I See Snow

Our snow is back!  It is blowing the white stuff everywhere!  Kids are skiing in it and I am praying they are safe and sound.  It's is comforting knowing that their dad is with them, always protecting them.  I do wish I was able to join them and snowboard the day away!

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.  Psalm 77:11, 19

Great Friends

Check out this site!  Great place to learn photography and more!!! 

Great giveaway going on now!!!! 

Isn't he good looking?  This is Thor.  He is a beautiful/wonderful chocolate Lab!!  We were so thankful for our good friends, Molly and Ryan, who came over this Presidents Day weekend.  We also enjoyed this big boy.  He wasn't too sure about his new surroundings, nor was he impressed with our little boy Bison.  They were the funniest dogs ever with each other.  Bison wanted to play and chase Thor.  Thor didn't like that, but then when Bison wasn't looking Thor would go up to him and sniff him.  It was an on going thing.  However, on day two, they were almost laying by each other!  Thor got as close as he could handle!  LOL!  What a lover he is though. 

Here is Bison tempted to eat Olline's gloves.  He just thinks it's a game.  I did use Thor's shock collar on him to get him to stop doing this.  It worked.  Olline loves her Bison and he loves her.  I just love this picture.

Another funny thing is that Thor LOVED Olline.  He wanted to protect her.  He would follow her everywhere.  He always checked back in with his momma (Molly), but then would go back out to see Olline.  In this photo, Bison was doing his "glove" game and Olline was yelling at Bison "NO"...well, that is all it took.  Thor then did his "manly" big bark at Bison and stopped Bison's games.  It was so funny.  Bison wasn't sure what to think.  Bison just thinks "hey, she's mine...I love her gloves...what did I do?" 
Thanks Thor for protecting my girl!!!

Thank you Molly and Ryan for coming and spending time with us!

My Chicken is Famous

2-16-12  About a month ago I turned in a photo of our "Chicken Nugget" hen (yes, that is her name) to our local newpaper.  I didn't know if or when they would publish it.  I do not get our newpaper sent to us daily, so I never knew if my photo was in there.  I thought "maybe" it would be published and be a tiny picture in the back pages-maybe in the corner.  BUT NO!!!!  It was on the front page, dead center, huge as could be!  There she was, our little hen!  So coooool!  It made my day!

My Famous Chicken Nugget!

To Give Hope

When the time was right,
the sea parted,
the walls fell down,
the lions went hungry,
the sun stood still,
the star appeared,
the waves were calmed,
the stone was rolled away,
the Lord ascended...
And when the time is right,
the King of Kings will return.

God is never early and He's never late-
He's always right on time and His plans for you are good.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

This was something I found inside a calendar I bought by DaySpring.

Crochet Elements

Sometimes I get a bit obsessive about things.  I am currently obsessed with crocheting.  I have always loved crocheting.  My mom taught me when I was probably 8 or so (give or take).  I was going to crochet my own doll in a frog costume, but due to the fact that I couldn't find the yarn I needed I started to create my own dolls.  Here are the first two.  They will be a set of "element" dolls.  You know, earth, fire, water, air?  So here are Earth and Water.  What do you think? 

Here is my Earth doll in his cute little tree like hat! 

Here is my Water doll.  He has a special hat with white embroidered edging to represent the ocean wave. 

Here are both my dolls.  They both have cute scarves.  The Earth doll has a scarf that is like lichen in the forest.  You know that stuff that hangs off the trees.  Then my Water doll has a scarf that looks like it has waves on it. 
They stand about 12" tall.

So here they are.  I will be working on my next two soon.  Fire and Air!  Hope you like them.  I know my 8 year old daughter does.  She sleeps with them every night too!!!
