Happy Thanksgiving!

I had a REALLY long post that I had been working on for an hour... With each thing/person that I was grateful for and why... It just got completely lost. I feel like crying! I was almost done!!! So now it's just short and to the point. *sigh* 

Happy Thanksgiving!

And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name. 
1 Chronicles 29:13

Anthony is learning to play piano!

He has proudly mastered "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
Now he is eagerly flipping through my piano books asking me if I will teach him 'this one, or that one'
to each I respond... "lets find an easier one."

I may not be a great pianist but I KNOW you can't play that yet! :-)
I am thrilled that he is learning!

Psalm 95:1 
Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

Ephesians 5:19
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,

Cooking/Baking Like Crazy Today


 Mashed potatoes for tomorrow....

 Pumpkin Pie... .for tomorrow.

                         Apple pie... for tomorrow.

(I'm making the thanksgiving meal.)

And one more post...

Lol I guess I am having a blogging spurt. ;)
We put up our Christmas tree tonight!!






In this last photo I found Anthony sitting in the dark sunroom all by himself, playing gently with a Christmas ornament and singing quietly. I got the picture without being noticed. 

That's all! (For today... We'll see what tomorrow brings.) ;)

Love and in Christ, 

Friends and Snowball Fights

The Larsons and Rosenquists came over yesterday; I did not get any pictures but we had a blast!
Hanging out, (everyone.) snowball fights, (boys against girls...)
ga-ga ball,(most of us :-) ) boggle, (Liz, Emily, Myself, Mrs. Larson and Mom; then Mom traded with Rob and Mrs Larson traded with Caleb.)
dutch blitz, (the younger girls) walks in the woods, (Liz and I)  food (everyone)...
and our thermostat got fixed today!

This is what I woke up to...

I woke up this morning 
and tried to remember what was happening today. 
"Friends are coming over" I heard myself say. 

Finally I got up, I made my way 
through the cold house,
Quiet as a mouse. 
I entered the sunroom and what should I see?


now Im alone on a chair, considering words that can tell a story and rhyme 
I'm not doing very well I'm a afraid, but at least you can tell what I'm wanting to say. 
It's hard to find words to rhyme at the right time! 

Yeah, no one else is awake, I might consider going back to bed after bible time if: I wasn't already dressed, I have school to do, the house needs to be clean, a fire started because the thermostat is still broken, a piano to be played and a mystical, snowy day to be photographed. 
(Oh, and all of this by 10 o'clock.)

(If I was positive that anyone reading this  has seen the Princess Bride I would say this:
"I have my country's five hundredth anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Gilda to frame for it. I'm swamped!" 

So now I said it and you'll have to watch the movie. :D

Thermostats and Winter Hats

Ok, so it's freezing outside right? 
(No I'm not complaining yet... I'll wait till January to complain about the weather.)
I'm just stating the fact :)
People are all bundled up, wool coats, hats, mittens, scarves, etc. 
our thermostat was set to kick in at a certain temperature  (I think it was 60-65) 
Someone must have messed with it because it got turned up to 74! A little while later the air conditioner started... Um, excuse me? That's not okay! It's cold out Mr. AC alias Mr. Heater! 
My mom has now shut done the entire system. 
Pioneer days here we come! 
( we stoked the fire and stacked the wood high.) 😃

Ok textbook. I know. 
                 I'm procrastinating. 
Back to school. 

😄 (I had to go to school this morning and have behind the wheel after class so I'm a little behind. 
I'm almost done with my last assignment for the day.)

Wise Words from my Mom

I was stressing that I would have as much trouble/dislike with/for geometry as I do with Algebra 2, my wise mother promptly responded,

"don't worry about geometry, algebra has enough worries of it's own." Sayings of a Mother 634 (BLB - Book of Lisa Baffa)

 "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today." Matthew 6:34 (NLT- the only reason I used this version of the verse is because it matches my mom's words better :D )
