Fun with the Girls!

I have been so into my school that I haven't seen much of anyone lately! I knew they were having Avery's Fall Festival yesterday and so I planned on attending! Alexis wanted to come and spend the day with me and so I went and got her early and she and I went off to the pre-school to visit with Avery!! I stopped and got Alexis a Dorothy costume and she was so darn cute in it and Avery was a Barbie Princess and I sure enjoyed seeing her and getting some real love from her!!

They went on a hayride!! And they LOVED it!!

They played pin the buttons on the scarecrow!!

Look at that precious!!

And this was one of my favorite photos...I caught a bubble in the corner and she was just trying to catch all the other bubbles!

So it was a wonderful day...Avery came back home with me and Alexis and spent the rest of the afternoon! Tracy came to pick up Avery and I got a good hug from Alex too!! It was a GOOD day!!
Justin got a few days leave...A friend of his died on Thursday from a heart attack! He was only 21..I just can't imagine loosing one of my children! I know people do it everyday!! But God knows my strength...he knows the ones that can handle that and he knows that I am not one that could handle that at all!!
You all enjoy your day....Hugs, Love and Prayers to you all!!

My Favorite...

Oh...I have recently signed up to receive a magazine in the mail...something I don't normally do but, Tracy has been getting this one for a while and I always enjoyed looking at it and well the Parrish children were selling magazines for school and so I ordered my own subscription!! I got it yesterday!!


With school and everything else going on I don't have alot of time but I really enjoyed sitting and looking at this magazine yesterday!! With me back in school our funds have been cut and so it had some really good money saving ideas...NEED THAT!!! I love the recipes that it has in it and well it is just my favorite!!
I am really ready to start my decorating for Christmas...My favorite time of the year!! It won't be a big Christmas around here this year but we will all be together!!! And to be honest...That is ALL that matters anyways!! My poor husband hates when I get ready to put up the tree cause I think that as soon as November gets here I should start putting it up...I love it and I like to be able to enjoy it more than a couple of weeks!! When do you all start decorating for Christmas?
Enjoy your day...Hugs, Love and Prayers to you all!!!

Fall Festival 2010 and a few other things!

Well it is about darn time this blogger thing let me upload some pictures and get a blog!!!
We had our Fall Festival for the 13th year in a row and well Jeff and I have only been in charge of it for 2 years now but have been helping out with it for all the other years!! We do it each year in memory of James Womack!! He was a man that I for many years knew and he passed away 4 years ago and he is truly missed!! But we keep his memory alive by doing things that he always did...Fall Festival being one and the other being the Valentines Banquet!!!

I fixed up a little area and took my Justins picture...He is so handsome!!

We had a bonfire and cooked hot dogs and roasted Marshmellows!!! YUMMY!!!

And we got Jeff's truck towed to the house an well it about makes me sick everytime I walk by a window and see it!! The adjuster finally has called and well they will be starting work on it by the end of the week!!! Wally was out checking it out and he was so thankful that Bradley wasn't hurt!! But can't believe that his daddy's truck is so messed up!!! Now he can't ride in it to go to the dump...He is so sad!! Poor Wally!! But we did get a rental car today so no more trying to find a ride!!! Praise the Lord!!
And well Ganky did not get to see Justin the last visit but she got some extra hugs in this time and even a few pictures and Justin HATES picture time!! But he did it for his Gank!!!
So that is about it for me...School and cleaning and cooking and laundry is about my life now!!! I hope that you all are doing well!!!
Love, Hugs and Prayers to you all!!

Thank you Jesus!!

This is my Bradley and he always loves to make a goofy face for the camera!!! He is so silly and yet such a tough fella and then yet so tender hearted!! He is just MINE and I love him so much and well he has had an experience this weekend and I am just glad that he is ok and that to me is all that matters!! He has his first wreck yesterday!!! A church van pulled out in front of him and he tried to not hit them but he just couldn't help it!! He did not get a scratch on him...he is a little sore but for the most part...He is good!!
But can't say that for Jeffs truck...It is messed up!! But it is replaceable and my son isn't!! So therefore I thank Jesus!!!

The fall festival went well I have picture and will tell about it maybe tomorrow!! I wasn't in the mood for it but well It went good and so glad that it is over!!!

You all have a wonderful Sunday!!

Hugs, Love and Prayers to you all!!

I am learning so much at school and I have lots of home work and books to study and papers to type and well still take care of my family!!!

So I see everyone is getting ready for the holidays and things decorated for fall!! Not me...I have not thought about any of it!! I just know that my son is coming home this weekend and I can't wait to see him!!! I know that he will be home for the holidays this year!! YAYYY!!! I am very excited about that...Never know the the USMC so I take what I get!! Here one year...Gone the next!! UGH...the roller coaster they put me through!!

I am getting things together in my spare time for the fall festival at church this weekend!! I have so much on me I am wishing that I had not taken this on...but I did so I will get it done with the help of so many other people from church!! It will loads of fun and then I will be so happy that I did it!! :0

Robert, Jenna, and Bradley....They have been with each other for 7 years and will graduate together this year...they are so close and have so much fun together!

This is the show team that showed this weekend from Newton County FFA!! Well the little on the the red boots did not show but she does show a goat!! Her daddy is the FFA teacher!! :)

What I am up to today!!

I am up and got me a big ole cup of coffee and and loving every sip of it!! I have ONE cup every morning and sometimes a Latte later in the day!! I Love my coffee and I enjoy having just my one cup...

while I sit and check out everything on the computer!! I find myself not getting on as much now that school is in and can I just tell you school is going really well!! I get on here and check out the blogs, face book and my email (personal and school)!!!

And today I will be doing a test that my teacher gave me to bring home and do! It is a total of 260 questions and not as easy as you would think with it being a bring home test! It is on 2 chapters and I will be working on that all day today!! Yayy!!

I love my life and yes it does have bumps and crashes in it but in the end...Everything is OK!!
My Marine will be coming home tomorrow for a few days!!! I can't wait, it seems like it has been for ever since I have seen him!! The USMC asked him to volunteer to go back for a year in Afghanistan and THANK GOD he gracefully declined!! He said he just couldn't do that to his family again!! But if they don't get enough to volunteer they may make him so...
Keep Praying...IT WORKS!!
Enjoy your day!!

He has a huge heart!!!

He being my Bradley...He is such a sweet fella and loves everyone!! He is very tender hearted when it comes to those he loves!! He is just a sweet sweet guy!! (even if he is mine!)
Last week he went to the doctor because he had a cold and ended up with strep throat and they also found out he has a heart murmur! Yeah no big deal...lots of people have those! So we went back to the doctor for an ultra sound!! And sure enough he does have the murmur and it is not just ONE leaky heart valve it is TWO!!! Doctor say no need to worry we will just keep an eye on it and he is young and strong and he will be just fine!!

As you all know there is always something going on for me and so this wasn't really any different except that it is about my babies heart...I still worry!!
My day yesterday was a much better day and I am loving my classes!! Going to the computer lab this morning to work on stuff and then class this afternoon!! I hope that each of you have a wonderful day!!

Well it should say...

It should say my name instead of Alexander!!
Cynthia and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day!!!

My day yesterday was just horrible!!! It started out great and then progressively got worse as the day went on...but before bed it got a little better!!
I started school yesterday and well I felt like I needed to go and check on my financial aid and well it is a good thing that I did!!! I had been purged from all of my classes due to a missing piece of paper for financial aid!! I was just so upset!! I had scheduled out my work and I has scheduled out things for dinners and kids and husband and well just life!! So I got the missing paper work done and had to go and re-register...NO CLASSES AVAILABLE!!! I just spent 314 dollars in books...I am gonna take these classes!! Well I got into one and then this very nice lady after about 2 hours of trying to get in the other 2 classed she was able to get me in on the online classes...NOT what I was wanting but I can deal with it as long as I get my classes in!!
I came home and thankfully had a pot of chili in the crock pot and so I didn't have to deal with cooking!! :) I sat and worked on the computer so I can do my online classes and I still can't because I need Microsoft Works 2007!!!! about 150 more dollars...and I just don't have it and so therefore I am trying to borrow it and download it and then I will be good to go!! SO then I decided I would try one more time to get into one of the classes that I feel like I really need to be there to learn how to do everything that will be taught in this class!! And what do you know...I AM IN!!!! I have to be there at 8:10 this morning and I am so excited!!
So...That was my day and as I sat and read all the blogs this morning...trying to catch up!!
I realized...It was just school and so many out in blog world are having so many problems and need so many answered prayers at this point I felt horrible for complaining about my day!!! At least we are all healthy!!
Enjoy your day!!

Well, I have not seen this sweet face in several weeks now!! I am glad that he has friends and is having fun and not traveling up and down the road so often, BUT....I MISS HIM!! I have friends going up to CLJ today and so they offered to take Justin a few things for me!! He wanted a coffee pot and peanut butter bars and a peanut butter cake!! So I got him a coffee pot and baked his goodies and got it all ready to go!!

He will be so happy!! He still loves all the stuff from home but just is such a long drive to get it! UGH!!! But he will be home next weekend...He has a birthday coming!! My baby will be 21 on October 11. !!! I told him yesterday he can't be 21...I am only 29!! :)
