I hear the fireworks but can't see them

it is 24 below 0 and I have not got the courage to go outside to see the fireworks. But I hope you all have a great new year and that God truly blesses you.

Do you believe it is the last day of the year?

Wow, I just can't believe it is the end of the year. So much has happened this year and it seems like it just flew by (well most of the time.) I have been very busy the last week with the Christmas distribution at the Salvation Army here in the Mat-Su valley. We helped over 500 families and individuals with food and toys. We had 13 angel tree locations that Paul took good care of and then Jessica, my mom, and myself would catalog the gifts in and bag them for the families they were to go to. Jessica of course had the 2 weeks of work since the head start is closed for Christmas and New Years just like the public schools, so she was a big help.

I have been very busy scrapbooking also and have really enjoyed the time I have been a CT at the Scrapping Garden. A few of my newer LO's are below. I also have again participated in the color challenge by making a mini kit. Look at the bottom of the preview for the download link. Hope you enjoy it. Well I guess I better get this finished and get to bed as it is 3:00 AM, but before I go I just want to tell you all that it is a whopping minus 15 outside. Thank the good Lord for heaters that work. God bless you all and hope you have a happy new year.

The final month of the year

Just seems like yesterday the year was starting and now it is winding down. Today was bitter cold here and when I was leaving my church (the Salvation Army) tonight, my car would not start. It turned over, but just would not catch. I had a new fuel pump and filter put in the middle of October and it has not worked great since then. Will have to get it towed to the shop in the morning and see what is going on. I just can't believe all the problems. It started just fine at home earlier today, ran just fine, with no issues and yet tonight it just wouldn't. Oh bother, and to top it off, Paul called and said the hospital was slow so they were putting him on call. Now that means that instead of over $18.00 an hour he only gets $4.50 an hour. That really hurts the pocket book. But I know that God will provide, just hope the car does not take a bunch of money cause I don't have it. Well, since I have to spend tomorrow doing things that I had not planned on, I guess I better get some work done tonight. God Bless and remember "JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON", WITHOUT CHRIST THERE WOULD BE NO CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!
