They're Gone...

Well, they left this morning for their Father/Son camping trip. I am left here at home with Mason and my NERVES!!! I guess this is what they mean when mothers say you ALWAYS worry about your kids and it never goes away. I truly pray that they have a great time, but more than that I pray that God place His protection around them and bring them safely home on Saturday. I have added a smilebox photo slide of them leaving this morning so check it out.

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

Just wishing everyone a Happy Easter today. My only prayer is that we remember the true reason that we celebrate this holiday. I am so humbled and grateful that we serve a God who sent His only son to die for the mistakes that we make each and every day. I am more humbled that that same Jesus died so that we may live and He lives today and forever. Have a blessed day...

~Pictures with the Easter Bunny~

Our MOPS Easter Egg Hunt was this morning. The boys and I headed over at 10:30 with 20 eggs in tow. I was so excited to see so many join us for this event. The Easter Bunny even made a surprise visit to see the kids. Check out my photos. Happy Easter to you all, but above that, let's all be reminded of the price that was paid for us all. I am so thankful to serve a RISEN Savior!!! God bless you all.

Diaper Cake Anyone?

Just wanted to share my latest project. I have always wanted to make a diaper cake. I was given two of them at my first baby shower and LOVED them. So, when a shower was planned for a friend of mine, I offered to make a one. I rounded up another friend to help me roll diapers (198 of them) and the whole thing from start to finish took about 2 hours!

Let's go Fishing!

I had to include this photo. Brady decided to take the boys fishing when the rain finally broke, although this meant that there was a tremendous amount of MUD EVERYWHERE! Well, if you know my Mason, you also know that he is going to find anything that will get him dirty, even if that means jumping over, I mean trying to jump over, a HUGE mud puddle. He was so determined, so I let it go and about halfway over it, it happened...HE GOT DIRTY!!!

Miles For Matheson!

I just cannot say enough about this event! My heart was SO full of hope and amazement at God's presence and His mighty power. How awesome it is to know without question that He is in control of every aspect of our lives from beginning to end. Matheson and his family are such a blessing and inspiration to so many people also giving them a renewed sense of faith and hope. Matheson is now on round 4 of his treatment for Leukemia. Let us all continue to remember Matheson & the rest of his family faithfully in prayer.


Okay, so we kept some friends kiddos this weekend. Just so you get the BIG picture, what that meant was that we had FOUR boys! Now keeping four boys occupied is a challenge in itself, however, just for good measure add a Nasty weekend full of NOTHING but RAIN! So realizing that the rain was NOT going to break we decided to load up the van and head to the bowling alley. The boys had their own lane (with bumpers) and Brady and I had our own. I must say that I completely ROCKED, bowling strikes or spares almost every time. Asher was awesome too bowling several strikes himself. Needless to say, it turned out to be a great day!


I am in complete shock! I cannot believe that it really snowed. The boys were SO excited. They actually were able to use the sleds they got 3 years ago! Thinking back, Brady and I realized that this is first time that Mason has ever seen this much snow. He absolutely loved it. They had a blast and truthfully Brady and I did too. Isn't it great how our children bring out the child in us all?
