Dh had gotten some wonderful gift cards from where he works and we have been very excited about using them. They are for alot of fast food places but a couple were used to buy christmas presents. Dh traded one with his brother in order to purchase me a new camera:) I used one in order to save $120 on a pair of work boots he needed. Poor thing, his had holes in the bottom of them. So basically we got a camera and a pair of work boots for $80. It would have easily cost over $400 without the cards. God is good. My in laws also shared with us some food that they had recieved from the church. We got popcorn chicken, gatorade, cough drops, and some school supplies. I am excited about the school supplies because my momma bought me a new dry erase board for our school room and now I am feel renewed about school work;)
I need to go and finish some laundry. Everyone have a blessed day.

I wanted to tell you about what my children did to Moses. Last year for Christmas, I bought them the dolls/action figures that talk and are from the bible. I don't remember what they are called but they have Moses, David, Ester, and Mary. They seem to like playing with them in dd's doll house. The other night, I heard them in the bathroom so I went to investigate. Of course, I sneeked up on them thinking I was going to catch them tearing up something. When I saw what I saw, I was speechless. There on our counter was Moses. He was stripped off to his undies and sitting on the toy potty from dd's doll house. When I finally could speak, I asked dd what he was doing. "Moses is pooping momma!!" O-k-a-y. I always wanted my kids to relate to people of the bible as real people and not a fairy tale but this is pushing it. What are you going to do with him, I ask. "When he is done, I will wipe his butt and flush for him." Oh my!!! I watched her and sure enough she got some tp and pretended to wipe him and flush. It is never a dull moment around her. Christ himself must of had to laugh. Blessings and have a good day.

You Are Cinderella!
Dignified and hard working. With a gentle and soft-spoken manner you have something many people don't. Patience. Even through the moments of heartbreak you're still able to hold onto all of your hopes and dreams. Bide your time; your dream will come true.
Which Disney Princess Are You?
My momma would so disagree. This was taken from A peachy keen life's blog.

Your Love Life is Like The Princess Bride
"Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind."
For you, love is like a fairy tale - albeit a fairly twisted one.
You believe romance is all about loyalty, fate, and a good big of goofy fun.
Your love style: Idealistic yet quirky
Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Perfectly romantic

5yo must have confused what was going on with Sunday school earlier that day because he looked at us and said yes, you are going to walk on water. Of course, we busted out laughing. We had to try to explain it again. Later that day he was telling his cousin about the day's events. I overheard him say, "today we went to see mom and dad hypnotised. ROFL. I guess he will understand in due time and we will miss his funny little mix ups. God Bless!!!!

I also need to get some soil at the store for our seeds. I hope to one day have a compost so I don't have to buy soil. I have to get deer feed too since we are having them in our yard regularly. I am going to feed them for 2 reasons. One is dh is hoping to feed them and fatten them up to harvest this year for meat. The other reason is that we garden and they have already been in the garden several times. If dh sales one of his trucks then we are going to get fencing to put around it though. Well, gotta get to our errand running. See ya.

Subject: FW: Religious Maxine
Maxine was driving down the street in a sweat because she had an important
meeting and couldn't find a parking place.
Looking up toward heaven, she said, 'Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a
parking place I will go to church every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up sex and tequila.'
Miraculously, a parking place appeared.
She looked up again and said, 'Never mind. I found one. '

What if I told you that we have a fuel source right here at home that is projected to provide 57 percent of America's electricity by 2030. This fuel source, that is exported to 25 countries, is found in abudence in the USA. With the USA having the largest reserves of any country in the world. This fuel could be to the United States as oil is to the Middle East. Yes, you heard that right. So what is this fuel? It is simply coal.
Coal that is in abudence here in the US is quite possibly the future for this country. Coal has been underated for far to long. Now before you go and think coal is nasty and it is bad for the environment let me share a few facts with you. US power plants that use coal have lowered emmissions by 70 percent since 1970 while tripling production, according to the US Deptartment of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory. It also admitts that new plants built today emits 90 percent fewer pollutants than the plant it typically replaces.
Coal is also being studied to find ways to covert it to liquid fuel. The technology to do this is already here. Funding from the federal government is needed to ensure that the coal is burned as clean as possible at a reasonable price.
Some even believe that coal to liquid technology could burn even less that imported fuel sources.
Now, I know that coal is a non renwable resource, but there is projected to be 290 billion tons of recoveable US coal. That is after 3 centuries of production. (Coal facts 2007) That is a lot of coal.
I feel that coal would eliminate our dependence on foriegn fuels. I can not understand why the government will not push for funding for this remarkable resource. Clean coal technology would not only provide a fuel source, but it would also provide thousands of jobs to stimulate the weakened US economy. Clean coal technology combined with existing fuel sources in the US could virtually eliminate our dependence on foriegn oil making our world a safer, cleaner, and more affordable one.

Have a great holiday. May it be filled with family, fun, and most importantly faith. Remember the true reason we celebrate Resurrection Sunday. Jesus Christ offered himself up as the sacrificial lamb for our sins. So that we may have everlasting life with our Savior. Make sure to tell your children the story of the resurrection and tell them how precious our savior is. May God bless you and yours.
