Stone Mountain Park in Georgia

We were able to stop by Stone Mountain Park for a little bit. We didn't get to do much at all but take pictures of the Confederate Memorial carving. The weather was changing and getting to a point where we didn't want to stay. It was drizzling and the kids were getting wet.

We left a little bit after we got our annual membership pass. The lines were long which held us from touring the park. But hey, there's nothing to complain about since we can always come back anytime for up to a year! Of course, we're planning on coming back! There's so much to see and do!

We are very grateful for those who paid for our annual parking and membership pass! I definitely feel like we're being spoiled, don't you?? But really, they're a blessing to us!

I think this is a great park to spend with family!

Just hanging outside

November 20, 2012

It was a beautiful day to go outside.  I let Joanna take Peter for a stroll. Of course, with our supervision.

She seemed to enjoy pushing Peter on that stroller. Then, daddy let her ride the tractor or whatever you call that machine.

Just trying to keep Joanna from crying

We went to Walmart to get necessities. Before I know it, it was time for lunch. Joanna was getting fussy. My poor child, she's hungry and getting sleepy. Because she was fussy, I had to think fast. I decided to pull up into the toys section. Grab something that'll keep her from crying and continued on with my shopping.

She did good until daddy and I met up. Peter fell asleep and Matt had to pick him up because his head was falling to the side. I'd wish I'd captured that on video!  (next time, if he does it again)  I moved Joanna in the other cart because all the groceries was put there. That was not a good idea because she has started behaving badly.  Crying, not wanting to walk and all.  Daddy had to take her and Peter to the truck and wait until I finish shopping.  Once they left, I'd picked up a few items before checking out.

Anyway, I wanted to share this cute video of her hugging a stuff doggie.  I love it when she'd smiled at the video. She knew I was videotaping her hence her sporting a smile. What a smart little girl!  You can tell that she's tired.

Remember this video is posted temporary on my Photobuck link.  I will delete it there once I upgrade my computer. I usually post my videos on Youtube and will continue to. So you'll see this video on Youtube.

Hooray for December!

Pinch me!  Pinch me!  It's almost time for us to head to Texas! YES!!!

For the past few days, I've been wanting to pack all our suitcases but it's no use because we use everything. Besides that,  the weather here is unbelievable nice!  Although, it gets cold at night but thankfully warms up during the day. This is typical in Texas, right?  I know.

I'm thankful for the nice weather though because I want to check out a park that's displaying Christmas lights. A sweet older couple from church here in Georgia bought us a parking permit pass to the Stone Mountain Park in Georgia!  They said it's worth going there because they things for family to do. Isn't that sweet of them or what?!  They really wanted us to go see and enjoy the Christmas light at the park with the kids.  They are a blessing!  I can't believe the parking cost $35.00 anually and we were giving an one free! Oh yes, I told Matt that we must go before heading to Texas. The Christmas lights will stay up until January 1st (I think) and I don't want to miss it!

Oh and I finally figured out how to use my camera build-in video!  Wahoo!  This mama is happy!  Why? Because I get to share with you videos of my family (but in better video quality).  I thank the Lord for giving me knowledge!  But now I am having problem uploading them. It's getting frustrating. One thing after another keeps me busy. I'm constantly trying to figure out what to do next.  I don't know what I am doing but I trust that I'll get help again if I ask Him.

Well I have been busy the past couple of days. I'm helping the pastor with his website. I'm just adding pictures. I enjoy doing this for the church. I like to be use of the Lord every chance I get. I'm thankful for the opportunity too!  I need to make some changes though. I'm doing too much. I've made some bows for a friend in Indiana. Next, I plan on fixing my iron board cover. I have a whole lot of other projects such as making my first pecan pie. I've never baked from scratch. If you don't know me, I don't cook. BUT things have changed and I am finally COOKING. *gasps*  It's true!  What's taking me this long??  It's really a long story. Ask me some days or I'll some days share it here. Hee hee
