Good Morning and Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group!


Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to the chat group. We do have some news today.
April is still in China bringing Eliana home. Please visit her travel blog 'Letters From China'. I know she'd love to hear from you.
Laura/Lala's Babyshower for little Coby is coming up on October 25th. Please help me get the word out by doing a post of displaying the sidebar graphic. It is not an html, so you can just copy and save the image. She is registered at Target.

Good Morning Kim. How are you this morning?

redmaryjanes said...

Hi there, I was just on your blog watching that video :)

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

Oh my gosh my supervisor acts just like that girl in the video. She gets so freaked out over every little thing! I try not to be mean but sometimes all I can do is laugh at her. The video cracked me up. I am so behind on reading blogs that I was planning a blogging day toay but it is so beautiful and sunny out that my bloggoing may be cut short. I want to read them all but just can't seem to find the time.

redmaryjanes said...

I am in that boat too, I guess I'm going to have to break down and figure out some of those blog management tools so that I know when people post.

Man, you boss is like that????

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

I am using a blog management tool and I still can't find time, lol!

Yes my boss is a little crazy. She is usually fine with me but she can be not so nice to one of my other co-workers.

LaLa said...

good morning ladies..I will be in and out as I am playing a Cinderella game with Miss A : ) I hope you are all enjoying the fall weather.

I use bloglines but now am confused about this "follow me" thing??

redmaryjanes said...

My boss is in Wisconsin and is totally hands off. He is really a nice guy.

redmaryjanes said...

Welcome skid loader, are you with excavator?
Are you an adopting family?

redmaryjanes said...

Hi there Miss Laura,

I am getting really excited about the shower!

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

Good morning Laura. I've just added the "follow me " thing and I think it is going to work well for me. By adding this I will know who is interested in my blog and I will make sure to visit them as well. Then when I have time I can drop by any others that I follow. As long as your followers add thmselves it should work well.

loader forks said...

very cool.

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

Ok, what's up with the "loader" & "excavator" peeps?

Kim, Looks like you might have to add back the password to post a comment. To keep them out.

redmaryjanes said...

It looks like the chat is being spammed by some construction crew :)

LaLa said...

I am excited too!!! You are such a sweetie for thinking of us : )

I wasn't sure about the following but that makes sense....I love my bloglines b/c I have way too many!!

redmaryjanes said...

Yeah, let me do that. Hold on. I hate having the password on, but this is weird!

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

I use bloglines as well but like you said, I also have too many.

redmaryjanes said...

Ok, let's see if this helps.

redmaryjanes said...

I couldn't figure out bloglines. I really couldn't. But I'll have to do something. I am losing touch with everybody.

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

I know putting the password on is a pain in the keister but I don't think any of us have our hard hats with us this morning and I am thinking if the construction crew keeps it up we might need them, lol!

redmaryjanes said...

Yeah, I agree. That's weird, I've never had comment after comment come in before.

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

That is exactly the trouble I am having. I don't know a lot about anyone but I know very little about everyone.

redmaryjanes said...

Laura,

I sure wish that I had saved all of Eli's baby clothes, I'd ship them off to you!

You are going to love having a little boy!

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

The only thing I don't like about bloglines is that I can't comment directly from the screen that I am reading from. I have to actually go to the blog itself. I really like to be able to comment on them because I know how much it means to me to ge a comment.

redmaryjanes said...

What's the new thing that is showing up on blogger where you list the blogs you follow on it. Does it track things?

Truly Blessed said...

Good morning ladies!

Not sure how long I can stay and chat, the girls are up and at em early this morning and the boys are all still asleep (and Daddy is still out of town).

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Kelly!
I think our church group is along just great! A lot of work has been done this past week.

Truly Blessed said...

Yeah, I'm very happy with how things are progressing. The calendar is almost done, but I sent you and W. an email about some questions I had and will wait to finish it until I hear back from the two of you.

redmaryjanes said...

Yeah, I saw that late last night but I went to bed. I'll look at it today.

Zach has a hockey game in Holland around 2:45pm, but that's our only big plan today.

As far as I know anyway. The dock and boats are coming out this weekend, but I don't if that's today or tomorrow.

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

Yes Kim that tracks posts but I haven't added very many so not too sure how well it is going to work.

I was just on your blog Laura, your daughter is beautiful and congratulations on your handsome son!! I love all of the pictures of your daughter. What kind of camera do you have?

Good Morning Kelly!

LaLa said...

Well, I do have some clothes to send you...when I was getting my "girl stuff" ready to consign there were a few outfits I just couldn't consign b/c I love them. I will send them on to you : ) Most of them are 24 mos or 2 T but you can use them eventually for little Sophia Jane

redmaryjanes said...

Hmm, I'll have to put a few in there and see what happens...

redmaryjanes said...

Oh Laura, I love hand-me-downs and would especially love anything from you. Your little Annslee is so cute!

redmaryjanes said...

I do a lot of shopping at consignment stores. I love them.

Truly Blessed said...

One of the boys just peeked his head down the stairs and when the girls saw his head, they both went absolutely ballistic -- too sweet! Both of their faces just lit up.

A Mom- In-W8ing said...

Well ladies I have a hair appointment to head out to and I'm still not sure what I want done, lol. I want it short sometimes but I also want it long...oh dear what a decision.

Thanks for the chat! Enjoy your weekend!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all the Canadian chatters that drop by this morning!! Have a happy turkey day and a great long weekend!

Smiles! :o)
Nikki

Truly Blessed said...

Hey Kimberley,

Depending on Sophia's size, you might be getting a whole lotta little girl clothes from me, too!

Truly Blessed said...

Bye, Nikki, have a wonderful Thanksgiving day!

redmaryjanes said...

Have a great day Nikki!

redmaryjanes said...

Woo Hoo!! I am open for any girly donations :)

Truly Blessed said...

Okay, Kimberley, I just stuck the Shoahannah's Hope CD into my computer. I have a feeling it's going to set the tone for the rest of the day.

God is certainly working in our group, isn't He?

Bye for now, I'll pop back in again later.

Kristy said...

Good morning Ladies, I can't stay long because I have soemwhere to be in a bit but Kim I left you a comment a couple of post back (pray for my family), and I just want you to know you are in my prayers. I think about you all the time.

Also I decided about two weeks ago to set up Google Reader because bloglines was just confusing as heck and the Reader thing is working for me really good. I follow so many blogs that it really is like a full time job just trying to keep them all read up but all of you are "Family" to me, so I try to at least keep up with like 10 a day and always remember where I left offthe next day. I did not understand that "Follow" me thing either!

redmaryjanes said...

Yes Kelly, I think we're going to be part of something wonderful here.
Have a great day!

redmaryjanes said...

Kristy,

I read your comment, thank you so much. How do I get the google reader?

Kristy said...

After you sign into your blog on your dashboard and scroll and you will see Google reader , click on it and it will walk you thru it. You have to enter all your blogs but it has been easier for me. I hope it works for you.

redmaryjanes said...

Thank you because I am having a terrible time keeping up with everyone. There is just so much going on right now.

Kristy said...

I got so overwhelmed, that I had to do something. I hope you don't mind but I have just taken some of your graphics. You just have the most awesome pictures!!! Also I just went to see Eliana, isn't she just too pretty!!!

redmaryjanes said...

You can always use whatever graphics you want from my blog. I love seeing them getting out there.

Kristy said...

Well I think I better get off the computer, as much as I would love to just sit here and drink my coffee and visit with you I have teenage "GIRLS" that I have to wake up!! uggghhh! Sometimes I laugh to myself thinking that by the time Franceska is a teenager I will be so old I will just let her sleep!!!! lolol Have a great weekend and Kimberly let all your troubles melt away at least for the next 48 hours and enjoy your weekend ok!!! love to all of you and thank you for getting my saturday off to the best start ever!
Love, Kristy

redmaryjanes said...

Have a wonderful weekend Kristy! Thank you.
