A New Adventure

I am going to start slowly getting out of the sewing business unless I have custom orders. I am going to start selling my photos. I will be doing specialty photos also. Thinking alphabet names, buildings ie. barns, sheds, outhouses and thinking maybe tea party shots.

I am so excited. I feel the Lord is leading me this direction and cannot wait to start on my journey.

My mother board on my main computer died so I am on an ancient laptop at the moment. I am hoping to possibly sell a few photos to get me back online with my main computer.

Woohoo! Life is Good!

Not Me~Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I am going to write about Not Me's from over the years. With having 4 kiddos I have quite a few doozies.

Audrey my baby girl at 3 years old (after she cut her hair on Father's Day) :(

Way back in the day when my baby girl (now 18) would sneak out in the kitchen and take a bowl and "bake" under the kitchen table. She'd put it eggs, flour, oatmeal, olives, coffee, pretty much anything she could find in the fridge.......She has turned into a wonderful baker/cook :D

Me, my Daddy holding Jimmy my baby brother and Audrey Mook our second cousin

But then her mommy (that would be me) was a little tyke and wanted to be a big helper to her daddy.....so then she put a pot on the stove put some coffee and less water in the pot and turned on the burner....I wanted to make my daddy his morning coffee :D

Jimmy my baby brother

Way back in the day my little brother was outback flying a kite. Playing for a good while.....he went running toward the neighbors parked truck....not watching where he was going right into the back of the neighbors truck.....so my dad came down the backyard to pick us up. The good big sister I am didn't say Jimmy I think you'll need stitches :O started crying all over again. Get down to the hospital. The nurses ask my dad how fast the truck was going. It was parked.....my poor mom at work got the same story that the truck was moving......nope! It was parked!

Count Your Blessings Monday

I attended an awesome church yesterday! I praise and thank God to have taken me in this direction. This church is very open in praising God. It was awesome! Pastor James Bond and his wife Jilline are wonderful. She has such a beautiful voice. His service was wonderful! It was like he was talking to me and my situations in life.

I am thankful for
My Lord
My new found church
My wonderful hubby
My children
My mom
My internet friends
Unemployment so we can live till hubby gets back to work

Thank you God for all the blessings in my life....

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

This is the story of my angel Dominick Joseph~
Dominick's Story

I was just thrilled to be pregnant again. My daughter was 5yo and I wanted a boy so bad. I had the Norplant removed in October of 1995 and became pregnant in December of 1995. Everything was going great. I had a six week ultrasound to see actually how far along I was. By my calculations I was right. We heard the heartbeat (and saw it). I had my 13 week check-up and everything was fine. Went in for my 17 week check-up and they couldn't find a heartbeat. I was so scared. I was by myself (boyfriend at home with my daughter). They had me go to the hospital for an emergency ultrasound. On the way their I heard a song that will be my son's song forever - Go Rest High On That Mountain - Vince Gill. I cried so hard. Wanting so bad for this to be a bad dream.

I got to the hospital and waited for about a half an hour to do the ultrasound. That was horrible. I had it done and the technician didn't say anything. She wasn't aloud without the doctor being there. I couldn't see the monitor. So I didn't know what was going on. I was released. I waited again I swear forever. Probably another half an hour or so. The doctor came and said I am sorry your baby has passed on. (I don't think I would want that job). I cried and cried. Had to call my boyfriend. He rushed down and my best friend had just called before he left and met him down there and took my daughter so I could deal with it.

They said he passed on at about 16 weeks. Nobody knows what exactly happened to Dominick. We had him buried at a cemetary where a lot of our relatives have been buried. His grandmother bought the plot. I am so greatful to her. I was scheduled to be induced on March 23, 1996. That was horrible to go through the labor and have nothing to show for it. He was born at 7:44 that night. Weighed 3 ounces and was 7 inches long.

We buried our son on March 26, 1996. That had to be one of the coldest days that year. We buried him next to a mountain.

It took us a while but on Thursday, May 7, 1998, his headstone was put on. It took us awhile to save it up. But we did it. Now the world knows all about Dominick Joseph Francis.

Not Me~Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

In the past week I have not bribed my hubby to finally clean out the garage by taking away the remote to his tv noooo not me. I didn't finally start cleaning out said garage after 3 years of all the stuff being in there. Stuff that belongs to my grandparents, his grandparents, my parents and us.

My 12 year old son didn't run in the house and wake his sister up this evening at 6pm and tell her it was time to go to school hurry you will miss the bus. Nooo not my 12 year old. He wouldn't do something like that.

And that same 12 year old on a Saturday afternoon didn't mow the lawn and give his little brother a ride in the wagon and the dog followed him around the whole yard. Dude's good at multitasking.

I didn't just clean out under my 9 year old daughter's bed and find 3/4's of her clothes. Having to do 4 loads of laundry....not my daughter she wouldn't shove all her clothing under her bed.....

I am sure this coming week will be full of Not Me's......Being a mommy of 4 life is FUN! :D
