what I should. Plus when we get to move I will have to totally redo this (almost) so it fits my cleaning routine and everything for the new home. I forgot before my dividers I have this little saying. It is a great reminder for me. ;)
The next divider is my cleaning section. In here I have a paper that lists every room and what needs to be cleaned in each room. This way if Hubby helps or someone else comes to help they can just look at the list and they don't have to ask what needs to be done. I also have my "recipes" for my homemade wipes, and cleaners...which is mainly vinegar and water. ;)
I then have a calendar section. Here I have blank calendars (monthly) printed off for the next year. I write down appointments with the midwife, trash day, grocery trips, family gatherings, etc. This way it is all written in one space.
My last section is my coupon section. This mainly contains coupons for JoAnn's. ;) But I put ad's and other things in there that I need to keep track of for my shopping trips.
My binder is definately not done, but it is off to a good start. I have a separate binder for homeschooling but it doesn't have a whole lot in it yet since the children are still young. It is gradually having things added that I want them to do though. So...I hope you enjoyed peeking at my binder! :)
I know on Saturday I talked about going to look at a house. For the price there is no way! The carpet in the place needed to be replaced 20 years ago! I do not want my children crawling around on that! So...we are still looking and seeking the Lord in all of this. I know he will come through, but I need to hold onto that as the days pass by. ;) I now need to get to my laundry and do some more packing. May you all feel the presence of the Lord with you today! (He is always there!)
Friday, October 27, 2006
While I was in the store my cell phone rang...catching me completely off guard because it wasn't Hubby, but my mother. My Mom and Dad are coming up tomorrow forenoon for a visit and to have lunch together. So.....I have been working very hard...with Hubby's help (after work) on getting this house in order for company to come over. Now that is a chore. This house constantly has two tornadoes going through it and they are my children! Oh...some days things go well and they don't make huge messes and they clean up after themselves and other days....well....I need to pray a lot on those days. So anyway....Mom and dad are coming in the morning and in the afternoon we are off to a Birthday party at my Sister In law's home. It is our nephews birthday, my brother in law's birthday, and my sister in law's birthday...in that order. Nephew's was on Wednesday, BIL was on Thursday, and SIL was today (I think that's hosw it goes. ;)
Oh yes, I forgot...we are going to look at a rental in the morning before Mom and Dad arrive. Further away than we would have liked but we have to give it a chance. This will be the thrid one we have looked at. It is amazing how expensive rentals are! I can't believe it. We are spoiled though. The man that owned this we knew really well. He gave us a really good deal since we have to heat with propane. Anyway..I better get off of here and get back to cleaning before I take my shower and head to bed so I can get up early to finish cleaning! Blessings to all.
Thursday, October 26, 2006
I don't remember if I shared this already or not, but if I did...you will just get to hear it again. Last week when my husband went out to his car to leave for work he noticed that Shad, our dog, was wound up more than normal. He actually noticed him barking a lot since 5:30 that morning. Well when he got in his car and turned on his lights...you won't believe it. There was a cat in the Shad's pen! It was sitting up on top of his doghouse. Why in the world the cat would ever be possessed to get in there is beyond me. Hubby distracted the dog so the cat could jump out. But later this whole scenario got me to thinking. How many of us are like that cat? We don't see the devil and think ..."I could sneak in there just one time and I will never get caught." And then to our surprise Satan comes out from the Shadows and we are trapped. He has us cornered and there is nothing that we can do about it. We have to call upon the Lord to "distract" Satan so we can get away from his hold.
I praise the Lord today that he sent his Son to die for my sins so I don't have to be trapped by Satan in the pen. I was given a free and easy way out. Just something for you all to think about today. God's blessings.

Monday, October 23, 2006
So anyway...I just wanted to let you know how our day went. Next year when Hubby has time off we are going to do a lot more things. This will one day turn out to be a week long activity. We have a lot of ideas for things! I am excited. We decided to do this since we don't get into Christmas with Santa and all the gifts. We wanted a time for our family to celebrate what the Lord has done for us and I think this is going to be the perfect way to do it! May you all have a God Filled Day!
Friday, October 20, 2006
Probably because of everything going on Hubby gave me "permission" to go to JoAnn's today for their big sale. I got 2 yards of two different flannels to make jammies for the children, a Sunbonnet Sue cross-stitch pattern book, and the 99 Little Doilies book that I have seen Anna talk about a lot. I really wanted the 99 Snowflakes book too, but with us moving I didn't want to spend anymore money. I spent $25 and I saved $24. With my coupons I saved $13 and the flannel was half price and that saved me around $10. I thought I came away with some great deals.
Well I better go. I figured I better pack a few boxes everyday. That part always seems to take so long! Then I need to get ready for our 1st Annual Snow Family Celebration Day! May all have a God-Filled Day!
Thursday, October 19, 2006
A good way to put this "command" into action is to be Thrifty? Are you a thrifty person? I know I try. I have failed the past few weeks, but I have been reminded (by myself) that I need to be careful of how I spend the money my husband works so very hard for. I am sorry I am going to have to cut this short, but I hear the children starting to "stir" in their beds. Just remember ...are you extravagant or thrifty. May you have a wonderful God Filled Day!

So...after the message on Friday...I stayed up until about 11:45 pm fellowshiping with other sisters. Hubby had taken the children to our room to try and get them to go to sleep (No luck) Then Saturday Morning we had a wonderful breakfast and before the service we all divided up into prayer groups. This was such a blessing to be in a small group of just women (The men did this too) and have a time to share what was on our hearts and to share prayer requests...which we had time to pray for too. Then Paul shared the morning and evening messages that day about Titus 2 Family and parts of chapter 3. During the afternoon children from ages 5-25 played "The Game". I didn't get to see it because I took a nap with DD, but I heard it was quite a doozy!! It sounded like the children had a lot of fun! After the evening message we had time to spend with one another around a camp fire and singing songs (which hubby got to do and I stayed with the children..I was tired)
Sunday morning was such a blessing too. After Paul shared the rest of his message on Titus we had a time of communion with one another. Once we had communion the women and men divided up and we had a time of feet washing. This is where we would wash one another's feet and we would bless that person and pray for them as we did it. It was very emotional for some. It was quite humbling really. I could go on and on , but I just wanted to share a little bit about our weekend. I pray that you will allow the Lord to open your heart to his word. May the Lord bless you today and all through the week!
Friday, October 13, 2006
Well after making a hat for Hubby I made a hat for DS. I made it smaller because...he is a boy. WEll the child must have a really big head! After frogging the thing completely I still ended up with it being a little too small. Oh well....at least he has a hat now even if it doesn't fit him perfectly. It is out of the small yarn that Hubby's is out of, so they have matching hats. I might make DS a scarf too. He really like wearing scarves last winter. I don't know. Right now I am really busy with keeping the home, testing for people (at least I finished for Anna), and actually...I need to get ready and get things packed so we can leave for the camp meetings as soon as Hubby gets home! So...I probably won't post until Monday. May all have a wonderful God Filled weekend!
Thursday, October 12, 2006
Now...I realize most of you are probably wondering, "What in the world is she talking about?!" Matthew 6:3-4 says "But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly." I know that it does not mean that I should let my left hand "see" what my right hand does, but trying to explain this early was hard. I asked my Hubby before he left for work and he said, "It is doing something without thinking about it. That your giving is second nature." I like that...second nature. Is giving second nature for you? Do you give so that people will commend you and thank you openly? If you give to charity maybe you should do it anonymously? Also we shouldn't be thinking that we are "so great" because we did this or expect to get recognized for it. What we do in this life is seen by our heavenly Father above and he will reward us in due time.
My challenge to everyone today is to find a charity to give to, volunteer for, donate items for......or find a family that is in need and help provide for that need. Maybe the family needs a sack of groceries to get them through until the next payday. Or maybe the children need diapers, clothing, etc. Is there a way that you can help out. Are you good at sewing? You probably have a "stash" somewhere that you could make blankets to donate. If you knit or crochet baby hats, blankets, and booties are always welcome at places like CareNet and sometimes hospitals (especially for newborns). If you cook maybe you can help out at a soup kitchen or a hot meals program. There are all sorts of things you can do! The possibilities are endless. I bring this topic up because: 1) it was my devotion for the day and 2) with the holiday season coming up I know how a lot of people get. This is the time of year when "Me" is most important and getting what I deserve. I pray that you will seek the Lord and ask him where you can be used and in what capacity. May God fill you life with Joy today!

Aren't babies amazing? Here are a couple picks of DS and DD when they were born.
Ds is on the left and DD is on the right. Do you think they look alike? ;) They both take after their father. Maybe this one will actually look like me! Who knows..they are beautiful none the less.
After I went to see the midwife my friend, my children, and I went to Zinck's fabric store. Their $5 bolt sale was deceiving (not the big bolts like we thought) but we still got good deals. I will try and post pics later of what I bought. I purchased fabric to back DS's blanket, fabric for slips/bloomers, fabric for napkins, fabric for aprons, and fabric to make DD and I a dress. Before I can get to all that sewing I have a lot to do. So May you all have a wonderful God Filled Evening!
Tuesday, October 10, 2006
I also wanted to show a picture of how our trees in the front/side of the house have turned. The person renting the farmland started combining the beans today. That provided a lot of entertainment for my children (at least for a while). They can never seem to sit still. ;)
I am off to see the midwife tomorrow. I pray all have a wonderful God Filled Day!
Monday, October 09, 2006
Common Deceptions Barb covered were: 1) I am a victim of abuse, therefore I can never be whole, 2) This is who I am. I'll always abe this way, 3) My value is based on my performace, 4) I have to be liked by everyone 5) There's a limit to God's resources, and she covered a couple of others. Most of us would never say that there is a limit to God's resources, but sometimes we may think or live like there is. I know I have been guilty of that when our family was struggling with job and housing situations. There are also many women who believe that they can never change...it is just the way they are...THis is also not true. God can change anyone if they allow him to.
Oh..I could go on and on about the conference but I won't. I think you could probably purchase the tapes from the seminar by contacting Deeper Life Ministries. It would definately be worth your time. They already have the seminar planned for next year for October 6th. So...if any lady out there would enjoy an uplifting and informational day with other women...I would suggest you go. They also serve a wonderful lunch, coffee, tea, and cappuccino. ;)
Well..since I have been gone I have a lot of catching up to do. May you all have a blessed day and may you walk with the Lord!
Friday, October 06, 2006
Also...I finished something else for Anna. No....I can not tell you...You will just have to wait until she puts the pattern up for sale. I love this lady. I will say that it is very cute! Okay...something else. I do need to get to cleaning the house (which is very cold today) Go figure...they didn't know about r-19 insulation back in 1850. Oh well....I also need to get back to work on Titus' blanket. If I can get some more rows done today I will try and post pictures of my progress. Right now I have about 7-10 rows done and you can't see a whole lot yet. If I get this Tunisian thing down..I want PC stitch pro so I can make a lot of graphs and start doing more afghans with graphs. Okay...enough jabbering and on to work! Have a God-Filled Day!

I just felt like posting some pictures today. The top picture is of the barn and the garage on the property we are renting. The second picture is of my son's favorite animal. He loves getting to see these work horses everyday! I wish we coudl affor a horse for him, but it will be a long time before that happens. The third one is one angle of the house we are living in right now. Can you see DS's "horse" on the front porch? I love how the trees around the house are starting to change color. The picture below is of my children watching the Lawrence Welk show (in honor/memory of Grandpa George) It was Grandpa George's favorite show and DS would watch it with him every Saturday night. The children just love it! Grandpa George would be so proud! ;)
This last photo is of the Tea Cosy my partner sent me. I was never able to post it before, but I wanted to make sure I put it on my blog for all to see. Isn't it pretty! Hope you all enjoyed seeing pictures today.
Oh yes....Make sure you all go over and check out the Lullabies and Lace shop (link under Crochet heading) Anna has done the "smart" thing and has made me a moderator for the forum. I knew she was brilliant! ;)
