THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!! God really helped, and gave Phillip a wonderful trip!!!
~Since Elijah and Mary were still recovering from being sick, Kimberly watched them, and Sarah, Noah, and I went to the airport to pick up Phillip.
As I was heading out the door, Laura called and said that Daryl would drive us. You see Phillip arrived just before midnight on Halloween night.
How GRATEFUL I was that Daryl drove... for it was a stormy, rainy, and windy night out there. (I was so HAPPY to see Phillip at the airport and we were so busy talking, listening to announcements about where to get his luggage, etc. that I COMPLETELY FORGOT to snap a picture of HIM that night. =( ~
I had no Goodwill there, couldn't find chalkboard paint, nor burlap either. So, NOW...I'm making up for LOST TIME. =) I got this frame at Goodwill. ~
I got the chalkboard done and wrote, "WELCOME HOME!" right before I went out the door to pick Phillip up from the airport. =)~
~Then I placed it in my hallway on a chair,
So that ALL my family Could reach it there!(Yes, I meant to write that little poem. =) ~
Each day of the month of November our family writes what they are thankful for on a little piece of paper and attaches it with a tiny clothes pin to the strings on the frame. We let Mary and Elijah draw pictures of what they are thankful for. ~
~Kimberly made a "pumpkin" using her silver slinky. She just pulled it together, taped it in the back, and added a stick. =) I thought it was so cute!~
burlap ruffled table runner, I went on line to see how to ruffle burlap.
Up popped this picture of this ADORABLE burlap pillow with 2 ruffles down the front. I knew I just HAD to make it.
Sooo...Jesus, Kimberly, and I put our heads together (OK, so JESUS DID NOT need Kimberly and I...but we SURELY NEEDED His help! =) and I now have my finished burlap pillow with 2 ruffles on my entry way bench!!!!
It was a tad complicated to figure out how much material I needed and what size ruffles, etc. but we got 'r done!
So, if anyone is interested in making a pillow like I did, leave me a comment, and I'll post the details of how I did it, so you won't have to figure out much. =) ~
Here's the Link!~
