A great day!

Ok. so I will not write the rest of what happened last week b/c it's Tuesday already & it sure was a busy but fun week. I will however talk about my last 2 days.

Yesterday was Steve's day off, so we decided to go for a drive. We went to Lienz a city about 20 min away. That is where IKEA is. So we decided to got to IKEA & sit in the food court to feeed Audrey since it was noon already & had Andre play in the play area. It's actually a really cool play area for the kids. They have a slide a wood track with wood trains & trucks, stuffed animals etc. We have become memebers of IKEA, does not cost anything & once you sign up, you get this card in the mail & you can go anytime during the week & you get free cup of coffee. So that's what we did. They have good inexpensive food & pastries. I love it! b/c u the kids can play & you can drink your coffe.

So now..Andre asks for Judy everyday.This is the pastor's wife. He tells me everyday "go see Judy?" & runs to get his shoes. It's so funny. So yesterday we told him we would call her so he could say hi & we did. She is really nice & loves children & my kids so that's a blessing. Wait..this phonecall turned into a bigger BLESSING! She asked me to bring Andre over & to leave the carseat. So I assured her this is not why we called but if it was not a problem with her he would love it. They live in the country & right up the street there are sheep & chickens, so we take hime to see them almost everytime we go over. She takes him outside & plays with him. That's just soo awesome & so God!

Ok, back to my story. We get there & talked for a little bit. Peter Robertson was there. The guy from Australia. He has been traveling around AT, but is staying with the Lambert's. Totally cool funny guy. So it turned out that Steve ended up taking Peter to the city so Judy wouldn't have too. I stayed with Judy & we just talked the whole day & laughed! Then Judy asked me if I wanted to leave the kids there & me & Steve go out, instead of Thursday. I said sure, however I did not have enough diapers for the rest of the day. Long story short. Steve came back w/o Peter went back to get diapers & then to pick up Peter. Then she said to just leave the kids overnight so we wouldn't have to wake them up. OMG!!! I can sl eep in! Yessss! Pastor Fred was in a meeting all day & wanted to just hangout with everybody. So we ended up staying & eating dinner there talked & laughed..it's so funny when you have a guest speaker & pastor together. They have the funniest stories. so we laughed all night, then watched Ocean's 12. Then it was past midnight. OMG!! I can't belive we stayed that late. But it was a great time of fllowship. We wwnt home w/o the kids. Came back in the morning to pick them up. Stayed for 2 more hrs. Funny how there's soo much to talk about. Then we came home.

1hr later Hanna call me, the daughter & asked me if I wanted to go to the mall with them since she's looking for jeans. She didn't want her mom to help her pick them out, you know teenagers. Funny. So I said sure. Then she text me several times & said why don't you all come so Peter wont be alone. lol. So that's probably the catch. So all did. The boys went to this other mall across the street & we went to look at boots. Cool, ends up Judy bought me a pair of boots that were on sale. Totally not expected. They are not real leather but they are nice. PRAISE GOD!!!! I really wanted a pair & was going to get some but I had to wait a little bit longer specially since you have to look around for the right kind. But this was the coolest! She said she wantd to get them for me for my b-day! My b-day was over 2 mo ago. I assured her she did not need to do this & she said she wanted to get them for her friend. (me) What a blessing to know that we can get along with the pastor's & hook up with their vision. ok thanks for reading this book! hehe!

Busy, busy, busy

Lateley, I have been pretty busy. Well, yes & no. We'ved had A guest speaker come from Australia. He mainly focuses & ministers in praise & worship. He's cool. Well that was last weekend. My busy week started like this. Last Thursday, for the first time in maybe half a year Steve & I went out on a date. Hanna which is the pastor's daughter watched the kids. Well, basically put them to bed. we had a really nice time. We went to an Italian restauratn in downtown Wels. I had a Calzone, oh my, this was the biggest, humongous, gigantic, calzone I have ever seen. It was so funny. It was as big as the largest pizza you can buy folded in half. MMMMMMMM...yummy. Better than Zio's. Yip. there you go I said it. I love Zio's but this was better than the calzone at Zio's. it's a serving for 3 people. So here is a pic of it.

Friday, we have Bible School. I was helping out with the children, but there weren't that many so I went home. I think that was last Friday. hehe! Then on Saturday, this girl from our church came over her mane is Petra. She is pregnant, due in like 2 wks. Her husband is in bible school, so she gets bored, just like I do. So she came over, about almost noon. She brought some yummy pastries. We had a good time. It was nice to get to know somebody else from church. Now I have to say, nobody has better pastries than here in Europe. Then, later that afternoon Petra & Inwere going to go for a walk with this other girl named Anna, but the kids were still taking a nap & I didn't have the car seats. Steve was at the church teachig in BS. Then my phone was out of minutes. I could recieve calls but could not make calls I didn't know cuz i didn't understand what the the message was saying in German.haha! I thought the phone was dropping my calls. Kinda funny huh! So I had Petra listen to it & that's how I found out. Petra had to leave to pick up her husband & I could not go b/c of this, Anna called me. She said she would pick me up. Somehow in between me telling Anna to call Steve & have him to call me it all worked out to where I had not my carseats but somebody elses & called Petra to tell her that I was able to go after all. It was good that I got to this b/c I got to know Anna.

After going to Anna's house, btw we didn't walk but Andre & her son did play & had a great time. We came back to the house. I asked Petra & Andy if they wanted to come over for dinner since they live 45min away. It worked out really good b/c that night Steve was going to run sound for Josh's band (Pastor's son) but he didn't have too after all. YESSS! SO this other couple came over & we had a really good time of fellowship.

Sunday was Church. After church, we got invited to go out to eat w/ this fam, that has helped us alot in getting settled 7 everything. We went to a restaurant out in the country, really nice. They paid. Then they decided to got for a walk. I thought cool a 1/2hr walk sure why not. NOP! this turned into a 2 hr walk, with our churh clothesd & shoes. My feet were hurting. OUCH!!! Then after that LOVELY walk we went over their house for cake & coffee. WOW, what a day. Then back to church after the cake & coffee. We had a concert with Peter robertson, this guy from Australia.

I'll have to write another blog about Monday....etc. cuz my kiddos just woke up from their nap & this will turn into a book. YIKES!!!

Encouraging Scriptures

OK. so I blog at 3 different blogs. Well not really but I do have 3 accts as you all know. SpyMac, MySpace & here. Now I'm mostly blogging here & posting comments on SpyMac, but found lots of friends on myspace. So that has been excited to find old friends there. We mainly just send mssges & emails so that has been really cool.

So I was checking out a blog from a young firend of mine & this is what she had on her blog. I only ckd it out b/c I get a mssge when she posts something. When I read it it was totally refreshing. I needed to hear that. It was nothing but a scripture. So I decided to share it as well.

Isaiah 43:1-4 the message

'Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you.
I've called your name. You're Mine.

When you're in over your head, I'll be there with you.
When you're in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you're between a rock and a hard place,
it won't be a dead end—

Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.

I paid a huge price for you...That's how much you mean to Me!
That's how much I love you!
I'd sell off the whole world to get you back,
trade the creation just for you.' "

Isaiah 43:1-4, The Message

I hope this is as refreshing to you as it was for me. Toodles

I'm bored..right now.

Now, I do ahve stuff I could blog about but i need to download the pic's & I don't know how to do that & to top it off, I don't know how to get it into my blog. Yip, Steve does it all that for me. It really bugs me that I have to depend on him to do it. Someetimes I even have to wait till he gets home. What's up with that. Get on the ball girl! I guess I better start writing these llittle steps down right. hehe. Otherwise I may never learn how to. Then I'll be al geriatric about it. Is that how u write geriatric? hmm. I guess I better look that up in the dictionary. Pathetic. I can't even spell. What am I, 80?! jeje.

Well I finally got my kitchen cleaned. Yes, that's right. It's been dirty for a couple of hrs. Hmmm...maybe 5 hrs? Man that's a long time. But I did not feel like cleaning it. WHAT you've never left your "K" unclean for a couple of hrs? don't look at me like I just fell out of a chair. hehehe! Well, you see...thing is..I just did not FEEL like it. Well that's b/c I finally put the kids down, well, I gave both a bath, fed them dinner before their baths, went for a walk before dinner, waited for them to get up from their naps before we went for a walk. Does this make any sense. Oh yeah, but wait, then the "Creamer Memory" lady came over @ 1. Basically to chat & to see my work. You see she does this as an outreach for unsaved people. Although I have to say she is not so behind the times, maybe a little, ok alot, but she is familiar w/alot of the stuff that is out there mainly b/c of websites. But they are behind b/c there is not SCRAPBOOKING stuff here. Just to tell you I have not been able to find a SEWING KIT or RIBBON, that's right. I did however found photo splits. A bit different but they are acid free.

I found a store where they sell Sewing Machines. I haven't been in there yet. Maybe I'l find some stuff there. GOD HELP ME!! hehe. Well it will be nice to find buttons too. Maybe I'll ask my "NOBODY" to spare me some. Remember when you offered us some of the ones you got for x-mas I believe? Well if not, I'll just have to wait till I go to the States & do my shopping. Well I better go now. My stomach is gargling, seems like fire monkeys? haha. Ok got to run, literally.

A Blog About Nothing

I've been racking my brain since yesterday trying to decide what to blog about and....nothing...absoluteley nothing comes to mind...hmmm..still nothing..

How about shoes.....hmmm nah..how about my baby (Audrey) has the chicken pox & an infection w/ a bad cough & cold that has been making her throw up. :x Yess. poor baby, she almost had to go to the emergency room if Steve would'nt of taken her to the Doc yesterday. So they gave her a decongestions, antibiotic & a suppository for all that junk. (2 day suppository) Thank God! whew. She is still having a hard time napping bc her chest hurts & can't breathe. But I can tell she is getting better bc she did not throw up yesterday & she is not coughing like all of her insides are coming out. Still very clingy but this too shall pass.

I did not know she had the Chicken Pox until this morning. Fisrt I thought they were mosquito bites, but this morning there was more spots on her little face, ears, hands & arms. I guess I better find out what she needs for this. Better than she gets them now than later..maybe Andre can get them too & then It will really be over ;)

Well I better go see what's p w/ Audrey she's crying up a storm :o
