We Have A Volunteer Fireman Now !
The game is still on....see post below!!!! You all are doing sooooo good with captions!!! It is going to be very difficult. Winner announced on Friday at noon, central time, are your lips smacking for Anna's yummy Toffee Bars? Hey, you can watch the movie and enjoy a dessert!!
Elijah(18) has volunteered for our local fire department here. Last night he went to another meeting and he received his gear, coat, helmet, pants, boots, gloves and all! He has more training meetings but if he gets a call and is available he will go out. I guess all I can think of is the movie Fireproof, hopefully it will be a smaller scale!!! Being the mom, I am a bit on edge, but don't tell Elijah. So this morning all the little ones and I went outside and did a Playmobile simulation and made "Elijah" put out a grass fire! They thought it was neat!!! Seems like when they get bigger, the prayers have to be bigger!!!! PROTECTION!!!!
Anna and I went thrift store shopping yesterday. We bought 27 items and it cost us $85 for all, so averaged a little over $3 per item.....not bad!! We only found Bethany one thing, little sad there, but Mercy and Hosanna really got some cute skirts and I even found me three skirts. Its easier now to find things since the Lord has allowed me to change sizes since exercising!!! Its going well on that but somedays I really have to "make" myself get on that treadmill!! Consistency is the key.
I have big Creative memory plans today, I have 248 pictures to put in Josiah's book! Friday evening we are having the Gellenbeck family coming over so Anna needs to get a dessert going for that today as well.
Its going to be warm today.......I hope I can keep inside and scrapbook :) Look forward to announcing a winner Friday. Bring the captions on!!!!!!
