A New Year!!!

Happy New Year all!!  

Hoping all my bloggy friends have been enjoying their new year thus far. 

 I have!!  

There is lots to share but I'll make it quick.  
Donnie started his new job this week and we are so very, very happy to have him home again in the evenings for dinner and in helping me with the children. 
 I didn't think I was going to miss his presence in the evenings but I really did.  The days have been flying by during the day.  It has been nice to get back to a routine (sorta...ha ha).
  It feels nice to know when to expect him home and then I can prepare as such.  

His new job is a great fit for our family. 
 The hours are 8:30am to 5pm.  
This job is selling advertising to publications, so all of his job is at the driving around everywhere as he did with other sales jobs.  
Thank God!!  We get to save on gas...Yahoo!!  
This month is a bit slow for him since he's training but it will soon pick up momentum. 

I am so glad we'll have MONEY!!  
I never thought how thankful I am for being able to buy my own groceries.  I can't wait to make my list.   My heart is leaping with joy just to be able to buy my own food!!

I've been so thankful that my in-laws have been so very gracious to give of themselves to feed and shelter our family.  I will forever be gracious for them and to them.  
I am glad that now we'll be able to give back by doing our know? 

My spirits are lifted and yes I am continually making sure I am being lifted and encouraged by the Lord.   There are times when I have to get alone every few hours to allow the Lord to fill my heart with His true joy.   It is so very important and I can't even imagine how some even survive not having Him in their lives.   

Here are some things we did since the New Year began:

We made some New Year's crowns

Ha ha...Tsavah's crown was a bit laden with glitter!!

And what else to do in Florida but take walks in nice weather...

And biking for the kids...

And while they biked and played...
I sat and knit...
practice makes perfect...right?

A few days later we celebrated Kole's 5th Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Kole!!

He had fun making his special banner with winter leaves....

The year has been filling and refreshing already.  I am believing for good things this year!
I am hoping to be and do the best for my family this year. 

Untill I post again....

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the
