Week in Review: May 28-June 1

(Ephee and Kole having fun during the game--LOL)

(Had to play on a very wet field--after 2 wks of rain)

(Holding up trophy's at the banquet for playing a good season)

(Before her appointment...she's happy)
(Not so happy :(...LOL)
(Baby girl get's her weigh in)

Had another fun filled week: Celebrating my hubby's birthday (sorry no pic..just had a short video but couldn't download), Shiloh's playoff game (who's team almost went to the Championship), Shiloh's flag football banquet, and Ana's 4 month appointment. I think there were some other little happenings but can't remember at the moment. Trying to make this post a little brief cuz right now I should be doing other things than typing on this blog. Yes, laundry, to name a few.....LOL

Donnie's birthday was so busy we had his Birthday dinner on Friday. I made his favorite: Meatloaf, with Mashed Potatoes and green beans on the side and for dessert...Apple Pie (Publix--no amazing creations at this point of my life) with vanilla ice cream (buy one, get one deal from Publix).

Shiloh played his last Playoff game this past Thursday. We played a tough team.--(the coach on the other team kept calling all sorts of fouls and "complaining" about tiny details...wasn't fun) They had us over by three touchdowns and he still was trying to beat us down :( Either way...Shiloh's team had a good team spirit.

Ana had her four month check up today (Monday). She is doing great. She weighed in at 12 lbs 10 oz, and about 24 inches tall. She is very proportioned with her height and weight. She falls around the (30% range for both height and weight). She didn't get vaccines this month (we usually wait till our babies are about 6 months--less stress on the baby and body), but the doctor visit knocked her out. She didn't enjoy getting undressed and having the Doc poke her all over her little body. Not fun!! I 'm with you girl!!! LOL. I am so glad she's been healthy. She's had a few colds but very blessed for healthy kids.

Coming up this week: I have a homeschool pool party Wednesday (that will be fun); I order my homeschool books on Wednesday (my book supplier is coming into town that day); My big homeschool evaluations are happening on Thursday afternoon (I'm a little nervous, but I know she (evaluator) will say I did great!--hopefully ); Friday, I go into to get my back cracked (this has become a weekly thing, since having 8 babies--I need some serious work); Saturday I have a friend and her whole troop (they have lots of kids also) coming over for dinner, it will be lots of fun and hopefully they can make it still; and Sunday--my day of rest and going to Church...

Until then...

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
