It's funny how when we first decided to move I was so unsure I could leave...that was our first real house together, we watched the progress as it was being built, we decorated 2 baby nurseries and had countless family nights at that house.  Both my girls learned to ride a bike in front of our house, they threw out reindeer food in our front yard every Christmas Eve and they posed in front of my beautiful red front door at the start of every school year....how could I ever leave?  We had worked to make it ours, my grandparents helped dig the flowerbeds and we planted apple trees in the yard when each of our girls were born...so many memories. Not to mention I do not do well with CHANGE.  But I  knew I could leave it to God and all would work out.    Funny how it works out even better than I could imagine...I wish I could remember that every time He brings about change.

new house

It's been so long since I got to blog SO I thought I would catch up.  I have been SO busy with life and MOVING.  Today was the first day in forever that I can even remember getting to SIT and do nothing...and it was AWESOME!  SO to catch up...we searched and searched and finally found the PERFECT house.  We love it and feel very blessed to call it home.  Everything worked even more perfectly than we could have imagined, it was definitely a God thing.  We've been in a few months but sometimes it is still hard to believe it is OURS!!!  So thankful!

family fun

I LOVE time with my family!!

Enjoying my life too much to blog....

I guess that is a good thing! Although I do hope to find some time to blog more, but right now I am savoring every minute of summer that I have left with my kiddos...and it is slipping by...

I had a great day just hanging with my girls....we had a lazy day.  After work we went to the library and then just relaxed.  We read some books and watched Good Luck Charlie, but best of all we just got to be together and talk.  We have been running crazy all summer and this day was perfect.  FINALLY making time to enjoy my time.

My chef

Kenz LOVES coming up with new recipes and I LOVE having her help me in the kitchen.  She amazes me with her ability to taste EVERY ingredient I put in my  meals.  I think she is going to be a talented chef one day.  BUT if she ever decides to go on a chef reality show she is going to have to speed up her salad making! :) LOVE you kiki!!!

Jesus Calling

I am so thankful for this little devotion book.  Kenzie not only LOVES devouring every page BUT I have enjoyed it as well.  It could not have been given to her at a better time.  I am in awe of how each day speaks to EXACTLY what she is thinking about or going through on that day.  It gives her exactly what she needs.  I am also AMAZED at how she says "Hey mom listen to what I read today..." and I CANNOT believe how it speaks specifically to EXACTLY what I needed to hear as well. LOVE IT!!!!
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:19

Playing catch up once again.  It has been a BUSY few weeks.  We put our house on the market, we have been dealing with some minor sickness and just the stress of that and everyday living had me feeling CRAZY.  BUT I got to spend a weekend in the OKC with a group of girls from my Wed. night bible study.  It was a great time. Plus, it helped me remember to TRUST in God, he has my whole world in his hands.  I am LOVING deeply, LIVING abundantly and LAUGHING often.  I am writing the story of my everyday life knowing I have a guaranteed HAPPY ENDING...and she lived, laughed and loved HAPPILY EVER AFTER.     
Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.   Proverbs 3:5-6

family time at the land

I love driving out here to play, hike, explore, off rode and JUST BE with mi familia.  We had so much fun. It is such a great time to just get away and that is exactly what we needed.  I cherish this good, quality time that we share.  It is GOOD for the SOUL.
