I am so thankful to the Lord above for allowing us to get science fair projects done. They are not wonderful per say, but not a tidal wave project among the bunch. ;).
The boys have been under the weather. They are doing much better, yeah!
Elisabeth has been going through her "I don't want to phase." We are taking care of that, but potty training is done!! I am so excited for that.
My mother-in-love made Elisabeth some beautiful dresses. I wish I could sew. I have started to learn a few times, but always when we were getting ready to move, so nothing "stuck." I will not admit to getting old and the "old dog, new tricks" saying.
Today is just wonderful. That is one thing I am always thankful for...when we must have a "hard day" the Lord gives us a wonderful day to remind us that He is always in control.
I pray you all are having nothing but wonderful days and that you are looking forward to a wonderful Christmas season. One where I pray we remember to remind and share with all the true meaning of Christmas...The celebration of Christ's birth, our one and only Saviour and way to heaven. Luke 2:11 and John 3:16

I am hoping the answer is YES!! Do you feel as though everyone is out to spread as many lies about you as they can? Do you feel like the kind person you know you are (or thought you were) is made out to be a monster? Do you feel as though you can scream and cry because everything you say, wither in joking or not is held against you? Do you just wish you could stay home and never leave again? THEN YOU HAVE HAD MY DAY...WAIT NOT DAY BUT YEAR!! (tears) Nothing we do, and mostly me, is right. I say anything and it gets switched until I have said something wrong, dumb, or hurtful. Yet, no one will ever come to me, that is what my pastor husband is for apparently. I am growing thick skin, but these words from ignorant people still make me bleed. I know the Lord never promised easy tomorrows. I know in the mist of all this craziness, He and my family still love me. I just need this to be over soon. Maybe I am too young and naive to be a Pastor's wife, yet I know this is where the Lord wants me. He will give me His Daily Grace, for today of all days I need it the most. Ish.40:31

Today God gave me the most wonderful gift, no I did not find out I'm pregnant, but it did snow. We had a beautiful snow day and that meant no school!! Not that I got to sleep in, for Elisabeth doesn't do that, but it was nice being a stay at home mom again. I pray the Lord allows me to do this full time, some day soon.
The kids played outside in the snow. Elisabeth looked like a fluffy pink cloud, she was pink and puffy from head to toe. Her brothers did their best to get her involved and go sledding, but she just wanted to stand bossing and holding her spoon. I will try to get the slide show working and you can see for yourself.
Oh, for those of you that I do not have a current address...please e-mail me and I will send you a Christmas card. Oh, with all of my free time...this year, the cards are just family pictures...yeah!! That brings me to my weight issues but that is not for this blog, for our Lord knew how'd I look and made me beautiful to His goodness.
