I'm Alive!!!!

I have not had internet all weekend due to the storms we had on Friday...
I had an amazing weekend!
I got my hair freshened up, my nails and toes done, shopped, ate like a queen, and most importantly...
I spent time with my family that I don't get to see very often. My aunt, uncle, and cousins live in New Mexico and we see them once a year. (Not often enough!) I totally miss them and wish we were closer...my "little" cousins...are AMAZING kids. They are 20 and 15 and awesome examples of teenagers/young adults living for Christ. Kelsey is 15, an amazingly beautiful redhead and has the voice of an angel. On Sunday at church (she always sings when they visit) she sang with Matthew, her brother. It was so awesome to be there. She also sang alone and sang God Still Answers Prayers. What a simple song, but with oh so powerful true words!!
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER


THE LORD IS NOT TOO BUSY THAT HE CAN’T REACH DOWN
AND MEND A BROKEN HEART AND MY BURDEN IS NOT TOO HEAVY
THAT HE CAN’T HEAR A PLEA OF FAITH
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER___
IN HIS TIME HE’LL WORK A MIRACLE
HE WILL NEVER FAIL.
SATAN HAS LOST THE BATTLE
WHEN TO THE LORD YOU HUMBLY BOW
GOD STILL AN-SWERS PRAYER!
IF YOU FEEL THAT LIFE IS HOPELESS
AND THE NIGHT HAS NO END
THERE’S HOPE FOR YOUR HURTING HEART
FOR HE’LL BE THERE WITH YOU
NO MATTER WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH
GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER!

Last night we kicked off VBS 2009 at our church, and I will say it was quite different. This year our church is working on a different budget, there are less kids, but the word of God is the same...I am supposed to be doing the nursery, but with two babies and one who screams for her mama, there's not much going on in there. :) The kids had a lot of fun and are looking forward to tonight.

Someone had Emailed me and asked me about the house situation and I guess I never blogged about it, but we decided not to buy the one house. It just seemed like the best thing, we got into a bidding war and I loved the house more than Scotty.

So, this weekend we found a dreamy log cabin on lots of land (perfect for Daddy) and at a fab price. We made an offer (a good one) on the spot. The next day we learn we are in a short sale situation and we need to up our price for the bank...we did and apparantly just learned that the listing agent had his own offer and rejected ours. He never even sent it to the bank...so unethical. I want to scream!!!! But, I really don't know what can be done. We just feel like we lost out on something great and fabulous for our family, but apparantly there is a reason for it.


Here is a pic of my piggies...can you make it out??
Yep, they are juicy watermelons.:) I got this idea and decided to ask my nail girl to do it, and it was hard to get her to understand me, but I love them!!! And yes, that is part of my tattoo (that I wish I didn't have!)
Well, I am off to get ready for VBS!


Happy Tuesday!
