The Lord's Prayer

I adore this little girl, what a tiny little witness for the Lord.

Waking up

I've been feeling good the past few days. The weather has potential for the first time in months! Gabey and I have been outside a few times already. Very nice. He's allowed to dig now, which is his favorite outdoor activity. LOL. Gideon is an awesome baby! I don't think i'm being biased either. he's so easy to make laugh, and he LOVES people. just a very good baby. and BEAUTIFUL!!! lol. his white blonde hair is so fun, sticking up, and his huge sparkley eyes, and wonderful laugh.

we had two pieces of GREAT news just yesterday! one is a little secret until we figure out some details (no not pregnancy, LOL), but the other is ok to share!....
we won a TRIP! i'm sure it's one of those time share sales things, lol, so we're going tomorrow to get our info, and probably listen to someone trying to sell us something. BUT afterwards we'll walk out with a vacation to Orlando for jeffie and me! airfare and hotel accomodations! woohoooo! we'll have a year to do it, so i'm thinking, probably when the weather STINKS here. lol, like next Jan!

i started Facebook, so if you're on facebook, look me up. i'm a gift MONSTER. lol. i love sending their little gifts to friends. they have adorable flowers, jewelry and winnie the poohs, and cupcakes, and so many cool cyber gifts to share. lol.
(i keep it super clean though, so if i get people who have swearing or junk like that, i'll probably delete them, so don't be offended if you get deleted off my friend's list... it's not that i don't want to be your friend in real life LOL, i just can't have junk on my facebook. :):):)

I got to go to a wonderful ladies' meeting in Ashtabula over the weekend, and my sister was one of the speakers! it was so awesome! i was so encouraged, and challenged about things ranging from being a better stay at home mom, to organization, being a proverbs 31 woman, being good to my husband.
i've decided to try to make one real meal a week to start off with.... for me that's a huge feat!! everything we have besides spaghetti is processed, canned, or fast food. this week, i'm going to try a pot roast!! my friend taught me how, so i'm going to tackle it on friday!! woohooo! i've decided that if i can get a few simple recipes that i'm good at, it will be so much better for us. i can do it every week if i want, and if i can learn to use my crock pot, i'll be set, and we won't be forced to stop at McDonalds all the time. :)

My brother sent me this poem

"Worth While"

It is easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is one who will smile,
When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
And it always comes with years,
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through tears.

It is easy enough to be prudent,
When nothing tempts you to stray,
When without or within no voice of sin
Is tempting your soul away;
But it's only a negative virtue
Until it is tried by fire,
And the life that is worth the honor on earth
Is the one who resists desire.

By the cynic, the sad, the fallen,
Who had no strength for the strife,
The worlds highway is cumbered today;
They make up the sum of life.
But the virtue that conquers passion,
And the sorrow that hides in a smile,
It is these that are worth the homage on earth
For we find them but once in a while.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Nothing's Up, lol

We're just hanging around the house. It's been wacko weather, as I'm sure everyone in the country can attest to. There was an ice storm a few days ago, and then more snow covering the ice. Now it's snowing again.

I've just been keeping myself busy with making pillows. I made Gabey another car pillow, and I'm stocking my little shop with pocket pillows.
