This MawMaw’s heart is full to overflowing.  I have had lots of MawMaw time this weekend.  Thank you Lord!  First, a picture of Sam.  It will not be long until this swing is too small for him but he sure does enjoy it.

Daniel and Gilbert taking a small rest.  Gilbert is Daniel’s kittie, an early Christmas gift.  He loves Gilbert very much-sometimes maybe a little too much.  Gilbert is a very good kittie though and takes it all in stride.

Alexius and Branson.   Playing with kitties.  Kittens and kids just go so well together.

Landon-wearing PawPaw’s hat.   We went down to Jessica’s for Thanksgiving.  She had a wonderful meal.  Turkey with all the trimmings.  Of course, we all ate too much.  Then we did a little shopping on Friday.  When we came home Friday evening it was very cold here.  A huge change in temperature.  At her house it was fairly warm but not here.  The wind was fierce with gusts of about 40 mph.  Inside our house it was very cold, 56 degrees.   Needless to say, we hurried up and built a fire.

Yesterday when we came back from practicing at church, we had a message on our machine.  Chuck was coming for a visit!  He lives in West Virginia so we do not get to see him or his babies very often.  It was such a nice visit.  We had canned deer, mashed potatoes, green beans, blackberry cobbler and homemade rolls. 

Today, we will be doing the music at church.  The girls will be playing a congregational each and each will be doing one special.  Hubby and I will-with 3 others- will be doing 2 specials.  Pray that all goes well.  I hope you all enjoy your Sunday and God bless.

Sunrise

I just love to see a sunrise or a sunset.  I think it comes from living in the mountains of southwest virginia.  Where I grew up, you never saw either one. Our house was in what we call a “holler” so the view was blocked by the mountains.  The sun would hit our yard about 11:00 and go down about 3:00.  I guess thats one of the reasons I love living here in Floyd.  In the summer, the sun is in our yard about 6:30 and leaves about 8:00.  Lots of sunshine, which I love.  This morning God put on another show for us to enjoy.  Thank you Lord!  School today as usual.  It is hard to concentrate on school now though.  We feel like we’re been let out of prison.  The temperatue is warm, the snow is almost gone, so of course everyone wants to be outside instead of in.  We try to mix a little of both so it doesn’t get to bad.  Jasper (young dog) had his first experience with a skunk last night.  Not very pleasant.  I tried a remedy one of the ladies from church told me about.  I sprayed him with Febreeze.  It actually helped quite a lot.  He still smells but not as bad. I don’t have to cook tonight, we are eating  at church.  Roast beef and potatoes with all the trimmings.  It has been a long time since we went to church on Wednesday night.  When the weather is bad, they call it off.   I am definitely looking forward to going tonight.  The girls are involved in TeamKids there at church.  They alternate Wednesdays doing childrens choir and handbells.  They really enjoy the handbells.  The adults are doing a Beth Moore study on the fruit of the spirit.  It has been a really good study so far, however we are pretty far behind because of the bad weather we’ve had this winter.   They have decided not to watch the video that goes with it, in order to hopefully get it finished in May.  Guess I better get ready to go.  Take care and God bless.
