Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was extremely busy. We had company come in from out of town on Friday night (really Sat. morning) and they just left this morning to head home. We have some friends that live in Texas that have a very large motor home. They have made several trips here to MO bringing a group of teenagers and sometimes young couples for a visit. They usually make a long weekend out of it and we fill it with lots of events. Friday night we had other company for dinner before the motor home made it here. Then Sat. we had about 43 people to our home for a hamburger cookout, basketball, Frisbee football and other games. Sunday was a full day with a Christian meeting in the morning followed by lunch and then a skate night at the local roller rink in the evening. Monday night we also got together with these same friends for a Pizza & Salad Dinner. Then this morning, they loaded up and headed back to Texas. We had a great time of fellowship and fun times with them. In the midst of all this, my daughter had a piano recital and my niece had a baby. My niece and nephew, along with her parents, were the company we had for dinner on Friday while waiting for the out-of-town company to arrive. They left our house at around 11:30 pm to take their other little ones home to bed. She went into labor and had her baby by 1:30 am. She was not in labor when they left our house. That tells you what a fast labor and delivery she had. Fortunately, she was already planning on having it at home because I don't think she would have made it to the hospital. She and baby are doing great. If you have read my previous posts, you know that we have/had 3 moms-to-be due in the last month. This birth was the second so we only have one more to go. She has another week and a half until her due date but you just never know when these babies want to make their appearances. We are so thankful to the Lord for his blessings and protection for the moms and babies. The first two births have been fairly easy and the babies healthy. We pray for the same for the next one and can't wait to see if it is a boy or a girl. The first two have been boys so we are hoping for a girl on this one. :) But really, as long as it is healthy we really don't care. I would love to show you pictures but due to privacy for these families, I don't feel at liberty to do that. Maybe if I get permission I will be able to share one at a later time. Those of you who know me personally and these families personally will be able to see pictures on my Picasa album. If you have not received an invitation and would like one, email me and I'll see that you get one. Now let's see, I've covered the company we had, the new babies, oh yes, now the giveaway. I am going to have a giveaway soon. I can't give you a specific date because I am not going to have it until I have at least 10 followers. I am at 8 now so if you want this giveaway to hurry up and happen, let your friends and family know so they can sign up to follow. Once I see that 10 people are following, I will set a time for the giveaway. There will be several items to choose from if you are the winner so keep checking back for updates. When I post the official giveaway announcement, I will tell you everything you can do to increase your chances of winning. I'm getting excited just thinking about it! Maybe it will be this week. So until next time...
Have a blessed day,
