a sneak peak

I have been absent from blogging for over a year now. yes, i have kept up with some updates from all my peeps when time has allowed. :-) our life has changed drastically over the past year. the past year to this date actually. We have experienced heartbreak and celebration. i've included my favorite picture with my oldest as a little sneak peak to see if anyone can guess what our celebration was. i will be back with a longer post soon.

Each year New Years Eve is bittersweet for me. I am not a big fan of change, and I actually have never had a year that I was ready see end. But this year, I was ready to see end. This has been a big year of change for our family. We have been remodeling our "new" old house, my baby started pre-school, my Grandy passed away, and I have been ill pretty much since the end of September. So much of this year has been living in limbo because of our house situation. At times it feels as if we are living between 2 homes. Through all of this I have not spent much time with Him. So many times I have started to spend time with my bible, only to be torn away with other duties, or to actually fall asleep before I have even had a chance to begin. We have had friendships that have really changed this year as our children have grown older and their activities have changed. We have also been blessed by having old friendships restored.

In 2011 we are going to be moving into our "new" old house and making it a home, celebrating our children, hopefully finding a diagnosis for my health issues, and spending more time with Him. But first and foremost I am praising Him and putting Him back in the lead. I can not wait for the winds of change in 2011!!

Our Life Today.....

The craziness of my life right now has not allowed me to keep up with my blog as I would like. With many of my friends from home, this is our main link.

Yes, we are still remodeling our "new" old house. We are hoping to move in sometime before Christmas. The last date we were given was Thanksgiving. We will see.

Soccer has actually stolen any extra time that I have had. Today I am in Memphis waiting for our second game to start. This kiddos are watching Ramona and Beezus and Chris has made a quick run to get some much needed soccer supplies for Clark. I am stealing this time to update everyone on our life. But I am watching a little of the movie.... it is just so cute.

Bella Ruth is in full swing with dance and gymnastics. She is loving school and just seems so happy at the end of each day.

Will Henry is waiting for his turn of playing soccer, basketball, and baseball. He started pre-school this year with an amazing teacher. We are just so blessed. He only attends school 3 mornings a week, but he is getting used to the independence from us and his siblings.

I will post some pictures of our house as we are now getting closer to moving in.

Our 10th Anniversary

Well, we had great plans for a wonderful anniversary weekend..... but an awful virus hit our household at 3 that morning. We had to postpone our little getaway, but at least we are almost back to normal. I just have a summer cold now but I know I will be back to blogging soon.

A Little Time Away

We are vacationing in Florida for the next week. The weather looks to be rainy the whole time, but at least we will have a little break from the house renovation! :) Praying for lots of sunshine and smiles!!!

Our Little Men

Last Sunday was a big day for my oldest and his classmates. We celebrated his First Communion. It was such a special time for our family and friends. I remember at my first MOPS conference realizing the impact my mothering would have on my sons spiritual journey. How awesome, but how humbling is that! One of the speakers was discussing how important the role of a Godly Man is, and that begins with his parents. In fact, our influence and guidance will have a direct impact on our grandchildren too. My prayer is that my sweet hubby and I will give each our children a true spiritual foundation.

I would like to thank my dear friend Amy for the darling picture. I'm going to beg Chris to download our photos from the past 6 months. (hee hee)

My dear, sweet friend Sharla lost her battle with breast cancer early this morning. She fought this battle with such courage and grace. She found out she had cancer while 7 months pregnant with Dane and has been a true pink warrior since that day. Her story is one of true inspiration. She leaves behind a husband, Wally, two precious boys, Samuel and Dane, a brother and sister and her parents. You can read her story at
