It's almost Thanksgiving...What a wonderful time of the year to give thanks for all the wonderful blessings that God has bestowed upon us!I thank God first for sending His Son to die on the cross for my salvation...I am so unworthy! I thank Him for my wonderful family...God has blessed both Danny and I with godly parents and grandparents...we love and appreciate them very much! We greatly miss those who have gone on before us! We also love our extended family very much...our siblings(and their spouses), uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins.I thank God for my precious husband. He is truly the kindest, most thoughtful husband a girl could have...God sent me a wonderful gift in Danny. He is my best friend and is so good to me! We both thank God every day for our three wonderful children-We love seeing life through their eyes...they make our house fun and exciting! We thank Him for all the friends He has brought into our lives...We love you all! We want to cherish the life God has given us! We wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving-We hope that you can spend time with friends and family. May you feel God's love and peace! We will be with the England clan in West Virginia(We are meeting at Becky and Dan's house...brave people!)We plan to have a great time! We also get to stop and see our long-time, wonderful friends..David and Annette Marcum and their kids Austin and Emily. Can't wait!

"Alyson Dawn" has arrived!

I wanted to share some pictures of my new little cousin(though I get to be called "Aunt Ronda", I do believe!) Greg and Shelly Penn were blessed with a beautiful, little girl---"Alyson Dawn"--- on October 30, 2007...I praise God for sending such a precious, healthy baby to them...She is so adorable! We are all very happy for them....Congratulations, Greg and Shelly! God has sent you a beautiful gift! We can't wait to spoil her! Corey, Cassie and Cade are all very excited to have a new cousin...

A fun day for the kids...

My kids always look forward to "dressing up" and having fun with their friends on "Jack-o-Lantern" day....They start talking about what they want to "be" the previous year ,I think! Corey is getting a little "mature"-shall we say- and it is harder for him to decide what to be....This year he chose to be a "soldier"...Cassie was an "Ice princess" and Cade was "Woody"(The sheriff from Toy Story). We went trick-or-treating with the Going children....a tradition for as long as we have both had little ones...then on to church which was followed by a fun party including great snacks ,several spills and lots of laughs! I believe that we made lasting memories!
