A Little Hairdresser

Published by under Uncategorized

I was on such a good run this morning, the kiddies had started school and were going well. I went up stairs to change the bed sheets, Cassandra followed me. I let her cut some paper with the children’s craft scissors (you know the ones that don’t really work?). Well, guess what, they do! Cassandra transformed into Edward Scissor hands, and cut off all her hair!!!!! Oh man, the floor looked like a skinned rabbit! IMG_2279Cassandra looked like a bogan (she couldn’t cut off the back).IMG_2281

The irony in this, is that I had just prayed for patience, to have the law of kindness on my tongue. Then I saw….God has a sense of humour. It is only hair hey? I gringe every time I see the abscense of shiny long blonde hair.  After a little wash, and brush, and the removal of the bogan tail….IMG_2288Don’t mind the fake smile. She has been a little upset, especially when I had to cut off her tail.

Now It Looks Real.

Published by under Uncategorized

Wow, now it looks like we are going some place. Look what we picked up  on Sat.IMG_2251It’s cool to see the different types of money. It is the first time I have actually felt excited, is that weird? I still feel very torn about leaving the children. I know that they will be in good hands, I just know that they are our responsibility, and I’ll miss them. I have just been reading 1 Samuel, and it has been very comforting. The Lord has everything in control, He can do anything, He will watch over all of us. How great is that? We will be miles apart, but God sees us all at the same time.

Sunday we went to Morwell, Jared took the service and chaired a few meetings afterward. We drove to Buln Buln to have lunch with G’ma and pa afterwards.

Today we celebrated??? the Queens birthday (translation, we had the day off). Jared got stuck into the garden. Take a look at this picture of our glorious back yard. How many Kookaburras can you count? I think that there 5 in the picture.IMG_2260My little Cassie has been up to her usual curious endeavours. She stuck up a bead up her nose, she took a bit of coaching, but she finally snuffed it out. She also stuck a paddle pop stick into the fan heater! Oh man, she is going to kill herself. What’s woarse is that she was right in front of me. Later on in the day, she had a little bubble bath.IMG_2263

I put some foundation on Steph today, just to see what it looked like. She has such dark circles under her eyes, I have even taken her to the Dr’s in the past to get her iron checked. I thought that it made her look a little brighter.IMG_2276

Did I Say Freebie?

Check out this great site for a free download of the whole Bible to listen to on MP3. You can also copy onto Cds, now there is no excuse not to read/hear God’s word.  Mums with little children, imagine how well your children would know God’s word if you let them listen to it a couple of times through in one year, for 5 years or more! Wow! Even for those elderly, or just busy bees driving in the car.  Wow, try typing that address out quickly!sticker 09 read g wI made a couple of little bags today. I found the tutorial on this web site. What a great idea, to use little girl braclets for handles! Cassandra choose her fabric, and is now as proud as punch carrying it around. claimed the little bag for her own.IMG_2245Stephanie earned her material this week (her goal for a certain amount of Paces done). She has started work on her first quilt.IMG_2246The material is flannel, mmm, cosy!

Oh, happy wedding day to Kara and John.john and kara

Party Time!

Published by under Uncategorized

If you like parties, and freebies, check out Tip Junkie. I love this site, I think it is totally inspiring.
Today I worked on a little project, I am thinking that I might make up some “personal items” for some young ladies in Africa. I think that my first one turned out quiet well, although the horrible snaps proved a challenge. Here is one folded (I’m not bold enough to do a full reveal!).IMG_2228
This week I recieved some info. from Centre Link, I took a little photo of their news. I think that it is sad. Saying that, I don’t hate gay people, they are sinners just like me. How confused are our little children going to be, what about the santity of marriage?IMG_2225 People can get very angry discussing such issues, but I know that it is God who ordains the laws of this life, not me.
