This blog is about my life, which is a HUGE mess. But by the Grace of Our Loving Father God, I have a Beautiful Mess of a Life!!! I am married to Keith, 23 years strong. We have 4 daughters ages 20, 18, 15 and 13. I have the honor of being home full-time and homeschooling our girls. We are in the process of trying to adopt my 3 year old cousin as well.
This blog will be RAW, the dealings of my daily life and the lessons learned along the way.

MERRY CHRISTMAS--May the Peace of Christ fill your hearts and homes!!!!
This is a picture of the manger scene in our Coca Cola Village.
This is one of our Classic trucks decorated in the front yard. This was after several inches of snow fell last night, That is "Santa" sitting in the cab. The glowing lights under the snow is what makes this just beautiful.
This picture was taken from across the street, OUR FRONT YARD. I was sitting on the back of our Quad.
Yesturday during the snow I was playing on the Quad, it was laot of fun.
Hubby taking girls for a sled ride around our neighborhood, after I took this photo, I jumped on the back for a ride.
Hubby and daughter #3, riding around. We have found ways to enjoy the snow.
As of last night at 10:30 pm we had 8 1/2in. of snow!
Well, we have already had 4 days of snow here. Today is the worst so far, we have several inches of snow already. As you can see, for the forecast for the next couple of days we are in for some cold, snowy and freezing weather. When I find my camera cord, I can download all the pictures we have taken so far.
these are my 3 favorite christmas movies. Home alone was the first christmas movie hubby and i saw together right after we were married in 1991. Christmas Child is based on a Max Lucado story, starring Steven curtis Chapman, and in case you didn't know this fact, I love, love Steven curtis chapman, he is my favorite Christian artist. And Elf, who doesn't like this comedy, I love this story.
Me and our oldest daughter. She just turned 14. I love his photo of us, she is so beautiful
And this is me and our youngest daughter, she is 7, again beautiful.
This is the picture we choose for our Christmas Photo cards from Costco.
Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. we enjoyed family and both hubby and I stayed on our Medifast, and never cheated. To date, our 3rd week on the program: hubby has lost 30 lbs and I have lost 15 lbs. We both are feeling better and have more energy, hubby hasn't had to take his insulin in 2 weeks (under Dr. supervision) God is good.
