Day at Gatlinburg and Ripleys aquarium with my sister! New pictures of Gabrielle(my cousin)

Last Wednesday my sister her husband and the kids went to Gatlinburg Here are just a few pictures

My cousin Felicia's water broke Thursday evening at 36 weeks, she was in labor for 24 hours, which is unusual for a third baby. Gabriella was born Friday night around 9:30 weighing 5 lbs 11 ozs. I don't have many pictures of Gabriella with Felicia because she was having trouble breathing and they had to put her on oxygen. I was at the hospital the whole time and was up 40 hours so I left right after she was born. I wouldn't trade it for anything though because I was there with her other two births. Felicia has been through so much especially losing sweet little Nathaniel 6 years ago. But I know Gabriella will be just fine. She should get to come home Monday.

Making your Home a Haven monday~Laundry

Today's Challenge at Crystal's blog :

1) Refresh Your Spirit (5 minutes)

Three things I am thankful for:
1.My salvation, without Jesus Christ I would be no where.
2.My family~my husband is my rock and the best man in the world. My children are such a blessing from the lord, and all of my other extended family.
3.My home~God has blessed us with all are needs.

STOP: Is your morning routine done? Don't move on to #2 unless it is!

2) Take Time to Plan (5 minutes)
My to do list:
-read God's word
-detail clean my room
-mail off packages and bills
-get the house clean

For breakfast we are having cereal
For lunch we are having peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
For dinner we are having spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, with boiled eggs

3) Do Something! (15 minutes or so)

"Today we're going to focus on the laundry and laundry room. Light a candle, put on your apron, turn on some uplifting music, and get busy!

Your goal by the end of today is to have all of your laundry finished, folded, and put away. I'm usually behind on the laundry on Monday mornings as I rarely run much laundry over the weekends so this will be a great project for me to tackle!

For those of you with a laundry room or laundry area, take some time to organize and clean up this area. Wipe down your washer and dryer, check for socks and other articles of clothing behind and on the sides of your washer and dryer, and clean out your dryer lint." (Crystal's words)

What a perfect day for this my cousin Felicia gave birth to her little girl Friday and I was in Georgia all weekend, so my laundry is really behind. So I will take a picture of before and update with pictures of after later.


It took me longer than usual because my dryer would not dry my clothes I had to dry loads 2-3 times to get them dry. I sure do hope my dryer is not giving out on me, I believe it is a heating element. Oh well, I still have a load in the washer and dryer but then I am done for the day. I hope everyone else had a great day.
