Blessing #1) Work on the cottage continues. Here are my helpers painting the porch. It's getting a little chilly now so the rest of the painting may have to wait for warmer days. I now have an electrician and a plumber lined-up to get the last of the major repairs done. We have to be ready for inspection by January in order to get the construction loan changed to a mortgage. I pray every night that the Lord will work out this time-table! And so far, He has been doing great, by providing me with willing workers!
Blessing #2) Earlier this month we were able to see Sarah Palin at one of the "last-ditch" republican rallies. She is quite a woman.
Blessing #4) Another new niece, born 5 days later, RACHEL R! She looks just like her mommy only chubbier!
Here is a photo of the little doll I made for my sister's new baby. I saw one similar on etsy and made my own version of it. The tag reads "I just want to HUG you!" I will not be able to see my new little sweetheart until February! She'll be practically grown!
