Christmas Gifts

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and focused on the TRUE meaning! My boys got insanely too many gifts and next year we (Chad and I) will be scaling down immensely. Ultimately they just do not need that many gifts and between friends and family they will still get more than they need. They had a wonderful Christmas and loved everything from the Santa gifts to the clothes they recieved! They both have good hearts and were saying thank you after opening every gift! Chad and I were both very blessed! I got a beautiful ornament that I really wanted from Jacob and he picked out these beautiful hand painted bells (the ornament was hand painted as well). I got a Welcome sign that I wanted and great basket that I'd mentioned I liked from Jack, and a Palm Pilot from Chad!! Chad got so much! The big things from me was an Authentic German Nativity and a Artist Signed Stein (the artist also wrote Chad's name on it!) ...Jacob got him slippers he wanted and Jack got him a wallet which he told Chad he got him the day we bought it!! LOL He's 3 and knows nothing about keeping a suprise quiet! :)

The boys each get 1 Santa gift...Jacob got a Hot Wheels Terradactyl Race Track and Jack got a Thomas The Train Electric Train Set. They got a ton of other items as well, it was insanity truly! Here's some pictures from our morning!

God Bless

Ok so I'll have to post pictures later...blogger's picture option and tiny pictures are both just laoding way too slowly.

I'll post the pictures tomorrow!

Guess Who's.......................

Expecting a baby?????? We are! We're so thrilled and can't wait! I'm due August 22. I'll have a c-section, my last 3 have all been c-sections and so at this point I don't have a choice and I'm fine with that as I've had perfect and beautiful babies and just feel so blessed that God's found it his will to allow us to bring another child into this world, into our lives, and into our family.

I'll keep you updated as my pregnancy progresses. So far I'm just extra tired, but so far not feeling sick, which is nice! :) Any prayers for a gentle pregnancy and healthy baby are very welcomed!!

God Bless

Hiding God's Word Week 3

I hope you're all doing well and hiding God's word in your heart! This week's verse is one that I've known, but it's just been on my heart so much that I know this is the verse for the week.

3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

It's definately a shorter verse and very easy to memorize. God Bless

What Christmas Is REALLY About

It's NOT about the gifts, it's not about recieving, it's not about the shopping, it's not even about's about accepting Christ's love. It's about not only Christ's birth, not only his life, but it's about his death on that Cross on Calvary. Let us NOT forget why we have the reassurance of Eternity. Without Christ we do NOT have the security of Heaven. If you have not proclaimed Jesus Christ as your Savior, as God: I AM. If you have not accepted his FREE have aboslutely nothing. Without Jesus you can NOT know love. He tells us that, because HE IS Love!

Hiding God's Word Week 2

How many of you memorized the Eph. 1:2? I'm thrilled to say I did!

This weeks verse is a bit longer, but I know I can do it and I'm sure you can as well!

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, an he will make your paths straight.

Hiding God's Word: Week 1

I prayed over what verse I'd be memorizing this week and well in turn you'd be memorizing and this is the verse that my eyes showed me (GOD showed me)! I feel like it's just well perfect!

Ephesians 1:2 Grace and peace to you from the Lord our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hiding God's Word: Week 1

I prayed over this and asked GOD to lead me to the verse HE wanted me to use this week, the verse he wanted me to hide in my heart and what I hope you use as well.

Ephesians 1:2
Grace and peace to you from the Lord our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

God Bless...write this verse down, tape it up throughout your home, put it in your vehicle, place it beside your computer and anywhere you spend a good deal of your time.

God bless
