A girl can never have to many pairs of shoes. Just ask Imelda Marcos. Well I don't think I can have enough PURPLE shoes. My new count is 10. I finally made it to double digits!!! I came across these from Fan Feet in September and patiently awaited there arrival. They are so comfy and adorable!
I love Thanksgiving. It's my favorite food holiday. And I love making pies! Tomorrow is the Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner at Wakita starting at 11:30. If you want a yummy lunch and some of my awesome pies come on down!
I am making 8 pies and 2 cranberry salads.
This year I get to use 2 ovens! It's been a year since we started the remodel of the house and kitchen and 5 months since its been totally done. I've been itching for November to roll around so I can put the kitchen to really good use. In record time this year by 1:10, 4 pies were done and the last 4 were in the oven!!!! I'm so excited!!!! I even had great help in the kitchen. There only requirement was that they had to have love in their heart while cooking for others. Next up for baking is the Danville Turkey Dinner and then family Thanksgiving. YUMMMMMMYYYY!!
He had a heart cath done and was 90% blockage that doctors fixed with a stint. He got to go home last Friday. Jeremey talked to him last night and he is doing pretty good. Starting to go a bit stir crazy! He is released to go back to work on Friday with a 10 pound weight restriction. His entire family is so thankful that he made it! He gave us all a scare. It is a good reminder of how great God is!!! Thank you for your prayers!
Our cousin Kevin had a heart attack this evening. We feel so helpless because of the distance in miles between us. We said some prayers for him during supper as the news unfolded. As the calls continued I decided it was time for our first family rosary. We got the girls' rosaries from their First Communions, Jeremey got one of his from when he joined the church, two plastic ones for the littles and a pink one for me that belonged to my Grandma. As we sat on our floor I had tears of joy for what we were doing as a family, sadness for those who are no longer with us and tears for healing for Kevin. Also of guilt that that we hadn't started it sooner. The first time was in asking for something, not in praise or thanksgiving. So tonight or today when you read this if you would send up your own prayers thanksgiving and praise and add some of healing for Kevin we would appreciate it.
I want to take just a moment to thank my mom and dad for the (eventually) found memories of our family rosaries and the times that we got to pray it at home and at church. Its a bit tough to sit through the rosary if you are a little one and it wasn't till I was older that I appreciated what they did for us. For me there is not a more perfect place to say a rosary than at the Danville church. It's a pretty awesome place to pray it. I thought a lot of that tonight. Jeremey and I decided that the family rosary is something we want to pass onto our children and so it will continue!
We just got word that Kevin made it to the bigger hospital and is seeing doctors now. We will keep you posted. Thank you for your prayers.
We added a new family member this weekend. That's right Emalie's La La Loopsie family grew so today we took a quick family picture, "so they can all be happy", according to Em. I get hardly anything done on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays while I'm entering my last school year if having a little one home with me. I'm savoring it but part of me is doing a happy dance as next August draws nearer everyday. Then bills will be on time, laundry caught up, the house will be clean(er), my files will be organized and I won't feel as rushed. Right??
Until then I soak up little fun moments like this and the grilled cheese we are having for lunch because my little birdies will leave the nest WAY before I am ready for the to!
Happy first day of FALL. It's my favorite by far. Coolness, crispness, mums, cuddles, chilli and soup. Great decorations! Love it! So glad it's finally here. On a side note let the hectic holiday season begin!
We got to take a quick trip to Grand Lake this weekend. It was short but sweet. The best part of going for Jeremey is the flight there and back! We would not be able to come near as much of we couldn't fly. It sure beats the 4 hour drive! And the kids are usually so worn out that they fall asleep soon after takeoff on the way home. It gives Jeremey and I about an hour of uninterrupted conversation We are so blessed with a great family and an awesome pilot!!!!!
They know me in a way on one else ever has. They open me to things I never knew existed. They drive me to insanity and push me to my depths. They are the beat of my heart, the pulse in my veins, and the energy in my soul. They are my kids.
