A toothache!

No not me...My husband! He has been dealing with a toothache and if i knew how to pull me I would! We have an appointment this morning to let someone look at it and hopefully pull it...Or I am gonna run away!! I know that it hurts and I know that it is about the most unbearable pain EVER so I am trying to have lost of patience!

So please pray that they will be able to pull it today and it not cost me an arm and a leg but if it does I will gladly give them both to get this toothache fixed!! :)

You all have a great day!!

Hugs, Love, and Prayers to each of you!!

Fun Times/Lazy Times

We had a little bit of snow here and well when we do we shut down EVERYTHING!!! Us Southerners DO NOT know how to drive in just a half inch and so therefore we had no church yesterday! SO I WAS BUM!!! I did not a lot of anything...I did cook dinner!! But that was about it!
The one thing that I did do was play this!!

Ganky and Pa gave it to us for Christmas and OMGoodness it is the most fun ever!! Britani, Granny and myself have played so many times!! I am addicted!! I get up wanting to play and all through out the day and then before I go to bed!! I may need to go to Scrabble Flash Anonymous!! :)
Well today I will be working on taking down some Christmas decorations and getting the house back to as normal as I can!!

Enjoy your day!
Hugs, Love, and Prayers to each of you!!

Christmas 2010

Here is my Tree!! I love it and I have enjoyed it so much!! I really hate to take it down but I will be putting it back up in July for Justin to have Christmas before he deploys again!

My kids gifts all out from santa!!

And the kids are up and seeing what they got!

The dogs are being curious...they got gifts too!

Justin opening gifts and he got new boots!

And a new knife!

The twins got all kinds of stuff too!! Britani got a TV and Bradley got a XBOX360!!
Every one was very happy!!

Then we moved over to Tracy's to enjoy Christmas with all of them!

Ganky opening a gift from me!!

Just opening a gift so not to tear the paper and gave it to Tracy to use again for him next year!! :)

I got the girls some people and animals...I have no idea what they are but they loved them and that is what matters!!
Well it is over and done...I enjoyed every moment of it!! I LOVED having my Marine home!! It was a perfect Christmas...and then it snowed!! Not too much but it did snow on Christmas!!

Guess who is coming to town?

NO...not time for Santa yet....But it is my Marine!! He is coming in town this evening and I am so excited and feel so blessed to be able to have him home with me this year!

On December 16th of last year he had to leave and go to Afghanistan and well it was a journey that I wish to never take again! I love my children with all my heart and I tell you one thing it hurt so bad to not have him with me for Christmas! I am so thankful for being able to have him this year! I know that I sit here this morning and I am so excited because he will be heading this way in just a few short hours and then once he is here for a day or two my nerves get a little frazzled but I am still so thankful to have him here to help his brother and sister frazzle my nerves!! :) I have bought the groceries for us to have around here to eat...about $200 or more!! A Marine can eat some home cooked food!!!
Well you all enjoy your day!!
Hugs, Love, and prayers to each of you!

The weekend at a glance!

My pictures posted backwards and I am not gonna worry about it!
We have had a very busy weekend but it was wonderful!!

These two little girls came and spent the night with me Saturday and stayed with me at church on Sunday for our Christmas program! They are so special to me and I love them so much!! I am so glad that Tracy and Derek share their family with me!! :)

Alex (on the Left) never cares a lot about sitting with Santa but she just jumped right in his lap and talked to him!!! I was so happy!!

This is a group of the kids that I worked with singing at the program last night!

And here is another picture of Alex and Avery!! So precious!

But Saturday night after we got the girls we went to the store and got some fun stuff to do!! They wanted to bake these cookies so that is what we did!

Alex wanted to do the Christmas tree cookies!

And Avery did the Reindeer cookies!! Both were YUMMY!!

We made the snowmen...They were sticky but so much fun!

And they made these fruity pebble Christmas tree snacks!! They ate some of each thing we made and this was there favorite!

We had Christmas with Jeff's family Saturday morning!! I have a busy week this week...can't believe Christmas is almost here!! :) My kids are so excited! Justin will be here tomorrow and we will get to spend so much time together this year!! I have gone and bought groceries and hopefully it will be enough...$200.00 worth! Maybe it will but I am not so sure!!
You all enjoy your day!!
Hugs, Love, and Prayers to each of you!

Christmas Picture of my Children...BLOOPERS

My Niece over at
did a blog about her four children that are 15, 11, 6, and 4 doing their Christmas pictures. I wanted her to see that even when they are 21, 17, and 17 it isn't any better!! I took so many pictures trying to get the one for my Christmas Cards and I kept on until I got at least this one here that I think is really good and the others are my bloopers!!

Now where did Bradley go...

OH, here he is...

Bradley look at me...Britani open your eyes and Justin, smile right...PLEASE!!

The Boys without Britani and NOT smiling!!

And this a a great picture of Justin but where is Britani and Bradley....Lord help me!!

So, I did this all in one afternoon while Justin was home and we took tons of pictures and out of all of them I got ONE!!!!
Children...Gotta love them!! I am so happy to have them all three gonna be home with me this Christmas and they know that I just love them no matter what!!
You all enjoy your day!!
Hugs, Love and Prayers to you all!

I can't believe it!!

I have to say that with me being 41, I often would question my decision of going back to school and having to learn new things and test every week and then do the finals!!
But I am proud to say I am one more quarter closer to getting my Medical Assistant Diploma!! i have just a little bit more and I will be finished! I have completed all the exams and turned in all my work and I am so proud to say:

"I DID IT!!"

So that is about it for me...needing to find a job to help out with the bills. I am doing some side work to make some extra money so that helps but I do need something more permanent! But God is in control!!
Enjoy your day!
Hugs, Love and Prayers to each of you!

So happy!!

Yesterday I studied all day long...I had an exam and it was over 20 chapters and I knew I needed to pass it!! SOOO I DID!!! I got a 95 on it and I am so happy!! I got my final grade in one of my classes and it is a 86 and the other two have to be finished grading today so I will know about them later! I have a final today in SCT 100 on the computer and then I am finished for the quarter!!

I put in my first resume yesterday! I would like to go ahead and begin working in the medical field and that way I can finish school while working!! Me not working is hurting us financially and I really need to find a job soon!!
It is VERY cold here today and I don't plan on leaving until later this afternoon! I need to get out and find a few more Christmas presents!!
Enjoy your day!
Love, Hugs and Prayers to each of you!

What a wonderful day of the year!

One of my favorite times of the year...CANDY MAKING DAY!!!!!!!

Each year I have a breakfast that I do for my family and then after we eat we clear the table and make candy!! This year we had a new member...Our cousin Debbie and she never cooks so it was a treat to have her!!!

And here is Ganky making her batch of goodies!!
And Tracy made her a special piece of candy....MR. BILL!!

So...Tracy, Ganky and Debbie got all their candy made:
Buckeye candy
White Trash
Rocky Road
So today I will be working on my own batches of the goodies and will add in a few more:
Red Velvet Cake Balls
Oreo Truffles
Last night Jeff and I were not able to attend our traditional family kick off to Christmas at my Nieces celebrating my brother Marshalls Birthday!! We went a work party for Jeff's work!! Lots of fun but would have much rather been with the family!!
Enjoy your day!!
Hugs, Love and Prayers to each of you!!
