He has risen!....Lets eat candy!

Happy Easter! We are rejoicing that Jesus is alive with all of our favorite festivities....church, bible stories, fun outfits, candy, baskets and a big dinner in a few hours!

Here are your pictures mommy :) I couldn't find the camera this morning so Nora has the ones where they are all happy but this should do for now, I like the ones of them looking for their baskets, they are so intense! haha

Good Friday

When I was growing up my mom and dad would have us kids stop what ever we were doing on Good Friday between 1:00pm and 3:oo pm and we had to be quiet and lay on our beds and think about Jesus dying on the Cross. I remember not liking to do this and wondered why it was called Good Friday. Now that God has renewed my heart and mind I understand why the Cross although gruesome and awful it is the only way our sin could be atoned for . I could not help but take some some this Good Friday and meditate on the Cross that had set me free from sin and death this is very good news!

"For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing , but to us who are bing saved it is the power of God" 1 Corinthians 1:18

Celebrating 25 years at St. Mary"s Hospital


Fun night at LaPaloma to stop and celebrate God's grace to me and our family by providing such a flexible and well paying job to help provide for our family and do a few extra fun things like vacations and home improvements over all these years! I am very thankful to work in an environment that acknowledges there is a God and where prayer is encouraged and even prayed allowed each morning ,noon and evening. Thankful for my boss Janet and all the great people I work with who are dedicated to excellent patient care. Thankful for a career when I can use skills and care to help others in their times of need and share in a practical way the love extended to me through Christ my Lord and Savior!

Wasting:
the earth, one diaper and starbucks cup at a time

Wishing: that the department of homeland security would all of the sudden become the most efficiently-run business ever and call Matt tomorrow

Enjoying:
my time alone this morning gardening while the kids were at school (who am I? Mom?!)
Waiting: for my hair to grow
Liking: Kashi's TLC oatmeal and dark chocolate cookies
omg they are so good and don't give me a migraine!
Wondering: if Bella is ever going to complete her entire quiet time without coming out :)

drewby outside to see what he built 2day during quiet time. A pool for me. Awwww. It has a pump, filter, slide, diving board and lifeguards (they also double as star wars action figures)
Noticing: that Bella can write her name....when did that happen?

Knowing: that my house is going to look like this every day at 3pm for the next five years and its okay with me because I have a dance to do and a lego swimming pool to go take a dip in....
