Giveaway Winner, Prayer Requests, and Edward

I finally got around to choosing a winner for the giveaway I posted before my surgery in January. Almost 3 months later. But I didn't forget! And I sorta changed the rules...if you posted or said you would pray for me you were entered.

Congrats to Stacey over at McCrakensX4. I am so thankful for ALL your prayers during the time of my surgery!!!

Several people have been heavy on my heart this week. Most of you know about the problems little Stellan is having but if you aren't up to speed please head over to MckMama's blog and find out.

Next, heavy on my heart has been my sweet friend's son, Philip. So head over to AmyB's blog to find out about Philip. And while you're there, take some to time learn about Amy and the issues she is dealing with. Here's another family that could use some prayer warriors to lift them up.

Now on the lighter side. Edward Cullen. sigh The problem is with the sigh. See, it's not how most people sigh when they swoon over the name Edward. I am really out of the loop when it comes to Twilight. Haven't read the books and until a couple hours ago hadn't seen the movie. In fact, after the movie started I found out he was a vampire. My sigh is the sigh of someone who is slightly let down by Edward. I just didn't swoon. The movie was... decent/weird/twisted/vampire-ish. It just didn't click with me. Maybe I'll be more intrigued once I read the books. Just give me time I suppose. I'd really rather spend my time obsessing about a group of people who were in a plane crash on an island and are LOST. That I love.

My Strong Little Man

Yeah, he dropped it on his foot.
Yeah, I kept taking pictures. Bad mommy, I know.

Wordless Wednesday

Wordless except for saying that these pictures are lousy. The girl is cute but I shot away without paying attention to my ISO and it was set way too high because I was playing around with it last night. Oops. So just look at the pictures and tell me how cute she is but don't mention all the noise in them. :)

Wordless Wednesday

What's a girl supposed to do when she gets beautiful flowers and can't find a vase?

My house....where sophistication & redneck live in harmony.

Family Day

First we started with a little picnic.

She just ate a little mac & cheese, not the shoe. Well, the shoe did spend time in her mouth too.

A trip to a local tunnel.

It goes back about 800 feet and was cold and damp. We had our flashlights and had some exploring fun.

Then the guys climbed up some rocks.

Finally a decent family picture. Gotta love a remote for a camera.

Then to a waterfall.

The guys hiked down to the bottom and had fun in the water. Well, the little guy did!

A great day!!!!

How Great is Our God

Lately, this song has meant so much to me. Every time I hear it on the radio I have to stop what I'm doing, turn it up, and worship. For me these days, that means a lot of crying. In a good way. Take time to listen to even a little. Let it play while you surf or facebook! :) Just click on the picture.

A Bit of Snow

We got snow today but most of my pictures were taken before it became too white and pretty. By the time it was so beautfiul we were frozen and back inside. We actually got a few inches and it's a rare treat for around here.

The little princess of the house stayed inside warm and cozy.
