For about the last month or so, I have been going to Ashland Christian Fellowship for worship on Wednesday nights. On a side note, there are some people who prepare dinner for anyone who wants to eat before the Wednesday night 6:30 service. I gotta say thanks to them, because they are blessing us with the ease of getting to church earlier, and getting dinner in our bellies! And I don't know about you, but I love it when food is prepared for me and my fam! :)
While the boys and I were looking for Grandma, a gal that knows me from growing up in church said, "you look so happy! And you are doing such a great job. And in about 20 years, there will be two gals that are very thankful for what you are doing." (Meaning, getting my family and I out the door will not only benefit us now, but benefit two gals that Carson and Gabe will meet one day). That really blessed me. Things like that aren't often voiced, or spoken about.
I know we (or maybe I should just speak for myself) can get really carried away with things in our daily lives. Laundry, dishes, projects, work, exercise, the list can go on and on. Some days just trying to get through the day seems like a miracle in and of it's self. To think about what I am teaching my boys now, and how it will affect their whole life and the gal's that they end up marrying is a bit on the huge side! But, it is something that I rarely think about. So, thank you for the reminder (*gal that I saw while I was growing up at ACF, whose name I should know*) that all this hard work, of getting the boys to church on Sundays, and to AWANA and to Wed. night worship, is going to pay off and be meaningful, not only now, but a ways down the road as well.
I pray you and your family are healthy, well and happy! Enjoy your autumn, Christmas will be here in less than 2 months!

We went to one of the local pumpkin patches today! We had a "hay" of a good time!
We went on a tractor hay ride and wheelbarrow ride, the boys rode ponies, sat on pumpkins, ate lunch, and climbed, rolled, jumped and threw hay at the hill of hay! We had a blast of a good time.
Hope you are enjoying your season of harvest

On 10.2.11 we headed to AWANA for the first evening celebration. Gabe is now a Puggle and Carson is in his last year of being a Cubbie! We had a great BBQ, and lots of jump time on the big dragon jump house! The boys had an absolute blast!!!
I love this AWANA program and all of the staff. I know they are so busy with their own families, kids, school, work and yet they still take time out of their week to work with my kids. It is greatly appreciated!
On Wednesday, Debbie and my sister, Zapata, came up from Yreka to
celebrate my moms birthday.
We headed to a play ground, had a picnic lunch of Big Town Hero and Bento. We thought it was going to be a lot sunnier than it was, but we had a great time! After we got the boys down for their naps, we chatted and just relaxed with each other which we haven't done for a long time!
It was great to see them! I am a very proud big sis! I love my little Z.Z! Carson kept saying "Auntie Zapata and Deborah are coming!" I think he was a little confused with Debbie being called "Auntie" along with Z. He loves his Aunties and Uncle Guy too (even though he didn't make it up with them).
Thanks for coming up ladies! Love ya bunches!
