God Has Blessed Our Day

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

Hello to all...hope everyone is having a fantastic day. We are home and Melina is finishing school, while Olline is sick with a low fever and headache. She came down with it two days ago, but it didn't really hit her until yesterday. Not sure what is happening...this is our "sick" year and I am not liking it.
Melina is working extra hard to finish her semester strong! Can you believe that our first semester of school is just about over? She needs to meet a certain percentage by this Friday and she is right there, just needs a few more assignments turned in. She is doing so well and we are very proud of her.
This week, Jade is gone to Salt Lake City. He is doing Schweitzer business and we are praying that all his meetings and plans will go smooth. Can't wait to have him back home.
Oh, yes, I forgot to mention our story of the "Garage Cat". Cortes or Wild Beast as we should call him, snuck into our house over a week ago, while Jade and I were having dinner with employees. We left the girls home alone, because we knew we would be home early. Well, right when we got to the restaurant, Melina called and said Cortes attacked KIWI (our little white inside cat)!!!! My precious Kiwi! Well, long story short, when we got home Kiwi was hiding under Melina's bed. I had to pull her out and sit with her. She was so scared. Melina and Olline were super scared, but Melina saved Kiwi. Kiwi only ended up with two cuts on her back. Melina was hurt also. Cortes, scratched her because she grabbed him off of Kiwi! I was shocked that she had the courage to do that. If she wasn't there, I believe Kiwi would have been killed. Anyway, so now we are all a bit scared of our wild cat. He has bitten me and now hurt Melina! What do we do? I know in the spring he will be let out and can roam all over the neighborhood as normal, but for now we are still feeding and taking care of him. He is loving, but you just never know with a "wild" cat.

Here are the four hats I crocheted for my sisters family. I hope they like them. They are fun to make and super cute to wear!

1-8-10 Here are the girls on their first day of Funatics! We are so thankful that the girls are able to ski! PTL!

God Bless to all.

I'm Here

I am writing a note today to say that I have not abandoned my blog. I think about it every day and I wish that I could just sit and play on the computer for a while to post photos and write. However, my days have not been as such. We are busy and truthfully I haven't taken any good photos. The weather has been so gray and nasty, going outside to photograph just doesn't sound exciting.
School has been non stop, with the exception that we took Wednesday off to ski! I don't even have any photos of that! We had a great day though...we were able to hang out with dad and get in some good family time. The conditions on the mountain were not very good, so we ended up coming home very quickly. Hopefully next time we can do the same and take more runs on the hill.
The girls started their ski program "Funatics" last Saturday. I met up with them after they were finished around 3:15 and tried to ski with the girls one last time! NOT a good idea. Poor Olline was so tired, she barely made it down the hill. So once we made it to dads office we called it quits and headed home with dad! So fun. So tomorrow will be their second "Funatics" day and I am praying that this nasty rain with STOP! Please pray with me...the rain is ruining this snow. It is not fun what so ever to ski in rain!
So even as I type this, Olline and Melina are both doing school work. Melina is reading the Lord of the Rings and Olline was studying about Rome.
I better get back to them...I promise to post soon. Hopefully with photos!!!

God Bless you all!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all! Hope that you brought in your New Year safe and sound. We just finished ours and I am about to hit the sack. The girls and I played games and celebrated in the New Year! 2011! Can you believe it? I can't believe I am still up! What am I thinking?
Just thought while my thoughts could calm down I would post my first 2011 blog!

Here is the icy snow that blew onto our roof the other day. It looks like it is melting off our roof, but it is frozen. You can see here where our front door hits it.

Here is a front view of the "frosting like" snow.

Melina excited that it is 12-31-10! She likes to celebrate the New Year!

Our fantastic sunny weather today. Though it was only about 25 degrees! Burrr!

Finally, Here we are celebrating our evening. We ate our big yummy dinner with dad, played some games, and then waited for midnight! Unfortunately, dad had to go to bed early. He needed to be at work at 6am, so he needed to sleep.
The girls and I had a great evening!!!
God Bless and Happy New Year!
