Happy Birthday to Hubby

Today is hubby birthday. We have had a wonderful day celebrating it with him. Happy Birthday sweetie. I love ya.

Well they are saying that there is a possibility that we could be in for  another big snow. I just am not believing this weather. We just don't get snow here in Al like this.

Watching the news tonight and we can either get 7 to 12 inches or if the front goes another way we can get 2 inches.  Wow, just now sure that I am ready for another 7 to 12 inches of snow again.

Florida is sounding like  a good place to live right now,lolo.

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

God Bless

Scholarships and Grants for College

Well this post may be short because I have come down with a headache this evening. But I wanted to post and ask a question to all of those that read my blog.

 My son is in his first year of College. We tried last year to get a grant to help pay for his college but was turned down. We also tryed for a scholarship thru our local community college but was turned down for that to.

My question to all of you is this. Is there certain websites we can go to to get help. I know there are tons of website out there, I have looked at what seems like Thousands of websites for help on getting scholarships for my son but they are seem to be for a certain type. Say like if your going to be a Engineer or a Doctor, etc. Since this is his first year, he still hasn't really made up his mind on what he is going for, altho he has an idea.

If you have been thru this and can lead me in a direction that would be so helpful, I would appreciate it so very very much. Paying for college this year has been a very hard thing to do. We are so greatful that we were able to do it but if we can get some help, we would be
ever so greatful.

Right now we are trying to pass on Loans for college. We have some friends that have racked up some very high debt in college loans and they will be forever paying this off, and we are trying our best not to put our son thru that if at all possible.

I know that most college application are to be turned in by March so that is why I am trying my best to get this going now.

If you know of any information, please leave me a message in the comment section.

Thanks so much .

God Bless

Her First Make-up Makeover

Today was special for my daughter. She wanted to go and get her first Make-up Makeover. I had told her several weeks ago  that if she accomplished a goal that I set for her that I would take her.

We headed out this morning to Merle Normans. The lady was so nice and didn't try to sell us everything in the store. I told her that we were there to get the right color of foundation  for my daughter. That this is her first time to try on makeup.

The lady was so nice and try several different colors to make sure we got the right color. Not to dark and not to light. Just perfect.

We  left  and went and picked up a few other items we needed and then came home. I told her if she wanted she could clean her face and I would totally redo her makeup for her and we would try a little eyeshadow and a little blush and a little lip gloss.

I would not let the lady in the store put those items on her. You see my daughter is only 12 years old and I feel does not need all of that stuff to make her beautiful. She is just beautiful the way she is. But she wanted to see what it looked like with everything on beside just foundation.

So we did the works at home and I just nearly cryed. My daughter is beautiful with or without makeup but with makeup she looks so grown up and more beautiful. And it really hit me that she will be a teenage very very soon .

She just melts my heart with her beautiful smile and her personality.
I love you my Mea. I enjoyed our day together. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Our Snow is beginning to melt. Yipppee.  I am so looking forward to summer time and the temps reaching 85 to 90 degrees.lolo.

Will it ever Melt Away

Will the Snow ever go away. We were all so excited to see it come but after being cooped up at home for 3 days  and then having to drive on it, I am so ready for it to melt.

Today as I was leaving for work I slid all the way down my driveway sideways. I was scared to death. I just knew that I was going to hit a car coming down the road or I wasn't going to be able to stop before I hit our fence.  But luckly I did.

The forecast high for tomorrow is 47 degrees. That should hopefully melt most of it.

Bless everyones heart that has to deal with snow most of the winter. I just don't see how you handle it. I think I would just pack up and move to  Florida,lolo.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday and has a Super Weekend.

God Bless

The Weatherman was Right on Target

Well we got our Snow. Yippeee. It is just beautiful. I was up till midnight last night watching it snow, it was so pretty coming down. When I went to bed we had 2 1/2 inches and got up this morning and we have nearly 9 inches of snow. WOW . We never get that much snow here, matter of fact we never get snow. Maybe ever 7 to 10 year we may get a dusting.

But to say we are thrilled is the understatement. We got a beautiful snow Christmas Morning and now this. Here are a few pics I wanted to share with you.

My Son and Daugher packing snow in a bucket to build a fort.

My daughter jumping the in back of hubby truck. She had a ball doing that. It was full of snow.

My daughter making a snow Angel in the back of the truck,lolo

Our sweet dog Bandit. The snow just about covered him up, but he had a good time playing in it.

The Fort that the kids build. It is so neat. It was dark time before they finished it but  there will be time tomorrow to play in it.

Another view of the Fort. I have a feeling there will lots of snowball fights tomorrow behind this fort. Can't wait.

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful monday. It is a beautiful snowy monday here and I am loving every minute of it. We have had a wonderful family day and  I pray that if anyone has to be on the roads that they are safe. They are calling for another inch of snow in the morning, Yippeee. Can't wait to sit and watch it fall. God handiwork is just Awesome. We are enjoy every minute of his beautiful creation.

I hope you have a wonderful and safe week. May God richly bless you with a safe and happy week.

God Bless

The Excitement is Building

Well to say that we are excited is a understatement. The weather man is saying that we may get 7 to 8 inches of snow starting Tomorrow and going thru Tuesday.

They are also saying that we could get 1 to 2 inches of ice. Now that we could do without. Ice scares me. I do not want ice. Our little community will most likely be without power if we get ice.

We got 4 inches on Christmas Day and it was beautiful, I love it. My kids had the best time.

You see around here we don't get snow very much so when we do get it everything just about shuts down. We don't have snowplows to clear the roads and we live in the country so we have to just wait it out until the weather gets warmer and the roads clear out.

I think what I am mostly scare of is losing power. We don't have a fireplace to keep warm. We do have kerosene heater, but it scares me to use it. So I am hoping that if we do get ice, that we don't lose power and that my family will all be here at home and not stuck at work.

I have cooked Hamburger stew and Beef stew today to freeze, so that if we do lose power all we have to do is heat it up on our camp stove. I also cook a lemon cake, so no worrys of going hungry,lolo.

So I guess we will just see what mother nature brings out way starting Tomorrow night and thru Tuesday.

I hope where every your at, that your safe and sound and having a wonderful weekend.

God  Bless

Headache, No Water at Work and Just Annoyed

Ever had one of those days. Today started at as one of those days. As I sit here typing this, the TV in the kitchen is so loud and No one is watching it and the dishwashing is going and you can hear it and I have the worst HEADACHE. UUUUGGGH.

 The Tv in the living room is on and no one is watching it either, but for some reason everyone thinks you have to have every Tv in the house on. Why, I don't know,lolo.

Ok Sorry, didn't mean for my post today to start out as a gripe, but I guess that is just the mood I am in today.

The good part so far today is that I was able to get off work early today. The whole city was having water problems so it shut down our work place and we got off work early today. I did enjoy that.

But for some reason today everything is just annoying me, I have the worst Headache that I just can't seem to shake today.

I sure hope that your Week has started off better than mine. Here hoping that tomorrow is a better day for everyone.

God Bless
