Snow Play

We took an overnight trip to western Maryland.  We stayed at a resort that had all the activities we love to do.  Michael and I went cross country skiing.  I found out how out of shape I am, sigh......  I was huffing and puffing around the trails.
We had a nice dinner and Christopher was able to eat his favorite food SUSHI!
After dinner we hit the snow tubbing hill. 
This was a really nice hill with great flow!

The next day Chris and Michael hit the slopes for some skiing.
It was a fun little trip to the mountains.

Look Who is 50 Today!

Sarah dugout her old Light Bright tonight and made Michael a nice cake!

I was just going to put the 50 on the cake, but the kids insisted that we put on all 50candles.  It was a tight fit bt we did it.  I like this picture with the kids and Michael's hands.

I'm so thankful for my husband for so many things. We've been married 25 years.
He is dependable.
He is honest.
He has a great sense of humor.
He is caring.
He loves the Lord.
He loves our children and spending time with them.
He tries to thank me as much as he can for making dinner and is very helpful around the house.

I pray that we can celebrate many more birthdays together.

Busy 2 Weeks

This week I went to HCC and updated my computer
skills by learning the basics of ID CS4.
 It is a fancy publishing program. 
So if anyone needs a brohure, catalog, or book made,
 I am your gal. LOL

I received a bunch of freebies in the mail recently. 
If you want to get something besides bills in the mail,
go sign up for some free stuff. 
There are tons of stuff out there on the web. 
I put my favorite sites on my sidebar.

Last week I worked at the cold weather
shelter hosted by our church.  I worked in the
kitchen and helped clean the buiding during the week.
It has been cold here in MD and the people were
happy for a place to sleep each night and a warm meal.
Compassion is love in action.

Thanks for looking.

Note to SELF

Note to self....... Don't fill your beanbags
 in the winter in your very dry house
lest you and your house will be
covered in white foamy things. 
That is all.

5.Stop and save this image to your folder.

6.Continue selecting and saving until your timer beeps.

Well I had a hard time picking favorites so I picked out the ones that caught my eye and jogged a good memory.  So here are my 12.  If you do this let me know!


Eat From The Pantry Challenge

I am taking the challenge from over at Money Savings Mom.
 I will be cooking all our meals with what food I
 have on hand an only spend 100 on fresh foods,
such as milk, fruits and veggies.
 I have so much in my food storage that I need to weed out.
so if your pantry/freezer is looking a little crowded join me in this challenge.
