Happy New Year!

I pray that all of you will be blessed more than you can imagine in this year to come! Perhaps not monetarily but with many unsaved family and friends coming into the church this year! I believe the Lord is soon to come, and if we are to see the promises we've all been given come to pass it may very well have to happen in this year! I am looking forward to this year! God Bless and Happy New Year!!!!

No Pictures =(

I forgot my cord at home that connects my camera to my computer, thus, NO Pictures. We have had a wonderful Christmas with lots of surprises! All of us kids had asked for money so Mom had many surprising ways to give it! She put some ones in wet wipe containers rolled up very very very tightly! Stuffed piggy banks full full full of one dollar bills! She wrapped sumo wrestlers in money and small storage containers lined with bills! We had so much fun laughing crying and enjoying time together! And the surprises continued with aunt Kathy arriving at 1:30 IN THE MORNING on Christmas, well technically the day after Christmas. Anyway Grandmom was very surprised to see her and we all did well keeping the secret! I love you all and pray you had just as wonderful a time with all your families!!!

"Happy Birthday Jesus"

Last night was the Christmas Concert at our church! It was a wonderful time of singing and worship. The highlight of the evening for me was to hear my little girl sing her first ever solo! I know I am a bit prejudice but she did awesome! She has worked really hard on it to get it just perfect, and I think it was just that...PERFECT!!! I hope you enjoy this video. The quality is not as good as I'd hoped it would be but you can get a really good idea of how it was.

Making a list and checking it twice......

I am almost finished!!!! I have about 5 or 6 gifts left to buy and it will be all over but the giving!!! Which happens to be my favorite part! I need to find a couple of gifts with the "wow" factor I always love those ones you know they really really want or the really good deal or the one they would never in a million years guess!!! I love this time of year it brings me great joy to give to others, and it makes me ponder what great joy God must have in giving to us as He does!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

What do you want for Christmas???

This is an ever popular question to be asked and to ask during this season. Follow the traditions I asked Alayna what she wanted for Christmas. She looked thought for a minute or two and then said very sincerely, "Mom look in my room and see what I don't have enough of." Well what do you say to that?

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while I have had some technical difficulties and a whole lot of other things going on. Enjoy your holiday season!!!
