I don’t know if it was the computer sabbatical we went through or just the quiet time but for some reason  I just can’t get back into blogging right now.  I’ve attempted several times but unless the Lord leads my heart differently I think I’m finished blogging for a long while.  Don’t worry though I will continue to keep records of my kids antics!! Who knows might get them all published someday–  we definitely have some crazy adventures around here!!!

Still Out of Comission

Friends….  thanks so much for checking up on me!!  We’ve been experiencing one of the “when it rains it pours” seasons.  I have a list of things that have had to have repairs or are still broken. It’s all right though, because it seems we see God’s hand in very special ways during these times.  

Our computer did make it back a few days ago, however I’ve learned it’s quite a task to reinstall everything. Sadly we’re are still experiencing a few problems with our internet connection.  We may need to send our computer out again.  So it will be awhile before I’m back.  Hope to get back to normal soon!  Love YOU!

My Mac Crashed!!!

Just letting you guys know… we came home from Christmas festivities and my computer crashed. (I’m on Steven’s at the moment.) We’re not worried about the computer, our warranty is GREAT!  However I am a bit frazzled at the thought of losing our holiday pics  and all my itunes music I hadn’t backed up =(.  Anyway we’ll be shipping our computer out Tuesday from the closest Genius Bar (apple users know what I’m talking about). I’ll be off the blog until it gets back probably in two to three weeks. Blessings to you!!!  I know I’ll miss reading about your lives as well as sharing mine.  Take Care!

Bit of Honesty…

I don’t know about you but ever since Thanksgiving came and went I’ve been in a dead run to get everything “done” for the Christmas season.  Parties to attend, events to plan, people to call, recitals to organize, shopping to accomplish, food to prepare, cards to address, gifts to wrap, the house to clean, decorations to hang ect… and then even more things to do.  You get my drift I’m sure- it’s been hectic around here!!!!  I’ve found myself praying on the run and missing the stillness of sitting with God!!  A friend asked me how I was via e-mail. My response: “I’m good but missing the joy of celebrating WITH Christ this season. I find myself partying ABOUT Him instead.”  I’m incredibly GRATEFUL that my heart recognizes this void….  I thought this video was an awesome reminder to love the things God loves throughout a season originated by Him and yet one He so easily is left out of.  My friend Meredith posted it on her blog almost a month ago.  I was so glad she shared: Read the rest of this entry »

Really Great Sugar Cookies

Today I’ve been preparing for a 7th and 8th grade girls Sunday school party my co-teachers and I are hosting tomorrow evening.  I wanted to make some homemade sugar cookies with my new pumpkin and leaf shaped cookie cutters.  However, the recipe I’ve used for years I’ve come to be disappointed with.  The dough is yummy but the cookies are just too crisp once baked!!  In my opinion the words “crisp” and “sugar cookie” don’t go together!  Read the rest of this entry »
