A wonderful Thanksgiving!!

This was a wonderful Thanksgiving and I have enjoyed being with everyone so much! I got a little stressed out at one point on Thanksgiving...the boys like to push my nerve buttons and then Bradley lost the stone out of his class ring and well to just be honest...I got stressed and had me just a good ole cry!! I have a lot that has been going on and now I am getting things ready for Christmas and I am not gonna wait until the last minute to do my shopping...I want it done and have as little stress as I can!! With so much at school I don't seem to handle stress as well!!
But anyways!!! The tree is up here and the mantle is decorated and my guys are gonna put up the outdoor lights today!!! I love Christmas and I love the decorations!!!

Today I am going to a birthday party for my great niece and then home to spend with the family!! We have lots of time together this weekend and so far I have only had the one melt down!!
You all enjoy your day!!
Love, Hugs and Prayer to each of you!

Thankful these days!

I know...I have been missing in action for this past week and I have not even commented on any ones blog....I am so sorry! I have been just covered up with school work and finally today I have NO school work to do or class to go to so I am free to blog for a minute!!
2 years ago when Justin joined the Marine Corp I already knew that I was so thankful for my family and everyone around me but NOW...I really understand the words "I have so much to be thankful for!!" During this last year I have sent my son off to war and through many many prayers and lots of them from you guys...He made it back safe and sound and really nothing wrong with him!!!
I am so happy to say that I will have my little family all together tomorrow for Thanksgiving!!

I know that I take each day at a time and that we enjoy each holiday as it comes our way and give lots of hugs and tell each other how much we love each other! That "big sand box" will be getting him back mid next year and well I will just enjoy these days together and take those days when they come my way!! So for today my friends:
I will be doing lots of cooking today getting ready for tomorrow! We have Jeff's family gathering at lunch and My family gather for dinner!! So lots of yummy food!!
Enjoy your day and maybe I can get another blog out tomorrow!! :)
I miss my blogging family so much!!
Lots of Hugs, Love and Prayers to you all!!

Not so sure!!

Oh my goodness...I am in a section of my computer class that is taking me to ACCESS 2007!!! I am not liking it at all...I DO NOT understand it!!! I just think that we should be able to skip this section and move on! I have done really well in Word, Excel but this one is gonna kill me!!

I think that this book was made for me...And I think that I will be going and getting it today to see if it will help to understand this program!!! I NEED help and lots of it!!!

So this is what all I have been up too....TRYING to figure out this database type stuff that I am suppose to be learning!!! My brain does not like it and it is NOT retaining it at all!!
I hope you all are doing well!! I miss you all!!! I have lots going on this weekend...We are having out Thanksgiving luncheon at church and well I have so much to be thankful for this year and I he will be here to celebrate it with me!! Yes....Justin is gonna come home and celebrate Thanksgiving with our church family!!! And then he will be back on Wednesday to celebrate it with our precious family!!!
Enjoy your weekend!!
Love, Hugs, and Prayers to you all!!!

My weekend...

To start off with Jeff and Bradley went to Kentucky for a trip this weekend...Bradley has a friend (GIRL) that lives there and she turned 16 and he wanted to go...she came to Georgia for his birthday so Jeff took him! Britani had her SAT test Saturday and well I had two little visitors...ALEX AND AVERY!! They are such a pleasure to have around and they just know they have a special place in my heart forever!!!I love to hug them and kiss them and let them know that I am their favorite AUNT!!! hehe!!!

It is very COOL here and well when it gets cool I get really cold!! I have an old sock that I have rice in and I heat it up in the microwave an keep my feet warm at night and then I have a heating pad that i will be pulling out to keep me warmer during the day...I AM VERY COLD NATURED! And I can tell you if my feet get cold it is over...I just am cold all over then!! I like the cooler weather but it makes me not like to get out much!!
I have got a lot of things done to start getting ready to decorate for Christmas...I think instead of buying a lot of gift I may do a little more entertaining this year...being together is what I have learned this past year is REALLY what is important!!! Thanks to the USMC!!!
So that is about it for me...I got the girls some grits cooked and me some coffee made and we are heading to a birthday party later for my great-niece Jada's 4th birthday!!! Family...NOTHING BETTER!!
You all enjoy your day!
