Be content with what you have, for God has said "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So say with confidence, "the Lord is my helper I will not be afraid." Hebrews 13:5-6

..and a happy Thanksgiving to you!

Well we hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Ours started off wonderful, we are in Portland (Oregon) and we are visiting our family. We got to see a lot of people that we haven't seen in a long time. The boys did great even without a nap and Wyatt didn't even notice that not a single thing on his plate was the same as everyone else was having (he has wheat and milk allergies). SO...all was well until we left in the evening to go back to my dad's house again to visit and play games, we were on our way just about to get on to I5 and suddenly our car just stopped going, Joe pushed on the gas but we had no juice. We ended up being stranded on the side of the road with both boys in not the best of neighborhoods. We called roadside asstistance and had our car towed and my dad came and picked us up. We don't know what the problem is but pretty sure it is part or possibly the whole transmission. So please pray with us that it is something small and not too expensive! Oh yeah the only transmission shop, which is where our car is is closed today so we will see tomarrow if they are open, so we relaly do hope you all had a great Turkey day! God bless

Baby Bobbi bows

Okay now comes the stress.....I am trying not to do a lot of this but find myself constantly thinking oh my gosh how are we going to do this. We finally got our Homestudy approved and completed and we have officially been welcomed into the Ethiopian program at our agency. I knew it was going to be happening but I think I was in denial...but finally it did happen today, we got our first big bill! Through the denial though I knew that I had to start doing something to help off set this. So what I have decided to do for my own personal Ruby Fundraiser is to make little girl hairbows. It has been so much fun making these, I get to play with ribbon, which I love, and also being around pink and girly things is getting me excited to have another woman in the house amist the firetrucks, thomas the trains and cars. So I am sending this out to all of you, our friends and family. I thought that these could be a perfect gift for Christmas (or birthday)for little girls that you may know. I have A LOT of these in all color schemes, I also have christmas Korkers (the curly ones) bows. I have clippies in so many color combos I am sure that I have something that will be perfect. And also to let you know with the help of Jessica (thank you again) I have a stamp with our logo "Baby Bobbi Bows" and each bow or pair of clippies comes on a piece of cardstock that looks very professional so you can feel confident in giving it as a gift. Some of you may be wondering about the name baby bobby bows, we it comes from my Wyatt and Owen because that it how they say Baby Ruby, it really is very cute. So please e-mail me if you would like to purchase some of these, the clippies are $5.00/pair, the Korkers are $8.00/piece, the single bow (with the butterfly on it) is $4.00/piece and the bow sets are $6.00/piece. And if I am shipping maybe add like $1.00 or $2.00 to the total order. Honestly I have a LOT of different styles and colors so just let me know what you would like or if you are local I can stop by. Love to all and God bless
