Worldcraft Party...Missions Project

Everyone made it such a success!

Ms Sharon is so much fun!!

Here are two of my most favorite Friends, Ann & Gail

My WMU Circle of Faith at church held a Worldcraft Party this past Monday. We were partying with a purpose! For those of you not familiar with Worldcrafts it is a non profit fundraiser for world missions. Our group held a catalog party and what a huge success, over 30 women turned out to purchase hand crafted items from over 37 different countries. The items are so beautiful, the bead work is unbelievable and the olive wood items are just beyond beautiful. We sold over
$1800.00 worth, all of which will go straight to the artisans that handcrafted the items.

Prayer List ...

Mom was unable to have her surgery, problem with her anemia; she will need some test and also to get her blood count up before they will clear for the hip replacement. Also keep Danielle in your prayers, we had hoped she would be in remission in Oct. but instead is back in hospital facing another 8 weeks of chemo God is still in control of both situations and we will trust Him.

Celebrating Michael's Birthday

Today we celebrated Michael and all he
he means to each of us.. He brings so much joy and laughter into our lives. Of course we had to
schedule everything around the Panthers game, fortunately they won so he was in a good mood the whole day. In case I failed to let you know Mike started Mt Olive this last semester, he has about a year and half to go to finish his business degree. He's working at the SECU part time, but expects to go full time in January.

Eric at new apartment.

Happy Birthday dear Eric, Happy Birthday to you!! Last Sunday we had a pounding and birthday cake for Eric at his new apartment, then Monday we cooked out steaks at home and watched the game. You know how it during football season everything we do centers around the game!

Enjoying the Colors God gave us...

As I mentioned in my earlier post we just got home from our family vacation to Maggie Valley, we had such a good time. Didn't really do a lot, got some much need rest and enjoyed the local sites. The leaves were absolutely wonderful, the colors were just majestic. Oh, and the fall decorations were unbelievable! Now that we're home it's time to carve our pumpkins and enjoy Paradise Pumpkin Pie
I love anything with Cream Cheese, Eric and I dream of opening our own Cheesecake
Bakery and Tea Room.
Paradise Pumpkin Pie (This is my youngest sons Mikes' favorite)
1 9" unbaked pastry crust
1 8-oz. pkg Philly cream cheese softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
Combine cream cheese and sugar, add vanilla. Mix a med speed, blend in egg. Spread on
bottom of crust.
1 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground goner
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Combine above ingredients, mix well,; gently spoon or pour over cream cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes. Cool and top with cinnamon whipped topping

Randy and the boys are doing all they can to keep me from bringing out the Christmas decorations; the only reason they are succeeding is because my oldest son is moving into his own apartment next weekend, so that is actually occupying my mind. Actually more then they know, he's not going to be that far away, but still it want be the same without him; he's my
buddy. He's a huge Redskin fan and loves Christmas even more then I do. I not sure who will really miss him the most he and his brother are really close and he and his dad love spending time together. Eric brings so much laughter into our home and when my husband works nights
he and I can always find something to do. Okay it's time to go, the tears are starting to flow and
I don't want to cry,becasue I am so very proud of the strong wonderful man my son has become.
