Brittany is my oldest. She is 19 and attends the Unversity of Tulsa as a freshman, with Music as a first major and Vocal Performance as a second major. She is really very talented if I do say so myself.
Amanda is 15, a Sophmore in highschool. And she is envolved in everything... NHS, SERteens, Academic Club, CSU, Special Olympics helper, and is in all honors classes. She is a busy girl and thinks she has time for a job. I think not.
Jillian is 10, and in the 5th grade. She has joined together with a few friends at school, and on Wednesdays instead of going to recess she has a Bible study like the high school does. I was so very proud and impressed. They organized everything on there own.
And then there's Addeline, or Addie as we call her. And she is 5, will be 6 in Dec. She started Kindergarten this year and loves it. She keeps us all entertained with her vast imagination.
My oldest 2 have Dark brown hair and dark brown eyes from our Cherokee heritage. And Jillian has curly dark blonde hair with dark brown eyes. And Addie has blonde hair and my blue eyes. They are so so beutiful inside and out. It still amazes me how 4 children come from the same parents and are so completely different. Thank goodness! I just don't think I could handle more than 1 of each of them! haha.
Ok, I know I am a bit long winded today! But I had such an exciting weekend! I just have to share!
First off, we were woke up early Saturday morning to a small earthquake! In Oklahoma! I mean I know there are several fault lines that run through here. But in all my life, this past year has been the only time I have experienced one in this area! Well ever... so it kinda woke me up. I thought it was just a big strong wind blowing againgst my house. No biggie. I rolled over and went back to sleep.
Got up bright and early to find out it was not a wind. But not an over all big deal eitherat 4.7. Then there was a larger one Saturday night. That one we felt and left no doubt what we were experiencing! It was a 5.6. Which caused some damage in areas closer to the epi-center. But just made us feel like we were on a wild ride.
So Angie, my dearest friend from Berry Homespun Primitives and I went to a large yard sale my dad was having out in the crisp, and I mean CRISP cool air. My dad holds these yard sales for charity. So everything is donated. And all the money goes to wildfire victims in his area. The fires came right up to his home and melted some of the skirting, and burned most of his 10 acres. He was so blessed not to lose anything, that now he is trying to help those who did.
Anyway, I got some pics of what I picked up. And I have some work to do on some of them. But that's all the fun, right? Well, I keep telling myself that. But the outcome is well worth the effort.
Lets see, there is this pretty chair. I just had to have. Several little jelly molds, a butter press, a butter crock, a set of shutters, an old throw that I am going to make a chair cushion with for my new chair and Angie's matching one. And an old milk jug with porcelain inside.
Ok! That's all. Thanks for stopping by. I have to enjoyed visiting with everyone.
Have a Blessed week!
