A Thanksgiving Poem

Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
But I couldn't sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned
The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation
With all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey, and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, and beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees...
Happy eating to all~ pass the cranberries, Please.

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious.
May your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!!!

Praying everyone has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!!!!

Purple Roses

Yesterday my WONDERFUL husband bought me these beautiful purple roses. The purple roses were the center of decorations for our wedding. I love these roses and they are very hard to find. Most of the time they are not in stores and if you go to a florist you have to order them to get them in.
Well Hubby went to the store to pick some things up for me and bought these beautiful roses just because he saw them:) Thank you so much for roses My Love, I love them and you so much!!!!

Summer Update

Where to begin? So much has happened this summer it is hard to start.
Well let me start by saying that we were so blessed and happy to find out that in the beginning of November we will be welcoming Baby #3 into our family. We are so excited to be having another little boy! Now Little Guy will have someone to wrestle with in a few years and can let his sister be a girly girl:)
The next thing is that we have safely moved all of our belongings into a beautiful place where we can call home while we are on deputation. speaking of deputation, it has been slow but good. God has blessed in many ways and He always meets our every need and many of our desires! so far we have been to many churches in MI, NY, MA, NJ, IN, and KY this summer. We have gone with the desire to be a blessing to the people there and in turn have been blessed by them!!! We are also blessed that in going to all those churches people are seeing the need for Gospel preaching churches in the western side of Canada. God is so good and I could never even begin to tell you all he has done for us!
The last thing is we are getting ready to head home to get ready to welcome the baby into our family.
Since deputation requires that my husband use the computer to make calls to Pastors during the day, it is not often that I am able to get on here to write anything. I usually get on long enough to read what everyone else is doing with their families. But I will try in the next few days to post pictures of our summer adventures for all to see:) Till then I must go!

Cheese Ball Thoughts

Today I was making a cheese ball for the family gathering tomorrow while my babies played at my feet. That is when the thought came to me. I am so blessed to have two Beautiful, Healthy children (with one on the way:) that have the ability to play at my feet.
For some babies don't have the physical capability to play on the floor, or anywhere for that matter. And then some don't have Mommy's to play at the feet of. Then there are also some who would love to be a mommy and have children under foot but do not have the ability to have babies of there own.
That was when I realized yet again how truly blessed I am to have the family that I have. I have a wonderful husband who is a constant source of strength and stability for me. I also have two children who have no physical problems. I am also blessed to be expecting baby number 3 for our family. God has blessed me more then He ever should have. Not only has he given me a home in Heaven, but he has given me a little glimpse of heaven every time I look into my babies eyes.
So that is my cheese ball thought:) I am truly blessed!!!!

Disney World trip

Last month my Hubby and I did a "Give a Day, Get a Day" For Disney and was able to go to Disney for free. Then because we are Fl residents we were able to buy 3 more day for a total of $42 for both of us. And since both of the children are under 3 they were free:) Little Guy had a great time seeing Mickie:)
This is Princess and I waiting for the Toy Story ride:)

Little guy getting to meet Lighting and Mater. He loves the Cars movie and loved meeting them:)
They also each got buttons for being there. Little guy wanted to wear his for the next couple of days and Princess just wanted to eat hers:)

My newest Creations

My wonderful Hubby took some of our tax money and bought me a new sewing/embroidering machine! Here are some of the things I have made for some friends that are having babies.

I also made a large receiving blanket. Someone made some for me when I was having my son, and now I try to make some for others. This time I was able to put the baby's name on it:)
And isn't the stitching darling? I love it!!! My old machine only did simple sewing so I am having a ball going to town making everything I can think of:)

Spending the AM in the ER

This morning I had to take our Princess to the ER:) She had been throwing up since Wednesday and did not look good. All day yesterday I gave her Gatorade and nursed her, but she was still not doing good. While we were there they took some blood and determined that she has a stomach flue and was dehydrated. They gave her an IV and she was not very happy about it:(
Her only comfort was her cup on Gatorade.
When that was done, she went to exploring what they had put on her hand and arm:)
As sad as it is, she looks so cute in a baby hospital gown! We are home now and she seems to be doing much better, Praise the Lord!!!!

Watching the Manatees

A couple of weeks ago we took the kids to see the manatees. There is a place near Tampa where the manatees come in when it is cold, because the water there is always warm. It was really cold that day and there was around 100 manatees along with some stingrays and small sharks.
Here you can see the manatee from above.
This is the nose of a manatee peeking out of the water:)

It was so neat to see the manatees "in the wild" and I think my Hubby and I had more fun then the kids:)

A Memory Quilt

About a month ago I was hired to make a Memory Quilt for a lady. It was my first one and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. It was not as much work as I thought it would be, but I also had some help for my Mom. She does not sew at all but she helped me with laying the squares out, which was a BIG help. Here is a picture of the woman's clothes. Her sister hired me to do make it. The lady had died of cancer this summer, so this was very special!!
Here is the finished quilt. Every square was cut from her clothes.
Her favorite colors were tan and Kelly green, so I made the backing tan and I used green bias tape and thread for the ties and trim.

Since the woman I was making it for was giving it to her Mother for Christmas I also made her a small wall hanging for her to keep. The buttons also came from one of her shirts.

I really enjoyed making this and look forward to making another one.

A Rose and Two Cuties

I had a beautiful rose and two beautiful children so I decided to try and take some pictures of them. Little Princess was more interested in playing with it then posing, but Little Guy was really cute about it:)

She tried to eat it a few times and was very disappointed that I would not let her:)

I think this one is my favorite. I just with he had on a cute outfit and not just play clothes, but his face is priceless!!!!!

The Grand Debut

Little Guy had his grand debut this year at out church Christmas party:) He was so cute!!!
At the end of the show Pastor had everyone in the program go back on stage. He said Little Guy and the other little 2 year old stole the show:) I completely agree!!!
Here are pictures of his time on the stage singing Away in the manger.
