Spreading the LOVE, Thank You and Awards!

I never really knew how strong of a person I was till the last year, but even though I'm strong 90% of the time there are days I get a little down. And that’s when my wonderful world of Blogging Buddies plays an even bigger part in my life than normal. In my good times and bad times you all are there for me and I want to thank each and everyone! Saturday just so happen to be one of my bad days and my friends came through for me and gave me a lift. Also, Chris B gave me an award that helped cheer me up. So, to spread the LOVE and cheer, I want to send this award to 7 of my Blogging buddies. (Now since I can only give this to 7 people it was hard to choose, but some of you have already got this award. Plus, Chris B had another award on her blog that she said all her faithful and honest Blogging buddies could have.) So, I would like to give the 1st award below to the 7 that I have chosen and the 2nd award to the 7 plus to rest of my wonderful Blogger buddies! Thank you, each and everyone!

Here is the 1st award and the 7:

1) Ami Mental I met her 4 years ago when I 1st started homeschooling and she has been there for me in good times and bad, all this time. I just love her blog and personality.
2)Holy I met her in the same home school board as Ami. She is a delite and sweet as pie!
3)Heather K She is another sweet home school mom that had a little boy a few months ago and needs all the love and support she can get. We have always been there for each other.
4)Wendy H is another home school mom I met last year. She is a very intelligent and lovely lady. I enjoy hearing her ideas and adventures with her little ray of sunshine.
5) Small Reflections (To show I'm not just picking home school mom's) This lovely lady has been a inspiration to me from the 1st time we met.
6)June Bug She has a very sweet and positive attitude. I seem to just click with her from the 1st time we met.
7) Not Jenny Here is another inspiring lady and home school mom. I Love to hear of her adventures of her little ones, plus we both try to be there for each other when possible.

(Now that I have passed this award to you, it's your choice to pass it along to 7 more friends and spread the LOVE!)
I wished I could have chose more than 7, but the rules for the 1st award says 7. So, since Chris B was so nice to share this 2nd award, I would to pass it on to the 7 and the rest of my wonderful blogging buddies.

A little update of my world

1- My mom is not doing well at all. I hate looking at each day and wonder if this is her last. They are going to get her a wheel chair to help reserve her air. She said no at 1st, but now has decided to comply with it. I wish the Dr's would explain all this a little better instead of.... She is going to die. I can't believe she has gone down so quickly. Some days I have hopes of her living a few more years, but don't know.
2- KB has been a very sick little girl! She has had a sinus infection, a throat infection, an ear infection and a virus on top of all that. The other night I had to take her to the ER about 11 PM because her fever was almost 104 and with everything I did it kept climbing. The next day she got worse. We had to go back to the hospital and give her IV fluids. Her blood pressure had drop rock bottom, her fever wouldn't drop and she was dehydrated. Two days later her gums are swelled up really bad and she has blisters all in her mouth. I took her to the regular Dr today. He told me I had a very sick little girl, like I didn't already know. He gave her 2 shots, something to help her mouth get better and told me if she didn't start drinking she would be back in the hospital tomorrow with more IVs. I feel the 2 shots have helped, she feels better today. I'm not sure what kind of virus, (he told me but I forgot) but he said he was a really bad one. It was one that last a little over a week instead of 24-72 hours like most viruses.
It's been really hard taking care of and momma, but I have and I survived!!!
3- I have finally figured out a schedule that helps me take care of momma and home school. I will post that in a few days.
Other than all that I'm good even though my house needs a little help! LOL!

I know everybody has their own life, but I just thought I would jot down a little bit of mine. Writing this post makes think of the saying... Momma always said there would be days like this! LOL!

A little bragging

I finally took Rocker Dude to get his permit today and he passed! I allowed him to drive us to church and he did a pretty good job!
I'm so proud of my little man~

Monday, August 25, 2008


Remember my mom's puppy she got last December for Christmas? While she was in the Hospital in February, Dan and I took care of him. Matter fact we had to keep him several months till she got well enough for us to take him home. With me going over every day he still thinks he is mine. (partly)He has got very protective of momma in the last few weeks. I'm not real sure what that is all about. Well, Topper is not the sweet little ball of fur any more! He thinks he is though. LOL! He will not be 1 till November and is hyper as hyper can get!
I wish I had got a better picture of him to show how big he really is, but maybe next time. (The 1st 2 pictures are when we had him, the next 2 are of what he looks like now.)

This will be the end of my number meme. Yes, I could go higher, but I'm not at this time. Hope you enjoyed!

Biblical Meaning: Ten: Government; law (commandments); order; tithe; measure; trial; testing. (Lev. 27: 32; Ex. 34: 28; Rev. 2: 10; 12: 3; Matt. 25:1-13) It also means completeness.

Number 9

Biblical Meaning: Nine: Fruit of the Spirit; gifts of the Spirit; finality; harvest; fullness of development. (Matt. 27: 45; Judges 4: 1-3; Gal. 5: 22-23; 1 Cor. 12: 4-11)

Meaning for me: But the fruit of the Spirit is... Love,Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness,Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control... Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
(I need a little more help on most of these)

I did this for Fun!

Your Expression Number is 9

An idealist and humanitarian, you strive to make the world a better place.

You do your best when you follow your feelings and sense of compassion.

Deep down, you dream of being loved by many.

You are capable of much human understanding and have a lot to give to others.

While you are very ambitious, you never lose site of perspective.

You have an abundance of creative talents... you just need to tap into them.

Although you are a giving person, you can become selfish if you are ignored.

If you are not able to help people, you tend to shelf your talents.

Without others, you become aloof and start to lack sensitivity.

Blog Things!

After visiting Small Reflections and ChrisB's I thought I would try this..... (Yep, that's just about me, except I don't drink tea. Well, maybe unsweet when we go out to eat or Spice tea in the winter.)

You Are Black Tea

You have a bold personality. You're not afraid of simply being yourself.

You have the courage to speak the truth. You are fearless in your actions.

You come off as a bit intimidating and unapproachable. Only confident people are attracted to you.

You don't try to scare off anyone. You're just an intense person!

Number 8

Meaning to me: My little Red (middle child) went back to public school this year and he is in the 7th grade. He also will be playing 7th grade football, which he made the 1st string as an outside line-backer. He is doing very well except for Science, but I feel once he catches on to how that teacher does it, he will do well. He is very excited about going back to school, so this makes me happy. I'm so well pleased that he has his interest back in learning. (He and I was doing nothing but clashing last year)
Also, I want to leave you with this little note.... (You may have to click on image to make it bigger.)

Word of warning!

With me doing my number meme and using the Biblical meaning of numbers I hope I do not offend any body. I do know I have friends that have all different kinds of beliefs. I'm not telling you this is the WAY, just sharing some that I have learnt.
Hope you have a happy!

Back to my Number meme!

Biblical meaning: Six: Man; beast; Satan; flesh; carnal; toil and strain of the flesh or natural realm; work; sorrow; secular completeness. (Rev. 13: 18; 1 Sam. 17: 4-7; Gen. 1: 26-31; 4: 17-18; 2 Peter 3: 8; 2 Sam. 21: 20; Num. 35: 15)
Meaning to me: I could not think of anything that pertained to me with the number six. Except maybe a 6 pack of diet dew, but because I don't like drinking out of a can, I'm not going to use that. Instead I thought I would share share a little about the Hebrew alphabet. The sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is called "Vav"
Here is a link to better explain...

KB's sleep over!

I sorta lied about not staying up all night with the girls, but in a way I didn't. We were having so much fun that I stayed up with the girls till 2:30 AM. They had a beauty contest and guess who won over all? Yep! KB! One of her friends fell asleep early, so there were only 2 in it. One of the other girls wanted to be a judge with my niece that helped me do the make overs. I didn't get of my nieces that I wanted to come over, but that is another rant, I mean post for another day. LOL!
Here are a few pics of our night and there is a few videos below this post.

Here are the 2 contestants.

Here is one of the judges.

Here is sleeping beauty.

Here is KB with her winning pic and T in 2nd place.

My great nephew had to get in the action.

Here they are getting jiggy with it!

Here the kids are playing a game.

My little princess and her beauty!

Here is my little princess showing off.

Jesus take the wheel

Here is KB singing during the talent part of her contest.
If I say so my self, she has a beautiful voice and breath to sing, but just needs to sing from down deep to make her voice louder. Do I see a singer in the future? I think I do!

Crank that! Birthday style

Is KB's dance for the dance contest at her spend the party!

Our birthday parties!

Today we had 2 parties in one. We wasn't able to have it at the park as planned because of rain, but it still turned out okay. (Now, next year we are either going to rent to pool in the next county or get a big water slide and have water balloons here for Aron's Big Blow Out (Sweet 16) party. Tonight KB is having a sleep over. They are going do make overs, have a dance contest, beauty contest, play games and whatever else they can think of. I will post those pics later. (If they don't forget to take any) I'm sure not staying up all night! LOL! I was smart; I got my 19 year old niece to come and stay up with them.
Here are a few pics of our day.......

Aron helped me do his guitar cake and KB helped with her castle cake. I think we did a great job!

Happy Birthday to my Baby Girl!!!

(We will have her party Saturday with Aron, which this year will land on his birthday.)

Happy Birthday to my Baby girl~ I love you bunches!

A little heads up about......

Biblical numbers. (Some numbers have more than one meaning. It's just depends on how it is used. What applies to one may not apply to another.) Like with words. Let me give you an example. The word love can be used in so many ways. Did you know that the word love is not used in Hebrew. They have a lot of other words that mean love from the English language.
There is also more in depth studies like Biblical Mathematics and Numerology.
I just thought this would be neat to share.
Hope you enjoy my little meme!
(I'm going to try and keep this little reminder up top as a reminder while I do my meme. So, All other post will be below this.)

Meaning for me: I have been fortunate enough to have 2 families of 5 in my life time. 1st is my mom, 3 brothers and myself. My mom did a wonderful job being a nurse and raised 4 kids all by herself. 2nd is my family I have now; Dan, our kids and myself.

(Both of these pics are several years old. The last one is when Dan and I renewed our vows 3 years ago. Plus, this is an aweful picture of me! It also shows really how much my kids have grown in 3 years, mostly Aron)
