My Second Addiction

Cloth diapers. Yes, I know. You think I am nuts. I mean they are just diapers right? But have you seen the number of super cute diapers you can buy?! Everything from plain colors to my newest with dinosaurs. I even, as you know if you follow my blog, can custom order a diaper. How can I resist all the cute things to put my babies bum in?

Fans of Jesus

Ok I hope some of you don't get mad at me for saying this LOL...

On facebook you can be a "fan" of just about anything. I am not really sure what being a fan does for you. Maybe you get special page bling or something? Anyways, when I say anything I mean anything. I just noticed tonight that I can be a fan of Jesus as well as the Bible. Can I say this is really strange to me? I mean am I a "fan" of Jesus? I dont know. I am a follower of Jesus for sure. I love Jesus, reverence Him, and can't wait to meet him one day, but does saying I am a fan sort of belittle that reverence somehow? Like those t-shirts you can find with sayings like "Jesus Rocks" and "I am down with the J-man". It just doesnt seem right to make a Jesus fan club. Like we are Jesus groupies. Oh yes, I know that no one really means it that way and I suppose that respect and reverence all come in different packages from each individual, but being a "fan" of Jesus on facebook, well it's not for me.

Ok so its time I confessed. I am a treky.Not a dress up and go to conventions treky but I love watching star trek on tv and I am currently netflicking all of DS9. Now you know. I am shameless I know.

Painting with our friend Lily

Cassey and I have been attempting to alternate a day each week where one of us watches the kids so the other can clean, run errands or just rest. This week Lily and Thomas came to our house so I thought it would be fun to try out something I saw on John and Kate. They went to an art studio and did this layered painting on canvas. So mind didnt turn out anything like the ones they did but I was still quite pleased! In the interest of letting Cassey blog about this too I will only post pictures of my kids art work :)
Getting ready to paint!

So much talent in such small packages

I blog in my head

Am I crazy LOL? Almost every daily activity I do a "rough draft" blog inside my head. Mostly to see if it is blog worthy and sometimes just to memorize what I would like to write. Even in the middle of the night I do this. I blog way more in my head than I actually do on here. I think in blog...

My cousin appears to be in labor with her baby boy. It's such a bitter sweet thing, but I think God has turned this into a healing moment for her family. You see this is Rachell's sister. Now, obviously the baby was welcomed and will be loved beyond measure before the tradgedy, but this has given them something to celebrate in the midst of some great sorrow.

Menu Plan Monday

Ok so I sent karl with my list of meat without actually knowing what I am going to do with it this week. So as soon as I feel better (strep) I will post this weeks menu:)

I am still struggling

It's amazing how so often at just the right time the Lord reminds you of His presence. I have had Rachell constantly on my mind over the last two weeks. I wake up thinking about her, I go to sleep thinking about her, and I dream about her, when I get up to feed the babe I think about her. About how one day she was here and then the next she was gone. I am not visibly upset anymore, but I am struggling internally. Tonight, I was online and listening to my i-tunes. I have a play list that I play off of and a song that I listen to quite often hit quite close to my heart tonight. Enough so that I want to post the lyrics:

Praise You in This Stormwords by Mark Hall/music by Mark Hall and Bernie HermsI was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down and wiped our tears away, stepped in and saved the day. But once again, I say amen and it's still raining as the thunder rolls I barely hear You whisper through the rain, "I'm with you"and as Your mercy falls I raise my hands and praise the God who gives and takes away. Chorus: And I'll praise you in this storm and I will lift my hands for You are who You are no matter where I am and every tear I've cried You hold in your hand You never left my side and though my heart is torn I will praise You in this storm I remember when I stumbled in the wind You heard my cry to Youand raised me up again my strength is almost gone how can I carry on if I can't find You and as the thunder rolls I barely hear You whisper through the rain "I'm with you"and as Your mercy falls I raise my hands and praise the God who gives and takes away Chorus I lift my eyes onto the hills where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth I lift my eyes onto the hills where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth Chorus

Sorry they are so jumbled. Its how the coppied :S

Luke, Scoot n Boogie

Ok just a bit of a scoot and it's more of a slow and steady than a boogie, but I am proud momma none the less! Now, to get the girls to keep the legos off the floor :S Of course I had to entice him with something he wasn't actually allowed to play wit, the vacuum cleaner cord. LOL

Dallas Children's Museum

Since we have season passes we have been trying to get to the museum as often as possible. So yesterday we went with Colton, Lily, and Thomas. It was a good thing we went too because I passes expired today. It is so much fun though that I am thinking of renewing them!

Keira, Colton, Brianna and Lily. What a cute bunch of kids!
My little Lukey Poo!
