A cuuuute addition to our repertoire of animals

Do you remember this dog? 4 months ago, she had to be put down because of cancer :(. Yea, I know... so sad :((. We buried her in the back of our property.

But, on a lighter note, my oldest sister got the most adorable, cute, energetic, poodle puppy EVER! His name is Trevvor, by the way.

I told you he was squishibly cuuuute!

He is rather proud and loves to pose. But, then again, what poodle doesn't like to pose?

Uncovered No More

Well, I have another surprise for y'all... my mom wrote a book entitled Uncovered Not More (thus the title of this post) and it is being published by Tate Publishing! HERE is her website if you want to check it out...

Many events have taken place before Uncovered No More could even be written... it's not so simple as how my brother's CD came about. For that reason, I can't really give a 'background' of this book. My sister did, however, write a small testimony concerning what occurred in our family in 2008. HERE is my sister's blog, and HERE is the testimony she wrote. Now, if you read her testimony or Uncovered No More you will probably be wierded out. I understand where you are coming from (imagine what I was thinking when everything was happening)! However, as God is my witness, everything that my family testifies too is true. Also, I know that some of y'all will not agree with our views on some things... that's ok! I don't expect anyone to see eye to eye with me. Everyone have an awesome evening, ok?!

Come Back

Needless to say, I have been gone for a long time. But, I am going to start posting again, Lord willing. However, today I have some exciting news for you!!

Patrick Coffey is my oldest brother. He has played the piano since he was 5 years old, began writing songs when he was 8, and started playing guitar when he was 11 or 12. As he got older, his piano and guitar skills improved and he began to use the talent that God gave him. God provided Patrick with a good, affordable Yamaha keyboard and he began to mix different instruments, thus creating full fledged songs. God kept providing the right tools to help Patrick create high quality music tracts. One of those things was a Mac computer. Stop. Gotta tell a story here. Before Patrick got the Mac he had been using our clunky Windows computer upstairs (don't ask what the version was, cause I can't tell you!) where he had set up a studio in the living room (because we're redneck like that lol.). Thanks to me, I blew the sound card for him. Totally ruined the sound card, and because of that, he couldn't record anymore music tracts. Patrick was really nice about it, but he was momentarily put down.... until we went to the thrift store a few days later. There, Patrick found a mac computer for 20$. Yup! Pretty amazing, huh? Ok, to be totally honest, it actually ended up costing 200$ because of needed parts etc. Still a good price though. Anyway, after that Mac broke down God provided another Mac :) along with numerous other equipment. Around this time, Patrick began listening to Casting Crowns (just to clear this up, we really, really like that band :) and heard their song "It's a Slow Fade". Patrick went around belting that song out at the top of his lungs for the loooongest time. He got to where he knew all the voice techniques used in the song and could sing them with perfection. Now, he's got a good singing voice (Thanks to Casting Crowns and other Christian singers). He kept on perfecting his songs and now, with the help of Tate Music Group, he published his first album entitled Come Back. Here is his WEBSITE, his BLOG, and FORUM... if you want to buy one of his CDs they are available wherever music is sold.

Now, I know that since I am his sister my opinion is biased ;). But, you can listen to snippets of his songs on his website to check it out a little. Have an awesome evening y'all!!
