We spent a lazy day at the Turner house today. Angel baby visited most of the day, while mom slept--she worked her first night shift last night and they came this morning after mom got off work. Little son and I made coookies--OLE MISS REBEL cookies. I have not made roll out cookies in a long time, so we decided to do this for the football game. I am not an Ole Miss fan, I went to Miss State, but I am a SEC football fan. I love college football and basketball, so when the bowl games are on or March Madness for basketball, this is where you can find me and usually the family. We had a blast making these cookies. Lil baby is going to spend the night with us tonight while mom works. Hubby and lil son just came in from outside with a puppy!! It has been running around in our neighborhood for about a week. Oldest son said it was at his house last week and he tried to find the owner, hubby went around the neighborhood tonight and no one claimed it. Daughter and her hubby want it, but they have their hands full with the baby and one dog already. Lil son wants it, but we already have 3 dogs. Oldest son says he is coming to get it and he will take it if no one claims it. His yard is fenced and the other night when it came to his house, his girl friend fell in love with it. She is there tonight, so he plans on getting it after work and taking it home and surprising her. (Update: I stopped writing to take care of baby, since then, he has gotten the dog, they have gone to Walmart and bought all the things you would ever need for a dog, and named him Tip. They have taken it to our friend veteranarian and it is in good health and he believes it is a full blooded Lab.)
I never finished this post yesterday, so I am finishing it this morning. Daughter had a good night at work, son in law is duck hunting, angel baby only got up once last night and right back to sleep, hubby just came in from staying with his mother, lil buddy slept in this morning--he really has worn himself out these holidays, I cooked an awesome breakfast of scrambled eggs, biscuits and sausage balls, and oldest son just checked in and said he and puppy--may be named Trip now, did fine last night. It is so cold this morning. I love it. Simon has his first basketball game this afternoon and then it is time to get back to our normal routine. These last two weeks of having 4 days off has ruined me. I am sure it want take me to long to get back to normal, though.
I saw this verse today and decided it was a good one to dwell on: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." --Ephesians 2:8-10(NIV) I believe this is the verse that Tim Tebow had on his face during the Sugar Bowl. I admire his conviction to Christ and how he has influenced so many with these scriptures on his face. I watched yesterday on the different football games and noticed lots of players had scriptures on their faces. I hope my little man wants to put a scripture on his face next year when we play football. What a great way of witnessing. Ya'll be safe, happy, healthy. Smile, laugh and hug those you love. Oh, I forgot to comment on my new years baby. Ain't she cute!!!--Enjoy and GOD bless ya'll!!!!!!
