5.4 Pounds off!

Well, I feel as if this week has been a semi-success. I lost a total of 5.4 pounds. I would have been down more but, I cheated on Saturday and Sunday!!! Will try to do better this week but will be hard as we are going to my in-laws for vacation. Pray I don't gain it all back. I would at least like to maintain or lose 1-2 lbs! It's too hard to hit it hard when you are at someone elses house and can't control what is being fed to you. I CAN control the amount I eat though so hopefully that will work! We will see!

Until next week,
Dieting with a purpose!

Daniel's pride and joy!

Here are some flowers that Daniel likes and grew. I believe they are called brugmansia or something like that. They, to me, smell like the honey and lemon cough drops. He thinks the smell is wonderful! Anyway, he had 5 blooms on the plant this year and was proud of them. They hang down from the plant as you can see and are quite big as compared to the notebook below.

Pumpkin Time!

Now, I know not everyone carves pumpkins but I personally don't see anything wrong with it so we do. I hope you don't think me as any less of a person because we do. :) We bring in the idea of how we are supposed to let our lights shine for Jesus! The kids have a good time!

One tired little guy!

Today poor Josiah had to have 5 shots! (He was behind) He has been doing well with them though and has hardly complained! Thank the Lord! Anyway, he must have obviously been tired tonight because my accordion case was here in the living room and he climbed up on it and went to sleep. This is exactly how I found him. He woke up shortly thereafter though. I think it must have been uncomfortable.

Felicia's first tests!

Below are pictures of Felicia's first tests in Kindergarten. The first one is math - she got a B- and the second one is phonics. She got an A+ - all of them right! She's doing good!

New Dresses!

While we were in revival with the Smiths, Sr. Smith made our girls each matching dresses. They turned out really nice. The girls are pictured here in their dresses, with Sr. Smith.

Hannah's 3rd Birthday Pictures!

I finally got Hannah's 3rd birthday pictures done. I think they turned out cute. She actually smiled for them! If you want to see all of them, go to

On My Way to Thinness!?!

For anyone who personally cares, I am attempting to diet - again. I have never been real successful but really want it to work this time. Daniel is hopefully getting ordained next summer and I would like to look nice for it. If you want to check out my progress, I have a weight ticker at the bottom of my page and will hopefully keep it updated, maybe once a week! If it disappears, you will know that once again, I have failed! Pray that it works and every once in awhile, even ask me how I'm doing! I want to be thin for once in my life!!!!

Our Newest Additon

Today my husband became the proud owner of a cockatiel. He has been wanting a bird for quite some time and has been looking at Parakeets but we have just simply felt as if we could not really afford it right now. Anyway, a lady we know was getting rid of this one and gave it too us. The only problem is, it knows how to "wolf whistle" and it is in my husband's study so in the summer months when the windows are open he might get into trouble - not really! :)

Political Patheticness!

Is anyone else really tired of this political race and wish it would end? I am so tired of the LIBERAL media already predicting Obama as a winner (or at least as I see it.) We have an awesome God that can do anything and I am praying that God will not let an evil individual get into office. If so, our country will be in dire straights and we will probably not be a "Christian" nation anymore. We so need to vote and we need to vote for the one with the most values - McCain. Even though we may not see eye to eye on everything, we MUST vote for him or we will reap the consequences maybe even persecution of the "change." Pray, fast and then on November 4th vote! The contest isn't over yet. Don't let the media convince you of such!

My kiddos! (Felicia's new dress)

These are the three kiddos after revival tonight. Felicia's clothes have been getting kind of small so Mom M. put a couple of things together for her or fixed things for her. Below, she is modeling one of the outfits - her favorite! Poor Hannah had been crying right before this picture - as you can see but we still got a nice smile out of her.
And . . . here's Josiah all smiles too!

Pastor Appreciation

Most people know that October is Pastor appreciation month. Last week our church gave us a pounding. Those are always nice and come in handy! Today they gave us a really big card and it had candy bars in it to complete a message A picture of the card is below.

The message inside the card said (in case if you can't read it) Pastor & Sr. Waterman, You may snicker why you read this. We wanted to thank you for the mounds of work you do for our church. Thanks for helping us when we are in a crunch. You "Skor" high with us! We hope you take 5 minutes for a fast break! We wanted to get you a whatchamacallit but they were all sold out. We wish we had 100 grand to give to you to go on a shopping spree but when payday comes in Heaven, you'll receive lots of crowns!

Thought that was nice of them and cute too!

Fall arrangement!

You know how it is when you have special company, you want your house to look all nice. Well in our table in the hall, we had had a nice spring arrangement but it really was not conducive to the fall season so, Daniel suggested we change it. Between the two of us, this is what we came up with. I think that it looks really nice and adds a nice touch to our front entryway! I love decorating for fall. Just yesterday I put up my fall decorations and started burning fall scented candles. I love this season. The only thing that I don't like and I won't even say the actual word because it is so bad is the season that comes after this one! YUCK! Anyway, we'll enjoy this season while it lasts!

Gym Class!

The other day we had gym class. We were actually combining science and talking about the good ways to exercise. I think we also threw in some talk about muscles which we had studied earlier in the week. Anyway, I came across the idea for having the children act like animals to exercise different parts of the body. The girls really liked this. Below is a picture of Felicia acting like a monkey. There were other things too like galloping like a horse, hopping like a kangaroo, flapping your arms and running around like a bird along with other things. They enjoyed it!

Felicia crawling like a crab!

Hannah acting out an animal and Felicia being like a snake! What a hard one!

Please pray for me!!!!!

Hey all of my fine friends - especially you pastor's wives or those who have been - We are starting revival tomorrow and it's a 10 dayer!!!! My house isn't ready yet and they are supposed to be arrive around 1:00 tomorrow! :( Not much time left! Also, can't go into all the details but I have been going through some tough things lately and would appreciate all of the prayers you could give. By the way, don't ask Daniel or me because chances are, we won't tell you anyway! Life has just not been a bowl of cherries - let's put it that way! :) It's me! Trust me! Anyway, just remember me in your prayers!

Felicia's 5th birthday pics

We got Felicia's 5th birthday pictures done - - - finally! I don't know if I'm supposed to post them but you could go to their website and see them so . . . . here are some of my favorites. If you want to see all of them, you can go to the following website to hopefully see the rest! No, the prices you will see on this website are not the prices I paid! Just in case you have a heartattack!

Well . . . Praise the Lord!

Just had something really funny I wanted to post. Last night we went shopping for food for revival. It was late and we had not had any supper so we pulled into McDonald's'. (You know the good trusty dollar menu!) Well anyway, I'm not sure if she was just hungry or if she just likes McDonald's or if she saw the play place but as we pulled in, Hannah got all excited and she sits back there in her car seat and says "Praise the Lord." Daniel didn't understand her at first but I did and began laughing so she couldn't hear me. She ended up saying 2 times before we went in. Maybe we all should be like that and thank the Lord for even a trip to McDonald's!
