Please pray for my children that disappointment will not be lasting and that bumps in the road are just that...bumps. God never sets us up to fail and his plans are so much better than our own.
Had a great errand running time with just Levi. He and I can be down right silly when we want to. I really enjoyed our time together. He even helped me pick out a dress for sissy. She has another Semi-formal affair at school. No worries...Von Maur to the rescue. I found her a beautiful black dress and it's so classic looking. She will love it. I actually bought her 2 dresses because I got one for $23 instead of $90. I love when that happens.
Today was a beautiful day despite the bit of turbulence I felt throughout the day. So tomorrow night I will say goodbye to October and Welcome November with open arms and mind.

http://tipjunkie.blogspot.com/2008/05/im-tip-junkie.html Things to give at Christmas. I love the little rice bags for everyone but my daughter loves giving these to friends with a sleeping mask. The quilt toppers are just fun and everyone loves them.

Mr Webster states that to endure is to hold out, to continue to exist, suffer patiently...to last!
So let that be our theme this week. Whether it be the economy , your marriage, your children , your job, your health, weight, friend, neighbor, school, dinner, etc. Let's endure it all and pray for better days. I feel powerful just saying it. I will endure what comes my way this week.
God tells us in 1 Chronicles 16:34 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his love endures forever.
Now theres some hope ladies. Make this a great week and remember whatever comes at you ...ENDURE.

Sometimes you have to have a mess to get to the good stuff.
Here's the good stuff. Pumpkin butterscotch bread, monster cookies, monster mix and bags and tags of goodies.
Life is that way to sometimes. You know a mess and you have to work through the yuck to get to the good stuff. God can help you do that. So if you're in a mess know that theres some good stuff that can come your way.
Jeremiah 29:11 11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

This guy loves football and this is his first year playing for school and he has loved it. Last night was the last home game and he got injured a couple of weeks ago and still couldn't play. He was so bummed. He is so disciplined when it comes to this sport. He is awesome and we are so proud. Now bubby on the other hand was done with football and we are now getting ready to start Tennis season with him. Coach says he's a natural...who knew?
It's so important to let our children try new things. Just like it's important for us to not get stuck. We need to try new things too. Every New Years Eve we write down things we did this past year that were a first. It's so exciting to see what we have accomplished. Try new stuff it gets your momentum going.
