Christmas with My Family

Wednesday, December 26th, is when my Family had our Christmas. All of us were there, accept My oldest Brother Michael and His Family and my Nephew Douglas. We all had a good time and enjoyed our time together. Tom and I ended up getting sick before we left that night. I was very thankful that our Christmas get togethers were all over, before we got sick.

Christmas Day, Tom and I had our Christmas together. I fixed Christmas Dinner and my Mom and Dad, sisters, Rachel and Julie and my brother Danny came. After dinner we just sat around talking and laughing. We had a wonderful time.
The menu consisted of: Ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, homemade noodles, corn, cole slaw, cottage cheese and rolls. Yummy:)

The Past Week

This past week has been a busy, but fun week. Last Friday, I took my niece Maegan, scrapbooking with me and then she stayed all night. The next day, we went and decorated our Churches Christmas Tree, in our Fellowship Hall. After that she went home, and she DID NOT want to go. She begged me not to call her Daddy to come and get her. She was very upset that she had to leave. I did tell her that she could come and stay with me again. This week I had Ayden for 3 days instead of the 2. He is a character. His parents are having a house built, and should be moving in this weekend. We went there today to take His Daddy some lunch, but I did not get him out, for I knew He would not want to leave with me. He started crying, and saying that "Daddy needs me help". Poor little guy. You never know what He is going to say.
Below are some pictures from my week. Enjoy!!

Christmas Decorations

Wanted to share with you my Christmas Tree and decorations. I live in a small apartment, so it is hard to have a lot of decorations setting out. Here is what I do have and I love it. Enjoy!!

Thanksgiving Day was a busy day for us. We had dinner with my family and then went to my husbands family for Supper. My brother Michael and his wife Trish, had dinner at their house this year. Altogether I think there was 24 of us. Some of my sisters and one brother could not be there. We did have a good time and great food. At my husbands family there were 9 of us. I really enjoyed spending time with my Sister in law Lenita. We do not hardly get to see each other, and was great seeing her.

My Mom is OK. She got out of the Hospital Late last evening. All of her test results came back fine. When she was in the Hospital, one of my nieces, Courtney, called her and she told Grandma that "she was probably just getting old". Courtney is one of the sweetest little girls. She was very serious when she told this to Grandma. Thank for praying.

Please Pray

I would like for you to Pray for my Mom. She is in the hospital, and is going to have a stress test. So far they have not found anything from the test they have taken so far, but want to make sure that everything is fine. Will keep you posted on what we find out. THANK YOU:)

Thank You

I know this is late but...
Thank YOU to all of the VETERAN'S. If it wasn't for them, would our Country be a "FREE" Country? I am so thankful, that we do have Men and Women who are WILLING to fight for us. Some people may protest about our Men and Women being over Seas, but they are not realizing, how they are protecting us.

My Dad fought in WWII. He has told us some stories about His life in the Army, some that are not so good, and some that make you laugh. He will not talk so much about the fighting part, but He did say, that at one point, He prayed to God, that if He would get Him safely home He would serve Him. He got home safely, but He did not start serving God right away. He later got saved, and has been serving God for over 50 years.

Church Wiener Roast and Pastor Appreciation

The past couple of weeks has been busy for our Church. We had our annual Church wiener roast and then this past Sunday was our Pastor Appreciation Day. We are so blessed to have Pastor Kenneth Teter and His wife, Deloris, has our Pastor. They are the sweetest couple. They have been at our Church for 34 years. They have not always been my pastor, only for the last 8 years. It seems like they have always been though. Right now, we could not ask for a better Pastor.

Below is pictures of the wiener roast and pastor appreciation. My digital camera was not working when we actually presented them with their gifts, I had to use my film camera, so those pictures are coming later, when I get my film developed.

Things that I like to do...

Fall is one of my favorite time of year, and I think that it is finally here. There for awhile, I was wondering if it would ever come. I hope everyone enjoys it as mush as I do.
Gale has given me a challenge to list some things that I like to do, so here they are.

1. In the fall have a wiener roast and sit around the fire with Family and Friends.

2. Scrapbooking is a hobby that I love to do. Recently I have been going to a scrapbooking extravaganza and love it. Each time it is for 5 hours. I am now starting up a Scrapbooking Women's Fellowship, for the ladies of my Church. Should be fun.

3. Doing my Home and Garden Parties. I love to meet new people and to share the things that I love. Since I have been doing this, I have met so many new people and made so many new Friends. Some who feel like family and I can count on just like they were my family.

4. Spending time with my Nieces and Nephews. I like to spoil them and then send them back to their parents. I can really never tell them NO when they want all the sweets and pop. My brothers and sisters still love me when I do this.

5. Riding 4 wheelers with my husband. I also like to go and watch him race his 4 wheeler. I am not as daring as he is, but like some challenges. One thing that I do not like to do, is get into the mud. A few weeks ago I did get stuck, and almost freaked out. I had to have someone get it out for me, so I didn't get the mud on me.

For now, this is all I can think of. It is late and my mind is not working properly.

So Funny

Today, I was watching Ayden, and he had gone upstairs. On his way down, he fell. After that I told him that he could not go back up. He kept wanting to, so I told him that he could, but when he was ready to come down, he had to holler for Becky. He went up, and a few minutes later, I heard him yell "holler". Tom and I started laughing. Instead of saying "Becky", he said "holler". Kids are so funny and never know what they are going to say. I know all of you "Mom's" already know that.

The Weekend

This past weekend, my sisters, Rachel and Julie were home from Virginia. Our family got together and had a weiner roast. It was a fun time and enjoyed our visit with everyone. Below is some pictures of our fun evening. Also on Friday, I took my niece Cynthia scrapbooking. She really enjoyed it, so here is a picture of her with the pages that she did.

Home and Garden Party

This past Monday, I had the privilege of going to Lima OHIO, to meet the founders of Home and Garden Party, Steve and Penny Carlisle. No this is not the first time to meet them, but it is always a pleasure to see them. While there, Steve and Penny, presented one of the Designers with a brand new MERCEDES. Sheila is the FIRST Designer to win this. Each designer, has a chance to win one, but it does take time. My goal with HGP is to win a Mercedes. ONE OF THESE DAYS, I will have one :)

I have a very special Prayer Request, that I would like for you to keep in your prayers. It is for my In-laws, but right now I cannot go into details, but PLEASE Pray. I know that God WILL answer Prayer.

My sweetie, Thomas, turned 33 on August 23rd, and Ayden turned 2 on August 23rd. Ayden is our friends little boy, and loves Tom. We went shopping and then out to eat for their birthdays, and all day Ayden kept telling Tom "Happy Birthday".

Perry County Fair Booth

As promised, here are the pictures of my Home and Garden Party booth, that I had at the Perry County Fair.

My Crazy Life

This week my life is very crazy. I am working our local Fair, for my Home and Garden Party. I have a booth set up to get parties, bookings and recruits. I have had a couple of girls to help me these two days, but for the rest of the week, I will be on my own from 1oam to 10pm. I guess I really don't mind, but it gets very tiresome. At nights, when I get home from the Fair, I am helping my husband make cornhole bags. He sells these on ebay, and right now we are swamped with orders. He has been doing these for almost 2 years now. Hopefully, next week, my life will get back to normal. I will post pictures later of my booth:)

90% better

Well for the past two weeks, I have been battling a sinus infection. I had lost my voice for a little over a week, and just now able to talk. I am feeling 90% better. Sunday in JR Church, the kids were making fun of me for not being able to talk. They are characters. I have a few days of medication left, and hopefully I will 100% better. Other than being sick, not much is going on in my life right now. Coming in July, I will be very busy and wishing for the slow days of June:)
