I am so thankful for God's Design of marriage. I can't imagine life with out my amazing husband. He has shown me what selflessness looks like and he chooses joy in the hard times and in the easy times. One of my favorite times to share with him is laughter. We have a lot of fun together and he is so easy to talk to. He is an amazing daddy and one of our favorite times of the day is when he comes home from work. I love you Joel and I am so humbled by God's gift of you to me. Thank you for being an amazing husband and showing Christ to me in our major.
On August 21, 2007 Joel and I had the amazing pleasure of welcoming into this world the third member of our family. She has won us all over and continues to shows how fun and exciting she can be. Her favorite things right now are Tangled, legos, playing with Seth, swimming in the pool but most of all being with her whole family all the time. She loves having us all together all the time and if a member is missing she pines for them. She loves playing with her little friends and often talks about going to see them. I am continue to homeschool her this year and I can't wait to see where she will be this time next year.
Well I know just posted about Seth but I wanted to remember the timing of everything so I am going to blog about it. This past week has been kind of difficult for me in many ways but the Holy Spirit keeps bringing to my mind John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. So I am dwelling in His peace. One way I am doing that is loving my very amazing kiddos. Seth this week turned 2 and then he moved from the crib to a big boy bed and today we celebrated his life of 2 years. It is so neat to be a part of his life. So thank you God for your Peace that you chose to leave with us. I chose not to worry about tomorrow but be peaceful!

Seth you are one amazing little man and we are so thankful to have you in our family. Who what have thought I would be so in love with another man in my life. Joel he is pretty much the most amazing guy in my life, but in 2nd place is my little man. I can't believe i was so afraid to have a boy. But as my mother in law told me you will love having a boy they keep life interesting, SHE WAS RIGHT!
He is so loving and compassionate.
He loves anything truck or planes.
His sister is his best friend and hates being away from her.
He loves books and he sometimes likes you to read the same book many times.
He loves to eat apples whole!
He keeps me busy and has a lot of energy!
He is a daddy's boy through and through!
He looks just like Joel!
So at 6 pounds 6 ounces he entered the world and changed our lives forever. We love you little man!

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice. The month of July is a Humongous month of celebration in my family. We celebrate all of my siblings birthdays and mine in this month. I cant imagine any better way to to celebrate then rejoice in Christ and how He has given me new life to share with others. This past week I had many reasons to rejoice in this life. Joel went away this past week for a conference to learn more about what he does and skills to implement in his job. I had the awesome privilege of having my sister, Yvette and her family come down and stay with me. There were many reasons that she came but most of all she came so that I wouldn't be lonely. We celebrated birthdays, we played hard, we overheated, we played and played, but most of all we had a great time together. Yvette has always played a big part in my life, first of all as my big sister, but also a mentor and sometimes even a mother. My kids just love her and it is fun to watch them interact and love her so much because lets face it they may see her once or twice a year. Her kids played so well with mine and her hubby did some much needed work around my house, so I am very blessed to have had them for a week. We even had a scary moment while she was hear, but just another reason to celebrate and rejoice that God protected Lydia from drowning. But overall what a fun and great week. I am so thankful to have my hubby back home, but I miss them and I am looking forward to seeing them again soon. Here is some great fun filled pictures.
