I finished Cailey's costume yesterday! YAY!!!!! She LOVES it!!!!! BUT because of the Frankenstorm the Halloween party was rescheduled. Now, ordinarily that would not be such a big deal BUT since we are moving at the end of the week, we won't be able to go. Cailey was SO upset. SO, Momma Hope (she sort of adopted our family and I LOVE HER SOOOOO MUCH!!!!) is going to take Cailey and Colin trick or treating to all the church members' houses so she can show off her costume. LOL That made it better. ;)
I was lucky enough to be invited to lunch Friday with Momma Hope, Grandmomma Verna and Marie. These are 3 very special ladies. I already mentioned that Momma Hope sort of adopted my family into her heart and Grandmomma Verna is her mother. You will never meet anyone as kind and generous and loving as those 2 special ladies. Marie is taking over Bags of Hope and Love for me here. She is SUCH a blessing!! I am so thankful for her!! We had a very nice lunch with lots of chatting. LOL I am so thankful that I got to go before we moved.
Today at church I said my final farewells to a very special group of people. God blessed me so much when He had Momma Hope stop at my door and invite me to her church. My life will be forever changed just from knowing those special people.
Pastor David passed around a church directory and had everyone sign it. SUCH a special going away gift. I will always be able to look at it and remember each and every one of them.
I cried and cried and cried. I know God has a purpose for us. I know that we are moving to Georgia for a reason. I may not know that reason for a while but I know there is one. Like a friend said today, it may only be to support our family better but that is a reason!
I have pictures of Cailey's fairy princess costume!!!! I am sooooo very very sorry that I forgot to take the pictures for a tutorial. I'm not sure that I would have done a very good job with the tutorial anyway..... I was flying by the seat of my pants on that costume!!! LOL
She LOVES her costume!!! YAY!!!!! :)
Deanna was disappointed about the Halloween party, too. I was going to make her a long black skirt today. Last night was did a trial run with the Dios de los Muertos make up. It looked REALLLY good. She wouldn't let me take any pictures, though. :/ I'm thinking she might want to dress up on Halloween. She will be helping Grandmomma Verna hand out candy while Momma Hope and I take the little ones trick or treating. :)
I was going to finish Colin's dino costume today. All it needs are eyes, teeth and nostrils... But since the party was cancelled, we spent the day flood proofing the sunroom. Well, not really flood proofing.... more like cleaning and making sure all the books were above the flood level. SIGH... PLEASE PRAY that our bottom floor doesn't flood again!!!!!
We had a little silliness going on last night. Check out these pics!!!
Hubby the Clown!!! I still can't believe Colin talked him into this!!! Sorry the pic is blurry but I only got one shot..... LOL
Joshua the Clown!!!
Deanna put the wig on for a split second but wouldn't let me take a picture... LOL I was hoping Jacob would show up today so we could get one of him. Where is that boy???? He TOLD me he was coming today!!!! He better not make me call all his friends... ;)
They are saying that the worst of the Frankenstorm will be tomorrow night into Tuesday. Pray for us!!! The Hubby is still planning on going into work and that means I will be getting up at stupid:30 in the morning to drive him through the Frankenstorm. Yay..... :/
I will start going through closets tomorrow in preparation for the move. Fun.... LOL And toys boxes will need to be thinned out... Pray for me on that one. Colin will NOT be happy!!!!
HUGS and PRAYERS for all of those in the path of the freaky storm!!! Just remember that God is in control. We can depend upon HIS strength!!! He will take care of you!
