With all that Lizzie has been through losing her hair and all her treatments and pain, I wanted to do something for her and other children that are in the same boat as her. I was also inspired by a friend of mine who did this as well. I'm donating my hair to Locks of Love.
Thus the journey has begun...

the finish line!
I'm so happy with how it turned out and I love the fact that I'm able to fix my hair from start to finish in 10 minutes!! Yeah!!

I wanted everyone to know that today is Lizzie's last treatment for leukemia! We are so thankful to God that He has brought her through this and we continue to pray that God will keep her strong and healthy.

Praise God with us!!

The Beauty of Powell

Yesterday we had a lot of snow that fell and I wanted to share the beauty of it all. The girls and I went outside and played in the snow before naps and the girls had so much fun. Cora loved being pulled around in the sled. She also would fall on her back and just lay in the snow with the snow flakes falling on her face and she would try to catch them with her tongue. It was so cute. I'm sorry, I don't have any picture to post. All I had was our 35 mm. camera. Audrey loves the snow this year. She's discovered how much fun it is to throw snow at Bandit and sissy and me. When she would throw it at sissy's face she would be giggling and sissy would laugh right along with her. What a spot Cora is! It was so adorable. I'm just so thankful to be living here.

Fun Pictures of the Girls

Need to explain?

Helping daddy duck hunt. Audrey enjoyed carrying the ducks up to the truck after Lucas shot them. You should have seen her trying to carry the goose. I think it weighed more then her. But she gave it her best. Sorry I didn't get a picture of it.

I just love these overall on Cora. They just fit her personality.

Fresh Snow and What I did today!

Today Lucas had the day off so he watched the girls and dropped me off about a half a mile from our house and I went trekking though the snow and found this doe. We played cat and mouse for about 10 minutes, just watching each other. Then when she thought it was safe she turned to her side and I put one shot through her and dropped her. I then carried her on my shoulders for a mile and a half to our house (well, I did drag her for a quarter of the way and then carried her the rest).

I just love this picture of Audrey holding the tail.

What a great day. We drove all but half a mile from the house. What a blessing from God! She'll make great breakfast sausage.
