Thankful…

I’m fixin’ to get busy with all the cooking and just wanted to take a moment to say how Thankful I am for our family.  I am so blessed to be mom to four wonderful daughters.  Sweet little Hope has changed so much over the past almost three years now and has blessed our entire family with her love and laughter, I love you Hopie.  Misty, Carmen, and Bethany…you will never know how much I love you and how very proud I am to be your mom, you are all women who love the Lord and it shows in the way you mother your children.  I am thankful for John and Jeff and miss Wade terribly during the holiday season…but to know that he is celebrating with his Heavenly Father this year takes away  a little of the sadness.  Our grandchildren are a priceless treasure …

And Ronnie…I love you and am so thankful to be blessed with such a wonderful Christian man to share my life with….

I am BLESSED…

This picture is of our entire family except Heath but he is waiting patiently to join this bunch in mom’s tummy so I really feel like this is a complete family picture….

Halloween

It was a BLAST.   We really had fun.  Friday night was Halloween on the square where Hope, Audrey and Heath were of course the cutest little Bumble Bee, Lady Bug, and Monkey ever!!  Saturday we spent the day at the Dallas Arboretum and although they were not dressed up they did “Trick or Treat”… it was so very beautiful.  If you have never been please go…that’s all I can say…just GO! Sunday night found us at the First Baptist Church Festival.   We really got the best out of this years holiday.  The only thing missing was the traditional Wolfhill wiener roast and hayride we will just have to remedy that soon!

Texas Tither

Sat. morning Hope asked me to help her count her money. She arranged the quarters in groups of four, pointing out that one was a Texas quarter. After counting all the money Mom reminded her that she needed to take out 2 quarters to pay her tithe to the Lord on the 5 dollars that Aunt Vicki gave her last week. Hope said, "OK, but I'm not giving Him my Texas quarter."
