Garage Saleing!!!

Ang and I got up and went garage saleing this morning. It was a lot of fun!!! She is so much fun to hang out with! We found a few good things but nothing I was needing! I am hoping to go every week but I don't know how realistic that is. I have a few projects that need finishing. Anyways, we came home and worked on our dresses for a LONG time....they were being difficult. I have a hard time sewing when my children are awake because it distracts me and I make mistakes. I don't like making mistakes. After that I made dinner and some food for Cutter and Larae'. They had a beautiful baby girl this week and I was going to take them some food tomorrow, but we have fifth Sunday potluck out at Two Rivers and I am not going to have time. Angela is such a sweetie that she is going to do it for me!!! I had to go clean the church tonight and still get the boys baths afterwards. Needless to say, I'm Pooped!!!! I just thought I would let you all know what a great day it was for us!!! Hope everyone has a beautiful and fun Memorial Day Weekend!!!

Have you ever thought about the word graciousness? Do you know what it means? I was studying a verse today( and probably will everyday until I die) talking about winning people over with your words.

He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend. Proverbs 22:11

It was interesting to me to think about the way that I deal with just my husband and kids. The way that I can be so upset and angry and pick up the phone and be cordial and nice. I feel guilty knowing the different people who mean most to me I've hurt with mean words. I have made this my verse for awhile. The one I will memorize and teach to my children. If this is one thing they learn from my example it will only be by God's grace. Graciousness and kindness are things totally lost in our society today. I find it lost in my heart. Thankfully, the Lord is good, and He is gracious. He will help me to become the woman after His own heart I desperately want to be.

Just some different thoughts from my study today. What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of our hearts!!! Don't forget that as easily as I have!

Beautiful Summer Days.....

Today was another amazingly beautiful day in Alaska. It was warm and had a breeze.....the perfect kind. The boys are mostly over their sickness and we have been working on getting out some and enjoying the weather. It's been busy with the house building and so far the gravel is done and we're getting the well put in soon. It is going to be a VERY busy June!! We're going to get the foundation done and start on the framing. We'll see how it all goes but we're excited!

Josh, Ang and McKinley came over today to hang out and eat cheese burgers with us. It was a lot of fun. Josh stayed and watched ALL the kids so Ang and I could go running. I always feel so much better afterwards. It has been so nice getting out. We went to Natasha's this morning and played and the kids had a good time and it was nice to visit with her. We haven't seen each other much lately with our hubby's having opposite schedules and all. So, all in all another great day!!!

Well, three out of four boys are sick and I imagine that it will not be in the too distant future that the other one gets sick too!! We wanted to go on a walk tonight but Jonny sounds too bad and the two little ones have runny noses and coughs. I found a double stroller on Eielson Base for Sale for twenty five dollars and I'm just waiting for the lady to call me back. I sure hope she still has it! I haven't had a chance to workout but once this week and I am totally feeling it. I have been reading up on the blood type diet and the effects that certain things have on your body. Interesting read and may do a little changing of the diet to see if the things on my avoid list will help me feel better and lose weight. Anyways, just a small update about life in the McBroom house!

As you can see I haven't been around in a while. Things have been nuts!!! I am getting ready to start taking TONS of pictures through the summer of the house building project. We are getting very excited about it all!!! I am trying to go to the park once a week with the boys and then we're also trying to get together with friends. That is a lot harder said than done these days. Anyways, just a small update since sooommmeeee people are getting bored with me!!! You know who you are!!
