A Better Week...

I would like to Thank everyone who has been praying for me over the last week. I have been able to tell a huge difference. I am happy to announce that this week is going much better! I would like to Thank my Husband who has offered a lot of encouragement over the last week, and for the Beautiful Roses this morning "For No Reason". I'm sorry that I had a hard time believing that they were really for "Just Because... to brighten my day." That was very sweet, and made not just my day, but the rest of my week. Thanks again to everyone for your prayers.
Until Next Time,

Constant Change...

This week I am struggling with something we all know is inevitable. We all want a say in it, but life doesn't always allow us that either. It throws constant battles of adjustment & struggles our way... have you guessed it? That's right Changes. The nothing ever stays the same fact of life. I struggle with the part of balancing ALL the changes in life, all at once.

As you can see from my pictures I'm struggling with how fast time has gone by with my kids. I keep looking at Jonah, and remembering how it was like yesterday that was Trenten. I look at Trenten and think how tomorrow that will be Jonah. Can I just say, I'm not ready for that! Change is all around us. For example take a look at the last year of our lives.

  1. I'm 5 months pregnant with Baby # 2
  2. Adam and I nearly get divorced
  3. Adam changes from night shift to days to help restore our marriage
  4. Baby Jonah arrives
  5. I cut back to Part Time at work
  6. We sell are nice gas saving car
  7. Adam changes careers
  8. Adam goes back to working nights (but don't worry we're not getting divorced)
  9. Jonah no longer likes coming to work with Mom
  10. I'm going back to school in the Fall to finish my degree in "Business Administration"

God has brought us through so much, and I know he will continue to take me through all the changes that are coming. This past week in my Woman's Bible Study I learned about turning my worries into prayers. I have been praying all week for me to just have Faith that God will provide for us through all these upcoming changes. It had been a great week of feeling like all my burdens had been lifted. Then last night, after a day of Jonah crying non-stop while I tried to get work done, and situations coming my way all day that I don't know what I'm going to do about. My Spirit was kind of broken, and I found myself worrying & frustrated over everything. So, please pray for me. Pray for strength to deal with what is coming my way right now, pray for me to quit worrying over situations and take them to God where they belong.

Until Next Time,

Feelin' Frogy ?

(Above) Cutest Frog Cake Ever!

(Above) For the Cutest Nephew Ever!

(Above) Don't forget the Lilipad Cupcakes!

This is what I did this weekend. It was a lot of fun for everyone, let me tell you! Adam left for work early because I was driving him crazy trying to arrange the shape of the frog perfectly! I just could get it just right... Jonah enjoyed hanging out under the table waiting for the green frosting to hit the floor. He enjoyed eating some, and then crawling through the house & spreading it EVERYWHERE! If I never see green frosting again, it wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit. Trenten struggled with the temptation to eat the little yellow flowers off the lilipad cupcakes... but we all survived! Kaleb loved his frog cake, & it made my day to see how his face lit up when he saw it. Anything for my favorite Nephew!

Until Next Time,

Bloging Difficulties....

To all my blog fans & friends, I'm trying to create a page element that links your blogs to mine... some are not working. So if someone could tell me what to type in to get Keri & Andi's to work I would appreciate it. Also, it's a work in progress like everything else in my life. So if your name is not on there, please don't be offended. Tell me how to put it on there, and I will. Also, where do you people get these cute page lay outs? I'm really sick of the whole dot theme, but I don't have anything else to chose from? Help!!!!
Until Next Time,
