Chloe has 2nd degree burns...

on her right hand and arm....all the way to her little elbow. I feel just horrible. I asked my DD, Christine if she wanted to cook supper or fold laundry. She chose to cook supper. Everything was done...corn muffins were sitting on the back burner cooling. the front burner was hot from mashed potatoes...Christine went to the laundry room, Chloe came in the kitchen and pulled her a chair up to the stove and decided she wanted a muffin. She burnt her arm on the hot eye.

I know I can't go back and fix it, but I just wish I had been in the kitchen. Her cry was tragic, she hurt so bad...all the way to the emergency room she was just shaking. She cried "it's just not fair" over and over.

Tylenol with Codeine must be really good pain medicine, her voice is almost gone from talking SO much. She is high as a kite now. We have to keep her bandaged for 5 days. She has little blisters on her finger tips two places on her palm and all along the underside of her arm.

Pray for my little baby. I hope she isn't going to be hurting to bad tomorrow.

Kreativ Blogger Award

Hey! How fun is this?! I just found out this morning that Chelsey has passed me a Kreativ Blogger Award! Whoo Hoo…whodathunk? So…as it goes I have to exclaim 6 positive things, and pass this on to 6 fabulous blogs. Easy enough!

1) The Lord is my Blessed Savior and I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that faith and perseverance will pull our country through these hard times.
2) My family is truly amazing. How I have ever been found deserving of such blessings is beyond me. Each and every member of my family is truly special and I love each one SO much. They bring joy to my life and make my life worth living.
3) I am proud of our happy church home. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful group of people to worship with. I am so happy that Michael and I have the opportunity to teach AWANA. I know we have both grown and learned as much from them in the past year as we have been able to teach them.
4) I am happy I scrap! I love scrapping. What did I ever do before I scrapped? LoL It is so much fun to make beautiful (I think so anyhow!) treasures for my kids and their kids! I love it!
5) I am grateful for my fabulous job. I work with a bunch of wonderful people. I’m especially grateful in this icky economy to have a secure job, I know they are going to need me forever!
6) My family and I all have our health. That is fabulous! So grateful every morning to wake up safe and sound. I pray that will stay true a long long long time.

And now to chose 6 fabulous blogs! I have seen some really fabulous blogs here lately. I love all the creativity! It was hard...but I chose:

North Georgia Corn Maze...

...was so much fun!! We went yesterday with our youth! We had a blast! I think Jody and Michael and I had just as much fun as the kids! Haha...we finished that sucker in just 25 minutes! The funniest part, and most ironic part is that I led the way! How scary is that?? Apparently I can read a map pretty efficiently. I never did get us too lost at all!

In this picture, Christine was missing because her group took about an hour longer than we did to get their cards punched! Whoo Hoo! *LOL*

I am having so much fun doing the Scrap Whispers game this time. Georgina has let me lead a team. I feel so priveledged! We are on week two now. Our weekly challenge for this week is NO FACES! Wow! That was a challenge. I had fun coming up with an idea. I'm really pleased with how my page came out.
Come join us. sign ups for the game won't be open again until December, but anyone can join in on the fun weekly challenges. Your really going to love the fabulous inspiration!
Ugh! It's official! Fall is here. 8>( And I am so not happy about it. Last night we went to the park to a friends birthday party. Oh, I was just miserable. The wind was blowing like crazy, I was freezing. The smoke from the campfire (which I usually LOVE) was just killing my eyes and throat. :( The wind was so bad our power went out at about didn't come back on until after 3 this morning. I feel so miserable this morning. MY head and throat are just killing me. I just hope this is a super quick winter...maybe spring will be here before I know it. LOL

This week has been an absolute whirlwind! Taylor came home from school Monday with a swollen cheek. Took her to the dentist on Tuesday and found she had an abscess. The antibiotics didn't kick in like they wanted so they ended up doing surgery on my poor baby yesterday.

She is doing Better now...not quite so swollen, but still really bruised. Bless her heart. I hope she will be able to go back to school tomorrow.

I altered something!!

I am so proud! I had fun making this little album. It is the first time I have ever altered anything that I was going to keep for myself. I think I could get addicted to making these CB albums! I keep looking for something else to alter!

We finally went camping this weekend! Our first weekend in the new camper. It was fabulous! I'm not even going to mention to much how it broke and wouldn't crank up when we first went to open it Friday. Or how Michael had just paid a guy $100 that very morning to fix it. ARGH! Thank heaven Michael is so handy. We would have had to come back home. But instead we got to spend 4 fabulous days and three great nights camping with the Andrews and the Farleys. We took all the kids hiking up to see this gorgeous waterfall. I was so nervous climbing through the woods and in this creek with my new camera. It made it back wtihout a scratch!

I love this picture of Chloe playing frisbee with the big kids!! She thinks she's grown!

Taylor had fun finding bugs and critters. She kept a cup of beetles all weekend!

WooHoo! I got a new camera, I got a new Camera! *happy dance* My DH is so wonderful, actually just amazing. I have been dreaming and planning how I could save money for a Digital SLR. I did loads a research and diligently chose where I would get it and all that mess, all that was left was saving up a load of money. I'm sure you know, I am not any good at saving. Last Wednesday my wonderful Dear husband left me a note on a scratch peice of paper that I written down the info for my dream camera. The note he wrote said, "You can order your camera tomarrow night." I cried! Michael had gone and sold one of his prescious guns so that I could get my far too expensive wonderful new Camera! Mercy, I don't deserve such a wonderful husband! We went last Friday and got it. It is a Nikon D60. I'll load some of my first pictures soon! :D

I am a terrible Blogger!!

So it's only been 5 mos. since my last post. *gasp* We are too too busy! We have been really trying to clear our schedule some so that we aren't always so busy. It isn't easy though. When we do have a minute to just be at home, we are too exhausted to enjoy it! lol

Justin graduates, yes, I said graduates *Whahaa!* in 4 short weeks! I wish life had a pause button, this is all happening too stinkin' fast! I mean, just the other day he was chubby and still wearing diapers. Now he is all grown and
stuff. Now even my youngest baby isn't wearing a diaper, she has the nerve to grow up on me too. She is so funny. All of a sudden she doesn't want me taking her picture! Argh! I can't have that...I mean what will I scrap! I can only do one LO titled "I not be a picture!"

She is such a mess!
