They've only just begun
Alrighty, I've been tryin' to post since Saturday, but things just keep happening.

My mother-in-law is trying to come visit us again, 3 birthdays are about to hit next month with Thanksgiving thrown in between, so I'm preparing ahead a time, and I'm trying to keep up with school, but it's kinda distracting for the youngins (and me) when we keep hearing big machines knocking down trees.....which leads me to what I've been wanting to post about.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we're Breaking Ground, we'll here's where it's gonna be.

It may not look like it, but this is over a 150 ft. slope. Somehow they are gonna flip this mountain upside down, flatten it and build a cabin on it.

It's hard for me to visualize all this, but my hubby can see it. I can however show you the view we'll have. (I took these last Tuesday before the construction began.)

It's almost like touching heaven!!!

After many weeks months of waiting, this little guy showed up.

And ever since then they've been digging dirt and clearing trees.

Nothing too exciting has happened yet, but tomorrow the bulldozer is coming and that's when the REAL action is supposed to begin. In the mean time here's a few shots of what they've been doing.

I know it's not much to look at, but I did get some better shots today...I forgot to take pics yesterday:( you'd think I would have learned from my last experience to always have my camera. Hopefully I can update ya'll soon and stop by to say hello. I MISS EVERYONE!!!

Before I head off I wanted to share one last picture. It's not great, (I'm NO photographer) but I thought it was purdy:D

An early Christmas gift for you while I unwind
The last couple of weeks have been wonderful/wild all wrapped up in one, so while I take a little blogging break and unwind, I decided to have a contest.

Below is something I decided to tinker with last night (making graphics relaxes me.) I'm not a professional, but I do like to fiddle around....I guess you could call it a little hobby of mine. So if you'd like this cute little bear on your blog for Christmastime leave me a comment.

I may stop by your blogs and say hello, reading blogs relaxes me too:)

"More of Him" Monday

Diana @ Sunshine on My Shoulders started a new meme last week called "More of Him" Monday. There are 2 wonderful topics to choose from, "Scripture Speaks" or "HIM in My Life". You can read more about "More of Him" Monday HERE!

Usually when our children disobey or fight amongst one another they are sent to the wall. Last month in our small local newspaper my husband found this scripture:
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord Hebrews 12:14.

He cut it out, made a copy of it and taped it to the wall. Now instead of our children just standing on the wall, we have them read the scripture too. I honestly must say, they have been spending less time on the wall and, they are still reading the verse off the wall! I have it on my refrigerator for myself! I must admit, I need the reminder too, not just my children.

Thankful Thursday - Breaking Ground

For almost a year now we have been in the process of trying to have a cabin built.

The first step of course was getting financed. Praise the Lord after many months we were approved. Then we were waiting for all the necessary permits needed to build....

Well, this week we finally got the green light to start grating the area where our cabin is going to be built. So, hopefully in about 2 weeks we'll be breaking ground!

He hath made every thing beautiful in his time. Ecc 3:11

Cow Crossing

I had a bit of a delay coming home today. Apparently someone rammed into our neighbor's fence and their cows went for a stroll. Where's a camera when you need it the most....or at least when you have some time on your hands due to a bunch of cows in the middle of the road.
