Yesterday was Timmy’s 5th birthday! Later this week, we will be going to Chuckie Cheese because it is a “big” birthday. For a further explanation of this, click hereto go to my mom’s blog. She wrote an excellent article today on birthdays here at our house.
So far, today we have:
Done our school
Started cleaning and grouting the tile in the bathroom
Done lots of webwork on various sites of ours
Done the dishes
Did the laundry
Straightened the house
We have electronics tonight, and tomorrow will be a new day!
Thanks always for visiting, and please stop by again soon!

Good Morning! I am extremely sorry I have not posted in a few days….we have been really busy!
On Tuesday, we had a birthday party for Joshua and his friends!
Here are some party moments I would like to share:
All together, it was really a lot of fun! We played arcade games, pool, and air hockey, we ate pizza and cake, and had a great time! We will definetely be doing this again!!
Today I Am Thankful For
The beautiful day outside, and the chance of snow flurries this afternoon!
Please pray for my mom, who has not been feeling well.
Please pray for our family, because we have a very full day!
Psalm Chapter 3, Verses 1-10
“Further Benefits of Wisdom -My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”

Happy Monday to all you bloggers and readers out there!
As some of you may know, we celebrated Joshua’s 13th birthday on Friday of last week.
That is why I am a *little* late in getting back to everyday posting!
We have the nice surprise of no water this afternoon! We have a bunch of construction going on around us all the time! They think nothing of shutting off water or electricity without you knowing. Not a nice thing with lots of laundry and dishes plans for the day. Not to mention the painting and puttying as well! *sigh*. Oh well! We must learn to be flexible and use lots of purell huh???
These have totally changed due to no water…….we will be sewing and straightening today instead! We do already have our school done!
What I Am Learning:
It is important to always have things put away for times you don’t expect….. such as
water being shut off.
Please pray for my Mom and new baby “Hercules” that is on the way!
If you have a prayer request(s), please leave a comment so that I can be praying for you!
” 21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. “
I will post again tomorrow!
