We have been busy around here. We got all the Christmas stuff down and put away on the 27. I miss looking at the tree but it was time! Cade and I both had Doctors appts. and we have had a nephew over. We have enjoyed staying up late and sleeping in!
And now about GOALS, I have been seeing people make goals for 2010. I think that this is a gret idea and I have really been pondering mine! I really want something doable and some goals that will make me feel better. I have a hard time with "balancing" my life. I LOVE to sew but I like a clean house and I really need to work on a more healthy lifestyle. I am overweight and I have very high blood pressure (I had it even when I was thin and a runner) but being over weight is really bad for it! I also enjoy my computer time. and honestly, if I'm in a rush my first thing to give up is my morning Bible time! That makes me very sad to admit that! I'm going to take a few days and think about balance and my goals! Any thoughts? Any of you have any ideas about balance? I dont know if its time managment or if I'm just not clear on what I want my life to be.
I will posts pictures from Christmas soon! Thanks for reading!

Ruby looking down from above!
I hope that everyone has a happy Monday! I am so thankful that we only have 1 week left of school. I think the kids are getting crazy and the teachers are getting grumpy! I will be more than happy to have my kids home! Do I sound like a Mom that got a snippy note from a teacher?

So this sweet little boy got an early Christmas present!! A day off from school! He has enjoyed himself, staying in his p.j.s and making a mess in the livingroom!! I enjoy having him here!
Thank you for the anniversary wishes! We had a nice day! We went out for coffee, did some shopping then went to a Japanese restaurant for lunch! Since our anniversary is so close to Christmas we usually wait and celebrate in February. My birthday is the 16 so we celebrate my birthday, Valentine's day and our anniversary then.
This is Wendy. She is my sister's dog but has lived with us for years. We feed her. She likes to hang out with our little dof Brick. They do go visit my sister and lay on her porch. My sister still hasnt decided what she will do with Wendy. I have told her that we would be happy to have her here. I guess I will just have to wait and see!
Have a great day!

My girl is home. I think that she needs to do some running around in the morning. The rest of the day will be spent doing her laundry, some cooking for the dishes that I will take to my Mother-in-laws and I hope some sewing! I hope that everyone enjoys getting ready for the BIG feast! Thanks for reading! Libby

Our Sunday was my favorite kind of day! Cold rainy and windy. Andy was at the fire dept. so the boys and I went to the early church service, grabbed some McDonalds and got ourselves back home! I put my pjs on and went right to sewing (and laundry,dishes,picking up) I sewed most of the day. Cade wanted to go to a friends house but I put him on restriction. I happened to walk by his Sunday School class just in time to see him up, running across the table!! His teacher (a sweet college girl) looked stunned!! I was embarrassed but not surprised!! That kid is always into something! Other than that it was a nice relaxing day!
Today I need to get my grocery shopping done. Hopefully early. Andy's sister drove in from Florida last night and will be staying at Andy's mom's house. That is where we have our Thanksgiving. I know that Cade is going to want us to go get his cousin for him to play with, That havent been together since last summer.
Everbody have a great Monday! Thanks for reading! Libby

My problem is that I have finished up my 9 patches, I'm all ready to sash them. When I started this quilt I just did a block a day, using scraps. I had no plans for this quilt until I noticed that it was turning out girly and I found out that my sister and her family were moving. I decided then that I could give it to my niece. I started using some of the scraps from items that I had made for her. I still want to give it to her but...I want to make another quilt first....now, why do I feel bad about this???? Is it because I usually finish 1 before I start the other or because the one quilt is for a little girl who has to move?? (they are moving around the first week of Dec. so I was going to have to give it to her after the move)
Finally, here is an old picture of Ruby. This is one of my favorite pictures of her, it shows her "true, sweet nature!!!"
Have a great day! Thanks for reading, Libby

The first funny thing was when they went on a call where trees had fallen on power lines and knocked out a bunch of power poles and alot of people's electricity. A news truck showed up and wanted some pictures and to interview my husband (he was the Captain in charge) he didnt want to but did a long 15 minute interview. Back at the firehouse everyone was kidding him about the interview and they all gathered to watch the news. The news showed about 3 seconds of my husband and the firemen then they spent about 8 minutes on a follow up story with a citizen who was complaining about not having any power 'cause he "can't even boil me a hot dog"
The second call that Andy told me about was the Rescue truck got a call to a retirement community. An older man was having trouble breathing and the Doctors wanted him to go to the hospital. He refused and pitched a fit, demanding to see someone in charge. My husband was called to the scene. The Doctor said that he wanted the man restrained and sent to the hospital. Andy tried to talk to the man and checked his signs (he is a paramedic) and told him that he really should go to the hospital. Well, the man got SO mad! He told Andy "I am a Christian and if you say another word, I hope that Jesus strikes you dead! Well! How is that for a "Thank You"? He also wanted the police to come and "escort Andy out of his apartment" He had a crazy day!
