I will survive....

A good man draws a circle around himself, and cares for those within, his woman, his children. Other men draw a larger circle and bring within their brothers and sisters, But some men have a great destiny they must draw around themselves a circle that includes many many more. Your father was one of these men. You must decide for yourself whether you are as well.
~ Movie "1O,OOO BC"

I hope I copied that right, my notes I can't even read sometimes. LOL!
Our teacher Mrs. Diamond, got this off the movie "10,000 BC". It's not the greatest movie and she did not recommend it but as she points out a lot, God made this world and you can't help not to put him into everything, even if you don't believe in him.
God has a way of turning evil into good. You could mean it a totally different way, and God would turn it into something else. God will always get his way.
Anyway, I still have a sore throat that hurts like strep. Mom tells me it's not because it doesn't have white spots, but it sure feels like it!!!! I finally got some numb stuff, so it doesn't hurt so bad.
Well like you really wanted to know all that. I leave at this. Goodbye.

Levi's here!!!!

This is "Levi" my new puppy.

He is a golden retriever and a beautiful one at that!

He and I played in the yard a little while, but he sleeps a lot when he's in the house, mom says that is normal for a puppy. He is sooo cute, I hope he'll get along OK with the cats and Scrappy soon. Dixie hates him. :( He's just a misunderstood little thing. I love him.







I'll post often on him.

Family Pictures.... funny!

Mom tried getting a good picture of the family for Christmas cards before Olivia left for SC. Well, as you can tell it didn't really work. If someone looks good in one, the other looks like a "retarded squirrel". So we will just have to pick from the others we have from this year.

Ohhh... almost forgot, Grandma was taking these, so she always says things like "cheeseburger" or something. So the second picture she said, "Act like your greeting someone at the door." Of course someone really close to me or they would think I really have problems! I do... but that's not the issue right now.:0) It's so hard getting a good family picture!!!! I have so much fun.




Ohhh that's so funny!

I wanted all the animals to be in it but Dad said
that wasn't a good idea. Considering that I have 8 of them.

Random cat pictures.....








Hope you had a great Thanksgiving of feasting and giving thanks to God for our many blessing. Most of which we don't even realize until we have to do without them. There was plenty I wanted to post about around this great day, but I got a busy.... Well I guess blogging around holidays is not the best thing to do. To much going on.

We went to the Whites for dinner Thursday and had a lovely time.
Thank you guys.:0)
I have a blog, facebook, and a life, I try blogging everyday, sometimes you can't do it all.
Everydays a gift, use it wisely.

Bullwinkle and Popcorn.....

Your not going to believe what I found at a "thrift store"!

A pair of "Bullwinkle" slippers. Couldn't believe it myself, just my size and they are so cute!

And on top of that I got a really nice pair of pants too:0)

Today went very well! I got some school in, and at the end of the day the family sat down and watched a movie and ate POPCORN. Oh, that's gotta be the best food on the earth... I'm weaning myself of bagged ( because it's so bad for ya) and went to stove top. It always turns out like on picture number 2 below.

I don't mind, we just throw the leftovers out for the birds.


















Sooooo Cute!!!!!



Cake anyone?


Saturday was the chili super for the fire department. Since Dad is a vol. firemen we all always go and help at the events they hold.




Well, Mom and Olivia did the money, Dad help with anything that needed to be done, he was on it. :0) You can always find me in the kitchen if I can't be found! No seriously, I was helping with serving the food.









The cake walk is another thing they do at the chili super.




















It took 7 or 8 $ (I think) to win a Italian cream cake. Ohhh it's so good, it's in the freezer now. It was such fun to be able to serve people and supporting the fire dept. through our community.





After it all, we counted $172.00, cake walk alone.





I didn't get any pictures of me actually working, I did work though. :0) Interesting enough we had I guess what you call live bluegrass /gospel, like I said, it was interesting! Several of the firemen gathered around with their instruments and some local church folks sang old hymns, between dueling banjos and other fun stuff.

Okay that's all I have to say, hope I wasn't boring with my ramblings. I get carried away a lot.


Thanking God for my life.
