Okay so I should probably start with a warning that I have no idea what I am going to say in this post. I had one of those mornings where I just had to fight against myself to stay in a good mood. For no reason. Nothing bad or frustrating was happening. Actually I woke up to a house that had been cleaned by my awesome hubby. I had a good bible study time with some girls that I love. My kids were being sweet and playful. Somehow, though, every time I turned around I would just fighting back negativeness--and as a general rule I try to focus on the positive. I remembered a bible study I did a couple of months ago by Lisa Terkeurst (Becoming more than just a good bible study girl) where she said, "Thanksgiving is the secret to attitude adjustment." So I finally motivated myself to put the kids down for a nap and I did what I should have done when I started feeling the "ehhks" and started praying. I started the prayer with things that I am thankful for and wouldn't you know that as soon I did that....my ehhhk attitude started turning around. Seriously. I felt like an idiot for not doing it earlier in the morning. Of course this little cutie is one of the things I am thankful for!
We had farm day in her KDO class this week so Lilly was sporting her boots.
I am also thankful for little man too.
He dumped these out and they both said, "Ohhhh!" at the same time.
They are starting to play together really well. I love that!
Reid had his first time-out the other day. It was hilarious. He just sat there all smiles--like "finally!" I guess he had been wanting to try it out since he sees Lilly in there.
LOVE these two! Thankful for these two happy, healthy, loving kids of mine. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
