It's a Girl!!!

FINALLY, it's official!! It's a girl!! She was born this morning weighing in at 7lbs.4oz!! Lots of blonde hair, will post a pic, when I get one. (hopefully, won't be too long...)
I am rejoicing for my friends, as they enjoy their new little bundle. What a precious gift!! Please keep them and the birth mother in your prayers, as the next few days can also be quite difficult in this situation.

Just Believe,

Thursday funny............

Gotta Love Little Boys
Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of Tampax, and proceeded to the checkout counter.The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son, how old are you?""Eight," the boy replied.The man continued, "Do you know what these are used for?" The boy replied, ”Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. He can't do either one."

It's a...............boy or girl??

Good Afternoon blogger friends!! This just friends Emily and Mel are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their baby girl/boy sometime today. Please keep them in your prayers, as they are very nervous/excited. (they are adopting this precious bundle) I would love to be with them right now, or near them, but that's not an option, and its killing me!!! Hopefully before I turn in for the night, I will have some awesome news!!!
This pic is of my Alex 10 years ago!!

Nice weekend, coming to an end :)

Hey there fellow bloggers!!! Just thought I would stop by here and wish everyone a wonderful week!!! The week before Christmas......the hustle, the bustle, so much to do, so little time. I myself feel pretty good about the upcoming week. The gifts are almost wrapped, a few cookies baked....(as long as Alex stays out of them, I'm good!) the house, well, it will need a good cleaning sometime this week, when the spirit moves me.

Last week when Alex and I were shopping, we came across some mens suits. Alex has always wanted a "business suit" and now with FBLA, he will need one. I'm also hoping he will slow down on the "growing front" and will hopefully be able to wear this more then once. I think he cleans up pretty good for a 15 yr old!!!

Today, Alex and I made a quick trip to Minot (about 20 miles from our home). Our last stop was to Chocolatopia to pick up some Chippers, chocolate covered potato chips. I hope all you faithful readers have experienced Chippers, as they are the ultimate best treat ever!! Nothing else can top Chippers.

Here's hoping you all enjoy the week before Christmas. During this time of year, we take the time to remember and be thankful for all the blessings in our lives.

Thank you for frosty mornings, like today.

Thank you for "business suits".

Thank you for Chocolatopia!!

Have a great week, will post more later this week.

Favorite Foto Friday.......

Here are some pics from past Christmas's.........always a fun time in our home!!! Alex is 15, and in the 9th Grade. Arthur (wiener dog) will be 4 in January. They are both a joy to have around. Arthur is my faithful little bed partner, who will take up as much of the bed as he possibly can!!!
I found the following scripture on another blog site, thought it was fitting for this time of year....
"So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun."Ecclesiastes 8:15
Hope you're all enjoying this wonderful time of year!!

Christmas Photos..........

Just thought I would post a few pictures from the weekend. Had Alex and Arthur pose for a few. Still no good outside pics. We now have snow, which I am sure some of you would think thats real cool. However, we North Dakotans don't think too highly on the snow front. I have seen way too much snow in my life, I think I could live without for a winter.

Hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday Season, I have yet to finish my shopping, but intend to on Thursday.

Have a great week!!
