It's almost Fall, ya'll! :) I do believe that Fall is my favorite time of the year. I really, really love Christmas but Fall has my whole heart! I love the crisp, cool air. The drop in humidity. There always seems to be a "shift" in attitudes - a "perkiness", if you will.
I don't really know what brought on this love of Fall. Probably the hustle and bustle of Craft Sale, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and BLACK FRIDAY!!! The baking, the crafting, the sewing, the shopping! In addition, my children have birthdays in September, October and November!
Kirstyn just turned 21 and is getting ready to complete her Associates degree in Elementary Education. I am proud of her! She is going on to get her Bachelors in Special Education. She definitely has a calling in this field. She is never happier than when she is around little children.
Ryan is a Senior in High School! I am proud of him. It hasn't been easy for him, but he has been persistant! He has a new job working for Kubota, and he got a "new to him" car that he is ultra proud of. I'm praying that he stays on track and gets everything in his life parallel to God's will for him. I can see that God has been working on him, but he still has a way to go. He's going to be a wonderful man, I can tell.
Malissia will be Sweet 16 this October! We're having a ball - kinda. She wants a costume party where everyone comes dressed as their favorite story book character! She's coming as Cinderella, which is predictable for all who know her! I started cutting out the corset to her ball gown last night! I can't wait to get it finished. She still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up. She has been talking about being a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. The last 3 years or so she wanted to specifically be a marine biologist. However, the last few weeks she has been considering going to college to get a basic business degree and trying to become the best homemaker, wife, mother she can when the time comes. She has a lot of praying and fasting to do before this time comes - I pray she will let God will lead her along the path He has chosen for her. She is very talented, artistic, creative, and bubbly. God has His work cut out for Him! :)
Then there's the weddings. There have been 4 so far this year. There are still 2 to go. Jayde & Brandon and Macy & Daniel. So exciting - romance in the air and all that!
Last, but not least, is the Craft Sale! It's in 5 weeks! OMW! I have 3 bridesmaid dresses and 1 ball gown to sew before Craft Sale gets here. That doesn't include my crafts, which are going to be sewn! AAAAUUUUGGGHHH! What have I got myself into? Well, the house is clean, laundry is done, bills are paid - so that leaves SEWING! I can sew with NO GUILT! Yea! It's my favorite thing to do besides bake, which I will probably do, also!
So, that's about all I have for today. I'm not talked out, by no means, but I've probably said all that any of you would be interested in. Anything more and I'd be rambling. Bye, now!
