Happy Harvest =)

I love Fall so much =) cool weather but still nice enough to play outside for hours, pumpkin bread, hot tea, cute sweaters on Rachel, and lower energy bills =)

A friend of mine on facebook posted news that Hobby Lobby was a christian organization standing up against the Godless and unconstitutional healthcare rulings forcing all employers to provide insurance coverage for birth control pills that could kill a baby.
So I knew  that I wanted to support this company the next time I needed some crafts =) So I went out and got some Fall decorations with some of my first babysitting  pay check=)  All of their Holiday decorations were 40% off =)

 This sign actually came from Walmart....before I heard about Hobby Lobby's lawsuit =)

 I planted some mums, they are tiny but hopefully next year they come back bigger =) The scarecrows were only $0.97 at Walmart.
 Can you see Rachel with her cute little crochet hoodie on =)

I put some pumpkins up on top of the cabinets.

I love this little turkey rake that says give thanks from Hobby Lobby.

Then this little flower pot turkey stick also from Hobby Lobby =)

John 4:35 " Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."

Update on Brownley the Cairn Terrier Chihuahua Mix

Sorry I have been a little absent from my blog lately, between pregnancy, homeschooling, and also I started babysitting during the week too, blogging has been at the bottom of my to do list!

I wanted to do an update on our doggy Brownley the Cairn Terrier Chihuahua mix. When we got our puppy we had no idea what he might look like and so I tried googling pictures but it is not a very popular breed. He is 7.5 months old now and so I am thinking he has his "grown up" dog look now =)

He is very kid friendly, infact he is taking "quiet time" with the 3 boys right now! They are trying to build a lego bridge for him to fit under and he seems to take it all very patiently. He does like to chew on things that fall on the floor mainly pencils and erasers since school started. He is 90% potty trained with only 1 accident in the last 3 weeks! Praise the Lord because I was starting to get a little frustrated potty training him and then he would just come and pee right in front of my face. There were a couple of days I was getting ready to snap a picture of him and post it on He did get chased and nipped by a bad neighborhood pitbull (the same one that bit me in the spring time). Other than that incident he gets along well with other dogs. That is all the info I have for now on this mixed breed =)
