I am just complaining....
sometimes life is hard....real hard, and I have had a tough night! Nothing big, just that my hubby is out of town and sometimes being a special needs mom is HARD!!! I try not to complain very much about this life that was handed to me by God, after all it is Logan that really lives in that life. But it affects us, her family, because we too live in this life.

There is so many things to do every single day that other families don't have to do and I won't lie, I wish we were like other families sometimes....But this life is a journey. And Logan will make a difference in this world, she is already doing it. I am so honored that God entrusted us with his special child. I love all 3 of my girls so much. I hope one day they know that I am doing the best that I can, the only way I know how. I hope they know just how much I love them....

Halloween Part 2!

So on Saturday we got invited to my hubby's boss' house to hang out. His boss is also his friend, so it was a no pressure type of situation. Just hanging out with him and his wife Monica who I just adore. They live about 45 minutes from us, and the girls were excited about helping pass out candy there. Earlier in the day the girls talked about switching costumes, which I thought was a fun idea, and glad they came up with it on their own! So Lo was Sleeping Beauty, and Bug wanted to use her Mulan dress up and go as that! They had fun switching!!

So we got there and decided to take the girls TorT down 1 street. They walked through a little blowup haunted house, and had a ball looking at all the costumes. The folks in this town really did it up! Each house in the subdivision had a fire pit and food. It is great to see neighbors being so neighborly!!

When we came back the girls helped pass out candy which was a good experience for them. It's nice to teach our children that while it's great fun to "get" candy, it's also great fun to "give" it as well!! They loved it!!! We hung out at the fire pit and talked til 2 of our girls were snoring! It was a really nice evening spent with friends!!

Halloween 2009 part 1...

This year Halloween was a bit different for us! We were in a town where the girls had never gone TorT*(trick or treating) before. My girls started talking about what they wanted to be a while ago. Bug wanted to be either Bat Girl or SuperGirl, and Lo followed suit and said she wanted to be SpiderGirl! I was excited cause my thinking was "hey, these might be easy to put together"! See I see all these blogs talking about money saving tips, and I have one to share....Don't spend money on Halloween costumes!!! It's 1 day, and we don't even "celebrate it"...it's just a fun night to dress up and get candy. We even have a little rule that the girls can't be anything "demonish" meaning, the devil, a witch, or something like that. Other than that I let them decide on what they want and I try and put it together. Last year was difficult for me being that Lo wanted to be toodee from Yo Gabba Gabba, but I think I did okay! Well the closer it came, the more their minds changed this year. Finally I said okay, that's it...decide NOW...and Lo said Cinderella, and so then Bug chose Sleeping Beauty. If you know my kids they love princess's. They play dress up all the time and are a little obsessed....So I didn't care, and was glad cause we already had the costumes!! (Um hello....FREE) Plus they are 4, if they want to be something that they play all the time, it doesn't bother me. So for their costume's I bought them some cheap wigs that were really cute!! I also found a 5.00 snow white costume for baby girl so that was AWESOME!! This is Lo doing her Cinderella smile! Bug LOVED her Wig!

We took a wagon cause we live in a small town and it was easier for Lo not to get too tired using her walker. Baby girl pretty much walked the whole hour and a half of TorT*!! She is a trooper! And she loved it! She wanted to carry her little pumpin bucket the whole time!!

This little princess was simply adorable!! The cutest!!
I think the highlight of the evening was when we went to the school for trunk or treat! The girls enjoyed a hot dog, and always love "going to their school" They got plenty of candy that we are all enjoying!! Oh, and another thing, it was like summer in Ohio on Friday night, and winter on Saturday!

Check out my next post(Halloween part 2) to hear what we did on Saturday!!!

Scripture Sunday

I haven't done a scripture Sunday for a while, but I thought I would try to bring it back(we'll see how long this lasts..lol) Since it is Sunday I wanted to focus on God....he is the creator, the prince of peace, my savior, my EVERYTHING! Here is an excellent couple of verses that really define a Christian....I hope they mean something to you too!!

1 Corinthians 1:18-31

18For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."
20Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.
26Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before him. 30It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord

I hope you have had a blessed Lord's day! I know I have!!
