Thank you for the prayers!

My little Peanut Pie is doing better........thank you for the prayers and her doctor.  She gave her some nice meds to help her horrible cough die out.  She is still coughing a little bit, but not anything like what she has been.  I am so very thankful for her wonderful PCP at our local office.........they are sooooo awesome!!!  She is playing tonight with her sister and they are yelling and fighting.......YUP, back to normal again!!  lol!

We do have our tree up also!  I just love Christmas!  Yes, I realize Thanksgiving hasn't happened just yet, but I love my Christmas!!!  I could have Christmas all year through!!  Well, short blog tonight.  God bless you all!!

Prayers for Peanut Pie

As I sit here at my computer tonight, I can hear the dryer going and I can hear my little Peanut Pie coughing at times.  I pray that the Lord will touch my little girl tonight, help her fever to break, and help her cough to go away.  I know that kids get sick at times when they are little, but boy oh boy, my heart just breaks and the worry sets in with this Momma when my girls are sick.  I wanna do anything and everything I can to make them better yesterday!  But, I know it doesn't really happen like that, although that would be wonderful if it did.  All I can do is give them the proper medicines, lots of water and fluids, lots of hugs, and lots of prayers!  My God loves me, loves my girls, and my family.  He will take care of my girls............I need to set my worries aside and know that He is in control.
Have a good night, sleep well, and if you are reading this tonight, please say extra prayers for my little girl.  Thank you and God bless!

Fall is almost over........

Yep, Fall is almost over and winter weather will be here shortly!!  That means, more craftiness and scrapping inside, and some holiday baking coming up!!  AND decorating for Christmas!!  Yay!!

Today was a very good day......my oldest finished her Science Fair Project.........a couple days ahead of schedule!  WoooooooHooooooo!!!  I told her, if you get it finished, you can have the rest of the weekend to do your Minecraft papercrafting!!  I am sooooooo sneaky!!  lol!!  Well, it worked though!  Go Mom!!!  Now we don't have to worry about that tomorrow.  BUT, I DO have to help my youngest decorate a paper turkey to bring back to school........oh well, good thing I have scrappy supplies to help with that!!  Yay for crafty time with my little one!

Now since I didn't post any Halloween or Fall type pictures, I figured I had better get some of those in! Here they are!!

For those of my friends and followers, just a reminder!!!!.................
There is a Pinspirational scrapbooking crop that My Scraps and More is having right now!!! It is happening until Nov. 16! So you don't have any excuse not to get in a little bit of scrappin' or craftin'!! You do NOT need to know how to do pinterest or even have an account to join in this scrappy crop, you just need to stop on over and check it out!! I have not yet had any time this weekend for scrapping, but I am indeed going to make some time this coming week to join in cuz I need some scrappy mojo again!! I just recently finished my december daily album, now I need to do some regular pages and also work on some Christmas crafty gifts!!

Hope ya'all had a Happy Fall and are ready for some much cooler weather that's a comin'!!!
Let me be the first to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and an early MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Wow, November is here already!

Where did October go?!! I can't believe that I skipped the entire month........ I was going to be so faithful.......ugh!! Well, if at first you don't succeed, try try again! So, here goes!

Well, it's the first part of November 2014. Thanksgiving is coming up at the end of the month and will be here before we know it! Then Christmas!!!! Then New Year's!!! Okay Lisa, you are getting way ahead of yourself, let's slow down a little bit. Okay................ now............

I have been back at My Scraps and More quite a bit lately too......feels good to be back with my scrappy friends and getting inspired!! I participated in the October Kit swap with a few other ladies. We each sent a "Kit" of our stash of scrappy supplies to someone else, for them to make a page with! Here is the page that I made and the goodies that I received!!

My Scraps and More is going to be holding a Pinspirational crop November 7 - 16.......I'd love for you to stop by and check it out!! It'll be "Pinspirational!"

I am still doing my monthly meal planning, so far it's been working out pretty well! I go grocery shopping tomorrow for this month. I can't wait to see how that goes!! I try to get as much as I can for as LITTLE as I can! hahaha! Using my coupons (what I have of them, lol!) and price matching other stores at Walmart! Last month I spent $270 for my total bill for the ONE trip, and that pretty much lasted us for the entire month. We have four people in our family, so I thought that was pretty good. We did have to get milk, bread, and cereal a few times throughout the month, oh, and coffee once for me, lol.............but other than that, I think we did pretty fabulously! A couple of the meals my girls didn't really care for, so we won't put those into the rotation again .............. we will try some new ones and stick to the meals that we know as well.

Other than that, I have been busy crafting my December Daily album!

Well, that's all for tonight. I hope to be back soon with more scrappy goodness, or meal planning tips/ideas, couponing, or just crafting or something!!! Take care and God bless!! Lisa
