Christmas in a cup

My oldest daughter works for a chain grocery store here called Fred Meyer, she gets a discount which is awesome. She brought me home this Christmas creamer to enjoy this morning. She is a good girl. My favorite Christmas flavor is Peppermint!

Checking In

My daughter took this photo of me, I was singing in the car, to my Steven Curis Chapman of coarse, dropping her off and onto work for me. I like this photo, because as I was singing to the Lord, I was really enjoying that sunlight streaming in around me.

My household has gone thru some things, but we have come out strong thank you Jesus!

I am hoping to stay on top of this blogging again, it is so theraputic for me!

Prayers for our children

To me, parenting was much simplar when my girls were younger. I homeschooled up until 4 years ago. Then, due to financial reasons, and my in-laws not being able to help out anymore, I enrolled all of them into school.

I still think about Homeschool every day, every day! I now have 3 teens in my home. And the difference is astounding. My 17 yr old is really going thru alot, and all I can do is pray! PRAY!

Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands towards Him for the sake of your children! Lam 2:19

Acrylic Nails No More

I have had acrylic nails for 20 yrs. I know, right? I am tired of going in every month, and spending the money was not fun either. I didn't think my nails had a chance, I thouht they would be damaged for good. But, I found something that the really has healed my nails.

I am very pleased to say I have been saving $20 a month on acrylic nails

Beach House is ready

This is our beach house, we were so blessed to come into a good deal, we couldn't pass it up. The market in this beach town is for the buyer.

We havebeen renters of this place for 6 yrs. And our friends are moving, can't hang onto the place. So they offeredit to us for thousands lower than its worth.

We have spent the last several weeks remodeling and turning it into a more family friendly place for people to rent as well.

So here is a few photos of our place.

Beachy time

I took this photo last week. This is Ocean Park. Hubby and I take our children here often, of the coastal places here inthe Northwest, we find this beach the safest, and most peaceful for our family!

And great news, the Lord in His awesomeness opened a door for hubby and I to purchase a beach house here. We had been dreaming about it for about 6 yrs now!!!

We have been going there for weeks now, updating it. I will share pictures as soon as I can.

Missing the sun

I am really missing the sun right now! After spending 2 weeks in 75' weather in Arizona, coming back to the dreary Northwest has been a bummer. The sun peeks thru for a few minutes and then he is gone again. I really miss the sun!!!

TobyMac Concert

We suprised our 11 year old with a Toby Mac Concert for her birthday, she really loves him. And I have to say, though I don't listen to him often, I was very impressed with him and his crew. I would say best concert to date (other than Steven Curtis Chapman) but no one could ever top him :)

Brandon Heath was his open act, and a bunch more my style, he too, did really well. If you have a chance to see them I highly recommend it!
