Feeling a little crafty

Here are the other door hangers. This one is Baby's:
And this one is Nick and Noah's:

And all this cold weather and snow has really gotten me into the Christmas spirit. This is last Christmas. I really caught everyone's personality in these photos!! I love them!!

Have a great weekend!

Let me start by saying this Blogger can really be frustrating!! I've been trying since yesterday to upload my photos (can't post without photos). Anywho, it has finally let me upload! Arggg!
Yesterday we had the most amazing thing happen!! It snowed!! Not a cold weather fan. Hate snow. But snow in November? It hasn't happened in all my 27 Years. O.k. 31 years.

It was just a little snow shower and it melted almost immediately.

Noah had a time playing in it. Nick was sick so he just watched it from the window. Poor thing.

It really came down for a minute! Literally, it was only a minute, then it was gone. I told Wesley he'd better brace himself. I'm sure to suffer from depression this winter. Haven't had to deal with that ugliness for about 4 years now. Our winters have been extremely mild, but so far this fall I've hardly been out so it's sure to set in soon.
On a much brighter note I got another Christmas present done. This is for my little niece. I did some for my boys too, but they are home because they've been sick so I'll have to post them tomorrow.

Have a great day and stay warm!!!!

Live & Learn

My photography (if you can call it that) is a work in progress. I was so heartbroken when I found out that this perfect picture was taken to small to even get a decent 4X6 out of.

So, I set out to try again and this is the result:

What do you think? I'd love to get your feedback. I don't like it as good as the first one. I'm still a little upset over it. I'm also very bias when I look at my photos. That's why I need your opinion. Should I try again?

Have a great day!

I Stand in Awe!

Happy Friday!!! We went out yesterday and played in the leaves. Baby was not in a picture taking mood, but these two certainly were!

Sometimes I just can't believe that Wesley and I made something so pretty. They amaze me!
Here are the guys on the first day of dove season.
My journaling talks about how special it is to see these guys together. Wesley's Dad was an every other weekend Dad. He loved Wesley, but it was not a nurturing father son relationship.
I think that situation taught Wesley how to be the awesome Dad that he is.
And in case you are wondering, Baby's gun is not real! LOL! In fact, the big boy's guns are BB guns. I'm too chicken to let them hold a real gun! :D!
Have a great weekend!!

Let Go and Let God

I must say, it's been a discouraging few days for us. But God's plan is so much better than our own. I'm very proud to be an American and no matter what, I know my God is still in control!

"...I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord's side." The Inner Life of Abraham Lincoln: Six Months at the White House by Francis B. Carpenter (Lincoln, Nebraska, University of Nebraska Press, 1995), p. 282. Also, Recollections of Abraham Lincoln by Ward Hill Lamon (Lincoln, Nebraska, University of Nebraska Press, 1994), p. 91.
I scraplifted this from a LO Elizabeth Kartchner did. I love that girl's style!!
Have a great day!!!
