Summer Happenings

Well, it has been an interesting summer.  We have been keeping very busy with the grandchildren and homestead projects.  We are gearing up for school to start in August.  Well...at least it is on this old momma's mind.  The scholars will be returning to the Christian school this year, as hubby is blessed with classes!  I am sad thinking of them being away, but happy that the scholars are with their dad.  By the way...we are down to the last four in school!!!! 

The young ladies have been babysitting nieces and nephews this summer.  They have also been staying several days at the siblings home "just because".  The young men have been helping out at the church off and on with weeding, cleaning a shelter house, etc.

Hubby has been the taxi driver for the family...I have been keeping busy with card projects for my ministry and Summer Bible Conference.  I need to make a couple of sheets for our Granddaughter E, but they are quick to whip up so I keep putting it off.  Not to m…

May News!!!

May brought many changes!  We added a new granddaughter to our arms!  Granddaughter E, or EJ, was welcomed to the world on May 19, 2017 at 6:52 PM, weighing in at 7 pounds and 1 ounce, 19 inches long.  She was about 4 1/2 weeks early, but is doing well.  Even at the larger size she has had a few preemie issues, but we expected that!  My pictures are on my phone and I have no idea of how to get them to my computer!!!  I can be technology challenged at times. 

May also brought the graduation of our twins!  Son #6 and Daughter #4 graduated on May 26!  These are their Senior pictures that were taken about 2 weeks prior to graduation.  I am in the process of looking for the pictures I took at graduation and can. not. find. them. ERRRR!!!!!





Since my technology skills are being challenged at the moment, I think I will end this post  here and see if I can have dear Hubby locate my pictures for me!  I will be back...............

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back! 

Busy Inking

My days have been busy inking and stamping.  Most of what I have made I have pictures of....some I just plain forgot...sorry








March Madness

....No, this has nothing to do with basketball.  It does however have to do when the "ball is in my court".  Let me explain.....

One of my favorite blogs is Deep Roots at Home.  Jacqueline is such a blessing.  I have met and talked with her at the home school convention we have attended in the recent years.  You feel like you have shared an afternoon and a cup of tea with her after talking for only a few minutes. 

While reading  Jacqueline's blog today, her post from February 27 was amazing.  I have read the short story she has posted some time ago.  It brought back to mind what I need to do when "the ball is in my court".

You see, the last several months plus have been weary.  We have had some major set backs.  Set backs that only God could take care of for us.  Most were never mentioned outside the family.  Some we needed direction and we asked questions.  A couple were shared only with someone close; one shared as a prayer request.  ALL taken to the throne …

Card Creations

...sigh...I have been busy making cards off and on.  I am getting better at taking pictures, just slow at blogging them.  I am suppose to be cleaning house...going to meet our daughter-in-love-to-be's mom this afternoon/evening.  Me...I addressed a few cards to college students...okay...12 of them.  Okay, I was writing a note to them!  Then I decided I wanted to learn how to knit...so I watched a video on YouTube and tried for about 20 minutes...got frustrated and gave up...only for the day!

Now, I decided that I may want to take a few minutes and post some cards.  So this will be quick...sort of...
