Today's entry may well be the last for a short while, folks... today is the move of the large pieces of furniture - and we will be spending time with our family for the holiday. I am praying you all have a safe and meaningful holiday - and I look forward to catching up with you all early next week.

There will be an exodus of vehicles heading from our place in the afternoon - we've got plenty of help from friends and (church) family. What a bittersweet, deligthtful time in our lives. I promise to take loads of pics as I try to stay from underfoot and to bite my tongue from trying to 'direct' the entire affair...

I spent a good part of yesterday sewing 'socks' by hand. We've been given an older table and chairs to use for our new kitchen... this will only be temporary as we want to get a cute little new set. In the meantime, these are nothing to look at but they will 'do'... Because we have newly laid linoleum in the kitchen I wanted to make sure the furniture does not scratch... so I sewed, by HAND, twelve little 'socks' for the legs of the table and two chairs. These are designer, baby, as I used an old Hudson Bay Blanket (wool) I'm so proud of myself?


sung by Kathy Troccoli

I died for you

I'd do it all again if I had to

To show you what you really mean to Me

I cried for you

I hung on the cross so you wouldn't have to

I made a way to set your spirit free


That's how much I love you

That's how much I want you

I gave up my own life that you might live

That's how much I love you

That's how much I want you to see

You are My child and you mean so much to Me

I gave you the stars

The sun, the moon, yes I went that far

So no matter where you go you think of Me

The mountains fair

The beautiful oceans are there

To remind you that I can satisfy your every need


Ok, I don't know if you've seen these before... they almost make me want to have small children all over again... someone was so clever to invent these... shoes that GROW with your child's feet?

Built right into INCHworm shoes is the iFit technology. The iFit technology allows you to GROW the size of the shoe with a simple push of the button. So eliminate unnecessary trips to the shoe store and provide your children with better fitting shoes that last up to three sizes longer. Inchworm shoes grow in half size increments. Just push the button on the side, and pull the toe of the shoe to adjust into the next size.
