Have you ever sat outside and looked at a sunset and thought"It doesn't get better than this?"This is the great wonder from God that I get to see from my front porch at night at the house. Isn't it gorgeous? God provides us with great paintings!

Ok, I have a few praise God things to share.

1. Todd is doing great, He moved to Spring and got a job working for Centerpoint Energy making great money and he is getting life in order for getting married. I don't have a wedding date yet. I am relieved things are working out for two of them.

2. One word "House"

3. Sabrina and Stacey are doing great in school this year.

4. Tart's (Alice) fingers healed. We nicknamed her this after here run in with the pop tarts.

5. My husband is the best ever!!!! He has worked his fingers, back, legs, toes... to the bone working on our house. He is truly a blessing.

6. Rishanne : Peanut is growing wonderfully. I know Rylan is his name but to me he will always be "Peanut".

7. Best for Last.... God's love is ours for eternity. What wonderful news. That being sinners and so imperfect he accepts us and through him we become new and refreshed. Looking at that sunset each evening brings tears to my eyes and my heart full of thankfullness.

Because of Him........

Isn't She Precious!

McKenna Fraley as you all know is really half ours,half Matt and Alice's.At least until it's time to pay for college. Sorry Alice! The one of her below was at the last home football game and McKenna's LuLu was holding her. She really loves popcorn
or anything else that one get her first.The Fraley's are very special to our family.

Shocking I Know!!!!!

Yes! Your eyes are not decieving you! I am actually posting a comment and updated pics of the house! Has it really been since August???? Surely not! I am very excited to say that this Friday Night I will be spending the first night in my house!!!! I am so excited I think I am going to bust. I have already begun to move things over but, tomorrow is actually the "BIG DAY"! The pictures of the floor is the master bathroom tile and then the far right is the front door and study.

What we won't do for entertainment!!!

Nothin' like living in the country!!! Me and Rick were in the mule pulling the feeder so that the cows would change pastures. It worked! Stacey wanted to ride in the feeder and then got scared because the cows were chasing her! I'd like to see city folk have this much fun!!!!!

Bad news, Good news

Well, I'm going to start with the bad news! We got a phone call Friday night that my brother-in-law had a heart attack and was going to need heart by-pass surgery. So on Saturday he had a quad by-pass. Rick , his siblings, and parents made a mad dash to Illionis which is where Rick's brother lives. At this writing he is still on the respirator but, hopefully he will be able to be taken off that this afternoon. Please keep him in your prayers. His name is Gary Binnicker.
Now for the good news!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all your prayers on behalf of my sister. I talked to her on Sunday and she is doing amazingly better. God is so good. She has been going to counseling and the counselor has really helped my sister work through alot of issues. Keep praying though she still has a long way to go.

Our House & Another Wedding date

Well. I guess that I haven't gotten better at posting. We are still working on the house but, we are much, much closer. Here are some pictures just to give you a peek.

The top picture is the unfinished shower in the master bath. The middle pic is of what all the dorrs look like and the bottom is th font door and foyer area. The doors on the left go to the study room. The cabinets are in but, we are wating for the doors( as soon as we get through putting the clear coat on) to be put on. As soon as they are finished I will post some pics.

Yes, you read right Todd and Katie have changed the wedding date again!!!! The new date is February 7th . Can you hear me screaming???? Please pray for Todd he is going to go for a job interview on Wednesday. He really could use the security of having it to start life on his own.

Weddings,Camps,and Amazing Matt!!

I hope I get better at making entries on my blogspot. So much has happened since May. Todd and Katie have picked out a wedding date....May 16, 2009. I think that I have finally gotten used to the idea. They have decided to have a beach wedding.

The girls and I just got back from camp and we had a great time. We have a little sleep deprivation but it's worth it. At camp there is a boy Matt and he has Down's syndrome. He is such a inspiration to everyone that he comes in contact with. It is so amazing how God's word reaches the children with disabilities like Matt and they comprehend better then we do sometimes. God is so Great!!! Thank you Lord for Matt Hoker!!!! I'll tell you how that progress on the house is coming next time.
