My kids newest favorite song!

Edited to add! You will have to pause my music on my sidebar to hear this video. I have moved my music up to just below my About Me spot just for this purpose...so you dont have to scroll all the way down... Thank You!

This is currently my kids favorite song! I happen to love it also. It is so upbeat and cheerful. My husband actually likes it too. I really love this groups music. Its kind of funny to drive down the road with our windows down and playing this song. And when it is over and another starts to come on, what do I hear but "We want By and By momma....by and by....no..by and by. Thank You Momma..." Followed by their best version of this song.

Bluberry Bread

I finally got around to making this bread. It is delicious! Wonderful! The girls suggested that I not put so many blueberries in it next time. I had to agree, although it was delicious and I will make it again, I wont put so many blueberries in it. But it is a hit.

I am getting stuff ready for Church tommorow. We are going to mow after Church and we usually have lunch. I like to get stuff ready on Saturday night so I dont have to rush around on Sunday morning to get it done. I just wanted to share this recipe while I was thinking about it.

Husband Praise!

I know I havent been doing my daily Husband Encouragement on here...but I have been doing it.

But for now, lets just say that he is so good. He went out early this morning to do an extra job for bill money and when he came home, he decided that he was going to take Jack to get a new phone...(his broke last week...plus other issues with it...) So instead of just him and Jack going, he took all the little ones too. We were doing chores and fixing to do school but hey, they get to go with Daddy, we can always do school this evening. When He gets back, he is going to do another side job and maybe this evening we will watch a movie if he is not too tired.

And I get an hour of quiet rest. I am off to get a much awaited long shower and to read some of a new book.

I love my darling wonderful husband. He takes great care of us and knows just when I need a break. Love Ya Baby!

Fall Weather

Okay, 70 for a high today and 48 for a low tonight....Sound like FALL to anyone else? We are so excited around here. Even though I have pulled a muscle in my back, we have been doing really good with getting stuff done. I have my fall decorations out now and we have gone through the girls clothes and found out that Kylie needs some new clothes for fall/winter, she has grown so fast. (she also has a tooth that is lose....my baby is getting so big...I just wanted to cry when she told me...) I still need to go through Jasons clothes and mine but we are doing one thing at a time.
Browned Butter Bread Pudding Sounds delicious..I am going to have to try it.

Some websites that Have some great ideas for fall. I am anxious to try some of them.

and of course always visit Kelli over at There's No Place Like Home for lots of pretty and yummy fall treats. I just love visiting her site, she always has something creative and pretty or yummy to show.

Many Blessings

Baby Drew!

This is for everyone that reads Julies blog too. She called me this morning and her water is leaking so she is going to the hospital to see what is going on. We are heading there also so that we can be there if she has Baby Drew today. I will update as soon as I get home or to a computer that I can update on. I will also try to update on her blog so be sure to check both.

Keep her in your prayers..
