Well, Sunday was wonderful! It was just one of those day's that everything seems to go right =)

Sunday afternoon we were practicing for our Christmas Musical "The heart of Christmas" and I just kept getting so emotional thinking about the fact that my parents are going to come. Tim and I are in the musical. I'm in the choir and Tim will be singing a solo. The fact that my parents are coming is HUGE. They never really want to do anything that has to do with church but I think because Tim and I are actually going to be in it and have worked hard on it they want to see what has been accomplished. I'm also inviting some unsaved family and pray that they will receive the gift of eternal life.

I just wanted share this since it was on my heart!

a few quotes....

"it's alright for the ship to be in the water but its not ok for the water to be in the ship" ship-christians; water- world

"you will meet the same devil wherever you go. So stay Strong in the Lord"

Gotta Love the Holidays!

A picture taken off my parents pretty.....

Thanksgiving has passed and Christmas is soon to arrive.

Thanksgiving was so great! I mean you have the HUGE roasted turkey, with stuff, mashed potatoes, green bean cassarole, deviled eggs, gravey and everything is HOMEMADE!! YUM!!

I finally got to meet my sister-in-law! She is such a doll! She has the greatest accent and has funny names for things. They went to get ice cream and she said "I want some of those bits and pieces (reffering to sprinkles)" and they were packing to head back to CA and my mom asked her if they had clothes for the next day and she said "Brad has trousers upstiars". I about died! She is to cute! and you gotta love the accent!!

Tim and I have been extremley busy. It seems like we have to stay up late just to find time for each other. I guess thats part of being a grown up but its just not as fun ;)

I have become very busy at work. It likes like I will be putting in 50+ hours the next few weeks. I guess thats a good thing since the holiday seasons are coming up. It just takes a toll on the body and I become! I know that is probably why Tim has avoided me (just kidding.....i think).

Tim headed to Michigan this weekend for his cousin wedding. He then went to ohio to see his brother Ken and his family. I really wish I could have been there. There wer so many friends and family. *sigh* Its ok though...I know one day...I will be able to spend eternity with them :)

My family is doing ok. I just saw my two uncles whom I haven't seen in about a year. They both have cancer and look as if it is winning. It was really hard to hold back tears. It has taught me that life is too short and that forgiving and forgetting is a MAJOR part of life. I have alaways loved my uncles but have hated many of the choices they have made. It hurts me to see them and their famlies suffer. I pray for them, that they will be overcome this battle and learn from it.

I have been doing ok health wise. The holidays have been harder for me this year. I got to the doctor on Monday and I'm pretty sure I am going to make the choice to have the weight loss surgery. My body is just to much to deal with. it doesn't seem to do what it's supposed to do and It holds me back from SOOOO much! It is so upsetting to watch what you eat, excersize and not see ANY results.....but anways...enough of the pitty party...

Well Tim will be home tonight so I want to make sure the house is clean and that he comes home to a nice HOME cooked meal ;)

May God bless you and yours...
