Snapped this picture of Emma last night. She is wearing her reindeer toboggan I bought for her. I just love the expression on her face.

Three generations of Haneys are represented in this photo. My husband Phillip....his son Phillip(we call him Dewain) and his son Phillip. When we are all together and someone says Phillip, it can get very confusing. The youngest Phillip just got married. Remember....the dried red beans!LOL It is not very often that we get a picture of the three of them together. I'm sure there will be another Phillip in the future!

Well, I have seen it all now. Phillip's grandson got married yesterday in a simple ceremony at the grandmother's house. As things were winding down and the bride and groom were preparing to leave the grandmother realized she had forgotten to get birdseed to throw. They were looking for anything they could find to substitute for the birdseed. Yes, you guessed right if you took a hint from the photo. We threw dried red beans!!! I could not stop laughing long enough to throw mine. I've been to a lot of weddings but I think this is the funnest thing I've ever experienced at one. The Bride and Groom didn't seem to mind, of course they are young and in love so a few beans didn't cause any problems. If anything it gave them a memory. It's something none of us will never forget.

Sleep. That is what I needed last night. I did not sleep well the night before and I was dragging when I got home yesterday. On top of that it has been raining and that just seemed to make my eyelids heavier. I managed to stay awake through Wheel of Fortune, but stretched out on the sofa for Jeopardy and that was end of story. LOL Phillip finally got me awake enough to tell me to go to bed. You would have thought I had been drinking if you could have seen me trying to walk to the bedroom. I was staggering and stumbling all over the place. How sweet it was to collapse into a nice warm bed with fresh clean sheets. Needless to say I slept like a baby. Just like little sweet Emma in this photo. How fortunate I am to be able to sleep in a bed in a warm house and protected by a loving heavenly Father...just like Emma. No need to worry about a thing...just go to sleep and let Him take away the cares of the world. Ahhhhh.....sleep! May you enjoy a restful and peaceful night. Sweet Dreams!

Blessed! That is how I feel today. A few months ago I was wondering how we were going to make it til the end of the year financially. Phillip was told he should hear from his disability in December and then the lawyers told him it could be a couple more years. Thank God for the people he has placed in our lives to try to get some results. Through these tough times it is amazing to look back and see His hand at work.
Phillip had loaned $500 to someone never expecting to be repaid. Then out of the blue last month the borrower showed up to repay the loan. The money came at just the right time...not a moment too soon or a moment too late. Isn't it amazing how God works. He didn't promise to give me everything I wanted, but He did promise to supply my need. He has even blessed me with a lot of the things I don't need....such as all my scrapping supplies. The photo I am sharing today are two of the little girls in my life He has blessed me with. Emma is my granddaughter and Laura is my daughter and Emma's Aunt. It is a rare occasion that I get my daughter to pose for the camera.
Take the time with me this Christmas season to stop and remember how BLESSED you really are.

Yes, I think I have finally caught the bug. The blogging bug that is. After a long and crazy day at work it has been relaxing for me to sit here and reflect back on the happenings of the day. Sure, I could do that without a blog, but I would be leaving you out. This way I can share a little bit of my life with others. Like today....my wonderful husband, Phillip called and wanted to take me to lunch. That was just what I needed to get me through a crazy day at work. I never tire of being with that man. When I got home from work he was all excited to tell me about his day. He had been to check on an elderly shut in who had been sick. While he was there she had another visitor. The visitor was the man that used to own the local newspaper. They enjoyed an afternoon of reminiscing. Before he left this gentleman gave my husband a signed copy of a book he had written. He is absorbed in it at this moment.LOL
This is another photo I took at the dinner Saturday night. "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" comes to mind when I see this photo at this the Christmas season. May you be able to say "Glory to the Newborn King" just like the angels did that first Christmas.
So...yes...I think I've caught it! I've caught the blogging bug!!

Can you believe it? Only 18 days til Christmas. As a child it seemed Christmas would never get here soon enough. Now as an adult it seems Christmas is here before you know it. My what a few years can do to the perspective of things. We just had our Christmas dinner for our seniors at our church. The table were decorated beautifully and the food was delicious. Of course I snapped plenty of photos. This photo of the candles is one of my faves. Thought it would be a great one to share with my blogger friends. If you're one that can't wait til Christmas arrives just be patient and enjoy every moment. For those of you that Christmas seems to sneak up on, remember it comes the same time every year!LOL Most importantly,remember, Jesus is the Reason for the Season!

I guess you can now say it's official. I have a blog. I'm not sure how this will turn out, but will give it a try. You see, I love to read but I am not much of a writer. Not sure how much I will have to say.LOL Plenty of nothing perhaps. At least it will give me a place to show off Emma Rose, my grandaughter.
