Look What I Made!

 First things first, these little yummy goodies were from a box mix.... there are very few things I can make from scratch! But it was raining all day yesterday, hubs was at work,  the kids at school, I was bored.... so wah-laa.. I channeled my inner Betty Crocker {well in this case the Pillsbury Dough Boy}  &  took it upon myself to make these... I knew it would be a nice treat for the kids & hubster when they got in!

In a previous post I had mentioned that I had an interview on Monday, well just to
fill you in, I ended up getting a call back from another place I had sent my resume too & ended up having 2 take place in one day, well they went well, I hope to hear back next week on one of them, the other turned out to be part-time, but I didn't get it, originally they said full-time! Weird! But I am going to continue to seek the Lord's gudaince & know that when the right job for me is available, he will place me there.

Happy Thursday!

If You Don't Mind & Fabulous Friday Follow

Sorry I have been MIA for the last few days, I really have not had a thing to blog about, nor any new pictures to show off. Today's post will be short & sweet too! If you were following my old blog, then you know I was laid off 7 months ago, or to be exact it was 238 days ago... and in that time I have been searching for other employment, with no luck to be had. I have gone through terrible days, where all I wanted to do was just cry, to day's where I have enjoyed being out  of work. Well now that the kids are back in school my focus on getting a job has become ever more important! I broke down & went to a staffing agency last week & they called me Wednesday to inform me I have an interview with the company coming up this Monday @ 10am. I am just asking that you say a prayer for me, if this is where the Lord wants me to be, I hope that I am able to get the job, it would be temporary for 10 weeks, then after the company will choose to add me full time.

Well that is my post for today, I hope you all have a Fantastic Friday & a great weekend!

The Correct Way to Hold a Pencil {HELP!}

For some time now we have been trying to get Caleb to hold the pencil/crayon
the correct way.....well it ain't workin!! He is one stubborn little guy! Now that he
has started school, I know the teachers are working with him, but he is still holding it
in the pictures above.

Well I need some advice... what are some ideas, or suggestions you may have
on getting him to hold the pen, pencil, crayon the correct way?

Friday Football Fever!

Friday night we went to the local High School Football game, it was the first one I had been to since my time in High School... the 2 teams playing where from our town, it was like the county vs the city. It was a good game. I took pictures but only a few came out decent, I don't know my camera was having issues.....

Fabulous Friday Follow & Some Randomness

 Today I am trying a new Friday Blog hop..

 I believe this is Week 2 it's been going around, I am linking up with Marlessa over at Southern Reflections! Make sure to hop on over there, & check it out!

Okay, so Caleb has been sick since Wednesday, running a fever & sore throat. I took him to the Dr. yesterday & she said it was a virus, well he's doing much better today, so far NO fever! I hope it continues to stay that way, we want to go to the local High School Football game tonight! Looking foward to it, I've not been to a HS football game since I was in school{which I will not mention how long ago that's been}!

Taylor has yearbook pictures today, I always dreaded that day in school, alway's stressing over what to wear & the hassle of having to wear a ton of hairspray just to make sure your hair stayed put! I kept reminding her this morning to "Smile Pretty"!

Well happy blogging today & Have a great Friday!!

World's Finest!

World's Finest Chocolate!
Oh, how I love thee
You make me so happy!

Taylor is selling this Scrumdiddlyumptious candy bar at school!
This is by far my favorite & truth be told the only fundraiser I actually allow the
kids to sell, those catalogs are filled with over priced stuff & "gold" wrapping paper, I mean
I can't justify paying any more than THREE  dollars on a roll of paper that is just going to
end up in the trash, yeah it's pretty but are they really gonna remember what it's wrapped in? I think not!

Sorry to go off there! But like I said, I just love these candy bars they are so
yummy to my tummy! And the best part there only ONE dollar!
I remember one time when I was in school, I ended up eating the whole box.... boy was
my mama fit to be tied! Never did that again!!

Do your children sell this type of candy bar??

I see....

This is what Caleb is working on this week for Homework, today
he read all 7 of the sentences to me!  Talk about a proud mama! I'm sure
he has gotten this memorized, but I'd like to think he's actually reading this!
Who know's he just might!

I know I was fighting back tears as we went over this, I was so over joyed! Caleb would probaly
say I went a litte overboard in my reaction to this, in fact his words were "Mama you crack me up" &
in fact he wanted me to reinact my reaction, he thought it was so funny.

What was your reaction when your child first read to you??

A Little Monday Morning Manna

                                                                 Psalms 25

 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed , let not mine enemies triumph over me.
 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed : let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.  Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.  Remember , O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.  Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.  For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose .
 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
 The troubles of my heart are enlarged : O bring thou me out of my distresses.
 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
 Consider mine enemies ; for they are many ; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed ; for I put my trust in thee.
 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. 
 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Time Flies When Your Having Fun!

This morning as I was waiting with Taylor at the bus stop, I was just over come with just how quickly she has grown in the last year. I mean she's taking on the form of a young women, gone are the child like features she once had. She's gotten glasses, grown what seems like a foot, taken on  trying to take on  the "teenage attitude"  and is blossoming into a beautiful young lady. Then I realized she's still only 10 years old... to me seems like she should not be in Middle School, but as I watched her I realized she easily compared to some of the older kids that were out there as well!  I tell ya it's hard to wrap my thoughts around how fast this last year has really flown by.

Cherry on Top Award!

The Cherry on Top Award Rules are:

1. Answer this question: If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

2. Pick 6 people to share this award with.

3. THANK the person who gave you the award!

 I would like to say thank's to Annette at Echoes of Love Academy who chose me as one of her six! Not only is Annette a fellow blog friend, she's also a friend in the real world as well, we live in the same town, and  attend the same church. Thanks again Annette for thinking of me.

Question Answer:  I don't know that I would change anything,  maybe not made as many mistakes, but those mistakes  have helped in making me who I have become today. Maybe would have chosen to live my life for the Lord in my teenage/early adult life. But if you changed that one thing, would it alter your life completly? You've heard that saying "If I knew then, what I know now".  For me would have saved a lot of heartache & grief, but there's no going back......I must say I like it that way.

I am going to pass this award onto 6 ladies whose blogs I enjoy reading and are encouraged by:

Marlessa @ Southern Reflections                                 

Mimi @ He Me & 3

Tammy @ Matter of Fact

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma

Jenny @ The Southern Institute

Ria @ Life as a Wife!

Picture & Post

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! We had a pretty good one! Didn't do too much, stayed close to home.  I'm super busy today, so I will post a picture of a place we visited yesterday, I'm still working on getting the others edited. I'll post more later!

 So, we visited the local Water Park, Wet & Wild-Emerald Pointe with some friends yesterday & spent the day there. I didn't get as many pics as I would have liked, but I was in the water with the kids the majority of the day... and we all know water & camera's don't go together!
