“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Happy New Year Everybody!
We are about to start our festivities...... Pizza is definitely on the menu. :)
The girlies and I worked all day long getting the rest of the Decorations put away, and then rearranging the living room and a couple of bedrooms. We decided to add 3 book cases to be near the school area.
That way, MOST of our books are in the same room. It looks rather library like, but I like it. :)
I was also thinning out books deciding what stays and what goes. That is always hard.
And then, ANNA and I ventured out one more time to see if we could find her some clothing that fits.
She just doesn't stop growing! We tried the other day, and she was too overwhelmed with trying things on, and the sisters were with us. So today, we went alone.
SUCCESS!!! We had a very sweet mother daughter time, and we even snuck out to Sonic where she had a "butter finger blast". :)
She found several shirts she liked and are nice enough for church. Folks, this is a big deal! It is HARD to find things she really likes. We hit a bonanza today though. :)
We brought home PJ's for Erika too, and a baby out fit for Sarah's doll.
All in all it was a great last day of the year!
Hello 2011~!!! We're coming at ya!
