~Enjoying my U.S.A. home!~

Thank you so very much for your prayers for Phillip and Bro. Becker as they were in Colombia.
Jesus really helped them and they got back safely last Monday night.  =)
God helped in their services and classes.

And Thank you for your prayers for our 3rd floor.
We've made great progress, but have TONS left to do.
Jesus really helped the girls and they got lots done last week and got moved into their room.    They got finished painting their walls and trim, we moved their beds in and got them made up, and moved in their dressers...and Phillip got home just 30 mins. later from the Airport flying home from Colombia. =)
The electricity and the insulation still need to be done, and their floors need to be sanded, but at least they are in their room. =)

OK...so I am LOVING being home!!!  =)
Here's just some pics of my being at home, baking, decorating, jelly-ing, :-) etc.
 ~I spray painted this fun basket to hold plates and silverware.~
 ~When Baby Abigail was only 8 days old, my Sarah helped me make some fresh red raspberry freezer jam!
(I L.O.V.E. this old silverware that my Moma gave me.  I tied some burlap around it and love to see it on my little table.)~
 ~I enjoyed making homemade whole wheat bread using a yummy Red River Hot cereal our Canadian friends graciously bring us when they come down. =) ~
 ~I had fun putting this center piece together.~
 ~I added some sprigs of berries and a burlap bow to my bird cage that I painted last Christmas.~
 ~I really enjoyed using these candle sticks I got at Goodwill YEARS ago and this was the First time I got to use them.~
 ~Elijah is GREAT with paper, scissors and tape, so he made this hat for baby Abigail.
As you can by her face she LOVED wearing this hat.  =) ~
 ~I made yummy cinnamon rolls.  We cut a piece of burlap (and then put a layer of Saran Wrap on top) to make my floral tray a FALL TRAY to put my cinnamon rolls on. =)
 ~My caramalized cinnamon rolls.~

 ~My "pumpkin" made out of my cinnamon rolls.
We arranged my cinnamon rolls like a pumpkin.  
We iced them with orange icing for the pumpkin part and the little cinnamon roll stem we iced brown.~

 ~I made this for breakfast for our kids while Phillip was still in Colombia.  Normally we don't have such a sugary breakfast, but I wanted a fast fall breakfast, and I already had the cinnamon rolls made up. =D ~
 ~My Kimberly washed her hands with a Bath and Body works kitchen soap called, "Pumpkin Pecan Waffles."  She smelled it and said, "Mommy, I want some Pumpkin Pecan waffles."  So the other morning I surprised her and made some, only I used walnuts.~

 ~And while the girls were working hard on their 3rd floor room, I made some Lattes to cheer them up.~

I'm sure you all are happy to have Phillip back home. Try to pray for you everyday even though we've never met. By following your blog I feel like I know you :o) Glad that you're enjoying your US home. Do you know how long you'll be here yet? Trust you have a good Lord's day tomorrow!

Dearest Heather, I enjoyed your post BUT I WANTED TO SEE THE GIRLS ROOM! Guess I will have to wait.:) I enjoyed the rest of your post and wondered how you get the energy to do all that you do. Loved Abigail's "look of appreciation" for Elijah's hat. I love that boy, he is so cute. And all the rest are just real dolls!
so glad that Phillip is home safe. I prayed for him each day as he was ministering in Colombia. Well guess I will just have to come over to your house and see the girls room.:) Love all of you, Moma
