.....OK......this is the part where you find out, (as if you didn't already know) what i can't do on blogger...... i have learned how to get the video here to my post, but i still haven't learned how to get it where i want it..........(which was at the end of this post) hum. so if any of you, with your vast amounts of untapped knowledge can help me out, i would truly love it!

the first time i saw this video it was on my niece caralee's blog. and she's right it's incredibly powerful.

now for the rest of the post, the part that was supposed to come before the i am again, saying that time is flying by at breakneck speeds! i have been busy, but it's your best guess at what i've been busy doing. just everyday living i think. lol my sister asked me why i wasn't blogging anymore.......oh my heck, i thought i was! but i guess it was over a week ago that i even posted a tiny tadbit. who knows what i'm doing.....dishes? watering? picking the beans......again, laundry? watching grandchildren? (which is fun) cooking? (which leads to more dishes...)
whatever it is i've been doing, i still can't seem to get all the non-bedroom stuff out of my bedroom! anyone else have that trouble? hum, just as i suspected. i . am. the. only. one. that. would. possibly. have. this. habit. (way to go.) lol

our community recently celebrated pioneer day (called longhorn days here) and a few of my children were involved in an old fashioned melodrama. he ain't done right by nell. our oldest daughter was the director, our oldest son was the hero(ahhhhh) and another daughter and two daughters in law did the pre show. one of our dil also sewed costumes. it was presented in the outdoor amphitheater where we had to bring our own chairs, got to boo at the villain, cheer for the hero, and make lovey sounds for the heroin. it was so fun to watch so many of my kids preform. we

are a family of hams i do believe!

my son, the hero....(who really is a good guy) lol

this is my friend naomi, who played the "granny". she was a hoot. don't you just love the villain? he was great!

i love this floor! i am considering doing this , or should say having it's cement. acid stained?

this is our niece caralee, her daughter lilli who is 22 mo, and brand spankin new baby carmen elizabeth. she weighed 9lbs 2.5 ounces, and was 22 inches long. They live all the way across the country in philadelphia pa, going to dental school. Isn't that a sweet baby? well, two sweet little girls.

here, is where i wanted the video...........sigh, oh least i got it to my

Wow, that is really powerful! I enjoyed it. Thank you! It makes me so grateful to have my children. Life is short. I'm glad my children have been my priority in life, especially now that I am older and so are they! I chose to stay at home with my children and I'm grateful I could choose.

My heart breaks for those that are trying to conceive without any success. My heart goes out to you! Life has a plan and a purpose for you! You are loved and not alone!
Don't give up!

There is power in Sisterhood!

What a great video. Infertility is so painful. It seems like young girls who don't want to get pregnant do and those who want to can't. Even though I have four kids (#4 is adopted) I've struggled with it too. Looks like your family had lots of fun with the Melodrama. Mimi

I'm always the nay sayer. I am on the opposite end of that video, and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about it. All for the best eh! Good video I guess. I hope some of ya'll who went to the play had the good sense to record it? It looked way fun, course it always is over to your homestead.

The first time I heard that song, I was totally in the same situation. My best friend had "accidentally" gotten pregnant out of wedlock. It was VERY HARD! The song although made me cry a lot seemed to help because I guess I realized there was someone out there who felt the way I did. I LOVE IT!

As for everything else- you aren't the only one with the bedroom problem! and Naomi is a wonderfull Granny- That is probably where shantay got it! (did you see her in the school play? She was great too!)

Did you say Longhorn days? :) I am from the West too (just a neighboring small town to you) and know that temple on your side bar very well, not as well as I wish I moved shortly after the open house.
