Christmas WOW it comes so fast as an adult. I remember thinking as a child it was sooooo long till Christmas and when will it ever get here! Well now it slams me and almost drowned me. All the planning and parties! Oh the fun of shopping! And the decorating! I truly love Christmas I love giving gifts! Watching people open gift is so awesome especially kids! They are so excited! And funny too! I wish I was good at all this blog stuff but I'm not so good and don't seem to have the time to spend on it to get better so here are some random pictures of this month I want to share with you!
I know I know its been 2 months! I can't believe it's been that long. Ya know I really do love this stuff, blogging. And I really enjoy reading all my friends blog spots so you think that I would do this more. Ok enough of that. Whats been happening in the lives of the Bush Fam.! In October we went camping with my parents in Arkansas, Iron mount. It was so beautiful all the leaves were changing. My parents for those who don't know are evangelists for CMA (Christian Motorcycle Association). The camping was a motorcycle rally! I've never seen so many bikes before! Crazy 2000 some odd people were there. It was a lot of fun! Marsh mellow and hot dog roasting, singing around the camp fire! Bike games that Eythan and I got to play in with my Dad and some biker friends. Really enjoyable! Ok one really cool thing that happened. But I have to up date you on our adoption stuff with the kids. Ema has been praying for creative Ideas for raising the money for the adoption. We all have thought of some things but Ema is very..... very... persistent, passionate and creative. She asked me one day if she could draw some pictures and sell them to raise money. So I gave her some 3x5 card to draw on and off she went with her color pencils. she drew 20 or so. We took them with us Camping. My mom took Ema around to talk to some of there friends about her pictures she drew. Ema so cute stepped right up and said,"My name is Ema with one -M- and I," as she looked into an envelope and pooled out one of her drawings,"am asking people to buy one of my picture to help raise the money for our babies!" She was so excited! They, grandma and her, were gone for about 30 min. and she came running back with $82.00! God is so faithful! He blessed us so much through that! Thank you to all the people who gave my daughter a blessing that day! You sewed seed into good soil we thank you so much! May God richly bless you all!
Well what did you think of my piggy? Isn't she so cute! Beauty is all in the eye of the beholder.... heeeheee :0) Well life here in the Bush house is School and ministry. We enjoy the park behind our house. We (me and kido's) go to the park every other day or so. Here are some photos of a walk we took last week. Isn't it amazing how if we will slow down and just be with our kids they will show us how to enjoy the most simple things like tree climbing and bugs and lauphing. I LOVE that!!!!
A few days ago the kids and I were having a conversation about faith. We have been reading in the book of Mark about Jesus and all the miracles he did. Anyway,I was telling them to not ever give up on praying for our children we are someday going to adopt. "Anything is possible if a person believes." mark 9:23 I shared with them.(little history we have been praying and talking about adoption with our kids for about 3 years and Eythan has seriously prayed every day for them for the past 3 years!Without fail every night he prays "Jesus bless us with our brothers and sisters!" Almost 2 years ago we started the adoption proses and then moved back to Tulsa which put everything on hold until new house, job ect.....)Then I proceeded to answer questioned like "why can't we get on a plain and go get them tomorrow?" "How come it cost so much to get kids?" "What are we ganna do to get them?" so I told them we need to pray and ask God for creative ideas to raise money to bring them home. Then I had an idea!!!! We got this funny empty hair tie jar the girls had and I told them we could start putting all our change in it for our kids!They got so excited they put all the money they had in it!!!!! Ema and Ember had been saving and saving for MP3 players and needless to say were pretty close to getting them. I said girls you don't have to put all your money in the jar. They told me they would rather have there brothers and sisters then an MP3player! Oh me of little faith, Lord I want to have bigger faith!!!!We cry ed mostly me at what beautiful children God has given me. My treasures from heaven!
Hey all my friends and family!!! I love this blog stuff! I know I know its about time. Well for those who don't know we are in Tulsa OK again. I hope I get faster at this. When we lived it Little Rock AR I really was in the dark ages!!! We had dial up and I hated being on the computer. So thank to my sister Becca and Caleb I now have a blog! I want to post pictures of our house and animals and all the things I love so bare with me and I will. I'm homeschooling my amazing kids Eythan 9 and in the 4th grade!! Ema 7 in the 2nd grade!
