Vacation Bible School

We had Vacation Bible School the week of July 13-17. It went fairly well. We had an average of about 52 kids per night! Our high was 55! Lots of work but worth the effort! The theme was entited Castles, Swords and Kingdoms.
King & Queen Puppets, sorry the picture is hard to see!

Giving out awards on closing night


Telling the continued story. Daniel did all the artwork for it! Thanks hon!



Who is the king of the jungle?



I hate when people post pictures sideways but I couldn't get this one to flip so, here it is, the king and the queen!



Daniel's Ordination

I think that most of these pictures are self-explanatory! Daniel was ordained on July 7, 2009. Now he's officially a minister!

My Birthday Flowers

Yesterday was my birthday. It was a nice "surprise" to get flowers delivered to my door. My dad always sends me flowers but I hadn't thought about it at that time yesterday. They are so nice and especially so because I never get flowers delivered to me! Thanks Dad!

Happy Mother's Day

Just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mother! You are the best mom ever! Thank you for all you did to raise me into the wonderful woman I am today! :) Thank you for listening to me when I need someone to vent to and for giving me advice. I love you and hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to my mother-in-law as well. You did a great job raising my fine husband! He's someone I am proud of and you helped to shape him into that man! You are a wonderful mother-in-law. Thank you for putting up with me and acting like I am your honest to goodness daughter! I love you! Happy Mother's Day!

What a morbid cake!

Josiah's 2nd Birthday

Here's some pictures of Josiah's 2nd birthday! He got into the cake before we had it so it looks worse for the wear!

I'm still here.

Now, this may sound like a strange request but I need help! We just got an internet filter (safe eyes . . . see it at safeeyes.com). It will filter out all of the bad garbage. The crazy thing is, when I try to go on my blogspot, it will not let me because it says that there is sexual words on it so as long as I have it checked not to display any sexual content, I cannot get on it. I cannot for the life of me figure out what in the world it could be talking about! If you find anything, let me know. I was going to bust on my mother and say I could not get on hers because it had bad stuff on it and ironically, it won't let me on my own! So, if you can help me out, that would be wonderful!

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Happy 35th birthday! May you have many many more! Sorry that this is not a very good picture but the other picture that I have readily available is from the back and I did not think you would appreciate that either! Happy birthday anyway!

Josiah's Birthday Suggestions.

I know, I know, I should know what I am going to buy my son for his birthday, but I don't! He will be turning 2 on March 23rd. I would really like to use some money I received from searching on swagbucks to get his gift. The only thing is, I have to get the gift from Amazon! I have 30.00 but will have 35.00 in a couple of days. I would like to stay within that limit if possible! If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it! Just leave a comment below if you have any! :)

Our "New" Van

Okay, so we broke down and got another van. You can look at that either way. Our van broke down so we broke down and got another. We have still kept our other mini-van on the road but it has many issues that need to be fixed and we really didn't want to keep on putting money into it right now. Below are the pictures of our 2000 Ford Windstar. We hope it works out good and everything! It still needed aligned so we don't have it yet. Probably will have to wait until the beginning of the week to get it. Time will tell.

Prayer Request for My Daddy

Just wanted to put out a prayer request for my daddy. He is having to go in for "exploratory surgery" on Friday. He has never had to be put out before so pray that all goes well. Looks like more surgery in the near future as well. Keep him in your prayers.

No Longer With Us

Well, just a little bit after 3 months of having this bird, it has "passed away". Not really sure why it did. We uncovered it on Sunday (it had been covered with a light cloth for sleeping) and it was dead. Oh well, guess that is life. It was fun while it was happening. :)

Losing weight?!?

Anyway, I have not been doing real good with this weight loss thing over the holidays but, I have been trying to cut back the last little bit. I went to update my weight loss ticker this morning and was surprised to see I had lost between 2-3 lbs from when I had last updated it! Anyway, about 10 lbs. lost total!!!!! That's exciting to me! I'm going to keep plugging away. I bought a size 22 jacket and skirt combo (it was on major clearance) and hope to wear it for Daniel's ordination in July! We will see! There are pics of it below. I think it is very nice and hope I accomplish my goal.

Our New Addition

I hate it when people say they have a new addition to their family and it ends up being an animal. Henceforth, I am not going to say that we have a new addition to our family but to our house. We got a cat this last week. It's former name was/is Smokey. We are not sure if we are going to rename it or not. Guess we will decide whenever!!! :)

Two happy girls because they have a kitty cat!






The cat . . . whatever his name is! Any suggestions?

Josiah in the snow.

I suppose I should post a picture of Josiah as well since he went out too! He kept on loosing his gloves though and then would cry because his hands were cold. It's much nicer to take a little older kid out!!!! :) But . . . the little ones enjoy it too!

Snow!

We had a snow storm today so while Daddy was out snow blowing and working hard, Mommy and the kiddos built a snowman. Daddy did have to take a break and put in place the middle snowball. Thanks daddy! It turned out really cute. Also, I will try to post a picture of the finished product later if I can find some batteries. The ones in my camera died! Hope you enjoy!

Our Christmas 2008

We always have a special breakfast before we open presents on Christmas morning. Here is the rest of them eating breakfast!Daniel playing with his remote controlled dragonfly. He seemed to like it.

All of the kids playing in the playhouse Felicia got for Christmas.

Josiah opened some clothes. There was some fuzzy jammies in this package. He instantly took them and put his thumb in his mouth. He loves to suck his thumb with something soft in his hand. Hopefully he will get over this some day!


The girls with lollipops we got for them. Don't you love Felicia's teeth?
