It seems as though my sinus issues are back again....baaawaaa. The headaches are icky.
I am getting by with medicine so that's a blessing :) Poor dh has had a toothache for 3 days. Finding a dental office open during the holidays is next to impossible. I am going to call first thing Monday morning to see if I can get him in.
We went to town today to get Mariyah. Blake has been really missing her, it's been 3 weeks since we have had her over.
Ohhh ~ it is so nice...the snow is finally melting, and hopefully will continue to do so! Our neighbor plowed the driveway today so we were able to take the van.

I know the title becomes redundant, but I really am just so thankful today for His love. This Christmas was different then any other Christmas. I tend to just get stressed getting ready for the Holiday season, but I had a joy that was NEW this Christmas. Praise God!
We made all our gifts for the grandparents and had such a great time doing it together :)
Christmas Eve we gathered together, and my my dear hubby ready the Christmas story.......it truly was such a blessing! This was a first for ALL of us as a family to do. The kids were very exited that daddy was reading it to us this year!
Blake enjoyed all the baking and crafts we did. Austen has been enjoying being outside with dad and spending good quality time together. It has been nice to have him at for the week.
Last night we spent at my MIL's house having Christmas dinner. The kiddos got to open their gifts and play with their cousins.
What a BLESSING this Holiday has been. Thank You Jesus!!!!

It was a delight to see our deer back. They have been eating off of the apple tree.
We have more snow. We are up to 15in, and more is falling. The weather has been reeking havoc on transportation! We took Austen to town to go with his friends to have a airsoft war yesterday. Wayne just left to go and pick up Austen in town. It is a good thing Wayne can drive well in it, but most of these people have no experience driving in snow. The weather is calling for freezing rain. We did get some ice last night. I never have seen snow like this here in the NW.

Thinking: About another storm headed our way.
Homeschool Room: Yay! We finished our week. I did give the kids a snow day to play in the snow.
Thankful For The beauty of God's creation. Last night I got up around 3 am just to check on the boys, I looked out their window to see a young buck and a deer eating some of the fallen apples.
Dinner: Pizza (Yum)
Friend Front: I am concerned and praying for a dear friend who is struggling in her marriage. I called my best friend today to chat :)
My Dear Husband: Love Him...........he is my man!!! He is tired from a long week of work. The drive back and forth has been hard with this weather.
I Am Hearing: The buzz of the dishwasher and Austen telling me what the news is saying regarding the weather.
Dear Children: Austen is really exited he has plans to go with about 20 guys to go airsoft shooting. Blake and I worked more on grandparent gifts for Christmas. He is playing x-box with daddy now.
I am reading: Happily Married By Debi Pryde

Bible Reading: Proverbs 19-20
Praying For: Family Safety, Being able to go to church Sunday, My dear hubby, children, finances, Friends, Pastor and Careys saftey on their trip, Grandma (sick).
I stand amazed at God's beautiful creation!
It has truly been a blessing to wake up for the past few days to the beautiful blankets of snow. I opened my window from my kitchen sink to see the awesome wonders of our beautiful creation of birds. We have a apple tree that is still with fruit. We have been able to watch as these beutiful creatures come to eat their breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have just been enjoying God's goodness. We are so blessed!
Oh Lord, our Lord how excelent is thy name in all the earth!
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beast of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Almost Friday and I can hardly believe that we are a week before Christmas! The snow has been such a blessing! Today is a bit warmer so it's melting a bit, but we are suppose to get more Sunday I guess.
Blake and Austen have been doing great on their school work today. Austen is almost done for the day. Blake has been helping me work on the grandparent gifts.
They are both so anxious to finish their work and play in the snow for a bit.

Wow, we got a ton of snow today! Hubby came home early and played with the kiddos. They just had loads of fun. I gave them half the day off to play cause I knew Wayne would probably be home early. This afternoon the kids and wayne made cookies..........it was a riot! Wayne does not cook at all. They had no idea that their dad could even cook, so they watched intentally. When we were younger before children Wayne would always bake cookies and cakes lol.
It is breakfast food for dinner.......mmmm good
I spent some time today on smilebox........I absolutely love that program
Well it is near 7:30, and I need to get more laundry folded and get some shut eye:)
