Gina is almost 32 weeks now, she has had a shower the last two Sundays and will have one tomorrow at her house. I hope Trey got a lot done this week, she is getting anxious about getting the Baby's room done.
We had Thanksgiving together, Trey and Les fried a turkey and it was great! Gina and I cooked, only Mama ate with us but Jamie came over. We got up at 2AM and went to Anderson, Gina and I really ony took a nap, I have all my major shopping done, just need to mail Jeremy's and make a couple of things.
I will try to do better on posting though!

Almost forgot...had to move my class to a smaller room and lost Lots of space! I was aggravated at first but I will get it like I want it!
Have a great week!

MY ASSISTANT STARTED THURSDAY AND I THINK SHE WILL BE GOOD, THE KIDS LOVE HER!
WELL THAT'S IT FOR NOW!
Sunday, October 21, 2007
She was a strong country woman and I saw her read her Bible and pray. She was a Big influence on my life, giving me scraps of cloth to sew and because of her I made a couple of quilts, she even helped me quilt my first one! She also made aprons to sell to ladies at the mill where she was a weaver. I almost cry when I think about her although she passed away in 1989!
Because of my love for her I created a cookbook to raise money for Hospice, I also did a good bit of work for Children's Miracle network when I worked at Wal-Mart. I haven't been doing as much lately, Church Missions of course and the Faith Home (for substance abuse) I guess it is habit to do these now.
Les gets his stitches out tomorrow and Noel got hers out of her hand but had to have another cast.
Credits include Osten Wilkins tags, heart and journaling box. Digitalgirl Flower and everything else from Ina at Scrapladies.

The kit is called Spook-tacular and is here http://shop.3scrapateers.com/shopexd.asp?id=3622
I knew I wanted to scrap Gina's dance picture from 1988 and when I saw the bats I had to do a page with Gina and Les! They so LOVE vampire movies. Both my kids are as addicted to movies as their Dad, I rarely watch a whole movie, unless Owen Wilson is in it!
BLOGGIN' WITH CARLA PROMPT
Miss Jane did the Wednesday Prompt, what did we eat today, I will do yesterday and say not a lot. I have finally convinced myself to cut down on Pepsi! I drank a can and half a 24 oz bottle, I guess Les picked up my bottle because it's gone and I didn't finish it. I snacked on candy coated pretzels left from Sunday's Church Baptism and ate the sub sandwiches I had left with chips. I also has 2 Yougart drinks, that's my healthier substitute for Pepsi and lots of water. I am sure I ate more than that but it's 5AM and I really don't remember!
Les is very tired after his surgery and Noel is doing much better.
Also I have my AM hours back starting Wed. Oct. 17!

.This is Maeson, she is one of those kids I wish I could keep in my class for a long time! She attached to me and calls me MAMA, she loves to sit in my lap and even tries to push anyone else out of my lap! I Loved this outfit she had on and took several pictures of her, I used Cathie's kit "Precious" I thought it looked pretty good with the nice color and texture, Love the torn paper and Beads!
Tonight I took my Mom out for her Birthday. She turned 67 yesterday. I really had a nice time.
Our prompt from Carla is to tell your fears, I can't say there is anything I am really afraid of physically, I enjoy photographing insects so they don't bother me, I wouldn't hold a snake or anything but they don't bother me, I used to be afraid to sleep if I had a mouse in the house because my Mother would tell me stories about having rats in their first apartment and how she was afraid they would get in my crib, grew out of that one. So I don't know. If I fear any situation I pray about it to calm myself, that works well for me.

Meanwhile a precious woman at work passed away this weekend! Her name was Rosa and she was a True Christian Lady! Even some of the Parents at school cried when they walked in to see her empty desk! I am blessed for knowing her!

Amanda wanted to see something I crocheted so here the dress and blanket I made my niece Nicole last year. I am doing a blanket for Gina but need to find the yarn I want for a dress and thinks. I must go out of town to get any variety.
I spent awhile yesterday downloading a Blog Party kit from the wonderful designers at Digital Scrap Boutique. It is Fabulous!

Today was cooler so i took out the babies for about 30 minutes. This butterfly seemed to play with them! He would fly around and then come back to let them look at him. Then he would fly over their heads and go back. It was funny to watch and I really loved it. got some nice pictures!

Just a quick post. I am up way too late, talked to Jeremy quite awhile tonight, was nice to talk and have plenty to say! Chatted with Dude and friends, I love his chats, Miss Jane was there,.
Anyway our prompt it how much time we spend on computer and I am ashamed to answer this! It is often over 6 hours a day! More on weekends! WAY TOO MUCH!
I am working on things for presents, crocheting a blanket now for Gina.

I sat in the car today crocheting and enjoying the rain.
It has started cooling down to the high 80's and the rain was so enjoyable. I had a headache so wasn't very social and Les had a meeting so I sat until it was time for church services.
Yesterday Les was supposed to have a nerve block. I took off work and went with him. His blood pressure was Very high and they would not do it. It is rescheduled for 9/11.
Gina cut my hair today. I told her that her Dad called her "Mini Me" because she fussed at his just like me about not taking his meds! She asked him what was he going to do if he had a stroke.
I have to laugh at how much she is like me!!
Monday, August 27, 2007
I went with Gina and Sissy looking at cribs and things yesterday. I so enjoy watching Gina as she gets bigger!
At least it is only supposed to get to 89 today and all week we are supposed to get thunderstorms and RAIN! She has been so hot and uncomfortable!
Mama called me worried because she found out I was having trouble breathing, I wish she would not worry! She thinks I keep things from her. Les says he didn't say anything but I don't believe him... I think he just spoke and doesn't remember!
ANYWAY our prompt is about magazines ans the only Magazine I get is a scrapbooking one which I go through over and over. I Love magazines and often by old National Geographics or other ones and go through cutting up and saving. I have file folders with ideas an recipes.

My grand dog is back home... Gina and Trey decided to let us bring him home now, he won't be a good dog around the baby so he came home Monday. Gina is saying goodbye so I snapped this picture. Sometimes she looks pregnant and sometimes it's a little hard to tell.
Tye and Pup are getting along very well, Pup is staying inside more now!
Wednesday, August 22, 2007
Well, our first grand is a girl! Gina is disappointed but I am not,not I can find those great girly crochet patterns and give her the things in my chest that were hers!
I am ashamed that I didn't post for Jeremy's birthday, it is so hot here and I have been doing double shifts and not sleeping well so I was worn out! We had a few huge raindrops today then nothing..
Monday, August 20, 2007
Les and I had a wonderful dinner with Gina and Trey. We also brought home our Grand dog, Tye. Trey is worried the baby is going to make Tye jealous and his will bite. He has bitten Jordon and Cody so he is right. I am happy to get him back. Gina is going to really miss him!
Finally posted my Elvis page at 3S, wanted to take pictures of some of Gina's collection, just did not want to unpack! I still have my 45's, too. Maybe I will add that to my scrap later list!

I had an email from Tina Williams today, it was so good to hear from her! Her son is in Army now and is going through basic in Ga. That's where Jeremy went. It is hard to believe it's been 2 years now! ANYWAY Tina has a great site and I will put a link with my other friends. She has an AWESOME freebie and great commercial items. I used to design with her kits and love her work!
Les talked to Jeremy last night, he graduated from leadership school and will be E5 now, a Sargent, I think, and have men under him. Tuesday is his 27th birthday and have him on my mind a lot!
Saturday, August 18, 2007
Well, I am pretty proud of myself for getting my Blog looking pretty good!
Took this at work Thursday, we have to go out in the early morning because by 9:45 it is too hot and we have to take the kids in! The heat index has been 105 and 107! The temps are over 100 everyday!
Still have to work on an Elvis page for Carla's challenge!
Better go find something before I am too late!

Ok My first blog "assignment" is to tell 5 people I would like to meet...
Amanda, I think President Bush would be an awesome person to meet! I really feel for him and pray for him often! I was watching how much he has aged lately with all the stress on him. He's #1.
2. Owen Wilson is one of my favorite actors so I will say he would be someone I would enjoy meeting, especially if Luke was with him!
3. Mercer Meyer is my third person because I really love his children's books and would like to see his studio and original drawings.
4. Max Lucado is another author I would enjoy meeting, he is such a talented Christian writer and I would imagine a very interesting person to talk to.
5. I think the fifth person would be Carla at 3S to spend a couple of days so she could give me some pointers about my PSE4. We are the same age and probably have a lot in common and I am sure I would learn a good bit and have a great time!
Well this is my first post, I will get my site looking like I want as I get a few spare moments!
