Photo Diary Post for the last couple of weeks

Well as I read other blogs I continue to learn that,
 I am not Witty, I am not a funny writer, shoot, I am just not a writer. 
So with that said the rest of this post will be pictures with a few captions. 
Yes, I am boring. 
Welcome to my boring Blog. 
#1-We moved 
from 7155,
 we are now just in the country, living the country life. 
#2-We attended our First Christmas Party this year, 
It was in Houston and it was a fun little get away. 
Pic Above: Jor, Corey, Deb and Allie
 First Pic Below: Myself, Allie and Jordan
Second Pic Below: Andy and Jordan
#3We stayed at Jeremy and Erica's one weekend and I had a little Photo Shoot with Graham wearing my scarf. Sorry, Jeremy!!!!
 During our stay I also took Marin to get her nails done, she 
was so great and had a great time with the ladies. She was being so cute, If I moved while in my chair, she would loudly say,
 "Corey, be still". She was such a doll.  
# 4 Gus ran away for a few hours (about 7) last week and when we found him, he had a torn up face... (I will spare you the pics). But during everything he has been such a manly pup.
#5 We spent Thanksgiving with Andy's family in Lindale, which was great. Andy and I went to Walmart at 5 am the day after Thanksgiving, and I have to say it was a adrenaline rush... but
 I think it will be my first and last Black Friday Experience.
#6 We recently had a crock pot party... 
don't be jealous. It was every humans dream come true.

THE END

The Prayers of the righteous are very effective.

I write this for the reason above, knowing that indeed the "prayer are the righteous are effective" as stated in James 5:16... I ask you to lift up a sweet friend by the name of Kristi Walker. She as of yesterday been diagnosed with cancer in every part of her body. As I write this I am saddened but I also know that We have a powerful GOD, that can heal. So as I write this I am asking you to pray strongly for full HEALING. My friend Amanda, has wrote some great words, so for the sake of my bad writing skills please go and read what she has written, the girl has a gift of writing. 
Please also lift up Amy (her younger sister, which if I could be anybody in the world I would want to be her...I love you!)Along with the rest of the Walker and Winters Families. I will just let you read Amanda's, I am just mumbling. 

Also Please lift up the Watson family, our sweet friend Illetta Watson passed away last night of brain cancer, her brain has been swept with this cancer in the last week so it was very fast moving  and allowed her to be with the Lord quickly. Please pray for Illetta's two daughter Candace and Natalie as now that have to live in this world without their mom. This was a very sudden thing, so as we know she is with the Lord, which is amazing, it is just very shocking.

So please lift up all this families, that God's light will continue to shine bright.

I can wait to make a LARGE birds nest for a cake, to see if that works. 
P.S. The birds nest is toasted coconut

Two weekend Wrap-Up.

WEEKEND ONE: 
Weekend in Austin. 
It is hunting season, so Andy and some of his friends were dove hunting so I took the oppurtunity to go Home. It feels so good to be home, when I can get the chance to go. 
So during this visit I hung out with the family, 
sisters and I went shopping, went to the UT game, Ate alot....
 I always feel like I am eating when I am there....
So here is some pics to document the journey.
 
Mom and I, we meet her at a tennis match for a quick chat. 
The sister's and I at the tailgate before the game. 
My little sister, Taylor and I had to walk around the whole stadium to get to our seat, but because of that we got to see the band up close and personal. It was not really a fair exchange. 
Go 
Horns!!!!
SO let me fill you in on this picture.... 
At the game it's 100 degree's outside, a girl was wearing this. 
Her boots had to be full of sweat. 
And her dress, I know it's a
 shirt but she wore it as a dress. 
Girls, Her spanx are showing. 
I wanted to tell her but I couldn't bring my self to it, her boyfriend that was with her obviously couldn't either. So I politlely took a picture, said a little prayer for her and walked away. 

WEEKEND
 TWO:
Weekend in Dallas. 
Andy and I left Thursday and drove to Dallas.
 He played in a DBU Alumni Golf Tournament, in which his team placed first. Go Hubs!!!
 We stayed with some friends from college for a
 couple nights and got some good visiting time in. 
Then on Saturday, my cousin was getting married. We had a fun time at the wedding and with the family. Andy and I were able to stay in a hotel and for anyone who knows me 
knows staying in hotels is one of my favorite things to do. 
People, the hot water never runs out!!!!
On Sunday we went to the cowboys game with one of my other cousins and her husband, we had a faboulous time, It was my first Cowboys game ever, I 
know I lived in Dallas for 8 years and this was my first game, just pathetic. 
Here are some pics of the weekend.

Andy, Ran Whit, Blake, Tay and Mom ready for the wedding to start!
My Aunt Kay (mother of the groom),Tay (Little Sis), 
Jewel (my grandma), My mom,  Kendall (my cousin)
Sisters, after the wedding. Go Cowboys! GO!
Oh, the fire, the cheerleader, the game, the funnel cake.... it was a great time!!!


The weekend was great. WE are so excited about this week, we haven't been to our house in Houston in over a month.... coming home just in time to start packing! Yeah!
I am just loving the life of a land-man!!!!

This is what we did while Ike took care of Business...

Hurricane Ike has come and gone, thank goodness, our Electricity went out about 4 a.m., i heard a "freight train" which growing up I wa
s always told
TRAIN
=TORNADO
So this is where we slept
We were without electricity for a few d
ays during Ike, a friend of ours had a generator so we bunked up there for a little while but now we are in Houston at Andy parents
because they have electricity . We had a hoot with
 our friends during the storm, though we felt bad for having fun at such a devastating time. Here are a few 
things that we did...

HURRICANE Wii
HURRICANE DOMINO'S
HURRICANE PICKUP STICKS
HURRICANE WASHERS
We went and helped a friend of our look at their house in Lake Charles, we went with hopes to help but there was nothing to clean up. Here is a glimpses of what we saw.
BYE BYE IKE, we are glad you are GONE!

9.11.2008

Please Ike take a Hike!

We are bunking down here in Jasper. We are not traveling back to Houston this weekend since Mr. Ike is liking that path as of right now. But we are praying that our house has enough muscle to take the storm... even though when it just rains the streets around our house floods.
(Janelle you have been able to be witness to that)!!!
We have supplies, water, food... and we are ready. 
Walmart was EMPTY... yes correct, they are running low on food. 
Gas Stations, cannot even explain. 20 car long people. 

But we are grateful...grateful for the rain, wind and grateful for A God that is bigger than us. 

See you Post- Ike. 

Here is a pic of the gas station.... sorry its an iPhone pic so therefor it is pitiful.  
Also please keep one of my work associates in your prayers, she had to post-pone her wedding this weekend because of the Hurricane.

I don't know if I have quiet processed it all, so I don't have the words to explain it. What I can tell you is that the people there are amazing, and that God is definately there and working like crazy. 
 I am just going to show you some of the pictures 
I have so you can see the faces of these people. 
Amazing People with Amazing hearts.
