Awana Derby Night

Last night was the Awana Derby Night at our church. The boys took 4 weeks to create their cars. They cut them out and painted them. It was so much fun and the whole church was invited to attend and watch the race. I must say, the ones who ran it were uber organized and everything flowed great! I am looking forward to next year already!

This is #2's car. I love the smiley face!
This is #1's car. It's a corvette (I think).

Here is the track the church was able to borrow and the crowd was much larger than it shows. The kids got to sit on bleachers close to the track while the adults were seated in the back! Too much fun :)

He likes it, he really likes it!

I have had so much fun reading all the frugal blogs and learning how to make so many things we eat from scratch. However, getting my family on board has not been as fun! The kids are much easier to convert since they have to eat what I give them but DH is used to "store bought" items. Well, I think I've finally found something I can make from scratch that DH likes and I feel that it is cause for celebration!

So, I am celebrating "homemade bagel day". I made a batch yesterday and I only have this one lonely one left! Yay! I hope this encourages all the other Mom's who are trying to be frugal and making their everyday breads and snacks from scratch. I will continue to try and convert DH while I have fun and save money!!

God's Will is not our will

I know it's been a while since I've written and I am sorry! Life has gotten the better of me. Anyways, DH is back at work and God has really done a work in his life during the time he was off of work.

Now we are facing another crisis as DH's dad is in the hospital after having another stroke. He is still in a coma so we are heading down to see him. We decided to keep the kids at home with Nana and Papa so it's just us. We so appreciate all the prayers from our friends and I will try to keep everyone updated through here.

It's amazing to see God work through our trials. We have been so blessed financially and these times have brought me and DH closer together. We continue to lean on Him and look forward to see what good will come from this (Romans 8:28).

DH Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that my DH is home from the hospital but still out of work. His knee is still swollen but the rest of his leg is better. He is terribly bored but has been cleaning and cooking so that makes me happy :)

Please keep him in your prayers. Pray that he heals soon and gets to return to work. Pray that God will provide the finances for us to pay the bills.

Thanks to everyone who has kept us in your prayers. They mean more than you know! God is faithful and has and will continue to carry us through this trial. Like the Word says, trials make us stronger! We love all of you!!
