This post is about my oldest daughter. Becausse she is amazing. She is 16, and I don't think I could run my home or work without her.
She was homeschooled until she was 13, I was able to invest alot into her. And now, thank you Lord, I am reaping these benefits. She can just about run the whole household.
She makes my life easy...she is such a Gift to me!

I love, LoVe, LOVE the Rascall Flatts guys. I just bought their new CD, and am in love with it, as much as I am all the others!
Ok, enough of my "teen-age(39)" crush!!!!!
So, I have been putting all of my fall and Thanksgiving decorations away. Getting ready for Christmas stuff (yahoo!)
My Thanksgiving was awesome, my brother and his friend drove here from Salt Lake City to join us for the holiday. It was wonderful seeing my baby brudda!

Something this simple is also just amazing to me! I love this.
I have been a bad blogger, I know, but I have been sick for two weeks. The worst case of flu I have ever had.
Then I regained my energy to completely clean out the families closets and dressers. That feels amazing!!!!
Now I am in the "nesting" mood, and want to get busy decorating my home!

We are back from the Rod Run! It was so much fun and awesome to get away! We always meet up with our older friends, Gary and Doris, who are a hoot! They are both in their 70's and are just alot of fun to be around.
The top picture is of my Nephew and my oldest daughter! My nephew wanted to drive my daughters' truck so bad, so I let him. He did a good job.
It is good to get back home to. I like routine, and now we are trying to settle into one!

If you have been reading my blog for awhile now, you know that I LOVE Steven Curtis Chapman! He is my all time favorite. You may remember also, that his family lost their youngest daughter to a tragic accident! Well, this book by his wife is my read for our 5 days away!
Hubby and I are ready to leave to the Washington Coast for 5 days. We do this every year for time with one another, and let me tell you... it is needed. A dear friend of mine stays with our girls, and my in laws keep watch of the place too!
While away we enjoy the biggest Car Show this side of the Country and just enjoy ourselves! Please pray for hubbs and I, and the safety of our kids!

For those who don't know, I work at our Church as an Administrative Assistant to our Pastors. Friday was one of the gals last days because she is having a baby. So all of us girls took her to The Portland Rose Garden to eat a picnic lunch, we then took a tour of The Pittock Mansion. Which was amazing. I will try to get a few more interior photos up.
And, I am the proud grandmother of a new Mini Schnauzer. Our friends used our male as "stud" services and I get to pick a little one from the group for his use!

It is beginning to feel like fall here, I am very excited. The air is crisp in the mornings, and there is dew on everything! I am loving it! Fall is an amazing season to me! I am an Arizona girl, we never had fall where I come from, so I count it a treat every year to experience it!!

Our 1966 Mustang
Well, it is Car Show season here. So hubby and I are busy. We have 4 hot rods that we show. They belong to each of our daughters. But, they can't drive yet, so we enter them.
We go just about every week end, my hubby and I go to pass out fliers for OUR car show. Yep, we put on a car show thru our church, it raises money for back packs and school supplies for children in our community. We love doing it, and have found ourselves so blessed along the way!

I am loving this song right now....I believe it is her best song to date!
After walking the painful path and then passing of our brother John, and being an ear for a few dear friends, their struggles are great, but their crys to our Father have made them so strong! This song is so good.
Here are a few words from the song that touch me.....
The woman holding on for life,
The dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes
The tears of shame for what's been done,
The silence when the words won't come
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes.
We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah!

My brother-In-Law, John has gone home to be with Jesus. He was an amazing father, husband, and friend! We all walked thru a long ordeal with him, He having the greatest faith of us all!! I so admire this man, and the life he lived! He now rests with our Saviour, I can't wait to see him again!
The girls are out of school, and into the "summer" swing of things. Playing in the pool all day long.
I have started at work again. Work a few full days a week. Just enough for now. I am enjoying working with the Pastoral staff again.
I must admit though, like my sisters over at the SugarPie Farmhouse, I am craving FALL!!!!
