Josiah's New Do

I took the boys to get their hair cut last week and Josiah decided to get a new style. So what do you all think? I really like it! I just hope he will keep up styling it.

Sorry I have not given an update on our family in a while. I didn't know if people even still read my blog anymore. I have been pretty busy with kids and basketball. We have several games a week. I have been making tutu's and hat sets, painting my upper kitchen cabinets to match the lower ones. I painted the lower ones back in Sept. and had been waiting on Karlton to build a shelf for me over my sink to paint the upper cabinets. He finally did and then it was my turn to paint and caulk everything. Now we are putting in a bead board back splash to match the bead board we put in behind the shelf! I am really liking it so far!! It has hardly cost us anything to do this little remodel, but it sure has made a huge difference. I will share before and after pictures once I get everything all painted! I am running 15.6 miles a week now. I love running.... well most days anyway! But I am sure by now you all knew that! ;0) It keeps me going!!!

The kids got me up this morning at 6:45 to tell me it had snowed. This is our first snow this year. We only had about an inch, but it is still pretty to look at. We had a lot of freezing rain so everything is frozen over with about a 1/2 in. of ice on everything. At 2:53 pm today it was 24 degrees, that is pretty cold for us here in SC. Tonight is suppose to be 11 degrees. It was kind of nice to have been snow-iced in. I stayed in my warm flannel PJ's all day.... but I actually got a lot accomplished! Mainly stripping beds and doing 100 loads of laundry that I am not finished with (since the boys went out to play in the snow this morning). I have had sick kids all this week ..... all of them. Jordan is the only one who is better..... 1 down 4 to get better!

Please pray the Lord will keep sending Karlton work for his company. He has actually been pretty busy the last 2 weeks PRAISE GOD!!! He has been putting in applications in with a lot of places because he thought he was going to have to shut the doors to his business.

I promise I will post some more pictures soon! I am sending out a big THANK YOU to those of you who read my blog!

Hey Siah, That is a great do for you! You look very handsome.
Mary Ann, of coarse I read your blog and look for new and exciting news everyday. Although I talk to you, too.
I hope all of the kids get better and are ready for a new week.
Karlton, we are always praying that you get work and lots of money to keep the bills paid, food on the table and all of your needs supplied.

Love, hugs and kisses,
Mom (Nana)

I don't read as often as I used to...just busy with the kids (and b/c of facebook); however, I do read it. :)

I would love to see pics of your kitchen. I am wanting a new back splash in our kitchen and am looking for ideas! :)

Hope all is well!
