My Wonderful Mom

Since Thursday our family has been fighting the flu that has been going around. I caught it Friday night and on Saturday and Sunday I pretty much did nothing except lay on the couch or my bed. On Sunday night I called my mom to talk to her about my dad’s birthday party this next weekend and I told her that we were all sick. The next morning she calls back to tell us she is on her way over (a 2 hr. drive one way) with a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. I told her that she probably shouldn’t come because I didn’t want her to get sick but she said she wanted to come any way. Along with the soup she brought garlic bread, lemon lime soda, hard candy for sore throats, oranges, fruit salad, and a bunch of veggies from her garden. As you can see we were totally spoiled.

Austin, Karissa, Brendan, and I are all still sick today though feeling much better. Tyler seems to be totally better. Ethan and Aleigha are just now getting sick, and Jacob started feeling sick Sunday and still is today though it didn’t hit him very hard thankfully.  So please keep us in your prayers.                   -Angie

Point of view




Optimist : The glass is half-full.









Pessimist : The glass is half-empty.







Realist : Yep. That's a glass, alright.








Idealist : One day, cold-fusion from a glass of water will provide unlimited energy and end war.








Capitalist : If I bottled this and gave it a New Agey sounding name, I could make a fortune.







Communist : This drink belongs to every single one of us in equal measure.








Conspiracist : The government is fluoridating the water for mind-control purposes.








Sexist : This glass isn't gonna refill itself, honeybun...








Nihilist : The glass does not exist, and neither do I.









Opportunist : There's a funny t-shirt in here somewhere.

Monopoly

Hasbro just came out with a joint venture including Google to allow for an online Monoply experiance that is unique and in my opinion facinating.
You start out with 3 mil in Monopoly money and have the opertunity to purchase streets anywhere in the world then build on them and increase you wealth. This is a really cool game! You can find it at

A great Visit

Today was a great day for visiting. My Dad, Mom, Grandma, and Nephew Matthew all made the trec over the hill just to see us (I think the grandkids are a big draw). We had a great time visiting and since this was the first time my Grandma has been here, we showed her around the house. It is funny that likely the next time she visits we will show her our new house as well (although we will own that one).
Of course since last time my parents visited we hooked them on the Wii, we turned it on again. Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun playing even though I won everytime :).
Angie prepared an awsome feast including her famous (at least to us) BBQ pork sandwiches and those delicious seasoned potatoes. The cap to the meal was PIE! Blackberry and Apple WOW! I do belive this was the best blackberry pie I have ever eaten. Man she is amazing.
After they left we chilled for a while and then went to play tennis and work off some of those calories. Quite the full day.
As I write this I am reminded of just how much God has blessed me. He has provided me with a loving family, wonderful children, and most of all salvation and a real relationship knowing him. It pains me to see so many people wandering this world without him or maybe even worse telling themselves that they do know their god (little g) but not really having a connection to the creator by the ONLY way possible... Trust in Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross. Yes that is right "It is finished" do not add anything else to it. It is not believe on Jesus and got to___ or believe in Jesus and do ______ . Romans 10:9 proclaims Believe on him and Confess and tho shall be saved. God is Good!

Exciting Changes

Well I know I haven't been blogging that much lately, but its been busy around here! For one we started school two weeks ago and that keeps me busy from 8a.m. till 3p.m. so with that and TRYING to keep my house clean (emphasis on trying) and my other responsibilities of being a wife and mom of 6 there hasn't been much time for being on the computer. For two on Jacob's days off and in the evenings we have been house hunting. We are most likely moving again, though not back to the Rogue Valley as we had planned, but instead we are staying right here in Klamath Falls. Now I know that may come as a surprise to you all after hearing us make so much fun of Klamath Falls but to tell you the truth it kind of grows on you. We all like it so much better here than we ever thought we would. So back to the house hunting, we found a house we really like and put an offer on it and it has been excepted so now all we are waiting on is the bank to appraise it and the inspections to all be done and if all that goes well we should have it buy the end of October or beginning of November. It is a newer house built in 2004 and has 4 bedrooms/2baths and a small den/office area that I am planning on making into our school room. It is on 1/2 an acre and the back yard is completely fenced and huge. Here is a couple of pics for now. More to come if we get it.
