"Never Leave Your Partner Behind."

Fireproof--The best movie in the world!
We went to see it this afternoon down in Elkin! I really don't know what to say about it; it made my laugh, cry, whimper, cringe...It was just SO good! Sad, romantic, happy, action---that's Fireproof in a nutshell!
If you haven't seen that movie...Get out and see it! NOW!!!
*now I know why everyone was going crazy over it!*
Here's the trailer:

This is great...I can say that 10+ more! Please watch it if you haven't!

In Christ,

The Simple Woman's Day Book

For Today: November 13th, 2008
Outside my window: Cold, cloudy and rainy.
I am thinking: That I could get hold of a certain person at the moment....;)
I am thankful for: My warm, dry house.
From the kitchen: Water fountain, Classical music. (Am home alone.)
I am wearing: Dark red skirt with blue shirt.
I am reading: Stepping Heavenward and my Bible.
I am hoping: That I can stop thinking about something. :P :D
I am hearing: My keyboard, computer vent, opera and my sister watching TV.
Around the house: Sort of clean, but a little messy.
One of my favorite things: My Purity Locket from Vision Forum.
I accomplished since last week: Trying to be nice to my little sister! :P :)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Nothing really. Maybe going to see Fireproof on Saturday.
Here is something special that I'm sharing with you: (I am proud to own this.)

"This one small piece of jewelry has for centuries been the symbol of a special relationship between two people. Carefully guarding the treasured faces that we desire to keep closest to us, it often remains a prized possession throughout a lifetime, passed on to future generations as a special family heirloom.

After much searching, Vision Forum is pleased to offer a locket worthy of such lofty history and promise. Beautifully embossed with a floral design, this 1/2" sterling silver locket is the perfect gift for those special young ladies in your family.

It is an especially fitting gift on a special occasion, as a loving gift between a father and daughter to symbolize the importance of purity and remaining as a joyful daughter under her father’s protection until the time of release to her future husband."

Costume Ball!!!

Hi everyone,
Sorry about not putting up a good sized post in a while, it's been kind of busy around here;
Our goat Charlie, as you probably already know, had had something similar to kidney stones. We took him to the vet, and they fixed the problem, so now he's doing fine...back to gorging down food and bulling Chester around. :)
Okay, well, as the title suggests, we (my mom, Nate, Bekah and I) went to a costume ball down in Tazwell, VA. It was TONS of fun!!!
The ball lasted from 3:00 PM till 9:00 PM. We did Reels and Square Dancing.
Here are some pictures:

Chris and I doing a square dance,

Jeffery and I go under the head couples on the Virginia

Josh and I wait for the music to start,

Chris and Lillian take a brake

My brother, his partner and Jeffery trying to figure o
ut what on earth they're supposed to be doing,

Chuck and I,

I get stolen away from Josh...literally! :)

(We got mixed up and I ended up with another young man across from us!:)

We had a GREAT want's to do it again! :D
In Christ,

P.S. The "blackness" around some of the pictures is to cover the blurred areas...not to emphasize on two couples....if you know what I DO NOT take it that way! :P :)
