Well, we had a very good time at Mom and Dad's last night. We ate some really good food and opened presents. Josh and Ang went to my parents today to spend Christmas. I am sure they will have a lot of fun. I am looking forward to staying home on Christmas day. We are deep frying a cajun turkey again and I am sure it will be good. Allen, Natasha, Fritz, Super Dave, Heidi and Tyler will be coming over. The boys are soooo excited because we have like three different Christmas' every year. They get to open different presents. I am sure they won't be tooo excited with what we got them but you never know. Anyways, I hope you are all having a good time. Love ya!!

Holiday Baking!!

So....I've been making Christmas candy this week. Yesterday I made peanut clusters and got my bon-bons made and in the freezer. Today I covered the bon-bons with chocolate and they are ready to give to the police department. I am also making some muddy buddy's with whole grain chex for our family Christmas party on Sunday. I have to wrap a few more presents and get the kids a few more things in town on Monday when I go grocery shopping. I am working on getting a few other things made this week too like fudge and almond bark candy. It's my dad's favorite. Hope you are all having a great time doing your Christmas baking. Good luck Bek!!

The Psalms

So...I have been going through the psalms and doing a daily devotion book on the psalms with it. I have really been enjoying it so far and really wish Pastor had finished going through it. I made four loaves of bread today and two apple pies. We are having some in just a little while. I got my basket made for the Chinese Present exchange tomorrow night at Phil's Christmas party. The City of North Pole is having it at Pagoda so it will be a nice treat. Kim is going to watch the boys for me. Anyways, I am going to make Christmas Candy tomorrow. I am making little gifts with candy for the Police Department. The NPPD Chief gave us a ham for Christmas and I cooked it up for tonight. It was really yummy. Well, I hope you are all doing good. Love ya!!!

So...we got on a new schedule this week due to Phil's schedule at work. It seems to be working nicely and we spend lots more time with him and he gets more sleep this way. I didn't think it would be so nice. I like it a lot more than our previous one. I am making Phil's breakfast right now to take to him. I am making him sausage biscuits with cheese. His co-worker Scott is pretty excited too, especially since I made chocolate chip cookies too. I cut up an apple and got some milk to take with ......seeing as Phil can't have breakfast or anything sweet without it. Gotta go!!

Day 2

Well, I failed miserably at getting up early. It is hard with Phil sleeping in late so that he can go to work in the evenings. I am working on it though. I got up and got my work done. I didn't have a ton to do but I am still working on laundry. Doesn't seem like it ever gets done. We did our family devotion and I am working on getting my personal time in. I pray as soon as I get up so that helps. I am working on getting my reading done earlier in the day too. Not much else happened to day except I got my exercise and shower. Talk to you tomorrow.

Challenge...Day 1!!!

Well, as you can see I am just starting my challenge today. I tried to start last week but failed miserably since all of my kids were sick. I got up at 4:30 this morning and nursed the baby. Then took my shower and read my bible and prayed. I headed out to get Natasha at 6:00 and we went grocery shopping with the babies while Phil watched the boys for me. It was really nice. I got my Christmas shopping done for the boys and just have to finish up a few things. I got home at 11:30 and got the groceries put away and got the kids some lunch. We just kind of hung out around the house and spent time together since today was one of Phil's days off. SOOOO nice. Anyways, I took a short nap with Jesse while the kids did the devotion with Phil and they read their Louis L'amour book. They are really enjoying it.....apparently Jesse and I fell asleep in the middle of it all. I don't remember. Anyways, I got up and made some homemade pizza for dinner and then we played hide and seek in the dark. Phil and I are going to share a Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup....we'll see if he shares :0) Then I am headed to bed....I'm TIRED!!! I got the Ben and Jerry's for two dollars after I used a coupon....THANKS MOM!!! Praying for all of you in on the challenge. HUGS!!!
