What a great Thanksgiving weekend. The time off as a family is great and well needed. We enjoyed a GREAT Thanksgiving at my in laws house and my mother's house. Tomorrow we will get our tree if we are not rained on (90% rain in the forecast) and then a month long of Christmas music and Christmas festivities.

I'm sure my girl's favorite moment of the weekend is perhaps now as I type, they are playing with the bestest friends that moved this past summer. They are in town and enjoying the evening with them. Laughter and giggles and a crazy screaming 2 year old is what I'm hearing right now:)

I anticipate this upcoming Christmas season!

Well with a possible job out of state in progress, losing our home (I'm not sure if and when yet) and the chaos of a toddler, we are seriously thinking about homeschooling. I know crazy timing:) I have had it on my heart for years, I feel like I talk, talk , talk about it, and never do, do do.

The past couple of months my husband has grown more and more fond of the idea and now I know that he will research as he has ordered a bunch of literature on the subject from certain pastors he admires. He has an awesome way of just DOING things. We are a great balance, as I tend to be passive. Anyhow,
I know I have been talking about this topic for some time. We are continuing to pray about the timing and if it is right or not for our family. I do however have a feeling my husband is going to be all over it once he truly learns more about it.

So not much else going on around here. My girls have started a local 4h and have met some new girls and new interests,so that has been fun for them:) My husband's brother who was foreclosed on a few months back has since been able to buy his house back at an unbelievable price, Praise God! I am so happy for him and his wife.

I have the girls signed up for a local 4H club and I'm/ they are so excited. I let them choose the area's of interest that they had. They both picked arts and crafts, raising rabbits, drawing and cooking- My older chose knitting as well.
We were supposed to start 2 of the classes this week, but unfortunately to many children were sick ,and they cancelled. So we have next week to look forward to, in meeting new people and trying new things.

So a Fed Ex envelope is on my porch this morning and I'm thinking here we go......"eviction notice". I open it up and it is yet another loan modification, worse than the first one they offered months ago. The payment is unfortunately untouchable for us right now and we don't want to get in that mess again. All along I heard the mortgage company would come in and revalue your house for what it is worth today and give new payments based on that. That is what I was hoping for, but as of now, we are really no further along:(

I will say it is the first time THEY have come in contact with me, which is surprising that it took this long, but we will see. I am praying for the best possible outcome. Whether that be the house saved or not. I'm hopeful that the Lord has an exciting journey planned for us ahead and I am getting a little anxious to unravel it, but I'm trying to maintain some patience. I will keep up with this, as I'm not sure what this means. I know that we cannot afford the amount on the paper work I received today. Back to square one for another modification or let's start the eviction process already...........
