It's been a fun day when....

Your little boy falls asleep after chef boyardee ravioli (yum!) WITH a bottle of drinking yogurt in his mouth.
Bless his little heart!
Thank you Sarah for running him silly today!

My Choo-Choo Boy!

Happy Second Birthday!

My choo-choo boy is almost 2

As I sit here and type, my almost 2 year old is right outside my office door, playing choo-choos on his Thomas table. It's hard to believe that he's going to be 2! Just seems like yesterday that I was laying in bed, scared to death to be pregnant again, feeling guilty that I didn't want to have a baby. I was too scared to lose another one as just 6 months prior, I'd lost Benjamin at 15 weeks along.
Then in the quiet of the night, God spoke to me. He said the name "Zachary". If I'd just have listened to that voice and looked up what his name meant right then and there, I would have had such a better first 20 weeks. His name means "God has remembered". With that, Zachary, Happy Second Birthday. You're very special. More than you'll ever realize.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

A New Year

2007 is over and we're on to 2008. What will it bring?

A rundown of 2007
2 new cars
1 new son
ending of one job and moving on to another
no need for epi-pens this year!
My son's love for the "choo-choo"
too many frozen dinners
a bathroom remodel nearly done
my kids singing praise music

As 2008 is now upon us, I wonder what we'll find ourselves a part of. So many are hurting with pain I cannot relate to. I'm thankful for God's goodness and grace in our lives. When I look at our 3 wonderful monkeys, I'm struck by the fact that these 3 were given specifically to us, to love, teach and to guide. I pray that we're growing kids for God's purposes.
