OK, i am underway on my thrifty under 50 challenge from YCMT.com. I have already made a few presents and i have quite a few more that i am currently in the middle of. it is hard to make Christmas presents for little people who are constantly walking in on you and asking what you are doing! LOL! But i have managed to get some of them done.
The worst is when I am helping them with the gifts for each other. The girls are little magnets to each other! When one is doing something the other 2 HAVE to know what is going on. So they
are constantly walking by my craft room door and peeking in. It is the whole, tell a kid "no" and they will automatically do it, concept i guess.
Anyway, wish me luck on all the things i still need to get done! I am realizing very quickly here that i am running out of time.

So we had a blast at our Homeschooling thanksgiving party! We used Angel's Halloween pumpkin to make some pumpkin muffins and we made Cornbread Apricot sage cookies! Yum Yum!! The girls had a great time there at the park. What a great park too! It is a little far for us since we live in the NE, but hey, it was a super nice park!!!
Bria and Angel were just crazy about the slide!
Brit is my swingin fool! That girl loves to go high on the swings! All she would talk about in
kindergarten and first grade was the swings the swings the swings, at recess and how there were never enough of them!
Thanx so much to my new friend Amanda who organized the whole thing! It was so much fun! Amanda and I have so much in common I am so glad that I met her! I can tell we are well on our way to being great friends!
I made the YCMT challenge of thrifty under 50! Woohoo! I am so excited! The object is to see if you can make your Christmas gifts, cool and without spending money. And...well... for those of you who have seen my craft room, that shouldn't be too hard!! LOL!

Wow! I am finally doing it! I am using my blog!!! LOL! I have had this thing set up for like a year and never used it, but i figure i proabably shoudl start. not just so others can see it, but so i can start keeping a little family journal about what we are doing.
So here is my first entry! These are the Loves of my life! They are the delights of my life. I have been so very blessed by them. My 3 beautiful daughter, cute chubby baby boy, and my loving husabnd. I feel so priveledged to be their mom and wife, and sometime wonder why the Lord has blessed me so richly! My 3 beautiful girls and new baby boy are such a joy to me. And my Hubby is such a great man who is so supportive and loving towards me. And works so hard to support us as a family. I am truly grateful for him.
Then we went to church for a Halloween party on the 31st. Halloween is my favorite holiday, so i go all out on the costumes. I made the girls costumes, but jsut didnt ahve the time to make mine or James or Christians. James, was Obi Wan Kenobi, isnt he so sexy? Christian was obviously Yoda. And i was a jedi apparently no one had heard of! LOL! Her name is Barris Offee. She is an awesome healer and great jedi. Plus is meant i got to wear a blue cloak and blue lipstick, so it was right up my alley!
Here is Britty "Pippi"! She has loved Pippi for almost as long as me! LOL! So she finally decided to be Pippi. I am afraid this might be her last year wanting to be a little girl character :( So sad, they grow up so fast!
Brianna Totally surprised me by asking to be Lucy Pensieve from The Chronicles of Narnia. She looked so cute in her Lucy costume! She had so much fun. Sadly there werent enough Narnia fans there, and no one knew who she was suppose to be. But that's ok baby, no one knew who i was suppose to be either! LOL!
And then of course there is miss Angel! It really surprised me that people didnt know who she was suppose to be. What didn't surprise me was Who she wanted to be! She has been it before and love love loves this character, so there was no surprise here! She was jsut adorable in her Minnie Mouse costume, and what she likes to call her "Poofy skirt" ROFL!
