This one is strapless right now.............can't decide if I want a strap, or if I want to just put a magnetic snap in it and call it a clutch.

My first purse is completed!
(trust me, it looks way better in the picture than it does in real life!) :) The material is actually green....and it is lined as well. I have about 23,489,237,528,347,523 changes I want to make on the next bag, and the next one, and the next one :) (Relatives-are you ready to receive my practice bags?) I actually purchased this pattern from a blogger :), and it came with a pattern for a much bigger bag too. With the purchase of the pattern I have permission to sell the purses, which is nice (if, in about 2 or 3 years I get good enough to do that)
:) Happy sewing.

A quote I read and like :)

Waking to the sunlight, and being cradled by the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissing Mama's face goodnight
Holding Daddy's hand
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more
Running barefoot through the grass
A little hide and go seek
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat
Dancing in the dark, when there's no one else around
Being bundled 'neath the covers,
watching snow Fall to the ground
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more
So many things I thought would bring me happiness
Some dreams that are realities today
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that I've made along the way
So if there's anything I've learned
From this journey I am on
Simple truths will keep you going
Simple love will keep you strong
Cause there are questions without answers
Flames that never die
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
So thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord
How could I ask for more

My dear husband styled his hair this way tonight and said it was called the "Trifecta".
Now if THAT doesn't make you laugh, I just don't know what would.
Have I mentioned how I love him, Trifecta and all? (Sounds like a disease name doesn't it) :)

Brett is such a dear husband. He stopped at the store on his way home to get something that sounded good to me.
Isn't it nice to be loved?

I usually include object lessons, games, activities, and scavenger hunts in the lessons to make it more interesting, real, and fun for the kids.
Tonight we're learning about obeying God. Here's a scavenger hunt I put together to help teach the kids about obedience. The clues will be taped up around the church.....and there will be a treat at the end! The kids loooove this by the way......we've done one other scavenger hunt this year and they requested we do another one so thats why we're doing one tonight! I'll have to let you know how it goes-Enjoy! :)
Obeying God scavenger hunt:
Clue #1-To obey or not to obey?
This man did and everything turned out okay
This was no ordinary boat ride
with plenty of baa’s, honks, and moo’s inside
Go to a very refreshing place for your next clue.
Clue #2-Noah was the man who obeyed
and in God was not afraid
But there was another who didn’t listen
and inside the belly of a whale went a fishin’
Go to a place where garbage lives.
Clue #3-Swimmin’ inside a great whale
Jonah started to look a little pale
God had instructed him for a reason
He needed him to preach for a season
Go to a device that makes voices boom.
Clue #4-If in obedience we stay
Our hearts will not stray
God will lift us up high
Our blessing and favor will reach to the sky
Go to a very high, green, leafy place
Clue #5-When our blessings seem far away
Remember your obedience will pay
God is with you in the dark
Hold tight to His hand on the path you embark
Go to a place with very little or no light
Clue #6-Remember God’s commands are here to guide and protect
The cause-His love,
and our obedience the effect
Go to a place inside that you climb on
Clue #7-Obey your mom and dad
Elders, teachers too
Run for dear life from bad
Let good be all you do
Go back to our weekly Breakout hangout spot!
The Final Clue: Hooray, you’ve finished!
If you keep on obeying
“That’s my treasure” God will be saying
Dig in for a treat
and give a rest to your weary feet
