Well, I was tagged forever and a day ago by Amy.

So I am supposed to list 7 random things about myself.

Here we go!

1. I LOVE ears. I play with my husbands ears all the time. When we got married my husband's cousins got him a wrestling helmet to protect his ears. I also play with my children's ears.

2. I love to smell my kids........AND because I love ears, I usually end up smelling my kid's ears.

3. I have to wear socks all the time. They are the first thing on my body after I shower.

4. I get some kind of high off of a really good deal. Sometimes I can't stop. If I find a pair of pants I like and they are really cheap, I'll buy like 3-5 pair of them.

5. I looked like Shrek's wife during my last pregnancy.......I put on 60 lbs. and no I haven't lost all of it.

6. I love soda/pop. My favorites are Coke, Cherry Coke and Mellow Yellow.

7. Walmart is my second home. I go to Walmart at least 3 times a week. Lately I have been cheating on Walmart with Target.......... I am beginning to fall in love with Target too.
Now I am suppost to "TAG" 7 other people. Here is the problem. I don't know 7 other people who have not been tagged. So, I think I'm going to skip this part:)
Two More Week Until Our Next Court Date!!

Operation Princess Hair for Abby!

Most of us in the blog world have read about sweet Abby Riggs and the difficult time she is going through right now. Abby was diagnosed with Leukemia and has started Chemo, now she is losing her hair. This is hard for a 3 year old to understand and deal with. She has the most precious family. Look at their blog here.
Well, some sweet friends of the Rigg's family decided to bless the Riggs bunch by helping Abby get her "princess hair" back. You can look at their post here.
They have some great ideas on how to help Abby get her beautiful hair back!
Please take the time to read about this family and remember them in prayer.

We are very sad

We didn't make it through our first court date.
They did reschedule a court date for us, for sometime in Nov.
We are very much in love with our sweet daughter and just really want to bring her home.
Please pray for us and for our next court date.
I am still choosing to Praise Him during this wait!!!

We went to the movie Fireproof tonight. There was a great song in the movie.
Read through these lyrics....they are so good....especially for us "waiting families"!

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait
I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience
While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait
I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You, Lord
(Song by John waller)
WOW! How Great is that song!
Lord, I will serve you and worship you while I wait!
By the way, the movie was really good!!!!
