Giveaways and More!!

Hey!!I hope everyone had a wonderful day today!!! I am soo excited about this give away!!! Over at It`s about Annie there is a giveaway for a hand made Annie doll!! While your there be sure to check out her other blog called bowls and annie.Her husband makes hand made wooden bowls and she of coarse makes the dolls.She has an excellent tutorial about how to make your own annie doll,plus she also has tons of patterns for sale as well as dolls!! I have been a huge fan of annie dolls for a long time now(can you tell?LOl!)Maybe it`s because I always remeber having little Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls as a child.There`s also this huge picture my mom had taken of me when I was 4 years old barefoot in a little yellow sundress holding a giant Raggedy Ann doll.The picture stood on a wall in my bedroom for years.Sometime I`ll have to post in on my blog for all of you:)When I look at that picture now I can see the spitting immage of my oldest son.I always say it looks just like Joey in a dress.Gosh,I`m so sorry to be babbling on!Lol!I guess I`m just getting carried away going down memory lane.Remebering a simpler time when everything was so carefree.Our family was all together.Thoes are all just sweet memories now.No one in my family is speaking now,and both my parents have passed away.Anyway,now I have my own family and we can make memories together!!I also have my brothers and sisters in Christ who I cherish and love so much!!I`ve been through alot in the past few years,and one of the most valuable lessons I`ve learned is to store up our treasures in Heaven and not on this earth.Earthly things will one day fade away,relationships get broken,people pass away,but the one thing that will never pass away in the love our great and mighty Lord has for us.The one that will never forsake us and will always keep His promises!!!
I have to run now!!Emily has a 104 temp tonight and I have to go check on her to see if it`s going down,Blessings my sweet friends!!!

Thanks for all your prayers!

Hey everyone!!Thank you all so much for your prayers for Emily Rose.The surgery went well and she is fine.She has to heal a bit more before they attach the equipment that will activate her hearing. My friend has to meet next week for training on how to use the hearing devices.Then they will attach them to Emily's head magnetically.It`s going to be so exciting for this baby to hear!Please continue to keep this family in prayer as they continue through this trial.I can`t help but praise God as I see the miracles He is dong for them.He`s given the doctors such wisdom to be able to design this device.He`s also given my friend such grace to endure the many trials that have been set before her.
I do need to get going now.I hope everyone has a blessed evening!!!

I`m still Alive!!!

Hey everyone!! I know it has been soo long since the last time I updated my blog.My life has just been very busy as it tends to get around the holiday season.Plus we`ve done some more home improvements as well.I don`t have any pictures to show you guys at this time,but I`ll try to get some up later.
First of all I have had two huge answers to prayer!! The first one is regarding my ongoing heath issues that I`ve mentioned in previous posts.My doctor said the type of endometrial hyperplasia I have is curable and the problems can totally be corrected without surgery!!!That is fabulous news!!I did not want to have to go through a partial hysterectomy at only 32 years old!!The second answer to prayer is concerning my husband.There has been a lawsuit going on between him an his former employer.Due to his extensive nerve damage in his feet he was told that if he was able to return to work he would have to take a position he physically could not do.They also denied him Workman's comp.It looks like they are going to settle on two years pay.So that i fabulous news!!He also tried to apply for Social security but was denied because of his age.The lawyer plans on contacting them as well and then if he gets approved for that he can then re-open the case with his employer and sue for wages he would of made over the course of 30 years.So we are getting somewhere with this whole thing anyway.Then after this is all said and done he plans on trying o go to school to re-train maybe in the accounting field or some type of work that wont put any strain on his feet.I just praise God for all of the provisions He has made for our family!!
As I mentioned above,we have been able to do some more improvements to our home.For two years we`ve been living with a half painted living room,and molding that needed to be done around the one window.You could literally see the wall boards because the molding was ripped right out.The curtains were covering it,but we were losing alot of heat.So,hubby`s brother who is very handy came over and help us put new molding around both windows and also put up wainscoting.(That`s bead board going up half the wall and then a chairail.)Oh,it looks so beautiful!!The only problem is that I can`t take any pictures of it because the lighting isn`t too great in our living room.Once I can figure out a way to get around that I`ll do a before and after post:)
The past few days have been really awful.Our whole family has a bad stomach virus.My little girl got t the worst.Every hour she was vomiting last night.I was doing wash at 1 a.m. Then I had my 8 year old vomiting as 10 year old had to be picked up from school because he got sick.Then 4pm it hit me.Hubby is out right now doing our food shopping for us.Between the ice and snow storms we`ve been having we haven`t had a chance to go food shopping.I better get going now.Later on tonight I might post some Christmas pictures:)Have a blessed day and thank you so much for stopping by!!!
