Pictures of Our Thanksgiving

We hope all of you had a 
Blessed
Thanksgiving.
Where we live....
there was 
snow, snow and more snow.
Mommy 2's husband and crew (the kids)
went out to remove (shovel and plow) twice on Thanksgiving Day.

Time   for    a   little before dinner snack.
Time   for   dessert
Time   to   look at the newspaper...
which was mainly after Thanksgiving sale ads.
Time    to     go.

My 8 Blessings

Here  are  my  children.
I  have told  them  that 
when  they  are  all   together  in  one  place,
that  I  WILL  be  taking their   picture... together.
They  were  all  at  my  house on  Sunday...
this  is  the  picture of  my  Crew.
My oldest is almost 29...
My  youngest  is  9.
Children...they grow  up  too fast.
I  can  remember   each one
as  if  they  were  my  baby  yesterday.
Of  my children  I have 3 married,
one to be married in the spring,
6 grandchildren.
My family is shrinking,
yet growing...
And  life  goes  on.

This is my Bible verse for them:
3 John 4
I  have  no  greater  joy 
than  to  hear  that  my  children  walk  in  truth.

Love  you  all,
Mommy 2

I Have New Neighbors

I have the sweetest young couple living near me. Lost in Space and Lost in a Dream are now married and living about 1/2 mile from me. I think I will give them a couple name too. Let's call them the Soul Mates. Anyway, they are now my neighbors. It is a blessing to have them here. I see my daughter in law a little more than I see my son because he is working away from the home and she is a homemaker. I have been able to entice her up to my house a few times, but she has been pretty well occupied with her new role of wife and homemaker. Lost in a Dream is diligent and creative. We are thrilled to see her spoiling our son and also thrilled to see how proud he is of his wife's accomplishments.

The Soul Mates' home is sweet and wholesome. They have already opened their home for ministry, entertainment and fellowship. It is such a pleasure to see them enjoying each other and maturing in their relationship. I am amazed at the things they are accomplishing so early in their marriage. They are good examples to all of us.

Thanks for being our neighbors, Soul Mates!

News Flash...

Hey...
Sorry there hasn't been new posts lately...
I think Mommy1 and I have recovered
 and
are adjusting
 to our children being married.
We love it that they are married...
no more chaperoning for us.
(though I do miss the dinner & movies they took me too)
But ...
I miss my daughter...
my husband even said as much the other day.
We don't get to see her everyday...we can still text or call
(she lives an hour away now)
there is a room at my house being filled with other things...
things that no longer belong to my daughter
We are Happy for her,
But sad for us.
Take care.
Much love,
Mommy 2
P.S.
 I will post pictures soon of my daughter and new son in laws home.
It is called the cabin.

The Mother's Dresses

Hey all! This is Shineylocks reporting for Mommy1. As you all know, Lost in Space and Lost in a Dream will soon be wed. (Only eleven more days, wow!) Mommy 1, being the mother of the groom, was faced with the difficult task of finding something to wear to the wedding. This may sound easy, but believe me - it's not! She searched high and low for a suitable dress, but there seemed no hope for this poor M.O.G. Finally, when all hope seemed lost, and she was contemplating wearing Carhartts, she found the dress. This dress seemed a Godsend, not being electric green or made of tin foil. Needless to say she ordered the dress, and I am proud to announce that our dear Mommy 1 will not have to attend her first born son's big day clad in a beach towel. Here is the dress. 
~Shineylocks

Thank You...Shineylocks

So...
I already posted about my Dress...
Now that I have a new camera...
here are some pictures:

Three Little Baskets.....

What  do   you do with  Three Baskets?
You have Three Little Flower Girls at your Wedding.
Let me tell you the story of the Three Little Baskets...
Well...
Once Upon a time
there was Three Little Baskets...
Somewhere...
So the Mother of the Bride
(having nothing else to do with her time)
Set out to find those Three Little Baskets.
She looked high and low...
at Thrift Stores and New Stores.
Gathering the Baskets did she...
Good thing that she actually likes Baskets...
cause now she has a plenty...liking everyone she bought.
But none were matching...
so still looking for the perfect basket...
she came upon Three Little White Baskets.
They were brand new...
but still needed some "love".
So...she took those little baskets and painted them 
and gave them a nice shine.
Now they are happy little baskets,
waiting to walk down the aisle
with those Three Little Girls
on September 4.

Much Love to All,
Mommy 2

from our trip.
Tired and Glad to be home for while.

That way you can see the countdown to the Wedding there.
Though I will probably... give the countdown...
everytime that I write.

Anyway....
Love to travel 
(especially on a plane...cause it usually quicker)
But...
I LOVE to be home...
and sleep in my own bed.
Take care.

siblings bickering in the back seat of the van.
Yes...it was quite the ride here...
up a mountain or 2...

Running over a rock with my van on a mountain road.
Making it to my daughters house...fretting about the van.
Got the van "looked at"...

It was a BIG Praise God that that was all that was wrong with it!
I am enjoying my "vacation".

Where We Have Been....

Its   Now  Summer   Here...
Meaning...
  that  now the weather is warm and getting warmer,
We that live in the Rocky Mountains,
think its vacation time...
So I guess we have had a "vacation from the blog" too.
Actually...
there just hasn't been the time.
My family rarely takes time away from home.
Though my husband decided  on Sunday July 18
that we were going to travel (meaning in the car)
2 states away to see ill and aging parents.
So our trip began on Friday evening from our home,
we traveled about 6 hours away, then slept for the night.
Started the next morning and reached our parents city at 11:30pm.
We stayed 2 days , travel back, 2 days...
getting in at 1am this morning.
So I am tired.
I will be headed(in another direction) to visit my oldest daughter on Saturday,
I am taking my 4 youngest children.
We will stay one week at her house then return home.
In the meantime...
the count down for the wedding is 36 days...
So all the last minute things to be done.
Family and friends that will be here for the wedding.
So thats where I have been.
Take care,
Mommy 2
P.S. While on "my vacation",
I dropped my digital camera... it is no longer working.
So...I guess I will  be writing more on the blog.

THOUGHTFUL Thursday

As you already know by now, I am getting old. Youth seems SO young to me now and my elders so much less elderly these days. I have recently had the privilege of attending two bridal showers for my soon to be daughter in law. At these showers I have been surrounded by young Christian women that have been a total inspiration. I was humbled and delighted by the interaction of these young women.

I tried to remember who I was at their various ages and I didn't compare favorably with any of them. There is so much talk about how our society and young people are deteriorating and I know it is true in many circles. I feel for directionless unmotivated youth. I am astonished sometimes at what depths young people will stoop to today. But this week, I was thrilled to watch and listen to young women who have inner strength, direction, sincerity and self control. I am pleased to be accepted into their circle and thankful to be able to see the direction that their lives are headed.

You girls know who you are. Thank you for being such good examples for all of us. Thanks for being good friends, sisters, mothers and daughters. I am very thankful for you.
