~*~Turbo wanting to get on the trampiline~*~

~*~Awww..he loves outside soooooooo much~*~

~*~Bre, Michael, Kayce, Tyler & Billy watching Hyles Andersons Valentine Banquet Play~*~

Well its Friday again......I cannot believe Tyler has come and gone. Where did the week go?!?! I hate that I was sick while he was here for Spring Break. :( But we still had a super great time. After he got to the college last night he text me 'thank you mom & dad for a GREAT spring break at home. ' :) So glad he has a place to come home too. Wonderful grandparents, wonderful church, great friends. God is just soooooooooo good to us. My highlight was hearing him preach Wednesday night. What mom wouldn't be proud of their 19 year old son preaching at the church he has grown up in? Thanks to my preacher & my dad for allowing that to happen. He was able to hang out with both GODLY sets of grandparents,his dad & sister, his girlfriend, his best friend, his puppy Turbo and dog just doesn't get better than that, huh?! And man o man did he fall in love with Billy's drums. h aha I swear the kid can do anything he sets his mind too. He had NEVER played in his life and picked up the drumsticks and played along with his Ipod. Too awesome! (he had played maybe 3 hours at the most when he let me record him playing this video)

The house seems so quiet right now. Billy's at work, Bre's at work, Tyler's at college, the animals are all sleeping and I am updating my blog. Hmmmm! You can seriously hear a pin drop in our house. Is this my new reality? Bre graduates within the next year, and I'm well....going to have empty nest syndrome! AHHH!!!!

Keep praying for me a job. I went to a great interview yesterday and hope to hear from them by Tuesday. The guy introduced me to other employees like I was already one of them. :) I'm trying hard not to get to excited about it because the disappointment hurts to bad.

Well thats my quiet little nest for now.........I love you all!!!!

Oh and how adorable is my nephew Trenton singing. Tyler and the boys at church made a CD and Trenton fell in love with the song Joshua. Soooo when mom came by my house with Trenton Wednesday he sang Joshua to Tyler. And well....he did so great he sang it in church Wednesday night with the boys!!!!! SOooooooo precious in his litle black suit. Hope you got to see him. If not enjoy my little video!!!!! :)

My husband is building doghouses...and selling them for $125!!!! Does anyone need one?! or can you please pass it along that he is selling them?!? He has another one that is awesome!!!! (green with a front porch on it and windows--Victorian looking but I don't have a picture of it) He is hoping to take custom orders (Nascar house, or a doghouse like the owners home)
I'm sooooooooooooo proud of him!
He's trying to buy a pickup truck now so he can buy wood and be able to deliver the doghouses...please pray he finds one SOON! (he sold his car to Codi at church and is borrowing my dads vehicle for now!)

Tyler is home for Spring Break. His girlfriend Kayce is in her cousins wedding tonight.... so he is with her at the wedding. (he just text me 'weddings are SO boring...they are doing pictures now') haha Funny!!! He looked all cute in his suit headed out the door...I love him! Oh and speaking of Tyler...I have never seen anyone love to sing more than he does. He has listened to CD's...showed me new songs...and has sung all day long! Patty told me she came in from work last night (at 12:30 this morning ) and Tyler, Pete and Sam were...... SINGING!!!! This was after traveling all day and just getting into town..(Tyler was dropping off Michael) Those boys!!!! Kayce loves to sing too. She made Hyles Andersons tour group and will be traveling with them this summer. (and coming to our church to sing in June)

Thank God it looks like we will have GREAT weather while he's home! Breanna's very excited to have Michael home for Spring Break, too.

Please pray for me to get a job soon. I have another interview Monday and am so sick right now. I certainly wouldn't hire me looking or sounding like this! haha :) The Dr. told me she thought I should be feeling a lot better by tomorrow or call her for an antibiotic. I received a call today from a company I interviewed at twice already and they may have me back for one more interview. He wanted me to know they have narrowed it down to two and I'm one of them! I'm just praying God opens and closes doors as HE sees fit. (Mondays interview is with Karey Morgan's boss Sherry... husbands work) It seems like a great company, too.

Thanks for all your love and encouragement to me! I love you all!

Just keep swimming :) Happy Spring..... :)

Whats Up & Hyles Angels Sleepover :)

SATURDAY NIGHT! THE GIRLS WERE WONDERFUL!!!! We had a scavenger hunt at the park, went to chik fil a for the school fundraiser, played Twister, watched a movie, jumped on the trampoline, ate chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream for breakfast and headed to church together on Sunday. It reminded me of the huge responsibility our preacher & God trust me with to teach these girls. I've had soooo many girls come through my class and if I can help prepare just one...then I've done my part. As they jumped on the trampoline, I was reminded of all their different personalities and thanked God he didn't make us all alike. Thank God
there's only one me! LOL I immediatly thought
of all the girls that have been through my class
over the years. (to name a few.....Misty, Kayce, Brittany, Kasey, Karey,Amanda, my Breanna and all the girls that are now in the teen group ) If I can make a difference in just one ..I've done my part!

Continue praying for my job hunt. I was so upset Friday when I found out I didn't get the HCA job I wanted but God knows. (everyone keeps telling me HE has the perfect job waiting for me....I so hope they're right! And I really hope the perfect job isn't this part time daycare position I've been offered...AHHH!!) LOL But it would be money coming in and I will be grateful for that!!! Thank you to all my wonderful friends who listen to me whine, cry, vent......I love you guys!!!!

I was blessed with a $100 Walmart gift card given to me Sunday anonymously, $35 Walmart gift card from my fabulous secret sister, $20 anonymously in a very sweet card to me, $50 given to me to send Tyler, and $20 given to me by Diane Farmer to send Tyler) Does God Love Me or what?!?! I already bought tons of groceries with the Walmart cards!!!! :) We have the GREATEST church and friends in the world and I can't say thank you enough for all the love and kindness they've shown to me and my family!!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Just keep Swimming! (which reminds me....we
had a great ladies meeting last night and Amber
did a great job with the food and meeting.She's awesome! Over 30 ladies were there on a Monday night...which is excellent!!! We are drawing new missionary groups in April so if you're not in a group...we'd love to have you !!!Heather gave an EXCELLENT devotion on
"Are you building a brickhouse?" I know I have some sand in my brickhouse that is making me weak...thanks for the reminder,'re the best..Me & my Bre love you)

What a blast its been! We are missing Tyler horribly!!! He's always been here for our snow days and Bre's sure missed him. I've tried hard to be her playmate :) but I know I don't compare to his sillyness...... Turbo has also been a lot of fun for her. We've been sending him lots of pictures. (not to make him homesick but to let him know we miss him and brag on our snow!) ha!

My parents and sister lost power and came to spend the night with us last night. WHAT A GREAT TIME....made some fun memories!!! :) Their power came on this afternoon...and although I'm happy for them...I'm sad they will be leaving us :( Thank you God for the snow and the time to sit back with family and make some memories!

Hope you've all had a great time. Love you! God is good...all the time!

ps. please continue praying for my job search! Its been so hard to not have the income coming in but I've LOVED LOVED LOVED the time with Bre homeschooling....and now the Snow Days home with my family!!!! What a blessing we've had...during a trial ........
