Pics of house

Here are a couple of more pictures of our new home. The second one as you see is of the back yard. I am standing in the location the swing set will go. You may notice the BIG deck on the back. We are fortunate to be one of the few houses that have a bigger deck on the back. As our friends in AL know how much we love our deck. If you need us this summer - that is where we will be be. Can't you see my dear hubby grilling and all the people waiting to see what he is cooking up? We are looking forward to having friends and family over. We are just so thankful to God that He has allowed us to find this house. This is house is a gift from God.

So, who is ready to paint?

Random Things

We are sitting here watching our weekly installment of American Idol. I always look forward to hearing Melinda Doolittle. She is my favorite. If you didn't see it tonight please watch the recap tomorrow night you must see Sanjaya's hair. Every week it is something different. Tonight was bad. We were all laughing out loud at the hair. Please America do not vote for him, we are tired of hearing the bad singer. I ran across an article about some of the contestants that is worth the read - I like know that people I am pulling for are Christians. This year to me has not been as good as last year. I think the top ones are Melinda, Lakisha and Jordin. I like Chris and Phil but they are just not in the same league as the girls.

This past Friday my dear hubby and I were able to go out on a date. Hannah asked me why we are still dating when we are married. I told her we enjoy being together. We went to see the Amazing Grace movie. It is VERY good. You get to the back story behind what had inspired the words the hymn. But the movie is about William Wilberforce and what passion he had to see the slave trade abolished. It is about someone willing to take a stand for what he believed and never wavering. He gave his life for this cause. The only thing I didn't like was that at the end they did not play the new Chris Tomlin version which he wrote for the movie. You can see it I believe on the movies website at You can see the video here -

I am sure most of you reading are wondering about the house. Our offer was finally accepted!! Yea. Praise the Lord!!!Once all the stuff was done we will hopefully have a closing date. We just pray everything else will go smoothly. Anyone in the mood to pack?

Here is it- Our future home

Prayer Request

We received news today about Noel's Grandmother having lymphoma and lung cancer. This is his mom's mom. They have given her a year. Also, his Uncle Tommy (his mom's brother) is close to the end and hopice has been called in. All of this has been tough on Noel's mom, with potentially losing her only brother and mom in the same year. She and Jim are traveling to TX to be with Tommy this weekend.

Please just keep the family in your prayers.
Mildred Ferguson - Noel's Grandmother
Tommy Nall - uncle
Rita Dunaway - Noel's mom

my how time flies

December 2001

My dear hubby finally found some pictures I have been missing. They have been on a hard drive that has been on his computer at work, but he has not been able to transfer them to the home computer. Now that he has his new laptop the pictures have returned home. I have enjoyed looking at them and remembering all the fun we have had. Most of the pictures were around Emily's first year of life, and various other events. The girls have enjoyed looking at themselves. I thought our friends in Ohio would enjoy seeing a picture of the girls when they were younger. It has also been fun to see pics of my dear hubby and I younger as well. So, enjoy. They also still enjoy dressing up.

Question: I have a picture of my dear hubby and his friends at a wedding from about 6 yrs ago, should I post it?

My dear hubby stole my thunder

If you don't know by now, we are looking for a new home. We have our financing and have made an offer on a house. We are praying that it is God's will for us to have this home. We call it a mansion compared to where we currently live. The toughest part is waiting on the bank, because this is a forclosure. If we are able to get it - we will let you know. More later....

I thought I would give you a little update. This is all for now 24 is on. We are hoping Jack will be able to stop the nuclear weapon and find out why Audrey died. He is not happy why no one told him about it. We may be in a nuclear war soon. GO JACK!!

Also - I AM TIRED OF BEING SICK!!! Does anyone have any antibiotics?

Not too much going on, yet.

I don't have any new info as of yet, but may have some soon. My mom and brother came into town yesterday. The girls are very excited to have grammy here. I like when she comes because Noel and I get to go out on a date.

We have a busy couple of months coming up, so I am not sure how often I will get to update. Maybe more than my dear hubby does?

Spring is in the Air?

How happy was I to see these in the store. They only come around one time a year, but when they do - IT'S ALMOST SPRING!! Everyone knows I LOVE chocolate, and I do prefer mine dark, but I cannot resist these. They are like M&M's on sterriods. If you have never tried them - DO. But I will warn you, you can't eat just one.
