This what I think of pumpkins

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch and washes all the dirt off of you. He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seedsof doubt, hate, and greed. He carves you a new smiling face and puts
His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.

Second Annual Preemee Birthday Party

video video
Yesterday the boys had their #2 year Preemee Birthday Party at the hospital they were born. The nurses and doctors got to see what little cuties they have become. One older nurse that seemed to always be assigned to them when she was on shift almost cried to see them. Yes, can you tell we are a little proud.

I am still trying to figure out how this blog works with all the changes. I have tried to change up the design and have lost some things. I hope I can get it the way I want it eventually.
Any suggestions??

Law of the Garbage truck



One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport
We were driving in the right
lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in
front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other
car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head
around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was
really friendly.
So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car
and sent us to the hospital!'
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the
Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around
full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of
disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes
they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their
garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the
streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks
take over their day.
Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
so ... Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don't.

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a garbage-free day!

I Love Lucy "Pioneer Women"

Some of you may wonder why is this posted, but if you have know me very long you will know I am forever falling into simular situations as our friends, Lucy and Ethel. I like to refer to them as ...oh no, another Lucy and Ethel drama. I tease my sister in law and call her "Ethel"......

well, here goes the story.....I have made homemade cinnamon rolls for my family for years....I decided last weekend to try a new recipe... what a disaster! The directions called for one quart of whole milk, one cup of veg oil, and one cup of sugar in a medium size sauce pan...heat and open 2 packets of yeast to pour into milk....then add 8 cups flour.....Well, not knowing...I added TWICE the amt of milk I should have....what a mess. I kept thinking as I added the flour....gosh, this is like soup this can't be right......yes, check, medium size pan....thats not the problem......thinking what could it be?? I had to pour into a large mixing bowl as it was coming over the top....I doubled checked yes, it did say medium size pan...but this could not be right....oh no....double the milk.....so to correct..I added more flour....I covered the bowl with kitchen towel to allow it to rise and boy..did it.....OUT of the bowl it came....like a creeping monster....it crawled out of the bowl....over the edge onto the rack, out of the bowl onto the oven floor....oozing along the way....what a mess.....in the middle of all this mess my older son and his wife came to visit....They were quite amused...actually they were rolling on the floor at what I had created....Lovingly my son said, Mom, don't try to fix what is not broken.....Lesson well learned today! So until next time.
