Flooding!!!

As everyone knows we have seen alot of rain. Last week the cutoff road I take mandy to school was flooded!!! Luckily i was headed back home but thankfully it was down by the time to pick her up! A couple of days ago the rain was so bad that I couldnt see my driveway and the water was level from the road to half way up in my yard. So basically for a while I didnt have a driveway!!!! Here are some pics!!!


New members of the Okolona Baptist Church!!!

Sunday we had so much fun!! This is the second week we have attended the church here in Okolona!!! My kids are loving it and me too. Well today was the day of the baptism!!! We went up the road to a neighbors house and had a baptism in their pool and also had lunch. Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and lots of other goodies!!! My kids thought they were in heaven with all of the food!!! After the baptism my kids wanted to get in the pool. It was way too cold. By the way this was my first baptism without a baptismal!!!
Congratulations to the new members of the Okolona Baptist Church!!!!

56" HDTV for $60



Ok here is the story of how my husband got this great deal!!! Since our old big screen TV broke we have been looking for a new one to replace it with. He has been searching Craig’s list for a while now. He found this big screen for $50 but it was in nonworking condition! He done some research on it and found out that it wouldn’t cost much to get it fixed!! So yesterday we went and got it came home and immediately dug into it. Found out that the diagnosis from the website was right. Those parts were definitely bad. So he called radio shack and they actually had the parts and it was only $10!!! We came back home and he put the new parts in but it didn’t work :(. He checked all the wires and connections to make sure they were all in and we tried again and it WORKED!!!!! I am so happy!!!! Can’t believe we got a 56" HDTV for $60 and only spent about 2 hours working on it!! I am so proud of him!!!! :)
