No blogging lately, all 4 of my littlest ones have been sick. I was so tired when I woke up this morning I probably could not of even told you my name lol. They are so whinny is the thing, but I am so blessed to be their mother. that takes alot of people by surprise, one minute me talking about how hard it has been and the next talking about how blessed I am . Well you read it right. I am blessed to have little noses to wipe, little heads to rub, little ones who need extra love when they have such a high temp they cannot even keep their eyes open. My poor two littlest one have bad double ear infections. But i am blessed that God gave them to ME. I am so inadequate but yet he gave them to me!!! And for that I am trully grateful. After have 8 kids I realize how fast time goes by and how fast they grow. And I know all too soon that I will not have any more little noses to wipe. HOw sad that will be. But we all go through seasons and this is my season right now. And I have been told it will go by all too quickly.

cannot be bought !!! For me the best gifts I have been given is my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am so thankful for His birth, I am celebrating not only his birth this Christmas but WHY He came!!! He came so that I may be redeemed. I am so thankful HE saved me. I am thankful he blessed me with Billy and 8 beautiful children. What more can I ask for this Christmas? God is soooooooooooooo very good! He is good ALL the time!

My family and I already had one get together yesterday. For that side of the family the past few years we have just gotten together, ate together and spent time together. No opening presents and it was wonderful! We had a great time together and just enjoyed each other. It is so relaxing and so much less stressful. I think that is alot of what christmas is suppose to be! We are pretty much done with Christmas shopping thank goodness ,just got to get my grandma a gift card. Hubby has almost finished the swing set for the young kids. i want to wish you all if I do not post again a Very Merry Christmas and please do not forget what this holiday is all about and what life would be if we did not have this holiday. Really think about how a baby was born so he could save us all!!! How glorious is that!

I have been super busy so therefore not posting much to my blog. We had thanksgiving and then of course getting started on the shopping for Christmas. I have started to try and be done before Christmas so I can actually enjoy Christmas. This year I am pretty near done already so that is nice. Dh is builing our younger kids this big swingset for their Christmas present and then we just got them like one or two things to open. I will have to post pics when it is done , it is looking so good. Then my sweet sister who is expecting had to go in for surgery to have her thyroid removed because a fairly large growth was found. Praise the Lord it was benign. We are so thankful for that and so many people were praying. Just goes to show the power in prayer. She is recovering and hopefully recovery will not be long. I am really just trying to focus on the Lord and all he trully does for us. We just overlook it so many times but when there is a need or worry where do we run. I really want the kids to learn to think of God always , not just in our times of need. Well guess this post is gonna be cut short, i hear a little one crying. more to come later- hopefully
