This Week's Scripture

"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!

We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Good ol'family life going on over here!
Kylie, a family friend's daughter and our children's friend, has been asking me for the past 6 months to sew her a dress for her birthday and here it is! I dropped it off to Stephanie and Randy yesterday and the party is today!! Happy Birthday, Kylie!!
I have been having a little difficulty on school mornings with getting 7 children ready for school to leave at a certain time every morning. I literally was not looking forward to school mornings!! HOWEVER!!!!! I decided to make a chart and give checks and x's to good or bad behavior and IT WORKS!!!!! It has been just a few days but those few days have been awesome and yesterday the children even had 15 minutes to spare and played some games before we left! So awesome! I will let you know if it continues to work!

I finally have one family album I personalized on snapfish! This book is random pictures of 2005-2006. I love it and can't wait to make some more!!

Tree climbing is the thing these days! I love seeing them up in the trees. It reminds me so much of when I was little! I LOVED being in a tree! They are so cute to watch up there!

Baked some chickens the other day and decided to take a picture! The casseroles are great for me but they just don't work for our kiddos or for Tommy! So back to chicken, rice, brocolli and any other simple dish.
I pray all of you are doing great!!!!! Looks like a little cool front came in last night which any "cool" is welcomed this October. This has been a really hot October so today it should be in the low 70's which we welcome!

Great to have met your new sewing person, thing. lol. And it was so good to see all of you. I know Pop had a great time playing ball with the "kiddos" It's wonderful to see how they can entertain one another. Like with the hot potato. Elijah is learning so much from his brothers and sisters.
Was wonderful to just sit and talk and laugh while watching what the "kiddos" do. Just fun, to be there. Thanks again, for the great Birthday present,,, all.
Sending lots of hugs,kisses and love to all.
