this little event is upon us again...can you believe it's Christmastime again?...Piper has her preschool Christmas program tomorrow night...and if you can find her in this picture, I will give you...a...umm, the green sucker that I got from the bank yesterday.
Grandma with Molly, back in the days when we could keep Molls pinned down.
desperate times call for desperate blog posts.
sorry 'bout that dad...
I have a good excuse though, as to why I was MIA yesterday...
Our sewage ejector gave up in our downstairs...(did I mention this already?) when you have 7 folks using the toilet or needing clean clothing, it's kind of a big deal.
We woke up to the looooooovely smell of raw sewage yesterday...good. stuff.
David, being the go-getter that he is, wasn't going to sit by and make us smell it...he pulled the thing apart, to get a head start on whatever work was going to need to be done. a fun, warm day ensued.
Praise God that our awesome friend Tim stopped to get us a new pump and the ability to hook it up, get it running. I didn't take any pictures because, well, yesterday was just a not good day and taking pics was the furthest thing from my haywire brain. Thank you, Tim, from the bottom of my 2 sizes too small heart...we are so grateful for your expertise, help, willingness, and friendship. (The kids used to call him Timmy, I don't think they do so much now.) Thanks Timmy. he is soooooo not a Timmy.
is that a good enough excuse?
so here we have our way too often feature of "This time last year"...
I just wanna say that I thank the Lord for a new day. Nothing gives you different, better perspective than a new day. I know there's a verse for that and i will try to find it but right now, the kids are in need of my presence so off I go.
Have a glorious Wednesday. choose JOY. Embrace those holidays.
