I love this sign! It used to hang right near my front door, I guess it's packed up somewhere now, When we moved I never have unpacked the things I once had on the walls. Our house is not as cluttered now either. I actually have just gotten up and moving around today and Les was sweeping, I think I am going to neaten my office today before I start working on things, too. It's 45 degrees outside and the sun is shining, I have several things to accomplish...
Make a banana pudding for Homecoming
Get the photos printed I want to add to the photo album
Start on a new book for Lynn
Get my challenges ready for Osten's site
I might even do my taxes, I don't know I might wait until tomorrow for that one
Well off I go to take my bath and get started, I hope you have an Awesome day and I hope to see you Twila at church for Homecoming!

How do you like my new Blog Look? This is a super kit that will be released Sunday at Scrapbook Elements called Thumbody Loves You by Cathy K and it is adorable! I will be making my kids at work Valentines and I will post them for you to see!

This picture is from last week, Snowmen was our theme and Annabelle's Mom brought these pretty snowflake cookies and we watched frosty and made snowflake pictures. Today our theme is Winter and we will be playing dress up with gloves and hats. I will let them match them up, too, that will be fun, I hope.
We really enjoy these Fridays, Next Friday I will be doing Birthday cupcakes so they will sing to me, I will love that!

This is my verse for this week, I Tim 2:1 I hope you will read the rest of the chapter because it is a message for Today!
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God's mercy upon them, and give thanks.

Here are the pictures from the church book of Gina and Charli and Les and I, I ended up using a picture of Trey, Gina and Charli instead, though, he didn't come to get his picture taken so I just used another one, I do like this one, though, she has her Birthday Girl dress on.
All she did was basically sleep yesterday, we always take a nap and she was sleeping about an hour but this week she has been taking a long nap of a couple of hours. I don't blame her today, it was rainy and just a little cool. Great napping weather. She did get excited when she saw Trey and started playing. She sleeps so hot and her hair gets wet and starts to curl. I am glad of that. Grandmama said she looks like Gina.
I am the spotlighted employee this month at work. That's kind of cool, I am blessed with a great boss now and work is fun. Before I was stressed and wondered how I could stay there! Just a personality clash with the director.
I will have a busy week next week, we have revival the first of the week and I have training Thursday. Les and I pretty much celebrated my birthday last Saturday because we are too busy to do anything next week. I have gotten used to Homecoming being right there at my Birthday and I guess Church is the best place to be, the funny thing is last year Les was teaching VBS on his 50th! They did have him 2 cakes and gave him a party though which was great!
Sunday night Jot will be there. He is almost 90 and is one of the funniest and best preachers in this area! I keep trying to get my family members to come hear him but they don't want to get and go to church on a Sunday Night. They are missing the blessing! He drives from Clinton which is about 25 miles away to speak to us. That's something for a man his age! Each time I see him preach I take it in hoping it won't be the last time I see him pull up his pants legs and laugh at himself! He lost his wife in 2008, they were married close to 70 years and every time he preached he would say "Darlin' would you pray for me?" and she would although she had Alzheimer's and a diseased liver. That forever will be in my heart when I think of him!

Had a great day yesterday, I picked Charli up and went to see Grandmama, she hadn't seen her walk yet. Then we came home and took a nap, she thinks she has to sleep on top of me, that's so funny. She lays right down and goes to sleep, though. Gina had to work late and Trey was working on some signs so Les cooked a nice supper and so she and Gina ate with us.
I had to redo the church book a little and add the history. I think the members will really enjoy getting their copies Sunday at Homecoming! I will take it to the printers after work and get them Friday. How exciting to see a book you've done. This is actually my third but the first two were cookbooks I made when I worked at Wal-Mart. One was a fund raiser for Hospice and one for Children's Miracle Network.
My real dream is to do Children's books! I always wanted Jeremy to help illustrate but I don't think that will happen. Maybe I can use my digital skills.
Well off to play with my babies!

I am now at 151 posts! I am proud of myself for keeping up this year!
This is another of my treasures, Gina started me a Willowtree collection. I also give them to her. It's something that's special between us. She got me this one because I teach toddlers. I am finally finished with the church book! I am so relieved! I spent over 20 hours on it and am so tired! I have a friend, Sheila proofing it for me and will take it to the printers after work.
Well that's it for now!

Jeremy is on his way home today! Of course I won't see him but should hear his voice late tonight or sometime tomorrow, he has a short layover in Atlanta and is supposed to be at home in Washington at 7PM there time.
Had a wonderful time with Charli yesterday, didn't get much done on the book, though! I will have to come home and try to get it ready to take to the printer by 5. I got frustrated last night and went to bed! This is her wearing her Pop Pop's hat while watching TV.

A very different share this morning... I made this in elementary school, why I painted it yellow I don't know but I was only 8 or so. Anyway it's one of my treasures. I am going to do some challenges at Dude's place and scrapping your treasures is one of them, I want to be sure when I am gone things won't get donated to charity if they have a family history. I volunteered at the Faith home and saw important awards and things given away!
Les and I had a nice time together in Greenville yesterday, I got a terrific bible that was exactly what I wanted for $35! That was half price, Les had worked on a truck and made $40 to buy my present, so that worked out well. He also bout me a necklace that spells out "GOD" to form a heart in silver and gold, I love it!
Well going to soak in the tub because I have a tiny touch of a headache and I want to work a few minutes on my book.
Gina has training today so we are going to get Charli and take her to church and keep her today, I am looking forward to that, I just need to have the book ready and loaded on a disc for the printer tomorrow.
