She's SIX!

uttermost parts of the sea

If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, "surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,"
even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light to you.

laughing is good for the soul!

We recently saw this guy in person. We dragged the whole family out in the cold rain, and it was well worth it. We laughed OUT LOUD for the whole evening, and our sides literally hurt, I am not even lying to you! If you get the chance to see him, please go, because no matter what is going on in your life, laughing is truly good for the soul!

Check Tim out here, and scroll down to listen to short songs. I am telling you, this guy would be funny if the sound was turned off, he has such great expressions!

bungee jumping at the mall

They begged to do this, and frankly I was encouraged by their bravery!

ElizaJane didn't slow down long enough for me to get a good picture!

They were able to do it at the same time, so they could giggle at one another.
It was a fun ending to a long evening of shopping!

linkage I wanted to share

I thought this was an interesting article, outlining our need for forgiveness.

I am reading this now, it is taking me forever, I am drinking in every word, and it hurts so good!

I would love to copy, I mean be inspired by, this wall tree, in our playroom. How super cute is that nest of birds??

Check this out, soon to come to a targe' near you!

Best birth story ever, and I am not even kidding. If you don't always LOVE birth stories, you will LOVE this one!

If I was a millionaire, and there was no such thing as a bad economy, or world hunger, I would so order this bag, because I heart it, and am possibly coveting at this very moment, but don't judge me!

If I were cooler, I would totally want this love seat, or want to cover my white couch something like this, but alas, I think I am way too conventional! I do so love it though!

There are more lovelies here.

I am thinking about painting my family room black, am I crazy? Perhaps I'm not all that conventional after all?

when I grow up

Yesterday lying in bed with ElizaJane

EJ: Momma?

me: yeah baby?

EJ: I FINALLY decided what I want to do when I grow up!

me: really?

EJ: I am going to have a really big candy store that is attached to lots of other stores, and has a drive through!

me: That sounds like a great idea! I will drive through every day and buy candy from you.

EJ: I am only going to do that until someone falls in love with me.

me: you are just going to marry who ever just falls in love with you?

EJ: He has to be handsome!

me: giggle

EJ: well, there is the ring, he has to get a ring!

me: Well, you don't have to have a ring, but he has to love Jesus.

Ej: yes, he has to love Jesus!

me: and, he has to ask Daddy for permission.

EJ: he does???? I didn't know about that part?? and if Daddy says NO then he has to go away, and be sad. If Daddy says YES, then he can give me the ring....right?

me: right.

1 Peter 3:8-12

Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For

"Whoever desires to love life and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from speaking deceit;
let him turn away from evil, and do good;
let him seek peace and pursue it.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and his ears are open to their prayer.
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

In awe of the magic that was happening outside the kitchen window!

By afternoon it was a winter wonderland, and we were all out enjoying it!

The barn like we had never seen it before.

When a beach family finds themselves land locked, and covered in snow,
what else can they do, but reach for the wave boards?

Wow, so beautiful!

Kartwright and Diana went to get the mail.

So much fun!

I was an easy target, so I chose to fight back!

And to this sweet man, I give my love, this Valentines Day!
