I'm not counting today (Sunday) because it's almost over :o) And I'm not counting Friday because we'll be up and going before the sun comes up! I am getting so excited...almost giddy! Yesterday was Kris's 3rd 12- hour day in a row, and I was so tired and cranky. I was short with the kids and my poor parents came for a visit and I was totally grouchy all day. Katie was really having some jealousy issues and trouble being good, and by bedtime, I almost cried myself to sleep, I was so discouraged. Today was Kris's first of three days off, and I just can't explain how happy it makes me when he is home with us. There is something about his presence that just calms me...it always has. He has done an amazing job of helping with the kids, cooking, and cleaning during this pregnancy, I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful husband during these past 9 months. We have had an amazing day with our church family today too, it has totally energized me and made me just feel so blessed and happy. We have a great Sunday School class, and have become pretty close with some of the people in it. My friends, Emmalee, Charisse, and Sabrina have been such an encouragement to me! Our pastor had a great message, the music was beautiful, and Kris had the privilege of giving the testimony and prayer for his friend, Brian during his baptism. So many people in our church have been praying for us through our pregnancy, and so many people had kind words for us today. Tonight was our annual youth soup cook-off and pie auction at church, and it was a lot of fun to watch the competition and fellowship. The weather was also beautiful today...in the 50's and just gorgeous! I can't thank God enough for this great day...I needed it so much.
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea and stay a while! I started this little blog in 2005 and am amazed sometimes to look back and see God's hand, his blessings and his mercy in the course of these last 11 years! He has truly blessed our family beyond measure! My husband Kris and I have been married for 18 years and we have three amazing kiddos, Katie, Asher, and Claire! I enjoy homemaking, crafting, trying new recipes, and mostly just being a "mama" all while on a super tight budget! Please feel free to browse through our archives! I hope you'll leave with a new idea or just a bit of joy! Thanks again for visiting!
