Father's Day cookie!

My kids saw a table at the grocery store with one little girl sitting there decorating a cookie. My kids asked if they could do it too. This usually is a "free" table where the kids get faces painted or whatever during special occasions so I said OK. Then my son sat down and the lady whipped out a large cookie and gave him some blue frosting to start decorating. My son jumped right in without hesitation and started to decorate. It occurred to me that this was a Father's day thing and that there was no way they were going let us have the giant decorated cookie, free. The table never had a sign or anything telling you this, but, I just knew. My daughter wanted to decorate a cookie too since her big brother was doing it and I whispered to her that I did not know how much it would cost for one so they would have to decorate the same cookie. She was not thrilled but did it anyway. My son got up and my daughter sat down and started to sprinkle edible confetti onto the cookie. She then put a "Happy Father's Day" plastic thing-a-ma-gig onto the cookie and as soon as she did this the lady at the table whisked the cookie away and slapped a clear plastic lid onto it and then a price sticker. It was nearly eight dollars for this cookie. (It was not THAT giant!) I was a little surprised and I did not have the money for it so we discretely placed the cookie on a shelf in the store (Horrible, I know.) and bought a roll of cookie dough.

When we got home I knew that I had food coloring and I can make frosting. We made a giant cookie (Bigger than the one at the store.) and the kids decorated it nicely. It only cost me $2.50 plus tax. I am sure my husband will love it. :)

33 weeks!

I am now 33 weeks along in this pregnancy and I am so sorry for not keeping up with my blog lately. I am so bad! I can't sleep well because of the leg, hip and back pain and the baby is getting so big now that when he moves about it disrupts what sleep I might be getting sporadically. :D
Anyway, I went to the park today with my other 2 kids and I felt so hot and tired that I had to go back home to the air conditioning. I feel like passing out a lot these days.

I have been working at the church doing yard work and weeding gardens when I feel up to it Even when I don't feel up to it I try my best and my kids help me. I should take some pics and post them. I will be there tonight as we have youth group and we, of course, are there for that.

It is hot and feels like it is getting hotter everyday. 95 today and the humidity makes it feel like it is over 100 degrees. Of course, I am pregnant and so I may feel hotter than normal.

My kids and I found a way to the park without taking the major road. We have lived here 3 years and never even tried to ride our bikes to the park before. I never wanted them on the main road. It may take a little longer to get to the park but it is a nice ride and it is a few miles. When the baby is born I will see about getting a bike attachment for the baby and me and the kids can all ride there. Or, I can take the jogger stroller (got it at the baby shower!!!! I registered at for it and my hubbies aunt got it for us!!) and my kids can ride slowly in front of me on the sidewalks.

I am so excited for this baby to come. I am anxious about the whole delivery part but I know it will go fast and it will be over before I know it. God will be there protecting me and the baby like he did with my 1st and 2ND. I should have died from the first but God took care of me even when the docs messed up and did not.

OK, I gotta see if my kids will watch a movie and let me take a quick nap. I am so tired. :) Then I will make an egg salad for supper. Cold dinners are best these days. :D

too much faith?

No way! You can never have too much faith. It has been tough the past 3 months. I have no posted in a bit because I have been struggling with trying to pray without ceasing. My hubby had been out of any work for 3 months now. Recently he picked up a couple odd jobs but not enough to pay our bills. .We are behind in mortgage and medical bills. I am due to have the baby Aug 5 but the baby may come a little early so probably 6-7 weeks from now. It is been hard to pray thinking that I have been praying for 3 months now and no work has shown up. My husband is self employed so he does not qualify for unemployment and we used up our entire savings to pay our bills 2 months ago. We have been living on pure faith with some days being easier than others. today seems to be a good day but of course with the pregnancy I may start to cry in about an hour. :) *smile*

Husband has been trying to start up a new business of mowing lawns and that is big in FL. We will just add it on to his current business and that way we can use the Ins. and business name we already established.

God is so good and we know He will not leave us alone in all this. We have our human emotions and we feel alone and abandoned sometimes but that is not the case. It is our human side feeling this way but it is not reality.

We will continue to have faith and let God do His perfect work. I will keep everyone updated.
