366 days taught me to totally depend on God .. do not rely on myself or man ... depend on God .. not bible studies, books and blogs ... depend on God .. .. not my husband, children or family ... I want to decrease so He can INCREASE ..... DEPEND on GOD!!!

Happy New Year!

As if life wasn't already hectic enough ....

Thursday night, I broke my wrist! Yeah, the one I use everyday! I am blogging w/ the left wrist, so typing these few words is taking ten minutes to complete!

No, I have not finished buying or wrapping gifts ....
No, we had NOT started making our homemade gifts ... Ethan just got out of school ..
No, I had not started the sweet potato casserole for Thursday ...

I have had the pleasure of my hubby combing my hair ..... ha, ha, ha ...
Helping put my clothes on ...
Helping me w/ baths ....

AND he stepped right up to the plate and took right over w/ my household duties without a mumbling word!

Our anniversary is this week and our vows are being realized as .. we .. speak ....

but, I think because we entered into this covenant relationship on a good foundation 13 years ago, the next six weeks or so will be interesting, but will bring us closer together towards one another and towards God!

Where did the time go?

I have not been able to blog successfully in almost month ... see as I type, Austin is yelling "Mommy, help me, I have got to go to the potty and you need to see!" .. ok, hold on, I'll be back in a moment ....

{ Walks away, runs to the back of the house. }

I'm back.

Like I was saying, so many things have pulled me away from blogging and reading some of my favs, but I admit, I have been focusing on my family and I kinda like the feeling I get when I see them fed, clean and happy mommy is rolling on the floor w/ them.

We have been sick, celebrated two birthdays, went on vacation for Thanksgiving ... (oh yeah, those are the last photos you saw from me .. hehehe), Ethan played in his first Christmas concert at school, I have been spending a lot of time at the school on behalf of Ethan (tests, grades, Parent-teacher meetings) and working with the PTA.

I just started Christmas shopping and gift making this week, I ripped some wallpaper off the walls in the kitchen and now need to paint (great a week before Christmas), I am trying to redecorate my master bedroom, clean the house from top to bottom and declutter and get those items to the salvation army before December 31st and we are planning our Family Christmas servant project Monday.

Needless to say, while I enjoy blogging, I won't be doing much of it until after the first of the year after I organize my days better .. that way I can continue to contribute to my history project for generations to come and to entertain the 12 of you who continue to stop by periodically.:)

Merry Christmas to you and yours~!
