Lots of news!

Come on in out of the cold, drizzly Missouri weather. Here is a nice hot cup of chocolate for you!
Here to is the recipe for it so you don't have to buy the packaged stuff. Great as a gift too!

Hot Chocolate

1 8 quart package powdered milk
1 16 ounce container cocoa powder
1 pound sifted powdered sugar
1 6 ounce jar non dairy creamer

Combine all ingrediants and mix throughly. Store in air tight container. Makes 15 cups of mix.
For one serving, heat 3/4 cup of water to boiling. Place 1/4 cup mix in a mug and add the water. Stir well. Top with marshmallows and cinnamon if desired.

Now for some stitchy stuff. A little project Jack just finished up.
My life's sampler is all done. Oh boy am I happy it is finished!
Here is the progress on my Quaker style sampler. I am working on the little house on the right side at the bottom.
And now some news. We weren't able to get financing to buy our little house. No big surprise there. But we will be doing a rent to own until we can get financing. So now we don't have to worry about moving. What a big relief and the answer to many a prayer. So we will be putting up the Christmas decorations this weekend and going full tilt at redoing our little house. So until next time that is it from chilly Missouri!

Exciting news and it was all the way at the bottom! I am absolutely thrilled that you get to stay in your home -- the Lord will make a way for the financing because He is already opening the doors to get you there! Yippeee!! Hot Cocoa looks yummy -- its Saturday morning and I was wide awake at 4am and I could use something warm and yummy!

Thank you so much for always popping into my blog to say hi! With all the craziness right now I have not had much time to check in with people's blogs and leave comments! My google reader is SO full right now, it's bursting at the seams! But soon school will be over and I am anticipating a few hours to spend here. I love your stitching and all the cute Katie pictures! And praise the Lord that you were able to stay in the house! That is awesome! Well, gotta run, thanks again for stopping by!
