I have really enjoyed my time off for Thanksgiving, but tomorrow morning it is time to go back to work. We will only work three weeks and then be off two weeks for Christmas.

I talked to our youngest son, Sammy, a little while ago he said they are about 40 minutes from home, it was so good to have all of them here for Thanksgiving and we are looking forward to having them all back at Christmas.

Friday the Grands help put up the tree, we put up a small one this year, I think it was easier for them to work with, it looks good, I am going to make a tree skirt for it and then put the Christmas village around it, I still need to get the stockings out and hang them and a few other things and then the gifts.

2; 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

We really had a good Thanksgiving, all the kids were here and as you can see we had turkey, will kind of, I saw these cute little oreo turkeys on "Threads of Mine" blog, she said she found the directions at, I thought the kids would really like them, they really did.

We did have chicken salad, ham, watergate salad, chilli, sweetpotato pies, coolwhip, brownies, chips and some really good crescent pumpkin and cream cheese rolls. It was all really good and we all enjoyed something a little different.

63; 1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because thy loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

I have been off work sense Wednesday of last week, I have been trying to catch up on some things around the house but am not getting a lot done. Thursday we went to Trenton to the meat market to get some sausage and then we stopped by another little place to eat some lunch, the sausage is really good, I will not say much about the lunch we eat, but we will not be going back to that place anytime soon. We love to go to the meat market to get sausage and with the kids coming for Thanksgiving we wanted to get some for breakfast while they are here. When I talked to Sammy yesterday he said all of them had been sick except him and Lori, but they were doing better today, so the plan is still to come tomorrow, they will going to my daughter-in-law's parents and then come here thursday for supper, Jason, Cheryl and the girls are coming too, so we will have a house full, but we love it that way. A friend of mine gave me a couple bikes, the only thing we had a do was put some air in the tires. Her kids are getting bigger ones for Christmas so when she ask if the Grands could use them I was happy to get them.

I finished sewing the last quilt for the Grands, all I need to do now is clip it and then take them to the laundry mat to wash them. I started the tablerunner you see at the top of the post, all I have done so far is sew it together, I still need to quilt it, I will probably wait until after Thanksgiving to finish it. I really need to clean my sewing room up, it is also the guestroom and I can't hardly wait for them to come.
95;2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

I will have to say this saturday was better than last saturday, we still miss little LIZZIE GIRL, when you love someone as much as we love her it is really a hard thing when you loose them. It still is hard to come in the house, I want to call her. We both find ourselves looking for her or checking to see if she needs food or water.

I went to a baby shower this afternoon, it was the one I made the diaper bag for, I also made a couple blankets and knitted a little hat on my Knifty Knitter Loom, she really liked all of them, it is nice to give someone something and they act like they really appreciate the gift.

I have now made 5 out of 6 quilts for the Grands !!!!!!! Only one more to go, then I will have to come up with something else to keep me busy.

11; 28, Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29, Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your soul.

30, For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

It was really hard to leave the house today, Eddie was home all day by himself, we really Love our Lizzie Girl and are having a hard time adjusting to her not being here with us, 13 years plus is a long time to spend with someone and then loose them.
We are looking forward to Thankgiving, the kids will be here for supper, I am not doing the turkey, they will be having that with the in-laws, so I will come up with something different, I am not sure now what that will be.
I need to get my quilts finished, I have one dog almost finished and then one more to go, then I will be done with all six, they have really been a lot of fun.

6; 9 After this manner pray ye, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliever us from evil; For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen

This is a very sad day for Eddie and I........Lizzie is gone, she has been leaving us a little each day this week, we took her to the vet three time. this week.....but today was her last visit, he told us it would be the best thing for her....he gave her the shot and she laid her little head on my arm the way she went to sleep many many nights.....but this will be the last time, she is now in her finial resting place and to have to see Eddie dig that was so hard and putting her there was too, we put most of her little toys in there with her and wrapped her in her blanket. Eddie and I are trying to hold on......but it is so lonely around here, we miss her so very much, she has a place in our hearts that only she will ever have, we both Love her sooooo much. We need all the Prayers we can get.


2; 1, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
4, A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

Lizzie, our dog has not been feeling too good the past few days, so today Eddie (hubby) took her to the vet, he said it is congestive heart failure, caused by old age, he put her on Lasix 40 mg 1/2 pill a day and Enalapril 2.5 mg 1/2 tablet eavery 12 hours. It is not the easiest thing to get her to take her medicine, but we fooled her this afternoon with a little ice cream, the vet said she would be needing to go out a lot more for bathroom breaks. What can I say, she is our baby and spoiled rotten, I mean really spoiled and she knows she has us wrapped around her little paw.
At work Bobby was not feeling good either, he was having chills and sick on his stomach, he called before we left this afternoon and said he was feeling a little better.

51; 1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

I talked to our Grands that live away from here today, they seem to be doing good, I ask Eddie Van how he was doing in school, he said his report card was awesome. Pearl said she was doing great too. Lori always ask "Can I talk to Paw-Paw"?, he is usually out side, that is where he was today, she wanted to know what he was doing out side, he loves to get out and just walk, we have some woods behind the house. My Daughter-in Law said she had been visting my blog and said she wanted to set up one herself. I finished quilt # 4 today only 2 more to go. I will post pictures after Christmas, I am really enjoying making these and can't wait for Christmas. I talked to Caitlyn earlier this week she made the principal's list, so all the Grands are doing really good this year, Thanks be to God!!!

15; 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

I had a pretty busy day although I haven't really been feeling too good, not really sick, just not up to par. I did get the Christmas ornaments made that I will be giving my two sisters and their families and my brother and his family, I also made one for Hubby and me, they are all alike, I am calling them our Family ornament I found the instructions at, I also made them a set of coasters and this is were I found the best little TUT , this was a couple years old, but I just saw it, she has some of the cutest things on her blog, I love to go see what pretty things she is doing. You will see I made four sets of coasters alike and the last one is different, it is for a friend of mine.

1; O Sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.
2; Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day.

This has been a cloudy day, but a Blessed day. However first of all at work my sewing machine messed up, it is sick, my needle shaft is stripped, they are going to order one, so in the mean time I will use another one, it works really well, but all my stuff is at my machine, I will be so glad when it is fixed.
After I got home from work , I decided to work on the quilt blocks for a block lotto I am in, it is a double four patch block, we are each doing at least one pair, here is my pair:

I talked to DDIL2's Dad today he is doing good now, he got out of the hospital yesterday, he said his heart had jumped time, they had another word for it but he said that is what it was. Thanks for the Prayers for him. GOD IS SO GOOD !!!!

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing ye shall receive.

Monday, what can I say, I did have a Blessed day. First at work we had a hard time trying to get the clocks all set right, we finally got them set and then one of them was off, so we set it again thought everything as going good until time to go home, that was when we found out something most be wrong with the battery, we will wait until tomorrow to put a new one in. Today for lunch we went to the little Chinese buffet, I now have a new favorite Chinese food, coconut chicken, it is soooooo goooood, yes!!! I eat to much, but, did I say it is soooooo goooood.
Please keep my DDIL2's Dad in your Prayers, he is in the hospital, they are doing some test, his blood pressure keeps going up and down and so does his heart rate. The man I work for had to go see his Mom this morning too, she fell and broke her hip and they had to do surgery, so please remember her in your Prayers too.

5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

This has been a good day, I did the laundry, I hung all of it out but the towels, they are in the dryer now, I got the other clothes washed and hung out early, they dried real good today. The weather has been great today, it was nice and warm. I also did a little other house work. Besides that I finished clipping the rag quilt cat for Caroline, one of our four year old Granddaughters and I cut out a rag quilt bear for Pearl our five year old Granddaughter.

150: 6 Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
