Today I'm Thankful For...

Air conditioning. It's blasted hot. Some revel in it - I wilt.
My husband who loves me when I am most unloveable.
A new neighbor across the street who also happens to be a good friend.
Willing babysitters - you know who you are!
Great coworkers. No other people I'd rather spend a whole day doing IVs with... chuckle...
A pregnancy announcement - and never-ending amazement with the God who can create human life!
My daughter being so close to crawling. It's so much fun to watch her try! :)
A coffee pot that turns itself off after 2-hours.
This is especially comforting when I'm at a meeting in a town 40 minutes away and realize I forgot to shut it off when I left the house. :-P

A few more pictures! :)

Her onsie actually says, "Daddy's little Sweetheart." :)
Eyes for her daddy!
My two favorite people in the whole world!

Too Cute (Part One)

We got together with Melina on the 17th of May for Peyton's photo shoot. She is the gal that did all our pregnancy pictures for both girls.
I have always been so pleased with her ability to capture the feelings of the day... and this was no exception. It's hard to pick my favorites - but here are a few to start with! :)
(Please forgive my lack of self-control... chuckle)
The one above is my favorite, favorite...
I think. ;)
I like that you can see Autumn's ring on his hand in the above picture...
I'm also uploading a few to a Facebook album - for those who I connect with there. Thanks for looking! :)

Stolen From Sarah's Blog


By Maya Angelou
'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say.... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say.... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Thanks Sarah!

It's Going...

More updates!
I've added a live-feed blog reader...
I've also added the little "follower" box. Kinda interesting...
I also separated my links - a few of the ones I find myself going back to all the time.
That's all for now.

Perhaps It's Stating The Obvious

... but I've renovated the blog.

Quite unintentionally, actually.

She's Been Working on This for 7 Months

I've talked about it before...
... And here is a picture to illustrate the expression that has garnered it's own name.
Behold: 'The Pout'.
(by Peyton)
Not quite as mind-blowing as 'blue-steel'... but close, right? ;) If you click it, it will get bigger.
(That's my friend and hairdresser Heidi holding her, btw. :))
But - as usual - it didn't last long! :)
All smiles again! :)
A recent "4-generation" picture from our trip to the salon. Sa-lon. Not Sa-loon. (lol!)
Yes - that is my grandma. :)

Can I Get a" Whoop-Whoop!"?

I have had these stretchy, pregnancy exercise pants since I was about 4 months pregnant with Autumn. WalMart special, no less.
I wore them to death... seriously. They were ratty and old and had literal holes in them - but like any security blanket I wanted to hang onto them "just in case".
Well... glory be... I tried on a pair of pre-Autumn pants - and they fit. I screamed a little and hollered for Kurt to get a camera to take picture of this happy occasion.
Me - gleefully pitching my over-used pregnancy pants into the garbage.
If I could cackle, I would do it. ;)
