More Snow!!

The girls have had company and we are all snowed it together. It's been fun. They try to go outside and play in the snow but it's so incredibly cold they don't last very long. It's a powdery snow too and doesn't stick together well, so it isn't good for building snowmen.

I wanted to try and do some extra school with the girls but having friends over makes that hard.

Tony's friend Barry came over and scraped the driveway for us. I still don't think we can get out. I'm not real sure how the roads are, many of them still haven't been scraped and we don't have a four wheel drive. We really don't need anything, I'm pretty well stocked, but there is something about just knowing that can't go anywhere that makes you want to go somewhere! :)

We bought quite a few $4 movies at Walmart before the snow but only have two left that we haven't watched. That explains what we've been doing since being snowed in!

Church was cancelled today and that is disappointing but no-one could have made it there.

I've been reading over some of my older posts here on Jenileigh's Journey and it saddened me to see the direction that things have taken. In my opinion I give you updates on how I'm doing but that is about it. My homeschool blog did take away some of our life here but is thriving because it is such a huge part of us. I feel it was the right thing to do, it needed a place of it's own. Here though, on Jenileigh's Journey, I use to share so much about the Lord and how He helped, spoke to and taught me things. There were so many teachings and revelations. It is my heart felt prayer that that can find that again.

Part of the problem is time and part of it is because of things I've been going through. Maybe I can find a balance between the two and get to back to the heart of why I started this blog to begin with.

It's been a hard new year so far. We've been battling a horrible sickness in our home. This is particularly hard on me because I'm not usually one to catch things. I like being able to take care of everyone else and suffer only from a little exhaustion and keep moving on. I guess all mom's are like that.

Meadow started with the vomiting. The virus seemed to have a 3-4 day incubation period. It made rounds in this order: Meadow, Sky, Tony, Me. Then it seemed to double back with a different stomach bug-no vomiting but a terrible stomach ache and diarrhea. This was just something Tony and I got and it lasted several days.

I got very weak and felt like doing little of nothing. I don't like to blog when I'm down so I haven't written very much. I should have asked for prayer.

So, keep us in prayer and pray for healing and that we get back on our feet, physically and spiritually.

Happy New Year 2010

We spent New Year's Eve at home together, with the exception of Sky-who spent the night at her best friends house. Heaven and Matt came over and we watched movies, ate tacos, million dollar pie, lemon chess cheese cake pie, twizzlers and gobstoppers! Meadow had her girlfriend Brittany over. After the movie everyone (but me) played the Wii. I have to say the Wii is probably everyone's favorite Christmas present. I had a pretty bad tummy ache (that time you know) so I laid on the couch and enjoyed watching them. I had a great time. I hope that each and everyone of you had a blessed New Years Eve as well. I am looking very forward to 2010!

Happy New Year
