Wednesday morning we had a homeschool co-op field trip to a local pizza restaurant. My kids had never actaully been to a pizza place before, so they thought it was great fun. Each table got to put toppings on a pizza, then tour the kitchen while they baked. Pizza was sure good....not a bad mid morning snack!

Taylor had his first Upward game today....too funny! He just was facinated with watching the time clock run. What? I'm supposed to keep my eye on the ball? what ball? did you see that neat clock? Of course, with his hands stuck inside his neat uniform shirt, he couldn't get the ball if it came his way any. A few lessons to learn this week. lol

Five Years Ago in China.....

....a sweet little 15 month old baby girl was placed in our arms. She was crying and confused. She wanted nothing to do with daddy, grandpa or grandma, or big sister. She couldn't turn over from her back to her tummy.

Now, 5 years later, she is the sweetest, funniest, happiest little girl I know. We thank God every day that He placed her in our family

Taylor and LiAnne love to play dress up. Taylor always dresses up like a cowboy, and LiAnne has a whole dresser full of dress up clothes. Today LiAnne spent the day with a friend from church, and Taylor was sad. He said that his bestest friend wasn't home, and could he please play a game on the computer?


Someone asked today what I do to relax on busy I took a couple of pictures of my favorite things to do.

Any questions?

While I'm waiting for the pictures to load today I'll chat. I fixed dinner last night at church--enchiladas, corn, beans and jello cake. I was planning on 120ish, and we ended up having 150! I had plenty of enchiladas, but we ran out of corn. Had two spoonfuls of beans left. It is so hard to guessitmate how many people will come and how much they will eat. I would have had a lot of enchiladas left over if we had only had 120. There are 2 or 3 new families coming to church and bringing their kids on Wednesday for Awana....and they have came for dinner, too, so that was nice. No dinner next week, then three in December before the Christmas break.

I have a bad feeling about the pictures right is taking too long to load them. Let's see if they ever come up.....





We'll, they didn't load correctly, and it looks like I have to resave them another size....have to do that later today. Right now I need to get some sewing done.If you click on the picture it will take you to photobucket where you will see the entire page.

Another YIKES!

Where has the time gone? My daughter and sister keep asking when I'm going to write something here, and it keeps getting put off. I don't imagine that anyone other them them and my mom are still reading, but I will try to do some catching up. I'll start out with the easiest....just posting my 365 pages, then try to add more soon.

Well....I tried. Blogger won't upload my photos right now, so I'll try again tonight after I get back from work/church. Enchiladas, beans, corn and cake for 120 coming up.

We enjoyed a short visit from our friends Dan and Donna from Oregon. It is always so much fun to get together with friends that we don't get to see very often. Our friendship, based in Christ, just picks up where we left off last time we were together.
