What a great movie

This is one of my favorite movies. I keep telling my husband that I want this movie but he is not bring it home. I guess I will have to purchase it myself.

this is really a good song

I know that the artist is not a really nice (clean cut) guy but this sone is good. And he is trying to be a good father to his kids.

What a awsome song.

I saw this video at church one day and my husband found it for me. This is a great song and it sure does make you think about the decisions that can change your whole life for the better or the worse.

Knitting and then some

I need to post because I really didn't want to leave anyone in the dark about the judge's decision. The judge gave my brother 6000.00 to pay back for the funeral which by the way I am happy about it. Now no one can say that they paid for mom's funeral she did. The rest of the money was split between the brother's and sisters. So thank you God for favor on this situation. I have been knitting and do have pictures. I will be posting the pictures soon. I am in a hurry to get presents wrapped and trying to get ready for the holidays.

Need to Blog

I have not blogged in awhile because I am sure that everyone is just as busy at this time of year as I am. I am just about done with Christmas shopping and I am still in need of a birthday gift for my husband. I am hoping that on Thursday the judge will decided that all the heirs to my mother should get the money and not just one. I know that it is only a little bit of money but I am hoping that I will be able to use this money to send my husband skiing for his birthday. I would love to bless him with that gift. So everyone out there, pls pray for me and that the judge will be fair and bless all the heirs to Shirley Davis.

Now to knitting, I have finished my lap gained (is that how to spell it)? I finished my sons scarf and now only have one sock left. So that means I only have three projects on needles. So now I am working like a dog to get these projects done so that I can start something new. I am hoping that tomorrow will have pictures.

I really need to thank my Secret Pal, she is having a hard time with her pregnancy and still was able to send me a package full of great stuff. I do have pictures but I am not going to try to post them tonight. THANK YOU SECRET PAL for all the great stuff.
I will tell you what I received though: two skeins of sock yarn and a book on Magic Loop, a cookie cutter with the recipe of her favorite sugar cookies. I have to say they are good, I have made them for my three boys and they loved them. I have never really made sugar cookies homemade with the frosting. I usually just go to the store by them. I loved the card and I know that I am forgetting something but I will post pictures soon.

So just remember that on the 14 December pls pray for me.

A new lesson learned.

I have just learned a new leasson: NEVER DELETE A PHOTO FROM PHOTOBUCKET THAT I AM USING ON MY BLOG.......... Thank you life for a new lesson learned.


Why does it seem that life is a Soap Opera???/

Sometimes life throws you a curve and I am here wondering which curve to take. I have already posted about the new house search and knitting. About a month ago I posted that I might be getting some money from my mother's estate. I was so happy for myself and my family.

Well now my bubble has been popped. I have one brother (who by the way is not a nice person and is not saved, so that is one strike against me in his book, for I am a child of Christ) and now he is asking the court to take this money and give him all of it instead of splitting this money 6 ways. I wonder sometimes where his head is. I have been letting my family go because they are just to much for me to handle and the negative that comes from them is just too much. But my flesh is saying this is just not right. But do I want to let this negative feelings or whatever you may call it back into my life when the last year (since my mother and father have pasted away) I have been really happy and my life is great. I am at such odds right now. I know in my heart that the money is really not that much but I just feel that it is time for someone to tell him that enough is enough and that he was not Shirley's only child.

I have been really good about the knitting. I have been knitting on my lap blanket instead of everything else. I am trying to finish my unfinished projects so hopefully my idea will work and I am only going to work on this until it is done and then move on to another and etc. Oh well enough of my ramblings. I am off to my cell group and having fun tonight.

Sometimes Life has to Change!!!!

I have not really wanted to post lately because there has been changes in my life and I am not sure somedays how to handle the change. One thing has happened my camera is missing. I really believe that it is in my DH truck. I hope for Christmas that he will give me a new one. I am getting ready for another birthday party for my youngest boy Trevor. I just had one for my three year old on Halloween. He really was a great boy that day and then he just gets a kick out of being able to Treat a Truck and get lots of candy on his special day.

I and of course my family have resigned from our church after 12 or so years. I am not sure how to handle it but I do know that God will give us direction and send us where we are to be. We are visiting other churches and even looking at ones that might be in a new town.

See we sold our home and will be leaving and having to have a new home around July 1st of next year. Now I know that is still 6 or more months away but I have never had to worry about founding another home and that will be just right for my family. I am praying that God will direct us there also. We have found a home in Eustis, FL and we have visited this home twice and have even taken my father in law with us. I am believing that this is the home for us. We can just picture our children outside playing in the big yard and the house is huge and even has a room big enough for my DH to set up his office and work space.

I am not getting much knitting done. I have about 5 projects on the needles now and I am trying to get them done before I start a new one. Pls keep us in your prayer and thoughts has we try to found a home and a new church for my family.

There has been knitting.

Do you ever wonder when you will get your projects done (that is knitting for me). I believe that I now have 5 projects on needles. When I first learned to knit I told myself and my wonderful sister in love Susie that I would only do one project at a time. Of course she just sat there and laughed and agreed with me. Now I understand why she never said a word to disagree with me she knew better.

I finished my first pair of socks ever and of course I did not count my rows so one sock is a tad bit longer then the other. I am a little shy of putting this on the blog here but maybe one day I will get the nerve up to post a picture of it. Hopefully with the ones that I am making now, I will not make the same mistake. How did I do this and how will I not do it again??? That is my question of the month.

I was given a nice blessing from some of my friends that I knit with on Thursday nights. I love to bake goodies so I do this every Thursday night that I go to Sip & Knit to knit with my lady friends. So anyway they blessed me with two gift certicates for the store (they told me that I had to make something for me and that I was not able to spend this money on anyone (SP9) and that this is just for me. Let me tell you I was totally blown away from there blessings. I am not used to people blessing me just because.

So I THANK YOU Ladies from the bottom of my heart. I will be searching my books and patterns to see what I will make for myself. Well there calls my two young boys I guess it is time for me to take care of them.

Hopefully I will have pictures of me knitting process soon.
