We're leaving tomorrow afternoon for our LONG drive to Virginia! We decided to split up the trip by driving some after Ronnie gets off work tomorrow and spending the night somewhere and driving the rest on Friday.
I've been making oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies this afternoon for our board members and their wives. Tonight is our FUEL Christmas party. Thank goodness it didn't get canceled because it took forever to decorate the room! We're having chicken strips from Chick-Fil-A!! We got an awesome deal - buy one tray get another free so we get 4 trays for the price of 2!!!
Tonight I have to finish any laundry we have and get packed up tomorrow to leave. I probably won't be able to blog again for a while, so I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!!!!

Josh kept saying, "Oh my goodness! Another present!"

Tomorrow we're off to Indy to my parent's house for four days for Thanksgiving. My sister, Megan and her husband will be there and my brother's family, so it'll be a nice family reunion! Josiah is so excited that we get to spend three nights at Papa's house and he gets to see his cousins!
So, last night we got our tree up and decorated. This year I bought new tree decorations. I was getting so tired of the ones I bought the first year we were married. The boys wanted blue so we got blue and silver decorations. Last night we were putting on the lights when they went to bed so when they woke up this morning they were so excited to see it all done! Josiah said, "Wow! How'd you do that?" I'm so excited for Christmas this year! The older they get, the more fun it is! Until they're too old to care much...
We haven't gotten around to putting lights up outside yet, that'll be next week...
So, I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and fun with your families!!!

Today we had our first snow flurries and the boys went crazy!!! They were so excited! Josh could hardly get any words out to tell his grandma about the snow he was so excited! Josiah cannot wait to get a big snow and build a snowman! They haven't seen snow in a while, so they're super excited!!!

This past weekend I attended the IN Women's Conference in Indy. The speaker was Lisa Bevere and she was great! She's much different than her husband! She has some incredible testimonies of where God has brought her from and some great insights on what kind of women God wants us to be. One thing she did talk about was affiming your husband. I am guilty of not affirming my husband enough. We need to build up our husbands strengths and not just always point out his weaknesses. I am so blessed to have Ronnie has my husband, and I am beyond grateful for his faithfulness to me and the boys. So, I need to remember to affirm him and build him up, and tell him what a sexy hunk of a man he is before some other woman does!!!!

Last night Josh did not want what we were having for dinner, which was chicken devon. Skinless, boneless chicken on top of rice, with broccoli, cheese and a cream of chicken sauce over it. My boys are not big on broccoli, so I chop it up very small. So, last night he went to bed with no dinner because he didn't like all that other stuff on his chicken. (I know, I'm such a mean mom!)
Today has been a different story. He ate normal for breakfast - some Cherrios and OJ. Then, for lunch he has 3 chicken nuggets, about 12 mandarain oranges, chocolate pudding, a whole Peanut-Butter and Jelly sandwhich, and a whole apple. WHAT IN THE WORLD????? That's like two lunches!!! This kid isn't even 3 yet!
So, I guess this is what happens when you send your kids to bed with no dinner!

God, we pray that You will keep your hand on our nation through this election. Guide the people as we vote, to make right choices. No matter what the outcome, we lift up our political leaders to You and ask You to guide them in every decision they make and we pray that they would rely on You for direction and wisdom.

Remember years ago when our parents told us, "One day you will reap what you have sown..."And today that proved to be true. Today I spanked Josiah on his bottom and he laughs and says, "That didn't even hurt!" It was all a game to him. And I say, "Josiah, you're not supposed to laugh when mommy spanks you." (As I'm trying to keep from laughing myself, b/c he's making me laugh!) And he says, "But, it was funny...." I said, "It's not funny when you get spanked." And he replies, "Yeah, but I'm a silly nugget-head!"
I remember numerous times when my mom would spank us and my brother and I would laugh and tell her that it didn't hurt. And she was always trying to keep from laughing with us!! But, when dad got home, it was another story!
So, today I'm reaping what I sowed years ago....what a weird feeling!

I started this morning at 7:30 taping my downstairs....I love the color downstairs, but the dummies used flat paint....you can't wipe it and it doesn't stay clean when you have kids and it marks up really bad! So, I'm using the same color and going over the entire downstairs...quite a job, but it's looking much better....I quit at 3:15 and my first piano lesson started at 4:00. I took a very fast shower!!! I have a 30 min. break right now and then 5 more lessons....then I can eat some dinner!!!! I'll be dead beat tired tonight!!!!
And tomorrow I get to paint some more!!!! Until I get to the stairwell, because that is going to require me to rent a stairwell ladder....ugh!!!

This weekend is our fall festival in our town. Our church does a booth and sells tenderloins, drinks, fried twinkies and a few others things to raise money for Speed the Light. It's a HUGE fundraiser! It starts on a Thursday evening and goes until Sat. night. Ronnie's been there the whole time, so he'll defintely be tired on Sunday morning! The boys went this morning and played games and saw an animal show and we went tonight and rode some rides with some friends from church. They had a blast!! More pics in the family pics link!
