This time of the year really is so wonderful. Having kids has even enhanced the excitement of this time. They yell at every light they see. Ruby even was super excited when she saw the tacky stockings on the light poles at a local Publix. And the music is fun. I can’t tell you how many times I play Jingle […]
Friday night Josh and I went to our Sunday School Christmas party. It was so much fun! Our party planning committee did a FABULOUS job…the decorations were wonderful, the food was yummy, and everyone had a great time. We raised over $1,000 for the Holly Park Mobile Home Park by participating in a silent auction. We brought home some great […]
Last night we had pasta for dinner….Molly kept saying, “Can I have some more possum, please?” It was very funny.
Today was a GREAT day. First of all, my cleaning lady, Mrs. Lee, was scheduled to come clean my house. What a blessing. I have enjoyed her services so much. Secondly, the kids and I were planning to get out of the house for a few hours, which is usually nice. Today they were all so well-behaved and sweet. We […]
Our family went to get our live tree last night at Berry Patch Farms. It was SO COLD. I didn’t realize just how cold it was, therefore we weren’t exactly dressed appropriately. (The other family riding with us had on their perfect winter coats with matching gloves, ear muffs, etc…oh well.) We rode on a trailer and a tractor pulled […]
Mama and Ruby after finishing her Tinkerbelle puzzle Tony, Denise, Irvin, Debbie, Molly, Ruby, Mack, Kristy & Josh We had a wonderful time at the Dorminy home in Albany this year. The kids played and played and played. Ruby watched many movies, Molly had her fair share of popsicles, and Mack was his usual funny self. He particularly liked laughing […]
We got back from Albany Saturday afternoon…we had a great time, and I plan to upload pictures and tell all about our visit when I have more time. Right now I just want to tell a quick story. This morning was a little rough because we are all just a bit tired from traveling and stuff, but we got up early to go to church. Josh always gets up first on Sundays to spend time alone downstairs as he finishes preparing for Sunday School. We had a few minutes this morning before we had to leave, so Josh sat down in a chair and closed his eyes for a second (EXTREMELY RARE). Ruby walked over and said, “DADDY, you can’t go to sleep! You have to teach Sunday School.” It was so funny. Josh actually tied it in beautifully in his Sunday School lesson. He shared how Ruby already is well aware of his role as a Sunday School teacher. As she grows up she will be even more aware of what that means…that her daddy is responsible for teaching the Word of God. It is so important that Josh live out The Word in our home, in private, where no one else sees but us. He is our leader. The kids are watching him, and they desperately need to see the Truth lived out by our actions and not just taught with our words. I feel confident that Josh […]
